RE: Dog urinating and defecating on your site while owners watch

So, show me where I said it was OK for people to let there dogs poop in other peoples sites, show me where I have "mocked" sanitary practices, please show me. Please! I have made no personal attacks until you decided to jump on me, and I wonder where that is coming from, especially after some of the other comments in this thread. A dog pooped in Ernie's site, the owner did their best to pick it up, now you want everyone to believe the sky is falling. Your going to worry yourself to death before the dog poop gets to you. You can have the last word, and thanks to the Block feature I won't see it. Riley & Kobe the little desease spreaders. :B https://imageshack.com/i/074lenj width=450

RE: Dog urinating and defecating on your site while owners watch

Not all his facts are Scientifically correct I have seen a lot more campers and their kids doing unsanitary things most dogs are treated for worms, along with other things Some people have irrational fears of many things -------------------------------------------------------- I am a scientist, a microbiologist who took a lot of courses at vet school before transferring to medical microbiology for my degree. While I agree there are a lot of things to worry about, like war, it doesnt excuse us from not paying attention to our health. Having spent a good chunk of my life studying microbial diseases, bacteriology, parasitology, virology, immunology, I have a lot of respect for what scientists have learned and have to teach us. And the greatest leap forward in dealing with human disease and increasing the life expectancy of humanity from 30 to 78 years old is sanitation. In the third world countries this is not true due to a lack of sanitation and ignorance. True, it is the death of the young drags down life expectancy averages, but those most susceptible are at both ends of the age spectrum. And I am now, like many of you, at that other end of the age spectrum. So I increasingly take extra care to stay healthy. But I choose to have dogs, birds and fish as pets so I do keep up with diseases that can be transmitted by them. ernie1 didnt give you a complete list of the zoonotic diseases of dogs that can be transmitted to humans, here. The list is not static. Perhaps you have heard of the virulent, toxic strain of E. coli an emerging disease? Dogs can be carriers. This past month my MIL has been hospitalized with C. difficile the bacteria that is increasing in virulence and has been found to colonize dogs intestines (citation. And the simplest and most effective method of avoiding infection is sanitation. So please dont mock those who are concerned about sanitary practices. Those who have many fears will not be found at CG. As far as I know my dogs have no deseases, no worms, etc. They have annual check ups. When my dogs poop I pick it up, that's the best I can do, or I am going to do. If that's not sanitary enough for you, tough. Sorry about your MIL but really your going to blame that on dogs. Oh, and I never mocked sanitary practices.

RE: Dog urinating and defecating on your site while owners watch

Pinworm (Enterobius vermicularis) infections are the most common worm infection in America. Although any individual may develop a case of pinworms, the infection occurs most frequently in school children between 5 to 10 years of age. Pinworm infections occur in all socioeconomic groups; however, human-to-human spread is favored by close, crowded living conditions. Spread among family members is common. Animals do not harbor pinworms - humans are the only natural host for this parasite. Get your facts straight. Drsolo Not all his facts are Scientifically correct as our Mod, who is a Vet, has pointed out. I have seen a lot more campers, and their kids doing unsanitary things, that I would be way more worried about than some dog pee, or poop that was picked up my the owner. As was pointed out by a another poster, most dogs are treated for worms, along with other things, when they get their shots/checkup. Some people have irrational fears of many things, and I think catching a desease from dogs in a Campground is one of them. "Current evidence supports the fact that pet dogs pose a minimal zoonotic risk to their human companions. Your risk may be slightly higher if you have a compromised immune system from disease or medication." I'm not a Doctor, but I do have a degree in Zoology.

RE: Dog urinating and defecating on your site while owners watch

Scoleciphobia (So-leh-kee-pho-be-ah) is also known by other names like Vermiphobia and Helminthophobia. They all mean the persistent and irrational fear of worms. The word Scoleciphobia originates from Greek Scoleci meaning parasitic worms and phobos meaning deep dread or aversion. Helminthophobia is the secondary fear of one’s body being infested or attacked by worms (Helmintho is another Greek word for worms).

RE: Dog urinating and defecating on your site while owners watch

Ernie, I didn't say it was OK, just how would you know. Personally, in this day and age, I would just be happy she picked up the poop. Admin moved it to the correct forum. Certainly not your first go around on this topic, so I'm going to guess you knew the responses you would get. https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/28400363/gotomsg/28405347.cfm#28405347 https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/28347124/gotomsg/28350569.cfm#28350569 https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/28003481/gotomsg/28009748.cfm#28009748

RE: Dog urinating and defecating on your site while owners watch

Ernie, how do you know that the person who had your site previously didn't have five dogs that peed and pooped all over over the place? :E If the poop was picked up, and pee had dried you would have no clue.

RE: RV Warranty Work Anti-Rant

A lot of places have a minimum, so the that could account for the $100.00, and the rest is materials, and shop supply's.

RE: Comcast internet modem

If anyone has Modem that keeps rebooting check the upstream power levels. They should all be under 50. If they are 54 or higher you will get port shutdowns, and reboots. The problem may be the cable line, or too many splitters, and not the modem. My upstream power levels. UCID Freq Power Channel Type Symbol Rate Modulation Upstream 1 3 23.50 MHz 47.50 dBmV DOCSIS2.0 (ATDMA) 5120 kSym/s 64QAM Upstream 2 1 36.50 MHz 49.50 dBmV DOCSIS2.0 (ATDMA) 5120 kSym/s 64QAM Upstream 3 2 30.00 MHz 48.50 dBmV DOCSIS2.0 (ATDMA) 5120 kSym/s 64QAM Upstream 4 4 17.00 MHz 47.00 dBmV DOCSIS2.0 (ATDMA)

RE: Comcast internet modem

Arris TM822G is one of the best Comcast approved modems with telephony. No router built in. Bought ours new on Amazon. Be careful buying used modems that have been previously registered/activated to someone else. Comcast may refuse to activate them. Always check first with Comcast to make sure the Model modem you want to purchase is compatible. Arris MODEL: TM822G ARRIS DOCSIS 3.0 / PacketCable 2.0 Touchstone Telephony Modem HW_REV: 2 VENDOR: Arris Interactive, L.L.C.

RE: Leveling block theft

1775, I also travel similar to the way you do although I will boondock if at all possible. Suggesting your late arrivals encourage theft is ludicrous. In another thread the poster that suggested this nonsense talks about when they arrive at a campground at 9-10 pm they will do quick and quiet leveling if necessary. Kinda Funny. So Oilman, have you read his Blog? 1775 says he arrives late most of the time, even has to inquire if the campground has gates that are locked at night. His stuff is being stolen, this has happened more than once. He says the RVer's he meets in the campgrounds aren't friendly, I wonder why that is? Since there are people who will steal stuff for no reason, I don't think it's ludicrous to think that his camping behavior might give thieves a little more incentive. And if you are going to quote me have the decency not to take what I say out of context. Thanks This is what I said. "For me, I always tried to get in, and set up before dark, Sometimes this didn't work out, but if it was later than say 9 or maybe10 PM, I would just hook up electrical, and crawl into the sack, read, or watch TV. Hoped I was level enough to sleep, but sometimes I had to do some quick, and quiet leveling."

RE: Leveling block theft

Robert, in your blog you say that you often arrive late, set up, then sometimes go to dinner, and return after dark, and then have to go through getting hooked up, and making sure you are perfectly level because you can't sleep if the RV is slightly off. I only meant that this might be upsetting to your neighbors enough that they may have taken your flag, and other things. Just another theory as to why you stuff is disappearing. Like I said, no one should steal anything from anyone, for any reason, but unfortunately not everyone feels that way. This all came about from reading your Anderson Levelers blog post, and if you go through all that at night I don't see how you can be very quiet, even though I'm sure you are trying. If I'm misinterpreting this I apologize. Anderson Levelers

RE: Camper Vans & Class Ber's only. How late is too late?

I think that courtesy should extend both in the AM, as the PM. So how early is too early?

RE: Leveling block theft

You know Robert, from reading your blog, you don't seem to enjoy RVing. Maybe the reason your not meeting any friendly RVer's has more to do with your attitude than theirs. Unlike you, I have met mostly friendly RVer's, and have had made some lasting friendships. We have had several RVer's stay on our property when they were passing through. I think the fact that you come into your campsite late at night, do your hook ups, leveling, etc, may be one of the reasons your stuff is disappearing. Something to consider, eh Oh, and I believe no one has the right to steal anything from anyone, no matter how they may have been provoked.

RE: Leveling block theft

Don't leave anything, but a cheap sign saying "site occupied, will return". If the sign is gone when you come back be happy nothing else was left to be stolen.

RE: Can RV.net stop the spammers?

Every forum is being spammed almost every day. The reason you don't see them is because Admin, is staying up late deleting them, and a few early morning Mods spend their mornings wiping them out. The Mods, and Admin work harder than most members realize to keep things running as smooth as they are. I know this because I was a Mod for several years, and I still have some inside info. :W Thanks, Admin, and the Mods.
