I agree, the devil started the HOA's in the early 70's and is in full push as of today. I wish I had the link; but, read that there is an estimated 55 million homes in the United States under HOA control.

I like that idea, no way getting the car, van or truck in the backyard with the block wall in the way!

I did a check on HOA's in the Albuquerque, this whole city might as well be an HOA zone.

Default Ok, Tomorrow the lock to my r/v will be...

Repaired! By a local locksmith, (but at least none of the vehicles I have
owned were ever on blocks)! (Im too good of a mechanic to stand for
that)! But, I "would be lying" if I claimed to have never used a "redneck-
shortcut" to get a vehicle moving again! (I once used "bailing wire" to run
a temporary accelerator cable to get my friends girlfriend home when her
AMC Hornet broke a cable)! (Never underestimate the power of redneck
inginuety)!

Man that is rough, sorry to hear about your troubles. The only thing I hate more than HAVING to work on my vehicles is HAVING to do it in the cold.

Good luck brother, it'll turn around soon.

Default TM, Thanks!

At least "something went right today", the local r/v parts house had the part
I needed but I had to get it "re-keyed" as it was a used part. And I went
thru the "formalities" to confirm that I had been injured in the recent car
wreck. And, dangnabbit... I had purchased a "mega-millions" lottery ticket in
Post Falls like the 2nd winner did but I was not that person! I just hope
that the other persons claim adjuster contacts me thursday to find out if my
car can be restored! I got one estimate so far for just under $2200 to
restore my car, but even though it was in (like new restored condition) the
car (was) worth $2500 to $3000!
