RE: Driving on beach in outer banks

Here's some footage of the beach. This is at Oregon Inlet. There's vehicle access to the beach next to the campground. Which campground?

RE: Maybe dumb leveling question.

Totally new to this RV stuff. If I level the rear of the coach, do I put blocks under both of the dual wheels?

RE: Niagra Falls Park?

I have to agree with Four Mile. missourijan was right, we did the same thing and really enjoyed it.

RE: Oscar Scherer SP, FL

Thanks for the input. Myakka River State Park sounds very interesting, but according to Reserve America's pic looks a lot more open. What else is there around there other watching gators?

RE: Pellet Smokers - Flavor Quality

I have a RecTec for right at a year now and can't say enough good things about it. I also have a gas grill and a Brinkmann charcoal smoker. Each has its purpose. Pellet smokers do not produce the deep rich wood smoke that a wood or charcoal smoker does but does get the job done! The RecTec has surpassed my expectations. Fill the hopper with pellets, set the temp and cook away. Some great recipes are out there and you can adapt them to your taste. DW was VERY hesitant when I bought this, cost, patio space, electricity, etc. Now, she's in love with it. I formulated a recipe by mixing other recipes and combining this and that to which I can, via brining (a whole other topic) successfully make a $2.69 a pound pork loin taste like a $.99 a pound ham! Smoking is fun as well as tasty! Bottom line – get a pellet grill/smoker! You won't regret it!

RE: pellet BBQ's

I have a RecTec grill and totally love it. Have a gas grill, a Brinkmann charcoal smoker and the RecTec. Three different animals. The pellet grill/smoker is superb and really hard to beat. Doesn't produce the totally smoked flavor of a charcoal/wood smoker, but is great unto it self. Very hesitant about buying it, but it is now about the only grill/smoker I use. Dump in the pellets, set the temp, prep the meat and nothing but terrific results. Don't be afraid to experiment, vary the recipes, or add you own touches. Research you grill choices and have fun.

RE: Spring break camping in Missouri

Calling the park is probably your best shot. Remember that March 1 is opening day of trout season in MO parks so I would suspect that the first couple of days including the first weekend, the park would be rather full.

RE: Spring break camping in Missouri

We reserve a site in loop 2 every year for our anniversary. Who says I'm not a romantic? Normally we drive up to the series of "pools" by the cleaning station and work our way up stream toward the old CCC Lodge from there. Mostly fish for the fun of it, but do manage to keep what I think I'll eat for supper and the DW will catch her meals worth. Cook them that evening over either a wood or a charcoal fire and there's nothing finer!!! On the last day of the trip we will try for the limit and freeze them to take home for smoking. The smoked trout is second only to fresh caught trout over and open fire. RR is great because no boots, no hassle. Fish, clean, eat. Gotta love Missouri park system!!!

Oscar Scherer SP, FL

Oscar Scherer SP, FL in June, any suggestions? We'd like to make reservations, but can't really decide from the pics on Reserve America's site. Will have a B+ with a slide 22' long and need 30 amp power, anything beyond that, water, sewer would be a plus but not required. Would like something close to a shower house and sort of private, not in the open. Level site would be great, but most seem to be. Also need advice on what to do in that area, beaches, sights, restaurants, groceries, etc. RVReviews provided some good info, but of the more general kind. I'm after individual thoughts about which camp site, beach, restaurant, etc is better from your experience. Also would the second full week in June be a mistake as far as weather/crowds are concerned? Thanks

RE: Spring break camping in Missouri

I would guess that if you frequent Montauk SP you trout fish and if that's true, you'd love Roaring River. Especially with kids. Roaring River SP has very little wading permitted and the fishing has always been great every time we've been there. From Wentzville it's a bit further, but there's tons to do in the area. Eureka Springs Ark isn't far. Dogwood Canyon, the Golden, MO Pioneer Museum are also relatively close. Bass Pro is in Springfield for the return trip. Hope this helps.

RE: Dutch Oven size recommendation

Harley Dude. The 10" deep works great with the Volcano as it does with the 12". Love that grill!

RE: First choice reservations. Scam???

Not necessarily the first choice site, but in the same vane. Has anyone heard of or used WanderLabs? They seem to offer a similar service, but sounds to be more up front. Almost tempted to try them but I haven't tried either, just throwing it our there.

RE: Passport America, worth it or not?

I still have PA but have not used it in a few year's. Since getting a Thousand Trail's membership and RPI included, it's hard to beat the cost/savings. I have noted that over the year's with PA, the restrictions seem to be growing on when and how PA can be applied. For my own edification and that of those afraid to ask, what is RPI that's included?

RE: Ark Encounter

We thoroughly enjoyed Petit Jean State Park and even took in Hot Springs National Park in Little Rock. (It's not us to visit a major city, but it was worth while.) Magazine SP is interesting also. Northwest of there are the lakes and our favorite area is the Table Rock area. War Eagle Mill, Eureka Springs and even into Missouri and Roaring River State Park, Golden MO Museum and Dogwood Canyon, to name a few. Enjoy!

RE: Hard-Sided PopUp Class B

The Safari Condo has so much to offer. Looks like a regular van when not in parked top up mode. Has a full wet bath that is hidden under the dinette. Tell me more about the full wet bath under the dinette. I'm puzzled! I found nothing on their web site, but in all honesty did not perform an extensive search. I'm just over 6 foot, there's no way I can fit under the dinette.

RE: Dutch Oven size recommendation

From my experience, I first got a 12" and it works terrific with our Volcano grill. And yes most recipes are geared toward the 12. But for just the two of us, which is most of the camping we use a 10" deep. If you go to a 10 deep you can cook a bunch more things than in a regular 10. Chickens, bone-in rib roasts, etc. That little bit of extra height really comes in handy. JMHO!

East Lynn Lake Campgrounds - Stonewall, WV

Is anyone familiar or even been to this park? (East Lynn Lake Campgrounds - Stonewall, WV 25557) Looking for a stay of a day or two on our way to St. Louis from Fairy Stone SP. We will have a small B+ and looking for a shaded spot, not an open field. Google Earth doesn't reveal much other than the lake looks more like a river than a lake. And the Corp reservation site's GPS coordinates are not to the campground. RVReviews doesn't list it at all. thanks

Another roadside assistance question

We are getting a new RV on a Ford chassis and it comes with the typical Ford 5 yr warranty including roadside assistance. My concern is that the "new" thought on RV's (C's and up) is that they don't come with spare tires. Argument is, "who can change a tire on one of these anyway?", but actually is a cost/profit thing in my opinion. But anyway I want to know your opinions about an additional roadside assistance plan, i.e. Good Sam, Coach Net, whatever. Really don't want to spend the money, but would like to have the peace of mind. Been on the road in our previous B for over 5 years and the only tire issue was once and it only required a plug that lasted until we sold it. If you agree that a supplemental plan, one more aimed toward RV's, would be best which would your recommend and why. thanks
