2016/2017 F250 6.2 Gasser MPG

I've searched and can't find an answer so I thought I'd post. Looking at ditching our 2012 F150 because of quality issues. Hubby want's to be able to plow so we are looking at new F250s. What is a reasonable expectation for mpg (other than cr@ppy!), non-towing. Absolutely love the F150 but the last straw was having to replace the transmission wiring harness at 45K miles. This is the 3rd or 4th major issue we've had. Will say Ford and the dealer are standing fast behind their product. They didn't even make us pay the $100 EW deductible on this one.

RE: Are there a lot of jobs

Depends on what you do. My husband is employed by one of the largest defense contractors in the country and they currently have 800 open jobs. My little company of 55 people has 6 open positions. A fair number of retail outlets and fast food chains are also advertising available jobs.

RE: Prayer Request

Thanks guys-it's much appreciated. I feel so helpless. I sent her a Vermont Teddy Bear angel because I didn't know what else to do. This just sucks wind.

RE: Camping with a St. Bernard

Gorgeous! Just remember the slime rags! :B Had a bloodhound, so I speak from experience! I would just introduce her slowly, short trips, limited stays and just watch how she deals with strangers.

RE: Most RV friendly Cities and States

Truck and trailer parking heavily regulated, to as far as having to register with some fascist city hall to get permission to park anywhere in the town. No thanks. What town did you require permission in? That's news to me. New England isn't for everybody but I wouldn't lump all the states together. Maine is RV friendly and a fantastic place to visit. Massachusetts-not so much. Have no interest in Connecticut or Rhode Island-have never vacationed in either. Have never been to CA but can't wait to get out there. Will have to fly, though. Don't lump LA with the national parks. The math just doesn't work.

RE: Most RV friendly Cities and States

The New England states are as RV friendly as they can be, given their very old infrastructure such as small roads and low bridges in a few places. The short season also makes it expensive but where else can you drive through so may states in such a short time frame!

Prayer Request

I know this happens all to often on here, but I'm asking anyone who's willing to pray for one of my closest and dearest friends. I found out a few days ago that she was just diagnosed with an aggressive form of uterine and cervical cancer. She had a hysterectomy done 3 weeks ago and started 18 weeks of chemo today. If there was ever a women that deserved sainthood it would be her. She lost her oldest son at the age of 17, her husband two years ago, and her other son was diagnosed with MS a number of years ago. She is one of the strongest people I have ever known and is tackling this head-on as only she can. I am devastated and still having trouble wrapping my head around the fact I may lose her way too soon. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. Thanks.

RE: How can WE control what we see?

I choose to thicken my skin and just ignore. Why feed their ego by blocking them? I prefer to poke the bear Yabut we're on to you! :B

He's having a blast. This is the most important of all.

RE: High School Football Advice

So again my poor advice enjoy this time. Not poor advice, based on life experience. To the OP: I still firmly believe it should be his choice, but if it's a scholarship you are after then choose whatever sport he is better at. Just be prepared for a potentially miserable child. The "love of the game" can fade quickly when it's a requirement. My son is not an athlete but fortunately very smart. He's also extremely talented art-wise and has made a considerable amount of money on the side doing graphic arts (he's a mechanical engineer by degree). He loves being an ME but loves art more. I asked him about pursuing it as a career and his response was "if it's work it's not fun any more". Honestly I think pushing a kid into a sport just for scholarship money is too much stress for the kid. Better to have a happy kid. Back to my original thought. Let him choose.

RE: High School Football Advice

A young person's brain is still developing and does not have the capacity to make correct decisions....all the time. Adults don't either. We don't learn unless we make mistakes. BIL had some good advice year's ago. Unless they are going to be irreparably harmed let them choose. I see no reason why Dad should be making the call.

Let him decide. He's old enough.

RE: Some Odd questions from Canadian Customs

It assumes that what the Border Customs officials are doing is actually EFFECTIVE. It doesn't assume anything. I'm merely stating they are doing their job and it's in the crosser's best interest to act accordingly. There's no way to truly prove it's effectiveness one way or the other. And yes, I've gone through customs in other countries. And I can tell you our Visa systems does not work as well as one would hope, but that's a whole other discussion and not relevant to this one.

RE: New England Campgrounds

As far as reviews go, somebody is always going to complain about nothing and somebody will be the type that sees roses in anything. Read ALL reviews and look for patterns, i.e. multiple complaints about the same thing. Then decide if it's something you can deal with. Also look to see if the complainers have reviewed elsewhere and see if they only post bad things. You have to work with the law of averages so-to-speak.

RE: Some Odd questions from Canadian Customs

Come on dude Tx, get over yourself. Those guys are just there doing their jobs and trying to protect this great country of ours. Give them a break. You will live longer and have lower blood pressure. Be nice, it will not hurt you. Just saying. No offense intended. X2. Not saying you would but some who complain about being questioned at the border would be the first to complain if someone made it through that shouldn't. Having been in the world of defense contracting and national security has given me a very different perspective on this type of thing. It's a tough job and the advice to not speak unless spoken to is excellent. Don't give them a reason to detain you. And don't be flip-they have a tendency to not like that!

RE: Some Odd questions from Canadian Customs

Other than the gun questions, those are pretty normal things to ask. We've been asked some other random questions like who is your favorite sports team and the like. They are ensuring you are truly who you say you are. Try crossing the border when you have THREE people in the car that work for well-known US defense contractors. That piques interest big time!

RE: Best lot to leave car when flying home from Charleston SC?

Got it. Beaufort (LOVE Beaufort!) and Charleston are far enough apart that a limo probably isn't cost effective. At Logan if we are going to be gone more than 5 days a limo is cheaper than the $35/day to park. That said I did find this website: https://www.airportparkingreservations.com/charleston_airport_parking_chs that may help. Someone had suggested this to me at one point. You can put in any airport and it will give you what's available at what price.

RE: Standard TV Park Rules - clear as can be........

"No clotheslines are PROHIBITED". Doesn't mean you have to put one up-means they don't discriminate what kind of line you use!
