RE: Question for diabetics (or those familiar with one)

Stress can be VERY bad for a diabetic and their A1C control. I know. I am insulin dependent and test my blood sugar 6+ time a day. It has become my religion, so to speak. I had left my last job because of the stress and it's ill effects on my health. Some things you learn to live with, some you overcome and others you just curse and move on. Good luck finding your place and camp on...

RE: Problems with Class Bs used as second cars where restricted.

Isn't "where restricted" the key phrase here? I'd find out what is "restricted" and what is not. Pending the vehicle, the title will not give the proper info, i.e. our SportsMobile conversion. Titled as a Ford van, NOT an RV. Don't try to misdirect or mislead the HOA. Be up front, all will live better. There has to be alternatives to your situation.

RE: Unusual or little known sights worth seeing

Got some great places so far. Here's another we ran across in our travels: Ground Zero Blues Club, Clarksdale, MS. Not much of one for night spots, but this is worth it. We stopped in during the day for lunch and was not disappointed. No music at that time of day, but cold beer and good food. Reportedly owned, or at one time owned, by Morgan Freeman. This eclectic establishment turned, or helped turn, an improvised community into a thriving mecca for Blues lovers. A very interesting establishment and community. http://i.imgur.com/QH1WYDnl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/ZZlX6OEl.jpg

RE: Hilton Head Island

I have to agree with Sport. We are not RV Park people. We are campers. Outdoors, in the woods and enjoying nature. RV Park people and campers may share the road but not necessarily the destination.

RE: So...question for you all.

I have to agree that a TT or a 5er would be your best answer. No one addressed the fact that your budget is 10 to 20K. You're not going to touch either an A or a B that's worthwhile for that price, unless you're looking for a shell to live in and not drive. Just my opinion.

RE: Sault Ste Marie area campgrounds

Being from the mid-west, we're looking for weather that's cool, but not cold. What's the best time of year to find upper 40's at night & say 60's during the day in the area. And how's the moisture? Rainy or clear? Which month do you recommend?

RE: Unusual or little known sights worth seeing

Ran across this pic in our archives and thought it deserved mentioning, even though we haven't been there in a couple of years: Dunn's Falls, Enterprise, MS link http://i.imgur.com/ml36tbIl.jpg

Sault Ste Marie area campgrounds

We plan on leaving St Louis, MO this spring and head to the UP of Michigan, and while up there why not add another color to our "camped in" map. We need help. Got our passports and would like to stay in Canada near Sault Ste Marie. We know nothing, as to what we can and/or can not bring into the country. Nor do we know where to stay once we get there. Only plan on spending a night or two before heading back to the states. We are B campers, so site size is not a big issue, and only require electric. Showers & flush facilities are preferred. And a view is always a plus. Nearby local eateries, sights and groceries are also a desired. Time of year recommendations and campground availability info would also really help. thanks

Here's one of my favorites. Best fried peanuts ever. Just outside of Helen, GA. http://i.imgur.com/RQCd1tml.jpg

RE: Thank you, veterans!

I agree! Another Nam Vet here. Came home a bit messed up, but with all my limbs and am thankful for that. Hats off to all that served. God Bless.

RE: Good Park near Louisville, KY

General Butler State Resort Park is about half way between Cincinnati & Louisville. A nice park with HU's not sure if FHU. Is a state park, not a RV park. Nice.

Unusual or little known sights worth seeing

A previous post, "The landmarks game; name a city or place and the landmark", was very interesting. And did vary off course some, and I'm guilty of that as well. Some seemed upset that we diverted from the OP's request, "Name a city, a county or a state and name the most recognizable landmark or feature that makes that place instantly recognizable to everybody." So with this in mind I propose the following, list Unusual or little known sights worth seeing. What's out there folks? Pics, location and a description would be helpful. With that I propose: Providence Canyon State Park Lumpkin, GA 31815 Providence Canyon State Park is a 1,003 acres state park located in Stewart County in southwest Georgia. The park contains Providence Canyon, which is sometimes called Georgia's "Little Grand Canyon". No camping, day use only. But worth the look see. http://i.imgur.com/QSMF2kll.jpg http://i.imgur.com/gV1Bw8Xl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/KHM1GUbl.jpg

RE: The landmarks game; name a city or place and the landmark

Maybe not a national landmark, but certainly worth while. Mammy's Cupboard. South of Natchez, MS on Hwy 61. Short hours, great food. http://i.imgur.com/0aq3vqFl.jpg

RE: Bilioxi, MS camping suggestions

We just returned from a 2 week trek from Panama City, FL to Palmetto Island SP, LA. Buccaneer SP is nice, but we much preferred Davis Bayou Campground. Davis is a national park and very nice, small and pretty full when we were there, but very nice and closer to Biloxi. Wonderful facilities and shower house. Would go back there in a heart beat.

RE: ~Post your campsite photos here~

Florala SP, AL Actually the state is turning the park over to the city. When we were there 9/18, the state had pulled out all the laundry equipment, and the park in general could use some TLC. Beautiful view and level sites with clean, for now, showers. http://i.imgur.com/xevsenMl.jpg

RE: Thanksgiving on the Road or Off?

We're also closing up for the season, but our T-Day plans include serving dinner to VETs at our local Elks Lodge. It's a truly great and rewarding day for all.

RE: B+ or C

Thanks for all the replies. Gave me a lot to chew on. Some progress has been made in just what we're after. And to answer PghBob, it will be used to travel the country, but not full time. Anywhere from week long fishing trips to our favorite SP to 2 or 3 weeks on the road sight seeing. About four or so trips a year (at this time). The only plumbing we'd use would more than likely be the commode. At this point the shower is not needed, as would be the sink. But we have never had these features, so now we don't miss them. We are basically outside people, but in reality as we age more and more, inside comforts and conveniences may become desirable. A slide isn't "needed" if we find the interior space still comfortable without. Looking at some model suggested we really lean towards the B+ because of the cab over and width. The cab over seems to disruptive while driving and see no sense of "getting used to it", if we don't like it, nor need it for storage. Thor Gemini or Compass or the Phoenix Cruiser (both 23') would be possibilities if we can find an affordable one. Going to be looking for a while as we have more time than money. And aren't in a big hurry. Keep the suggestions coming. Thanks all

B+ or C

Currently have a B and love it!. Getting older and health is not improving for either of us, but still love to camp. We are toying with the idea of a new RV, either a B+ or a small C. Looking for the smallest unit that has a full time bed and an eating area. Don't know if that's a B+ or a C. Slides could be nice, but not priority. A bathroom (john) is a plus, but don't NEED a shower. Don't want to climb up to a bunk to sleep, or fold down a Murphy bed. Fridge, range, sink are all nice, but we haven't been used to them yet but could be a plus and convenient in inclement weather. Thanks

RE: Places to see in the Southeast

From St L and just returned from a two week jaunt which took us down to Panama City, FL (St Andrews SP) along the coast, thru NOLA to Palmetto Island SP and back thru MS, KY and home. Spend a most of the time in Florida, Mississippi, & Louisiana. Great time! Depending on your time frame many/most of the Fla parks, you'll need reservations.
