  1. Good to know, thanks. We're going to try Beartooth Pass, Glacier Park, Durango Col for their train ride then ride up through Col to Rocky Nat Park, Belt, Mt. Trying to cram in as much as we can for 2 weeks. Your post here is an inspiration while looking out at winter....lol.
  2. What an epic ride man! Great pics and writeup. Looking at your room costs, I assume this is after you guys split the cost of a room? The wife and I are thinking about a similar trip but the cost of rooms is quite a bit higher....

    Hillary Just a Thought.

    Federal Law: Title 18. Section 2071Can it be any clearer?Former United States Attorney General Michael Mukasey tells MSNBC that not only is Hillary Clinton's private email server illegal, it "disqualifies" her from holding any federal office.Such as, say, President of the United States."If you do this or that bad thing, you've essentially disqualified yourself as being the leader of the free world," said Mukasey, referring to the illegal server and the illegal handling of classified materials. Mukasey specifically points to one federal law, Title 18. Section 2071. For those of us who do not have United States Code committed to memory, here's what it says: “(a) Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both. (b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.” Yes, it explicitly states "shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States."

    Home insulation questions/advice

    Where the house extends out beyond the foundation, is there anyway you can tell if it is insulated? If not stuffing it with fiberglass might help. On an old house we had years back I cut strips of 2" dow board (pink or blue) and stuck it up on the outside of the house where I could underneath where the house stuck out from the foundation. Every little bit helps.

    Home insulation questions/advice

    Concerning the sink, is it the pipes freezing? Used to be builders ran the pipes in the exterior wall coming up from the basement. Nowadays that's a no no, because of freezing issues. That can be remedied by re running the pipes straight up thru the floor. Is there a basement window under the sink area? If its an old steel framed window they leak a ton of heat. What about the sill plates, are they all insulated? They should be. How old are your windows? Older windows or less insulative windows can cause a house to feel cold and drafty. That effects the whole house. For the time being putting plastic over them can really help. Corners on outside walls quite commonly used to be framed leaving no real room to put any insulation in the corner, or the builders just didn't bother to make sure any small gaps were insulated. Door weatherstripping in bad condition also helps with the cold and drafty feeling within. Attic insulation should be a minimum of r-38 iirc. I like to exceed that by a foot or so. The house we recently bought has 2 x 8 exterior walls, first time I have lived in a place like that. Then they put 1" dow board and wrapped the house. That extra insulation does make a difference. Never knew how much until now. Hope this helps.
  9. The tragedy sucks. Now we can wait and see how far the knee jerks.... Radical Islam needs to be eliminated, all of it if they can't just keep playing in their own sandbox.
  10. Looks well traveled with the stickers, but sure looks great clean too. I buy those things then never put them on much of anything because I know they'll start looking like crap before long....lol

    Yeh, carryinbg a ground through a frame like that often fails due to bad connections along the way, ie rust or corrosion of some sort. bad-I'm setting this up to help hold things down and I figured the sidewall track could hold lighter boxes and so on from falling all over after a 300+ mile trip. Never done this before, so am hoping for the best.

    Got mine for making a move too. Reinforced the floor with better supports, helped alot. Walls leave a lot to be desired though. Putting some track on them too but figure you can't really tighten straps down alot or the wall will give, at least thats the way it feels. Anyone here installed any of that e track? Figured on two continuous runs on the floor, and two on each sidewall Then need to incorporate the 3 chocks on the floor too. Adding another interior light too up in the front.
