RE: Termites in the Camper??

I would never use pesticide in a small livable space like a camper. There are enough chemical villians everywhere in food water and air. Go ahead with the experts ..... I'll stay with a light spray of antifreeze or wd 40. Furthermore termites like wood that starts breaking down from the micro organisms that can live in moisture conditions. Antifreeze will stop the wood breaking down. Rot. and kill the termites. Antifreeze is a good wood rot arrestor because it is compatible with moisture and kills living things. I did not go to exterminator school. If worried about WD fumes or antifreeze fumes/ vapors then use a high concentration of water and dishsoap. Dishsoap kills most bugs but, Chevron doesn't want to tell you that. Neither does an exterminator.

RE: Termites in the Camper??

WD-40 lightly spray soaked into the wood they are munching is my guess.

RE: Termites in the Camper??

LMAO..... Now the fun part; ten more answers will follow from people who will determine that DIY experience trumps this. Well written sir. Bingo. That is EXACTLY why I rarely post here, concerning pests. Everybody thinks they know entomology and pest control. It normally is not worth the trouble. Thanks for recognizing that. I've seen just as many mistakes from professionals also. If you listen carefully there are little bits and pieces of useful information from just about everyone. Sometimes a very good clue to giving direction for more research can be had by the least of the experts.

RE: Overnighting-while-Urban, or OU

Stealth camping is too stressful. It's the chance of the fine or the chance of being woken up during your long over due sleep that makes it not worth it. Permission and a good rest is much better. Not to mention the unrelenting thoughts in getting a fine and then having to find another place while still half asleep. I'll go get permission. Besides if you travel under starlight, not freeway light, your chances of truly free camping are much greater.:) This is sort of like the old discussion that you are causing an unsafe condition because your doing the speed limit. Everyone has to go around since your not speeding like most everyone else. Surround yourself with good deeds, your future will be much brighter.

RE: Language, are we progressing or regressing

You'll be happy to hear that I don't allow any swearing on my jobsites. I think everyone feels a bit more positive for it.

RE: Anthem hacked

Isn't smart just to use cash and have no credit cards? Pay by mail? That way little to no hackers and telephone soliciters. Right?

RE: 12 volt coffee maker

Find a nice old percolator for the top of the stove. If you cannot find an old percolator try KMART Click here to see percolator I vote this is the best advice. I just cannot see running hot liquids thru any kind of plastic appliance. All it does is brew added polyvinyl chlorides into the coffee from plastic. There is already enough cancer in a lot of our friends and other Americans around us. Just make sure the coffee pot has a glass bubble on the top. Camping is for getting a break from any kind of normal routine so we stove top perc also. It's a lot of fun in the anticipation and learning to get it just right.

RE: Tell me what you think

I'd give him a raise right now. Thanks for the link to that.

RE: Watch what you say on social media.

So now the internet information is no longer reliable when doing a search? Suppose a company is unscrupulus or a scammer? Suppose a restaurant is sickening, you can no longer tell the truth? So the internet and the computer are useless?

RE: Financial advisors

You must be doing okay since you have a nice rig like that. A good financial advisor doesn't charge anything up front. He makes his fee/cut from mutual fund back end or 12 b 1 fees. A good one will be honest about how his funds compare to other investments and can also set you in the right direction for savings, insurance, wills and trusts.

RE: Recommendations for Montana, Idaho, Washington

In my opinion you will ruin your travel experience if you go anywhere near the I-5 corridor and Seattle. The place is mobbed with rude drivers, overcrowded roadways. Best to stay off interstates but esp. Seattle area and I-5.

RE: Recommendations for Montana, Idaho, Washington

Drive through Sun Valley,Idaho, Stanley, Challis, Salmon, Idaho. North through Hamilton, MT and the Bitterroot valley to Missoula, then north to Glacier, National Park. The Lochsa River route (Highway 12) west of Missoula is also scenic. Visit Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. Drive the high country route between Cooke City, MT east to Red Lodge, MT just NE of Yellowstone, NP. Lots of campgrounds or boondocking in these areas. These are very good recommendations. Best compilation I've seen an awhile. Thumbs up here.

RE: Everything Was Going So Well.....Until It Wasn't

Tine for a new flatbed and full length side saddle boxes for storage under the camper wings. Never could get used to the fenders out so far on a dually style bed.

RE: Bush People

They seem to have big stressful problems every time right before a commercial. I don't think I could have that many in ten years.

RE: TC Ladder Parts

Thanks BB, yes, one of the stand off screws on mine are showing rust. Probably worse inside where you can't see it.

RE: TC Ladder Parts

Thanks for clarifying that and someday soon I'll need the grab bar end caps like you say, I am sure.
