RE: Dollar store Awesome

We used it (diluted) to clean the exterior of the gutters on our house. It took the shine off and now everything sticks to them and they look awful. We threw the rest of that totally awesome stuff away and will never use it again.

RE: Has anyone had a run in with any WILD animals?

We seem to run into a lot of snakes on our hikes. https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-EmY4rJ92B04/UkWmhNMnTII/AAAAAAAAIjU/_G6uv50YjIs/s800/Niagara-057.jpg width=640 https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-iMXba0osRac/UkWpwmPxVII/AAAAAAAAIp0/waw03tzF00A/s800/Niagara-109.jpg width=640 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ZVhEM6M-E2I/UkWp6Z2oqmI/AAAAAAAAIqM/P6EA90mpxaI/s800/Niagara-112.jpg width=640 This one really blended in: https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-ALp1YzHxRjc/UdRpmYVE64I/AAAAAAAAMS0/2-CNLYmq-nw/s800/CoopersRock-013.jpg width=640

RE: I had a craving, but got over it!

I quit buying pickups a long time ago. I found out I could replace a pickup with a small utility trailer that I could tow with whatever vehicle I had, whenever I needed to haul something.I quit buying pickups a long time ago. I found out I could replace a pickup with a small utility trailer that I could tow with whatever vehicle I had, whenever I needed to haul something. I love my clean 2-owner 4x4 GMC Envoy (2007) which I also use as a perfect toad, and the perfect bassboat launch vehicle. BUT, if I had plenty of money I would buy a new aluminum Ford pickup, just for the bragging rights.Same here - our last pickup was a '78 F150. Gave it up in '97. We replaced it with a utility trailer that dumps. Plus - 4X4 SUVs go better through the snow than 4X4 pickups.

RE: Can we please increase the max image size?

Is there no IT group behind this forum?Question of the day.I would doubt it. Why pay programmers/engineers for a free forum? I think we're lucky that when it goes down it sooner or later comes back up.

RE: Not cleaning the rv oven

We use the oven all the time. Instead of a pizza stone on the bottom we have an air bake cookie sheet that sits on the rack - directly under what we're cooking. The sheet is just a bit smaller that the oven dimensions. It makes for perfect cooking *and* keeps the oven spotless.

RE: Who's Looking Out for Our Interests?

Who's Looking Out for Our Interests? http://rv.org/about.htm Unfortunately, most (if not all, these days) business is not at all concerned with long term issues, they are just interested in shareholder return in the short term.This is true. We must look out for our own selves --- 'cuz nobody else will --- it's not in their best interests.

Turn auto updates off. Get them when you want to.This. Or get them never if you choose.

RE: WDH - how much does it reduce tongue weight?

Here is what the manual says. "The permissible Trailer drawbar Weight Rating (TWR) is the maximum weight permitted on the trailer drawbar: 600 lbs. limit for approved trailer couplings. "MB recommends loading the trailer so that the drawbar noseweight remains between 8% and 15% of the permissible gross trailer weight." The permissible gross trailer weight is 7500#.This has nothing to do with what the hitch can handle. This is just telling you how to load the trailer so you don't have sway.

RE: Do you have goals, aims or neither in life?

These definitions of terms are making me think... (uh oh) I see what you're saying Dewey and agree with the differences, but I tend to agree with Holstein about goals just because of the way I see them personally. A goal is something to really try hard to achieve - you know - like in sports. To miss the goal lets somebody down - your teammates or just yourself. An aim is more relaxing - I always liked the saying to aim for the stars. You don't really have to get there, but you can try - and have fun along the way. I think you can tell by the way I set up those personal definitions that I would rather be someone with aims than goals; I don't like to fail and I do like to have fun. **These are just my personal thoughts - not arguing. :)

RE: N Falls, NY - Acadia Natl Park

Let me offer an alternative, if time isn't an issue and you want a nice ride... From Albany area, take NY Thruway - 87 - north. You can either cross into VT at the south end or "over the top" of Lake Champlain. Basically, you are looking for Rte 2 - it is the east/west road across the tops of VT and NH, then across Maine. Good road - trucks use it all the time - so no issue with towing. Puts you back onto I-95 in ME around Newport, then north to Bangor and south on 1 towards Ellsworth and Bar Harbor. I hate travelling the Mass Pike (90) east/west - and Rte 9 across VT with a 35' rig might not be a lot of fun. Check a map - let me know if you have other questions! STThis is what we have done. E on I-90, N on I-87, E on 4, N on I-91, E on 2. Then you can see VT and NH too.

RE: Coffee Grinder?

Not trying to be a smart alek, but if your current coffee tastes good and the only complaint is grounds in your coffee, then why don't you just pour it into the cup through a small strainer? I occasionally use a french press, and this is what I do.One doesn't need to be a smart aleck to give some advice. ;) And thanks very much for this - believe it or not I never thought of it. Found what looks like a good one on Amazon: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/817P8TMiXAL._SL1500_.jpg width=200 I definitely will grind beans if just for the fun of it, not to mention the wonderful aroma while grinding. The strainer should help in any case.

RE: Coffee Grinder?

Thanks very much for the additional replies. I've got the antique grinder cleaned up and will try to get to the store for beans - then we'll see how it goes. I'm thinking this grinder is the burr type as the mechanism looks a lot like this one on the left with the grooves: http://www.home-barista.com/forums/userpix/8130_mimosa_burr.jpg width=300

RE: Camping with PTSD

I agree with all the previous advice. Have you been to a therapist who works with EMDR? It is amazing how it can really work well with a lot of people with PTSD. It has to do with controlled eye movements to desensitize the triggers. Good luck!

RE: Coffee Grinder?

OP here -- Thanks all for the responses. We have done the grinding at the store, but still find the coffee grains aren't large enough even when we set it to coarse. And we don't want to spend a lot on a grinder since we use the Keurig at home. While I was walking through the house after I posted this I came face to face with the antique coffee grinder we have mounted on the wall in the kitchen. I'm thinking of taking it apart to clean the grinding part and then giving it a try with some fresh beans. It looks like this: http://media.liveauctiongroup.net/i/5964/9789876_1.jpg?v=8CD17CC5D8E92E0 width=100 Not sure how coarse it will turn out since you just turn the crank to grind it and there is no real control, but we'll see. :)

Coffee Grinder?

The other topic about coffee brought this question to mind... We use a french press while camping. I'm looking for a coffee grinder that makes medium to largish grounds so the filter in the french press does a better job. We have been buying the pre-ground coffee for our trips, but don't like the grounds in our cups of coffee. I'm not sure if we should have a small (non-electric) one to bring with us and grind new beans every day - or - one to leave at home and bring a jar of grounds with us. Any suggestions?

RE: Come on over for campfire coffee

At home we use a Keurig and on the road a french press. Our favorite coffee at this time is Wegman's Columbian - both in the K-cups and the bag of ground for camping. Don't love cleaning up the grounds, but DH loves the french press coffee the best. Personally I'm not a coffee connoisseur, but will drink it at times.
