RE: Is Yellowstone Pet Friendly?

Take your dog, as long as he's not a yapper who cares. I know we are taking ours! I spoke to the lady when we made reservations for Madison inside the park and she encouraged us to take ours.

RE: recommendations for rv campgrounds yellowstone / teton

We're headed to Yellowstone at the end of May, after researching long and hard, we decided on Colter Bay and Madison for inside the park. Fishing Bridge does not allow camp fires, all the other campgrounds inside the park do. From what it sounds like we will be too tired for a fire at night, fine with us.

RE: Weather in Yellowstone

Not sure how long your rig is but if you had plans to stay in the park itself, I just looked and the ones that I randomly selected were already full. We made our reservations for Madison back in September and they were almost full then.

RE: Oscar Scherer SP, FL

I wouldn't recommend it as a destination. We have used it as a stopover a couple times on the way to the Keys. We were there this past July and the Mosquitoes would just about lift you off the ground late evening. You couldn't go outside at all in the evening. However if you do go be sure to go see the Oak tree, it's the second largest in Florida, it's located in the park. As far as shopping, restaurants goes, there are plenty of different choices in the immediate area. This parks sits in the middle of a highly populated area. This is just my opinion, also I might add the bath houses were some of the dirtiest Ive seen, but that changes weekly with different camp host so you really cant go on that.

RE: Weather in Yellowstone

Looking at going to Yellowstone the last week of May. I understand that the weather anywhere is a crapshoot. But I was wondering, as a general rule of thumb, what to expect. Would like to hear from some folks who have been there around the Memorial Day time frame, and what kind weather you experienced.We have reservations for the end of May, a buddy of mine that's works up there said he thought it was the best time to go. Its been a very mild winter as well so hopefully we will be Okay. I'm not worried about it. We are staying at Madison campground in the park itself from the 25 -29th of May. Fishing opens up that weekend too in the Maddison river I was told when I made our reservations. I couldn't find what I wanted online so I called and sure enough they had sites that were not shown to be available on line.

RE: Glacier National Park

My Son lives and works at Glacier. It is a beautiful place. If you have any specific questions, I am sure he could answer them. We plan on going there in September, cannot wait! Hey Cindy, how have you and the family been? Long time no connection...:)

RE: Great Smoky Mountains

Also Bryson City has numerous fly fishing outfits that offers various trips for beginners and pros alike. Plus if you have kids, there are several trout ponds in the area where you can catch trout and they will also clean and fillet them for you for a reasonable price. I buy fresh trout from a trout pond and cook them on the grill. I put a little butter on them with a slice of lemon wrap them in aluminum foil for a few minutes and Bam they are great! Here is a LINK to a few

RE: Great Smoky Mountains

Franklin NC. A very different way of life there. It is the way it used to be. Trust me. I agree after spending 20 years of camping and renting cabins in the Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Wears Valley and Townsend area it's changed so much and has become so commercialized it seems as tho we are visiting Panama City Beach Fl. Finally after fighting traffic for over an hour on a holiday weekend just to go five miles between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg we started to branch out to the North Carolina side in and around Bryson City, N.O.C., Nantahala, Franklin, Lake Fontana area. We love that area and it's more "the way it was" and to us just as beautiful and in some cases more beautiful. Just depends on what's important to you I guess. Have you all been to the waterfalls? I think there are five in that general area. Check them out. You will not be disappointed. This area in the Great Smoky Mountains is home to 250 Waterfalls and the Nantahala Gorge Nantahala Outdoor Center is one the prettiest and neatest rivers Ive seen up there. And don't get me started on the lakes up there, absolutely Gorgeous and crystal clear.

RE: Long Key State Park. Rat infestation.

Protected Rats, now I've seen it all.Beach mice Current Status: The St. Andrew beach mouse is federally listed as endangered. Currently, there are two populations of the St. Andrew beach mouse: East Crooked Island, Bay County, and St. Joseph Peninsula, Gulf County, Florida. Habitat Requirements and Limiting Factors: The St. Andrew beach mouse inhabits the primary, secondary, and scrub dunes within the coastal ecosystem. Beach mice require well developed dune systems in which to live out their life cycle. They dig their burrows into the face of the dunes near vegetative cover. Their diet is comprised primarily of the seeds and fruits of plants within their dune habitat with insects providing seasonal supplements. Threats to the St. Andrew beach mouse consist of habitat loss/alteration from land development and associated human use, hurricanes and other tropical storm events, nonnative predators, and recreational activity associated with development and tourism, that weaken and encroach on the dune ecosystem. Other potential threats are shoreline erosion, feral hogs, competition from house mice, intra-specific crossbreeding with Choctawhatchee beach mice, and artificial lighting. Availability of suitable habitat may be a limiting factor during periods of population expansion or following catastrophic weather events. Recovery Strategy: The St. Andrew beach mouse is faced with numerous threats to its populations and to its habitat. Due to its limited range and fragmentation of habitat, these threats combined continue to present a threat to its existence. Through population reestablishment, habitat protection, minimization or removal of known threats, and public education and stewardship, this subspecies could be downlisted from endangered to threatened and eventually removed from the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife. Recovery Goals: The long-term recovery goal for the St. Andrew beach mouse is to perpetuate the long-term viability of the subspecies in the wild. This goal is represented by the delisting and removal from the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife. The interim recovery goal is to downlist from endangered to threatened status.

RE: Henderson Beach campground

Love Henderson State Park, Nice large sites with lots of privacy! Topsail is nice but most don't have the privacy Henderson offers.

RE: Long Key State Park. Rat infestation.

We lived on the beach in Florida for ten years and I was surprised at the rat population on the dunes. Big Owls would prey on them at night as well as various snakes. Sounds like the balance is out of whack. I trapped dozens with old fashioned snap traps, boil in between kills. Peanut butter and cheese for bait. Before some of you go out there killing them, be advised that some are protected by law!

RE: Long Key State Park. Rat infestation.

We spent almost a week there a few months back and didn't see a one.

RE: Yellowstone area~other attractions we should see

On the East side of Yellowstone, Cody has the Buffalo Bill Center Museum Complex, Old Trail Town, and the Nightly Rodeo. From Cody, a loop of the Beartooth Highway and Chief Joseph Scenic Byway with a stop in Red Lodge is a nice day trip. Thermopolis has the Hot Springs State Park, Legend Rock Petroglyph Site and the Dinosaur Museum. The Hot Springs State Park, can you get in a natural hot spring or are they just something to see..thanks

RE: Long Key SP, Florida

RE: Gatlinburg (again)

G'burg opened back up today for business. Went there today and it was very busy. Good to see it. Lots of serv-pro and service master trucks around still doing clean up but town is looking good. Seeing the burnt out structures and scorched land first hand really impacts you. The trees are still there mind you, it was all the leaves and underbrush that really burned which lit up the structures, 2500 of them gone. We rode over on Friday morning when it opened up, Chalet Village was almost all gone. Yes it was very disturbing seeing all of that devastation and knowing what the guest and residents up there went through getting down off the side of that mountain.

RE: GSMNP and Gatlinburg fires

From a friend that lives there Fire update: I just evacuated my house. There is a fire by the middle school in pigeon forge. I don't have the news so I have no idea what is being broadcasted but I do have a firefighter in Gatlinburg literally in the middle of the fires who is trying to keep me informed as much as he can. So I will tell you briefly what I know: First off if you've been following my post, Damian is okay! He was trapped in a fire at park vista with no way out. They finally figured out how to get out and saved him and his crew. Let's just say he text me and told me he loved me and that there was no way out of this fire. By the grace of God and all your prayers, he got out of that fire. Thank you so much! Gatlinburg is completely on fire. Everything. Last time I talked to him he was sitting watching as his station was about to burn. He was watching people sit outside their houses as they watched them burn down just sobbing. People are trapped in their houses and rescue very well may not be able to get to them. And that's not from a lack of trying. His words to me tonight were they have called EVERY body they know to call in and they are LOSING. He is tired. They all are sooo tired. If you are in Gatlinburg and not leaving by choice, stop. Leave. You are putting every emergency personnel lives in danger by staying. I haven't heard from Damian in a bit. Please keep them in your prayers. We live in the city of pigeon forge and just evacuated our home. I will update again in about an hour when I can talk more and we are safe away from all the fires. I'm going to ask again, please pray for our emergency personnel. I just had to pack up my entire family and leave Damian behind. Wives and children want them to come home safe in one piece. Please please pray. This will be in our history books. Have you heard anymore from your friend?

RE: Tires for F-150

Quick update on my tires, BF Goodrich A/T T/A KO2.275/60/R20 I made a trip up from Florida to North Carolina over Thanksgiving and I absolutely love my tires. Not only do they look good, they were quiet and I may have lost a mile to the gallon on fuel economy but according to my trucks fuel economy gauge I didn't even lose that much. I'm stoke about these so far. Brulaz, I was told that they are getting just as good of mileage or more on the highway out of these than they are of any of All Terrain tires. If you look on You Tube you can easily find reviews on these tires and I have yet to find a negative one.
