RE: Remember the bike box?

What a great idea ! With room to spare. Might want to make sure it tight . It's tight. Double lipped, double attached. Gary

RE: Pet Peeves long road trip

You opened the door..so, I will step thru. I have a lifetime of professional driving and as time went on, dealing with accidents became a much more dollar driven science. It went from...who was at fault to...was it preventable. And there...right there, is the defining view. Was it preventable. Accidents..no one wins. Injuries..so what if you are in the right? The injuries sustained can change your life. Will change your life. Without a long winded lecture that no one is going to read...try this...you see an upcoming situation. You are in the right. But..a potential accident is now in view. If you get off the go pedal..if you move over..if you throw on the 4-ways...if you take action to prevent, never mind being 'right'. Look what you gain. One of the tings is less anger. Less frustration. Taking control of a situation is key. You can do that, by driving to prevent. A 4 way stop...you know what happens, right? 3 or 4 vehicles all get there at the same time...let them go thru. Control the intersection. Control the outcome. Same same traffic circles...control the environment. You win. Gary Haupt

RE: Portable Jump Starter

I have had and carried...and every time I went to use it, was dead. They are just a cheap wet cel that doesn't hold a charge. Needs to be left plugged in. I now carry a battery charger and will use THAT if I have a dead starter batt. I also carry long cables to beg a jump if I need that. Gary Haupt

RE: Remember the bike box?

JRScooby...the gen is a baby Yamaha and it rides in storage now..and the chairs have a place under already, too. This was mostly just spiffballing. Before I do anything I will just dry-fit and see what it looks like, etc. Murphy wins..everytime. Gary

RE: Remember the bike box?

I assume those are brake/turn/backup lights across the bottom. Put the license plate on the door. When you run the light for the plate, put one on the inside as well to assist with loading/unloading at night. I 'think' the plate is going to go on the left side of the box, in a frame. Recall the old pick-ups? An interior light...that, is a good idea. Thanks. I am also going to add turn signals/running lights to the rear side of the box. Gary

RE: Remember the bike box?

Looks good to me. Think I would add a shelf. Someplace to carry couple hooks, pulley and rope. Might be useful to get tire down and up if need to use it. I can reach the tire standing...to actually undo it or put it back, I will likely need some kind of stool. I have one of them thar plastic folding ones...I may need to upgrade to an actual small folding step thing. Because the box is frameless and is so long..it will damage the top if I am walking on it. Really tho? It won't be me taking the tire down. Gary

RE: Remember the bike box?

A shelf....yes, for sure. My thought now is to put the shelf low, and let the bikes sit on that..leaving the lower area for 'stuff'. My Yammy 1000 inverter, a fuel can, the sewer hose. Thoughts welcome. Gary

RE: Remember the bike box?

Nice. Great idea! :C Is it supported by the receiver? Yes..but also anchored to the original spare tire bolts at the back of the box. Gary

RE: Remember the bike box?

Looks very well done. Is the box made of aluminum? What do you suppose it weighs? Just curious where the license plate ended up. Weighs about 50lbs, according to the builder. Yes, all aluminum. The license/light...I will figure out in the next day or 4. Gary

RE: Remember the bike box?

Nice. Great idea! :C Is it supported by the receiver? There and also where the spare was originally attached. If it were a 'thing'..it can all be taken off. Although some fibreglass work would have to follow. Gary

Remember the bike box?

I had dropped a note a couple of weeks ago, about getting a bile box built, a ladder and the spare moved. https://i.imgur.com/XG00AWQ.jpg]https://i.imgur.com/XG00AWQ.jpg https://i.imgur.com/0vcpQ1I.jpg]https://i.imgur.com/0vcpQ1I.jpg https://i.imgur.com/HtDt5PN.jpg]https://i.imgur.com/HtDt5PN.jpg https://i.imgur.com/HlkjCBD.jpg]https://i.imgur.com/HlkjCBD.jpg Gary Haupt

RE: Stay on your own side....

And they just cordoned off the Australian state of Victoria..6.6 million people. ABC News Corona Virus Health and Science Coronavirus updates: US reports 45,000 new cases; death toll tops 130,000 This isn't playtime..... Gary

RE: Stay on your own side....

It's a scary time. I see that Australia is closing off the state of Victoria..6.6 million people, as of midnight Tuesday, using the military. I have friends in the US and I fear for them...for all of you. A vaccination may not be found as early as we'd all like. It matters not what I think about travel across state lines. But...I hope that if you are making a trek, that you do it with extreme caution. No one wants this virus and there have been enough 'Come to Jesus' moments by now, that even the non-believers have to be thinking....'maybe I spoke too soon'. But..people will do what they do. Make sure you have health care before going too far from home. Gary Haupt

RE: Stay on your own side....

Alaska has a 2 week quarantine also. Anyone traveling to Alaska from outside must quarantine for 2 weeks upon arrival. Were they traveling home to Alaska? Probably should have stayed put, or parked and flew home. Sounds like they deserve the fine. Also, very surprised they were let in. I have a fried who was having a truck serviced in BC before the boarders were shut down. When he went to pick it up they would not allow him in to pick it up. He had to pay to have it towed across the boarder so he could take it home. Kinda apples and oranges wit the truck problem. The truck was serviced IN BC, then he wanted to take INTO the US. This is about being IN the US and wanting to enter Canada. There is a cross border agreement...people in Canada can use land travel into the US for essential travel. Same applies for US citizens entering Canada. The essential travel part seems to mostly apply to folks that are going TO home in Alaska..or going FROM Alaska to home in the US. People are arriving at the CDN border crossing claiming to be going TO Alaska...when they aren't. Why on earth someone would do that is beyond me. The odd thing is...a person can fly either way impunity. Gary

RE: BC winter travels...

Storm watching in Tofino? Or Torqart Bay. Yes...Tofino and Uculet. I think Toqart Bay will be closed..but I will find out. I wonder if they oysters at Toqart are still as plentiful. Gary

RE: BC winter travels...

A winter trip without skiing and farther from your part of BC means you're going east. Wood Buffalo? Or do like we talked about and head to Cape Breton, pretty mild there, relatively speaking If it weren't for the 10 day drive, Cape Breton would be the cats meow. Gary

RE: BC winter travels...

We would spend more time around Muncho Lake, and also your neighbors around Kelowna. Muncho, eh? You did see I was saying winter time. Kelowna is up the road by 45 minutes...nawww...too close. Gary

RE: Longer closure gathering momentum...

gmckenzie...as I am sure you know, but for others...the lock-down that is now lifting in stages has spawned a tidal wave of RV purchases and a drive into the hinterlands. RV sales have skyrocketed...anything that 'appears' to be usable as a camping method...tents, tarps, old vans...new anything...huge debt being incurred. Any scrap of ground they can camp on is taken between Vancouver and probably Prince George. If a person has field with a pond? man...they could almost retire. Gary

BC winter travels...

We have been going south the past years. Not the case for this one coming, so am considering/talking about...BC home travels. Rather obviously we won't be away for 3 months straight. A week here...two there...if the weather gets really ugly we are never that far from home. We like wild hot springs. Have been to Lucier, Half-Way..going to Sloquet in September. I don't think we'll do Liard..that's a drive and a half...Any secrets spots you want to share? hauptgw@gmail.com No doubt we'll be in Vancouver a bit. Plague the kids and some friends. If you have some thoughts? Ideas...I don't ski anymore, so that's out. Lots of craft brew places to visit. Purely research, of course. Gary Haupt
