What's the big deal on changing clocks?

For an RVer.

I've changed 2 times in one day several times in long tows.

One day three times. Left El Paso on US-180 headed east, changed from Mtn to Central TZ at Culberson County line near Guadalupe Peak, changed from Central TZ to Mtn TZ at NM border south of Carlsbad, changed from Mountain to Central TZ again at TX border just past Hobbs.

Headed west is better because you gain an hour at each crossing.

I won't even mention the potential fun in Arizona where much of the state does not do DST, and the Navaho Nation does DST.


But, but, if you stay heading west all the time, you will never get old and die since the clocks stay moving back. [emoticon]

I'll never have to worry about that again. Moved out of Cali 6 months ago to AZ. And didn't Cali vote it in to do away with the time change like a few years ago? What happen to that? Must be a Newsome thing.

There's currently a bill in committee in the US Senate to make DST permanent year round. This is the third year in a row that Sen. Rubio has introduced the same bill. Maybe this will be the year... Or not...

Most of my clocks do that automatically
As does my favorite watch
Though I need to get it worked on a bit 4 minutes and a few seconds off. (need to reset the hands since the internals should be within a fraction of a second all the time)


Home was where I park it. but alas the.

No - you lose more if you go far enough west, springing forward 23 hours.

The US Navy once took away my daughter's birthday.

On Dec 4, 1982, we left Seattle on a Northwest flight that was running late, leaving about 9 pm. We arrived in Tokyo at 1:15 AM on Dec 6.

After a 3 hour ride to Yokosuka, we got up at about 9 local time to look around the base. My daughter, whose birthday was Dec 5, was upset that she did not get a birthday on her birthday.

Of course, now she say's she is a year younger than her DL says saying "The US Navy took away my birthday in 1982, so I'm a year younger than you think."

I gave up telling that to people I know. They just answer that their only clock is their phone and it changes automatically.

I recently tried to warn some friends about a possible power outage and I told them to make sure that their flashlights all had fresh batteries. There response was that the only flashlights they own (in a house with 5 people) was on their cell phones and they had extra power packs for those.

They also don't listen to tornado warnings, have smoke detectors/carbon monoxide detectors, or keep their vehicles gassed up.

I give up .

Same thing happened in Florida. The state can pass it but it takes the Congress of the United States to approve it. Not a Newsom thing.
