RE: Gas 11 years ago from a Forum memeber

Analogy time I raise sheep. Occasionally a local buyer will come wanting to buy sheep at $150 a head. But I can take my sheep to a livestock auction ~1hr away where many buyers are bidding ~$300 a head. Should I sell my sheep to the local buyer, out of loyalty; or go down the road for the higher price enduring the complaints of my high prices by the local buyer?

RE: Fireworks

How are the initial solutions prepared (known amount dissolved in a solvent) since white phosphorus is highly reactive to air (pyrophoric) and decomposes in light?

Moderna in the news Omicron vaccine Waiting on preprint of study The Moderna Press Release does have some data. I will get this one as my 4th shot if it is available before cases go higher in our region.

RE: Rivan truck tow vehicle

I understand, it takes effort to back up one’s statements of “facts”; it does provide an opportunity for others to learn something (those who want to make that effort). But it’s so much easier to just make comments as above.

RE: Rivan truck tow vehicle

Since I have been kind enough to provide 100s of links to Covid research you should be kind enough to provide a link to the study you’re presenting (you brought it up, support your claim. How else can we know it’s not vaporware). FYI google scholar is a better search engine for peer reviewed research

North America gets on average 4-5kWh/m2/day, it’ll take a long time or large area to recharge a EV battery. NREL Provide a link to the research

Trained scent detection dogs were found to be more reliable than the PCR test at identifying asymptotic and symptomatic sars-cov-2 infected people. The canine olfactory test therefore appears to be more accurate than RT-PCR tests, for which the false negative rate can range from 2% to 30% Peer reviewed publication Identifying SARS-COV-2 infected patients through canine olfactive detection on axillary sweat samples; study of observed sensitivities and specificities within a group of trained dogs PLoS ONE 17(2): e0262631

RE: What's up with CGs?

Pallets of all origins move freely move through North America w/out any body giving it a second thought. Yes and no. Yes, once manufactured into pallets they move freely. No, the USDA (and countries that have adopted ISPM 15) does look at where the wood came from used to make the pallets. USDA: ISPM 15-Compliant Wood Packing Material

RE: Rivan truck tow vehicle

“Extreme limitations” wasn’t informative. The Rivian compares well, according to TFL, to other trucks of comparable size tested on the Ike. “Refueling” time and infrastructure are currently limitations; the “tank” size is smaller than other 1/2 tons.

The variant proportions by country overtime can be found here: Our World Data A quick survey suggests delta is a very small proportion of the sequenced samples. Omicron appears to be dominate worldwide; however, "Omicron" includes all of its sub-lineages. Unlike previous variants, the Omicron sub-lineages are dissimilar enough genetically that I feel some of them should be given different VOC names. Omicron is infecting (i.e. "cases") unvaccinated, undervaccinated (not boosted), boosted, previously infected, and vaccinated + previously infected. The severity of the infections appear to be correlated to antibody levels that were induced by vaccination and/or previous infection and the time since the previous exposure to the antigen (from vaccination or infection). Hospitalizations and deaths are overwhelmingly among the unvaccinated except where numbers are declining; as numbers decline hospitalizations and deaths by vaccination status (unvaccinated vs fully vaccinated) decline towards the same value (0) becoming more similar. Previous exposure to the antigen is less effective against Omicron because of the genetic difference between Omicron and all previous variants. Previous infection by Omicron BA.1 does not prevent infection by BA.2, BA.3, BA.4 or BA.5 because of the genetic differences between these sub-lineages. I can find links to the above information if there is interest.

RE: Travel Trailer Towing Recommendations

OP didn’t say NEEDED an SUV, only that they were looking at larger ones to accommodate more passengers than a PU. The OP needs to decide where they will compromise.

RE: Travel Trailer Towing Recommendations

"Need" 4wd? Idk, sometimes it's needed sometimes it's a luxury, sometimes its of no use (hence most 4wd vehicles have this little lever or switch to turn it off). I could live without alot of luxuries. We all could, but if you have the means? The best of both (if you have the means), 12-15 passenger capacity and 4x4 upfitted ($13k) putting it in the price range of a luxury SUV. Of course you don’t need the passenger capacity (like the OP); the OP may not need 4wd (like you) if they won’t be winter camping.

RE: Travel Trailer Towing Recommendations

Curious, what percentage of the time do people need to use 4wd in the winter to get around on the roads? How well would someone from WA know the winter road conditions (ability of WI Dot to plow) in WI or any where in the Great Lakes region?

This law was not directed toward rvers. Few, if any, of the homeless have an rv. Or the law was written to include the situation in Seattle. Link

RE: Travel Trailer Towing Recommendations

Sometimes one’s desire for a vehicle and one’s needs are mutually exclusive (example young father’s desire for sports car vs need for seating more passengers). The OP will need to decide where to compromise. Options were provided on meeting his desires and on meeting his needs. Without us van people the OP would be unaware of his options to transport more than 8 and tow his trailer.

RE: Travel Trailer Towing Recommendations

Got it, commuters traveling in van pools are cargo not people/passengers. Clearly no biases. For us, PUs and SUVs are a waste of money; vastly insufficient interior climate controlled volume. But unlike some, I can see that our needs and preferences may be different than others and for those others PUs and SUVs are useful. Perhaps this tread would have been more useful had the approach been to recommend vehicles that would fit with the desired traveling companions as opposed to pushing vehicles that would require excluding family members from the traveling plans.

RE: Travel Trailer Towing Recommendations

The OP wants to travel with 6 adults plus 4 grandchildren; name a 10 passenger PU.
