RE: Alternators and Lithium Batteries

Mexxxxxxxx!!!! I'm so glad to hear from you, and so sorry that you are feeling horrible and so glad that you are getting care! I'm not around here much lately, but I heard from Mr tuna that you were MIA, and I have been anxiously awaiting word.

RE: Is it a sin to modify an antique cast iron griddle?

I understand the feeling of responsibility to preserve something. One question in my mind would be, can you make it beautiful, if you change it?

RE: summer in a national forest

Were you folks like this after the first 9/11, too? Did you make fun of the president when he shut down the airports? Did you call up your congresscritters and tell them you opposed the hunt for Osama bin Laden, and that people die every day and the bombing was no big deal? Or were the first 3,000 people more important than 300,000? I realize it's frightening to admit to yourself that something is dangerous. It's so much easier to stick your head in the sand and go about business as usual and pretend nothing is happening. It takes a lot of courage to admit what is going on in this country, that we are having a 9/11 every single day, 7 days a week, and that you might be next. But I think if you look within yourself you will find the courage to accept that the world really has changed.

RE: summer in a national forest

The numbers I’m seeking, Naio, show half of all Americans are wary of Covid vaccines. We will never get to 99.9% IMO. Yes, that was my point. We are not going to get everyone vaccinated, so we will have to continue precautions for some time. Certainly through next summer.

RE: summer in a national forest

I had covid in March. I had an extremely mild case, didn't have to go to the hospital or anything. Wasn't even sick enough to be in bed, most of the time. In early July, I was 98% better, when I got hit with the infamous month 4 relapse. I got much worse. Had to be on a steroid inhaler for my lungs, which I am still on. Forest fires in September made me worse again. I can only be out of bed for about an hour a day now. And it's been 9 months of this. Most people don't die from covid, but most people still have symptoms months later. And for people who have no symptoms at all, 52% of them have heart damage and they don't know it until they get tested. We don't know if covid is going to be like smoking, where everyone thought they were ok, until their friends started dropping dead decades later. You can go out and catch it if you want, but I don't recommend it. It's not really all that fun.

RE: summer in a national forest

Wow. Arizona setting, on a forum where most people are in high-risk groups, and not one mention of covid precautions. I mean, even if they said that their assumption is that 99.9% of US residents will be vaccinated by the time this job starts, at least that would be something. It would be a weird assumption, but it would be something.

RE: Flying to the USA and shipping car

35-55% have people who get a mild case of covid and don't need the hospital, are still sick months later. 92% of people who are hospitalized are still sick, months later. 50% of people who have no symptoms at all have heart damage. I'm in the first group. I had an extremely mild case of covid in March. I never even had a fever. Just a bit of a cough. I was able to keep working at home. My doctor had me decreasing my steroid inhaler dose, phasing it out, when I had a relapse in July. I learned that a relapse in month 4 is very common. It made me worse than I was with the original illness. 8 months later, I'm on the highest dose of steroid inhaler. I can be out of bed an active for 1 hour per day. Then I run out of air and it takes me 23 hours to recover. I'm alive, but it's not much of a life. I don't recommend it.

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

I came home early, in March. I think I will be going south again, but a few months later than usual. And I won't go as far as I usually do from my S&B. That's partly due to where covid is under control and where it isn't. It's partly about not wanting to be very far from my parents, because they are older. And the timing, leaving later than usual, is because I want to wait and see what happens after the election. I feel like I need to be near my family, in uncertain times.

RE: How do I get a colder freezer?

I'm glad I was helpful! Even without opening the door, having air space makes a big difference. I guess because the air circulates and warms up at the walls of the freezer. My experiments have been mainly about how long I can go without power. A full freezer stays frozen for 3.5 days at reasonable exterior temperatures. But a half full freezer doesn't stay frozen for even 24 hours, even if I don't open it at all. Conclusion: A half full freezer requires a constant input of power to keep it cold. And if the power input isn't enough, it's just not going to be cold. With the low power of some freezers, it -would- take a long time to freeze a bunch of water. I would probably add one bottle per day, rather than adding them all at once, unless I didn't have any food in there to worry about :-).

RE: Suggested locations in Arizona's White Mountains?

Yeah ... it's getting pretty dry here, too. For weeks I've been removing 40 years accumulation of leaves to clear a big circular area around our home - just in case a fire should come up the canyon. :E Can you save those leaves somewhere and put them back after fire season? Losing their deep leaf mulch can be deadly for many native trees, especially oaks.

RE: How do I get a colder freezer?

Working with your existing freezer, I would be tempted to build a styrofoam box, 6 sides, that fits inside the freezer, for extra insulation. But I probably should ask first, is your freezer packed as full as possible? Any bit of airspace will interfere with its efficiency. I pack frozen water bottles or ziploc bags of water in, if I have empty space. I find it's important to fill the freezer all the way to its ceiling, and not have air space on top of my food. Depending on the mechanism of cooling, sometimes a little pathway for air flow, but other than that, nothing!

RE: How do I get a colder freezer?

The one I linked to is 67 Watts. But probably 1/4 the price :-). 120v fridges and freezers have a huge inrush when they first start their cycle. I can run one on a 1500 watt Harbor Freight inverter. Sometimes I can run two, if the inverter is having a good day.

RE: How do I get a colder freezer?

Another option is to get a separate freezer. If you have access to 120 volt power, I highly recommend this one. It will keep things frozen for 3.5 days without power, if it is full. And of course there are 12 volt options, but they are more expensive :-).

RE: Snow Birds ??

I was born, and have lived all my life in the US. I agree that the vibe I get from Canadians in this thread is of kindness and concern. They seem to be feeling what any of us would feel if we saw a neighbor caught up in a situation that was unhealthy and dangerous for them and others. A mix of wanting to help but not wanting to butt in. I am grateful for the good wishes.

RE: Snow Birds ??

Actually, the study of the US Navy sailors found hispanic people were less susceptible to covid than white people, when you factored in things like mask usage, exposures, etc.

RE: Snow Birds ??

For Florida to get to herd immunity, they would have to have 200,000 dead from covid, just in Florida alone. It might happen, but it's not a pretty picture. To maintain herd immunity in Florida for longer than one day, they would have to close their borders and not allow anyone from other states in the US in. They could let Canadians in, but only by plane, not with RVs.

RE: Snow Birds ??

Yeah, I think a lot of us are just waiting to see. One thing that would make a huge difference, to me at least, would be news about what types of antibodies are protective in the long term, if any, and a test to see if I have them

RE: Reddog1 "Wayne"

I lived just 10 minutes from Wayne's and got to spend a lot of time with him over the past few years. Wayne went out in style, doing the things he loved; working on his truck, Samurai and RC trucks as well as getting in some serious play time on his tractor. He was in great spirits through his illness right to the end. I never heard him complain once about his lot having it. Just that he needed some help getting things set up for his wife before his time came. I will miss him tremendously. Jerry Thank you for posting this, it is beautiful. I'm so sorry for your loss, and that of everyone here.

RE: Hauler to get my trailer from Florida to Canada?

Florida to Canada. 7x16 cargo trailer. Insurance on me. Joe, my crowd delivers autos from Ft Lauderdale to NY city but Canada might be a bit further than our drivers would want to go. Something they don't like about crossing into Mexico and Canada. (mainly Mexico I think) I would not even want to give you a price on crossing the border. You might think I have lost my mind Would it be realistic for Joe to meet somebody at the border?

1 bar in Lansing now has 85 confirmed cases from 1 night of business. Wow, those poor people and their families!
