RE: Colorado or Tenn campground advice wanted.

Roan Mountain State Park in TN. is as beautiful as any state park you could go to. the campground is along a small trout stream and if you luck out, you could get a spot that backs up to it. It is right at the base of 6000 foot Roan Mountain, where the Appalachian trail crosses it at Carvers Gap and in October it is beautiful. I highly recommend it. Jack L

Yellow jackets (the stinging ones)

When I am elected president my first law will be to banish all Yellow jackets from the face of the earth. I don't think a year has gone by when I have not been stung by those little buggars while doing my yard work, and today was my day for this year. Jack L

RE: Stabilizer Jacks

You get much better stabilization if they are not extended. I made up four boxes that I use under mine, and my 26 foot trailer seems rock solid with them plus a larger box for under the tongue jack JackL

RE: Florida Property

I can't help you on that, but we winter in Florida in our travel trailer, and I can tell you there are lots of places in the interior of central Florida where you can get two bedroom older small houses in the price range you are looking for. Many of them are on small lots. Anything near or on water will be much higher. Also there are newer subdivisions with low price two bedroom ones, but the catch with them is that you don't buy the land, but pay a yearly fee/club fee etc, and there are all kinds of rules you must abide by.

RE: Ocean Kayak for Fishing

Go onto "paddling.net" and on the forums go on "Advice, suggestions and general help" and ask, and you will get all kinds of good help. Also you can look in their classifieds and might find yourself a good used one. Jack L

RE: Pioneer 180CK

Wood I added one just to the right of the existing ones over the sink and in front of the couch. I have also added a bunch of coat hangers, as well as a new large medicine cabinet in the bathroom. I added another floor to ceiling one with drawers on the bottom, cabinets on top and an electronic charging station in the middle which I affixed to the wall studs just beside the door. We love our Pioneer, and with the zillion additions I have made, it is truly ours! Jack L

RE: Hip replacement question

I just feel like updating this thread. :B I saw my surgeon back on 6/12 and at that time decided to schedule the total hip replacement surgery on my left hip. The right side also has issues but it hasn't bothered me at all, so that side will be put off until issues arise. Surgery was scheduled for 8/6 (Wed.) which was the earliest date available. All went remarkably well. I also opted for a spinal, but was out of it before I had the spinal. I woke up in recovery probably an hour or so after the hour or so surgery. Was brought up to my room about an hour after waking up. Absolutely no pain, since they were giving me pain med. through an IV, only an occasional ache. The morning after surgery (Thur.), I was up walking around, using a walker. That afternoon I also walked down to their Physical Therapy room (using the walker) for a PT session. The second day I had 2 PT sessions, during the second one they had me walking around the ward using a cane. I was released that afternoon (Fri.). When I got home I used a walker to get from the car into the house, but since that time I have discarded the walker and have been using a cane. Since Sun. I've gone out a number of times, walking on the sidewalk in front of and on the side of the house (I'm on a corner). The recovery has been remarkably pain free and stress free. I wish anyone contemplating this surgery, the same experience I've had so far. Many thanks for the up date. I had my third year knee check up last month and the doctor took ex-rays of the hip and said that it definitely will need to be replaced in the future. He echoed exactly what you have described. He also said that I'll know it when the time comes for it. Luckily, it has not bothered me too much lately. I am glad you came through your replacement so well.

RE: Travel trailers without slides

Thanks for all the replies. The reason I asked is because I never see any newer ones with out slides. Ours is a fairly new 26 footer with no slides and it has everything the both of us would want in a travel trailer. Queen size bed, good size bathroom including a short tub, and naturally a shower. Not only a dinette, but a sofa that converts to another bed. A couple of years ago we just for the heck of it looked at a 26 footer with slides, and it had less room in it then ours and cost 10K more. Makes me wonder if the TT mfgrs are not trying to sell a bill of goods to newbies. Jack L

Travel trailers without slides

Are there any travel trailer manufacturers that still make trailers without slides? In the past few years it seems that there are no new ones in any of the RV dealers we have stopped at. Jack L

RE: kayaking, pass the ibuprofen

I have never kayaked. Think I may like this as new hobby. Am a very active 64 year old "cootess" with a 65 year old coot husband. Any hints? Sherry You can start at any age, but start easy. Before you jump in, try before you buy. Some hints: 1. can you swim ? If you can't, I would not advise paddling. Even if you have a PFD on you should be comfortable in the water. It is a wet sport. 2. Rent kayaks at a lake or ocean where they rent them and make sure you like them 3. If you are in Florida or a climate where it is warm the year round try a Sit on top , (SOT), but if you are in a climate where it gets cool or cold get a sit in (SINK) 4. Once you decide you are definitely going to get into the sport, don't jump for a high end one. Start with a el Cheapo one and you can alsways upgrade later. Rather then pay $300 for a piece of junk in the big box stores, take a look at a used better one on Paddling.Net or on craigs List. I have bought and sold canoes and kayaks on P.net for half of their original price. 5. Get the lightest weight paddle you can find for your budget. It makes a big difference in perfecting your paddle stroke and also won't tire you out like a big heavy cheap paddle will. 6. Don't forget; you will need a good rack system on your vehicle to transport your boats. Good luck, but keep in mind once you get hooked, there is no turning back! We have has some awesome wildlife viewing experiences in our kayaks and canoe from Alaska to the off shore Keys in South Florida Jack L

RE: kayaking, pass the ibuprofen

My wife and I did an eight miler yesterday also. It was in the "Great river Race" in Norwell, Mass. There were over a hundred boats. My time was one hour and four minutes and I won the 65 and over class and was the fifth kayak in overall. My wife not only won the female 65 and over class, but was third overall in the womens kayak class. She got two prizes We love both kayaking and canoeing Jack L

RE: Football practice

This old grandfather worries about not only your grandson, but all the other youngsters in grade school that are pushed to "beat each other up at" There are too many head injuries as well as heat stoke deaths that occur every year in this country to youngsters from football. jack L

RE: not my favorite spider

When we first moved to the south from Boston, they were all over the place, and it was a novelty for us to see one. Every so often we would find a jar in the boys bedroom with a live one in it. Needless to say we had to make some new rules about what creatures they could keep in the house! Jack L

RE: To drain or not to drain

I always drain mine between trips. First it is good to get all the sediment out and second if it is going to be quite a while between the next trip you will end up with some pretty gross water in there. Jack L

RE: feeling stupid sometimes

The other morning after breakfast, I started to put the orange juice in the dishwasher, and if I hadn't caught myself, I probably would have put the dirty glasses in the refrig. Jack L

RE: Jellystone Parks

Our children are all grown, but we use the River Bottom Farms Jellystone in SC every year for a canoe race we do, and I can't say enough about how nice a place it is. If we had children and were looking for a great place for them I would go there and a heart beat. The price is reasonable. and there are all kinds of activities for the children including a large swimming pool. It is kept very clean, and every site is on nice grass the price was thirty some odd dollars a night Jack L

I'm Jack...:B I shop at Home Depot or Diamond. Will the real Jack please stand up! Hey that is me and I am not mountain Jack even though I am at Elevation 3500 feet. I love Lowes right from when they first opened in NC. I used to have a contractors discount when I built my first house.

RE: Wood putty to hold awning screws in rotten wood ?

Use two part epoxy and if you have access to sawdust mix some in with it. West Systems Epoxy describes it in detail. If it was me, I would just buy the epoxy at your local hardware for about $5.00 It comes in a package with two dispensers that dispense the proper amount of hardener and resin, and then I would mix sawdust in with it. Make it thick enough so it wont run out. Jack L
