I look at my MH sitting outside and try to "travel" while recovering by reading IRV2, probably a little too much..haha....Thanks Mike
My turn is coming soon. Labral tear left hip. Holding off until the S&B goes up for sale and everything is in storage or the coach.

As for fear, none here to be had. But I can tell you I have spent a lot of time in DC the last 6 years and there are plenty who fear me. Some of them do a 180 and walk very fast when they see me coming.

Good luck on your surgery. It's good to hold off until you are ready and don't have any major projects ahead of you. People who haven't had a repair of a tendon/ligament don't understand the pain that comes after the surgery. It is way worse than a broken bone and takes much longer to heal. I held off on this surgery as I had my right shoulder reconstructed three years ago and knew what I was getting into. I did everything I possibly could prior to this surgery, until the pain got too bad, so it would be ready when I'm healed.

I too had many work related trips to DC during my career, it is really interesting to see how things get done there. Good luck and I hope you have a quick recovery once you have the surgery....Mike

I've said this before,,, but we got pulled over in NM for no reason,,(in the rv) BUT,, the Officer was very nice... I had really no problem with it... I showed him respect, and he did the same to me... Thats the way it should be in these United States... He said the tags came back registered to a pickup,, this being a class A RV... Maybe he entered it wrong number also... I told him where we were going, he was nice, (I'll say again,, I think he was county, Not a Trooper) , I shook his hand when I left and said be safe... I could see the look on his face,,, but I meant it....

If you want more proof about the abuses of Civil Asset forfeiture here is a good video:

My company conducts international business. As such, we constantly have many international visitors who tell us about the travel advisories that they received when making plans to visit. Many wanted to come with buckets of cash to purchase things like Levi's Jeans, Apple iPhones, Calrose Rice, American Car Parts, Cessna and Piper plane parts, and other common non-crime related items that are hard to get or very expensive in their home countries.

Many U.S.A. Citizens would be shocked to know that there are travel advisories for entering the U.S.A. from Great Britain, Australia, Japan, France, Russia, Germany, and Canada(already mentioned), regarding Civil Asset Forfeiture.

Many of our foreign visitors compare travel into the U.S.A. in 2015 to Germany in the late 1930's! Even our Russian visitors are cautious, and they brag that this is "normal" source of revenue for local governments back home and that's why the really wealthy have armed guards 24/7 !!

With the combination of Civil Asset Forfeiture, Homeland Security detention regulations, and constant media pleas for common citizens to report any suspicious activity, the U.S.A. is currently a very scary place, when seen from outside it's borders.

As citizens living and breathing, working and functioning normally every day we have very slowly become acclimated to giving up our civil liberties ever since 9/11. Nobody around us really notices how much has changed. However, foreigners do!
