RE: CB Radio - needed?

I used to keep a cobra with a magnetic mount K40 antenna in the truck... got to a point that I had to turn the squelch all the way up so my kids (2 daughters) did not hear... Once they stop going with me , I will use it again. Very helpful when it comes to accidents and stoppages . .

RE: Long Island to florida

Well , there are many ways to go.. If it were me I would do the following: Cross the outer bridge crossing into NJ and hop on the NJ turnpike south.. If you can , take it all the way south and cross the Delaware Memorial Bridge into DE.. Hop on 95 south and keep on trucking.. Once you get close to Baltimore , look for signs for 695 EAST.. Francis Scott Key Bridge... take 695 across the bridge and follow back to 95 south below Baltimore follow to Florida.. ----OR--- If you want to avoid the big cities all together you can do the following: follow directions above into DE on 95 south.. Once on 95 exit onto DE rt 896 south... follow to 896/301 south.. follow 301 to 50 west.. cross the Bay Bridge and stay on 50/301.. look for signs for 301 south in Bowie MD... take 301 south all the way down to 207.. that is the bowling green bypass.. take it to 95.. that will drop you on 95 at mile marker 104.. which is about 30 miles north of Richmond VA..

RE: Ford F-350 6.7 V8 Diesel 4WD SRW CC, LB and Towing Capacity

Your scaled weight of 9020# seemed quite high. I have the same truck, (Lariat, fully optioned) and with my 190# butt and full fuel I scaled at 7997#. Not sure what you have in the truck that adds 1023# ? Regardless, you are in the ballpark for the 5'ver you are looking at. yes.. and with my 225# butt . mine is 8150 with a plow frame

RE: Is this a good deal

Looks to be a heck of deal! As with the other posters with the high trade-in values they said to have gotten. Looks like those Ford dealers are giving at or above retail trade-in prices, those dealers must be hard up for sales? I went back to my dealer 5 days after trading mine in to ask if I could get something I left inside by mistake... It was in the back being prepped as the guy just signed the papers on it!.. Not sure of the sale amount , but a resale within 5 days!

RE: Tires and Bugs

quote - - " I had done a visual inspection and the tires had lots of tread. Now," In my eyes , that was your first mistake.... never run tires that sit prolonged periods without checking the air pressure . . I check mine before every trip...

RE: 5,000,000 Super Duty's Produced at Kentucky Truck Plant

I was born in Tampa Florida and I'm still here. Registered Republican with mostly Libertarian views. I've been a union member employed by a private company for 34 years. Never been on strike and never even seen a grievance form. My boss and I go fishing together. If I don't work, I don't get paid either. Nobody tells me who to vote for. I vote for the candidate who's most likely to leave me the ! alone. I think you have a very cynical and inaccurate spoon fed view of the average skilled union member. Too bad the right chases votes away with this rhetoric when we need the votes the most. I wouldn't necessarily call it a cynical view of unions. There's a just a difference between them. For example, I work with a lot of guys that are part of the electrical union (UEW, right?). Their union doesn't interfere with them, and they provide high quality training. In my opinion, that's a good operation. My f-in-law came from a northern metal workers union. They were everything that we hate about unions. When he moved to FL, he had the same issue with the same union. Teachers unions...don't get me started LOL. I encountered a fellow a while back that was a steel worker in a union. He'd beed out of work for several months and received almost his full pay that entire time. But UAW folks have some of the most bogus union situations I can imagine. Point is that there are good and bad unions. We don't see them as much down here regarding general trades as they do up north. I was born and raised in this area of FL. It is nice and peaceful. We've often thought of leaving, but just can't bring ourselves to doing it! I could not agree more.... All too many times , people picture the unions as the early century poorly run unions.. I too know a few High voltage electrical Contractors , that work their butts off and you would never know they were union..

RE: Are tents next to RV at campgrounds okay?

Last year we pulled into a campground and backed in the site.. I could not deploy my awning all the way as it would have hit the tent that was set up next to the TT is the site next to me.. I just asked to have another site... You will find that each CG owner will have their own rules , but most of the places I have been in allow it. And usually its not bad as long as the person setting up the tent has some common sense.....

RE: Y R exhausts/hookups on awning side

IF I find set up/layout an issue then I don't buy that one......way to many other ones available Folks don't buy.....mfg. will stop offering them. I also do this,,, when looking for a camper , once we see a floor plan that we like , I then go to the street side of the camper and look at all the hook ups... I have seen some really bad configurations.?????
