RE: singing at soccer games

I played soccer from 4th grade through high school and played on a travelling all-star team before my senior year and still find it a boring game to watch. We saw a few Portland Timbers games when we lived there and 90 minutes is a long time to watch a game with only 1 goal scored.

RE: Canadian Banks - Changing American to Canadian $

Do credit unions allow members of other credit unions to exchange currency? Back when I used to work in fast food, Canadians used to ask if they could pay with Canadian money and I always told them a lower exchange rate so they would choose to pay with American money so my nightly deposit was easier.

RE: "Keen "to replace V6 with inline Gas engines

My 1975 AMC Hornet had a 232 cubic inch straight six that could burn rubber when I wanted to.

RE: How do you avoid Bio Diesel (over B5) while on the road?

Are you sure about that? Oregon used to give a 5 cent/gal tax credit for B99 or B50 a few years ago. I don't remember anything about not paying the normal fuel taxes. Now that I've moved to North Dakota, there are very few places that offer biodiesel. One place in Jamestown lets you select B99, B50 or B5. I wish I could find a freddy around our area that was B-20, since B-20 is exempt from Oregon road tax plus freddylow price would make diesel REAL cheap around here. Up and down I-5 I've only seen B-5 at freddys

RE: olde timers help me out !

I'm not an old-timer yet, but my first car was a 1975 AMC Hornet purchased in 1984 for around $800. How did I survive without cup holders, power windows, power locks, air conditioning, and just an AM radio to keep me company when I was driving solo?

RE: Help me understand California Turnouts - Updated

Even when not towing, there are always morons to deal with like last weekend we were on a rural 2-lane highway with a speed limit of 60 MPH and I had the cruise set at 61 because I like to live on the edge. We had a tailgater for a while who aborted one passing attempt and I knew that I would have to hit the brakes on his 2nd attempt as he cut me off trying to get back over. Then he proceeded to drive just a few MPH faster than me so I doubt he saved much time for risking at least 4 lives in 3 vehicles.

RE: Why Do They Do This?

It's the same reason newer appliances only last 10-15 years and older ones lasted for 30 years.

GM says don't drive some 2016 and 2017 trucks

Link to news story General Motors is recalling some trucks and SUVs because of an issue with their front upper control arms. The recall includes several 2016-2017 Chevrolet, GMC and Cadillac trucks and SUVs. For now, GM is asking owners to not drive the affected vehicles. GM recall info -- VIN required

RE: Question for Veterans

I have a baseball cap from the Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor. I had someone at an aquarium notice the battlship on my cap and ask me if I wanted the military discount. I told him that I wasn't a veteran and was far too young to have served on that ship.

RE: Man swims from sinking car on live TV in Houston !

Could it be possible that the news crew truck (behind the view) caused a false sense of the water not being that high? You can see in the video how quick they "stepped up" from the deep stuff. Not letting the driver off the hook for being stupid, but if one were driving on a "water covered" road and saw a van in the not so far distance, then one might assume that to get to where they are located is safe to do. This is why authorities say "don't drown, turn around." I would hope that most people recognize that they are heading into an underpass and not just going through a few inches of water. This kind of reminds me of this gem from The Daily Show a few years back. Reporter sitting in a boat in just a few inches of water.

RE: Why are so many rest stops closed?

The problem with rest areas in the median is that you have left lane exit and entrance ramps which can cause problems. North Dakota has one and even though traffic volume is very low, most people can't get up to the 75 MPH speed limit before they enter the fast lane.

RE: A Philosophical Question

They may just want to hear that he died honorably serving his country and maybe know if there was anyone there with him when he died (Like when Bubba died in Forrest Gump) or if he ever talked about hopes for the future when the war was over.

RE: Jeep GC Diesel - Coachmen

As someone stated, you need the actual loaded weight. Our first hard-sided RV had a dry weight of 3,800 lbs and weighed 5,500 lbs with full propane tanks, 230 gallons of fresh water, a week's worth of food and beverages, box of firewood, and all of the stuff that stayed in the camper. We have a 2014 eocdiesel and also had a 2008 CRD and both Grand Cherokees had no problems with 19 and 23 foot trailers.

RE: Aarrrrgggghhh!!! House hunting!!!!!!!!!-Updated

Buying and selling can be stressful. When we put our last home for sale on a Friday evening, we didn't get any activity over the weekend, but then had multiple offers over the asking price on Tuesday. After moving back to Fargo, we started looking at homes again. One had a line of people touring the house and our offer just over asking price was accepted. The home inspection revealed that the toilet in the master bath wasn't even hooked up to water and the sink drain had a major leak when the inspector ran some water. We ended up walking away from that one.

RE: Painting a cement floor

The house we purchased last fall has a new garage with the epoxy floor coating and it is very slippery when wet (which is most of the winter with melting snow dripping off our Jeep) so I'm thinking about putting down some rubber mats where we normally walk. Also, be sure to keep animals out of there when the epoxy is wet. One friend's cats got into the garage and tracked the stuff all over the stairs which meant new carpet fo the stairs and a trip to the vet to get their paws cleaned up.

RE: East to west Coast

The highest summit in SoCal is 4,183 ft. Signs just past the Oregon border note the highest point on I-5 at 4,310 ft. Even if the pass is open, you may be required to carry chains for the trailer in addition to chains for the truck in Oregon and Washington. Going north on I5 can be easy, you can wait out any storms, and just travel a day or two later once the roads are cleared. But once in Washington, if you need to be there say on the 20th, you will need to drive on no matter what. .. There are only major passes over the 'grapvine' just north of Los Angeles at around 6,500' elevation. It rarely snows there, but there is highway 14/58 through Mohave to Bakersfield to bypass that around 3,500' elevation. Northern California to the Oregon border is another pass, around 5,000', that can be snowed in for a day or two, but most likely will be open. Leaving Grants Pass is a triple set of hills, only about 1,500' climb each, and then it is basically a valley all the way to Portland OR>

RE: VW/Audi

He was referring to CARB standards that are also used by some states in the Northeast. Our 2008 Grand Cherokee could only be sold in states that didn't use the CARB standards since the NOx emissions were too high. That's why most diesels use the urea system to reduce NOx. Not to upset people but I like how people are more worried about losing some mpg than our worlds air going to s**t. Yea just leave it to the few states that check for major pollution to clean every one elses air. I live in cali and as much as I hate it I have spent tones of cash on smog checks, smog related parts to help keep our worlds air clearer so we all can breath a little better. Really? California is cleaning 'everyone else's' air? Last I heard, the jet stream flows from west to east. I have a very hard time picturing Denver's or Chicago's or Dallas' smog reaching the west coast. Sorry jjj, CA does not clean up everyone else's air. It does do a great job of using Oregon, Washington, Utah and Arizona's electricity and/or water.

RE: Fridge Off While Gassing up

Our propane is always turned off when travelling. A typical 8-10 hour day isn't long enough for the fridge to warm up very much with a few ice packs added for good measure. Isn't it more likely that a leak in the propane system will start when you are bouncing down the road vs. sitting at a campground?
