RE: Mad Max Rig

Looks like an "ActionMobil" rig.They have 4-6-8 wheel drive rigs. Beaucoup Bucks! Excellent quality.

RE: Campground Damage Deposit

I can see it now. At checkout, one is told to wait until someone is available to inspect the campsite after he/she inspects the ones on the back forty! :C

RE: Food storage for tent campers

Most military people remember the Lister Bag. A fabric bag hung on a tree at bivouac that slowly leaked water around the entire surface of the bag. It kept the water inside the bag relatively cooler than the outside ambient temperature. The wet towel trick is a similar idea as long as the towel is kept wet periodically. It will keep the container surface lower than the outside ambient temperature.

RE: RVing oversees

Some hints can be found in earthroamer.com. Search the Adventures section at the site and look for the Bill and Pip Smith trip around the world. Select their trip diary. They traveled the world including Europe, Russia, Mongolia, Japan, etc. Seems that they had problems with two shippings due to break-ins and theft from their rv plus tire damage. Some helpful hints on where they boondocked, etc.

RE: Food storage for tent campers

Perhaps acquiring a propane-powered refrigerator would work. Also, if camping near a stream, have food packed in a watertight container and set it under the water of a stream? I've done that several times myself. Dry ice would also work and last a long time. But be careful how you store the food with it. Don't allow food to be too near it and be careful handling it.

RE: What kind of heater?

Oil filled heaters are somewhat similar to home radiators and are the safest mode of heat IMHO. No propane flame. No glowing electric grid wires. Does not consume oxygen from the RV interior. Can be placed near walls, carpets, furniture, etc.

RE: Boston

Ahhhhhhhh...... You drive too darned slow! ;) Actually more like at least 25 mins, not counting actual departure and arrival points, except during rush hour when anything goes. Ahhhhhhhh - 75 is too slow? I do it several times a month.

RE: Boston

For true history buffs, walking the Freedom Trail is almost a must-do! There's a wealth of history to be seen. The USS Constitution is in dry-dock for repairs, but still available for regular tours. Boston Duck-boat tour is something you might want to plan on as well. I don't spend much time north of Boston, so would recommend Normandy Farms. Probably the best resort in the area, but maybe more than you're after. Super clean, large sites, not cheap. 5 minute ride to the train station in Mansfield, but I might suggest driving to the Quincy train station for a much more frequent schedule into South Station. Less pre-planning required! Foxboro to Quincy is a 15 min easy ride. Actually more like at least 25 mins, not counting actual departure and arrival points, except during rush hour when anything goes.

RE: Boston

For a visit to Boston without campground activities which you can experience anywhere, consider Wonmatuck State Park in Hingham, MA. Closer to Boston than the other parks described. Drive to the ferry from the campground and shoot over to Boston proper from the ferry wharf. FYI - Boston is a great walking town. Hit the Visitor's Center at the Boston Common. May too much history to describe here.

RE: Exterior Laminate vs Aluminum

Another plus for aluminum shell is the fact that it acts as a Faraday Cage for protection from lightening strikes. Can't vouch about on-board electronics though.

RE: Parking near Boston

You might also consider Wampatuck State Park to set up trailer as a base. It's located in Hingham. 30 Mins. fron Boston depending on rush hour.

RE: Is it possible to drain waste ?

Obviously the TROLL has a rip in his marble bag.

RE: Hampton Beach NH

Closer to you with gorgeous and spacious grounds, is Rocky Neck State Park in Niantic, CT. Walk the through nature trail to the beach or drive. Free to campers.

RE: Do you'all know what a "KININHOP" is?

After many decades of pondering the meaning of those words they are finally explained in concise language. Much distinguished research must have occurred to find those answers. Now, at last, I can finally enjoy a good night's sleep. :Z

RE: Tent Camping Forum

What is a "chip tent"? If you mean cheap tents, try Walmart.

RE: Chrysler vehicles can be hacked

What with the present computer systems and associated softwares installed in newer trucks and cars, and the soon to be popular (probably) self-driving vehicles, just wait and see what terrorists do with it. And they will, eventually. Picture massive all-of-a-sudden accidents etc. Scary to even think about. :(

RE: Why you should have a filtration system on your RV..

:h So they had rust in their water system? It's not going to kill you. What are you going to complain about? Bad tasting water? Just what is so bad about drinking rusty water (iron water)? Why does Turtle n Peeps have to respond this way? I have noticed some people on this forum need to work on their netiquette (online etiquette), IMHO. Ahhhhh, I didn't "respond" to anything. :h If you notice, those are question marks in back of my sentences. Sorry about your offence; but those were questions from me, not statements. But "It's not going to kill you." IS a statement, oui?
