RE: Yikes! Rockey mountain special

No problems with that combo, minivan has lots of room for all the kids. Good. The kids can get out and help push up those long grades!! :W :B

RE: Campgrounds in or around St. Louis MO

We used Cahokia RV Parque across the river in Cahokia, IL back in '09. It was o.k.; I think there are better choices in the area. We were there only for two nights and it was handy to downtown St. Louis.

RE: Draper Utah Good Sam Park

Were there reviews for this park on www.rvparkreviews.com? Post your review there. X2. Anymore I consult rvparkreviews before booking. Having said that I try to be careful and look over a large cross-section of reviews and it depends, to a certain extent, if I'm looking for an overnight or a place to hang out for several days. Even the best of parks will not please everybody all of the time.

RE: Another negative recommendation of an RV Park

When I said I was going to post my negative comments to the various forums I am a member of their response was again "Oh well!" This has turned out to be a most thought-provoking thread. Just to be clear, I spent nearly 12 years (PT/FT) in an over-the-counter retail establishment and understand full well what customer service is about. Methinks, however, the shoe would be on the other foot if the OP were the CG operator. All CG's have fixed costs and any discounts the CG owner grants to a customer need to be made up somewhere. That "somewhere" is the the pockets of the rest of us. Read "Action Line" in TL magazine; time and again you'll see that a manufacturer will cover a repair or replacement as a gesture of good will. That "gesture of good will" to keep some customers happy is passed on to the rest of us, period. I'm not excusing the response of the CG staff. If any on this Forum have ever tried to book a site at most CG's in the Northeast during the summer months you know demand clearly outstrips supply. I have no doubt the CG will fill the vacancy left by the OP. Finally, any business can choose the kind of clientele they wish to serve. If a CG wants to cater to the permanent resident who lets their RV rot on site (and we've all seen that) they will. If a CG wants to set age restrictions on an RV or the owners of the RV they will. Is that wrong? I guess it depends on who you ask. To the OP - you have every right to exercise your freedom of choice.

RE: Another negative recommendation of an RV Park

And when enough people try to take advantage of that perceived loophole, they will close it by just charging $10.00 per extra person. Exactly correct. We encountered a CG in Wisconsin that charged a fee of $10 for any guest staying longer than 20 minutes. $5 visitor fee is not out of line. See Jim Shoe's post - this is why I'd never want to own or operate a CG.

RE: 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO Could Become The World's Most $$$ Car

Fortunate is the person who owns one. They can sell it and retire. If they had the $$ to buy the car in the first place money for retirement shouldn't be a problem. :B :E

RE: Identity of this Los Angeles Area Restaurant???

Just eyeballing the clientele in this photo leads me to believe this restaurant doesn't attract much of an RV crowd, hence the long wait for your answer.........JMHO

RE: They don't make muscle cars like they used to

No, they don't make them like they used to, but they're affordable. Mecum Auto Auction in Seattle recently sold a Hemi-powered 1971 Plymouth Barracuda for $3.5 million. No, that's not a typo. Mecum is just finishing up their first-ever auction in Harrisburg today; yesterday a 1970 Dodge Coronet R/T brought $305,000.

RE: Camping Suggestion About 4 Hours From NYC?

Looked towards Pa and maybe the Lancaster area, nice campgrounds and plenty to do. X2. PA Railroad Museum, Strasberg RR, Dutch Wonderland (amusement park) and other attractions having to do with the Amish way of life. CG's we've used in the area would be Old Mill Stream (right next to Dutch Wonderland) and the Jellystone in Quarryville. The latter is nicer with lots for the kids but is IMHO pricey. Gettysburg and the surrounding area is also a good choice.

RE: Model A's

Expensive hobby - YES! My son is finding that out - he is the owner of his great-grandfather's (my maternal GF) '58 Chevrolet Biscayne. It is back on the road after 36 years in storage. Between the two of us I'd say we have over $4k in it already and we have yet to tackle any of the sheet metal repair it's going to need. Depending on make/model, yes, lots of repro parts on the market these days but like anything else the stuff coming in from Asia is very unpredictable in terms of quality. What is even harder to find is a good machine shop - all those guys are retiring and nobody is taking their place. Restomods are also becoming more prevalent so I always take a closer look when I see something like in the original post. Thanks for sharing!

RE: Charleston, SC Campground

"All look & smell alike." I'll take your word for it, and I'll ask DD, too. We toured the USS Kitty Hawk when I was still pretty young - don't remember much! Both the Yorktown & Clamagore are in need of serious maintenance. The bow of the Clamagore is literally rotting away. The Laffey (last I knew) was in dry dock for some repairs & paint. Don't know if it's back yet. To the OP - also check out Magnolia Plantation.

RE: Charleston, SC Campground

Jim - USS Yorktown is at Patriot's Point. Great display of all kinds of aircraft and relics on the hangar deck.

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.

RE: route 6 in pennsylvania

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.
