RE: Louisville, KY to Bangor Maine

I'm a "straight shot" kinda gal so I'd take I90 all the way. When you hit MA there are other slower, more scenic roots you can take to ME but if you want to stay on highway the whole time 90 will take you right to 495 or 95. You can take 90 straight to 495 to 95, cut off a corner by taking 290 through Worcester to 495 to 95 or go straight to 95. The stretch though the Worcester can be a little hairy at times but avoid rush hour and it's not too bad.

RE: Back before cellphones

Evidently you're not hammered with extended warranty sales calls, LOL. LOL! Yes, I am, but I have fun with telemarketers. Feel kinda bad sometimes because I know they are only trying to make a living but on some days enough is enough.

RE: Coffee Survey

I am lucky enough to have 4 local coffee shops within 5 miles and I make a point to visit at least one of them once a week. I am so jealous!!!

RE: Back before cellphones

Seen an article that stated that manual transmissions were becoming a theft prevention item because so few people know how to use them. LOL they are indeed! However, finding them is more and more difficult, even in sports cars. I'm not sure I'd go to the extent of calling cell phone a necessity just yet but as life and technology evolve it may become that way. They've impacted my life in a positive way with few negatives.

RE: Coffee Survey

Go to Starbucks. Wait read me out. Try various grinds watered down 50% with hot water. It tastes like ordinary strength coffee. Ordinary strength, maybe, but still some of the worst coffee I've ever drunk. Makes me literally sick. Drinking water taste varies greatly which has much to do with coffee taste. Very true. We will get coffee as our "treat" when we are out callooping. I like Dunkin cold brew but it varies so much depending on where we are. Have started getting in the habit of filling my big insulated mug with 16 ounces of the iced coffee I get from Amazon. Way better than any of the chains. Wish there were more mom and pop coffee shops in my area.

RE: Back before cellphones

He had no idea how to use it. Of course he wouldn't, just like most of us wouldn't know how to use something that was prevalent 75 years ago or something we don't use in everyday life or at our jobs.

RE: Pleated shades, should I tow with them up or down?

We always put them up. The constant bouncing and rattling when they were open drove us nuts. Never had a problem in either the fiver or the Endura.

RE: Coffee Survey

FYI the pods are now recyclable. Grounds go in one container, pods in the recycle bin.

RE: Coffee Survey

Love our Keurig. Green Mountain Our Blend is our favorite. Tastes most like coffee, not bitter, very smooth.

RE: Back before cellphones

We always let someone know where we were staying each day so they could call the property if they really needed to reach us. We'd also call home every few days to let our moms know we were fine. That stopped when our moms passed away, mine in 1991 and MIL in 2019. I don't understand the disdain for cell phones to stay in contact. How another person uses their phone or how much they use it shouldn't be of concern to anyone else. Their addiction, their problem. The resistance to them "just because" doesn't make any sense. Having lost multiple parents to long-term illnesses it gave us great peace of mind knowing we could be contacted if necessary. The pros outweigh the cons by a considerable margin.

RE: Canadian Camping outlook or No Alaska this year

Alaska will see some impact in the areas that rely heavily on cruise ships but other areas are booked solid. Both the lodges I'm staying at in June are booked. What the remote lodge I'm going to experienced last year was a good example of "be a tourist in your own back yard". They operated all season and the vast majority of their visitors were Alaskans. Cruises are starting up again-with restrictions such as you must be vaccinated. I believe it's the Governor who has closed the borders to ships but that may also change.

I run Firefox and have had little to no issues on anything.

RE: Free Immunizations to Tourists

I wonder if they will start including 12-15 year olds in their plan now that it's been approved for that age. Up here parent's reactions have been mixed as to whether or not they will get their child vaccinations but I've read a number of stories where kids have urged other kids to get it due to how ill they have gotten plus the risk of spreading it to others.

RE: Run on gas

No issues up here thankfully.

RE: Free Immunizations to Tourists

FWIW, although things could change by July, various covid-related restrictions in Anchorage (and a few other home rule / self-governing localities) are in excess of any State of Alaska "mandates", most of which are at most recommendations. Same in NH. A few towns/cities still have mask mandates and most stores have not dropped their mask requirement. We have also gone to a "best practices" situation (not mandatory) as cases continue to drop as people get vaccinated.

RE: Is Facebook killing this site?

There's a lot more than just social media killing our society, but that's a whole 'nuther discussion. I overlook a lot of Facebook's faults. Without it I wouldn't be getting the updates I do on our three-year-old grandniece who's fighting leukemia (all is going well). I would not have gotten a lead on a Gordon setter puppy we are expecting in July, connected with old high school friends or kept in touch with some family members. It definitely has its issues most, of which we can fix ourselves such as the "civility" mentioned above. RVnet is also a social media platform and sometimes we see the lack of civility here-it's no different than any other.

RE: Is Facebook killing this site?

We use FB for family stuff ... RV net for RV stuff. That's it. Same here. The problem I find with this site is it's not that user friendly. A few updates like being able to post a picture directly from your desktop would be useful.
