RE: Using a tow vehicle as a windbreak while boondocking

Back in my tenting camping days, we'd park cross-wind, then pile cargo boxes under the van's side door. Kids slept inside and we slept outside on the ground pretty well sheltered from the wind. Now in the Tiger, I point the hood into the wind even if that means I have to park crosswise in the campsite. This works way better than letting the wind hit the sides.

RE: RVs and California's Planned Power Outages

Can you imagine the problems you could have with high power 100,000 volt lines being buried? Not saying it can't be done, but it is not as easy or safe as you may think. What if the power lines were buried and then a big earthquake broke them?

RE: Trekking poles

Maybe you are the last one to know, but better now than never. I've been using them for years, sometimes even in town. People stop me in the medical building lobby and ask where to get these poles.

RE: Looking for clear air? Here is a useful smoke map

Thanks. It looks like probably good data if I can ever figure out how to get it to display. Another site to pair with this AirNow.gov. This compiles air quality data from the agencies which collect it.

RE: Low calorie and high fiber one pot recipes?

This thread has led to the crock pot now being busy cooking "Outside-In Turkey Tamale Pie." My family's favorite (so far) of the Hungry Girl recipes I've tried. This recipe is very tolerant of changes such as more beans or onion powder instead of fresh onions. My next tweak might be using canned chicken instead of fresh raw ground turkey; this change would make the recipe more travel-friendly. https://www.hungry-girl.com/recipes/outside-in-turkey-tamale-pie

RE: Best selling truck campers (by volume) ?

Agreed that here in the West it is Lance, with Four Wheel as a close second. I see them of all vintages everywhere I go. But they are built here in California and have been for many years. Stats might be different elsewhere.

RE: RVing YouTube videos???

Search YouTube for the kind of travel you want to do - type of vehicle and/or place, for example. Quality varies, but you'll probably find something you like. When planning my recent trip to remote areas in Oregon, I found YouTube videos from Coyote Works, Primal Outdoors, and Softroadingthewest. All gave an excellent view of the type of country I hoped to visit and I found them useful even though I have a small RV and they had other types and other styles of camping.

RE: Low calorie and high fiber one pot recipes?

Take a look at Hungry Girl's collection. All are low calorie, most are high fiber. Several ways to search. If "crock pot" doesn't do it, try "slow cooker." https://www.hungry-girl.com/recipes

RE: Fishing from Accessible Banks in Utah - Where?

Utah Division of Wildlife Resources has a list of accessible fishing spots on its webpage. https://wildlife.utah.gov/accessible-fishing.html The page starts off with "The following is a list of waters that provide fishing access and good fishing to anglers who have physical challenges. Not all of these areas have hard surfaces, and those that do may not meet ADA standards. For more information, call the municipality or agency in charge of the pond or stream, or call the nearest Division of Wildlife Resources office." Note the hard surfaces issue. If she is in a wheelchair, hard surfaces will help. Wheels and gravel don't mix too well.

RE: I’ve discovered why there aren’t many 80 year old RV Techs

There have been entirely too many farewell posts lately. I'm sorry to see that you are joining the Goodbye Team. Over the years, I've learned a lot from your posts. Thank you, and good luck in your future endeavors.

RE: How To Charge 5 Apple Products

As said before, it depends upon what Apple devices. 2.1? 2.4? USB-C, whatever that is. My Apple stuff: a very old iPod Touch, a new iPod Touch, a very old iPad, a new iPad, an iPhone SE. All are actively used when I travel. Each has its own charging requirements. On battery power: 3 cigarette-lighter style 12V outlets in coach and in a pinch the 12V in the dash (always live, but it works off the truck battery, so best not to use it unless the engine is running). I have been using Belkin adapters (car chargers) for years. Not finding exact same thing on Amazon today. Other vendors may have them. On shore power: 2 110V outlets in coach. Plug strip. Or keep on using those 12V outlets as above. Watch out for "car charger" type adapters which label their USB ports as "Apple" and "Android." Huh? I want to know - 1.5? 2.1? 2.4? I hope this info helps you.

RE: Impossible List of Requirement?

Four wheel drive Cs are aftermarket only...because they would make lousy off road vehicles...too low, too heavy, underpowered, too high, too wide etc. I disagree and my Tiger proves it. However, I don't want to hijack this thread.

RE: Impossible List of Requirement?

Lazy Daze Motorhomes has a floorplan similar to what you describe. The factory is near where I live and we see a lot of them, even older ones, on the road around here. They are built on a Ford chassis. http://www.lazydaze.com/flrplans.htm

RE: Motor homes and earth quakes.

I've lived in SoCal for over 70 years, experienced many quakes in houses and one in a car. No major damage. Even the big one a couple of days ago, epicenter about 100 miles from me, was very scary but no damage. That said, my scariest quake was my first in an RV. 3.9 at Lake Tahoe, just a few miles from camp. The "springy things" really bounced me around, made a big racket. Still, no damage. Just a different kind of scary than when it has happened in a house.

RE: Vehicle shopping: Large SUV with removable rear seats?

Go to YouTube and search for "living in a chevy suburban". There are several videos of DIY vehicles similar to what you describe. Also a number of minivans done that way.
