RE: USAA Insurance

Had USAA for over fifty years, they are not the cheapest just the best. When our power went out for days and we were gone they credited our bank account for the food in the freezer the next day after I called based on our estimate. When my son wrecked his car they gave a low value but they said send if we could find local ads for same vehicle for more they would match them and they did. My other son's house burned and paid for living expenses for 4 months and repaired the house completely. When some Bozo rear ended us and the guy only had minimum coverage and collision had to pick up the rest they waived the $500 deductible on the rest and let us pick the repair place. Have other good examples -Never had a bad experience and always could talk to a supervisor if I asked.

RE: Costco Card @ SamsClub

You need a Sam's membership card to get in but they will take the Costco Visa card and it works at their gas also but at the regular price not the Sam's.

RE: Black Hills SD in october

Lived in Rapid City for a few years - Oct is a month that should be mild and better than the summer heat or winter cold but you could get about anything.

RE: Great smokey np

If you use I-75 you can take 40 east from Knoxville to Pigeon Forge to Gatlinburg. Oct is a busy in the Park until the leaves are off trees. Several Campgrounds in the park to choose from but no Hook ups in any that I know of.

RE: Replacing taillights

I just went to Harbor Freight and bought their trailer leds for a few bucks and wired them in in place of the old bulb burners and then sealed around to keep dry. Everything worked as before just brighter.

RE: Pulling thru Gatlinburg

We use Twin Creeks RV parkand go through Pigeon Forge we don't have to pull thru Gatlinburg which is a pain since the Twin Creeks campground is before you get to town. Good location close to shopping, restaurants and on the trolley line to the shopping loop and town and the Park entrance. Pigeon Forge is a traffic jam but if you go a couple blocks and use the secondary route it helps a lot. the turn into Twin creeks is a little tight but it is a nice well run campground, a little expensive, you might even see a black bear.

RE: Things to See on SDAK, Wyo, Colo Trip

If went to Deadwood years ago, recommend skipping it, just a big expensive tourist trap (unless you like casinos, and the same goes for Crazy Horse there has been surprisingly little change over the years and is primarily a commercial operation now (these are worth visiting if you haven't done them in the past however. We still like Wall Drug and the Corn Palace in Mitchell worth a short visit.

RE: Is there anyone that just will not go to private campgrounds

Two MHs and two TTs over 30+ years and many campgrounds I can count only 15-20 private ones we have stayed at and only did that as a last resort.

RE: Is Mt. Hood, Oregon worth a couple of days?

Mt Hood Villages in Brightwood is a decent place to stay with full service about 20-30 minutes from the Lodge.

RE: Rapid City here we come.

You probably know the Sturgis Bike rally is going on now. Think is it is over the 14th but there will be a lot of congestion all over the area for a few days even after that. The Fam Camp at the base has been expanded and is good you may have reservations, which are hard to get during the Rally is going on.

RE: New to me '08 R-Vision Trail-lite 30BH new WH?

You might try the RVision Forum someone probably has added a 10 gal tank to TT since it was a popular model. http://r-visioncamping.org/

RE: Anyone do any Ancestry.com DNA tests?-RESULTS IN!

Having taught some gennetics at the local diploma mill many years ago and kinda stayed up as best I could with the field expending so fast. The results are only as good as the data base they come from.As the available data bases expand this will be a great tool for ancestry. Better for males than females (unless you are looking to find out your EVE closness.I am cocerned about how careful these labs are since sample contamination is common with DNA. Also for anything medical my advise is consult an expert before taking any action. Also to be careful which Company you go with since some of them are making really rediculous claims. Middle European ancestry isalso a problem since there was so much migration in that area. That said I am going to have mine done then repeat the process in a few years when the data expands.

RE: Newby needs advice

We have never been full time but have been out for extended trips many times. Had two MHs and two TTs none longer than 24 feet but all with different floorplans. The one 24' MH we had was the easiest to live in for long trips, our 24' TT which you could pull without a problem, gets old after a couple weeks. Floor plan in an RV is very important, wife and I need to have enough space to allow privacy when we are doing different things. You should be able to find a TT you can pull that suits your needs but take time to find the right one. There are a lot of great military famp camps we have used over the years.

RE: Avalanche 1500 pulling 5300 lb trailer

Had a 2005 AV with the 5 sp tranny and towed a 5000lb scale weight loaded to go TT for several years without issues. The 2007 has the 7 sp tranny (I think) which should be a better tower but still think you would be pushing the limit. You might try the on line AV towing forum form some of their expertise.

RE: Cost comparison - motorhome vs. travel trailer

We have had a several of each over the years and there are advantages and disadvantages to both. We have never been full time but if we ever would have(to old now) we would have used a MH with toad. For short trips we prefer a TT. If money is a consideration think the TT is the best way. Think it really comes down on how your going to use tour RV.

RE: Air conditioning on a small generator

We have a Honda 2000 and have run two different 13500 units with it. Struggles at high altitude but otherwise no problem.

RE: Travelling through Mt. St. Helens?

Used to work for the Forest service many years ago in Mt Adams Region but have not been back in that area for a few years. You could go through Trout Lake to Randle. Stop at the Ranger Station and they can give you good map and place to see like the ice caves. Probably still be some tight gravel roads but would be the shortest route. I would take a Class C through it's a very scenic drive and there are campgrounds on the way. The trip through the Columbia River Gorge is very scenic and offers many places to explore for the Kids.

RE: moles

Very interesting animal. Moles primary food source is worms, they don't get along with other moles not even their own off spring and live by themselves in their own borrows. They do kill vegetation but only when they destroy the roots when they dig. They like wet or moist soil. If they die another mole will probably take over the borrow. the damage they cause is primarily when they dig their burrows. No easy way to get rid of them unless you have a cat or dog that hunts them. The easiest way to get rid of them is to find a new burrow and insert a poison pellet inside but then if an animal eats the mole it is also poisoned. You can buy a mole trap and set it up in a new burrow and if you are lucky you might even get one. I actually have killed a couple after many tries. If anyone has a way to get rid of these critters I would love to here it.

RE: Camping in Fairborn Ohio

If you cannot stay at the Base Fam Camp you will probably have to drive at least 15-20 minutes from either John Bryant in Yellow Springs or the KOA. There is a Trailer Park in the middle of Fairborn that at one time would take short stays, don't think they do anymore. Yellow Springs is a nice little town and the State Park is OK if you can get electric -been very hot and humid recently.
