RE: Rancho 9000 expected life?

My Rancho's are 9 years old with 214,000 miles on 'em. So far, so good. I wouldn't know where to begin to look for the box-top end. I suppose I've gotten my money's worth out of them.

RE: Camper or 5th wheel ?

Well... I have a TC because it's been conducive to my need for constant business travel. But, the older I get, the longer I desire to sit for a spell with water/electric hookups. The longer I sit in one place, the more conscious I am of the lack of space in a TC. I spect I'll transition to a trailer or 5er at retirement in 9 months. Then I'll spend at least 2 weeks at each government venue and up to a couple of months in private parks. While I like the mobile lifestyle, there will be no need to hurry. If momma prefers the AF, that's the way I'd go.

RE: dually 2 wheel drive in snow with TC on

Business travel has taken me to NY, PA, OH, and WV, sometimes during the winter. While they keep the Interstates pretty well plowed, I have spent a few nights in rest areas, Cracker Barrel, or Wallyworld due to white-outs or ice. I carry a Lance 1121 on a 2WD dually and there is a big difference in traction with the camper on-board. Still, there's too much "pucker factor" in snow driving for this Florida boy. I've decided there is more business than I can say grace over in the S.E. during the winter time.

RE: boondocking opportunities

Boondocking around Daytona Bch. is about the same as it is in Raleigh. Two SPs relatively close are Tomoka SP, north of Ormond Bch and further north in Flagler Bch. at Gamble Rogers.

RE: Finally seeing some nights predicted down in the 60's . . .

It was nice shutting off the a/c, opening the windows and turning on the fantastic fan last night. Now, if the humidity would just go down a little more...:)

RE: Truck camper for Toyota Tundra

Just between me, you and a fence post... unless you have a specific reason to downsize, I'd keep towing that 25' TT with the Tundra. An 11 1/2' TC w/slide and dry bath on a F-350 dually can get pretty small with time. Easy to maneuver and park in most places, but still on the small side for livability and comfort. You live out of a TC, not in it.

RE: Heading south for the first time

I've enjoyed McIntosh Lake RV Park in Townsend, Ga. Nice, reasonably priced, park about a mile and 1/2 off I-95. Easy drive to Savannah and Brunswick. In N. Florida, I like Half Shell Resort just south of Palatka on the St. Johns River. A quiet adult (55 & up) park, it's reminiscent of "Old Florida and within an easy drive to St. Augustine and Ocala National Forest. Heading west to the panhandle, work your way west of Gainesville and take US Hwy 27 to Perry, Fl., then Hwy 98 over to "Florida's Forgotten Coast". Stop off in Sopchoppy, FL at the city park, Myron B. Hodge on the Sopchoppy River. They have about 16 FHU sites in there and you're close to one of the largest natural springs in the world... Edward Ball Wakulla Springs SP. More vestiges of "Old Florida". Traffic is light and the pace is slow. A small working water front supplies the restaurants and locals with fresh seafood year round. Roadside stands have fresh veggies and fruits in season. Pick up some Tupelo honey... it's the only honey that doesn't granulate. You can take 98 along the coast towards Pensacola.

RE: campgrounds around St Augustine, Fl

A side note... be sure to stop at O'Steens in the 200 Blk of Anastasia Blvd. for fried shrimp. Great food... reasonable price. It's been a landmark for locals over the past 60 years. Often, there's quite a wait to get seating inside. A "to-go" order takes about 10 minutes and Anastasia SP is close by.

RE: So you want to open a truck manufacturing business?

No matter how you cut it, when you work for the other fella, he buys you at wholesale and sells you at retail and he keeps the spread.

RE: The park is ours

Good thing you clarified Salt Springs... That's about 35 miles from Ocala on the east side of the forest.

RE: Calhoun Falls South Carolina

Nice pics. I've visited Calhoun Falls SP a couple of times. IIRC, they have a nice beach area which was a delight a few summers ago when the temps were reaching 102°. I, too, saw deer in the campground. Saddlers Creek and Lake Hartwell SPs are just as nice. However with the "geezer" pass, those 16 or 17 C.O.E. parks from Thomson, GA. up to Pendleton, SC. are simply too hard to beat. :B

RE: Possible mod to bunk STEP, not ladder.

I can tell you one thing. It doesn't get any easier with age. I've missed a step twice in the past 9 years in my non-basement model and picked myself up off the floor. And, God help you if a health issue requires diuretics. It's an interesting and somewhat humorous challenge having to get your wits about you posthaste. A TC, with it's versatility and mobility, works best for me in business travel. When the golden years start in 10 months, I'll gladly look for more room with the bed & bath on the same level. I'm getting a little too old to be climbing up to the bed and dining table and back down... YMMV.

RE: Laundry sheets and bugs on the front cap.

It's the only way I've gotten through the biannual lovebug seasons all these years in Florida.

RE: Stink Bugs

I just finished getting the last of the lovebugs off the truck. It has been a battle for the past month. They get so thick, you can hardly see out the windshield. And you don't dare leave them to bake in the sun. They are so acidic that pitted paint and chrome awaits if you do. I hardly move the camper during the biannual lovebug seasons. Too much work just keeping the dually maintained.

HA! Don't I know it! Used to live on Lake Wylie in S.C.. Would come home after a week on the road, get up at 5 a.m. on Saturday morning, grab my rod, a folding chair, transistor radio w/headphones and head for the dock. I'd drift in and out of sleep during those quiet cool mornings as the eagles fished the lake. Relaxation was the ONLY reason for the adventure. Work was over. Momma and the kids wouldn't get up at 5. Nor would they make demands on me when I had a rod in my hands. It was like the "holy grail"... LOL. One morning in the early spring, I had drifted off while tuned into an easy listening music channel, when a big burly game warden tapped me on the shoulder. As I pulled the ear plugs, I heard him ask for my fishing license. While fumbling from a dead sleep to my wallet, he asked if I was getting any bites. "No Sir", I said. "What are you using for bait?", he asked. "Nothing" was the reply. I reeled in the line which sported a small lead weight and a cork, sans the hook. After viewing my license and not finding any bait, hooks or lures in my possession, it got right funny to him. For the rest of the spring, summer and fall, he'd smile and wave as he passed the dock. He understood!

RE: Avg question

Perhaps you downloaded and installed the full version for trial as opposed to the "Free" version which doesn't offer all the features of the full one. I've used the free version for years w/o a problem or paying a cent.

RE: Florida RV Park with NO alligators

Good luck with that. Gators can turn up in the strangest places all over Florida. Same with snakes. Watch where you put your hands and feet. Yesterday, I brought groceries home to the RV. I was met by a 5 foot rat snake hanging on the ladder. Of course there's a couple of gators in the retention ponds at the entrance to the park.

RE: Gas Prices - NC vs SC (SC is much cheaper!)

Along the I-77 corridor, fuel prices have long been cheaper in S.C. and VA. Flying J was well positioned in Wytheville, Va and just south of Rock Hill, SC.
