RE: Ram 2500 DEF fluid

Shiner: interesting observations. I'm wondering if rolling coal is a fad whose time has come and gone. There is no emissions testing mandated by Florida; there might be local testing in Southeast Fl counties. I haven't even seen a coal roller with the asinine 6 or 8" stack protruding out of the truck bed in I don't when? What happened?

RE: The strange ramifications of COVID shutdowns

My wife's son says he is limited to 6 guests for Thanksgiving. But 25 can attend a funeral. So his is having a funeral on Nov 26 for his turkey at his home. :B:B::B My condolences to the departed. May he taste great on the 26th and in the days to come.

RE: Elon's Starlink Internet Service

And like anything satellite, cloud cover and precipitation will affect reception. But in areas without access alternatives, it's better than nothing, albeit expensive.The only folks who believe this are the cable company ad-writers. I've had Dish for 22 years now. Never once had an outage for weather, clouds, snow, or rain. There used to be a 20 minute outage twice a year for solar interference, but that has gone away now. Was a Dish subscriber until we sold our house in 2016. Every Spring solar flare, every moderate to heavy summer thunderstorm, every tropical system with heavy squalls, we lost the signal. Even had a tech from Dish come out and check antenna orientation and signal strength. No issues until it rained.

RE: Nascar Follies

Fun Fact: Kevin Harvick had what was probably the best season of career. Most wins, most laps led, most top 5's, most top 10's, 0 DNF'S. Good job with your'playoff' system NASCAR.

RE: Blue Moon....

Missed the blue moon, but SpaceX made up for it with a breathtaking launch from the Cape last night. Perfectly clear sky and a poleward launch trajectory, was able to follow it easily with the naked eye from the moment it rose on the Eastern horizon through first stage separation and second stage ignition.

RE: Dr Doug Question

I've heard that about human beings as well, so this time of year I got the healthiest gut on the planet courtesy of my wife's pie making skills!!

RE: Nascar Follies

Covid or not, fans are voting with their viewing since most races were closed to the public. After an initial bump with the resumption of events, the flat/downward ratings trajectory continues. And it certainly isn't helping the franchise value since the France family still has a "for sale" sign hanging on the door.

RE: Nascar Follies

2 guys win 17 races between them. The guy that held the series lead for nearly the entire season and with nine wins is a spectator next Sunday. The guy with 8 wins barely squeezes in to run for all the marbles. What's wrong with this picture?

RE: Set clocks back today

No....not gonna do it! Oh wait...we don't play that silly game in AZ Wise state, Arizona. In Florida, our senators are trying to introduce federal legislation allowing Florida to be on Savings Time year round. Which would essentially put Florida on Atlantic Standard Time. To what end or benefit, I have no idea. If anything, ditch DST nationwide.....forever.

Sorry to hear Crowe, been there done that times 8, and it's always heart wrenching. Take comfort in the memories, they last forever.

RE: Are other drivers killing your RV experience?

people driving (at night) without turning on their headlights. Just last night, during my 15-mile commute, I witnessed about 10 vehicles without their lights on .Can't say I've ever seen that. Come to Florida. A way of life.:E

RE: Medicare Advantage Plans

Thanks everybody! We have had absolutely no issues with our current plans, guess we’ll leave well enough alone and stick with what we have. Thanks again! Good plan, if it ain't broke......

RE: Fancy Gap VA KOA next weekend

We haven't been with a TT in probably 8 years as we sold ours back then and bought another one this spring. Can't wait! Kind of sad the previous owners sold it a few years ago, but the new ones seem to be doing a great job. One of our top 5 favorite little campgrounds anywhere between VA and NC. Looking forward to see the changes they have made. They always had some of the nicest bathhouses, store, and cabins. Stayed there a week in late October 2009. Was our "base" for Virginia winery hopping, the fall NASCAR races at Martinsville, a trip to Mt Airy NC, and general aimless wandering. One of our most enjoyable RV trips. With the ownership change, I guess the red hen that stubbornly roosted in the road by the office is 'unemployed'.

RE: Medicare Advantage Plans

My wife and I have had original Medicare Parts A&B with a separate Supplemental and Prescription Drug plans for several years now. I was looking at Advantage plans and wondered if traveling from our stick home in Texas to our summer RV site in Maine would be a problem with the Advantage plan. If either of us needed to see a doctor while in Maine, would we be out of luck, insurance wise? Thanks for any of your experienced info! To answer your question, possibly. Advantage Plans typically provide out of network coverage for emergency care only. But if you are back home in Texas, will your doctors be in your plan's network? Advantage Plans refer to "out of network " providers. That statement would be more accurate if it read "completely on your own". Like you, my wife and I have 'original ' Medicare, a supplement, and a Part D drug plan. My wife needed hearing aids, a Costco membership took care of that with reasonably priced and good hearing aids. We have dental insurance as well. More monthly cost than an Advantage Plan, but as long as we can pay the premium, we have no desire to change. Finally, something to consider. If you leave original Medicare, go to an Advantage Plan, and want to return to original Medicare, you will be subject to medical underwriting for a Supplement.

RE: How many Canadian Snowbirds are there?

Don't know actual number of migratory Canadians, but in a recent TV news story on the topic, a spokesman for the state of Florida was quoted as saying winter visitors from Canada generate $3.4 BILLION for Florida's economy annually. That, is not chicken feed!

RE: Unlikeliest of engine swaps!!

I read it, but no detail on what if any front suspension changes were made to accommodate the engine's height and mass. Just stated there was a lot of DIY, but of what besides lead on the firewall and the challenges of mating a tranny to the engine. Curious about emissions as well. Not tested in Canada?
