  1. Am I missing something about at least part of 287. My experience has been 287 between Amarillo and Henrietta Tx. I don't recall any issues on that portion.
  2. Serious understatement but highly relevent
  3. If the pythons would just go after the wild hogs causing problems it would be great.. I think they are having the same issue with Boa Constrictors too.
  4. you do know many civil war battlefields are known by 2 names. IE: Bull Run is the northern name for the south's Manasass. Shiloh in TN is southern name for Pittsburg Landing. Many more the same way. That could help you shorten your list but it will still be long. Like was said they are not "war of Northern Aggression" sites but I liked Yorktown, James town and Colonial Williamsburg. A day or so each was good for me especially in summer with heat and humidity. Citing War Of Northern Aggression designates me as being a southerner born and bred.🤨 I forgot to say I stayed 2 nights at Bull Run Campground on the way to DC area to volunteer in what ever year Hurricane Katrina happened as I recall it is a community campground of some type. It was not busy at that time in the 1st week of March. 1 HEADS UP. get your directions down pat and have decent amount of fuel in case you screw up. I was pulling a 30ft TT and messed up and was sweating running out of fuel on a 2 lane as I could not find a place to turn around. I finally came out some where near Dulles airport where I was able to gas up and give it a second try which was successful.
  5. And the same wishes back to you. I didn't see this before today SUN. evening. Thanks for thinking about all of us.
  6. First confirm with escapees that you have your correct address for the mail service. Then make sure you have given the others the correct address and that they have recorded it correctly. I have used the system since March 1997 with few problems. I get maybe 2 or three items from 2 different credit uniions and one Visa bill even though I do most of it on line I just like to get somethings on paper.
  7. So does anyone recall when this era started? I see I will need to get one in Jan when Windows 7 is no longer supported. Am I correct in thinking they only support systems 10 years mostly? Meaning I may not get a full 10 years of Windows 10 support. Of course I am being optomistic that I will outlast it.
  8. I don't remember much about it but I do remember way back in the early 60's I worked at a couple of Dairy Queen type independent restruants and even then we had someone buying our used oil and grease. We had it in locked sumps outside and we even had someone break the padlock and steal it at least a couple of times.
  9. Just did it all by mail in NM and I am a "domicilee" of Polk county tx. New tags were mailed out yesterday from SKP mail forwarding by priority mail and should be here on Monday. I had one glitch that slowed it up a little in that I misunderstood something and ended up being $3.25 short. The tax office called me instead of sending it all back and I mailed them another check for the $3.25. My glitch had to do with the empty weight. I had my truck weighed and it came out to exactly 6000lb. Empty weights are rounded up to the next higher 100lbs. If I had run just another 1/2 gal of gas I would have been under 6000 rounded up to 6000.
  10. This model appears to be overloaded to me. Any type of rv can be overweight and humans seem to be able to do that on all types.

    Mt Rushmore area

    Minor correction to Twotoes cite. It wasn't Buffalo Bill that was shot there it was Wild Bill Hickcock in the NO 10 Saloon while play cards and holding what has been called the dead man's hand, full house of aces over eights
  12. What I find interesting is that at least more than 25 years ago I came to know a lot of folks have rural address that are listed as PR, Private Road. IE: John Doe, Box 10, PR (number or name) , Jonesville. Tx , zip code. I don't know about that any more so it might have changed especially after 9-11
  13. I think this input will be helpful when I can get a chance to explore it. Thanks
  14. I think u are right but i was hoping.
