RE: Backing up your rig.

It varies. It seems when my husband wants to put it right in he seems to use his mirrors. When he wants to be creative it seems like he looks backwards. That's when all the neighbors bring out their lawn chairs to watch the show. My only job is to let him know if he is going to hit something and tell him GOAL. We have fun with it.

RE: not snowbirding

Enjoy the new baby! It is amazing how we change our plans for our grandchildren. I am retired and husband is not. When he retires in a couple years we will not be snowbirds. We love the winters and snow...I know we are oddities but I can't wait for the first snow.

RE: Favorite soup recipes

Does anyone have a favorite potato corn chowder or soup without cheese that they can share?

RE: How often do you cook in the RV

It depends on weather and where we are. DH always cooks breakfast in the RV. If the weather is good, we normally grill and eat salads that I made at home. I love taking soups in the crock pot for fall camping. Rainy days we cook inside a lot. If we are at the ocean, DH likes to buy local seafood and cook on the outside burner of the RV. If we are in Maine, we eat out so he can have lobster. In Michigan we eat out once so he can have Pasties. It varies a lot but we do use the stove and oven inside.

Favorite soup recipes

A couple years ago we had a posting asking for favorite soup recipes. We have many new members so asking again. As fall approaches one of my favorite foods for camping is soup. Can you please post your favorite soup recipe - meat or meatless.

RE: What happened?

bgum so sorry to hear that. I agree that recipes are not as common. It may help to start a topic. I will try it.

RE: How to avoid Mice thru Winter Storage

We check all openings and caulking areas, clean and take everything out of the fifth wheel, including barbeque grill. But we live in the country... We cover the camper but DH puts mouse traps in the basement areas. He then "checks his trap lines" throughout the winter. We have caught a few, and none have gotten any further than that area.

RE: Lighting the oven

My wife just gets her husband to do it!:W Yes, my husband lights the oven. He says it is easier if he lights the burners first, turns them off and then lights the oven. I don't know if there is any reason for this... cause I did not listen too well.

RE: Dealing with Loss

The loss of a pet is so hard, our pets are our families and the pain can be tremendous. When we lost our ACD mix Maggie I thought we would never be the same, especially my son. He was dating his now wife who promised if they got married and had a daughter she would be named Maggie. I now have a beautiful granddaughter named Maggie... so be careful what names you use. Our Emily is almost 12, is slowing down and we know one day we will no longer have her. She is the smartest, best dog possible and we talk now about what a wonderful life we have given her and she has given us, kind of trying to prepare. I do know that if I make it to Heaven I want to talk to God about wishing our pets lived as long as humans. It is on my list of things to talk about.

RE: Where to RV in Ohio?

Ohio has some wonderful state parks across the state parks with lots of hiking and biking. You can also camp and head to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Pro Football Hall of Fame, Cedar Point, King's Island, Amish Country, lots of other ideas depending on what you like. Also... throughout the summer you will hear "Come to Michigan" advertisements on radio and TV daily. They have an amazing travel advertising plan, but it is also all true, Michigan is beautiful.

RE: Mt. McKinley is once again Denali

It does not matter whether it was a Democratic or Republican decision to return the name to the original Athabaskan name of Denali. It was the right thing to do. President McKinley never visited Alaska. It was originally called McKinley by a gold prospector during the time of McKinley's run for President. The Ohio Delegation was successful in changing it to honor McKinley. No disrespect to President McKinley but it is time to return the name to honor the Athabaskan people. And... yes I am an Ohioan.

RE: Advice on storing in a backyard.

We have a full gravel pad. As usual... wife is right (joking). The full gravel pad also helps when going in and out of the camper not tracking in mud etc.

RE: Allowing my SO to take our unit for the weekend ?

As my husband says when he wants the "No" to be stronger... "this is not a no, this is a hell no!". I drive a lot and use to pull our TT, but have not pulled the 5th wheel, no reason I just have not. I do know that unhooking a 5th wheel must be done by following a very specific routine. I never interrupt him when he is unhooking. Just too much can go wrong and can result in damage or injury. If it is really important to your wife to experience this weekend, tell the friends that you have to go on Friday or it just is not worth the trip and perhaps another weekend would be best.

RE: No drought in Washington eh....

My thoughts and prayers are with fire fighters, families, all those who live and were possibly camping in the affected areas. I am sickened that we would rather listen to politicians, radio talking heads than research and read what the majority of scientists are saying. Climate change (NOT global warming) is not a democratic/republican argument - it is a scientific study.

RE: Great Grandaughter Camping

We love to take the 4 grants (ages 11, 7, 7, 3) camping with us and they love it also! Helping children form positive memories is one of the best things we can do for children.

RE: Best Camping - Bar Harbor - Acadia Nat'l Park Area

Thank you so much. These sound like really great places. We appreciate the help so much. Last year we took your advice when we went to Michigan and had wonderful campgrounds.

Best Camping - Bar Harbor - Acadia Nat'l Park Area

We plan to go to Acadia Nat'l Park in September and would like to know your favorite campground. We do not need full hookup but do at least want electric. We have been there three times and once had a great campground but do not remember the name. Your help, as always, is appreciated.

RE: Is downsizing a bad idea?

We have the Cougar 26SAB fifth wheel. It is the perfect size for the two of us. The weight is 6900 dry. I know Cougar is not one of the "top" models, but we like it. We even take our 4 grandchildren camping with us once in awhile, and even though it is tight we have a great time.

RE: Tips for merging

Well... since I will be no help and my "scared" noises don't help my husband, I close my eyes and count 60 seconds. By the time I open my eyes we are already down the road. (True, but I thought I would lighten up the mood a little here.)

RE: KOA ridiculous charge

I agree that the OP should have pulled out if he thought the price was outrageous. How many of us have walked out of a restaurant at least once because the prices are crazy high, or decided not to purchase something because of price. Yes, that is our right. To boycott all KOA's for the experience, no. We have only stayed at KOA's a handful of times and have had no problems.
