    • It makes a fun story, but it isn't at all true. Richard Cabela, the founder (Jim joined 2 years later) passed away back in 2014 Jim who is still living tried to protect the Sidney employees to keep the HQ there but failed to do so. I don't know anything about the children of the Cabela's except that Dick had 9 of them and 3 of them are listed as residing in Sidney. They had about 2000 employees at the HQ and were by far the largest employer in the Sidney area. I think they had only 200 or 300 employees back when I was calling on them but were the second largest employer to UPRR at that time. As near as I am able to learn, there are still about 500 employees at the Sidney location and most of the buildings are now for sale. Our son does not have a good opinion of many of the changes since Bass Pro took over. 
    • Please! Follow up... Has anyone used Escapes Roadside Assistance? (Especially in Alaska where I live?) What was your experience? My CN is due to renew but every year the price goes up! I'd like to support Escapees too, but when we need help we really need it! All you who wrote about this last year... What happened?
    • Wife and I are both on CPAPs.  We carry a small honda inverter/generator to run at night, works great.  Could probably run during the day for his pod-cast if needed.  Even if you get a pop-up, having a small generator opens up a lot of areas if you don't want to be in a crowded campground.  We camp on the side of a lake, very nice area, we are always alone and catching a lot of fish.  Just an idea.  Another idea, helps with only taking one vehicle.  You can only put so much in a folded up pop-up and the back of your car.  We use to use a roof-top Cargo carrier.  You can pack a ton in those things. As for buying a pop-up, there are quite a few pop up (hehehe) on craig's list.  Dealers are there to make money and will generally not give you the best price out the door on a used one.  New.... pay the piper, he's gonna play hard right into your wallet.  There's a reason they are nicknamed *stealership*.
    • I'll second Blackstone.  When we bought our truck, sent an oil sample and their analysis included the following statement in addition to the counts and amounts: "It may take a couple of reports to see how yours is going to stack up in comparison; aluminum and potassium (from the EGR), copper (from brass/bronze) and silicon (from sealers) are all signs of wear-in, so we're thinking work was done recently." Sure enough, the previous owner had just changed the EGR.  They nailed it! I've also called them with questions and they connected me with the tech that pulled the analysis.  I'm used to talking with techs and there's no doubt in my mind they know what their talking about.  We won't be going anywhere else.
