RE: Streaming with an iPhone

We use Verizon (senior plan) with unlimited data; iPhone as a hotspot and streaming to laptop; Roku screen mirroring (app) to TV. I'm not terribly savvy about the latest tech solutions, so this may not be the best way, but it works and I can set it up. -Speak

RE: Truck Scalping

People really don't seem to understand the term "supply and demand." Simply put, when there are more buyers than there are of the thing they want to buy, prices rise. Every seller, in a free market (which we supposedly have), naturally wants to sell for as high a price as possible. Every buyer, naturally, wants to buy for as low a price as possible. When these two natural forces are left to play out without interference, prices tend to stabilize. Think of an auction as a great illustration of a free market economy in action. When the g'ment sent trillions of free dollars into the economy suddenly a lot of people were willing to pay more for things. Then, when the supply chain got disrupted (for a number of reasons), there were fewer goods on hand to sell. Both of these things combined to give us the crazy inflation we're stuck with now. If any particular truck dealer were, in fact, scalping, everyone would shop at his competitor and he'd go out of business. When prices are high everywhere, it isn't scalping, and it isn't generally greed behind it. -Speak

RE: The Future of Pricing

I don't see prices on anything coming down any time soon. Except stocks! (LOL) -Speak

RE: Gas regulator

Glad to hear you resolved the problem. Way back in 2000, we bought our first "rv." It was a brand-new Coleman popup. Best you could get back then (IMO). After a quick weekend-check-it-out camping outing, we set off across country to see Yellowstone. Never had done anything close to this before, and we were super excited. First night in the park it was a bit chilly, with temps forecast to be in the 30's overnight. "Don't worry," I told my family, "We've got a heater!" (We had been tent campers for many years, and couldn't believe the lux that we were now living in!) Middle of the night we were getting cold, so I flipped the switch to turn on the propane heater. Nothing. In the morning there was frost on the roof of the camper. Not a single propane appliance was working in our brand-new camper. Warranties don't do you much good in a situation like that. I did all the trouble shooting I could think of, and spent time on the phone with my dealer 2000 miles away while the family enjoyed Old Faithful. Long story short - faulty gas regulator. Yeah. Yes; they do fail. And yes, a spare is a good idea. -Speak

RE: Selling 2018 F150 to upgrade to 2022 F150 - worth it or not?

You are likely going the wrong direction if your goal is to be less tight on money. If anything, sell the '18 and look for something older you could pay cash for with the proceeds from the '18. This is wisdom. If you (OP) are truly looking for advice, you can't get any better advice than this. -Speak

RE: Family Traditions

As a former teacher, (and the DW a former English teacher) we choose to read aloud to the grandchildren. We camp together almost every weekend, all summer long, and have been doing so for many years. So far, I think we've read about a dozen whole chapter books to the kids. Usually we get through one whole book (couple hundred pages) each summer. Incredible memories for all!! -Speak

RE: Bryce Canyon NP to the Northeast

LOL. We were out there last spring. After Mrs. S. saw Traveling Robert's video on Hwy 12 - complete with the Hogsback - she made me promise not to make her go on it. We had to take the long way around. -Speak

RE: Impact of fuel prices on travel

We have a trip planned for later this month and into next month. 3000 miles. Cost considerations are serious enough, but probably still do-able. My biggest concern is supply. We were in Raleigh last year when that east coast pipeline got shut down by a hacker. People were panic-buying, and there were a couple days when I wondered if I'd be able to get home. That experience has me wondering if it's wise to travel this year. Heartbroken. But it's nothing compared to what our Ukranean brothers and sisters are going through. -Speak

RE: Florida

https://www.brevardfl.gov/ParksAndRecreation/Campgrounds/ManateeHammockCampground https://www.recreation.gov/camping/campgrounds/233638 We stayed at this Manatee Hammock Campground once. It was nice. Right across the water from the NASA launch site. If you time it when there's a launch, I imagine it would be an amazing view. -Speak
