RE: See the USA with our Chevorlet

I'll chime in for Nebraska. HWY 2 between Alliance and Grand Island is a great alternative to I-80 if you have the time. I rode it on my Goldwing and it was very scenic. Watch out for those turtles! Maybe THIS will help.

RE: Camping With a Motorcycle

I share your same interests. I'll keep an eye on this thread.

RE: Sams Club?

Our local Sams club allows overnight parking (apparently). There are folks there all the time (both trucks and RV's). I would also ask permissions first though. While I am there I'd also be stocking up. I have never personally slept in a parking lot. I just find a local campground.

RE: Problem Opening Programs, Windows 8.1

so....is the mouse issue fixed?

RE: Problem Opening Programs, Windows 8.1

I wonder if your mouse pad on your laptop isn't a little too sensitive. That's what it sounds like to me. I personally hate my mouse pad on the laptop. I often hit it when I'm typing and it ticks me off. In some cases I disable it. If you get a context menu then your mouse is working. What has changed since the issue first started happening? Perhaps you can do a rollback to that point in time and see if that doesn't help.

RE: Favorite Camping Location

I have a thing for Crater of the Diamond SP. I'm not much for digging holes in a field but something about that campground makes me want to back as much as possible.

RE: experiences towing with 3.5L ecoboost

I pulled my 6K lb (loaded) trailer through the hills around Branson with no issues. I got the 3.73 gears which helps. My rear end was also a little soggy but adding a leaf spring did the trick. That was a $300 update. I'm very happy with it after 45K miles. I'll be returning to Branson later this year with a bigger trailer but I have no concerns.

Neat! I'm doing it wrong.

RE: Seeking a used 1/2 Ton Tot Hauler. Ideas?

{Post deleted. No for-sale posts allowed.} :) I came very close to buying one of those down in KC. I liked it but it came with nothing on it so by the time I added the beds, bathroom and kitchen etc. I was looking at 22K - 26K+. I made two trips down there to look it over. I also liked that it was lower to the ground (for loading/unloading etc.).

RE: Seeking a used 1/2 Ton Tot Hauler. Ideas?

I towed a 19RR with my Ford 1/2 ton and it was no problem. It was a great trailer for rallies and such. I now tow a 25RR with the same half ton. Still tows like a breeze. Adding the wing in the back didn't make much of a difference. If anything it dropped the hitch weight a little. I used to have a Tundra 4.7L truck and it didn't handle the 19RR as well. What comforts are you looking for?

RE: Dangerously low temps/Florida warnings for pets??

I do recall one year being at a place called Arrowhead (if memory serves) in California and at the top of mountain in a parking lot was a very small pile of snow overtaking a few parking spaces. Sticking out of the snow was a sign that read "Danger stay clear". I took a photo of it but I don't know what I did with it.

RE: suggestions

We also stayed https://www.facebook.com/RonColemanMining/photos/a.175683695828164.49837.159180254145175/777439988985862/?type=1&theaterHERE once and had a lot of fun. At that time the campground was challenging to get to due to a rough, steep road but apparently they've made improvements. It might be worth checking out again.

RE: suggestions

Petit Jean SP is nice. We've been through there a few times. My favorite place is the campground at Crater of the Diamonds SP but that is further South. If tent camping or small trailer camping Compton Ridge campground in Branson is nice. I haven't been there since the new owners took over but the camp sites are all away from the highway. We otherwise stay at the Wilderness across the street with our camper now days. There are tons of campgrounds at Branson that I've never been to before though.

RE: Father/ daughter truck project

...and she will appreciate the truck and take good care of it...unlike some of the teenagers (not mine fortunately) I am dealing with about now.

RE: Chinese tires on TT

I'd also carefully check the other tires for unusual wear. I've seen in the past bad alignment causing tire issues. Don't want to ruin the new tires too! Plus your remaining tire has now been over the weight limit so at best it should become a spare. Sadly, when I was purchasing new tires CHINA was the norm as indicated. Lucky for me no issues so far.

RE: Legally copying DVDs to a laptop

I took a look at the software packages mentioned in the original post. There are also others (like Movavi Screen Capture) that do similar tasks. The Applian one looks really handy. I would just recommend that anyone using this type of software packages to use a PC that's dedicated to that cause. Essentially, your installing software on a computer that's there to snoop on your activities. in the Applian one it appears they are installing a proxy service on your machine which captures everything you do in your browser. The user agreement also indicates they send "stuff" to the home base. I'm not saying these companies aren't legit but we've seen "flashlight" apps and the like on smart phones before sending data from our phones to God knows where. I personally wouldn't want to do my banking or shopping in front of anything like that. Just my two cents worth.

RE: Is Verizon throttling 4G unlimited data now?

I'll chime in and defend Verizon a little bit on that. It seems, at least around here, when they go through the motions to add towers, the neighbors always complain and fight it. They don't want that ugly thing in their neighborhood.

RE: photo essay on dogs

My dog is what you call a Texas Healer. She loves to run around the yard at 80 MPH. Unfortunately, I only have an acre but she eyeballs the cows across the street all the time. I'm afraid it's a matter of time before she ventures over there. She doesn't fear anything and that's what I'm afraid of.
