RE: Flashlights

Nothing fancy, but we like this one. Nice size and bright, USB rechargeable. Anker Bolder on Amazon I use headlamps most of the time, but this one is handy when a headlamp isn’t ideal. Has Harbor Freight stopped the FREE stuff from their sale ads? I get their sale ads from the paper and have not seen any free stuff things since the 1st of the year. I really did like those free lights!

Flashlights. A tubular device for the purpose of storing dead batteries.

RE: Backing that trailer into a tight campsite..

Let's just pretend something for a moment. If you can "see" this in your mind, from ground level and from an above view, indulge me a moment here. What if your tow vehicle had a hitch in front? Let's just pretend you have a bumper pull travel trailer instead of a 5th wheel. If you had a hitch on the front of your vehicle and could hook up the trailer, can you visualize in your mind exactly what you'd have to do to easily and successfully place your trailer exactly where you wanted it? It's perfectly fine to stop and reposition a bit, that's just fine to do. If you can "think and see" this through your "minds eye" it may help in the normal situation. Best wishes to you, good luck.

RE: Backing that trailer into a tight campsite..

In my opinion, and I'll assure you this is quite accurate, 90% of backing up successfully, and safely, is positioning your rig in a good position before you even start to back up. When you are coming up to the spot where you are to back in, take a good look at it. Get out and on your feet if you feel the need. Take a good look. Then drive your rig into a position where it will be the easiest it can be to back in. The less wiggle wiggle turn turn you have to do to back up is the best positioning. Feel no shame, none at all, no embarrassment, just stop, get out and look, take your time. If you are starting to back up and your rig is a all katty-wampus and discombobulated and it's going to be an ordeal with lots of cranking the steering wheel...STOP and reconsider. You may be a LOT better off to drive off and come back in and reposition your rig better.

RE: Oklahoma Is OK

What is the rivalry with OK and NB? I saw a bumper sticker on a car once that said something like: If NB was hell and I owned OK, I would rent out OK and live in hell. Or something like that. Anybody down that way must know what I am referring to.\ Say what? The abbreviation NB stands for New Brunswick. Canada. Nebraska's abbreviation is NE.

RE: Prescriptions while on the road?

I have normal insurance and pharmacy filled meds just like most people. I asked my doctor for another script, 90 day supply, he did, and I took it to Costco and told them “no insurance, cash price please” and they filled them for just 2 or 3 dollars more than my copay is normally. That gave me a 3 month cushion at an extremely good cost. I did use the Good RX app for the best price too. You definitely should use Good RX

RE: Oklahoma Is OK

The SE part of Oklahoma is gorgeous, the Hugo and Broken Bow and Talimena Drive area is awesome. North Texas wants Oklahoma water, but that's another whole story.

Apparently Spacex and those satellites will ruin stargazing and astronomy.

RE: Many paged forum?

I've been here for 16 years. This place has evolved and changed and it's certainly not as active as it was when I first came here.

RE: Snowbirds In Limbo As Coronavirus Upends Travel Plans

I've followed one couple on YouTube who is on an entirely different continent. They're in an old truck and a pretty decrepit looking truck camper. Leave Everything and Wander are from Italy, they've been on a multi-year travel from Alaska to the bottom of South America. They are in Argentina (I think is the correct country) and can't fly home and they keep having troubles where they are, nobody wants them and they can't find out where to go just to be SAFE. It's sad to see what they're going through. I also followed a couple of British Citizens who have small RV's, most were in Spain or Portugal and were told to head back to England ASAP or risk being locked out of England. It's sad. I'm glad I'm where I need to be. Good luck to everyone in this mess we're thrown into.

RE: Made back into the US without a passport!

I don't know but I'm afraid that will be changing any day now. You might be able to just use your drivers license but the CBP officer may have to do more and thus waste your time, etc. Good luck to all of you all who have to cross borders for the next few months.

RE: BORN FREE's Kim Olson still in the RV business?

Was Kim male or female? A GOOGLE search of that name and town shows a deceased female, age 60 at death. Have you tried any google search? Also, many used parts can be sourced from Colaw Salvage, owned by Colaw RV in Carthage Missouri. You can get their website and phone number from any internet search, including Google. Colaw RV Salvage is enormous! Huge inventory. Call them. Good luck to you.
