For those of you interested Only in TRAVEL, I (Jack) wrote the blog between March 2010 and October 2010 during our travels west. We saw the most beautiful places and had the best time in our big truck and little trailer. See Blog Archive below.

Incredible. Just Incredible. AND Fastec Lock Recall

THIS will renew your faith in our youth. (hit "this" to watch)

I didn't want to make a special post for this, but was hoping that some of you who have a large readership would post the link. I got locked out of my trailer in Kentucky last year. Everyone, including myself, thought I was crazy. We had to drill through the lock on the door to get in.

Not long ago Fastec had a very large recall. It was what caused my lockout. They give a number to call, then send you a kit to replace the innards of the locks, and send and ask that you (at their expense) send the old parts back to them. It's a no hassle 3 minute call. Unfortunately, I checked the lock I replaced the old one with (after Kentucky) and it was bad, too. I'm waiting for one of my sons to come over to replace it for me. It's not that I can't do it, I can't read the fine printed instructions. HERE is the link to check the numbers. You can choose the word "HERE" or go here: 


  1. I just watched the video from Oregon what a show. I would love to visit there too in any season.
    Had trouble getting the Jr. High one to open but it finally did. What great kids and they taught each other a very valuable lesson. Great Story. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Great video, thanks for sharing.

  3. Thanks for sharing that, Nancy. It does show that there are some very caring people out there!


Thank you for visiting. Have a great day.
