RE: Canned ham?

I was given one and I thought ugh. The person who handed it on to me thought the same thing. It was fine and handy.

RE: Where to put bikes?

I had an old comforter. I sewed it into a wallet shape and it covers the bike. The bike leans against a bed with a Rubbermaid container on the other side to hold it in place. My husband can get it up the steps with no problem. I use some nasty words when I have to do it. I watched a bike fall off the back of an RV and do not want to put ours there.

RE: Your trailer usage anually

We usually spend 80-100 days camping and family uses it as a guest room 10-20 days more. No weekends but it does count camping for several days that include the weekend. The longest we go is when we stay put at a national park for 26-28 days. And that does not include tent camping or backpacking.

RE: Wanting to go to Grand Canyon in October

We stayed at the north rim of the Grand Canyon the first week in October and had no problems with the temperature. We stayed at the park campground and arrived early so found a campsite with but we arrived fairly early. Ten years ago so might be crowded now. They were closing a few days after we left.

RE: Would like to find used cast iron implements. Where?

I bought a cast iron frying pan for 29 cents and got several more from my grandmother and great grandmother. Now I have too many but cannot get rid of them. I cannot remember why the frying pan was such an odd amount.

RE: Things I'm starting to notice / hate about camping In a TT

You are not near campers, you are staying in RV parks.And not high class RV parks. We drove thru some and knew they were not for us.

RE: Lost Vegas to st. George

I did not pay enough attention but if you go thru the gorge there is a campground 3/4 of the way thru, if you take the Littlefield exit just before the gorge there are places where I have seen people boondocking. Between Valley of Fire and Mesquite I have seen several places where people are boondocking. And because I have not paid enough attention I am not sure which of the exits you take for any of them. We spend three months in the area every winter.

RE: Why assume I like your music

We go to a state park that has quiet hours but the rest of the time is not loud hours. And they enforce both.

RE: outdoor kitchens

Our Outback is older so does not have the complete kitchen but I love the stove. I do not mind losing the indoor kitchen space for the outside stove but would not want to give up more space when it is so easy to fill a dishpan with water or use an ice chest to keep drinks cold. Remember, different strokes for different folks.

RE: Which UTAH State & National Parks Should Not Be Missed

If you have time Dead Horse is good but there are so many places that are better. After the second trip thru the parks plus the National Monuments we decided that we did not have enough time and now spend our winters near Saint George. We add another week every year we go and will take three and a half months next year.

RE: Arches NP - Bad idea in Summer

We have gone in July, September and October. Do not go in July unless that is the only time you can go and you have reservations. You need them in September also but you might be able to get in.

RE: Electric Blanket or Heated Matress Pad

We had both and like the blanket more than we liked the pad.

RE: Bunks vs Bunk House

Anytime that you know you are going to spend all of your time outside, it rains every day of your vacation even tho the forecast has been for sunshine for the entire time. Be prepared.

RE: Looking for a trailer manual for a friend

I would guess that the original owner threw the manual away as it was a useless piece of nothingness. Tell him to come here and start making his own.

RE: Utah Vacation

Bryce Canyon is incredible. Zion is more famous but Bryce magnificent. Get information on things in each area you are going to. Some things that do not make the National Parks are great. If you have children 4 and up Goblin Valley will be a great stop for one day.

RE: Are You a Dog Lover or Dog Parent

Dog parent. My husband would tell our dog to go ask Mom and she would come straight to me. Our cat thought he was a dog and acted the same way.

RE: Levi Jackson & All Other Kentucky SPs; Never Again!

We stayed in one Kentucky SP and it had everything you could want in a state park except decent camp sites.We visited several others and found them the same. We changed to the Daniel Boone NF campgrounds and visited the state parks during the day. Found every state has the small campsites in older parks. We just check them all out more carefully. With a complaint we usually call.

RE: Anyone using "Sniff and Stop" as a mouse preventative?
