RE: Suggestions for a Good Mosquito repellant?

Reading these it occurs to me that the reason I have no trouble with mosquitoes is because I always sit outside with a fan on.Thank you I hate hot weather and the fan must be working for the mosquitoes.

RE: REEFER: Common Practices

We empty and clean ours between uses. Prop the doors open until it is time to use it again.

RE: In search of large family Bunkhouse

I just looked at a picture of my mother camping when she was in her teens, the oldest of nine children. It must have been the early twenties. They slept in several large tents. Have you considered adding a tent?

RE: Lights on?

We would take our cat for a walk every night that the weather was decent at 11PM. We were always surprised at how many people had several of their outside lights on while it looked like no one was up inside. Any of ours that were on would go out when we went to bed. And usually no one was sitting around any campfires at that time of night. Afraid of the dark??????

RE: how do I stop hung clothes flying off rod when traveling

I assume our clothes are hung so close together it is not a problem for us. If we have clothes hanging on hangers over the shower curtain rod they stay hanging also. Sorry, no help.

RE: Paper towel holder and opening drawers

I bought childproof latches for my husband to install but before he got them on he found the latches were loose. He tightened them and they still work after twelve years. Hopefully that may be your problem.

RE: Why we luv our rig

Storage, lots of storage. Two closets, large wardrobe, linen closet in the bathroom, and four bunks to store things on or clean off and use for grandchildren. And I forgot, the pantry in the kitchen, storage under the seats at the table and some under the sofa. We can sleep six without having to make up the beds from the table or the sofa bed. And I love the big awning.

There are quiet hours at night but the rest of the time is loudness is not allowed Six day weekend over the forth at Fort Custer SRA near Augusta, MI. Quiet time at night but that does not mean that the rest of the time is loud.

RE: Cooking potatoes in campfire

I cheat, I put mine in the microwave for a few minutes before I wrap and put in among the coals. And pierce the potato before putting in the microwave.

RE: The old way to camp

Did anyone besides me notice the woman's shoes and the child's dress? Saw that and am now quite sure that it is not for real.

RE: Food Storage

I bought a large metal can at a garage sale for a quarter. I think it came full of pop corn. I left several opened bags of chips in it by mistake over the winter. Not only was everything safe from insects and animals the chips tasted fresh when we found them this spring. I will do it on purpose from now on.

RE: Slide-Outs @ Walmart

When you ask for permission to spend the night they should tell you if slides are allowed.

RE: Rice cooker meals??

I bought one for a dollar at a garage sale and only used it for rice. Sounds like I will be able to do a lot more with it. Thank you.

RE: I think its time for my daughter to change jobs

Give her our love and admiration. For your sake I hope she changes fields, for the sake of the children she teaches, I hope she stays.

RE: In search of large family Bunkhouse

In theory our Outback will sleep ten. I do not think it would live eight. Four in bunks, two on bed made up from the table and two on the sofa bed and two in the queen bed. Two of the bunks are a little longer than average and might hold two if the children were small enough, with something down the center. Are any of your children old enough to sleep in tents?

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.

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.
