RE: What are you reading?

leslie Stahl...Becoming Grandma.....she became a grandmother in her early 70's and has written a book telling what it was like to become a grandmother. Its funny and charming and full of love. Having become Nana 2 years 9 months ago at the age of 62 I feel like it could be me who has written the book. For me and for her it was love at first sight. The whole time I am reading it I am going ..yes me too...yes me too....

RE: Florida panhandle

Did anybody mention St. Joseph Peninsula State Park? CG is beside a gorgeous white Gulf beach. Hi, We stayed at St Joseph PSP in February. It was our first time in the panhandle. The park is beautiful and quiet. The beach is beautiful. We loved it there and cant wait to go back. I love the Florida state parks. They are some of the best parks we have stayed at in our travels around the country since 2007.

RE: our first attempt at being snowbirds

Thank you everyone who took the time to post suggestions. I am monitoring the weather closely. I am glad we didn't plan on leaving this weekend:) I am looking at Skidway State Park in Georgia. We have stayed on Jeykell Island and I am also looking at Brunswick GA also. As of now we have reservations at state parks in Florida and at Flamingo campground in Everglades NP. We love the state parks in Florida. I was only able to get these because I checked the website at least 10 times a day for cancelations. Yesterday I came across a cancelation at Sebastian Inlet for the weekend before we go to Bahia Honda for 5 nights. We have stayed at both places 2 or 3 times in the past We are also staying at Talbot Island SP(first time), Gamble Rogers SP(first time), Jonathan Dickinson SP and Flamingo NP(first time). All of these were as a result of constant daily checking. In the past 7 years I still have not figured out how to book Bahia Honda without it being a cancelation:) We have also stayed at Fort Clinch, Anastasia SP. and my all time favorite Long Key SP. Again, thanks to all for replies.

our first attempt at being snowbirds

Hello, Last February we were all set to go to Florida for the month to try out being snowbirds. Because of all of the snow we got here in MA we were unable to get our RV out of our yard or even if we did make the turn onto our very narrow street. So we had to cancel all reservations. This October we took the RV to South Carolina and have it stored outside of Myrtle Beach in Conway SC. We plan on leaving here at the end of this month and picking up the RV and then heading to Florida. We were told by the woman working the office in Conway not to de-winterize in SC. We are looking for advice as to where would be the best place south of Myrtle Beach to de-winterize. I am not sure why we can't de-winterize in SC as I know many people snowbird at Myrtle Beach. Our first night of reservations are on 2/9 in Talbot Island State Park in Florida. We are trying to figure out where to go until then. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thank you,:@ Marianne

RE: Planning trip to Northeast

Hello, Having lived in Massachusetts all my life (63 and 7/8ths years) I have been all over the NE states staying in hotels, inns and since 2007 our trailer. There really are so many beautiful and interesting places to see and visit. My all time favorite though is the coast of Maine. It is truly a beautiful place. All the way from Ogunquit to Eastport. We have stayed at so many places over the years it would be impossible to list them all but our favorite is Wild Duck RV resort in Scarborough. It is an adults only place though. The owner Chris is always welcomes us back and makes sure that we have a great stay.We have stayed at Camden State Park, Sunset Point in Harrington ME. The owner will cook and deliver fresh from the ocean steamed lobster to your campsite. What a treat! Seaview Campground in Eastport, Cherwonki Campground in Wiscacasset, Hadleys Point in Bar Harbor, Mt Desert Narrows II outside of Bar Harbor, Wild Apple, Campground Boothbay, and I may be forgetting a couple. We have been to the west 4 times in our camper, down the eastern seaboard 5 times and all over New England......to me the coast of Maine rivals any of these places for beauty. If you get a chance take the fast ferry to Nantucket, another place we went to many times staying in an inn, this was before our Rv days

RE: Key west Fla.

We have been to the Keys many times. First time on a cruise ship. Then staying at hotels and inns. Now we take our travel trailer and stay in the state parks when possible. We have done many of the excellent suggestions listed here. Drinking up and down Duval St, sunset at Mallory Square, Sloppy Joes, Hog's Breath bar, shopping, kayaking at Long Key, swimming at Bahia Honda, ferry to the Dry Tortugas Truman's Little White House,tourist train around Key West and many a snorkeling party boat. But in my opinion the BEST part of the Keys is underwater. We have snorkeled many different reefs including Dry Tortugas which we took a looooong boat ride to. The best reef is the one suggested here by others...Looe Key. We also like Molasses Reef and many of the others but Looe Key to me is the best. I also like the trip out of John Pennycamp because its all about the snorkeling,although it doesn't go to Looe Key. No loud music, free rum punches and dancing etc on the way back. I just like boat to take me out, let me spend as much time as I can floating over the beautiful reefs and then transport me back as quick as possible. I prefer a nice glass of wine back at the campsite. My second favorite thing driving up and down the overseas highway as much as possible:) What ever you choose ENJOY! We will be there in February at Bahia Honda for 5 nights.

RE: Bedbugs!

...They tend to stay on or in the bed. I honestly think this is, on the whole, a very easy problem to deal with... This is incorrect. If you've never dealt with a BB infestation, you have no idea what you're talking about. Going to bed, KNOWING that you WILL be bit, has a tremendous psychological impact. DO NOT take the presence of a single BB lightly. BB will travel to any area they can hide. Preferably, one that has a nearby food source (you). They are not slow walkers. Bed-side tables, picture frames, electric outlet covers, pillows, baseboards, headboards, box springs, clothing, etc. They bite you, and drink the blood from the wound. The brown spots that appear is their waste - your blood. Some people have very little reaction to the bites. Some people are highly sensitive and the itch is as bad, or worse, than Poison Ivy. If it's not dealt with, one bite will become five, then twenty, etc. BB should not be trivialized or taken lightly. Our exterminator also told us this about them hiding in electrical outlets, frames, baseboards etc. Marianne

RE: Bedbugs!

Hello, Here is my experience with bedbugs. For about a year or so I was finding hard lumps on the back of my neck and also on the inside of my wrists. I had no idea what was happening and my husband just dismissed it as a bug bite.. I also kept finding dark blood stains on our sheets. These would eventually turn brown as I washed the sheets over time. One night my husband woke me up to show me a bug he had caught on his body. At the time I was sick with a severe case of vertigo AND bronchitis. I was barely able to reply to him and then fell back asleep. A few months after that he caught another one and saved it. We did some research and there on the screen was a bedbug looking exactly like the one we found. We took the bed apart. We vacuumed and cleaned etc. There was some reddish stuff on the baseboard. Scrubbed that. We also sprayed some bedbug stuff we got at a hardware store. Did nothing. We took the bed apart again and I noticed some black smears on the box spring. We threw it away and bought a new box spring. It did not help. Called Orkin who told us they couldn't come for 3 days. He also said bedbugs come out in the dark and are attracted to the carbon given off my human breath. They seemed to be coming from the top corner of the left hand side of the bed as that is where I found the reddish stuff and the black stuff. They came and sprayed and gave us mattress covers. A few months later more bites... more blood spots on the bed. Orkin came back as that was part of the package we bought....about nine hundred dollars. About 6 months later I found a dead bedbug in the hem of the bedspread. This time we called a local exterminator who had gotten rid of a skunk family living under our front porch. He sprayed again. No where near as expensive as Orkin. I don't remember who but one of them told us to put cups of mineral oil under each of the bed post.We are still doing that. As luck would have it they never got to the RV. Before Orkin guy came the first time we slept with the lights on as we were told they only come out in the dark. We have not had a problem since the 3rd spaying the the mineral oil in cups thing. This started about 4 years ago. We do travel and had stayed at hotels rooms and on cruise ships. Orkin guy we most likely picked them up in the carryon luggage area of an airplane. Anyway.....it was one of the most traumatic things I have ever gone through.I know compared to all the tragedies happen in the world today it was really nothing. But to me it was. I felt like I couldn't even go to bed at night without worry. The worry of them coming back which they did 2 times. Just the thought that there were bugs crawling in our bed and over us and biting us was awful. It is hard to explain how it effected us. I was teaching in an inner city school at the time and more than one of my students had bedbugs. Who knows? It could have been there although my coat was never hung with the students closet. Just wanted to pass along our experience. Both exterminators told us that they are extremely hard to get rid of. Thats why people living in tenements have a hard time getting rid of them. The landlord usually doesn't want to spend the money to get rid of them correctly. One of my students had bedbug bite all up and down her arms. She would constantly scratch. Her family was at the mercy of the landlord who did nothing. So from what I know if they are truly bedbugs all of the heat steam etc will not get rid of them. It took us three professional whole room sprays , mattress covers, pillow covers and mineral oil in cups to finally get rid of them. We still pull the bed apart periodically and check for signs of them. I wish you luck getting rid of them. Its something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy( not that I have any:) Marianne

RE: Outer Banks or Virginia Beach?

Hello, We have been to VB with our RV many times. We always stay at First Landing State Park. The airplane noise can be loud at times but it wouldn't be a deciding factor for me in terms of staying there. We love FLSP. Love camping in the dunes. We also like the dedicated bike path that runs along the waterfront at Virginia Beach itself. We have only been once to the Outer Banks. It is beautiful there. We stayed at Camp Hatteras. It was in April so not crowded at all. We stayed on the bayside to watch the sunset each night. Have fun whichever you choose.
