RE: Dog's Sleeping Quarters

don't count on it. dogs are creatures of habit. Maggie the Wonder Beagle usually sleeps under the part of the bed that extends past the platform she sometimes will sleep right next to my side of the bed. when that happens a slight nudge on her bottom with my foot gets her to move.

I-15NB to I-84SB IN SLC

heading back east next week and looking for reports on I-15NB to I-84EB in SLC. i want to avoid the long climb EB on I-80 so my plan was to head north on I-15 to I-84 and then pickup I-80 east, google maps today is showing significant delays on NB I-15 south of the I-84 junction. that jives with a road construction warning from UT DOT. looking for reports on how bad it is from anyone who has been thru there in the last few days. is UT193 between I-15 and US89 and then north on US89 to I-84 an appropriate road for us? 193 is north of the construction zone so this is likely not much of an alternate. i *really* want to avoid the lonnnnnng climb on I-80 so I'd appreciate any info on what to expect running I-15 to I-84. we're overnighting at the SLC KOA on Tuesday night. we can pull out early Wednesday morning to avoid the rush hour traffic...how early would that have to be? we have a long drive to Laramie, WY that day (400-mi) and i'm the only driver so we were going to get an early start anyway. and...none of the maps I have including UT DOT maps show a ramp from NB 15 to EB 84. one does exist, right? looks like it should be around MM340. we're in a 2016 40' ford v-10 gasser towing a jeep suv. thanks.

RE: Windshield covers

Magne shades are very pricy and just the same Hassel as the ones you snap on the out side windshield. Check on what Shade Pro offers at a third of price. no hassel getting it on and off. sure, the first few times are a learning curve but it's a short LC. and it comes off in seconds. to each their own.

RE: Windshield covers

Looking for advise on classA windshield covers we did our reserch on this a few years back and settled on MagneShade and we're very pleased with the choice. we had used the reflective foil on the inside of the windshield for a few seasons and while that worked well in keeping interior temps down we grew tired of perpetual night inside. the MagneShade allows light in but keeps the heat down especially when we're parked facing south or west. no ladders needed, no snaps to install or break.

RE: Highway speeds - Keep your distance!

Good advice but this is a situation that technology will solve over the next 10-20yrs as adaptive cruise becomes standard. adaptive cruise: otherwise known as “i don’t have to pay attention...the car will save me”. until it doesn’t.

RE: What would YOU do???

Simple, I would treat them as I would want to treated.:). Meaning: I would call them, explain, and ask how they wanted to handle it. this! ^^^^^

RE: Any Apple gurus?

.... The big problem now is that I can't do anything other than sign in because I can't remember the EXACT answers to my security questions... one strategy to combat this problem (BTDT) is to use the same answer for all security questions. there is no context between the question and answer so it matters not what one uses as an answer.

RE: Satalite tv

IMO “ CG with good WiFi” is an oxymoron. there’s good wifi and then there’s CG wifi. most CG wifi that i have experienced is fine for e-mail and surfing but not for video streaming.

RE: Jeep Grand Cherokee, experiences, thoughts, opinions?

Jeep and all it's cousins seem to have electrical problems as they age, especially if you live in a snowy area that use road salt. This might take 5-10 years, but it will happen. we’re in chicago where it has been known to snow and none of our jeeps have had “electrical problems”. 2003 Wrangler, 2010 Liberty, ‘46 Willys CJ2A

RE: Can tires be off ground on auto leveling system?

i don't like that either so i carry 8 pieces of plywood in assorted thicknesses to use under the tire(s) when that happens.

RE: rent a car

My turn to rant. So we make a reservation for a rental car at Enterprise for pick up on a friday at 1 pm. when we arrive they tell us they have zero cars. i think how can that be, we have a reservation. they inform us people call to extend there rentals at the last moment which leaves them with no cars. Does this sound like a good business model? after calling other branches hour and half later they find 1 for us. https://youtu.be/4T2GmGSNvaM
