RE: Where did Mooney go?

I always remembered this post by Mooney about his 2 cylinder water cooled generator. What a power plant... Mooney's generator.

RE: VIDEO: Funnest Thing I've Done In A While - RZR 1000 Ride

I watched this twice and seen nothing fun other than two guys riding without helmets ??????? Geeze those things are horribly loud and obnoxious. We had a bunch of people in ATVs zoom through our formerly peaceful campsite and throw up a lot of dust recently. I have a very dim view of ATVers after that experience. Please don’t paint all of us ORV enthusiasts with the same brush. There are a lot of us who follow the rules, care for the environment as well as care for our neighbours. There will always be people that don’t follow rules, regulations, care about the environment or their neighbours, it doesn’t matter the type of activity or the location. Soup. The RZR 1000 is not really loud. It has a muffler, spark arrester, The water cooled engine is in an engine compartment, There is a large skid plate on the underside. It is not manufactured to be loud. Others may not be built as such or modified to be loud. Where we were riding is far from any camping or people. the noise in the video is from wind, rough road, and engine noise combining to make a loud sound which is not much different than your truck or jeep driving dirt roads. Sure, there are those who are not respectful of others but most people will do the right thing for the circumstance.

RE: VIDEO: Funnest Thing I've Done In A While - RZR 1000 Ride

We use our buggies any opportunity we can. With full unrestricted plates, we get to go where many UTV’s cannot. This time, the trailer is hauling our Sonic... Which one's the Sonic? https://www.bertsmegamall.com/fckimages/jlaudio-save.jpg

I watched this twice and seen nothing fun other than two guys riding without helmets ??????? Thanks for the feedback. I'll make a note of that. Riding an ATV through the forest is not fun!

VIDEO: Funnest Thing I've Done In A While - RZR 1000 Ride

Riding the forest roads in a Polaris RZR 1000. Riding the forest roads in a Polaris RZR 1000 up to a retired Observatory on the Manastash Ridge. It is amazing how this ATV can eat the road like nothing I've ridden in before. It was handy to find cell service up there miles from anywhere after days of being camped with no connection to the outside. Which is the way it's supposed to be. Need an ATV? The Polaris RZR is Amazing! Enjoy the ride, see some scenery.

Truck Camper Fridge Vent Cover Replacement _ Bonus @ 11:00

Truck Camper Fridge Vent Cover Replacement _ Bonus @ 11:00 Minutes A help video showing how to replace an old cracked discolored fridge outside access vent panel. The new panel and frame are made from a more flexible plastic. The new white cover panel looks much nicer. I had to do some simple modification to make the new panel frame fit the existing opening using a multitool saw. I just used DICOR lap sealant to seal the frame edges applying a thick bead around the perimeter of the cover, then setting it in place, screwing it in, then cleaning off the excess caulk with a finger, trowel, and cleaning up the remaining with paper towels and paint thinner. Looks much better. At 11:00 minutes is bonus footage that gives a clue for the next possibly expansive project. Enjoy and take care...

RE: The new S&S and Red Repair/Restore/Upgrade Thread..part II

We're planning on removing the oven and replace it with just a cook top since we haven't used the oven ever. That would free up some room for the second battery along with a little weight. Doing the research on the mod now...will be doing ALOT of looking and measuring tomorrow. I couldn't do without my oven. I've done prime rib, chicken, bread, cake, pie, to name a few in the oven. Makes good storage for cooking items too... Don't forget the pizza. Scratch built and store bought...

VIDEO: The Messy Campsite!

VIDEO: The Messy Campsite! We were scoping out potential future campsites and found one that had great promise. Next to the river, flat, sizable open space. Things were looking good. Upon closer inspection, prior abuse by other campers became more and more apparent. Manageable amounts of burnable garbage left behind wasn't much more than an annoyance. The real problem was the amount of toilet paper to be seen laying on the ground the area randomly spaced throughout the underbrush. There are better ways to deal with human waste such as the 5 gallon bucket system featured in the video. This campsite is off my list for now.

VIDEO: Fishing In The Gifford Pinchot NF At Walupt Lake

VIDEO: Fishing In The Gifford Pinchot NF At Walupt Lake We caught a bunch of little 8-10 inch Rainbow and Cutthroat Trout using spinning rods, casting bubbles, and flies. The bigger fish are farther out and deeper, boat required. We fished in the sun, we fished in the pouring rain from about 6 till dusk. Bring a good flashlight for the trail back. We let everything go since they were just little ones and we had plenty of chow in the truck camper. The fish were good little scrappers on the line. There is swimming but the water is cold being at about 4300 feet. Bugs not too bad but it is getting later in the season. Enjoy, J&K

RE: Gifford Pinchot National Forest - Day 3

Yes thermal waters enter the Lamar River. Anyway it is a great time to visit. Temps are just right and the animals are becoming active as Fall arrives. I don't mean to downplay chipmunks but..... If you value your wire harness, you'll leave some nuts under the picnic table...

RE: Fan ideas

I have a reversible, 3 speed, rain sensor closing model of Fantastic Vent. Works great. With the solar panel, I can leave it run all day on low blowing in to prevent smells with a window cracked. Works great, takes the edge off on hot days. I actually have 2 with another in the bathroom. Overkill but with both running, I can move a lot of air drying the bathroom after a shower or venting the entire TC fast. If you remove the inner cover of your existing ceiling vent, there may well be 12 volt wiring already in place, there was on my TC when I installed mine. The MAXFAN cover would be nice for rain and ability to drive with the fan open driving, or just get the MAXFAN itself. Good luck! If you want the information, here's an installation video I did installing my bathroom Fantastic Vent fan. VIDEO: Fantastic Vent Fan Installation

RE: Gifford Pinchot National Forest - Day 3

Yawn! I spent the day in Yellowstone, mostly the Lamar Valley. Wildlife consisted of hundreds of bison, several antelope, one Griz crossing the road, Ravens, herds of Elk and more.... I can see chikmunks in my backyard. Been years since I've been to Yellowstone NP. Lamar Valley, Doesn't the river have a section in it where hot springs mix with and heat the river water to a decent temperature. From satellite view, you can see herds of animals grazing in the ancient meandering river channels. Enjoy your time there. PS: I wouldn't underestimate the abilities of a chipmunk!

RE: Gifford Pinchot National Forest - Day 3

One of my favorites is the Morrison Creek CG on the South side of Mt Adams. Morrison Creek CG looks to be burnt down all around it in satellite view. New growth has it's beauty.

RE: Gifford Pinchot National Forest - Day 3

Looks like a super nice CG and site. Unfortunately it's just a little far (and south, we never go S.) for our weekend trips. It's 4 to 8 hours depending on traffic from Seattle. The drive is rewarding itself. Make a reservation or get there midweek.

Gifford Pinchot National Forest - Day 3

VIDEO TR: Gifford Pinchot National Forest - Day 3 I got situated in my campsite, then my friend arrived to start the weekend with hiking and fishing planned. Our campsite had several very persuasive chipmunks we fed and got a laugh watching them scurry about doing their business. The camp host came by and told us we could move to a better site than the one we had. Leveling the TC created a 4 foot climb up to the TC door. The new spot was nice and level, no pole vaulting required to get into the TC. Enjoy!
