RE: Sleepless nights

Simply Sleep (generic) from Wally world (cheap). Adult dosage is 2, 25mg pills. This is too much for me. Causes restless leg syndrome and groggy feeling in the morning and makes you not want to wake up. One pill or 1/2 a pill works for me. Take one hour before going to bed. When your head hits the pillow, you will be sleeping before you realize it. I used to do; turn-a-rounds when I was working. That meant, off at mid-night and report for duty by 0730 hours the next morning. That meant you need to get to sleep when you got home or you would not be able to productively complete a 16 hour tour of duty the next day. SS worked for me and was not addictive. Use as needed. Quit when not required. Lakeside

RE: I think they’re doing it wrong

It appears there is no pin in the second level back section of this nightmare. The 1st section off the truck receiver is bending down from the weight. IMHO this is an accident waiting to happen! Lakeside

RE: $600K Of Marijuana Seized in MH Near Joliet, IL

I have my heart, arteries, lungs, kidneys and blood twice a year. What do you do with them for the rest of the year? ;-) 'That' was kinda funny, butt, we'in purty moocha no what'ta he'in talkin 'bout..... Words can be misspelled, lack most vowels, and we can still understand what folks are trying to say. I knew what Cloud dancer was saying. Simple enough to understand, unless, maybe, partaking of the stuff that was seized in this original post....... Lakeside

RE: $600K Of Marijuana Seized in MH Near Joliet, IL

Sad world where so many people have to find some sort of artificial sense of well being. Hence the huge drug problems running rampant and getting worse. And then the people like the ones mentioned by the OP that want to make a ton of money off those seeking a fake high. Why? just why? The kind of "drug" I like is the one found in the great outdoors. I call it "fresh air". I like the high I get from being parked by a lake with the TT, walking outside on a clear dark night looking at the immensity of the stars. The gentle sound of the soft wind wafting through the trees. The sound of a nearby stream, with the water tumbling over the rocks. The scent of campfire smoke drifting past. It's a great feeling, a natural high. The enjoyment of life Life is good, it really is, and I don't need fake happiness. Hope you get well soon. Your post was refreshing and so true. Lakeside Try some of a product called CHILL it is CBD and THC. It works wonders on aches and pain and don't worry you won't get high. There are plenty of folk using this for surgerys and all kinds of muscular pain. As for nature THC just expands not dampens the outdoors..... just saying. Each to their own. 'Pursuit of Happiness', I won't infringe on yours, please do the same back at me. Including not crossing the center line while your enjoying nature under the effects of THC. Lakeside

Life is good, life is great and I consider it a blessing to be part of it. Life can be what you make it. People can choose to look only at the bad, then load up on mind altering drugs to escape, or they can look at all that's good, and smile and choose happiness. Attitude and outlook..... I'm kinda crippled up right now, right arm in a sling, after Oct 30 surgery to fix a very badly damaged shoulder from a work injury. Can't sleep without severe discomfort, can't function normally, can't work, can't really do much, but I greet every day with a smile, thankful for the awesome life I have been so richly blessed with. I took a few pain killers for the first week to soften the intense pain, but quickly tossed them and chose to move forward. Life is good, it really is, and I don't need fake happiness. Hope you get well soon. Your post was refreshing and so true. Lakeside

RE: Lukeville crossing

Anyone know of any problems with crossing at lukeville? No Problems Sundays are very busy getting back to USA. Long lines of returning traffic. We crossed and the children would wash our windshield for a quarter. Other children sprayed something from a plastic bottle on our front bumper. When we got to the USA the K-9 barked at our front bumper. We were ordered out of the RV, handcuffed, and escorted inside the building and questioned for over two hours as to where the 'dope' was in our RV. The RV was completely searched and in disarray and we found holes poked into our ceiling from some sort of probe. After much stress, we were released to continue our journey. Wife was so upset, she had to go to the ER. Not fun. Motto of story, don't let anyone spray anything on to your RV. Could cause you problems. We decided that we will never return to Mexico. It might be beautiful, and cheap to live there, but it is also dangerous and too much hassle to get back into the USA. Too much to see in America and Canada to return south of the border. Lakeside

RE: Homeless migration to RVs creating problems

If people want housing, they can get roommates. I could not afford California and had to have a roommate. I left that abyss a long time ago. One parent can work days and one work nights. Parents can babysit each others kids. People have no will to solve their own problems. Why keep having kids they cannot afford? Because they can sign up for the free stuff. These programs need to be gutted. But they sure manage cigarettes, alcohol, cell phones, nails and hair. Blame drugs, blame Corporate, blame student debt, blame the Man in the Moon, but not themselves for their poor decisions in life. Then expect good old U.S. taxpayers to bail them out and pay their bills. I am sick of paying for peoples bad decisions in their lives and WE suffer the consequences for it. I do not want to spend billions of our hard earned dollars for more welfare housing, that people do NOT appreciate or take care of. Generations of families live in that housing and that vicious cycle never ends. Breeding will not get them out of poverty. I am sick of paying for other people's romp in the sack, it is disgusting, and irresponsible. And WHO gave the authority to take our money to pay for this nonsense! Taxation without representation. Where there is a will there is a way. We live in a "you owe me" society with too much free stuff handed out like candy and now we have millions of foreigners who do not belong here and thousands on the way to get on the Gravy Train. That needs to be shut down immediately, no free stuff for non-citizens from anywhere. Send them home. We have our own problems, just like they do. And it is getting worse by the day. This train wreck is at full speed ahead, we all lose if this continues. Somebody had better get tough and tackle this monumental problem and stop adding to it by importing MORE foreigners and illegals here. We cannot continue to spend billions of dollars on people who have no right to be in our housing, our schools, our medical care system, our jobs, our roads. We have neglected our own, we have thrown them in the streets, and it is pitiful. I read an article on Refugee Resettlement Watch that these 60+ year old refugees are on OUR social security and getting everything handed to them for FREE while our Seniors are suffering! This has got to stop, we are bankrupt. Well said. I could not have stated it better. WORAH............ Lakeside

RE: Large dog

Please list any positive or negative issues traveling with large dogs. My wife wants a German Sheperd and I do not see anything but problems. From scratching the floor to tbe issue of what to do with one while we are away for the day. I do not think it is right to leave a large dog locked inside a trailer all day. I traveled all over the USA and Alaska with a 72# retired service K-9, of the Belgium Malinois breed and only had one issue: Uncontrolled little white poodles that want to show how tough they are and dumb handlers that think that action was funny. Otherwise there were no issues. We made memories from Maine to Florida, and from Texas to Alaska. Wonderful experience. My girl loved to swim, so every place we stayed at that had water, she was swimming. The Atlantic in Maine, the brown water bogs of Florida, the Gulf in Texas, The Pacific in Alaska and hundreds of lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams in between. I smile as I write this and end with a sorrowful ache in my heart for my partner has crossed the 'rainbow' bridge. So to the OP er, take your pet, be a responsible pet owner, and make some memories.

RE: campground to avoid

Foul mouth or not. I don't go to campgrounds to make friends with the management. Pay your fee, don't buy anything, spend the night then head out. We had a similar experience a few years ago where management was just awful. We completed our stay there (a weekend), but the initial "welcome" tainted the entire stay there. It loomed over our heads. The initial "welcome" at check-in does set the entire tone for the entire experience. It's not easy to just "get over it" or "forget it" or "just move on in the morning." For what it's worth, our "bad welcome experience" occurred at a campground not very far from where we live. We'd never been there before, but decided to try it. If the experience would have been positive, we'd probably visit it more. It is a nice campground, but we'll never go back. So yes, the initial "Welcome" at check-in IS very important and how one is treated when first arriving will make a lasting impression forever. Remember, you can NEVER undo a first time impression. Be kind to each other. Life is just too short to live it in misery.First impressions cut both ways. How a customer acts at check in is our first impression also. People wouldn't believe the things we have encountered over the years. There have been some instances where politeness and a smile would be an unacceptable response. Very good, western park owner. There is always two sides to every story. I am not sticking up for the CG host. I am merely stating, you made a good point. Thanks for sharing. Lakeside

RE: Homeless migration to RVs creating problems

What is the solution to do with the thousands of people homeless We build tent cities for people who are not our citizens and should not be here, but do not build them for our own. It is disgraceful to see our cities laying in waste. We have a real crisis on our hands and should be very concerning to us all. Well said. I tried to send you a PM complementing you on your statement, but you know how that worked out. Thanks for your well thought out input. Lakeside Thank you. I sent you a PM. Hope you got it.

RE: Homeless migration to RVs creating problems

What is the solution to do with the thousands of people homeless on the streets? Yet we keep importing millions of people here without solving our own issues that are growing rapidly. This is not sustainable. I hear a lot of complaints but no one offering suggestions to solving the problem that does not involve billions of our tax dollars! No more free stuff. It is expensive to live here, housing is costly. We need affordable housing on bus lines that will get people to work. Many are on drugs and have mental issues and just do not care. It is out of control. They are relaxing the laws and now people can do whatever they please with NO consequences and innocent people suffer for it. Rudy Guilani cleaned up New York. Now it is a disaster again. We need to stop throwing money at these problems that have zero results. We build tent cities for people who are not our citizens and should not be here, but do not build them for our own. It is disgraceful to see our cities laying in waste. We have a real crisis on our hands and should be very concerning to us all. I can see why they are using RV's for shelters, but there needs to be somewhere set up for them to go. Then that creates a whole host of other problems, water, sewage, electric, drugs, crime and trash. Well said. I tried to send you a PM complementing you on your statement, but you know how that worked out. Thanks for your well thought out input. Lakeside

RE: Campground Theft

Had a bag on the picnic table disappear one evening. The outside of the bag stated, "Fresh Maine Lobsters". I'll bet the perp had a big surprise after his taste-buds were watering for Maine lobsters, only to find the empty shells the lobsters had been wearing in the bag. Oh well, crime did not pay in this instance! Lakeside

RE: Mysteries of RV design

Have fun posting your mysteries... I’ll start - my circa 2018 truck camper has a fancy stainless steel microwave/range vent/range light unit. The range vent lid must be opened and closed by moving 2 little plastic tits from the outside, while holding the lid closed. It is about 10 foot off the ground when the camper is on the truck. My 1989 Fleetwood trailer had a vent hood that was opened and closed by a control from inside. My Palomino TC is the same. I use a broom handle to open and close the tabs whenever we use the vent fan, which is not often because we cook outside 95% of the time. Lakeside
