Stowe Vermont this weekend things to do

So we are visiting relatives in Stowe, Vermont this weekend 10/21 to 10/22. Ideas for things to see and do? I believe we are past "peak" leaf peeping season. Stores, craft shows, standard touristy things. Out relatives probably already have plans for us, but it would be nice to show up with a couple ideas. Thanks in advance!

RE: Theft at a State park.......

Well, if nothing else I am in a better place than someone needing to steal a poop hose. Heck, I'll let someone borrow mine - why not, poop is poop... just rinse it out. I have friends who own septic pump out companies... as they say: "that is the smell of money!" lol!

RE: Theft at a State park.......

I really can’t figure out why someone would take the chance or risk of being injured or death by stealing junk, such as sewer hoses, grills, or bicycles, etc. Nowadays, people with legal permits have protection and have motion cameras on their RVs. I guess thieves think their lives are worth less than the junk or their IQ is below 100, take your pick. We’ve been lucky; the only living creatures messing around on our camp sites at odd hours are squirrels, raccoons, and grazing deer. The thieves do not care. They will wave at security cameras.

RE: Can 'O Worms: how long can I expect my 5er to last?

Our 2004 Forest River Surveyor is still going. Haven't done anything to it until this spring. Almost 20 years of weekend camping. This spring I put down plywood on the floor due to the original flooring getting really soft. Most likely due to a water leak on our first camping trip with it. Related to that, we put blocks under the fold out step due to how much it moves. Other than those issues, it really is almost 100%. The thing just keeps going. Looks good, inside and out. We didn't expect it to last this long. My wife wants a new camper, one of those "retro" campers... but this Surveyor just won't die!

RE: Shopping new tires - is my shop confused or am I?

I would take a hard pass on any Michelin tire. Look for an E rated tire in another name brand. I had Generals on my Excursion and was very happy with them. What happened with Michelin? On these forums they are usually considered one of the best brands.

RE: Honda 2000 won’t run my late model home furnace

quote=C Schomer: How big is the furnace's blower.. Good chance the starting current exceeds the generator's ability. Starting current for a blower fan would exceed a generator's ability? Would that be like a commercial factory size blower or something? I am not an expert in HVAC, this is not being sarcastic or anything. Note: couldn't do a normal quote for some reason.

RE: 2023 Ford Super Duty Reveal

"For the builders"... Hmmm... One thing I wish I could do with my 2021 F150 XLT is to shut OFF most of the electronics / "safety features" / alarms so that I can... build. Well, at least work without some alarm going off every 5 minutes. Ford should have some sort of "work mode" you can activate with the truck so it is easier to use as a work truck. One of the worst is the electronically locking tailgate. When working (landscaping), I don't carry truck keys or my phone on me - I don't want to damage or lose them. I get to a job site, hop out, lock the cab... and can't open the tailgate. Pain in the arse to put it mildly. That, and lower the friggin' height of the trucks!

RE: looking for campground in NE New Jersey

We've been to Mahlon Dickerson Reservation a couple times, last time was 2016. Excellent small campground with water and electric hookups and dump station.

RE: Stolen Ford 350

I have never heard of doing a "VIN search" on a new vehicle at a dealership. Buying used from a dealership also wouldn't occur to me to VIN search the vehicle. Is this common at dealerships?

RE: Diesel Ram Owner Forced to Scrap Truck !

.... On September 25, a group of cyclists riding near Waller, Texas, were hit by a Ford Super Duty driven by a 16-year old youth. Reports from witnesses indicated the driver had been "rolling coal" on the group immediately prior to striking six cyclists, four of whom were hospitalized due to injuries sustained. Now, news out of Texas is that the teen driver is finally in custody according to the District Attorney of Waller County, over a month after the incident occurred. Today, the district attorney filed six felony charges of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon against the juvenile driver, corresponding to each of the six cyclists that was injured. The 16-year old voluntarily surrendered to authorities, and was taken into custody by the juvenile justice department. The Drive I remember hearing about that last year. Is the driver the same guy trying to sell the truck in the beginning of this thread?

RE: current diesel fuel pricing

Yep, in Connecticut the price of diesel has been well over $1 more than gasoline for awhile now. I just posted in another thread talking about 1/2 ton diesels... no one I know is looking to buy a diesel now, the fuel is so expensive.

RE: RAM 1500 EcoDiesel Productions Ends in January

In Connecticut, the cost of diesel is running well over $1 more per gallon than regular gas. Whatever mpg gains you get are not enough to offset that. No one I know is even thinking of looking at a diesel pickup truck these days.

RE: Diesel Ram Owner Forced to Scrap Truck !

I had a 2008 Ram. People were telling me for years to delete it and put a tuner on it. I had to replace a turbo and the company I bought it from said I would need a minor tuner for it to run right. If I ran it on the lowest tune when not towing a heavy trailer it would clog up the emissions. With no tune it ran fine. I sold it a few months ago with all of the exhaust intact. The guys deleting these newer trucks are crazy. There is plenty of power from the factory to pull anything they are rated for. Adding more will only break things and cost you more money. They're not deleting them for power. They are deleting them to get rid of the "problematic" emissions equipment. Everyone I know who talks about "deleting" wants to do it for power.

RE: Diesel Ram Owner Forced to Scrap Truck !

Dumb for not keeping emissions equipment. Then listed as deleted. Just wonder if he rolled coal at the wrong time. Got to wonder if someone from NJ DEQ replied to the ad and he boosted how much power and how cool it is to roll coal You and others don’t see this as a sponsored publicity thing? Because that’s what it was. I guess I missed that. Who is sponsoring publicity for what?

RE: Diesel Ram Owner Forced to Scrap Truck !

Do all "off road" engines have to comply with EPA / DOT requirements? Do racing vehicles, not used on public roads, have to comply with EPA / DOT requirements? The guy said he unregistered the truck to use it as a competition truck. I don't know about "deleting", but I thought it was mostly removing the cat and modifying the engine programming? I am a little surprised it would cost $10,000 to get it back to EPA compliance. It seems like there may be more to the story.
