RE: Can you cook a turkey with a battery charger?

A taser will do a good job, but only in small areas. ;)

RE: Cataract????? ((UPDATE))

So glad you had a good experience. People really don't understand until they have gone through the surgery when you tell them things are brighter, sharper and the whole thing is relatively painless. I guess my most painful (really not pain just discomfort for a couple of minutes) was when they measured for the lenses that were inserted in my eye. They put a cup on the eyeball and then filled it with water or some liquid to allow the machine to measure the contour and such. Technicians did all the really important features. The doctor simply suctioned the old lenses out and put the new ones in and reclosed the little flap about ten minutes actual work on each eye. Congratulations on your vision

RE: Places to see in the Southeast

Someone mentioned the museum in Pensacola. For what it is worth, there is a great museum at Robins AFB in Warner Robins, Ga (just south of Macon east side of I-75. B-1 bomber (BIG mother!!) outside the door. All free. We spent a couple of hours just walking and looking. Retired crews from the flight line do restoration work on a number of old planes there. We saw several P-51s if that means anything to you young folks. To really see and explore, it could take at least a half day inside and nearly as much outside.

RE: Don't forget your helicopter when you go camping!

Most impressive thing we have seen is a Prevost towing a trailer with a Bell Jet Ranger. I believe it was on I-15 between Las Vegas and St George Utah. Nothing like having your toy I guess, but what would he do if he wanted to go out to dinner or to the grocery store?

RE: Places to see in the Southeast

If you want to see swamps (as in Okeefenokee) check the Stephen Foster State Park. You might have a few bugs but not many if you are there in early March. Alligators, canoe/boat rental, lot of photo opportunity. If you are not into swamp, then try the Veterans State Park in Cordele, Ga. Huge sites, wifi and cable. On the shores of Lake Blackshear. Nearby sites include Andersonville Historic site from the civil war.

RE: rt 441 from Cherokee NC to Georgia

What I am saying is that US441 does NOT go through or near Ashville

RE: U-BOAT watch???

Friend of mine runs a fine jewelry store and I could get a 'deal' on a nice Rolex. you know what I wear on my wrist? An old casio that I found in a car that was traded in to our dealership several years ago. Had a broken strap. I have put several batteries in it over the years and it still keeps great time. I have two high dollar watches at home that I should wear but neither keep time worth a darn. So the plastic keeps on going and going

RE: rt 441 from Cherokee NC to Georgia

A little hilly and twisty below Ashville but nice drive all the way to I10 in Florida. Small towns along the way but light traffic. I use it often when not in a hurry. You must be talking about another road. US441 goes across N Georgia (thru Athens, Commerce, Clayton) to Franklin and up thru Cherokee, across the mountains (thru the GSMNP)into Tennessee. It does run the length of Georgia and into Florida.

RE: Staying overnight at Pilot Flying J?

Truck stops generally are pretty loud. FJs usually have RV parking away from the truck parking but still it can be pretty loud for a light sleeper. It can be done however. WalMarts are OK but depends on locations since rednecks like to blowhorns while sitting next to you and then drive off. We have stayed at FJs, casinos, WalMarts, Lowes and Home Depots. Not because we were cheap, but it was late and we did not have a location of a CG close. Best ever was a Cabelas in Mitchell SD. Some of the larger rest areas on the interstates can be OK, but again there is a lot of sleaze that prowl there during the nights - more so in Fall and Spring on the N/S routes. Whatever you do, make sure your towed is locked as well as the compartments on the coach and especially the entrance door. I tell my kids to never open up for any one until they show who they are and they had better be law enforcement with fully visible patrol car and in uniform. There are some nasty, dangerous people out on the road.

RE: bypass Birmingham, AL

Only good thing about downtown B'ham is Dream Land BBQ, but that is a subject for a different discussion. ;)

RE: Yellowstone and 33 foor trailer (bumper to hitch)

Fishing Bridge is pretty much the pits, but it does has water, electric and sewer. Thing is, you will likely only sleep there. There is a lot to see and it is hard to imagine how much driving you will do if you see the entire park. It actually means a lot to us to have the power to heat water and use our own shower rather than one that no telling how many others before you.

RE: Badlands & Custer SP. Difference in June vs August?

"If it were me I wouldn't hesitate to go in June rather than August. August is usually very hot while June is very pleasant. No comparison. Late August will be a bit cooler but still can be very hot and humid. Late June can be getting pretty warm but is almost sure to be much nicer than late August. " I agree. With the prairies greening up the temps still relatively cool your stay will be much more comfortable in June. August is hot, even in the Hills, but especially in the Bad Lands. FWIW - We really don't have a lot good to say about the Bad Lands. Do the loop and take pictures because there are some interesting formations, but we had people come into CSP when we were there talking about spending a week there. A couple or three hour drive through is all I can see it taking.

RE: route clear or not

Spoke with a UPS driver yesterday. He said the roads that washed out are still closed and the waters are going down, but he had parts of I-95 were still closed in the portion near Charleston. I have no direct knowledge, except to say we will not be going that way for several more days

RE: Member "Mandrake"... ?

Remember him well. Also another funny guy but cannot recall his name. Something like a cartoon of a Canadian Mountie (sp??) and he lived near the 'deepest lard mine in Canada. He had some great stories. He had a horse named Horse. Was it Inspector Fenwick? or something close to that

RE: Cataract????? ((UPDATE))

I went through the surgery on both eyes nearly a year ago. No problems except the sky was so bright and blue for a while that it actually was painful. My doc for glasses told me I could have the surgery 'now or sometime in the future, but if I wanted to continue with decent vision I would have to have it. They discussed a pair of new lenses - one for close up (reading) and the other for distance. Insurance would not go for this and I was worried about trying to get used to it causing headaches. No problems with surgery as it took only a few minutes and he loaded me up on happy juice and a lot of deadener for the eyes. I did see a bit of red on the first one (not in focus) that I figure was a blood. No pain at all. The second one he did not give me enough for the eye and it kept . I got scolded for that. However now I have to have reading glasses (10 bucks from the drug store)that I need more and more. We will discuss what can be done when I see him again. Get the surgery - you will not believe how much better things will look

RE: USA Sticker Maps - Settle an argument!

http://m.maploco.com/visited-states/ The web site says states visited, but if you are afraid if having to show proof of camping at some state lines, I would forget the whole thing ;) ;)

RE: Hurricane JOAQUIN

Man drowned in Spartanburg yesterday from flooding and the Hurricane has not even got that far north yet. If it does turn up the predicted path this may be another one like the one that washed out Charleston and Myrtle Beach area several years ago. Was it Hugo maybe?

RE: Diesel Particulate Filter and Diesel Emission Fluid

Like Mark we have a 2008 Freightliner Chassis/Cummins. engine with particulate filter. No problem with it. You will see the temp rise slightly and then fall back within a minute or two. I am not sure this is the 'cleaning' process or not. One time we had an icon come on the screen showing something like a puff of smoke - that may have been the cleaning. Sometimes we will travel quite a bit on long trips, then again (health issues) the coach may sit for a few months. I understand the DEF will get stale after it has been opened and added. I don't know about the system as to how it works, but I do move an occasional diesel truck with DEF in my P/T job. Never had any problems.

Don't make it harder than it is. Small piece of Ebond and roll it down thoroughly
