I'm surprised you left out what's perhaps his most famous line of all, and which led to the establishment of the annual contest named in honor of the venerable author :

"It was a dark and stormy night..."

For all his literary sins, I think that Bulwer-Lytton did not much indulge in pathetic fallacy, which is the attribution of human traits/feelings to nonhuman creatures or objects.

I think the master of that form is Walt Disney....well, and PETA!

Technically I believe you're technically correct, Francesca, technically speaking. Aw shucks! you're right! There is no indication in the stormy night setting that the trees nor the rain nor the dark of night are echoing, reflecting, enhancing or otherwise making a sales pitch for the passions of young maidens and masters. My bad!

I smell a winner...

Will you make an official protest if I enter that line in this year's contest, Jack?

Francesca, a nickel's worth of wind ain't worth a dime in most quarters but maybe I've got what it takes?

Sounds like a pretty good descriptor of the actual prize, and here I quote:
Quote:
Finally, in keeping with the gravitas, high seriousness, and general bignitude of the contest, the grand prize winner will receive … a pittance.
I'm on it- I expect a cut when you win!

Your Agent

P.S.

Didja notice that I purplefied the Contest Entry quote? Looks even better in its proper color, don't you think?

I have a rubber chicken by that name, Floyd. Purely a cowinkidink. As you might surmise, I failed literary devices and conceits, so it may come as a shock that I didn't go on to teach. Just kidding, hahaha. I loved ALL my teachers except maybe the handful that said I would come to a bad end.

Hercules Tire now makes a 75 mph rated trailer tire. Actually two of them! One is called Hercules Ironman ST-SVP. The other is Hercules Power STR. The "L" at the end of the tire size (example: ST205/75R14/6 100/96L) is the speed rating code. Not sure if all sizes of the STR are L rated, but I pulled up the ST-SVP specs and all sizes were rated L. This might help folks who want to maintain speed a little faster than 65 on the highways.

Even with the upgrade in speed rating anyone driving less than the 75MPH rating will have a reasonable cushion. When it comes to trailer tires that is a big benefit.

Goodyear Marathons can also run at 75 MPH, with increased air pressure, based on their Goodyear Product Service Bulletin #2014-01 as discussed in post 39 of this thread. Here is a link to the Product Service Bulletin https://www.tirerack.com/images/tire...plications.pdf Here is the recommended inflation table: http://www.goodyearrvtires.com/pdfs/rv_inflation.pdf

I have Goodyear Marathon ST225/75R15 tires on a 17' Casita weighing 3600# with 400# tongue weight. Therefore, each tire is supporting 1600# and needs to be inflated to 30# based on the inflation table. Therefore, by inflating to 40# will allow for 75 MPH speeds on my setup based on the PSB and Inflation Table.

If only engineering was so precise that these numbers were guaranteed. But based on this information, I feel running my setup at speeds between 65 mph and 75 mph is within specifications of my Goodyear Marathons tires inflated to 65 PSI. And down here on the Florida Interstate Highways, I am successfully testing the above 65 MPH PSB.

65+ MPH... I'm I correct in guessing that: a) You are in a hurry, b) There is nothing to see along the way and c) MPG's are of no concern.


Meaning all of the above... LOL

a) Often I am. Come on retirement.
b) Not usually the case, but not enough time to see everything. Come on retirement.
c) MPG's do not differ enough to worry with my big F-350 diesel. I am much more cognizant with the Pilot though.
d) I wish. Come on retirement.

Speed Rating

Bought a new set of Carlisle RH tires yesterday . The tires have an N speed rating (87 MPH)
Carlisle recommends a maximum towing speed of 60 MPH with their RH tires.
60 MPH sounds just right to this old retired fellow . Heading out West in a couple weeks and I don't want to miss seeing the Rockie Mountains cause I was driving too fast.
