RE: RV on anniversaries?

It was 43 years for us on April 14. We didn't do anything. DW wants to do a trip down the east coast. I don't know where to start the planning nor am I sure I want to drag the 5th wheel that far. I wouldn't mind just taking off and playing by ear and just go to where ever it looks interesting. We are retired and can afford a month on the road. I love Hawaii but it probably hasn't changed that much since our 35th when we renewed our wedding vows on a beach there. I like cruises too as long as I don't have to spend more than a couple of days at sea at a time. It'sher call. I'll do about anything she wants.

RE: One year update on my 6.4L Hemi

I just traded my F250 diesel for a 6.4 Ram. Haven,t installed the hitch yet so I don't know how it will tow. I'm confident that it will do well. I didn't put enough miles on the diesel to justify keeping it. Just turned 500 miles on it today. I was also running into problem keeping the DEF fresh. It crystallized on me last fall. It is loaded with sod right now but hope to get that down tomorrow and the hitch in Wednesday.

RE: Lawn vine

I've had good results using Dicamba on creeping charlie or field ivy. Dicamba is a ingredient found in weed be gone, trimec and other broadleaf herbicides. The secret is to get it sick and keep it sick with timely applications of the herbicide containing Dicamba. When I was with Iowa State University there was talk of using Borax but I never saw documented research to back that theory up.

RE: Bald Eagles

Decorah, Ia webcam They moved the nest a couple of years ago. An eagle was killed last year when it flew into a power line. Lots of eagles in Decorah and further east along the Mississippi River.

RE: Food at Potlucks- Am I the only one?

I think some of the commenters may be missing an important point. All those who wrote about surviving without seat belts, helmets, washed hands, drinking out of hoses, etc. are all survivors. By definition, survivors get to write forum comments -- Non-survivors don't. Yes, you survived those risks, but there are still some risks associated with those behaviors. That's why we've changed as society. Granted, it's very debatable and I'd suggest that we have gone too far in terms of precautions (taking off our shoes at the airport, for example) but that doesn't mean that there is no risk. We need to hear from all the people who died from eating at the pot luck. Where are those people? Come on folks. If you ate at a potluck and died, we'd like to hear from you. I'll wait. (Hears sound of crickets) I guess it's safe then. ;-) The last time I ate at a potluck I got so sick that I was wishing I would die. First potluck of the season at our park in Texas two years ago. All it takes is a mouth full of something bad to make you sick. No Thanks. I haven't attended another. I don't eat out much either.

RE: For those that resist giving up their flip phone...

Wife talked me into getting a i phone. I'm at the point of buying out of my contract and selling the i phones for what I can get out of them. I just don't get my money worth. I don't do anything with a i phone that I couldn't do with a trac phone. I guess I don't think that I need to be that connected.

RE: Making a Doctor Appt. at the VA

I also am rated at 100%. I maintain a medicare supplement. I do use the VA for some things like hearing aids, eyeglasses, yearly physicals and prescriptions. I do use the VA for primary medical care. When I do need more I request that I be sent to public Drs. and hospitals for care. I feel this opens the system a little for those that really need the assistance and maybe can't afford it. I can.

RE: Happy Thanksgiving to Veterans

Forty seven years ago this week I was at Duc Pho, Vietnam. Our job was combat salvage and we were trying to get a stranded LST off the beach. Had her off by December 1St. Towed her to Danang to patch her up a little before towing her to Subic Bay. We did get a Thanksgiving meal tough we ate in shifts.

RE: Ford announces 2015 F150 Harley Davidson edition

Everyone does realize that there is no 2015 Harley Edition f150 right. Even if there was I'm sure it would not have the 2.7. Probably have the 6.2 in it if they did it. Every Harley owner should have at least one vehicle that will go fast.

RE: Cherokee NC & Smokey Mtns Adventure (Pics)

We were in Cherokee the 21st or 22nd of October. We watched the elk behind the visitor center for quite some time. Lots of deer and Momma bear and triplets. Traffic was horrendous that week.

RE: Weather is saying get going!

I've wanted to head south mid to late October for 5 years. The wife told me last week we would negotiate when we leave. She told a relative today that we would be heading south mid-October next year. I guess we won't have to negotiate now.

RE: Woman’s Sign Brings Garth Brooks Concert to a Halt

She was born and raised in my little town of 6500 people. When she was younger she was a waitress in a local restaurant. She moved to Osage Iowa after she married. I've never actually met her.

RE: Veterans Day.

I went to a Veterans program at the high school today wearing my uniform. One of the teachers sat me down with several students to share my experiences and tell them why it was important to do what I did. They were curious. I'll bet a vet would be able to spend hours answering questions.

RE: For all the Veterans and Active Duty Military

I will take advantage of free breakfast at the local grocery deli. I usually don't participate. I may wear my uniform if I can still get it on. It still fit Memorial Day. I try to wear it at lest twice a year.

In the Navy we had another form of SOS. Ground beef in a tomato based sauce. Wasn't too bad though I prefer chipped beef. I have some dried beef from a local butcher. Genuine dried beef.

RE: Snowblowers - is bigger better?

I worked a 5hp 24" Areins to death. It took me 24 years though. Auger gearbox finally gave out. After 24 years no replacement parts. After that record I bought a new Areins. This one is 28" and who knows how many horse. Says 11.5 lbs. of torque. Top of the line Areins have a steel spout which I think works much better than the plastic spouts. I found that it throws snow pretty good but is so much bigger that it is harder to handle. If I'm lucky I don't have to use it before I go to Texas after Christmas. I did use it on wet heavy snow 2 years ago in May after I returned home. The neighbor got his MTD out and made one round in his drive and gave up. I got mine out and cleaned everyone on the block out. It was the first time had used it and it was 3 years old. Just personal preference but I firmly believe that you get what you pay for. I paid less than $1000 for it.

RE: The Cold

Twenty one here this morning. I have yet to convince the wife that we should leave for Texas late October instead of waiting till after Christmas.

RE: DEF addative

keep in mind that DEF has a shelf life. Varies with temperature. Usually about a year. It will crystallize. Ask me how I know. I didn't tow enough last year to empty the def tank. Luckily it was covered by my dealer. Tank was removed and about a cup of crystals was in it. Don't buy too far ahead.

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.
