RE: would you sacrifice drivability for more livability?

would you sacrifice drivability for more livability? For me it would depend on the degree of sacrifice as well as the duration of livability. If I were a fulltimer or the type to stay at campgrounds for extended periods of time, my preference would be livability over drivability. Fulltiming is not in my future, as far as I can foresee, and I don't tend to stay in any one campground more than few days at a time, therefore, I'm willing to sacrifice some conveniences in favor of drivability.

RE: Would you want to hear from the new owners of your old rv?

Eleven years later? I don't think so.

RE: fuel type

They done away with the steam power vehicles a couple yrs ago I think, before that we only had dog sleds and some pulled by reindeer but I think we come a long way since then, seen a car go by the other day and it wasn't pulled by horse's any more. LOL!! Edited to add: I'm not laughing at the OP. I wondered if the OP was asking about CNG availability, or if one type of gas was more readily available than others. No such thing as a dumb question. The above quoted response was just unexpected and tickled me.

RE: Help a newbie choose

So far, I think all of the Road Treks and Pleasure Ways I've seen in photos had either a sofa(bed) cross wise near the back, or had a night stand fixture between twin beds. ---- snip ---- I have (havent tried to sell it yet) an '03 PW Excel TD. TD = The Pleasure-way double couch model. The upper 2-drawer nightstand is removable/portable in order to make the double couches into queen (?) size bed. I kept mine between the driver and passenger seats when stopped for any length of time. I'm thinking the lower section, which allows access to the back storage area, could be removed relatively easily. However, it would be a permanent removal.

I know I've joined the right forum this time. Again thank-you all.:B Bill Bill started a new thread to post the above. Thought I should paste it here for all ya'll.

RE: Single traveler

Are you male or female? Makes a bit of a difference. Oh? How so? Solo, senior, woman RVer here. No problems in decades of backpacking and RVing. Women may be more vulnerable because the mutants tend not to harrass their own gender given the choice. I trust my intuition. It hasn't failed me yet. RVing solo? The best!!

RE: Wife drive's the Freightliner

At least your wife is willing to try. Mine does not even want to try on my pickup. X2 I once ask her what if something happen to me while on vacation. She said something like " I'd sell it and fly back home " :E Bwaahahahaha!!

RE: What is boondocking?

Dottie, This is what Mello Mike, one of the moderators on this site, wrote: "This subject is often brought up so I thought we'd put our collective heads together for the sake of newbies and others who are curious what these terms mean. This will be posted as a permanent thread at the top of this forum. Dry Camping: Means no utility hook ups such as water, electricity, sewer, cable TV or telephone and may or may not require a fee. Can either be in a city, state, or federal campground, a sporting venue or a parking lot. Overnighting: Stopping at a Rest Stop, Flying J's or WALMART overnight to catch a few winks. Boondocking: Means wilderness or primitive camping out in the "boondocks." Natural beauty with little or no (noisy) neighbors. This type of camping (usually in Public Lands like State, BLM, and National Forests) is usually FREE. Just find a place and park. Finally, you always dry camp when you boondock, but you don't always boondock when you dry camp."

RE: Interstate Bathroom....er....etiquette

It's impossible to answer rhetorical questions. Too many variables to consider.

RE: What is boondocking and dry camping?

The term boondocks is an American English term for a remote, usually brushy rural area; or to a remote city or town that is considered unsophisticated. Boondocking - Present participle of boondock.

RE: Camping in the rain

---snip--- Has anyone camped in the pouring rain on purpose? ?? ---snip--- Oh yeah! I love camping in the rain, whether (no pun intended) it be for a weekend (I'm still working) or just for the day. Love the sound, the quality of air, and the visual contrasts created by rain soaked earth and trees against a darkened sky. But, Lo is me. Living in San Diego means rain is infrequent and this past winter it's been almost non-existent. I fear it will be a long drought in California,and an even longer time before we see any serious rain here. Sometimes I miss rain so much I scroll over to Eugene, Oregon's animated weather report on my iPhone and stare at their rain! Apologies if the above comments are insensitive to any folks directly or indirectly related to the disaster in Oso, Washington. My thoughts are with you.

RE: Barbecue + beer: Is it ok in every RV camp ?

California State Parks: THE POSSESSION AND CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES ARE PROHIBITED IN ALL DAY USE. Alcohol is only allowed in your overnight camp site and you may consume alcohol from a vessel. Please designate drivers both on the road and on your boat. Law Enforcment Rangers arrest an average of 50 visitors a year for drunk driving. Please be smart and safe. http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=23930

RE: Other single female full-timers?

The national umbrella organization, RVingWomen dot com, has a Fulltimers chapter, as well as Solo Women's chapter, and US regional chapters Many women traveling solo and fulltiming solo don't tend to publicize due the number of freaks out there, actually, everywhere.
