RE: Nikola and GM team up to make 900 HP Electric Supertruck.

Great website. Good thing they can crank up the nat gas output when they need to. 50% is nat gas right now.

RE: Rivian 1/2 ton high temp, grade test. Good read/video

I just read that article earlier this morning and was shocked they did not say how much battery power the climbs used. Without that information it is all fluff. Guess they didn't want to say.

RE: Utah, Highway 12 Advice

Rilrti, When you are in Escalante if you have time take a drive to Boulder and then down Burr Trail Road to the end to the back entrance to Capitol Reef. There is a parking area there with great views. The road has some great scenery and will also give you a chance to see one of prettiest stretches of 12 without the trailer.

RE: Utah, Highway 12 Advice

Hope you enkoyed the drive. The dreaded hogback is only 1/2 mile long and done before you know it.

RE: Understanding GVWR

I agree that 750-800 is realistic.

RE: NY State Parks - interesting info

I would expect bathrooms to be closed and be replaced by Porta Pottys. You can't shower and shave with a mask on.

RE: Road Conditions Utah rt 44

I towed 44 to 191. Some grades, no hair pin turns. Nice scenery. 191 before Vernal has a bunch of switchbacks, but I had no issues at 54 ft overall length. Love that whole area.

RE: RV lot OWNERSHIP - deeded lot ownership, live year round

Just make sure you get to read and understand all the rules, fees about the place. In reality, you would be buying property in a community managed by an HOA. That isn't necessarily a bad thing. Just understand fully what you would be getting into. Double ditto. Some places have property taxes too. All real estate has property taxes. If there is no property tax, you don't actually own the lot.

RE: senior pass

At the risk of opening a can of worms and even mentioning AARP, I feel that I must. I was recently told that AARP is going to put their foot forward to stop this action from taking place. Be it good or bad, I just had to mention it. Don't shoot the messenger. The article states they are going to lobby against it. I will be 62 in January (and immediately purchasing my lifetime pass) and personally could care less one way or the other which way this goes. Even at full price the NP camgrounds are one of the best deals going.

RE: senior pass

Off the rails is right. The increase to $80 was done under the prior administration. The current discussion is about restricting the camping discount at certain parks / times of years. Not restricting seniors from visiting a park when they choose.

RE: No more full size cars from GM

There are far more cars than trucks/SUV's in my garage at work. Someone still wants them. People who buy new don't want them. Drive by any dealer and see what's on the lot. When I take my Honda for service I see lot's of cars. Same with my Toyota. Take my Ford truck in and not many cars. Ford started this and GM jumped on board. Time will tell if it is mistake or not.

RE: Tesla Cybertruck

I believe it is just a marketing stunt and will never be built. Gotta give Elon credit for creating a buzz, and then banking then some quick cash to boot. Waiting for the slam, Sam. Did it ever happen where Musk promised a Tesla model and ended up never built? There is a difference between skepticism and mental case delusional. You certainly are predictable. You sound like a little boy who got his toy taken away in the sandbox. I haven't seen a Semi on the road yet. Yeah, what are the chances? I have not seen a Rolls Royce Sweptails either and there are already 12 of them out there. But fret not, tweet Elon to send one to pass by your house. Zero to none since there no Tesla semi's traversing the country. At least there is chance of spotting that elusiive Rolls.

But curious why you think this model will be different than the model S, the model X, the model 3 and the model Y which is now in pre-production. Tesla’s track record is pretty solid at this point. Not always on time but pretty solid. Just curious. Gut feeling. As you know I have no dog in this fight and like EV technology, including Tesla's contribution which is propelling the industry as a whole forwards.

RE: 2020 ACA ("Obamacare") Update for Full Timers

Income of prior years doesn't figure in at all. You will need income (like taxable 401K / IRA distributions) to qualify for a subsidy. I don't think SS counts as income under ACA rules. Better do some more research on ACA subsidies if you are planning on one. You need enough taxable income to rise above 140% of the poverty level to qualify. Otherwise your only option is Medicaid which brings in a whole other set of rules. What's included as income Thanks, I see that all SS payments are included in the income calculation.
