RE: Easter

First Camping weekend, Easter Weekend! We are heading to a Salt Fork State Park, Ohio. Our kids and grandkids will meet us there after church on Sunday. We will have an egg hunt, eat and play. In order to do this, we paid through Monday even though we will leave late Sunday afternoon.

RE: Heading out west - snake precautions.

As usual, someone posts a question, and I end up learning a lot from just reading. Thanks!!

RE: Took this last night

Thanks for posting this! I was up during the night looking but couldn't see through the rain and clouds. I appreciate this pic!

RE: RV Parks w/older RV restrictions

I think the 10 yr. restriction offends so many because it seems to stereotype older RV's and their owners as "less than desirable." I understand they own their business, and can make their rules. But maybe instead of an arbitrary number it would be more acceptable for campgrounds/resorts to actually say what they do not want in their campground. We have seen some absolutely beautiful vintage RV's - if you want to see which RV's get the most positive attention, watch the draw to a vintage RV.

RE: Is it going to end ?

Yesterday morning it was 70, this morning 32. We have a "beautiful" coating of snow and could end up with 1-3 inches.

RE: Hello.....Introducing ourselves

I will add my welcome Tim and Cheri. Your journey was similar to ours. Like you we traveled throughout the country with our children and now just the two of us, except when our daughter brings her TT or our grands come with us. We are looking forward to our son making his purchase in a couple years. Looking forward to hearing from you on the forum as you continue to make amazing memories. When you come through Ohio, we have wonderful state parks also.

RE: New Guy To The Forum

Welcome to another NE Ohioan! Look over the unit carefully for water damage. Look behind curtains that might hide water damage around and below windows, check out entire ceiling, seam areas, along every wall, carpets, flooring, corners. Carefully check out bathrooms. I would be nervous if the unit has been updated with new flooring or wall coverings. While that may be great, it could hide water damage. Once you get your unit, enjoy! We are lucky in Ohio to have wonderful State Parks. Also, if you are of retirement age, the Ohio Buckeye card has 10% discounts on weekends, and 50% discounts during the week.

RE: Food storage?

We store cereal, flour, sugar, rice, chips, etc. in plastic containers. I found some tall Lock and Lock containers that keep chips and cereal extremely fresh. I only use zip locks in the freezer. DH rifles through the cupboards like a puppy digging a hole, or I end up putting something on top of bags so anything in zip locks would not be safe. The bags would be torn or anything in them smashed.

RE: camping world

Wa8yxm is correct. CW maintenance facilities are only as good as the techs at the individual facility. The one closest has not been a good experience for us. We had a recall on the bumper of our Cougar 26SAB. The weld they did was awful, but my husband was not about to give them a second chance. They fixed the problem but it was a mess. He does all repairs himself.

RE: Boondocking safety

Thank you OP for posting this question. I found a lot of help here. My husband will be retiring in a couple years and has talked a lot about boondocking. One suggestion for the moderators though. Would you consider opening a forum called, "Camping with/without guns?" All the pro/anti gun activists could "shoot it out" on their own forum and stop hijacking so many discussions. Just a silly thought!

RE: Sadly selling our TT this Saturday....

Please continue to share your knowledge and experiences during this temporary down time. This forum is all about things to see and places to go as well as things one shouldn't do and places to avoid. I haven't hit the road for a couple of years, but I still have my RV. Life gets in the way sometimes, but its temporary. The itch to travel still exists and I intend to scratch it this summer. Couldn't have said it better. We look forward to hearing about your bew travels! X3 - We rarely traveled during MS/HS years. Now we travel more than ever. Enjoy this time with your family but please continue to help everyone here.

RE: Also just bought our first RV!

One suggestion I wish I had done. Keep a record of all the campgrounds you stay at throughout the country along with comments. Over 32+ years we have stayed at many wonderful campgrounds and would like to return...but have no idea of exact location or names. SO FRUSTRATING!

RE: Be careful hitching up

So sorry he was injured so badly. Thanks for posting this as a reminder to us, and thanks Spoon059 for the reminder to slow down and take those extra seconds. A couple months ago I posted a question about mistakes we don't want to repeat as we begin the new season. So many responded. We all make mistakes and we often get away lucky.

RE: De-Winterize?

We had 5 inches of snow on Saturday in Ohio but you are correct the weather looks warmer for this weekend. If you don't mind re-winterizing have a great time, but watch the weather forecasts carefully for night temps for the next several weeks. We have re-winterized before and it works out fine. Another thing we have done if we think the temps might drop around 30 degrees for a couple hours is to set the furnace at 45-50, and open all cabinets. We have done that in the fall also. After this never ending winter I would be careful. Have a great weekend.

RE: re: Pet treats

First, thanks for the ideas about homemade treats. I would like to try them. I hate the "distributed by" on treats because I absolutely refuse to purchase treats from China because I have no confidence they are safe. Usually there is a phone number on the back of the package and if I am uncertain about a treat I call and ask where it is made. I guess now I have to ask where the ingredients originate from.

RE: On the road-no advance planning

Several years ago we left Ohio for the West Coast without planning out the trip at all. I am the "master of the plan" and my husband wanted this trip to be plan free. It really was an amazing trip. Actually our friends at home were taking bets on which one of us would come home alive and which would be buried in an unmarked grave. They were very surprised I loved it. I still would prefer to plan everything, but at least I see that this can be fun sometimes. My husband now wants to leave on a trip, and because of exciting stops, never make the end destination. I don't get that at all!

RE: Myrtle Beach????

Sorry I can't explain better, maybe someone else can help. We took a little boat ride from I think Conway that went back in an area that would remind you of a rainforest. There were only the 4 of us and the boat tour owner probably because it was Sept.. He said that in mid summer you see a lot of wildlife particularly snakes...I would not do it mid-summer because snakes and I, NO Way!

RE: Advice needed on RV necessities...

x2 On the white potable drinking water hose. Stupid here did not even know they existed for about 28 years of camping. If you use a regular hose, your water will taste like your outside hose at home and you will end up hauling water for drinking and cooking. Make certain your ends are clean also. You can use something like clorox wipes each time. DH also screws the ends together when not in use so there is no contamination that gets in. Enjoy!!

RE: Did I make a mistake in Financing? How long do you finance?

As usual, this has gone from the OP asking a financial question to a philosophical discussion. That is OK with me, but...anyway, Yankeeslover - I am happy that you got some information here that eased your mind. Enjoy the amazing trips, adventures and memories you will have with your family. THOSE ARE PRICELESS!!

RE: Did I make a mistake in Financing? How long do you finance?

Yankeeslover - You sound a lot like me. I am terrified of debt. (I should tell you how I handle electric and gas bills if you want a good laugh!) We financed our small 5th wheel for 15 years, only because I was afraid of what would happen if we could not make big payments. We put a lot down on it, and I paid it off in a little over 2 years because we were financially in a position to do that, but I understand your concern. I agree with someone who said that if you want to, make double principal payments when possible if that makes you feel better. We are all different, we all have different financial issues so there is not one way that works for all. Enjoy your RV and the memories you will make.
