RE: RV Park near Four a Corners

If you have children they might enjoy bending over and putting their feet in two states and their hands in two others. If you are an adult it is not worth going out of your way to see. Takes about four minutes to see everything.

RE: Labor Day and what are your plans?

Getting ready to leave for the State Park on the 3rd. Our nearby state park has large lots and good rangers but we did not decide to go until a month ago so no lots were left. For most of the time we will be there the park will be almost empty except for the weekend.

RE: RV Sheet Sizes?

I have a set of jersey twin fitted sheets that fit the long bunks and another set of cotton sheets that did not. I cut across the fitted percale sheet and added a strip of fabric. Both work. We have four bunks, two long and two regular but all are narrower than regular twin beds.

RE: Mt Rushmore

We were very disappointed in Mt. Rushmore. It took us less than an hour to decide it was not for us. You may love it. We did not.

RE: Getting ready for a trip.

I hit the garage sales and cleaned house. Stocked my trailer from that and than bought what I still needed. Only fresh food has to be packed the last few days. Oops, one more thing. Start having to put heavier clothes in for fall camping and possible snow in October.

RE: Arrrghhh! MICE!

While we took our cat with us, we had no mice. I assume that the odor kept them away. Friends found a mouse nest made of dryer sheets. I assume that means they do not work.

RE: Winter Mildew Prevention in Cold Northern Climes

We have an 03 Outback. It has spent every winter outside in Michigan. Battery is brought into the house so it can be recharged a few times. Never had any mildew. We do have to keep the refrigerator and freezer doors open.

RE: taking cats into canada

We went to our vet and told him that we were going to Canada, what did we need for our cat. He knew what to do and provided us the papers. Call your vet and ask for his, or her, advice.

GLF biscuit mix

So many of you who have to be GF and want the recipe I am posting it here as with typing with one hand is really hard for me. Not that it hurts but that my left hand does not know where the letters are. I make about five pounds at a time so I had to search for the original recipe that I took mine from as I assume that anyone else would like to try it with less. Biscuit Mix 2 3/4 cup GF flour. 3 T. baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking so lt 1/8 cup sugar 2 1/2 Tea salt 1 cup less 1T shortening Mix dry ingredients together and when well mixed cut in the shortening. After it is partialy mixed I use my small electric mixer to finish the job. I cover the vents on the mixer with tape so the flour does not clog it up. I have decreased the amount of baking sods in the original recipe from two teaspoons and the amount of sugar from 1/4 cup. They would probably be more fluffy with more baking soda but I did not like the taste. You can subsitute this cup for cup with recipes for regular Bisquick. Not for the GF product. If you sign up at the Bisquick website they send you recipes every few weeks. I use the Featherweight mix from the later Bette Hagman cookbooks, 1/3 rice flour, 1/3 cup tapioca flour and 1/3 cup corn starch.

RE: kid chopping down live trees?

We saw the same thing 40+ years ago. Before cell phones but another camper went miles into a gas station to use a phone to report it and the rangers were soon there placing a call to the boys parents and their fun was haulted and they had to leave the park.

RE: Wife has 3 cats

We had a bunk house so our cat had a bunk with a section for litter box, a section for food and a third section for napping. And did we get told we had made a mistake when we got them in the wrong place. The litter box sat in a larger low box to keep the litter contained. We introduced our cat to a leash after being an indoor cat and he loved to go for walks at the campground and sit, while tied up, around the campfire with us.

RE: DIY gluten free baked goods

Dcason.....Use a bread recipe for pizza dough. On the road in a six week trip with a tent I used the crisp taco shells for pizza. They can be cooked over a campfire in a pan with a lid, in an oven, microwave or frying pan on a stove. I love Bette Hagmans cookbooks also but the biscuit recipe she uses in on of her early books is terrible. Has way too much baking soda it. She inproves it in later books.

RE: DIY gluten free baked goods

Any decent sized grocery store has the GF mixes for cakes, cookies, brownies and Bisquick. I never looked in that section so I did not know stores were carrying them. Do not look in the GF section but where the regular cake mixes are. After so many years without them I just make my own from scratch.

RE: DIY gluten free baked goods

I have been gluten free for over 30 Years. This letter comes when I am away from home and my GF cookbooks. Go to the library and look over the GF cookbooks they have. If you live in a village like I do go to the library in a larger town near you. Some of the cookbooks are wonderful and some are junk. Years ago they did not make GF Bisquick so I fiddled around until I could make my own. Now I make four to five pounds of my own. Costs the same as one pound of the stuff at the store. I mix 75 pounds of various flours together to make my own flour mix and it lasts me for a year of baking. When I had to go GF I threw away about 40 of my useless cookbooks. Now I can convert any recipe. Cheaply.

RE: Zucchini Cakes

My GF biscuit mix has Crisco cut into it. I went the other way. Before GF I was very thin and I gained weight after I learned what was wrong. Doctors asked my husband if I was making myself vomit to be so skinny.

RE: Zucchini Cakes

Donna, I make mine gluten free. I make my own biscuit mix and everything tastes fine. Even my husband likes what I make. They did not make GF mix years ago and I missed Bisquick so I learned how to make my own.

RE: Raw, uncooked pasta sauce

Good idea, I have been grating Zucchini and freezing it.

RE: Zucchini Cakes

Why don't zucchinis practice birth control. We planted two and have picked 47 so far this summer. Tonight I will scrap out the seeds and put a stuffing in the cavity. Love the zucchini cakes.

RE: work and camping..

Have you considered a trailer or 5th wheel? We rejected the 5th wheel because we need the cap on the back of our truck and would be putting it on and off from April thru November. If you do not need a cap you could get either.
