RE: Rv Lifestyle Sticky: I

It is simply a running thread of the experiences of Ara and Spirit who are on a sort of a unique rv vennture; tenting with a motorcycle over a period of several years. We just thought this 'alternative' approach may be of interest to the readers.

RE: Anyone with a lathe?

MNRon, I really enjoy taking my lathe with me at times. It is quiet, yet does cause a curiosity of many campers as they walk by and lends to some great conversations. I usually carry a few 'small blanks' I can turn and use as 'give aways' when people stop by, such as wine stoppers, pens/pencils, book marks, etc. I am a bit older than you so I do have to watch at what angle I lift relatively heavy objects.

RE: Anyone with a lathe?

You didn't give your age, OP. I also have carried a lathe at times and really enjoyed it but it was for turning between centers and not a bowl lathe. Mine weighted a max of 75 lbs. I think it depends where you are going to store it. I found it quite a strain on my back to load and unload it from a storage compartment due to the angle I had to bend. I suggest you keep your weight to a minimum. I also spread a small tarp below the table when I was turning to be able to collect the shavings and not leave a mess in the campground.

RE: RV Trip Planning

As far as COE, Core of Engineers, campgrounds, please don't let getting a 5th wheeler, or even a smaller class A discourage you. We have a 40' class A and enjoy many COE parks in many states. Just check on line as to what size the campsites are and you will be fine. :)

RE: RV Trip Planning

It also depends if you are staying over a weekend or during the week; as well as if you are going into an area where rvers tend to go, ie; south for the winter and north in the summer. We do make reservations a few days ahead of time, and few places we have found charge you if you let them know sufficiently in advance you won't be able to make it. We prefer to not have to be concerned if a site is available. It is a matter of individual preference. :)

RE: Fold Up Treadmill for 07 Allegro Bus 42QRP

Like Steeljag posted, lighten up folks, we don't know their situation: There is probably a reason why they need an treadmill, which is why they are asking.......wow!

RE: RV wave

who pass me that never look over; like they are totally oblivious to a passing rig almost 60' long Our rig also is 'almost 60' long' and please don't expect me to look over while passing either. I am focusing on the road, and trust you understand this. :) But we will be glad to socialize when we get to the campground or in a rest area.

RE: Campground = low income housing???

It's time to bring closure to this one. Many suggestions on how to avoid certain campgrounds have been provide; also, apparently this isn't a major problem for most rv'ers as this question very seldom comes up in the forums. Just take time to research the campground you wish to stay in and go from there. The types of campgrounds desired by the OP are definately available and really not difficult to find. Happy camping to all. :)

RE: Log home maintenance

40 tubes of chalking should not have been necessary. In fact, no chalking, due to the use rolls of thin foam sheet, should be necessary for the basic construction. This http://www.honestabe.com/homecenter/featured/38.pdf is our style of log home. When I did re-stain after 18 years I sprayed the entire logs and then used a 4" paintbrush to repaint the perma chink to match the original color of the perma chink. That was much quicker and more efficient than trying to mask the chinking prior to spray staining. And, that is what I will do in the next year or or two when we have to re-stain. Re-staining twice in 30 years is not a bad record at all. :)

RE: Log home maintenance

Bucky2, we live, and have lived in the same log home since 1984. It was manufactured and erected by Honest Abe homes here in Tn. This is not a plug for them although we would definately recommend them. The point is: Do NOT buy a log home from anyone other than a company that specializes in them. There are 'fine points' like settling which are allowed for in the design and erection of the home and unless accounted for, will present problems. There are some traditional builders that feel they can put up a log home; without any experience with them. Avoid them like the plague!!!! Our home, has had NO problem as the logs were properly kiln dried, erected properly, and I applied a Sherwin Williams penetrating oil stain which lasted for 18 years before I had to re-stain. I will be due a second staining in a year or two. We built with the conventional square logs, with chinking. Between each layer of logs is a piece of wood approx. 3 x 5 with styrofoam on each side and then the perma chinking on top of that. The chinking has required no repairs either; with the exception of 3 areas where it was applied a bit too thinly and I took care of myself using the extra bucket of chinking that was left over; it stores for years if done properly. We do have a bug spray service quarterly and that takes care of 99% of the carpenter bees. We did an addition, by the same company about 6 years ago and no one can tell it is an addition. Our insurance, State Farm, is no higher than if we had build with Stick/Brick. Some companys may be different. Our home has required no more maintenance than a conventional home; in fact in some ways even less. Dons2346 must have some inherent problems not typically associated with quality log homes. Every one thinks they know how to build a log home and it just isn't true. Stick with a reputable builder and you should be very pleased. Feel free to pm me if you have other questions. Kus
