RE: Had our catalytic converter stolen

Good thing I don’t have a wandering eye. Her last career involved wearing combat boots and a rifle. I’ll leave it there. :). If you are, we would have read already about you already in the headline being hit by Exocet missile launched using her Tesla tracking apps.:E

RE: Had our catalytic converter stolen

Hard to hide otherwise. My wife always knows when I’m in the lineup at Wendy’s getting a frosty. Really sucks. :). Wow, that pinpoint level of accuracy??? And I used to resent my iPhone as "husband tracking device".

RE: Had our catalytic converter stolen

All electric cars will cure this problem but the slime will find something else to steal. What do you think the VALUE of Electric Car Battery banks are????? Thousands of dollars. Doug But you have to steal the whole car first. And thieves know they have tracker that they are unable to disable.

RE: One Great Big EV Thread

And BEV has proven time and again to have hurdled their most challenging technological issues. Once, declared as not viable on a pure electric basis.

RE: One Great Big EV Thread

Whoa! A lot of posts got zapped between my waking up and hitting this 'ol laptop. What gives?

RE: One Great Big EV Thread

:). Way to much work. Wife is fixated on a little guy max. Easy to get on and off the ferries and small enough to fit in all the old provincial park sites. We are going to look at another one next month. It’ll be a little change from the 40 foot pusher. :). For me, anything above 25 its not little, lol. Even if a cinch for the Cybertruck.

RE: One Great Big EV Thread

Tesla Y towinng Camp365 So my problem with Cybertruck is not the range limitations when towing. I just need to replace my trailer and get a Cam365..:B

RE: Inflatable Kayaks

We have 2 of them, one 2 man sea eagle and one single Intek. As others stated they are good for what they are. Decent quality and pretty tough material. If you aren't a serious Kayaker and just want to get out on the water, they are fine. The obvious advantage to inflatable kayaks and Rv'ing is storing and transporting them. You have to be pretty creative to bring your standard stiff kayak in an RV. Inflatables are more stable than a rigid kayak so getting in and out of them is easier. They don't track as well but it's not horrible. I plan on picking up a propeller drill attachment. It's cheating but hey, I am no Olympic Kayaker. Got a battery run propeller on my Coleman/Sevylor two-man inflatable kayak and people will kid me as "cheater." It's convenient as @way2roll described. Downside, it's sensitive to high winds and bad luck if it's head or side-wind to where you are going. And most convenient when I bought a foldable big tired wagon to haul it, the paddles and the battery. I have to buy stadium seat for it too and the seat won't hold up unless you want to lie down flat.:B

RE: Want to replace incandescent bulbs with brighter LED

You might not want the brightest. At some point, it is annoying.

RE: One Great Big EV Thread

Electric has a big lead on hydrogen because there is already a distribution network in place. Small (tiny) home generation is possible for electric. Natural gas may be more viable than hydrogen--but it is definitely a polluting fuel. However, many homes do have it--so there is a distribution system available. We can also do in-home refueling for natural gas. We just need to increase the fire department budget. I wonder what it'll do on home insurance premium..

RE: gas shortages along Interstates

Well. It was a successful heist for the ransomers. I thought they only took on around 4 million but apparently it was close to five million. Wonder when they’ll do it again? What I actually wonder is the retaliation. Someone in the know might have slipped that there is already a tit-for-tat cyber war going on. One, that somehow get into the news was the Iran incident -- and everybody wondered whether it's the US or Israael, equally capable, did it.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

My twin grandson, both 12, duh, got their Pfizer vaccine last Saturday. Mom said it's an easier appointment than their regular medical check ups.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

No more predictions due to the impending bankwuptcy. They moved into where's the semis and the Cybertruck when they realized that particular bus has left. And they are about to spring the SNL gig now that the weed issue has lost its spark.

RE: gas shortages along Interstates

Even when there is no gas shortage, I carry in containers enough for half a tank. And when my gauge says I'm half full, I gas up (although in my trip planning, this goes simultaneous with my lunch stops). My next campground is no more than a full day's drive away -- 300miles max and be there by 3 pm rule.

RE: First Time

Stop (often) and smell the flowers, see the sights/views/attractions.

RE: One Great Big EV Thread

With the nearest hydrogen fuel filling station 137 miles away? And at price 5 times gas (equivalent energy basis)?

RE: One Great Big EV Thread

We have a window for solar panel market vs China. Anticipate the boycott as China is reported as using forced labor in manufacturing their solar panels. But in China, forced and voluntary employment is almost indistiguisable. Reasons why I don't buy China company stocks even if listed locally -- no matter how promising the returns. Plus to me, their books and accounting practices is always a suspect.

RE: CA 1 from Monterey (Marina) to Half Moon Bay

We do use Gas Buddy and Google Earth. We last filled up in Bakersfield and will be due after our stay in Marina. The cheapest gas in I-5 is in Pilot at Lost Hills. And best coffee..

RE: CA 1 from Monterey (Marina) to Half Moon Bay

I'll never forget how devastated our kids were when we made the drive north and they learned that the "Carmel Valley" they had been seeing signs to for hours actually contained zero "caramel". Not every road trip has a happy ending. :B Multiple :B:B:B
