RE: Looking at used Ford F-350 high miles

For the 03-07 model diesel trucks still on the road today, I still see by large more 6.0 PSD Super Duty's still on the road than the other two diesel brands combined. And IMO the Super Duty is the best truck platform with the best transmission. Does that mean that Ford sold more 6.0 than GM and Ram combined?

RE: College Football Playoff Rankings Out!

Been off the internet for a few days but I believe the Tide served notice that they are the one to beat. Typical first half but as usual the second half was different. They got away from their strengths on offense. Announcers said Sabin told Lane Kiffin to run the ball. Result, time consuming and wore Florida's defense down.

RE: Galveston to San Antonio

Take the I-10 route through Houston. I have done it many times. Went through west bound last Monday at 11:00 and traffic was not an issue. Don't know if there is such a thing as no rush hour. I drive through at around 50 MPH and traffic seems to flow better for me. Be aware of lane changes and move over early. Some one gets in front of you, slow down a little more and give yourself a little extra room. All of the loops are longer and I find them to take as much or more time to get through. Traffic can be just as heavy at tines, 45 south of Houston traffic can be just as heavy as taking a downtown route via I-10. The 610 loop has heavier traffic than the north side and has some very rough sections. If going to Big Bend you have to make a trip to Ft. Davis and McDonald Observatory. Stay at Ft. Bend state park. While there take the switchback to the top. From there you can get phone signals. Large sights in the valley. Has Wi-FI and cable.

RE: Fredericksburg Texas

Most parks are good to decent. I have been to most of them and prefer Lady Bird. Has wi-fi and cable and close to town and Kerrville. It's sites are probably the largest. I have stayed in Fredericksbburg RV Park. Nice but I find the sights a little tight. Go to RVParkReviews and check the reviews. Most parks get a good rating. I don't believe you would be disappointed in any of them,

RE: Bagman's Bucks vs.Michigan

The off sides call was wrong and the pass interference call was wrong because the ball was uncatchable well over the head of either player and both players have and had equal rights to catch the ball. The flag should have been picked up as there was no foul with an uncatchable ball. Read the rules! Regarding the uncatchable ball. Yes, in the rules and also in the rules in the NFL. I watch primarily SEC and that rule is NEVER enforced. I scream at the TV every time the flag comes out that there was a foul when the ball was clearly over a players head or so far out of bounds to be uncatchable. Whatever, Always enforce that rule or pull it from the rules.

RE: Bagman's Bucks vs.Michigan

Love it. I have always called him a whiner. Meanwhile his brother is an 180Deg. opposite on the sideline.

RE: Bagman's Bucks vs.Michigan

Gonna have to step it up if they play the Tide and want to stay in the game. Typical half today. Tide allows it to be anyone's game and then the second half they run them down and start scoring. Harbaugh spent more time on the field that his special teams did. Anyone know the rule for being in the middle of the field between plays? I have never heard it explained. They did get a sideline warning though. Sorry that such a hard fought game had to have a loser. BUT, I grinned every time Harbaugh got upset and the look on his face at the end of the game. Congratulation Bags!!! Meanwhile back at LSU I am not sure they made the right choice but who knows. I know he can recruit and hoping he can make the most of the talent.

Bagman's Bucks vs.Michigan

Looks like tomorrow I will be able to devote full time to this game. Something usually interferes with my college games unless it is LSU. I expect a great game and I am rooting for OSU. I respect Michigan and its history but do not like Harbaugh. Hoping I see a lot of pained looks on his face and will count the number of times he whines.;) Speaking of LSU. Wondering who the coach will be. Orgeron is a great recruiter and motivator and has the team on his side but don't feel he would live up to the expectations at LSU. They are a tough crowd and expect a National Championship nearly every year. No year is considered a success unless they beat Alabama. Rumors are it was between Jimbo Fisher and Tom Herman with Herman now in the lead. I have seen John "Chucky" Gruden's name as a possible contender for Texas. He has signed a long time contract with TV but Texas has the money if he wants the job. Personally I dislike him as he too often comments on things when they are not what is going on field. Good Luck Bags. Take some chill pills and relax.

RE: Dak Prescott

Them 'boys gotta do something with the defense. No pressure on the QB and although they won, Cousin's light up the Cowboy's for 450 yards. Seems odd that the offense is carrying the team when most times the defense carries them.

RE: Dak Prescott

Anyone see what he did with his water cup on live TV? Threw it towards the trash can and missed. Got up, picked it up and threw it in. Little things like that impress me with players. Shows ,e they have a little class. His Grandfather was principal just 10 miles across the state line from me in Louisiana. Grandmother was a teacher. His single mother raised 3 boys and managed a truck stop in northern Louisiana. She insisted that education and respect for others be the norm. The local papers printed an article saying Nick Sabin came to the school and was interested in his brother. Principle called her house because he was not in school. When told that Nick Sabin was at the school and she needed to bring him in for a meeting. Her response was "He's sick and I don't care who wants to see him, he's not going to school." During Dallas' bye week businesses wanted to sign him up for endorsements but he said they would have to wait. He was going home to visit his Grandmother and family. One season does not prove a player will continue to perform. I am waiting to see how he does next year. If he continues J. Jones will need to dig deeper in his wallet, Prescott signed a 4 year contract of $550,000. for the first year.

RE: College Football Playoff Rankings Out!

Bags I know how much you love your Buckeyes and watched during commercials on the LSU game BUT I don't see them or anyone else being able to stay with the Tide. It pains me terribly to say that.:). I know we will remain friends after I post the above. LSU-What a terrible game plan and time management. Not even Alabama could push the defense off the ball as well as Florida did. Just as bad was the poor tacking on Florida's last drive. Especially in the 4th quarter. I lay that loss on the offense. Turn overs and inability to run the ball consistently.

RE: 30 amp for duel AC

OP-At a campground I meet a man who had 30A service to his rig. He added a second AC in the bedroom and the installers ran a wire in the ceiling and behind the bathroom sink to the bottom outside of the RV. He then runs an extension cord to the campground breaker box. May not work for you but may be an option.

RE: Coffee

Have tried lot's of coffee makers but the very best coffee I used to drink was done by a percolator. Don't see those any more.

RE: Duramax

What are the lights for on the bottom right? Something wrong with you gauges. Avg. MPG of 13.4 at that speed? Even if it was a result of lower speeds to climb at that speed should have dropped the mpg.

What internet provider are you using? Mine has free McAfee. May not be the best but I have had no issues.

RE: Final Plans

Sorry to hear of you problems Bob. Will pray for you and hope you have many more years. I see where you have contacted the Patriot Guards. P.M. me. I am a member of a military honor guard. We perform military funerals free of charge. P.M. me, perhaps I can check to see if they have a group in your area. We are in S.E. Texas.

RE: Potable water hose gasket?

---snip---I use potable water hoses on my rig but I see all kinds of hoses hooked up at camp grounds and the residents have not turned into Zombies.what about last night? They were out in force. Amazing how much money people will pay to dress their kids. DIL bought 1,080 pieces of candy and it was gone 15 minutes before curfew. Dead in street and people bring their kids in vans from all over. It is THE place to go.

RE: What is with the $100.00 limit at the fuel pumps?

A little research will tell you that the chip cards are not as secure as one would think. austinga, I agree with you. I often see 2 charges on my "pending" section of my card statement when viewing on line. Actual charge and "$1.00". Once the card company has approved, the $1.00 goes away. Usually the next day.
