  1. Thanks, Kirk - I'm looking at it right now. WalMart is cheaper but 'out of stock' and I'm trying elsewhere before resorting to Amazon.
  2. Oh, I think you all have -- weight is what we were doing - a pain. Hot water is obviously one of the cheapest and maybe one of the more accurate. Looking at the ultrasound made in Germany, as long as we go with the concept it is calibrated for a 20 pounder and go from them; the little stick on gauges are easy and cheap enough as a starter..... so will probably pick a couple of these options to use. Thanks, Everyone for guiding me on my options!!!!
  3. Gotta admit I really like this - just plain old logic applied - with hot water!
  4. Ray,IN - see what you mean about confusion of application; sure looks like they are using the ultrasound on refillable tanks in the video and the array shown at the end in succession. Hmmm. Quite a span in the pricing when doing this product search, also. Chad H probably using his on a refillable tank, maybe a glitch in the German-to-English translation?! Thanks again to all who have chimed in here to give me products to research.
  5. Hi, about two years ago I was looking for husband-type Christmas gift suggestions and I believe someone (Dartmouth?) suggested a propane gauge. I found the thread, can't find the suggestion. Bought a lot of great gifts from y'all's recommendations - the AE diagnostics for the truck came in useful repeatedly, Progressive power surge protector, Hitchmate step works wonderfully, water regulator, etc. Can anyone suggest/comment on the propane gauge? Looked on line and I'm finding not much beyond a $12 Camco or Chinese gauge - and I'm guessing that's not it, but don't really know. Any help appreciated. TIA
  6. Husband just reapplied W&F to our vinyl siding on house after 3 years, and I must add we have had continuous wet weather for over a year as well as warmer-than-'average' temps that aided the growth of green mold. We were impressed it lasted 3 years on the house before needing to be reapplied. Husband washed house this time before applying W&F, but had done no prep the first time W&F was applied.
  7. Dutch, Hi - I did start reading about 'deer farms' and almost sorry I did. Horrible photos of humongous deer shot by proud hunters, and the antlers looked like alien mushrooms; supposedly a 'secret' by article was suggesting hormonal manipulation and excessive/low quality foods, etc...... and then the hunters get to pay to shoot these engineered 'trophies'. And here I was foolishly picturing natural/organic grazing for pasture-fed deer and healthy venison.... I trust they're out there, too.
  8. Hi "Somewhere" - never heard of anyone raising deer--- Venison farm? I orig. come from NJ ; deer were considered a huge problem in the Tri-State area as the deer and vehicles crashed, and deer and homeowners clashed. Sharpshooters were hired by individual communities to resolve problems. I did view stomping, snorting deer as they munched on homeowners' landscaping and refused to budge as the people yelled, waved arms, threw stones, etc.
  9. The ranger accused him of yelling at the female host.... only one there to make the call of complaint! (This was a somewhat remote loop) Then the questioning started about a gun - ! This guy had been camping there for days, walking around the campground with his dog on a leash, all the rangers saw it, there was no problem, he checked in with his dog which they saw - again, no problem, no mention of any new restrictions, nada. The rangers had even stopped in the past few days just to chat with him while he had his dog - again, no problem - until the yelling started. Will be interesting how the Supt. of Parks responds. Yes, there are always two sides to a story, different perspectives, etc.
  10. A bit more to the story: Appears the ticketing ranger is a friend of the camp host. The host called the ranger on my friend walking his dog past her trailer and her barking, lunging German Shepherds. They got into words when she kept screaming: You can't walk here, you wan't walk here, and my friend responded: Why is it my problem you can't control your dogs? The ranger came and kept querying about 'having any guns/weapons', then came the $100 ticket for the dog on the leash. Other campers complained about the camp host and her dogs - same issues, saying their kids could not walk by her campsite and be in her loop. My friend has written a letter to the Park's Superintendent based mostly on poor communication, lack of signs, etc. - so, to be continued, perhaps.
  11. Al F: I would be very highly surprised if there were no warning signs about the dogs on the bulletin boards in the campgrounds. ----- I agree they must have had it posted. But we all think we know what the rules are - 6 ft leash, not in buildings, blah blah blah - and apparently just never concerned himself with standing there reading. Normally he is a boondocker, so not in the habit of looking for the posted rules, I imagine. Lesson learned, and $100 contribution to the National Park Service.
  12. Mamas being protective of their kids! I've heard of the male deer kicking and the does stomping their feet as a warning but not charging. Then again, these were East Coast deer - maybe more polite, ha ha. Guess these partic. deer were too campground familiar to drop their young so close and then get ornery over activity.
  13. I'm answering my own question now, as I just found this.... and apparently very park specific: In Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, pets on leash may be walked on roads, in North Rim Campground, to the overlooks, and are allowed on the Cedar Point Nature Trail, and North Rim Chasm View Nature Trail. Pets are not allowed on the southern portion of the Rim Rock Trail from June 1 to August 10, but are allowed north of Tomichi Point. Pets are not allowed on any other hiking trails, inner canyon routes or in the wilderness area. Pets are also not allowed on ranger-led geology walks or evening programs in the campground amphitheater. Owners are responsible for their pet's behavior and may receive fines if their animal creates problems with wildlife and/or other visitors. South Rim Campground and Rim Rock Trail Dog Restrictions From June 1 to August 10, 2018, dogs will be allowed in campsites in South Rim Campground, but may not be taken on walks (even on leash) or be carried around the campground or on the southern portion of the Rim Rock Trail due to potentially aggressive deer protecting their fawns. Over the past few years, female deer have acted aggressively and even attacked park visitors walking dogs. The deer perceive the dog as a threat to their fawns. This has resulted in several deer being euthanized and a visitor almost getting mauled to death.
  14. Just got a text from friend visiting Black Canyon National Park with his dog Monte ..... he got a ticket for walking his dog on a leash on the paved road in the campground $100; was told new rule went into effect June 1 stating dogs are allowed on leash only at campsite, no roads, not even in the campground. Ranger sounds rambunctious with the ticketing. If the dog was off the leash, ticket yes. A new rule, one week old, give campers a break with a stern warning for not knowing... do you think? Did you all know about this?!!!!! I'm Googling the topic, and nothing popping up about this so far.
