RE: Help!! need some easy mexican dishes

About the easiest one I know is Fiesta Chicken in a crockpot. Google it for details. Many variations, but basic gameplan is to put four fresh or frozen chicken breasts in a crockpot with cans of drained black beans, drained corn, chopped onion, green pepper if desired, and a half cup of salsa. You can vary the quantities to suit your tastebuds, and double easily. Cook about three hours on high. Mix in a chunk of cream cheese shortly before serving and stir to melt it in. Serve - as is like a stew, over rice or tortilla chips, or roll up in tortillas. Shredded cheddar makes a nice topping. I like to add Mes. Dash Chipotle seasoning (salt free,)

RE: Just got home from snow birding last week and...

Come on out to the coast where it's warmer. We're taking Raylene camping for the first time (just one night) this week. After this winter, though, we're making long range plans to move to Florida!

RE: Canadian Maritime Provinces Tips

We really enjoyed the Alexander Graham Bell Museum in Baddeck on Cape Breton Island. Plenty of RV parking on site, and several nearby campgrounds for overnight. Some people use the town as a base to drive the Cabot Trail.

RE: Job memories

A singer? And one of America's highest paid entertainers, according to the recent Parade magazine "What we earn" article.

RE: Happy Dogs From This Weekend

Those sure are happy doggie faces! Raylene's going on her first overnight in the Lab Cab with us this week.

RE: Help a newbie choose

I like the Sprinters as an RV platform. I worry about costs of keeping them serviced, especially since I can do most of my own work on gas-powered, domestic vehicles. Yes, it would be nice to limit the outlay to 4 figures, and, it looks like there are some nice, older ones in that range. If your budget is under $10,000, you may be better off looking for a basic empty van long enough for your kayak (not an RV) in good condition and doing the conversion yourself with some simple elements.

RE: dry camping in outer banks

Ocean Waves is another commercial campground with hookups on the Banks. We camped on Ocracoke Island (ferries run back and forth from Hatteras) at the National Park Service campground (the only one you can reserve ahead). No hookups but they do have dump station, bathrooms and cold showers. Good point about not being on the ocean sand. You are camping behind the dunes, and it can get very hot, humid, and buggy when there is not a strong breeze. But on the other side of the dunes, the wide beaches are spectacular.

RE: Before everyone loved Windows XP, they hated it

X4. Windows XP worked fine for me from day one until I retired that beat-up laptop years later. The Vista system on another laptop we brought was a disaster from day one and only got worse.

RE: Is Muley Point Road suitable for a Class C?

Great images, trikepilot!

RE: Help a newbie choose

Ours does have the layout you describe because it has fixed twin beds. Never tried sliding in a kayak, but seems likely you could. The two back doors swing open all the way. Many newer Bs have sofa beds across the back, and some do have bathrooms installed there. I guess you already know it's often hard to find a used B at a reasonable price.

RE: Family rescused at sea

Their blog Rebel Heart (both write parts of it) offers some insights into how this all happened, a combination of bad judgement, inexperience, and lack of funds. Very condensed version: moved onto their boat years ago because they couldn't afford both rent and boat costs, chose the boat. The husband's dream was to circumnavigate. As the second child was due, they were living on the boat in Mexico, wife not enjoying it, and rented a cheap apartment for a short time around the delivery date. The wife wrote that people asked why they weren't returning to San Diego for the birth, and she said they had no money for plane tickets, no home there to return to, no other options but to stay the course. Once the infant was born, it was even more difficult to manage life on a boat, but they took off. She wrote a lot about how hard everything was, how happy her husband was, how unhappy she was, making mistakes, realizing she was stupid to have done this, and so on. The husband's last parts show that making his first ocean crossing, especially with tiny children, turned out to be much more challenging than he expected.

RE: "Old fashioned State Parks?

We have found that most forest service campgrounds are every bit as clean as the updated state parks. Some even have paved sites and electric and some we've run into have full hookups. We don't need hookups but we were surprised at how many forest service ones now have it. Public parks are always our first choice. X2 on public parks. The best of all worlds for me Some Corps of Engineers parks, also. We stayed at the Abiquiu Riana lake campground in Georgia O'Keeffe country north of Santa Fe, NM last October. Beautiful campsites, facilities and scenery.

RE: Today's Ben & Jerry's free cone day

Went and got our free cones. It was fun...no line, but a steady stream of folks stopping in, with a local mayor and others serving as volunteer scoopers. Lots of tips & donations for a good cause. Happening at all their locations around the country today until 8 p.m.

RE: Class B resale value

Seems to be true. Several times I've seen our model/year for sale at a higher price than we paid three years ago. Of course, that was an asking price. No way to know the final outcome.

Today's Ben & Jerry's free cone day

In our area, free ice cream cones today, noon to eight p.m. - tips and donations are given to Hope for the Warriors. Anybody camping at Emerald Isle NC this week for Spring Break will find the store at 8204 Emerald Drive (58). Enjoy! (Disclosure: I have no connection to either organization, but I do like ice cream.)

RE: Anyone taken Alaskan Ferry from Anchorage to Bellingham???

Synergy, hope you will post a trip report on your ferry experience with your service dog. I'd be very interested. We're gradually introducing Raylene to our small RV. She's been with us for six weeks, and goes everywhere with me. First overnight will be next week at a campground near our home. Then will visit friends and later attend a regional Leisure Rally in Virginia for a few nights each time. Hope to take her up to the Gaspe Peninsula in July for about a month.

RE: RV friendly diesel before the Keys

I usually look at the free Gas Buddy app for the Fla. City area and go to the cheapest. (By the way, for Florida trips of any length: We got a Winn Dixie card and earn points on their fuel rewards program every time we buy groceries. Adds up fast, and you get credits on your fuel cost, at mostly Shell stations all over the state.)
