RE: California Bill 1346

I have not looked up and read the bill, but if it is (like the others) just a ban on selling new, then that won't effect me taking my 1973 motorhome with a same vintage Onan generator there. Matt I also wonder if an RV generator is "portable"? Our Onan was affixed to the chassis - it's not like we could take it into the backyard to power the party lights....

RE: Dealing with the "Barfmeister"

I agree to get a check up with the vet to rule out serious issues. My thought since it is phlegm coming up that maybe he has acid reflux. That can cause vomiting hours after eating. I've had three dogs who had a tendency toward "yellow foamy" throw up two or three times a week. My vet recommended famotidine (generic Pepcid) for the first one and it worked wonders. So for the other two I just went ahead and gave it a try, and it worked for them, too. If it's mainly happening in the morning sometimes making sure the dog has a couple of dog biscuits or other bland bedtime snack can help, IME. For some it seems to happen when their tummy gets too empty. I DO give a bedtime snack of a Milkbone, just so there's something in their stomachs - and I also read up on how a gallbladder really functions; so I'm going to try eliminating any fatty additions to his regular food and see if that helps. Part of this plan will involve using a shock collar - on my husband who insists on sharing everything he eats with the dogs..... ;-)

RE: Dealing with the "Barfmeister"

I agree to get a check up with the vet to rule out serious issues. My thought since it is phlegm coming up that maybe he has acid reflux. That can cause vomiting hours after eating. I had been wondering if dogs can have this. Many years ago, my previous Aussie would forget to eat for many hours, then vomit up the "yellow foamies". I'd give him a piece of bread with Pepto soaked into it - he'd eat it grudgingly - but that seemed to calm his tummy and after a bit, he'd be able to eat some dog food. But I would kind of know what was coming - his stomach would be growling like a cat fight. Augie shows no signs of upset stomach, ever. Eats his food - then we cross our fingers because it could come back up real soon - or many hours later; or most times, not at all. I guess I'll have to find a local Vet while we're in FL. Thanks, everyone!

Dealing with the "Barfmeister"

Augie is a 2 yr old Australian Shepherd who clearly has a "fussy tummy". A few times per week I find myself cleaning up barf :-( He gets fed twice a day, dry food (Diamond Naturals "All Life Stages") plus little bits of "people food", although he gets less and less of those treats as I try to figure what is causing everything he eats to reverse course. He also gets a Milk Bone at night, so he doesn't have an empty stomach all night. A forensic examination of what I'm cleaning up (at least now in his adult years), generally shows there was a buildup of either the "yellow foamies", or simply a bunch of phlegm. It's certainly NOT consistent, as though he had a food allergy. He's not sick, or showing signs of allergies - he's playful, energetic, has a gorgeous silky coat, etc. I also realize that dogs are able to barf if the slightest thing upsets their tummies. My other dog Ben eats the same stuff and never upchucks. So here are my questions: can dogs suffer "post nasal drip"? I'm wondering what is causing all the phlegm. I kind of doubt it's external stuff like pollen, since Augie is equally as barfy back home in Michigan. Or is there something I can give him to either cut back on the phlegm, or to ease his touchy digestive system? After he loses his dinner - I'll put some more dry food in his dish, he'll eat it happily and it stays down. Thanks for any tips I can try!

Thank you for being the voice of reasonableness, Mark. My husband likes to watch the financial channels and that's all they are talking about

MSNBC is saying this morning that researchers suspect that the current monoclonal treatments aren't going to work with the Omicron variant?
Deb and Ed M 11/30/21 06:46am Around the Campfire

Judging by the reaction on Wall Street this morning, investors are freaking out about this one, too? I've never heard the talking heads on CNBC mention a "new variant" so many times - clearly they are anticipating global supply-chain disruptions. The Delta variant was barely a blip on Wall Street's radar. I'm hoping they are over-reacting.

RE: Tybee Island Fine Me Beach

Most beaches don't allow dogs, so I have no problem with these rules. I'll bet it's a nice clean beach!

RE: Scary GMC commercial

There's a point in life when one has to put down the keys... I'm (hopefully) quite far from that point, still being solidly middle-aged with kids in high school, but would really like to be able to maintain independence a little longer once I do reach that point, and see self-driving cars as a means to that. I hope they get there. Ed, a true Car Guy, would hand over his car keys only with a gun at his head; but admits that self-driving vehicles could certainly be our saving grace as we get old and feeble. But for now - we are fiercely resisting.....LOL! Re the GM commercial - I too found it scary, especially when they show it towing a trailer. My brain immediately wonder how that will react if the trailer has a blowout. Will the self-driving vehicle see flashers ahead and smoothly pull a lane over? Does it understand that in the fall, deer are on the move and more likely to jump out at you? Or can it notice the poorly-secured load on the truck ahead of you? (I realize the caveat is that the person with their butt in the driver's seat is supposed to be paying attention; but I suspect they won't be) IMO, there's too many things that can happen while driving - a real human brain is still required.

RE: Can't imagine a world without internal combustion engines

Electric, at its current state, simply won't work for us. Little EV cars might make great grocery getters/errand runners; but anything that needs to run for an extended time, needs an engine. Tell a farmer or cross-country truck driver they can't have an internal combustion engine.....LOL! And where I live in Michigan - the infrastructure won't support charging a bunch of EVs - my lights flicker when my neighbor turns on his table saw....LOL!

RE: Nice Story about class C use

I remember wondering how often we would actually use an RV if we bought one....LOL! Like you - our Class C was on the go a LOT: the favorite use for it was to take the family (adult kids and grandkids) to the local park. It provided a clean potty, a kitchen for lunch or snacks/beverages; and a place for tots to take a nap while older siblings played with cousins :-)

RE: Sold RV and toad

As we age, we've downsized our RVs - we currently have a small TT and a TC. But I suspect a Class B in our future

RE: New Truck, 2013 Northstar Pop Up

Glad to help! That stuff was amazing on our trip to Alaska - when we pulled it off at the end of the trip, about 900-lbs of dead bugs went with it....LOL! The motorhome was pristine underneath. There were a few places where some residue remained - a quick rub with some Goo-Gone fixed that. It's hard to put on smoothly, since most surfaces on a vehicle have some curves, but who cares? I just flatten it out and leave it alone. It works fine.

RE: I think I am beginning to understand...

We had driven to Portland, OR to visit my daughter and her family - we had a popup truck camper and boy, was I glad for that! Daughter's small cars couldn't carry all of us to the interesting places she wanted us to see/visit, so we followed with the truck/TC. Daughter CLEARLY had no concept of where an RV can or cannot go - but narrow, steep roads with low overhanging branches (or tight urban streets) simply didn't pose a problem and we visited some amazing places!! Biggest drawbacks to a p/u TC: even less storage space (no overhead cabinets). The climb in and out of a small door. However, IMO, the ability to go where a large SUV can fit, is priceless! And we were able to camp in some incredibly-beautiful places along the Oregon coast!

RE: New Truck, 2013 Northstar Pop Up

I have a Northstar PU TC 8' floor, that I haul on a 6-1/2' bed truck with the tailgate lowered. Before loading, I just cover the back of the tailgate with Transit Shield (also called Tansport Wrap) to protect it. I'm still using the stuff I bought in 2006 to go to Alaska (and used it to protect our Class C.)

RE: Potential Pop-Up TC.....Thoughts on a Hallmark Guanella?

I realize a Hallmark is a top-tier brand - but for something that's going to spend a lot of time sitting around.... I paid $3500 for a 2000 Northstar popup, and it was pristine. I don't feel the slightest twinge of guilt that it's sitting in the garage for 6 months ;-) If money was no object, though - the Guanella looks amazing :-)

RE: I like it!

I can see where the rear deck makes the whole camper "feel" more spacious, just like my deck at home is an extension of our living area. But realistically, we don't sit in one place long enough to make deploying the deck worthwhile. And if we ARE going to sit in one spot for a long weekend, we take the 20' TT, simply because it's a "palace" compared to the TC....LOL!

By 11PM last night, my vaccinated arm was achy and my temp was up a whopping degree. LOL! This morning, arm is still achy, but that's it. Ed said the same for him.

Woohoo! Ed and I got Moderna #3 today. It's been 5 hours - zero side effects, so far....

RE: Anyone dribble their gray ?

I won't dump (or even dribble) gray. If each successive camper dumps their gray - it turns into a stinky/slimy mess. There's also food particles in it, which can attract unwanted visitors like rodents/skunks, etc
