RE: Fall trips near Northern VA? Lake Anna? Any ideas?

Get your own dog,preferably a Labrador retriever and go any ways.If you're former GF is on Facebook,post lot's of pictures of you and the dog having fun.A great campground on the water is Goose Point on Philpott Lake.Some sites are right on the water.They have electric hookups,a bat launch and a small beach.

RE: Campground Recommendation Mount Rushmore Area

We stayed at Rafter J and it was nice. But if Custer State Park campgrounds had electric,we would have stayed there.Some of them have electric now so that would be my choice.

RE: Outer Banks in Late October

Frisco National Park campground is also open. No hookups, but nice large sites.You can walk to the beach and there is a grocery store gas station across from the entrance.We were there in May and loved it. If you like history,I would recommend the Life Saving Museum in Rodanthe.October can actually be nice with the gulf stream bringing warm water north.

RE: In search of overnight stop in IA or MO?

I assume you will be coming south on I-35. I would suggest Wallace Sate park. It has electric hookups and not far of I-35. While we haven't stayed in this particular park, we have stayed at 3 other Missouri State park Campgrounds and they were all very nice and reasonable in price.Last year we stayed at Pershing State park and it was $19 a night with electric.

RE: Sunset Beasch resort VA?

They completely did the campground in the past year or so. I have never stayed there but drove past a few times.

RE: National Park Trip

WE live near Reading,Pa.Last May we went to Yellowstone in May. Great trip. Here are a few recommendations.Buckeye Lake State park in Ohio is nice. $26 for electric hookups. They have a big lake with a separate beach for campers. We took I-70 to I-74 then RT 36 across Missouri. This is in my opinion a better road than I-70 through Missouri.It is 4 lane,64mph. And there are 2 nice Missouri State Parks ( Long Branch and Pershing )along this route.We stayed at Pershing. $19 a night with electric and it's right off the highway. We then took I-29 north and then took a shortcut,Nebraska Rt 6 to I-80. We stayed at Olagalla Recreation Area. It's about 12 miles north but a beautiful campground on a lake. $18 a night plus $5 entrance fee.But there are other State Rec areas off I-80 that are closer. In Nebraska,we stopped at Minden to see the Harold Warp Pioneer Museum. If you like history,old cars,trucks,motorcycles,snowmobiles or tractors,you'll love this place. There is a campground at the museum.If you stay overnight you get one free pass to the museum.In Yellowstone,we stayed at Madison campground. It doesn't have hookups but is centrally located. In Yellowstone,go into the Inn at Old Faithful. The lobby is beautiful and the restaurant is very good and the prices are reasonable. Either going to,or leaving Yellowstone, there is a nice campground in Dubois,the Longhorn Motel and RV Park. Full hookups sites along the wind river. $49 a night. The bathrooms were like in your own home. Each one had a toilet,vanity and shower.

RE: Rt. 30 Lancaster to Gettysburg, Pa

Yes,Route 30 West is pretty good. The first part is mostly limited access divided highway. The other route would be Pa turnpike to Rt 15.

RE: PA to Michigan- campground ideas needed

On the way back,I would recommend Buckeye Lake State Park.It's just east of Dayton ,Ohio. It has electric hookups and a nice size lake which we could see from our site. There was a separate beach for campers. They have a nice store too. About 10 miles off I-70.

RE: Power outage OBX

We were there in May. Stayed at Frisco, National Park Campground.No hookups. Brough water with us and had generator so if you're fully self contained it shouldn't affect you unless they close the campground completely.

RE: Starting a new RV campground...

I am an electrical contractor and Mayor of a small Borough in Pa. In our state,it is so hard and expensive to build anything new with all the regulations. I would suggest buying an existing campground and then make it into what you want.

RE: Never RV'd before, need help with cross country routes

I would suggest heading into Missouri and take I-44 to I-70 into Pa. Then take Pa Turnpike to I-81 north into New York.Then I-88 to Rt 7 to I-91.I would suggest getting the Pilot/Flying J app. They have stations that have separate pumps just for RV's. Not all their stations have the lanes but most Flying J's do and some Pilots do.

RE: Video of TT flips over on Parkway Monday

It's amazing that the tow vehicle didn't appear to slow down after the sway occurred. And the guy recording it didn't seem to back off when the sway started.

RE: What's in your freezer when you don't have an oven?

We don't use the oven either.But my wife makes meals at home and freezes them.Then we just defrost them at the campground. She makes and freezes,chilli,pot pie,shepard's pie, quiche,etc.

RE: Ocean front getaway

Assategue is great.Lot's to do. Take in the ranger demonstrations and keep your food inside or the horses will get it.The state park has one loop with electric. The national park has no hookups but 2 loops allow generators. We prefered the bayside campground because there is some grass and a few trees. Our site had direct access to the bay. Kiptopeke is about an hour south of Assategue but has full hookups. Huntington Beach State park in South Carolina is great.Some full hookups, the rest water and electric.Some sites are in the open and some in the woods.They have a small store. They have a good nature program which you should take advantage of.The home of the former owners is open for tours. You are about a mile of so south of Murrel's Inlet where they have a few good restaurants.Another great place is the Outer Banks. Plenty of choices with private campgrounds and National Parks Campgrounds. We stayed at the National Park Campground at Frisco.No hookups but you are on the ocean and the price was right at $13 a night with my Senior Pass.There's a grocery store gas station right across from the entrance.They allow generators. The Life Saving Museum at Rodnathe is neat. But any of them would be a long drive from Indiana.

RE: Yellowstone camping - best spots?

We stayed in Madison which is kind of centrally located. Mammoth Campground looked nice and the sites a little more isolated.Also, at Mammoth,there are a few stores and a restaurant and gas station. Plus,you're a couple of miles south of Gardener,Montana where you can get groceries or something to eat.Make sure you go inside the Inn at Old Faithful.It's supposed to be the largest log structure in the world and the lobby is beautiful.The food is good and decently priced.

RE: This kinda thing can't help but keep fuel prices down.

Where do these people think electric comes from? Does France or any of those countries have enough generating capacity? Do they have the infrastructure to deliver the electricity?How much does it cost to replace those batteries and how much does it cost to dispose of them? The hybreds make a certain amount of sense,and small electrics for inner city drivers might make sense, but believing total electric vehicles replacing the combustion engine is just plain crazy.

RE: Starting to plan an Alaska trip what are the boon docking

I won't go to Canada because they are so paranoid about guns. But there are gun shops near the border that will store your fire arm for a fee and you can retrieve it when you return.As to carrying in US National Parks,yes you can,BUT you cannot take your weapon into any building,even a bathroom.We were in Yellowstone last year and I left my gun in the truck when I went into a building.
