Chippokes Plantation State Park

We plan to stay at Chippokes between Christmas and New Years.We will come in on a Sunday.Check in is 4pm.They do say if your site is available you can check in early.We plan to leave PA at 8am and arrive about 1pm.If our campsite is not available,is there room for us to park and hang out until 4pm? Also,we will come in on I64. What is the best route to take to the campground.

RE: FL for Christmas, are we nuts?

We went to Huntington Beach State park in South Carolina last year between Christmas and New Years.Temps ranged from high of 80 to low at night in the 40's.When I got back to PA,it was freezing and I should have drained the lines immediately.The next day everything was frozen so I began to thaw it out.Nothing broke.But if I was you,I'd make sure as soon as you get back,turn the heat on high.Then drain the lines,blow them out and pump anti freeze into the lines and traps. Don't wait.

RE: Now Dish is threatening to dump CBS!

I could care less about CNN.According to Dish it was Turner Broadcasting who pulled CNN.We also have an antenna so can get over the air broadcasts that way.

Try writing to Trailer Life.They have a section where people write on about their issues and TR hekps get them resolved.

RE: Question on Myrtle Beach Travel Park

Ditto on Huntington Beach SP.Have mix of shaded and open sites.Some full hookups the rest water and electric. Short walk to the beach from some sites.They have a camp store and a nature center with nature walks which were very informative. Short drive to Murrels Inlet where they have several good restaurants.

RE: Thanksgiving on the Chesapeak Bay

Elk Neck's full hookup section is very nice.We have also stayed at Jane's Island State Park near Crisfield,Md. We plan on staying at Chippokes Plantation State Park over Christmas.It's not directly on the bay it's on the James River.It's right across the river from Jamestown and Williamsburg.You can cross the river on a free ferry.The park has water and electric hookups.

RE: State Parks suitable for 40' Fifth Wheel 13' 6" tall

life is about choices.By buying such a big RV you have limited yourself as to where you can camp.Since we prefer state and federal parks,we have chosen to stay with a 26 ft TT. But since you asked a question,I would say go to campsitephotos.com.They don't have every campground,but the ones they do have pictures and site information which will be helpfull.

RE: Fort wilderness Halloween weekend

We were there last year.We saw more decorations there than in our home town.Some people go all out.Plus,they have trick or treat night in the Magic Kingdom.If you dress up,there are certain places you can go to get treats.Great time and you can't beat the weather that time of year.Last year,it was 80 with low humidity and no rain.We were in the 400 loop and could walk to the landing,the pool and Hoop De Do Review.

RE: Firefox issue

Firefox issue

I just love it when your phone or computer decides to do something you don't want.I always liked that with Firefox,when you typed something in the search box,it didn't suggest a whole bunch of******you didn't want.The only thing you would see would be places you previously searched which was nice if you went back to the same site alot. Now out of the blue,it started showing all these suggestions as soon as I type the first letter.And it doesn't show the things I went to before. If I wanted an Internet Explorer type browser I would have downloaded that.Can I change it back to the way it was?

RE: Getting expensive

No one said you have to buy a new camper.And there are plenty of low cost campgrounds.In South Carolina,we stayed at Huntington Beach State Park for $18 a night with water and electric hookups.Other state or federal parks are good deals too.If you have the America the Beautiful pass,then it's half price at most federal campgrounds.Pa offers a senior discount too.There is a book called low cost or no cost campgrounds.Some of them have hookups.Plus you can save money by eating in the camper.My wife makes up food ahead of time like pot pie,chillie,shepard pie etc and freezes it.The you thaw them out at the campground.

RE: A tale of woe.

2 more things that have happened.When we picked up the camper,they took my tow vehicle to hook up to the new trailer.When we went to do the walk through,it was hooked up to the hitch,but nothing else was hooked up.I noticed they changed the angle of the hitch ball.We drove home and everything was ok.On Sunday,we took it out for a shake down cruise to a state park about 2 hours away.When I went to hook up the trailer,it seemed the tongue of the trailer went down lower than normal.I pulled the trailer up onto the driveway to hook up the weight bars and noticed the hitch was loose and the ball was all the way back as far as it could go.Apparently when they adjusted the hitch,they didn't tighten the nuts.The bottom and top bolts were loose and the set bolt at the bottom wasn't tightened which was what caused the tongue to sag.Thank God it didn't happen on the way home from the dealer.So we camp fro 3 nights.Trailer worked fine and weather co-operated.When we left,we stopped at the dump station.My wife took the trash to the dumpster while I prepared to dump.I had the sewer hose in one hand and loosened the cap with the other and grey water started pouring out.This new trailer has 3 tanks while our others only had 2.Plus,you can't see the valves on the new one,only the handles so it's harder to tell when they are closed or open.Plus,the valve for the galley tank isn't located with the other 2. When the dealer checked the tanks apparently they didn't close the galley tank valve.Glad it was grey water instead of black.I hope this is the last of it.And yes,I will send a letter to Camping World listing all the issues and include the expired gift certificates.
