RE: What are you reading?

A Walk in the Woods, Bill Bryson. It is about him and an old buddy's adventure walking the Appalachion Trail. He is a humor travel writer. Funny and a lot of history about the area along the trail. Marcia

RE: Bucket list?

We don't have a list yet. We have a lot of places on our minds for when we are retired and can take as long as we desire. I get ideas from this site and Trip Advisor and just googling areas. It is time consuming but it is my therapy. I have discovered thing to do and places to see that we may have been disapointed if we learned of them after the trip. Such as riding ATV's along the Oregon Dunes; the slot canyon tour near Page, AZ; hiking trails at Turkey Run SP in Indiana; Slide Rock SP in the Oak Creek canyon in AZ; Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park near Crescent City, CA; Colorado River Discovery raft trip at Page, AZ; Hot Springs Lodge and Pool in Glenwood Springs, CO; Float trip on the Current and Jacks Fork Rivers in Southern Missouri; camping by the White River under the Dam at Bull Shoals Lake in AR; Virginia Creeper bike/hike trail at Damascus, VA. So if you find yourself in these areas these places were worth the stop. I would visit them again. Safe travels, Marcia

RE: Trip Planning: The Perfect Family Trip 2016!

I love your map! Trip planning is my therapy while not camping. I just have some info for our area. In case you need to stop in IL or MO. Benton, IL - Rend Lake "Wayne Fitzgerrell SP" is close to the Interstate. Electric. Fill your tank on arrival. If you need to go further north, Carlyle, IL - Carlyle Lake, take Route 127 North). "Dam West" is a corp. park, nicely groomed, some FHU or electric, you should be able to get a site M-W w/o a reservation. We always stay at "Eldon Hazlet SP" up the road(our weekend retreat), 300+ sites, electric, pool, very wooded, beautiful lake. Best sites to reserve are 7, 8 and 9 on the water. You only need a reservation on a holiday weekend. Herod, IL "Garden of the Gods Rec. Area" is a little out of the way but such a cool place! There are 12 sites in the pines, no electric, hand pump water, no showers, $10/night deposit in drop box. No reservations. It may get full on weekends. Hannibal, MO, "all about Mark Twain", "Mark Twain Lake SP" is nice, electric, we were there in 1998 and there were a lot of Whipporwills singing at night. Very cool! St. Louis area: St. Charles, MO, "Sundermeier RV Park" right in town, pricey $63/night (location, location)this is a Lewis & Clark historic town. Edmund Babler SP near Chesterfield, MO is just to the south of St. Charles. $21/night, electric. wooded. Nice SP. And since you are not a local, for your safety, drive I-70 through St. Louis during the day and don't stop in between St. Charles and Fairview Heights, IL. Honestly, I-70 goes through the worst parts of the whole St. Louis Metro (North St. Louis and East St. Louis). You get to go over the new Stan Musial/Veterans Memorial Bridge! Have a wonderful and safe trip! Marcia

RE: Mama Gertie's Upper Level Photos

We stayed a couple of nights in site 16 this summer. It is in the lower section in the middle. The sites on the sides had more shade. The sites are tiered going up the hill. There is a small picnic table and nice landscaping along the rock retaining wall for the sites in the middle section. There are also tent sites and cabins in the woods and the sites at the top with decks. There is a fenced in pet area too. This park is kept very neat and clean. The guy was raking the rock and cleaning the fire pit as soon as a site was vacated. I learned of this RV park on this web site. Great park!

RE: Inflatable Hideabed Mattress

Sometimes our kids will deflate it half way and set it on top of our bed for the day. We don't fold our mattress in the couch.

RE: Where to camp, reservations etc

Hickory Creek campground at Lewisville Lake TX is nice. The gate closes at 10 p.m.(?) Check recreation.gov. We stayed there while visiting friends. Nice big sites. Only con is the gate. You can get out but not back in after 10.

RE: campground brimingham alabama montgomery alabama

We stayed at Rickwood Caverns for one night. They have a gate that closes in the evening. Call ahead if you plan on getting there after dark. You may need to get the code.

RE: Stops along the way from Fla to Michigan

We stayed one night at the KY Horse Park campground in June. Great campground for kids. There is a pool, tennis court, etc. There are things to do and see at the Park.I wish we would have known about this park when the kids were young. Most people had their golf carts with them. I guess to go back and forth from the KY Park. They were everywhere! They are quiet and you don't realize they are right behind you when you are out walking.

RE: Big Pine Key Fishing Lodge

We walked around the place when we were in the keys. It is a real nice place. The bath house was nice. Nice people, employees and people camping.I don't think dogs are allowed because of the key deer that roam around.

RE: Hidden Treasure in NC mountains

We stayed at Mama Gertie's Hideaway Campground in June. It was a very nice place. Very well maintained. Like martinto said there are three levels of campsites (terraced) going up the hill. It is a steep climb to the top but the view is amazing! It is near Asheville and the BRP.

RE: Turkey Run SP in Indiana

Just one of the many activities we did during a visit. http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg301/1stta/grilled%20pizza/ead581b7-a193-4721-bd8e-5d4952c146b8_zpsqetde6x7.jpg

RE: Turkey Run SP in Indiana

We had a great weekend. The water was good for floating but we didn't float. I did hike the two rugged trails with our two adult kids. Beautiful hike. The weather was nice. It was a lazy weekend. Nice and relaxing.

RE: Grilled pizza

We just used the fire pit, our stainless grill grate and the lid to our little Smokey Joe Weber. We grilled one side, took it off and flipped it over on a platter and added toppings to the grilled side. We dusted the pizza paddle with flour (or corn meal) and set the pizza on it to slide on to the grill. We covered it with the lid to heat the top. Oh and we used genuine wood. Ron3rd that Naan bread looks good. I would like to try it sometime. DogFolks, we eat good when we camp! We hope to make it to Maine and get some fresh lobster. SuperDave you need to grill both sides so the dough cooks unless you use something like that Naan bread. BigKatuna that pizza oven looks like it would work good. We carry enough gadgets already.

Grilled pizza

Did pizza on the grill while camping for the first time this last weekend. Everyone though it turned out great. Everyone got in on the putting pizzas together. I rolled out the dough and got it on the grill for the first side and let everyone take over from there.

RE: Suggestions for camping near St Louis

Sundermeier RV park in St. Charles. That is a nice town to visit. Main st. Shops, casino, history, bars, Bass Pro. If the Grafton, IL ferry is running it is a shorter drive to Pere Marquette SP in Il and beautiful river/bluff drive to Alton, IL.

Turkey Run SP in Indiana

Our group of 6 & the dog are headed there next month. We have our own tubes and two vehicles. We would like to do a short float (3+ mi.)through the park. Can we use the same put in and take out as the canoe company? Any suggestions? We are hoping for a dry spell.

RE: Interesting places along the route (& a question)

I learned about the Virginia Creeper bike trail in VA on this site. We visited in June. We really enjoyed it and will return someday. I also learned about Turkey Run SP in IN. We are heading there next month. We head to Carlyle Lake in IL quite often. Beautiful Lake. If you are traveling through IL it is about 30 minutes from I-64 or I-70
