RE: Route 66

There are books on Rt. 66, your library may have some that you can look at so you have an idea which one you might like to buy. Some of the states 66 goes thru have nice pamplets you can send for or print. Each time we go west we check out some of the places on 66, some are very depressing and some are great.

RE: What limits your use of your travel trailer / RV?

Freeze a milk carton almost full of water into a block of ice. Put in the refrigerator just before you go to bed and turn it off. It should keep things cool enough during the night if they are alread too cold.

RE: No A/C at night....????

One summer without electricity we bought two small battery driven fans. We each had one. The fan sat near our face and with a cool face we felt fine. We changed our long camping vacations to September after that.

RE: Walking through campsites

I say "Excuse me." in a tone that really says "Why are you walking thru my lot?

RE: Delivering RV's

I knew a couple that used to deliver Dutch Stars. She could not listen to the raido because he had to be listening to the engine. I do not know if that was the company or just him.

RE: OUT West and BACK East

Michigan has Up North which is not the most northern part of the state. The U.P. is. is further north. And instead of southern Michigan it used to be Down Below which it still may be but because I live there I no longer hear Down Below.

RE: Eating at a picnic table

Years ago, Coke made a plastic six Coke carrier for their bottles. I saved two of them and they work just great to hold silver, salt and pepper, covered sugar, etc. I saved two as I thought they would break easily but we are still on the first one. My father made on out of wood. Probably collectibles now but great to use for eating outside.

RE: 3 day weekend: Fri Sat Sun or Sat Sun Mon?

If you have reservations Saturday-Monday. If you do not have reservations, Friday-Sunday and if you can, Thrusday evening to Sunday. We are old, old, old, and never have to camp for just two or three days.

RE: Alzeheimers and Rving

My parents had to stop when my mother could not find her way back to the trailer when she went out. My father would think she was safely sitting near him and while he took a minute to do something she would be gone.

RE: Anyone tried the PaleoBurn/Caveman diet ?

My husband lost thirty pounds on it. Super. He gained them all back when he went off the diet.

RE: What did you forget home on your last trip?

One trip we forgot the top fly to the tent and detergent. We bought a tarp for the tent and borrowed detergent. Lots of people have asked us for matches so it is apparently something easily forgotten. I guess it was not borrowed as borrowing is replacing what you asked for and we did not replace the detergent.

RE: Ever been totally rained out?

We were almost driven out by bears at Waterton Lakes but never by rain. Had snow in the UP of Michigan in August while we were in a tent with small children but we made it thru.

RE: BEWARE OF DUTCHMEN KODIAK

Instead of just going with your problems to the dealer have you contacted the company? Perhaps they would be willing to replace it rather than go thru the bed publicity. Keep coming here with your poblems and giving them lots of coverage. They are more likely to respond. Do not only go to the TT topic but to several others mentioning different problems. Spread the news around. Take the offensive.

RE: Fridge Space what do you do.

Some coolers will keep ice for at least five days during northern summers.I made an insulated cover for over mine. Some of those towns on maps do not have anything that sells groceries, at least they did not when we went thru northern Ontario. I took more canned food than I usually take. A canned chicken, gravy, canned vegetables on biscuits can taste real good when the only meat available for 200 miles are hot dogs or lunce meat.

RE: Is 27' too long?

We have not had any trouble with our 26 foot trailer getting places we can get into. We have camped in state, national and Provincal parks.

RE: Are you happy with your Oregon-built Keystone Trailer?

Our 03 Keystone has been taken to the dealer for repairs once a few years ago. We use it 80-100 nights a year. We camped in the snow during the winter and 112 degrees during the summer. We were warm enough during the winter and cool enough during the summer. We were in the shade which I am sure makes a differnece. Dealer repair was less than $200. This did not show up so I will send again which of course means it will show up twice.

RE: Hello, new here. Just bought a Pop-Up have a few questions.

I have been on a gluten free diet for over 30 years and have gone camping for much of those thiry years. A lot of it in a tent on six week trips thru the west. I have always taken an electric frying pan for when we had eletricity. When I ran out of my homemade bread and was in areas where I could not buy any I made pancakes in it. Two pancakes can make a sandwich. Your PU should have a refrigerator which will hold a weeks worth of pancake bread. I alwlays made my own pancake mix but now you can buy it in any large supermarket. I also bought an oven, the bread made in an oven takes more work than the pancakes but tastes more like bread. It will be easier now as no one heard of Celiac Disease for the first 20+ years that I had to be Gluten Free.

RE: Michigan "UP" advice needed

Tjere are lots of Nf, State forest and state park campgrounds. There are also some RV parks that are like sardine cans. Do you want full hook-ups?
