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?

Leaving MH to go home for the holidays

I'm new with hydronic heat. We plan on heading to San Antonio area next fall and returning home in spring. However, we need to fly home for a few weeks at year end. Need advice on what to do with the MH. I'd like to ke to just leave it at our monthly spot, hooked to shore with the thermostat on 60 degrees, unhook water and sewer and leave. We have a hydronic heat system, which means I would have to take it somewhere to winterize and unwinterize. That's why I'm inclined to just leave it hooked to shore, furnace on. What do you advise? Another question, if shore power should go down, the diesel burner would kick in if the temp dropped much below 60 degrees, right? 2010 Mandalay Oasis hydronic heat plus heat pump

RE: In search of cheese

We really enjoyed Frank Lloyd Wright's home and school, "Taliesin", in Spring Green, WI. Heading NE from there across the center of the state, there many cheese shops along the road. Just look for the billboards. Small town grocery stores usually carry locally made items, too, and happily make recommendations and many times have samples. If headed to the UP, check out Whitefish Point for some interesting maritime history. Lake Superior can be ferocious and there are many shipwrecks around Whitefish Point.

RE: Job search

Our state's Dept of Labor is where employers and job seekers go first. It's by far the most comprehensive list of openings in my state, and includes hourly, salaried, contract, and temp jobs. Google SDWorks

RE: Lake Superior Circle tour

Last June 1 we really enjoyed the S shore of Superior. However, there were no boat cruises to Pictured Rocks as the icebergs were large and prevalent. The black flies were just starting near the water in Mackinaw City. And, the bike ride around Mackinac Island was very chilly. It was too cold for Mosquitos. Late spring with cold winds from across the icy water.

RE: Tips for reducing set-up time?

I set up and take down by myself. Without a tow car it takes me about 15 minutes, more if I drag out the patio stuff. If I walk to the site it adds another 5-10 mins. I like a checklist because I don't yet have the steps in my head and it saves me from running in and out. Park and unlock basement Place jack pads Hook to shore, but not if just one night For longer stay set up mat, grill, chairs Level Slides out Satellite TV AC on or open windows

RE: Camping with PTSD

Might it take some pressure off if you didn't stay overnight? For example, we have a lake a few miles out of town with muni and county parks, both with camping. Many locals rent a spot for a few weeks, and will go out every night after work. They grill out , swim, socialize or ride bikes, and go home. The RV is their own cozy hangout, even though they only stay overnight on the weekends.
rolling_rhoda 01/12/15 08:49pm General RVing Issues

Walked out of church this morning with my coat unzipped, no gloves. I commented to DH that it definitely feels warmer this morning, and isn't that a relief? Then we got into the car and the thermometer said 7 degrees. So yeah, it's been bitterly cold for today to feel better. As I type, DH is outside scraping the driveway in a fall jacket and baseball cap (12 degrees). Next winter: Texas

RE: Safe location in Las Vegas with family

For what it's worth... Just last month we were at the Fashion Show Mall, and were headed for the Westgate. We were just going to walk since it was a nice afternoon, so we asked a parking attendant for directions. She and the other attendant both said we shouldn't, because there is a dodgy area in between. There is a swath of large abandoned construction projects on the south side of Circus Circus and across the street to the east. Dodgy? I don't know. Take a look on Google Maps Street View and get an idea. Staying at Circus Circus is popular, but put some thought into your route if you are walking from there to/from the Convention Center.

RE: RV/Travel Trailer Rental?

Just saw another post about RVshare.com. That may be an option for you. It appears that they are an intermediary for owners and leasers to connect. They mention insurance, too. The owners may be private individuals or companies.

RE: RV Sheets

Fitted sheets with elastic all the way around x3. Lands End makes them. Target has several options, too, including the Nate Berkus and Threshold lines. There's Pottery Barn as well.
