RE: Carrying Emergency Fuel in Jerry Can Attached to TT

Does it really matter what the numbers are or how often you have to stop? The idea behind the point was to have a little extra that can mean a lot if you can use that little extra. No matter if you can go 200 miles or 2000 miles on a tank of gas. A measly 5 or 10 gallons can make it better for some. Get off your high horses. It's not all about you or what you think smeone should or shouldn't do. Now, with that said, anyone have anyways of mounting jerry style cans on a 4" tube bumper? Don't worry, I'm not gonna carry gas. I'm carrying water.

RE: Carrying Emergency Fuel in Jerry Can Attached to TT

I not referring to those that travel into trully remote areas that need more fuel. I referring to those that have TV's with small 25 gallon tanks. You do know that many gas pickup trucks have a fuel tank either less than 25 gals. or close to that number? The F250 we had had less than 30 I believe. And yes we were looking for gas before 200 miles while towing. Our Motorhome has a 55 gallon. And gets about the same gas mileage. But we can now go twice as far. lol.

10 extra gallons is better than none.

RE: Carrying Emergency Fuel in Jerry Can Attached to TT

Glad I came across this thread. Ive been wondering about jerry can style holders we have the water ccans that are jerry can style and wondering about a way to mount them on the back of the motorhome. Most of the holders I am seeing have it where you mount through the back of the holder. Has anyone rigged something up for the rear of a Motorhome or trailer with the 4" bumper? Love to do it where I don't have to drill into anything and not using the trailer hitch receiver.

RE: OCEAN LAKES SET TO BUILD BIG ADDITION TO WATER PARK.

:) The campsites that will be lost are the smaller ones. It is interesting for my curiosity that the park is coming very close to the Jackson's and the preacher's homes. Wonder if they are part of the changes. :@ Just guessing but with the Jackson's Estates being in probate & the Daughters taking over has a lot to do with the improvements being slower or if they just want to get it right. Most of the newer homes there are two story on stilt's. I guess that is the current building code as you do not see any new homes being built on the ground......... I still can't see building a 100-200 thousand dollar home & not owning the land (If you don't pay the annual fees gues you don't own the home anymore)........... I haven't seen any 3 story homes (not counting the space underneath. Might be a couple. The larger homes are much more than $200k, but you are right about not owning the land. The ones over on the beach front pay an extra $15,000 a year for leasing the land. Back at the front of the park it's about $6,000...but that includes use of the amenities, security, water, sewer, cable tv. etc... Ya I know more like 350-400K but I can't think that high :E we have friends that have a site with a single wide with an addition, in Z section that they are trying to sell, the annual $ & all the extra fees & not to mention what they have to pay Horry County annually have gotten to be too much & their kids have no interest in taking it over. Someone local to me (NC) posted a listing on a facebook group of a house they have for sale. It's a 3 bedroom, 2 bath. Looks renovated. Not a huge one, but it appears to be worth the $105k they were asking. The lease fee is $6000 I think they say. I think they say after some renting it out and clearing all costs, that it makes them about $15k a year. I would do it full time, but a bit costly for vacation home, for me that is.

RE: North Carolina RV Communities (Not an MHP or CG)

Thanks for the heads up about Wildflower, Brian. I'll check into that. Yep, it's a pension thing. NC has an extremely narrow exemption for some law enforcement and railroad retirees. Pretty specific as to whom it applies. Mostly aulde phartz such as myself. VA, like MD mentioned above, is just tax happy. jHalf is happy being a Floidian, but it'd be nice to find somewhere cooler in the summer. Hmm...does your area let you park your RV at your house? So many communities don't allow that. Being a law enforcement officer myself here in the state of NC, I work with a lot of retired police officers from NYPD. There is a big following for them here. They have a 10-13 club here...

RE: Blue Ridge Pkwy

If you are referring to the numbers I posted. Those are from the Wikipedia "Blue Ridge Tunnels" page and the number are Maximum height at the tunnel center. Is this the link for Wikipedia you are talking about? It clearly says that the numbers you posted are minimum height.

RE: Best way to do laundry while boondocking?

RE: Solar lights

These are good to use inside because you can hang them using the wire base and the lights swivel around...The picture shows the on/off button black, but ours is a white color and they glow in the dark.

Solar lights

Anyone use the solar lights by d.light? I saw a video of them on a Youtube video that a lady boondocking used them. I asked her where she got them and she said Amazon. I found them and ordered 4 of them. $10.18 each. They claim they work for over 4 hours. I tested one out and it was still going (although a little dimmer) after over 5 hours. They charge in the sun, but they also have cord that you can plug in to charge if on power. It has a USB end so you can use a 110 adpater or 12 volt charger. I would link directly to them, but we offer them in our online store through Amazon and don't want it all to get contstrued. Just passing on somethig that we found and like and think they will be good to use while dry camping. We do have our lights in the motorhome on LED, but they still take away from the battery bank, even if slighlty. This offers some free lighting (after buying them of course). lol http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41MsTIRWyPL.jpg

RE: OCEAN LAKES SET TO BUILD BIG ADDITION TO WATER PARK.

According to Lakewood's website there is no extra fee for the waterpark or any other amenties. At one time the wristband was as wbwood stated but not anymore. But now the wristbands are used to indicate you are a guest at the campground. There is a fee if you need to have the wristband reissued should you misplace yours. As for the $88.00 sites, there are the ones on the end of each road that has pavers, shrubbery and a fire ring. Yeah, we saw those sites and you can probably see them in our drive through video...were not impressed with those sites...the parkign pad was crush and run type material. The patio was pavers (which was fine). I guess the crush and run was better than a lot of the sites we saw. Many had deep ruts in from the heavy rains.

RE: OCEAN LAKES SET TO BUILD BIG ADDITION TO WATER PARK.

we were just at Lakewood for a couple weeks....needs some work but still nice. Wife went over to OL for the county quilt fest....I would not go there camping....from when we were there last it has turned into a highrise jammed mobile home/condo community. There a re far less sites and the sites are crammed together. Won't be long and its all gone IMHO...just housing. Highrise condo community? Are you sure you were at Ocean Lakes? There are homes and some mobile homes there, but it's the same at Lakewood (lakewood just has less and many at OL are much nicer). Some of the homes may be 3 stories high, but they are not high rise. And they are at the entrance and over on the side. I noticed in January that Lakewood is starting to allow some permanents in the middle of the camping area...

RE: Blue Ridge Pkwy

"By looking at that chart, only the minimum height was the numbers posted by the other poster. That's minimum. If you look at the maximimum (center height) that is what the height is in the minimum." ============================================= If you are referring to the numbers I posted. Those are from the Wikipedia "Blue Ridge Tunnels" page and the number are Maximum height at the tunnel center. Those tunnels are both near the southern start of the BRP and I suspect a lot of people start at a point somewhat further north. We did on the trip north and we exited before those tunnels on the way south. Not because of the tunnels but it was just a better spot to use. If you look at the link that magnusfide posted for the BRP, it has the two heights you mentioned. And if you look at the NPS site, they have the same heights posted as the BRP site. Still, not maximum heights of what you are speaking of.
