  2. We will be leaving Paducah, Texas around the 7 of June and arriving at Ambassador on the 10 of June. We will take US-83 to North Platte, NB. and I-80 to Little America, WY. US-30 to Pocatello, ID. then I-84 to Caldwell, ID. We do not plan stops. We stop for the night when and where we are. There will be no campgrounds in route. Glad to have any and all to caravan. I got a little truck and am slow.
  3. We have been in our rv since this whole thing started. We were in a state park in March in Illinois with 2 hosts. The “great” ruler in Illinois shut all the state parks, hiking trails, lakes for fishing. We had to leave and find a private park where we were crammed in on top of each other. We did the mask and stay away from people thing like “they” said. We left Illinois and went to Kansas in June and it was a different world there no masks and everything was open and not near the infection rate as Illinois. Then the mask signs started showing up in July we did wear them in stores but not in c

  5. I love to celebrate winter holidays with my family and friends, and I always want to celebrate these holidays in a special way. This year we decided to celebrate Christmas with the family in a more special way, and so we made the holiday with a superhero theme. So I ordered some costumes from the site https://www.kidssuperherocapes.com/personalized-superhero-cape / for children and adults. We had several families, and it was very interesting and fun. I enjoyed it very much and I recommend others to try this theme on different days of the birth of a child or other family celebrations.
  6. I have to agree with you on the way some people wear masks. I do have a supply of N95 masks. They are available but also expensive. Currently costing $4 or $5 each where at one time they were 3 for $1. However, they do fit tightly with little to no gap anywhere on my face. Some call them uncomfortable but you do get used to the tight fit. It always bugs me when I see people wearing masks with their nose hanging out and some who look like their mask is only a chin strap.
  7. Thanks for posting RV and Texas Gov may soon join NY and California Govs in being crispy toast and sent packing. ROTFLMAO!!!
  8. Jerry Jones’ natural gas company ‘hits jackpot’ as Texas freeze drives up prices Comstock Resources Inc. has been able to sell gas from its Haynesville Shale wells in East Texas and northern Louisiana at premium prices since Thursday. The Frisco-based natural gas producer owned by Dallas billionaire Jerry Jones is cashing in on a surge in prices for the fuel as a brutal freeze grips the central U.S., leaving millions without power. Comstock Resources Inc. has been able to sell gas from its Haynesville Shale wells in East Texas and northern Louisiana at premium prices since Thursda
  9. We are TFL and so far have had to show both my military ID and my Medicare cards. We got our flu shots last year at the local COSTCO pharmacy and same ID requirements there. In the past I've always had to show my military ID for care everywhere. It's the second payer now after Medicare so the providers now want to copy both IDs.
  10. Just to muddy the waters. https://www.dailywire.com/news/nyt-study-finds-that-masks-do-not-protect-wearers
  11. Gotta ask. If absolutely no one had worn masks, do you think there would have been any difference?
  12. A full-timer policy offers different coverage than a part-timer one. I would call Miller to be sure I had what I needed. I'd rather pay more now than find out later I didn't have what I needed. Also, read your policy when it comes. Progressive once sold a policy that was immediately void since we didn't meet its requirements even though we told them our situation up front. Linda
  13. Experts eh? I did take a college Logic class long ago and one of the logical fallacies is 'appeal to authority' Science rejects appeals to expert opinion. Experts insisted that the vitalism theory was correct despeite Pastuer's experimental proof otherwise. I could list many expert opinions that were hogwash even tho most other experts accepted them. Show experimental proof not expert opinions.
  14. Nope. Just reduce transmissions to a more tolerable level. Better than not wearing a mask at all. Just like sneezing into your sleeve is better than sneezing into the air in front of you. Dave and I sneeze into the air at home since we figure we are totally exposed to one another's germs anyway but we don't do that in public. We don't wear masks at home, either, but do when we go out in public or if a service person comes to our door. Linda
  15. From the Nature article There just does not appear to be any well controlled tests period. What they have is based mainly on N95 masks which are unavailable. The common cloth masks, even if they work better than 11%, are very poorly fitted. An effective mask needs to fit so that it is in firm contact with skon all around their perimeter. I have been looking at the way people wear these things and they are in most cases anything but close fitting. Try it yourself, next week look closely at the way people are wearing these things. My observations are that there is a
  16. AGESILAUS: Here's a good article to put you to sleep. When you finish there are more recommendations of articles at the very end of this first article: https://www.pnas.org/content/118/4/e2014564118 ... and more https://trinity.duke.edu/research-offers-visible-proof-masks-work https://www.ama-assn.org/delivering-care/public-health/clear-your-patients-confusion-about-which-masks-work-best https://med.stanford.edu/news/all-news/2020/06/stanford-scientists-contribute-to-who-mask-guidelines.html AGESILAUS: Why are you digging your heels into this? There are many, many

    Wheel balancing

    Each tire will have a small raised ring near the bead surface. This is for the installer to guide him when mounting the tire on the rim. If that small raised bead is not concentric with the edge of the rim the tire should be deflated, beads seal broken and the tire re-centered on the rim. Then the tire must be re-balanced.
  18. OTOH if you wish to keep this simple purchase a wireless taillight system.
  19. Yikes! Where are you getting these numbers from, Barb? This mask debate has gone on for far too long. Part of the debate is political, part is science, and part is bad science. A brief look at scientific research (not newspaper articles, TV, radio, blogs, etc) shows a non-so-clear picture. For example, Nature (10/6/20) gives a good summary of the evidence and lack thereof on mask wearing. However, while there is actual research (Journal of General Internal Medicine (7/31/20) ) that indicates mask wearing actually works. On the other hand, there has also been discredited research (see
  20. That is not evidence of any such thing. At best it is a hypothesis that needs to be tested by a controlled experiment. And it seems in this case the experiment could be easily conducted, slap masks on infected volunteers have them cough and sneeze if possible and measure viral particles at at several distances 1 , 2 and 3 meters for example. Why hasn't this been done. My unproved supposition is that either it has been with the results suppressed, or the experiment itself has been suppressed since it will disprove the public mask claims.
  21. Tell me about it. Last time, he drives 12+ hours north of us, into the Alaska wilderness, just to find an area with no cell service before breaking down.
  22. And your neighbors just magically got it from where? It is transmitted from person to person. When outdoors, it is diluted and you may not get any viral particles or may get a few, but not enough to overwhelm immune system and become ill. The more viral particles you have, the greater the chance of getting very, very ill. That's why so many medical personnel died at the beginning of the outbreak because we didn't understand about viral loads. So outside, air currents dilute any particles coming from them and depending upon where one is sitting, chance of getting sick go way down. I
  23. I had a reservation there for September 2021 and it was cancelled so I had to move to West Yellowstone. They said they would give people like me preference for 2022, but not sure I want to go back so soon.
  24. We don't have to wear a mask to and from a restaurant, only walking through there door to your table, you can take it off and keep it off at the table, you don't have to put it on until your food comes. I think masks are doing nothing also, I wear one in a business that requires one but don't want to. Three of our neighbors have had covid and we hang around the firepit all the time with them and the other neighbors and only those three have had covid, and they had it four months ago.
  25. Roxanne at Miller is super. She knows all the in's and out's of Progressive's policies.
  26. As Internet coverage continues to improve, we're constantly re-evaluating our TV options regarding streaming. The coverage isn't quite there yet, but it's getting closer...
