RE: Upper Peninsula of Michigan

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore Taquamenon Falls SP Whitefish Point, Shipwreck Museum Mackinaw Island. Take the ferry from Mackinaw City, stay at Mill Creek CG Agree with all of the above. We visited Tahquamenon Falls but did it from the south side of the river via the Toonerville Trolley (a 2-foot gauge railroad) and riverboat cruise. You can pick that up at Soo Junction (just east of Newberry). Our riverboat pilot was very knowledgeable and was unbeatable at pointing out wildlife in and around the river. We used Wandering Wheels CG near Munising as our base for exploring the Pictured Rocks area because we wanted full hookups and WiFi. Take the cruise to see the Rocks in the evening; the sunset can create fabulous colors on the cliffs. We also hiked to Miner's Falls, Miner's Castle and to the light station at AuSable Point. Walking along the shore rather than the road the parallels the lake will save you from some of the insects; the flies can be horrendous and are immune to all but the strongest repellants. Ask me how I know....... You may also stumble on the remains of shipwrecks along the beach. Mackinac Island - we took our own bikes and had a great time. The route that encircles the island is flat & easy; if you want to ride any of the trails in the interior of the island they can be quite steep. We were there in July. It was quite crowded and it is very cool on the lake when you take the ferry to the island. Nights in general in the UP can be chilly. Enjoy & safe travels.

RE: Bypassing Chicago

We took the SS Badger car ferry on our way home from the Wisconsin Dells area. No, inexpensive it is not but it allows you to bypass all of the roadwork, traffic congestion and tolls around the Chicago area and northern Indiana, etc. Quite an experience. If you take the "red eye" sailings at night there is a discount, though. You are not permitted to stay in your RV while underway; you have to be on one of the passenger decks. You can rent a stateroom for $49.

RE: jordan center in penn state seeing garth brooks

State College KOA less than 1/2hr from Penn State. About 15 miles. There is also Gram & Pap's Ft. Bellefonte CG right next to the KOA. We prefer the latter.

Need CG near Brigantine, NJ

If anybody has any recent experience with the three closest CG's to Brigantine please bring me up to date. I will be attending a wedding there in June. Rvparkreviews.com lists these: Shady Pines RV Resort Pomona RV Park & Campground Birch Gove Park The review for this last one is extremely old and leads me to believe it is no longer in existence. Your thoughts, please, and thank you.

RE: Planning a trip tp PA

Our CG of choice in Gettysburg in Gettysburg CG. The KOA is nice, too. We no longer stay at Drummer Boy and were treated very rudely at Granite Hill. As for stuff to do in Gettysburg, that depends on a few factors. Are there kids in your family? How much are you in to history? It would be easy to spend 2-3 days in Gettysburg and only get a sampling. Definitely do a tour (live guided or CD guided) and plan to visit the attractions in town (Jennie Wade House, Shriver House, and others). Lots of places to eat from basic diner food to fine dining. Our perennial favorite is Gen. Pickett's Buffet, right on the edge of town on Steinwehr Ave. Good food & lots of it at a fair price. If you leave hungry it's your own fault. Amish Country - the only CG we've used was the Jellystone in Quarryville, but our kids were quite young at the time. It is a nice CG but apt to be expensive. There will be many places to tour or visit that will explain/demonstrate the Amish way of life. Kitchen Kettle Village in Intercourse (yes, that's its name....) is neat - a couple of hours will do it. If you like coffee be sure to visit The Roasted Rooster. Shady Maple - DEFINITE yes, just be aware they are NOT open on Sundays. After visiting the Shady Maple you'll not need to eat again for another 36 hours. Fridays & Saturdays the farmers market in downtown Lancaster is worth a visit. Also consider the Strasburg Railroad and the Pennsylvania Railroad Museum nearby. Hope this helps. Enjoy & safe travels.

RE: Leavenworth campground falls into $2.7 million foreclosure

It's a shame that KOA is sullied by this fiasco. We've stayed in some very nice KOA cgs. X2 Stuff like this is just more fodder for the KOA-bashers, even though KOA corporate has nothing to do with it. Just to be sure, we've encountered some KOA's that needed help, yes, and there are some that are simply outstanding.

RE: Language, are we progressing or regressing

Language has always been evolving. Quite correct, so the "short-hand" we're seeing is a natural outgrowth of our advancing technologies. Seems to me the lack of decorum is the real issue here, which unfortunately is a reflection of our current society, short-hand, technology or not. JMHO

RE: Mesa Verde/Durango Co-where to stay?

Haven't read all replies to your post, but the D&SNGRR goes right through United CG, however it is not really that spacious or "woodsy." And we've not been there now for almost 11 years.

Thank you to all who've responded. My suspicions are confirmed.

Gettysburg Battlefield Resort - Opinions?

Well, when we visited the Harrisburg RV show last month we made the mistake of entering one of the "drawings." Yeah, we "won" 15 nights of "free" camping (that's another story altogether) from Gettysburg Battlefield Resort. I'd like to hear from any of you who have stayed there recently - the good, the bad and everything in between. Rvparkreviews.com ratings are interesting. GBR is among the lower-rated CG's in the Gettysburg area, but the negative reviews are typically older; 2011 or before. One review there states that the membership buy-in was $7000. Anybody know what the current price is? I'm not opposed to staying there, or even putting up with their sales pitch but I'd rather not waste my time if it is nothing special.............. :)

RE: A blast from the past

My parents weren't married yet when the Lone Ranger aired for the first time, but those early episodes were still on when I came along (about 10 years later). B & W television was all we had then.......my folks were some of the last people on the planet to get a color set!!

RE: State College, PA campgrounds/rv parks for Easter

2nd on Buttonwood CG. Nice place & good people that run it. We've often stayed at the Bellefonte/State College KOA. It is one of the nicest and cleanest KOA's you'll find anywhere. Some of the sites can be awkward due them being "carved" into the side of a gentle slope. Just up Jacksonville Rd. from the I-80 interchange with Rt. 26, and almost next door to Gram & Pap's previously mentioned.

RE: I-81 and I-99 in PA

Can't speak for Rt. 15 below Lewisburg to Harrisburg, but we regularly use 15 to get to Gettysburg, getting on at Rt. 581 south of the city. From 581 south to the Mason-Dixon Line Rt. 15 is almost all four lane limited access (except for some traffic lights at Dillsburg). Just judging from the maps I would not take Rt. 15 through Harrisburg. JMHO

RE: Watch what you say on social media.

Those in charge of hiring for corporations have long been known to troll the Internet for information on prospective hires. Has cost untold numbers of folks job opportunities...........

RE: I-81 and I-99 in PA

If the "I-99" you are referring to is Rt. 15 I can tell you this: From the PA/NY line above Mansfield south to Williamsport it is all 4 lane and bypasses all the small towns that "old Rt. 15" used to go through. Nice drive; only one healthy grade that I can think of at the moment and that is as you approach Steam Valley. It is designated as the "future" I-99 corridor. South of Williamsport Rt. 15 is a mixture of 4 lane and 2 lane and does go through some urban areas and small towns until it intersects with I-80. Also a nice drive but don't expect to make good time. I-81 sees heavy use and thus a lot of construction. Currently there is construction in the interchange area with Rt. 309 at MacAdoo. Would help to know where you are headed.

RE: Can this be removed?

Unfortunately, yes. They are there for when you enter or exit an incline. As the tongue of the trailer rises the rear will dip and sometimes drag.

RE: Spring has sprung,

We're in the middle of a snowstorm as I write this. Up to 6" of snow expected before it ends this afternoon, then the overnight temperature is predicted to plummet to a low of 5 degrees.
