RE: settle an arguement

This forum is pretty good at losing sight of the forest for the trees. The short answer is one is not easier than the other for your question. There are differences and those will be personal in nature. The only question mark I see in the original post is asking how to determine weight. Once the question was answered correctly several times others moved on to the various other points the OP brought up. I think everyone was trying to be helpful and nice.:) We got to see the forest AND the trees - that's what camping is all about!

RE: Fire in Grand County CO - 10.31.20 update

The firefighters are probably having a tough time w the conditions. Nothing like waking up to a foot of new snow and then having to lace up the frozen White's boots for a nice 16 hour day in the cold.

RE: How to tow travel trailer with 2 adults, 3 kids, and 2 dogs

We do the same on a regular basis minus one dog. We have a crew cab Ram with a fiberglass cap. Our Lab rides in her crate in the back. If it's really hot then we will bring her to the back floor, but otherwise she does not seem to mind riding in the back at all! Other than that, Van, Large SUV, or Motorhome I think are your only options This is great thank you! We looked at the GMC 2500HD today and the backseat is huge! I think we are going to do the same as you have suggested. The separate area provided by the bed and shell allows one to isolate noisy, rattling cargo, and smelly stuff like fuel and wet dogs away from the humans.

RE: Propane generator..

Having had a propane whole house generator and used it through many, many multiple day outages (up to 12 days) I'd bite the bullet and get a diesel generator if I needed one. The ease of refueling, and longevity of the motor are 2 big pluses in a diesel generator. The lack of common spare parts espeically in widespread outages is a major downfall to a pp gen. Find out what the local "generator rate" for pp is if this will be your sole pp appliance. If you rent your tank you will lack the ability to shop for propane suppliers.

RE: Poachng Season

Dang, send them to Missouri, we need some here to keep the deer population in check. Just kidding, but something needs to be done, with no real natural predators they breed like rats. Makes a person very nervous driving through treed areas at dusk. X2. With our apex predators gone like bears and wolves the only major predators are us out here on the southern plains. Oh sure dogs/song dogs/bobcats can take a very young deer but with this bucks only hunting seasons, were over run with out of control deer populations...especially does in this part of my state. With out of control deer populations and now a feral hog problem we could use more poaching on these pests around here. I see nothing wrong with taking/poaching pests in a local area. Bucks only is a poor management strategy unless the objective is to produce as many small,scrawny deer as the land will carry, and no 3 1/2+ year old bucks to hunt.

RE: Thinking about downsizing to a B

You've been looking for 11 months and found one. That indicates the seller can ask what they want for it and probably get close to it at some point. From reading the thread the dry bath is severely reducing the number of choices, perhaps consider a wet bath in a B or a truck camper w dry bath.

RE: The trashing of our public lands.

While it's disgusting no matter whose trash it is, it's a tiny problem compared to environmental disaster that is occurring or about to occur in the US. The cause is the same though - it's all about me, and how much money can I extract for the "shareholders." Pebble Mine - Bristol Bay Drilling in ANWAR Opening 9 million acres of wilderness to roads and logging in the Tongass NF If you have ever been to any industrial site in AK, like the oil fields in Prudhoe Bay, or mines outside of Fairbanks, you would not feel this way. They are very conscientious of the environment and the animals that call those places home. They take incredible care to not harm wildlife and keep everything clean. If a polar bear goes anywhere near a drill site, the shut it down regardless of the cost until the bear has it's babies and leaves the area. Alaska is the last place in the world you have to worry about environmental damage. I worked in the Tongass NF laying out timber sales for the USFS, there is PLENTY of ground in the Tongass to log w/out touching the wilderness. It's just easier and more profitable to do there. ANWAR has no development at all. I'd like to see it some day as it is now. We HAVE oil and gas in spades - why go there? Even Junior is against Pebble Mine.....which is plagued with corruption and is a 20 year program (lol) that is never going to end. It will also be a beachhead for further extraction in the interior. Locals don't like it and fisherman don't like it either. Why should a Canadian company come pillage AK anyway?

RE: The trashing of our public lands.

We have been "users" of public lands for the last 50 years. Our national parks and public lands are being trashed... tp, diapers, tampons, human waste, etc. While the story is relevant, it is decades behind the curve. It seems that the new users of public lands are just pigs with no back country ethics. They wouldn't know what real wilderness was if it bit them in the butt. They have been there for a long time there is just more of them now.

RE: Soundbar, speakers, or large portable for trailer?

I'm not good w sonos at all but I can make it work. The beam is compatible with their other speakers, which their earlier soundbars did not and it's much cheaper than the older ones. I presume Sonos products lack flexibility so you are locked into the brand if you want subs, and other speakers to expand your system. However they are good products, well worth the money, but not for the fussiest audiophile.

RE: Craters of the Moon, ID

Anglers Rest, Picabo, ID. Took a drive down there yesterday to Silver Creek and drove the Nature Conservancy roads. We saw a TON of hawks, deer, and some Sandhill Cranes. The ducks were all hiding from the gale force winds, though. There is propane in Bellevue ID not to far north of Picabo, but there is probably some in Picabo as well.

RE: Moving on up... to the mountains!

Good luck in your new home! It looks spectacular.

RE: Craters of the Moon, ID

There is a new place in Picabo ID my friends like. You'll need reservations as it fills nightly. Arco is east of COM, Picabo is west so prob depends on your approach. Picabo is in the vicinity of Silver Creek a world class trout stream and an amazing place to see birds and wildlife.

RE: Steamed Clams, Pacific NW - Washington

So you go when it's hard to harvest?

RE: Steamed Clams, Pacific NW - Washington

The absolutely best steamed clams are at the Front Street Grill in Coupeville, WA on Penn Cove, Whidbey Island, WA. Their Coconut Green Curry Mussels from Penn Cove are even better. We were there for lunch when Tom Douglas (probably the best restauranteur in the NW) brought a tour group there for lunch. I raise my own Pacific oysters (6,500), Manilla clams (12,000), Mediterranean mussels (15,000) and geoducks (35) on my beach. I go there when the tides are not favorable. Go there. Can you explain the last sentence, pls?

RE: Truck Campers and Boating?

I back this rig down a ramp all the time with no issues. If you can't see your trailer, the easiest fix is to lie a 10' long pole across the boat with flags on each end. You will be able to see that. The pole could be in two pieces if necessary. Zulu I think it's exact same boat as yours, except I had to buy a Merc 4s.
