RE: Which shocks?

I just put the Bilstein 4600 on my 2015 Chev 2500 4x4 ... very nice ride, much improved. I'd buy them again if I ever need new shocks on any truck I own.

RE: Hose question........

Water Right 400 Series Polyurethane Slim & Light Drinking Water Safe Garden Hose, 25-Foot x 7/16-Inch, Brass Fittings, USA Made Not the cheapest, but will not kink -- excellent drinking water hose ... Found it on Amazon at the recommendation of our Mod ... Different colors and different lengths ... I'd just use a regular garder hose for the waste flush ...

RE: Who is ready for College baseball regionals and CWS

One thing I notice about College, every player plays every play and every game to win it. When we watch MLB, it almost seems the first half of the season, the players just warm up and see who falls where before a push at the second half to get into playoffs. Maybe it's related to a fear of injury??? Looking forward to the CWS games, for sure. Altho, we all find it easy to predict and forecast, any team can win on any given day ... I just hope all games stay competitive. I'll be rooting for Martin to carry home that trophy after all this time, but agree Vandy is the team to beat...

RE: New member from Oklahoma

Welcome aboard ... You ever go to the Oklahoma Forestry Heritage Center?? Great place, nice campground. I highly recommend it to everyone that passes thru Oklahoma, altho, it's a bit distant and out of the way, the trip is worth every mile. Great history of the forestry, and some amazing woodworking. Extraordinary lathe work and woodcarving ... will try to post some photos.

RE: Who is ready for College baseball regionals and CWS

It's a great statistic and a great record 40-40, Mike Martin. But I wonder how many times we'll hear it over the series. The announcers wore it out during the FSU game ... Speaking of announcers, the other day (a thread) we were discussing announcers, good or bad surely makes or breaks enjoyment of the game ... That day, I nearly spit out my drink when the announcer called an unassisted 3/6 double play. 1st baseman caught a grounder, stepped on first, threw to second for a tag out. Yes, a double play, but not a true force double play in that sense because the runner is no longer forced once the batter is out at first. AND certainly NOT unassisted unless he was playing two positions - First and Short. Must be really, really fast on his feet. HAHAHAHAHA made me LOL Announcers are often like weathermen - state what they think should happen, and call it. Sometimes, an 'opps' after and a correction, often not. Sometimes, it's like they are watching a different game :)

RE: Do you unload when you camp? Really?

I can think of only three reasons why We (TC people) buy TC instead of other RV... We want to fit any campsite - even small sites in NPS or St Parks. We want our truck for exploring, easy off - easy on, or take camper to explore and may not return to same CG if we find an interesting area. It's small enough to take it or leave it, depending on plans or surprises. We want to tow a boat or cargo trailer (ATV, Bikes?) Otherwise, it's small, altho, our backyard is the entire wilderness. Or any combination --- we are not limited.

RE: Who is ready for College baseball regionals and CWS

Surprised UCLA gone (my alma mater :( ) ... Florida looks tough, even tho a low seed. Would be nice if Mike Martin went home with a CWS win in his final season ... Forty years in anything (especially putting up with college kids) deserves a prize :) Michigan beat UCLA, but I believe Vanderbuilt showed up with the best total package, offense and defense. Just a gut feeling ...

RE: Do you unload when you camp? Really?

It depends on where we are, and where we want to explore... Sometimes, the TC can't go where we want to drive. Easy on, easy off, that's why we have one.

RE: Tire question?

And regarding the change all 4 tires after a flat, that is totally subjective and situation specific too. The last time I had a flat on the trailer I changed the other 3, the 4 tow vehicle tires, my wifes 4 tires who was following me at the time, and my next door neighbors including all the spares. You can never be too safe. Love it, why did I think of that last time ... :) :) :)

RE: East Tennessee

A little farther, but "Land of the Lakes" is a great place - large enought to have fun, but small enough to enjoy. Hummingbirds, elk, deer and other interesting views. It runs a hose section too, if interested.

RE: $100 per night

KOA rural seem much better and less cost then close in city. Otherwise, we skip KOA due to fees and attitude.

RE: First RV

The 'small things' you fix youself - get good at it. The major things the dealer or mfgr should fix (fridge, heater, elect system) ... again, get good at fixing (small repairs) your RV and you'll love it. Read the reviews (not the dealer sales/site reviews, but other reviews sites Most are in reasonable shape, learn how to take care of it - because after the warrenty (such as it is) you'll need to fix minor issues. Leave major issues to the Pros. Just enjoy it ... pick a good one. Listen to RV.net about what you choose - ask questions, listen to the answers. Pick those posters that seem knowlegeable. Ignore the rest. Good luck...

RE: Hero or Irresponsible?

Leaving cell phone not as ridiculous, as it often has no service in the 'hiking areas' -- leaving water bottle the ultimate stupidity ... Not a hero here, just a self-internalized woman who cost many folks a huge inconvenience and cost. Glad she made, hope she learned a lesson. I expect she will now become a famous lecturer on how NOT to equip for a loner hike and make a fortune.

RE: Who is ready for College baseball regionals and CWS

I truly believe a sport broadcast will LOSE audience if the announcers are bad or mis-call a game. FANS are FANS, we KNOW the game, and when announcers claim expertise and then blow a call again and again, it detracts from the "watch"... I somtimes mute the sound, but wife knows less about baseball, so wants to hear it. I explain the miscues, and she's getting more into it, and we both get a laugh. Announcers are beginning to take after to two everyday weathermen, Mr. Guess and Mr Hope ... at least the weathermen sometimes admit a goof the next day, ESPN ignores it ... MLH playoffs (Bruins vs Blue) has the best announcer I've even heard in hockey - don't know his name, will check it Wed. Excellent command of the players and the game. HE must have ten eyes to watch that puck. :)

RE: Who is ready for College baseball regionals and CWS

Yes, looking forward to watching the players... We are connected to CCBL on Cape Cod (Summer league) we almost always have players that come to us after CWS each year.... Anyone watch Old Miss vs Vanderbilt (V won, 11-10) but the announcers were awful, watching some other game, the way they announced, or mis-announced. Read statistics mindlessly about other issues it appeared, maybe off the PC board -- missed numerous plays, and made adjunct calls after the fact - often mistakes, and kept right on talking. Great game, horrible game-call.
