RE: MLB Strike Zone and Umpires......?

I've read that in a typical 9 inning game, there's really only about 20 minutes of action. The rest of the time, the pitchers are shaking off signs, and the batters are taking practice swings. And everybody's scratching. :) And this is precisely why I never could get interested in baseball. :p The way my luck runs, I'd be in the restroom when the big play does happen.

RE: Apollo 11 Moon Landing 45 Years Ago Today

I was in my early teens and good chunk of our family was gathered around our Zenith black & white TV set in my parent's living room. While the video quality could be considered poor by today's standards, we though it was pretty good for that day & age and were amazed that it was possible to watch history in the making in real time. Faked? I think somebody would have spilled the beans by now.

RE: Bad day camping beats...

Stuck inside with two teenagers not fun at all. Been there, done that. Check out the show at Medieval Times! Great eats (no utensils allowed - this appeals to most teenagers) and a great show.

Agree with both of the above replies to your post.

RE: Charleston, SC Campground

We have stayed at both and preferred James Island. Same here. What to do in Charleston? The market area is great. We've eaten at both Bubba Gump's and Hyman's; choose the latter if you want a HUGE selection of unusual dishes (example - alligator sausage). Take in Patriot Point and Fort Sumter. I also highly recommend the H. L. Hunley at the Warren Lasch facility in North Charleston. We also enjoyed the S. Carolina Aquarium. Enjoy & safe travels.

RE: Trailer tongue weight scales?

I also use the Sherline Scale. Since my TV is a Toyota Sequoia I am careful with tongue weight. It also came in handy when a buddy was TT shopping for a unit to pull with his Jeep Liberty.

RE: 260 ft lbs of torque? Really?

I had my TT in for state inspection this morning and recalling this thread, perused the selection of hitch balls. Torque spec on the label of a 2 5/16" ball was 450 lb./ft.

RE: Please Suggest! Yellowstone...

I'll second what kknowlton said about supplies - take LOTS of your own food, etc. and stock up that pantry before you get into the park. Even basic groceries in the YNP "trading posts" are very expensive and you'll not find much in the way of variety of brands and/or sizes. Fuel - there's nothing you can do about that. We traveled over 300 miles within the park in just three days so you'll need to gas up in YNP. Grin & bear it. Clothing - layering - yes. The weather in very changeable throughout the day. On our second day we went from bright sunshine to hailstorm. It gets cold at night, even in July. Be sure you have warm clothing, blankets for the beds and your LP supply is sufficient. What to do? I think the better question is deciding what you have time for and what you'll have to put off for a future visit! The famous attractions are a must - Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, Mammoth Hot Springs, Old Faithful. We rented a motorboat and went out on the lake for a couple of hours. Cost was reasonable (in 2004 dollars, $37 an hour) and we had a blast. There are thousands of geysers, hot springs, and the like. Ones that stand out in my mind are Artists' Paint Pots, Mud Volcano, Dragon's Mouth Spring. Enjoy & safe travels.

RE: generator

Starting wattage for an A/C unit can be too much of a load for a small generator. You need to know how much your A/C draws and what the maximum output of your generator is.

RE: Baltimore, Southern Penn. Site Seeing

Ditto on Baltimore Inner Harbor/Aquarium and the Yuengling Brewery. In Lancaster don't miss the farmer's market downtown - they are open (I believe) Tuesday, Friday & Saturday. Kitchen Kettle Village in Intercourse is also cool and a nice drive. Also in "Amish Country" we liked the Strasburg Railroad and the PA Railroad Museum. Even though you said you'd already been to Gettysburg, the Adams County Winery is interesting. If you get out that way (west of town on Rt. 30) also take in the Round Barn for local produce and other good foods. Enjoy & safe travels.

RE: Roamin in Wyomin

Brings back great memories - 10 years ago this month we were in those exact same locations.............

RE: Question: PA tunnels

Most of the Turnpike system was part of the old railroad system. The old rail beds where taken up, and the roadway paved. A couple of the old tunnels where "Daylighted" - or the earth above the tunnel was totally removed! so that the roadway was in daylight! A couple of the tunnels on the original east-west turnpike have now been bypassed. Sideling Hill tunnel comes to mind.

RE: Question: PA tunnels

RV's go through the Lehigh Tunnel all the time - no issues. Jerrybo66 - thanks for adding your experiences to this thread. Most folks don't know that the original Lehigh Tunnel (now the northbound lanes) was first a railroad tunnel.

RE: I promise this is my last question....altitudes along I-90

As far as passes go, this is a little one. X2 We did this stretch in '09. You'll be fine. Good luck & safe travels.

RE: Need a place to stay overnight

Never been there but there appears to be a CG right off of I-95 in Roanoke Rapids, NC called RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads. You can find out more at rvparkreviews.com

RE: A/C for my shop!

Nice shop. X2. I'd like to have one like that some day.

RE: Virginia Camping in January

Since you mentioned "historical" do be sure to take in Colonial Williamsburg in the winter, particularly before Jan. 1 while they are still putting on the special programming for the holidays. The programs and the way the area is lit up at night is positively fantastic. MUCH less crowded than during the summer. Enjoy & safe travels.

RE: Coldest Antartic June Ever Recorded

Paul, Seeing as how you've actually been there, when you're standing at the South Pole, doesn't all the blood rush to your head? :) Nobody knows, because when you get that far south you fall off the Earth........ :R:B

RE: Need stop from NH to Sevierville, TN

Check out Twin Grove Resort & CG near Pine Grove, PA. Immaculately clean, lots of sites large enough for your rig. Two pools - one with a waterside, game room, ice cream bar and a mini-amusement park. This would be a perfect place if you want to break up your trip with a day off the road. Also restaurant on the premises, and the food is excellent. If you go you can get off at the Rt. 443 interchange and head west to the CG; on leaving continue west on 443 then hook up with Rt. 72 heading south which will get you back on I-81. Nice drive. Enjoy & safe travels.
