RE: Spring and camping is just around the corner.

Been planning for a few months now. Booked reservations for the end of April and the first part of May. It's our traditional anniversary trout fishing trip. Be 45 yrs this May 1st and still she has problems with a fly rod. God love her! Planning a couple of more for later in the year. Seems like winter is our "planning period".

RE: Ocean Waves reservation confirmed. Couple of ?'s

Can't answer you question, but have a question of my own for you. We had planned to visit Ocean Waves but might change our plans. We are from St Louis, MO and had planned to arrive via the southern route, coming from Northern GA. Checked out the ferry info to get to Ocean Waves and it all sounded quite crowded and cumbersome with the possibility of delays. My question is: How do you plan to arrive at Ocean Waves? From the north? Taking Ferries? Thanks

Need dessert help

We are planning to attend a B rally on our way home from a two week trip. On one evening the pot luck meal is broken down according to the initial letter of your last name. As luck would have it we are in the dessert category. DW is a great cook and her desserts are seldom out matched. Our B has a micro wave and that's it. We will have our BBQ grill and electric griddle. Any novel, easy suggestions?

RE: Assateague State Park, MD to St Louyis, MO

Guess you are going to cross the CBBT. That should be fun. Stop at the visitors center on one of the tunnel islands. Getting off the Eastern Shore is another matter. No toll on the Bay Bridge east to west. After that it is the auto jungle between Baltimore & Washington. Have fun. Was that a tongue in cheek comment? Like spending a weekend with my in-laws is fun? We plan to stay at Trap Pond State Park, DE and visit Assateague SP on day trips and then snake our way west to Hwy 32 and on to West Friendship, where we pick up Hwy 70 to Rocky Gap SP. Any advice on either or those parks or the route?

RE: The dreaded donut hole.

DW hit it mid April last year. No fancy KOA's last year. Hopefully this coming year will be better and we can travel more.

RE: Assateague State Park, MD to St Louyis, MO

Banting about the idea of leaving the Assateague area and going to Rocky Gap SP, MD. From there to Hocking Hlls, OH. The DW always wanted to see that area. The final leg would be Shakamak State Park, IN and then home. Any thoughts on this for a plan?

Ocean Waves Campground, NC

Planning a trip from St Louis to the Hatteras up to Assateague State Park and then returning home. We camp in a B (SportsMobile converted van) so we can fit most places and only need electric and clean facilities. My question is, since our timing is really iffy (some where early to mid June), and we would like to spend a night or two at Ocean Waves CG do you think reservations are a must? Or will we be out in the cold? I couldn't find a reservation site on line and hesitate to call or email them to ask if they project any openings then. A - how are they to know (other than historically) and B - any marketeer worth their salt would say to reserve now, "we're filling fast". Anyone out there have any knowledge? thanks

RE: campground suggestions

In MO, Roaring River SP is close to AR (about 15 miles)and OK (about 35 miles). Nice quiet trout fishing park capable of handling large rigs, primitive campers and all in between.

Assateague State Park, MD to St Louyis, MO

We want to see Assateague State Park & island but are having difficulties in planning a return trip. We plan on arriving via a southern route, northern Georgia, NC and to the Hatteras then up to Assateague area. Our return trip goal is to only drive for 4, maybe 5 hours a day and then settle for a couple of days before hitting the road again. Problem is we don't want to just sit at a campsite but tour the area. Any interesting sights between ASP & StL? Willing to spend 3 nights at a promising area and then a single night elsewhere. We're pretty much open. We are B campers and only require electric and clean facilities. Prefer State, COE and Federal parks to private ones, but not opposed for a night or two if all is right. Thanks

RE: Now retired: Pulling a camper, or, driving a motorhome????

Lew, It depends on what you want to do and the retirement life style you want. Taking the expense out of the equation and going on strictly wants and likes: Do you want to travel to point A, set-up and spend some time and then move on. I would say an A is for you. Or do you want to travel to point A, set-up, tour the area, spend some time, see what's around the next bend and then move on. You'd be hard pressed to do so in an A. That is just my opinion. I'm a B'er, so my travel style is different, that every day is an adventure to us. Always seeking the next new vista.

RE: Class B cookware

Our cookware: well, there's the electric coffee pot, electric griddle, folding BBQ Grill, Volcano Grill, and our Dutch Oven. The B has a microwave and for the most part that is it unless a trip has planned some exotic meal calling for a baking dish, cake pan or such.

RE: Kelley's Island

We stayed at East Harbor State Park and then toured Kelly's Island and campground. Isn't bad for a day trip and less expensive to take your toad or truck across the ferry. We found the SP to be excellent and it offered easy access to all the sites we came to see. If you do stay at the East Harbor State Park, and are a veteran, be sure to check out or ask about vets discount. Did us good.

RE: Home sensors for seniors?

bump, we stayed with them. Had little choice. The only advantage was that my Mother wanted to do her own grocery shopping and went with her baby sister (87 yo) and another lady from church. The outings did her good and the pendant was GPS sensitive, so we did have some feeling of security there. When she was at home, refused to live with anyone, we kept as much surveillance as we could with the help of family, neighbors and friends. Things did come to the point where her living alone was no longer an option, and me as the older of two sons, played the villain.

RE: Home sensors for seniors?

We went thru that with my mother. Most of those "Alert" companies are owner by the same outfit. And none are worth it in our opinion. My mother, 92, was very active so we got one with the GPS and all the bells & whistles. Constantly giving erroneous signals, false alerts and too much mis-information. EMT's would show up at her door for no reason. Agreed that they are a necessary evil, but stay on them and ***** (sorry) and complain as often as it takes for them to get the info correct. And watch your bill. We had too many "oops". Obviously, we weren't happy with our choice. Best of luck to you.

Sault Ste Marie

Traveling from St. Louis to the UP of Michigan and wanting to venture into Canada for a night or two before heading south again we are looking for a nice campground close to Sault Ste Marie. We want to try the Northern hospitality and scenery but know nothing of the area. (And want to add Canada to our camping map). Working on Google now, but prefer personal opinions and views. We have a "B" camper and only require electric and showers of a campground. Prefer a park with trees and growies, to field with tables and power poles. Also looking for local eateries. As we call them "Beer & Burger joints", Mom & Pop vs franchises. Native cuisine and atmosphere. Historic sites and culture. Any and all help would be appreciated.

RE: UP in June or Sept?

Thanks for all the advice. Really thinking of following thru with these plans and even camping a night or so in Ontario (Cause we can, and just to add to our map). Any words of wisdom on Canadian campgrounds near Sault Ste Marie. Money exchange or whatever? Thanks a bunch.
