RE: Watcha working on?

After putting off this project for years these events have given me time and the motive to get it done. Time to strip, patch, sand and paint the living room and dining rooms. The wife has picked out a new sofa and chairs. I’ll be re-trimming the windows and putting up the new curtains. I just heard the California stay-at-home order has been extended until May 15th. Somebody at the capital must know my work pace. Take care folks and stay safe. Hap

RE: We are gonna go camping!

SidecarFlip. Can’t you hear the excitement in this post??? He and his family are no more at risk then sitting at home and going out food shopping for this large group. He’s not impacting you so be happy for them. If they follow the simple guidelines that are out then they should (like all of us) should be fine. They don’t need the EEyore input. You guys go enjoy yourself but just be aware of situations that could put you at risk and take actions early to stay safe. I agree with others that the wide open is safer than the city’s. Let us know how it goes and if you find any issues that we should be aware of. Hap

RE: Towing on snowy roads

Freeway Flyer 05 This site is wonderful at providing great and insightful information. However, you must decide for yourself what advice to follow. I will try and provide information based on 40 years experience as a paramedic, sheriff’s department deputy/sergeant, and Assistant Chief deputy Coroner. I have lived and worked at 8000’ in the Eastern Sierra Mountains. You are required to monitor the road conditions and equip your vehicle and adjust your driving to match the conditions you are encountering as you drive, period. The turnable chain signs you come across while driving allows the State to adjust the “law” as conditions change. The authority to change these legal requirements is vested with Cal-trans and the CHP in California. When chains are required for 2 WD vehicles you’ll notice a lower sign that will say “Carry Chains”. This requires “all” vehicles entering the chain control area to carry chains. You will need at least one set for the truck and one set for the trailer. If Cal-trans or CHP are manning a check point they may ask to see your chains. If you don’t have them you can be turned around, parked, or cited, at the officer's discretion. In many conditions you can get your truck and trailer going with little effort without chains. However, contrary to many people’s belief the chains are not to get you moving they are for control. Chains are more important on your truck and trailer when attempting to brake or corner. The last thing you want is a 15K-20K package sliding on ice while attempting to stop or turn to avoid an accident/object ahead. Likewise, having the truck chained and not the trailer will make for a wild ride when the truck is able to stop/turn but the trailer has no traction. When I first locate to this area all 4X4’s chained the front axles. This provided positive steering and braking. I rarely see this anymore. Also, please inspect your vehicle to see where you have the most clearance should you break a chain while moving. ABS and other safety equipment can be damage by a flapping broken chain. I would also suggest the idea of stopping in bad weather. One consideration is to get off the road and into a parking space such as a rest area or parking lot. If you stop along the roadway another clown without chains can lose control and slide into you. Enjoy your winter travels as you enjoy the activities available during this time of year. Just plan on extra time and don’t be sorry, just chain up.
