RE: Las Vegas

Why rent a car (especially at today's prices) when taxis in LV are so cheap. Just rent a car when you are exploring for the day outside of LV.

RE: Unrecognized photo

Down home, I'm a little confused. Grandma left you pictures of tintypes in a book or did she leave you "actual" tintypes, not just pictures of them. I have some of the actual tin types inherited from my grandparents and great grandparents. Just before the Civil War soldiers spent a hefty amount of money (as compared to the meager amounts of money they made before 1861) to have these tintypes made of them to give to their sweethearts, wives, and mothers just before they left for war. This would be the way the soldiers in their uniforms would be remembered if they never returned from war. Not too long into the Civil War, along comes a fellow by the name of Matthew Brady who and his crew would cover the countryside taking photos of entire families on their farms using lens plates. You have probably seen in the old movies of a man putting a dark cloth over his head while he was looking into the camera standing on a tripod and had some gun powder which would explode on a long tray held by the photographer at the time everyone was ready for the picture to be taken. Anyway, those pre-Civil War tintypes and Matthew Brady pictures have become valuable and sentimental to descendants of those families. Many have been destroyed because these pictures were not stored correctly in a dry and dark location. These pictures could be a part of your family's heritage.

RE: Waited on Canada long enough

On CNN, the latest news is that US has a large UK variant breakout in Michigan up near the Canada/US border; Michigan has asked Biden administration to send more vaccine to Michigan over and above the state's allotment.. Of course, other states do not think that is fair. But I see this is necessary because of the geography of these states to the Canadian border. It is no matter whether you are essential or nonessential traffic crossing the border; essential traffic can carry this virus just as well as non-essential traffic, to US or Canada. I'm for an agreement between US and Canada to open up the border at strategic locations, put 24-hour vaccination stations at those locations, bring in the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine, give it to both non-essential and essential traffic if they cannot prove they have already had the vaccinations, and have the Canadian/US citizens handle their own two-week isolation after the shot either on the Canadian or US side of the border. At those locations, there would be a vaccination road and a road for those who have completed their isolation. This may be "pie in the sky," but if it could be pulled off, it would help lower the infection rate of US states and Canadian provinces along the border; it also would make the border a little more porous without carrying infection back and forth across the border.

RE: Stimulus Late in Arriving

When doing my tax return, my accountant also asked if we had received our checks; he indicated that the Feds were saving a little money in some cases by combining the checks with income tax refunds (which we are getting this year).

RE: Deleting and Closing A Thread

The deleted posts from vaccers and anti-vaccers were good point/counterpoint comments (like a high school debate). But it was not until the very last commenter who started calling posters inappropriate names that took the this subject off the rails and hence was deleted.
charlestonsouthern 03/27/21 11:52pm RVing in Mexico and South America

Mexicowanderer -- I have to ask this question. What will Mexico do with the vaccines from China and Russia (without appropriate trials before approval for use)? You said they would be sent to Mexico City; for what? Did Mexico have to pay Pesos for these vaccines? Other than the reasons defined by BCSnob as to no EAU applied for, as yet, in the US for the AstraZeneca, hoarding this vaccine on the shelf was not reasonable when our neighboring countries had approved it. Subsequent to AstraZeneca, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine was developed, a EAU applied for with FDA and granted. However, J & J did not have a large enough production platform to produce the number of vaccines needed to reach the Biden administration's goal of approximately 300 million doses by May 15; in steps another US company, Merck. Merck offers to clear the way on its gigantic platform to produce J & J's new one-shot vaccine. Ain't capitalism great! Ha! (Of course, there is the Defense Production Act passed just prior to the Korean War hanging over Merck's head, but it was good they volunteered instead.). Hence, Indirectly, I think it was Merck who made it possible for AstraZeneca to be moved out of US reserves and into Canadian and Mexican arms.

RE: Canadians: 65+ are getting vaccines now

BobsYourUncle -- Is that $400 US? Or did you convert to Canadian (for the purpose of this forum)? How many Canadians in his party took the Covid test? Where did your brother take the test; most would go to the labs of a local public county Health Department and Clinic, not a private medical business or hospital like Doctors Care.

According to CNN tonight, the US is giving 2.5 percent of its Astra Zeneca vaccine reserves to Mexico and 1.5 percent of reserves of the same vaccine to Canada. Both Mexico and Canada have approved this vaccine for use in their respective countries; US FDA is still in clinical trials for approval of this vaccine. It's good that the vaccine is being used and not just sitting there.

RE: Why Can't I Reserve this?

Quantum82 -- Have you ever visited Anastasia State Park? The good news first: It has a beautiful beach. The bad news second: The best HIGH sites are for the size of popup campers; that is why most pop up camper clubs and rallies are held at this park. The first and only time we stayed there, we were assigned a larger and a very low site for our 27-foot RV off of a graded dirt road; when we backed in, it was like we were backing into a gold-fish bowl; the graded dirt road was high above the site. We knew that in the last few days there had been a lot of rain and flooding in the St. Augustine area, but we thought it was over until we checked the weather report after we had parked the RV. Yes, another deluge was coming that same night, and we were sitting in a goldfish bowl. We talked the weather problem over with other campers with similar sites along the dirt road, they also decided that they did not want to be caught in a mud pit if another storm came. But if you have a small pop up camper, you will be in hog heaven with the high (but small) sandy lots. However, those lots will not fit medium to large RVs.

RE: Tennessee state parks

dhull -- X2. Generally, the campground host will do it. My experience with this has been in North Georgia campgrounds, both state and Corps of Engineers. I've only used private campgrounds in Tenn.

P.S. The Defense Production Act was passed by Congress in 1950 in anticipation of the Korean War, not World War II.
charlestonsouthern 02/06/21 12:27pm Around the Campfire

Monaramblee, in taking a look at the figures today, there recently seems to be a high correlation between vaccinations given and reduction in cases of Coviid in the US; it may just be a blip in data, but I believe with the 6 percent of the qualified population inoculated in the US, this has something to do with it. During World War II, the Defense Production Act passed Congress; this law is the one which the current administration will use to convert existing manufacturing platforms to rapidly produce various vaccines; now I read up on the manufacturing platforms in Canada for rapidly making medical equipment, personal protective equipment (PPEs), and other related products; those platforms are already in existence. It would not take much to dissolve the US/Canada border in order to have highly skilled employees from each country cross back and forth between the two countries to create what is called in economics as "economies of scale." While US is expanding with more and more vaccines instead of producing PPEs, medical equipment and such, Canada could produce those things as Canada already has those manufacturing platforms. Since Canada only needs to inoculate approximately 33 million people and the US needs to inoculate approximately 300 million people, this plan can happen with the help of medical military personnel from both countries for inoculations. We must remember that most civilian nurses and doctors are tied to the hospitals using the equipment which Canada is producing. This precludes each country from replicating the same manufacturing platforms from scratch which takes a lot time and money. We really need to put Biden's and Trudeau's heads together pronto.

BCSnob, my husband and I get our second Pfizer shots this coming Monday. Do you know how long we should wait after the second shot in order to be considered protected from Covid-19? There seems to be different wait times with respect to the specific vaccine taken.

RE: It's a wonderful day: COVID vaccinations

Guy Roan, I spoke with my cousin this morning who is a Florida citizen in the Orlando area and informed him of your 2,000 mile round trip trek back to Mitchell County, NC for your shots. He said to tell you thank you so much and there has to be a special place in heaven for you and your family. I agree; you are a true southern gentleman!

RE: FLKeys suggestions

kfp673, are you and your family doing Fort Wilderness camping for Disney activities? DH and I have reservations there in March, but are rethinking the trip because we're not sure the parks will have parades and such.

RE: Vaccinations

dturm, X2. Perfect sense.

RE: Vaccinations

Deb and Ed M, you would have better luck calling your DEHEC or Health Dept. in your true state of residence, you know, the residence where you obtained your voter's registration card, your driver's license, the state or federal income tax documents with your residence address on it along with your social security numbers. With all that true information, someone would eventually come on line and ask you to go to a particular provider's website and have you fill out your state's form and you would push the continue button; the provider would then give you a date and time to show up for your appointment; between now and time of your appointments in your state of residence, your provider would communicate with you on your smart phone or through your e-mail address. You would have plenty of time to travel via plane or vehicle to meet your appointments in your state of residence and return to warm weather in Florida. We have received our first shot; while at our Medical University, we got the appointment for our second shot and now will fly back from Arizona to SC to meet our second appointment and fly back to Arizona. You see, just because I'm on vacation, I don't want to make my problem Arizona's problem; that problem belongs to me and my state of residence, SC, the state where I vote for people who run my state. It is easy to determine what is your true state of residence; based on that true definition, the numbers for distribution of vaccine to a state are determined.

RE: Charleston SC

Ferndaleflyer, that little area for that KOA is called "Ladson" on US Highway 78. Not too far off of an I-26 interchange. Historical Charleston peninsula is about 18 miles away from that KOA.
