RE: Slab City, California Observations

Slab City bills itself as "the Last Free Place in America", which is I guess supposed to be some kind of attraction. "No gummint interference" and all that sort of thing. Funny thing is, I'm betting that once folks actually get there and see how badly it's been trashed, it makes them better appreciate the benefits provided by places where there's at least SOME sort of organized gummint!

RE: Beware of scammers!!!

Link to ad http://i.imgur.com/XuB2ywVl.jpg "border=0" Wow- that IS misleading. Pics show two generators, and the "details"( click above image to read) even talk about their output AND their oil/fuel capacity. But not until the very last line does it say "Does not include generators". On the bright side, surely no one would believe that you could buy all that including gennies for the price...

RE: What's her name to be

Of the two choices, I like Razz. But without the matazz. Per "Nike": I get the mythology reference, but I guarantee you that EVERYONE will think you named her after the shoe. While considering the options, you'd do well to ask yourself just how many swoosh/shoe jokes you're prepared to listen to during the upcoming many years that you're going to have her.

RE: I don't have a cat . . .

We're missing the point here, people! The point is: WALTER HAS NO CAT! That is clearly unacceptable! Let's all work on a transport relay and get a nice, big ol' fuzzy cat to Missouri! Who's in??? :B I'll start! I'll do the first leg, from Hadlock to the ferry terminal in Port Townsend. (This assuming someone else provides the cat.) That takes care of the first 9.5 miles...only 2,150.4 miles to go!:) http://i.imgur.com/B0sIZcxl.jpg I will start and finish it, I have a spare cat and live in MO. I will deliver her all the way too Ballwin MO. Now of course I haven't asked the DW about that but I have found that it may be easier to ask for forgiveness than ask for permission. :B DEAL! But I'm leaving the map up for your convenience. I think that once you drop the cat off you're going to need a place to hide far, FAR away from Missouri, and there's room for one more in my Husband's dog house here in Hadlock. Let me know which ferry you're coming in on and I'll pick you up! This of course assuming you make it this far before your Wife catches up with you.... http://www.millan.net/minimations/smileys/brodkavelarg.gif

RE: To Canadian Snowbirds: Prescription medications

If any of the scrips are "controlled substances" like Oxycontin or something, there might be less flexibility in the regs.

RE: Will RidEx decompose flushables?

Just saw a commercial for RidX on TV and at the end they said "Now for Rvs". Don They probably mean "now sold in a special, way more expensive container that says on it Ridx for RV's". Sucker bait! Just like that "special" RV TP. I'd add, though, that in my opinion as both a longtime septic system owner AND a former Environmental Health Specialist: RID-X is sucker bait PERIOD since all the bacteria needed for a septic tank to work is manufactured in the bowels of the users.

RE: Pearl Harbor Day

My Dad was called into service during WWII, leaving six children and another one on the way. It was me, I was born while he was gone, the only one of my family born in a hospital. The US government paid for me. Dad has been gone ten years. Mrs. HD Wow! Your Dad was a Patriot in more ways than one since he could have gotten out of serving at all, but chose to do his duty instead. You have a right to be doubly proud! I s'pose few folks alive now would know that with a family that size your Dad could easily have recieved a III-C exemption from service. Many did- some even deliberately increasing family size to enhance their tales of "hardship". That dodge became so well known that it spawned a popular phrase for the babies conceived for the purpose. They were called "weather strip babies" because as the gag went, they "kept daddy out of the draft".

RE: Will RidEx decompose flushables?

Most wipes are not biodegradable and break up very slowly if at all. And unless you can get them out promptly, they act as perfect collectors of fats/oils, which can cause major problems. As witness the FOURTEEN TON so-called "fatberg" pried out of the London sewer system a couple of years ago. Which now that I think of it is one more reason not to flush them in your RV- save the sewer it gets dumped into!

RE: Pearl Harbor Day

....snip.... Also anyone on this website that there parents served in World War II! You are not forgotten! Both of my parents (and two uncles) were in the Navy during that war- in fact, that's how my folks met. All are gone now. And as a matter of fact, Mom died just one year ago today...gone to join the rest of her old Navy crew on Pearl Harbor Day! http://i.imgur.com/ETTj6khl.jpg

RE: Has anybody validated your payload sticker?

Just curious mostly. Did you weigh your truck empty and verify the payload sticker was accurate? Thanks! Jeremiah:h Doesn't the payload sticker just state the allowable load that can be added to curb weight of the truck? Seems to me the only way one could "verify its accuracy" would be to add an exactly known weight to the truck, then compare total weight with whatever the GVWR is on the sticker. Is that what you mean?

Even the pros have their moments!

All of us have our momentary lapses...but fiver owners especially will likely best appreciate this "oops"! https://scontent-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xap1/v/t1.0-9/10704190_1540441892866436_2895626951330167367_n.jpg?oh=9b680271248ae59b76dc21a3c21f512d&oe=550A98C6 width=600 Pic from my SECOND favorite website, Say "No" to Bonehead Truckers

RE: Nervous Shiba Inu

She'll get over it, provided you do NOT acknowledge her "fears" etc. in any way, such as urging her to eat etc. Dogs pick up on our anxiety, which only reinforces their own. Suzanne Clothier and Patricia McConnell, two of the best dog trainers and behaviorists alive today, disagree with you. The Myth of Reinforcing Fear You Can't Reinforce Fear I wasn't speaking to fears of unusual occcurrences like thunderstorms, fireworks and the like. The O.P.'s concern has to do with anxiety in a changed environment, and how best to help the dog adapt to it. I guess I could have put it differently: it's possible to teach a dog NOT to be anxious about certain things by treating them as normal. This situation is a perfect example. The O.P.'s dog is anxious, likely due to the unfamiliarity of the circumstances. If the owner's behavior says "business as usual", the dog will learn that norm as nothing to be afraid of and will no longer need comforting.

RE: Hey Minnesota! How about that grape salad?

Well, for starters we ain't got no heiresses in Minnesota as we are common folk,so that was a tip off right there. And if it isn't something that's done as a "hotdish" or something to do with lutefisk, eelpout, or walleye then it probably isn't Minnesotan ...snip.... Not even in the "grape and pecan belt", which must be somewhere around Miami, Minnesota? :B

RE: What's your favorite recipe using turkey leftovers?

Lasagna with chopped turkey, ricotta, parmesan, spinach, mushrooms, and a white sauce instead of tomato-based. OR the same combination stuffed into manicottis then topped with the sauce and baked.
