RE: Signs, signs, everywhere there's signs.....

We're currently in NC. Not sure if it's a statewide phenomenon, but it's at least across 3 counties. EVERY bridge, even those over a tiny dry wash (and there are a lot of them)is named and signed, such as, "Emmett P. Whatshisface Bridge". Who knows what those signs cost and where the funds come from. I'd bet on at least a couple hundred each to produce and place.

RE: Dish Tailgater

noplace2, Thanks, have another cocktail. Don't get the reference. I enjoy 2 drinks/week and this wasn't my night. Still don't understand why your Tailgater blowing over would be that important. You set it back upright, reset the receiver (5 minutes tops?) and get on with your life. What am I missing?

RE: Getting expensive

They are absurdly priced but those RV resorts are in the areas I wish to travel. Sure I could go somewhere else, but I wouldn't be where I want to be. . And therein lies a critical difference. No harm, no foul. Enjoy the rest of your time on the planet.

RE: Getting expensive

Depends on location. In the areas of CA I enjoy visiting a nice RV park can easily be $80-$100 or more. I'm seriously interested in what you define as "nice" and can justify that rate. Not in any way condemning your choices, just really want to know.

RE: Dish Tailgater

We have one. My question is: If it blows over, so?

RE: Getting expensive

SO MANY PLACES NOW WON'T EVEN LET YOU BOONDOCK Been at this for MANY years. We don't do it often but we do do it. We can "boondock" within 10 minutes of wherever we choose. Really. We are 45' nose to tail connected truck to 5'er. Just for starters, try churches, obviously not on Saturday night or Sunday morning. You will have a peaceful night and we have never been bothered. Of course there are always the standbys like Walmart, Lowes, etc. Those can be very bright and noisy. We have pulled over well off of a country road and spent a lovely night. Point is, there are MANY opportunities out there. Utilize them or be afraid, be very afraid! :)

RE: Getting expensive

I was at Walgreens this morning. A package of 2 Tweenkies is $1.79 Yes Willie, I've looked at your posts for years. Was a private pilot for a very long time and am a bit envious of your years as an AP but never regretted not going there. Flew where I wanted and with whom I wanted. OK, didn't make the $$ you did. BUT, if you amortize the cost of your "coach" over the times you've spent in it on the road over the past 11 years including site fees, fuel, insurance etc, I'm willing to bet that you've outspent me big time. And we've done this 24/7/365 X 13.3 years. Not accusing you of anything. Just saying that there are far less expensive ways of doing this. Hopefully the OP has gotten some insight. And BTW Willie, I understand that you are Hispanic, but Twinkies are still not "Tweenkies" LOL

RE: Getting expensive

Homework is required. We've been traveling fulltimers now in our 14th year. Was it cheaper 14 years ago? Yeah, but not by that much. And have the opportunities expanded? Yep. I reached geezerhood in mid 2013. Since then COE parks have been our go-to. Some of the most gorgeous places in the country and for an average of between $10-12/night for a widely spaced site. Pool? No. Hot tub? No. WiFi? No, but available down the road. Activities? Well, for us, a 5 mile hike/day is ample, but no on the silly (to us) orchestrated stuff. Bingo? Seriously? And to add to that, we are currently in a 22 site park in the NC hills at 2,000 ft. with our nearest neighbor 500' away. The leaves are turning and falling, it is so quiet that you can hear that ubiquitous pin drop and because we like it so much we signed on for a month. Ready for it? With NO discounts we are paying $265 + electric (for us about $25) for the month. That includes water, sewer, good cable TV with about 40 channels, very good WiFi, and some of the nicest owners we've encountered. If my math is correct, that works out to less than $9.70/night. Yes, a remote find, but there are a lot of these jewels out here if you spend the time looking for them. And no, ain't no way I'm telling you where we are!

RE: In Motion Satillite System for Motor Home

if grandkids are traveling with us, keeps them occupied. That is truly sad. :(

RE: Getting expensive

I was talking with a friend about going to Alaska a few years ago. It was something on my 'bucket list' after I retired. The price of fuel was going up and I was starting to question if I should go or not. We spent 5 months in AK in '08. If you recall, fuel was at its highest point ever, before or since. $5+/US gal in AK and upper $4's through Canada. We watched bears fishing for salmon and a mom and 2 cubs walk through our site. We are FAR from upper income people, but we made it happen. Would we do it again with the same circumstances? H*** yes!

RE: Getting expensive

True but is it still worth it? As someone else said, only you can make that call. Sitting around a campfire, watching the northern lights in the distance, a hot cup of coffee (or the beverage du jour) and the company of someone you love. Absolutely priceless.

They still make those? :)

RE: Satellite TV

I failed to mention earlier that, if TV were to go away completely, we wouldn't miss it. Different strokes.

RE: Satellite TV

We've been fulltime travelers now in our 14th year. We've had satellite TV 3 times and have every time found it wanting. Our last TV excursion was with an automatic Tailgater from DISH. Loved the no-brainer setup, (will NEVER set up another stand-set dish) hated the reception. If, when one is in the sort of places we prefer (heavily wooded), fugedaboutit. Wife insists that we keep the equipment since we can activate for a month at a time without paying any other fees. She WAY cares more about TV than do I. Peace be with us. :)

RE: Park Models RV or Not?

A lot of people live in there RV full time should that make them conform to mobile home standards? If they have it permanently located and it does not move during a year, then the answer is certainly "yes".

OK, I'm a dunce. I'll ask it one last time. What does this stuff accomplish? Anyone?

RE: Cost of staying connected.......

Since I see you are here you must be staring at a screen too!! Remember that before you yell at me THINK..... Just Saying. My apologies. Sometimes when I want to add emphasis to a word, I forget that caps to some people means yelling. Is/was not my intent. I think we are pretty much on the same page in terms of connectivity, but all realms together, I spend less than an hour/day staring at any screen. And trust me when I tell you that I have never been bored enough to pick up a phone.

RE: DEF addative

OK, someone please enlighten me. I have an older 7.3L TD and haven't a clue as to what this stuff is. I only know that I don't need it. But seriously, what does it do?

RE: Park Models RV or Not?

RV= Recreational Vehicle. For all practical purposes, park models don't move, therefor aren't vehicles. What's not to understand?
