RE: Veggies in sealed mason jars

Why don't you just use the jar sealer that you can get with vacuum sealer? I would think spending $8-$10 for one would be much easier and would work better than trying to put holes and using tape over hole. Can't say about salad fixings, but I do use the jar sealer with regular lids to keep things like crackers less susceptible to our humidity here in the south.

weight distribution hitch?

my brother is looking at buying smaller single axle TT. Only 18 ft total length, and 3200 gross weight. He knows he will have to add a brake controller to his F150, but will he need to use WD type hitch? I have no experience with smaller/lighter TT.

RE: Roaming Rvers November Rally at Don Carter State Park

Made my reservation.. Thursday-Sunday. planning to do a little genealogy side trip. My dad's father was born in the area, his granddad built a grist mill in the 1830's in the area, so several generations lived nearby

RE: cookware and dishes

Anyone using Pyrex should do a search on "exploding Pyrex". The company changed the type of glass they use and newer ones can explode when removed from the oven. Beemerphile1, I don't have to worry about that. Some of my Pyrex is almost as old as I am. LOL. My Dad worked for hardware company and was always bringing home pieces of sets from damaged sets. When I moved away from home, I got a good start and then I got a more from my grandparents home and then my mom's when she downsized. So other than a couple of pieces that are 25-30 years old, the rest are actually antiques now. Made when Pyrex advertised you could take from freezer directly to hot oven and the reverse.

RE: Military Campgrounds

Concord 05, not an answer to your question because I don't know, but a separate question. Were you really at Ft Bragg? Ft Benning in GA has a Uchee Creek that the campground is main post. I cross Uchee Creek else where on base, everytime I go visit my mom. I was just wondering if there is a creek by the same name at Ft Bragg (500 miles away)

cookware and dishes

I have a slight obsession with good cookware and dishes. I see lots of folks use Corelle in their RV, but I haven't seen comments on pots/pans and bowls. I plan to carry decent pans (I hate cheap ones), but wonder if anyone carries old fashioned Corning Ware and Pyrex Ware. I use my Corning an Pyrex almost every day and can't imagine cooking without it. Does anyone carry Corning/Pyrex and is there some special hints to keep it safe while traveling?

RE: Ocean Lakes Family Campground - HOLY GOLF CARTS!!!!!!

Stayed at MB State Park last week and there were plenty of golf carts there too, but most I saw were very aware of folks walking/riding bikes in campground. As my daughter said, since MB is known as big golfing area, it makes sense that golf carts are a big thing there. Her in-laws bought condo/timeshare there for the golfing opportunities.

RE: Dog House (Engine Hump) Cup Holder & Organizer

I put a pedestal mount on mine and use a small table while driving. When we camp we put a larger table on top of that one and it is supported on the dash as well as the table. It seats 3 with a folding chair and is much larger than the factory table. My dinette got taken out and replaced with real furniture. The old top got cut up and used as end tables. Very happy with this set up. I can only partially visualize this... Can you post a picture?

RE: Roaming RVers September Rally at Tallulah Gorge SP

McDaniel family, you might try wanderinglabs.com. It allows you to put a site type and have it search regularly for openings/cancellations. Rest of group, wish I could make this one, but it is not likely. planning for November. Had a great trip to MB State Park with DD and Granddaughters. Only challenge was poor dog had a hard time finding somewhere out of the way to lay.

RE: Senior pass increase

Not sure where all the stories with different dates are coming from but the FEDERAL FISCAL YEAR begins 1 Oct. Most changes are effective that date for accounting/audit-ability purposes. And yes, we are working hard to make every process audit-ability and financially safe and smart.

RE: Can a total RV newbie be a campground host?

Not sure how many state park host positions are on volunteer.gov, but many of the state parks have info or listings on their website. I would say if you have done the jobs that you say you have, you can learn many of the basics quickly. Most of the host type work you would do, would be basic common sense. I had a host help me get my awning shut and ziptied closed when the arm got bent during a storm. Many years later, at the same park, a host helped me catch the water that was in sewer hose, when I discovered the sewer connection was stopped up. (I didn't have a bucket without a hole in it)

RE: Roaming Rvers -Bald Ridge Campground July 7th -July 9,2017

would love to join you guys but heading to Raleigh (and taking Mom) for my new granddaughter's christening the weekend before and then to Myrtle Beach to introduce both granddaughters (now 4 and 6 mos) to RV camping later in July. If I don't get the chance to see you before, hoping to make Don Carter in Nov. Since it is Veteran's Day weekend, I should have a 4 day weekend.

RE: 5 minutes and in ER

My mom was doing last minute load of stuff into their RV just before leaving to meet me. Several hours after I expected them, I got a call from my dad. She had stumbled down house steps and with her arms full of stuff to go in MH, ran into the side at full speed. Didn't break anything she had, but smashed her finger between the stuff and side of RV. split her finger open and turned her wedding ring into an oval. took the ER over an hour to cut her wide wedding band off. They still came camping.. she said she could sit around doing nothing at state park as easily as she could at home.

RE: Lookin for FW w/ kitchen on drive side& windows on camp side

I can't add anything as to 5er's with this type floorplan, except to say I feel your pain. I am looking for a Class A with the same thing, driver's side kitchen and windows on campsite side. I have found no way until I look at floorplan or pictures to know. However, I have gotten pretty good and guessing by looking at windows in first couple of pics. I have begun making a list of floorplans that have the driver side kitchen.

RE: Savannah GA area CG

I wanna ask a specific question for those that mentioned Hardeville. Is is somewhere that a single female would be comfortable in TT? for an overnight? I am not scary, but just don't want to go anywhere too much like city. I usually camp in state parks or COE

RE: Edisto beach State park

kerrlakeroo, thanks for suggesting Myrtle Beach State Park. It is a little further north than I wanted to go, but they had sites available for the week, and it appears walking to beach from campsite is doable (even with 4yr old and 8mo old). Made my reservations today. Just couldn't make my DD drive 8 hrs with two babies and dog, for us to then make 3 hour drive to beach. Now she just has 3-4 hour drive.. and I have the long one. Now to figure the best way to get there.. and where to stop overnight enroute

RE: Edisto beach State park

kerrlakeroo, looking for a beach park and Edisto had sites available during the time we can meet. Any suggestions for beach campgrounds along the SC coast. DD is in NC and I am in S GA, so SC would be middle ground and easier drive for DD.

Edisto beach State park

considering a trip to Edisto Beach in July, will be meeting DD and 2 DGD (4yr old and 8 mo old) along with their Dog. I know beach campground is still closed. My question is how far is walk to beach from Live Oak section. I can't really tell. Not sure the map is to scale. Is it too far carrying 4 yr old and her stuff along with baby and stuff? will likely leave dog in AC while we are on beach, so it needs to be close enough we can go back and forth without it being a major undertaking. currently have reservations in FL at ST Joseph Penisula, but considering move to SC to make trip easier on DD.
