RE: Outdated paint scheme => Vinyl Strips?

A sign shop might apply graphics, provided the current decals and the surrounding surface are in good condition. A knowledgeable graphics person should test your old ones first with a "test tape", and not take the job if the old graphics are breaking down under pressure. A good good vinyl wrap is durable. Cheap materials, a poor surface, or lack of training can make a project turn into a mess a few months down the road.

RE: Comforters

Our original one is a deep purple satin. Toss pillows are too, with black and gold trim. Unfortunately they coordinate with the ugly valances and wallpaper border. You know that there was a guy somewhere who saw that stuff on a sample board and said yep, that looks great. I'd love to see his 1980's style house. I have a few projects coming up.

RE: Do you RV without your significant other?

Verizon has the best coverage but your mileage may differ. You may be able to call ahead about cell coverage. Also there are various cell amplifiers/antennas that can help with weak cell signals. Wilson is one of the best. We have Verizon. Thanks for the tip about amplifiers!!

RE: Do you RV without your significant other?

Thanks, Oasisbob. You bring up a good point: cell phone dead zones. Daily contact would be important for us, so I should think about getting somewhere with a cell signal or wifi daily. Phone booths have gone the way of the dinosaur, but maybe it's possible to use a land line phone with a prepaid long-distance card??? Hmmm....

Do you RV without your significant other?

I'd like to hear from couples who don't always RV together. Why do you do it? Do you take any additional steps due to being on the road alone, like checking in? My story: DH an I have been hoping to snowbird someday. He is gone for work for a couple of months in the spring and fall. Rather than sit home alone, I think I'd like to slowly work my way south with the RV in the fall. DH could fly down and meet me, and we'd enjoy warmer locales together for a few months. In the spring he'd fly home to work, and I'd take a month to slowly make my way home in the RV. However, now that it's time to make reservations for next winter, DH isn't comfortable with me heading out alone or going places where I know no one. So, we're somewhere in between dreams and plans right now. I am very comfortable traveling, and being on my own. I have made RV trips without him closer to home, for a few days at a time, and even had to trouble shoot a few issues. Honestly, I know far more about our RV and its equipment than DH does, even if I do think a screwdriver is something you drink. That's part of DH's concern. Anyway, I'd be interested in hearing from others who hit the road with someone back home.

RE: Interior of Our Coaches

Fun idea for a thread! Would contribute photos, but the RV is in storage another three months.

Fuel surcharges still in place

When fuel prices began to climb from about $3.50 to +$4 per gallon, lots of places began adding fuel surcharges. Airplane tickets, taxi cabs, UPS, couriers, and other services all added a line to their bills for fuel surcharge. Delivery charges went up for flowers, heck, for everything. Those surcharges are still in place even though fuel costs have dropped by more than 25%. Not holding my breath waiting for them to go away. What do you think?

RE: Cooking question

We make bacon on the grill, cooking it on a "pan" made of two thicknesses of aluminum foil. When done cooking, just let the fat solidify on the grill, then either save it or toss it. I usually make onions outdoors, too, either sliced on the grill or plug in the electric skillet at the shore and put it on the picnic table.

RE: Plans for 2015 Mt. Rushmore Trip

Yellowstone is great, but it's another 500+ miles each way from Ellsworth AFB/Mt. Rushmore. Personally, I'd want another 6 days just to see Yellowstone. However, to fill up a week in the Black Hills, check out Hot Springs Mammoth Site, Custer State Park and the Needles Hwy, Wind Cave National Park, Jewel Cave Natl Monument, hike to Harney Peak, float on Lake Sheridan, try the Circle B Ranch Chuckwagon Dinner Show in Hill City, the Journey Museum and the School of Mines Museum in Rapid City, drive Spearfish Canyon scenic byway, Devil's Tower in WY....

RE: SOS: share your recipe

Love it. One of the few dishes in dear Dad's repertoire. We like basic white sauce and rinse the chipped beef briefly before adding to the sauce to cut some of the saltiness. Creamed peas on toast makes me feel like a kid again, too. Happy days :)

RE: How to Make the Leap

We bought our MH some years ago while our kids were still in school and DH was working full time. Our hope was that when they left the nest, we'd be snowbirds. It was our first RV. It came from someone we knew, at what we felt was a good price. We aren't particularly handy, but we're prepared to pay others who are. That was five years ago. We've since traded the MH for a few more feet and a tag axle, and DH is semi-retired and works from home. The RV sits parked in our shop much of the year, but we aren't bothered by that. When we use it, we love the space and level of comfort. There is enough storage for us to put things away and be well organized. Since I do most of the driving, setup, and takedown, I like the ease of a MH. We will be empty nesters in Sept and plan to spend several months traveling. Downsides?? We need a towed for getting around day to day. Second, we have one bed for us and one sleeper sofa that the two kids share. Anyone else has to sleep on the floor. That also means the bed needs to be made up each night and taken down each morning. Third, our size keeps us out of some campgrounds and parks due to site length or narrow streets/tight turns. Can't think of others. We really enjoy it.

RE: Has anyone had a run in with any WILD animals?

Holy Toledo! A little warning prior to giant snake photos would be nice. Knew this thread would get some snakes eventually. Heart pounding well now. :)

RE: Mid West Trip this Spring / How early can you visit

If you want to see some notable Midwest points of interest, there are many depending on your route. For example, Lincoln's home and library (Springfield, IL), the Durham Museum (Omaha), etc. Most National Parks and Monuments tend to be historical in nature across the Plains (battle fields, pioneering, Lewis and Clark) until you hit the Black Hills or the Rockies. They are open year-round. What kinds of things are you hoping to see/do? What is your intended route?
