  2. On behalf of the Military and Veterans Chapter, we would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! Best regards, Richard "Doc" Strait, Alternate National Director and Webmaster Military and Veterans Chapter
  3. I am the Alternate National Director for the Military Veterans Chapter, MVC. The MVC does not require sponsorship. To be eligible to join the MVC the individual must meet one of the following: Be currently on active duty in the US military, National Guard, or Canadian Armed Forces. Honorable discharged or retired from one of the above. Be a widow or widower of a US military, National Guard, or Canadian Armed Forces member. Be a DoD employee who was embedded with our active military. Current FMCA member. Best regards, Richard "Doc"
  4. Thank you everyone for the responses and suggestions. I will go through the various routes and points of interest. Best regards, Richard "Doc"
  5. Howdy everyone. At the end of October I will be headed from the Houston Texas area to the Mobile Alabama area. I have heard for year that I-10, I-20, and parts of US-190 through Eastern Texas and much of Louisiana are in bad shape. Does anyone have an update on that? Suggested routes? Does not need to be the quickest or shortest route either. I am retired so I have the ability to take my time. Thank you. Richard "Doc"
  6. Have some ferrites on hand too. Even with the motor off, you may have noise and interference that the ferrites will help with. Best regards, Richard "Doc", AC8AL
  7. I am a half breed...LOL.. I was a Fleet Marine Force Hospital Corpsman and served my entire career with the Marines on the green side. Only time I spent on ship was when the Marine Unit I was with would go on a float. I never even did time at a Naval base. The US Space Force does fall under the Department of the Air Force. They could be called Space Jockeys, Orbiters, or even Rocketeer. Right now though since they are in their infancy, how about "Space Cadets?" Richard "Doc"
  8. I have not found a "Space Force" flag or magnetic flag yet. Since the US Space Force is now considered a branch of the US Armed Forces, I will add it.
  9. Wife and I fly the USA, POW/MIA, USMC, and USN flags. We also have magnets of LE and FR flags that we display. Eventually we will have small flags for all the military branches that we will display.
  10. On behalf of the Military Veterans Chapter, I would like to wish everyone a Happy Independence Day/4th of July. If you have the chance, please read MVC President Weithofer's Independence Day Reflections. Best regards, Richard "Doc" Strait Military Veterans Chapter Alternate National Director and Webmaster
  11. My wife grew up in the Boston area. She is Irish and Italian. She served in the Marine Corps for many years as a warehouseman. My saying is slightly different due to all that: "Happy wife, SAFE life."
  12. Wife and I have a Class with the Ford V10. As others have said, it will get you there but it will not set any land speed records or win a fuel economy award in those mountains. We also do not tow the vehicle when going through the mountains or on the hot days. We are considering upgrading to a super C or Fiver. Best regards, Richard "Doc"
  13. I put the slides in when heavy storms or high winds come through. I have put the jacks up during high winds too. I put the awning out when the weather is decent and little wind. If I leave the rig, the awning comes in. Happy Camping and RVing!
  14. I have used a Cobb grill for several years now. No complaints at all. It has done a great job. Best regards, Richard "Doc"
