RE: Single traveler

When traveling alone, I am far more careful about knowing my route and rest stops for the day. Figuring it out as I drive only works when I have a co-pilot.

RE: Sioux Falls, SD

Quality Inn and Suites is at the intersection of I-29 and I-90. Has truck parking. Upcharge for pets. Flying J two blocks away. Edit: Truck parking is on the service road that encircles the hotel parking lot. There are no other businesses on the service road, just an alfalfa field.

RE: looking for electric skillet breakfast casserole recipe

A simple meat n' potatoes skillet breakfast is an easy one-pan meal, if you don't mind the occasional stirring. I cut in big pieces potatoes, sweet potatoes, onion, mushroom, green pepper and kielbasa (or leftover brats) then toss in olive oil and a 1/2 packet of potato seasoning. Wow -- this sounds really good! Please, what's potato seasoning??

RE: De- winterizing 2006 coachman cross country/sport coach

Our water heater bypass valves were in the bedroom, easily reached by removing the bottom drawer on the left in the Sportcoach (3 slides).

RE: Mount Rushmore in April

If you are looking for campgrounds there are three in the area that I can think of that are usually open then. Try Beaver Lake and Custer's Gulch in Custer or Horse Thief in Hill City. Call ahead to see that water is on, and bath houses are open.

RE: Mount Rushmore in April

Mt Rushmore is open and has a pretty, accessible trail to the base where you can take a stroller. Custer State Park -drive wildlife loop and Needles Highway The Mammoth Site in Hot Springs Natl, Natural Landmark -- excellent and unique Wind Cave NP -- open, tours running Jewel Cave Natl Mon -- open weekdays with tours running Journey Museum in Rapid City -- regional history and geology, open daily (Sunday is afternoon only). Badlands NP -- about 90 minutes from Mt. Rushmore. Park and visitor center open. Rangers will point out where the herds are (buffalo, bighorn sheep). Minuteman. Missile NHS -- next door to Badlands NP Looks like forecasted weather is highs in 50s and 60s, lows in 30s. Might change as the date gets closer. That said, spring weather is variable. It was in the 60s on Saturday and it's snowing today, forecasted a week ago. Rapid City and Badlands NP are often warmer than Mt. Rushmore due to elevation difference.

RE: Australian Lamb or What?

There is excellent lamb grown in our area and throughout the Great Plains, so I personally don't buy imported lamb. Supporting local producers and all. :)

RE: Belgian Waffle

Love a mystery! Well, if you look at the ingredients, most are bland and decidedly not delicious (flour, oil, baking powder, milk, eggs). My first choice for boosting the flavor would be to add sugar, which should also improve browning. Other options would be using melted butter instead of oil in the batter, and swapping whole wheat flour for a couple tablespoons of the flour. A bourbon based vanilla also helps. Please let us know how you search continues.

RE: Minnesota Travel

For Twin Cities, the rv park at Mystic Lake Casino has what you seek. The casino in Hinckley Has a lovely rv park. In the Duluth region train tracks fan out from the port like a spiderweb, so expect train noise. Be sure to take the boat tour of the port, and tour the S.S. William Irvin. We also really enjoyed the Congdon mansion. There is a lot to see and do within 50 miles of Duluth!

RE: How did you handle spouse retiring?

We are in our 50s and are new retires. I have been the homemaker and DH was the workaholic. We talked many times about the kind of retirement we hoped for, and how we want, and don't want, to spend our time. DH has had no hobbies and little free time, so we knew he needed new things to occupy his time. 6+ months into it, we are happy with this new season of life. It helped us to have a vision for our retirement, to know what we were looking forward to both as individuals and as a couple. We don't have it all figured out yet, but we tell ourselves that this first year is about adjusting and adapting.

RE: Stainless Steel Cookware?????

When it comes to SS, sticking and scorching are directly related to the thickness of the pan bottoms. Heavier bottomed pans tend to perform better and cost more than thinner ones.

RE: Mexican vanilla-Rooster or not?

I like the Nielsen-Massey brand. Nothing cheap about it, though. Contains water, booze, sugar, vanilla bean extractives. That's all.

RE: What do you have in your cupboards?

Can't believe we're on page 3 and no one has mentioned duct tape. I have a ziplock with minimal office supplies -- envelopes, stamps, Scotch tape, rubber bands, tiny stapler, half size Manila envelopes Sharpies, masking tape Swiffer duster, Pledge, Windex, Dawn, microfiber cleaning cloths Broom and dustpan Fire extinguishers Wastebaskets Fridge thermometer

RE: Camping Altercations?

A crowded County campground, 11:30 pm on a Wednesday. The place is quiet enough that we're snoozing away. Then the loud music started...with bad drunken karaoke. The sheriff showed up in a golf cart and it got quiet fast. Still makes us chuckle. It's a rare individual who thinks camping = karaoke.

RE: Camping at Disney World

I've read their reservation system glitchy. Try searching a two week trip covering your dates, then you can back off of the dates you don't want. If not call them. Edited to add: first week of April 2014 is peak spring break season. Not sure if the campground fills up.

RE: Regional Weirdness Examples

Sometime left lane driver here. In rural areas where traffic is light, I don't care what lane people drive in. Often one lane, rather than both, gets resurfaced. Add in seasonal frost heaves and there is often a noticeable difference in ride between the right and left lane on our divided highways. Maybe that's an upper Plains thing??

RE: Do you rent out your coach?

Um, no. Only one possible exception would be my BIL who has been R bing far longer than I have.
