RE: Brief trip to Texas/RGV

We usually take 3 days from Brainerd and they are pretty long days.

RE: Lake Superior Circle Tour TR (pic heavy)

It is a great scenic trip, we took 3 weeks to do it camping at dozens of parks right on the lake.

RE: Was retirement for you a good or not so good choice?

Retired at age 53, poorer but Happy. Never regretted it for a minute. Have rved coast to coast and border to border and beyond. Keep so busy I seldom even have time to read a book.

In nearly 50 years of RVing I have never had tank sensors that worked well.

RE: Any special way to make a reservation at Desert Trails?

Well, after much hunting and clicking, I think it might be best for us to go back to 'plan A', which was to take three months to sample the entire area from Big Bend to Vegas, no reservations anywhere, spending a week or two at a few places of particular interest. Then, if we find an area and park we really like, consider spending the winter in 2018 or 19. I'm thinking we should be able to find places 'on the fly', although they might not always be the best available. Life is, after all, an adventure! Again, thanks for your suggestions. If you happen to see a big fiver and a red truck with Indiana plates, be sure to wave. Sounds like a very good plan.

RE: Any special way to make a reservation at Desert Trails?

They likely prefer 3 - 5 month reservations. 1 month would be considered short term in a Snowbird Park. Some will not take Winter reservations of less than 3 months. However most parks will likely have openings if you just come down.

RE: Best brands for full time and cold weather living

I think it will be a very unpleasant experience anytime the weather is below 20 degrees or so.

RE: Mouse, Mice, Meese, Mousies and more

This has been discussed to death before. I'm a little surprised that a moderator is bringing it up yet again. ...... Just stimulating the discussion, and hey maybe someone found something that actually works.

Mouse, Mice, Meese, Mousies and more

It's Mouse season, what has been your most effective way to keep them out of your RV? We have tried it all with no luck, they built a really nice nest under our bed with Mouse Magic and dryer sheets. Have had fair luck in the past using lots of moth balls but wife couldn't stand the mothball smell. Have sealed every possible entry point I can find. Trapped 6 with good old fashioned spring mouse traps, all inside the RV. OK, lets hear what does and does not work for you.

RE: Crippling insurance costs

Just curious, what is so special about age "71"? Also is there other key ages you need to worry about when it comes to health insurance. At age 71 the scale for premiums takes a drastic jump and continues to climb every year after. My wife turned 71 last November and her premium went from $6.75 per day to $9.36 per day and would go to $13.96 at age 76. Because of a pre-existing condition, my rate is 13.16 per day. For us to go to Texas for 180 days would cost $4053.50 cdn. Only hope is a lottery win. While that is a lot it is about 1/2 of what we paid before going on Medicare at age 65. Our health care cost is out of control but HMO CEO's seem to be doing quit well.

RE: Nuevo Progreso Rant

We go frequently and never had a major issue. Coming back from Canada to the USA has always been more of a hassle for us.

RE: New to this. Best weather in winter??? Help?

Don't forget to checkout the Rio Grande Valley of Texas about 500 parks to chose from.

RE: Algodones, Mx dentist

Interesting read. I look at it much like buying a car. One that comes with a warranty will cost more then one "as is." In the US you have third party options in case something goes wrong. Those options are what you're paying extra for. South of the boarder if something goes wrong the only option you really have is the mercy of the person who screwed it up in the first place. Like Dirty Harry said "you feel lucky?" As far as cheap cleanings, that's an old come on in any store. Milk is only $1.99 but we'll get you on the bread. A fast cheap cleaning that shows up profitable dental work is not a "cheap" cleaning to the patient. Are you saying you had bad experiences with dentists in Mexico or no experience? Our cleanings have been much more thorough than the ones in our Minnesota he town and less pressure to get work done

RE: Algodones, Mx dentist

We and many of our friends have gone to Mexico dentists for many, many years with as good or better results than USA dentists at 25%- 33% of the cost.

RE: Long Term Car Rental in South Florida

For that amount of time buy a used when you get there, sell it when you leave.

You may want to consider Zapada at Falcon Lake.

RE: Mesa Verde National Park

There is a very nice private campground right across from the entrance to the park. Mesa Verde RV Resort.
