Thank you for letting us know about Outdoor Adventure. We too had a really bad experience with them. I did read the attorney generals letter and realize all of it happened to us with one thing missing. Their security team. It was like living under some communist regimen. What I mean is that if your camper is not parked right they can ask you to leave the premises with a warning violation. I was like what? We all have to have our campers a certain way? Wow. The nazi police as I call them were so bad we cancelled our membership with a lawsuit if they did not cancel us. Need to get a hold of AG.

A very informative newsletter.Thank you.

I’ve been with you since the days of “Out West”. Your weekly newsletter is ALWAYS thought-provoking. The fact that comments from readers with a wide range of opinions are included each week is ample evidence of your “objectivity”. There is nothing more stimulating than a good live face-to-face discussion among folks who disagree but respect each other. Alas, I believe the internet has done us a disservice by allowing some people to disregard common courtesy and civility because they can be “anonymous” and not held accountable for statements that go far beyond the bounds of “disagreement”.

Just a comment on your ad for an item called Angry Mama. I checked it out on Amazon, as you suggested, and found that it has almost universally terrible reviews.

It looks like the reviews are between 3.5 and 4 stars, so overall positive. I use a website called to check out Amazon reviews. They say the product is a 3.6 overall after taking into account possible fake reviews.
See the site: I recommend this site, especially when you have just a handful of reviews.
Maybe it’s just the purple one 🙂 The other colors were rated higher…
But you know the old saying, your mileage may vary.

I use the AngryMama, and it works great if you know how to use it.

Meanwhile, the drill adapter for “levelling” your rig shows a stabilizer jack that should never be used for significant levelling.

In response to Ken who accused Chuck of dictating what readers can say – as I recall some months ago Chuck’s reminder was more about HOW to express one’s opinion. This is a good reminder to all of us and much needed these days.

ps, Chuck, while you were called liberal and a smart {bleeped}, at least Ken didn’t play the age card. ?
