Re: Dear Abby: I think I’m camping with a Sparkle Pony.

Ditto. A few years back we gave a ride to a friend who had wanted to go for years whose wife had no interest. She finally agreed to "let" him go. She dropped him off at our house without a word, and practically burned rubber getting away. The friend was camping with an ill-prepared life lo...

Re: Politics, Everyday, All day... morning, noon and night....II

I attended a caucus in WA state on Saturday. Never been to one before, but seemed a good year to start. Was kind of a cold, dreary day, the sort of day that young healthy people don't mind standing in for an hour or so, not so much the older crowd, of which I was one. Most of the many Bernie support...

Re: The Bar 2016 Edition

Dick's Cream Stout really is so creamy that you have to be really careful opening the bottle or it will foam up and make a mess. Have tried lots of other cream stouts and none have been even close.

Re: How much water do you use? RV camping

While you guys are wincing..... Not all women waste water. I use about a liter per shower, including washing shoulder length hair.

Re: Any advice on where to buy Temporary RV Insurance

The RV companies we have worked with offer insurance for the vehicle (not liability) as an add-on. We checked with our auto insurance, and they will cover the liability but not the RV, presumably since it is worth way more than the average car. I have heard of auto insurance policies that will add a...

Pretty high if you like straight espresso shots in the morning. We even had the PlayaSkool crowd stopping by last year.
However, the required T stake pounding and removal by all camp members seems to keep the riff raff away.

I usually lose a toe nail or so a year due to hiking down steep trails. Usually the new nail grows in under the old one, then the old one eventually falls off with no pain at all. This process often takes months, but depends on how bad the initial bruising is. The key is absolutely do not pick at th...

As I understand it, the origin of the mile was 1,000 paces by Roman soldiers. Took more than a few centuries later to standardize that.
