Thanks. I didn't notice that on the photo.

You can get a set of 4 threaded jack stands for 35 dollars, I have a friend that is using them but he is set up for a 6 months stay.

Anybody got any others?
He read here (FRF) that you should not support the weight of the RV on the stabilizers ( they are for stabilizing only).

No lie- I drove past that rig a dozen times but it wasn't until we were leaving the campground with the trailer in tow did I finally stop to take a picture. So, you want to talk about being obvious... 22' truck and 42' fifth wheel stopped while I jumped out and took the picture!

Most of the time, the owners aren't home. But even if they were and I was asked, I'd share that they were definitely something I don't see every day and wanted a pic. I'm goofy friendly like that.

This thread makes me think that there are a LOT of forum members known around campfires everywhere as the "local perv that keeps sneaking around taking pictures."

The best time to stop by is when you see them firing up the grill and putting the steaks and burgers on. No good host would turn you away.

I jokingly told a neighbor their stew smelled delicious and asked what it was. About 15 minutes later, she came over with a bowl of it!

(Sad part was- it smelled WAY better than it tasted.)

My wife is from China, so unless I am cooking I don't think you will say the food smells that good hahahaha Tastes good, but, I can live without the smell, even she says it smells bad

My Sister lived in Hong Kong for a couple years while her husband worked there. First thing they were told by other "ex-pat's" was that if you liked a dish in a small remote restaurant in a nearby town, NEVER ask what was in it".

Sometimes the "meat" used to bark or swing through trees.

yeah, my wife cooks out in the garage so the house doesn't smell. And when we are in China, I always examine what the food is and never eat anything with meat in it. My first trip there, I was never so excited to see a McDonald's in my life

I had to ask. What does she cook? I love Chinese food and the smell. Onions, garlic and those long chili peppers, yum yum.

Nothing like the Witch's Brew from Macbeth......

In the poison'd entrails throw.—
Toad, that under cold stone,
Days and nights has thirty-one;
Swelter'd venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first i' the charmed pot!
ALL. Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
2 WITCH. Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing,—
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
ALL. Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
3 WITCH. Scale of dragon; tooth of wolf;
Witches' mummy; maw and gulf
Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark;
Root of hemlock digg'd i the dark;
Liver of blaspheming Jew;
Gall of goat, and slips of yew
Sliver'd in the moon's eclipse;
Nose of Turk, and Tartar's lips;
Finger of birth-strangled babe
Ditch-deliver'd by a drab,—
Make the gruel thick and slab:
Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,
For the ingrediants of our caldron.
ALL. Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
2 WITCH. Cool it with a baboon's blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.



We used to quote various parts of this passage to each other as we went to the High School Cafeteria in reply to the question "What kind of mystery meat do you think they will be serving today?"

The Weird Sisters, three of the great characters in literature. "Macbeth shall never vanquish'd be until great Birnam wood to high Dunsinane hill shall come against him." Boy, what a setup THAT was!

As for there being nothing like the recipe above, you've obviously never tasted Herk's homemade limoncello. Don't tell, but I think he might have also slipped in a dash of alcohol.
