    Is it true that there are around 20,000 RV fires each year? If so what is being done about this issure?

  2. Geoffrey Pruett on October 18th, 2011 8:40 am

    Fire is a worry with an RV as they can happen remote from any outside help so we practice the same cautions as with a car, alway have a working extingisher of the ABC variety at hand. In our A the entry door is just behind the co-pilots seat so the extingisher is below the seat easy to reach from inside or out. Have used one on fires several times since I started driving but only one time on our unit, actually my fathers while traveling with my parents and my 2 sons. It was a propane issue created by the person who refilled the tanks and because of the extingisher it is a family story, not a major loss story. Still travel with the propane on but pre run everything in travel mode in the driveway/camp site so that the noises of travel do not distract from my driving.

    Hey, you used to write great posts, but the last several posts have been kinda boring… I miss your super posts. Past few posts are just a little bit out of track!

  4. Jose Azcona on July 15th, 2012 3:35 am

    I think other site proprietors should take this website as an model, very clean and excellent user genial style and design, as well as the content. You’re an expert in this topic!

  5. African Mango on July 16th, 2012 12:50 am

    Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!

  6. Shenna Addleman on July 26th, 2012 6:29 am

    An interesting dialogue is value comment. I believe that you must write more on this matter, it won’t be a taboo topic however typically individuals are not sufficient to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers

  9. Allyn Oshey on July 31st, 2012 6:53 am

    Thank you for another wonderful article. Where else could anyone get that kind of information in such a perfect way of writing? I’ve a presentation next week, and I’m on the look for such info.

  10. Shae Ludwig on August 8th, 2012 11:11 am

    Can I just say what a relief to search out someone who truly is aware of what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know methods to convey an issue to mild and make it important. More folks have to read this and perceive this side of the story. I cant imagine youre no more standard since you undoubtedly have the gift.

  11. Lawrence Deisher on August 8th, 2012 3:46 pm

    Hi, Neat post. There is a problem with your web site in internet explorer, would check this… IE still is the market leader and a large portion of people will miss your fantastic writing due to this problem.

    Nice post, I like so much, it’s the best information for me..

    I have considered this issue more in the last week in an eofrft to really give it fuller consideration, but it still is not rising above a certain level of meh for me. If I did care, I would have voted in the poll for the next AOTUS to be someone who knows how to run a large and complex government organization first (which I believe thereby implies that they know a thing or two about advocacy and lobbying) with a solid knowledge of issues related to archives and/or history and technology. The AOTUS isn’t keeping archivists on the edge of their seats with exciting new outreach, access, preservation, description, etc. archival tools and methods that they themselves are launching. The AOTUS is there to lead a federal agency, advocate for that agency and its goals, set priorities, provide a face and voice at that level of government and professional colleagues, etc.The AOTUS should not necessarily be a former president of SAA or another professional organization because that level of professional service does not necessarily have anything to do with an individual’s ability to lead a complex government agency. Sure, it sounds nice that one of our people would be in the position of AOTUS, but SAA presidents-no matter how successful or admired-carry their own political baggage (no matter how SAA-centric or trivial).I think when I was a younger, slightly fresher faced archivist I thought NARA would provide resources and support similar to what I was used to my state historical society/archives/library providing (to varying degrees by state): training for archivists from throughout the state (whether you worked for a government entity or the Brotherhood of Really Important People); leadership on cooperative description, collection development, digitization, etc. projects/training; coordinating issues of mutual interest such as loaning collections between institutions; etc. I realize that NARA’s responsibility is to act as a custodian (and so much more) for federal records, but I do think that there could be more sharing of the great things NARA knows and is figuring out how to do (and I’m not just talking about the nth presentation at a conference about ERA).As I considered these comments again, I’ve wondered if I’m expecting more from NARA: do what degree to folks with an interest in environmental, land-use, etc. issues expect the EPA to assist their eofrfts? Do museum professionals look to the Smithsonian? Yet the legal profession takes cues from the Dept. of Justice and the SCOTUS, no? So the question for me remains, what does NARA mean to me as an archivist (other than a place for former students to find a job and then find themselves in golden handcuffs)?I return to the practical: it is important to me as a non-NARA archivist that NARA be a well-run agency and not provide any embarrassments a la the National Zoo’s string of animal deaths and the Smithsonian’s well-known leadership turmoil of a few years ago. Should I want more? Probably. Can I expect more? I can only hope the next AOTUS will have a greater vision for more from NARA.
