What about Truck Camper Magazine Chuck? They certainly have a good digital following. And still smoky skies here in Central Oregon; but getting better.

Well we were staying in thousand trails camp site. Lake of the springs. Within two days told to evacuate now!!! It was scary. We saw black clouds. Thick smoke across the roads. News people along side the road taking pictures! Very brave or what were you thinking!

I might go to quartzite to hang out with my friends outdoors, but there is no way you’ll get me inside that crowded tent his winter.

Hmmm, gee, I’m sure you meant to say that FEWER than 10,000 have died from Covid-19? Only 10,000? Check the CDC website for stats on deaths with and without the effects of Covid-19. Almost 200,000 people have died since the beginning of the pandemic. Each is too damn many no matter whose data you believe.

Yes Kim, there are people who believe that if someone with diabetes, cancer and hypertension dies in a car accident, the cause of death is a preexisting condition and not the accident. They buy into the same logic for those unfortunates who pass away from Covid infections. There are those who perpetuate this myth on social media.

No matter how you slice the data, still much lower deaths than the flu.

Angela, perhaps you’re thinking of the so called Spanish Flu of 1919. Even Agent Orange himself, last February, quoted an annual body count of 32,000 from seasonal flu. As far as slicing data goes, portable refrigerated truck/morgues were never required for flu victims. If you don’t believe the numbers, at least acknowledge that the pictures tell the story as well.

Hey Chuck since you advocate fairness and respect. Why are you blasting Marcus and Camping World? Your subtle swipes are not veiled and don’t promote taking the high road. It seems you have an axe to grind, and while it might be soundly based, some of us are new to this scene and you are demonstrating the epitome of denial and not allowing those who take an opposing view to express it. Even the big newspapers permitted that until recently, even Yahoo did. Now it’s easy to read who their principle players and readers are. Simply denying them a place to express their opposition, then following their behavior, hardly represents freedom of expression.

Wayne, I don’t agree with you that I blasted Marcus Lemonis. I believe that is an exaggeration.

It’s an encompassing term. You have repeatedly expressed your displeasure on several occasions. Seems to me you’ve made your point, no need to repeat yourself.

Was it really necessary for you to interject your baseless rhetoric and misinformation into this comment. I thought we were getting rid of people like you.

Does anyone know what the “Elite” offerings are if you do the 3 year Good Sam sign up? Hell, for that matter, what do you get with the $29 yearly membership? They don’t seem to spell out what you get with any membership.

Can anyone advise on Good Sams extended service warranty? Don’t care for the idea of giving any of my money to Camping World. Have researched a few other companies too. Any advice would be appreciated.

Craig, check around. Camping World and other dealers make a ton of money on extended warranties. When you find a program you like, read the fine print carefully!! If you are a full-timer be sure there is no clause buried in the paperwork that voids the warranty because of that.

If I had of known those magazines were owned by Marcus I would have cancelled the subscriptions long ago.

As soon as Mr. Lemonis decided to make politics a part of being a customer, I cancelled my subscription to Motorhome Magazine, cancelled my motorhome insurance through his subsidiary company, and cancelled my Emergency Roadside Service plan too. If I could have gotten a refund on my (then 3 month old) Lifetime Membership, I would have cancelled that too.

Politics + business = 1/2 of your customer base is angry.

Lesson learned (I hope).

Or you could pour one of the half full barrels into one if the other half full ones. Same result but you have to lift half as many half full barrels. I always look for the approach that takes less work.

Pour half of a full barrel into an empty barrel. You now have 6 full, 9 half full and 6 empty. Each gets 2 full, 3 half full and 2 empty.

Exactly. Glad I read this Steve before repeating it.

The way I arrived at this solution: the problem starts with 10.5 barrel equivalents of wine in 21 barrels. Just have to find a way to redistribute the same 10.5 barrel equivalent. A whole bunch of solutions are possible, but this was the simplest.

Yep. Just need a sterile siphon hose. Flow will stop when the levels are even.

Just so that people reading this article have the correct info, after seeing one of the stories published this Sunday where it was stated “Across the USA, even as the pandemic has claimed nearly 200,000 lives and nearly 30 million people are on unemployment, …” I went to the Bureau of Labor Statistics and found that the number at the end of August is 13.5 million, not 30 million(which is what it was at the height of the pandemic).

The unemployment rate – Bureau of Labor Statistics

I’m 70 and have high blood pressure which is controlled. My life expectancy is another 15 years.

If I get COVID-19 and die in 2 weeks, COVID-19 killed me!

The only way to tell how many people have died of COVID-19 is to look at excess deaths this year compared to the past 10 years.

It takes time for deaths to be reported but eventually excess deaths will tell us what really happened. The CDC is keeping track at:

take the 7 full barrels, pour 1/2 into 7 empty barrels… now you have 21 half barrels… each son get 7 – 1/2 full barrel… Easy.
