RE: Absolute positively the worst road ever

the park highway. AK. 130 miles of dust. I will take a little dust for the view and you must be talking about some other road than the Alaska’s most rugged terrain from Anchorage to Fairbanks. Yet the George Parks Highway need not be feared, because it is the state’s widest and best year-round road.

RE: Desert Southwest suggestions

At Flagstaff Arizona there is Lowell Observatory which I assume have a stargazing program sometime. There is also Sunset Volcano and Wupatki National Monument you can visited near Flagstaff. Canyon de Chelly National Monument is worth a visit, but may be out of your way a little bit. Second Mesa is also off the beaten path a little bit but well worth the time and effort. You will find free dry camping places near all of these sites if you do some Google searching.

RE: Planning a cross country trip - questions

No Problem. Go for it. If you make advance (6 months) reservations you can even get into NP and BLM sites. Some of the best campsites are dry camping at BLM or NFS sites.

Read Aloud Books -- follow the bouncing ball

My six and eight-year-old grandchildren will be traveling with me most of this summer. At home we often check books out of the library and read to the children. Reading to the children is not practical while driving down the road. Since I have unlimited data with my Mobley mobile hotspot, I am looking for a website that has online read along books. I have found a number of books in a YouTube format. However, I am looking for books that have “follow the bouncing ball” or other highlighting methods to mark the words as they are being read. Any information is welcome.

RE: Oregon or what to do after Glacier

The Canadian Rockies are much more spectacular than the US Rockies. I do not know how much trouble it is to cross the border with a dog since I do not have a dog. However, the view you will get at Lake Louise and surrounding area is well worth the hassle of crossing the border with a dog. It would be a shame to be within a few hundred miles of some of the most spectacular mountain views in North America and not see them because of the hassle of crossing the border with the dog. "border=0"

RE: Full Timing on our own lot - HELP! - Insurance ?

I meant to add that we leave our RV in NC and go to MA for 6 mo. then return. Thanks agesiliaus. That might be something. If you have a house in MA that is vacant more than 30 days your homeowner insurance may not cover the house.

RE: 30 FT Full Timing Camper

Moving from a 5th wheel to a TT you will need a good hitch. I suggest either a Hensley Arrow or a ProPride. There are usually some used ones on sale for less than $1,500 on eBay or check out Craglist.

RE: Very good video on Buddy Heaters

I have a large "Big Buddy" heater. For the last 10 years when I park for the winter in TN I have use it as the primary heat source. 1. I have 2 CO detectors in the TT. Neither have ever gone off. 2. I store a 30lb propane tank outside the TT and run the hose threw the outdoor shower door to the inside of the TT for the Big Buddy. 3. One minor problem even on low heat mode often the heater over heats the TT. So I need to keep turning it off and on. 4. The heater does generate moisture so I have a dehumidifier in the shower to lower the humidity. But I do not have problem with dry air in the winter time.

RE: Fulltime family of 4: 2019 year in review

It would be nice if you added your fuel cost to the total. When I tell people I fulltime on between $10,000 and $12,000 a year including food cost they think I am wrong.

RE: IRA and new SECURE Act

Cash it out over 10 years, pay the taxes, and re-invest the rest; what's the big deal, it's all free money to the kids anyways. If a $1 million IRA passes to a working upper-middle class adult child, he would have to take payouts annually, adding $100,000 of annual (taxable) income on top of his salary for a decade. If the IRA is a Roth and not taxable income, the future investment income of the $100,000 will be taxable. 1. Live in a high-income state tax, and half the annual payout could be consumed by taxes. 2. The adult child does not need the money while they are working. Better to have the money when they retire and in a lower tax bracket.

IRA and new SECURE Act

This is NOT a political posting. It is an estate planing posting. Many of the RV friends I know have a large IRA that they expect to pass on to there children in the hope that the children will be able to withdraw (stretch out) funds from the IRA over the child lifetime. The new SECURE Act which is part of the spending bill to prevent a government shutdown next week will require ALL the funds in the IRA to be withdrawn in 10 years after a person death -- not the beneficiary child's lifetime. You may want to Google SECURE Act. I think I need to die before the end of the year.

RE: Backup to restore to new computer

can I imagine each disc, then restore those images on a new computer? But the programs will not work on the new computer since the new computer has differ main chip and motherboard. On you new computer I suggest you put all programs on the "C" drive and create a different partition or different HD call it "F" for all your data. Then do routine backups. If you need to restore your C drive you will not lose your data on the F drive. Or if you move to a new computer then you can clone your F drive to a new F drive and all will work OK.

RE: Backup to restore to new computer

Assuming you are going to install a new hard drive in the same computer you need to get a good backup software. I would do a Google search to find the best backup software for your particular application. I personally like an imaging backup software. Some of these have a free 14 (?) trial periodIf Most will clone a drive to a new larger drive. If you are going to install on a DIFFERENT COMPUTER you need the original disk to install from scratch.

Firewall vs entry in Hosts file ????

What is the difference (that is better) between having an entry in the "hosts" file, or a "rule" in a firewall application when trying to block inbound traffic from a known website or company.
