RE: Has anyone seen this Monolith?

^^^^^^ The stash the millionaire hid many years ago was found earlier this year. https://www.foxnews.com/us/rocky-mountains-hidden-treasure-chest-found

RE: Blackstone 22" griddle for $99 at Walmart!!

I have the 17 inch blackstone. It's fine, but it only has 1 burner. I want to buy a 22 inch blackstone to give me the versatility of 2 burners, 2 control knobs, and thus 2 different heat zone temps. Oftentimes when cooking different things on the same grill, one items needs a certain temp and another item requires a different temp. That's why I want to replace my 17 inch. Eggs need a lower temp than bacon or sausage, etc. Just a little food for thought, pun intended.

RE: Salt Lake to Albuquerque on a 40 Pusher then to Florida.

US 550 is a mighty fine highway, no issues. There are not a lot of services between Bloomfield to Albuquerque so make sure you have plenty of fuel. There are places to get fuel, of course, but I prefer fresh fuel from high volume sellers. Just me, personally, but I'd take I-40 from Albuquerque towards Amarillo, jump off onto US 287u (very good road) towards Dallas-Fort Worth. I'd cut just south of DFW to miss that mess. From there you could work your way down to I-10, or just pickup I-20 eastbound to Shreveport LA and head to FL. Best wishes to you, have a safe and enjoyable trip.

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

There are now 3 companies transporting your rv to the usa while you fly. One is out of Blaine,another in Quebec and one in Ontario. All are fully booked. As it gets colder more transporters will appear. I make no comment as to whether this is right,wrong or dangerous. I saw a news program about that. The reporter said a Canadian transport company moves the Canadian RV across the border into the USA near Plattsburg NY and parks it. The Canadian owner flies from Canada into Plattsburg on a puddle jumper plane, clears Customs, then goes to their RV, takes care of business there, then gets in their RV and takes off to wherever they want to go. The reporter said it cost about $1,600 to move the RV across the border. All perfectly legal.

RE: 12 Volt/120 Volt Portable Air Compressor

Viair is the brand. Extremely well built and reliable. I'll recommend one that hooks up to the battery rather than the cigarette lighter/charging thing. Go to Viair dot com, they have lots of different models. Choose one based on the PSI you want, etc. Also sold on amazon dot com.

RE: Food!

We are tired of everything! Fast Food is enemy number one. I have ate enough hamburgers, hotdogs, pizza, steak, ham, and everything else. I want something different! If I had the energy I would open a restaurant and call it Something different. Anyone who ordered a burger, might be banned for life? Out here in the desert especially the options are even more limited Micky Ds and Cracker Barrel. I know the menue by heart! Don'' ask me though. Wife isn't into cooking, on the road this trip. I don't believe a steak wold whet my appetite after a week, right now. I want something different. What is it and where can I get some...within 50 miles??? Where are you? You don't have to say exactly, but a close enough yet still vague description will help to identify and suggest what foods might be available in that area. Here are some ideas: Fish Tacos, Beef Stroganoff, Shepherds Pie, Goulash, Chili, Green Chile Stew (New Mexico dish). White Chicken Chili, or beef chili, or turkey chili, etc. Chicken Pot Pie. Stuffed Bell Peppers. I have no idea where you are located, but my local Costco makes, from scratch every other day in their kitchen, Stuffed Bell Peppers. I love it, buy one every 10 days or so. It's really good. Ham and Beans, with Cornbread, and even with Fried Potatoes. Calzones are good. Fish dinners, Halibut, Catfish, Salmon, etc the list goes on. Don't eat Talipia, they are usually farm raised and nasty and not healthy. Otherwise Tilapia would be fine. Stuffed chicken breasts. My local Sprouts Grocery makes them from scratch and puts them in the fresh meat case. Take home and bake it. Mighty fine. Macaroni & Cheese. Variants include adding Green Chiles, I like to chop up a Brat and add, also a mild hot link like Earl Campbell Hot Link (the regular, not the Red Hot one) Go pick up Chinese to go, get the lunch specials, in fact get an extra for the next day or so. Cheap and good. When all else fails, just make breakfast, no matter what time of day it is. Chicken Salad. Got a Crock Pot? It's the original Set It And Forget It cooking thing. Get the crock pot out, throw in a whole chicken, add a bag of frozen veggies, later throw in a tube of biscuits. Great Dinner. Just Google that. You'll love it. Save the broth, make home made chicken soup.

RE: Food!

Maybe it's time to go vegan? ;) I’m a ‘second hand vegan’ ........ Cows eat plants, I eat cows. The plants are purified as they pass through the cows, that makes them even safer ....... That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Kent Rollins, the Cowboy Cook, said the same thing, slight variance in words. Go to YouTube and watch Kent Rollins cooking videos. He is a great personality.

RE: Recommendations on portable flat-top griddle

I have the 17 in Blackstone, it has only 1 knob/heating control. I am looking to get the 22 inch Blackstone because it has 2 knobs/heating controls, allowing me to cook things on one side at one temp, and the other side I can have a different temp. Makes it especially better to cook breakfast.

RE: Cast Iron pan seasoning Question

Quit reseasoning and just cook in it. Cook in it. Rinse and repeat. Just keep cooking in it.

RE: Eu2000i muffler cleaning ideas?

Its $135 for a new one. Mine is completely blocked. If you blow on it, nothing goes through. Any ideas? What is the internal structure of these things? Is it just a cavity or is there like a zig-zag path? $135? Really? Where are you getting that price for a replacement spark arrester? I just did a google search and found them for around $20-ish. Under $17 bucks Original Honda Part You might mosey over to YouTube and in the search box enter how to clean your Honda Eu2000i spark arrester. Seems to be some good videos there.

RE: Ham radios

You can rent a satellite phone, and this option may work very well if you don't need to own one and will only be off the grid, so to speak, rarely.

RE: Tow Truck Policy

I think I'd definitely check out Allstate for their road side service. Good luck to you.

RE: Tow Truck Policy

Good luck to you, I'm sure that when the vehicle gets to the place it will all get worked out. Vehicle troubles are always a headache.

RE: Tow Truck Policy

Whoa wait a minute!!! Is the vehicle needing towing your RV? Or not? I'm reading this as a Jeep needing some sort of repair. Is this indeed a Jeep? Does Jeep make an RV? I'm confused. And further, and I'm assuming here, if the shop that serviced the vehicle screwed up or the part is defective, they should be paying to get it towed to them for repair. Your post is getting me to think that you're indicating the problem is with Good Sam, but it may be someone else? Do you have AAA for automotive services including towing? Insurance company covering towing? Please clarify your situation. And BTW I'd pay $45 out of my pocket, up front, to avoid walmart at any and all costs. If you need towing back to the Jeep dealer, and have to pay the $45, any reputable dealer should refund the $45 to you if the service department is at fault. Thanks

RE: I-40 Anything worth seeing

I'll second the National Cowboy Western Heritage Museum in OKC. I will HIGHLY recommend the National Atomic Museum in Albureque. It's just a couple miles south of I-40 on Eubanks road, and it's katty-korner from a Costco so you can reprovision supplies and food, and gasoline, there. I kid you not, it is absolutely worth the visit. Allow several hours, even 3 or 4, to see it. They also have a 9 acre outside museum of planes and missiles and such. I stop every time I go through Albuquerque.

RE: Walmart overnight and running the generator

Hopefully you have a very quiet generator and not one of those that are not relatively quiet.
