  1. We use the TireMinder. It works great for us.
  2. Sounds like a heck of a deal for someone.
  3. It seems like our roads are getting more and more dangerous. People are spending too much time looking at their phones and making bad decisions.
  4. Go to Blue Ox's website and ask that question on their tech support page/form. They will tell you exactly and provide part numbers. You can also do that at etrailer.com.
  5. We just changed our toad from an aging Jeep to a new Ford Ranger. We have an all Blue Ox configuration. The base plate installation was straightforward, but the real challenge was in the taillight wiring. I was very fortunate to have a brother-in-law who is a mechanic and he has quite a bit of experience in wiring issues. There are just lots of options in this stuff. The Blue Ox wiring kit instructions were of limited use. But, etrailer.com has some very detailed videos on the process. That saved our bacon. We ignored the Blue Ox instructions and just did what the etrailer installe
  6. Please keep us updated. They'll figure it out.
  7. Some day, some savvy car dealer will become a toad specialist and sell ready-to-go towables.
  8. We actually started out our retirement nomadic life sans RV. We thought that the temporary housing model would offer a relatively inexpensive lifestyle that optimized freedom. It didn't turn out that way for us. 1) For us, it turned out to be expensive. Unless one is willing to spend time in the very least expensive motels, your average name brand hotel/motel would eat up most budgets. We focused on AirBNB and VRBO. Yes, there were some deals on monthly stays and we lucked into some great opportunities. But over time, you really do get what you pay for. (Pro tip: Don't trust the
  9. If you're looking for a great deal on library e-books, you need to go no further than the Livingston Municipal Library. A library card/account there gives you access to an enormous online library of books. Sure, we buy e-books regularly, but we also download library books for free. The library's consortium uses an app called OneDrive and the lending library behind it is extensive.
  10. My son is supposed to get his vaccine this morning. He's on a surgical team in OKC and works with Covid patients daily.
  11. We only buy Milton gauges. They are strong, heavy, and time-tested.
  12. I'd advise choosing a variety that smells good. Many orchids don't. 😕
  13. There certainly aren't enough telecommuting roles. That's for sure. But, there are needs in small states or remote places that have a very difficult time being filled. South Dakota is a good example. Airline commuters tend to avoid those places because the connections are typically terrible. While not telecommuting, it could be a great fit for a full-time RVer that will physically go there. Heck, RVers tend to like remote places like that. So, in some circumstances, you would have a distinct advantage over people that would need to buy air tickets and hotel rooms. (You would snicker a
