RE: Are there a lot of jobs

If you are not working then you don't want to work. Jobs are plentiful. That pretty much sums up PA as well. The company I drive for is REALLY hurting for GOOD drivers, as are almost all bus companies and trucking firms. I could work 7 days a week if i wanted, but if that didn't kill me, the DW would.......... :E

Recommendations for CG in Enid, OK Area

I would like to hear from anyone who has a favorite CG in or around Enid, OK or Kingfisher County. Yes, have already done some research on rvparkreviews.com but I always like to get input from the folks here on the Forum. Much obliged.

RE: Savannah GA and Charleston SC campground and turs

James Island is our choice when in Charleston. We've also used Oak Plantation CG but James Island is nicer. As to Savannah - Skidaway Island State Park. Just take your time on interior roads, but a great CG.

RE: March 13 & 14 , 1993 snowstorm coming in 2017 !

I'll add my 2 cents to this after it's over. Trust me, you don't want to be in my shoes at the moment.

RE: Flowers in the snow today

As of today, there is a potential Nor'easter in the forecast for Tuesday. Flowers will be under the snow.....

RE: Roof restoration

I am looking at either replacing my EPDM roof or having it done by somebody like RVArmor. Quote for roof replacement from my dealer was $5000-$6000 including labor (about 40 hours). RVArmor quote is about $3000- $4000 (28' TT) depending on how much work has to be done before the sealants go on. Either way it ain't cheap. And yes, I'm nostalgic about the aluminum roof on our old Sunline..........

RE: myrtle beach travel park

We've used both Ocean Lakes and Myrtle Beach Travel Park - like them both. Coming from NJ, I agree with DrivingMissDaisy; we've done that exact route and it is nice. I-95 around Baltimore & DC is horrendous and traffic will be heavy even well south of DC. If you take I-95 anyway, consider the Americamps RV Park around Ashland, VA. (formerly the Richmond North KOA) for an overnight stop. Easy access to and from I-95 and they have long, level pull-thrus.

RE: Where is it ?

Best place of all for me is with my DW. But if you want a geographic location, my pick would be Crater Lake, OR. Runner up in my book was a spectacular star-studded night in Arco, ID. I never saw so many stars in my entire life........

RE: Travel trailer memories....

Have lots of memories much like Camper G describes. In my case it started with my dad renting a Tartan tent trailer and pulling it with his new 1966 Buick Special wagon (yep, clamp-on bumper hitch). That Tartan had nothing except maybe a sink. Cooking was done outside on a Coleman "green box" stove; light was provided by the gas lanterns that put Coleman on the map. No refrigerator - just an ice chest. Oh, and that Buick wagon? Black vinyl seats and NO air conditioning. And our first trip was through the deep South in summertime.......

Northern Texas & Northern Louisiana

One of the things we'd like to do this summer is to spend time in the northern reaches of Louisiana and Texas; they are among the last states in which we have not yet camped. Looking for recommendations as to decent campgrounds and things to do - historical, geological attractions interest us the most.

RE: Dodge City RV Parks

We've used Gunsmoke RV Park on multiple occasions - it was up for sale at our last visit (2009) so I can't speak to how it is at present. It will be hot there. 100 degrees during the day is not uncommon. Also, the wind blowing across the prairie is fairly strong so we never put our awning out on any of our visits.

Good-bye, Old Paint........

Today I retired our venerable 2000 Dodge window van, after over 16 years and 136,000 miles (I need 4WD to get to work should the weather not cooperate). The Dodge was, for 9 years, our tow vehicle and was the motive power for most of our voyages when our kids were small. DW had to come out and sit in it "just one last time." My brother is buying it from us, so at least it will still be in the family. Farewell, old friend..........

RE: The Natchez Trace pulling a trailer

Just be aware that it is a narrow two-lane highway with little or no shoulders and an enforced speed limit. A real fun, casual drive. This pretty much sums up my thoughts. We enjoyed our trip on the Trace, and the key is to not be in a hurry. Enjoy & safe travels.

RE: camping suggestions in Montana

Ditto on 7th Ranch. Spectacular views of sunset from the hill above the park, and you can also see a portion of the Little Bighorn Battlefield from the CG.

RE: Places we should all visit.

All good suggestions so far and yes, "to each his own." I 2nd the motion on Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Mt. Rushmore. For historical significance my list would also include places already mentioned - Pearl Harbor, Gettysburg and Arlington are just a few. It's also hard to beat the Williamsburg/Jamestown/Yorktown area. I would add Crater Lake for sure. Other places that really impressed us but rarely make a "must see" list are Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Painted Desert/Petrified Forest, Sunset Crater, Devil's Tower, Sequoia NP and Craters of the Moon.

RE: Retirement savings

Achieving a balance is a hard thing in my opinion. And there is the crux of the matter. For the vast majority of our married years, DW & I had one income - mine - and we managed to raise two kids. We've always had the things we NEEDED and for the things we wanted, well, we saved up until we could afford them. Call it balance, call it discipline - whatever. DD & her husband are trying to make ends meet; she emailed me asking, "How did you & Mom do it?" If there is one tenet I hope she follows it's this - "It's not what you make, it's what you keep." I feel badly for most young folks (I can't believe I just said that......!) in this day and age as a good percentage of them are drowning in debt. Often that is college debt. If that isn't bad enough take a good look at marketing strategies anymore that offer "easy payment terms." Yeah, right. Over the long haul you wind up paying WAY more because that attractive financing offer comes with a lengthy repayment schedule. If they would take the 30 or so seconds to crunch the numbers they could avoid living paycheck to paycheck. Maybe "foresight" is a better word, because being ready to afford to retire requires it. JMHO

RE: Dirty Silverware at a Restaurant. What would you do?

It goes back. Having said that we typically dine at the same, well-managed establishments and don't run in to this. If we're on the road, well then we're not going back anyway.

RE: We have no heat

Hubby's degree is in electrical engineering but prefers to leave some things to the pros. This is one of them. Yes, it's going to cost us $198 to have the tech come (he'll be here shortly) but he'll also check the system out. If it's going to get blown up, I'd rather they do it than we do it. Very smart!!
