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.

RE: Wild Fire in Glacier NP - this is bad

My daughter and family were there a couple weeks ago with temps in the 90's each day. This fire is so scary. Thoughts and prayers are with everyone including first responders. So very sad!

RE: Rude campers to the extreme

Leggy, I don't think "rude people are accepted here.". Your second explanation showed you tried to work with the staff but it did not work. Being told to use earplugs would have made almost all of us furious. Your response was probably knee jerk, especially since you had your family with you. I would not have trusted jerks not to be crazy also and could be dangerous. Most of us would tell you that while things like this happen once in awhile, it is rare so have an amazing experience next time.

RE: Where are the women RVers?

I never pay much attention to Poster's gender. When I post a technical question my husband is dictating it to me.

RE: Campground manners

This is a tough one. It would be best if the park ranger could deal with it. I would avoid confrontation - you never know how crazy people are. Remember - "Never argue with an idiot - the will bring you down to their level, and beat you with their experience.". We camp with a dog. I think I would let her do her business throughout the weekend along the side where they are coming through and not clean it up until we are ready to leave. We would never normally do that - but that might discourage the use of our campsite as a highway.

RE: Someone reported me and my dog

I am just so glad the child was not hurt. We often see kids walking dogs that they can not control because the child is too little. In this case the child and dog might have been fine but for the OP's dog attacking. As an adult, I might have trouble controlling my dog if it was attacked so the fact that it was a child walking the other dog has no bearing on the fact that her dog was attacked. Dog owners are 100% responsible for their dogs at all times. If this child had gotten hurt the responsibility would have been with the OP.

We camp in Ohio State Park campsites throughout the summer and have traveled throughout the country for 30+ years. Our experiences have been pretty positive. We have rarely been around trashed sites or restrooms. Our system has always been that DH pulls out of the site and I check it to make sure all is well and the site is perfectly clean. That has helped us over the years. Darn vent left open on pop up, purse on the picnic table, dog leash beside picnic table, electric plugged in... well you get my point.

RE: Teenagers getting bored

We have never spent much time in campgrounds during the day except rainy days. Our kids grew up hiking and biking. We also vacationed in Nat'l Parks and we were busy all the time. I am sure it is tougher now since kids are use to having electronics. Have a family meeting before going and find out what they want to do, have lists of possibilities in the area you are going. I bought the book, Scary Campfire Stories I and II. (I think that was the title.). This is no book for little ones. I would read stories aloud at night when the kids were teens. They loved it and I never slept after reading them. Good luck!\

RE: Lyme Disease and Ticks!

I also keep hearing that ticks are bad this year. Thanks for reminding us about the ticks but also thanks for reviewing what symptoms Lyme Disease causes. I hope your son is soon 100%

RE: 23 minute dump time?

We often talk about writing a book called, "Dump Station Stories," but don't know who would read it. We have waited that long for people before also. The strangest was when a TT was finished and the hose was put away a lady must have filled a 5 gallon bucket of non potable water a couple dozen times taking it into the camper. The funniest was the guy who put both hands on the side of his 5th wheel and pushed back and forth so hard I thought the unit would fall over..."DH said he was shaking the sh.. out of it.". I'll stop there are just too many stories. We have a system. He starts dumping when he is finished with the black, I go in run some into the toilet and put in the sanitizer. I am out before he finishes, he cleans the hose and we go. In the fall he flushes the system when no one is behind us.

RE: Adirondack Mountain Camping

It seems like there is a lot to do. We normally do a lot of hiking and like to see local history, crafts, etc. We would probably avoid 6 Flags. Thank you so much, we have a lot to review and decisions to make.

Adirondack Mountain Camping

We are planning a trip to Acadia Nat'l Park this fall and want to stop somewhere in the Adirondacks. If you have been there do you have any information on attractions, things not to miss, and where you would recommend camping. Thanks in advance. Last year you gave us amazing information about the U.P. of Michigan.

RE: How do you feel about people walking through your campsite?

We had a funny experience this weekend. While sitting outside we heard loud voices in the woods behind us. About 8 adults and kids came out of the woods into our campsite. They seemed to be quite inexperienced hikers (flip flops) and had gotten lost. They were tired and thrilled to see campers. They kept telling us they were so sorry to walk on our site. We were all laughing together reassuring them it was fine and asked if they needed anything. They just needed to find their campsite.

RE: Any "must see" areas in the GreatL Lakes region?

I do not know how much time you have but we recommend Pictured Rock Nat'l Lakeshore to everyone. We think it is one of the most beautiful places in the country.

RE: Memorial Day

While honoring our fallen Veterans I think about so many of you who served and lost friends and comrads. We will never understand what those who serve in combat have gone through, or the sacrifices they and their families have made. Thank you is never enough. I think we should always think about this when we say "send troops" and understand what sending troops really means. My husband served - Vietnam 101 Airborne 1969-70.

RE: Driking from fresh water tank

We sanitize once a year, take water from home for weekend camping and drink the water from our camper. We have never had a problem.

RE: Perfect backing!

Wife helping me back in would have to have a marriage counselor involved. She disappears and I get help from one of my male friends. No yelling and screaming that way. My job is pretty simple. I am just there to tell him if he is going to hit something and to watch for kids on bikes etc. When I think it might be right I tell him "GOAL" - get out and look and we are done.

RE: Remember your HS Physics?

Thanks for this post. I understood next to nothing but DH enjoyed it a lot. He is the Math & Science member of the family... and I rarely know what the heck he is talking about.

Perfect backing!

Last weekend we camped with family and friends (1 TT and 2 FW). All three were backed perfectly in place. DH can back anything but sometimes he likes to try a different approach and neighboring campers pull up their lawn chairs for the show. Sorry but no show this weekend... but keep those lawn chairs handy, you never know.:)

RE: Keystone Passports...Good-Bad or ???

Our friends have a Keystone Passport. Initially they had an issue with slide that was repaired under warranty. They really enjoy their Passport.
