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.

RE: Theft at campgrounds???????????

Welcome! We have camped for 34+ years and have never had anything stolen. We do keep our bikes locked and lock the 5th wheel when we are gone. This has been asked many times over the years and I remember reading about thefts of coolers, some lawn chairs, and mostly beer I think. The funniest one I remember reading (although not funny to the ones it happened to) was reports from several campers that beer, chairs, firewood, steaks and other food was taken. I believe they found the chairs and remnants of the firewood but the steaks and beer were all gone.

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

I can't actually remember someone walking through our site. Once while camping with our daughter and her family a family walked right beside her TT window and startled her sleeping dog. Holly jumped up and barked loudly, not snarled just barked and the woman yelled at her. I let the woman know that Holly did not bark at anyone walking correctly on the road, but when someone walked right beside the window she was startled and barked, not the dog's fault. I did not get the feeling that this lady understood what I was saying.

RE: Trip Planning: The Perfect Family Trip 2016!

This will be an amazing trip. Yellowstone is an amazing adventure as is Glacier. While in the Mt. Rushmore area I would stop at the Crazy Horse Monument. It is a work in progress and being completed by the family of the original artist. We took similar trips with our kids and now as adults listening to them talk we know that they have amazing memories. Enjoy!

RE: Picnic Tables

We always use a tablecloth. When ready to leave, I always wait till DH pulls out and check out the site looking for anything left behind and making sure the site is clean. It seems by the comments that everyone on RV.net leaves everything clean. I have never read a comment from anyone who leaves sites a mess. Mmmm...tales of shame are silent or everyone here does the right thing?

RE: It's Now or Never - 1 year country tour

Have a wonderful trip. We took the kids for a month long trip west and as adults they have wonderful, funny, and some intense memories that we talk about a lot. I would suggest keeping a journal of your adventures, campgrounds, and all the funny things that happen.

RE: golf cart

Just wondering if there are places that golf carts are permitted for those who have the parking placard for people with disabilities only? We stay at a wonderful campground in Myrtle Beach, but the golf carts are to the point of being hazardous. Kids and adults "tour" the campground constantly. Riding a bicycle, walking a dog, or just walking to and from the beach is difficult. I appreciate the need for some in order for them to enjoy their experience and hope that there is a way to work this out.

RE: New trailer walk through

Also discuss and get a demonstration on winterizing. X3 on videotaping. Our daughter did that with her new TT and referred back to it a couple times. Make sure you know where the drain cap or valve for the fresh water tank is. When we went to fill our fresh water tank at the first campground we realized we did not have it. We looked all over and covered it with plastic wrap and rubber bands. When DH went to turn on the hot water heater, we found they had stored it in that compartment. The person filling next to us had a similar problem w/ water pouring out because they did could not find the valve.
