RE: 1800 miles in 3 days with 3 kids in a truck. Crazy or not

Will I regret not taking my family to Yellowstone/Tetons/Black Hills because I didn't want to drive for 3 days to get there? Our two kids are grown. We tent camped. There are a lot of places that we wish we could have gone but it just wasn't possible with 9 days off. No regrets taking them to all of the cool places we traveled. We hope they appreciate getting to travel. They are spoiled now that we have a TT. We plan a 4 day trip each year. Only you know how you and your family will handle that much time in the truck. It may not be that bad if you break it up. We try to not make too many stops and we average 55 miles/hr. When I plan a trip I figure drive time by the 55 mph rule. Marcia

RE: Suggestions for an electric cooking device for a small space

We like our electric skillet. We also have a single electric burner for heating pots. We like to cook outside.

RE: Key West

Big Pine Fishing Lodge & campground at MM 31. No dogs allowed because the tiny Key Deer roam the grounds.

RE: Summer 2017 - Trip Suggestions

If a bike trail interests you then check out the Virginia Creeper Trail. It is in Damascus, VA (SW corner of VA) about 10 miles East of I-81. It is a rail trail but they haul you and your bike or a rental up to the top and you pretty much coast down. It is very gradual, through the woods (ferns, etc.) and along the stream. There are many bridges.(Beautiful) We stayed at the Laurel Creek Campground near the bike shops. It is a small quaint town that caters to the Appalachian Trail hikers and the Virginia Trail users.

RE: Summer 2017 - Trip Suggestions

With two weeks you could explore West Arkansas and southern Missouri. So much to see. There is a new State Park in MO called Echo Bluff just north of Eminence. The Current River and Jacks Fork River are National Scenic river ways. Nice way to cool off. The rivers are cold and clear as there are many large springs. They are both Class 1, gentle current. Rt. 7 in Arkansas is very scenic. Lake Ouachita, Hot Springs, Mt. Magazine, Bull Shoals SP below the dam at Bull Shoals Lake, Buffalo National River (spring is best for floating, no current in July, not cold water), Petit Jean SP, Crater of Diamonds SP (you keep what you find!). If you are interested in any of these places you can find many posts on this forum. Marcia

RE: Mark Twain State Park

Did you hear any Whippoorwills? The last time we were there was in the late 90's. There were many back then. I was wondering if they are still there. That is a nice campground. I like their shower house set up. The showers are separate from the restrooms and private rooms. Marcia

RE: mammoth caves KY to Branson

Rt 60 is a 4 lane divided hwy. from Poplar Bluff, MO to Springfield, MO. We were on a short stretch of it south of Eminence. I remember it being a nice road. You can view it on maps.google.com if you zoom in and drag the man to the road. Marcia

RE: Red River NM to Salida CO

We just got back from Twin Lakes / Leadville, CO which is just to the North of Salida. If you go sightseeing up that way the Leadville Railroad allows dogs. It is a beautiful trip up 1,000' in to the mountains for $37.

RE: Asheville in October?

x3 Mama Gerties. We drove through a couple NP campgrounds up on the Blue Ridge Parkway and we could not have fit in most sites. Our TT is about 32' overall. We stayed at Roan Mountain SP in TN on our way to Damascus, VA to bike on the Virginia Creeper Trail. That is a very nice State Park!

RE: Floriday Keys State Parks dog question

Well we are fortunate that we can play the 11 month game and get what we get. Then we can put in for that vacation time. I am hoping that will be in our favor.

RE: Floriday Keys State Parks dog question

Thanks Camsmom. We may check out St. Joseph Peninsula sometime. We are hoping to get reservations for state parks in the Keys in 2018. That is a ways off since you have to reserve 11 mo ahead.

RE: Floriday Keys State Parks dog question

Thank you for all of the replies. I have read a lot of posts about how to be ready to reserve. Sher9570 I will check out the County rules. Thanks! Wolfe That is what I was trying to figure out. So it sounds like there are areas in the State Parks that are not considered public beach. That is good to know. Please share your experiences with your dog in the Keys. Good or Bad. Anything I need to be prepared for as far as land and sea critters?

Floriday Keys State Parks dog question

We are thinking about going in Feb. 2018. We have not camped down there with a dog. I have been doing a lot of searches on this forum and on the web. Just want your input. I know dogs are not allowed on the beaches. Are there other coast areas that are not considered "the beach" at the State Parks? I recall at Bahia Honda there is a beach on the bay side and another long beach on the ocean side. Surely there is some place around the island that you can go with your dog. I found that these places are dog friendly. Coco Plum Beach and Sombrero Beach in Marathon, Veterans Memorial park on Little Duck Key, Big Pine Key dog park (really? with Key deer on the island), Dolphin Research center. Thanks for reading. Any comments appreciated. Marcia

RE: Echo Bluff MO's newest State park

Thanks for the nice report. Fellow readers, If you haven't floated the Current don't let the name scare you. I think it is rated Class I or II. There is enough current that you only need to steer your kayak. There are usually a few hazards to challenge you along the way. I'm sure there is more flow in the spring and after rain. Concord 05, yes we avoid Saturday too. We would rather float and be able to enjoy the wild life. One year we saw a river otter, king fishers and some mink. Marcia

RE: Trip Report: The Perfect Family Trip, Northwest 2016

I enjoy your trip reports and pictures. Yes, some of us just have the adventure spirit and love to see the country. Others don't care and they also don't care to hear about trips. You are in good company here!

RE: Shawnee National Forest campground advice?

Southern Illinois? The campground at Garden of the Gods is quiet, no hookups, 12 sites. We were there a few years ago and they had a hand pump for water. There is a lot to see in southern Illinois.

RE: Winchester Bay RV Resort, Oregon

Plan to enjoy or avoid Dune Fest at Reedsport /Winchester Bay area July 27-31, 2016. They have it every year. We chose to avoid it on our trip 13 years ago. When we rode the dunes there were very few people out there. It was very cool riding along the shore. Marcia

RE: Sharing my trip to Mackinac Island - Must visit, Period!

Enjoyed the video.Thank you for sharing. That is on my travel list. Did you see any visitors with dogs? They are allowed and can ride in the carriages. I need to get Gracie trained to ignore horses before we make that trip. Marcia
