RE: Kanab Utah home base for sightseeing?

We have done the area you want to see several times and have always preferred to change campsites rather than do all of that driving.

RE: No AC.... Deal breaker?

We always camp in the shade in heavily wooded sites. We do most of our camping in the spring and fall. But there are are times during the summer when we would be miserable camping without the AC. Two years ago during a Michigan summer the temperature was over 100.We would have had to go home without the AC. Ask people who live in your area what they do. Perhaps you only do mountain camping but we were very warm during an August we spent camping in BC.

RE: New owner of travel trailer- looking to equip

I have seperate First Aid kits and medicine kits. Both come in when when we get home so the heat does not bother them. It depends on how long you are going to be gone for some things. We never go for less than five days and usually for more. In other words we cannot depend on the weather forecast to decide how much bedding and jackets to take. If you know you are going to be gone for a weekend you should be able to determine what to take ahead of time. If for a month you have to be prepared for big changes in the weather. I have two lists on the inside of the pantry door. One for things that have to be replaced and one for things that I should think about not taking again.

RE: When did my name become a dirty word?

I was going to respond what Richards in our family used for their names but realized some of them would not pass muster. Why not become Dic which would be pronounced the same way but should not be edited.

RE: Yellowstone in late September

The only time we go. The elk and buffalo are coming down so you see them up quite close compared to how you see them during the summer. Go to the northern part of the park to see and hear the elk. It will be cooler so take some sweaters or light weight jackets. And perhaps have some mid-weight jackets with you.

RE: Newbie/ temporary living need advise

Sorry that everyone is raining on your parade. There are places where it is allowed but check and do not just hear about it from a friend.

RE: DIY sandwich meat

Several months ago I ran some baked turkey thru the food processor and froze in a a peanut butter jar. I took it out this morning, defrosted it and added mayo, chopped celery and a little relish to it. It tasted fine. I usually do not like frozen cooked turkey but this tasted as tho it had just been made. With just two people at home leftover turkey lasts forever and I was happy to learn that making it into sandwich spread for use in a few months works.

RE: DIY sandwich meat

Besides pulled pork I made pulled chicken or pulled turkey sandwiches. I grind some ham and a hot dog or two together, add mayo, celery and perhaps some chives. I shape hamburger patties and stick them them in the freezer so my husband can have one when he wants one, which is often. Once in a while I want a salmon sandwich. Now with only two of us at home, a small can is large enough. I had a friend who liked cold, mashed potato sandwiches. Not that hot mashed potato sandwiches sounds any better.

RE: looking for advice on building a rv port

We had a metal one installed also. Make it larger and taller than you think you need. Ours is on gravel which means I have go out and kill weeds that grow along the edges several times a year.

RE: Level 4 drought declared in southwest BC

While you are having drought we are having rain and more rain the last few months. Farmers fields have ducks and cranes swimming in them. Fields have large patches where nothing is growing because everything has been flooded out. I thought it was bad in Michigan but we drove thru northern Ohio and it was even worse.

RE: Anyone considered installing a real door inside?

Your dog must be feeling a lot of stress to be doing what he knows he should not do. Could you get a sheet to put on top of your bed during the day and pull the curtain back so he does not have to do it himself? When we left our cat we pulled the blinds up and laid his blanky where he could watch for us.

RE: Have no idea what I'm doing-help!

We have had both a cat and a dog who loved to lay in front of a fan when it was hot. Put a small fan blowing toward where your dog likes to sleep or where you would like him to sleep.

RE: Feedback on proposed NV - UT route

We have driven it several times. Fine, paved two lane road that was in good condition each time we drove on it. No gas stations until you are past Enterprise. Last time we were was in March.

RE: Financing Q's

We used our credit union. It had lower rates than our bank.

RE: Looking in to living fulltime in a RV

You did not mention if it will be just you or you, your wife, six children and two large dogs. What is possible or a good idea depends on who will be using it for home.

RE: The increadiable shrinking man

I have shrunk two inches and gained 15 pounds. Went on a diet yesterday, this time I have to keep it off.

RE: outside lite

I looked all over for the switch for one of our outside lights. Could not find it so did not use it for years. Embarrassed to say there was a small switch under the light. Did not turn on where the other outside light switches were.

RE: New Microwave/Convection

Get a convection oven cookbook. I have two that I bought at garage sales knowing that I will be getting one when this microwave goes so they do make them. New price on each of them is not bad.

RE: Keeping pets cool while parked, no AC in rig?

When we were camping in 100+ heat our cat lived in front of the fan. So did I.
