RE: Laziest dog in the world!

The turtle is obviously his toad.

RE: Camping in the Everglades in April

Collier Seminole was closed for renovation this year - maybe someone else can comment who has been there recently about the sites now. Unless you are planning on dates that maybe fall around Easter or on weekends, you probably won't need reservations at Flamingo in April, but you can check the reservations system online and find out how full it is. A lot of peope skip it because it's a long drive down there and back, and until a few years ago, the sites weren't electric or reservable. I love the place. Only (?) - or one of the few - places where gators and crocs coexist in same water. Bugs can be bad in south Florida anytime of year, or sometimes not. Come prepared.

RE: finally old enough!

Last time I did the math, we had saved more than $200 in a few years of free admission and campground discounts with the geezer pass. Army COE CGs are the best - cheap to begin with, then discounted 50%.

RE: Camping in the Everglades in April

If I remember correctly, the ranger activities wrap up in March, I guess because it gets hot from April on. But now that Flamingo has electric, you can fire up the AC as needed. I sort of doubt you need res then, but you could check online to see if it was filling. There's a marina at Flamingo for launching your kayaks.

RE: I just made the best fast track/easy gumbo

Making me hungry and I just ate an hour ago. Sounds great.

RE: What RV Goodies Ya Getting For Christmas?

My partner in crime doesn't know it yet, but Santa's bringing new sturdy camp chairs that will be easier to get out of than low-slung chairs after the 12/29 hip replacement.

RE: Anything worth visiting in Northwestern New Mexico?

Chaco Culture National Historical Park is well worth the trip over rough roads, and they now offer reservations for the campground. It's a UNESCO World Heritage site (other such sites are the Pyramids in Egypt, Taj Mahal in India, etc.) and has some of America's most important pre-Columbian structures. The rangers offer free walking tours by day and Night Sky programs at the Observatory. If you like stars, Chaco is far away from lighted population centers. Aztec Ruins National Monument or Salmon Ruins were outliers, part of the Chacoan world linked by roads, and can give you a taste of what Chaco offers if you are short on time or don't want to take the RV on the road to Chaco.

Gas or diesel?

RE: Onion Rings

Mmmm. I could swear the scent of bacon and onion is wafting out of the iPad. Wondering what that sauce is...I'm thinking slightly spicy.

RE: I'm a Peter Pan-aholic....

Ahhh.... for 3 hours, I was a kid again, certain I could vanquish pirates and save fairies :-) Alyson Williams was FANTASTIC as Peter Pan - maybe the best ever?? Sadly, Christopher Walken was a less-than-enthusiastic (IMO) Captain Hook. Dustin Hoffman and Cyril Richard still are the best :-) Boy, we really are kindred spirits because I thought Williams really was the absolute best ever. That young woman has a great future ahead. Also missed Cyril Ritchard (the ultimate campy Captain H) or Dustin the whole time. I love Christopher Walken's acting usually, but it seemed like he was phoning it in.

RE: Florida state parks B class in tent sites

The park is closing most of those tent sites in 2015 due to erosion, which would suggest to me the rangers may not entertain variations any more to the minimal use they're still allowing. Someone may tell you on the phone it's OK, but when you get there, you might find out another ranger won't permit a vehicle four feet longer than posted in the site description. Those tiny tent sites are VERY visible and exposed to passing traffic. The rangers there have to turn away people almost daily due to being full and run a tight ship. One solution is to bring a tent along and be ready to use it if necessary (there is an overflow vehicle parking area at the other end of the CG.) We've camped four times in recent years at Long Key and it's our favorite (very hard to get a winter site even when booking 11 months ahead to the second, and I mean that literally.) Sometimes you get lucky or get a few cancelled days. You can also try just showing up (with aPlan B in mind. No free boondocking sites in the Keys.) One Plan B suggestion around the same price as a state park - if you are willing to dry camp (no pets or generators) - is Big Pine Key Fishing Lodge further south, which has a section where they allow tents and vans. No atmosphere, just a parking lot in the center of the RV area at $40+ a night. Though it is a nice facility and little Key Deer roam around.

RE: Naigra Falls

X2 Four Mile Creek State Park on US side. Right on Lake Ontario, wooded, very popular. Note not full hookups but there are electric sites, water spigots for filling your tank, and a dump station. Very close to Ft. Niagara which has costumed interpreters, museum, musket firing, etc. right by the lake. It is about 15 minutes north of the falls, straight shot on the Robert Moses Parkway. A bonus is that if you show a dated New York State Park campground hang tag at the Niagara Falls State Park, you park there free. (Saves $10). The NF State Park has had a multi-million $ renovation the past couple of years and looks great. We were there in July (2014.) From Parking Lot #1, you have an easy walk across the Rainbow Bridge if you want to take photos from the Canada side looking back toward the US side. While in that area, it's fun to go to nearby Lockport on the Erie Canal. Canal boat rides, museum, newly-restored locks, towpath for walking along the canal.

RE: New Prescription Diet woes

The pumpkin helped Raylene for a short bout of diarrhea recently along with a little plain yoghurt. When she had a prolonged vomiting episode in June, the plain boiled chicken & rice wasn't helping, and I think that she might have had a chicken sensitivity issue in the first place. The vet suggested Royal Canin Anallergenic kibble and the vomiting stopped immediately. Now she's on RC Selected protein, potato venison, and doing well.

RE: Do you use bone health supplements ?

When my young Lab arrived in February from Dogs for the Deaf, they had her on two chewable Joint Health square tabs a day, and I've continued that. I get them from Drs. Foster & Smith. She likes them - I give her one as an hors d'ouevre while I'm getting her food bowl ready.

RE: BIscuits and Gravy Casserole

I had to quit reading some of these posts because of the chest pains. I wonder if Heinz makes cream gravy in glass jars? (Their beef or mushroom gravy is surprisingly good. I brown four ground sirloin patties and some sliced onions, then simmer it for a while in the gravy.)
