RE: Chromebook questions

Mr Ed, you might want to try mail order. I like Best Buy, because they have a very liberal return policy. If you don't like the computer you can send it back!

RE: Traveling the summer

I don't expect to go anywhere until there is a vaccine. We're starting to get problems with the supply chain. Dairy farmers are being told to compost their milk, because the truck drivers are sick and can't take the milk to the stores. I think things are going to be a little bit weird for a while.

RE: Idea for filtered air into the RV

I spent this winter in valley fever area, so I used a HEPA air filter machine in my van. Rather than drawing air in from the outside, it recirculated the air within the van, and filtered it. As a bonus, it also circulated the warm air from the heater very well, and got rid of the smoke quickly when I burned a lamb chop :-)

RE: 50 Amp Receptacle to Inverter

Where did you find a 3000 watt PSW inverter for $300? I might be interested. I would only need the high wattage for a second or two at a time, when both my freezers come on simultaneously. Running wattage would be under 1000 and so a cheaply built 3000 watt inverter might be just what I need :-).

RE: This might be helpful for single ladies

I also do not believe that 99% of people are fine. I was married twice, both to men who would charm your socks off it you met them, and they were both horribly abusive behind closed doors. Maybe I just know too much about how people really can be. It's made me smarter, not more afraid. There will always be folks who believe in their safety, but no place is truly safe, no matter where you are. I'm so sorry you were targeted by those guys. And this is an example of what I was saying about experiences that women have, that men do not necessarily understand. I bet your husbands were perfectly safe guys to be around, for men.

RE: The sound of wings -- no longer just for us boondockers

I am at my s&b (thankfully made it home just in time), in a small city. The daily sounds here remind me a lot of snow. The muffling, and the fact that nobody is driving.

RE: This might be helpful for single ladies

I think men often don't understand what women experience in our daily lives, and how these experiences affect our sense of safety. Women protect men from this knowledge. We don't tell our husbands, friends, fathers, brothers what happens to us.

RE: Snowbirds In Limbo As Coronavirus Upends Travel Plans

In case anyone hasn't seen it (I just saw it), Escapees has a good page of advise, including links to open campgrounds: https://www.escapees.com/coronavirus/ My heart goes out to people who are on the road or full-timers now.

RE: Chromebook questions

Oh yes, the printer thing is a hassle! Mine can only connect to a printer via wifi, and my (old) printer doesn't do wifi. What I'm doing for now is putting the files I want to print on my SD card, and then sticking the SD card in my old laptop, which can talk to the printer (but, ironically, can't do wifi!).

RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

folks who think we might only have 12 years left anyway I don't even know what this means. It must be some dog whistle my ears are not tuned to hear. In other news, and in a typical extreme flip-flop, our fearless leader is now tweeting that we need to immediately manufacture a gazillion ventilators.

RE: Chromebook questions

I've been using a Chromebook as my only computer for several years. You don't have to be connected to the internet. Most of them have tiny hard drives, like 32gb. Get a 128gb SD card for $20, stick it in, and it is your hard drive. If you need the space you can get more than one. No need to mess with a usb external drive.

RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

Denial and anger are the first stages of grief. We are all grieving the loss of the world we knew. Remember, COVID is contagious for up to 14 days before a person has any symptoms at all. Stay home and away from the people who aren't being careful, even if they look perfectly healthy.

RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

The highways are open. Any statements to the contrary here are incorrect. Lots of folks are making their way home at this very moment. Did I miss something? I haven't seen anybody talking about highways being closed.

RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

Our RV is our home, but we are slowly heading north to our upstate NY family cottage where we'll hunker down for awhile until things settle down. We're currently near Savannah, GA and are not concerned at all about passing through the seven states we'll traverse on our way to NY from Florida. Since we'll be calling the cottage "home" for this purpose, if asked, we'll just say we can't obey a stay home order until we get home. This is why so many people are going to die unnecessarily in the US. We've been raised all our lives to think that our country is the exception to everything, and that we as individuals are exceptions to every rule.

RE: Can a modified sine wave inverter damage rlectronics

I have personally killed two Windows laptops with an MSW inverter. I ran one of the laptops off the inverter for several days or weeks before the laptop died. I had a backup laptop, different model from the same company, and it used to the same charger. I plugged the charger into Shore power, and charged my backup laptop with it. This killed the backup laptop. So the MSW inverter damaged the charger in some way that caused it to kill the second laptop. My MSW inverter has a USB Jack that is active even when the inverter is switched off. I've used that to charge my phone a few times with no problem. Of course I don't know if doing it multiple times over time would be problematic.

RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

OP, I don't know about Florida, but where I am things have been changing dramatically every single day. In your shoes I would not assume that I would be able to get gas for the RV along the way, or propane, or canned veggies to stock the boat with. Certainly you are not going to be able to get any toilet paper ;). What if you get a flat tire? Or something more serious happens to the RV on the road? what if there's no shop open within 300 miles? I think you should do what the CDC says, and stay put.

RE: The danger of self-isolating from COVID-19 on public lands

Why does everyone think that 100% of the people will get deathly ill from Corona virus? Fact is to may have or had it and not even know about it. That is how little it will affect most people! Yes you need to be aware of things, but at the same time why act like he world is going to end! It's a personal responsibility issue. If you're over 70, there's a very high chance that you will get pneumonia from covid 19. But you probably won't die from the pneumonia, if you can get to the ICU within a few hours and if that ICU has a ventilator that is available to use on you. You may have permanent health consequences from the use of the ventilator. You may be permanently disabled, but you will be alive. But the only way there's going to be a ventilator available for you is if everyone except you stays home and does their social distancing. You count on everyone else to sacrifice themselves, so that you can go camping. That's not really very personally responsible, is it? We need to have the strength and integrity to stand up for ourselves and our community, here. We need to do what is right, even if it is not fun.

RE: The danger of self-isolating from COVID-19 on public lands

What are you going to eat? What if you both get too sick to drive? We normally have enough for a couple weeks eats and could stock up enough for a month if needed. Might not be the best culinary selection towards the end but no fear of starving. The whole point would be not to get sick. If we are out isolated, there is no source to catch the virus. It's the two-week incubation period that screws up this plan. You may have been exposed a few days ago. Today, you are contagious, but now and next week, and the week after, you still feel great. Perfectly healthy. Meanwhile, you have infected your whole family and the people at the grocery store. The people in Moab would prefer that you don't come there and infect them, when you stop for gas.

RE: The danger of self-isolating from COVID-19 on public lands

Wouldn’t the idea be to take a setup in which you are self contained and not running in and out of places like you are on vacation? What are you going to eat? What if you both get too sick to drive?
