RE: MLB without spitting, sunflower seeds, etc......?

the real crimes are the DH in the national league and starting extra inning games with a runner on 2nd. Boy, that's for sure ... Maybe just get ahold of a video game, and each pick a player. Stay home and play the game, declare a winner. Seriously, I'm a die-hard MLB fan, and hope they work things out so we can enjoy some games ... DH doesn't bother me quite as much as the EI 2B runner.

RE: Florida Plates; How to Prove We haven't Been There Lately.

I suppose we could all ignore no smoking signs, speed limits, red lights, etc. I hate masks but if it will help I will wear one. Why would you resist something that is for your own good? Guy in the video is nothing more than an instigator trying to start some drama period. I think of it as just another safety factor. One can choose to wear safety googles in a shop, or take a chance on losing an eye. I've been choosing safety googles for many, many years - and occasionally look at the scratches and chips that might otherwise have damaged my vision. So, we do have the freedom of choice - wear googles or not, wear masks or not. Perhaps suffer the consequences of your personal choice, perhaps not. It's not a political decision, it's a safety decision.

RE: 2002 Ford Diesel 7.4 ??

Yup, mistyped :( 7.3 RWD for city/rural towing in a small business - no heavy TT or 5'er ... just local 50-100 miles per trip few times a week. Hauling equipment. 134K miles on it ...

RE: Without getting political....

Same with me - Die-hard baseball fan since the 60's ... and NFL and NBA -- nothing now but MLB. But if MLB begins kneeling, this fan is gone. Politics does not belong on my sports broadcasts.

RE: Devil's canyon UT

At least you got a response where they say they will fix it.m. Perhaps my post wasn't clear to you. Yes, I believe you're correct ... post was very clear to me. No offense SN, but read that post again :) slowly.

RE: Are campgrounds more crowded or is it just me?

After weeks of trying to get a reservation at a state park in the Keys for next May, I finally got into Curry Hammock. Fortunately, we are flexible with our dates. It’s aggravating to see 8 spots open at a state park and at 8 am when you can reserve, all 8 are taken by 8:01 am. Actually they are taken by 8:00:01 AM. There are folks out there running bots or having 15 of their friends on laptops all hitting the button the split second the window opens. Florida is constantly trying to keep it honest but it's a losing battle. Friends that travel with us in the winter months are on their own from now on. Near impossible to get 1 site much less 2.The only way it will ever be made close to fair is to make the deposit and the cancellation fees painful. A $10 or $20 fee stops no one. A fee equal to one night's stay isn't much more effective. Require payment in full and make the cancel fees 25% if cancelled with more than 60 days notice, 50% with between three days to 60 days notice and no refunds on either weekend or holiday reservations and that might make people think twice about reserving multiple sites in different locations on the same days or reserving multiple sets of dates so they can choose which they will use later. And after the first night no-show, then the site is open first-come at least two days, then reservable. I'd prefer first-come, but others are less flexible so a little chance for everyone in these cases.

RE: Without getting political....

New rules considered for NCAA college athletes -- they can sell themselves in commercials or their likeness for $$$ ... Does that make them amateurs or Pros? When will it end??? High school, middle school. KG? Birth?

RE: Without getting political....

Pro Sports are no longer games to watch - they have become an entertainment break between commercials. We only watch baseball - when and if it returns , because commercials usually come only between innings, for which we can mute and plan our own "go get snacks or hit the bathroom time".

RE: Without getting political....

Those reality shows - fishing, hunting, troopers, etc. might be worth if so many were not like soaps, and so predictable and staged. We miss MLB baseball, but not the NFL nor NBA. Might get more into college games if it ever gets back on track.

RE: Harbor Freight has lifetime warranty on hand tools

Wish they sold iphones. Phones and other com devices usually last just about as long as the warranty, or as long as the contract. Pick your poison. If I believed in conspiracies, I'd think each one is programmed to fail a month or so beyond warranty or contract. I could show you a stack of worthless phones over the years as anecdotal evidence.

RE: Picking up Truck Camper

Depending on where you drive, you may get rocks and debri kicking up and denting the tailgate.

RE: Rhode Island

Not in Rhode Island, but if you go north out of Providence into Mass for a day trip, Sturbridge Village is an awesome historic attraction. Really worth the trip if you're that close.

RE: Which cell phone provider do you use in the US?

T-mobile ? Spotty ? We took a CC trip from Florida to the Rockies last year and never had a problem. We had phone AND hotspot nearly the entire trip unless we went way off civilized areas, like in the back-country. We have T-Mobile.

RE: I need to find 6V batteries

I'd try a Golf Cart dealer - if they don't carry 'em, might know where to get 'em.

RE: Anybody Know what this is?

Spigot is probably the low-point line drain when you want to empty your FW tank. I have two spigots on my Lance, one hot, one cold, low point drains. Don't know about that the hose connection -- could be an outlet for external wash-down hose? Try running your pump and see if water squirts out at ^^^ pressure. IF so, then it's for external wash off mud or whatever :)

RE: Still no Stimulus Payment

We received the VISA debit card. I guess they ran out of cash a long time ago. How much cash can I convert this card into? I never have used a debit card. Use the debit card just like a VISA for groceries, fuel, personal expenses ... then collect what you spend from your own cash, save it until you have the $1200 or $XXXX, then spend it on whatever you want ... or donate it, or whatever. If you cash it in, the bank usually charges a fee to cash it in... often 2.5 percent or more.

RE: The latest on Oregon State Parks

Yep another example of common sense. The virus can only get you between the door and the table, once seated you are perfectly safe so remove your mask and have a great time. ;) That's funny ... imagine eating with the mask on ... :) :) New invention: a plastic mini-surgeon's mask on rotator buttons, flip it up, take a bite, flip it down. HAHAHaHa And, yes, common sense is absent in lots of situations. One size never fits all.

RE: New Cell Phone Choice

Thanks for all the advice - I ended up with a Samsung A10e ... small, does everything I need - Phone, Camera, Internet, Hotspot, good battery life, and $250. We're on the Senior plan with T-Mobile, and get everything for the monthly fee, no add-ons. Now, we just have to get one the road ... Stay Safe ya'all !!! :)
