RE: Myrtle Beach Travel Park specific question

Agree with what Tom N said. While you can't SEE the water from your site, you can walk there in a jiffy. That said........ Sites close to the shore have no shade, so if you're there in the summer it will be HOT during the day in your rig. Also, each of the sites have a little "cabana" that provides some shade outside in addition to (or in place of) your awning. Enjoy and safe travels.

RE: Skidaway or James Island?

Been to both and love 'em both. But from what you say you want to do I'd go with James Island.

RE: Best route from Delaware to Maine

It depends how far you want to travel. You can go west and pick up I-81, follow it north to I-84 east. You will bypass Philadelphia and NYC. Agree with the above. I travel the NJ turnpike often and it's not my idea of a relaxing drive. If you have the time take gbopp's route. The only caveat to that route, however, is bridge construction on I-84 just west Milford, PA. It was restricted to one lane only eastbound in July of last year; not sure what the status is at the moment.

RE: Summer 2017 Trip Planning (Utah, Wyoming, Montana, S Dakota)

My suggestion is this - when you're done in the Mt. Rushmore/Black Hills area, take Rt. 16 west out of SD in to Newcastle, WY. From there use Rt. 85 north to Four Corners then Rt. 585 to Sundance and on to Devils Tower. We made a point to get off the SuperSlab (interstate highways) as much as possible. This route is a nice drive with little traffic, and very scenic. Good place to eat in Sundance is the ARO Restaurant, if it is still there. Enjoy & safe travels.

RE: Oregon Holiday

Sounds like your itinerary is firmed up for the Crater Lake area, but if not Collier Memorial State Park is truly a gem. Not as close to Crater Lake as others, but nice sites, clean and in a beautiful setting. Right next door is a museum dedicated to the Pacific Northwest lumber industry. Sounds dull but it is fascinating to see the evolution of the technology involved with the timber trade. On edit - Collier Memorial is right outside of Chiloquin. Enjoy & safe travels.

RE: I have been un-employed for 6 months now....

Have you ever thought of teaching metal shop at a high school?Do they still offer shop in high school anymore these days? Not the "shop classes" we knew. It's all computer-aided drafting & design (CADD) so you really don't make anything with your own two hands. You program a computer to do it for you. Big mistake IMHO. Some students excel working with their hands AND sometimes there is no alternative to custom machining & fabrication. Congrats on your new gig, and I hope it all works out for you!

RE: Dislike of 'Reservation Only' camping

I am of the other camp, pun intended. I prefer to make reservations and know I will have a site waiting for me when I arrive rather than take my chances and hope for one. And if none available, have to scramble to find something near by. This is us, too. Here in the Northeast campgrounds are incredibly busy and tend to be full almost all summer and weekends beginning in late spring and extending through the end of October. Like others have said, the improved economy and low fuel prices have a lot to do with that. Like you, we have a limited amount of time we can be on the road, so making reservations ahead of time guarantees we won't waste that time looking for a place to stay. JHMO

RE: I think its time for my daughter to change jobs

It takes a very dedicated, compassionate person to be a Special Ed teacher. My other sister did it for 20 years. Teachers in any position could be attacked by a student. Moving to 'normal kids' would not guarantee her safety. X2 on both of the above. I hope your daughter will be OK. Education needs talented, dedicated and compassionate teachers now more than ever. It's what happens in the classroom - day in and day out - that makes a difference in a kid's life, not tests. I'll step off my soapbox now before I get in to trouble.........

RE: Darker colored trailers.

Our 2006 Sunline TT had a light Maple interior which we loved. Made the whole interior bright and cheery and appear larger than it really was. :) Our '83 Sunline had a dark interior compared to our current TT, and like the above reply, lighter colors (not white in our case) make the interior appear more spacious. This is especially true since our TT does not have any slides. IIRCC at the time, Coachmen offered three different interior decors with a choice of a muted blue, a light green or beige/brown as accent colors. I've not seen blue or green in any interiors in years.

RE: What have I gotten myself into? (long read, good story)

"My wife approached me with the concept that we really need to do more family things before the kids grow out of it and we miss out on important memories and stuff like that." Your wife is right!! Our two are 21 & 24; one in college and one in the Navy. Don't know where the time went but I would not trade the family time we had with our TT for ANYTHING. Worth every penny, and I don't even want to try to guesstimate what that total may be....... Welcome to the Forum. Enjoy & safe travels.

RE: 18 days and counting down!

For our cross-country trips I would bring along the title to the TV & TT, in the event of a worst-case scenario in which one or both are totalled.

RE: RV Park Reviews

I use it to survey CG's in an area we are considering to visit, I use it to HELP me choose a CG, and I also submit reviews. Like many others have said, it is best to "read between the lines." One or two crank reviews out of a dozen is not a deal breaker. Rather, I look for consistent themes, like rude office personnel, out-of-control golf cart traffic, rules not enforced, etc. And yes, good things, too. I've often used the TL Campground Guide and I almost always solicit opinions here on the Forum.

RE: Tacoma Narrow bridge

I don't know, it looks kind of narrow to me! (combined) 8 lanes is narrow? It's actually two bridges - one for northbound traffic and one for southbound!

RE: East Coast Vacation Input Needed?

My picks would be (in no particular order) Myrtle Beach SC, Charleston SC and Savannah GA.

RE: E. Shroudsburg, Pa. 78-33-80 for our c.g.?

Agree with jfkmk, above. If you think you'll be passing through this area during morning or afternoon rush hour, avoid Rt. 22 and take I-78.

RE: Chama,NM

We visited Chama in 2009 and used Little Creel CG. Nothing special but then for us it was simply a place to sleep and nothing more. Easy access, and they also have sites along the river. Enjoy & safe travels.

RE: Planning trip to Charleston SC

What naturist said. In town, take a tour of the historic areas. Visit Magnolia Plantation just down the road and the HL Hunley project at the Warren Lasch Conservation facility in North Charleston. We also enjoyed the SC Aquarium.

RE: Skidaway Island is a gem

We stayed there in 2011, before the upgrades to the hookups. Typically we prefer FHU campsites but we were more than happy with our time at Skidaway Island. Great place.
