RE: Can we expect these shenanigans?

We recently had a program where the rangers were selling 'wilderness access permits' (not sure of the exact name), and ticketed people without the pass. A judge just last week declared them illegal. Note that the rangers never had legal authority to issue a pass or write a ticket or collect a fine. :h Wow- that IS news; got a link to a news story? I ask because Wilderness Access Permits have been required for years on many Federal Lands including California's- but especially since the requirement is still listed as ongoing at this Rec.gov site.

RE: 1 way RV Class A Rentals. Having difficulty.Need help please

Hello all, I'm a Firefighter from Los Angeles trying to book a one way rental from Atlanta or Jacksonville area (drop off in Boston/NY area)….but have met a lot of obstacles. El Monte will not do the one way and Cruise America's biggest RV is a 30 foot…not ideal for a 12 day trip and 6 full size adults. Any thought/opinions/etc etc would be rather helpful. Thank you! James :h Trying to figure out the relevance (if any) of the fact that you're a Firefighter...is the same true of the rest of the six "full-size adults" you describe, and are you all scheduled to show up for a fire event of some kind in the Boston/New York area?

RE: Can we expect these shenanigans?

Can we expect these shenanigans? Yes. And may I say that "shenanigans" is one of my favorite words ever. Right up there with hankypanky, monkeyshines, and of course the ever-relevant "tomfoolery". Thanks for your help in preserving the language!

RE: SE WA/NE OR steep roads?

I'm looking for a stretch of road where at least 2 miles is paved at a 6% or greater grade. Why, if I may ask? Some kind of Hell-on-Wheels challenge or something? BTW and FYI, just this past week I did the 6% for ten miles (m/l) grade climb over White Pass, towing 2200 pounds of full-height trailer behind a four cylinder Kia.

RE: Good News!!!

Congratulations are indeed in order, especially to the SIL who overcame the genetic push of his heritage. Sex of the child being determined by the Dad, this is no small thing. Given the lack of little girls for these many long years, I presume there's a steep learning curve ahead regarding such things as Polly Pockets etc...do please post here in the forums for advice from those of us Grandparents experienced in such Important Topics!

RE: Boy Scout border crossing

Thanks for the update, fellas. No big surprise that it never happened. Well, except in the minds of those who will probably now yell "coverup"...:R Do you s'pose the perpetrator of the lie will now be made to pay the $19,000.00 cost of the investigation? And will he be reprimanded or in any other way disciplined by BSA, the organization he represents??

RE: So where will you be???

Thanks. Can you tell me what DNR is "DNR" stands for "Department of Natural Resources" , usually a State agency.

RE: Help! 2011 Ford Escape

There's a very long discussion of the transmission problems folks have had with flat-towed Escapes at this link. Looks like in some cases at least Ford did replace transmissions. Good luck

Rabies confirmed in Olympic Peninsula, Wa. bat

Heads up for Peninsula dwellers and travelers: Fella visiting Olympic National Park got scratched Aug. 12th by a bat. He had the presence of mind to capture/turn the animal in, and tests confirmed it was rabid. Park staff is reminding folks not to approach/handle wildlife of any kind, especially if they appear sick and/or fearless of people; and to report any such observed critters. News report here

RE: kid chopping down live trees?

I can't imagine an adult doing this Why not? "Adults" do all kinds of terrible things, often only because they can get away with it. Because they're "adults". I find it disturbing that anyone would automatically presume that some child was guilty of such vandalism.

RE: What to do to correct dog agression to other dogs?

I'll say what everyone else is dancing around: The dog should be put down. It is a danger to other animals- and likely humans, too. The only other viable option is continuous restraint/confinement/muzzling, all of which will only serve to make the dog more miserable than it is now.

RE: Swivel Wheels

Pretty sure its considered a trailer. Things like that tend to bounce a lot and you would want to keep a good eye on the wheel bearings I've seen lots of debate over this issue. I've even seen a manufacturer (can't remember which) state that it doesn't qualify as a trailer but they never showed official documentation. There's a single bit of (supposed) State-of-Idaho documentation floating around specific only to the Idaho Tote. Link to letter But it uses the language "bolted/permanently attached to RV" in its assertion that the unit is simply an add-on. Dunno how a receiver-type arrangement would be perceived, even there.

RE: Another Yellowstone Death

Sad...but: "Another"? Has there been some sort of surge of deaths there lately?

RE: Apache Camping, Everett, Washington

They where angry when they learned what we were getting and could not come within 30% of the price. I completely understand there reluctance to match what was clearly a “loss leader” for the dealer we purchased. At no time did they threaten to not service the out-of-state rig at the time of transaction. It was not until we attempted to schedule our first appointment. And this was a surprise to you? This is the second time you've told us that negotiations were so tense that they were actually "angry" with you. Hardly sounds like you went out of your way to evolve a friendly relationship with them to begin with. Why on earth would you expect them to greet you with open arms when you needed warranty work? Especially given that history, might it not be reasonable for them to expect that you might be more trouble during any other process they're involved in with you? I'm skeptical that any generalities about Apache's willingness (or not) to service rigs not purchased there can be made in this case. I think it's more likely that they just don't want you yourself for a customer.

RE: MA title travel trailer

unless the trailer came from NH. I don't think trailers in NH need a title. Also depends on the age of the camper. No State with Title requirements cares if a trailer didn't need a Title in some other State- it'll still have to have one in its new State. That's why it's important to get whatever paperwork came from the original manufacturer. (Manufacturer Certificate of Origin). Absent that, it's my opinion that a buyer should insist on seller participation in the rehoming process, in whatever fashion satisfies the requirements of the new State. In this case Massachusetts. It may be that simple sworn affidavits would do...but I certainly wouldn't hand over any money until I was satisfied that my STATE was satisfied.

RE: Off Road Aliner?

But to say the Trillium is better in the outback than an Aliner I never said that. I only asked for evidence that the Aliner in the threadstarter is "better". No evidence has been proffered so far that supports that contention. Next!

RE: HANDY TOOL to carry

I like even better at a flea market a couple of years ago. It is a handle that a sawzall blade will snap into and the handle pivots so it can be used straight like the saw shown or at 90 degrees for a pistol grip like saw. Added advantage is all the types of blades available for sawzall. Oh...., yeah. Pretty sure that's the Bad boy RJCarazza mentioned, post before yours. Got one of those in my kit, too! (See below pic). http://www.plumbersurplus.com/images/prod/1/0603999007_lg.jpg width=200 Between the two of these saws I could build a house, beginning with harvesting the trees myself! If I had to. Assuming I'd lost my credit card or the world was otherwise coming to an end or something. ;)
