RE: Is Facebook killing this site?

We use FB for family stuff ... RV net for RV stuff. That's it. Same here. The problem I find with this site is it's not that user friendly. A few updates like being able to post a picture directly from your desktop would be useful.

RE: Dealing with campground reservations

Can't give much advice on the reservation front (I've always been a planner) but I'd make a list of places you feel you didn't spend enough time at and plan another visit. I know some people don't like to go back to places they've already been but I've found it may take multiple trips to fully appreciate locations. When we had our 5th wheel our truck broke down. The repair shop gave us permission to stay overnight on their property (fortunately we didn't need it). You run the risk of no availability even under "normal" conditions. You can try parking lots in places such as Wal-Mart, Elks, etc., if you really get stuck. Also you could contact the local authorities to get help. If you want to keep your vacation as stress-free as possible it might be the tune to stay more local. Keep in mind, though, up here is as busy as anywhere else. With all of New England, NY and PA close by there's a multitude of possibilities. We do a lot of adventure travel now but sometimes there's great comfort and relaxation in "being a tourist in our own backyard" as the saying goes.

RE: Obesity in America

it should not be used as a diagnostic tool. That's laughable because that's exactly what they use it for-to "diagnose" whether or not you are obese. It's also used as a basis to determine what conditions and diseases they think you might get. It's an indicator but not an absolute. We have to be careful we don't interpret the 'exceptions' as the 'rule. In terms one's health, that is where the considered advice of our doctors come to play. We are ALL exceptions to that "rule". Weight is only a component of health. I think the medical community spends too much time trying to put us all in little boxes instead of looking at each as individuals. I'm certainly not a medical expert but having suffered a life-threatening illness and dealing with a number of chronic conditions makes me take a lot of their "guidelines" with a grain of salt.

RE: Too hot

That is really funny. Define too hot. For some 80 is too hot for me if it is under 75 Im wearing jeans and looking form my jacket, so 100 is comfortable for me At 100 you can put me in my grave, dry heat or not! At about 55 I start thinking about a light jacket. Winter coats are reserved for walking the dog and other outside activity. Not a fan of cold weather but I'll take it any day over the heat. Yup, you can't define "too hot".

RE: Obesity in America

BMI isn't a joke. In most cases, it shows a true situation; it isn't working only if we talk about some bodybuilders or athletes or some rare rare cases. And doctors know that. Actually more doctors are now thinking it is. It IS a complete joke as in it's not representative of the entire picture. My son is 5'7" and about 175 which puts him in the overweight category. He's extraordinarily well-muscled in his thighs and chest and has little-to-no fat elsewhere. He is not overweight. Both Canada and the UK are encouraging their doctors to stop using that measurement for multiple reasons. Weight is not a "one-size-fits-all" condition.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

The scams are old news. They started months ago. Just get a shot-no need to buy a card!

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Massachusetts is now doing drop-in shots at Wal-Mart. At this point in time I think it's the way to go. For some people the less time they have to think about something they are afraid to do the better. Some will just respond on a whim. Although we may not reach herd immunity the "experts" are saying as time goes on COVID will be able to be managed much like a regular flu as they expect any new cases after a certain point will be mild. That said, herd immunity is still our best option.

RE: Your opinion on a tax return question...

I can't imagine doing much by snail mail any more. With online banking, bill paying, etc., you get instant notification that everything went through AND you have proof. I agree with Pitch-if you mail it you don't have any way to track it unless you pay for POD or POS. At this point I don't think either way is "safer". If they're gonna get ya they're gonna get ya. TurboTax is very easy to use, as are most online payment systems. I would just sit and wait at this point. And wait. And wait.

RE: Free Immunizations to Tourists

Back to Alaska-we will be there next month. I'll be checking while going through the airport to see if anyone is taking them up on it. Should be interesting. As far as 46 goes, what he does is totally irrelevant. Totally.

RE: Free Immunizations to Tourists

Galvanizd, your words: Yup, just get that shot and carry your proof. Course you still can't travel, got to wear a mask, can't gather in crowds, have to isolate, can't use the gym, playground, schools....but yeah get vacinated. Still not true. Restrictions somewhere but not everywhere. Absolutely you should get vaccinated. Until enough do those restrictions stay in place.

RE: Your opinion on a tax return question...

Didn't know anyone used Snail Mail for State/Federal Returns any more For amended returns you have no choice, or at least in my case. D3500 you are going to be waiting a LONG time to get your return back. The IRS acknowledged they received my return in June/2020. The acknowledgement came in January. They still have not reviewed it. I would call the IRS and ask them what you should do. Yes, they answer the phone. Yes, the workers are pleasant and knowledgeable.

RE: Free Immunizations to Tourists

Galvanizd, that may hold true in Mexico but not here. Don't have to isolate unless you've been exposed, gyms are open, playgrounds are open, restaurants have indoor seating, we can travel by plane, train and automobile. Schools are open for in-person learning in many states and the crowd restrictions, etc., are being lifted. As far as the masks and vaccinations-that's just plain respect. Respect for others. It's an awesome concept.

RE: Inconsiderate People

Not sure a call to police for loud party is ever the best idea. Bad manners should never cause risk of death. If that's your philosophy then why bother having law enforcement at all? Any encounter can turn out bad. The bad behavior will continue if no one tries to stop it. You do the best you can but sometimes it's beyond your control. It's like not standing up to a bully-if there's no repercussion for their bullying it never ends.

RE: Inconsiderate People

It's not just apartments. It's RV parks, neighborhoods and basically any type of living arrangement that exists. The up side to RVing is you can move your domicile if necessary.

RE: Free Immunizations to Tourists

Some states are now offering walk-in clinics. At this point I think that's a great idea. Some people just don't know their schedules and to have to be somewhere at specific date and time is difficult. And some people just can't plan to save their lives LOL!

RE: Too hot

Define "too hot". For me much above 70 and I start to get uncomfortable. My sister doesn't get "too hot" until about 80 or so. Dry heat IS very different than wet heat. The two times I've been there it's been very dry. AND very hot-over 100 degrees in July/August.

RE: Evacuation Insurance
