RE: Walmart camping

It thought it was funny when I saw people setting up camp in local Walmart parking lots. It resulted in laws prohibiting overnight parking at all. Exactly, the city our local Walmart now has regulations about RV parking. There was always 4 or 5 old beat up RV's parked there some even leaked fluids, god only know what. You see the same ones there now but there only there for 1 day. Nothing wrong with spending the night there but living there is another story. There was even a large diesel pusher parked there for several months. It never moved no one was ever around it. My guess they were using the parking lot for storage. Opie431....any rules saying to NOT park are usually city ordinances. Every city has different rules. hotpepperkid......I can't imagine "storing" a DP at Walmart....maybe they're waiting for someone to destroy it so they can get insurance money!!!!!!!

RE: Walmart camping

Why be upset? Lots more sites available at the local campgrounds. With 108 in the valley, I doubt very much there is an available campsite ANYWHERE on the Oregon coast........

RE: Walmart camping

Many people do not realize that you HAVE to make reservations for campsites on the Oregon coast. :) :) Many of those that say "first come/first served" are NOT usually available on summer weekends.......ESPECIALLY this summer with 108 in the valley!!!!! and I'm with the others...why are you ranting about this? Go for a walk on the beach and cool off!!!!!

RE: Coffe pot for boondocking

Okay, this is a thread I have been hoping for. I don't drink coffee (but love coffee ice cream and frappicinos). However, my wife is drinking more coffee now, instead of tea. So, I am trying to make a good cup (or 5) for her when we go camping. I have an aluminum percolator camp pot, but when we used it the first time, many of the grounds fell through. (She brought "fine ground", I found out.) So, my next attempt (heading out Friday for a week) will be to put a filter in the bottom of the coffee holder in the percolator. Does that work? Someone commented about using boiling water to pour over the grounds, using a brewing cone. Does that make a good cup of coffee? If it is too weak, do you just add more coffee to the filter the next time? Can you pour coffee over the grounds again, or put fresh grounds into the filter, then pour coffee over them to make stronger coffee? Thanks for any insight. I have same problem with grounds. I put a filter in then coffee. I'm cheap, I don't put in a LOT of coffee, I boil it for about 10 minutes, then turn it off and let it sit for maybe 5 minutes to let it settle......according to how I am that morning..... DH watches me so I don't try to pour it directly down my throat the minute it's done. :) :) You'll still get grounds in the bottom of the pot, just don't pour it out and you're okay. As for making stronger...:) :) :) :) I leave the grounds in and add more each day...by about day 4 I have to toss them. The coffee seems to get less bitter...it may be my imagination, but dadgum I like it. :)

RE: Can't figure out the sofa!

our '84 Alpenlite just had a jackknife sofa. You put your hand under the middle of the seat (bench) and pull up and out...UP and out..not out and up.

RE: Shade screen - ideal height?

Ours is 8 feet. We are able to bungy it to stakes out a ways....at an angle. :) :) Gives us more patio space.

RE: poor customer service

I just ran into the same problem with a quilting supply source. Only they said it would ship in 7-10 days. After 2 days the email I got said "order complete". They took the money out immediately, but 20 days after I placed the order I called. She said they hadn't shipped yet because they didn't have all of the order!!!!!!!! I kindly suggested they change their website info page to EXPLAIN that rather than say "order complete". She got nasty with me.....I won't order from them again...

RE: Walla Walla to Lakeview OR on 395

395 is a beautiful drive. Walla Walla to Pendelton is fairly flat. You have a climb out of the Columbia basin through the Blue Mountains and down to the John Day valley. Stop at the Kam Wa Chang pharmacy in John Day. South of John Day you have another moderate climb and decent to Burns. From there its fairly flat easy drive to Alturus,CA. If you need a stop overnight, be sure to check out Goose Lake State Park on the OR/CA border. This year its mostly dry because of lack of snow pack, but a beautiful park none the less. As an alternative, I would suggest 97 south to LaPinen and SE on 31 to 395 just north of Lakeview. Another very interesting drive. Goose Lake is almost totally dried up for the last few years. I think we're losing that lake!!!

RE: Lowes AND Home Depot-horrible quality

We've never experienced that.....I think it's YOUR stores. We've found the quality in many things to be superior to what we could get in a "small box" store.

RE: You are NOT going to believe this!!

FEDEX do it. I mailed bolt in regular envelope in the state via USPS and 3 days later it is still not delivered. Putting a bolt in an envelope???? Seriously???? Envelopes go thru a machine...you probably had it kicked out before it hit the machine and ruined it!

RE: Scary New Credit Card

A little off topic but ironic, last night we got an email from one of our banks about suspicious activity. We are in MD but it seems someone in MO tried to use our "card". We have our cards in our possession so someone must have manufactured new plastic based on our magnetic strip. This is reason for the new chips, to stop magnetic strip theft from happening. Sounds good...but can you explain why our friend....and his business has had 4 cards hacked this past week......and ALL of them have the chip????????

RE: It's hard to believe people are that dumb...........

Unfortunately, the people who do this, will never understand what they did wrong or why it was a bad idea. Well, maybe the guy who put his kid on the back of the bull understands. And they are the first ones to insist the bison be "put down"......because they're not safe.
