RE: The search is on....

Cherry Hill - yes. The convenience of the Metro is hard to beat.

RE: Any suggestions for a stop between Philly & Charleston, SC?

It would help to know your intended route. We've used the Americamps north of Richmond, and have also used the Holiday RV park in Virginia Beach.

RE: Bank Rant

Not going to argue the point as to who is at fault here - just an observation. The bigger the bank (or institution of any kind) the more impersonal the interactions. Established accounts at a credit union. Withdrew all of my funds from the former bank. Now, a millionaire I am not, but it was a significant amount of money. Not one person there questioned why, so good riddance. So yes, the OP's son learned a valuable lesson but at the same time it would have been worth a call to the bank to see if anything could be done and go from there. JMHO

RE: Tybee Island or Skidaway Island, GA?

I would vote for Skidaway Island SP as a serene, peaceful place to relax after a day touring. We enjoyed it last year! Our sentiments, exactly. Stayed there in 2012 and LOVED it!

RE: CG Recommendation, St. Ignace, MI

KOA's aren't real popular with many here on the Forum but we used the KOA in St. Ignace (we like to have FHU and WiFi if possible). IIRC they provided a shuttle to take us & our bikes down to the docks to get the ferry to Mackinac Island. Nothing fancy and served our needs. Would stay there again.

RE: camping in yellowstone

If you want to stay in the park with full hook-ups, it's Fishing Bridge or nothing. Your choice of CG should reflect what your plans are while you're there.

RE: Help preparing for first long distance RVing vacation

Agree with some of the great suggestions you got so far. We've done 3 trips across the US of 32 days or more and a lot of what you've been told is standard operating procedure for us. Tires - yes, check them on TT and TV and don't forget the spares. I always take a pressure gauge and bought one of those laser/infra-red thermometers to check tire & hub temperatures when we stop. Bearings - could be worth the peace of mind to have your trusted RV service shop repack them. You have a pretty ambitious schedule and a bearing failure would ruin a LOT of your plans. Clearances - know them. Weight - before we leave on any extended voyage all the unnecessary stuff comes out - television, extra chairs, even dishes and utensils. I get that trailer as light as possible. Weigh your rig loaded and ready for the road if possible. I also agree with others in that you should plan to balance those days of hard driving with a day or two off the road. Add some days to your itinerary if you can, and yes, be open to unexpected attractions that are not in your original plan. Yellowstone - specifically, make sure you stock up on food and other consumables before going in to the park. If you have to restock in YNP you'll find it very expensive and not a lot of things to choose from. Gas - nothing you can do about that as you'll likely be doing so much driving in the park that you'll have to bite the bullet. Be sure your furnace is in good working order, you have plenty of LP gas, and warm clothing. Nights at Yellowstone can be very cold, even in July. Case in point - we left YNP on the morning of July 5, 2004. It was 37 degrees. Enjoy & safe travels.

RE: Wanting to spend some money

Why a tongue scale? I know the approximate tongue weight and the capacity of the TV. . I know mine, too, however since my TV has a low payload figure I'll use it to confirm that I'm not overloading my Sequoia. If we're just heading out for the weekend I probably won't weigh the tongue but I always get a weight when on extended trips. The other reason is it's handy to have when trailer shopping. A friend of mine was in the market for a TT; his intended tow vehicle was a Jeep Liberty. Salesman said the trailer he wanted had a tongue weight well within the hitch capacity of the Liberty. Tongue scale said otherwise. No, salesman not happy with me. Friend wound up ditching the Liberty after all.

RE: Looking for someone to co-own the Alto Condo Safari R1713

Rent or find a good used unit. Far less headaches in the long run IMHO.

RE: Affirmed our choice

Our experience at the last couple of RV shows is the same - I'd like to think all the research and shopping we did before getting our Coachmen paid off.

1000 Islands/Alexandria Bay NY area CG's

Same as my other post - I'm planning a trip through upstate NY. DW has never been to the 1000 Islands. Looking for your top CG picks in this area with FHU is possible, WiFi and maybe a pool. All recommendations welcome, and thanks!

NY Finger Lakes CG's

One of the few good things about the short days and long nights of wintertime is planning for the upcoming camping season. We're considering spending some time in the Finger Lakes area - Hammondsport, Watkins Glen, etc. What are your favorite CG picks? We like FHU, WiFi and a pool is a plus, too. All suggestions welcome, and thanks!

RE: RV Park Recommendations / Overnights

Depends where in eastern PA you're looking, but as already pointed out not much will be open around here until April 1 or after. Otter Lake has been mentioned. Lazy K in Boyertown/Bechtelsville is open year round but the owner has a reputation for his temper (or lack of control of same). There is a KOA in the Jonestown area off of I-78 that is also open year round. Finally, you may want to look in to Pine Hill near Kutztown/Krumsville PA also right off of I-78. I've often seen rigs & other activity going on there even when they are not officially in season. You'll have better luck south of the Mason-Dixon Line before April 1. Happy hunting!

RE: best place to stay when visting yellowstone

For full hookups inside the park, it's Fishing Bridge or nothing. Lots of other CG's within the park but no utilities. Many here on the Forum don't like Fishing Bridge for its lack of ambiance. IMHO that's not the point - there is way too much to see in YNP to hang out in the CG for extended periods. Also, we found Fishing Bridge to be about as centrally located as you can get. You'll still rack up a lot of miles seeing even only the major tourist attractions. Make sure you have lots of food & supplies before you enter the park, as well as a good level of LP gas and warm clothing. Temps in the 30's at night even in July are not unusual. Enjoy & safe travels.

RE: Pondering about moving to a one-story home.

We're nowhere close to making a change in housing, but this is a question I've pondered for some time. I am convinced having the 2nd floor helps keep us in better physical shape and once we are not "forced" to get that exercise in a single-floor home I think that just accelerates the downward spiral in losing one's mobility. The one large, looming factor would be if one or the other of us has to use a walker, wheelchair, etc. Someday we'd like to exit the city, and like a few of you a property with some elbow room is on the "must have" list. Best of luck to you as you make your way through this transition.

RE: Making the best of a winter storm

Shoveling & snowplowing, mostly. A nap now & then, and a hot bath to soothe the sore muscles. Good meals. Kids are grown & gone, so it's just me & DW........... :W
