RE: Perking coffee -- how long?

Kroger sells "Wrap Coffee Filters" like Johnson said. Much like standard filters but thinner. Today, most people use drip machines so coffee companies sell their product ground fine. It will stop up the holes in most perk baskets. I make coffee for 2 rv rallies per year and average 250 cups per morning. I always use filters in my four 30 cup electric perks.

RE: Fixing to order new tires. Maxxis 8008 or GY G26?

The only Goodyear I would consider is the HMG 2020. I understand it's made for U-Haul but some online companies will sell to anyone. HMG 2020

RE: Best Lightweight TT for '07 4Runner?

Check into the molded fiberglass trailers like those made by Casita, Escape, and Scamp. Some military bases rent these thru the MWR centers. I know that Lackland AFB rents 17' Casitas. fiberglass rv

RE: Effigy Mounds in Iowa?

2X Pikes Peak State Park. Even if you don't stay there, you should drive up to see the view of the river.

RE: Oliver Travel Trailers?

I've been in several at fiberglass trailer rallies. They are the best small trailer on the market (IMHO) and their prices reflect the quality. My only complaints are they are narrow (less space inside) and too bright inside with lots of white fiberglass and mirrored cabinet fronts. I can't afford one anyway. There is an owners forum linked below. Oliver forum

RE: Kid friendly park with lots to do near Dallas, TX

The Vineyards is very nice, though I've not been there since it was closed by flooding last spring. Be aware the NASCAR is running at Texas Motor Speedway April 7, 2016. Not very far up the road and I'm sure the Vineyards gets booked solid.

RE: Another Navy SOS recipe

Gary, your recipe sounds good. I never cook for enough people now to try it though. For those who remember Army SOS, here is a link to the best small recipe I've found on line. My time in the Army spans from 1968 to 2005(with a 14 year break in service). The last 18 years was as a Mess Sgt at the company, battalion, and brigade levels. I retired as an E-8. I've made SOS for 360 soldiers many mornings. Army SOS recipe

RE: I have a problem with hard boiled eggs........

As Wishbone51 said, the answer to easy to peel eggs is steaming. I will never again boil an egg. Makes no difference if the eggs are old or new. Works every time.

RE: Has anyone got rear ended while on the highway?

12 years ago I was towing a rental 16' Casita on I635 (loop around Dallas) and exiting onto I30 eastbound. Due to construction on I30, traffic was stopped on the ramp and backed up into the right lane. We were waiting to move forward when all hell broke loose. The trailer was hit by a heavy duty pickup towing a trenching machine on a flat bed. The truck belonged to a lawn irrigation company and had a rack on top full of 1" x 16' PVC pipe. The impact pushed the trailer tongue through the trunk of our tow vehicle till it touched the back seat. The rear window shattered and spears of PVC shot over our car and covered the highway in front of us. The Mesquite cop said the trailer may have saved us by deflecting the pipe over us. We were not hurt. The Casita was totaled by its owner, the US Navy. Our car required $12,000 to fix. Luck was with us. :)
