    • The Texas Medical Association has just published a chart that rates various activities by the degree of risk to be exposed to the covid-19 as you participate. We found it worth saving and so I thought that I would make it available to anyone here who wishes to download a copy.        Texas Medical Association
    • Thank you Kirk W for the welcome and a very good answer to my SD vs WY question... We love Wyoming so much and it is so close to Denver where my daughter lives. but SD for a domicile it is!  Thank you so much.. helped tremendously.
    • Welcome to the Escapee forums and to the RV lifestyle! We are always happy to help so join in or start new threads at any time. First I will answer the question above. As a Wyoming resident for 18 years, I am very familiar with it and there is much to be said for residing there but the key reason that very few if any fulltime RV people choose to domicile there is the fact that WY does not allow you to use a mail forwarding service as your legal address to register a vehicle, to register to vote, to get a driving license, or any other legal purpose, while SD does.  There are actually 3 states that have very high ratings with the full-time RV community and they are Texas, Florida, and South Dakota because they share several things. None of them require you to be physically present in the state for a period of time to claim residency there, all 3 will accept the use of a mail service for all legal purposes, none have any state income tax, and all have reasonable cost to register vehicles. There are many things which vary between the there and there are some of those things which favor other states, but those three are the leaders for the listed reasons. They are not the only 3 that will allow the use of a mail service but they are the only 3 states with all of those factors.  There is far more involved to choosing a state for domicile. If not family with the legal ramifications of you choice and what makes that choice supportable, I suggest that you read this article which was written by the Escapees RV Club attorney.                    The Issue of Domicile
    • Those wheel dollies are nice until it gets stuck on a rock. The trick is not jacking it up too high. Get the wheel in place and lean it over on the studs. Get a couple nuts started and if you have to jack it up an inch or so to get the rest no big deal. I have the beginnings of real bad back. I have to sit on a stool when I do truck tires. I cant even hold an impact bending over. Like maybe 3 or 4 lug nuts and I'm done.  If I do have to lift the tire I get 2 bars on the bottom and I use my head to push on the top. Slides right on. But I am 47 now and Ive been doing truck tires since before I was in Jr high. My dad would buy trucks at auction for resale in Mexico. They would bring them to the "shop" A drafty wood shed with a dirt floor.  My brothers and I would take the good tires off and save them for his trucks then throw scabs on and send them on their way south.
