RE: remote camera for entry door

Seriously. Looking out an adjacent window wouldn't work?

RE: pets anyone ?

Do what you think is best and the rest will work itself out. Yes, please do what is best. For the animal, not you!

RE: pets anyone ?

Here's the deal from our POV. DW and I have had dogs and cats nearly throughout our entire lives. When we went fulltime 15 years ago, it was with 3 cats who were acquired via the Humane Society. One was 1 y/o when she came to us, the other 2 as kittens 6-8 weeks old. All a bit older when we "left home". One died at age 10 and the other 2 last year at ages 17 and 18. All of them were FT troupers. They didn't know that a rolling home wasn't just the way it was supposed to be. They are sorely missed. I'm misty as I type this. BUT: We decided not to have any more pets because we believe that at this point it would be more selfish by us and less beneficial to them. We are 64 and 60 respectively and have no family with whom we would entrust the care of them at the inevitable event of our demise. We simply believe that it is irresponsible to acquire a pet who is likely to outlive you.

RE: Are dashboard video cameras legal??

By "extraordinary equipment," I mean that you can't use a monster telephoto lens to peer into somebody's living room from 2 miles away Well poop. There goes yet another form of amusement! :B

RE: One Year

I'm in my late 60's now and I tried smoking once, when I was around 17. Unfortunately my experience did not mirror yours. I too tried smoking once 57 years ago. I smoked one of my father's Kents when I was 7. Yes, that's seven, not 17. Even then I liked the flavor, the aroma, the sensation, the entire deal. His death at his age 37 from heart disease that same year did not dissuade me from taking up serious smoking at age 14 and continuing the habit for the next 40. And it wasn't a "proving something" situation. Although I'm certainly mistaken, I thought that no one knew I smoked until my late teens/early 20's. I was a "private smoker".

RE: One Year

I quit about 38 years ago, but I have found other pleasures. However, there are certain times when I still want one. I find it interesting that I recall what I was doing when I had my last cigarette. MY DW who quit many years earlier (although after far fewer years than I) still says she gets the urge once in a great while. Amazingly enough, even after all of that time as a smoker, I've never had the urge to light up again. And no, I can't recall the events surrounding my last one. I do recall that it was in an RV park in NM, smoked the last one from a pack and said to myself, "SELF, this is just plain stupid". I was correct! :B And to the OP, I've owned 13 bikes, 3 of them HD's and, as you well know, the Harley's are WAY more likely to kill you than the tobacco! Just say'in. :)

RE: One Year

10 years this past March for me after 40 years of that filthy habit. Congratulations!

RE: What's the average of 5 MPG and 10 MPG?

Actually, to be precise, we'd have to use calculus and take the derivative of a function at the time you are measuring the fuel consumption to determine the rate at which you are burning fuel. That function must take into account a lot of factors--wind vector, vehicle weight (which itself is continuously changing as fuel is burned), coefficient of friction between road and tires (which is also continuously changing based on road surface characteristics such as tire wear), road inclination or declination, moon location, as if it is overhead, it's gravity will slightly pull the coach up affecting the force of gravity from the earth pulling the coach down. The weight of Cheetos in the coach should not change the formula too much if they are eaten, except to the extent weight moves from the cabinet over the back wheels to the drivers' seat over the left front wheel. Physicists refer to the foregoing as Winnebago's equation. Cheers, Mike era70x.com You DO understand that the likelihood of more than 4 people here understanding what you just said is negligible, right? There is a significant remainder. They just won't get it, or they'll pretend that they do. YOU are funny!

RE: What's the average of 5 MPG and 10 MPG?

1,603.6 hours as a private pilot. Yes, if I ran out fuel up there it would be a problem, although not as insurmountable one as might be thought. The little guys that I fly can be landed virtually anywhere. Go ahead, ask me how I know that! :B Didn't run out of fuel, but I CAN tell you that a 172 ,properly controlled, will give you about 8 minutes to pick a landing spot with NO power. Bless her heart! Did not bruise a kernel in the adjacent corn field. Getting said aircraft out of that field (at their expense because they blessed MY heart for not wrecking THEIR airplane and not suing them (another issue) I netted from them 100 hours of flight time and that wasn't, (still isn't) chump change. I've used every dime of it. And again, your mileage might vary, but you will still need to fuel when you are out of it and you will pay the going rate, OR you will stop moving on down the road. Your MPG just doesn't matter!

RE: What's the average of 5 MPG and 10 MPG?

OK, sorry. I honestly thought that you people were joking. Apparently I was, unfortunately, wrong. Here's how we do it: 1) We pull into the fuel place. 2) We fill up the tank(s) with diesel. 3) We repeat that process when the tanks have been depleted. We would do the same things regardless of the price or the mileage between those events. So will you and seriously, the numbers don't matter!

RE: What's the average of 5 MPG and 10 MPG?

And NONE of you get the folly here.Oh, please enlighten us more benighted mortals. And while doing that, can we cover the difference between an average and a median? Or even a mean. Very unlikely. More benighted? :R

RE: Need a better fifth wheel fir full timing

Can you handle the truth? Do you want to hear the truth? I vaguely heard you say yessssss in the background, You, and particularly your wife, are not cut out for this experience. You and others have already outlined more issues than most committed couples do in a lifetime. And 99% of those were not confined to an RV (Doesn't matter how BIG that puppy is) After all of the time that we have spent out here, we answer the same questions ad infinitum. And the answers are always the same: 1) Would we do it again? Unequivocally YES 2) Do you have to be best friends first? Once again, a giant YEP!

RE: OK, What's the trick to reserving on Reserve America?

Here's a trick: don't try to book weekends.We typically go in on a Sunday and leave on a Wednesday or Thursday.I just reserved the site we wanted in a popular state park for the middle of August less than a month away by doing this. Even the most popular sites will have vacant spaces as long as you don't go on a weekend. Please stop spreading this nonsense! It's liable to catch on!

RE: Air conditioner struggling

We solve this problem readily. We have a 15K unit that gets used every 6 weeks for 30 minutes on advice of the folks who installed it and backup counsel elsewhere. Unless we experience inside temps above 90F, it never goes on. Can't remember the last time we used it because we were too hot. If it threatens those temps we simply move to higher ground :B At 71F we would be in jammies and blankets. Seriously!

RE: Any Regrets For Starting Extended Travel Early?

I'll kinda' sorta take my buddy above and say yes. We were with a combined income of less than 70K (remember that this was 1985) We live on an aggregate of 20K now and want for nothing Planning? Waiting for it all to come together? You might die tomorrow, and trust that the older you get, the more likely that is. I am always amused at the folks who have never contemplated their own demise. We are ALL going there! Live it or die thinking about it.

There are thousands upon thousands upon thousands of sites available on ANY date and whatever climate is your pleasure. Take your blinders off, stop bothering with that RA nonsense, and LOOK! Hint: it ain't here.

RE: $1,957,597,416 for one days work !

I invested in "stupid" many years ago. They have not disappointed me. And to this day I have never participated in a "social" medium, but OH BOY have I reaped the benefits! Keep on keeping on!
