RE: safe layovers YoungstownOH to Toledo OH

See, this is why I love this site. Never even thought of rest areas. although I don't need hookups, this sounds perfect for what we need. We can stop later and fill up our supplies when we get closer to Gaylord. TomN thanks for the link awesome. Thanks Vic If you do not need hookups you can park outside the RV hookup area for free. Ohio turnpike is now almost all 6 lanes and tolls are reasonable.

RE: safe layovers YoungstownOH to Toledo OH

When you get you ticket when entering the OH turnpike ask for their rest areas RV brochure. As DrewE stated the rest areas are great. Ohio Turnpike rest area brochure. -Tom, W3TLN

RE: Rattlesnakes can climb trees? (long)

Tom, according to the Ranger at Hovenweep, it was a faded midget rattlesnake. . It is apparently a cousin of the Mojave, but just a little less toxic. I googled "faded midget rattlesnake". Never too old to learn. Thanks.

RE: Rattlesnakes can climb trees? (long)

What you encountered was probably a Mojave rattlesnake. The Mojave rattlesnake has highly potent venom. The most common subspecies of Mojave rattlesnake (type A) has a neurotoxic venom that is considered to be the most debilitating and potentially deadly of all rattlesnakes, and even several elapids. However, chances for survival are very good if medical attention is sought as soon as possible after a bite. source wikipedia The southeast's pigmy rattlesnake is much, much less dangerous. Since this species is unable to produce much venom, it is unlikely that it is able to deliver a fatal bite to a human adult. Brimley (1942) wrote that although it was too small to be really dangerous, its bite "will give the victim quite an unpleasant time for several days. However, bites involving children have resulted in prolonged hospitalization and there are also reports of necrosis. source wikipedia

RE: GPS Routing question

In MS S&T save your trip as a GPX file. For old Garmins use Garmin's MapSource software to load that .GPX file in to your Garmin GPS. For new Garmins us Garmin Ecpress. Mapsource Garmin Express

RE: COE Cg charging $20 to dump

Know Before You Go Park attendants are on duty Cruiser sites are for boats that accommodate sleeping only Vehicles or trailers are not allowed on tent sites This campground has first-come, first-served sites Group Shelter is for day use only, no camping allowed Arriving campers that require the use of the trailer dump station prior to occupying their campsite will be charged the $20.00 use fee as the waste being dumped was not generated on site Source: ST LUCIE SOUTH, FL Makes sense to me.

RE: 2005 Winni Adventurer Chassis Differences

Hopefully, the Adventurer 37B is built on the option Workhorse W24 24,000# chassis, which IMHO the 37B needs.

RE: How long do you run your batteries?

Too much of the equation determining effective battery life is based on their "care and feeding" that there really is no standard rule. True and I'll add, "Batteries are like tires, you take care of them and they'll take care of you." -Tom, W3TLN

RE: Workhorse vs. Triton Engines

The Workhorse chassis did get a bit of a black eye with brake caliber problems that were fixed with a recall. There could still be a few rigs in the world that the recall was not performed on. Just something to be aware of. As a point of reference only the Workhorse W20-W22 had the brake recall. The Workhorse W24 has a completely different and much larger brake system and this system has been trouble free. IMHO, the W24 is the preferred Workhorse gas chassis and easily carries my 23,200# 39' motorhome anywhere. The Allison 2100MH transmission is a MAJOR plus for the W24. The 2100MH is used in some diesel engined chassis'. -Tom, W3TLN

RE: Anybody camped near Summit Bechtel Reserve (BSA camp) in WV?

I've stayed at the new Walmart in Fayetteville on US route 19 about 20 miles from the scout camp. Huge parking lot. The campgrounds are not open this time of year. Later in the year you can stay at one of the white water rafting campgrounds. There are many.

RE: Annual Spring Purchase

I have a telescoping ladder. Be very careful closing the telescoping ladder. I have one and that thing can easily smash a finger. Last year I bought one of these. http://www.ladder-guy.com/ladders/images/183/GPL+D7+Opening.jpg/
