RE: Where to go in November?

We just came back from Virginia last week.We stayed at Chippokes Plantation State Park. Nice campground with water and electric hookups and new bath houses. It's a free ferry ride across the river.Jamestown is right across the river and Williamsburg and Yorktown are accessed by the Colonial Parkway.

RE: Badlands & Custer SP. Difference in June vs August?

We were there in August and I don't remember it being overly hot.

RE: Trip planning input / help request

You're trying to see too much in too short a time. While the Grand Canyon can be seen in a day,Yellowstone would take several days.There is also alot to see in the Black Hills.Badlands National Park,Wall Drug,Custer State Park, Mt Rushmore to name a few.

RE: What to do Columbus Day Weekend in Gettysburg PA

Land of Little Horses is kind of neat.Also,Pine Grove Furnace State Park isn't far. They have a small visitor center.It's the half way point on the Appalachian Trail.About a mile from the park are the remains of an old POW camp.They sell a book about that at the visitor center.They also sell a map that shows where all the buildings were.If you go to the site of the old camp,they have numbers that correlate to the map so you can see what was there.

RE: Route into Yellowstone

That is true! Don't know what their schedule is. Time frame is always a factor especially of the non-retired. Schedule is leave Pa on a Saturday,get to Yellowstone on Wednesday afternoon staying in Madison Campground.So that would be about 4 and a half days of driving.Leave Yellowstone either Sunday or Monday.Another 5 days home.

RE: DisneyWorld's Fort Wilderness

We were there October a year ago and paid $89 a night.That was in the 400 loop.Still expensive but about $40 less than what you would be paying.Don't know if they went up that much in a year or if they charge more at different times of the year? It would probably be our last time there since the whole trip from Pa cost about $3,500 considering fuel,camping,park tickets,food etc.

RE: Camping at Sturgis

I guess it depends how close you want to be.We stayed at Rafter J Bar near Hill City.It is a very nice campground with different camping sections,all full hookups.We stayed in the second last site in the lower Ranch Camp section.The site was really secluded.They have a pool,hot tub,a camp store that sells beer and other supplies. You are about an hour from Sturgis,but you are close to Mt Rushmore and Custer State Park.I really suggest you do the Wildlife Loop and Iron Mtn Highway in Custer.They are great rides.

RE: Route into Yellowstone

Where are you staying will make a big difference. West Yellowstone? Madison? The south on US 191. Mammoth US 89 Fishing Bridge? Maybe US 310 and come in from the east entrance We are staying in Madison Campground in Yellowstone.

RE: What GPS Do You Have

We have a Garmin and The Camping World Rand McNally RV GPS with 7" screen.We got it because of the bigger screen and you can put in height restrictions etc. For some reason,the Rand McNally sometimes won't let you enter info which is frustrating. Or it tries to guess what you are trying to input and over rides what you are entering.The Garmin is better but it seems my Samsung S4 phone is the best of the bunch. You just tell it where you want to go and it takes you there.Why can't stand alone GPS units be this easy?

RE: Self defense while traveling

Is it that dangerous to travel in the US? My first question too. We have traveled in the U.S. and never felt the need to pack a weapon but I suppose there is a first time for everything. Judging by the number of gun threads on these forums paranoia seems to be common. Is it paranoia to carry a fire extinguisher? I've never needed one but I still want to be prepared.

Chippokes Plantation State park

We are heading to Chippokes. Is this a good place to bring bicycles and how far is it from the campground to the cabins?

We're heading that way next week.Staying at Chippokes Plantation State Park.Right across the river from Williamsburg.

RE: Person New to RVing Requests Your Insights

RVing can save money.First,maybe you should be looking at a trailer instead of a motorhome. Motorhomes are expensive to buy and fix and the large ones gets terrible gas milage. I have a 27ft TT with one slide. I pull it with a van and get about 10mpg when towing on interstate highways.We bought ours new for $27,000,but you can find good used units for half the price. Stay in state or federal campgrounds.If you are over 62,get the America the Beautiful card and get half off camping fees.I just booked a campsite at Yellowstone for $13 a night.That's alot cheaper than a hotel.You can cook your own meals instead of eating out every day.That alone could save you $40 to $50 a day for 2. Plus you sleep in your own bed every night,if you need to use the bathroom while traveling you just pull over. If you want to quit RVing,you sell the trailer and recoup some of your money.

Ditto on Land of the Little Horses. Your 3 year old will enjoy that.

RE: Yellowstone in September

Good advice so far.Here's another suggestion.When you get up in the morning,instead of running the furnace,put a large pot of water on the stove.This will put humidity in the air which will make you feel warm without running the furnace.Just crack a window so you have a source of air for the stove.
