RE: Getting credit card with no residential address

There's nothing random about the effect of the Patriot Act on life in these United States. It just seems to have hit some F/T RVers harder than others. Perhaps full timers should fund a lobbying firm to get their concerns across:). They have one. It is called Escapees and they have been working with financial institutions on behalf of their membership regarding the misinterpretation of the Patriot Act for the past 2 years or so. Which is why a lot of us don't seem to have the problems that others are having. Barb

RE: When will you start the flight south?

We're already on the way. Just got into California today (100° at Red Bluff this afternoon). Will exit the state about October 5th and be in Mesa hopefully that same day. Have concert tickets for David Sanborn at the MIM on October 9th. Yes, it will take us a month to get through California - - lots of wineries to stop & sample. Smoke in southern Oregon was Horrible this morning - - all of the mountains are hidden in the smoke. Barb

RE: How Long?

We've been fulltiming for 9 years, but this past year we changed a little in that we have a winter RV that is stationary in a park where we spend 6 months and use the motorhome for the other six months to travel. Since we like AZ in the winter, made sense to us. But as we age, we find that we are slowing down and I am sure that within a very few years, it will just be the AZ place for us. Barb

RE: Getting credit card with no residential address

Please tell me with a credit card, you will pay it off each month. :) (Sorry off topic) Not only off topic, but I would say that it is none of your business what she does with the card. Since we are adults here, one should expected to be treated as an adult, not lectured to by the "do as I say" squad. :R Barb

RE: New snow birds looking for recommendations

What is it you like to do? Have you been to Arizona? RGV? Personally, I don't like the RGV even though we are technically Texans. Love the Phoenix area, but then we like access to lots of museums, good shopping/restaurants, lots of concerts all winter long, parks with lots of activities & amenities, SPRING TRAINING!, did I mention lots of shopping & restaurants? We do seeing nature during the summer. Barb

Welcome to the newest adventure of your life - hope you enjoy it as much as we have for the last nine years. Barb

RE: Another Arizona in the Winter Query

You do know that the lows you are seeing will occur at about 6:00 am. Evenings will be wonderful,I find that as soon as the sun sets, it is definitely time to go inside (at least in the early winter). Not in the Phoenix area in the winter. We often sit outside for dinner (grill is there) and enjoy our company and some wine until 9 or 10 in the evening. Sometimes one might need a sweater, but that's about it. Yes, there will be a few times (like anywhere else in the country) when a cold front might dip south, but in general the evenings are very comfortable. Barb

RE: Fulltime Domicile Question

The SD office is new, so there aren't a lot of people using it - - that's why the recommendation to call Livingston and talk to them about it. Given that you like the organization (we've been using them for almost 10 years) why are you so adamant about not having a Texas domicile? Barb

RE: Another Arizona in the Winter Query

I also feel safer in palm springs. last year I had to pick my wife up at phoenix airport. I found a spot to park fairly close by where she could take a cab. I had a knife pulled on me. Fortunately another pedestrian came to my rescue and he thought better of facing 2 of us. Could happen in any big city. But you are describing somewhere off of the airport premisses in an industrial area, correct? Why wouldn't you use the cell phone lot in the airport (which is free) and have her just call you when she located her exit door from the baggage claim area? Then you just drive up and pick her up. So easy to do. We have been in the Phoenix area for the past 6 years and never feel afraid. Barb

RE: Another Arizona in the Winter Query

I much prefer Palm Springs, not as dry and uninteresting, IMO. You have to have a lot of money to really 'do' Palm Springs. And I know for a fact that there are more museums, more arts centers, more restaurants, more shopping, more of everything in the Valley of the Sun, all within easy driving. Plus - SPRING TRAINING during the month of March. What more could someone want? :B Barb

RE: Another Arizona in the Winter Query

Not this winter. Phoenix area would be a better choice, more to do than Palm Springs, a little cheaper and probably slightly better weather during the coming winter. Barb

RE: New Federal Restrictions on Pain Medicine Prescriptions

Have the Doctors office FedEx the script each month. Wouldn't this resolve the issue? Most pharmacies won't fill Schedule II drugs from out-of-state physicians.

RE: New Federal Restrictions on Pain Medicine Prescriptions

I don't believe they can send to out-of-state pharmacies, but they can send to a mail order pharmacy like Express Scripts, which can then fill and send to your 'home' address. If using a mail forwarder, then it just comes in your next mail delivery to you. Or have the home address be a relative's for this purpose and they forward your mail on to you. Barb

RE: Another Arizona in the Winter Query

Again - the OP really isn't asking about the low temperatures which occur just before dawn, he is asking about evening temperatures. And most snow bird places have evening temperatures (at least in the Phoenix area) that will be in the low 60s to low 50s with them falling lower as the night progresses. Looking at the weather data doesn't give you evening temperatures, just hughes and lows, which usually occur about in the mid afternoon for the high and just before sunrise for the low. Barb

RE: Another Arizona in the Winter Query

You do know that the lows you are seeing will occur at about 6:00 am. Evenings will be wonderful, though it is an El Nino year and there will be more rain all across the south, but especially in drought stricken southern California and Arizona. Barb

RE: Christmas Boat Parades???

Our park has "Christmas Golf Cart" parades. You really should specify where you will be 'on the road'. Barb

RE: Park model rental info

The park, in Arizona, where we purchased our park model (we use it for the winter, then get in the motorhome again and go traveling) always has a list of park models for rent for winter months in the office. So just call some parks and ask. Barb

RE: Passport America or Escapees Mail Service?

Have used Escapees for over 9 years. Highly recommend them. Barb

RE: BCBS of Texas to drop individual PPO plans in 2016

…. A couple years ago a friend was in the hospital curiosity prompted my DH to go the accounting office to ask how much a particular outpatient procedure would cost? They asked if he had insurance? He asked for both prices $800 for cash and $2000 for insurance. If we got rid of the middleman healthcare costs might go down? I have met a couple of people on the road that have paid their own medical bills by making arrangements directly with the hospital or doctor's office instead of an insurance company. … Please note that while they may bill the insurance company $2000 for your example above, they probably settle with them at $1000 or less. The rest is written off as a lost so that they always remain non-profit. The difference between what you might pay with cash versus what the insurance company pays also goes to covering those people with no insurance who get treated at the hospital. We still have millions of people who are the working poor - they make to much for Medicaid and make to little for ACA and their states didn't go with the expanded Medicaid. Barb

RE: Internet?

We've had Verizon for 9 years - have a MiFi now in addition to smart phone. Use about 15G per month for 1 laptop, 1 tablet, 1 smartphone (plus one old flip-flop). Mostly email, web browsing, a few U-tubes, plus we have a blog? Barb
