RE: Rustic Camping Southwest of Denver

I have not camped near Denver but in other western states we have camped on BLM land. Check to learn if they have anything in the area.

RE: What do you do if you find money...?

Forty-some years ago my son, aged ten' found a fifty dollar bill. We sent him to the village hall to ask if anyone had lost it. Then we sent him to the village paper to see if anyone had contacted them. . No at both places but before he could spend it he had to wait several weeks in case someone reported having lost it.. At the end of the three weeks he bought a new bike. We wanted him to learn a lesson.

RE: Memories of your very first trailer camping trip

Mine was in 1946 to 1948 in the homemade tent trailer that my father traded for a row boat. We went fishing and camped on the shores of a sandy lake. What I remember the most tho is when my parents were still sleeping and my younger brother got into my father's peppermint schnapps. I woke my parents up by telling them that my brother was drunk and acting mean. He slept all afternoon. And I think he was six years old so it must have been 1947.

RE: New to RVing, going to be full time travel nursing.

Every year there is someone asking the same question but they do not come back and say how it is working out. I do not know if you would come up with something if you did a search here on it or not. You might try under full timers.

RE: Now I'm Really Confused

We need a truck with a cap on, not one that we have to take off and put on eight times times a season. We need lots of storage which means for us bunk beds that can have things piled on them. We do not want to make the table and sofa into beds and take them down in the morning. We do not need room for a large TV but we do need two TVs so we do not have to watch the same thing. I do know how to use the microwave to bake in so a oven is not necessary. I do not need a dishwasher. I have one, it is called a husband. For us that means a TT with bunk beds. Make you own list of must haves and don't needs.

RE: Navajo Nation Attractions

Do you mean three days at each area or three days for the whole thing??

RE: Layout of campgrounds

The state park we go to has strict rules about noise and enforces them. You can get a large site with lots of trees or the sardine can sites. And we have seen state parks with the sardine can sites. Every time you are near a park, drive thru and make a list of the sites you would be willing to take.

RE: Rain in forecast not sure what to do

We were gone ten days over the forth.. Rain forecast several times. Perhaps it rained a tenth of an inch one night. Glad we did not change our minds. And we have gone when it has rained day after day but always found something to do.

RE: Theodore Roosevelt National Park

We loved TRNP. Wild horses came down to the river at the end of our lot and drank. Buffalo wandered into the campground. Do not expect to get much in the way of groceries near by unless things have changed.

RE: Yellowstone, Tetons, places to see grizzly, moose, wolves

We go in the fall and see lots of wild animals and fewer people. Elk walked across our campsite, wolves strolled down the side of the road. Bears were about a quarter mile down the trail from us and buffalo were all over. The moose were further away but close enough for good pictures. Saw many more animals in the Norris area than anywhere else in the park. We spent two weeks the last time we were there so had more opportunities to see animals.

RE: Rafting the Colorado river

We have noticed that in August the water can be low.

RE: microwave/convection oven combo

I own two microwave-convection cookbooks. Both came from garage sales but I have seen them at bookstores. Lots of recipes and information about what works in either one. I plan on using them if I can still find them when either of my microwaves dies. I also have several microwave only cookbooks and can bake bread, make cakes or roast a chicken in the microwave. Anyway, check out a bookstore or Amazon. Or hit garage sales.

RE: Young family thinking about a travel trailer...

We had to give up camping with children in summer sports. We found when the children were gone and we returned to camping we had to give up the garden. We tried a small garden this year and husband came home to water and found that all of the broccoli had been eaten. You have to decide which way you want to go.

RE: What's more important? Kids space or living area?

We had a college football player in one of our bunks. He fit. With a bunkroom our grandchildren can watch TV and we can watch something else or turn it off. Wonderful. I do a lot of cooking and baking. I do not need an island but I need something that I can lay over the sink so I have more counter space. I have no trouble doing without an island, I would have trouble getting children out of bed each morning so the dinette could go from bed to table.

RE: Amish in Union Grove, NC

We stopped at an Amish farm in Michigan to buy cookies for my husband this morning. A real Amish store to stop at, for the local Amish, not the tourists

RE: My LG A/C experience (not good)

Forget your air conditioning and set up several vans inside. If you have enough of them you will be fine.

RE: Enormous Bugs and Where to Avoid Them

I did not know they bit. Thank you. Not that we have many in southern Michigan.

RE: Shelving for our TT.

We have hanging pockets over the head of each bunk that holds things but it seems to me if you are putting in shelves they would work better at the foot end. When we have smaller grandchildren we put a Rubbermaid container at the foot. It serves as both storage and a desk while they are awake. Do not know if either of my idea would help you but suggest if you are putting in a shelf you look at the area at the foot and not at the head end. Our head faces the bunk room TV but that does not mean others have to.

RE: Zion Np/ Moab / Grand Canyon North Rim

If you do the Narrows at Zion you should have hiking sticks or broom handles. There are often sticks left laying at the start. Old sturdy shoes to wear in the water, something that can get wet. Go to the websites of all of the parks and monuments. They will have the length and if they are easy or hard.

RE: Sofa bed

Years ago someone here suggested that you slice a swimming noodle down the center and lay it in the fold of the sofa bed. It sounded like a good idea. I have never tried it because we have a bed plus four bunks but it might make sleeping on the sofa better. I think they than laid a mattress topper over it.
