RE: Compare Microsoft Movie Maker and Adobe Premiere Elements

THANK YOU! The comments confirm my thoughts.

RE: calking job question

I learned early on: have deep pockets or be willing to do it yourself. I've handled many situations, not always as a "professional" would. For most situations, I prefer to learn as I go and enjoy the Minnie Winnie along the way!

Compare Microsoft Movie Maker and Adobe Premiere Elements

Would appreciate any experience, good or bad, you have with these two programs.

RE: RV parks do not honor advertised rate when booking?

I worked for a private RV Park in the Glacier National Park area this past year. We did not have that problem. I haven't experienced what you describe. I usually stay at State and COE Parks.

RE: 1 night in Deming, NM where to stay?

Almost all of the time, when I am enroute to somewhere and need only one night I look for Walmarts, Flying J's, Cracker Barrels and roadside visitor centers. Knowing what the night holds, I walk Baby Girl a lot through the day. Many visitor centers have very nice walking areas. The rates for the places as mentioned above are very good.

RE: Locked out of RV

Ditto's on the HIDE A KEY. On my recent 6 month trip it saved me three times! Now duck taping a keep on a bay door is new to me. I've often thought of having two keys hidden. It's so much easier and prevents stress!

RE: Crossing Intl. Bridge at Nuevo Progresso

I have visited a Dentist in Nuevo Progresso. Do not have a recommendation other than the following. If you are crossing the border to receive services, contact that person/company for a recommendation.

RE: Custom bumper assembly

While this conversation is most interesting, I don't see where anyone has mentioned not hauling items strapped to the ladder. Strapping items to the ladder would be creating a situation waiting for an accident to happen.

RE: Most over rated attractions

The majority of my travels have been within the Continental USA with small excursions to Mexico and Canada. I am most drawn to natural beauty and historic sites. Baby Girl (my Catahoula) and I have recently traveled from East Texas to Mexico and then up to Glacier National Park in Montana (we were 30 miles from the Canadian border). On our way to Montana we visited: Taos Pueblo, Canyon des Chelly, Grand Tetons, and Yellowstone. Never was I disappointed! Two huge surprises: Kingman, AZ and Virgin River Gorge area in NW Arizona. I have never been attracted to "tourist traps". We'll continue to search out, what we believe, to be the best of the best and are currently planning a trip out West in May 2015. I worked this past summer in St. Mary, Montana. We were within walking distance of Glacier National Park and walked the meadows in the shadows of Single Shot and Divide Mountains almost daily. WHAT A SUMMER!!!

RE: Class C overhead movement causing seal failure

Many excellent comments here! I have a 2000 Winnebago Minnie Winnie DL and have "managed" a cabover leak since purchase in December 2011. My shortlist when looking to purchase my Class C was to have a cabover that had nothing in it so that if I had a leak it would be easy to spot and not have to pull out a lot of stuff. Weeks after purchase I had a water soaked cabover. I removed the front part of the foam, dried and put a foam piece in that could easily be removed. I've managed that area for 3 years and have now Eternabonded the seams that the OP is speaking about. I had earlier Eternabonded the roof seams. If I had it to do over I would have Eternabonded everything and not dealt with Dicor (or similar) sealer. In the meantime we have traveled 23 states and over 20,000 miles and have more planned. I continue to get my moneys' worth from the purchase. What a DANCE!!!!!

RE: Does insect spray with DEET 40 work?

Hi Bill. Thanks for your research. I buffed mine out a while back and as you say, "...not like new". I've been considering buying new ones. They'll look much better. And, it's only money! Hey PSW, we also have large skeeters in Louisiana (where I'm from) and have been know to kill them with shotguns. Thanks to everyone for their comments.

RE: A question on the Parvo shot

Thanks to everyone for taking the time to write a response and provide me with excellent information and food for thought. We will be getting all of the shots, including Parvo, for all of "our children" in January. Have a GREAT holiday season!

Does insect spray with DEET 40 work?

Came across a YouTube video recently of a gentleman showing how he cleaned up a clouded headlight using insect repellent that had DEET 40 and a white scrubbie! I must say what he showed was impressive. When he was through his headlamp looked NEW!!! Said he was told of the process by a elderly gentleman at an OReilly's Auto Parts Store in west texas. Has anyone worked with this? Does it work? Anything better? All comments invited. Thanks!

RE: Any experience with Epson Expression printers?

THANK YOU sue.t. I too am an Epson fan. I carried the Epson 2200 over much of the 20,000 miles and 23 states we have covered. Maybe that's why I'm beginning to have trouble. Now retired, I do not have a stream for money to support a large investment in a printer, but would like an effecient, small size, light weight unit. The Expressions seem to fit the bill and Red River Paper (from where I buy my inkjet paper) supports color profiles in the Expression line. All comments are appreciated.

RE: I-10 best choice thru TX?

I-10 through Texas is good. I'd worry more about I-10 between Baton Rouge and Lafayette. We are planning a trip for May and just checked gas prices at Flying J in El Paso. Regular is 2.39; hope it holds. Pay attention to your gas gauge when you get in West Texas.

Any experience with Epson Expression printers?

After 12 years my Epson 2200 printer has bit the dust and I do not want such a huge investment in a new printer. The Epson Expression line has a number of models that are most affordable. All experience with this model line appreciated. THANKS!!!

RE: K&N filters

That's good to know about the V-10. That is the engine I now have in my Winnie. Used K&N on a Dodge Dually...not good, not bad, expensive. Use WIX now and am pleased.

RE: What is best way to protect new awning?

Thanks for the comments! Is it possible for a metal shield to be installed after the awning is installed?

What is best way to protect new awning?

Have just replaced the original awning and roller on my 2000 Minnie Winnie. Do not have a metal protect shield on the top portion that is most exposed to sun. Any ideas on how to best protect it? I was thinking of keeping Protect All heavily applied. Something else? If only I could get 14 years out of the new awning. THANKS!!!

RE: I'm Glad I Have Had My New Shop Building To Finish

Certainly agree with DickA and Nanci L. I won't go into my litany of life. I will say that I am a retired Art Educator who had previously owned a photo studio for 20 years, nationally exhibited with over a dozen solo exhibitions. Several years ago I was hired by a traveling circus and Baby Girl (my Catahoula) and I traveled with a circus through the midwest. We have just completed 4 months at Glacier National Park in Montana: 30 miles from the Canadian border! We're now chilling in the piney woods of East Texas. Our next adventure is to travel out west in a caravan with childhood friends. Yep, there is a lot of stuff going on that will never be changed in our lifetime. Education is the key and that will take decades. Baby Girl is a spokesperson on Facebook for a number of issues and she likes Dicks' comment about telling people to suck a orange. I've very active on Facebook at mikeleblanc413. If interested send me a request. I'm sure you'll enjoy my page. Despite the chaos in the world, life is good! Have a GREAT day!
