RE: Crossroads Zinger 18' vs Forest River Cherokee Wolf Pup 16

No way would I ever purchase a camper with a window A/C, very poor design to make them work. Other then that I would get the floor plan that works best. I would avoid anything with a foam core floor as well.

RE: Pets are sensitive and caring

Yesterday I received my second covid shot. From lack of sleep and arm being sore I went back to bed and slept to 3:30 this afternoon. Sawyer (my smooth Collie) laid beside me instead of going outside to play with Sasha.

RE: New Camping Buddies

He does love it. His sister doesn't and she will try to redirect him away from the water. He's reaching the point where his energy doesn't ebb and flow as much. After a long water session yesterday, he went inside, moved all the throw blankets and then tried to play with The Twooney. I had to take him back out for the tennis balls when he started chewing on Looney2. Have you ever heard the "difference between a BC and an Aussie?" The Aussie has an "off switch".....LOL! I'll keep your stamina in my prayers ;-) Thanks. He got his final puppy shots - finally. So tomorrow Aunt C, Cat-dog and I are taking Tornado-dog out for a hike. It will be his first outdoor adventure and will hopefully tire him out. He has been busy ripping up cardboard. I no longer have to break boxes down for the recycle bin. Tornado-dog turns them into confetti very quickly. Hmmm, if Aussies have an off switch and BCs don't, that must mean JRTs have a turbo boost.Both my Collies love turning boxes into confetti, now that they are getting older not so much. Use to joke with my sister about getting the Collies boxes for Christmas.

RE: Route around Atlanta

I make it a point to go through Atlanta early Sunday morning. I usually never have to kick cruise control off.

RE: New Camping Buddies

BCSnob I had never been to Maryland until that trip. I was amazed at how steep the hills were in Cumberland. Is the area your located like that? Sounds like your pup had a long journey as well.

RE: Pushing a TT into position from the rear bumper...?

The door side I would like in a certain direction but to do so the terrain will not allow me to pull it into place... I do not have the site yet in a state to accept a trailer (even if I can do this "push" method.) Why not wait until you get the site before you worry about how you will position your TT. Maybe I'm reading your question wrong?I beleive he is in the same predicament as I. Not enough room to pull the trailer into place and get the truck back out because of the terrain. I have several large pine trees and a lake that prevents the use of a truck.

RE: New Camping Buddies

So far Sawyer has visited the following states Kansas Colorado Nebraska Minnesota Iowa Missouri Illinois Indiana Ohio West Virginia Pennsylvania New York Maryland Kentucky Tennessee Georgia Florida Oklahoma and Texas in his 2.5 years. Keep in mind we have not gone anywhere in the last year because of covid. Sasha has not been to as many states but close. If I don't take the RV I usually stay at a motel 6 because of their pet policy, also they have laminate flooring instead of nasty carpet. The most expensive motel was in New York state. I had difficulty finding a motel that would accept pets. Finally found one ironically down the street from West Point.

RE: Pushing a TT into position from the rear bumper...?

I have a similar situation. In order to get my 35' TT into position I hired a skid steer to pull it in. I wanted the door side to face the lake and put in a patio. You could make a very heavy duty dolly to support the tongue and purchase a electric wench from Harbor Freight to pull it into position. If your ground is relatively flat a power dolly would work (mine was not). The skid steer and operator was $300.

RE: New Camping Buddies

Hope Tornado calms down to a gentle breeze as he grows up. The issue with Sawyer was the transition, he did not realize his size. Both Sawyer & Sasha love to travel. Sawyer at 12 weeks went on a 3500 mile trip. Sasha trip at 12 weeks was only about 900 miles. Have any trips planed to get Tornado use to travel?

RE: New Camping Buddies

The Collie I had before Cooper (Bud) had seizures and was on some serious medication. On medication they diminished but then came back with a vengeance. On day he had repeated seizures and I was not going to put him through anymore. Cooper's favorite toy was a Nerf Dog football, he could barely eat but the day before we took the trip he brought me his Nerf football. Still makes my eyes water. He was trying to cheer me up. I apologize for bringing this up, our pets seemed to experience similar issues. Enjoy the new pup they turn into a adult so fast. Sawyer was 12 pounds when I got him now he's around 95 pounds.

RE: New Camping Buddies

Congratulations on the new pups. I lost both of my Collies in 2019 one to old age Mikko and one to oral cancer Cooper. I have always adopted older Collies some with medical issues. This time the rescue had two pups. Sawyer is 2.5yo and Sasha will be 2 July 1st. They quickly reminded me I'm a old man with their boundless energy. LOL Smartest thing I did was adopt two so they had playmates. Thanks! I'm so sorry about Mikko and Cooper - I always enjoyed hearing about them. I thought I would have Bat-dog for several years after Moose-dog passed. Of all my dogs, I think her loss hit me the hardest. Congratulations on your pups. I bet they are gorgeous. Maybe they are distantly related to Tornado-dog. I am extremely glad I have Cat-dog. She helps to burn a fair amount of his energy. Although there are days she will not "come get your brother and play with him" and lets me deal with him.Mikko was my heart dog but knew because of his age his time was short. Cooper was only 4 and in 2 weeks from diagnosis I had to let go. Any help buring up that boundless energy pups have is a blessing.

RE: Someone bought the first electric hummer for 2.5 million.

A fool and his money are soon parted. I don’t know. Seems like a pretty good cause to me.A few people in the world 2.5 million is pocket change. Unfortunately I'm not one of them. I will check out the Ford truck when it becomes available. Sure, but you get that the 2.5 million was a charity event to raise money for veterans, first responders and their families right? I think the Ford EV 1/2 ton will do well. Not sure what the latest timeline is. Seems to me there was a supply chain glitch with the batteries.I didn't read the article but assumed since you said was a good cause.

RE: Best TT in the western parks?

As the boys are getting older and will likely be interested in other things as they move into adulthood, why not simply add some traditional camping gear. A tent, sleeping bags, sleeping mat, etc. Let them sleep in the tent. As they go off to college, let them take their camping gear with them so they can continue the joy of camping. With that, you have holiday gift ideas for quite a few years as you help them build up their camping setup. And you and your wife won't be looking to downsize again in 3-4 years.This would be my recommendation as well.

RE: highway 49 California

I use to drive 49 all the time for recreation because of all the curves and elevation changes. I think it's a great drive on a sports bike but in my opinion a miserable drive trying to pull a trailer or even a large truck. In fact sold my El Camino SS to a person in Angels Camp. There is probably a video on YouTube of someone driving the road.

RE: Light Japanese Trucks used as Tow Vehicles here

Local company had 6 of the Isuzu. They went back to a chassis cab & box when they replaced them.

RE: High Miles??

We are getting a second "newer" vehicle. Our 04 truck just can't be trusted on a long haul trip anymore. We'll keep this truck for a local driver even though it's already sucked up $5k this year. Just want something a bit more reliable to take long trips. Truck or SUV.I think you have answered your own question (when you don't trust them anymore).

RE: High Miles??

Different for different people. My sister trades vehicles every 2 years regardless of miles, usually under 20k. My vehicles I'll run over 250k. I have never had to replace transmission. I have replaced a motor in a Ford Diesel 6.0 at 263k. Just last week I had the head gaskets replaced on a gas 5.4 at a cost of $3200. Previous owner had put in a rebuilt motor but the head gasket leaked on the drivers side. I have a truck fund that is invested in the market. I make enough each year to pay for any repairs and my fuel for the year without touching the principal. Another factor is the cost of personal property tax, sales tax and insurance on a new vechicle compared to a older vechicle. I joked with my mechanic when he retires I will have to start purchasing new vehicles again.
