Jeff could you give a bit more info how you go about reauthorizing on your iphone. i have the DirecTv app and an iphone6,just not sure how to get at the info you referenced. Thanks.

RE: Apache Trail Day 2

Trackhead the picture of your little guy pedaling away has to be the one of the cutest rear facing pictures i've ever seen. In one of your pictures it looks like you were in the midst of a meteor shower? Thanks for sharing your pictures and trip with us.

RE: Apache Trail Day 1

Excellent pics/TR. It is so gratifying to see parents spending quality time with their kids. Not so much fun seeing the little guys cry. Thanks for sharing the trip and especially the little guy with us.

RE: San Francisco

Wayne i would gladly leave the cargo rack at home if possible. Unfortunately i absolutely need it due to the length of our trip and its contents. Just no where else to store the water hose, gen set,battery charger,coleman stove,small gas can,etc. We will be on the road about 3 months in about as diverse settings you can imagine. Our travels will include LV,DV,SF,Yosemite,etc. Thanks all for the tips. It appears that our time in SF will begin with the Ferry and go from there. Thanks again everyone,much food for thought and it appears lots of planning and research will be on tap.

RE: San Francisco

... Yes we have a TC and not knowing assumed it might be better to commute to and from the city. You hinted that a trip to the city might be preferable or at least an option. You need to provide more information on your rig. How long is your TC? Are you comfortable driving in a big strange city? I will give you some thoughts after you respond to these questions. Just guessing but I am assuming there is probably no opportunity for urban boondocking within commuting distance to the city. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. I worked at San Quentin State Prison for just over five years. I commuted to the Placerville area. I lived in my TC in the prison parking lot/s for five nights a week. You can see the Larkspur Ferry and Marin RV Park from the prison. I constantly explored the area within a 45 minute drive of the prison looking for someplace to boondock. I never found anyplace I was comfortable with. With a TC, you could simply park on a street, but that is not comfortable to me. My point is if you are willing to park in a shopping center parking lot and are okay with being told you can't park there, I question any boondocking. They cannot simply hook a tow truck to your rig with you in it, and tow your rig. One of my co-workers made that discovery in San Francisco. Wayne your persistent requests for more info finally sunk in :S Whats better it made me rethink what was reasonable for my rig. I will not fit into a regular parking space as we will have a couple bikes (bike theft rampant in SF)) hanging off the back and a cargo rack off the front, for a total length of about 27'. In conclusion i think it would be advisable to stay out of the city and use the ferry. If reservations for Alkatraz must be made months in advance i guess we will not be going,who would have thunk it. I assume you were allowed to park at San Quentin because you were an employee. Thanks for your help. Van

RE: San Francisco

Just to clarify a bit. Not really looking a CG just somewhere to leave our TC during the day as we commute to the city. Basically we are looking for a smaller less congested town that has the easiest and closest access to Frisco. Sorry for being so vague.

San Francisco

Planning a trip from NC to Frisco. Hoping to find a place in the burbs or a neighboring town to use as a home base. Not sure how many days we will be there but probably no more than 3. We are trying to avoid driving in the city with an RV and are open to various modes of transportation. Our plan is to do mostly the touristy stuff,Alkatraz, Fishermans Wharf,Golden Gate bridge,etc. We are also open to suggestions of other must sees. Thanks all for your tips and suggestions.

RE: Hard starting Honda 2000s

My 2000 is much the same. I found that if I turned the knob(on/off knob) from off to on and just let it sit for a a minute or so before trying to start, it would start in one or two pulls (with the choke on). I don't know if this will resolve your problem but it seems to have made a difference for mine. Hope it works for you. You are spot on with your assessment. Quite by accident i discovered if i turn the on/off knob on and turn the choke to the on position it will crank first or second pull everytime, "IF" i let it sit a couple of minutes before trying to start. I hate to admit this but i did it the other way for about 7 years with results similar to the OP. :S

RE: IPHONE 6

I have an iphone 6 and "YES" you can turn off the cellular data in settings and still make phone calls. Those stating otherwise are mistaken.

RE: Give Dish heck for dropping Fox News and get a credit

Here in Raleigh they have dropped CBS and Fox. My folks and other family members are hopping mad. I personally have Directv and therefore unaffected.....this time. Going forward i'm sure my turn is coming as this is not just a Dish specific issue.

RE: 600 watt pure sine wave inverter

I have and recommend Go Power 300 watt sine wave for powering the entertainment system and recharging small items. Get the 600 if you must but I think 300 is fine. http://www.boatandrvaccessories.com/go-power-gp-sw300-12-300-watt-12-volt-pure-sine-inverter.html x2

RE: VZ Data

Big Whitey Which device are you using? Is it the JetpackĀ® 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot MiFiĀ® 5510L? I've been thinking of getting it and I probably will now that they appear to have doubled the data for the same price. I have another service besides Verizon and we're only allowed 1 gig of data per month when out of our home area which is at least half of the year. Bill The data plan I referenced was for an iPhone 6. Sorry for the confusion.

RE: VZ Data

I received an offer for another 4 gb free but my contract has expired. Wondering if I should try the half-price Sprint offer instead but VZ has a much better reputation. In a word NO to Sprint.

RE: VZ Data

I'm guessing that deal also restarted your 2 year contract? Wireless carriers place high value on having you under contract for as long as possible. There is currently a bit of a price war between carriers, which has been mostly focused around increased data allowances. As carriers finally are able to keep up with ever increasing data demands, HOPEFULLY we'll see the pricing of data plans continue to fall. FYI: I am a new VZ customer (1 month) with the VZ 2 GB data plan and paying $50 per month. Today I received a text from them wanting to know if I would be interested in 4 GB for the same $50 cost. DUH,I said yes and in less than a minute I went from having 2 GB of data to having 4 GB at the same cost. The deal DID NOT restart my contract or result in a contract extension.

RE: Sailing the Southwest with the Whazoos

Great TR as usual. You just continue to spoil us with your many adventures in a very scenic area. You must truly be the king of photoshop with all the witty enhancements on your pics. So happy the girls are doing well.

RE: VZ Data

If you have a smart phone you may have to buy more! Sorta doubt it as there are only two of us and we both already have smart phones. Can't figure why we would need more than one, so they're out of luck. Lol.

RE: VZ Data

I was hooked when I bought my first I phone and signed my first 2 yr contract with AT&T. Going with VZ and getting my data doubled the first month is like getting a bonus at work for doing what you got to do anyway.
