RE: So you are sitting by the fire, and you hear

It may not be Coyotes!! It might be a high pitched whine from another camper complaining about the campfire! I like the beep beep answer best. I doubt that. We were in a Campground, not a RV resort. And there wasn't another camper within 75 yards of us on our side of the trail, and they were running a generator until dark. So they didn't even hear the Coyotes. But we could hear their Honda running. Which campground? We are hitting Julian Price and Linville Falls next weekend (Labor Day weekend).

RE: Keeping fridge cold while dry camping

You open the fridge to puit stuff in an the warm air in the trailer is obviously going to affect the inside. If you put stuff in the fridge that is not already col, then they will hinder the temp as well, such as bottled water, sodas, uncooled beer, etc. I think the thermometer thing is probably messing your mind as well. Unless you are noticing cooling issues with your items, I wouldn't worry about one. We've never used a thermometer inside the fridge or an additional fan in the fridge. Never needed to as of yet.

RE: What to do with water filters between trips?

Drain, replace the white caps that come with it and set it in the sink.

RE: Asheville NC

Check Reacreation.gov and Reserveamerica.com . You might find some campgrounds without hookups that might have something available.

RE: A week in Top Sail

Thank you all for the advise and reports. We will be there the 3rd week of September and are very excited to finally be able to go. Hoping to find some decent fresh seafood to grill. We will take out bikes-thanks for that suggestion too! We have the place for you! It's between Topsail and Grayton Beach State Park. It's called Goatfeathers Seafood. It's a restaurant with a seafood market in the bottom of it. We went and bought oysters from them. They even steamed them and opened each oyster for us. No extra charge. We originally went to a place out there on 98/30 that looked nice, but their prices were outrageous and were kind of rude. Found the Goatfeathers and was very pleased. Prices good also. Give them a try. Less than 6 miles down 30A from Topsail. Goatfeathers Seafood http://www.goatfeathersseafood.com/ 3865 County Rd 30A, Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459 (850) 267-3342

RE: A week in Top Sail

Make sure to take bikes if you have them. We left ours at home and regretted it every day. you can rent them It would have cost a small fortune for the 5 of us. Think they were $85 each for the week. Just saw one place that said beach cruisers only $55/week...and they give 10% discounts. So you are looking at $50/week. Not bad. Of course you could go down to the walmart and bought new bikes for just a little more.

RE: Georgia mountains

Vogel State Park Great campground nestled in the Mountains, reminds of the Smokey Mountains, nice stream, wooded, lake, etc...... Nice scenic drive to Helen and/or Dahlinghea (both small shops, interesting things to see) Unicoi Nice wooded campground. Close to Helen. Stone Mountain in Atlanta, nice park -not state park- a little more $$$ and summers really hot, north GA a little more reprive in heat, and true mountains. Markiemnark:C Double ditto plus Unicoi State Park has some FHU. There's a pottery museum in nearby Sautee Nacoochee that has crafts, pottery and artwork for sale in the adjacent building. It used to be an old school. Interesting place. Double triple ditto on Unicoi.... FHU sites (some) and the town of helen offers some unique shopping. It's made to look like an old bavarian village. If you get to hot, you can tube the 'hooch....

RE: Traveling with a cat in a Roadtrek

Check out a guy on you tube who travels with a cat full time. His name is Nomadic Fanatic. He has many videos on there with his cat in the picture most of the time. Wander Dano on youtube is a better example. He has two cats that travels with him in his Class B.

Fans and Dust

In our sticks-n-bricks, we have a floor fan that we use at night. It's not needed, but we like the feel and noise of it. The other day, I noticed that it had gotten somewhat dusty. I pulled the cover off and took a damp washcloth and wiped it all down. Removing the dust from the fan cover/grate (front and back) and the fan blades. I put it back to ttogether and when I turned it on that night, I was very surprised at how much more air flow there was. It didn't appear badly dusted, but apparently it does not take very much to affect the performance. This reminds me I need to check/clean the fans/screens in the vents of the RV. Just a friendly reminder about this sort of thing.

RE: Your definition of quite time (sp)

Haven't ever seen a hard-and-fast stated definition. For us, it means no unnecessary noise that might annoy or disturb the campers in the nearby sites.This. And that definitely includes generators. ;) Parks that I have been to that allow generators, usually have it posted for no generator use during quiet hours.

RE: Your definition of quite time (sp)

Example would 8 people sitting around a campfire 10:05 pm talking in normal tone. Is that a violation? Curious what the thoughts are, Is the mother inside her tent reading a story to a small person in a tone the same as above. A violation, On a serious note where do you hang your hat on the issue Thanks. Great group No hard rule (unless park has it). But there are different variables. Size of the sites. Is anyone in the site)s) adjacent. Are the people in the sites still awake? We stayed at a private campground once and the sites were small. The fire ring for the site next door was literally just a few feet from the TT we had (and right outside our bedroom).I was woken up at about 1am to people talking, music and laughing. The reason being was because our A/C turned off. Before it must of muffled the sound. I looked out the window and the people next door were outside under the awning. An hour or so later, the voices got louder. I looked out my bedroom window and saw the people next start a campfire and were sitting around it talking. I could hear every word they said. And some of it was stuff they didn't want others to hear, i'm sure. I made all kind of noises to try and let them know that they could be heard. But they kept on. Finally at about 3 am or so, I got up and went outside and walked around and told them we could hear them, every word they said and asked if they could be quiet. I went back in side and heard one of them make a comment about us eavesdropping. If it were the night before, I probably would of made such a deal about it. But we were leaving that morning and had a long drive ahead of us and we needed our rest. I did let the office know upon checking out that morning about what I had to do.

RE: I swear times runs x10 faster

When we have a week of camping it feels like a long time after about 2 or 3 days. But then about Wednesday or Thursday, it's like oh dang, we gotta leave soon!

RE: Florida

You will probably have better luck if you don't plan on staying more than a night or two at the most. Most people that go there will make reservations for a week or more.

RE: Outer Banks or Virginia Beach?

I would rather stay away from the Outer Banks. First there is no place called the Outer Banks on any Map in the world. Map of Outer Banks. Written on the map.... :)

RE: Coffe pot for boondocking

I wouldn't want to do that ^ thing 10 times on a cool mountain morning. The percolator sits on the stove, tiny little flame under it, instantly ready to warm my never-empty mug. You could accuse me of valuing quantity over quality, when it comes to morning coffee, and I wouldn't necessarily disagree.:) 10 times? You got a coffee problem...lol We normally only drink a cup or two a piece. We have two of the melita cones. They are only about $5 each.

RE: Coffe pot for boondocking

I purchased an AeroPressKit for camping. I liked the coffee it made so much that it is the way I make coffee at home now. Easy to use. All you need is a pot of boiling water. Quick preparation. Easy clean up. You're talking to folks who *boil* their coffee! :B We're using these: http://i.walmartimages.com/i/p/00/05/54/37/64/0005543764000_500X500.jpg Excellent coffee. Can imagine anything easier. Exactly what we use...We have an electric water heater pot type of thing or can heat water on the stove if no hookups.

RE: returning the Oxygenics shower head

We are happy with ours. We had a TT with about a 60 gallon grey tank. We didn't have teh Oxygenics in it. When we camped, we needed to dump the grey tank about every day and half. We didn't practice any water savings at all. We now have a MH with a 31 gallon grey water tank. One of the first things we did, was put in the oxygenics. We are able to go twice as long with half the size of the tank. we can actually go longer using water saving techniques (water on - get wet - water off- lather- water on- rinse- water off, etc). Perhaps the one you got was defective. as you can tell, everyone that answered on here has stated they like theirs and it works well for them.
