So I wanted try some fickle pickles. They have a shipping policy of no less than 3 units. I just want to try them! If they are good then maybe 3 units is o.k.. But, if they suck I don’t want to be stuck with 2 extra yucks. Contacted the company and it’s 3 or nothing. I do love my regular pickles (Clausen). I buy a jar weekly. I’ll never know.

Buzzelectric — Fickle Pickles appears to be legendary in this part of Texas. It is still a family business. The pickles are not even sold in stores. The owners are not, in opinion, trying to take over the pickle world. I understand the 3 pickle requirement: they would probably lose money or barely break even on a mail order sale of only one jar. I suspect the people who order by mail are probably people like me who pass through town, buy a jar in their store and then decide when they are home 1,000 miles away that they want… Read more »

Chuck, is there a way to make the text we type into comments black? As you’ve pointed out, many of your readers are older. . .and many of us wear glasses to use the computer. But this pale grey text is hard to see (especially on my tiny netbook screen). This is a trend all over the internet, and I don’t understand why it is done. If it would be a simple to change to make this text black for better readability, I would be very grateful. Also, we all make typos, and they are hard to see in this… Read more »

Sherry, let me see if I have the ability to change that type to black. Not sure. Will try.

Hello Roger, really enjoy reading your newsletter! I find in very interesting about your comments about full timers using all the RV Parks; is that not what you are doing???? Just find it funny. Keep up the good work. Lots of great information.

It would be handy if you would place at the end of your Newsletter, a link to the middle of your Newsletter where there is a break-a-way to the Breaking News section … to enable quicker access to that section of the newsletter rather than having to scroll back to it.

As well, a link at the bottom of the Breaking News section to take readers back to the Newsletter without having to likewise scroll around.

Just a thought !!

Hello!
We have been RVing for 30years. First was a tiny Coleman Aspen tent trailer, then 20 years in Lance truck campers, and now a Winnebago Adventurer 32h. Gone are the days of just “hitting the open road” without reservations. There are just too many RVs out there!

My question is, what do you think of RV club memberships like Coast to Coast, etc.?

As newbies we just recently began reading this newsletter. We are members of the Bernard Astronomical Society locally and got involved with them by accidentally attending a Star Party at a TN State Park, Fall Creek Falls about an hour drive from our home. The article Chris Fellows writes is what caught our attention to your magazine in the first place.

We sincerely wish him a speedy recovery and will miss reading about the stars until he is well.

Of course we can have public camp grounds. Just divert some of that money going into Corporate Welfare toward the citizens of the Republic. A billion here, a billion there and pretty soon you have a funded Forest Service and Park service… Easy…

I am not happy with the purchase of this Tow Dolly. I cannot recommend it.

Mac “The Fire Guy” Mc Coy needs to talk to Roger Marble and learn about TPMS. Thumping the tires is very difficult to do when going down the highway at 60mph.

Ron,
Mac says that thumping tires as a way to determine if pressure is okay is not effective. Of course he would not recommend it when an RV is moving. What made you even think that?

Mac also needs to talk to the guy locking his heater door closed… Could be a fire risk if you can’t get in quickly. No keychain, wire, or zipties either. Fix the normal latch if it’s worn out.

I hope to someday meet Chris Fellows, the Astronomer, and wish him a speedy and full recovery. The stars will wait for your return…

The world’s highest hydraulic lift lock is in located in Peterborough Ontario. It’s a 65 foot vertical lift and completed in 1904 on the Trent Canal system.
Also in Peterborough, you’ll find the worlds largest canoe collection with over 600 vessels from around the world.

I was thinking Three Gorges was the world’s largest at 370′ vertical lift, but it does it in 5 connected locks or one “Archmedes elevator” (more complex than simple flooding, but darn clever).
