RE: Fall Camping

We are leaving on Saturday for three to four weeks of camping. I still have to search for a pair of long underwear, just in case.

RE: Getting sick of campgrounds

We found at our state park that the rangers drive around often during the day and let people know that quiet hours are not just at night. People cannot make too much noise during the day either. Yes at some weekends we have to make reservations six months in advance but I mark our calendars ahead of time when we have to plan ahead. We can get in during the week but we are old enough so we do not have school children. We often meet people who have come from states just south of us. And the park is talking about adding sites.

RE: How far do you travel per day?

We travel about one hour after I suggest to my husband that it is time to stop. That is when we do not have a planned destination.

RE: Travel Trailer dilemma

You might be happier with a MH but do not count on it being easier to set up in the older National Parks. We came into one with our tent and had ours set up plus the air mattress inflated while a Motor Home on steroids was still trying to fit itself into a small lot that was all that was available. I learned a lot of Dutch and French swear words used by the people in line behind them trying to get by. At least I guess they were swear works.

RE: Etiquette in Camping

I have thought of making a sign that says We pay for this site. Rental fee for walking across is $20. Pay in advance. Sadly, thinking about is is as far as I have gotten. 4

RE: What Does Autumn Mean to You in the Kitchen?

We camp in northern Michigan for most of October and picking apples from old apple trees in Sleeping Bear Dunes NL us our main change. Everything that I can think of that can be made with apples is on the menu. I get tired of apples before my husband does so have to try some odd combinations.

RE: Isn't this just a SUPER campsite???

Years ago my husband and I were walking around the campground and we heard a man on the phone say that he had the best campsite in the park. It looked a lot like the one in your picture. Different strokes for different folks.

RE: Microwave Oatmeal

Duh!!!! Why didn't I think to ask here or even look on the box?? I can eat the instant but think the regular is so much better. Thank you. And I put coffee creamer in the instant. I think it makes it taste better.

RE: Temps in the Nawth in October

We spend October in northern LP if Michigan. It is always warm enough for us but what we think is warm enough may not be warm enough for you further south. I am looking for my long underwear. And we have an electric blanket on our bed which makes a big difference.

RE: Soap Scum on shower doors

Vinegar, either white or apple works. I spray it on straight. An old towel tight against the bottom should keep it from running on the floor.

RE: IRS is getting impatient

We got two. At the second one I pushed the number to talk to a real person and than after a wait, did get a real person!!!. I told them I did not get any more calls and have not. I was amazed. I considered telling them I would have my son, an attorney contact them but did not think they would believe me. And he is.

RE: Large family problem (we are 8)

My mother's family went camping several times a year with a family of 11 but they used tents. We did the same with four children. Our Outback sleeps ten but it would not live ten. We put up a tent to sleep children who are old enough. We can hang cheap, lightweight tarps from the awning to make an extra room.

RE: Excited for Fall

We make our main trip in the fall and look forward to it all year. Remember one summer where in August, trip ended with weather over 100 in Michigan. Not something we would ever do on purpose. Now we never go camping in the summer without fans to have blowing on us outdoors.

RE: Yellowstone in October?

We were in Yellowstone the first week in October and woke up in the morning to sleet. That may have not been normal but I would do a search on what is. It was our last day there so it did not matter.

RE: Tent Stake Hack

I use the wind flowers that Dollar Tree sells in the spring. I have to buy more than I need in the spring because they may not last all season. Other cheap stores sell them also.

RE: One Pot Meals (?)

There is a cookbook, Microwaving for One and Two, I think. Get something like that. And also standard cookbooks for one and two people but I find it better to make a meal for four and have leftovers the next noon or night.

RE: Camping with a soft top jeep in bear country

We tent camped for years in bear county. We always have very good bear spray, never had to use it. And good bear spray is expensive. In fact we lived in bear country when I was a child and we children often played in the same woods that my uncle went bear hunting in.

RE: Where's everyone camping for the total eclipse of the Sun?

Our back yard, especially now that the big trees have been cut down. Might walk over to the ponds behind the house.

RE: To drain or not to drain? Another ice chest question.

I make ice in gallon jugs and it does not matter that they begin to defrost. Nothing is using the ice chest as a swimming pool. I read but have not ran a test that things stay cooler than if the water is drained.
