RE: Vinegar and baking soda in holding tanks?

opps..meant to say we have used the ice cube method to get rid of stinky smells out of the tank, coming up through the toilet, in warm ,humid weather. Dont know if would serve your purpose but it has worked for us on more than one occasion.

RE: Vinegar and baking soda in holding tanks?

I used to make "volcanoes" with vinegar, baking soda, a plastic bottle and clay with my third graders. It was their favorite science experiment. The vinegar and baking soda would fizz and bubble up over the bottle and down the sides of the clay volcano. I do remember that we had to have the right ratio of vinegar and baking soda to make a successful volcano but it was all trial and error on their part. No matter how many times we did it the whole class would go..."ahhhhhhh ohhhhhh".... it was really so cute.

RE: Long Key SP, Florida

Thanks for info. Yes we do kayak and canoe. We live on a pond and we both have kayaks and my husband has a one person canoe. We cant bring them with us because of space issues but we do rent at different places. We rented Kayaks at Long Key and Anastasia one time and really enjoyed it.

RE: Long Key SP, Florida

We love Long Key. We have stayed there in the past and will be there again next month. Nothing can beat a site right on the ocean. As much as we love Bahia Honda and John PennyCamp and Curry Hammock,,, Long Key would always be my first choice.Actually we love all the Florida state parks we have stayed at. I think they are just the best places to stay.We have also stayed at Anastasia, Talbot Island, Fort Clinch, Gamble Rogers, Jonathan Dickerson Stephan Foster and St Joes. Next month we will visit Oscar Scherer and Collier Seminole for the first time.

RE: Maine

We have been traveling around Maine for years well before our Rv days. One of our favorite RV trips is to Scarborough ME. We stay at Wild Duck Rv Resort. It is on the marsh and is adults only. The owner Chris is awesome. It is quiet, clean and well cared.

RE: What are you reading?

Bryson, Bill. "A Walk In The Woods: Rediscovering America On The Appalachian Trail". By page 100, I was, like, "I can't believe this book hasn't been made into a movie". It is absolutely hilarious. In my head, I had already cast Hugh Grant, Zach Galifianakis & Janeane Garofalo. Since then, I've learned it WAS made into a movie with Robert Redford & Nick Nolte. I guess I just don't get out much! Walk in the Woods was my first Bryson book. I LOVE his books. I have read many of them. You might like Notes from a Small Island. He married a woman from England and lived there for about 18 years. Then they moved back to US for a while and he wrote I'm a Stranger Here Myself about adjusting to life in US after living in England. I believe they are back in England again. He did a backpacking tour of Europe in his 20's and wrote Neither Here Nor There.and just this past year or so did the journey again and wrote about it in another book The Road to Little Dribbling. I also love One Summer American 1927. It was all about Charles Lindberg , Babe Ruth, Al Capone, Calvin Coolidge and the lead up to the Depression and lots of other events that took place that year. I never realized that Lindberg was such a star and hero of those times. I think the best Bryson thought is A Short History of Nearly Everything. He writes about everything.... just everything.It was fascinating as all get out. Another one I loved is At Home..A Short History of Private Life. He walks around his house from room to room and writes all about houses and things to do with house and how people lived and used houses. As you might be able to tell I am a huge fan of Bryson.

RE: What are you reading?

An Infamous Army by Georgette Heyer. Takes place before and during the Battle of Waterloo My Dad was enthralled when we visited the site at Waterloo & announced he was climbing to the top of the monument. I was, like, "Uh, no, no, Dad... I think I'll just wait for you down here!" I'd like to read the book. I'll check my online library. They have a lot of Georgette Heyer but not necessarily the ones you've read. BTW, I saw an episode of "Cops" set in Lynn, Ma & thought of you guys. See? I don't always have my nose in a book? /CC My husband is a retired lynn police sergeant. I was just looking at a pic in out local paper and in it was one of my former 5th graders. He was one of the best kids ever. Even then he wanted to be a policeman. I have read a lot of history but knew really nothing about Napolean or the wars. It was a fascinating description with tons of details. Some sort of confusing but I looked at teh clock last night and it was 2:30AM and I didn't want to stop reading it. In the bio of Heyer there is a lot about the time and research she put into this book and the battle. It also said that her description of the battles and movements of troops was studied at West Point for years.

RE: Favourite Christmas music...

John Denver and the Muppets...especially The Peace Song. As a teacher(now retired) I used to play this every year for my 5th graders. When I would first start to play it they would laugh and snicker and give me looks like..."Is she ok?" Then after listening to it a few times they would start asking me to play it. Many of them would end up telling me how much they liked listening to it. A lot of the time they would end up singing the songs softly as we listened.

RE: Florida beaches in February

Except for August or September or October( and these are far and few) the only way I have been able to get into Bahia Honda is through checking and rechecking the website for cancelations.....checking and rechecking all times of the day and night at least 10-15 times a day....as a night owl getting up before 8:00 to sit at 3 computers tapping away at the keyboard is never going to happen. One time I asked a Ranger there if she had any secret tips as I already knew about the 8:00 am 3 computer thing 11 months ahead and she said....you have to be online at 8:00am with 3 computers, know what site you want and just start tapping away....and also remember that you are competing with people from all over the world who also want to stay at Bahia Honda. We are booked at J Pennycamp, Long Key from 1/17-1/28 moving backhand forth and from site to site through my constant and I mean constant checking.....I have been trying for about 4 months to get a cancelation at Bahia Honda and have found nothing...not even one night.....but I will keep checking....but I am not holding out much hope....last February when we were traveling around the The Keys a last minute cancelation appeared in a waterfront site in BH... I wanted to grab it and go back there but my husband wanted to head north to get home...it was a DUMB move....but I couldn't get him to do it....dont think that opportunity will come up again:(

RE: What are you reading?

finished Firestorm by Nevada Barr. Not bad about firefighters in a huge forest fire and murder. I love her books. It so interesting to learn about all the NP she works in. The only one I couldn't read was the one she goes down into a cave. Too claustrophobic for me. One of my favorites buy her is the one that takes place on Isle Royale about the wolves.

RE: Christmas Gift Ideas for the ladies

How about a nice recliner style outdoor chair to relax in? Maybe one that is padded??? We use ours all the time. The other handy dandy item is one of those fold up director style chairs that folds and fits into a bag. We keep them in the back of the truck so when we go to the beach we always have a chair with us. The bag has a carrying strap to put over ones shoulder.
