RE: Moving from SC to MA in winter with small TT

Hi, First of all welcome to Massachusetts. We have traveled and stayed in South Carolina and want to say people are friendly,welcoming and helpful. We love Hilton Head and Myrtle Beach Travel Park twice and the beautiful campgrounds in the Appalachians. We have stayed at Ocean Lakes at least 4 times, WillowTree Resort and Campground once, Oak Planation once. Myrtle Beach campground twice,and Hunting Island once. You could check out Normandy Farms on the south shore . It used to be open all year but I think it may be closed in the winter now. I'm not sure. It is close to Foxboro ,the winter home of our beloved Patriots, so it might be open longer than other campgrounds. There are are a few campgrounds in NH that stay open for skiing and snowboarding seasons but if you are attending school in MA that would not really work out well as most are up in the White Mts. Two years ago we had reservations at various state parks in the Keys FL. but because of all the snow we got and the narrowness of our street we had to cancel all reservation. Last October we stored our RV in a storage facility in Conway SC. We then traveled to SC in February to pick up the RV to head to the Keys. Of course last winter we did not have as much snow and we could have pulled the RV out of the yard, made the turn onto our street and headed south. One problem though is that there are not really any campgrounds open until you get to maybe North Carolina. If you are planning on looking for housing it will all depend on where you will be located. I don't have any knowhow about housing for students but as we have thousands and thousands of students coming here for the colleges there is, I think, many opportunities for some sort of housing. Good luck in your future endeavor and thank you and your family for your service to our country.

RE: What place has made you Blush, cry, make you proud...?

One place that made me cry and remembering it can still bring tears to my eyes was the Oklahoma City bomb site memorial We saw it in 2007. It was so solemn and so sad and so beautiful. I think more than anything it was seeing the granite chairs placed to the left side on levels corresponding to where each person died....but it was most especially the smaller chairs that memorialized the children killed there.I still get a lump in my throat when I tell someone about it. My eyes are watering now as I write this. And of course seeing the 9/11 site about 6 months after it happened. We were in NYC at the end of October 2001 but we decided to wait and see it at another time.

RE: RV clubs focused on Folk/Roots/Americana music and festivals

We love our Funfinder. We have had some issues over the years such as a leak in the cap over the bed....a leak in a hose under the sink.....air conditioner had to be fixed...flat tires....and just general wear and tear (faded and curling graphics...bench seat separating from wall the awning ripped of in a bad ice storm etc... BUT.....we have traveled 1000's and 1000's of miles in it since we bought it in 2007. We have been out west 4 times...up and on and over the Rocky's in Colorado,Wyoming and Montana....through the high desert of Arizona and California and Nevada... major highways.....secondary roads .....we have jostled over many a bad highway and back roads.....for miles and miles. We have taken it to The Keys about 6 times....through the Appalachians the Catskills, the Adarondacks the White and Green MT.s of New England.....up the Maine coast quite a few times...across lower Canada...through the midwest...and we still love it. I don't think that we have had any real major issues since we have traveled so far and for the last 9 years in it.We talk about upgrading...getting a slide out...but this was our first Rv and our first venture into Rv and camping and road trips making so many wonderful memories that the thought of selling it makes me kind of weepy):....In Indiana we did a tour of the factory....but I know that Cruiser RV was just bought out by Thor so not sure about any changes....Well this was a long wordy answer but I just wanted to say that we are still very happy with our Funfinder.

RE: RV clubs focused on Folk/Roots/Americana music and festivals

Does anyone know of any RV clubs or groups that tour the country, stopping at music venues or festivals featuring folk, roots, or Americana music? Hi, We stayed at the Stephen Foster Folk Cultural State Park on our way to the panhandle in Florida this past February. It was our first time there. It is located near White Springs. It was a beautiful park dedicated to Foster. There is a bell carrion that rings throughout the day. There is a museum with a collection of old pianos. There was a music /folk art event going on. Outside the gift shop was a singalong of Foster's music . And there was a schedule for the year of all the cultural, folk and musical performances,events and festivals. There seemed to be different groups there participating in the events. It was a very pleasant stay and we would have stayed longer but had reservations at St.Joe's State Park.

RE: Tell me about Cape Cod

Ok, I convinced my wife to do one more night in Cape Cod and one less in Connecticut! Booked the very last site at Atlantic Oaks and we'll be there for two nights now. Thanks everybody! Can't wait. Hi, We have stayed many times at Atlantic Oaks. Its a great central location. We like it as you can get on the bike path from the campground eliminating having to drive to it.

RE: Why we luv our rig

What I love most of all about our 2007 21ft Fun Finder is all the memories we have made traveling in it since 2007. Its our first RV and we still love it. No slideout...although one would be nice. Nothing fancy except maybe full 60x80 island queen bed. And it has been with us during 4 trips to the west for 6 weeks each time. Many trips to Florida,the Eastern Seaboard and many trips around NE including so many trips to 2 of our favorite campgrounds....Wild Duck In Maine and Lake Forest in NH. But most of all it is all the beautiful places we have seen and the opportunity to see so much of this wonderful country and the memories we have created.My only wish is that we hadn't waited so long to experience all of these wonderful memories

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.
