RE: Loss of Credit Cards and other Important Items

Wow, what a bummer. Sorry for your loss :( How about one of those GPS tracker tiles? I can't imagine splitting up my various cards/id etc. I split up my car key, trailer keys and house keys. Resulted in never having the keys I needed in the place I needed them :-P They're all on one ring again. Turns out bikers are a lot smarter then I realized. I took your advice on protecting my wallet with a chain: https://i.imgur.com/xZWO3Mf.jpg

RE: Need a new vacuum cleaner

Shark Rocket - Got mine at Costco for around $150.00. Two position switch; one for bare floors as it stops the beater bar brush. I see Amazon has it for $158.00. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/717QX2oueTL._AC_SL1500_.jpg height=500 Impressed with what a good little sucker this has been and how much easier and better vacuumed stairs have been. I've seen a lot of recommendations for cordless stick vacs from Walmart - might want to check those?

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Yeah, an office going away party was attended by one employee who was sick; "Awww, it's just a cold". Turns out it was COVID resulting in four other employees getting it and the business shutting down. I thought the COVID would be a good educational opportunity for folks and people with colds and flu would learn to avoid contact, stay home etc. Guess I'm a dreamer.

RE: BetterWeigh Mobile Tongue Weight and Payload Scale

I'm going with the "snake oil" crowd. I've watched 2 or 3 YouTube videos where users tested it and decided to use the CAT scales. I may use the bathroom scale method just for a fun comparison.

RE: Solar Questions

OMG - A DIY battery guy, love it! If your just getting your feet wet check out his guy, I believe he is the go to guru when it comes to this kind of stuff. https://www.youtube.com/user/errolprowse Oh, when you make your battery bank, be sure to post your notes/method and a photo or two.

RE: Love my Fithwheel but looking for more...

Just be sure your truck is set up for a truck camper. Nothing less than an F350 is best. Awww c'mon! I had a cabover on my '76 Datsun pickup. I wonder what I could stuff in the bed of my F-150 today? https://i.imgflip.com/2pw05v.jpg 10 Best Truck Campers for the Ford F150

RE: A drone while camping

I have a Phantom 4 Pro, never flown over a campground, but have spied on all my neighbors here in English Ranch - take a look! http://flashalexander.com/piwigo/_data/i/upload/2019/11/26/20191126095812-c9338320-me.jpg width=500 I've heard great things about the Mavic, and Costco has those and the Mavic Mini, which also takes amazings video and stills. For RVing, I think smaller would be better for storage and ease of setup. My setup takes some time so becomes a limiter - I don't fly it much. The CSU Hughes Stadium was torn down since the university built its new stadium. So sad, here it is a couple months before it disappeared forever. http://flashalexander.com/piwigo/_data/i/upload/2020/04/08/20200408150613-eaa95376-me.jpg I haven't tried scouting out potential off grid campsites yet and wonder how feasible that would be. I learned early on with my neighbors, letting them see the screen together with me as I fly alleviated all the 'spy' considerations they have. It just isn't possible :) FWIW, I'm licensed by the FAA and the drone, of course, is registered. When you shoot it down, look for my business card in the battery compartment and give me a call :p

RE: Any runners around the campfire?

Wow, I resemble your remarks! I was getting to old and slow for hockey so turned to running and now at 68 I'm running half marathons. For weight loss you will want to run in your "aerobic zone" and run longer distances. Pushing at 85% is great, once a week when used in interval training. Seriously, come up with a training program that will help you stay focused and give you more running health bang for your buck. My wife and I both train together where we have a day for interval training, a day for our long run and put in what we call "junk miles" in the days inbetween. Note that running every day is not such a bright idea since the body requires rest between those workouts that tax the body. On our junk mile days we're running what is known as a recovery pace; slow enough and short enough distance that it gets the blood moving and allows the muscles to recover. For such a simple sport there is a lot to it that doesn't meet the eye, or expectations. There are many books on the subject and I advise you pick up a few. They all coach the same things from varying points of view. Sadly, most authors are Olympic runners/coaches whose expectations and workouts are geared more for pro athletes - but the science still applies, just not the speeds/distance. Here are some book suggestions: 80/20 Running Stronger Training Heart Rate Training Paperback (easy read) Run Walk Run Method by Jeff Galloway The Ultimate Beginners Running Guide: The Key To Running Inspired Plenty of running resources on the web. Check out Active.com and Runner's World. We haven't even gotten into shoes yet! I'll have a lot to say when we get to that topic! http://flashalexander.com/piwigo/_data/i/upload/2019/09/25/20190925123629-66f0e7c2-me.jpg width=500 BTW, your sub 9 minute mile pace is pretty impressive and bodes well for your running future, especially if you decide to jump into a 5K or 10K race :B

RE: Have You Installed Your Own Slide Topper?

I would love slide toppers, but what does everyone do in the winds? We get horrible winds where we camp. Camp somewhere else and get slide topper from Amazon. Unless you're into windsurfing. https://i.pinimg.com/736x/14/41/44/14414495db8da2034aeba2dde1ac0d65.jpg height=420 width=640
