RE: Traveling in Oregon

I second the idea that use in campgrounds hasn't changed since legalization. Although when visiting a college town, I noticed that I smelled pot smoke on the street about as often as I smelled cigarette smoke or saw someone drinking beer. It may be technically illegal to smoke in public, but I don't think anyone cares. Thank you! The town in CO where my co-worker went and smelled it strongly downtown was Colorado Springs. A college town. Another good point on legal or illegal - some don't care.

RE: The "Goodbye Room"

One of our Yorkies, most of his life, would not go out the front door at home. Out the back door, inside the fence, was his yard. But if I moved the camper out front to work on it, he would not let us go out the front without him. When the time came, we where camping in a local state park. The vet came to the park, and Luke's camper was his good-by room. Oh my goodness! How peaceful it must've been for your little Yorkie.

RE: Traveling in Oregon

Watch out in USFS campgrounds..Use your head and do it inside. The gov't is still 50 years behind the times. I asked in order to be aware and avoid it, not to do it!

RE: Traveling in Oregon

Upon further thought, I think that the case may be that potheads aren't necessarily a problem, but if you are in a bad area anyway, those kind of people are probably smoking pot and doing other drugs as well. Maybe this is the kind of bad area that the OP was referring to...? Thank you. Not necessarily bad area, because we would not stay in a place that is obviously bad, but bad people. Just because it's not legal to do does not mean that they won't do it. I think we'll be fine.

RE: The "Goodbye Room"

Try not to feel sadness when you see things that remind you of Jimmy. Thank you - this might sound crazy but I believe their spirits continue to hang around us, so things that remind me of dogs I've loved, seem reassuring.... My Vet offers to have a pawprint made for Jimmy; plus his cremains will join a few other dogs on my bedroom dresser. A funny story: Augie is a half-brother to my daughter Lisa's Aussiedoodle. When we picked up Augie, the breeder said that Lisa had told her that "if I (Lisa) die - I want to come back as one of my Mom's dogs" :-) I'm glad I'm amongst dog lovers - anyone else would think I'm just batty.... I agree with you on their spirits hanging around. One of my doggies in particular made her presence known for quite awhile. I've also noticed that when we adopt a new dog after looking for sometime, the new dog has certain characteristics of the one we just lost. Pretty sure I'm not imagining things because hubby tells me the same.

RE: Traveling in Oregon

it is against the law to consume in public in both Oregon, and Washington. I think your biggest worry would be someone asking you for some of your Doritos. What is it you are concerned about? Most people that indulge in these States are over 65. Surprise! It’s not like it’s Woodstock and everyone is standing around smoking pot singing kubaya and chanting If you want to worry about something, worry about impact wrenches, pooping, barking dogs, screaming kids, and not being able to find a place to park. As I indicated in my post, a co-worker was in CO and in a downtown area, the second hand smoke was heavy. That's what I want to avoid. The majority of responses here confirmed that we don't have to worry. I’m pretty sure your co- worker was exaggerating. It is illegal to consume in public in any State where it is legal, so think that was a made up story. Campfires create 50x the stink and smoke Not this co-worker.

RE: Traveling in Oregon

It's now legal in Calif, too, and we have not had any problems. We have, however, heard some loud drunk folks playing music. (I know they were drunk because we saw a lot of empties in the morning.) I think marijuana tends to make the party people a little quieter than alcohol does, but I am just speculating -- I don't know from personal experience! Renee, if you want a quiet campground, my advice is to avoid holiday weekends, and avoid areas in easy driving distance from big cities. Thank you. We'll be visiting some quiet campgrounds - Skull Hollow for one - but that one is popular with the rock climbers.

RE: Traveling in Oregon

Thank you for your feedback! I didn't think there would be considering that we would be camping in various state parks. I appreciate the serious feedback, including the not so serious one - "Dave's not here".

RE: Traveling in Oregon

No problems in CO. What does 'awful' mean? Heavy smoke and a lot of open use.

RE: The "Goodbye Room"

Thanks for the kind words, everyone - we've all had to do this at some point, I suspect. I'm also not sure how long it will take me to get out of "blind dog" mode (pushing chairs back in place, making sure there's nothing in a walking path, etc). The good news is that Ben (6 yrs old) apparently understood the empty collar meant that Jimmy wasn't coming home; and last night offered a "play bow" and good romp with the puppy who he had been regarding as a leper until that point....LOL! That's good news about Ben! A 6 year old can teach a puppy how to respect.

RE: The "Goodbye Room"

Awww, I'm so, so sorry. Yes, we too have been there so many times because of our love for dogs as well. We have two now and will probably have more. Blessings for Jimmy and now that you have little Augie to take care, or take care of you. Lots of love to you.

Traveling in Oregon

This seems like the best place to post my question. With the new law of marijuana being legal on Oregon. Have you had any issues with encountering users while camping in Oregon? We're planning a trip and we don't think it will be an issue, but a co-worker went to Colorado Springs shortly after it was legalized and he said a section of town was awful to walk through.

RE: Eternabond vs Dicor

Still wondering so will ask my question a little different. gbopp: You covered all roof seams & edges w/eternabond & several years later no problem. Did you have a problem or leak before or was this done for preventive maintenance? jplante4: You did eternabond on both seams. Did you have a leak or do this for preventive maintenance? Halmfamily: You put eternabond on all roof seams four years ago. Were the seams leaking or do this for preventive maintenance? BarneyS: You put eternabond on every roof penetration 10 years ago. Leak or preventive maintenance? ReneeG: You did seams & skylight with eternabond. Leak or preventive maintenance? We had a leak at the skylight. BUT - we applied Eternabond at the seams on the front and back cap - Maintenance and no problem to date. My rig is 10 years old and I have never had a leak. I clean it and treat it a couple times a year. I'm just trying to decide if I should put eternabond on the seams etc. That's why I wonder if you all had a leak prior to installing the Eternabond…...

RE: Eternabond vs Dicor

" Even with the prep, a thin line of Dicor is recommended." Can you please "show me" where Eternabond states this??? Eternabond doesn't state it, but our RV tech does. I thought it was a little over the top, but after we applied Eternabond around our skylight and an edge came up, I can see that he was right. Poor prep and not enough rub/roll. So why even use Eternabond? Just float a good layer of Dicor on the area. The idea of using Eternabond is to eliminate maintenance. I'm agreeing with jplante4, why don't you question him? What's wrong with a double seal anyway.

RE: Eternabond vs Dicor

I did Eternabond on both seams and ran a thin line of Dicor down the edge of the edge of the tape. I'm a belt and suspenders kinda guy. I also put pink stuff in the water system and blow that out with air. https://i.imgur.com/oydDZxFl.jpg That's what we did. Even with the prep, a thin line of Dicor is recommended.

RE: Must cross Yosemite NP to Convict Lake?

To the OP - I don't know how old you are, but if you have a Senior National Park Pass - that would get you through the park at no extra fee.

RE: New Buddy: "Augie"

Congratulations on your new addition, Augie. Reminded me of our pure bread Rottweiler we got over 25 years ago. Lady Augustine Von Behr. Augie for short. She was the best dog and a registered therapy dog. A gentle giant she was.
