RE: Massachusetts

It's actually 60mi from Sandwich to P-Town...... Silly me! I saw the "1 hour 12 mins" on Mapquest and translated that in my foggy brain to 112 miles! Yup, it's 60 miles indeed. BUT during peak season it will feel like 112! :B

RE: What's her name to be

I like Star after the Star Spangled Banner-goes with the kennel name. Not really diggin' either of your choices, but I'd choose Nike.

RE: Massachusetts

I know lots of people think Normandy Farms is a great campground but I think is is a bit of a travel to the places the OP would like to visit, Boston, Plymouth, and Cape Cod. Maybe a few days in Boston Plymouth area then a few days on the Cape would allow more seeing and an hour or two less driving. Just my thought .... And a good thought it is. It's 112 miles from Sandwich at the beginning of the Cape to Provincetown, at the end of the Cape. Something at the "elbow" as someone suggested is a great idea for Cape exploration. For Boston Minuteman KOA and Winter Island are probably better than Normandy Farms but Normandy isn't a bad options. Plimouth Plantation is well worth the visit. The rock is just a rock, really.

RE: Here,s a good one for you

I am hypersensitive to sound but take the onus upon myself to deal with it. Certain harmonics, repetitive sounds, or sounds that vary in modulation are enough to put me over the edge. Can't take whistling or humming, either. It actually stems from when I was severely hypoglycemic-noise intolerance is a symptom. So I find my own white noise, use ear plugs, or just do my best to ignore. It is VERY tough sometimes but I recognize I am the one with the problem.

RE: RIP: What dogs teach us

So true. I can't imagine a life without dogs, or people who aren't dog people. Very sorry for your loss.

I grew up with a Triple E-unfortunately it was my dad's foot! :B

A Christmas Poem

The outside lights were all hung with great care, Despite us nearly freezing in the cold, frosty air; The tree is still nestled in it's snug storage place, Behind the furnace where there's just enough space; It waits to be decorated as there is one who's not here, He's returning from school, a little later this year; We'll imbibe in some spirits while it gets decorated, Surely, no doubt, at least I'LL be lubricated! Lucky for me from my couch I did shop, Before my fingers wore out I decided to stop; Alas, poor hubby, for my stuff he must go, To store after store, how he hates it so; But I must have my jammies, my socks and a sweater, That's all I need, for gifts there are no better; Except for the company of family and friends, And sharing the joy that we hope never ends; So to all of you during this wonderful season; Let's all remember it does have a reason.

RE: Merry Christmas

When I was really young we celebrated Christmas the old-fashioned German way-Santa brought the tree. When we got a little older we'd take a trek into Boston to get our tree. My dad was, umm, cheap, and would always go at the last minute to get a bargain. Let's just say some of our trees were a bit Charlie Brownish! We use a fake tree because of allergies to the pine scent, but boy do I miss that tradition, especially since my son is now about to turn 23. Maybe when the grandkids come around we'll start it again. Peace be with all of you this holiday season whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza or any holiday in between. May you all find not only the goodness in others but in yourself.

RE: TN to Boston

Time to spare? Go by air. Better yet, take a jet. X2!

RE: TN to Boston

Pilot, Andover is in my neck of the woods. It can be a difficult trip (most east coast travel is) but if your timing and the travel Gods are good it's not a big deal. We do the 287/87/84/90/495 route when we go back and forth to the south. Best bet is take I90 to 495N. Depending on what part of Andover she lives in, you either exit directly off 495 or take 495 to 93. Easiest access campground is probably the KOA in Littleton, MA. It's near 495 and at non-peak hours it's about a 30 minute run straight up the highway. From Andover it's a straight shot down I93 into Boston, but if you don't want to drive in the city you can take the train/MBTA in.

RE: TN to Boston

1. Where in Boston? 2. Are you taking mh/trailer? 3. Avoid 290 if you are towing or have MH. Cuts right through Worcester, it's somewhat narrow and winding, saves very little in tolls or time. 4. 84 doesn't "turn into" I90. It ends at I90. You can take I90 (Mass Pike) straight into Boston from there, but your ultimate destination will help decide what's the best route. 5. Get an EZ pass. It will save time and money as the tolls are discounted. We are now starting to go to a completely electronic system. 6. Decide if the extra fuel consumption and time is more valuable than paying tolls.

RE: Think I messed up

So it is looking like I am at plan "B", start looking for another truck. Sorry the dealer wouldn't give, but look at the bright side-you've got a GREAT excuse to get a bigger truck! :B There's probably a bunch of VERY jealous guys on here! Hopefully others will learn from you experience.

RE: Think I messed up

I hate to point this out but it drives me crazy. Many states have a "right of Rescission" law but it only applies when someone comes to your home and the contract is entered into there. True, but any time we've bought a vehicle the dealer has given us this right.

RE: Nature can be cruel !

What's cruel about it? The hawk has to eat. The turtle was food. End of story.

RE: Think I messed up

When did you buy the trailer? Most states have 48-72 hour "Right of Recission" laws. That equates to two - three business days where you may be able to get your money back. Although you should have checked the weight rating on the truck prior to your visiting the RV dealership, I would contact the dealership manager and explain (politely, at least at first) you feel that the misinformation the salesperson gave you puts you and your family at great risk as well as others on the road. There's always the tactic of threats, i.e. going to the AG's office, BBB, etc., but if you start out polite you might be surprised.

RE: Skunks under the house

Found this website: http://www.wikihow.com/Get-Rid-of-Skunks Trapping and releasing wildlife without a permit is illegal in many states, carries stiff fines, can be dangerous to you and often just relocates the problem. If the above website doesn't help, you might want to find a pest control company that might be able to help you.

RE: New Hampshire and Vermont Recommendations

Danforth Bay is actually in Freedom, NH, but near Ossipee. Great campground. Gives you access to White Mountains and N. Conway area.

RE: Most over rated attractions

Many people set too high an expectation and just set themselves up for disappointment. I even see it here-people want the "perfect" RV, ask to help them plan the "perfect" vacation, etc. I personally don't see a draw to LA, but if you are into theater and shopping, NYC could be a blast. Just like beauty, fun is in the eye of the traveler.

RE: Who buys an RV from an RV show?

We also bought one at a show, but not the floor model. Do your research first, then go. If you don't like the price or aren't quite ready to commit, don't worry-if you go within a few weeks of the show they will often honor the show price.
