  1. Old thread, I know....but just now read the last few posts. Hope all is going well with Tuna. Thanks for telling the 'rest of the story'.
  2. Here's something to throw into the mix of things. Yesterday I saw the on-line reservation/what's available map for a park. It showed I could get a month (June 5 - July 5) - I've stayed there before and it's a fine place. But I couldn't remember if they allowed mail/packages to be forwarded to them, so called before I hit the reserve button. The host who answered remembered me from a few years ago, so told her I was about to make a months reservation on-line...she said well, let me check. Evidently the way their system is set-up, you might get to stay for a month, but have to move to different sites during your stay! One camper had to move 6 times! So she called me back and I am able to spend the first 18 days in a pull thru, then move to a back in for the rest of my stay. I can handle that. It's not just RV traveling that is getting more difficult, Wanted to take my truck into an independent garage I used for 15 years when I lived here....they are out 30+ days for appts! Same with a veterinarian for my cat, just a wellness check is 30 days out. Not sure what it's called when it's paved but not a blue road, but that's where I'm going to head and hope for less difficulty.
  3. 14 years ago a stray/feral young cat turned up on my property. I'd always kept a heated water bucket in the barn for whoever needed it as winters were tough on everybody. Put food out but she never came close to me. That spring I'd been to a horse show and upon return the gal who took care of my place said 'oh, your little kittenS are so cute!' Yep, had 4 little ones. Fed them, let them play in cat carriers, took pictures, they were a joy to have around. Was able to trap the Mom, got her fixed. Never did touch her...her eyes told me that wasn't going to happen. A couple months later saw her out in a pasture watching me work in the barn. Never saw her again. I had to believe she just moved on...but at least, she wasn't having litters of kittens any more. The barn cats (also fixed) are still thriving even though I no longer own the property. We do what we can.
  4. Before I went full time I had property, raised a few horses/cattle and had cats. 6 of them, sometimes more, sometimes less (well, not really because they just show up as mentioned above). The cats could stay in the barns or in the house, most all of them loved the wood stove after a long day of hunting. I had moved and was down to one, the youngest of the bunch that had gone on to greener pastures. She was 17, and did well in the RV for a year, then passed. I went a year without, then got the bug for a cat companion. Ended up with a 12 week old kitten who has not known anything but traveling about. Started her in a harness very young and now she's a seasoned walker. We go when she wants, where she wants and come back on her schedule...she's now 3.5 years old. All that to say, lots of people have cats in their full time life. I've seen people let their cats OUT by themselves, I've seen people tether their cat outside, but mostly they are quite happy inside. It takes patience to walk a cat, it's not like a dog at all.....but when it's blowing a gale or snowing or raining or 100 degrees, my cat is very happy to use her litter box and I don't have to take her outside As for the kitten climbing up the outside screen....read The Silent Meow.
  5. You for sure want to be covered, so I'd call Millers and ask/tell - maybe ask for advice. They know the ins and outs and have a good reputation with the RV industry.
  6. I bought one fall 2019 and so glad - for me it's much easier and takes away the 'what if'. I use the split roll of insulation you can get at Home Depot or elsewhere and cut it to cover the faucet and city water inlet. Used it here in Nevada at 17* last winter and in AZ in the teens last Spring. This winter has been warmer and I may not have needed it, but I'll take that chance. For me, better safe than sorry and nothing to fiddle with. I leave it hooked up until we're past the possibility of freeze and then pack it away for next time.
  7. If you want to try a 'free' one, give the Opera browser a try. I've used it for years and have no problem with it and recently have been using their in house free VPN. Works great...just have to laugh when some of the responses to a search come back in Swedish.
  8. Thanks! I waded through the main info, did a bunch of searches but only finding....you can buy it for $58. which I really didn't want to do. THEN I must have changed some wording and came up with the FREE portal that I will use soon. Appreciate you sending me on the correct path: https://www.nfpa.org/Codes-and-Standards/All-Codes-and-Standards/Free-access
  9. Does anyone here know who makes the rules and regulations that need to be followed for propane use/installation in RV's? Thanks.
  10. Thank YOU for posting the info and link. Been a while since I'd looked at the DL info available on the SD website - now I can make a plan of action.
  11. Oh, how true! You will be fine on this adventure, and will be grinning when you experience the exact same thing in the RV world. Enjoy!
  12. Last night I did a search, because I was raised in Northern California, and lived near the Sonoma Mission, in fact visited several over during the 50's, so thought that was the ONLY El Camino Real. Well, it's not and if you search around a little there are websites that shred what we were taught in school. I choose to go with the story of Father Junipero Serra and the Missions. Interesting to find the other 'roads' called El Camino Real.

  14. Soon after I bought my toy hauler I took out one of the couches that folds down into a bed. Put an ad on Craigs List and within a few days had a fellow want it for an extra trailer on his property. It's the kind that bolts into the floor and exactly what he needed. Worth a try. Have no idea what it was worth but he gave me $100. and we were both happy!
