RE: Every regret your small TT?

Friends regretted their small RV. They bought something larger. Too large. They bought something smaller. Now on number four. We are still on first trailer, 2003. I wonder if they will have a new one this year.

RE: Canned ham?

Years ago I tried Dinty Moore stew and Spam so was prepared to hate canned ham and canned chicken. Found the chicken edible with home made gravy and the ham well worth taking when without refrigeration. Knew someone who ate the canned chicken and loved it. I found it no more than edible. Took whatever brand of ham was available so do not have a favorite. Husband loves both Spam and DM stew. UGH.

RE: Outside kitchen?

I use the outdoor stove often but use the dishpans with water from inside. I looked at a unit with the full outdoor kitchen and thought it made the inside kitchen too small. We have a large awning and I set up a table under it that I can put dishpans, electric frying pan or anything else on. We got could seat six at the table if we had too or we could put the picnic table under the awning.

RE: Miracle Whip vs. mayonnaise- what's your flavour...?

I have not liked either since I was expecting my first child 56 years ago. I can eat either one if I have to. My husband likes Miracle Whip so that is what we usually have

RE: campfire

I have known two people who died starting their fires with something they threw on so I make my own with picture puzzle pieces, dryer lint and melted wax. If I do have have enough lint I use dry wood chips.I make them in paper cups. Last week I made 63 so I will have enough for the rest of the year and part of next year. I melt the wax in a large slow cooker that I bought for almost nothing at Goodwill. Husband had helped me by throwing away the dryer lint bag so I had to use wood chips and puzzle pieces with a candle in each one. Candles come from Dollar Tree.

RE: How young to take children??

When our church took a group camping one family took their three week old. Worked fine. My husband was in charge of the group and walked by their site several times to be sure that neighbors would not be disturbed by crying but was was relieved that he did not hear any. We were at a park with large private sites. worked

RE: Smoky Mountains National Park

Several years ago we hiked to a back country campsite. There was a fire ring on the site. It was an assigned site. Would love to go back but eighty is too old to backpack that far.

RE: What are you reading?

I buy lots of used books about the civil war. More than I wanted to read but the last month I sorted them out and have been reading them. I am on my eleventh book now. Glad that I knew the time would come when I would want to read them. I have seven or eight books about WWI that I might read when I am tired of the Civil War.

RE: GRUMPY OR WHAT?

The state park we spend our summer camping in really enforces things like that. See if the parks you are in do the same if someone complains. Having music playing quietly might be enough to keep you from noticing the noise.

RE: First time camping in bear country in popup.

We tent camped in bear country for six weeks. We were very careful about food being nowhere except the trunk of the car in a good ice chest, There were other tent campers where we were and none of us had any problems. Be careful, have good bear spay with everyone. And again, be careful. When we did dishes we added some bleach to the dishwater so the dishes would not smell like food. Do not dispose of dishwater near popup. And we did see bear within a mile of the campground.

RE: Michigan Trip

We were in the UP seven years ago and found some things we wanted to see were closed for the season. Check if you will be there. And if you want to go to Canada you will need a passport to get back into the US. Be sure you have reservations for Labor Day weekend.

RE: How to sleep four in a trailer for two?

Are you going to be somewhere that you can set up a tent?

RE: Tips, advice on erecting outdoor shower?

Just remembered seeing an ice shanty used to a shower.

RE: Tips, advice on erecting outdoor shower?

I saw a hula hoop with shower curtains hanging from it used as an outdoor shower. I hung from a tree and I was not close enough to see any more.

RE: Awning Cleaning???

We were given something by the dealer when we bought the TT. It did not work. We bought some Tilex which was all we found in the area we were in. Did not think it would work any bettr but it did. Have used it ever since and am pleased with it.

RE: Dinnerware for RVing

We use some Corelle ware plus some good microwaveable for baking. We also have some paper plates for lunches that are mostly sandwiches. When we travel they are kept in place by foam swimming noodles. Corelle breaks into lots of tiny pieces when it breaks.

RE: Sleeping bear dunes camping??

They have quite a few sites that are large enough. On ABC someone said it had the best sites of any National Park and now it is difficult to get in. Good luck.

RE: Frustrated by short beds and uniformed salesmen

Your toddler can take a shower. Take your pillow and make it narrower and you need a shorter bed.Do you really sleep on your back all stretched out? If you do you probably snore. Sleeping on you side will probably lead to a happier marriage. Your knees bend and you do not need as much length. My six foot four uncle said he had to adapt to the world as it was. And would I be disgusted if everything was too short for me. Good luck in your search. One of our old Keystone Outback bunks is longer but it is so narrow it would probably not help you at all.
