    • Our daughter is an OTR driver. When she visited me at Dome Rock near Q she dropped the trailer at Pilot and "camped" in her truck. I guess that makes her a full-timer? Pretty visible camper. Linda
    • As always to each their own, but I chose to not try and catch a falling knife (unless it's a good short opportunity )  typically waiting for a fish hook/double bottom/doji or other confirmation.     I would agree to some degree with that Business Insider (wish it quoted percentage of portfolio risk rather than dollar amounts for realism!), article when applied to solid "index" type investments, but thank heavens I didn't apply that years ago to Nortel (many, many Canadian pension funds that believed it was solid took a huge bath!), also what about Valiant Pharmaceuticals not that many years back, (VRX at the time), that took a huge tumble from in the upper $300's to barely double digits.   It's been great since it truly bottomed to buy in and out on the dips but it's still only trading in $30's last time I personally checked under a new ticker BHC?    That's just two of many that i'm sure glad we didn't apply that business insider principal too.   I have many friends still in SPB from when it was the boasting flavour of income trust funds, their DCA is still crazily high because they "bought and hoped", and believed it would turn around     GLBR another and so it goes on and on.    Moving your Stop Losses with reasonable wiggle rooms (not too tight!!!), and not holding on to losers will always be the best course of action in our books.  Take the 2008 crash, if folks had a reasonable SL based on prior support/resistance/ATRs etc, then many could have got out to cash from S&P index, and waited for the return of, whatever buy signals they prefer to have bought back in = true overall if you'd held throughout you'd still be up today (ask BarbOK ), but if you'd come out to cash and got back in on the upturn you'd be far more ahead of the game.   No one I've ever met went poor taking profits      For sure indexes, dividend aristocrats and sometimes Dogs of the Dow, have been our mainstay for the portfolio for spreading risk and are for the most part "buy and hold" with a wider SL applied, but I sure do enjoy those speculative one off stocks here and there .   They add a bit of fun and variety to the watching paint dry ones.       As I said before, for everyone that believes something's a buy there's someone on the other end that believes it's a sell.    Buy and hope is not a strategy but sadly most abide by that, being afraid to sell their losers in a timely manner or recognizing when the gravy train is about to run dry, even if only to be short lived, when they can jump back on the bus later. PS:  A $75K loss within a multi million dollar portfolio is minor compared to someone else with a $500 loss on a $10,000 portfolio!  
    • We use ours at our kids house. About 75 ft to the septic tank. I let the gray run all the time and pump the black when called for.
    • Kirk,   No, we haven't found our Airstream yet but, have been researching for about 2 years now; started down the usual path of diesel pusher to 5er to travel trailer.  My wife and I looked at more RVs over the last 2 years than I care to think about and have found the Airstream brand to have what we want.   We are planning to full-time with our two young sons when we retire from the Navy (me in 2019 and my wife in 2020); we will not have a home base per se but will keep our TX affiliation.   No, we are both down the road at the hospital in Bremerton. Thank you for your "silent" service and the advise here.   v/r   Tod
    • Before I put new vent on I ran water into sink. It can out the pipe the vent screws into. Could that pipe be clogged?
