Re: Pizza lovers check this out

Davydd,
It would be a tough fit in a B, but here is a wood fired pizza oven a friend of mine built in his back yard. It works great. Its super insulated and holds the heat for hours. He fires it up...

Re: Post your MPG

This may not be the right topic for this but it spurred a thought. Ever since my wife convinced me to buy a used 09 Prius back in March (I have to admit, it is the best 'car' I've ever owned), I've...

Re: Peggy's Cove, not far from Halifax, Nova Scotia

As Stan said, Beautiful!

I have got to get my wife a passport. I'm retiring next May and in the heat of the summer, travel to Canada sounds more appealing than heading south.

Re: The hunt is over

Re: Green Moss on RV.

I noticed a little green mildew on my American Cruiser around the back entry door. We always have a dispenser of Clorox Wipes in the van and they wiped it right off. If you have a lot of it, you...

Re: Dodge Xplorer (which is best?)

Just looking at the pictures, and assuming both are in good mechanical condition, I'd go with the 85. They said no rust and the pictures of the underside (particularly the LP Tank) seem to support...

Reminds me of the fold-up berths on the old Maine Maritime Academy training ship (former troop transport USNS Upsur). I found out the hard way that they could be folded up with someone (me) in one.

Re: To cover or not to cover that is the question

I don't cover the B as I think the molded fiberglass is not prone to leakage and the 2 side windows and 2 roof vents fit well to it, i.e. no big gaps filled with caulk. I did just buy a cover...
