RE: Knoebel's & Surrounding Area.....

I was more interested in the chocolate making part of Hershey due to the desire for the other amusement parks Knoebels and Dutch Wonderland. Any idea how long the chocolate making part of Hershey might take? Lake Glory is somewhat midway between Hershey/Dutch Wonderland and Pocono Raceway. What else is in the area? When we went to Lake George RV Park this past summer we went to Howe Cavarans. We'd be looking at that kind of attraction and perhaps a little fishing too.

RE: Cold Weather Camping Tips?

Thanks for the tips so for guys, I appreciate it and like the ideas. I'm not really too concerned about anything freezing when camping, my main concern was keeping the waste tanks and sewer line clean with a very limited fresh water supply.

Cold Weather Camping Tips?

They turn the water off at the campgrounds around here on November 1 and we've never camped after Halloween. This year we'd like to plan a guys weekend trip in November but we just have some concerns and questions. Sure, we can fill up with water at home before leaving but what's the best way to handle dumping and cleaning your tanks when there is no water at the park? Do we just do #1 in the camper toilet and get a portable toilet for #2? Do we just buy a cheap sewer hose for dumping and throw it away after our trip since we can't clean it as well as we normally would? Any other tips of suggestions?

Knoebel's & Surrounding Area.....

We are trying to plan next summer's trip and I have an idea I wanted to run by everyone. My parents have a camper and they are mid 60's and I usually sleep on the air mattress if I go with them. My brother and sister-in-law are 40 and have a camper with two boys 7 & 5. All of us would go together in the campers. My sister and brother-in-law are 43 with a girl 11 and boys 6 & 4. They do not have a camper so if they vacation with us they'd need a rental cabin or similar. I was looking at Lake Glory campground with the full hookups as it's part of Knoebel's. My idea is to go in early August since NASCAR is in Pocono which looks to be jut over an hour from the campground. Herhsey Park looks to be about 80 minutes from the campground and Dutch Wonderland looks to be just under 2 hours from the campground. There's also Knoebel's itself. Does it seem feasible to hit all of this in one week? Is there anything else I should look at in the area?

RE: Was I Wrong? (Long Story)

My opinion is dogs should be banned from ALL campgrounds. Reason is situations that develop such as stated here. http://popbytes.com/img/UGLIEST-DOG-IN-BRITAIN-01.jpg Don't blame the dog for the handler not being able to control the situation!!! OK, I should have stated "ban all PEOPLE with dogs". -Tom I say ban all people wanting to ban all people with dogs :) lol How bout we just ban the dog in this picture?

RE: Was I Wrong? (Long Story)

I don't know who is wrong and who is right, but I am reading this and chuckling to myself. All this time I thought it was us non dog owners who got upset with you dog owners letting your dogs do their business in front of our camp sites. I never realized that you doggie owners get ticked off at each other. Kind of just made my day !!! Jack L Trust me, that's something that was puzzling to me as well. If it was just some guy without a dog complaining then I MIGHT be able to understand a bit more but when you yourself have a dog and are using the same large communal area as I am then what's the problem? I wasn't looking for a "you can't fix stupid" comment from everyone. I'm looking for advice and suggestions from fellow RV'ers.

RE: Was I Wrong? (Long Story)

I believe you are younger than many of us on here and also relatively new at RVing. For some reason you appear to have the need to prove yourself in the right and get the endorsement of others on the forum. Here is what I would have done based on years of life experience. Ignore the fool. I don't carry on loud conversations after dark from long distances. I would not have replied in the first place. If the fool chose to escalate the situation and approach me things would have changed. At that point he would be an aggressor and I would respond appropriately. If he became threatening my response would probably be to his detriment. You escalated the situation by responding and arguing. In the right or not, you escalated the situation. I know, you're young. You should have ignored him and let him think what he wants. It is not your job to educate the fools of this world and you will find it an impossible task anyhow. ...if I just walked away then I would have just been pissed at myself for bowing down to the jerk. I pick and choose my battles and this was one I selected. Then you need to grow up. Yes, I probably am younger than most members here but I came here looking for advice and suggestions. I did not come on here to bash the individual or say "Hey everyone, look at what I did to this guy!" I truly and genuinely came here looking for advice because even though it was a minor altercation a few days ago, it's still bothering me. It would also have bothered me MORE if I had walked away. I did not yell, raise my voice, walk up to him or do anything but mind my own business and state the facts in a normal speaking volume. Also, after the second time he said something to me I did ignore him and turned my back. It's at that point that he picked up the dog and approached me from behind as I had my back to him and was looking at my dog. He came up because I wasn't responding and even said so. Sure, I could have just walked away but my dog had to pee as well and I was tired and going to bed as soon as we got back. Normally I would have walked away but this guy just rubbed me the wrong way.

RE: Was I Wrong? (Long Story)

cm, you were not wrong. if ya read my post, HE started the confrontation. point blank by annoying tone, calling out to you and then coming to you to take this further. HE could have turned back and trained pup in another direction. so more him than you.....but you are not totally off the hook, cause if the initial tone got YOU mad and the fur on the back of your neck up----YOU then have the upper hand. Leave the situation and NOTHING would have happened after that. not one of us on this planet wants to back down :) but the whole situation in general was stupid to be taken that far by BOTH of you. he started it, sure, you could have ended it SO FAST. but you took a different road. now you live with the consequences of your actions to someone else's. it was not life or death. protecting your family. not a real dire confrontation. pick your battles and this one didn't have to come this far at all. did he do wrong. absolutely, but sometimes ya gotta give people a break for being a pain in the azz and stupidity :) True, but if I just walked away then I would have just been pissed at myself for bowing down to the jerk. I pick and choose my battles and this was one I selected. :-)

RE: Was I Wrong? (Long Story)

If it was as you stated the only real way to deal with people like that is to just ignore them. Easier said then done. But based on their demeanor probably not much more you could have done other then calling the park or host to resolve it. Trust me, I'm not a confrontational guy at all and I tend to avoid these types of situations, that's why I stayed away from the guy at the other end of the doggy section. When you yell at me and accuse me of doing something wrong that I'm NOT doing wrong, all with an annoyed tone then there's going to be a problem. The story I presented is just about the way it went down, word for word. I was walking my dog peacefully and trying to maintain my distance about as far away as possible in the doggy section but that wasn't good enough for him and he wanted me to move and asked in an annoyed tone. Why did I have to go somewhere else? Why couldn't he pick up his pup and go somewhere else? He was the one with the loud tone, he's the one that walked up to my face from 150' away and he's the one who ventured into our site, to our picnic table and threatened to bring his other dog there. I was simply standing up for myself and stating the facts in a cool manner for the most part. I never yelled, I never cursed, I never threatened him and I never violated his space or site.

RE: Was I Wrong? (Long Story)

i'm sure from the picture you paint of your actions, you are totally innocent sounds like the big bad man just blew up on you for no reason...................:( would be quite interested to hear the other side of the story :@ Sure, there are always two sides but I'm trying to be as objective as possible. Perhaps he was annoyed by the sounds of my 6 and 5 year old nephews riding their bikes, playing cornhole or riding their scooters. You know, all those horrible things that kids do at a VERY kid friendly campground. lol

RE: Was I Wrong? (Long Story)

For what it's worth, he wasn't yelling with a red face on. He was talking loudly when we were far apart and was still talking loudly, just not AS loud when he got closer.

RE: Was I Wrong? (Long Story)

My opinion, I wouldn't have argued with the moron at all, I'd have just contacted CG management, especially when he comes to my site. Calling would have been the next step and I was just about to do that. Sometimes you just have to state your case first.

Was I Wrong? (Long Story)

We just got back from a wonderful week of camping and had one slight altercation with a neighbor. I'm curious to see what others might have to say. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e191/yourbasicdj/E71532A6-7B73-47ED-9B4F-04789F6A22C9-2371-000002872FD40D0C_zps92a61492.jpg height=600 This pic was taken from our site and as you might be able to tell, the campground road goes from left to right before it makes a 90 degree turn to the left. The girl on the bike is on the road and about to go past the picnic table, fire pit, tree and small shrubs before hitting the 90 degree right hand turn and come past our site. There is a vacant site on the inside part of the turn as you can see and that's who we had a problem with. I took the picture after they left. It was a couple in their late 50's, early 60's with 2 small dogs. All week long they would walk their dogs either on the vacant sites next to them, using them as a doggy latrine or across the street where you can see the woods in my picture. We would walk our dogs in the wooded section behind the girl on the bike as instructed by the campground, much like the couple did when they didn't use vacant sites as a latrine. For 3 or 4 days there was never a problem. Everyone went about their camping trips peacefully and enjoyably. My family had two campers there and luckily we had sites next to each other. Everything was going great! One night at about 11pm I take one of our dogs to that grassy/woody section. I'm standing at about where that bike is but I'm actually behind the bike, on the grassy/woody area. I see the guy I mentioned above about 150' away from me down the road to the left behind some trees and bushes and I hear him saying things to his dog. The doggy area is about 150' long and about 10' deep as there is a chain link fence to prevent things from getting in and out of the park. I keep my distance and don't venture closer. We were basically at opposite ends of the 150' long doggy area. The dog I had at the time does his business as soon as I bring him to that area so I start and end the dog walk in under 2 minutes. I go back to the camper and bring our second dog to the same area and I can still see the guy in the same area down the road and still talking to his dog. Again, we are at opposite ends of the doggy area. I'm minding my own business and staying just about as far away as possible in the area where we were supposed to bring dogs. All of a sudden I hear a voice down the road from the guy walking his dog down the road. It was not a pleasant tone and it was not an angry tone but it was kind of an annoyed tone. It's after 11pm and he's yelling. "Um, can you go walk your dog somewhere else? I'm trying to train a 3 month old puppy over here and your dogs keep distracting her." My dogs weren't barking, they weren't growling, they weren't doing anything other than sniffing and peeing in the designated doggy area just about as far away from this guy as possible. We have two dogs and I walk them separately and it takes less than 5 minutes from the time I grab the first leash to the time I'm hanging up the second leash. So I answer back, "I'm just trying to walk my dogs just like you are." He comes back with, "I know, but can't you just walk your dogs over on your site or somewhere else because I have a 3 month old puppy I'm training. Can you show some courtesy!?" All the time in an annoyed tone and yelling at 11pm. So I reply with, "Dude, I'm just trying to walk my dog just like you are in the designated area instructed by the campground. That's all I'm doing." He then says something else about my manners and tells me to walk my dog somewhere else. I say "OK, I will" but I don't move. At this point he picks up his dog and walks over to my face complaining about how I'm not listening and how I'm not being courteous. He tells me that I've been bringing my dogs over to his site all week to pee and poop. He was claiming that the other side of the road was his site too and I respond that no, I'm not bringing my dogs over to his site because HIS site is on the other side of the road with his camper, picnic table and fire pit and that I'm bringing my dog over to the designated doggy area as instructed by the campground as was everyone else in our loop. We always clean up after our dogs too so it's not like we left anything in the wooded area. At this point he walks past me and he begins to walk right to my dad's site 30' away and says that he's going to bring both his dogs over to our site so they can relieve themselves by our picnic table. He even threatened to go get his BIGGER dog which was still only 20 lbs. :-) I followed him that short distance and just as he got to my parents picnic table my brother heard the commotion and walked out of his camper at the next site. I call my brother's name and say, "Do you mind giving me a hand over here? This gentleman just threatened to bring both his dogs over to Dad's site and have them poop and pee all over. My brother and him basically have the same conversation that I had with him, (keep in mind that he is currently on our site standing next to our picnic table), when a few seconds later my Dad comes out from his camper right there and asks what is going on. At this point the guy leaves and says something about how he is so happy he is packing up and leaving tomorrow and that it wasn't anything worth arguing about. We all went to bed after that and he was gone 12 hours later. So what is your opinion on all of this? I wasn't doing anything other than simply walking my dogs in the designated doggy area and keeping my distance from him and his dog the whole time.

RE: Camping Suggestion About 4 Hours From NYC?

Did you get a picture with Toasty?! We just got back from LGRVP last night; went up for a few days. We went to Strawberry Park a couple of times years ago when the kids were young. It's a nice park if you're looking to keep the kids busy. Keep in mind though, that you have been spoiled now at LGRVP. LOL, no pictures with Toasty but I did buy a mini toasty figure for each camper. Where were you staying? We were in the 400's.

Camping Suggestion About 4 Hours From NYC?

We live on Long Island and have had a camper for about 3 years now. We've only camped on Long Island in that time span but have just finished up a week at Lake George RV Park and it was great. We are already planning to start looking for our big trip for next summer and are looking for suggestions. 1) campground should be less than 4 hours from NYC. 2) campsite should have water, electric and sewer sites 3) must allow dogs The trip will be in July of 2015 with two 28' trailers. It will consist of my parents who are mid to late 60's. My brother and sister in law in early 40's and their two boys aged 7 and 5. It will also be myself age 35. We've briefly looked at strawberry park and odetah online. Any other suggestions maybe west or south of NYC?

RE: Lake George Water Drops??

Take a look at the leaves on the trees above you. Don't you notice all of those holes that have been chewed through them? It's worm and caterpillar pee. Bruce Wow, those worms and caterpillars have an uncanny knack of turning all the leaves into sharp, pointy needles! :-)

RE: Lake George Water Drops??

Out here we call that a rain forest, humidly condensing in the trees and falling as water. It evaporates almost as fast as it condenses. and the cycle continues. Read about "Dew Point" the air temp in the canopy of the trees is lower than where you are setting so it can not hold as much water as where you are setting in the sun. Sounds plausible. A few minutes ago I was staring at my arm when I felt a drop where I happened to be looking at my arm. I saw a tiny drop of water on my arm but it was gone in a second or two.

RE: Lake George Water Drops??

Well, now that the sun is at a different angle I can see the drops. It almost looks like it's drizzling in some areas but it's a beautiful, clear day here today.

Lake George Water Drops??

We're at Lake George RV Park under some trees. Every so often it feels like water drops on our arms and faces but when we look at our arms they are completely dry? We've all experienced this. It hasn't rained and it's a fairly cloudless sky. Like I said, we are completely dry afterwards. What could it be?
