RE: Fastest route through Seattle??

Either route (I-5 or 405) is a breeze at 3 or 4 am any day of the week. Even 5 is fine but you want to be south of Seattle before 6, for sure. X2 DD lived in the Seattle area for a year and half. I've never seen some much sustained traffic through the day as we saw in the Seattle-Tacoma area.

RE: Harrisburg Pa campgrounds

Agree with other replies to your post re: Twin Grove CG. It is very nice but may be a bit far a way. Hershey Highmeadow - we've never stayed there but a friend of mine does and likes it. If proximity to Harrisburg is required then I'd also consider Western Village RV Park in Carlisle. I've seen opinions here and rvparkreviews.com that run the whole spectrum but our experience was very good. We have experience with only two CG's in the Lancaster area so far - Old Mill Stream and the Jellystone Park at Quarryville. The latter is aimed at families/kids like Twin Grove and is quite pricey. Old Mill Stream is right next to Dutch Wonderland; we've not been there since our pop-up days (about 18 years maybe). What I recall is an older CG with unusual layouts (in a "T" shape) for the sites. Enjoy no matter which one you pick. Safe travels.

RE: Beer!

Don't know where you're located but if you can get it, try Black & Tan by Yuengling, made in Pottsville, PA. They also have a brewery in Florida now, too.

RE: Help Stoltzfus in PA sold us a brand new leaking camper!

Agree with other replies to your post in that the dealer and/or manufacturer should be given the opportunity to remedy the situation first. Another response to your post said to keep all paperwork, keep a log of all correspondence - who you talked to, when & the gist of the conversation. Be accurate. Keep a log of all the issues, and pictures to help bolster your case are a good idea. If you subscribe to Trailer Life mag take a look at the "Action Line" section (where customer disputes with dealers or manufacturers are highlighted). With very few exceptions those customers who had the dispute resolved in their favor kept meticulous records. We purchased our TT new in 2000, and like you we discovered things that needed to be fixed, even though it was a new unit. The dealer dealt with them promptly. One final note, as another reply to your post implied - there is no such thing as a maintenance-free RV. The owner has to be diligent, too. Good luck, enjoy, & safe travels.

RE: The Value of a Friendly Staff

The other side of this is that we as customers need to show the people working there some courtesy and respect. You can catch more flies with honey than vinegar. Most people respond better to a smile and friendly face than to anger or criticism. I have to second this motion. I spent 12 years in a retail sales setting. 95% of our customers were great - then there was that 5% that wanted everything for free. I see this often in postings on this Forum and on rvparkreviews.com - a review bashing a CG for inane or nit-picky things. Ultimately, however, business goes where it is welcomed and stays where it is well-cared for.

RE: East from Durango

That's the Wolf Creek Pass. Lots of second gear both up and down, but otherwise not bad at all. There's a pull out on the west side with nice views. We did this route in 2004 in our old TV (had only 245 horses) as described above. Take your time, enjoy the scenery, and let those folks in a rush pass you. Enjoy & safe travels.

Looking for a CG near Alexandria Bay, NY

We plan to visit Boldt Castle later this summer. Can anybody recommend a CG in the vicinity with hookups? Thanks.

Pulled the trigger.......

Today I notified my administration that I will be retiring at the end of the month. I began my career in music education in 1978 and for the most part it has been a rewarding experience. As this past year played out, though, it became clearer to me that it was time to move on and do something else. What that is, I do not know at the moment, but is there more travel in the future? Definitely. Enjoy & safe travels everyone.

Good CG in the Mt. Washington Area?

We plan to visit Mt. Washington sometime this summer. What are your good picks for a CG in the area? Need full-hookups; other amenities don't matter. And yes, I also use rvparkreviews. Thanks.

RE: KOA Philadelphia/West Chester - PA, Opinions?

Plenty of sites in the open but many are unlevel. Pretty location. Now, it's been a long time since we were there, but that was my experience as well. Very clean, quiet. Nice people running the place.

RE: Readers/Members

Wonder what percentage of the RVing public belong to this site. In answer to the OP's question, which I have often wondered about myself over the years, I would say very small. Just in conversation, I have asked many fellow campers in many different states over many years, "Do you ever look at, or heard of, RV.NET?". I have had almost zilch positive response. My experience has been the same.

RE: Camera ?

Megapixel ratings get boosted way beyond resolution capabilities of the optics supplies because the public thinks a bigger number is better for almost anything. Sometimes it is, sometimes it is not. Sometimes the higher resolution justs lets you zoom deeper into the image to see how bad the imaging really is. X2 I have an old Canon PowerShot that is (by today's standards) a measly 2.2 megapixels. It takes great pictures hence I still use it.

RE: Our families 8 week RV Trip

TurboJeep: I'm not going to give you any specifics on "skip this and see that instead." As others have said, "to each his own." We did three cross-country trips of 32 days or more from 2004 to 2009, at 6300, 4200 and 8300 miles respectively with our kids when they were between 9/12 and 14/17 years of age (they are grown & out now, even though they're in my sig! :-) ) so I feel qualified to offer my perspective. What I can tell you up front is for every one neat thing you want to see, you'll need to pass up 10 others. It's just a function of the vastness of our country and how much there is to see and do. I'll also tell you most of us easterners seriously underestimate how huge the western states are. That said, I love driving out there because you don't have the traffic congestion we do here (except for animal jams in the national parks.......) but they are big. VERY big. As you can see from the mileage, the final trip was the most ambitious - 8300 miles in 35 days. Like you, we had some very specific goals in mind for the trip, and lengthening the time frame was not an option. We spent no more than 2 nights in any one CG; most of them were one night. Compared to the first two trips, the '09 voyage was more like a drive-by shooting. Don't misunderstand, I don't regret one moment of that trip and we saw LOTS of stuff. Our kids don't regret it, either. It was, however, a tight schedule and thankfully we had no emergencies or contingencies to throw off our schedule. Your schedule is ambitious, but I think it's "do-able." Would I do it? No. Here's why. For a moment, consider this question - what do you want your children to remember about this trip? Since we began serious trips around the country in 2001 we've visited hundreds of destinations & points of interest; national parks & monuments, state parks, amusement parks, historical sites, archeological sites and geological sites......you get the idea. But when we think back to those times there is almost ALWAYS an anecdote about something we or the kids did in a CG just hanging out. Or sometimes we'd discover something along the way that was really too cool to pass up and it turned out to be a phenomenal time. My point is this - allow your kids time to be kids. If that means taking a day to simply splash in a pool, play on the playground or just dig in the dirt, let them do it! Having a great time doesn't mean that every moment has to be structured and organized. Trust me on that. Remember, the point of this trip should be to relieve stress, not induce it. Family time, as the credit card commercial says, is priceless. Whatever you choose, enjoy & safe travels.

RE: Campground Guide

I've used the Trailer Life guide and rvparkreviews.com. In either case you need to take the ratings with a grain of salt. In the case of the former I've had good luck using GS parks. Where the latter is concerned I look for consistency of comments/ratings from one reviewer to the next (some people just can't be pleased). With very few exceptions (or areas of the country with virtually no CG's) we've had good luck. Good luck & safe travels.

RE: Anyone flying the flag this Memorial day?

Flying as we speak at our CG site. US flag honors my dad & FIL, both WWII vets. Navy flag for DD! Enjoy & safe travels, everyone!

RE: GM predicts what driving will be like in 1976

Well, I'm glad the pre-digested food prediction didn't come to fruition!:B X 2. GM was way off the mark, though; many cars of the late 70's barely had enough power to get out of their own way. Nobody saw the smog equipment coming back in 1956.

Another "Why people don't fly" rant

RE: Buying Used with Delamination?

I would pass as well. Even if the seller tells you the problem has been fixed, you really have no way of knowing.
