RE: Can I jump start my toad from my motor home?

Let see..jump it and then let the car run for an hour to charge the battery. Not very green....almost as bad as running an antique diesel.

RE: Can I jump start my toad from my motor home?

Why not just start the gen set and use it to run a battery charger for your toad. On my previous toad running down the battery was a weekly occurrence tat was fixed by a batt charger at the camp ground every other night

RE: Valdez - Grocery Store?

There is also a beer liquor store next to the safeway with a good selection

RE: Spare tire for Alaska trip ?

I carry a spare tire, a rated bottle jack and lug tools to change. While I may not feel capable of doing the job myself, at least I am ready to accept help, without getting stranded for a week. While there are services available, scheduling has to be considered. A fellow camper south of Whitehorse a hundred miles was stuck for two weeks last summer waiting on shop time availability and tow truck for a diesel exhaust problem.

RE: Lafayette, Louisiana

Frog city campground 10 miles west of Lafayette is useful. Avery Island south of Lafay is interesting. Layafette itself was kinda off the beaten path for the civil war

RE: Bizarre California health care sitch

Also, my optimalogist 5 months ago refused to accept medicare advantage through Aetna, on a medicare covered exam. The explanation was that Aetna would pay below the medicare rate and pocket the difference

RE: Bizarre California health care sitch

One simple change would fix many of the medical bill issues. Allow providers to establish their own rates but require that all customers pay the same rate regardless of being insured, mediocre or selfpay. A number of years ago I spent the night in the local hospital covered by insurance for 1100 dollars. By mistake the hospital sent me the original invoice for 11000 dollars. I went to the accounting dept to verify the erroneous billing and asked what I would be billed if actually self paying. Response was 11000. The negotiated rate fraud is used to justify the insurance companies administrative malarky

RE: The Grand Canyon to improve handicapped access

regards swimming pool lifts...My wifes only access to a swimming pool is through the use of a lift. A swimming pool for a polio paraplegic is fantastic for muscle inhancement and in a pool she is almost an equal to the other guests. The lifts I have seen are not expensive when compared to ramps, and door openers. I found the folks at the grand canyon to be very responsive in assisting access to the grounds 7 or 8 years ago unlike the folks at denali in Alaska. denali had the same access procedures but they did not disclose them and when challenged claimed a 5 day waiting period to process a request

RE: Memorial Weekend Ruined

using the same standards as the BP oil spill in the gulf, everyone within a hundred miles of the coast, 300 miles north south will have cause for a money claim. The campground has been reserved for lawyers and accountants. Anyone with a post on this blog can happily point to intent to use that park for claim backup documentation

RE: State of Emergency in Washington?

I do feel kind of sad for California, tripling its population, eliminating greenhouse gasses, high speed rail, cancer notices on every package, saving the snail darter, promoting the use of foreign tech workers while laying off residents and some how planning for water supply just got overlooked the last 30 years in favor of restrictions.

RE: Buckee's Road stop

The Wharton 59 south Buccees has only been open for 3-4 years and they just started construction on doubling the number of pumps. That location seems to have to many people leaving their vehicles at the pumps unattended while they go inside to shop. When the pumps are busy, its just plain rude to leave the vehicles tieing up the space

wild weather strips awning

Coming south out of Houston yesterday, there was a very nice motor home with toad on the side of the road with an auto awning fully extended and ripped/bent. I was not able to stop but surmise that the side wind extracted the awning. I have seen that a couple times. When the nasty blows and I have to travel I will bungy my slide topper in place and lash the locks on my mech awning. This morning we had gale force winds in Rockport and it would definitely not be a travel days

RE: Mortorhome Dinghy towing problems

We are on the road about a hundred days a year and manage to get trapped on a dead end road about once a year. Simple to disconnect. Gas stations get the critical review as I approach and will pass it up if do not like the access/egress. By keeping a minimum of a quarter tank of gas, there is usually another station down the road.

RE: Buckee's Road stop

I talked to Arch Alpin this week about why Buccee's sells beer and requires its employees to work on Sunday while not selling lotto tickets. Response was its just money..

RE: What should I stock up on?

Fred Meyers in Soldatna is a great place to buy fish. King Crab there was 11 dollars a pound. King crab in the fishing port city of Homer was 32 dollars a pound the same week. The cannery in Valdez was another good place for fish.

RE: What should I stock up on?

Every thing is available through Canada. Meat and cheese you will find cost 2 to 3 times what you are used to. Bring it with you and plan on eating a lot of pasta and rice. Because of the cost of meat the Canadians do an excellent job with sausage. Fast food joints are pricey also.

RE: Steps won't close urgent

In 4 year my steps have gone out 3 times. The last time was at the beginning of a 4 month trip to Alaska. Each time qualified techs did the fix. My fix currently is to strap it in the up position and use a wooden set of steps till I figure out what to do. A kitchen step ladder is used for gas station stops. I woul love to see a good solution that folks were proud of. pops

RE: folding mobility scooter

Go to spinlife .com... They have a wide variety of scooters at discounted prices. I have been using them as a source for 15 years. They will deliver to your house with a couple day lead time. Pride go go is the wifes preferred model 3 wheel. Take the seat and battery pac off and the remain lift weight is 60 lb. Pull a lever and the unit separates again into two 30 lb. Scooter applications for paved/unpaved surfaces are totally different. Do not try to mix. An intermediate sized scooter will do neither job well. My wifes usage is for paved where a small travel scooter works best

Travel in windy New Orleans

There is a low quality video from a news dash cam in New Orleans that shows a train moving down the east side of the Huey Long Bridge about 200 feet off the ground...And two box cars are blown over the side falling to the ground. Occurred yesterday when a front with 70-100 mph wind went through. Folks that try to fight the cross wind while traveling with there rv's need to see this and consider how fast control is lost pops
