RE: Flying J / Pilot to install megachargers for med/heavy trks

We own a hybrid that gets 42-mpg and completely love it! It's quiet, economical and a pleasure to drive. Trying to determine where and how everything we own or consume is made, and under what conditions, is beyond my ability. Add on top of that the never ending lies and attempts to manipulate the population, not based on facts, but to accomplish ones own quest for power and money, regardless of reality or the impact on others. Again, that's a lot to sift through! I'm just trying to make it through each work day and put food on the table!

RE: Closer to a head on then you ever want to be...

Desert Captain: Happy to hear you came through this unscathed. Sadly, many don't on a daily basis. My wife and I had a "way too close for comfort" moment a few weeks ago on a local freeway. We were driving in the #3 lane, of a 5 lane stretch of freeway, when someone came off the on-ramp from behind. He shot across all five lanes and nearly clipped the rear drivers side of our car. Their vehicle was moving so fast, and came so close to clipping us (and I mean extremely close), I yelled out to my wife to hang on in some sort of colorful language. I would estimate their speed at well over 100-mph, as they quickly pulled away like we were parked. I was so irritated, I nearly took off after them (out of character, for me!) In the blink of an eye, our lives could have been significantly altered had that car clipped us. It is no different than someone shooting bullets over our heads. Very risky! The behavior of today's drivers is the worst I can recall in all the years on the road. Driving speeds are way too high, enforcement way too low and aggressive tendencies far too common. Between distracted driving, excessive speeds and people driving at night without turning on their headlights, it's amazing we get anywhere in one piece! Be safe, pay attention and say a prayer or two!

RE: Multiple Buyers. Who gets the RV?

Thanks everyone for all the advice. It was very helpful. So the RV is not sold at this point. The buyer from an hour away came to see it and drove it Friday evening. Indicated he had to get with his wife. We've never heard back from him. The potential buyer from 4 hrs away showed with his wife Saturday afternoon. The wife wanted one with a door in the middle. They currently have a 5th wheel. Our rig is an Allegro Bus diesel pusher. Don't recall ever seeing a DP with a door in the middle. Maybe they need to look at a gas powered rig .........Anyway, they decided not to purchase. Both buyers were just blowing smoke. The couple coming from 4 hours away probably looked at three other rigs on the way to your place. The placement of the door was not the true objection, there was something else. The guy without his wife was just a time waster. Unless the seller makes a promise, there is no reason for the buyers to be upset if the rig sold before their arrival. If they are, then the seller has the right to be upset if they don't buy after he held off other potential buyers for those four hours. Private party sellers are not running a business and probably have many other things to do than wait around for no shows and tire kickers. Of course, it's all easy to say without being in the OP's shoes. It would be interesting to know what any one of us would have done if in his situation.
