RE: soft pavement

1 inch treated plywood sections, with a smaller section glued and screwed on top of that as large as will fit a small compartment, that will go under your jacks and not have to run the wheels over them. They get heavy but plastic ones like utility companies use on outriggers cost a ton. In Texas we stayed at an RV resort outside Austin that was perfectly dry and had large rocks on the lane on the site. Our front jacks sunk down to their limit. Water running over rock a few feet down a week after a downpour. They brought big pieces of plywood plus ours and some boards after re situated on the site a few feet. The grass and lane were bone dry on top.

RE: bugs

If possible wash front of mh off in early morning when dew has them softened up. use a long handled brush and plenty of suds using anti spotting car wash. Might have to let suds set a minute or redo. Don't wash it in the hot sun and use a filter on the water hose, at many places. It's not like you're washing the whole coach. Ask first if you think there is a problem. Any dust or dirt and pollen can scratch the paint and glass. I waxed the glass with Mequires, Spray Synthetic wax when, I had the time and polished it off good. It helped a lot. Micro fiber towels or cloths really help clean the glass, on the end of a squeegie or one of those floor cleaner heads, Brain dead right now, with Armor All Glass Cleaner, no ammonia, when it is inconvenient to wash off the windshield but not a dusty cap.

RE: Smelly water after 3 days

The water, at least in parts of Ga and Florida is full of sulfur and iron. It make for stinky and slimy bacteria in water. That whitewater hose might as well be clear. The sun on that and you get what you have. A half micron water filter with silver will filter it out and inhibit bacteria growth. Get a 10 in whole house filter. It may clog pretty fast judging by what ours did in South Georgia. Someone posted a link to filters, recently that had some at a goo price. I can't find it at the moment. Until you bury the supply pipe, cover that hose with something. We use a blue, if color matters, fresh water hose, that is lined, with stainless ends. I think the newer ones are just plated but light won't help bacteria growth. We got our at American Coach store. I think someone said CW had them now.

RE: Proposed law affecting rv'er'sz in Canada

They really don't like us. You buy property in Canada or Ontario anyway Americans have to pay an additional 20% tax, unless it has been repealed. Americans can not get the mineral rights or water rights if they purchase either on Crown land. At the time we were serious about buying, on Superior, I didn't find the additional tax and restrictions on Europeans. You use to have to stay in Canada a minimum number, of days and produce receipts where you bought so much in groceries and provisions, and of course fees for your guns and you had to buy ammo, too, I believe up there, and of course you had to have a paid Guide to hunt there. There is a segment that wants to keep Americans out. I ate lunch with a Mayor of a small village, up there in the seventies. They had the idea that Americans owed them and that we had somehow cheat them. We should pay more when we came up there. I don't remember all the conversation, from so long ago. Not all Canadians are like that. We spent many enjoyable holidays up there. And we still have some contact information for Folks that we haven't talked with in years.

RE: Tailgaters

The idea is not a casual cruise. Move with the traffic to be safe and promote safe driving down the road. This is particularly important in heavy traffic areas. You may not be able to get to the minimum posted speed because semis are dwelling in the left lanes and Mom just picked the kids up from school and she never drives over 45 and to heck with being an impediment and safety issue. There are some roads where I Sunday drive around here and in the Country but I won't back up traffic. I've been cut off, in the right lane many times and the left lane. Wife is constantly because she refuses to go at the prevailing rate, some times, of traffic. I have to get her to move over. It matters not how fast the others are going. Your safety and not creating a safety hazard on the road is of paramount importance. If 55 is all you can go and that is the limit stay in the right lane. I had a woman from Alabama, the other evening sit in the left lane. Every time there was clear space in the right she sped up instead of getting over. Then she would slow down to match right lane traffic. Flashing lights didn't bother her, except maybe to call Leos and complain someone was bothering her. When I got off the Interstate there was a long line of traffic back up behind her.

RE: Whats a good Pistol to buy?

If you haven't been shooting, in a while go to a gun shop that has a good selection. Try one that fits your hand and is not heavy on recoil. It is more important to hit what you intend to rather than the biggest baddest gun out there. A nine mm in a double action pistol perhaps. First shot in double action and long trigger travel. Second and on is short travel. Recoil is not much either. There is a wide variety of good firearms. The Glock is cheap and reliable but has that ugly word, plastic, in it. But it shoots and a lot of people like it. Practice a lot and then some more.

RE: Rattle snake bite

Going into brush or suspect country why don't more people wear at least leggings. They cost little and then there is the Mil surplus hard plastic leggings. I shopped last fall for snakeboots and they have some nice and light 16 to 18 inch high models in stylish camo, at Cabelas, Bass Pro and Sportsman Warehouse. I have seen some stylish high boots for women and men of the type before they developed cowboy boots with a lining, forgotten the name, that will stop any snake if it get through the leather. One pai I saw, at some time, in Cowboys and Indians mag were 450 to as high as you wont to go on style and leather.

RE: Wow, What a ride.

I've tried it all. In a week or two I see a pain specialist at the VA. he has helped me a lot. He stopped the Sciatic nerve pain by burning it. I think he talked of doing the same thing in lower back at the base. I fell out of a helicopter and my cossix and tail bone and lower disc too a beating, on the skid and then the PSP. It put a fine crack across the cossix. Day after day night it is constant pain including the disc in neck and electricity aling shoulders , dead pinkie finger and muscles in hand and wrist and along left arm and constant tennis elbow. Right is getting involved. VA won't fix anything. I've found an outside who did independent emg on neck back and arms and hands. It wasn't a pretty picture. I hope they can fix the disc and solve some problems. White cell count is up at ever check. That and the constant itching and fogginess and exhaustion have me worried to when I'm alert enough to worry. It may be too late.

RE: Limiting steering wheel?

I thought there was a towing guide online from Motorhome Magazine. I can't find it this evening. We have some problems with the laptop.

RE: Financial advisors

Never spend today what you can put off til tomorrow. When you see something you want to buy, wait til tomorrow to buy it or few days. You will find you spend a lot less. Many things are just "I gotta have it" but next day you will see a better deal, something nicer, or realize you don't really want or need it.

RE: St Paddy's Day

Never heard of Skittles in reference to St Paddy's Day, around here it's the green beer with Corned Beef & Cabbage. Grand son to be was looking over my shoulder and said don't forget the skittles. Didn't get a chance to ask him since then.
