RE: Thinking about a trip across country

When the adult kids camp with us we remove our dining table and chairs for the trip. We put an air mattress on the floor. We set it on our bed during the day. Sometimes we use the tent. This trip we are going to try using the tent like a screen house. Take the trip. Great memories! Find interesting places for pit stops along the way. Marcia

RE: Whitefish point, MI parking

Travelnutz, thanks for your info. We will be there late July. I booked a site at the falls. The blueberry and peach ale sound good.

RE: Whitefish point, MI parking

Thank you all for your replies. We are not planning on staying overnight at the point. It is a bit pricey but sounds very interesting. Good point Jay Pat about parking in the direction to leave.

Whitefish point, MI parking

Thinking about stopping at Whitefish Point with trailer in tow. The aerial view shows plenty of parking. I am wondering how crowded it is on a Tuesday in late July. I am going to call and ask them but I wondered if anybody has any thoughts or experience. Marcia

RE: colorado springs rv park choice

best all around for us is Cheyenne Mountain State Park...sits on the south side of town off highway 115. Big X2 on that! One caveat, though they have great hiking/biking trails, if your hiking buddy has 4 legs and a tail they aren’t welcome on the trails X3 ! It is on the side of the mountain overlooking Co. Springs. Above town on south side but not far. We visited Garden of the Gods one day. Sorry, can't comment on the two parks you mentioned. If you have a dog they have the best dog park in Co. Springs called Bear Creek.

RE: Campground help- Columbia Mo area

We stayed one night at Arrow Rock Historic Site campground just west of Columbia, MO. It is approx 10 miles north of I-70. Very nice quiet park. We snagged one of the last spots on a Friday night in August.We stayed in site 47, the most unlevel site in the park. The loop with sites 47,23-28 is on a slope. The rest of the park is pretty flat. We reserved site 40 for the trip home from CO. It is a bit of a drive off I-70 but worth it. We would stay again.

RE: Fastening a coat rack to a wall - no studs

We use an over the door coat/towel rack and hang it over the bathroom door. It has 6 hooks, no weight restriction. I remove it for travel.

RE: Making the jump from tent camping to RVing

Buy used. Maybe rent. Make a wish list. We had a short wish list when looking for our first trailer. We tent camped for 25 years. We had a pop up years ago and knew we didn't want one. Walk around bed, awning, bathroom (not wet bath), hard sided. Bought a 6 year old 17' TT. Really like having all of our stuff ready to roll. Just add food and go. We started a new list the first trip out. Sold it in 6 months. Bought the TT in our signature. On our 3rd truck. You just have to figure out what is the best fit for your needs. Everybody is different. There is a lot to choose from out there! Happy Camping! Marcia

RE: New to Trailer camping, what are some must haves, and wants

A fan to circulate air inside and to blow away the bugs outside. An electric skillet. Nice for cooking outside along with the camp grill. Toaster. A small white folding table to set outside the trailer for cooking, drinks. We have a basket drawer in our freezer in the basement where I stash camping food, fish, cooked burgers, leftovers, steaks all ready to grab and go. I bought the smaller size, mustard, mayo, etc. They fit nice in the trailer fridge door. Refill as needed. I also keep small bottles/containers of oils, spices, sugar, flour, etc. in the trailer. Keep utensils in covered containers. Mice will get in there. We re-purposed a kid size tackle box to hold tools, screws, light bulbs, the special square head screwdriver. We love our Shark Rocket vacuum. Keep a few changes of clothes, shoes, beach sandals,seasonal and jackets, gloves, hats, $1 store rain ponchos so you don't have to pack clothes each trip. A tray w/sides for carrying plates, food, etc in and out of trailer. We usually have pen / paper to write down things to remember to replace, buy when we get home. We have 3 one gallon jugs that we fill with water at home. They ride in the shower. We don't like to drink the water out of the holding tank. A notebook for a trip journal. Broom, rake, Axe, fireplace poker and shovel. Bucket (many uses) A short wood box step for times when it is a big first step in to trailer due to leveling. Outdoor extension cord. We have over time duplicated what is in the house. It is our second home. #1 favorite part of the trailer is the awning! Bathroom and bed off the ground too! Happy Camping! Marcia

RE: Six Month Trip -- Say Hi

I painted a sign with RV.Net and our screen name. It hangs from one of those metal little flag holders you stick in the ground. So far no rv.net people have approached us. Interested in your trip reports. The northwest is on our trip list when we can take off for unlimited time. Have a wonderful and safe trip. Marcia

RE: Lower Missouri/Arkansas trip

X2 on Echo Bluff. I spent a couple weeks there last Fall. The roaming horses are neat. Also a lodge and restaurant. More like an Aspen resort than a state park. No cellular service. There is no cell service but there is WiFi in the campground. You can text and make calls with the WiFi. You just have to change the setting on your phone for wifi calling. We were there Thanksgiving weekend. I always wanted to see those horses. We woke up one night to a horse rubbing his head on the spare tire at the back of the trailer!

RE: Lower Missouri/Arkansas trip

Echo Bluff SP just North of Eminence, MO, very new SP, near Current River, wild horses walk through campground.Bull Shoals SP, in AR, below the dam, trout fish, if you get a river front site the occasional breese off the river feels like you opened the freezer door. Great when it is hot. Lake Ouachita, in AR, very deep, clean lake near Hot Springs. Lake Dardanelle SP in AR is nice. We used it as base for visiting Petit Jean SP, Mt Nemo SP and Mt. Magazine SP-beautiful lodge but the campground does not have a view. You may be late for making reservations for Labor Day. You will have a great time in So Mo or AR beautiful area! Marcia

RE: Lees Ferry Campground near Page AZ.

This is an interesting area. The Campground is primitive no hook ups be prepared for HOT weather even in the late spring. We were there in late may the Temps were near 100. No A/C. The early morning fishing was awesome, the views incredible but too hot. We left there for the North rim Grand Canyon where that night it was 18* with no hook ups again. Talk about a shock. This is where the long raft trips start for tge Grand Canyon float. It was amazing seeing them unload, inflate and load 2 weeks plus of provisions on those huge rafts and take off. Jesseannie X 2 about seeing the rafts ready to launch. Lee's Ferry is the end point for the Colorado River Discovery raft trip out of Page, AZ. Very interesting flat water raft trip. You go through the horseshoe bend and can see people up there near the edge. They look very tiny. It is a long way down!

RE: Overnight in Alabama

We overnighted at Rickwood Caverns State Park, I-65, Exit 284. It is about the area you are looking. They only have a dozen or so sites. There is a cave to tour and a pool. It was a nice place to stop. They have a gate that closes at a certain time so you need a code.
