RE: Camping Florida for 1st time

I have to vote for Grayton Beach, although it sort of bothers me to boast about such a beautiful park that is already over used and hard to get into, but it is really ideal for us. We a B campers and the private spaces allotted to each site, especially in the older loop is fantastic. We are B campers without a TV, so we virtually fit most anywhere and TV reception is something we worry about when at home not camping. The town of Grayton Beach is worth exploring, as is the Red Bar. As earlier stated Seaside, which is unique, Detin, Panama City, are all close by. Grayton Beach offers you the opportunity to do tourist type stuff and then come back to camp and relax in the quiet of a peaceful sourrounding.

RE: federal senior passes

We got ours at the local National Park. And the reason I said we, is that our last trip to Florida, Juniper Springs Recreation Area is that while I have a Geezer Pass, the DW didn't. I got in for 1/2 price and she had to pay full price. But while in St Augustine and visiting various forts, we both got in for nothing. In other words actual mileage may vary from park to park. Also any veteran having a valid VA ID card, Military card or even their DD214 can get the pass for free, if applied for in person, not sure about on line requests.

RE: Iowa/Minnesota trip help

Thank ya all for the info. Very helpful and several places we never thought of that sound very interesting. Is there enough in the area of Itasca SP to spend 3 days? Maybe a day trip to Bemidji and the Paul Bunyon/Babe statue and a tasteful lunch of a burger (or local favorite) and a beer. What we generally like to plan for our trips is like a large circle. Say up the eastern route and return via the western. Local food is always a focal point, as is history and scenery. thank again for the help.

RE: Another New Member

Welcome to the board. We can be a little opinionated at times and not always agree with you. But there again, you can't always be wrong. There are a bunch of very nice and well informed people here who are more than happy to share their wealth of info on many topics. Many happy and safe travels! Enjoy our beautiful country!

RE: Branson MO and Eureka Springs

Table Rock SP is really nice, but we prefer Roaring River SP near Cassville Mo and not far from Eureka Springs, AR. A great trout fishing park. Between Roaring River and Branson is a bunch of things to see and do: Eagle Rock Corp park and Big M Corp park are in that area and very nice, but not commercial, nice & quiet, both on Table Rock Lake. Golden Pioneer museum is great and a true hidden treasure in Golden, MO. Coming from Eureka Springs, heading east, is the Office Pub. Best fried chicken ever, but only on Tuesdays. Down the road, eastward heading toward Branson, is Dogwood Canyon. Owned by the Bass Pro people and very much worth the seeing, if you like nature and the such. Even further east is Big Cedar Lodge, another BassPro entity. Worth seeing. No camping, at least when we were there last, but still worth the seeing, and even a pleasant meal. If nothing else, you can see how the other half lives. As much as we like Eureka Springs, and seldom go there, it never fails that there is always a festival of one sort or another going on, be it a Corvette rally, quilting festival, or what have you, it's always crowded. Enjoy, there's a tone to do and see in the part of the country.

RE: CGs within an hour of St. Louis

An hour from StL? Hmm, on the outter edge of that is Hawn State Park, off Hwy 32 outside of Ste. Genevieve. If you drive like my wife and depending on the part of the "city" you refer to, an hour is within reach. But a totally gorgeous park, small, clean and nice hiking trails. Dogwoods blossom in the spring and are spectacular. http://i465.photobucket.com/albums/rr13/garmp/P5050174_1-1.jpg

RE: Dutch Oven Cooking for Two!

I use this Lodge LCC3 Pre-Seasoned Cast-Iron Combo Cooker, 3-Quart in my truck camper. Perfect size for the wife and I. It's a Dutch Oven and a skillet. Love it. It also fits perfectly in my Volcano Grill. Interesting you should mention the volcano grill. We have become very interested in purchasing one. The first time we saw one was at last years NDOG in Arkansas where they had them for $80. We planned to attend this years in Iowa, but illnesses & Dr. appts prevented that. We are very much DOG nubees. Do you have/use the optional lid or cover? Do you think it's worth the expense. thanks

RE: Dutch Oven Cooking for Two!

We have a 12" and just recently bought a 10" deep and just for the two of us it works great. A bit large for baking purposes, but on a restricted diet, a lot of bread and/or baked isn't the best any way. Check out what "Deep" versions are available because they allow you to fit in a chicken or a decent size roast. Enjoy!

RE: Grill grates are an excellent way to prevent flare-up

We absolutely love ours. Been using for a couple of years now. Even take a set along to use over the campground fire pit/hibachi at campgrounds. And yes, online only that I know of.

RE: door glass for a ford van

When we bought our 2012 Ford rear opening windows were not an option. We asked and were told they did away with them for fear of exhaust entering when windows were open while driving.

RE: Looking for a custom Sprinter RV Shop. Advice?

IMHO, Sportsmobile is THE way to go. We took one of their many standard floor plans and adjusted it to our needs and wants. You can still have "gem-encrusted door pulls, exotic woods, or marble floor tiles" if you want or as basic as you desire. We worked with the Indiana folks and they were/are nothing short of terrific. We love ours.

RE: Is there a campground list website

We have found The Ultimate US Public Campground Project to be the best source for public campgrounds. It shows over 20,000 camping location across the lower 48. They also have a great app for Apple devices. We have found some great places with the help of this site. Ted H. I second The Ultimate US Public Campground for a good source of info. And http://www.uscampgrounds.info/ is also a very helpful site with lots of good info about hook-ups, reservations, coordinates and more.

RE: Tow Foldable with Class B

Perhaps this could be an alternative for you. If not it is interesting just the same. http://www.conqueroraustralia.com.au/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=7&Itemid=13 Here's a better link for the UEV-440. (http://uev.com.au/440-2) Not bad for a starting price of $49,990!
