RE: Heading out west - snake precautions.

I hike and camp in snake country with the dogs all the time. Keep your dogs on a 6-7 foot leash (NOT a 25' Flexi!) and don't let them walk where you can't see their feet or stick their noses where you can't see. Snakes hide under things and mostly just want to stay out of your way. Simple precautions: Don't take walks after dark, snakes are generally nocturnal Keep your dog on leash Don't reach, sniff or step where you can't see Don't panic! If you see a snake, walk away. Have fun!

RE: Diatomaceous Earth?

I used to use the brand "Penguin Down Dry Die." Great name. Stuff worked like a charm. It's fairly heavy and falls out of the air easily so if you take normal precautions while spreading it you shouldn't have any problems.

RE: New Family Members

Thanks y'all, for fixing my pictures! The new pooches are a lot of fun and are keeping me busy. Watch this space for more of their adventures. And please cross your fingers for Belle's safe recovery.

New Family Members

We lost our beloved Erkenbrand very unexpectedly in January. Now we've welcomed two lovely new family members from the good folks at Golden Retriever Rescue of Southern Nevada. Amroth is a 6 year old, well-trained, well-loved and lovable male. His only challenge is that he weighed in at about 114 when he came in to rescue and the vet says we should be shooting for about 85 pounds. We're getting there with long walks, tennis balls and a diet. His is not a sob story, except that he came into rescue because his family grew old and feeble and went into care, where they couldn't take him. They loved him enough to find him a new, active family. Belle (short for Belladonna Took) is another story. She's only 14 mos. old and nearly died of peritonitis and starvation caused by ingested baby toys. After 3 weeks in a hospital, we're up to "she might survive." At 45 pounds, she needs to gain all the weight that Amroth needs to lose. I wish we could just transfer it while they're sleeping next to each other. GRRSN.org is paying her medical bills and prescription food costs. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10154051489760441&l=c6e3d75b4b https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10154051489750441&l=b0278f9ed1

RE: Anyone who's up right now go outside and check out the moon!

We had a fabulous, gorgeous view here in Las Vegas NV and stayed up 3 hours watching the whole thing with binocs. Gorgeous.

RE: Battery Replacement Problem

Update: Recently took the rig out for two weekends. I dug out the dvd that came with the brakes and thoroughly reviewed how to set them. All is now great so I'm pretty sure that Bill & Kate had the correct answer. Thanks for your help, everybody! Oh, and I bought a lock for the battery box

Looking for a book

Somewhere out there is road atlas (?) that details high passes to help one plan a route. Can anybody tell me what book this is or was? I didn't see anything like it at Camping World this weekend. I'm sure I've seen one around somewhere...... Any recommendations appreciated. Please feel free to move this post if it's in the wrong place. Thanks!

RE: Looking 4 Tips for Nevada Christmas Truck Camper trip?

Calico is one of my favorite dog-friendly places too. And if you're thinking about Laughlin, I recommend Davis Camp. It's in a nice location right on the river and the people seem nice. It's next door to a cute museum and in a good location for touring the Mojave desert. http://www.mcparks.com/parks/davis-camp/

RE: Looking 4 Tips for Nevada Christmas Truck Camper trip?

If you really want to go to Vegas (or any place that you can't take the dog into for long periods of time), why not find a local doggie day care? provided that your dog is dog friendly and doesn't suffer separation anxiety, it might be an option if you want to do human only activities. There are several doggy daycare places in Vegas. We also have groomers who will let you leave your dog for the day and give him back to you all clean and fluffed! Vegas also has several new dog parks to explore. Although the weather here can be pretty awful, the town is getting to be more dog friendly.

RE: Looking 4 Tips for Nevada Christmas Truck Camper trip?

How deep are the parking spots at Red Rock? Would a 21 foot travel trailer fit? I think a 21 foot would fit into the Red Rock campground ok. It's flat empty desert marked off into campsites. Depending on the time of year it has picnic tables. It's a pretty bare-bones campground.

RE: Breakfast porridge stew

My boss claims you can cook this in a CrockPot. I wonder if that's true?

RE: Looking 4 Tips for Nevada Christmas Truck Camper trip?

Valley of Fire is quite lovely and nice this time of year. Lots of good places to walk your furry friends. It's north of Vegas and the campground with hookups is great for RVs. I don't recommend trying to take them into the other campgrounds there, you might get stuck. Drop me a note if you have specific questions about Valley of Fire. Red Rock is also lovely. There's a nearby "campground" with no hookups, but it's not very "improved." Red Rock is close to Vegas so I recommend one of the Casino campgrounds instead. Casino camping on the Strip can be pricey but there are more affordable ones east of the strip along Boulder HIghway. Mt. Charleston has some nice campgrounds if you have chains and like snow. The Casinos are pretty this time of year, with lots of decorations and free live entertainment wandering the halls. Stay off the gaming floors and out of the stores to have a cheap time! Lots of Sun-Thurs food specials available. North of Vegas the area around Pahranaghat (is that how you spell it?) is beautiful. I like the campground, don't think there are hookups. Can't remember. Makes a nice base for exploring the nature preserves and Area 51. South of Vegas the whole Mojave Preserve is lovely this time of year. I like to use the area around Kelso Depot as my home base. Hope this helps?

Breakfast porridge stew

1.5 C water dash salt (optional, but it makes a difference) .75 C old fashioned oats 2 small or 1 large eating apple, cored & hacked into bite-sized bits (peeling optional) 2 little boxes (.5 C) raisins 1 can peaches in water or lite syrup, drained well .5 tsp cinnamon sugar or brown sugar to taste Put water, apples and salt in a med. saucepan, heat to boiling. Boil apples for about 3 minutes. Add oats and raisins, cook for 5 minutes uncovered, stirring every now and then. Don't let it burn! Set aside uncovered. Stir in peaches and cinnamon while it cools. Serve with sugar or Splenda (Granulated or Brown, but I don't recommend the little packets with this) to taste. Milk or cream on the side. The fruit adds yummy bulk for hearty eaters. You could serve with sausage if you wanted a nice contrast, but there's lots of protein in the oats. (We remove the stems and seeds and feed the apple cores to our dogs. Don't let them have the finished product as the raisins are a Very Bad Idea.)

Recommend Trip Software please

Hi folks I'm looking for trip planning software which allows you to select amenities in the campgrounds displayed. Specifically my travel partner wants to be able to plot campgrounds offering cabins (Kabins). Most of the software I've seen displays campgrounds along your route, but you have to select each one to see whether or not it has cabins. This needs to be computer software, not a phone app; we only have dumbphones, not smart ones. Thanks!
