RE: Windshield covers

Magne shades are very pricy and just the same Hassel as the ones you snap on the out side windshield. Check on what Shade Pro offers at a third of price. no hassel getting it on and off. sure, the first few times are a learning curve but it's a short LC. and it comes off in seconds. to each their own.

RE: Windshield covers

Looking for advise on classA windshield covers we did our reserch on this a few years back and settled on MagneShade and we're very pleased with the choice. we had used the reflective foil on the inside of the windshield for a few seasons and while that worked well in keeping interior temps down we grew tired of perpetual night inside. the MagneShade allows light in but keeps the heat down especially when we're parked facing south or west. no ladders needed, no snaps to install or break.

RE: Highway speeds - Keep your distance!

Good advice but this is a situation that technology will solve over the next 10-20yrs as adaptive cruise becomes standard. adaptive cruise: otherwise known as “i don’t have to pay attention...the car will save me”. until it doesn’t.

RE: What would YOU do???

Simple, I would treat them as I would want to treated.:). Meaning: I would call them, explain, and ask how they wanted to handle it. this! ^^^^^

RE: Any Apple gurus?

.... The big problem now is that I can't do anything other than sign in because I can't remember the EXACT answers to my security questions... one strategy to combat this problem (BTDT) is to use the same answer for all security questions. there is no context between the question and answer so it matters not what one uses as an answer.

RE: Satalite tv

IMO “ CG with good WiFi” is an oxymoron. there’s good wifi and then there’s CG wifi. most CG wifi that i have experienced is fine for e-mail and surfing but not for video streaming.

RE: Jeep Grand Cherokee, experiences, thoughts, opinions?

Jeep and all it's cousins seem to have electrical problems as they age, especially if you live in a snowy area that use road salt. This might take 5-10 years, but it will happen. we’re in chicago where it has been known to snow and none of our jeeps have had “electrical problems”. 2003 Wrangler, 2010 Liberty, ‘46 Willys CJ2A

RE: rent a car

My turn to rant. So we make a reservation for a rental car at Enterprise for pick up on a friday at 1 pm. when we arrive they tell us they have zero cars. i think how can that be, we have a reservation. they inform us people call to extend there rentals at the last moment which leaves them with no cars. Does this sound like a good business model? after calling other branches hour and half later they find 1 for us. https://youtu.be/4T2GmGSNvaM

RE: Texas Drivers License Hassle

I moved to Texas from Arizona not long ago and have been trying for months to get my TX drivers license. The holdup is the local social security administration. I had applied for a replacement social security card a couple of months ago (SS card is necessary for TX DL), and they're so backed up, I guess because of Covid, they haven't even looked at my paperwork yet. The problem is, my AZ DL will expire at the end of August. That means I'll be driving without a license and whenever I apply again I'll need to take a road test, a hassle I don't look forward to. The way things are right now, I don't really expect the SSA to send my SS card by that time. At least my vehicle is licensed and insured in TX. All I need is the DL. I wonder how many other people are having a similar problem in TX. I'm thinking that perhaps the SSA can send me a letter stating that my request is in process, or something like that, in case I get stopped by police for some reason. I sometimes wonder if I should have stayed in AZ. I think the DMV there isn't as difficult to work with than here in TX. EDIT: Just called the local SSA today, and they still haven't gotten to my request. However, I requested that a letter be mailed to me stating that my request is in process, and that's being done. I don't know if law enforcement will accept that, but there's nothing else I can do. The official at the TX DMV gave me the impression there's nothing they can do either, so I would need to cease driving and I guess, take public transportation. I don't think so! :M one option MAY be to provide a copy,of the first page of your most recent federal tax return (with alll of the numerical data blacked out). your SS# is on that page. worth a try.

RE: Long Range Two Way Radio

Cobra radios have different power output depending on channel. How much it changes range, I do not know! assuming everything else is equal less power = shorter range.

RE: Long Range Two Way Radio

ANY 2-way radio-to-radio service will have degraded range due to terrain...hills, trees, etc. what is your expectation for range? 1-mi, 5-mi? what sort of terrain?
