RE: Insects..... Do you pick them up at RV parks?

When we go camping during the summer and have lots surrounded by lots of trees we take spay with in case we will need it.If we liked lots with one skimpy tree probably would not need to plan ahead for insects.

RE: Travel Trailer

Our TT has four bunks, they are long enough that each child can keep a Rubbermaid box at the end of the bunk. During the day it becomes a desk or table. It can hold their toys or extra clothes. When the children are older their boxes are stacked on the floor overnight. If you get bunks be sure to have something along the side that will keep them from falling out.

RE: Grand Haven, MI in early September

Some years you can go swimming in the fall and some years you cannot. I took my husband one year and while I swam, he stood there and shivered. Children will be more able to stand it than adults.

RE: Southern Utah-May 2015

Divide the state into several areas and add some state parks and NF sites into what you want to see. We found we were covering less miles and seeing much more each time we went. Now we spend two to three months in SW Utah every winter and are still finding things we have not known about in the area we go to. To make it worse there are some great thing nearby in the states surrounding Utah that you should see

RE: Puzzle this

My husband changed to the 500 piece puzzles when I found a tray large enough to hold one. The tray fits on one of the bunks when a puzzle is being worked on. Before that he was going to make one out of plywood. If you do make one be sure that it will fit thru doors with an unfinished puzzle on.

RE: Newbie looking for lightweight TT for living/traveling

Have you checked the average temperatures in the winter months for the area of Colorado you plan on spending your winters in?

RE: Using TT as guest house

We use ours as a guest house all of the time. We stock the refrigerator with drinks, have coffee for the coffee maker and leave a list of the TV stations we get. Some guests love the privacy and others use it only to sleep in.

RE: Sometimes camping just isn't fun as it should be

I tell my husband not to complain to me if he is not willing to complain to those in charge. Same to you.

RE: Got rid of the trailer, went back to tent camping

My husband and I still go tent camping, sometimes backpacking. At 76 I find it harder to carry my share up a mountain. I want a campground near good hiking so we have been going to state campgrounds in the back of beyond. I assume that all states have them tucked away. Some of them are great. Some are not.

RE: Low-carb ideas?

Cut the turkey into strips and dip into catsup. No bread. The only time I eat catsup.

RE: How do you hang your bath towels?

We hang ours outside. If we are having rain we hang them over the closet rod that we hung high over the shower-tub. Would not work if you are very tall. When we started out I bought the very thickest towels that I bought at half price at a discount mall. They took up to much room in the linen closet so I changed to some that were not quite as thick. They take up less room in the linen closet and dry quicker. Dry just as well.

RE: Pet ID tags, What info to put on it?

Years ago a dog followed me home. We contacted the owner because his telephone number was on the tag.

RE: wild foods

I just looked at my wild food field guides and found they are too big because they usually cover everything. Perhaps if you check Amazon you might find what you want.

RE: Bryce or Zion first? Which has less to walk?

I was just looking at my pictures of Bryce and Zion. Bryce is incredible. Zion is really nice but Bryce beats Zion.

RE: Utah Big 5 loop in Oct- no reservations??

We have made the circut several times in October and the only place we have had trouble finding a site has been in the Moab area. Plan so that you arrive on Thursday to stay the weekend. Make a list of all the National Forest campgrounds as well as BLM campgrounds so you have some place to go to if you cannot find a campsite in a National Park. There are also some state parks along the way.

RE: How many days to fill gray and black holding tanks???

Our senssors were accurate until a year ago. Now I just look on them as habitual liars.

RE: Have you gone from a larger rig to a smaller one?

Friends went from a 23 foot TT to 35 feet TT. Found that was a mistake, they go to state and NF parks, not RV parks and it was too big. Whatever they have now is smaller than the first TT they had. They made four changes in ten years.

RE: wild foods

If you are buying a book, get something with very good pictures. I learned dozens of plants you can eat wild but mostly stick to the wild berries.
