Seresto vs. Scalibor flea/tick collars

Any thoughts on the above flea/tick collars on their effectiveness, safety, and whether or not they can be used with Revolution? The Revolution works great on everything but ticks and the dogs are only getting the ticks on their heads and ears. Deathly afraid of giving them too much for protection at once but also afraid of Lyme's etc. Comments appreciated.

RE: Altitude sickness...

You need to go to a lower elevation NOW to settle out. Sounds like you are compounding the situation by staying there. Your symptoms are that of severe dehydration (part of altitude sickness) which can cause organ failure. If you start experiencing HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema) you can be dead within hours. If you are too tired to drive, have someone take you down to 5K feet or so then go back and acclimate slowly.

RE: A very tragic weekend

So sorry to hear. My SIL just suddenly lot one of her show labs (3 1/2 years old) under similar circumstances to what Dr. Doug described. Nothing can prepare you for that kind of shock. Sending prayers you way.

Update on House Search

A lot has changed since I last posted about our house search. Three key decisions have been reached. VERY long story short, we are not moving over the border to NH as we thought we would. Too many reasons to mention. Decision #2 is no RV for a while. After spending the weekend in a cabin at the Bar Harbor KOA we decided on decision #3-purchasing a 2nd home on a lake in Maine. Let's just say some epiphanies were reached and a nice weekend away allowed for clearer heads to finally make some rational decisions. We've started the hunt for the lake house, have looked at a few but haven't found one that fits all we want. We are going to have to make concessions and just have to decide what our priorities are. Found what is close the perfect cabin but it's 75 steps DOWN to the lake and our knees aren't getting any younger! Thanks for everyone who offered advice or just said "I know how you feel". Will let y'all know when we find our little retreat.

How do you fix an over-fertilized lawn?

Hubby fertilized the lawn a few weeks ago but it looks like the spreader may have malfunctioned and we have brown stripes that look like the lawn has been burned. There is an abundance of fertilizer on the ground as compared to the green parts of the lawn. We haven't had a lot of rain and we are under severe water restrictions. Thoughts?

RE: Terre Haute KOA Cancellation Policy

I just think it's unfair to get charged 2 nights when I believe they'll fill my spot with no issues over the fourth holiday..... Then why did you agree to it? And there's no guarantee the spot will get filled. You could put it in dispute with your credit card company but I think you'll be hard-pressed to win. Just as an FYI, the Bar Harbor KOA website has similar wording as above: If you are unable to join us the cancellation policy for RV and Tent sites, cancellations must be made 48 hours in advance and 7 days in advance for all Accommodations such as Cabins, Airstreams and Eco Yurts. There maybe additional requirements for groups, holiday, or special hot deals. If cancellation meets advance notice requirements the deposit will be returned less a $10.00 processing fee. KOA does not hide their policies. Some of you really need to put yourself in the shoes of the business owner. It's a BUSINESS, not a charity and I fail to comprehend how so many don't understand that. It's up to the consumer to look into all policies, rules and regulations prior.

RE: What was your best Alaska Tour Saver experience?

If they cover the Alaska Sealife Center, the Alaska Native American Heritage Center, the Reindeer farm and/or the Musk Ox farm I'd visit them. Even without a discount they are well worth it.

RE: Terre Haute KOA Cancellation Policy

While I hate to waste $$ truthfully the penalty is negligible in the scheme of my overall camping budget. Bingo. I feel the same way about toll, but that's a whole 'nuther subject!

RE: Terre Haute KOA Cancellation Policy

Many campgrounds have different policies for holidays vs. non-holiday. It's best to read all policies prior and find what you are most comfortable with. It would be nice of more campgrounds had a "if we can re-rent your site" type of policy but that becomes a bookkeeping nightmare at times. It's also a wise business decision from an economic standpoint to ensure steady income flow.

RE: Do fog sprays work

I've had good luck with foggers at home, but am reluctant to use them at a campsite as you can't always control how far they spread. We've had good luck with citronella buckets but purpose ones, not green.

RE: Leaving camper unoccupied - help

+1 All else is speculation, why bother? If it's private most places will just take your money and not care about occupancy. If it's public they also have be concerned about maximizing serving the public and occupancy becomes an issue. While I agree it doesn't change the fact many of us consider the practice disrespectful and gaming the system regardless of its "legality". It's all about fairness not what's allowed.

RE: Northeast Connecticut to Bar Harbor Maine

From NE CT, take I-84 or I-395 to the Mass Pike and then I-495 around (don't go into Rt 128, traffic is always terrible there). You may hit some slowdown at the Hampton tolls, but if you have an EZPass, you'll get through faster. Watch your speed on 95 in Maine when the speed limit drops to 55 around Portland. Major revenue generator for the state. X2. You can take a small chunk off by picking up I290 through Worcester. The lanes are a bit narrow but you should be OK with your set-up. All highways up here are anybody's guess on traffic but late afternoon you should be OK. If you've got the time or want to take a break, hit the Cabela's in Scarborough, ME, at Exit 42.

RE: Decision : to get an older dog or not ?

I can't tell you anything about the breeds you mentioned, but I can say that getting a dog that's already housebroken and/or partially trained can be a lot less stressful. We have 2 Springer spaniels, Jake and Jesse. Jesse was 8 weeks old when we got him and we had to go through the whole housebreak routine. Long story, but Jake was 5 months old when we got him, housebroken and almost completely obedience trained. It was so much easier on everyone. Go adopt an older dog when you are ready. I doubt you will regret it.

RE: Leaving camper unoccupied - help

Guess I'll just let my dogs and kids run through your campsite - that's not against the rules either and so what if it sounds "rude and inconsiderate". X2 Some of us suffer from a different kind of OCD-Obsessive COURTESY Disorder. We believe in respect and a level playing field. I'm having some trouble understanding the double-standards that a lot on here seem to live by. So many have temper tantrums because someone takes too long at the dump station, the boat launch, or leaves a light on at night-all not against the rules. I guess it comes down to the ends justify the means. Just because it's allowed doesn't make it ethical.
