RE: Big Brother- Tag on your TC?

I affixed a license plate bracket to my camper and I take the plate from the truck step bumper and put it on the camper, in plain view. I did that whenever I was planning to go out of state. Maybe that plan was exactly backward --.

RE: Converted to Lithium-Ion be careful.

Here is a short article on 5 common lithium battery types. http://synergyfiles.com/2015/09/5-types-of-lithium-ion-batteries/ Thanks for the link. Good to know.

RE: Advice on truck and camper purchase

Burr Trail or Mogollon Rim trails are very tame. My suggestion is to decide what you really want - off-road capability or more room/comfort. A compromise is not going to be great for either. If off-road is your goal, a popup camper (there are some very nice ones) on a shorter wheel base would be better. (of course, a much smaller camper on a smaller truck would be even better for off-road). I'm 6-3, 190 and had many extensive (and comfortable) off-road trips in my pop-up. Take a look at my and Whazoo's setup and trips for one good way to do it.

RE: Seeking expert opinion: thinning vs prescribed burns

Again not a expert but forest fires have been happening before man was a thing. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.forbes.com/sites/trevornace/2015/11/19/the-age-of-fire-when-ancient-forests-burned/amp/ That is indeed very interesting: factual history/evolution/botany/ecology/chemistry. Clearly fire was nature's original way - and the way I would prefer, except that humanity has changed nature so much that the 'nature way' has big potential and actual problems. And it now seems impossible to me to restore original forest conditions on any meaningful scale. So my weasel answer is 'it depends'; fire when 'reasonable and practical'.

RE: Cant hook up a whole house generator

So I go to the other side of the house and look at the supply and there is no main there either. Rant over.. There is something wrong. There has to be a main breaker that shuts off all power to the house -- unless NC is REALLY strange. Pulling the meter is not an acceptable substitute for a main breaker - though that's probably what a fire department would do in case of fire. I would definitely contact your local building inspection department to be sure.

RE: Considering getting a truck camper

What is your rear axe capacity? Spring capacity? Wheel and tire max load? Maybe this or this. But both would be pushing it a lot I suspect. And finding used? I don't know.

RE: Variable speed water pump

I replaced mine with a Shurflo variable speed pump, and it worked great for 13 years (until I sold the camper -- don't know about after that). It was not quieter on full speed, but usually ran quieter at slower speed. Even at low speed, I wouldn't call it quiet, though.

RE: Whitehorse-Dawson City-Tuktoyaktuk

Very nice narrative. You must have some pictures too, right? http://www.ctwillis.com/CamperTrips/Dempster%200913/photos/127_1792.JPG width=640

RE: They Better Not Screw Us Up

They should let them in, then keep them. Yeah -- make some real aliens!

RE: Bring beer into Canada

Can each person bring 24 cans each? Sorry, way off topic, but this reminds me of a famous quote: "24 cans in a case; 24 hours in a day. Coincidence? I think not"

RE: DIY - Torklift Extension Handles

Nice. The older we get the heavier stuff gets too. Yeah -- but smarter (in some cases)

RE: Alaskan pro/con

O/kohldad ~`what does your post have to do exclusivly with "Alaskan" campers ?? ~~ Bugs are bugs. JM2ยข ~~ YMMV The cabover area is wide open to all elements - bugs, rain, etc - until the inside walls are folded up manually. (Unless they've recently changed the design)

Wonderful pictures of a great area.

Nice, Dan. Great area -- been there many times, for many reasons.

RE: Using tape on aluminum roof seal?

Eternabond works great. Appearance is/can be questionable, depending on how visible it will be, what color it's going over, and how much you care about how it looks.

RE: The best camping spots are free.

Don't know about 'anywhere', but I know I've found a bunch WAY away from cities.

RE: Quick and Easy Camper Life

50th high school reunion, about 1000 miles away, for me. Enjoyable drive and boondock camping there and back. Fully furnished apartment - with my own bed - while there. No air fare, no motels, no car rental, no crowds. Ain't saying it was free - but a good deal cheaper and a lot more pleasant than the alternative. Boy, some of those people were OLD!.

RE: Pop up camper vs hard sided camper

Pretty good comments and advice so far -- none of the 'never a popup' kind. If you want to have a look a the kind of places you can camp in a popup, that a look in the Trip Reports link at my, and especially Whazoo's, trips.
