RE: Has anyone had a run in with any WILD animals?

In the late 90's,we stayed at a West Virgina State Park that had a lot of deer.I was sitting at the picnic table and our border collie was laying underneath.A doe came to about 10 ft from us and started grazing.She suddenly stopped and started sniffing the air. She must have picked up the smell of the dog.While looking directly at us,she started to paw the ground.At that,our dog gave out a loud bark and the deer took off.

RE: Missouri Campground suggestions west of St Louis along I70?

I agree on Arrow Rock. Decent campground with water and electric hookups.The town of Arrow Rock is a state historic site and was once a steamboat port on the Missouri River but the river changed course and now it's high and dry.But many original buildings remain and are open to the public.

RE: Indoor pools

Yes.Circle Pines KOA in Williams Arizona had both when we stayed there a few years back.Pipestem State Resort Park in West Virginia also had an indoor pool.Don't remember a hot tub but they did have a sauna.

RE: Cleaning question I haven't found answered elsewhere?

Awesome is concentrated and Magic Erasers contain bleach so you do need to do a small area and rinse immediately.But I have used this combination for many years and never had a problem removing paint or decals.I start at the top of the trailer and do a 4 ft x 4 ft section.Spray on,let sit for about a minute,then scrub with Magic Eraser.Then rinse area you just washed plus the area below it.Work your way across the top and then down. Like others have said,try a small area first and you must rinse right after washing.I think that's where others have had issues like the guy said he used it on the roof and it ran down the sides.I used it on the roof too and it works great.But rinse it good and you'll be fine.Plus Awsome is only $1.00 a bottle and you can buy gallon refills.

RE: Cleaning question I haven't found answered elsewhere?

Go to the local Dollar Store.Buy " Awesome".$1.00 a bottle.Spray on.leave set for about a minute.Then use a Mr Clean Magic Eraser".Do a small section about 4 x 4ft starting at the top of the trailer and work your way down rinsing as you go.

RE: Deposit fee for dogs

I wouldn't spend my money at such a park.

RE: Chincoteague island campgrounds

We stayed at Maddox twice.Nice sites under tall pine trees.They have a pool and store.Maddox is the closest to Assateague National Wildlife refuge.They have some nice beaches and paved bike trails.

RE: Camping with PTSD

I served in the Navy during Vietnam.In the late 80's,I became involved in our local VFW.Eventually,I became an officer.I talked to and video taped many of our members.Most of them were WWII vets,but we had some Korea and Vietnam vets too.After 9/11, I was asked to gather some vets to talk at our local school. One of the guys I invited graduated 3 years ahead of me in high school.I knew who he was but never knew him personally until after that day we talked to the kids.Marty originally lived near Allentown,Pa. When he was about 5,his mother and a brother were killed in a car accident.Him,his father and remaining family moved to our area and grew up at the local children's home. Marty's dad had polio as a child but still worked at the home to support the family.Marty became a good athlete in high school and after he graduated he joined the Marines.He was sent to Nam. A few weeks later,he was wounded for the first time.He spent 6 weeks recuperating but was sent back into combat.Not long after,he was wounded again.This time,he lost one leg and his other leg was severely injured. He was eventually sent to the Philadelphia Naval Hospital,the closet facility to our area.He spent over a year in and out of the hospital recovering and learning to walk with an artificial leg.Marty could have spent the rest of his life drinking and feeling sorry for himself or feeling guilty for being an only survivor.You see everyone else in his squad died the day Marty was wounded.But he began working as an apprentice to a shoemaker for $1.00 an hour. 5 years later,he took over the business and ran it until he retired a few years a go.Even after he retired,he continued working part time.Every Memorial Day,Labor Day,Veterans Day and the 4th of July,Marty could be seen sprucing up the local Veterans Memorial and placing flags along the highway.Marty was a class act and was an inspiration to me and others that knew him.The thing I learned from Marty and some of the other combat vets I got to know is that you must face your fears head on.Marty admitted he had his problems like sometimes drinking too much,but he perservered.Two months ago,I got a phone call.Marty died of a massive heart attack.He was 67.I don't know what your situation was,but I hope Marty's story may inspire you to get out and do the things you want to do.Don't let the past hold you back.

RE: Win 7,Firefox help

I've tried everything you guys suggested.But still,when I close a tab or multiple tabs,sometimes one of the pages keeps showing up when i try to open a new tab.The only way I can get a new tab to come up is by minimizing the page and then a blank page will open. And the mouse issue is still there.I did go to the control panel and tried making changes but the same thing still happens.When I go to hit the down arrow,sometimes the whole page just flies down.the I have to scroll back up.

RE: Win 7,Firefox help

When I refer to the up and down arrow,I mean the one that's to the right of the page,not the one on the keyboard.So when I left click with the mouse on the up and down arrows,this is where the problem sometimes occurs.

RE: Ideas for some trip. within 600-900 miles of MD

I would suggest doing the Blue Ridge Parkway.Very scenic drive,plus several nice camping destinations nearby. We have stayed at Sherando Lake which is about 18 miles south and 10 miles west of the northern entrance to the Parkway.Sections B and C have some very nice large sites.Electric only but water spigots through out the loops and nice bath houses.They have a nice swimming area.Further south and a little off the parkway is Phillpot Lake.Goose Point Campground C loop is right on a pinnisula.Many sites are right on the water.Nice swimming beach.If you have a canoe it's an easy paddle across the lake.There are also some nice campgrounds right along the parkway plus many visitor centers where you can listen to ranger talks about the area. Another suggestion would be Pipestem State Resort Park in West Virginia.This place has everything.Two restaurants,indoor and outdoor pools,golf,tennis,horseback riding,boating,fishing,archery,nature walks and a nice campground.Some full hookups and some water and electric sites.

RE: Travel Report: Big Bend National Park

It's nice when bloggers include pictures and descriptions of the camping spots.Very nicely done.

Win 7,Firefox help

Last year I got a new computer with Windows 7.One of the things I dislike is,if I am reading a news story, I use the down arrow to scroll from the top to the bottom.But sometimes when I hit the arrow,the page just flies to the bottom.Then I have to scroll up and start over again.Is there anyway to fix this?I didn't have this trouble with my other versions of windows.Or maybe the problem isn't with windows but with something else. I usually use Firefox as my web browser. When I am finished with a website,I hit the X to close it out like I always did.But now,many times when I go to open up a new web page,the previous story pops up instead.No matter how many times I close it,it comes back up.The only way I can bring a blank page up is to minimize the last page and then a blank page comes up.I have looked ay my Firefox settings and I have it clicked to always start with a new page but that hasn't helped.Any suggestions would be appreciated.

RE: Myrtle Beach

Well here's one vote for "None of the above". I've seen lots of kids in the age group having great times at MB state park and Huntington Beach state park. The latter with limited full hookups though. They are great places to camp, wonderful beaches, nature trails, spaces have good separation, and all the shopping and amusements are not too far away. Many sites provide good shade to help keep things cool in the hot July weather. Bring their bikes and they can get plenty of exercise. Amen.I grew up in the 50's and early 60's in a family that couldn't afford to take a real vacation.When our kids grew up we always stayed at state or federal parks and our kids always had plenty to do.Last Christmas we stayed at Huntington Beach SP.Short walk to the beach,nature walks and talks every day. Not far from some very nice restaurants.But,to each their own.

RE: Just Suppose

I would build a quality product using good materials installed by experienced builders supervised by someone who is not only an experienced trailer builder,but who also owns a trailer and camps.Mistakes cost money.Do it right the first time.

RE: 2015 Sturgis SD bikeweek

Rafter J is nice if you want full hookups and a pool.Custer State Park is very nice but only have electric hookups.

RE: PA turnpike

I actually like driving the turnpike going west.Lots of room and plenty of places to pull over.But the tolls are way out of line.As to the question what happened to the money? A few years ago,former Governor Rendell and the legislature thought they would be able to toll I80.That was rejected by the feds.But they made the turnpike commission give millions of dollars every year to PennDOT in anticipation of the money they thought they would get from tolling I80.I think that will end in 2018.

RE: PA turnpike

Yeah,we're blessed in Pa to get 2 whammies in the beginning of 2015.Last year we took the turnpike from Lebanon to Ft Washington.One way with trailer $32.00. We went to Virginia over Christmas.Gas here in Pa was $2.69.In Virginia it was $2.24.Even New Jersey which doesn't allow self serve is 20 cents cheaper than Pa.

RE: The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness

While all sites are nice,we wanted something close to the landing since most days we went to the Majic Kingdom.We stayed in the 400 loop.You can walk to the landing and Hoop de Doo Revue from there.You can also walk to the dog park,the pool and Chip and Dale Show.The vegetation between sites make each site seem private.We were there the last week in October.The weather was 80 degrees,no rain and low humidity.People decorated their campers for Halloween and some places in the MK allowed you to trick or treat if you dressed up.

RE: Nashville Campground

I guess it depends how close you want to be to Nashville.Cedars of Lebanon State Park has water and electric sites in a wooded setting.It's about 10 miles south of I-40 so it wouldn't take long to get to Nashville.The park has alot of recreation activities.http://tnstateparks.com/parks/about/cedars-of-lebanon
