RE: Attitudes

Makes one wonder the true definition of Free Speech sometimes. Most people have no idea what speech is protected as free by the Constitution. The government can not deny most speech. Private entities can and do. From a Google search: Freedom of speech is the political right to communicate one's opinions and ideas using one's body and property to anyone who is willing to receive them. The term freedom of expression is sometimes used synonymously, but includes any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used. The right to freedom of speech is not absolute in any country and is commonly subject to limitations based on the speech implications of the harm principle including libel, slander, obscenity and pornography, sedition, hate speech, classified information, copyright violation, trade secrets, non-disclosure agreements. The term "offence principle" is also used to expand the range of free speech limitations to prohibit forms of expression where they are considered offensive to society, special interest groups or individuals. For example, freedom of speech is limited in many jurisdictions to widely differing degrees by religious legal systems, religious offense or incitement to ethnic or racial hatred laws. Freedom of Speech The right, guaranteed by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, to express beliefs and ideas without unwarranted government restriction. Democracies have long grappled with the issue of the limits, if any, to place on the expression of ideas and beliefs. The dilemma dates back at least to ancient Greece, when the Athenians, who cherished individual freedom, nevertheless prosecuted Socrates for his teachings, claiming that he had corrupted young people and insulted the gods. The Framers of the Constitution guaranteed freedom of speech and expression to the citizens of the United States with the First Amendment, which reads, in part, "Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech." Almost since the adoption of the Bill of Rights, however, the judiciary has struggled to define speech and expression and the extent to which freedom of speech should be protected. Some, like Justice hugo l. black, have believed that freedom of speech is absolute. But most jurists, along with most U.S. citizens, agree with Justice oliver wendell holmes jr., who felt that the Constitution allows some restrictions on speech under certain circumstances. To illustrate this point, Holmes wrote, "The most stringent protection of free speech would not protect a man in falsely shouting fire in a theater and causing a panic" (schenck v. united states, 249 U.S. 47, 39 S. Ct. 247, 63 L. Ed. 470 ). During the two centuries since the adoption of the First Amendment, the U.S. Supreme Court has held that some types of speech or expression may be regulated. At the same time, the Court has granted protection to some areas of expression that the Framers clearly had not contemplated. Notice, Free Speech is only free from government restriction. The people who own an online forum have the right to censor/restrict any way they see fit. However, you also have the right to start your own forum and express any opinion you want. Hope this helps to understand "Freedom of Speech" ;)

RE: Solar Panels: Mono vs Poly

Recommend mono because poly panels of equal wattage are larger and take up more room on your very limited available RV space. We are currently in the process of adding solar to our bus. We are putting 2,000 watts of mono panels on our bus top. We have been working with Renogy, a company located in Chino, CA. You can go to their website to compare panels. Renogy Solar

RE: Is Top of the World Hwy paved

Hubby wanted me to add: We met a truck pulling a flatbed trailer with a D9 Cat with blade going the other way. We pulled over to the soft shoulder looking down on about a 1,000 ft shear drop. We were in our small rig, it's a skinny Winnie only about 7.5' wide and we still almost touched mirrors as the truck went by. Hubby said we didn't need seatbelts, with the way our butts took a suction on the seats. :D

RE: Is Top of the World Hwy paved

We hung around Tok several days last summer waiting for the rain to stop so we could cross into the Yukon on this highway. The RV's incoming from Top of the World were incredibly dirty. Not just road dirt, but a thick layer of greasy looking grime. They had some horror stories too! We were backing away from making the trip when we met a couple from the RollCall 2013 group who assured us that we would have no problem. Thank you Aprilwhine! We had a great trip and would not have missed it for the world. lizzie And we loved meeting you! You are not exaggerating about the grime! Here's some pictures of our rig during/immediately after our trip across Top of the World: We protected our dinghy with tape http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v706/AprilWhine/Travel/2013%20Alaska/2013-07-09091441_zps6178173a.jpg In line for the free ferry across the Yukon River at Dawson City http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v706/AprilWhine/Travel/2013%20Alaska/2013-07-09093553_zps4e0626f9.jpg Top of the World highway sign, about mid way http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v706/AprilWhine/Travel/2013%20Alaska/2013-07-09125436_zps3d838930.jpg Chicken AK, the end http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v706/AprilWhine/Travel/2013%20Alaska/2013-07-09164559_zps3bca4c18.jpg And YES we got DIRTY! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v706/AprilWhine/Travel/2013%20Alaska/2013-07-09155102_zps4de4d524.jpg

RE: cops stopping you

Answer #1 : Don't look like a vagrant Answer #2 : If you park overnight, make sure you look like a traveler, not a squatter.

RE: Sprinter Towing

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v706/AprilWhine/Travel/2013%20Alaska/2013-07-09164559_zps3bca4c18.jpg This is a picture of our Sprinter based RV with the dinghy attached in Chicken AK. To get there, we had driven this rig over Top of the World Highway. ;) This is the rig we took to Alaska last summer. We could outrun anything but the biggest engine DPs in the mountains and actually embarrassed some of the gassers. All this and we averaged a bit over 14mpg for the 10,400 mile trip. The rig currently has around 160,000 miles and we have had no problems. The dinghy shown is a Mini Clubman, weighing about 3,500 in the picture because we use it for additional storage. The gas cans on the safari rack contained 25 gallons of diesel, for emergencies.

RE: 2008 Itasca Latitude

This model is a diesel and is the Latitude. Does this model compare to the Destination? Yes, the Itasca Latitude is the equivalent of the Winnebago Destination. I had an 08 Destination but traded it for my bus.

RE: 2008 Itasca Latitude

Depends on the chassis. If it's on the Freightliner, good but if on the Workhorse UFO, then bad.

RE: Wrong name on card - four weeks for replacement?

Good Morning! Thank you for getting back to us so quickly. I see that cards were requested for you yesterday. That request will be sent over to our card vendor tomorrow for processing. I have asked them to verify that your husband's name is correct before they reissue the cards. The cards should mail out on Thursday. I have asked them to mail your cards first class so you should receive them in 5-7 business after the date of mail. If for some reason you do not receive them please feel free to contact me directly @ xxxxx@campingworld.com. Have a great day & thank you for being a valued member! Posted this reply from GS for anyone who may be interested. edited to remove email address of GS employee

Wrong name on card - four weeks for replacement?

I recently renewed our GS Club membership, we are now paid through 2017. Received the new cards in the mail today, and imagine my surprise when my husband is listed with the wrong last name! I called the 800 number to get new, correct cards. The girl I spoke with at first didn't see why I wanted replacement cards since the card I have is good through 2017. When I insisted I wanted cards with my husband's correct name, she said it will be four weeks for replacements. This is unsat. GS Club is for RVers, I don't know where I'll be in four weeks. I see no reason for this to take so long in today's computer age. I would like to have a replacement card in hand within two weeks.

RE: True or False?

In a way, your "ignore the year, look at the mileage" is backwards for diesel RVs. Diesel engines do not wear the same as gas ones. I have a Detroit 60 with ~230,000 miles and it purrs. And mileage indicates it didn't just sit, that someone used it and probably repaired house items as they developed problems. I've had the bus in my sig since 2010, we've replaced the tires, batteries and two water pumps. Side note, the water pumps didn't die, we killed them. ;)

RE: GPS, Atlas, Mapquest and More....

2milesup ---since ya'll are the only ones I know who has the answers, I have to ask what seems Ike rediculous questions I guess: If I get off the main highways (where speed limits are 65-70) and ask for secondary roads, arent they the ones that take me through towns and one lane roads?? You're right, I don't Want no back-woods scary movie roadways LMBO... So if I wand secondary roadways and not highways, what am I looking for?? Thanks everyone, Newbienac I wish I had more answers, Beth. Selecting between fastest and shortest routes pretty much takes up the depth of my abilities with GPS. If there's a way to eliminate interstate highways from the route a GPS chooses, I'd like to find out how to do it too. In settings under avoidance, you can specify things to avoid. One is freeways, another is toll routes, etc

RE: New site to connect with others

Moving around does not give you an opportunity to be meet and really get to know or become friends. I am looking right now at rigs, we say hi talk a little but really don't connect. I wonder if Open Roads forum would mind if we used their name to start a group? Remember the old saying: it is easier to get forgiveness than permission. ;) I would say go for it.
