Jellystone/Lazy River In Gardiner NY

Heading up there over the summer and looking for activities outside the park for various age ranges. 1) Middle aged active couples with no kids. 2) Middle aged couples with kids ranging from 7-10 years old 3) Grandparents who can't get around all that much. For the active folks we might do Mohonk and the Wallkill rail trail. What else is there to do in the area?

RE: Broken Bathroom Vent Screen

Do they look something like this? https://s19.postimg.org/new8gzfqb/049793057679lg.jpg width=400 If so you can get them at any hardware store. No, they are molded into the plastic frame.

Broken Bathroom Vent Screen

We've got the basic bathroom vent fan in our TT. I went to take down the screen to clean it and almost all of the little plastic clips broke off when I went to push them back to take the screen down. What are my options for replacing them?

RE: Beach Camping

I never mentioned I wanted to dump gray on the beach. If I wanted to do that then why would I even ask about dumping gray in the first place? Use your head guys. Anyway, there are dump stations in the parking lots of these beach campgrounds but some sites are a considerable distance from the dump stations so I need a way to transport the gray across the sand. Some ideas I came up with are... 1) Use the 35 gallon tote we normally use for regular campgrounds. Only issue is that we wouldn't be able to get the truck close to the sewer line on the camper and wouldn't be able to pull the tote across the sand to the truck. We'd have to fill the tote and then tie a rope between the tote and truck in order to pull it out into the open where we'd undo the rope and then attach the tote to the ball as we normally would and tow it to the dump station. This works but I'm afraid of damage to the tote once we hit some deep ruts left in the sand by previous vehicles. It can get pretty bouncy. 2) Pretty much the same as option 1 but make some kind of flat bottom sled to put under the tote while towing it across the sand so that it doesn't dig into the sand while towing. In essence, the tote would kind of be floating on top of the sand. 3) Keep the tote in the bed of the truck and get a macerator pump to pump the gray into the tote on the truck. Then drive to the dump station and empty the gray from the bed of the truck with a long stinky slinky. Are there any other ideas? I kind of like option 3 but I don't know how loud a macerator pump is and how quickly it would pump 35 gallons of gray water. The run would probably be about 15' across the sand and then up into the bed of the truck.

Beach Camping

Looking to do more beach camping in the coming years. We’ve got a 35 gallon thetford tote to dump gray at a typical campground without a sewer but what are my options for dumping gray while on the beach?

Campgrounds Near Hershey

My niece will be in a dance competition at Hershey next July so we are looking for campgrounds in the area. They'll be staying at a hotel in Hershey but we have the freedom to camp further away since we'll probably only watch her perform only one day so we don't have to be THAT close to Hershey. I'm thinking up to about an hour away would be good. A bonus would be if it were EAST of Hershey but it doesn't have to be. We'll have 3 campers and must have water, electric and sewer with activities in and around the campground for 10 year old boys and adults. Must also be dog friendly. Here's what I found so far. Drummer Boy Campground Adventure Bound Oak Creek Anything else I can look at?

RE: Campgrounds 3-4 Hours From NYC?

Pet friendly camping cabins might be tough to find... not aware of any. Mike Recently got back from Normandy Farms and my sister was able to bring her dog to the cabin. Frontier Town in Maryland also has pet friendly cabins and that's a place that looks like it may fit the bill for us.

RE: Campgrounds 3-4 Hours From NYC?

You are an optimist on the hour and half. Hour and a half on the Cross Bronx sometimes. But a little over 4 hours from GWB is Turning Stone Casino AND RESORT Exit 33 NYS Thruway. Closer in is the Delaware water GAp at the west end of NJ I80 https://www.nps.gov/dewa/planyourvisit/developed-campgrounds.htm Do not know about cabins Haha, we always leave home by 5am for trips like this and usually are OK.

Campgrounds 3-4 Hours From NYC?

We are on Long Island and looking for a campground about 3-4 hours away from NYC for next summer. We have 3 campers but also need a cabin rental that is pet friendly. Campsite and cabin must have water, electric and sewer. Campsite and cabin must be dog friendly. Must be a variety of activities for kids and adults in and around the campground. There are 4 boys age 8-11 who love sports. Also 2 couples around 40 who don't have kids as well as grandparents who would enjoy a night at a casino but the casino isn't a dealbreaker. We've been to Lake George RV Park and Normandy Farms and these sure fit the bill. We'll probably go back to both of these parks but want to try somewhere else first so we're looking for ideas. I'd love to go south or west of NYC but that's not a dealbreaker. I'm also open to expanding my 3-4 hour radius but not by too much since it takes an hour and a half just to get away from NYC.

RE: Normandy Farms Activities?

We got back from Normandy Farms a few days ago and it was great. The park was immaculate and there was plenty for my niece and nephews to do all day long. One of the best days was actually last Monday. It was an open practice for the Patriots so we watched that for a bit. That was pretty cool even though we are NY fans. Then they had free prizes when spinning a wheel. There were also active events for the kids. They had a section where kids could kick field goals and throw footballs through hanging car tires. Then they had a section where the kids ran through dummies before diving onto a mat to catch a football. It was awesome and the entire thing was free for all of us. Very cool day for them. My brother took his family to Boston one day and I went to Cape Cod and had THE best NE clam chowder I've ever had. It was a great trip for everyone. My only complaints were that the roads were gravel which made bike riding a little difficult for the kids. One of them actually took a nasty spill. Also a lot of the sites are in direct sunlight so you didn't want to sit outside all that much when relaxing. We found ourselves inside the camper with AC for that. Other than that, it was awesome.

RE: Normandy Farms Activities?

Do we stand any chance of getting a signal with my HD DirecTV dish or should I leave it at home? Most sites are pretty open to the sky, but, there is cable at most sites as well. Do you like hiking? Lots of great hiking in the area. I do but I don't think anyone else who is going would join me.

Buying Recreational Land Near NYC

I live on Long Island and love it but it's expensive and congested. I pay close to $9,000 a year on about 10,000 square feet of property. It's crazy. My girlfriend grew up hunting and fishing and loves the outdoors. Her dad even leases land somewhere north of NYC to go hunting and he's got a rustic camper there. He's getting older and this might be the last year he leases it. I was just curious to see if there were suggestions on what areas and what websites should I look at? I'd like to put a camper or have there be some sort of smaller cabin there. There should also be places to hunt, fish and quad on or near the property. I'm clueless about where to start. Any ideas?

RE: Normandy Farms Activities?

When we were there years ago they had a camp host that ran a tour bus to Boston and all the sights Old Iron sides etc. I think she's being restored right now and isn't open to the public. :-(

2013 Ram 1500 5.7 Oil Filter

I finally got around to doing my own oil change on my truck but I had a question about the oil filter. I accessed it from the passenger side wheel well with the tire still on. Is that the proper location to do it from or can you get it from below? My jackstands kind of prevented me from getting under there and it was getting dark with skeeters coming out so I didn't want to fudge with it too much. If this is the proper way then I assume removing the tire would help too.

Thanks for the info everyone! I just checked and we'll be there the week of one of the car shows so that's something I'd love to do!

RE: New Tires For Tow Vehicle...

So I started towing with the new tires at 40 back in April. Every trip I up them another 5 and I'm currently at 60 and it finally feels good again. I doesn't feel as good as the stock P tires but it definitely feels a LOT better than my initial tows with the new ones.

RE: Normandy Farms Activities?

Thanks. We'll have plenty of vehicles. 2 pickups with two campers and 2 cars for everyone else. We already have 2 camper spots and one cabin booked for a week in August.

Normandy Farms Activities?

We are taking a big family vacation there this summer and are looking for area activities. We want to do some things together but we don't want to have to do EVERYTHING together. :-) It will be my parents who are late 60's and in fact my Dad will be turning 70 while we are there so we'd like to do something in the area to celebrate. 5 adults in their late 30's-mid 40's. A 14 year old girl and 4 boys who are 7,8,9 and 10.
