My Biggest issue with fumes... I have crohnes disease and Diesel fumes tend to cramp me up and send me scurrying to the head. It's gotten better over the years.. but prolonged exposure can really do a number on me

Re: anchorage etiquette

It's interesting to hear people say they NEED a generator to run all the things they NEED.
Before spending $1500 on a generator to run an air conditioner, why not spend $300 on high CFM fans, LED lighting and a windscoop and then sleep naked on top of the sheets?

Yeah, i know, I know, there's all that sticky humidity and still air and... your grandparents didn't have air conditioning- are you saying they really were right, they were tougher than you whippersnappers?

BTW, I am surprised this thread hasn't ended up in off-topic yet.

They didn't have polio vaccine either, but would have taken it in a heartbeat had it existed. Just like air conditioning.

I haven't seen it wander off the OP much at all. Etiquette of generators in crowded places. Discussing whether one needs one at all seems fair game.

Re: anchorage etiquette

Honestly, you're body can acclimate to the heat, just as it does to the chill of winter (maybe not freezing weather.. but after a few weeks, does well in colder temps) you just need to be around and in it all the time.

I will admit, that being 6 foot and 170 pounds is a big help too

Re: anchorage etiquette

Only if you can hear the first salvo over your generator, and/or manage to drag your ass away from the tv and out of your air conditioned cabin.

Yeah, I like the odds.
