We have been there one time, and really liked it! There is a great trout stream that runs through the campground, but although it had been stocked just a few days before, none of the trout liked my bait!! It is not a big campground, but as I remember, it was very nice. I do remember that we had no cell service an AT&T, as we had a family problem that week and had to drive about 10 miles to get cell service.
Ibought one, and a pay by the month plan, while we were working down in Alabama. It works very well, and we had full 4G coverage in the area where we were(Eutaw, AL). I also worked with a network connected via Hugesnet, and my 4G wifi was much faster. Now that we are back at home, when my data and time expires, I will just leave it in the MH until we need it again. Then, all I have to do is pay for another month and we are set.
What really irritates me is the fee Virginia charges for pets in their state parks. The fee is so much for each pet, per day! They claim it is to pay for any damage the pet may do, and because they might leave poop around on the ground or chase a squirrel out to the end of their six foot lead. After seeing what a bunch of people can do to a park and the restrooms, they should let the pets in free, and charge for the kids. Kids or adults, I have never seen a pet cause as much damage as people do. Pets don't poop all over a restroom, and spread it on the walls, floors, and seats like I have seen people do. Pets don't leave dirty, smelly and runny diapers laying around or thrown into the woods either.
I think B's are great, and if I could afford it, might trade down from our small A. However, at our age, the small A we have is just more comfortable for us. As far as heating cheaply, just paint the top black, and park in the sun, and heavy quilts at night.
Virginia state Parks think their parks are really nice, and advertise same. What they really want is the RV'rs money. We can stay at a private RV park anywhere in Virginia lots cheaper than at the state parks.
I put one in our 1999 Hurricane. Bought it at Walmart. We had a 29' Hurricane, now have a 30' Gulf Stream. Saw a new 29' winnebago recently, it was beautiful. Also, the new Super Bs are small and really nice.
How do you think a car is heated?? the Car heater works off the heat generated by the engine, which runs on expensive gasoline. Many big riggers use heat generated by body fat, which is retained by thick blankets or sleeping bags. And yes, if you are driving anyway, you can heat a small class B camper with the engine heater. Unless it is very cold, we can keep our class a comfortable while driving with just the dash heat. Running engine while parked is a good way to get carbon monoxide poisoning.
Since 2010, trucker safety rules and hours have changed. The new 11 hour rule is making it extremely hard on solo drivers especially. They get paid by distance from load to unload, not by how many miles they actually have to drive. Delays, such as traffic problems, or having to wait for a load to be ready, really cuts into the pay check.
My point exactly. Car drivers you can and do see. Really hard to see what a truck driver is doing. Accept the fact that most are professional, but are affected much more by driving conditions such as heavy loads, wind gusts, bad roads, all while trying to watch out for idiots in both sides, and the ones in his blind spots directly behind and on both sides. Add to that driving a straight shift with up to 13 gears, limited power and acceleration, and is outnumbered 10 to one by the most important people in the world. Take a Defensive Driving course!!
One more time, If you see an OTR trucker texting while driving, report it! Authorities can, and will check test messages on his phone against his log book. It is strictly against the law, and safety demands it. Get time, company, license, location, and if possible, truck ID. Be a lot less acccidents and deaths if the law also applied to other drivers also.
Does anyone else notice that when cost-cutting occurs, the smallest, lowest costing, lowest paid expenses are the first to get cut?? If cutting started from the top down, wouldn't it be more effective?? eliminate one $100 item, then you can buy 5 $10 ones and still make a profit.
The solution is called "Defensive Driving".. If you see any OTR driver texting while he/she is driving, a report to DOT with the company name and a truck number, time of day, location, ect. will cost the driver his CDL and job. Also, talking on a phone without a headset, working on a computer, reading a map while driving may cause a suspension WITHOUT PAY!!. The least action may be a session with the company safety officer, whether your report is true or not. Major OTR companies are very strict about these things. Bear in mind, that other drivers can do whatever they want, drinking, distracted, speeding, with no consequence.
And yes, I am a deaf, blind senile old fart driving a Class A with a toad. And a DW that helps me to drive.
