RE: Ind. trooper lauded as 'hero' for citing 'slowpoke' driver

Most of these type discussions seem to always gravitate towards wrongly opinioned conclusions something like this: "If vehicles all around you are going over the speed limit and you're not and if there is not a right-hand slow lane or appropriate slow vehicle turnouts ... then you are out of line if you don't speed up to match the rest of the law breakers." And the bottom-line justification for the above position being in the right is usually "safety". The above is baloney thinking. How about more enforcement of speed limits and way stiffer fines for the caught speed law violators? Maybe more (expensive) law enforcement officers and their vehicles is not required. Maybe it's instead way cheaper and better to use license plate reading radar detectors installed all over the country to slow drivers down. For example, a couple weeks ago we were traveling downhill on a winding mountain road with a 40 MPH speed limit and we were traveling 2-3 MPH faster and still barely safely than this in our motorhome. There were no safe pullouts and no road shoulders. An impatient pickup soon pulled up behind, tailgating us. The pickup (male) driver soon passed us crossing double yellow lines, gave use a certain finger as he passed us, and quickly pulled away obviously going way faster than 40 MPH. The above baloney stuff goes on all the time. Something is out of whack on this county's roadways. When is it going to end? For Pete's Sack ... IMHO millions of drivers need to slow down and smell either the roses or the fuel fumes!The problem is that you equate bad driving to speeding. Speed had nothing to do with the bad driving. Speed was secondary to his lousy driving. I speed all the time, usually a couple mph over the limit, but most of the time you'd never know it because I ride smoothly, and rarely ruffle feathers.No the problem is that you think you are above the law.

RE: Sidewalk chalk

Yeah great. Lets teach these kids to be vandals. It is not OK to mark up public or someone else's property.

RE: Who has a Drone they take Camping?

I know drones are a bit of a two way street, some people love them and others hate them. Admittedly they can be noisy and a nuisance if flown in the wrong place. In many places they are often restricted from flying for various reasons. That being said, they are going to be part of our future in one form or another. There are times when having a drone to take some pictures unobtainable the usual way is handy and quite fun. It can also be handy to do some basic scouting if say a particular stretch of off highway road looks troublesome and you aren't certain how far it stretches. I have yet to take my own drone (Parrot Bebop 2) flying with me while camping but I anticipate I'll probably do it on my next trip. Does anyone else have a drone they take with them while camping and if so, what have you used it for and what precautions do you take to not upset others? Keep drones out of the campgrounds.

RE: nothing to do with rv,s eye floaters a cure?

Go to the doctor. My wife started having floaters and headaches. She went to the eye Dr., he diagnosed temporal arteritis. She had the bulging forehead vein and everything. He stated the only way to be sure was to do a biopsy on the vein. A day after the biopsy she had a mini-stroke TIA. Come to find out her carotid artery one side was 99-100% blocked. Opened it up, cleaned it out and she is much better. Get a ultrasound on your neck.

RE: I'm surprised there's not more posts here

A "less skilled and less experienced" driver is much more likely to say, "This is as good as it gets" as they chase their combination down the road, than those of us who have the experience to know what "good" really is. My point is that you took a shot at "less skilled and less experienced" drivers. The more one tows, the more they will appreciate that little extra. I am not talking a one hundred percent cushion, but twenty percent is nice to have sometimes. I have seen people on here who have to leave a kid at home to make things work. Not for me. Do us all a favor and shut up.

RE: I tried Camping World STL but was ignored

I had to drop the mother in law off at the airport yesterday. I wanted to check out a couple big city RV dealers while there. Camping World was about 20 miles out of my way but I figured I'd give them a shot. I walked in and asked for a salesman. Was told none was available. The lady at the desk said I could look in the lot for myself. I asked her where the travel trailers were. She said she didn't know that I should just walk around. I walked around for about 30 minutes but was getting extremely frustrated. I know nothing about your layout or what is available. :M I walked back in and told her I was going home. "Ok have a nice day" I will NOT be back!!!! There were hardly any customers there. I only saw 1 couple there. And they were waiting as well You weren't going to buy anything, so you were just wasting their time.

RE: Egglette Advisory

Ok it is a "General RVing issue because many RVers like to EAT. and many campgrounds do things like POT LUCK dinners and a common "Dish to pass" is deviled eggs. An Egglet is a silicon "Egg shell" you take a raw egg, break it into the "Egglet" put the top on and drop it in a pan of boiling water.. Time it and then remove the egglet, and "Decant" (yes that is the word) a perfect hard boiled egg suitable for Egg Salad, or Cheif's Salad or Deviled eggs or ______ No pealing needed. Heavily advertised on TV. Why they would put holes in 'em I don't know. You trying to defend having this in the wrong forum...what a douche.
