RE: Ford Backup Assist

I am in favor of anything that makes rv ing easier and safer. But does it? I think it's just the opposite. When you get dependent on an aid of some sort and you can't do it on your own, what happens if the aid malfunctions and you are caught totally off guard and unprepared? As far as I'm concerned the vast majority of these things should be done away with so we concentrate on how to drive. Case in point: http://fusion.net/story/139703/self-parking-car-accident-no-pedestrian-detection/ Mercedes has had similar issues with some of their detection systems. One of the first things I teach during my firearms safety lectures is to never trust a mechanical safety because it can malfunction. There is NOTHING that beats correct handling of a firearm for safety and I feel likewise for cars.

RE: Ford Backup Assist

Place your hand at the bottom of the steering wheel. Move your hand and wheel to the left to make the trailer turn left. Turn to the right to make the trailer turn right. It's the exact same principle as sighting a firearm. I am a certified firearms instructor and a small bore rifle coach. I can sight a firearm and I still can't back up a trailer. "Easy" is a relative term.

RE: European auto sales bounce back.

Interesting. I wonder if it's because of a more stable economy, decrease in fuel prices (not sure if they've had the same drop), or both.

RE: Scam Call Alert! PSA

Have been receiving the same scam phone calls, but coming from multiple states-FL, CA, TX to name a few. Short answer is if anyone claims to be from Microsoft and you haven't called, it's a scam.

RE: Survey-How do you reserve?

Was about 95% online. Only used phone if there was no online option.

RE: Ford Backup Assist

I realized I had gotten careless backing up because I could depend on technology to let me know when to stop. Exactly.

RE: Yellowstone 4th of July

Have to agree with the rest. This is an excellent teaching opportunity for a number of reasons. First and foremost it's a way to teach them that sometimes you can't always get what you want when you want it and that it's not the end of the world. Also, you have the opportunity to "substitute" something that is spectacular in it's own right that will allow you to showcase the beauty of nature. You can go to fireworks far more often than you will get to Yellowstone.

He's "smiling" just like a Sussex spaniel!

RE: Ford Backup Assist

Not a fan solely from the aspect of not learning how to drive correctly. I can't back a trailer up worth spit, but I'd rather gain the ability to do so rather than rely on something electronic. What if it malfunctions?

RE: Flooded trailer

That's great news! Enjoy the summer! BTW, I would make sure you have pictures of all the damage so there's no "he said she said" when repairs are made.

RE: Anyone not want to retire?

Since I don't know what retirement will be like, I don't think I can answer. Definitely don't want to keep doing what I do (office manager) but to not have a reason to get up in the morning scares me.

Two Bandera, TX campgrounds flooded

I just read about Pioneer RV Park and Riverside RV Park in Bandera, TX, being flooded an evacuated. Hoping everyone is OK.

RE: From Boston MA to Williamsburg VA..

I84-I87-I287-I78-I81. This is the route we take. Avoids a whole lot of messes. It adds mileage, but reduces stress. Not sure how much time you have, but we often stop in College Park MD. That route also takes you by Cabelas in Hamburg, PA. Great place to take a rest. I'd also recommend getting off I95 onto Rt. 17. Saves a chunk and is a fairly easy drive.

RE: Opinions for First National Park Visit

You are looking at 5 days to get to Yellowstone, and 4 days to get to South Dakota. I would go to Badlands NP, Custer State Park, and Wind Cave NP. Lots to do in and around Custer and you can use that as a home base to visit the other areas. Second choice would be Rocky Mountain NP in CO, and a visit to Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, which is also about a 4 day drive. Keep in mind those are 500 mile days, which is a very long time for a 4 year old to be in the car. There may be other stops along the way that others can suggest. Driving a day or two and stopping for a day or two is probably the best way to handle a 4 year old.

RE: Toadless

We'll see... I'm gonna get screwed on it. Not necessarily. That's what you have insurance and the company lawyers for. I had a similar thing happen to me not quite two years ago, except I had Hanover suing Hanover. They even went so far as to recover the damage the tow company had done. Don't settle until you've pushed them as far as you can. If they don't cough to your satisfaction, that's when you get an attorney involved. This is what mine looked like: http://i706.photobucket.com/albums/ww68/lcrowe/carfrontview_zps1aec0553.jpg The car also did what it was supposed to do.

RE: Memorial Weekend Ruined

The earth does not heal from oil spills it hides oil spills. I know this because my father drilled over 100 wells as a field supertendant for an oil company. I grew up in an oil field and worked there to fund my college education. We need oil to live. It is a shame this happened. We just need to clean it up the best we can. Travelyn that was a cheap shot. Exactly. But the reality of life in the US, in 2015. Doesn't make it right and shouldn't be promoted on this forum. If I remember correctly, any talk of legal action is not permitted.

RE: North Carolina Ocean Campgrounds.

If you want to lay on the beach you better pick a different state. Huh? See above comments about campgrounds. Our preference is Camp Hatteras.

RE: Memorial Weekend Ruined

I agree it's disappointing and frustrating but relatively speaking, quite minor. If it happened to me, I'd try to find another place or just plan day trips for the weekend.
