  1. People like you keep the virus from spreading. (That's a good thing!)
  2. I too had several N95 masks in my workshop. They used to have cheap rubber bands that would break in short order. So I always had a few extras on hand. They were cheap. Cost: Long before the last full solar eclipse i bought a dozen pair of plastic solar viewers glasses for about $10 bucks (rated for sun viewing). A year later just before the eclipse they were selling for $15. dollars each and had a "special" rating. Amazon doesn't even carry the N95 now.
  3. I was in Montana this past week. Overheard a camper say that "it was safe here" - meaning that Covid was not present. Yet, the campsite had several Arizona and Texas license plated RV's - and laundry, restroom, etc. Playing the odds? You bet your life.
  4. Resources are indeed limited in some places. How does that affect one's thinking? People that lived through the depression era had a mindset very different from today's disposable attitude.
  5. Thanks for that! Found them on Amazon and will have them tomorrow.
  6. I think you could go more than a week based on your description. We have a truck camper (about 45 gallons fresh) and are good for an easy five days with both of us taking a shower every day. Whenever available, we will use campground toilets and sometimes their showers if available and really clean.
  7. Occasionally, I actually learn stuff. Need a tarp? Check this out: https://www.billboardvinyls.com/ (Used heavy duty vinyl tarps cheap) ad on FB. (I'll be purchasing one) FB tracks my browsing and has shown me some unusual stuff - stuff that I don't even know what it is!
  8. Some people are born to sit around the hearth. Others are born to desire the campfire. Which are you? Your question should answer itself.
  9. The most important scientific way to use Facebook is to join groups - but not follow them. Groups specific to YOUR interests. Interests such as cancer treatments, finding a handyman at your out-of-state property, learning about your new camera, geo-caching, etc. etc. Join the group, but un-follow the group. That allows one to have choice - and ignore the surface feed - go straight to the group(s) of your choosing. Search a group: this is a Facebook function worth learning. Your question may have already been asked in the group - use search to find out.
  10. If you like the Aeropress but miss your Keurig, then try this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01GQE9MI4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 And if American coffee is too bitter and you like the European or SE Asian coffee with crema then try this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07YBTVVD5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 The second one requires electric power, the first only hot water. As for the Nespresso, they sometimes are on sale for much less. Amazon is pretty expensive at times.
  11. FB offers some useful tools - for those who want them. It also offers some disturbing insight into the public at large - for those who can see. Mostly, FB is a pile of garbage for general media purposes.
  12. 10 best restaurants Top 10 states to retire to 5 Stock to own in 2020 Worst 10 states for taxes 10 reasons to move to Arizona 10 reasons to move to Texas 5 Healthy states to live in This is the nature or article writing today. It started about five or ten years ago when writing for the internet could make some serious money. Now, the serious money has probably diminished and feature stories are rife with top, worst, best, etc. etc. stories. RV life style is just another "attract eyeballs" story.
  13. My feeling is that the Wile E Coyote stock market has run off a cliff and is now temporarily suspended in mid air. The Fed can print money to inflate prices, (and to keep the stock market up) or so it seems. The .06% interest rate would indicate "deflation". If you remember the days of 10+% CD rates - that was inflation. Now, I'm not so sure. . . As for the RMD - I'm in a somewhat unique situation - and will not take the RMD this year on the chance that the market will ratchet up a little more. (Unique: an IRA inside a variable annuity that is tied to the stock market value with an annual "locked in" upside and no downside)
  14. The ad is a starting point for negotiation. If interested a "savvy" investor could require a different type of collateral. After all, the poster claims to be in real estate. I' might take a first on something with equity. The ad is fine. I wouldn't jump to conclusions.
