    Any Wordle players hereabouts?

    ^^ So your first word guess must have been TONAL? Pretty sweet to get green or yellow on every square right off the bat!

    Toll Roads and Fees

    More than slight… in IL the I-Pass use gives you 50% off the posted price on Illinois tollways, so it’s always worthwhile to use. I don’t believe that discount carries to other states though. (I-Pass is part of the E-ZPass network.)

    Toll Roads and Fees

    It's been a couple years (pre-Covid) but for work I used to travel to & through the DFW area quite often. The toll payment system was called "Plate Pass" and read plates in order to bill the vehicle for tolls, as the OP described. However I was always driving a rental car with a registered...

    Do you speak Chinese?

    My wife learned a fair amount of Mandarin a couple years ago (self-taught in the DuoLingo app), when she was working with a ministry focused on outreach to victims of human trafficking. In the U.S., many massage parlors (in name only) and nail salons are staffed by Chinese women who are promised...

    Non RV financial?

    I'm admittedly a "live debt free" guy and pretty hardline Dave Ramsey follower. ;) My wife and I paid off our house last year (in our mid 40's), have owned everything else free and clear for many years, and never plan to go into debt again. "The borrower is slave to the lender" as the Bible...

    Help with potential Mice Problem

    Anything left in the RV certainly could invite the mice in, depending on the rodent population in that area. They’re always looking for a snack and some nesting material. We completely emptied out our RV one off-season, or thought so… a box of Kleenex was left behind. When I returned, the...

    Help moving fifth wheel

    Nice rig! And thanks for serving our country :) Good suggestions so far on finding people/services that may be able to move the rig. Is your overall plan to have it in a permanent site, and live full time in the trailer? (Nevermind, I saw your other posts. Sounds like a fun adventure!)

    Help with potential Mice Problem

    Who needs Google when we have it right here on the forum? ;) See this link --> Ultimate mouse trap I also highly endorse the bucket trap. It's the perfect solution for a situation like you describe, where the RV is in storage or only visited occasionally. The traps cost a few dollars to...

    Gas Buddy

    FWIW the daily limit was recently bumped up to $100. That may not fill an empty RV tanks with current prices, but it does help. The bank account link has been just as secure as any other that I have established for automatic/online payments. No issues there.

    Gas Buddy

    I use Gas Buddy pretty religiously, and have for ~15 years since it was a website... way before smart phones existed. A year or two ago I enrolled in their payment card, and have been very pleased with the extra discounts. Usually 5-6 cents/gallon at most stations, but sometimes up to 25...

    Free Covid-19 test kits

    I suppose I was referring to all taxes and levies collected… which is where all government funds come from, right? (Except when they just print more money or dive further into debt I suppose.) They’ve proven over and over again they can’t operate on a budget or make smart investments.

    Free Covid-19 test kits

    ^^ Very true. Anything the government offers was taken from us (taxpayers) in the first place. And I’ve heard concerns about the accuracy of false positives & negatives on home covid test kits, so something to keep in mind. We got a few of the “free” kits for our household this month too (Use By...

    Buy Now, or Wait Until Spring

    I guess that’s kinda how the Supply & Demand economy works, huh? 😉 What about me… I sold last year, but plan to buy again in the future. Who knows where I belong, hehe.

    Least favorite Christmas songs

    I was just going to suggest that! I’m one of several drummers at our large church and we’ve performed this version a few times… It’s always a big crowd pleaser.
