RE: OHIO State Parks to get upgrade

One of my first camping memories with my parents was at Hueston Woods SP in Ohio. I was 6 or 7 years old at the time. And the memory? That's still the coldest water I've ever been in that didn't have ice on it. Now I live much closer to East Fork SP. In addition to the regular CG which has a mixture of dry and partial hook up sites, they have a couple of group camp sites including one with a corral for groups that bring their horses.

RE: RV Park near Yellowstone

Here's the scoop on all the CGs inside the park. There are 12 of them scattered along the grand loop road.

RE: Tom Johnson CG Marion.

It happens all the time, not just this thread, but adding two more letters for state would let the rest of us know which of the 29 Marions you're talking about. Since we all travel, we're always looking for a good tip, or a bad warning.

RE: As seen on TV

"As seen on TV" with a price of $x.xx plus shipping and handling (which is NOT quoted), is a non-starter with me. Especially if I can get a second one just for paying additional shipping and handling.

RE: Another beginner with RV wanderlust...

Welcome to the forum and the RVing lifestyle. Everyone on this forum was brand new at one time. And probably new to the lifestyle as well. I've been RVing and using this forum for over 10 years and still learn something new almost every time. We all make our own mistakes, but I try not to repeat mine and, since nobody knows me, I'll freely admit when I do. But if you make a real doozy, tell us about it - it could be original. :)

RE: Jackson Wy mud

GOSH! Who would have guessed? Cute. I'm merely pointing out that the town of Jackson is on the southern end of a valley (Jackson Hole) that runs between the Teton Range and the Gros Ventre Range from Hoback Junction to the southern entrance to Yellowstone. A distance of 75 miles. It made a difference to the early pioneers in wagons.

RE: Where to buy a spare tire for E450?

I keep my mounted spare in the rear storage area. If I hit something hard enough to cause that wheel to come through the wall, I'm already dead. BTW, I bought mine from the RV dealer where I bought the 'C'.

RE: Scottish Family Adventure

Several years ago I spent about 6 weeks touring England, Scotland and Wales. I got used to driving from the wrong side of the car on the wrong side of the road :) But the most dangerous thing I found was as a pedestrian. On this side of the pond, its natural to look to the left as you step off a curb. Over there, the cars in the near lane are coming from the right. One other difference is the use of the horn. In GB if you hear a horn, something bad is about to happen. Over here, we also use them for doorbells and saying 'Hi'. Sometimes, just for fun. But you never know. One more thing. If you're a fan of Haggis, you're out of luck. What you put in haggis, we throw in the garbage.

RE: Carpet cleaners

I use one of These while on the road. It doesn't do a perfect job, but it works on solid flooring as well as carpet, takes up very little storage space, its cheap and doesn't require electric.

RE: Jackson Wy mud

By all means, avoid the town of Jackson! I love the place and I stay at the RV park behind the Virginian. In that pic it looks crowded. Make a stop at The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar. The bar stools are made out of saddles. Good burgers. By the way, the area is called Jackson Hole because its in the valley between two mountains.

RE: Pigeon Forge, Run down and dirty?

Run down and dirty? No. Brightly lit 24/7 tourist trap lined with stores selling made-in-China glassware with "Smokey Mountain National Park" printed on it? Yes. Several years ago, I flew a Cessna down from Cincinnati to Sevierville Airport to visit my former flight instructor. He told me to navigate to Knoxville, look to the SE and follow the lights of Pigeon Forge (he called it Pigeon Fleece) and it would take me right over the end of the runway. It worked.

RE: Satellite Radio - Recommendations?

I bought an XM receiver that fits into a wired holster when they first came out and before they merged with Sirius. At the time, you could buy a lifetime subscription and I did. I have holsters in the RV, Toad and Daily driver as well as a boom box that also plays CDs. I haven't listened to over the air radio since then. The only place that I couldn't get a signal was about halfway thru Canada on my way to Alaska, due to the curvature of the earth. It sure is nice to not have to hunt down another station a couple of times a day when traveling.

RE: Travelling the Southwest

Check Weatherbase. They can't tell you what it will be, but they'll tell you what is has been by month over several years for lots of cities/towns within each state - and its free. If nothing else, you'll know what to pack.

RE: Have you gotten a call or text from 202-506-9060???

My wireless home phone has a screen that shows me the name and phone number of the caller before I ever answer it - if I've entered them in my directory. If the screen says "unknown", its either a crook or a sales person cold calling and trying to hide their identity. Either way, they pay the connection fee and get nothing for it.

RE: Easter Bunny - Male or Female ?

I only see him/her when I've had too many beers. By then I either forget to ask or forget the answer. :)

RE: Any good ideas what to do with old propane bottle?

There's a place near me that has the equipment to fill my on board tank on my 'C' and also has portable tanks that have been re-certified for swap out. Not surprisingly, there are no nearby homes, but lots of "No Smoking" signs.

RE: Bathroom Door Lock?

My 'C' doesn't have a lock on the door. But since I travel by myself, if somebody opens the door while I'm in the bathroom, I have bigger problems than embarrassment. :)

RE: Handicap Parking

My Mom had bad hip joints in later life and her Doctor issued a handicapped card for her to place on the dashboard. When I would visit, I often used her car to make a grocery run. I took the card out of the window when I did. Her car wasn't handicapped.

RE: Roads Most Traveled

I don't know. Some of those Map Police can be pretty mean. :)

RE: Cincinnati to DC

I live in Cincinnati and I've driven to Cherry Hill Park, but not recently enough to tell you where the potholes are. Maybe somebody has driven it in the last week, but even that isn't 100% reliable. Pothole season rears it ugly head about this time every year.
