RE: Yellowstone food

We have not been in May but have spent two weeks in September and a week in October. We got in our reservations as soon as possible and were willing to eat at 5 PM or 9 PM. If you cannot take whatever odd hour they offer you might be out of luck. Different years, not three weeks in one year. They also had stores that sold sandwiches. And be willing to share a table.

RE: Day 4

How long have you been married that it has taken you so long to learn that your wife is always right?

RE: refueling

We keep a copy of The Next Exit so I can let my husband know when we are getting to truck stops. I write notes in it so we remember which ones that are good and which ones we would rather not stop at again. If we are camping and run into town for something I do the same thing. Some gas stations are fine to stop and some are not. And of course, some go out of business or get a major remodeling after the Next Exit comes out.

RE: Mulling over full-time RVing, with 2 cats

We have bunks. On one of the bottom bunks we had the litter box, a tray with food and water dishes on it and a Rubbermaid box laying on it's side with a afgan in it. We had only one cat but it should work for two cats as long as they get along. The litter box sat in a low cardboard box so anything they raked after going stayed in the box, it must have been about eight inches high. Our cat learned to walk on a lease. The sleeping box probably would not work as it would be too crowded. In six years of camping the electricity never went out when we were gone but that would be a problem. Use scoopable litter for multiple cats.

RE: Question 3 - equipment/supplies that are MUST have

Some books to read. If I had nothing it would rain every day.

RE: Slide-Outs @ Walmart

I saw several MHs parked at a nearby Walmart with slide-outs pulled out. Campground owners went to a board meeting of the township and asked that an end be put to it. It was on the grounds that if they could afford a MH they could afford a campsite.

RE: Dislike of 'Reservation Only' camping

Do you have to go in the summer? We have gone the end of September and first half of October and have not needed reservation. We also can arrive on a Thursday when it is easier to get into a park than on a Friday afternoon.

RE: Drinking Water

I use the empty bottles we save and refill them with park water. They are put in the refrigerator so we have cold water to drink.

RE: Question for Veterans

I found one at a National Park store that my husband's doctor thinks is great. I bought it for myself but I do not need one and he does.

RE: How long do they last?

Our Keystone Outback 03 is used 60-100 nights a year and appears to be in fine shape. Hopefully we will get another ten years out of it. We did have to replace the faucet and the door latch does not look like it has long to go. My husband has no handyman skills and has had to learn from the information I have run off from here.

RE: Purchasing First Trailer

RE: Pill Bottles

I fill mine with water!!!!! If course I do not. I assume I meant I soak them in water to get the label off. Can that be blamed on the fact that I am approaching 80?

RE: Pill Bottles

I fill mine with water and than fill them up with herbs and spices to take camping. When I travel I fill one up with some needles, pins, snaps and buttons to take with me in case of emergency. One small pill bottle holds a lot. Tacks fill another. If I had more time today I am sure I could find lots of other things I use them for. And some go into the recycle basket. Our village combines with a nearby village to have a recycling site. Paint that matches the inside of the TT fills another.

RE: Pets and Florida Heat

Not a solution to your problem but put out extra water for you pets in case the power does go out. Our cat would drink more when it was hot.

RE: RV Fire Exit (aka exiting Dukes of Hazzard style)

I threw a pillow over the bottom of the opening and let myself down feet first. Hanging down I did not have far to drop.

RE: Snakes

We go to SW Utah for three months every winter. We hike about four to five days a week. We know that there are snakes out there but have never seen one. Probably less chance of running into one in the winter than if you are hiking in the summer.

RE: Where can we camp to hear wolves?

The UP of Michigan and Ontario are both places we have heard wolves but it was a few years ago.
