RE: Towing TAG with Forester

A tow tagging system is a way to track vehicles using GPS technology. A tow tag is a small device that attaches to the vehicle's frame or bumper. When activated, the device sends out a signal that can be picked up by a receiver mounted on the vehicle being tracked. Possibly, but totally irrelevant to this conversation. How is it hard for people to recognize spammers? Member not found.

RE: Where are you going?

No desert for us this year. hopefully one of your guests will bring some pumpkin pie for you! :) Plenty of dessert, but no desert.

RE: Where are you going?

I KNOW. I can't believe it. We're accidentally having twenty people over for Thanksgiving tomorrow, and most of them are staying over until Sunday. No desert for us this year.

RE: Where are you going?

We're staying home for the first time since 2004. Enjoy the desert without us. We're looking forward to the New Year trip though. Can't wait.

RE: Question for class A and C people with toads!

Our fiver is ~45' long, so we carry that much of everything in case the pedestal is too far away: * Shore power cord * Shore power extension * Two fresh water hoses * An extendable tank flush hose * A bunch of dump hoes I don't like connecting the dump hoses because it's a coin toss whether the couplers will leak, but luckily we don't have to use them very often.

RE: Where to for Thanksgiving?

My wife reminded me last night that I “volunteered” to help out with her office potluck today, so I got up early and baked five loaves of bread and made two pounds of butter. Good stuff. Did you actually make the butter ? I've seen articles about how to do it but, it is to difficult for me . It's probably the easiest thing I've ever made. Don't tell my ancestors. :B I poured a liter of heavy whipping cream into my wife's KitchenAid and turned it on. About eight minutes later I turned it off and drained off the liquids (kind of like buttermilk, except it's not cultured and not really buttermilk). Turned it back on and drained the liquids three or four more times until all of the butter was stuck inside the whisk and mixing it didn't make sense anymore. I squished it with a spatula to see if I could squeeze out any more liquid and then quit. Finally I put it into some cheesecloth to see if I could squeeze out any more liquid. It didn't yield any more liquids, but it formed it into a pretty ball. I called this "done" and put the ball into a crock bowl to take it to the potluck. I think I spent more effort washing the bowl than making the butter. I think the only easier task in the kitchen has been opening a beer. This fresh whipped butter tastes pretty amazing. I probably won't do this for our everyday butter because of the time to clean up, but I'll definitely do it every time I bake. And I wouldn't use this butter for other baking just because it seems too hard to measure it out for the recipes. Anyway, this is a very simple thing to do and I'm kind of mad at myself for not trying it sooner.

RE: Where to for Thanksgiving?

Staying home as usual with limited family, DW, DD, GD and GGD, while rest of the family in NY shovels out from latest snow storm. Sounds too cold for me, but lots to be thankful for.

Where to for Thanksgiving?

Anybody have any fun trips planned? Where are you headed? Are you there already? Post your pics if you're having a good time. Show us what you're thankful for.

RE: Tire chains in Califdrnia

I have heard some flatlanders bought chains before going into area where might be needed, carried for while, than returned to get most of money back (Sounds like a rent thing to me). But all I talked to where running 22.5 or 24.5 wheels, might not be available in your size or area. Might look into it though. Nope. No returns on snow chains anywhere in CA. It's been that way for decades. Sometimes you can get away with an exchange if you bought the wrong ones, but even that is iffy. Is that a law, or just stores can get away with that policy? I confess, I have not put a wheel in the state sense '69. Not much for spending money/paying taxes in a area that would not let me work. It's a store policy. Stores that sell chains have signs all over the place and some even make you sign something.

RE: Camping at 27 degrees.

Point the thing south & don't stop until you no longer see bridge freezing before road warnings or no snow blowers outside of Lowes or Home Depot. Sooo... Belize or Guatamala, somewhere down there? :B I see those "bridge freezes before the rest of the world does" signs just about everywhere in the U.S. except maybe Florida.

RE: Camping at 27 degrees.

OTOH, your declaration that I was saying "eff you" is not true. Thank you for politely telling me that I'm wrong. I'm sorry though that you missed the opportunity to learn about how people interpret your posts. At least it should solve one of the mysteries about why your posts sometimes get deleted.

RE: Camping at 27 degrees.

Not directing this at Scooby, but many on a public forum, lack spelling, grammar , and reading comprehension skills. Not all members are educated at the same level. While all are important, reading comprehension matters most, before responding. Many times the OP, made by someone asking a question, is vague, lacking needed information, making response difficult, without providing further information. Good points, Jerry. Adding to this... There are good ways and bad ways to get one's point across that don't involve bickering like a four year old: "Ya huh!" "Nuh uhh". I think I deleted two posts in this thread (so far), one that just said "False", which is the online equivalent to "eff you" and another that started with "Wrong." for the same reason. Most of you are clever enough people to get your points across better than that. Don't let your quest to be right make you wrong.

RE: Camping at 27 degrees.

We camp down in the 20s all the time. The issue is how deep into the 20s and how long will it stay that way? Dipping down that low overnight and freezing the dog's water bowl is no big deal. If it stays in the 20s all day though, then it's serious. We just keep the living quarters warm enough to be comfortable, which keeps the underbelly warm enough to prevent freezing.

RE: New camper without 12 volt fridge

No I don’t remember. In 2005 our camper was made by Kelty. (A tent, lol) Awesome. I gave my girlfriend (now wife) a tent for Christmas the first year we were dating.

RE: New camper without 12 volt fridge

That’s really sad if LP fired camper fridges are now in short supply. Do you remember the oven shortage back around '04 or '05? One factory in China manufactured an orifice used by RV ovens and the factory went out of business. That was the end of RV ovens for many years. The marketing spin from the industry was "who needs an oven anyway?" and "everyone knows that convection microwaves are better than LP ovens". It took a lot of doing, but I found an oven and put it under the tree for my wife for Christmas that year. She used the heck out of that oven and she uses the oven in our newer rig too. The market has to bob and weave with shortages, but it doesn't make it a logical choice or a preference. It's just dealing with the current market conditions. Hopefully the OP can put a fridge under the tree for his wife (or just himself) next year.

RE: Calling Buck2520

No can do. Once the Legal genie is out of the bottle, you can’t put him back. That topic is off-limits for that member. It was his first post, so I doubt we’ll see him back anyway.. it’s sad all around.

RE: Passport America Caravans

Oh man. I am SO SORRY to nuke your post and close your thread. You came so close to being OK, but any mention of legal action gets your thread closed. There’s no wiggle room in that forum rule. Best of luck to you.
