RE: GM 6.6 gas

I don't have one, but have been looking at them. I would not expect a 10 speed until 2022 at the earliest. This is my biggest disappointment and one reason I may end up with Ford and the 7.3L. I know the GM factories had a strike early in the year and then Covid hit, so dealerships where I am don't even have the **** things to look at or test. And they have stopped taking 2020 orders and are not taking 2021 orders yet. Applies to both Ford and GM. My Chev dealer was ready to take an order for a 2021 HD a month ago.

RE: Campsite Squatters

Seen it for years, mostly in the higher elevations of Utah.Asked rangers and they ho hum about it.When you see grass growing around the wheels it's obivious the rig hasen't been moved in months. Pisses me of but there's nothing I can do about it. A lot are for hunting camps.Some nice rigs just sitting. They usually are pulled out before the snows. And there lies the problem, those that are paid to enforce the rules, are not willing to do so. They are indeed paid to enforce the rules but probably know from previous experience that the citation they issue will not result in any legal action. The rangers are just like every other law enforcement officer in that they have to choose their battles. The FS LEO's are overwhelmed w huge territories and gobs of people. They can co-ordinate the ticketing of campers that overstay the 14 or 16 day Forest limits, but that requires effort from those FS employees not working law enforcement. Once a FS LEO writes a ticket the matter will be get before a court or the ticket will be paid.

RE: Easy Macorini Salad Recipe

I don't rinse macaroni, ever. After it's drained and still hot the macaroni is ready to absorb whatever flavors are added next whether it's tomato sauce or the liquids in this salad recipe. In this Easy Mac Salad Recipe I'd drain the hot macaroni, put in a bowl and add the mayo and other liquids, mix and then refrigerate until cold before adding the other ingredients. (I would skip the sugar altogether.)

RE: Leather Sofa Or Fabric Sofa?

We don't consider anything other than leather. I'm huge on cleanliness, and being able to wipe off leather furniture is a wonderful thing. I wipe ours down every few months and see how much grime comes off on the rag, and then I think how filthy most cloth furniture that rarely/never gets cleaned must be. I'll pass. Actually upholstered furniture is cleaned as necessary and can be cleaned more thoroughly than a quick wipe of leather chair or couch. Leather is porous and the dirt and oils penetrates the surface and therefore untouchable w a quick wipe. I've found the best solution to having upholstery cleaned is to have the carpet cleaner do it w their truck mounted steam and vacuum system. If the piece has all removable cushions they can also be dry cleaned or machine washed depending on the fabric. If the actual cushion filling is soiled they can also be replaced.

RE: Leather Sofa Or Fabric Sofa?

We have 2 leather recliners (craftsmen style) that are 20 years old, and need the leather replaced because it's not washable. The cost to replace the leather is astronomical and the recliners have decades of life remaining. We will probably end up w upholstery fabric.

RE: Firearms to Alaska

Mailing rifles and shotguns to yourself in care of another individual (not an FFL) via USPS is legal. The lib postmaster broke my shoes about it and even made me tear open my box to show her the contents. Next time I won't be so forthright about the contents and try to follow the letter of the law.

RE: too much truck or not enough trailer?

Well I'll give the guy the benefit of the doubt. Pretty sure anyone w a dually knows about a drop hitch. Perhaps there is a decent explanation. Does buying a dually impart some kind of special knowledge, or a dually owners just naturally smarter than us mere single wheel owners? It usually implies that one has owned or used other trucks and is familiar w the basics of towing. We'll never know for sure why that combo was on the road. Why is it so hard to be charitable?

RE: What's changed about camping?

1) I'm sure Canada being closed off is limiting the dispersion this summer. 2) Remote learning and remote working starting in March led to a mass migration to outdoor recreation. If schools are remote again this fall perhaps parents and kids will have to spend more time attending to studies beginning in September and things will quiet down. 3) The FS does very few new timber sales and thus few new roads. Old roads are now abandoned to preserve big game and because of lack of funding. 4) MX is probably not as big a draw w covid limiting dispersion. 5) Social media leads to the overcrowding and then destruction of many places. Kayteg1 - I've always wanted to camp on Powell, 10,000 lakes is another option.

A new study suggests additional benefits of mask wearing to the wearer. "we discuss for one of the first times the hypothesis – compiling virologic, epidemiologic and ecologic evidence- that universal masking reduces the “inoculum” or dose of the virus for the mask-wearer, leading to more mild and asymptomatic infection manifestations." https://ucsf.app.box.com/s/blvolkp5z0mydzd82rjks4wyleagt036

RE: A Commercial Vacuum Sealer Might Be Just What You Need

I bought the weston pro-2100, couldn't make myself buy another foodsaver based on the reviews online. The weston works well especially the sealer which was a weak point of the foodsavers, iirc. I hope to get the chance to put some game away this year!

RE: Being hoodwinked by Store Clerks

So much for innocent until proven guilty. You we no proof the clerk did anything wrong. The card number could have been stolen by any number of people. Did that add anything to your story by blaming someone with zero proof? You got your money back - your whole - move on and stop assuming you know where the guilt lies. Could even have been merely keying in a wrong number. Perhaps it was an honest mistake, but I'd bet OP was correct. They "should" have returned the cold, hard cash or credited the CC, but they choose not to. The question remains is what is their stated return policy.

RE: After one day, I am finished.....

Although maybe a few are jerks it's a team sport and they've gotten along w teammates and coaches for a long time so most of them, like most everyone else is not a jerk. They compete in an open market so they only get paid paid what someone else thinks they are worth.

RE: After one day, I am finished.....

. Respect. I would also like to point out that it has never been only the armed forces that fought for our way of life. Auto workers, coal miners, and many others fought Got you covered. Posted: 07/24/20 02:41pm "The vast sacrifices of vets and many others"
