RE: Crude at $20 and pump price is at $2

I stopped buying stocks on oil industry 3 years ago seeing this trend.Depends on your timing. Chevron has been on a tear lately. I trade but only on those with brighter long-term prospects in case I'm caught on short-term negative sentiments, lol.

Crude at $20 and pump price is at $2

World demand is lowest ever in this dying industry. I stopped buying stocks on oil industry 3 years ago seeing this trend. Must be time to bring our troops back home being on harms way acting as security guard for the world on these hostile and dangerous oil routes. But seriously, who is crying about this again?

RE: How are your solar panels mounted?

3M tape may not work on some RV roofs that have rubber coating that deteriorate over time or from extreme sun exposure. Yup, my former RV's roof rubber coating peeled off when I use my pressure washer.

RE: Senior Citizens Speak Up

Here's some fairly current info about how states rank in Federal dependency.https://wallethub.com/edu/states-most-least-dependent-on-the-federal-government/2700/ A few different ways to figure but clearly California Federal taxpayers are subsidizing those in a majority of the other states. Strange how a state that is doing so much right can be the target of so many ignorant attacks. We've got some real bottom feeder states but we mostly feel sorry for the residents, not attack them. Not on topic, but neither are the tiresome digs about California. Well stated .... thanks for this! P.S. In addition to tax dollars, I believe that California supplies an awful lot of the nation's food. In addition, California is the nation's brain-trust of geniuses working their hi-tech industry. This is a joke but I bet that without California in the count, the nation's average IQ will have a big drop Also politics aside and relevant to the current times, California's Democratic supermajority is now on 5 consecutive years of surplus and kept a "rainy day" fund that will be useless in this crisis. And we of course know that they are not the ones harping and screaming "fiscal responsibility."

“Especially those of us on fixed income, with no hope of annual raises.” Your Social Security isn’t fixed. Go back to work if you are in “dire straights.” Widdis you are consistent! We can ALWAYS count on you for a negative offensive post. Congrats, again you have not let us down. Unfortunately we have a few too many members like that on this forum. Ditto!:M

RE: Senior Citizens Speak Up

When approached by a hot woman, a Covid-19 test is recommended. ROFL!!!!! This wins the internet today!!! Humph... Better go with full blood work up instead. “ Girls you used to know, fellas that may have kissed'em Some got rabies, some got fleas, some got incurable diseases From this Cockamamie Business” —G Harrison :):) I am with you -- even if this is just meant for the truckers or lone RVers amongst us.:E

RE: Senior Citizens Speak Up

Yosemite Sam - couldn't get this to quote your part, or delete once it was wrong - but. We spent 2 yrs in the desert. Paid $150 first time special per month in Yuma, $250 month in Why AZ, $150 mo + elect in New Mexico, $200 mo + elec in Rockport Tx and currently in a park paying $312 mo which includes electric. If you look, there are lower cost parks available -- except in high tourist attraction areas which we avoid. When traveling we use Passport America a lot, and many campgrounds/rv parks are $25 or less per night. Thanks for the info although I'm happy with the $35 rate on a well-maintained national and other public campgrounds.

RE: A great moneymaking idea-Really!

LOL!;) Just be quick! Someone was stuck with hundreds of thousand disinfecting liquid when Amazon delisted him for price gouging. Or, someone who counted his chick before it is hatched of $40,000 profit but found out later that his state prohibits reselling of those critical hospital items, PPE, etc.

RE: jacks up or down

Maybe needed down if storage is in specially high wind locations. Found myself inside an RV with 50-70 mph wind and I have to put mine down even on a temporary stop.

RE: How are your solar panels mounted?

That's the reason why I did not mount mine on the roof. Besides, I want my campsite under trees and tucked in the forest -- I can move my panel and need not the RV.

RE: 20 year loan for RV?

quit spending more than you make. Unfortunately by the time they learn that, if ever, it’s too late. If you want to enjoy your retirement you need to live below your means now. I wouldn’t even get a 20 year loan on a home that hopefully, will increase in value. You missed out. Got mortgage for two home and made money off price appreciation -- on top of savings on principal payments.

RE: 20 year loan for RV?

What ever the length of the loan is, just be sure that there is not a penalty for paying if off early - then just pay more on it per month. Or get a Chase "recast". Pay higher than the monthly mortgage and your new monthly payment will be lower because of lower principal that needs to be paid off.

RE: Senior Citizens Speak Up

I remember the story of a hiking friend. He was in Toulomne fly fishing when a hot woman approached him and engaged him in a talk opening up on how lovely the place is. She asked where he lives and told her he is a Californian and lives 5 hours drive down South. She said she is from a Southern state and added there is nothing like this down there and that he is lucky to be living in California. Well long story short, he wants to say bye as he is chasing the fish downstream but she won't let go. He must be joking but he said that he got the impression that she would have left her two kids right then and there had he propositioned that he'll take her with him, LOL.:) Color me skeptical. I find that the fish are always bigger and the women are always "hotter" when the story gets retold. You may actually know the woman, she is from Texas.;) And I deliberately did not name the state because I might offend you, LOL :W

RE: 20 year loan for RV?

I wonder. Most likely sky high interest rates that the lender will get their money back + profit in 7 years and the rest is gravy. RV is considered worthless after 10 years. That's why some private campsite won't permit one as they might end up with the headache of disposal when the owner abandon it in their yard.

RE: Senior Citizens Speak Up

Hmmm ... as usual a lot of CA-bashing going on here ... or is it sour grapes talking! My DW is a CA native, and I left Michigan at age 19, moved to CA, and never looked back. Thanks to good old Prop 13, our CA property taxes are way lower than what they would be otherwise and way lower than what they would be in many other "better" states (based on tax comments that I read in these forums). In our situation we pay no (as in zero) state income taxes. We have no mosquitoes. Our average humidity never gets anywhere near 80% or higher, and our mild temperatures are legendary. And, FWIW, in our particular situation none of our stick house power or RV storage power comes from burning anything. California Prop 13 type laws should be passed in every state, IMHO, so that folks could stay in their stick houses long term if they just happened to want to, and be able to, otherwise. Regarding SS - ours and everybody else's does indeed get adjusted upwards any year whenever a certain inflation index dictates - so it's not "fixed". As for using a Recreational Vehicle for full-time living in, I'm not sure I'm a fan of using national tax or state tax park dollars to support this. What I do support is use of tax dollars to set aside special areas where folks could full-time live at using RVs (areas kept and maintained much, much better than the Slabs) ... such that maybe true recreational part-time RV'ers could find a spot when they are able to break free and take their RV out for a few days here and there. x2 - I think it's envy disguised as disgust. I remember the story of a hiking friend. He was in Toulomne fly fishing when a hot woman approached him and engaged him in a talk opening up on how lovely the place is. She asked where he lives and told her he is a Californian and lives 5 hours drive down South.
