RE: Tailgaters

I will give you a brake check if you tailgate me. Now THERE'S a wonderful idea! And should they or their brakes fail?

RE: F250 w/ 12.5k FW

The bottom, bottom line here is that people will tow whatever they want with whatever they want, and no one or nuthin' ain't ever gonna' change their minds cuz' they've justified it. Can I tow a 13K vehicle with a 3/4 ton wahtchamacallit? Absolutely! On level ground I can TOW it with a golf cart. What seems to get lost in all of these threads/mindsets is whether, in extremis, I can STOP it!

RE: Where to leave trailer for a day while traveling

My point, you took all the time and effort to get there. Take the time to experience it. Bravo! Listen to this person. Sense is being made here!

RE: Tailgaters

We have a bumper sticker on both the 5'er and the truck: 55 SAVES FUEL And BTW, it does and we do. Measured several times. 13 mpg towing at 55 (diesel truck). Nearly 20% less at 65. Tailgate all you want. Won't effect anything but YOUR blood pressure.

RE: If I won the mega-millions lottery I would...

We have been fulltiming for nearly 14 years now. Have had 3 rigs and have downsized every time so as to better fit in the out-of-the way places we cherish. We sit atop what some might consider a pile of money, all there because I systematically tucked it away many years ago. No one ever gave me a dime. We live the way we wish and want for nothing. I have been talking with my wife while I'm typing this and honestly, we agree that we wouldn't change anything should a windfall happen. Not likely since we've never 'invested' in lottery tickets. :)

RE: Where to leave trailer for a day while traveling

Seriously, spring for the few bucks it will cost in a CG. It'll probably be 10% or less of what you'll spend in SF.

RE: Cell phone tracking

Every cell phone is capable of being tracked. Absolutely untrue. Use a basic without bells and whistles and you can only be "tracked" to your last call. In our case that might be a month and a few thousand miles ago.

RE: So, just how "hazardous" can a tank full of poo be?

He has a 250K motor home. What a WASTE Now THAT'S funny!

RE: Pink Anti-freeze

We're fulltimers, so our idea of antifreeze is moving south. However, reading some of the posts here has me wondering. If you go to the trouble of blowing the lines, why would you bother with antifreeze?

RE: P_C or Laptop

Have had the same Dell desktop with a 23" monitor for 12 of the 14 years we've been fulltiming and have run that puppy from Alaska to Central America and back again twice. Typing on it now. Still running XP. In the interim, we've had to replace 2 laptops (one a Compaq and the other an Asus. I'm a firm believer in not fixing something that ain't broke!

RE: Is it okay to drop my tip out beds at rest stops or Walmart?

This is the kind of "camper" who will ruin it for the rest. That is not a "camper", but I'm not allowed to say what it really is here in these forums.

RE: Any of regret going fulltime Rving

For us it was just simple math. In the past two winter seasons we have spend over $14,000 dollars in traveling and RV rent expenses to be in Florida for the winter. If we can purchase a pool home and lock in annual expenses of around $10,000 a year, then it is only costing us another $3,000 a year to own a home down here. So, you are no longer full time RV'ers. Nothing wrong with that except that you are now once again stuck in one place. The entire point of fulltiming for us this past 14 years has been FREEDOM. We can't imagine ever going to sit in another sticks and bricks ANYWHERE. Best of luck to you.

RE: Traveling With the Propane On

Hope you did not have any ice cream in your freezer! Otherwise, you would no longer have "Ice Cream" Do I "REALLY" need to describe what those Sunday Cones and pop-sicles look like when we reach our destination? Not to mention the mess on the bottom of the freezer compartment. Possibly one of the reasons that at 63, 5'11" and still weigh the same #158 I did in HS, we don't keep that sort of garbage in our freezer. So, absolutely no worries.

RE: Funny Story

Come on now, you really expect folks to believe this story? Present a few more facts and just maybe you have a real story. Who, what, when, how, why would be helpful. Lakeside Ya think? :)

RE: Traveling With the Propane On

40 degrees is considered the cut off where bacteria will grow more rapidly. Uh, by whom and to what relative degree. No pun intended.

RE: Traveling With the Propane On

14 years of fulltime traveling. The propane is always off while we're enroute. Just makes sense. We've done checks over 6 hours (a record day for us) with the ambient temps in the mid 80's and have seen the refrig temp rise from 38F to a whopping 41F. Yowzzaa! Keep the thing closed. You'll be fine. OR, run the reefer on propane and believe what you will anyway. Happy travels.

RE: States for Full Timing

Bottom line is that you should go where you want, when you want and establish domicile wherever it makes you comfy. We've been doing this FT thing for 14 years. If'n you are concerned about a few taxes, you likely aren't suited to this lifestyle. And to Dianne, couldn't agree with you more re: CA.

RE: Any of regret going fulltime Rving

My only regret will be that I will run out of years before I run out of wanting to know what's around the next curve or over the next hill. You and we will run out those years. Run them out well. Explore the next hill and curve. We're not getting out of this alive.

RE: Altitude sickness

14 years of fulltime traveling has seen us from sea level to 12K + a number of times. I'm a retired RN and hold degrees in biochemistry and physics. I know a couple of things :) Certainly, that 4K to 10K in a day can be a jolt to the system. It's all about taking it easy. Seriously. Acclimate. Slowly. The 1st day when you really, really want to take that hike 'cuz it's so purty? Don't do it! Relax. Do as little as possible. Sit in a chair and just breathe. Deeply. Drink more fluids (plain water is best) than you think likely. 8 oz/hr is not too much. Your body will thank you tomorrow. And although that Rocky Mountain high might be inviting, stay off alcohol and caffeine for at least 48 hours. You're welcome. :)
