RE: Black Hills in October

Spearfish had a great City park.

RE: Highway 80

Is there some particular issue you are worried about? Looks like a pleasant drive. No switchbacks or treacherous curves. Surface looked good in 2018. Four lane divided and several stations and such. Elevation looks to be approx. 950 to 1250 feet. Long hills with very slow elevation change as you go up. We certainly like this kind of ride

RE: Plain Black Wrapper

Why would minimum markings or no markings for that matter be entrapment? Check your legal definitions. Not even close on that one

RE: Batteries not charging {Resolved}

Not worried about semantics. Likely there is a reset button on the "device".

RE: Caulking Roof to gutter

"That must have been more than a couple of years ago, because Forest City wants closer to $2,000 to do it now." WOW! It was several years ago 2002 maybe? I remember thinking it was too much back then. I sure would choose to do it myself now!

RE: Caulking Roof to gutter

After a roof inspection (2000 Itasca Horizon) in Forest City several years ago the tech told me the roof needed re-caulking. They would do it for $400 or I could do it myself just for the price of the caulk. I chose the 'do it myself' route. I cleaned the roof and gutter with an alcohol based window cleaner and did the caulk job. Decided I did not want to ever go thru that again and bought a 4 inch wide roll of EBond tape. I split the tape and then cleaned again. Marked a straight line above the gutter edge on the roof. Let the factory edge of the tape follow that line and the width of the tape follow the roof line and lap onto the side of the gutter next to the body of the coach. This was the fiber tape and had to be painted with the UV resistant paint. We kept that coach until 2008 and the EBond was as strong as the day I put it on. Great stuff

RE: Residential Fridges

Had a door open when we turned on first trip. There is a "lock" at the base of the two top doors that is simply a small plastic pin that slips in place when the base it sits on is slid sideways (looks very fragile) My solution is a bungee cord. Not nearly as fragile

RE: Bar Harbor Campground

We have stayed there. We were just traveling w/o reservations and they told us the best time to get a site was in the AM when people were checking out. We showed up and the guy at the desk said there were several sites coming open and to drive around until we found one, claim it and then come back to the office to check in. It is not the most picturesque CG we have stayed in, but we only slept there. Back then it was 40 dollars and no credit cards. "Yes Mr IRS Man, it was slow this season and we really didn't make much money." ;) Not sure if that was for a tax dodge or just to simplify books and finances. Nice folks

RE: I24/I75 Interchange in Chattanooga, Tn Construction

Wasn't there a huge chunk of a bridge that fell off at that location a while back? It has been a pain for the past several years, but I don't know about Mexican trucks - especially that far from the border.

RE: Drawing water from a lake

The OP has to make his own choices I guess, but I will offer an observation. For years on US129 from Cleveland Ga to Blairsville, Ga (very curvy and mountainous) there were a couple or three places where clear and cold spring water flowed out of a crack in the rock. One place even had a steel pipe and an enclosed stone trough that held a few inches of water in it. You could see cars with license plates from metro-Atlanta stopping and filling plastic jugs with the 'spring' water. These places are no longer there. The 'healthy' water was likely not has healthy as they figured. With the wild hog population, deer and bear population continuing to grow, the giardia has also grown. The GSMNP has signs posted cautioning visitors from drinking the ground water there for the same reason. If you intend to do this, at least add a few ounces of chlorine to the tank before you fill it.

RE: Motorhome side mirror replacement/repair

Interesting question. Check around local truck stops. Several in the Ga/Fl border area have chrome shops. The shiny layer got on there somehow

RE: Rafter J-Bar / Custer / Rushmore

Custer State Park is celebrating the 100th anniversary of their founding this year. Google it, but I believe it is in July. They are having a get-together for all former employees and volunteers

RE: Help me splain to my granddaughter

"Dog trot house was a Cracker house where the kitchen was separated from the other living areas so as to keep kitchen heat out of the other spaces . Dogs would lay there looking into the kitchen hoping the cook would drop something ! All over the South this was common , rich and poor a like . " My grandfather used to talk about 'the cook room" meaning the kichen. I have seen old houses with the dog trot with little more than a walkway wth a roof. Papa said the cook room was off to end in case it caught fire from the wood fires used to cook back then that maybe the whole house would not burn down when they were trying to put it out.

RE: Towing Over Wolf Creek Pass

Interesting you should post this . We have friends on a extend tour of the western US right now. They towed over Wolf Creek Pass this weekend in a snow. Small trailer towed with a Tacoma. She said it was white out conditions most of the time and they were barely moving, but afraid to stop for fear of getting snowed in up on the mountain. The last time we crossed the Pass, we were heading into Pagosa Springs. Our friends were headed the other way. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2383524715041584&set=basw.AbqP7jcjFj8ErDQbZMimY2Cx2ZFJ5l4bJmnAD297MyvD0Ugq hope this works

RE: Vultures!

So help me here, what is the reason they are doing this? I know, they aren't saying. Do they think it is a food source? Does it digest? Is it deadly? Does it bounce when they poop? ;) ;) ;)
