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.

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.
Reader1 07/08/15 01:29pm RV Pet Stop

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.
