RE: Chains in BC

Just watch "Highway thru Hell" on the Weather Channel for examples of how bad it can get fast. I left Alaska on the last day of September in 2019. I was worried about the BC chain requirement. Fortunately, the weather was good so I don't think the RCMP were out looking for potential violators.

RE: Questions for Veterans

Another question from a non veteran but one who supports the Military and is always trying to make up for it. Do you get offended when I always "Thank You for Your Service" when it's clear you are a Vet? Thanks for Your Service.

RE: Evacuation Insurance

When we went in 2019, I wanted a way to communicate with family and in case of emergency. I ended up buying a SPOT communicator. One of the options was a rescue feature at the press of a button that would attivate what ever type of rescue was needed. Check this out. I used it to send a All Safe text message with our location every night. In hindsight, i should have gone with the Garmin Inreach unit as it is easier to operate.

RE: Road way and Elevation issues while traveling

Another question is do you want to avoid tolls. In the NE, many of the highways and bridges have tolls. Pulling a toad means some of the tolls are rediculous. We are going to Maine in August from Maryland. We've driven I95 through NYC and up to Boston in cars so don't need to see that again. In our RV pulling a toad, we'll go up I83 and other interstates to Birmingham. Then wander our way through Vermont and New Hampshire before getting to Maine. Should be a nice, scenic trip.

RE: Short Term Freezing Weather Tips?

Be sure your propane tanks are full. With what we've seen in Texas on the Weather Channel I would not drive my rig out to fill up with propane. If you have an extended stay valve on your rig, and have a safe way to get some propane, get some 20# tanks and use them. You could get 2 days per tank used sparingly.

RE: Filling large propane tank on the road

FWIW - We’re in Dallas, and the Tractor Supply’s around here will not fill permanent tanks in a motorhome. I’m not sure any of the, will - YMMV, but I would recommend calling first. In my area, they will but not all the personnel are qualified to fill horizonal tanks (I think that is the requirement). Agree with the call first.

RE: Filling large propane tank on the road

Most ACE hardware stores also sell propane. In my area, I have found out that the cost of propane at Tractor Supply is half of Ace, which I had previously been using. I took my RV down to our goose club so I would not have to eat and sleep in the clubhouse. I used a 20# bottle connected to an extended stay. This worked out well. Tractor Supply was close by which is how I learned of my mistake. Was shocked at the difference in price. Needless to say, I filled up the RV Saturday when I brought the RV home. I refilled my 20# bottle about 4 times during the season and would be able to get about 3 nights in cold weather. If I were ataying full time, I would have 2 bottles. Note: Tractor Supply has a corporate policy that they will not fill Blue Rhino bottles.

RE: Living with only one arm

It's amazing what folks can do when they have to. A friend of mine lost his right arm and left leg in Iraq. Raising 3 wonderful children with an amazing wife. What this guy can do, and how he does it, will blow your mind.
