RE: Propane Coffee Pot

We don't drink coffee, but bought a small pour-over drip coffee pot for guests. (Search Amazon for Melitta 36 oz. Pour Over Coffee Brewer with Glass Carafe.) Very small, and you boil the water in whatever you already have, so very little additional to take along.

RE: RV dump station Fee - pay if only getting fresh water ?

There are many places in the Southwest where water is scarce and very expensive. It would not be inappropriate for the business owner to charge for water. But, any way you look at it, the business owner gets to decide how he runs his business.

RE: Junk Food Breakfast Cereals

Cheerios and chocolate milk is my indulgence, but only about once every other month. The problem with cheerios is it's loaded with sodium--my mouth feels salty all day. I plan my meals so the rest of the day is sodium-free.

RE: Leaving dog at campsite

I dont think ive ever been in a pay campground that allows any dog to be left unattended, inside or out. I personally would never leave my Akita(who truly doesnt bark- its an Akita Thang). Yes, it can limit me, but that is part of the responsibility i voluntarily took on when I acquired him. It is so nice to hear a voice of reason in a sea of delusional dog owners... Delusional is the idea you cannot leave your dog alone/unattended. My dog stays home every work day by himself for 6-8 hours. He is capable of staying alone at the CG as well. Thanks for yet another example of delusional...

RE: How Often Do you Get Skunked on FCFS Camp Spots?

Hopefully some day I'll be able to retire & have the luxury a lot of you all have which is to arrive at places during the week! I highly recommend it! :) But almost all of us did have to work before, so we know what it's like. That's why I really try not to take up space on the weekend, especially during the summer. (Plus, around Tucson, during the summer I prefer to stay home in the AC anyway.)

RE: How much can we tow with SUV?

Don't forget that 2 adults, 4 kids and a dog also means a LOT of stuff will also go along. They might even want to take bikes for everyone. Factor in at least another 1000 pounds for stuff. It's really hard for me to imagine an suv pulling anything adequate for that many people.

RE: How Often Do you Get Skunked on FCFS Camp Spots?

Darn. I was hoping this post was literally about being skunked. Now that would be interesting! However, being retired, I never arrive at a public (government) campsite between Friday and Sunday. In fact, when I arrive earlier in the week I try to be out by the weekend to avoid the crowds and make room for the weekend warriors. I've never had a problem finding a spot mid-week because, even if the official camp spots are full, there's no problem finding dispersed camping here in the West.

RE: Something we all knew

Not trying to be controversial, but the problem with studies like this is that it is almost impossible to factor in all variables, and too easy to jump to conclusions that may or may not be correct. Something we all know is that pets tend to be a part of more established, traditional family structures. Pets are an expense, so homes with pets tend to have parents that hold steady jobs. So well-adjusted kids growing up with pets might (and probably) is more a result of those kids growing up in more stable family structures, and pets just happen to be a part of that home structure. Pets being in those homes is probably the result of the homes being more stable, not the cause. Statistics are nice, but interpretation of those statistics is extremely difficult.

RE: What do you shut off when leaving for a trip

My wife worked in insurance claims her whole career, and says the most common claim by far is water damage from broken washing machine water hose, and distant second is ice maker water damage, either a broken line or malfunction of the shut-off after it fills the tray. The home doesn't even have to be unoccupied--it frequently happens at night. I do change out my washing machine water hoses every five years, but I don't really do anything (other than adjust the thermostat) when we leave. Our neighbors are great, and check the house daily.

RE: Whirlpool refrigerator

Google ice maker water adjustment.

RE: Watched some MLB last night...

I broke the spectator sports addiction about 25 years ago, and now the whole idea of wasting time watching other people playing a game seems absurd. However, if you like watching MLB and are a T-Mobile user, their Tuesday freebie today is a year of free MLB.com, so get it while it's available.

RE: Tonto National Forrest is closed...

Ducey should have shut Arizona down months ago.Due to fire danger as is being talked about? LOL. I used the "block the idiot poster" option on him a long time ago. I'm only seeing this because you quoted him.

RE: Mountain Home, ID to Elko, NV

I've never done it, but it looks like a fun drive. I'm always looking for alternate routes.. I found a lakeside campground on the border, about halfway. Mountain View Reservoir Campground

RE: I-40 Anything worth seeing

We're museum people, and always enjoy the National Cowboy & Western Museum in Oklahoma City.

RE: Pet Peeves long road trip

Almost 50 years ago my driver's ed teacher said, "Always remember that every driver on the road thinks that they are the best driver ever, and that no one else knows how to drive." It seems that 50 years later that is still true.

RE: The worst Post Office in the USA... your vote

As our civilization crumbles in front of our very eyes. I bet old geezers have been making statements like that for thousands of years!

RE: Wi Fi boosters

WiFi boosters can, in many cases, boost the signal you receive. They cannot boost the speed. (Maybe minor increase because less re-transmission of packets, but negligible.) So you will receive a better connection to slow internet speed.

RE: Any good/cheap electric razor for camping?

I got the previous model (3000) about 6 months ago for travel, and liked it so well I use it every day now. Battery lasts about 3 weeks for me. Norelco 3100
