RE: how to store folding camping chairs?

I bought several yards of "fake" leather-like stuff at the fabric store. Watch their sales, usually before all Holidays. I will be making one big pillowcase to slip over our 2 folding (not bag) chairs. Chairs can lean against the trailer, won't scratch and stay dry.

RE: Very poor customer service (rant)

Sometimes customer service tells a caller it has been shipped, when in fact, it has not, just to shift the blame to the delivery company. A family member was a rural mail deliverer for years. A farmer waited at the mail box and cussed him up one side and down the other because his check for livestock sold was not delivered. He had called the auction company and they assured him it had been mailed already. Rural carrier watched for the check to come AND CLEARLY it was postmarked a few days later than the auction company claimed putting it in the mail. Postmarks don't lie, but some people do.

RE: Rice cooker meals??

This is my 2nd cheap-o Black/Decker and use it often for rice and steaming vegetables. Couldn't live without one, so when my first one quit, I got lucky and found a brand new one at a garage sale for $1.

RE: Snacks / light meal ideas

We use all the above and if packing a sandwich from home, I like to use the cocktail bread. A couple of those are just the right size.

RE: Pill Bottles

Maybe check with the local Animal Shelter ? I heard once they use them in various ways. I hate to throw something away that can be used by someone else, but sometimes it's the only alternative.

RE: Estate Sale Costs

I had my parents estate sale myself. No siblings. DH helped a lot and a dear cousin showed up several times. Would I do it again? Yes.

RE: Ft Worth Stockyards RV park

Stay at the CoE parks at Lake Benbrook Great tip, thank you. We're here now and took a ride through after setting up. Maybe there's some closed areas, but we honestly didn't see any.

RE: Favorite Breakfast

Danish Aebelskiver in Mom's cast iron pan. Ball-shaped pancakes, break open and add butter, syrup or a dab of jelly. Left overs are good cold too, roll them in sugar.

RE: Favorite Breakfast

Biscuits and Gravy is a real treat. And it's not real labor intensive if you use the "Crack em and Bake em" biscuits from the dairy case. Gravy is just a matter of frying some real good breakfast sausage adding a little butter or margarine to the sausage, then sprinkle with maybe a 1/4 cup of flour and stirring til it's all incorporated with the butter and sausage, then add milk and stir til it's gravy. Serve that over the biscuits and don't forget the Tabasco! Might want to try the frozen biscuits in the blue bag (Pillsbury) sometime. Really good, I think.

RE: Found Money!

After a certain amount of time, unclaimed funds get turned over to the State and they eventually publish names in the paper. We're still waiting for our name or friends/relatives names to show up !!

There was a barley salad at a potluck last week and I didn't find out who made it. There was tomatoes and chopped vegetables besides barley. Very good and healthy. I can wing the salad ingredients, but can you supply me a recipe for the dressing? Many thanks

RE: Southeastern Wisconsin to Mt. Rushmore- need advice:)

Sioux Falls, SD has beautiful Falls Park but there's no camping there and I think that's what you're looking for.

Ft Worth Stockyards RV park

Any experience with Ft Worth Texas RV park in the historic stockyards area? I know it's 21 sites, rustic, elec/water only. We're planning a night in that area.

RE: Tucson RV park

So glad for the 4 days we spent at Gilbert Ray. Unique experience we won't get anywhere else among the cactus. Peaceful.

RE: What's the best way to transfer funds when selling an RV?

You can also call the buyer's bank and ask if their account has the funds to cover the check. If the answer is yes, you can have the amount of the check frozen so the check is good when you arrive. back in the old days that question was answered on the phone or in person, not done anymore.

Towing safety opinion please

I have a 2015 Colorado V6 gas with towing package and Class 3 Hitch. Can I safely pull a travel trailer 4180# dry weight and tongue weight 490# with an equalizer hitch ? I realize I have more cargo weight and hitch weight when loaded.

Increased room in refrigerator !

I was forever trying to cram produce in the 2 short refrigerator drawers until one day I removed them all together and stored them away. Made so much more room and works for me.

RE: First Snowbird adventure

Second year for us. We bring RV in from storage a couple of days ahead and park it out of the way at a friend's business parking lot (with permission). Day before we left, 6" of snow fell, the guys came and cleaned the parking lot and left a nice high windrow of snow along our rv, so we had to move it by hand before we could get out of there! Last year we stayed in motels on the way down and this yr we were determined to sleep in the rv and save the money. First night at a fairgrounds and had electricity !!! $11 in the drop box and we were more than happy to do that !!! Simplified things a lot.

RE: Carrying chairs without a ladder

After this trip, I plan to make a "pillowcase" type cover for our ancient aluminum folding chairs. This will keep them from rubbing against something during travel or hooking on something and preventing me from pulling them out.
