RE: How many miles a day can we go?

I've gone just over 400 miles a couple of times and really don't like to do that, unless I have to. My max is more in the 350 range. After that, I really start getting irritable and tired. It's not like driving a car. You are much more focused, and while driving 60-65 is what most of us do, everyone around you are doing 75-80... so you are constantly watching, looking, reacting etc... It can be a grind... Mike

RE: Lacrosse quality?

Lacrosse quality is pretty good. As good as most, not necessarily better than any others. I had a 2016 Lacrosse 324RST. I did have a few issues with it, but mostly with standard components. A/C was replaced under warranty. Control board on the Dometic fridge went out.. also warranty. I did experience the dreaded cap fade, and that was out of the regular warranty period. Primetime paid to have my cap painted. The wall for the bathroom was warped and also rebuilt under warranty. Friend of mine is on his third PrimeTime RV and he's been very happy with all three. Mike

RE: Slide Topper Awnings Will Not Fit

I personally like the slide toppers. Never ever had any issue with them with water or debris under them. Only issue is on some of the longer ones, they will pool some water on top. Bringing slide in gets rid of the water. This is one of those items that you either see a benefit and like them, or you don't. Mike

RE: Possible CCC Upgrade

I don't think anything you do will change the stickers. So, if the mods you propose doing make it more capable in your mind, then I say just do it. Mike

RE: Buy Register A Car While Traveling?

Between yesterday when you posted and today, you could have been there, taken care of it, and returned and be drinking a beer right now. Mike

RE: Harbor Freight Predator 3500W question

I think OP has already written this thread (and the Predator) off because it doesn't satisfy 1/100%th of a requirement (12v). Silly to buy a generator, or discount a generator for a trivial issue that they all have. Mike

RE: Travel When Restrictions lifted

I tell you what.. I'll go camping where I can easily meet or exceed all social distancing norms and y'all just go ahead and stay home. That way we will both be happy. Mike

RE: Travel When Restrictions lifted

Makes perfect sense to me, and really reflects the feelings that many of us have. The virus is real... no doubt. The hoax is the changing and moving of the goal posts, inflating the number of deaths and the ridiculous implementation of nonsensical restrictions. Just a few examples. You can jog on a beach, but the trails used for jogging are closed ... You can go to Walmart with no restriction on number of personnel, but get thrown in jail if you go out in a boat with more than 4 people, even if they are all your family members (thank you Illinois Gov). Hard to believe people who make up this nonsense actually get a paycheck. Mike

RE: Travel When Restrictions lifted

Not to mention the 5000 cases in NY where the GOV mandated that assisted living homes must take COVID patients, and as a result, 5000 people died. Mike

RE: Anyone traveling yet

This discussion/argument has gone on in an untold number of threads, and neither side is going to convince the other to change. There's one side that is unwilling to venture outside of home unless absolutely necessary and don't want to open up anything until the virus is eradicated and there is a vaccine. Regardless of what we learn along the way that might enlighten people and should cause some to rethink. Then there's the group that looks at things a little more objectively, and don't apply a one size fits all solution. It's not that folks on this side don't care, or don't have any concerns, it's just that you can't freeze everything in time and hide inside until this thing goes away. It's pretty telling when over half of the deaths occur in the highest population areas, despite the direction to stay at home. 5000 deaths alone based on a decision to direct assisted living homes that they must, by law, admit COVID patients. Talk about criminal! For those of you who feel that the only way people on the other side will believe is if something happens to someone close to them, well, I view that as lashing out because we don't agree with you. It has nothing to do with whether or not we believe this virus is real, but again, there's not a one size fits all approach. No one yet has made a single convincing argument about why it's dangerous or selfish to go camping in a state park that is open, and more than ample space to exceed all social distancing requirements. The argument about contact along the way is a ridiculous one, especially when you can make it to your destination on one tank of fuel. And I am quite sure the same people who don't want to go anywhere do fuel up locally (although clearly not as much. In the end, each side is right in their mind, and each one is wrong in the others mind. Mike

TSD Fuel Program Update

Got an email this morning from TSD Logistics Good evening TSD Fuel card holders. We have some great news. TA/Petro has come back to us with some great rates. They will likely be the lowest price out of all of our vendors. We have also added Kwik Trip and Kwik Star to our discount program with 10 cents off per gallon. We are reaching out to others now to see if we can increase to some of the smaller chains. Our current discount network is TA, Petro, Loves, Road Ranger, SAAP Brothers, Ambest, Kwik Trip and Kwik Star. Just thought I'd share Mike

RE: Another sad sign of the times.

Think we need a bail-out plan to take care of the bugs. After all, bugs have feelings too. Mike

RE: Anyone traveling yet

If one leaves the city, and heads out camping, while maintaining social distancing requirements, are you helping your fellow city citizens? Seems to me answer is yes Mike

RE: Anyone traveling yet

Study shows the virus spreads more quickly in confined areas than in outdoors. Okay all you hermits.. get out and spread out! Mike

RE: Anyone traveling yet

Wonder how many of the naysayers/non-believers would be willing to take their family camping in NY, GA, CA and other high risk areas. :R Just did this past weekend Not saying Im a naysayer or non-believer... I just believe in reasonable precautions. We were better socially distanced camping than here in town. For a different perspective, see what the illustrious governor of New York recently said With everything we’ve done – closed schools, closed businesses, everybody shelter at home, all the precautions about where a mask, where gloves, etc. – you still had 600 new cases that walked in the door yesterday,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. “Where are those new cases still coming from, because we’ve done everything we have to close down? How are you still generating 600 new cases every day?” In trying to answer why patients keep being brought in and what their backgrounds are, a stunning finding jumped out. That shocking detail: Of all the places patients come from, like nursing homes and so on, most – 66% – were said to be social distancing at home. The three day survey looked at 113 hospitals, getting back more than 1,200 responses Not only does the results suggest they were not in subways, in taxis, for-hire vehicles, or otherwise on public, it finds that they left their houses not at all. Eighty four percent were at home, literally. Were they working? No. They were retired or they were unemployed,” Cuomo said. When you take away the percentages of those not working or retired you are left with just 17%, including essential workers in close contact with the public. “We were thinking maybe we were going to find a higher percentage of essential employees who were getting sick because they were going to work. That these may be nurses, doctors, transit workers. That’s not the case, and they were predominantly at home,” Cuomo said.

RE: Anyone traveling yet

Just got back from a weekend excursion to Crooked River State Park in Georgia. Georgia State Parks have been open the entire time. Have another camping trip planned for mid June, and also Gulf Shores over 4th of July. We practiced social distancing and had a great time. Mike
