dumb idea
« on: May 13, 2012, 11:25:27 pm »
I know DW and I arn't PC owners yet, but by what I have seen on here by reading almost all of the posts in the forums PC's are in the top 2 class B+, class C MH's there are. What I was wondering is what do you guys feel about something like what m-b does with their cars with the grill badges, what I was thinking is along the lines on a static sticker that would go on the door window or the window over the sink. They would be for mileage that the PC has gone, say the first one at 25,000 miles a second one at 50,000 a third at 100,000 and so on.

I sometimes peek at those USA maps, the discreetly sized ones, with the colored states to see where people have gone.  I think the large maps are a bit ostentatious for me - may ruin the Stealth Mode look.  I don't even think I know what the grill badges are as the only ones I remember seeing are for Sport Car Clubs & stuff like that tends to get snitched now days.  Around here, where copious amounts of winter salt is used, about the only way high mileage gets racked up is to jack up the radiator cap & replace most everything else.  I climb into my F-150 with 160,000 miles without touching the floor--- or frame, come to think on it.

I was just useing the millage as a ie. On their cars m-b used to give you badges to put on the grill to show millage levels, the one that I remember reading about when I was working as a auto tech, one m-b hit a million miles ang got a platium badge. I'm not a big fan of m-b, after seeing them used as taxi cabs when I was stationed in Germany and after working on them.

Hi Folks,

Where do people get those little maps with the states that they've visited
colored in (digital for web page, or physical for PC's back window).  We've
never seen a source.

They sell one variety of the sticker at Camping World.  Go online and search for "state sticker map",

Here’s a variation on a map. For the past 25 (?) years, I’ve bought a souvenir hat pin from many of the places we have visited. I found a map printed on cloth on eBay, stretched it over a painter’s canvas, and mounted it with Velcro on the wall behind the dinette in the slide-out. Makes a good conversation piece and we enjoy looking at it. We’ve been to all 50 states (49 by motorhome), several Canadian provinces, Guam, the Caribbean, and several European countries. Plan to visit Newfoundland and Labrador next year.

At about $5 apiece, I’m afraid to figure up how much I’ve got tied up in it.

DJM, yep, went to Castaway Cay on a Disney Cruise.  As you obviously know, it’s Disney’s private island just for their cruise line.  It’s great and didn’t really get to spend all the time there we would have liked to.  Took the grandkids – one of our best trips.  And they still talk about the trip and want to see the pictures over and over.  2o2

I buy a map postcard from every state that we travel in.  I have a travel photo album that holds 50 4X6 prints.  Each state gets its own page.  I then get a 4X6 index card and add the campground, city and mm/yy that we were there.  That gets put on the back side of the postcard.  So as you flip through you can see the state map, and turn it over and see the campgrounds that we stayed in.  I have faithfully kept it up to date.   Since we spend our winter time in FL that index card has very samll type on it.  If someone is traveling somewhere and they ask where we stayed I can always go to my book and lookup the campground name.  We keep the photo album out for display in the camper.

On this thread of maps and where you’ve been, there’s a place I always wanted to go but never made it, Mexico.  We were signed up for the railroad flat car tour through the Cooper Canyon several years ago, but had to cancel.  Now they don’t run it any more at all.  My wife now refuses due to the violence – won’t even go to southern Texas.  I know tour companies are still running caravans to Mexico.  Anyone been there recently, any experience?

We have taken three tours through Mexico with Adventure Caravans. We liked the flat car tour so much. We then took the top and bottom copper canyon tour and I think it was even better.  That was in 2009. Felt very safe.   Very good trips

To a certain someone:

(And please, Aimee, spike me with all prejudice if I’m wrong to so speak freely):

“American” brand names are paramount a certain Member - yet who indeed, per country of record – now actually “owns” Disney?  Disney is truly an internationally owned conglomerate. And its international “owners’ enjoy both the dividend and appreciation flow, and in multiple countries of record other than the US.

And of what country of manufacture is their “toad”?  While an “American” brand, this American Manufacturers’ same “toad” - as built - originates from Mexico.  While an “American” nameplate, it originates in a country said “certain someone” vows they will not ever visit – either now or in the future.  Not that I disagree with their desire to not visit nor travel there otherwise.
