RE: Campgrounds and length of stay

We have found some state and Federal campgrounds that have a two week limit during the season and unlimited before and after the season.

RE: buying advice for family of 5 plus grandma

Add up the cost estimate of Amtrak plus meals against the price of the RV, gas, nightly lot rentals. Amtrak is going to be cheaper. Sorry. And do two estimates of gas, one on what it is now and one with a dollar a gallon more expensive. Ask Grandma if she really thinks she cannot fly considering the price. The seats on the Amtrak train are nice for sleeping in so she would not need on of their tiny rooms. If she decides on Amtrak she should bring a blanket. They supply blankets but they are not much.An extra throw is nice.

RE: Advice on buying a travel trailer for lakeside site

Where are you getting drinking water from? Waste disposal? Guests are more fun in theory than in fact in a small area. We could sleep a dozen in our TT. we could not live 12. And I do know someone who did put in six spaces on a lake so each of her children could camp.

RE: Outdoor Area For Cats

Our cats learned to walk on leashes and when we sat by the fire they were tied up next to us.

RE: Land Travel To Canada From USA

Going to and from Canada is no problem, coming back into the US is. I do not know if it has gotten worse in the last five years but expect to be treated like an enemy alien coming back. And of course it may have gotten better.

RE: Too much junk

It is not my fault. Everything that I have to have reproduces. We have four bunks and only bring a grandchild once in a while. The bunks are used to storage. Again it is not my fault, it is the fault of the bunks.

RE: Helpful hints for stocking up that new RV on a budget

Ask at you Goodwill store if they have an As Is store, and they may call it something different. It is the store where they get everything that did not sell in their regular stores. Something that is a bargain in the regular store will cost much less in the As Is store. I buy those "great" thing advertised on TV, still in the boxes and never used for two dollars. Of course sometimes they are not worth that whatever they have said on TV.

RE: Need some help or opinions !!!

We winterize and use containers of water. We do use the toilet and added a cointainer of Anti-Freeze to it. We are looking at -7 so our winters are not much like yours.

RE: Winter Camping

We not only have camped in our TT when it is cold and snowing but we have camped in a tent in the same weather. And have not been the only one in the campgrounds.

RE: the 3 most important charecteristics of your TT to you

Pull down stove top outside. Four bunks, never have to make table or sofa into beds, they can be used for storage when we are alone. Linen closet in bathroom.

RE: To those that RV on a budget

If I wrote down every cent we spent I found that we spent less money than if we did not. Candy bars at a dollar each add up to two or three nights camping a month. Newspapers are a big expense but my husband has to have one.

RE: Any old time RVers around?

In the late 40s we went camping with a homemade tent trailer that my father traded a row boat for. I have found no pictues of it.

RE: That time of year for illness

I have not had a cold, flu or sinus infection in years. I have no idea why. I probably will not be here tomorrow as I will catch one after the other this week. Probably no flu as I always have the shot in the fall.

RE: Tragic !!!!

We had ice covered roads and trees down across the roads, no electricity. All the local stores were closed. Delivery trucks could not have made it too our house if they were planning on it. We had no problem with delivery due to the weather because we got everything early.

RE: Changing cat from indoor/outdoor to indoor only

I would have said it was impossible until a month ago. Ten years ago a neighbor began to feed a cat that showed up. He fed him for four years and died. his wife took over and than we took over when she became ill. Cat would never come in anyones house. We were gone to much and the man next door took over feeding him. The weather turned awful a month ago and when he opened the door to feed the cat, it scooted into his house. Buster has been an indoor cat ever since. Perhaps he was an indoor cat ten years ago but for the last ten years he had been an outdoor cat. And our Opie was an indoor-outdoor cat when we adopted him. He learned that he was not allowed outside unless he was on a leash after several months and did not try to get out altho we watched carefully to make sure he did not get out at campgrounds unless he was tied up.

RE: lost our furry kid

I felt so sorry for you and than I realized that the ones to feel sorry for are those who have never had the love of a pet. Happy memories.

RE: Full timing in a tent?

I have been thinking about this and we have seen several families doing it over the years while we camped and I remembered something that I have noticed. The woman always seems to have a lot of work to do, child care, hand washing clothes, preparing meals. making do. We have had no problem camping in a tent for six weeks at a time but my husband always does his share. he does not think that the man sets up the tent and he is done.
