RE: Badlands & Custer SP. Difference in June vs August?

"If it were me I wouldn't hesitate to go in June rather than August. August is usually very hot while June is very pleasant. No comparison. Late August will be a bit cooler but still can be very hot and humid. Late June can be getting pretty warm but is almost sure to be much nicer than late August. " I agree. With the prairies greening up the temps still relatively cool your stay will be much more comfortable in June. August is hot, even in the Hills, but especially in the Bad Lands. FWIW - We really don't have a lot good to say about the Bad Lands. Do the loop and take pictures because there are some interesting formations, but we had people come into CSP when we were there talking about spending a week there. A couple or three hour drive through is all I can see it taking.

RE: route clear or not

Spoke with a UPS driver yesterday. He said the roads that washed out are still closed and the waters are going down, but he had parts of I-95 were still closed in the portion near Charleston. I have no direct knowledge, except to say we will not be going that way for several more days

RE: Member "Mandrake"... ?

Remember him well. Also another funny guy but cannot recall his name. Something like a cartoon of a Canadian Mountie (sp??) and he lived near the 'deepest lard mine in Canada. He had some great stories. He had a horse named Horse. Was it Inspector Fenwick? or something close to that

RE: Cataract?????

I went through the surgery on both eyes nearly a year ago. No problems except the sky was so bright and blue for a while that it actually was painful. My doc for glasses told me I could have the surgery 'now or sometime in the future, but if I wanted to continue with decent vision I would have to have it. They discussed a pair of new lenses - one for close up (reading) and the other for distance. Insurance would not go for this and I was worried about trying to get used to it causing headaches. No problems with surgery as it took only a few minutes and he loaded me up on happy juice and a lot of deadener for the eyes. I did see a bit of red on the first one (not in focus) that I figure was a blood. No pain at all. The second one he did not give me enough for the eye and it kept . I got scolded for that. However now I have to have reading glasses (10 bucks from the drug store)that I need more and more. We will discuss what can be done when I see him again. Get the surgery - you will not believe how much better things will look

RE: USA Sticker Maps - Settle an argument!

http://m.maploco.com/visited-states/ The web site says states visited, but if you are afraid if having to show proof of camping at some state lines, I would forget the whole thing ;) ;)

RE: Hurricane JOAQUIN

Man drowned in Spartanburg yesterday from flooding and the Hurricane has not even got that far north yet. If it does turn up the predicted path this may be another one like the one that washed out Charleston and Myrtle Beach area several years ago. Was it Hugo maybe?

RE: Diesel Particulate Filter and Diesel Emission Fluid

Like Mark we have a 2008 Freightliner Chassis/Cummins. engine with particulate filter. No problem with it. You will see the temp rise slightly and then fall back within a minute or two. I am not sure this is the 'cleaning' process or not. One time we had an icon come on the screen showing something like a puff of smoke - that may have been the cleaning. Sometimes we will travel quite a bit on long trips, then again (health issues) the coach may sit for a few months. I understand the DEF will get stale after it has been opened and added. I don't know about the system as to how it works, but I do move an occasional diesel truck with DEF in my P/T job. Never had any problems.

RE: I65 through Birmingham, AL

They have been working on I-22 for years and still have not completed it. I-20 is on the last phases of reworking at the Georgia line now. I-20 inside the east by-pass is like a war zone and I don't go there unless there is no other way. Only thing worth going downtown for is Dreamland BBQ

RE: Tow tt thru Atlanta

What sailordive says. Be careful and pay attention to the signs that show exits on HOV lanes. Easy to exit when you want to go straight through.

Wireless rear camera

I bought a wireless rear camera set up to continuous monitor the Wrangler we tow. This as done when the old unit died and the RV dealer added a unit that will only come on when the MH is in reverse. I am OK with that, but I would like to see the Jeep on demand. I have the camera mounted and power from running lights on the coach. Then I discover that one of the wireless sending units is different from the other. I cannot tell which one hooks to the camera and which to the monitor. I fear I will do a bunch of work and it will not work. I need some help. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bus-Truck-7-LCD-Rear-view-Monitor-Wireless-Night-Vision-Reverse-Backup-Camera-/321572824516?hash=item4adf3be5c4 The ones I have look very similar to the one shown her as far as the sending units go As you can see, one of the units has a single wire and the other has two. (outside of the power supply wires) Does it make any difference which of these the camera is connected to? Brief question, but I hope you see what I am talking about

RE: What are Policemen are made off

Wore that badge for 27 years. Went from raw rookie to detective, to detective sergeant to lieutenant running three squads - crime lab/forensics, sex crimes and family violence. There were some guys that were not so great at being a police officer and some that were what we all wanted to see coming when it hit the fan. All of them would risk their own safety when it came to helping the citizens they worked for. Bless and protect them all.

RE: Campground Damage Deposit

Had a site just up the street from us in a state park in N Ga. We were walking and smelled this nasty, nauseous smoke as we passed an empty site. The pigs that were staying there had thrown a pile of crappy diapers and cans on the fire and these were smoldering. There was a dumpster on their way out, but this bunch had to dump it on the fire. This is the same quality of people who raise he77 all night and have a pit bull tied to the steps that lunges at everyone who walks by. More and more we find this kind of behavior in our state parks. It would great to nail their fannies with a fee to clean up that site and all the associated dog poop and human poop

RE: Quail

Fire ants have about wiped out the wild quail here in N Georgia. Over the years I have had some very good dogs and we had a lot of fun walking the open fields and wood lines around here. Fires ants migrated into the country and will kill the baby quail as they hatch. What the ants don't get, the coyotes do. Wish there was a way to bring them back. Loved hearing the 'bob white' call as the day ended.
