RE: View Solar Eclipse

I live and work along rt 13 a few miles from the center line, the media has spun such a hype web about food and gas shortage, and traffic lines beeing miles long it must have scared everyone off, Marion IL looks like a ghost town. The campgrounds are full but the local business that really stocked up and planed for armageddon are going to lose lots of money. another star for the media.

RE: KOA

We stay every now and then, but it is when we are traveling in the car and not with the camper, we " NEVER " stay in a hotel/motel yuk.... we take our sleeping bags and stay in the camping cabins in a KOA. back in 2002 we took our kids on a 32 day outwest loop, 11,500 miles, taking the camper was out of the question for the time and miles we needed to cover. we stayed in KOA cabins every night except for Yellowstone, Mount Rainier, Yosemite, and Grand Canyon, It worked well for us, they always had a pool, and my wife could wash laundry at night after the kids were in bed, while I checked over the car.

OK today I am going to spread out this pile of dirt that has been infront of the old barn for 5 years growing weeds " wife says it's got to go" first I need to hook up the bushog and mow down the place I am spreading it out...on pre use inspection found blade loose on bushog, so I need the loader tractor to pick up the bushog to fix the blade. loader won't start...low battery..:R.go to the other barn get the charger....won't charge....find a loose wire on the charger..:(..fix that...get the loader started....needs fluid for the hydrolics to work..go to the other barn for fluid...OK...lift the bushog to fix blade...bolt stripped...go to other barn for grinder...grind off old bolt replace with new...hook up bushog and mow around dirt pile... park tractor and bushog and go get loader to spread out dirt....won't stay running now ! ! ! ! ! :M start trouble shooting the fuel system, end up pulling off the carb and finding a screen stoped up....back together and running better than ever...about 30 min to spread out the dirt... finish mowing around the old barn and put up the equipment, wife gets home from a wedding shower and the store about 2pm....WOW that looks really good what eles did you do today or did that take all day.....:S Now...add in the time it takes to find every single thing I put down and you know how long this can take.

RE: Turkey Run state park Indiana

We were there a couple weeks ago for 5 days, we kayaked the river and the grandkids floated it, we hiked maybe half the trails, went to Mansfield. Bridgton, and Rockville, we had never been without the festival going on " it is alot different " in a good way. It is a really nice park and we will go back.

RE: Outdoor kitchen question

The outdoor kitchen was on the list of must haves for our new TT, we use it every time we cook, I am usually grilling on a small gas grill or cooking over the fire, and my wife is doing green beans or potatos on the outside stove, we keep drinks in the outside fridge it saves alot of trips inside, when we are done I set the grill inside close the door and we are done, I also have a griddle that covers both burners on the stove and it is perfect for pancakes or french toast, bacon, ham, burgers, it is perfect for bear country and according to rangers in SMNP the outside kitchen is considered inside storage the same as beeing in the camper. pro number one is the inside of the camper never gets splatered with grease or gets messy.

RE: Towing into the Wind

Wind is my biggest factor for MPG, tail or no wind in the hills 13.4 mpg....semi strong head wind in the hills it will drop to 10.3 to 11 mpg, but I need to watch my EGT's they can hover around 1,150* up a good grade with a head wind.

RE: NE Ohio to Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg TN

I don't think anyone has said Maggie Valley yet, it is a nice break from the throngs of people with just enough town to have some good eating and you are on the south east side of the park, a side less visited, we just spent 6 days at Cataloochee CG (no hook ups and very narrow windy gravel road). we usually stay in the park or mile high CG, we go for the hiking and cool weather and not the people, and noise. out of the 31 times we have been in the smokies we still like it other than PF and GB, we will hit the chocolate factory in GB to get our treats, and a couple outdoor stores looking for something er other and then head into the park never to see town again, If I had to pick a favorite NP CG it would be smokemont I guess, as it is close to the BRP and we always explore the south 60 miles or so each time we go down.

RE: FCA Receives Certification for EcoDiesel

As mentioned above about $60 to 65 using full synthetic T6. 10.5 quarts. I do the same 15k interval and a fuel filter every other oil change. I could have sworn the Ecodiesel was 10k last I checked? If it is 15k now then that is even better for when I get one in the new Wrangler. I also don't do synthetic. No need for it in the temps I live in. It never even gets below 20F here so it would just be a waste of money for me. I think when I traid the wifes outback for an ecododge, I don't know why anybody would go by what Vern has done...........I mean come on only 340k miles and half of them towing out of a little 3.0 diesel, what a failure.

RE: How far are you willing to travel?

On the first leg whether it be an evening drive or morning drive we go until we "need" to stop driving. as of the last few years we will leave in the evening of our last work day and drive 4-5 hours ( gets a good jump on the miles between us and the destination ) then we slow down a bit, 8 hours is a good number to try to hit for me on a driving day. when we retire the distance will be to the next place that looks nice to camp, I am looking forward to that time.

RE: Ram truck forum

My truck is the 1st gen at the top of the cummins forum home page,...... with that said the guys on TDR are usually a bit older and you miss all the facebook like banter.
