RE: Assateague Island

I'd like to plan a trip here next year but struggling to find something that works for us. We would be going with another camper. Neither of us are set up to dry camp and do not want to try to. We would need electric. Sewer would be nice but I have 2 black tanks and can go a minimum of a week without issues. I would also need a pet friendly destination. If I didnt have a home generator I'd think about buying one of the cheaper inverter ones but that would be a waste for one trip. Being a popular destination I figured a lot of people on here have visited and figured this area out already. Anyone have any good locations close by that they can recommend? Thanks in advance. Assateague State Park if you book NOW at https://parkreservations.maryland.gov they have 1 electric only loop. Might get lucky in find a couple of openings. FYI I have 2 reserved sites for 2018 and was told they are planning on opening a 2nd electric loop for 2019 Good Luck Mike

RE: Need CG advice in Eastern Canada- Quebec, PEI and NS

Moderator: This should be moved to the “Canada” section. And how is that done? Cavendish Campground in PEI. Full hookups, walking distance to beach, scenic biking trails, kayaking, we were there last summer and would go back in a heart beat! I would book no later than mid January as best sites get taken. Click on "Notify Moderator" on your opening post and put in a request to move this thread. Mike

RE: Traveling with things on counter

Everything in cabinets and secured areas. Some of the small stuff that we routinely use we will put in the sinks when traveling. One thing that was recommended by another member that has worked well is our grip pad that fits to the bottom of our cutting board. Board fits on top of the propane burners for extra counter space and has never slipped off! Mike

RE: New Englad in the Fall

I don't do full hookup CG's so can't help there. Some places to visit, and popular CGs if I know of any, although I've not used them. Boston (Normandy Farms), Plymouth, Cape Cod (Atlantic Oaks CG), Mystic/Groton (Seaport RV), White Mts/Mt Washington/Franconia Notch area, Kittery and Freeport ME if you like to shop, Campabello (need Visa, it's a long drive), Rockport ME is nice but crowded, Newport RI (Fisherman's Memorial State Park, has full hookups but they are hard to get), Gloucester, Newburyport, Kennebunkport/Old Orchard Beach/Cape Elizabeth, Mt Desert Island/Acadia, Grand Island/Lake Champlain/Ft Ticonderoga, Ben & Jerry's, Cabot Creamery, Adirondacks/Lake Placid, Niagara, Letchworth, Thousand islands. Enough to make a loop. Thanks...your help is much appreciated. If your touring lower New England Fishermans Memorial is the way to go. If your into biking you can ride your bike from your campsite to the ferry which is down the street and go to scenic Block Island and spend a day riding, shopping and taking in the scenery! Lots of good eats at the local pubs too! Fishermans is also a easy day trip to Mystic CT and the Newport Mansions! As Padlin mentioned, I would book no later than mid January as place is very sought after. Mike

RE: Quebec City & Montreal

Thanks everyone for responding. We do not speak any french, I'm going to guess that the campgrounds in QC speak both languages?? I think we can make do but was wondering if anything we should be made aware of. Any campgrounds with the best access to the Metro in Montreal and the Red Busses in Quebec City? I do plan on starting my research on this after the holidays. Thanks again for everyone's help Mike

Quebec City & Montreal

Hello everyone, I'm in the beginning stages of planning a possible 2 week trip next Aug. Part of this trip would be a stop at Quebec City and then to Montreal. How many days should I allow for each city? What are the highlights or recommendations to see for both city's? Any Info would be appreciated Thanks, Mike

RE: New Hampshire suggestions

If you have kids they will love Moosehillock! also check into Danforth Bay, Woodstock KOA and Fransted Family Campground, The last two campgrounds are more centrally located to everything. Best to read the reviews http://www.rvparkreviews.com Couple of things that I see that did not see get mentioned that are fun day trips. Cog Railway up MT Washington! $$$ though Cannon MT Tram in Franconia!, get to walk easy rim trail on top of MT with spectacular views!

RE: Trip Advisor

The complainer who has only made a few & each one not happy about the CG, is not worth paying much attention to. Agreed, but there are reviewers that have a long history which are "consistent" with either posting low or always high and there is value in those type of reviews. Mike

RE: End of the year wrap up... So how was 2017?

Every April my boys tag with me for our yearly camping/fishing trip here in CT. May & June was no camping with work around the house and we had to cancel one trip the MD this June because of problems with my Tacoma Hitch and a graduation. Our August big trip was a 2+ week trip to PEI, Nova Scotia and Bay of Fundy National Park in New Brunswick for our 30th. (Were still relatively young ) Did a July trip to PA, Knoebels and NY, Letchworth state park. We did a September trip to Cape Cod at Atlantic Oaks. Went again to PA for Columbus day weekend and visited the Amish, stayed at Flory's Mike

RE: Can of worms

I agree just looking at the OP post at face value. looks like it might be a wiring issue. Doing retro jobs are higher risk vs a direct install, requires a higher skill level that includes, diagnosing, abstracting and implementing. Mike

RE: Well, so much for waiting to winterize....

Winterized a couple of weeks ago. Now is the time to start thinking about trips for next year. So far have a local camping/fishing trip in CT planned for April. July were returning to Knobels in PA. Columbus day weekend we have a W/E site booked at assateague state park, MD In the works for next year, 1000 island NP in Ontario & Montreal. Still working on other ideas! Mike Mike, You will LOVE Thousand Islands area! We did it twice a few years ago. Visit Hardt Castle and Singer Castle by boat. Gananoque is a beautiful little town. Also did Montreal and Ottawa last year! Both outstanding visits! Stayed at a Regional Park near Ottawa, huge private sites and not expensive. Stayed at a KOA near Montreal. Typical KOA but out in the country about 12 miles from the city and very clean! Plus the exchange rate will pay you back a lot! ENJOY! Thanks for the tips, were looking forward to the trip! We plan on taking our kayaks on this trip. I'm have a tough time researching where or how popular kayaking is at 1000 island NP. Do you have any info or observations? Thanks, Mike

RE: Well, so much for waiting to winterize....

Thats extending the season nicely, how about some pics of the exterior showing the rig and park your in. Daryll Sure...... https://i.imgur.com/mmloiYyl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/wQyezevl.jpg Not very crowded. https://i.imgur.com/deIYDL1l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/moy7DPel.jpg Hey Ralph, that's the kind of fall camping I love but have missed the past two yrs. Seems the real fall weather has bypassed us up here in New England... peddle to the metal with my A/C on both my sept & October trips the past few yrs. Mike

RE: Dogs in RV parks

We've been camping for over 32 years. Tents, a pop-up, and 2 hybrid trailers. We've boondocked, stayed in state parks, rustic RV parks, fancy RV parks, and COEs. it's pretty rare to encounter out of control barking dogs. Campers with dog are generally pretty respectful and also really like it when you ask about their dogs. It's far more common to hear someone else's music blaring because they want everyone to know what genre they like. It's far more common for the guy with the F350 to think it's a good idea to start his diesel at 4 am and let it run for an hour. It's far more common for the neighbor's kids to be out of control and running through your campsite dumping your chairs over and pulling your plug out of the pedestal. I will never understand the American people's fascination with dogs :h Umm, how is this just an American fascination? Sounds like I should worry less about the dog and more about the other end of the leash! LOL Bingo! We have come across some occasional yapping dogs but nothing over the top or where it has affected our enjoyment camping. What has affected our enjoyment camping? you guessed it. Inconsiderate People!! Mike

RE: Hybrids must be hibernating

Yeah I tried talking DW into 1 last trip 2 weeks ago, said no ----- way! Ended up closing it down and winterizing it. Next camping trip planned, 4-18 :C Mike
mdcamping 11/09/17 07:40am Hybrid Travel Trailers

You live in the country? Get a cat. Or two. Seriously. Several of our neighbors have cats that roam outside. We haven't had mice in our garage for some time now. X2 Get the right cat and you will never have problems. As mentioned earlier, get a barn cat preferably female. Males are not as motivated. Mike

RE: Do you use your bathroom? If not, what do you use it for?

19 yrs camping with two 20' trailers and we have hardly ever used our rv shower, its just to small so we use the tub for storage. At this point in our lives we camp based on value & experience and not material. Mike

RE: 2 questions about using the pink stuff

If a second person is near by, you can get help flushing out the city water connection, I have had either my dw, kids, or neighbor bump the water pump power switch while I push the city water check valve in. 2 people, 1 minute total time. Works well Mike
