RE: Hanging porta-bote from tc's turnbuckle brackets?

Jat: The RVnet member Skipbee has a Portaboat, and can provide details on mounting it to side of truck camper: ….a mention in a past Post Here is a past link to a step-by-step mounting of Portabote to side of truck camper jack legs: ….making a bracket and mounting Portabote ….several Mid Atlantic truck camper rally attendees own Portabotes, and I have seen (personally) an owner's boat mounted to the side of truck camper (this was at a Northeast Truck Camper rally a number of years ago). So, it is not only possible, but not uncommon.

RE: Interesting delam issue - revised 6-24, more pics

….that enormous one piece nose/undercab/bulkhead "cap" doesn't look to me like FRP / chopped strand (looking at the product obliquely, in your photos)….it could be a thermoset molded piece, lighter than polyester chop strand FRP.....but I could be wrong. ….when (and if) you follow the manufacturer's suggestion, and cut a hole from under the mattress area, rent a micro-inspection camera (like a sea-snake or similar), and have a look at just what is under/inside that sagging "cap" gap, and try and ascertain if moisture may be getting in there. If the back of that molded cap has any delaminated organic material bonded to the backside, any additional bonding you spray in that inspection port may just delaminate again without additional/further measures. You may need to fasten that C-channel along the undercab framing after you apply any adhesive, as insurance against future failure.

RE: loosing old members

Actually KROQ was the precursor to KMET and the others, it was underground FM before FM really took off. And whoya, the fish report with a beat with the jocks you mentioned and the Burner Mary Turner. Hey Whaz! I love these old founding radio stations in the days around the beginning of rock. We have one here too. In Montreal, CKGM/CHOM/CFOX. CKGM (precursor to CHOM FM) played host to some unknown folkie....by the name of Bob Dylan, in 1962. Dylan was paid $125 to play 3 + 1 nights at the Finjan club LOL. Also, CFOX Montreal set up their radio DJs Roger Scott and Charley Chandler in 1969, room 1742 at Montreal's Queen Elizabeth Hotel, and both DJs sung back-up with John & Yoko on their song (broadcast live, t'was a good broadcast), Give Peace a Chance...this version with CFOX DJs singing back-up was recorded on the Apple Records single of the same name LOL

RE: Popup truck camper with soft sides

Don't think a raccoon would be an issue, too low to the ground for one and timid. ...we've had bear on our property eating...berries. Also, have had racoon walk over the hood of the 2500HD with camper popped up (and climb up to the top of our two 4 foot high garbage bins-- the bins locked). All the wile, our Outfitter pop-up was popped-up and parked on our mountain home "campsite". Also, had on 3 occasions, fisher cats fighting it out in our forest less that ~10 feet from our camper at ~2 AM trying to decide which one will decimate our neighbor's 5 chickens-- well, they killed them all that evening just 700 feet away....while we were overnighting in the camper. Our Outfitter stays popped-up nearly permanently over our 3 months of summer (that's all the time we get above freezing here: 3 months a year), on our property parked in our private forest campsite. Never had a squirrel, fisher cat, racoon, bear or any other wild animal with teeth and claws tear through the soft side. Oh, also, we have bobcat, lynx, coyote, and on one occasion, a mountain lion (the mountain lion tore a local horse to shreds a few years ago). We live fairly close to the Green Mountains (a few minutes drive) and huge Maine North Woods (close to 4 million acres of unfragmented forest) and are just about as wild as you can get, here on our property campsite, in the Northeast... Quebec.

RE: Video Watch As Willa Grows To A Monster In Escuinapa

Thanks Mex for the further info on the region. I'm seeing a lot of post Willa Youtube videos now reporting form the region.

RE: Video Watch As Willa Grows To A Monster In Escuinapa

I thought we was pretty much done with these things... .....everything is "out the window" vis storm prediction storm onsets these days. Also, with the incredibly unstable and disorganized and weak Rossby air circulation in the Polar regions spinning off huge masses of cold air that drift down toward the equatorial regions; the planet is seeing completely out-of-character-for-the-seasons brutal cold and subsequent brutal hot spells across all the Earth's continents for at least a decade and a half; modeling for 1 week out, 2 weeks out and seasonals are shot to he**. The Rossby wind circulation around the Arctic is breaking down and disintegrating. Will we see snow down to Raleigh, Memphis, Amarillo latitudes into June in the (near) future? Will we see summer 90F+ up into central Canada to the end of September? And, 50F to 60F up into Quebec for a week in February regularly (like what happened last winter)? Will we see -29F at the end of March (like we saw in Quebec last spring) and 0F to 10F in some locales in the extreme Northeast into beginning of April like last spring? Who knows! One aspect of hurricane prediction that the NHC has down to a near pin-point accuracy, is where hurricanes will track and make land-fall AFTER the hurricane has formed. Its WHEN hurricanes will form that prediction is hellacious with. So, who knows how many more, or, even where and when hurricanes will form ?? We could have hurricanes possibly forming in March and April, and the season going to the end of December for all climatologists/weather predictors know _SHRUG_

RE: Video Watch As Willa Grows To A Monster In Escuinapa

....looks like Nayarit, from Agua Caliente down to San Filipe Aztatan got the worst of it from a sustained winds perspective. Those locales were encompassed by (one of) the ~124 kilometer diameter wind radii with the worst winds. The next, was a 178 kilometer rad. stretched from Mazatlan down to Tuxpan.... Anyone heard anything from "on the ground" sources?

RE: Chain Not So Fast Resaurants

I much prefer if the selection allows it a bird cooked over lena (LAY-nya) rather than (car-BONE) ....that's how (with lena) I used to boil water for my hot cereal, and hard-boiled (non refrigerated) free-range eggs on "La costa Miskitu", where no electricity then existed (nor exists today) LOL ...con poco suerte, I could boil the water in 40 to 50 minutes in the smoke-filled tique walled mud-floored kitchen!

RE: Chain Not So Fast Resaurants

Starbucks coffee outlets are usually packed because of the free Wifi but impossible parking and three dollar a cup plus 16% tax is hard to swallow no matter how tasty the brew. ....LOL....in the "old days", when I lived in the very, very back country of Olancho (Honduras; I lived near San Esteban during the Turcios and Najeras feud and met some of the feuding families on occasion-- this was the longest and bloodiest running family feud in the history of the Americas up to the end of the '90s). I used to toast my own green beans, then grind the roasted beans in a meat grinder, then fill a woman's stocking fashioned around a coat hangar (my filter) with the grinds, put this in the cup and add agua hervida....remove stocking filter with spent grinds, and drink (sin leche condensada) THAT is cafe ranchero :D

RE: Chain Not So Fast Resaurants

Love it! Well elaborated, funny :B ....we'll be eating mostly Yucatec dishes in the Yucatan. My favorites are pollo pibil (not cochinita-- too much lard in that), chilmole, and pescado tikin xic. Also, I can't wait to get my hands on some xtabentun (made in the back country) !

RE: Telcel (América Móvil) looks like the only game in town...

Thanks qtla9111 I'm looking into it. Seems a few years ago I couldn't install it on any of my phones, because the kick-back "PIN" or code they send to e-mail and/or phones (my land and mobiles) wouldn't arrive LOL I'll have to attempt this again... OK....looks like the phone calls can be made VoIP from any phone with an wi-fi capability (just about every phone on the market has wi-fi these days). So, no local "cell" SIM needed (IF one wishes to make IP calls only)....

RE: Telcel (América Móvil) looks like the only game in town...

Whatsapp ...LOL...I'm corresponding with a few contacts in Yucatan, and Whatsapp is just about universally used across Mexico these days.

RE: Telcel (América Móvil) looks like the only game in town...

I used my Telcel in both Greece & Italy over the last 2 years. Much cheaper than my Canadian one ...yeah; I was looking through Telcel's international Europa Preferente travelers plans. These are interesting for sure.

RE: Telcel (América Móvil) looks like the only game in town...

Thanks for all the info guys! Mex: ...I'll be using the phone on the move, so yagi would be out of scope (maybe a short-range pocket-sized multipolarized pyramid for the city?). Movi is interesting, and has good coverage where I need it; a good alternative. Thanks. I've decided to bring down a used unlocked phone I'll buy NOB...I found the cost range for bargain-basement phones a bit pricey across the various Mex carriers and vendedores. Cheers-
