RE: Senior Moments

Not quite a senior but close at 61. And just what would you consider being a "senior" ? I'm 63 and have considered my self a "senior" since I started getting the 55+ discounts. Sitting around till late having a few drinks we called it a night. Those few drinks might be a major part of the problem!

RE: Water Faucets at campgrounds

I still don't understand why people don't get that it's a protected potable water source. It's why third world countries have the troubles they do. And you sir, need to understand how privileged you are.

RE: Getting around the Campground

I walk a minimum of 5 miles/day. Don't need no wheels. 63, 5'11", 160. Seems to work for me.

RE: Water Faucets at campgrounds

Given the vagaries of life, I hold no less 5 degrees from thoroughly accredited institutions (none of them mail order):). One of those is in biochemistry. My pursuant remarks are based upon that knowledge with the understanding that a few here will not get it. (2nd of the remaining 4 degrees was Psychology...largely useless except in contexts such as these wherein everyone of a particular mindset will continue to argue without facts.) Household bleach averages between 3-6% sodium hypochlorite by volume. In terms of maximum efficacy a mixture 1:3 is optimal. Spraying it on full strength is actually counterproductive. Herein lies the rub> NO bleach solution will be even minimally effective before 5 minutes and only fully effective (given the limitations of chlorine) at about 15 minutes. Bottom line? If'n it makes you feel better to get out your little spray bottle and squirt away, go for it. You are accomplishing nothing. To the naysayers who care to look, there is copious supportive literature both online and off.

RE: full timing & mail

Or, you can do as we have for our past 13 years fulltime. Ask a friend or a relative to allow you to use their address as yours. It's a legal address of record (never a question asked). We provide our friend a supply of prepaid priority envelopes {conveniently sent without charge by the PO) and roughly once a month we speak with him and weed out the garbage (70% of it) and he sends on the rest. In the interim, he will alert us to anything that seems important (such as the Publishers Clearing House notification that we've won the 77 gazzilion dollars!). We send him a lovely X-mas present. Seriously, it's a win-win-win. We get our mail when and where we want it. We don't pay for unwanted **** and pay no monthly fees for the privilege. We keep in touch with an old friend. What's not to like?

RE: Water Faucets at campgrounds

its a very scary and dangerous world out there... 1000 different ways to die or be horribly maimed, even by a simple water faucetSo True. And the government is obviously covering it up. I googled "Deaths caused by poisoned campground water supply" and it came up without a single case. The only possible explanation is the Trilateral commission and the Koch Brothers have sanitized the internet. Thankfully all is well inside the bunker, but I have ordered another dozen rolls of tinfoil to make some more microwave defeating hats in case I have to take up arms against my oppressors. I like your style!

RE: Anybody flush their black tank with a hose onto the ground?

I try to be clean, washing after the restroom and before cooking, but I am far from anal about it. Now THAT'S funny!

RE: maybe a dumb question

I am 54 now, and often pass for a decade younger. Only in your own mind, dude. 63 and in great shape (5'11" 160). and trust me, you are the only one that doesn't notice the difference. Live your life, forget about what others think

RE: Pam cooking spray

Forget the vegetable spray, you'll attract more dirt than anything. The magic answer for bug removal is wet dryer sheets. You will be amazed.

RE: Cigarettes are driving me crazy.

I smoked a couple packs a day for 15 years and quit cold turkey. It was easy for me as I couldn't stand it. Now losing weight that is something that seems impossible to do for me. It's the same thing. You gave up nicotine (one of the most powerfully addictive substances on the planet), you can give up the edible garbage as well. Ask yourself, you said that you couldn't stand smoking anymore, can you stand looking at your bloated body? I'm 63, 5'11" and weigh 160. Does this come naturally? Hardly. If I ate what I want, when I want I'd top 300 in a few months. We both beat nicotine, you can beat the fat.

RE: A ***** about the us postal service or lack of

Well I for one have had many many many issues with USPS...some examples: 1...2005..In AZ for the winter...had mail forwarded...after 3 months we quit getting mail..called the post office...they said they were still forwarding...Well when we got home couple of months later...My neighbor came over with a large basket full of mail that they had been delivering to OUR HOUSE instead of forwarding..complained to head man.. 2...this past year we were in Az. again for 6 months...My golf magazines were not forwarded...they USPS said it was the magazines issue...not theirs...Mag...says it is a post office issue 3...I ordered some glasses last summer as well as things off ebay...not one that was mailed to my via USPS made it without getting lost... 4...We mailed Christmas packages from Phoenix...allowed 3 weeks proior for delivery. They made it the first of February... 5...cancelled forwarding and put a hold on mail for 30 days...got home and all mail crammed in box, plus neighbor again had some.. I have a tendency to thing a lot of the people are Id**ts in our local post office...When I was managing plants I would have fired someone as incompetent as they appear to be...:S OH HORRORS! RUN, do not walk away from the USPS! Get away while you can! Never use them again. Let us know when you find something better.

RE: A ***** about the us postal service or lack of

My business ships dozens of packages daily for the last 17 years. Here is my ratings of the most reliable for being damage free with #1 being the best: 1 USPS 2 UPS 3 FedEx Here are my ratings for on time delivery: 1 UPS 2 USPS 3 FedEx Value for the cost & overall service: 1 USPS 2 UPS 3 FedEx In the last 2 months I have had vendors that insist on FedEx and we have had over $5000.00 in damage claims which FedEx takes on average of 3 months to pay if ever. The few time that we have had UPS damage claims they pay in 4-5 weeks. We have never had a USPS damage claim. Very interesting. Of course your 17 years of experience means nothing when compared to say one guy, who had a problem with a package 2 years ago. :B Spot on! LOL

RE: Post deleted?

Royl: I believe you and understand your position by virtue of many years fulltiming and workamping. Stick with your guns and stop responding to the folks here that don't have a clue. The only thing responding to them will get you is callouses on your fingers. Don't stoop so low.

Good for you. Hope you have Beeno on board!

RE: A ***** about the us postal service or lack of

Many people just love to badmouth the PO. As with any other entity, there will be glitches. We have been fulltime fulltimers for 13 years. We have our mail forwarded by a friend via priority about once a month. In all of that time we've only had a problem with delayed delivery ONCE. That's once out of roughly 156 transactions. Purty good track record that few businesses can claim. And no, I have never been a USPS employee nor do I know one personally. Let's look at a factual scenario. Someone will come to your home in Florida, pick up a missive that you have addressed to someone in Washington state and hand deliver it to their mailbox within roughly 5 days (very frequently sooner). For that they want to charge you 49 freakin' cents! Outrageous!!

RE: Big Blunder, any suggestions?

If the appearance bothers you or DW, replace it. Stainless steel is the only way to go. The extra cost is well worth it in the long run.

RE: Spare tire OR NOT

There are chemicals in tires that are designed to prolong their life. Unfortunately, those chemicals are only distributed by the use of the tire. A spare that has been sitting unused for 12 years is virtually useless. Not my opinion: look it up.

RE: Cigarettes are driving me crazy.

I quit 8 years ago after 40 years. The price of cigarettes alone is enough to deter me from ever lighting up again.

RE: Spare tire OR NOT

It can work but puts you at the mercy of forces beyond your control. You mean like life in general? We are fulltime fulltimers starting our 14th year and have accumulated over 175K miles. Always keep tires for only 5 years, including the spare and keep them maintained. ONE blowout in all that time (due to a puncture), and we've traveled from Alaska to Central America. And yes, I was happy to let someone else change that tire roadside using a properly fitted and maintained spare. If'n we have to wait a few hours for that to happen, what the heck, we have a fully self contained RV to sit in while we wait. DUH!
