RE: Leaves are changin'

We are heading to Gatlinburg/ Pidgeon Forge region today. Spending a week there. Hopefully we see some color. Taking motorcycle and staying in a motel. They say colors are changing in higher elevations. Plenty to do otherwise.

RE: Best RV parks near Washington, D.C. and New York City?

We just spent a week in the D.C. area. We stayed in a hotel though. Just a few blocks from the metro. My first experience with the metro. We paid $2 for a senor card and round trip from Balston to Federal Triangle cost about $2.50. Just put credit on the card. We would leave about 8:30 A.M. and miss the biggest rush. As far as I'm concerned it's the best way to travel there. Something I noticed and was amazed by was the friendliness of the local people. We must have looked lost as we were asked if we needed help several times.

RE: Craiglist buyers...scratching my head...

I've given up on trying to sell on Craigslist. Usually about the first 4 replies are scams then the rest want the item for next to nothing. I recently listed a kitchen range in excellent condition. Not new but clean, well maintained and in good working order. Kitchen Aid convection oven. Asking $200. Several " I'll take it" but all no shows. Finally had a taker but offered me half of asking price. I got more satisfaction donating it to a veteran in need than selling to that person. Too big of a hassle.

RE: Help please in finding dad's Veteran info

Veterans are usually encouraged to register their DD214 with the recorders office upon discharge. That may be a good place to start.

RE: Arlington National Cemetary

I will be there for the first time next month. It's been a long journey but I think I'm ready. I'm still apprehensive about how I will take it. I'm hoping it will help the healing process. There are names of friends and relatives on the Wall.

RE: Quetion for hydraulic engineers

When I worked for the University doing water quality research we used the same meters that most municipalities use. We regularly checked these meters for accuracy. We always found that because of wear to the internal parts of the meter that it was always the case that there was more flow than was being recorded. This means that because of the wear the advantage would always be to the consumer. These meters are what they call PD meters or "positive displacement" meters. Some use a piston and some use a nutating disk.Clicky

RE: F250 with 3.55:1 rear?

2011 F250 diesel had 3.55 with 20" wheels or optional on others. All others had 3.31. So 3.55 is the best available for pulling power. I have a 2011 F-250 6.7 with 3.55 gears. I have absolutely no issue pulling my unit it overdrive. If I keep my speed to 60 mph I can run an average of 11.5 to 12 mpg. Effortlessly. Simply an amazing truck.

RE: 1/2 ton trucks?

I do have a real truck, in my signature. Today I traded my minivan for a Ram 1500 Sport. Maybe not even a real half ton with the lower payload. I loved the room in the Town and Country. I was well satisfied with the mileage. Nice engine. Not bad to drive. The road noise level I didn't like. Towing my little 4'x6' enclosed trailer in a head wind gave me 13 mpg. This half ton grocery getter is great to drive. Quiet and smooth. Lots of power though lower mpg. Will probably get better mileage towing the enclosed trailer. This wouldn't be the first time I replaced an auto with a pickup as my daily driver and grocery getter.

RE: A man was eating in a truck stop

Several years ago a few bikers showed up at a local bar. Started to give a local fellow a bad time and a brawl was about to begin. He said " As long as there are so many of you do you mind if I go get my friend?". Of course they told him to go get him. You should have seen the place clear out when he showed up with his friend. He happened to cut down trees for a living and his friend was his trusty chain saw.

RE: Customer Service

On the same note. I purchased a different home 3 years ago. The sun room has vinyl windows manufactured by Parco that were installed around 2000. One of the panes broke and I contacted them to find a dealer so I could get it fixed. Even though I was not the original purchaser they said they would fix it and sent a representative from Wisconsin to replace the window. At some point in the near future I'm going to replace the windows in the rest of the house. Guess who I'm going to call first.

RE: question about DEF fluid

Def definitely has a shelf life. It will crystallize at some point. It will plug the filter in the DEF tank. Don't ask me how I know.

RE: A ***** about the us postal service or lack of

When it had been 7 days and the priority mail(to Gen Del) had not arrived,I went back home and got the tracking number,supplied by our mail forwarding service.It showed that the mail had been delivered to the PO 3 days ago. brought that fact to their attention. The look on the clerks face,priceless! They "found" the "lost" mail right away. Notified home post office to hold my mailbefore returning from Texas this spring. I arrived home on Friday. Went to PO on Saturday to pick up mail. I was expecting two packages, one medication. Figured I should get them Monday at the latest. Didn't get delivered Monday or Tuesday. I went to post office to inquire why it was taking so long to travel 150 miles. Gave them my tracking number. Guess what? Both packages were sitting on a shelf and had arrived at the PO the day before I returned home. Maybe it is just the local PO but I cringe every time a package gets shipped by mail.

RE: DirecTv Prices Soaring

DirecTV today agreed to be bought by AT&T for $95/share. Could take a year or so to get Fed. approval. That should happen about the time my contract is up. I have never dealt with worse customer service than AT&T has. I will live with over the air before I'll deal with them.

RE: weekend plans

It's been to darn cold and wet here to go camping. I would love to go this weekend but I have to start preparing for surgery Sunday morning. I hope to be recovered enough to go the week after Memorial Day then the next week prepare for another round of surgery. I did sanitize the water tank today and check the tire pressure.

RE: Lawn mower

I know the Toro zero turn we bought at HD is the same as the one at the dealers. Have ordered parts online and from dealers, no problems. I have heard that JD tractors at the big box stores aren't the same as the ones at the dealers. Yes and no. Some dealers sell those models too to meet a price point. They may be made with lighter frames, etc but are produced in the same factory operated by John Deere. I read a article recently about who makes what lawn mowers. Amazing how many brands are made by the same manufacturer. MTD builds a lot of major brands of mowers. Most of Sears junk is made by them.

RE: 2012 Ford 6.7L DEF & Regen Questions

Whatever you do make sure that you keep your DEF levels to the point that you can keep fresh fluid in the tank. Just had a problem with mine. Indications were that the DEF pump was faulty. That wasn't the case. The DEF in the tank had crystallized and plugged the filter in the bottom of the tank. There is a shelf life. This creates a problem for me because the gauge always shows that the tank is less than half full. Dealers suggestion was to run it till you got the message that you had x miles before refill. Creates a real pain. If you buy ahead too far it will crystallize and if you are on a trip and you need it in the next 100 miles and there is no place to get it for 200 miles. I don't know if I will run into that problem but it is something to think about. I love the truck and it is a towing beast but I may just bite the bullet and buy something that doesn't use DEF.
