Haida Gwaii (still the Queen Charlottes to this old fart too) - one of my favorite places, hands down. My MSc was on sea lions on the southern tip. Neat place, but accessible only by boat, as noted...

Never done that, thankful much for missing that experience, but I think I have a sense of how much water 100 head would drink. Good grief, arm muscles is right.

Apparently they did. I will call ETI tomorrow to see what they have to say. I have a tough time believing that this racket is normal.

To further illustrate the issue, I tried to attach a video. Too large, so I will have to do it later.

Interesting issue, although I think that the axles are more of a storage issue than the tires are. I plan to take the weight off the tires and torsion axles for storage, and will do so with jack...

If someone has mentioned this, I missed it. Catalytic heaters may not produce CO (if they are working perfectly, which is another story) but they do produce lots of CO2. IMHO no one should sleep in...

I changed to AGMs years ago. They charge faster, don't fail catastrophically due to plate shedding and consequent shorted cells, and don't require electrolyte level checking. More expensive, but...
