RE: Feeling pretty good about KOA Wilmington NC

http://www.oceanbreezefamilycampground.com/amenities.php. Another choice, and on Topsail Island. Just North of Wilmington, there is http://www.lanierscampground.com/. and Surf City family CG on the island it self. If fact Surf City is the only oceanfront CG between Myrtle Beach, and The OBX. It is however small, and closed for winter. these are just a few choices, IF you sometime can't get into the KOA. Holden and Shalotte are not far from Wilmington. Are any of these big rig friendly ? When we visit family in Wilmington, we also stay at the KOA, but would welcome a change in scenery , if they would fit us. We are 43ft MH towing a pickup Ocean Breeze appears to be, and Lanier's. When we were at Surf City there was a huge Class A in a site. But the sites there are pretty tight. They will put your TT on your site for you. I would also suggest you google Holden Beach campgrounds. A good number pop up. Some on the waterway.

At the Wilmington KOA we are like, 15 minutes from Wrightsville where family lives. But, I much prefer the quiet and less crowded campground. There are many times a year when the Wilmington KOA is booked solid. If you're going in the summer or a holiday make your reservations way in advance. I have asked them in the past about making more full hookup sites and they said that the issue had to do with city limitations on the number of sewer connections per acre or something like that. We camped at North Topsail one time some years ago and loved it. The Marine base is close by and one night we could hear the howitzers firing rounds and a few seconds later the explosions. It was way off in the distance so, it wasn't loud at all but, still pretty cool. Well it seems I left one Oceanfront CG out. At the pier on Holden Beach. Small as well. And there are more CGs over toward Shallotte and Holden and Sunset beach, not on the beach, but close.

Surf City Family CG! I'm 63 years old and I remember my family camping there way back in the early 60s! Dad had a 59 Plymouth Fury II station wagon and we tent camped there. Fast forward to the late 70s, I tent camped there solo while on a vacation trip on the east coast. I checked their Facebook page, they've got some old photos posted that bring back some memories! Nothing much there, only a place to setup, and enjoy the beach

RE: Ford, GM and Chrysler cash in on posh pickups

Driven by the fashion statement crowd... Am expecting the Lambo like swing up door kits to make it big this year. A kid down the street has that setup on his Escalade and draws a crowd whenever he gets in/out... 20's are now OEM Like on one thread someone was stating that a passenger side view mirror was over a thousand bucks. Gads...it is a mirror !?! All the more potential failure points, IMHO Agree in so many ways. 20" rims, = reduced towing capacity, or they do according to the manual. And yes there a re lots of power stealing electronics that tend to quit working. While the new engines will live much longer than ever before. So many other things in the truck won't. Like the electric windows, that do not like the harsher ride of a truck at work,($250.00 each several years ago) and then there is the electronic dash. Nothing mechanical there. Want to know how much it cost to replace an instrument cluster. $700. several years ago, and you know it is way more now. Then the electric seats, and heated seats, electric rear window, power pedals, memory seats, electric mirrors. Every one of those options do at least 3 things. First they ALL take towing, and payload capacity from the truck. Second, they add thousands to the price of truck. And third. They add thousands to the upkeep of the truck. Honestly. sometimes I am afraid to start my truck, for fear of what won't come on. So far everything, except for a few door lights do, but after 11 years. the engine is great, but other things are beginning to show their age. My next truck will not be a Lariat. But an XLT, with as few electronic gismos as possible.

RE: National disgrace

Horse poop is an issue on ANY trail that allows horses and is not an "illegals" problem. It does appear to me that you were not going to enjoy a place like Big Bend. You obviously have an issue with "illegals" and visiting a place that is right on the border, that is a popular tourist stop, and that has a well-known and documented (it's right on the website) illegals issue is like visiting Disneyland when you dislike Disney. You don't have issues with illegals / criminals??? Hmmmmm! Like saying you don't have issues with murderers, pushers, prostitutes, thieves, or other criminals

RE: Dogs in Heaven

Why? He is only a man, and has no more opportunity to talk to God than you, or I. IF you are a Born Again Christian. You have a direct line to God. All you got to do is use it. This can easily turn into a religious fight. Let's respect the Pope and each other's chosen religion and let it rest. I respect the Pope as much as I do any man. We all have a open line directly to God, as does he.

RE: Ford or...?

For me it was fairly simple. Look at the older model pickups you see driving down the road, in extremely good shape. You'll see 10 Fords to 2 Chevy's and 2 Dodge's. Simple math, who do you think makes the longest lasting truck? Doesn't get much simpler. This is exactly what I was talking about. The worst reason to buy a particular model is just because someone else did. I think he was more referring to there being more Ford STILL on the road after they aged some, as opposed to LESS Dodges, and GMs. He was telling in his own unscientific survey which lasted longer.

RE: Ford or...?

Ford ? Do they make a "hefty truck "? the only one that does. c'mon now terryallen your not towing that TT in your sig with that F150. Surley you know it is way too heavy for that truck:W I won't say what I tow with cause the police would come and take me away. Well you know I do.:B I can only afford one truck. So I had to chose the best. :) And besides. that TT only weighed 4811lbs yellow sticker weight. And loaded to camp less than 6000lbs. No trouble at all for the mighty 150. the TT is built with AZDEL. 50% lighter, and 50% better insulated than regular fiberglass, and wood siding. Also won't rot. Tows great. No sway, no strain. A person could probably even tow it with a GM, or Ram. :B I tell my camping buddies that, and it really lights em up. Course they do me too. Keep saying they go up faster than me. They have 2500s, and one a diesel. I just tell them. I hang back just incase y'all need help up the hill. Fact is. I can go up faster. But why? I hold it back to 3000 RPM. I'm happy there.

RE: Ford or...?

I notice that a very large number of the people who post here tow with some sort of Ford product. I'm wondering if they are that much better than Dodge Rams or other hefty vehicles. What is it about Fords, especially the F150, that makes it so appealing? And is there a real difference between a Lariat and an XLT or whatever those letters are? Understanding that I know nothing about automotive mechanics or technology, what do you look for in a TV that so many seem to find in a Ford product? The difference between a Lariat, and a XLT , or any Ford model. Is options. The Lariat comes with more good stuff in it than a XLT. Like heated Leather memory seats, adjustable pedals, more do dads on the dash, navigation and the like. There are many variations of the 150. From a Heritage plain Jane work truck, to the King Ranch, and Platinum with stuff you will never use. At the same time. all those add ons tend to cut down on payload, and towing capacity. As for why more folks buy Fords. All I can say is personal preference. The other makers offer some comparable models. However, Fords tend to look better, have much better ergonomics. Meaning that the gages, and switches are right where they need to be. They also off more variety, or more models with more options. While some of the others just offer 2, or 3 choices of rear gear. Ford offers 4 engines, and this year even more. In short. there is a Ford truck configured for every need. From not hauling, or towing much. To towing, and hauling a whole lot.

RE: Where to dispose used motor oil?

Dump it on the manure spreader so it won't freeze this winter or spread it under the electric fence so the weeds grow up to the wire. What? That's what RoundUp is for. Eventually that oil and all its contaminants will enter the water table. OP - Just about any Walmart, Oreilly, Autozone, or Advanced Auto Parts will take it. Well, I guess I'm as good as dead, then. For many years, all the farmers around my area dumped their used engine oil on the dirt roads to help keep the dust down. Of course today that is taboo as well as illegal. Yep. Those old dirt roads had so much oil on them. They were hard as asphalt. BTW. Not saying you should. But IF you were to accidently spill some around the foundation of your house, or around the ground contact spots of your RV. It will keep the rodents out. They don't like it. Not saying you should. Just that it works. But ME. NO not me, I wouldn't do such a thing.

RE: Place in SC

James Island, a Charleston SC county park has cabins along the marsh. It is a great CG with walking trails, and is not real far from town. And as mentioned. all the Myrtle B CG offer cabin, house, or RV rental. Ocean Lakes has probably the best houses to rent, and like the others is a one stop CG. You never have to leave, unless you just want to. Also all the oceanfront CGs have indoor heated pools

RE: Have the Police stopped enforcing our traffic laws?

I do know, in this area of NC. They are still handing out "High Speed Driving Awards" / speeding tickets, on a regular basis. Don't take much to get one. I never do over 5 MPH over the limit.

RE: Weight Distribution Bars

What are weight distribution bars? I hope you are not pulling a trailer ! Jack L Probably owns a dually. On his profile he has a Truck camper. So, no. He is not pulling a TT

RE: Pounds "average family packs"

For us. The TT weighed 600lbs over the factory weight as it was WEIGHED at the end of the assembly line. What we added includes a camp stove, 10 folding chairs, one grill, sheets, & blankets for all beds, a tent, a dining fly, towels wash rags, 1 metal folding table, 2 plastic folding tables, pots, pans, silver ware, cups, some games, a hammock, and hammock stand. A folding chair carrier to roll things to the beach on, some clothes, and some food. Also leveling blocks, chocks, water hoses, and sewer hoses, and about 5 gal of water in the black tank. and 2 empty coolers. and of course gas in the tanks, and a battery. Also 2 cooler / camp stove stands, and stick biscuit cooking sticks. Plus a 20' awning matt Yep all that came to 600lbs. Honestly. there isn't room in there for any more stuff.
