    Purchasing Fuel

    When we are traveling, I avoid the big 3 fuel stations like the plague. A few cents difference wouldn't bother me, but the $0.25 to $0.40 cent difference just screams "pay off the fines" money to me. So we stick to smaller dealers, DW hotfoots it into the fuel desk, gives them a deposit on whatever card we're using, I fill'er up, DW goes & closes out the fuel ticket, and off we go like a herd 'o turtles. With a built in discount.

    Air leak help

    Tried the garden hose trick a couple of time. Wife looks in my ear, hose down, and claims all she can see is the gravel on the ground, and then falls over laughing. What am I doing wrong?

    Tinker Week?

    Don't have anything specific in mind to work on, but if everything else fails, we'll just bust something on the way up.
  5. So if I'm understanding this correctly 5"er, you have to pull yourself over and give yourself a ticket for speeding violations, overweights, etc How much time is left???

    Need Craft Help

    Moose Drool is an amber beer very much to my liking. Was trying not to say "willing to buy" to avoid any interstate issues with the folks from the ATF bureau. And so now I'll just shut up .

    Need Craft Help

    If any adults live or are traveling thru the area West of the Mississippi River, I'd like to invest in some adult style specialty brew that is apparently made out of unobtanium East of the Big Muddy. Please contact me at Five 0 two - eight 3 Six - Zero 958 if you think you could help out. Thanks, Paul & Paula

    Hey Ron and Julie, Part of the deal is that we all take turns watching ol' Denver. He wanders off sometimes. Welcome to the Dark Side, and if you really want to wear that silly a$$ hat, by all means, go ahead. Paul & Paula on Site 333

    FYI Not sure what your truck school or state requires, but one little quirk cost me $600 bucks. I (foolishly) assumed that like the rest of the testing, that it would be on the basis of the Test Administrator asking questions and I would answer appropriately. When we got out to the truck, he told me to get in and do the in-cab checks and the air brake test. OK, got that. We got out and he says, "OK, show me the front left inspection for this truck" Right away, when he didn't offer any questions for me to answer and I'm just standing there scratching my rump and winding my watch, I knew I was in the death spiral. Seems that the "correct" method was to get out of the truck, open the hood, and explain (in order) what I was looking at and why it was important, using near verbatim words from the manual. Any deviation from that was points off. I didn't know that until he failed me and explained it to me. And then I got to pay another $600 for the truck & driver for a return test. Be sure you understand how to take the practical test. And good luck

  13. Walmart used to be pretty decent about staying overnight. Naturally, some genius decided to cut corners, be rude. take up way too much space, etc, etc. and lo and behold, the local campgrounds got the local laws updated to outlaw "Overnight Walmart Camping", or any parking lot or on street camping for that matter. Several years ago I made a trip to Kansas City with expectation of staying in a Walmart parking lot overnight. When I arrived at the Walmart, some folks in a class C motorhome had taken over a corner, complete with BBQ Grill, coolers, lawn chairs, and a relocated trash can. I decided to, as the saying goes, Drive On.

    You need to slow down...us ol' farts are having trouble keeping up with progress. Maybe some pictures would help - whoops just rude teasing. That's a lot of work and so far, it looks great. Count us in the "singled mid" mob. We can get in most places while towing a 44' 5'er.
  15. Hey Phil; Are ya'll done blowin' & burnin' stuff up yet? Were those fires in Deer Park or in Channelview? What Refinery/Plant? News said there was 1 fatality in the 2nd fire. Hope that was all and that no one else got hurt. Sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread.
