RE: Norris or Cumberland Lake

We have a cabin on Norris Lake near Lafollette TN. If you like a small campground there is a big full service Marina on Whitman Hollow Rd with a few full service sites with a public boat ramp nearby. Nice area good Lake access and fewer people than the other marinas. It is run by Whitman Hollow Marina which has a web site if you want to get more information. www.whitmanhollow.com

RE: For those going to see Eclipse

Trying to determine if it would be a significant difference to travel to our cabin near Knoxville TN which will be very near the full eclipse area or to stay in Dayton OH which is in about the 90% area. Any expert advice as to a simple explanation of the advantage of driving south would be appreciated.

RE: Following Lewis and Clark

My wife,a grade school teacher wanted to do this in the 1990s. We picked the trail up in Omaha and for 3 weeks tried to stay as close as possible to the most traveled routes. We ended up at the site of Fort Clatsop near Astoria OR. In those days it was really pretty hard since there were few markers and many keep out signs. In many places you are miles away from the actual route. Been back over a lot of that route and have found much more tourist friendly in recent years. The Arch in Omaha has good information and the Bridge exhibit over freeway as you enter NE is outstanding. There is or was a web site dedicated to the subject.

RE: Planning Retirement Trips / Deciding on a RV

We started with a used class c and then got a new one but found it hard to do much sight seeing when camped without a tow car. Problem is that have to unhook if you have to back up. We often got blocked into some difficult situations that If all people were considerate should not happen. After 10 years we switched to TTs and never regretted the move in 20 more years. If you were going to stay in one place like a whole season a tow car would make sense but we moved often and generally only stayed a few days at each place. Some campgrounds do rent cars.

Cumberland Gap Naional Park

We will be visiting the Park next week and will have our 11 year old grandson with us. And need ideas on things in that area that might appeal to him. He needs to be kept busy. We have been to the visitor center and the Hensley Settlement before and we are considering the Cave Tour this time but other ideas would be appreciated.

RE: Visiting Gettysburg Battlefield Park in RV?

We rented the audio program that takes you to most of the things you will want to see. WE drove our truck because the bus tour would not allow our small dog on and it was very hot and we didn't want to leave her in the TT. Parking is available as stated along the route and you can park and take the tour bus at the visited center.

RE: Campgrounds in the Badlands

You will probably want to stay in the Badlands park with A/C this time of year. If can't get in to it there is a decent RV park near downtown Wall with full service and within walking distance to tourist stuff. Think the Sturgis bike rally is the first part of Aug which you may want to avoid.

RE: What is the strangest thing I've "hit"

Came over a hill near Mendocino CA a few years ago and couldn't avoid hitting tarantulas crossing the road. We set there for about 15 minutes while the migration continued, must of been hundreds,and we could drive on without killing more of them. Found out later it was males looking for females.

RE: Anyone been to Thousand Trails Mt Hood Village RV Resort?

We've stayed there a couple times, had full service and we found sites with shade. A little on the expensive side.

RE: Just bought a '17 Chevy Silverado 1500

I would tow it with my Silverado, just be careful on loading, check final ready to go scale weight and a just if necessary. With proper hitch and set up you should be OK. Don't need a dually oil burner to tow everything.

RE: Coast of Oregon

Most of the OR Parks reserve sites will already be taken but a lot of the parks have some that are held back. We have had good luck if we get to the parks about checkout time and waiting. Check the Or Parks website for which ones are not all reserve. In Southern OR we like Harris Beach near the CA border.

RE: RVing in Europe; planning a 6-8 month adventure

We lived in Italy for a few years. Wife's sister and husband rented a small MH and did a three month trip did Germany, France, Spain and then came to visit us. This was over 15 years ago. Even then they didn't have any problems, except a lot of the campgrounds did not have full service. We go back to Europe at least once a year and are amazed at the popularity of RVing since we lived there. When we were there camping was mostly tent now it's a lot of MH and TTs and new campgrounds with full services in these countries. If we weren't as old as dirt we would be looking into doing a European trip. Life is short wish it took longer to get old - Do it well you can.

RE: Oregon travel

We have gone back to Oregon a lot over the years, I grew up in the Gorge and my wife is from Portland. There are a lot of RV parks both public and private in the Gorge. Most of the State parks have some sites they don't reserve if you get there mid afternoon you have a good chance of getting a site. There is also a county park near Hood river and plenty of private parks on both sides of the river. A few calls should locate something. They all have either train or highway noise or both. Over coast is a little harder and very busy in season but we have done it without reservations, in season, lots of options just don't wait to late in the day.

RE: Planning Trip to Columbia River in OR/WA

Ainsworth is a good place to stay and has some large sites and full hookups. Like said the scenic highway is not for large vehicles in most areas but there are other things you can see. Multnomah falls has a parking lot, several dams tours and fish viewing, Wind Surfing in Hood River, on WA side Beacon Rock, Maryhill Museum and Stone Hinge to name a few,do not try Hood River Bridge very narrow use another one. Could also go to Mt Hood Lodge not that far.

RE: kentucky campgrounds

Might look at Cove Lake TN St Park at exit 35 of I 75 just over the KY border. Close to the Appalachian Museum, Oak Ridge, and Knoxville. Easy access and close to Lafollette facilities and Norris Lake.

RE: Military MWR Campgrounds

Retired 1984 and have had a MH or TT most of the time since and have stayed at lots of MWR campgrounds in all parts of the US. Most of them are as good or better than most commercial operations in my opinion and have the benefit of base facilities. There are also many military rec areas that are in prime locations and are really reasonably priced.We use this site http://www.militarycampgrounds.us/ and the book you can get at the BX on military campgrounds. Really feel safe when camping on base. There are a few that have almost permanent residents and don't want short timers around but these are the exceptions.

RE: Oregon trail Wyoming

We did as much of the Oregon Trail as we could get to about 20 years ago starting in Omaha and ending up at Astoria. My wife was a grade school teacher and wanted material. In those days most of the markers and interesting graves were on private property or way off the major roads. We had a TT at the time and it was difficult to get to some stuff. We have been through there several times since and were amazed at how much on private land is now open to visitors and new information added. There is a book "The Oregon Trail" by Rinker Buck published in 2015 you might want to read if you decide to make the trip. You may want to start in NE and visit the Exhibit that is built over the freeway dedicated to the Oregon Trail. Worth the effort.
