  1. i lot of what i have to sell is not really crags list stuff. books, trains, other hobby stuff, etc. but a couple of the big things would need to be picked up at my driveway. but no way would i want them coming to my door, but the sheriffs office does have a dedicated spot for such.
  2. i have been here a good 7-8 years. and still not a rookie but i gots me some badges.
  3. does it really matter why. all i know is i do not have enough money to make things work. heck i would shut down this web access. but on a contract. so can not shut down with out a $$$ penalty. i need to start flea-baying my life away. after there "fees" i might make a couple bucks.
  4. good luck on that one, i have a couple debts (cards and the phone company) that get me my billing only days before it is due, and my banks online payments system can not pay it in time, the system is rigged to cost me more cash, and boost there profits.
  5. i live not all that far north of you, but far enough that "this" fire will not reach me. amazing how it stopped right on the county line? sad this year might be a very bad one for fires, as the heat started early, the lake levels are low, and thanks to our gov, letting thousands out of prison early, there went thousands of valued fire fighters. maybe some will volunteer as free persons? everybody living in the hills must cut back everything (aka: leave bare dirt only) that might burn 100 feet from there homes and out buildings. i now live in a town so can only cut so much back. and my trees are dieing. (old oak trees), when the heat stops i have to start cutting down a couple, and cutting up others that have already succumbed.
  6. yes lumber. yes fuel. yes food. i need to work on my trains, and at the cost of a sheet of plywood. ($60.- $85.00 usd) my rr might just go bankrupt. cost $100.usd to fill my fuel tank on my pu truck. and that's only four days commute. i have had to cut back on what i buy at the store. some days i do not have a quite belly... but maybe this says i can lose some weight? heck even the dmv has raised there tax rates to reg a truck, my 2001 fiver is now costing me over $200.usd a year. up $22.00 from last year. and that was more than the year before.
  7. where i work, in a major city even. engulfed by more city's. we can not even get a fueler/washer $18+ hr to start, with full union bennys,retirement, etc. and lots of overtime. (24-7 company). great job for that kid fresh out of high school. very easy work.
  8. only the east coast has a problem with rv propane. but as to clearances, most of everything west of the mississippy river you will have no problems. DOT regs says bridges, tunnels must clear 14 feet. the rare one will not. most of those are marked. back roads, old rail bridges, old not improved tunnels, etc. for the west coast, watch out on mt pass roads, as some are way to steep, or twisty to pull a trailer or drive a big class A rv. damage will happen.
  9. only one way to keep dust off the blades. keep them wrapped up in there shipping box. i have allergy's, and fight dust in my place like crazy. nothing stops dust from getting on and in everything.
  10. cheaper. does not always say better. sure hurts the wallet less, for now. but hurts your back now. and really hurts the wallet latter when you pay again for a good mattress.
  11. even keys not of this "brand" might work. a honda key can be cut for my rv door. but the poster said no lock smith around. please support a real lock smith as much as possible, it is a art, we still need, and will for a long time.
  12. "stabilize" if he was worried about that, why was he even staying in it. should have packed a bag with food and water, and hiked out.
  13. And all this info goes to any small gasoline motor in use. (including that neglected lawn mower that been sitting out in the weather all winter out behind the garage). sad the pump fuel is watered down with junk that make the fuel go bad in a month or two, and damages the whole fuel system.
  14. here it is june 2021, and gasoline is going well over $4.00 a gallon. some places already over $5.usd a gallon. diesel even more.
