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

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. :)

RE: High Level Q: TT vs FW for Full-timing?

Will mention again that we've been doing this for now 14 years. Do we have an exit plan? Yes we do! One of us will exit before the other. The other of the 2 will keep on keepin' on. We know this certainly. Neither of us will ever go back to that other way of life. She and me agree and we both know how to do it well, together and apart. Someone else mentioned that there is no one solution for everyone. Could not agree more. What will unquestionably work for us would be unlikely to work for the masses. Do what needs to be done because, as always, ain't none of us gettin' out of this alive. Think too long about it and you just might have thought yourself into a grave with nothing more than a fancy headstone to mark your passing that none will really care about in short order. Live what life you have left to its fullest! And to respond to the original query, we have had FW's along the entirety of our journey. We've spent a few weeks in a TT. The 5'ers have always felt more like "home". It's all about personal preference. Trailers are marginally easier to park and ft for ft are cheaper. Whatever floats your boat.

RE: Any of regret going fulltime Rving

After 14 years of fulltime traveling, do we have regrets? Yes we do! We regret that we didn't start sooner! We have never regretted selling the sticks and bricks and leaving the rest behind. One word sums it up: FREEDOM. Don't wait too long. None of us are getting out of this alive.

RE: carpet cleaning an rv

We want for literally nothing, and I have done most everything around the rig(s) over 14 years of fulltiming, but I can still make a penny squeak, so I type the following not lightly. Pay someone to come in and do it. It'll be some of the best $$ you'll ever spend.

RE: Measles -- younger boomers need to be revaccinated

This has nothing to do with an RV forum. Or at the VERY least it belongs in ATC. Oh moderator!

RE: Rude forum members

I belong to several different RV forums and I have never had a problem with rude posters on any other site. This site has about 20 members that are rude and just seem to troll around Forgive me if I'm mistaken, but I thought that you posted in the last couple of days that you had found a friendlier forum. Care to share? Thanks.

RE: Complaining

If I was to run, screaming, out the door right now, would it matter? I luv ya man!

RE: Complaining

This will turn into a typical rant here. It doesn't matter whether it's about dogs (pooping, barking, etc) loud children, loud music, bright lights, golf carts, idling diesels, and the list goes on and on. There is only ONE reason for these never ending complaints. It's all about people who have absolutely no concern for anyone but themselves. It really is that simple, and you are NEVER going to convince those few that they aren't special.
