RE: Great truths about growing old

What old people talk about ! My wife and I were at our daughter and son in law's lake house over the weekend for a large family party followed by fireworks. I was sitting with my daughter's father in law, (Frank-age 85 and her mother in law, (Ann- age 83) Ann asked me how I liked my hearing aids and I told her I like them very much. She then said I like mine too, but I don't wear them any more. I asked her why and she said Frank hates his and doesn't wear them ever. He keeps the volume of the TV as high as it will go so he can hear it, but it is so loud that if I wear mine it hurts my ears and for most of the day we watch TV. So this is what old people talk about! Jack L

RE: new traffic law in tn

So.... They've created a law that will force you to break the law in order to keep the law so that others may break the law. BTW, I don't impede traffic and regularly drive at an elevated (but safe) speed if I'm in the left lane...but I can assure you that flying up behind me and flashing your lights will not help your case. X's 2 The minute I read that I figured the OP was one of those idiots that when I am passing another car and I am going the speed limit comes flying up behind me ten MPH over the limit, flashing his lights wanting me to go faster and get out of his way.

RE: Forest River Wildwood roof question

I have a 32BHDS and it has the rubber roof. Basic maintenance: Wash at least once a year.(Car wash brush, soap, and water) Inspect roof and sealant around vents at least twice a year. Touchup sealant as needed. Same on slides. Try not to bring in your side in with debris on top of the slide. What year is yours ? When we bought this, the salesman told us it was a new material that never needed maintenance, and said it wasn't rubber. That is why I was asking. Jack L

Forest River Wildwood roof question

If any one here has a 2016 Forest River Wildwood BHBS, can you tell me what the roof covering is made out of and what maintenance on it if any is required ? Also the same for the slide outs? Jack L

RE: Long Key vs Curry Hammock

We were at long key site 18 in March for 14 days. 1st time there. We left after two days and went to a commercial cg,twice the price and twice as much fun. 25 ft TT and we could hardly get the slide out.costant wind and we could practically eat off neighbors table. I wanted to kayak fish but no access except in the ocean. Not impressed with either lk or ch. Give me john p or Bahia Honda anytime over those two. But we are all different.you may love it. I hope you do!! You "wanted to kayak fish, but no access except in the ocean" !!!! Where do you normally fish ? We have 18 foot long kayaks, and we have launched from every site we have had over the years at Long Key Jack L

RE: Long Key vs Curry Hammock

We bounce back and forth between all four state parks during the five winter months, and my take on Curry Hammock is it has the absolute best sites. With that said, If I had to pick only between Curry Hammock and Long Key, I would take Long Key. At Curry Hammock for the past three years, one of the shower stalls in both the ladies and mens shower rooms has been out of order vs. a first class one at Long Key As other above have said, someone sold the state a sorry stinking abortion for the rest rooms at Curry, vs. first class ones at Long Key. For what it is worth, your site nine at Curry is a good one, and very much wanted during the winter months.. Lastly, you can't beat at Long Key, sitting back in a chair with your feet on the railing looking out over the Atlantic with a Margarita in your hand. jack L

RE: Long Key State Park questions

Odd numbers have the electric hook up on the right and even numbers on the left. (you shouldn't have a problem) Even with it on the left, I was able to reach it a few times since my surge protector gave me the extra foot I needed but I have an extension cord just for that reason. We have always been able to fit our truck in every site we have been in, and we have been in most of them. If you can't fit your vehicle into the site, there is a parking area down at the far end on the right just for that. We have a 25 foot travel trailer and I have written that both those sites are good Jack L

RE: Joke of the day...

I can still flip one open and light it at the same time. Learned that trick in basic training back in the 70's. My grandkids think it's cool, although I don't smoke anymore (and I'm hoping none of them do either). Memories: I used to do that also. Two fingers on the top and the thumb of the same hand on the bottom. Squeeze down and as the two fingers slide toward the back it pops open and then the front finger continues until it strikes the serrated wheel. It used to work like a charm until one day when I was showing off I ended up cutting my finger on the edge of the metal that surrounds the wick. Thank goodness I quite before I damaged my lungs !

RE: When should a hitch system be replaced?

That is a good question ! I am on my second trailer now with the same hitch, weight distribution bars and sway bar and I have wondered about the same. Jack L

RE: BEST Beach Front (or close to it) Camping on the East Coast

Long Key State Park in the Florida Keys, (in the winter months) The front or back of your RV is about 20 feet from the Atlantic Look to the left in the Am and see the sun rise, and look the right in the evening and see it go down Jack L

RE: Getting waste to flow up into a waste tote.

When I am putting gray water into my 25 gallon tote, I almost always have the same problem. I simply lay the drain hose on the ground between the Trailer outlet and the tote inlet. Then when the hose is full, pick up the end near the outlet and raise it higher then the tote inlet. This will cause what is in the hose to flow into the tote. Repeat it moving the raised portion toward the tote. Once the amount that was in the hose is in the tote, repeat the process and just keep doing it until your tote is full. A 42 gallon tote is way to big to handle ! Jack L

RE: Amazed and Disgusted

I've been in this park many times over the past 20 years, and never have I seen such behavior. In the past three days, I've watched folks dump fish cooker oil in a fire pit, not at their site, but in the vacant site next to them. Another guy washed his rig at his site, and yet another washed at a dump station. Another couple routinely walk through others camp sites. The final straw is when a "lady" walked her dog into my site to let him do his business. She was startled when I said something, apparently not having seen me sitting outside. But to her husband's credit, he came over and begrudgingly picked it up. Okay, rant over! It's beer time. I have said this many times and I'll get flamed I know, but RV parks should not allow pets. Dog owners walk their dogs many times a day on leashes that are not 6' max as required by most parks, they almost always use the extendable ones that allow dogs to lunge at you as you go by out to 12-15' or so - It has happened to me more than once. It also happens to other dog walkers who have to protect their little darlings from the big aggressive dogs or even the little aggressive dogs. And almost all dog walkers walk their dogs to other sites to do their business and most don't pick it up either. Now on to picking up poop. Based on the volume of poop bags that are taken from the dispensers in the park (very few) I am in and also watching dog walkers most poop is left where it falls and mostly not on the offending dog owner's site. This picture was taken right in front of a poop dispenser, I just didn't get it in the photo before I cleaned this mess up. This was right in front of one of the bath houses in the middle of the road. http://i.imgur.com/sTk1Vs8l.jpg "border=0" http://bit.ly/1CIRlV8]Poop Deposit Off of soap box. I need another cup of coffee and let the flames begin. I couldn't agree more ! You are completely right. Now lets be truthful dog owners: How many stay to the six foot leash rule? I figure the ones that do will reply, and all the other 99 percent won't even reply Jack L

RE: traveling the blue ridge parkway

As much as we love the Blue ridge Parkway, (we live right near it and ride our bikes on it); You might not enjoy riding the entire length. We made that mistake once and never again. The speed limit for most of it is 45MPH and there are some places where it is only 35. The best part, and the most scenic is the section Between Julian Price Lake and Craggy gardens. Make sure you make the side trip, (it is free) up to the top of MT Mitchell which is the highest mountain east of the Mississippi River. Another good take in is Grandfather Mountain, (which costs) If you like hiking the Tanawa trail near the viaduct is a great one. You can do portions of it from pull offs along the Parkway or the entire way leaving from the campground at Price Lake. Make a stop at the Mineral Museum, (free) at Spruce Pine, which is small but shows all of the minerals native to the area. Jack L

RE: Amazed and Disgusted

I can feel for you ! Unfortunately, that seems to be the norm these days. We winter in the Florida Keys and bounce back and forth between the four state parks there. We see what you are describing on a daily basis. What we see the most of is the dog owners walking their dogs to other people sites to let them do their business. jack L

RE: Mosquito Control

Get a Thermacell. We winter in the Florida Keys and camp in the Everglades National Park as well and wouldn't be without one. We have been using one for many years now and believe me they work. You can sit outside at your picnic table all night long and a mosquitoe or no-seeum won't come near you. They are good for about a fifteen foot diameter circle We stopped using deet and Avon skin so soft as soon as we realized they worked so good. We found that at home here in the NC mountains, it works great to keep all the pesky little flying things away too. jack L
