RE: Favorite things to do at skidaway state park

Tybee Island - if you like seafood and lots of it, visit the Crab Shack. If you leave hungry it's your own fault.

A bunch of stuff we're thankful for......

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. It's been an "up & down" year for us but we are ending on a couple of definite highs: DD was just promoted to Petty Officer 1st Class! DS graduates from Ohio Technical College in 3 weeks and has a guaranteed job if he wants it. The rest is details. Enjoy & safe travels, everyone.

RE: Heating the trailer in the winter

I also use a small 110v ceramic heater as described in several replies above. I use it to heat the TT when at home and I'm working or cleaning inside and save the LP for when we're on the road.

RE: Our last camping trip.....

9 years out of an OEM battery is mighty impressive, and very unusual.

RE: Dental implants

I just finished having two molars replaced with implants. The first question I'd ask is how much is your husband willing to spend? I dropped $4600 on just those two, not including the surgery to removed the cracked molars and the surgery to install the posts. As to your insistence on a prosthodontist who specializes in this kind of procedure, YES!

RE: Thinking out loud

Yes, FLOORPLAN!! How you plan to use your TT now may be different than when the family was along. Once you've determined which floorpan will work best look at all the manufacturers that offer what you want. I made a spreadsheet to do an apples-to-apples comparison of the 4 or 5 trailers that made our short list. In the end we went with the shortest & lightest TT that had all the elements we were looking for. Take your time, happy shopping and good luck! Oh, and a lot of RV salespeople have no idea how to handle an educated shopper..... :E

RE: Near-freezing temperatures

We just returned from a long weekend getaway in Connecticut. Nighttime lows were 26-28 degrees. Ran an electric heater with a fan plus the LP furnace providing a blast of heat now & then to keep things warm everywhere. I carry a heated city water hose and the CG had a heat tape installed on the water hookup. At 32 degrees (or a couple degrees below that) you should be fine inside. Fill your freshwater tank, though, as others have said.

RE: When is a good time to go camping in UP Mi

Summer weather is June-July-August, it can start getting cool and wet by September. If going into the woods, later is better, as more of the blood sucking insects that feed on you for reproduction will have completed that part of their life cycle. They are most hungry early in summer. U.P. for me means the Lake Superior shore and iron mining country around Marquette, so I don't have references for other parts of the U.P. In Marquette I like the Travel Park close to the Superior shore. All of the above. Summer insects can be relentless, even with repellant. Lived in Marquette for two years in the early '80's - make sure you get real pasties when in the UP. I know you have your areas picked out but if you've not already been there, Tahquamenon Falls - don't miss it. And from Munising take an excursion by boat to see Pictured Rocks in the early evening to sunset. Spectacular.

RE: 144 days in a 18 foot box

Fabulous trip report - you have done what DW & I envision doing maybe five years from now. Glad to hear you had a good time and travelled safely. Well done!

RE: Road Trip Playlists?

One CD that ALWAYS goes with us is the sound track for the animated motion picture "Cars." Randy Newman got it right!

RE: Pennsylvania RV campgrounds

To pasusan - thank you for posting the picture of the PA Grand Canyon, otherwise known as Pine Creek Gorge. Granted, not on the scale of the Arizona Grand Canyon but still impressive in its own right, especially when you remember that the Appalachian Mountains were at one time higher than the Rockies or the Alps. To those who visit us here in the Northeast - do NOT underestimate our mountain roads!! An 8 percent grade is an 8 percent grade whether it is here or in Colorado, so your due diligence is required. To the OP - consider Canyon Country CG west of Wellsboro, PA. It is only a mile or so if you want to walk/hike to Pine Creek Gorge. Not a big place and not fancy, but they will have a site large enough for your unit. Nice people run the place. In town is the Wellsboro Diner. Excellent food (albeit diner food) at very reasonable prices. Take a side trip to Sabinsville PA and the Patterson Maple Farms. Maple syrup is in production only January through March but the product is equal to any maple syrup that comes out of New England. In addition to three kinds of syrup they also offer maple cream (for coffee) and maple mustard.

RE: Final Plans

Agree with ro_sie. Nobody likes to confront their own mortality but at the same time there is still life to live. I know whereof I speak. Prayers and good thoughts for you and your family.

RE: Do they ever enforce who parks where in rest stops?

At rest stops in PA it is rather rare to see vehicles on the "wrong" side, and when I have it wasn't an issue anyway because neither side was even close to capacity. New York state? Don't get me started.

RE: Retirement - In Place or relocating ?

We will be looking to relocate when I totally retire for good (part-time motor coach driver). Haven't picked out a place yet but it will either be a little north and west of here still in PA or someplace in the south (not Florida). There really will be nothing keeping us where we are now.

RE: November Camping in Maryland/Southern PA

Check out Gettysburg campgrounds. I believe some are open year round. Lots of great things to do within a two hour drive too. This was my thought, too, Of the five or six CG's in the area, I believe Artillery Ridge or Round Top may be open year round. Good luck, and let us know how you make out.

RE: Wife happy with the things you buy for the trailer?

I guess I am lucky, mine never complains about anything I buy for the outdoors.... I do not complain about her buying shoes and boots either, so long as she does not try to bring over 2-3 pair on our trips. Same here. The best thing I bought for the TT is the power tongue jack, because she does the hitching/unhitching when in the campgrounds. She loves it.

RE: The View from Your Trailer -- let's see 'em!

Add me to the list of those who've just now figured out how to post pics........ But here is my offering, from Tioga County, PA. http://i.imgur.com/WjKvXE9l.jpg

RE: Receiver hitch won't latch. Help!

If all of the above fails, inspect the coupler (on the trailer tongue) in to which the ball nests. It is only stamped sheet steel. I had a similar experience a couple of years ago. I discovered that my wife had backed the car in to the trailer tongue a few weeks prior and had put a small dent in the coupler. It was just enough to keep the pin from latching. Had to grind & pound out the dent from the inside. Good luck, and let us know how this turns out.
