RE: Florida

Think about the difficult decisions about who will receive hospital care when our health care system is at maximum capacity: young first, then first line responders, then single parents (or caregivers), etc. At the Top of the Covid-19 Curve, How Do Hospitals Decide Who Gets Treatment? If hospitals get overwhelmed, Florida is silent on who survives Thanks for those links - I think the moral of this story is that *if* we go to FL, and *if* one of us gets sick - we drive like mad back to Michigan.

RE: What tickets are Orlando condo tours offering currently?

Have you been watching their covid case numbers?? I'd say an Orlando condo tour would offer a free trip to the ICU......

RE: Simple extension cord

Just a little hint - if your extension cord has to cross a sidewalk, tape it with hi-vis duck tape so nobody trips on it. We used to camp at my Bro-in-laws, parked in the street a la "Cousin Eddie". Fortunately, it was a cul-de-sac; and he had very nice neighbors :-) (no - we did NOT dump the tanks down the storm sewer....LOL!)

RE: Florida

We own a condo near Cocoa Beach - we are watching the numbers and praying they will go down this fall. And they very well might if these idiots would find something else to do instead of congregating and protesting over masks and the like. I suppose they don't wear seat belts, are still texting, and refusing to wear a shirt and or shoes, in the stores as well, eh?. I mean it's always the same 10% for causing hate and discontent at every excuse. Having said all that, it shouldn't keep you from coming down and it's no different here, than anywhere else, if you'll just follow good common sense. Thanks for the rant, by the way! Hey - glad you got that off your chest! :-) I had seen a post from the Brevard Emergency Management folks, telling what our local hospitals had left for capacity in the intensive care units - some hospitals were at or close to 100%. THAT is the number I need to see come down - I'm not going anywhere, where the medical system is close to being maxxed out. I'd *LIKE* to think I could survive it (and Lord knows I'm doing everything in my power to NOT get it) - but if I'm wrong, I'd like to have some backup :-)

RE: Covid 19 warning

And to the OP: I'm sorry about the loss of your friend :-( Those who think this is "just the flu" are tap-dancing on thin ice. My neighbor's daughter (a nurse in a Covid ER wing) just lost a baby at 5-1/2 months: it was fine at the 5-month ultrasound; and two weeks later, had no heartbeat. A second ultrasound revealed "something wrong with the baby's brain" (possible stroke?) and the OB-GYN wrote death due to Covid complications. Clearly, Covid is a blood-borne illness....

RE: Covid 19 warning

I have to admit - when the Canadians don't want us germy Americans - it's pretty embarrassing :-) Right now - we're hoping and praying that Florida's numbers drop as the weather cools and they can spend more time outdoors and hopefully slow the spread? I don't mind winter, but Ed HATES it. "Shovel snow or risk Covid" is where we're at right now....

RE: Dogs sniffing Corona

My guess is the dogs are detecting the presence of proteins produced by the body during inflammation in the response to an upper respiratory virus (any respiratory virus). What I’d like to know is at what point after infection the dogs can detect the infection; if before the onset of symptoms then dogs will be more effective and efficient than temperature checks. Being able to sniff out infection in those who are asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic, would truly be a game-changer. For those people, a thermometer is just a waste of batteries.... and I thought I read/heard that one study showed that 48% of transmitted infections came from those folks.

RE: New Travel Trailer Purchase

RV sales are way up this year and got a feeling many of them will be for sale after camping season if you can wait. On our 4th trailer and never paid close to list price and always make an " out the door " offer or you'll see hidden fees. Wow - I agree with this! I had asked for a price on a new TT that I really liked, from a dealer we had previously done business with - as the salesman rattled off the price, tax, title.... he said because I was a returning customer they would "knock half off the dealer fee/prep/transportation charges of almost $4000". I thanked him for his time - and went to a different dealer who only charged what the State required: tax, license plate, and title transfer.

RE: Weird question/weird dog

OK - tonight my granddog Lucy was visiting - she a 13 lb Boston Terror (that's what Augie says - she can run him right into the ground) and SHE likes standing on the vibration board, too! So it's not just Augie....

RE: Camping with my dog

There's a collapsable cage I just found that he can stay in, in the TT. I'll get one of those, keep the heat and or A/C on. I mean I leave my dog at home for periods of time. It's no different than a camper. I used to live in Texas and there were outside dogs. They weren't even allowed in the house they had a dog house and water. Seemed just fine to me, now I basically baby my dog but as long as the dog is not in desstress and not obnoxiously barking. I don't see the issue. Thanks for all the input the folks. One thing that seems to make a HUGE difference: if you plan on being gone for a few hours - take the dog for a nice long walk first! Tired dogs are good dogs. On our Alaska trip, Hubby and I wanted to take a 1/2-day boat tour, so walked the dogs pretty much around the perimeter of Valdez. When we got back to the RV, the dogs were STILL passed out - clearly they didn't miss us in the slightest....LOL!

RE: Converting a enclosed trailer to a RV TT

If you want an incredible guide - check out FarOutRide.com. Granted, it's a van conversion; but Antoine and Isabelle are both engineers and detailed their build (that they live in full time) in a journal. And the company Sportmobile, offers lots of different floor plans to ponder. Again - they are a van upfitter, but the info should work for a trailer, too

RE: Weird question/weird dog

Mark - that's pretty funny! Maybe she's covering herself with your scent? Augie is at that age where he has to "help" with everything - today we put a door sweep on the bottom of the sunroom door. I dropped the screwdriver - he immediately picked it up and handed it to me. He's kind of handy to have around :-)

RE: Dogs sniffing Corona

This is amazing!! Think of the time/money that would be saved if the medical folks only had to test probable positives?

Weird question/weird dog

Augie is a few weeks away from being a year old - he's an energetic Australian Shepherd. A few weeks ago, I bought a "vibration platform" for some exercise and to help reduce Ed's swollen feet (it's working). Augie LOVES the thing - whenever either of us are using it - he stands right there, too....LOL! I'm going to assume that it's fine - probably not as hard on his body as some of the antics that go on when he's playing with other dogs? He's just one of those "Whatever you are doing, I want to do it, too" dogs. My previous Aussie Ike loved to ride on our SeaDoo - the faster/rougher, the better....

RE: Small Travel Trailers

And I was clearly delusional - there were 3 buyers wanting it, and it sold for over the asking price. And not to me :-( Back to stalking travel trailers.... You are not the only one coviad buying it seems. Im seeing lots of rentals and first timers out and about. Take your time, if you can wait , i think a lot will be on the market next year. I bought one! A 2018 Rockwood Mini Lite 2109S - very similar floorplan to the one I missed. When I called the dealer and asked if it was available, fully expecting a "no" answer, when he said "yes" I said "WHAAAT???" - then apologized....LOL! So now this nice dealer will have exactly ONE used TT on the lot - he admitted that it would be a great feeling in December, but a bit panic-struck for mid-July.
