RE: What does tire date code '5317' mean?

The 53 is because December 31, 2017 was on a Sunday, therefore entering a 53rd week. Code numbers for the month range from 01-53 for that reason. You just made that up??? :B No. Actually Pope Gregory XIII introduced the calendar in the 1500s. I wasn't born until the 1950s. He was one smart Pontiff, figuring out tire date codes back then. :B

RE: Midnight Sun Festival - Fairbanks

We stayed there (in the parking lot campground) in September 2016. Interesting place. I just remember all the buses parked at the end of the lot, and there was something food related going on, but memory fails me as to what it was? The buses were possibly from the local hotels and campgrounds that were being people to the Salmon Bake. The Salmon is a very popular. I been to the bake on four occasions and seen the buses unload but not to worry the passengers already have food tickets and it is only a momentary slow down of the food lines because the Salmon Bake staff keep the food coming.se I would describe the Salmon Bake as a self service buffet that has separate salad bars, drink bars, hot food grill area, and a desert building. It has indoor and outdoor seating. I found this on the web: Alaska Salmon Bake Seafood in Fairbanks Hungry souls should take in the touristy, tasty, tongue-in-cheek salmon bake at Pioneer Park, which serves all-you-can-eat grilled salmon, halibut, cod, prime rib and countless sides. A $6 shuttle bus is available from major hotels. LeRoy That's what it was, a salmon bake. Thanks, LeRoy.

Also while in Fairbanks check out Pioneer Park: its relocated log homes and museums, and enjoy a wonderful meal at the "Salmon Bake" while you are there.

RE: Fairbanks-June or August/Sept

I would go later in the year, in June the bugs are brutal. The black flies have landing lights and take on two drums of fuel. Great summation. Funny, and terrifying, at the same time.:E:B

RE: Shower stall caulking.

As long as the walls overlap the pan on the interior side of the pan, it's probably not necessary, except in the even of an overflow in the shower pan itself, but that would be another issue entirely. That caulking would then be the least of your worries.

RE: I need some SIM card schoolin....

I have a dual SIM phone (bought at Staples in Canada) and I have a Canadian SIM card and an AT&T SIM card in it. I mostly use the AT&T service even here in Canada as they pair with Rogers and I get more data for less $$ than I could with Rogers. I also use the phone as a WiFi hot spot both in the US and Canada. I used a campsite in the US as my address for AT&T and I pay with my US$ credit card issued by a Canadian bank. I note that AT&T have a good deal at WalMart on phones and plans, here is the link: Link Maybe a friend down there can get you one! 1) That's where we got our Asus Laser 2 with dual SIM. Very good little phone and the wifi/network card/adapter in it is incredible at connecting to anything, anywhere. 2) AT&T does reciprocate with Rogers, and we use it almost more than our 2 Canadian numbers on Speak Out 711. The coverage is pretty good except in northern BC, and Yukon, where Rogers towers are scarce. SO711 also uses Rogers. T-Mobile uses Bell/Telus towers in Canada, so we're covered up here too. 3) We pay our prepaid plans online, with a Canadian "no forex conversion fees" credit card, and typically, any US service that requires a US address, can either be the store's address where you buy the product (they usually don't care about this), or my US shipper/receiver's address will also do.

RE: I need some SIM card schoolin....

I think the T-Mobile $3 plan is gone It still exists, as Ultra Mobile, which is now a partner with T-Mobile. I got it when it was T-Mobile prepaid. https://www.ultramobile.com/paygo/?icid=WMM_TMNG_PPEULTRA_O6BDJUPVQ5RM3G9P617763

RE: I need some SIM card schoolin....

Hi Mike, I get 22 gigs of Data including unlimited no long distance calling with unlimited messaging in a Canada-USA plan from Bell for $95.00 and tax. The plan allows for tethering. I don't think that is financial suicide. Hi Don, I know, I was just playing silly bugger, which is something I excel at. That doesn't sound too bad - is that with or without tax? That's the killer up here. I saw some Canadian plans for even less, with around 10GB at full speed before the throttling starts. How bad is 512 kbps speed? Are we talking molasses in January? Some of these, while in the US, might be better for longer travels in the US, but short term postpaid. Some include Canadian coverage, but there's usually a caveat about percentage of usage in the US has to exceed usage outside the States. How closely that is monitored, I have no idea. If you live on the border (like I do) that might factor into the decision. https://www.t-mobile.com/cell-phone-plans/unlimited-55-senior-discount-plans These prepaid plans are pretty simple, and you can add unlimited data for a few dollars more. https://prepaid.t-mobile.com/prepaid-plans Even with the 1.3? % forex rate, they're cheaper than ours, in most cases.

RE: I need some SIM card schoolin....

Gary, admit it, my advice is the cheapest and simplest option out there. Trying to roam in the US on a Canadian carrier's plan is financial suicide. The best option is use a US carrier while in the US. T-Mobile has the best talk/text/data plans (although AT&T Verizon have decent unlimited plans, too) for short term usage, and if you decide to go back next year, you can keep the same number for US$3/month so you don't have to start from scratch. Their coverage area isn't as good, but the downside of that depends on where you're snowbirding. It might not matter at all. C'mon, you know I'm right.....:C

RE: I need some SIM card schoolin....

If all you need is talk and text, T-mobile has a prepaid plan for $3/month, that gives you one of their SIM cards in the size you need, and 30 minutes of airtime or 30 text messages included per month. You just throw some cash on the account, and they debit it US$3/month, or whatever amount your usage is over the 30 minutes/30 SMS per month. The nice part about this prepaid plan is, Canadians can "park" a US number for US$3/month, and use it the next time you're south of the 49th. If data is your pleasure too, then T-Mobile also has some pretty good unlimited talk/text/data plans too. Not sure on pricing, as we don't do data, but they're better than our Canadian "unlimited" plans. The down side of T-Mobile is their coverage isn't as broad as Verizon or AT&T. They were talking about merging with Sprint, but I don't know where that stands, as it might increase their coverage areas. We have one T-Mobile number and one AT&T, to cover the coverage bases. The AT&T is a prepaid, US$100 annually, good for 365 days of whatever. Think "dual SIM" card phones, and see if you can get one (two?) before you go. You can find them on Amazon, but be careful and read the fine print to make sure you're getting the dual SIM version. A little homework helps. It makes life crossing the border so much easier. I have an LG H990DS that has it, and my co-pilot has an Asus Zenphone Laser, same deal. 2 SIM card slots, no hassles.

RE: Inverter Generators

I had the Honda EU200i and was happy with the performance. I didn’t like having to clean the carb so many times though. I'm thinking you didn't bother to drain the carburetor before long periods of non-use. LOL.. you can write petcock, but you can't write pet **** I noticed that.

RE: Reversible Vent Fan

My Maxx Air only expels air, as it's uni-directional. I wish it had a reversible motor, as it is sometimes useful to be able to draw cooler or warmer air from outside, in.

RE: Alaska cancels Prince Rupert, B.C., ferry service

Geeezus...stop pouting because Canadian laws apply in Canada. Gary Haupt Canadian laws are a pita and usually legislative overkill. Decades of bureaucrats writing them, without sensible oversight, has created a labyrinth of redundancy and confusion. Just sayin'. They actually state in the Canada Firearms Act that foreign "guests" are allowed to carry/transport/store/etc. while in our country, in many cases. Which begs the question, why not CBP agents in Prince Rupert? Local bylaw? BC provincial law? Nothing to do with firearms in Canada would surprise me now since the Trudeau/Goodale/Blair trio got their mitts on it. Just makes the topic all the more confusing. Doesn't affect me directly, so I'm done. Good luck with it BC, you'll need it.
