I totally dig the forest theme and green colors. Truly. However, up at the top between where it says User CP and the list of forums, or between the top and the post if a post is showing, there's a bit of a problem.

Basically we've got green text on a dark green background or something like that, and the active forum hierarchy isn't readable or legible or whatever -able applies. You might be able to change the text color of just that area without changing anything else. Wouldn't that be nice.

Plus, if there's a place to get back from reading any thread to the main page, I haven't found it yet. Maybe it's hiding in that terrific Green Forest. ;-)

This is Vagabound / Tom. Same guy as over on CRVL. Surly box-truck-dwelling curmudgeon with a cynical sense of humor almost as bad as the founder of this forum. ;-)

  A big thank you to the members

ya know this has been quite stressful for me,many bloodshot eyes,drool dripping look over and it's 1;30 am nights of research
it took me a couple weeks just to find a name before captain obvious kicked in and then all the research into hosting service blah blah blah

but seeing the members here just freely conversing has made it all worth the while

so i am calling it a win,i succeeded in my goal and it makes me happy

hopefully we can get another member or two on the tech maintenance side and i can regress to my natural aesthetic/content creator side

remember,this is your site,thanks gary

Posted by: OutdoorFT - 09-17-2017, 09:30 AM - Forum: Recreational - Replies (26)

Ill start a thread on my journey to picking out an RV. I have a 2011 F350 crew cab long bed. So I have plenty of choices, but not looking to push the max load since I dont want something obnoxiously large. 

Im not really into 5th wheels due to take up good storage (8ft long) and they are normally more expensive anyway. 

So Im doing window shopping while Im here, talking with the owners etc. Trying to feel out what I want. Ideally, Id like a single unit so no unhooking, leveling etc. But, Im being open to the options.

you can call me matt, outdoorft, whatever...but dont call me late for dinner  Big Grin

I have decided that my ATV will not go with me the majority of the time, too big and leaves no room in the bed of the truck for anything else. 

I'm looking for an inexpensive shed, a plastic or coated sheetmetal that hopefully won't rust. 

I've found a few and I can pay a couple of guys to put it together, any recommendations?

  My newly modified Scooter.
Posted by: Gunny - 09-17-2017, 07:51 AM - Forum: Chit-Chat and Off Topic - Replies (16)

I had requested to the Veterans Administration that the hard as a rock tires on my scooter be replaced with pneumatic (air filled) ones for a bit smoother ride. That was two months ago and I had forgotten about it. 

Friday a guy knocks on the door to pick up my scooter, seems the paperwork went through and soon I will be 'stylin' around the mobile home park with new tires. 

These are small tires and wheels, so just for the heck of it I looked at the purchase order cost. For a set of 4 tiny tires $512.00. Better be Goodyears.



These are the tires they are replacing.

  Propane and refrigeration
Posted by: Cammalu - 09-17-2017, 07:31 AM - Forum: Heating/Air Conditioning - Replies (15)

I was all set to buy a fancy dancy new compression fridge for my rig when money for it went elsewhere and I got stuck using propane on my three way rv absorption fridge.  It's been several months now and I've decided to keep my fridge as the propane use seems to be so tiny as to make almost no difference. I don't have a clue what this fridge is using but I also use propane to cook daily and for the water heater also and it seems I'm using less than a gallon of propane a week.  It seems hardly possible but when I fill up the most the tank has taken was three gallons and that was after an extended period of not buying propane for about a month. 

I'm not buying a new fridge!

The bus, or skoolie is a great alternative for those of us who require a little more room than a van has to offer.  There are many different shapes and sizes of bus available as well.
I wanted to start this thread off.  The coffee is brewing.  I will be back to write more after my AM fix.
