RE: Reservations at federal parks

The site is operated by Booz, Allen, Hamilton. I suspect that's who takes the hit on credit charge fees. Nope, that's not who takes the hit. Actual Fact: whoever brings the money to the transaction pays the piper. Always. Doesn't matter who appears to take it, the cash ALWAYS actually comes out of the hide of the person forking over money. The fee can easily be hidden in the cost of the item/service, but it is in there. Always.

RE: pocket knife

In the words of liberal redneck, Trae Crowder, "H***, every redneck I know has carried a pocketknife since second grade." So, me, too. Since at least second grade. Still, to this day. And yes, I use it almost every day to open SOMETHING, cut some cord/rope/string, etc. I even get asked by strangers in the lumber yard to "borrow your knife for a second." That is an absolute no-no. NEVER lend your knife to a stranger. If they are too dumb to have come prepared, they are too dumb to return it intact. Last time I did that, it came back with the blade snapped off. Idiot tried to use it as a pry bar.

RE: Need help . No shore power

Are you sure the place you are plugging it is actually powered? By that, I mean have you plugged ANYTHING in there to confirm you even have power? Stuck the probes of a voltmeter in to check voltage? NOT checked the breaker box, again, that tells you nothing other than there SHOULD be power there. But it does not mean there actually is power.

RE: inDesign Publishing Program

Short answer: No. InDesign and the PDF file format are both Adobe products. THE Adobe product for creating and manipulating PDF files is Acrobat. If there is one thing Adobe does well, it is making sure its products do not cannibalize its other products. And, of course, "convert to what" is the essential question. My brother wrote a book years ago, and sent it somewhere to get it published. All he has any longer is an early Publisher version file of the page layout/text. If there is one thing Microsoft does well, it is make sure you MUST update your software. So his only computerized version of his book is no longer readable by ANY software we've been able to find. But if what you have is actually a PDF, and not a Publisher file, any PDF reader should be fine with it. To do anything more with it, you need either Acrobat or one of the many non-Adobe products available. But not InDesign. Good luck.

RE: College Football Is Just Around The Corner, Can't Wait!

Watched several games, including the Rose Bowl, where the Buckeyes sent their buffoons out for the first half, then the Brilliants in the second half. My hat’s off to the Utes on a great game. It turned into the shootout I expected and it’s a shame someone had to lose. Both teams did well, IMHO. Given the talent gap, it’s amazing the game was so close but Utah over achieved, which should make the sting of loss a little less. Also gotta give a lot of credit to Jaxon Smith-Njigba. 15 catches for 347 yards, a 23 yard average is awesome, and bodes well for the future.

RE: How to see grand canyon

Since you are wandering, hit both the North and South rims. They are very different parks, being 2,000 feet different in elevation as well as having different views of the canyon itself. Do be aware that snows happen as early as late September even at the lower elevation of the South rim. Been there when it did. And absolutely make reservations at both as early as possible. They are popular places to visit, and fill up quickly.

RE: Battery wiring question

Depends on wire length and peak current drawn. Google wire gauge and find one of the calculators/tables online.

RE: Merry Christmas Y'all!

This time of year there are at least 25 major holidays celebrated by the world's many religions, not to mention Festivus for the rest of us. Regardless of which one(s) get celebrated in your household, may it/they be the most joyous and hope filled one(s) of all, as well as merely the beginning of a a trend of ever better ones.

RE: Exterior dash cam for rear view?

Not sold as dash cams, but many of the security cameras sold for home use are weatherproof, battery powered, with a card slot for memory chips. These typically record 24/7 as the first sign of movement in an "event" is frequently too late to record the critical details. For example clicky

RE: Insurance claim, possible surge

Agreed likely lightning strike. A power surge of any kind blows things immediately, not months later. Lightning doesn't have to hit the trailer, it can hit the power line a mile or more away. If the 'electric company's grounds at the poles are out/already blown from a previous strike, the lightning surge can destroy things you wouldn't believe.

RE: Propane prices

Wow. Those prices are high. Local place I buy from was $2.29 about a week ago.

RE: Plugged in or out

I do keep it plugged in, although I disconnect the battery (connect it for a day once a month to keep it charged). I do this because the humidity here is high all year around, and I keep a dehumidifier running in it to keep mold down. I also, from time to time, need to run the refrigerator for "special events." And every so often we have guests.

RE: cruise ship crewman buying rv and tow or towed in no.amer.

Your advice is sound. 3-6 year old is good -- avoids most of the initial depreciation as well as the "needs major repairs" of an old unit. C class is also a good choice. I would add that the addition of a small car as a towed (aka "toad") might be useful, but perhaps equally useful instead might be an electric bicycle. North America is a big, big place with a lot of unique things to see and do. May I suggest also a youtube channel called "Gone with the Wynns," by a couple who spent several years roaming North America by RV before switching to a catamaran and sailing the world. Their adventures will give you some good ideas.

RE: Is travelling through the states safe re: Covid?

me and my wife are double vaccinated and we are planning on travelling from Vancouver BC to Yuma Harizona at the beginning of 2022, does anybody know the situation regarding Covid in Harizona and California? Does anybody know if we have to show a negative test result at the border to be able to cross (by land) to the US and also coming back to Canada after a few months. If you have been fully vaccinated AND you wear a mask AND mind the two meter social distance thing, you should be good to go. As for needing tests to cross borders, that situation changes almost on a daily basis. Your best bet is to inquire of the border authorities a few days before attempting to cross. Anything anybody tells you today, no matter how accurate, is likely to be questionable at best THEN.

RE: Aluminum Ion Batteries

After languishing for around a century, battery technology is exploding these days, driven by a combination of automotive, consumer electronics, and solar/wind renewable technologies that suddenly need batteries better than good old dry cell and flooded lead/acid. Lithium ion (and other lithium chemistries) suffer from several problems, among them the relative rarity of lithium on this planet. Among the likely breakthroughs for batteries in the next few years are both solid state and alternate metal technologies. In fact, there are solid state batteries already on the market . . . in the form of a battery the size of a fingernail used for certain very small, low drain electronic applications. Toyota has announced they will start building cars with solid state batteries next year (following long standing tradition in the IT business, we call these cars "vaporware" until we find them in the store and actually for sale).

RE: College Football Is Just Around The Corner, Can't Wait!

Gotta remember we’re talking about 18-21 year old young men, a bunch known for being inconsistent. They can be brilliant one day and buffoons the next. So Michigan sent their buffoons to East Lansing and saved their brilliance for the Buckeyes, good moves except for the East Lansing part. Buckeyes unloaded brilliance on Sparty, and sent their buffoons to Ann Arbor. So, Michiganders, send your brilliance to the playoffs.

RE: Finally Found a Cold Cereal I Like

Used to work with a chemist who had previously worked for Kroger at their food lab. One of the things he said to me that stuck with me was that the name of the game is making it as cheaply as possible. Thus the inclusion of more and more air in the ice cream, the injection of more and more water into everything, and inclusion of lots of sugar. Sugar and salt are the two cheapest solids in the food industry, so the more of them they can put in stuff, the cheaper they can make it.

RE: Not solar again ?

Where does all that electric that I ain't catchin , where do it go ? Same place all that horsepower from your truck engine goes when you turn it off. I.E., it isn't being created, so goes nowhere.
