RE: Interesting dog names

Our dog was named Joy. Stopped at a motel in Winnemucca NV for the night. Went out about six am with Joy to do her business. As I stepped out of the room a lady next door did too. Dog runs over to greet her, I said, Joy, come here. Lady with eyes as big as saucers said is the dogs name Joy? I said yes and she said, "so is mine!!" That was several years ago and I still laugh, I hope she does too.

RE: Can't overcome the fear of buying a Truck and TC.......

I retired sooner than I had planned. Wife and I traveled a lot, I have great memories,she has dementia but enjoys me relating them to her. I'm thankful I quit when I did. Even though she's still home, I miss her. If you got the bucks, go while you can and don't look back.

RE: SEMI cameras

Last week I braved the wilds and drug my RAH camper through the hiways of Atlanta, a situation reminiscent of driving through St. Louis and worse than the Los Angeles system. But away I went. There is no way he could see over his hood at ‘lil ol me’. When you're good, you're good!;) Fill ’08 GL 1800 Pulling a ’80 Eagle 1 Trailer or ’12 Roll A Home (wide bed, brakes) GWRRA

RE: Oregon rules for pumping gasoline & covid-19

New Jersey was the only place that I recall was backwards enough to not allow one to pump their own gasoline. bumpy back in the "day" you not only had someone pump the gas, they washed thee windows, checked the oil, tested the battery and aired the tires and gas was .29 cents a gallon! I miss the good ole days Lee

RE: Yosemite

I do not recall the Priest grade section of Highway 120 being too difficult.... yes curvy but no excessive grade in my opinion. Lived there for 20 years and drove it often. Then again, that was 20 years ago. Note: Not to be confused with Old Priest Grade road, which is likely impossible for an RV,! Agree with this. New Priest grade is a comfortable but curvy road, not to steep. I drove trucks hauling gasoline over it for 25 years and my pickup more than that. The steepest spot is just out of Big Oak Flat going west but it's short. Gear down here. You didn't say what you're driving/pulling but it's not a bad road, take it slow, you should be fine.

RE: Autopay anyway!

Interesting, I ask for someone to "reach out" and help and get no response from GS. Another poster after me complains and someone "reaches out" right away. Choice of words I guess. Anyway, I no longer need your help, after spending an eternity on hold I was able to talk with a live person who says they have reversed the charges. Next step, cancel GS account then the CC. By the way, I've been with you since 2004

Autopay anyway!

Sometime back, maybe a month, I talked with a GS RS agent and asked my account be taken off auto pay (no way to do that on website). I was assured it was removed. Unfortunately I trusted the agent (my mistake) and did not record time date and name. Today I see I have been billed for another year against my wishes. I have been on hold for about 1/2 hour waiting to talk with an agent to try and reverse this. Go figure, all agents are busy, how convenient. I had decided I no longer wanted or needed GS RS, hence the request to not auto renew. This is shady at best and unethical but from what I read here this is SOP anymore for GS. Honestly I have no problem with the service, I just don't need or want it anymore. I would appreciate it if someone from GS RS would "reach out" to me and fix this. Lee

RE: Giving it up

Thank you to all who expressed sympathies and good wishes. My bride and I had 20 years camping and traveling and were blessed to see so much of this great land. I cannot fathom ever enjoying camping alone especially with all the memories with her but like they say, "never say never". The Aliner, even tho paid for needs to go. Memory care ain't cheap and it's an asset sitting in the driveway. Again, thank you all for the well wishes. Lee

Giving it up

I posted a while back asking opinions on living in a travel trailer. Lot's of good advice and suggestions. Just thought I'd give an update. My wife is in Memory Care in Fresno and I have decided to stay in the family home to be able to visit her when this Covid thing lifts. Selling the Aliner as camping and traveling without her holds no lure for me. It's been a great time traveling this nation with her next to me but time to "give it up". Not much joy in life now. Stay well and cherish those you love, time is fleeting to do that. Lee

RE: Living in a Trailer

Again, I thank you all and especially appreciate the voices of experience. I threw this out here to see what others either have done or would do, I'm not disappointed. All good advice and all worth considering. There are upsides and downsides to each option. Sell the house, buy a trailer, keep the house, buy a trailer. I know I need to take my time and will altho I would like to make a decision by late spring. Also, thank you for your sympathy, it's much appreciated. I lost my first wife to death by cancer, now my second wife to dementia. Believe me, the death was easier to handle. Sincerely Lee

RE: Living in a Trailer

All good advice. First I should have said I am 81 and my DW is 90, she has dementia and has had for over 5 years now. I am putting the Aliner up for sale as it is for camping only and would be really tiny to try and live in. At my age the home is becoming more and more difficult to maintain even tho I am in good health.Cost of maintaining a trailer is almost nothing compared to maintaining this home. I have two daughters in The Boise area and a son in Fresno. I'm not interested in travel, we were blessed to do plenty of that before the dementia came along. I want, as some have suggested, to be able to summer in Idaho and winter in California. Don't intend to get anything bigger than what my Canyon can tow. Many decisions to make in the coming months and I'm getting what I asked for from this forum, opinions, experience and advice. Thank you. Lee

RE: Living in a Trailer

Thank each of you for you input. I know I need to give it time. Each decision from this point on will be difficult but not as difficult as placing her there. I like the idea of living in a trailer and know I can get by with little. I.m in the same kinda situation as TenOC and thinking along the same lines. Kids get what they want, salvation army the rest.Anyway I thank you all. Won't be doing anything for a couple of months at least but feel I need to move forward.

Living in a Trailer

Sadly I just placed me wife in a memory care home and find myself facing life alone. Thinking of selling the house (too many reminders here) and buying a travel trailer to live in. Looking for input from anyone that has done this. Do you stay in campgrounds or mobile home parks? Is either option cost effective. I have family here in California as well as Idaho and want to spend time in both locals. Please share with me your experiences, both good and bad. Thank you Lee
