RE: FL questions

You can have it all at Ft De Soto County Park. You’ll have to see if they have room. Dave

RE: Delaware Family Campground

We always used our own tubes but we entered/exited using public access points. Your best bet is to call the campground. Don’t forget to ask them about a good place to exit. It may be worth renting tubes if they have a drop off/pickup service. Dave

RE: New post on bike carriers

Looks like it would work, the only information I did not see is whether there is an anti-sway wedge on the receiver shaft. On my Yakima swing away there is a wedge that expands the shaft when securing the rack in the receiver. This prevents the motion caused by the rack shaft being able to move around in the receiver. Maybe not so important mounted on a pickup. Dave

RE: Is Martha’s vineyard worth the cost & effort? Nantucket?

We are year-round Nantucket residents and it is a wonderful place, which is why after many years of being part-timers, we drifted into full-time 6 years ago and sold our other home. We choose our beach based on the wind direction and, with over half the island locked in Open Space Public Access, we have miles of dog walking areas. We have little to do with the shops and restaurants, the rents they have to pay make the prices they charge nuts. All of that said, there are no campgrounds and even though residents pay much less for car transport, our Sprinter is $500 round-trip because when we travel it’s for over 30 days. To truly “get” Nantucket you need to have a car and drive the Island. Four wheel drive that can cross 20” deep “puddles” is best :b. Regarding The Vineyard, when we were liveaboard boaters 10 years ago Martha’s Vineyard was always a couple day stopover. Again you need a car to really see it but I prefer Nantucket:w. Dave

RE: Ev charging in camps expectation of availability, cost

Seems like a much better business opportunity to install a diesel pump at the campground as I am almost always in need of a fill-up when I arrive. Dsve

RE: Ev charging in camps expectation of availability, cost

I guess I’m missing something. Why would a campground feel obligated ton install an EV charging station? I’ve seen very few with gas pumps. Dave

RE: New Border Regulations

....if anyone here from Canada is RVing and needs to get back by airline, you better do it quickly. The Canadian Feds just announced this morning that all flights in/out of "sun destinations" (this includes Mexico, the US the Caribbean, all of Latin America) are halted (read: cancelled) from now (today) till the last day of April.... I couldn’t find anything mentioning canceling flights to the US. Dave

RE: Receiver Bike Racks

Just don't do what my BIL did... forget they are up there and drive into the garage. It was not pretty. :S :B Dave

RE: Receiver Bike Racks

I just today installed my rack as we started packing to head south and can’t imagine it failing. In fact both my hitch and the Yakima feel overbuilt - which I find comforting. Of course a 5 bike rack is handling a lot of weight extended out from the hitch greatly multiplying the stress on the receiver and hitch. Actually I didn’t realize anyone manufactured a 5 bike hitch rack. Other than a frame attached platform I can’t picture anything that would handle that load. Dave.

RE: Vaccinations

Now I feel stupid. We leave next week for two months on the Gulf of Mexico beach. We’ll get vaccinated in April when we get home and don’t have to stand in line. Dave

RE: Office 2016 - Outlook??

Have you taken a look at the .csv contents? Maybe Thunderbird put in some blank leading columns and Outlook decided not to do the import. You should be able to view the .csv using a text editor like Notepad and the contents should make sense to you when you see them. Dave

RE: Comparing 3 Class Bs

I'm still trying to find the RVIA definition of each class. One RV manufacturer I found swore a B was an unmodified van chassis and cab and then another, I think Thor, swore it was a van chassis only with optionally a modified cab but no bunk over. As I mentioned, I couldn't find the much quoted RVIA standard. I must be missing it. Dave

RE: Can't Print from MS Word, Excel etc.

Subscription works in a three step process.. OP never mentioned using a subscription version of Office. As I said, my corporate version displays a subtle banner regarding license expiration. I get it every year because for some reason the VPN I use can’t reach the license server. Dave

RE: Can't Print from MS Word, Excel etc.

Is your MS Office subscription expired?This is what I was thinking too, but I would have hoped the Geek Squad would have picked up on this. When my work MS Office license expires I just get a skinny banner at the top of whichever application I am using, so maybe they missed it. Dave

RE: Anyone rent out their camper?

This is such a weird topic to bicker over.Am I the only one who noticed that when posters quote other quotes quoting yet other quotes, that it is an indication the whole thread is spiraling down into a childish abyss? Too many people Dave

RE: Installing a safe?

When I noticed this thread had gone to 5 pages I knew there was no way anybody was still discussing installing a safe! :b Dave

RE: Quarantine for Florida trip?

Well, if your population is “so old they will die anyway” how come the 65+ crowd gets the vaccine before front line workers? :B. We’re a little concerned about when we head down in Feb for 2 months, but the only place we’ll interact is the grocery store so we will just be extra careful. Dave
