RE: What To Do With the Sticks & Bricks

Your list covers everything I did last year, only issue was our local post office folks are pretty bad, took almost 2 weeks after the date I asked for mail forwarding before it actually took place. Good thing my son stopped by the house and picked it up every few days till it stopped. It was supposed to go to his house cross town. Going to start the forward 2 weeks before we leave this year, which reminds me, that's next week. Add: Changed all bills that can use autopay to autopay, stopped by the town hall and prepaid any bills from them that come in. Had the oil tanks filled. Put a bunch of cash in the checking for autopay. Local post office people have nothing to do with forwarding mail these days. it's completely out of their hands and handled by a forwarding office. Depending on management at Forwarding, they can be good . . . or horrible. All local PO ppl do is have you fill out a forwarding card, then turn it in to Forwarding, wherever that may be. We have good luck and no problems so we are fortunate.

RE: I can finally take a shower without dropping the soap

Great idea. Good for holding the bottles in place. I gave up using bar soap a few years ago due to the mess it can create after is sits in a soap dish or a damp hidey-hole in the shower. gooey soap, nasty. I take all soap wrappers off as soon as I get home. Keep it in a basket and it dries out. Lathers up exactly the same, but never gooey and soft. Been doing this for years with success.

RE: What do you do if you find money...?

I noticed about 200.00 cash (which was folded together) missing while at Target Customer Service counter. I had just come from a check out and I was positive it was in my purse there. I muttered it to the employee and said I'll be right back. Didn't see it on the floor at check out so returned to Customer Service to discover it dropped at CS and the next Customer picked it up and they were waiting for me. I was quite flustered, and this had never happened to me before so I thanked them both and left. Now when I think about it, I am embarrassed because I should've been thinking and given the finder 20.00

RE: Coffee

Now for bad coffee. Drug store chain in this area has coffee and donuts once a month for Sr Citizens. Coffee is made is 30 cup aluminum pot and it's HORRID. Cheap cake donuts must be a week old. They get a crowd, because it's free.

RE: Another oldie. Not mine

HERE Enjoyed looking. Visited family in Denmark 1989 and my husband and I slept in their similar camper in the driveway while we were there.

RE: What are you reading?

Found in Dad's things: All Hell Broke Loose by Wm H. Hull. It's about Armistice Day blizzard 1940. Looking out the window today, it's appropriate!

RE: Things for the new travel trailer

Get an electric blanket! They are marvelous in a camper! My advise to everyone who is getting a new camper and beginning to stock it.... don't forget the potato peeler. (really)! And the wine cork screw! We have electric mattress cover. Like it, but can't compare to elec blanket because we've never had one.

RE: Jury Duty ?

OP here. No way am I ignoring it. I have copy of my January deposit ready and will work with them, so I hope they can work with me. Thank you for all replies. Clerk didn't hesitate a second when I told her we are Snowbirds. Immediately gave me a written excuse and wished us a great winter. Security staff was more than cordial as we passed through the scan machine. My worry was for nothing!

RE: Coffee

Tried many. We are on Maxwell House kick now. After a while our taste buds will need a change.

Jury Duty ?

What happens if I'm poised & ready for a 8 month long RV trip, then get a notice from Clerk of Courts that I've been "selected" to serve 1 month of Jury Duty during the absence ???? My notice came yesterday, Court House is closed for Veterans Day, so need to talk to the Baliff on Monday. That was bad timing !!

RE: Wish List to design better RVs

Those awful dead spaces ! We've opened up numerous dead spaces in our RV and made useable spaces. Door under the TV was awkward, since it opened the wrong direction. DH corrected it and now swings the other way. A dab of wood putty filled the screw holes.

RE: Weather Station

We love ours too. It has a picture of a man who wears hats, mittens, coat for cold weather and sunglasses, shorts for warm weather so it's pretty entertaining. We tried to get the same thing for the RV but not available so we had to settle for just temps, pressure. Works fine, however.

To camp or not camp at WMart ?

Big story in the paper today about 4 Walmart in our area. 2 allow overnights, 2 do not. It was discussed by City Fathers when building permits were issued, but no action so now they have a dilemma. Wish they would report exactly where overnighters should go if outlawed.

RE: Thanksgiving potluck ideas?

Maybe not for Thanksgiving, but one family always brings crockpot of hot dogs, buns and condiments to Annual Block Party. Always a winner.

RE: Keystone Outback Rear Slide Out

Don't have rear slide, but heated mattress pads are great. Warm from under.

RE: Two Travel Trailers one large one very small?

Wish we had kept our Aliner just for trips when we move a lot. No place to store it but I miss the portability vs our Coachman.
