RE: How do you define too expensive?

I believe it is relative to what you can afford. I have paid $90 a night at Disney World. Very expensive for us but being right in the park made the decision easier for us. We are normally pretty frugal and stay at state or federal parks. So for us, $30 is usually tops. And now that I'm over 62, with the America the Bueatiful pass, federal parks are half price. When we went to Yellowstone in May, we stayed at some private parks too. The highest we paid was $49 for full hookups in a nice campground. As far as gas goes, I look for a station that makes it easy to get into and out of rather than price. We prefer Flying J's.

RE: After camping 60+ years, finally ran into the ultimate ....

This is why I hate to camp on weekends. Too many people who all want to leave at the same time. We try to go in on a Sunday when most people leave and camp until Wednesday or Thursday. Much nicer,quiter and peaceful.

RE: Help w/visiting Rushmore,Yellowstone and Tetons?

We were in Yellowstone in May.We spent 4 days in the park staying at Madison Campground.Not everything was open but it was till a great trip. Weather was nice, no traffic jams or large crowds. We saw a mother grizzly with 3 cubs. They came right down to our van and walked past my window.We had buffalos do the same. We ate dinner at the Inn at Old Faithful.The food was good and the prices weren't bad.Even if you don't eat there, check out the inside. It's the largest log structure in the world. We visited the Black Hills about 18 years ago. We stayed at Rafter J Ranch campground. Very nice. If we had to do it again, we would stay in Custer State Park. The wildlife loop is a great drive as is Iron Mtn Highway.Make sure you stop at the visitor centers and watch the films on the park.We did visit Wall and the Badlands. We also liked Bear Country USA and the Cosmos.

While I agree it is harder, it depends when you want to go.If you can only do weekends, it can be real tough. If we camp locally, we usually go in on a Sunday and leave Wednesday. In May, we went from Pennsylvania to Yellowstone and back. We only had reservations for the first night,a Saturday and for the 4 nights in Yellowstone.For the rest of the 2 week trip we had no problem at all finding a site at either state or private parks.

RE: summer in north east

If you get the America the Beautiful pass, you get in to all National parks free and camping at most federal campgrounds are half price.Some states give a discount for being over 62.

RE: Dodging hurricane Matthew

It makes sense except the part about staying in a hotel. You have the RV. Use it.

RE: What is the best BBQ grill

We have the Webber Baby Q. It works off a small propane bottle or you can get a hose and adaptor to hook up to a bigger tank.

RE: Colorado residents don't want tourists anymore

As a native Coloradoan, I get zero of your money, and quite frankly, it wouldn't bother me a bit if the tourists stayed home. The real problem is that there are just too many people these days, ad I know I'm part of the problem when I visit other states. You sure do get some of their money when they pay gas tax,it helps to pay for your roads. When they pay sales tax,it helps to pay for other things that otherwise would come out of your pocket instead of the tourists.Plus, they spend money at local businesses which employs citizens of your state who pay taxes that other wise would come out of your pocket.

RE: Idaho Campground

We were at Yellowstone in May and went in the west entrance because the south entrance wasn't open. We went past a nice lake with what appeared to be a nice campground right next to the highway. Not sure if it was at Henry's lake or Island Resivoir.

RE: Summer 2017 - Trip Suggestions

How about going east? Huntington Beach State Park in South Carolina is nice. You have your choices of water and electric or full hookups,shade or sun. You are a short walk to the beach, they have a nice store, you can tour Atalya which was the house where the original owners lived. You are a short distance from Murrel's Inlet and some good restaurants. Or, Shenandoah National Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway. There are campgrounds in the National Park and along the Parkway, but none have hookups. There are several good Federal parks close by the Parkway like Sherando Lake and Goose Point. Or Land Between the Lakes in Kentucky. We stayed at Canal Campground which is either Forest Service or COE. Choice of water and electric or full hookups. Some sites are on the water where you can watch ships and barges go by. Swimming beach.

RE: First time east coast in a motorhome

Myrtle Beach we loved Huntington Beach State Park. Have your choice of shaded or open sites. Some full hookups, the rest with water and electric. Short walk to the beach. You can visit Atalya,the former home of the owners of the property. They have great nature programs. You are just down the road from Murrel's Inlet where they have some great restaurants.

Strange goings on

I have recently noticed that some threads I have never looked at or commented on say " Go to first new post". Then others I have commented on don't say that. Anyone know what's up with that?
