RE: GM Strike

Was UAW for 43 yrs. As far as profit sharing it sounds great. We had it at various times at the parts supplier I worked for. Trouble was books and figures are cooked so they don't show the set goal. How do I know this? My then foreman was POd that his dept. didn't show the gain he knew it had done. Why? Because in midstream they changed the way it was figured, result, no bonus. As far as why the UAW picked GM they have always targeted one of the big three knowing that the other two will following lead of the first

RE: Glacier national park

June may be a little early. Going to the Sun Road didn't open till July this year. I drove west to east on Going To The Sun Road on June 28 it had opened the week before. Check here https://www.krtv.com/news/montana-and-regional-news/2019/06/22/going-to-the-sun-road-now-entirely-open/ I've also been over it on Fathers Day week-end. Here's a site which lists opening and closing dates since 1933 https://www.nps.gov/glac/learn/news/upload/Logan-Pass-Open-Close-Dates_Press-Kit-6-26-2017.pdf

RE: I-94 through Chicago

A little further but a lot less hassle would be to go through Mi. and avoid Chicago and Milwaukee. According to Google Map it 164 mi and 2 hr & 41 min longer. Of course the time going through Chicago if you hit a bad time

RE: 5th Wheel Rails in Truck Bed

Gulfcoast, those were my thoughts when I removed the original rails. But since then we've had a truck camper, travel trailer and now our first 5er. Previously had 2 truck campers, 1 Travel trailer, 2 horse trailers, 2 car haulers, 1 enclosed. As you can see I've had a variety

RE: Cleaning out a DIY septic tank

You’re illegal if you’re in a first world country !!! Call your local government zoning/sanitation department and ask them what they would do. Thinking you’ll find out the correct answer in a heartbeat. Otherwise a YouTube link would be great. DO NOT ask the government what they would do. Ask them what's required. If you tell them what you have there may be repercussions

RE: 5th Wheel Rails in Truck Bed

When I bought my dually it had the rails and I took them out and sold them, I was never going to get a 5th wheel. Well 5 years later guess what. I bought a 5th wheel so had to go buy rails and mounting brackets. You might want to take a bit to think about future possibilities. What I did when I took the old rails out was small carriage bolts and used silicone over them. That worked fine as I put a bed mat in.

RE: Salt Lake to Elkhart, IA Travel Advice

The problem I have with U.S. 30 is all the traffic lights, low speed limits in many areas, plus the many business drives and cross streets. Not at all conducive for a half way relaxing drive any more than stuck in a traffic jam is. I did it with a car years ago and when I got back on in Joliet there was a very distinctive semi that I'd been seeing when I was in a traffic jam up on 80 and here he was at the same time I was tooling right along. So I can't see using U.S. 30 as any better

RE: Salt Lake to Elkhart, IA Travel Advice

You can never be sure about traffic around Chicago. If you hit it right you can, without towing, keep up with traffic and buzz through at 70 mph plus. If possible I like to go through late at night or early in the morning. I go through there towing 2-6 times a year and have seldom had stop and go traffic

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

https://i.imgur.com/MmnGkgYl.jpg]https://i.imgur.com/MmnGkgYl.jpgparkowner, you must be a poodle owner. If so then you must know that the "standard" refers to size nothing else. Myself and many others consider the Goldendoodle to be the epitome of the two breeds. Low to zero shed, smart and easy to train, athletic, super social and great companions. As far as size ours is 65-70 lbs so he's never mistaken for a horse, but he sure looks different after his swim. Also he keeps our groomer employed as he goes every 4-5 weeksTo quote a nursery rhyme "if you don't have a whole poodle, a half-a-poodle will do. If you don't have a Half-a-poodle God bless you!" I guess that means you fall into the "typical poodle owner" category. If you read what I said again you'll find I didn't degrade poodles. What ever dog makes you happy is the right one. I wanted a Doberman but my wife wanted a dog that wouldn't possibly scare our young grandchildren, the youngest was 3 at the time or other people. As you can tell she got it. I don't regret it as we couldn't have gotten a better suited dog for us and our travels. It's funny when we have been in campgrounds for a few days we have run into people who upon seeing our dog have said "Oh this must be Max we've heard so much about him" That's the kind of good impression he makes on people that they tell others about him

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

We have a 4yr old Goldendoodle. The day got him he was 9 wks old. His ride home that day was 100 mi. He has always loved riding and going places, including the vets. He has ridden as much as 800 mi in a day without a problem whether in the back seat of my wifes car or our crew cab. He's not a yappy dog and would lick you to death before anything else

RE: Tow Vehicle Question

Trailers I seen advertised for rent around here are placed on site by the owners not the renter. You might check with your insurance to see if it would be covered when rented

RE: snowbirding

No way would we be going into Florida other than the panhandle Why not? We're planning on snowbirding in Florida this coming winter. I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on why Florida is bad? Personal preference.

snowbirding

We are thinking of going south for a month this coming Feb. This would be our first time other than just passing through.We are looking for recommendations for a park but not the resort type. The following states are where we are thinking. Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and possibly the Florida panhandle. Also if near water the wife is concerned about our dog near alligators. Has anyone experienced any problem with them. I've tried reassuring her there wouldn't be as he'd be on a leash but of course I'm not speaking from experience

RE: Truck Caps

Since having the 5th wheel I use a roll-up tonneau cover for the summer and a topper for the winter. To make taking off and putting the topper on easier I made a cart that is the same height as the truck bed rails. Then I can do both on and off by myself by using 2 or 3 pieces of 1/2" or 3/4" pipe set under the topper and simply roll it on or off that way. Beats the heck out of getting enough help to lift it off

RE: Bargan at the Beach!

When we were out there last month just north of Newport I paid $2.49 for diesel. The next lowest price was Sams Club in Billings Mt. Our trip was just over 7500 mi and I lucked out and never paid over $2.92. Using Gas Buddy and having a 50 gal in bed tank is a big help in taking advantage of lower prices when possible
