RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Happy Birthday to your mom! :D

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Ours have brought all kinds of prey over the years from snakes to mice and rats and bats and moles. We had one that liked to go after scorpions. Another wouldn’t leave skinks alone until she was poisoned by the toxins in the tail. They flushed her out with IV solutions but she always walked with a funny stagger after that.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Sounds like the ripple effect from COVID. I'm sorry for all of them in these uncertain times. Hopefully the buyer of your sis's house still has a job and will still go through with it. Glad your mom likes the 5ver. We could do with some rain to get rid of the pollen. Everyone starts to get paranoid when someone with allergies sneezes. Tell your sis to hang in there. As for the boys, I don't blame them. We had a cat that loved to sit in the rain and swim in the bathtub. Takes all kinds I suppose.

RE: Emergency Travel - Texas to South Georgia?

A quick search turned up a tv channel in Georgia. Apparently the GA governor is signing a "Shelter in Place" Order which may impact campgrounds too. LINK Call ahead and ask. Those phone numbers are on the internet now.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Rudy's vision is just fine. He's simply afraid of anything new. PTSD then. We're getting you're rain and fog today. It's dropping the pollen numbers drastically. Thankfully.

RE: What is MISSING from your RV Park?

We camp mostly in state parks because they usually have plenty of trees and more space between the sites. We try to avoid campground that resemble parking lots where the rvs are packed in like sardines. Many cgs lack space between their sites. I’ll put up with gravel and dust if I don’t have to be parked within 25 feet of another site.

RE: Questions on using a Dutch Oven

Vintage, like regular ovens cast iron DOs vary between manufacturers. Everything from thickness of the iron to the type of iron formula and casting will factor into it. Types of briquettes vary in temp output too. Most DO chefs find a charcoal they like and stick with that brand so they know what to expect. Like a large number of DO chefs I use the basic Kingsford. If you have Lodge, start with the basic Lodge chart and just start cooking. There’s no teacher like experience. Remember that cooler weather and windy weather will affect the times and temps because you are outdoors instead of indoors. Humidity can als affect it. These aren’t like “set it and forget it” slow cookers. They need to be watched and smelled. That means staying close by to detect burning. If you think it’s burning remove coals and let the temp drop some. If it’s not cooking fast enough add coals. It’s more an art form than an absolute science but I’m pretty sure most people can master if they’re willing to put their mind to it. It just takes practice. Here’s a copy of the Lodge chart to get you on your way. It gives approximates for the different size ovens. Lodge Baking Temperature Chart.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Rudy acts like he might have some vision problems so he's reluctant. He might also have a little PTSD from his former life. We've had dogs like that. Our weather's been pretty decent but there's storms headed our way.

RE: Questions on using a Dutch Oven

Yep. Everyone's covered it. Welcome to the Cast Iron Chef club.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

I'm wondering about the butter too. What's up with people? When it rains our cats shrug their shoulders and take over the bed. Or conduct a couch coup d'état. I'm with you on the tourists. I see where the governor of Rhode Island is having their enforcement stop cars with New York plates and making them quarantine. I don't blame her.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

It's getting mean out there. We're glad you get to go to the senior hours. We go every chance we can to avoid the crazy angry going on. From what you describe Costco is doing a better job of cleaning their equipment than some emergency rooms I've been to. "Let's be careful out there". Esterhaus.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

The CDC, John Hopkins, Oxford, and even New York City and a lot of others are taking HCQ and Azithromycin seriously. Lots of medical trials have begun already. There are several first hand patients that are telling of their own success. No one is saying it's the silver bullet but their is no room to not take is seriously. CDC John Hopkins Oxford and New York City Additionally, some New York patients are receiving vitamin C intravenously to improve their ability to recover. Link As more people are tested, more are identified. Each surge reflects the availability of the tests and their results coming back. There are also people who have not been tested, are asymptomatic, but are carriers. That's why it's a good idea to self isolate. The person standing next to you may not be coughing or sneezing but they can still be carriers.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Glad to hear that April 4th is magic day. Funny how some are happiest when they're worried. You should video the boys first encounter of the stair kind.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

You have a fantastic sanctuary there. You're pretty blessed. Rudy reminds me of a relative of mine. He doesn't like change either.

RE: Army Corps Of Engineers Parks Are Closing?

Try the state parks. Some are staying open. There's a number of them in the same area as Gunter Hill. Here's a link to a map of them. Map of AL State Parks

RE: Reuben Casserole

Sounds like a great make-ahead dish if it tastes better the second day. When corned beef and swiss cheese are restocked I'll have to give it a try.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Yep-same here. We have milk, bread, eggs and booze in the stores. No tp, one package of paper towels. The store started putting beer and wine on the shelves that used to have the tp. I think they're trying to lighten the mood. Saw a lot of out of state cars in our Walmart parking lot. Someone said they rolled into town to do a tp grab so they can scalp customers. If that's what they're doing then that's just wrong. Glad to hear the fur-boys are okay and that your sister found what she wanted and quickly too. I'd say it couldn't have been planned better. Two more planks to do. I stopped at 1830. Will put in the last two tomorrow. I'm getting too old for this.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Roger that about feeling the age. Finished pulling up the decayed decking. Still working on putting in the new planks. It's good that the FW can be useful for your mom. We use our mh as a tiny home for visiting family. I'm hearing about people buying up older TTs and fixing them up as tiny homes. Whatever works. Semper Gumby indeed.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

It's always great getting a good contractor willing to work. That and a reliable septic guy. And electric and plumbing guy. We're going to have to replace part of our deck. I started pulling up decking today. When the new planks are installed I'll put some of that protective coating on it from HD. Our dog and cat have been trading spots on the bed. We end up pretzeled and sore by 2 am. Both have their own beds but they see us as the pack leaders so its imperative they sleep with us. According to them. :R

RE: Tims Ford SP to St. Louis, via Vogel SP

Vogel SP has both water and electric. No sewer, just a dump station. You should be able to fit in just about every rv site there. Word of caution: some of the COVID 19 patients will be under quarantine/housed in trailers in a GA St. Pk. Don't recall which one so call Vogel and find out if it's them.
