RE: USA Urban Stays Versus Canada

Our son and his wife tent camped near a large urban area with a high crime rate. Gave me a stomach ache thinking about it. They never had any problems with crime, Did not own a gun. They were in state parks.

RE: Cold Weather!

We got our electric blanket at Kuhl's. full size. I would guess that similar stores also have them. Not as cheap as Walmarts but we bought ours in the spring when they were half off. We also have a down comfortor that works as well.

We have three sets, one in the trailer, one in my husband's pocket and one hidden in the truck. Had to lend out our six year old grand daughter to crawl in someones locked 5W;

RE: Ludington VS Sleeping Bear / Platte River Campground

Platt River has sites that are large and private which is what we like. Most of the sites have electricity but one loop does not. Get your reservation in now as ever since someone came out with the information that they have the best NP sites they fill up fast,

RE: Transporting a large cast iron griddle

I have my great grandmother's. We have a folding table that goes under the awning in front of the trailer. I made a heavy, plastic fitted cover for the table. Rubbermaid storage boxes fit under the table. One of them has, among many other things. the griddle. We are camping 80-100 nights most years. Nothing has ever been stolen from under the table. The griddle could also be wrapped in a heavy towel and put under the sofa. If we are traveling the boxes stay on one of the bunks.

RE: Fitted sofa bed cover?

I made something like a fitted bed sheet to go on our sofa. It is heavier, washable fabric that tucks into the center and stays firmly in place

RE: Strange Weather

Our pussywillows were out two weeks ago. It is nowhere near time for them to be blooming, or whatever the word would be for pussywillows to be out. It looks like it will be possible for people to ski north of us, it has been too warm until now. And that will be on man made snow. not natural.

RE: How to stay warm

We have an electric blanket on the bed and electric throws to wrap up with before we go to bed. We also have a down blanket that can go on top of the electric blanket.

RE: All these Years I missed out!

My husband always knew he would not like this or that so would never try things his mother had not made. Over the years he has tried new things and found that they are great.

RE: Lets Talk - TT Vs Fifth Wheel

We need a cap of our truck too often to keep taking it off when we want to use the 5w. It just would not work to be putting it on and off on we want to go camping. Both of us are too old.

RE: Easy Peppermint Patties

Wonderful. Grandson is coming tomorrow and I think we will make them.

RE: Gas or Electric

We use an electric blanket at night and do not need much more in the way of heat if the temperature is in the 20s or 30s. And we sleep close together. The heat is turned up before we get out of bed in the morning.

RE: Texas state inspection

No, not in all states. We buy one plate and it is good as long as we own the trailer.

RE: Single RVing Mother (parent)

We often see mother's with children at campgrounds. We stop and ask if they want to drop by our campsite and pick up wood that we will be leaving.

RE: The Husband ~ The Mall ~ The Purse

My husband still remembers having to hold our three year old daughters doll while we were shopping. That would have worked well.

RE: Declining interest in RVing?

Seventy-eight and husband has just begun to make our reservations for next year. Going thru the tent camping things to see if anything has to be replaced so we will be going in both the TT and the tent. Interest has not declined. Have you been to Europe for hotel and B and B vacations? We took time out for vacations in Europe that might be a nice change. You can get those where you get the whole deal planned out but we always planned our own.

RE: 7 December 1941

I have always remembered that day. My father took me across the street to my grandparents house holding my hand and Mr. Mende came out to talk to him about what happened. Big boy cousins died in the war but youngest uncles came home.

RE: broad brimmed Hats for men- suggestions

My hat is washable. I wash it by hand but it would probably be OK if washed in a machine. It did not say washable but I could tell that the fabric was washable. Husband also has a straw hat that can be rinsed.

RE: Moles in the lawn!

We tied our cat Opie out in the back yard. That was the end of the moles.
