RE: Cross country move?

I think it was around $6,000 to move our stuff from Oregon to North Dakota although that did not include any vehicles. He had 3 different homes in his load so it took about a week while we drove our vehicle in 3 days. Luckily, we were able to delay our unload by a day since there was a small problem at the apartment we were moving into. Otherwise we would have had to pay the local agent to unload the semi into their warehouse and then pay them to load up the local delivery truck in addition to the money we already paid.

RE: Jeff Bezos now the richest ever at $106 Billion !

As of 2013, Bill and Melinda Gates had donated $28 billion to their foundation. I have no idea how much the others on that list have given away.

RE: Tow/Camper connected

I think our Durango and Grand Cherokees only has the +12V pin active when the ignition was on or set to accessory.

RE: The Lumber Yard

A lot of people don't realize that when they buy a 2"x4" board it's not a true 2" by 4" in any length. Home Depot, Menards face lawsuits over lumber size description Lumberyards are cheating us! ;)

RE: The Lumber Yard

Reminds me of the time my wife asked me to pick up coffee creamer for someone at her office. We don't drink coffee and I picked up the powdered stuff when they wanted the liquid form.

RE: Vote For The Best College Football Rivals?

North Dakota / North Dakota State will be in the same conference again so that rivalry will go back into high gear if UND ever gets good again. When They Were Kings The NDSU-UND Rivalry

RE: What is it????

Some laptops have switches that can turn the wi-fi on and off or it could be a software setting.

The sewage treatment plant in Hillsboro had a public dump station I used a few times. Cities on the other side of Portland might also have them.

RE: Forum to discuss banking experiences?

We've been credit union members for 20 years. You can cash checks at almost any credit union in the U.S. that is a co-op credit union and use any credit union's ATM for free. Our credit union also reimburses us for ATM fees at the end of the month so finding an ATM is no problem.

RE: FBI Investigating College Basketball!

This may just be the tip ofthe iceberg. I heard one former athlete on the radio who isn't involved in basketball anymore talk about how he attended an NCAA regional tournament with one of the people implicated and this person was casually talking in a restaraunt about paying $100,000 to the family of a high school player.

RE: Hurricane Irma Aftermath

Some houses have domed roofs and walls made of reinforced concrete. There was an article in one of my magazine recently about building safe rooms for tornadoes. The author had a room with reinforced concrete walls and roof and the metal door was the weak point. He survived but his wife did not. One expert at a university in Texas thought a plywood sheet hit the door between the handle and the hinge. Does anyone know what a house looks like if it's designed/constructed to hold up in Cat 4 winds, with some flooding? I know we have the technology, but can it be done such that it looks similar to an average 3Bed/2Bath house?

RE: HURRICANE IRMA could be a Cat 5 !

There was someone on the NBC news last night saying they were not evacuating because their house had "hurricane proof" windows and doors. I've found info on the internet with windows that can stop a 2x4 anywhere from just 35 MPH up to 140 MPH or winds up to 200 MPH. Of course, some debris might have sharp and pointy edges that act different than a stud fired out of a cannon. I guess we'll find out how good those windows really are the hard way. Last I saw possible impact with Flordia or Cuba and Cat SIX.. There is not a Cat Six, and no reason for one, because the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale is designed to measure the potential damage of a hurricane to man-made structures. Robert Simpson stated that "...when you get up into winds in excess of 155 mph (249 km/h) you have enough damage if that extreme wind sustains itself for as much as six seconds on a building it's going to cause rupturing damages that are serious no matter how well it's engineered." Robert Simpson was co-developer of the Saffir-Simpson Scale.

RE: HURRICANE IRMA could be a Cat 5 !

If the eye goes north just off the Florida coast, won't that be worse as it can maintain strength over the water and keep flooding the east coast as the counter-clockwise circulation pushes the storm surge to the west?

RE: Solar eclipse Canada

They want you to plan ahead for big traffic jams in areas where the path of totality is not too far from big cities. ... Then today while traveling down the highway near home, the big LED road warning signs were posting: "Solar Eclipse August 21. Plan Ahead". For what? Turning on my headlights?

RE: Been a while since I have seen this

I use hand signals on my bicycle and don't think I've ever seen them used in a vehicle.

RE: Got scared, then mad yesterday

Maybe he only heard the first part about you asking for help and not why you needed help. For about 6 months, every time I went to the grocery store close to the freeway and hotels someone would ask for money to get somewhere.

RE: Soda Crate Moral Dilemma (& Informal Survey)

It's easy to find a Coke or Pepsi distributor. Just drop off the crate at a small-town store that sells soda and they will probably hold it for the truck driver. :) Finding a single-use paper cup from McDonald's is different than finding an item like milk crate or 2-liter crate designed for repeated use.

RE: Soda Crate Moral Dilemma (& Informal Survey)

You can buy them online for around $10 so they probably cost less than half of that for the soda company to buy. Call the distributor and ask if they want to send someone out to pick it up. If not, give it a coat of paint and it's yours.
