RE: What are you reading?

Venetia by Georgette Heyer love these Regency books. They are much more than romance novels. I am learning so much about the Regency period in England, history of the 1700's, values, morals and especially the plight of women of that time.

RE: Colorado residents don't want tourists anymore

Thank you for info about the Front Range. Both my husband and I have a strong interest in the geology of the Earth. It is a fascinating subject and we enjoy visiting places and learning about how they came to be on this earth.

RE: Colorado residents don't want tourists anymore

I have only been to Colorado once and I never heard the description Front Range. Can someone tell me what that means? It seems like it is a certain area of Colorado?????????

RE: What are you reading?

The Corinthian by Georgette Heyer. I am not a romance reader anymore. I went through that phase in my early 20's which was 40 years ago. But I did just discover her mysteries a few months back. I didn't know she wrote mysteries. I thoroughly enjoyed them. After reading the book about Regency life by Jane Ridley I downloaded this Regency romance last night. It's not a romance in the usual sense. It is a refection of the beliefs, morals and values of the Regency period with some adventure and romance mixed in. I have read much about the history of the 1700 and 1800s in England and am a huge Jane Austin fan so I am really enjoying this book.

RE: rain

You lucked out:) Here on the North Shore we did get rain but it was just a few hours of drizzle if that. The sun came out around noon and canceled out any good the tidbit of rain we got. And no rain predicted until Saturday and then full sun for Sunday to Thursday next week. It all just seems so unnatural to me.

RE: Key West

Check out the Florida State Parks campgrounds. They are the best in the state.

RE: What are your rules for the awning?

We only used the awning a few times as my husband didnt want to deal with it. A few years back while parked in our north facing back yard somehow a severe wind and rain storm broke some part of the awning. We had it taken off and never replaced it. I wish we had as we could have used it on hot sunny day during our travels to keep the camper cooler.

RE: What are your rules for the awning?

I only turn the water heater on when it is needed and shut off when done. It takes but a few minutes to heat up. IMHO don't see a need to listen and smell the exhaust from the hot water heater propane going on and off when you don't need it. We also only use the water heater as needed. It does heat up very quickly when we need it.

RE: What are your rules for the awning?

When we leave...close the awning and shut off the water at the spigot. Thank goodness! I'm not the only one to shut off the water. I thought I was a paranoid delusional. Well, I'm probably still a paranoid delusional, but at least there is more than one of me. We also shut off the water anytime we leave the campground.

RE: Driving - Day or Night

We try to only travel during the day. We have arrived a few times to campgrounds in the dark and did not like it. We like to set up when its light and then go for a bike ride or swim or enjoy a glass of wine, dinner and a fire if possible.

RE: rain

We are so desperate for rain here in Massachusetts. I don't ever remember a time like this with so little rain. I live on a pond and the water level has never ever been as low and I have lived here for almost 40 years. The little bit of rain we have received has lasted maybe 5 minutes of less. Everyones lawns are brown.The local reservoir keeps getting lower and lower. Many of the local smaller towns have started mandatory water bans and my city of about 90,000 people has asked people for voluntary conservation water usage. I keep thinking about the summer of 2007 and we were doing a trolly tour in Santa Fe NM and the tour guide telling us they were in there 14th year of drought. We are supposed to get rain tomorrow but if anything like its been so far it will rain for a few minutes and then the sun will come out and blaze the rest of the day. I am one of those weird people that actually likes rainy days:)

RE: What are you reading?

I just finished " Sully". It gave a good background of the man. It was rather dry, but I wanted to read it no matter what. I wanted to know what kind of man could be so calm in such a situation. Found out his whole crew was that way, including the air traffic controller he was talking to. He was and still is a true American hero in my opinion.

RE: Colorado residents don't want tourists anymore

It makes me sad (: to think that some people in some states don't want tourism in their state. We are all citizens of one country...USA. We have traveled all over this country since 2007 in our RV plus years and years of car travel, air travel and cruises and only met friendly welcoming people no matter where we have visited. In Massachusetts we are a big tourist destination which includes Boston, Salem, Plymouth ,Concord and Lexington, Cape Cod and the islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket,the Berkshires and many places in between full of American history. When we meet people in our travels and they say that they visited Boston and loved it and the area I feel proud. I feel so lucky that I have had the opportunity to visit so many states in this country including Hawaii and Alaska. There is so much history going back to the original peoples who crossed the Bering land bridge and spread out through the Americas and developed in to the hundreds of native cultures and the history of the Puritans who settled Boston, the fight for freedom to be able to become our own country and the all the many immigrant groups who arrived over the the last 200 plus years groups who came and settled across the country. And of course the so many spectacular places i.e.: Grand Tetons, Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon, Glacier NP, Rocky Mts, the Great Plains, Great Lakes, mountains and glaciers of Alaska, Hana Rd and the almost speechless beauty of the Hawaiian beaches and rain forests and lava fields and the wild Maine coast, NH White Mts., all along the eastern seaboard with beautiful beaches in Virginia,the Carolinas and Georgia, the Appalachian Mts and and of course my favorite ride...the Overseas Highway leading to the my favorite place.. The Florida Keys. My life has been so enriched by our travels.As much as we have seen and experienced there are still so many more places to go and more interesting people to meet. Sorry I kind of got off topic:)

RE: Cruiser RV Fun Finder reviews

Hello, In 2006 we bought out first RV, to try camping and to fulfill our plans of seeing the country on the road. As of 2016 we still love it. Its a 2007 FunFinder X 21 ft. No slide out. My husband did not want anything made with what he calls OSB. Wood chips or something glued together. We also wanted an "island" full size queen bed. And we also wanted to start with something small that our 2003 Tundra could pull (we now tow with a 2010 Tundra). After hours and hours of research on my part I found the FunFinder. We went to Campers Inn in NH and saw one. It felt right for both of us as soon as we stepped inside. It is only the 2 of us so it works.I knew nothing about Rvs so its been quite a learning experience. We have so many memories made with our Funfinder these past 9 years that we both find it hard to think about trading it in. We have had our share of issues over the years but from reading this forum none seemed like anything that others have not experienced with trailers in the same price category. We had water leakage in the front,replaced the air conditioner, the bench separated from the wall, the wall separated from the floor, a leak under the sink, and faded and peeling decals. Campers Inn has done most of the repairs except for the ones needed to be done on the road. But on the other hand we have taken it from Massachusetts all over the NE states hundreds of times. We have traveled out west to the Rockies, Montana , Wyoming, the Dakotas, Arizona, New Mexico, California, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Texas and all the midwest states in-between 4 times and into Canada.We have gone to Florida many many times staying all along the eastern seaboard, New Jersey, Rhode Island Maryland, Delaware, both Carolinas, Virginia Beach,Georgia, Appalachian MT and into Canada. It has literally traveled thousands and thousands and thousands of miles. I am a retired teacher and my husband retired from the police force 15 years ago so before I retired (2014) we took off every summer, weekends and school vacation weeks. Last February we experimented with a month in Florida as snowbirds. We talk a lot about upgrading now that I am retired. We are getting older and maybe we could use a little more room. And we have a 3 year old grandson that we would like to eventually take with us. But then we think that we spend most of our time sightseeing , doing outdoor activities and sitting at night by a campfire. We don't spend a lot of time inside the camper.We don't have a TV to watch.We do most of our cooking outside. But even though it is showing some wear and tear from all of our travels we still feel it was the right choice for us. We have also toured the then Cruiser RV factory in Indiana and stopped in another time to get a replacement for the microwave plate that fell out of the microwave and broke. Cruiser RV shut down and Thor bought the line. I don't know anything about Thor. Whatever you chose I hope you get as much enjoyment and have as much fun and have so many experiences as we have had. It has given us a chance to see this beautiful country we would never had had without our FunFinder.

RE: Where you going this Winter?

This is only our second year of trying a limited snowbird trip. Last year we stayed at different state parks in Florida in February. Over the years we have stayed in many of the Florida state parks but in the summer or fall. Even in those seasons available campsites can be hard to come by. This year I came upon a rare one in a million 5 night cancelation in Long Key State Park in the Keys in January. So we will be going down in January after we pick up our camper which we sill store in Myrtle Beach. I have 2 nights in Anastasia, 4 nights in Gamble Rogers and 2 nights in Jonathan Dickinson so far. I am working at filling in the dates in-between. I check the Florida State Parks website at least 10 or more times a day for cancelations that will work for us. Doing that got us into Pennycamp and Bahia Honda last year. Still hoping to find cancelations in Pennycamp, Bahia Honda, and Curry Hammock or Sebastion Inlet for January and February.
