RE: Seeking expert opinion: thinning vs prescribed burns

Right after a thinning, younger age class trees are not very noticeable. That is exactly what happened after frequent low intensity ground fires before fire suppression by man. Fore

RE: Modern Food?

Be relentlessly selective. Reward great food and great service. Otherwise eat at home.

RE: Toyo tires?

I ran the Toyos for around 60,000 miles a set on a 1 ton Ford. I had the open country tread and later went to the highway tread. Good tires and long lasting. Now I have the Coopers made in America.

RE: Perils of RVing

ghoos, I used to travel as an environmental consultant, sometimes to cities. Sometimes I had cheap rental cars like a Ford Focus. I can remember coming out of a large government building to a giant parking lot full of Ford Focus cars and trying to remember what color it was.

RE: What do you want in a campground?

Many people seem to be able to put up with a lot of inconvenience as long as they have power, water and a bath house. I just want it to be beautiful .

RE: Talk me out of my new project.

Vans are all the rage. They are tiny inside. But if you like truck campers they are worth considering. They seem very expensive for what you get. I can find a great TT for 10k and park it when I don't need it.

RE: Nevada 447

Great road. Good advice about watching your speed around Pyramid Lake. Driving the back roads in Nevada at night is always risky due to livestock and wildlife on the road. If you drive at night, go under the speed limit, use your high beams and have a spotter help you find the critters on the road. Black Angus cattle are the worst and they are very popular.

RE: Seeking expert opinion: thinning vs prescribed burns

Huntindog, Forest management is a long term strategy. It is always a long term endeavor. We management forests for our children. Sometimes you have to look closely to see the regen and younger age class trees left after thinning and selection cuts. In many stands you will not see saplings and seedlings, trees say under 20 feet tall. But there will often be plenty of pole sized trees in the understory. It takes awhile to look carefully and see what is happening.

RE: Suspension upgrade disappointment.

Vehicles are complicated. There are a lot of parts that wear out over time. It is that one last bushing or control arm that needs to be replaced that makes all of the difference. Do not give up. YOu are almost there.

RE: Toyota Highlander and 26' Trailer

Sounds like a person with a lot of ego doing the talking. The towing capacity is 5,000 pounds but for me it is 6,000 pounds.

RE: Perils of RVing

Nope, not a problem. My problem is I live in a beautiful quiet place and look for the same when I travel.

RE: What do you want in a campground?

I like to be in a beautiful place. A level place to park is helpful. Minimal amount of people, otherwise I go boondocking. I rarely go to public campgrounds in summer except for special events like a music festival.

RE: Must cross Yosemite NP to Convict Lake?

Tioga usually closes around early November. This year might be different.

RE: Must cross Yosemite NP to Convict Lake?

Crossing the Sierras is not that easy, especially late in the fall. I don't like 120 much over Tioga because it is built to NPS standards. It is full of curves and very narrow. I agree about 4 and 108 having similar challenges. Route 88 is my favorite for towing a trailer. Route 50 is pretty good and so is I-80 but those are pretty far north for you. People look at maps all the time underestimate the difficult of certain routes. The Sierra is a giant fault block thrown to the west. The east side is steep and windy now matter where you cross it.

RE: A foot of snow in Montana right now

I used to live Wyoming at 7,200 feet. The aspens turned in August. It could snow anytime. The northern Rockies are not for everyone.

RE: Alaska RV trip loop routes/planning resources

Take the State Ferry from Bellingham. It is a whole different trip than a cruise ship. You can rent a state room. There are good restaurants. You get to stop in places like Wrangell and Petersburg. The ship is full of Alaskans. No formal night, no Broadway shows, no crowds from Los Angeles. I have taken the ferry twice and a crusie ship once.

RE: Quit RVing

egh33, Congratulations on knowing when to quit. My Dad had a 42 foot boat and we finally convinced him to sell it when he was around your age. He got lax with maintenance and was not courteous to others on the water like he had been all his life. This month I am going to celebrate his 95th birthday.

Snow in the yard last night in Nevada.

RE: GM Strike

If it weren't for unions, auto workers would still be making $10 an hour and buying at the company store.
