Does that have anticancer effects, or does it affect a GAS outlook..?

To answer a previous post..... Yes, the Amish are heavily involved in the construction of RV's. They show up on time and work hard. I am sure they are not exactly proud of the finished product. North Central Indiana is where the majority of RV's are built and that area is home to a large number of the Amish. Bicycles and buggies everywhere.

The Amish are master craftsmen, nothing but respect for their skills, and their inclusionary life style.
I couldn't do live that way, but good on them for staying a difficult course in these modern, "fancy" times.

I only made mention, since their sub-sect, the Mennonites, were mentioned...

FWIW the Amish split off from the Mennonites. I should have just said "Amish" since everybody knows what you're talking about then.

Thank you for the history lesson. I had presumed, given the limited contact I had with both branches represented in PA, that the luddite Amish were adhering to older doctrine, therefore being the oder sect.
Plus, figuring if either was going to be exposed to methamphetamine, and it's subsequent abuse...
Anyhoo, leave it to me to put the cart before the horse.

In which case, would the reflective triangle need to be white or amber instead of the "traditional" international orange?

I've seen enough of these buggies while driving 18-wheelers in eastern Indiana to be able to say definitively that they use the same orange ones found on any farm equipment.

Ah, but how many have you seen as in my allusion of the pony pushing the buggy?

Hence my coloration query, if the buggy's back was facing forward...
(Nothing like over-exposition to make a lame joke EVEN worse!)

I've been thinking about something similar but have yet to find a source of HDPE panels over 3.5mm thick.

There was an excellent essay on Popular Science's website entitled, "California needs to stop saying everything causes cancer." Alas, the website only has their most recent stuff, but maybe it's available at libraries.

I had a tree of about 24 inches in diameter fall on my bus. It would have taken out an RV, a car, even my house. On the bus it just left the slightest ripple on the roof, hardly visible unless you look for it. They're monsters, built to last and to protect.

No doubt!
I've managed to retain a roll of fluorescent flagging from my tree planting days.
Its purpose was to mark trees that had blown over, but were caught by one of their neighbors before completing their plant face-plant.
It's emblazoned with the caption:

So have they changed the state name officially to Cancerfornia now? I shouldn't joke about that, I guess, I've lost two really good friends to cancer in the past couple years...

My previous B700 took a nice hit from the top half of a tree that got broken off in a storm. Came in to check my security footage and the damned thing was wearing the top half of a tree like some sort of crown. Took some time to get it down -- it was good-sized, heavy, and neatly lodged against the mirrors. No damage though.

We are living full time near orchards which means we basically live on a giant ant hill. Luckily just sugar ants. But I have found the best way to keep them out is to park on a piece of plywood. Buy 100% deet from amazon or wherever and mix it with Vaseline (wear gloves) then simply draw a circle around your tires all hoses and cords attached to the bus/vehicle. Itís works amazingly!

Fortunately, I'm not plagued with fire ants at present, just those tiny, annoying pissants.

Have you got a formula of proportions for the mixture?
I've made a sugar/boric acid solution, but that takes a long time, and there are countless colonies in this pasturage I'm encamped in.
I'd much prefer keeping the industrious little boogers on their side of the bus, as opposed to running my own personal Ant-Auschwitz...

LOL at the Ant-schwitz. I'd prefer to keep them out in the first place, myself. But if that's not an option, I get a great sadistic pleasure in taking them out slowly, though not as slowly as the boric acid. I've found boric acid is glacier-slow, compared to the Terro liquid bait. This stuff says it even kills the queen. I live alone, and no pets, so I don't have to worry much about collateral damage.

Unfortunately, I haven't found this locally in an indoor-type packaging, so I buy the outdoor version, which is sealed packets in little plastic stakes meant for insertion in the ground. The stakes are designed so you can open them for the purposes of cutting open the packets inside to attract the ants. I took them out of the stakes completely, cut off a corner and emptied them into a used heat-and-serve tray, and put it where I know they will get to it... Come and get it, ya little bastards...

And boy did they make a bee-line for it. Little bastards drowned themselves in it at times. Two packets at a time took about 2-3 days for them to polish off, and starting the third or fourth day, I started noticing a reduction in the ones I saw crawling around. Within a week, I might see one or two every 2-4 hours. It's now been 2-3 weeks and I haven't seen one for a week, maybe two.
