RE: Bend Oregon- What the weather in mid Oct?

If anyone still cares, Bend is drier than Portland as it's on the other side of the cascades. Even in Portland, it's generally warm and dry in the fall until November when we get our heaviest rain from the pineapple express.

My alma mater, North Dakota State is #4 in this ranking.

RE: Football: College vs nfl

I like them both, but pro football a little better as the teams are more evenly matched. Blowouts are far more common in the college game.

RE: Moles

Are there animals that act like moles? We thought we had one with tunnels coming up to the surface and then we saw an animal like a squirrel or chipmunk digging a hole in the grass. We have one cat who spends a few hours outside most days, but she's too slow to catch anything.

RE: Are ya ready for some football

Did you hear about the fire in the library at the Alabama student-athlete tutoring building? Most of the books hadn't even been colored yet.

RE: A peeve of mine.

I generally won't wave if someone pulls over to let people pass. Then again, I won't tailgate if someone's going slow either.

RE: How to move a million pound load

They have shipped giant equipment via rail on specialized railcars that were so heavy it could only be done in the winter when the ground was frozen solid between Duluth and the tar sands in Canada.

RE: Ram Eco-Diesel vs F150 2.7 TT - Davis Dam

That's because the Jeep has 8 gears. Our 2008 CRD Grand Cherokee was at 2,000 RPM in 5th gear so it never had to shift down into 4th unless we were towing. The 2014 ecodiesel's 8th gear doesn't hit 2,000 RPM until 77 MPH. I am not surprised how that 2.7 Ecoboost can out pull the 3.0 Ecodiesel. I have the Ecodiesel in a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and it will shift out of 8th on the slightest incline without pulling a trailer. The 3.5 Ecoboost in my 2012 F150 needs a very steep hill before it will shift out of 6th. Fuel economy, well we won't talk about that. Interestingly enough owners of the Ram with the Ecodisel are reporting fuel economy as good as the Grand Cherokee with the same engine.

RE: HowOld Codgers Can Afford That New Prevost

I have a retro cycling jersey from the early 1990s I've considered putting up on eBay. It's never been worn and looks like this with those funny-looking floppy disks. Remember those? http://cdn.cycling-jersey-collection.com/images/2014-01-28-decca-wordperfect-suntour-colnago-team-jersey-trikot-maglia-maillot.jpg width=600

RE: UPDATE! Ordered a 2015 Eco-Diesel today! :)

For what it's worth, our Grand Cherokee with the ecodiesel averaged 30.5 MPG on a trip from Portland to central California and back. The EPA estimate is "only" 28 MPG highway for the 4WD version. Congrats Don, Like others I'm interested in finding out what the real world MPG, acceleration is....solo and at maximum tow rating.

RE: Internet cost at home

Our HOA has a wide area network which allows us to get internet access separate from the phone and cable companies. We pay $30/month for 100 Mbps access and could pay an extra $60/mo. for 1 Gbps access.

They don't make muscle cars like they used to

Dodge is offering a Challenger Hellcat that runs the 1/4 mile in less than 10 seconds. url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYol7m3WjGQ I'm sure it handles better than the original challenger, too.

RE: cost of storing your RV

We pay about $80/month in suburban Portland at a place with on-site managers, a dump station, and spigot to fill fresh water tanks. It's a pull-through site that can accommodate RVs up to 28 ft. They also have some covered storage and I have no idea how much that costs.

RE: Favorite 'mindless' movie to zone out

The Back to the Future trilogy. I've seen all of them so often I can can recite most of the lines. Marty and I are the same age and I'm kind of disappointed we won't have flying cars and hoverboards in 2015.

RE: Coldest Antartic June Ever Recorded

The link in the original post doesn't mention that satellites reveal why Antarctic sea ice grows as Arctic melts

RE: Hurricane to hit the East Coast on the 4th of July !

Ocean temps as far north as North Carolina earlier today (July 1st) were in the 80s http://www.nodc.noaa.gov/dsdt/cwtg/satl_tmap.html http://www.nodc.noaa.gov/dsdt/cwtg/satl_tmap.html For hurricane strength winds to develop the surface water temperature must be 80 degrees or better. I doubt that anything like that is much north of Florida at present. However "Sandy" that wreaked havoc on New Jersey was a tropical storm that combined with a nor'easter to form a gigantic low, the likes of which I'd never seen before. The one thing I know for sure. Hurricanes, big tropical depressions, nor'easters etc. don't watch TV or listen to radio, they do what ever they want. When the conditions are right for that kind of development, be aware and be prepared to bug out. If caught unaware, the traffic, the rising water all of the other conditions often prevent travel. Stay clear if possible, pay close attention if your in range. Better safe than sorry! Ignorance and impatience are the enemy of safety. Because an evacuation was not needed, it was not a mistake, a rehearsal perhaps! Happy Independence Day to all.

RE: Just read a thread on camping etiquette and dogs

We don't own dogs, but a dog exercise area referred to in the original post sounds like an off-leash area vs a dedicated pet bathroom.

RE: Rebates

I just received a rebate of $4.39 from a promotion for a free bottle of Scope and it came on a credit card. I bought a small amount at the grocery store and used loose change to get the amount due down to $4.39 so I didn't have to bother a cashier with put $4.39 on this card and the rest on another card.

RE: Careful what you wish for

Kind of like how prohibitionist lobbied to make alcohol sales illegal on Sunday except for hotels with 10 or more rooms. It wasn't very long before saloons had 10 very small "hotel rooms" so they could stay open on Sunday and it doesn't take much imagination to know what kind of side business opened in those tiny rooms.

RE: campground directions

I gave someone the wrong directions to find our house because I never paid attention to the street names en route from the freeway. I sent them on Amberglen instead of Amberwood or vice versa.
