RE: Stinky dog

If it's a skunk-like smell then it's the anal glands. As stated, they may occasionally need to be expressed. It happens to our ESPs sometimes if they get really stressed or constipated.

RE: Our Prayers to Our Canadian brothers

Please also remember to say prayers for the two soldiers and their families who were purposely struck by a vehicle in Quebec, one of whom was killed.

RE: vet bill

Jake cost us about a grand a few weeks back when he had the swollen throat issue. Still don't know what caused it, but he's fine now. Our bloodhound cost us THOUSANDS with everything he did! But ya love 'em any way.

RE: Travel during the Fall on the East Coast

Tornadoes are very rare, not really something to worry about. I'm not trying to cause you undo concern, but t-storms up here can be something to be reckoned with. This time of year they are less common but and fall tornadoes are rare, but there was one a week or so again in western MA The problem we have up here is we can't always see them coming because they are hidden in rain walls and such, therefore sometimes there is no warning. Some of the "cool thunderstorms" contain microbursts and straight-line winds, which do similar damage to tornadoes. These also come without warning. In short, most of the time you'll be OK in your rig but if the cg says take shelter inside the building then do so. More often than not it's not necessary but the weather here is extremely unpredictable and sometimes these things spring up out of seemingly nowhere.

RE: just hard to get a RV dealer to take your money

Why would you want to give this dealer your money? The minute they said "give me" before they'd turn anything on I would have been out the door. You don't give a car dealer any money before you turn the key-why would an RV be any different? They are playing with your emotion and hoping you'll let your heart overrule your head. RUN.

RE: Question for the planners?

Yes, we push on, usually because we have no choice. If we go through high traffic areas such as DC we plan accordingly and cut down the miles for the day. Regrettably "rigid schedule" is our middle name!

RE: Travel during the Fall on the East Coast

If you can do it, start in Maine about the middle of August, then follow the color change southward. Take your time, enjoy the small unique wineries, and take lots of pictures! Good advice except you'll have to plan on spending at least a couple of weeks there until the leaves really start to turn. Today it's going to be in the 70s with heavy rain. Last Saturday it was 45 and raining in the a.m. then 50ish and damp in the p.m. Sunday was bright sunshine and 60. Monday & Tuesday were partly sunny and 80. In other words, take your pick. Oh, and we had hard frosts both Saturday and Sunday a.m. Weather, like the leaves, is hard to predict. Many of the campgrounds do close Columbus Day weekend but one of the most overlooked and beautiful places for foliage is the Cape. Some of the campgrounds there stay open until the end of October and there's 1 or 2 that stay open year round.

RE: Women purchasing RV's

I assume this is not a good time to mention anything about pregnant in the summer and barefoot in the winter, is it? Ummm, no. :B

RE: Women purchasing RV's

So my advise to you...and I hate to even say it, is: Bring a Man with you when shopping. Seriously? So, as women, we can help the neanderthals continue their bigotry? Not on your life. That comment is incomprehensible coming from a woman. Why am I starting to smell a rat here?

RE: Finding a campground

I've used both RVNet and RV Park Reviews. TripAdvisor also has campground listings. I always throw out at least one glowing review and one bad review. I also look at what people complain about-is it they charge 50 cents for a shower or is it the fact the cg is located right next to train tracks? Raw number ratings don't tell the whole story-try to find comments and analyze them for yourself.

RE: Stuff to do while camping.

Sightsee, explore history, play golf or something, go to the ocean, museums, amusement parks, zoos, etc. Think back to when you first met-what did you do then? (Keep it clean!)

RE: Yelp no longer a reliable source of information

I don't use Yelp since they admitted that many of the posts are fake. I use TripAdvisor and while I don't always agree with the reviews I find they have a fairly high accuracy rate.

RE: Redneck Engineer Exam

I think Crowe nailed it. Why thank you! Not bad for a New England Yank, eh??? :B

RE: Why did the KOA's close?

Controlling a franchise operation is not easy. McDonalds seems to have it figured out, as I've never seen one that is run down, dirty, or where the food is bad (or worse than you would expect at such a place). Exactly. I do not like McDonalds food but in a pinch if it's what's around and we need to eat, I'll eat there because I know EXACTLY what I am going to get.

RE: Do you level with slides out?

You will get lots of worthless opinions Including yours? Level first, then slides out. If you are not level you stand the chance of binding the slides as they go out. And as others have said it's much easier to move the 5er if necessary.

RE: Redneck Engineer Exam

I can answer some of them. 1. Bigger than the possum thinks. 2. Depends on which one the he's most proud of. 3. Depends on the car, silly. 4. However many it takes. With margin for error, of course. 5. None. The dog will be saved before the wife or kids. 6. Depends on how much land the rusted cars take up (See #2) 7. Zero. 8. 9 months. :B

RE: Hey Mark, I learned two things about sheep ...

After watching Amazing Race being filmed on St. John I discovered how fake it is. The director and cameramen were instructing the runners which direction to come from and telling them what to say. They were probably told to scream.

RE: I'm still convinced these people are crazy.

At the risk of being rude, who cares? You choose your path in life, I choose mine. Not up to you to criticize or throw your holier-than-thou attitude at me or anyone else. We all make decisions for a reason. If I'm happy with what I do and you're happy with what you do that's all that matters.

RE: Walk in tub question

I have one and do not see why it would make the house hard to sell.The walk in tub is expensive,should add to the value of the home. Not necessarily. It all depends on who the "target market" is for the house when it goes up for sale. If it's a family-oriented house, then the walk-in tub is a detriment as it's not feasible for children. If it's a home more for empty nesters it might be an asset. Many renovations don't necessarily add or decrease value but affect saleability. That said, do what you want. It's your house and you should enjoy it the way you like it.

RE: Why did the KOA's close?

Having worked with KOA corporate as well as a number of member campgrounds I have to call BS on this one. You know this group, they never miss a chance to bash KOA whether it's valid or not. My favorite all-time campground is the Bar Harbor Oceanside KOA but I've seen bad KOAs and good KOAs, bad private campgrounds and good private campgrounds. Same with Good Sam. I'd also like to challenge the comments that more campgrounds are pulling out of KOA than joining. Give me real data, not perception.
