That's good to know. I see old Winnebagos from time to time, up for sale; more often than not they have the 318 and I've wondered what those were like as far as reliability, etc.

Re: The Bar 2015 Edition

Got myself an idea out here. I have a very large ice chest on the boat that generates a lot of melted water. It's clean water. Well it turns out the drain plug has standard garden hose threads on it. I have a 120-volt electric water pump and hoses that I use to transfer fresh water to the camper fr...

Re: The Car Thread

We'd use it on weekends to haul off the yard waste generated from picking up sticks and rose bush trimmings. On that point, I've long thought it would be kinda fun - and funny - to chop one of those wagons down into a mini-Ranchero. I still don't know which one of the Johnson twins I went out with ...

Yeah.

Tim Akers & The Smoking Section, and their cover of that damned "Uptown Funk".


Except, their version makes the original sound like total shit. It's too bad that the clowns that wrote the original had to produce it and release it so that someone else could come in and do it right.

My brothers house has bedbugs and he's found out that they kill them by heating the house to 115 degrees. Well, that's the not-thoroughly-tested approach. That's a long-shot, at best. His best bet is to get a steamer, and prepare to spend a few days in a row being very, very meticulous along basebo...
