RE: Best small electric heaters

Vornado X3, 4 or what ever. Best bang for the buck.

RE: Which Class C Should we buy and why?

We are in a similar situation and looking for something in that range. The difference is we are van campers (Sportsmobile actually) and dearly love it, but as you said, age is taking it's tole. We want to upgrade to a Phoenix Cruiser, which has gotten the best reviews of many if not all of the competition. Our Sportsmobile is only 4 years old with about 30K miles and really hate to get rid of it, but the last two years either one or the other of us has had health issues and we need a few more conveniences. Might be slower, but not given up. May be making the switch from camping to Rving, but still getting out. But I degress. My suggestion to the OP is to check out Phoenix Cruiser for a quality unit. Built on a Ford cutaway.

RE: South

If you go to Florida, don't go to Grayton Beach SP! You wouldn't like it at all. The camp sites all, in the older section, have growies between them and way to private with elect & water, but no sewer. You feel isolated and alone. The beach, a drive, long walk or bike ride away, has virtually no one so if you sink, help is miles away. And the breeze is only intermittent at best and not hardy. So I can tell you wouldn't like this place. enjoy!

RE: 1800 miles in 3 days with 3 kids in a truck. Crazy or not

OP. Have you considered duct tape? Just a thought.

RE: Sportsmobile

We have a Sportsmobile, but not a sprinter and willing to help if we can.

RE: Canadian Health Care

Did call our insurance company and they told us, "No problem" we're covered. Hope we don't have to find out. Thanks to all for your input!!!

RE: Rear Corner Bed- bothersome?

We are getting to the point where we can spend more time traveling, but by the same token these old bones don't work as they used to. We wanted a walk around bed and a full time eating area in the shortest vehicle possible. As others have said, selecting an RV is a compromise. We selected the Phoenix Cruiser 2100. Sure the sofa has to unfold and the bed made when setting up camp, but with the help of a home made (DW is a retired seemstress) Travasak, it's a breeze. And at 21 foot it's not much longer than our B. Works for us, but not for every one I know, as we tend to be touring campers/RVers rather than destinationers. Got the constant itch for the road. And oh yeah no corner bed in the 2100.

Canadian Health Care

We're planning a trip to the UP of Michigan and into Canada for a day or two. How does this work if one of us, say, breaks an arm or such? We're from the US, have insurance and all, but I believe Canada is on a government type sponsored system. What's the protocol for receiving medical attention when out of country?

RE: Did you use and like Street Atlas - Sorry Suckers

If you use a tablet, as we do, there a ton of apps out there to enhance your driving. Next Exit shows what coming up on the next exit. Food, gas, lodging, whatever you set. There's apps for the next WalMart and probably even White Castle. IMHO a tablet with wifi, goolge and a few select apps, traveling can't be that challenging. But I do still carry paper maps along. If for no other reason than to keep up my origami skills.

RE: Weather trivia

As our meteorologist put it: Chance of spot showers. If you're getting wet you're in the spot. If not, you're not.

RE: Whatcha doin this weekend?

Loading up our B and waiting for the holiday campers to return home so we can head to the UP of Michigan and then on to Agawa Campground in Ontario. Seeing the sites of the north before heading to the Sportsmobile rally in Frankenmuth. And then back home.

RE: we are so excited

Wow! I'm envious. I can just imagine our B camper parked in one of those luxurious sites.

RE: Pancake Bay Provincial Park

Thanks eagle. We will more than likely make that one of our stops. Looking for a campsite near the city where we can tour and play tourist for a day or so. Appreciate it.

RE: NS Great Lakes

I wish I knew what "NS Great Lakes" means or even where it is. NS, North South or No Such? Hmmm!

RE: Should I just quit smoking?

Try cold smoking. It's great!!! Smoked cheese, eggs for deviled eggs, butter, nuts. Most anything you can think of. It can really add a new dimension to foods.

As we age

I must admit I did steal this, but it is to good to let sit. My goal for 2016 was to lose just 10 pounds … only 20 to go. Ate salad for dinner … Mostly croutons & tomatoes ... Really just one big, round crouton covered with tomato sauce ... And cheese ... FINE, it was a pizza ... I ate a pizza … How to prepare Tofu: 1. Throw it in the trash. 2. Grill some Meat. I just did a week's worth of cardio after walking into a spider web... I don't mean to brag but … I finished my 14-day diet food in 3 hours and 20 minutes ... A recent study has found women who carry a little extra weight live longer than men who mention it ... Kids today don't know how easy they have it... when I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel ... Senility has been a smooth transition for me ... Remember back when we were kids and every time it was below zero how they closed school? Me neither. I may not be that funny or athletic or good looking or smart or talented … I forgot where I was going with this ... I love being older … I learn something new every day … and forget 5 others A thief broke into my house last night … He started searching for money … so I woke up and searched with him... My dentist told me I need a crown … I said, “You bet, pour mine over rocks” … I think I'll just put an "Out of Order" sticker on my forehead and call it a day "Just remember, once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed.

RE: Pancake Bay Provincial Park

OK. I think I have narrowed it down to Agawa and Pancake Bay. Our time is limited, but love the woods and camping and want to take in as much as we can. However, DW has read reviews of Sault Ste Marie KOA and wants to spend some time exploring the city of Sault Ste Marie. Is this (KOA) something a camper would like? I mean will my picnic table be under someone else's slide? Don't get me wrong I want to see SSM, but a KOA? thanks

RE: One Pot Meals (?)

Doug, can't cover everything, but a big plus for us is prior to a trip I grill several brats. Eat my share and freeze the rest in individual bags, have a Seal-A-Meal/FoodSaver and love it. Pop them into the microwave and presto, a great sandwich. Also do this with pork chops and baby back ribs. It's amazing how that sealed bag balloons up in the microwave and when you open it, it's like they just came off the grill. I know it won't cover everything, but what's a meal without a good brat?
