RE: charging us for air

Hi, I think they would charge us for air we breath if they could figure out how to do it. http://freecampsites.net/all-access-to-public-lands-will-require-a-fee/There should definitely be a substantial usage fee for "public" lands for people who are not citizens, and hence taxpayers, of the country that owns, manages and maintains those public lands. If I was to go to Canada, I would expect to pay to use Crown Land. Foreign visitors should have to pay to access US Forest Service, BLM, National Park and other lands paid for by the US taxpayer. That would be fair. And we do...we pay taxes on everything we buy while in the US. Fuel, food, liquor, camping sites, golfing, etc. No, we don't pay income tax but the states we are in are collecting lots of CDN bucks. As do visitors to Canada, of course. Gary Haupt

RE: Manufactures & Subsidiaries.

One could always just buy and then tear out the interior and build what they want. No, I couldn't do that, but I have seen and read about enough folks that do do this. So..if you had the skills, you could design and build your interior to suit your desires. Just seems to me to be a good choice. Again...not for me...I cannot draw/saw/nail or screw in a straight line. Gary Haupt

RE: Fall trippin is good trippin

I should've posted a pic of the truck...if you see this going by, honk or throw something. http://i40.tinypic.com/vorjmc.jpg]http://i40.tinypic.com/vorjmc.jpg Be into Waterton on Friday the 5th and down to St Mary's on the 7th and then it's Montana and Wyoming. Keeping my eyes open for a Testy Festy, too. Want to try the Rocky Mountain Oysters and am hoping that the Cody party has them. Gary Haupt

RE: Fiberglass body, aluminium repair

Check out boat repair shops. Anything fiberglass can be repaired. x2..fibreglassing is not always 'easy'..but..if you have a yard, you can get the materials and produce your own panel, or as suggested, contact a boat yard. No shortage in SD, or take it across into Mexico. on edit: I had entirely forgotten that my first C had a hole in the front cap when I bought it. Covered up by a decal, and had it repaired by a fiberglass guy right in the RV yard. Yes, on the dealers dime. Anyway...couldn't see it after the repair was effected. Gary Haupt

Most likely you can get a sticker that goes on right over the face of your existing gauge. Gary Haupt

RE: Davis CA Stealth Camping

Just kidding. I found a nice quiet spot close to the University Airport, which is right next to a part of the UCDavis campus. I slept so well I slept right through the 6.0 earthquake at Napa, about 40 miles away. At the conference, I heard others talking about having been awakened by the quake, but I never noticed anything. Again,thanks all for your suggestions, I really appreciated them and found my spot with your help. Good goin. And as for sharing the spot location..you'll not see many on here telling the rest of us where their secret spot is, but they sure want you to tell them yours. Gary Haupt

RE: Alaska or Not?

If we keep the conversation about the gun part cordial and linked to RV'ing, the thread will likely remain open. I am betting that the Moderator is a busy guy deleting comments that are not contributing to longevity. Gary Haupt

Fall trippin is good trippin

Just starting off on a 6 - 8 week wander. We spent the last 6 months wrestling with home renos. Now that that's done we are off. Going to meet up with another RV.Net member in two weeks and spend 3 weeks in Montana and Wyoming. My Red Headed She Devil is flying into Calgary first week of September, and we'll do Waterton, Glacier and then on to horse country. We are hoping for Yellowstone too, but man, camping is sparse after Labour Day..that or grounds are full. Gary Haupt

RE: Alaska or Not?

This is fresh off the press this morning of someone trying to bring a couple of hand guns across the line and he didn't make it. There isn't much as he just made a court appearance the other day, time will tell what happens to him Gun smuggling Soup. And not just someone...but a Judge. Albeit a judge that quit after getting caught shop-lifting, but still..a judge. An X judge. Probably rode a loud Harley too, nasty old man, Gary Haupt

RE: Oregon Trip - Will this work?

I have sent you a pm. Gary Haupt

RE: Davis CA Stealth Camping

k6dcp..I went for a Google drive in the area and I see a lot of no overnight parking/limited to 3 hours signs. I am thinking that if you can scoop an Amtrak spot, I'd shoot for that. It is obviously going to take some pretty clever stealth road craft to find a spot. If you are a member of a church that has a property in the area, you might score a spot. You could approach a church and ask, too, ensuring that you'd be off the parking area by an early hour and not be ON it till after dark, etc. Gary Haupt

RE: Oregon Trip - Will this work?

Eastern Oregon is a big piece of real estate...can you be more specific? The better the weather, the quicker the SP's fill up. Lots of us retired folk head for the coast day after Labour Day. I would think that actually getting a spot will not be big deal, but it might not be the 'best spot'. You are going north to south, I hope. That coastal highway is a hazard if pulling left out of pull-offs to get back into traffic. Everyone accelerates when they see an RV trying to cross back over..mind you, being from Alberta, you'd fit right in. :B The eating is fabulous...the views more fabulous. If you get as far a Brookings, book into the city owned site down by Coast Guard and pay the extra to get a front row spot. Gary Haupt

RE: A new two-stage furnace?

I have an Atwood...what model I have no idea. The one I bought is the Atwood Excalibur 23/34, part number 791831, if anyone is interested. And that's the digital stat and all bits and pieces. If you are going to look for one, maybe talk to the poster from NV..although sales are not Forum allowed, so you'll need to move queeeek. You need to know what model his is and if it would work in your application. And I am not installing nuthin...I have troubles just tying my boots. Marty? At Park RV will have the joy. He figures a couple hours. Seemed like a nice gent on the phone, too. Gary Haupt

RE: A new two-stage furnace?

I am not looking at power conservation somuch, although that never hurts. It was to get a nice flow of warm air, not that blast to the pre-set, then shut-off till it's cold, then back on again..that and quieter. I had an earlier an earlier C and changed to to a digital thermostat for the same reason with no difference, so I wouldn't looking to another digital to improve the situation. Looks like I am just going to have it sent to an RV centre in Cody, Wy and have them do the install. I could have it sent home, but the cost runs the same, after shipping and border fees. Gary Haupt
