RE: Ordred a Jayco X17Z

I love my 17Z. I haul it with empty tanks and fill the water tank on arrival. Most campgrounds have a water spigot somewhere and I carry a long hose. I use the dump station when I leave so I'm again hauling empty. I keep a strict watch on luggage to avoid going over the CC weight limit, which is posted inside the door. I also don't want to go over or even too close to the weight rating of the tow vehicle because weight = gas (not to mention brakes, engine wear, safety issues, etc.). So I bought a Nook to replace the library I used to carry. I don't bring cases of soft drinks or carry more than 2 gallons of drinking water at a time. I bought a new, lighter laptop. I don't use very many canned goods. I weigh the luggage before leaving town, each trip. But then, I'm nuts. Enjoy your trailer! And enjoy traveling light!

RE: Rest Stop vs. The Hills Have Eyes

I used to spend a lot more nights boondocking than I do right now. I had favorite off-road spots to sleep. A couple were probably on private property, but in spots worn flat by trucks. I was never hassled by owners, it was dark and private. This last trip I slept in 3 "rest areas." 2 of them were slightly noisy with idling trucks, but the other was dark and quiet. It just happened that that one had more RVs than semis. That was the only place I had a problem with a jerk! Now to be fair to the jerk, I'm pretty certain he just pulled off there because he knew he was drunk and needed a place to rest, but then he decided that hassling another RVer (not me - I love my big dog) and throwing up near her rig were a good idea! On this trip I also boondocked in a quiet parking lot and off the road at an exit. Quiet and no problems either place. I don't carry a gun when traveling (too many state lines!) but I sleep with the truck's panic button at hand. Hope that helps.

RE: Can you identify this car?

Oh cool, I think you're right and Dave got it. Thanks so much for your efforts!! One of my clients is an archaeologist; he was out there recently and wanted to know. He's considering surveying the site.

RE: Can you identify this car?

It's a little hard to tell from the picture, but the nose has a pronounced point. And many thanks for getting the picture to post for me!!

That didn't work. How about this? http://tinyurl.com/mt6xgy8

Can you identify this car?

This old car was used as part of a retaining wall at the Tempaiute mine near Rachel NV. You're looking at as much of it as is visible. Can any of you identify the make/model? https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10154217284340441&l=062bb99fb2 This is an FB photo but you don't need an account to look at it Thanks for your help!

RE: Remembering April 27, 2011 in Alabama

Do I ever remember! I was on the road in AL on a friend's motorcycle. Unbelievable weather and we missed the worst of it, though ALL of my AL family (3 nieces, assorted great-nephews/nieces, brother etc.) were affected. One of them found a neighbor's BBQ on her roof!
