RE: Camping? When did you start.

In 1947 we went camping in a home made tent trailer. What I remember most is my six or seven year old brother getting drunk on my father's peppermint schnapps.Parents were sleeping and we got up early. Not sure of the spelling there.

RE: decals

Ours have started to peel also but instead of replacing them I have wondered about painting on new swirls. Our decals lasted longer than yours but I would not want them peeling off in a year or two.

RE: Office area?

Under one of our bunks is a storage area. The top could be taken off and a desk top made to fit in the area. We have a bunkroom with four bunks and three closets. Unless we have visiting grandchildren the bunks are used for storage. The whole room could be made into an office.

RE: Californianos Hang Onto Yer Britches...!

Someone mentioned hoping the rain goes into the lakes. It has been and more has gone into fields and yards making ponds that look like lakes. Swamps are now lakes. We do not need any more. Here in lower Michigan some roads we often take are closed because of being water covered.

RE: Will RidEx decompose flushables?

Put one in a jar of water and let it sit. See how long it takes. Put a top on the jar so it does not spill if tipped over.

RE: Solo RV'ing

Find a large parking lot of an closed business. Put out something that you regard as trees, etc. and practice. If you have nothing else. take a can of paint along and X in some imaginary things to avoid.

RE: Nature owl question

I love the owls and would love the campsite if we were in our backpacking tent. At almost 77 my share to carry uphill has gotten smaller.

RE: Pounds "average family packs"

We pack a lot but we seldom go for less than a week and often go for six weeks at a time. We are not often at places where we can just run into a store for food or something we have forgotten. In one week the temperatures can range from below freezing to shirt and jeans weather so we need a wide variety of clothes. We seldom watch TV so we need to take things along that we can do in case it rains for five days straight. That was this October. We pack in the spring and only add fresh food before we go.

RE: Most over rated attractions

Mount Rushmore was a disappointment to us. We were gone in less than an hour. We avoid "tourist traps".

RE: FDR state park or Pine Mountain RV resort

RV resort=few trees and little or no privacy state park= fewer amenities. Take your choice. We pick some state parks and few resorts. You have to decide what is most attractive to you.

RE: RMNP & YNP

We have always gone in September, sometimes spilling over to October.It can still be crowded. Make reservations at Yellowstone.

RE: Anyone just keep the first trailer?

Ours is getting old but is paid for and because we had an unexpected storm last fall we have a new awning paid for by the insurance company. Not getting old, has gotten old. And yes, my husband misses our pop up also sometimes.

RE: Homemade Butterfingers Candy

It does not sound much like Butterfingers to me but I have four bags of candy corn that I bought for seventy five percent off so I will try it and am sure I will enjoy it now that I have lost weight.

RE: What not to be without

While camping we have been asked for the loan of matches, sugar, bug sprayer, toothpaste, saw, ax, salt. Simple things that everyone should remember but people do not. Extra key to get in the door which we did not have but our grand daughter was able to climb in their 5W and open the door.

RE: Jury summons

Just let them know what happened. And do not worry.

RE: Trip report: Southern Utah

bryce is wonderful. The first time we went to Utah we stayed in motels for two weeks. Since them we have returned many times and see more in a smaller area each time. Now we spend three months in the winter there.

RE: Hyperparathyroidism-anyone have any experience with this

Dr. Norman did my parathyroid surgery also. Mine was nothing compared to what your MIL needs, just one removed and the tumors scrapped off the others. A friend just flew from Michigan to Florida to have her operation. And perhaps the doctor who is taking care of your MIL is even better but ask him.

RE: Whats the coldest you've camped w/o problems

When we camped in very low temperatures we had no problem but we had no running water thru the lines. We flushed the toilets by pouring water into the toilet and did that only if we had to get up during the night. Otherwise we walkded down to the park bathrooms. I think we poured some antifreeze down the toilet after we flushed. Did not drink anything after dinner so we were less apt to have to get up. It was much colder than it is supposed to be this weekend. And with all our precautions we still worry each time.
