RE: Reddog1 "Wayne"

Bigfootford, thanks for posting the photos of Wayne. That is just about how I pictured him. I wish I had met Wayne in person over the years I knew him via the forum. Brad

RE: Reddog1 "Wayne"

Well, as many of you know (excluding Admin) I was the first RV.net Truck Camper Forum mod. I did that job for 5 or 6 years until it became too much for me. I asked Admin for help. Admin selected Wayne as the co-mod. Wayne was a perfect fit. He and I got along great and Wayne’s presence and support allowed me to stay another 5 or 6 years until it was finally time for me to go. Wayne continued for another 3 or 4 years after I left before he passed the torch to the next TC Mod. I really liked working with Wayne because we both shared the same philosophy on doing as little moderation as possible and giving the members as much freedom as possible. We first looked for a reason not to moderator a member’s post instead of looking for a reason to screw around with it for some minor reason. I’ve always thought of forums as living breathing things and an overbearing nitpicking moderator can choke the life out of a forum; forums need room and freedom to breath. Wayne and I both focused our time more on trolls, bullies, and folks trying to use the forum to benefit themselves financially. After I left, Wayne and I still exchanged emails. I first learned of his serious illness several months ago. I knew it was very serious, but he was always incredibly positive in his communication. I had not heard from him in a few weeks and I just sent him an email on Wednesday to check on him....then I found this thread on the forum. I once stood by the bedside of a close friend dying of lung cancer. He told me that he had wasted his life. While I did not agree with that at all, I still thought how sad it was that someone would think that in their final days. Separated by 2,500 miles, I did not know a lot about Wayne, but I do know he did not waste his life. As others have said, he was always eager to help anyone in need of help. He helped me last several more years as forum co-mod and he offered our jeep club a spot on his property to camp when we planned to go out West to the Rubicon Trail. But Wayne’s biggest impact on helping others was his roll as instructor at San Quentin Prison. I’m sure there are countless people who were able to turn their life around with the lessons Wayne taught them in his classroom. He will be missed. While I swapped 1,000’s of emails/messages with Wayne and spoke to him on the phone several times, I never met him in person. If anyone has a photo or video of Wayne they could post, I would appreciate it. Bigfootford, Thanks for posting that video of Wayne on the Rubicon Trail getting some air in his Zuki. He told me about his rig many times and I told him about mine. I tried many times to get Wayne to join us in Silverton, Colorado one summer, but the timing never worked out. As NRALIFR posted, “Wayne was a good member, moderator, and person.” Enough said. Brad

RE: Timbren SES

We had Tembrens on our 2006 F350 drw. We also have them on our 2018 F350. While they are not the "perfect" solution, they did limit rear sag and they added road stability over our stock suspension.

RE: truck swerved with hard braking

I would say you likely need new oem pads on front along with your front rotors turned or replaced.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

It's NOT official. I could NOT find such a link on the CDC site. My understanding is the CDC is "considering" changing their recomendation for healthy folks to start wearing masks when outside their home. Me thinks that has always been a good idea, but the Gov't did not want to recomend it earlier due to the mask shortage. If 330 million people went out and tried to buy masks a month ago, there would have been none left for health workers. I believe masks give some limited protection for healthy people. A lot of Japanese were wearing masks in crowds long before the virus.

And any doctor who is not a rheumatologist or internal medicine specialist who Rx cloroquine ARALEN, and does not demand the patient undergo a FULL PANEL blood test every 90 days does not belong Rxing the cloroquine in the first place. https://video.foxnews.com/v/6145087993001#sp=show-clips

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

The CDC, John Hopkins, Oxford, and even New York City and a lot of others are taking HCQ and Azithromycin seriously. Lots of medical trials have begun already. There are several first hand patients that are telling of their own success. No one is saying it's the silver bullet but their is no room to not take is seriously. CDC John Hopkins Oxford and New York City I agree and we should know by next week how well it works.

RE: Corona Virus and RV Travel Video

A salesman is driving down a country road and breaks down a little ways away from a farmhouse, so he walks up the driveway to see if he can use the phone. In the front yard, he finds the farmer, who is picking up a pig and holding it up so the pig can bite an apple off the tree. The farmer puts the pig down while the pig eats the apple, and then picks the pig up again so the pig can get another apple. This goes on for about five minutes while the salesman watches -- pick the pig up, get the apple, put the pig down -- about half a dozen times. Finally the salesman can't stand it, and says to the farmer, "Wouldn't it save a lot of time if you just shook the tree and let the pig eat the apples off the ground?!?" The farmer looks at the salesman and says, "What's time to a pig?"

RE: Corona Virus and RV Travel Video

The US response has been great. If you want to see a bad response, look at Italy. The government ain't your daddy, they can't protect everyone from everything all the time.

Hopefully this train wreck will turn around soon. It would be a big improvement if they could just get some hand sanitizer back on the shelf.

RE: Corona Virus and RV Travel Video

Yes, the health and welfare of the many small people who elected me to this high office is a heavy responsibility to bare. The market has gone crazy, but if you happen to be sitting on some cash and have some guts and a year or three, it is hell of a buying opportunity.

RE: Corona Virus and RV Travel Video

People are losing their minds over this hyped-up Coronavirus. It's a complete hoax. Not enuf people are dying to make this virus relevant. The N1H1 killed 12,000 people before the prior president took any action. Yet there was no hoarding, no closing of schools and churches, no closing of bars and restaurants, no panic, no nothing. What makes Coronavirus worthy of destroying the US? 3 Things make it bad: 1) It is at least 3 times more contageous than "normal" flu. 2) Many people will be contageous days before showing any symptoms or knowing they have it. Some will never shows any symptoms, but still be contageous. These folks will spread it into the elderly high risk population. 3) It is 10 to 20 times more fatal than "normal" flu. So, instead of 1 out of 1,000 infected people dying, 1 or 2 out of 100 will assume room temperature. 4) Even if you survive, it can leave permanent lung scaring that can reduce lung capacity by 20% to 30%. Oops, that's 4. :) Its no hoax. It is real. It is a killer and it is headed your way.

We have already canceled our jeep trip to Silverton, Co this summer due to covid 19.

RE: Best *mid priced* Kinetic Recovery Rope?

Also - judging from their website - the Jamie Davis Heavy Rescue company is primarily a TOWING company - and for towing I can see how a conventional tow strap would often be preferable. You need to watch the show before posting about it. Their show is 95% about recovery, that is the only interesting part about it. Any idiot can drive the tow truck back to the shop. I've been heavily involved in offroad since the early 70's. I have participated in hundreds of offroad recoveries. I have never once seen one of those stretchy ropes used on the trail for anything. 99% of the time the equipment used for offroad recovery is some combination of winches, recovery straps, tree straps and d-rings. But, its your money, buy what you want. Good luck, bradw

RE: Best *mid priced* Kinetic Recovery Rope?

My suggestion would be two 30' x 3" standard recovery straps and a couple of D-rings.

RE: New Ford 7.3 Gas

If you do one thing, test drive the 4.30 gears and the 3.73 gears before ordering. I test drove 3.55 and 4.10 gears in an F350 V10 gasser many years ago. The 3.55 gears made that truck a slug. I got out pulled by a 4 cyl Camry on I-65 in downtown Birmingham. The 4.10 geared truck was a rocket. Good luck, bradw
