RE: It is no wonder

I have never seen that prove your not a robot on I had it happen yesterday when I sent a private message to an RVing friend. It wasn't capcha - it was just clicking a box that said "I am not a robot". But it surprised me because I've sent and received LOTS of messages through the years without this verification. On the other hand, if it keeps spammers away, then that's fine with me :-)

RE: Ashby's Law 1956 and solving problems....

By the time those 7th graders enter the job market there is no telling what they will be capable of doing; and yes, may even help in curing brain cancer. We can hope. :) Or they ask a silly question that triggers a brilliant idea in someone else's head.... you just never know where an answer can come from!

RE: Looking for support.

Dear OP - you might find more help on a different sort of website. We are RVers - are addicted to wide open roads and being outdoors. Assuming you aren't just trolling us - surely there are countless websites/forums aimed towards folks who desire the kind of help you are asking for.

RE: is this enough truck to replace my F150 ECO?

RE: Holiday season begins

Yesterday, I had hoped to pick up a few Thanksgiving decorations since we arrived in FL earlier-than-usual, so I went to Hobby Lobby. Not only was Thanksgiving "past history" - Christmas was already on sale at half off. Sheesh. I did find some silk flowers in "Thanksgiving colors" for 80% off.

RE: Class Bs with Twin Beds other than the Travato 59K

Sportsmobile is a custom van upfitter who offers twin bed options - it's always worth a search for that name

RE: Do your dogs/cats watch TV

It's almost as if it is "painful" for the doggies to hear whatever it is they hear... Ed and I were laughing a couple of days ago - puppy Augie was frantically squeaking a dog toy - then let out a LOUD and long howl. We figured he was hurting his own ears? Duh! Something I took as a good sign - they were showing the fireworks after a NASCAR race, and Augie ran to the TV to watch that - seemed fascinated. Crossing my fingers he's not afraid of them next year near the 4th of July - living on a lake means we are subjected to them for weeks....

RE: traveling during US Thanksgiving

Be prepared for heavier traffic - but I suspect nothing can beat our tortured drive south the day after Christmas, when it seemed like EVERY SNOWBIRD HEADS SOUTH....LOL! We had traffic jams in every major city - it was miserable.

RE: Anybody else have trouble packing for camping

I always have a list, taped to the inside of a kitchen cabinet. It includes things to bring along; and also things to do to the house before we leave (depending on the length of the trip) So getting ready really doesn't require much thought anymore - just a matter of checking items off a list. And for the most part (if we forgot something) - it's not like we don't encounter WalMarts along the way.

RE: Do your dogs/cats watch TV

Augie, my Aussie puppy, will watch TV if there are children playing or animals involved. But my previous Aussie Ike, was a veteran TV-watcher. Would actually bark at Ed if he was channel-surfing and passed Animal Planet and didn't stop....LOL! He completely understood what was happening, and we had to avoid high-drama shows because something like a child being abducted would make him growl and threaten to attack the bad man on TV. And he knew every commercial that had a dog in it: his favorite was a Jeep commercial that featured a family out 4-wheeling, and when they get home, the Jeep would "shake off the mud". Ike would shake off the "thrown mud" - and then wait for the 2-second shot of the family dog exiting the car...LOL! He could be sound asleep - and hear the first opening notes of the music, jump to his feet, and watch that commercial!

RE: $600K Of Marijuana Seized in MH Near Joliet, IL

Repeat after me, I do not consent to a search of my person or belongings You clearly don't watch "Live PD". The police have the right to walk a drug-sniffing dog around your vehicle. I don't do drugs/haul drugs; and appreciate that our RVs CAN be used for illicit purposes a la "Breaking Bad". If a policeman wants to look inside my RV, I'll invite them in and offer a beverage and a sandwich.

RE: Homeless migration to RVs creating problems

Watch the uTube video Seattle is Dying for a larger perspective of the problem which includes RVs. Thanks for posting this. I just watched it and now think we should try the Rhode Island approach, enforcement and intervention, in some of the larger cities. good documentary I finally had the free time to watch this eye-opening documentary - and yes, it DOES show a viable solution to homelessness when it involves drugs or criminal activity. Also makes me cross Seattle off my "places to visit" list until they get their act together....

RE: Large dog

Most of our RVing was done with a large Australian Shepherd and a Cattle Dog - both are high-energy dogs. If we were going to do something that they had to remain behind, a brisk walk was sufficient to have them snoozing while we were gone. The biggest advantage? Protection. We had a sticker on the door of the RV that said "dogs on board". I figured when we were parked for dinner at a restaurant or whatever, any thieves who might be eyeing our RV would go elsewhere if they knew dogs were inside. And if they were bold enough to try the door handle, they would be met with some serious growls. Granted, a teacup poodle is also protection - but a GSD growl is probably more convincing :-) The disadvantages? At National Parks, you are limited to the paved areas of the park. Hubby and I aren't hikers, so this is no problem for us. A large dog sprawled in a small RV makes moving around difficult. When you arrive at your site, instead of sitting back and sipping a beverage, you will be walking a dog. And ANY dog rapidly learns to LOVE camping - as you start to pack for a trip, you will be listening to excited whining until you actually allow them entrance into the RV......LOL! On the other hand, a dog encourages you to be more active, and you generally meet more people. I think my life is richer and healthier, thanks to my dogs

RE: Homeless migration to RVs creating problems

I have no solutions for the homeless problem. I think there's a three subsets under the name of "homeless": There's the people who simply can't afford housing, or are down on their luck, but are willing to work and be a benefit to their community. IMO, they are able to connect with the organizations that are set up to help folks in their situation; and with time and guidance, can overcome their difficulties. There are those who have mental/emotional/substance problems who resist any help that would be available because it requires them to deal with their problems And there's a group that simply doesn't want to conform. I have a brother-in-law among them - he's perfectly happy being homeless. Doesn't drink or do drugs. Has a couple of college degrees; and works as a bus boy. Family members have tried to help him, but he eventually reverts back to living out of his car....

RE: A Question Are you limited to life on pavement

Sometimes, an RV is the smart compromise between a couple, one of whom is an avid outdoorsperson, and the other who prefers the great indoors :-)

RE: Electrical system kit for a home built trailer

There is a website called - the couple built an off-road, off-grid converted Transit Van. They are both engineers, so their build journal is very detailed, and I know they included a LOT of solar/electrical information. I'm sure you could transfer that info to your trailer build.

RE: Evolving Canines, de-evoloving people?

I'm kind of a "water-quality wonk" and in FL they are really pounding it into people's heads to pick up after their dogs because the waste washes into the local waterways and ultimately, either the big rivers or the ocean/gulf. I wouldn't even want to think of what the e-coli levels are at any west-coast beaches....

RE: A Question Are you limited to life on pavement

Some people are limited to concrete for mobility's sake - and I'll admit that the arthritis in my feet limits my hiking to a large extent. But I've kayaked many thousands of miles, so I suppose that could count as "getting off the beaten path" ;-)

RE: No one is heading south?

We saw plenty of northern license plates as we drove south on I-95 - LOTS from Canada!
