  2. If I read this correctly, it seems that an "electronic receipt" can only be redeemed for an "valid permit and decal" at the Yuma Field Office. (I put the applicable sentence in bold.) If this is accurate, what's the advantage to using "Your Pass Now" for those needing a pass for a BLM area in Quartzsite or Havasu (or other)? What am I missing? "Once purchased, you must print your permit receipt and exchange it at one of the following locations during normal business hours, excluding holidays, to receive a valid permit and decal(s): La Posa LTVA - Tyson Wash Contact Station, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., daily, Sept 15 – Apr 15 Imperial LTVA Contact Station, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., daily Yuma Field Office, Mon-Fri, 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. If you arrive after business hours, please park and establish your campsite at the LTVA. The following day you will need to proceed to one of the locations listed above to exchange your permit receipt and receive your official permit and decal(s). The Yuma Field Office, located at 7341 E. 30th Street in Yuma, Arizona, is the only location that will accept electronic receipts.

  4. I believe that 2013 was the last model year of the Honda Fit with a non-CVT automatic.
  5. Accessing the article requires a subscription to the Yuma Sun.
  6. "With this combination I would only have one motor and transmission to maintain and worry about." --- Yes, but do factor in the reality that the 5th wheel will require its own share of maintenance and repair expenses. A 5th wheel or TT may not have a 'motor', but it has plenty of other components that need regular servicing and/or repair, and, often, replacement, e.g., tires.

  8. "Murder, She Wrote" was filmed in Mendocino, California! 😉
  9. Toll takers were eliminated on the Golden Gate bridge a few years ago; it's either FastTrak or receiving the toll fee in the mail (license plate photo). The wide lanes are ample for clear passage of large vehicles if one is paying attention and "centers" in the lane; this mishap was undoubtedly due to "pilot error".
  10. OP, you might want to check out these resources as starters; there are many other like sources of "van living" information, some linked from the "Cheap RV Living" site. http://www.cheaprvliving.com/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFr5LUX8Fts
  11. This? http://grillguard.com/ I've had one for years; well-designed, constructed of high quality materials, and it folds flat to store.
  12. I use white vinegar and hot water for many cleaning jobs, but if the smell of vinegar is an issue, try "20 Mule Team Borax"; it has a very faint odor (undetectable to some people) and is inexpensive, versatile, and effective. Follow the instructions on the box.
  13. Nina (and Paul) of the "Wheeling It" blog posted a very informative two-part article on this topic in the past couple of weeks: http://wheelingit.us/2017/02/09/the-costs-of-fulltime-rving-part-i-budgeting-planning-your-spend/ http://wheelingit.us/2017/02/16/the-costs-of-fulltime-rving-part-ii-specifics-links/
  14. Keep in mind that cassette toilets (and porta-potties) usually have a waste tank capacity of 4.5-6 gallons; this is very little, particularly if one doesn't have frequent and convenient access to a dump station or toilet. Also, a full waste tank can weigh anywhere from about 35 to close to 50 pounds; that can be a load to heft up to an outhouse hole or a toilet rim to dump (and flushing the toilet several times), and/or manage without spilling the "contents" all over when at a dump station. For some people, a cassette or porta-potti works; I'm not one of them.
