Medicare Questions

My wife (57yo)has received determination of full disability, and immediately eligible for medicare. I'm still working full time for a fortune 50 company at 62-1/2. My continued working as been 1. income, 2. health insurance. My corporate annual benefit and health elections has to be selected in the next two weeks. Yes, I should have done research before being presented with this determination, but everything I knew, it was rare for immediate medicare opportunity. I'll call HR Monday, but my experience is they are generally clueless and of little help. How does medicare work with corporate insurance, or would I drop her off my corporate insurance plan. This year, the medical plan is no medical premiums, however, for her and I, it's a $7,000 deductible. 2nd lesser discussion item, with her being complete, I may only work another year or so. Corporation dropped the pension plan before I joined the company, so I get nothing after I stop working. I'll need some insurance for a little over a year starting in 2022.

RE: Regular or premium

At the current price here of $1.75/gal that narrows the price differential for the Ecoboost from $0.40/gal to $0.32/gal. I will stick with regular. Anecdotal without any data, my 3.5L ecoboost seemed to pull a lot better on 91 pure gas.

RE: Regular or premium

if the mfg recommends premium, why would you consider anything else?

RE: AV gas for the generator

You CAN buy quite a few carbs for that price. AV gas, many small airports have automated pumps after hours :) I've never had a problem finding fuel at listed gas stations. After the 2nd time in 3 years of spending $75 repairing a snow blower and over $100 repairing a lawn mower, I'll pay for the avgas. Five years later, they are still 1st pull start every time.

RE: AV gas for the generator

Ethanol free is nearly impossible to find in some parts of the country. Find who has it here: That site should be named "pure BS" It shows several supposed gas stations near me that supposedly sell Ethanol free gas. THOSE STATIONS NEAR ME DO NOT! Take that site like many other sites on the wobbly web with a grain of salt. It is up to the local states and counties whether they allow Ethanol free or not.. MOST do not allow it. GET OVER IT, Ethanol free for the most part has gone the way of the Dinos, you can thank your local tree huggers and corn lobbies for that... Then write reviews and ask the site to remove those stations. But have you asked the stations? Station closest to me, has the pump over in the truck diesel lanes.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

And of course lots of trucks coming from...well...everybody in the next couple years. So nice to see more competition come into the market. OEM's typically are typically on a 5 yr cycle. Tesla cycle is about 4 years, but they advertise 3 years. There's a LOT of new content coming.

RE: AV gas for the generator

I only run AV gas in all my small engines. It it good for years. Ethanol gas is only good for a few months. non ethanol gas only good for a couple of years. AV gas is expensive, but after paying for snow blower repair ever two years at $75 each time to repair seals, AV gas is so much cheaper

RE: Camping experiences

oh the stories... taking a swing at the the campground owner... of the couple that had a physical fight so bad she had physical bruises, but the whole story so questionable, both are permanently banned, or the swinger that quite literally fell into a fire pit in an attempt to impress someone, not sure who, that he had to be yanked from the fire and put out.

2021 Feb Cruise Rescheduled to 2022

At least it's completely paid for ... I said I would never ever go on another cruise. Current wife really wanted one, and found one that made me say yes. This may be closer to retirement, and we may have our 5th wheel by then.

RE: Rivian 1/2 ton high temp, grade test. Good read/video

hook up my travel trailer, tow it from MI to FL and see who gets there first. Not permitted to set up charging stations ahead of time. I wouldn't be surprised to see the electric take a week to show up.

RE: Wine Refrigerator; Not RV related

we had a brand new one that stopped within 24 hours of startup. Manufacturer admitted they had a problem and sent us a check. I bought a different brand on sale at Lowes and haven't looked back

RE: OTR Mobile - GRRRR

You would have really hated life 22 years ago, before the internet went WIFI. My first use of remote computing, 75 baud acoustic coupler :) I couldn't get a straight story out of AT&T on directly contracting with them. Three different reps, three different plans/costs. I get the unlimited isn't truly unlimited. So far, haven't seen slow downs, even during heavy use months. Problem with T-Mobile, getting too many cell resets.

OTR Mobile - GRRRR

I "was" a fan of OTR Mobile. for $60, seemingly uncapped data and speed on AT&T network was IMO affordable. Back in April they did a forced change to T-Mobile AND raised the price to $70. Service has been less than stellar. Now they are doing another forced change back to AT&T. Price now going up to $90 per month. Working from home (Covid), this has been a savior to allowing me to be virtually anywhere, but a 50% increase in approximately 6 months! I've looked at other solutions, and they all seem to be even more expensive.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Going to take a LOT of electricity to charge those trucks. Look at CA with their blackouts. Batteries don't charge so well during blackouts.
