    Progressive insurance cancellation

    I use Progressive in TN. The only change I have had in the last couple of years is that it used to be one policy for the truck/trailer combined, but last year they changed to separate policies for each. I just renewed this month, so I guess they are going to keep me for a while.

    Majority RV & Retirement

    The climate in NE Tennessee I feel is a bit better than central or western Tennessee. I’m at 2300 ft which seems to moderate things a little. Take a look at a national weather map showing temperature isotherm lines. There always seems to be a “tongue” of cooler air coming down around the Tennessee- North Carolina line. As to the price of land, I haven’t really followed it. Real estate prices are quite reasonable though. My house for example is 6000sqft (3800 finished living plus 2200 sqft of a large open basement) on 5.5 acres, is on the market for $595,000. Tha same setup in many other parts of the country would be somewhere north a million.

    Majority RV & Retirement

    Don’t rule out Tennessee. No income tax. RV friendly. My Volvo registration is $25 a year, and for the trailer, I got a permanent tag for $125. (or you could pay $25 a year). Property taxes are low. My house appraised at $589,000 and the annual tax bill is $3,300. I,m in the Smokies in NE Tennessee. 2300 ft elevation. Here, you get all four seasons. The winters are not too harsh. We get a few snows a year but it doesn’t stay around long. Temperature is in the 40’s and 50’s this week. Summer doesn’t get too hot. Six months a year you are in the spring or fall. Down side is sales tax is 9.5% Hope this helps. Steve

    OT: Computers

    I’ve been using a Macbook Pro for many years and would never go back to a Windows machine again. Most if not all your data (docs, spreadsheets, etc) will transfer, but your programs / apps will not.

    12vdc controlled valve

    Are you selling it? Giving it away? Or just telling of it’s existence? I have some potential uses for it if you are looking to part with it. Steve
