RE: "Boondockers Welcome"

My experience with BW has been very positive. Always terrific friendly hosts. Most are RVers themselves. We have stayed at farms, hobby farms, houses with room for our 42' 5th wheel. Many have electric from 110 to 50amp and water, and some even have sewer. Most allow multiple night stays from 2-5 nights. There is usually a $5-$10 charge for hookups. We have stayed at a few Harvest Hosts, but you are limited to one night, without hookups. HH purchased BW but they are operated as separate entities, although they combined the apps into one, showing BW with different icons. At renewal we chose to only renew BW. It works better for our needs. Even though all of our BW stays have been memorable, two stand out. We stayed at a hobby farm in northwest Wisconsin with all kinds of animals. One of his specialties was rescuing pot belly pigs. I guess after the cuteness wears off, people with pot belly pigs might become less interested. In Pensacola, FL. we stayed an private residence with a large backyard with full hookups. They were Christmas light people. The kind that you'd drive to just for the show. We were there for the Blue Angels homecoming in early November 2021, and the homeowner was just starting to put up the lights for his 'show'. Choreographed music, Santas everywhere, roof lights, lawn lights, etc. It was fun to watch the process. We have talked about taking a cross country trip just staying in BW sites for 2-5 nights at each stop. Mostly small town America with great people. Not sure about any pressure to become a host. We have done wverything through the web site. No pressure at all.

RE: Tires---Ouch

I've had good luck with Costco. There is always a promotion of $100-$150 off for 4 tires, different brands each month. I just checked for my truck (2009 GMC 1 ton DRW). Michelin Defender - LT225/75R17. $846 total, after discounts, mounting, etc. Might be worth a membership ($60).

RE: New to Chromebook: very basic question

Btw, CTRL-ALT-/ brindgs up a new window with keyboard shortcuts. Very handy, especially if you're not using a mouse.

RE: New to Chromebook: very basic question

A google search using Chromebook without a password should give you some guidance. Regarding windows and tabs; the top right of the browser window should have three verical dots. Clicking that will give you options of new tab, new window, etc.

RE: Air Compressor

We purchased a DeWalt 165 PSI pancake. Even this one takes a bit of time to get to 110.

RE: Am I over the Max 5fer length?

Full timing in a 42' Alpine. Zero issues, even in small campgrounds. After reading thru the article you posted... 1st - is that really from 10 years ago? 2nd - it appears that most of the 40' restrictions are for trailers. Not sure how anybody would treat a 5th wheel, and can't imagine the authorities would care.
