RE: I regret purchasing a Winegard Trav'ler for Dish Network

I just received a reply from Winegard to my periodic inquiry about EA support.... "The SK-1000 will not work on the eastern arc and we do not have any plans to update it to do so." In other words "stuff it". I'll keep asking but I wonder whether I'm the only one

RE: First Tow Vehicle Suggestions

I have made some very costly mistakes over nearly two decades and multiple TV purchases. My advice is to choose a TV not for this first RV but for the next one. Twice I have found myself replacing a TV still very much in its prime, simply because my taste in RVs outgrew it. That gets really expensive.

RE: Wireless Printer

This one looks good and meets your requirements. I'll never have another inkjet, though. Is your budget open to color laser all in one? That's what I have. I'm very happy with it.

RE: Help with hitch decision

My old BD3 split into two pieces making it fairly easy to remove without mechanical assistance. If you have the factory installed mounting system TS has an adapter that will fit.

It's an easy drive from Skidaway but I don't recall any mass transit connection.

RE: Watkins Glen, NY which campground to choose for next summer

I spent a month at Clute a couple years ago. It's a glorified parking lot but, if I had any plans to go to NY again, I'd go back just for the location. There is a lakefront park across the street. It's right on the Finger Lakes Trail. It's an easy walk into town.

RE: Bilioxi, MS camping suggestions

If you want to go a little further toward NO, Buccaneer State Park in Waveland, MS is a favorite of mine and meets your requirements.

RE: US Post Office and FedEx

That won't work with FedEx Ground. It will with FedEx Smartpost. Amazon occasionally selects the wrong one. UPS has an equivalent service called "Surepost". (Unless something has changed since I had a FedEx Ground package returned a couple weeks ago. )

RE: How to receive packages on the road

Many towns also have small, private businesses that rent mailboxes, receive and ship UPS, USPS, and Fedex packages, etc. Sometimes they are the best deal and/or most conveniently located. At a private place you are not limited to only one carrier, the way you are the the PO, or UPS or Fedex store. They normally fo all three plus others. That used to be true but now both UPS (Surepost) and FedEx (Smartpost) have services that will deliver to USPS General Delivery. I have a UPS Surepost package from Amazon due at the local PO tomorrow.

RE: How to receive packages on the road

Thanks for the info! I wasn't familiar with the General Delivery option. It looks like I can use it with Amazon and other retailers too! Yes. I do it all the time.

RE: Service while on the road

I am an absolute klutz. Changing the oil in my lawnmower strains my skills to the breaking point. Over the last 4+ years of near fulltiming I am amazed at the things I've learned how to do in spite of that.

RE: camping around Denver Colorado

X2 on Chatfield State Park. We stayed there a couple years ago and it worked out great for us. Quick access to highways in multiple directions for going to various places in the area. X3 on Chatfield. Cherry Creek is nice too but the sorrounding area is a little too urban for my taste. On the plus side though, their wifi coverage is better.

RE: Covering rear license plate with gear

I did that for 4 years of near full timing and something like 30k miles. Nobody ever questioned it.

RE: From Windows to Mac--anyone done this?

I have heard this stuff many times over the years about about how great Macs and OS X were. I've owned 2 Macs over the years and could never figure out what was supposed to be so great about them. They were substantially more expensive than any other computer I've ever owned and yet they didn't work any better or do anything better. I couldn't come up with a single advantage to Mac ownership. With my last Mac, when I finally decided I just plain didn't care for it, I gave it to my daughter. After a few months of using it, she asked to be switched back to a Windows computer. I ended up trading the Mac for a Win 7 laptop and feel I got the better end of the deal. On the one hand, I'm glad I at least tried the Mac in order to see thru the hype but on the other hand, it was an expensive experiment. Mac/Windows, Ford/Chevy, Dish/Direct..the whole brand loyalty thing has never made much sense to me. I spent years in various IT support roles and I always told people they are making their choices exactly backwards. Figure out what you want to do. Find the tool(s) you need to do it. Then, last of all, figure out the platform where they work best. Most ignored me.

RE: From Windows to Mac--anyone done this?

I moved a friend from Windows to a Mac a few months ago. After being in the Apple community for several months now (along with the free hand-holding Apple provides), she'll never go back to Windows. If I wasn't running Linux, I'd pick a Mac too. Remember, underneath OSX is Yellow Dog unix. I switched from Linux, AIX and Solaris when I discovered I could do the pointy clicky stuff but still open a terminal window and build open source software.

RE: Planning a 3 week trip (with an RV) on the east coast

That's a pretty ambitious itinerary. I've noticed that folks from other parts of the world where things are closer together sometimes don't quite appreciate the distances that can be involved in US travel. You may not get the most out of some of those stops because of travel time. Just my opinion. A friend from the Cook Islands once made plans to take a bus round trip from Central PA to LA.

RE: Pennsylvania Spots?

Allegheny National Forest, wide range of campgrounds some are primative not more than a parking area and and maybe an outhouse, Red Bridge at Kinzua has hot showers some electric sites dump station the sites near the lake are primative. Hearts Content is primative with a dump station. Allstays Camp and RV App is a good reference for the area. X2 to all that. Plus there are always one or two ANF campgrounds open into December for hunters. I used to go to Tracy Ridge during the first couple weeks in November and usually had the place to myself.

RE: Which automatic sat dish for Dish Network service?

I've had a hopper, Joey and Traveler for quite awhile. Is your hopper and Joey in your house or RV? RV The western arc only factor means the Hopper feature don't always work in the East. I still carry a tripod for those cases.

RE: Which automatic sat dish for Dish Network service?

Whether or not western arc only matters to you depends on both your travel and viewing preferences. It matters to me which is why I regret my Traveler purchase. If you spend little or no time in the eastern half of the country, it doesn't matter. If you don't care about locals or broadcast networks via satellite, it doesn't matter.
