RE: getting keys made

Our extras were made at a local hardware store.

RE: Litter Boxes in RVs

We put Opie the cat's box in a shallow box that was larger than the litter box. As Opie had his own bunk it did not take up too much room on the floor. The box came from the supermarket where it had arrived holding bags of fruit.

RE: Upper Peninsula of Michigan

We have pictures from 50 years ago in the southern UP. It is snowing in August. Luckily I had thrown in winter jackets for our children. Not much snow but enough to show up in the picture. We have also been there in September with weather nice enough to wear shorts. Go prepared.

RE: How long can you realistically dry camp?

If we really work hard at conserving water and the battery we can go five days. But it means washing well and not taking showers,using the fire to cook over, filling jugs with water when we are near to free water. Not washing dishes inside the TT. Bringing extra batteries for the radio. Extra blankets for the bed if it is cold. Probably a few other things that I would think of if we were camping.

RE: Kids sports

We stopped camping when our children were the age to take part in summer sports. Between baseball, softball and 10,000 K races there was not much time to fit in camping. We returned when they were grown. Now we take grandchildren when they have a few days off during the summer or fall.

RE: Eggs left in refrigrator

Put some of the Kitty Litter for multiple cats in, shut and door and let sit for a few days. Otherwise never let the door closed if the refrigerator is not running. You will probably have to try several of these ideas before somthing works. Good luck.

RE: Laundry

We converted to almost all colored clothes. Never had a problem with liquid detergent spilling but will now that I have mentioned it. We take enough clothes so we can go for two weeks without washing. Anything with wrinkles in we hang outside to blow wrinkles out or put on hangers in the shower. We prefer to use laundromats and get everything done at once. Their large dryers usually mean the clothes come out wrinkle free.

RE: New travel trailer for my daughter..

In theory our old Keystone Outback sleeps ten but it does not live ten. Are some of her children old enough to sleep in a tent while the younger ones sleep inside?

RE: Where would you love to camp?

I want a big camppsite with lots of trees and shrubs surrounding it so you cannot see your neighbors. Having deer and elk walk thru once in a while is great too. Do not need the skunks walking thru tho. But the ones that have walked thru have just walked and not stopped to perfune our site. Had wild horses stop to drink at the river at the end of the lot was nice.

RE: For fans of hardcopy: Where do you get books on the road?

Garage sales, Thrift stores, used book stores, libraries. church rummage sales. Dollar Tree sometimes has good books for a dollar.

RE: Wobbly Dinette Table

Ours has never wobbled due to a wall support but talked to a man who stopped over at a campground who put a piece of wood 1x3 against the wall from the floor up for the table top to rest on. I did not ask how he had attacted the strip of wood to the wall.

RE: Wet Rain Coats...

I put a tension closet rod up high in the shower. The wet clothes hang there to dry.

RE: Recharging batteries: genset vs. chassis alternator

Instead of running the furnace all night get some extra blankets and warmer pajamas.

RE: Where to camp on Michigan rivers ?

Since you live in Michigan your library may have books about camping in Michigan as well as books about hiking and fishing. Check them out.

RE: Solar lights

We bought some at the local hardware store. Use them at home around the doors and take a few up to take with us when we go camping. Put them back when we return home. They work even better in snow than they do in sun.

RE: Kanab, Utah

Contact the local BLM and NFs.

RE: Has anyone had a run in with any WILD animals?

Because we hike we have met them all on trails, Wolves, bear, buffalo, elk cougars, wild cats, caribou, etc. We have the expensive bear spray with us every time but have never had to use it. Our truck was surrounded by a herd of buffalo at Yellowstone who would not let us thru for an anogizing amount of time but finally wandered off. And it is probably time to get new bear spray.

RE: Light over kitchen sink not working

That may be one of the few things your useless booklet of trailer information may help you with.

RE: matress is terrible

Ours was not bad but we added a memory foam topper we no longer needed at home and it is now great.

RE: To Awn or Not To Awn

We have friends who never put out their awning. It would not be for us but he will not. So you can do without if you want to and the price of a new one is high. A tree just landed on our trailer and we have a new roof and awning paid for by the insurance company otherwise we might set up a tarp. We always camp in shaded lots but if you camp in full sun it might be harder doing without an awning.
