RE: So who will be first with an electric pickup. And when.

Someday cars will pull the electricity out of the pavement. Much like cell phones on a surface charger. No plugs. They can go for days, and batteries for the back roads. 1000 hp motors and 100%torque at no rpm. It will be amazing, I hope to see it. That "Someday" will cost TRILLIONS of dollars to tear up, install the mechanicals for charging and re-pave the 2,678,000 miles of paved roadways in the USA. ;)

RE: So who will be first with an electric pickup. And when.

When: They can tow 20K lbs, with a minimum of 400 miles between charges....and you can re-charge in 15 minutes or less! :) I agree! 10 minutes to fill gas tank. 121,446 gas stations in USA now per the Gas Station Industry Statistics. Them thar poor dinosaurs died for us. The least we can do to honor them is to harvest what they left for us.

RE: $1 difference between gas and diesel, WHY ??

The best I can remember, when diesel was $4.00 a gallon, wasn't oil something like $110 a gallon? Now oil is around $60 a gallon and diesel is around $3.75 here in central CA. Can someone explain this to me? Nearly 1/2 of what a barrel use to cost, yet the price of diesel is nearing the highest ever prices. Another weird thing is, a few months ago, diesel and gas (again here in central CA) were the same.........now gas is a $1.00 cheaper the diesel at the major truck stops. What gives?? $110 a gallon? $60 a gallon?

RE: VIDEO ADDED: Baby It's Cold Outside!

It's so cold here in Massachusetts that a politician from the State House was seen walking with his hands in his own pockets!

RE: East Coast home base(s) question.

For the Boston area, either Normandy Farms in Foxboro or Minuteman park in Littleton. Both close to the interstate road system and public transportation to Boston. If you can do no hookups, Wampatuck in Hingham. Commuter boat to downtown Boston. On Cape Cod, Atlantic Oaks in Eastham seems to be the go to place for vacationing RVers. Close to the beach and right on the bike trail. Wompatuck State Park DOES have elecric hookups, but only a central dump station and sporadic water faucets. Free spring fed water shed, delicious water!

RE: One Night of Freezing Temps...

Might be OK if there is no wind. A wind will cool to OAT faster. Personally, I do not play with fire or ice. JMO Actually, wind chill has no effect on the speed water freezes. That's dependent on temperature alone. Wind chill affects humans and animals only.

RE: FOUR Corners Monument

It's amazing. The OP asked if there was adequate parking for his rig, that's all he asked! He got his answer, and then the usual unasked-for-opinions, such as ... Why go there? Tourist trap. Too far out of the way. Too commercialized. Etc. Etc.

RE: FOUR Corners Monument

It's a bucket list thing! See the monument (take pic if you want), eat some fry bread, buy the wife a trinket. Now you've been there! Now that's a positive outlook. Very good.

RE: What you do with pet abandon at CG ?

"Honey, I'm going to let the cat out here in the campground so he can get some exercise and run all over other people's cars and property." "OK, baby. Make sure you don't bat an eye when someone complains that the cat scratched their car!!!" "Of course not, honey!!!" http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2012/01/24/article-0-116D394C000005DC-329_634x451.jpg "Here, kitty'kitty'kitty!!!" :B That pic is taken from a video that shows that particular cat next to a beached boat with tourists watching. They laughed when the cat clawed at the gator's nose and slid back into the water.

RE: Boston questions.

Greetings.. Holiday Inn Select at 5 Blossom St. is close to conveniences. Mass Transit, Freedom Trail, Faneuil Hall Market Place, Boston Common, etc.,etc.,etc. Enjoy Our Town. It's a great walking city. :) Ray...the Holiday Inn is now a Wyndam property and as much as we'd love to stay there, it's a tad on the pricey side. However...could you please offer some insights to the areas? Ashmont Hill section of Dorchester or the Polish Triangle or Jamaica Plain or Back Bay? I am not asking about what's to see in each..but if you were choosing one for walking and hagning out in? Thank you. Gary Hi Gary, The hotel name change was a surprise to me...sorry. The sites you asked me about are so-so. That's why I recommend the following jewels instead. :) Hang out at the Boston Public Gardens and ride the Swan Boats. Cross the first suspension bridge in the nation, a 150-foot(+/-) walking bridge over the pond where the Swan Boats sail. Bring peanuts to hand-feed the many squirrels. Then across the road to the Boston Common. Visitors Center is located there. Shoot over to Cambridge via MBTA subway train and get off at Harvard Square Station. Walk to the Cambridge Common and stand at the spot where General George Washington took command of our fledgling Continental Army. Of course visit Harvard Yards too. Just off Harvard Square itself. The Square itself is a microcosm of humanity from around the world associated with some neat ethnic eateries! Have a great visit and have good walking footwear. Regards PS: Bring a camera! PPS: A local quirky not usually known except to history buffs like myself follows. Around 1900 or thereabouts it was decided to clean the tombstones at the Old Granary Burial Grounds. The tombstones were gathered up and placed against the fences and pressure washed by hand-pump hoses and scrubbed down nice and purty. When they were done this cleaning I can see in my mind the words of the workmen when it was time to place them back where they belong. "Okay men, let's put these stones back where they belong." A moment's pause and "UH-OH." Soooooooo...The only graves where the person buried matched the tombstone are the immovable ones, statues,obelisks and the like. The Old Granary Burial Ground near the Boston Common

RE: Anybody Replace Their Stock Horn ?

My horn fantasy is to have a steam-driven ship's horn! :B However, I assume such a thing doesn't exist for rv's, yet! Now that I've posted this, wanna bet some ingenious redneck will say, "Great idea. I can do that!". AND HE WILL! Gotta love it. And I want to hear it, LOL.
