RE: Skidaway or James Island?

Love to bike ride at James Island. They have an absolutely wonderful dog park, too, if you have a furkid. I've been there in October for the last 2 years. Great place.

RE: Camping reservations with Corp of Engineers parks

I find this really odd. Have always used Recreation.gov for COE parks and never had a problem or a wait. In fact over this last weekend I made reservations at 4 different parks in four different states. Got to pick the sites, got my senior discount, paid up and immediately got confirmation numbers. In fact since we get the senior half price COE parks have moved to the top of our preferred parks. That's exactly my experience. I also choose COEs and have never run into problems. I don't, however, yet qualify for the senior discount but it's still cheaper, and better, than our state parks.

RE: Stollen

might sound crazy, but I see so many of us on this forum, if we just chipped in 25.00 we help her out. how could we set it up? As I mentioned above, there's a Go Fund Me account. However, I think they met the goal.

RE: Jay Flight 195RB

And then some folks are perfectly happy with small trailers, and even some live in their teardrop. I know of several who full time in their T@B, including a family with 2 kids who use the add-a-room. After camping for most of my life with trailers that had a bathroom, I'm having a blast in the bathroom-less T@B. I have no holding tank, and use an external. My bathroom is the Luggable Loo. Different strokes for different folks, and it's great that we're not all the same or it would be a boring world.

RE: Stollen

She has insurance, but has the deductible and loss of her gear. This was to be her home not just a weekend toy. She's a photographer. There's now a Go Fund Me account to help replace gear and insurance.

RE: Between Charleston SC and Savannah GA

Enjoy those beach front sites while you can in another few years they will be gone. Many have fallen victim to rising sea levels already, some even flood on a high tide! Ron W. So sad, but true. Actually the site numbers at HI do not make sense because some sites are no longer there due to changes in coastline. The whole ocean-front row is now gone, and the second row has become the first.

RE: Elkmont Campground

The Sisters on the Fly have an event at Elkmont during the fireflies viewing, and for 2016 that event begins June 9. We always call 6 months in advance for sites, so that would be December 9.

RE: Between Charleston SC and Savannah GA

Hunting Island is hands down my all-time favorite campground. I've been there when there's no bugs, and I've been there when they're bad. However, when they're bad it's not continuous. It's kind of odd, but they'll be thick and then minutes later gone. It may repeat throughout the day. Some have said the bugs won't be close to the water where there's a breeze, but at Hunting Island that's not the case. There are times when you can be wading in the waves and fighting the bugs at the same time. It's worth it to me, since it's not continuous. Can't get much better than this.... https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1498/24619785223_6d4f771c7e.jpgSite and road covered with sand from storm - Copy by C. Baker, on Flickr

RE: Anyone stay at St Louis RV Park

Looking at Google Maps it is 1.7 miles from the Casino Queen RV Park to the arch...essentially just across the Eads St Bridge. Is there a pedestrian walk across the bridge and could we just walk to the arch and then take public transportation to the museum? To answer your question, the metro stop at the RV Park will get you on a train that crosses directly over the river. As I recall, you get off two or three stops down, leaving you a few blocks' walk to the Arch. Very convenient. I don't recall that there is a pedestrian walk across the bridge, but we didn't look for one, either. I have stayed at the St.Louis RV Park and wouldn't recommend it. As others have said, you can get on the Metro right at the Casino parking lot. Can't get much closer than that. It's closer to the Arch than the St. Louis RV Park, actually. Casino is very safe, and I've got on the Metro there many, many times. That's where most IL folks park when going to Busch Stadium. The Casino is very safe, but go straight there off the interstate. You don't want to dally around in that area. Looks a little "shady" for the short span from interstate to Casino. If you stay at the Casino, you'll be treated to a wonderful skyline night view of the city lights and the Arch. I second the City Museum. It's a must-do while in STL.

RE: looking for a used 17' fiber glass trailer

Although it may be considered too small for your needs, a T@B can give you a wet bath, a larger than queen bed (although it's also the dinette), and there are instructions for a bunk mod in our owners' forum/Facebook pages. Mine is Albufiber, a combination of aluminum and fiberglass. Several people are living full time in their T@B, including a family with children traveling through Alaska. We also have large add-a-rooms to provide extra screened or fully enclosed space. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4009/4613764026_c2c3cc9992.jpgLieber Recreation Area, IN, site No. 10 by C.

RE: Going to open a lot of opinions: new TT

Careful with Evergreen! There is a post 2 days ago on this forum on a disaster the owner had with a brand new one literally falling apart. I read that nightmare post. Unbelievable. However, at the same time there are happy Evergreen owners that have never had problems. Very odd...and scary.

RE: Going to open a lot of opinions: new TT

I love the Evergreen Element 28RLSS and the 30FLS.

RE: Would you buy one?

Yes! I love it. I have been a T@B owner for six years, though, so that size appeals to me. However, I would also wait on a used one and not pay that price.

RE: Small Trailer Recommendations

I can stand in my T@B. at 6'1", hubby can stand at the front. It has a u-shaped dinette that converts to a little larger than a queen bed, so you're sitting when not in the front anyway. With the attached add-a-room, we're able to camp with our grown kids, as the AC unit easily cools the room. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7176/13993313563_a5fd9cce4f.jpgK8 Kent Cole Jenna T by C.

RE: Louisiana to Decatur, IN- Sights to see, places to camp?

If you come up I-57 I would suggest you stay at one of the five campgrounds surrounding Rend Lake in southern IL (Near Benton). It's a COE, 13 miles long and 3 miles wide. It's very busy during the summer with boating activities, but crowds are way down at this point. The closest CG to I-57 is Gun Creek at Exit 77. Very easy on and off. The lake has 4 federal campgrounds plus a state park. The state park, alone, has over 200 sites. I love their bike trails Another popular state park is Lincoln Trail, near Marshall, IL, west of Terre Haute, IN. The 2 loops are completely different. In Indiana you won't be far from Spencer and McCormick's Creek State Park. Very good hiking. Beautiful park with a lodge, cabins, swimming pools, waterfalls... Actually Decatur is a pretty good drive from McCormick Creek and Spencer. With that said they are worthy of a visit. You will be much closer to the rv plants and the Amish area as Dutchmansport stated. True, but depending on what route they take to get to Decatur, they could come up through Spencer. It would be worth it. You would take I-64 East at Mt. Vernon, IL, and then catch 69 north up to Spencer...or the way I go, take route 50 over to Vincennes, IN, and then north.

RE: Walk up site Great Smoky Mountains

I didn't have trouble finding campgrounds closed in Pigeon Forge in February. I don't think that will be a problem.

RE: Spring Trip: South East

I enjoy James Island County Park when staying near Charleston SC. I don't know if you travel with pets, but they have an awesome dog park. Great bike trails, too. My favorite in Nashville is Seven Points, a COE campground on Percy Priest Lake, east side of the city. No FHU, but if you didn't camp there it's still a nice visit. Very close to I-40. Matter of fact I'll be there ten days from now on my way SE. About a half hour NW of Atlanta is Lake Allatoona, a COE area that's very nice. I think they have 8 campgrounds near the lake. I love McKinney. It's close to I-75 and has 150 sites. I don't believe they have FHU, either, though.

RE: DOT Age of Tires

When I last bought new tires, I was surprised to see they were 8 months old. Ugh.
