RE: delaware sales tax

5 states with no sales tax. Alaska, Montana, Oregon, New Hampshire and Delaware.

RE: E 450 V 10 MPG

Most RVs wouldn't get 10 MPG on the way down if it fell out of a tree. Just remember that you're driving a house.

RE: Are you a fan of buying at RV Shows?

The models at RV shows have every available option installed. Go look, but leave your checkbook at home.

RE: CW $59 install (read the fine print)

Back in the day, a friend of mine bought a Sunbeam sports car. The Alpine model was easy to work on, but the Tiger model had such a big engine that you had to pull the motor to install a new lower fan belt pulley. The installation price "varied".

RE: Charleston, SC Campground?

I've stayed at the Mt. Pleasant KOA a couple of times. Its off of US 17 about 8 miles northeast of the bridge. Nice roomy sites and far enough off of busy US 17 to avoid road noise. Next to a huge lake. The entrance road is on the left about 8 miles from the bridge. FHUs including cable and WIFI. BTW, if you miss it and drive your 'C' with a toad attached over the bridge into downtown Charleston during rush hour, you won't enjoy it. Don't ask how I know. If you're interested, visit Patriot's Point in Charleston. Home of the WWII Aircraft Carrier Saratoga. Its a museum now. Not many of them left.

RE: Grand Tetons NP: Grizzly Closes Road

That's probably the single biggest problem that the Rangers face every year. People that think the wild animals are "pets". I watched some guy walk up to a full grown male elk during breeding season. He walked up from behind, easily within arm's length, just to take a picture. Amazingly, the elk continued to graze, ignoring the idiot. They walk among us.

RE: Extended Service Plans/Extended Warranties

As a general rule, if an extended service plan is a good deal for the seller, its a bad deal for me. At least read the fine print. Often, the most expensive repairs are excluded from coverage.

RE: I don't look good naked anymore.

I am NOT overweight. I'm under tall.

RE: place to stay in florida for a week or two in jan.

Since you're traveling without reservations and going at a time when hardly anyone wants to go where its warm... Try the interior of Florida away from either coast and away from Orlando. Good luck. My parents found nice RV parks near Brooksville and Spring Hill. Near, but not on the gulf.

RE: Highway 50 through Nevada...or Interstate 80?

Wikipedia has an excellent article on US 50. It runs from Ocean City, MD. to Sacramento, CA. I've driven parts of it. Not a lot of RV parks. Like many of the "mother" roads, it tends to follow the railroad tracks. In my home town, Cincinnati, it runs right through downtown Cincinnati and is designated a "Truck Route".

RE: Would someone please explain fantasy football to me.....

Of course its gambling. Its no different than state run lotteries. But at least in the state run lotteries, you know the odds because you know how many numbered balls are in the hopper. When you're betting on a person's performance, you introduce a lot of unknowns, not the least of which is who's going to take a dive.

RE: Geek practical jokes::::

I've been using it so long that somehow I think I must be made up mostly of dihydrogen monoxide? :h What is it? I hope you're kidding. H2O - water.

RE: Retire: give it all up at 58 and RV?

I bailed in 1998 at the age of 52, because I could afford it. The only thing I didn't think about - health insurance. Individual policies are VERY expensive. Shop first.

RE: Help Me Find GOOD Fresh Water Hoses

I just buy gallon jugs of distilled water for anything that goes inside of me. Drinking water, cooking, ice cubes, coffee, and tooth brushing. They're cheap and available everywhere, and no funny taste. The CG water is for my outside.

RE: Please help...my burgers are tasteless

I use "Cavender's All Purpose Greek Seasoning." You can find it in the spice isle in your grocery, and isn't expensive. A mixture of 13 spices. A nice blend. I use it on beef, pork and chicken. The specific spices are listed on the back. I suspect the MSG does most of the work.

RE: Questions about Tractor Supply

There's a Tractor Supply about 2 miles from my home. They carry Wrangler Jeans in Extra Elephant sizes, and I can buy nuts, bolts, screws, etc. in quantities less than the 1,000 count blister packs in the big box stores. It reminds me of the old time hardware stores that have, sadly, gone out of business. I used to go to one about 20 miles from home that still had a wall of small drawers with all kinds of small parts. I could walk in there and ask "Do you have one of these?" because I didn't even know what to call it. They always did, and could walk right to it.

RE: Harrah's Tunica?

Garmp1, I couldn't tell you. A friend of mine and I drove down and parked the MH in the parking lot of the Casino Magic Hotel. We had just finished driving the length of Mississippi playing golf for a week along the Robert Trent Jones golf trail. The rooms, like everything else, were first class, cheap and included breakfast and lunch buffets every day.

RE: Harrah's Tunica?

For another 250 miles, you can go to Biloxi. The 30 mile stretch from Biloxi to Bay St. Louis has 6 CGs and 11 Casinos within 3 miles of US90 and you're right on the gulf. BTW, the casinos are all built on barges and the hotels they're attached to are on land. That's how they got around the gaming laws in Mississippi. Technically, they aren't IN Mississippi - they're off shore. And the gaming income makes everything else cheap. All you can eat buffets that include lobster and steak. One of the showrooms had Michael Flatley's "Lord of the Dance". Cheap admission and free drinks. Matter of fact, drinks are free in the Casinos as well. They like drunk gamblers. :)

RE: RV Park in Myrtle Beach and Charleston

You may want to consider renting a car when you get to both places. The "Grand Strand" (Myrtle Beach) is 30 miles long. And Charleston has many tourist attractions. You'd be walking along a very busy highway to get to them. You don't want to drive a MH in downtown Charleston.

RE: Alaska Trip

I used Milepost. Crossed the border at Sweetgrass, MT. Stayed on the main highways thru Alberta, British Columbia and Yukon Territory, to Cooper Landing south of Anchorage to visit a friend, then north to Fairbanks, AK. Home pretty much the same route. In Canada, I stayed in CGs with hookups and found some that had 20A and 50A but no 30A, so take dog bones for everything. Take your time. Mostly two lane roads with lots of potholes. Not a very long road repair season up there. And take some Canadian cash. Don't expect people 30 or 40 Kilometers north into Canada to know the exchange rate. Make up a cheat sheet for converting to Metric weights and measures. And take a camera. Its beautiful country.
