RE: Beware of Falling Rocks - WTH

If they didn't post these areas with signs then they are liable. It is one of the hazards of driving on mountainous roads and the signs have no more or less significance than the lines on the the road. They are there to let you know that there is a danger.

RE: Bumper carrier fail..

I seen a fellow one day and his bike rack on the back of his TT broke and he was dragging his bikes on the road behind him with a trail of sparks. I stepped on it and got up beside him and pointed back to try and alert him and he gave me the one finger salute and sped up and pulled away. I turned off the road a little ways up so I never seen the result of his carnage. I also had a neighbor who put one of those carrier things on the back of his fifth wheel and loaded it right up. But then he didn't have a spot for his spare so he mounted it to his rv ladder. It was an 8 hole wheel with tire. Then he wondered why it pulled the ladder off and cursed his crappy built trailer.

RE: Letting Logging Trucks Pass

I think you handled it the correct way. I used to drive log trucks in BC and would appreciate when RVer's or others for that matter would do that. The whole point is that is is safer to help the faster traffic to go by when there is a good spot because they will go by eventually and it may not be Ideal. It is easier to deal with them after they are past then to have them up your butt. Even if you are doing the speed limit if there are ups and downs on the road it can cause the driver behind you alot more gear changes and hence more work less fuel mileage and aggravation. I always blinked my lights at people like you but alot of that has changed over the years like everything else. Really is it that big of deal anyway. Relax and enjoy the ride because most of those truckers wish they were in your shoes.

RE: Solution for damage from flat tires - thoughts?

In my trucking days a blowout could rip off rear fenders installed over the drive tires. It did not seem to matter how heavy they were it would still bend them. Weight is a factor so how heavy can you go?? I agree the industry could have engineered something a whole bunch better from the start. They also could have routed wiring and plumbing differently to avoid expensive damage to occur to those components.

RE: moles

I used to use the spring traps when I had property. They worked well for me, most of the time. I had one mole that could set them off. He had about 4 or 5 tunnels leading off this one hole. I could feel him laughing at me, so I put 4 spring traps one in each tunnel. I finally got him and he was a really big old feller. I always used gloves.

RE: moles

We were in Costco the other day at the meat counter looking at the price of steaks. Another couple were there as well and the fellow said if that mole in my front yard seen the price of this meat he will probably get the heck out of here fast!

RE: Woman and Tattoos

To each their own but, to me it is like buying a piece of clothing that is in style now, and having to wear it for the rest of your life!

RE: RV Stolen Yesterday

We feel for you also. Hopefully the coach will turn up and not be badly damaged. It makes one feel violated. We just lost our little boy Jack Russell a few months back. We lost our girl JR 2 years back. The girl was 12 and the boy was only 11, darned cancer!! We just one month ago got another boy JR and he sure is cute. That said we still miss the other 2 and always will.

RE: Used 3126b engine

If the engine was dusted, wouldn't there be more than one cylinder involved?

RE: Inconsiderate Drivers

I think some of the issue of cars cutting people off is that so many of the new cars you cannot see out of them properly. They build these stupid looking things that don't have a field of vision and then put on back up cameras and lane warning devices and on and on. Why can't they just build a car that you can actually see out of? Why don't people learn how to drive like you had to years ago? Sorry I am Ranting!!

RE: Weird question re: emergency procedures while driving

The sad reality is if the driver passes out or has a seizure, by time the passenger realizes it and reacts it will probably be too late. A co worker of mine was in a horrific accident years ago, when he was driving a semi loaded with logs. He was just meeting a VW Van that started to swerve and it came right into the side of him. He tried to take evasive action and was already in the ditch when the van hit him. He said he seen the driver slumped over the wheel and his wife's terrified expression before impact. The man had died of a heart attack and the woman died instantly upon impact. He said it happened so fast but yet seemed an eternity. He has never forgot the horror of it all. If you have serious medical issues or are not feeling well DON'T DRIVE.

RE: Amazed and Disgusted

You have to admit, if you are not going to pick up your dog poop then it is better to lead your dog onto someone else's site.That would be the code of the ME first people! Just for the record I pick up after my dog.

RE: Used 3126b engine

First off sorry to hear of your trouble.That is a big labor job whichever way you go with it.I don't think that engine can be sleeved. It is a non sleeve engine. I would look at the truck wreckers in the state and see what they may have. they were a popular engine in the medium duty trucks. There is the rv wrecker that I have seen online vision Rv or something like that. Try to google it. They sell complete used engines from RV's with probably lower mileage.

RE: Lipstick at school

That is kind of like the stories about motel and hotel cleaners and how they wash the drinking glasses.
