RE: The things you find in cemeteries

Near the CG we use for our Memorial Day/Labor Day weekends is a small country cemetery (stumbled on to it while I was biking one day). Among those laid to rest there is a Revolutionary War vet.

RE: Winter Camping Close To New York?

Consider Aces High RV Park in East Lyme, CT. Nice place - sites are spacious and most are quite level. We're headed there next month.

RE: KOA's in General

KOA's are always in the 'mix' for us even though the kids are gone. Like others have said - no different than any other parks so doing your homework is critical. Go to rvparkreviews.com and ask questions here. Don't be fooled by ads. As it happens, our "home" campground is a KOA. Run by great people who are actively managing their own business. I try to avoid corporate-owned campgrounds if I can.

RE: On the road to success, there are no shortcuts

Back to sweeping the warehouse floor ;) That's the best the ex-driver can hope for.......

RE: Four Corners Monument

If gotten used to this around. the world, where empoverished local residents try to eke out a living selling their crafts to fabulously wealthy visitors, and I don't really mind my wife and daughters helping them out a little. We did not buy anything at Four Corners primarily because there was nothing we wanted. The vendors there, however, to me would not fall in to the category of "impoverished." Behind the rows of booths I saw some VERY nice cars, a few of which we cannot afford. That said, back to the topic...... It was cool for us as a family if for no other reason than to say we'd been there. That was 12 years ago. The kids are grown and gone now (my sig notwithstanding!) but the picture of the four of us each standing in a different state is one of my favorites. Priceless.

RE: Hurricane Matthew/Myrtle Beach

Thanks, PackerBacker! Myrtle Beach Travel Park is our most likely choice.

Hurricane Matthew/Myrtle Beach

Does anybody know how the Myrtle Beach area fared during Matthew? Lots of press on NC but very little on the news about South Carolina. We had planned a mid-winter escape for early 2017.......:E

RE: We made another one

Congrats to you & yours, DKean!! DW & I are really the young 'uns here as we are married "only" 31 years as of July. But I have to admit, yes, I really robbed the cradle. She was 3 years old when we met........ I was 6. We pretty much ignored each other for the next 21 years until I was home from grad school on break. The rest is history.....

RE: Crater lake, Mt. Rainier & Olympic

Crater Lake - like others have said, it depends on what you want to do. If hiking is on the agenda, plan on spending a couple of days. At a minimum, hike down the trail to the lake level and take the boat tour. It is, however, a steep ascent coming out, so I hope you're all in good physical condition. We visited Crater Lake on July 9, 2009 - the boat had only been in operation about a week. Take plenty of bug repellant, but be prepared to get bugged by bugs anyway. If you're lucky like we were, you'll be able to stop along the road and have a summertime snowball fight - yes, there was that much snow left in the woods in July! We stayed at Collier Memorial State Park, about 30 minutes south of Crater Lake in Chiloquin. Gorgeous setting and immaculately clean. There is a Pacific Northwest logging museum attached to the park - so if any of you have an interest in history this could be worth checking out. Incredible collection of all kinds of logging equipment.

RE: I think this guy needs a WD hitch and a little adjustment..

Looks to be an early Explorer, maybe '93 to '95 or so based on the front end. Leaf springs in the rear, yes. I had a '91 Explorer and loved it for everything except towing our (at the time) 15' Sunline TT. Bought a better TV inside of a year.

2016 Hershey RV Show

Just returned from a day at the "grand-daddy of all RV shows." A few observations: 1) Browns still dominate as interior colors, but grey is much more common than it was and some units are now sporting interior furnishings in tan. Overall, interiors seem lighter than in the past few years. 2) Prices are up. I guess the economy is doing well. RV prices, accessory prices and food prices inside the show - all hefty IMHO. 3) Apparently bigger is better. We saw a huge inventory of gargantuan travel trailers and 5th wheels. 4) Sales people were not pests for a change. IF we had been unhappy with our 16 year-old unit we would have replaced it already. When we said we were just window-shopping - and we were - they generally responded with "OK, but if there is anything we can help you with please ask."

RE: Charleston visiting Savannah

Charleston - South Carolina Aquarium, H. L. Hunley (in N. Charleston), Hyman's Seafood, Bubba Gump's (we like them both but Hyman's has much more variety in the menu), Patriot's Point (USS Yorktown, USS Clamagore), Ft. Sumter, Magnolia Plantation, horse-drawn tours of downtown, ghost tours, open air market. Our CG of choice in Charleston is James Island County Park. Good luck, enjoy & safe travels.

RE: First time east coast in a motorhome

We used Cherry Hill RV Park near Greenbelt MD as a base for touring DC. You can (I think, still can) get a Metro bus right at the CG and take the subway in to DC or go back up the road a bit to the Greenbelt station and get right on a train. Myrtle Beach - we've used Ocean Lakes (about 25 years ago) and Myrtle Beach Travel Park. Prefer the latter CG. NYC - agree with sdianel above. Take a side trip to the Brotherhood Winery in nearby Washingtonville, NY (toad only - there is a low-clearance 9' RR overpass on the way to Washingtonville from the KOA). If you don't want to make the trip to Brotherhood there is a wine shop right next to the CG office. Only time/place I've ever seen that! Also recommend stopping at FDR's home in Hyde Park, NY.

RE: Custer's Last Stand

Our last visit to Little Bighorn Battlefield was in 2009. As I recall there was dedicated parking for RV's but don't recollect how big - or not big - it was. We also stayed at 7th Ranch. Liked it very much, especially the complimentary ice cream bar upon registration. Walked to the top of the hill at the CG and took in a spectacular Montana sunset.

RE: Mileage on your Trailer?

About 35,000. All of the Lower 48, plus too many weekend trips to count. We've had it 16 years as of late August 2016, and are on only the 2nd set of Goodyear Marathons (US, not Chinese). E-Z Flex Suspension and aluminum wheels to replace the OEM suspension and cheesy (also rusted) steel wheels went on in 2009. Like others, we go to at least one RV show per year and have yet to see anything we like better than our current rig.

You are an incredible example of courage and positive attitude, Tom. You & your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

RE: Recommendations CA; OR; WA Rv parks

Oregon - Collier Memorial State Park just north of Klamath Falls and south of Crater Lake (town of Chiloquin). Still one of my favorite CG's. California - lots of CG's in Red Bluff. We used Red Bluff RV Park. Not fancy but clean and had amenities. Washington - Hell's Canyon RV Park & Marina (Clarkston, on border with ID). Has the most fancy stuff of the three on this list.
