RE: Knives

Our 5er came with a flat wood panel along the rear of the stove that had slots in it for our knives. Works just fine. I was told it's a vent for the stove, not for knives (?)

RE: Leaves are chaning and falling

July/Aug are normally hot and dry here. Had 2" rain around July 4 and so far in Aug we've gotten over 8" of rain. Crops look amazing.

RE: pets anyone ?

We take care of the kids dogs and grandkids dogs when asked. Glad to do it for them, but even more glad when they pick them up. Ties us down too much.

RE: RFID sleeves (protection for credit cards)

RFID protection might be needed if the chipped cards were also RFID, but the three I've received so far have not been RFID. The card companies have not yet been making PINs mandatory for credit, but I get PINs assigned fo the cards I use in Europe, because chip or RFID, the PIN is mandatory in much of the Euro zone. Thank you. You gave me the answer.

RFID sleeves (protection for credit cards)

Our new "chip/pin" credit cards aren't coming for several months, or so I'm told but we're taking a trip soon. Have you any experience or knowledge of RFID sleeves to keep the cc numbers safe(r) ?

RE: Down sized

Try this: push mattress away from head of bed. Lay a body pillow in the cavity then put your bed pillows on top of that. In the daytime, remove body pillow and push mattress back to head of bed. Body pillow can be used as a toss pillow on your bed.

A family came in and used the picnic facilities for a birthday party. When they left, they threw the left over CAKE into the fire pit. Seriously ?? I wanted to drag them back and rub their noses in it.
hokeypokey 08/15/15 08:57pm General RVing Issues

I do pulled pork pretty much the same as posted above by isitfriday. Usually smoke for the first six or seven hours using apple or pecan, then foil until internal temp is 200 degrees. Wrap in old towels and put in a cooler for an hour or so and then pull. Throw a finishing sauce on the pulled meat plus put the drippings back in (minus the fat) and serve up with BBQ sauce on the side. Vacuum seal left overs and toss in the freezer until later. My question, though, is where is the sale at??? All can find around here is around $1.79/lb. Last week it was 88 cents/lb here.

RE: Email in your passport

I lost car keys once in my life and tore everything apart looking for them. I picked up my purse and thought I detected a jingle of keys. Turns out I had a rip in the purse lining and they slipped through a very small hole. I guard those kind of things carefully and I would be frantic if my passport was missing.

RE: One Year

Back in the early 70's, my FIL gave his daughter (my DH's sister) $100 to quit smoking. Would he give his son (my DH) the same for NOT starting ??? $100 would have been a big help to this young couple. (and by the way, the daughter never quit - she's still smoking)

RE: Sturgis Rally traffic

Not for me. Crowds like that. I wonder how many Sturgis attendees are sleeping out under the stars. I can't imagine there would be enough accommodations or eating places for everyone. I have been to South Dakota. The Black Hills area, Sturgis are great areas. But I wonder how many of the permanent residents of this area are coping ? Yeh, money to be made for some. I know people who get out of town and rent their entire houses to crews of vendors (Ford Motor, etc). The renters only sleep and shower there and the company pays big bucks out for the accomodations.

RE: Suggestions for long trip

I boil eggs to have to eat in a rush, mix in tuna salad, make egg salad, top salad. I start saving leftovers, early in the spring. I use 8x8 foil pans that I line with parchment then add the food. I find these stack nicely in the freezer for storage, but have the added convenience of either baking in the foil pan, if I have time, or lifting out the meal in the parchment and microwaving it. The foil containers are wrapped in foil and then stored in gallon plastic freezer bags. The foil is available to be used again, for things like hobo meals. You can always find a use for the plastic bags along the way. I usually have hard boiled eggs, cold cooked potatoes and cold cooked rice in the refrigerator, then we'll always have something to eat. I tell the grandchildren the same thing as they leave home.

RE: Suggestions for long trip

I've compiled menu ideas & simple camping recipes on cards and slipped them in an old photo album. I've highlighted the ingredients so I can quickly scan over it to see if I need to add anything to my grocery store list.

RE: Lowes AND Home Depot-horrible quality

We have absolutely no problems with quality in our local Lowes and HD stores. However we winter in Texas and find quality issues in each and every Lowes and HD stores there. I believe it all boils down to the quality of management and help in the stores in that area. I agree with this one - mostly. Some stores have better quality than others. Could be management or company buyers getting deals. We always look at the exact items first - if it looks like what we want, and the quality's there - we buy it. Otherwise, we check other local retailers. Sometimes, HD & Lowes gets good deals on close outs or other buys - so the customers get that benefit. Sometimes, it gets ratty looking stuff, and it shows soon as you look at it. We just put carpet in two bedrooms ... Lowes / HD was a couple hundred bucks less, but the quality was lacking - so we paid a bit more, and got better carpet -- then, the installer ripped out the old carpet and pad, and disposed of it. Then installed new carpet and pad -- HD / Lowes has an additional fee to rip it out and dispose ... so it probably works out closer to same price at the end. AND, we got nicer carpet and an excellent installer. One extra note on floors. HD and Lowe's charge a fee to measure, and take it off if you buy from the store. The measure guy they sent out was definitely NOT very good with a tape - I had to correct his measurements several times (I measured it myself before he ever arrived) and he was off with the carpet sf as well, by a LOT - almost a hundred square feet first time. (and yes, I understand the overage on carpet width, and allowed for it) So, if you ever get a floor measured, make sure you somehow double check the material sizes - if these guys order too much, you pay for it and may never even know it. The just take the extra yards and sell it again for a repair or small room (closet or entry) ... so watch your wallets on these dimensions. Carpet salesmen will ALWAYS price the customer the exact same yardage of carpet and pad. Yes, you might need extra carpet yardage to match a pattern, etc. but the pad does NOT need to be matched. I corrected the salesman and he reduced the pad yardage for savings to my pocket.

RE: Lowes AND Home Depot-horrible quality

We bought our permanent deck materials at a small lumberyard instead of the 3 big box chains in town. We paid more, but it's not going to fade like the cheaper kind from them. We also got excellent customer service. Our new 6 panel doors also came from a small lumber supplier. We compared quality and they were far better. Big box is ok for some things, but lacks quality in a lot of items. Also, big box is having a % rebate on ALL items right now. Ha. They jumped the price on stuff we bought before the promotion, so no gain to us with a % rebate.
