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.

RE: Gettysburg Battlefield Resort - Opinions?

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.

RE: Financial advisors

Or you could go to one of those 'commission only' brokers, who will become your 'personal friend' but maybe direct you to investments that create the highest level of commission for him, not necessarily the best investment for you! X2 Buyer beware.

RE: Anyone here prepaid for a funeral?

My parents bought plots 20 years ago and prepaid their funeral costs about 10 years ago. When my father passed in December '13 it made things much easier for my mother (who was in no condition to make any decisions) and us, as we would have not known anything about my dad's wishes. I don't expect funeral costs to go anywhere but up in a big way as we "boomers" begin to pass. JMHO you'd have to find one heck of mutual fund returning on your investment at a rate that will outpace those rising costs.

RE: 24-28' Bunkhouse... Any love/hate opinions??

We've been in a 28' BH with no slides since 2000 - love it with or without kids. Like others who've replied to this post, we find that size range gives us a greater range of sites in most CGs. Our master bedroom is also separated by a curtain rather than a a wall/pocket doors. That, along with a 101" width and light colored interior decor give the unit an open feeling. Our kids are grown now (one is gone and one will be leaving in just over 4 months). We have always found uses for the empty bunks!! I think the only change we'd make if we were to do it over again is to find a model that has the bunks open the entire length. It can we awkward for a nearly 6-foot teen to get in to one of the "cave" bunks!

RE: Harrisburg RV Show

Agree with above reply to this post. Overall, I'll give it three yawns. We're Good Sam so it was $5 a piece for us to get in. The Hershey show in September is still the great-granddaddy of RV shows around here.

RE: Wisconsin Campgrounds

Near Milwaukee? Ummm....well. Jellystone is nearest (avoid if possible). If this reply is referring to the Jellystone in Caledonia, I could not agree more. Nice park, but not a good value for the money, especially if you do not have children with you.

RE: Getting across western PA

DOES NOT AVOID MOUNTAINS if that is your intention. Majority are from Bedford to New Stanton on T/P (for your trip)-- they are north as well, and run clear over to the PA/OH state line. I've done both routes you suggest and the above statement is right on the money. Turnpike has a long but certainly do-able grade over Sideling Hill. I-80 has a similar stretch (may be a bit longer) approaching the exit for Rt. 153/Penfield, PA. That said, I would take the route that is more direct to your destination. Yes, I-80 has truck traffic but it is nothing like we see around here in I-78.

RE: Llightweight TT to tow with Toyota Sequoia-Passport 2890RL?

This will be our 7th season towing with our '08 Sequoia. Our TT is about 6,000 lbs. loaded for a trip and the Sequoia is more than up to the task. As others have noted be sure to keep tabs on the tongue weight so you don't exceed the payload limit. Enjoy & safe travels.
