Hey Adam,

No, I didn’t take it personally at all. My apologies if my reply implicated otherwise.

All the best,

I found this product at Surfaces in Vegas and have been selling it to real estate investors and using it for my investment properties. Please don’t view this as a solicitation, the link is not my company. The product can be bought at the home centers, on-line, or speciality dealers. The product cost is more than laminate, carpet,or ceramic, but you don’t have to buy underlayment, perimeter sealant, no acclimation, and pro labor is .50 sf vs $1.50 sf for laminate. You get the best of vinyl and laminate and its 100% waterproof. Other advantages: Floating, goes over almost any subfloor, install 150 sf per hour, quiet, realistic visual, easy DIY, and you only need a utility knife and straight edge to install. Electricity is not even required. The manufacturer is Metroflor, style name is Konnecto. Also doesn’t scratch like laminate either.

Steve, all the site shows is plank flavors - how about you put some photos up on for free, and let us see what it looks like in one of your homes?? Perhaps closeups, and handling.

There’s a link to an install video here:

It takes forever to load (I have dial-up) so I haven’t watched it yet.

See Tye’s post below. I don’t have cable/dsl due to where I live - way out in the boonies. It’s simply not available.

Let me put it this way, in order to get high-speed internet would entail moving and quadrupling (or more) my house payment. Right now, my total PITI house payment is less than I pay in lot rent in any of the parks I sell homes in. :smiley:

Yeah, I’ll move eventually, but right now keeping expenses low is key to staying out of the rat race.

Not everywhere, Adam; depnds on geography. I pay more than
twice that, after paying several hundred dollars for initial
equipment (have to use an antenna in addition to the inside stuff).
Even so, I’m still so incredibly slow I’d never attempt to view a

Besides, Michael is one of those out-there-in-the-field kinda
guys, so he probably doesn’t spend that many hours a month

I live out in the boonies as well. It’s a 4 mile drive to a little country post office to get mail, and 12 miles into town to stock the pantry. No cable, but the satillite dish doesn’t make Jerry Springer look any stupider, so I got that goin for me.

One thing I have found out over the years is that high speed internet (DSL thru the phone line in my case) has a decided advantage in terms of ROI over slow speed service hands down. I do a lot of my REI research over the net, as my county and the counties around me have put a lot of important info on-line such as the GIS (Geological Information System) which is tied into the county tax records, etc. I can sit at my computer and do things I needed a trip to county seat to accomplish prior.

My guess is since you are currently limited regarding the service that you have, you may not be aware of the benefits of high speed, especially with all the heavy graphics files that contain key info to allow for you taking advantage of information that is not accessible thru dial up.

Satillite delivered high speed internet is available almost anywhere you have a view of the southern sky, so there is no need to move to get HSI. This sounds like a case of “don’t know what you’re missing” as until you have experienced HSI and all of its advantages first hand (and I don’t mean at a friends house) you don’t know what you’re missing.

As I said, the ROI for HSI will blow away anything that dial up can provide. That is, of course, unless the only time you need the internet is when Jerry Springer is away for a commercial.



For those of you sitting on the fence wondering if the MH bootcamp is something of value that you may want to attend, I can personally tell you that there are few experiences where education crosses paths with absolute pure enjoyment the way Tony and Scott’s bootcamp serves it up. Biggest bang for the buck you may ever experience. Even if you don’t go out the next week and buy every park or HM in your county, the education will serve you for years to come. It is that thorough. And you will get to meet some incredible folks as well, no extra charge. (Love you guys, KJ)

Satellite would work for you…no excuses!!! - Posted by Berno

I had AOL dialup until, oh, about 4 months ago. It served me well but my boss offered to foot the DSL tab so I had to get it. It’s pretty nice but not a necessity as Michael said…56k does the job too.

i hope you didn’t take the comment personally or anything i was just saying that high speed internet is so cheap (if you in or near a big city) that it’d be silly to screw w/ dial up but i understand your situation and in that case, dial-up is better than nothing :slight_smile:

You’re probably right, I don’t know what I’m missing. You’re also right that I just don’t use the internet a whole lot - mostly just email, reading articles, etc. Although there have been times when I HAVEN’T done something (download a video or such) simply b/c I’m not patient enough to wait on it.

For now I’m good w/ what I have, but hadn’t thought of satellite. I’ll have to look into it.

Gotta run for now, though. Sally Jesse is back on . . . then Jerry Springer is up!


Wow, thanks Killer Joe - Posted by Tony Colella

Those are kind words about the boot camp.

Thank you.
