RE: NASCAR 'Glory Days' in the Rearview Mirror

NASCAR started going down the toilet when toyota came aboard. Lots quit watching then. The truck series looks like a toyota parade. I didn't quit watching but instead of just rooting for Cheby anything but a toyota first across the the line is fine with me. Desperately need dodge back in the game.

RE: Just wanted to say goodbye

Dog gone it, when someone asked a sattilte question I kept waiting for what Sattelite Bill would say. Now what are we going to do? Will miss you!

RE: surround sound

I had two trailers I had to use my own cable to connect to aux to make the surround work on the TV. You then had to turn down the volume on the TV

RE: NASCAR 'Glory Days' in the Rearview Mirror

After going to a few races I weighed the difference between watching on TV or or spending a couple of hundred dollars, seven dollar beers and not knowing what the heck is going on most of the time. TV won out.

RE: I can't get my local channels on directtv

Where I am set up for the winter you will get nada, zero, nothing OTA. Only good the antenna is for is maybe roof decoration. They have cable here but I choose to bring my dish. Change my service address and get the local locals. Broncos playing and the locals don't show it I get to spend the afternoon at the local pub that has the NFL ticket.

RE: Cedar Creek & Silverback

Really like the Silver back peaked slide outs until I noticed theY lost a lot of cupboard space with them.

Broadway for watching TV

Anyone ever tried a Broadway for watching TV on your iPad or lap top with one? Going to have Internet and no cable in three parks on our way to AZ and only one has OTA. Have not seen this one discussed or have missed it. Have a link but not able to format it this morning on rv.net. Someone might do it for me. Thanks http://www.hauppauge.com/site/products/data_broadway.html Edit: link just made its self. Magic. LOL

RE: Gas prices falling!

Diesel just went up about 5¢ and gas went down 10¢. The RV place I USE to get propane raised theirs to $3.85 a gallon! The bulk plant I went back to using is only $2.85 well worth the 2 mile longer drive.

RE: Beware of no name motor oil

We used to use recycled non-detergent no-name bulk dispensed oil in our pickup- but it was a $200 1949 Dodge 1 ton with a flathead 6- no 2 parts actually touched in the engine, and we were afraid detergent would clean the crud keeping it together. :) Yeah when I first started driving I would use Golden West recycled oil and use the 17¢ I saved on a pack of Lucy Strikes.

RE: For those that resist giving up their flip phone...

Piece of sandpaper wrapped around it makes a great sanding block.

RE: Texting?

I use to detest texts but with my new triple minute Tracfone that has text, voice, data, texting short messages keeps from using up voice minutes. I don't use the phone a whole lot for anything but communication, spreading it around saves me money.

RE: A good round of golf is ...

Can't be bought. All the new clubs can't replace lack of talent.

RE: For those that resist giving up their flip phone...

I'm still trying to figure out why I need a cell phone :H I was 'tethered' to a phone (24 hr---on call) for 25 yrs. of employment. Ain't happening in retirement. I have a cell phone....makes phone calls. Is on desk next to door or in truck and sometimes I'm even in same place. But when it rings......I decide to answer or NOT. Family/friends have all the latest gadgets/gizmos and they might as well be surgically implanted. ALL of them will have major withdrawals when cyberspace goes silent. I on the other hand will continue on without a skip Great post OB! I can imagine living back in the good ole days when we were not a slave to this technology. Some of it's OK but going into the local pub and sitting there at the bar with a dozen bikers and oil riggers staring into these contraptions is hilarious!

RE: Bear loads for Colt .45

Had a SW 44 mag. It was only accurate for one shot. The first one. The rest you would flinch, jerk or what ever. Traded it for a Taurus Titanium 357 mag. Accurate for ever shot but still packs a wallop. Gun dealer said it was the minimum you would want for a bear.

RE: For those that resist giving up their flip phone...

Went to a smart phone because Tracfone gives triple minutes with it. It would be DUMB not to take avatage of that. Well, I sorta still use it as a dummie cause I turn off my data. However a $10-$15 phone bill is kinda smart compared to a $85 bill. Oh, I now use an iPhone on Tracfone like the real smart guys. LOL

RE: Grumpy's Garage

If you own an air plane and are cleaning it up don't forget the prop wash.
