RE: Pork Butt

We don't plan on pulling it apart, but rather slicing it as a roast with potatoes and a veggie side. Gonna try it this coming Tuesday, good Lord willing and the creek don't rise, and will have to let you all know.

RE: RV and Camping interest is rising

Yup! The Boomers have hit the roads. And I/we are living proof! Travel on!

When do the snow birds hit the Gulf coast?

We are planning a two week to the gulf coast and wonder what the competition for campsites will be like the last two weeks of October. Not sure when the snow birds land. Being from the mid-west, we plan to hit the Panama City area first and then work our way west to Port Charles, LA before returning home (STL). Seeing what we can see and taking in all the views and local eateries. Have noticed that St. Andrews SP is booking up fast so we made a reservation for there as that is a must on our list, but the rest is up in the air. We are B/van campers so we do have a slight advantage (I hope) in needing only electric hook-ups. Just need to get in to a park. Any opinions/thoughts on the availability/crowds at State or federal parks along the way. Any hidden gems of parks, sights or eateries? Make that parks, EATERIES, or sights would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Pork Butt

Heading out shortly on a fishing trip and plan to do a pork butt in the dutch oven. Not new to camping, but inexperienced in the art of dutch oven cooking. Any one have any secret tips/recipes that I can impress the DW with? Got a smallish 4lb roast and a 10" D.O. and a volcano grill. Oh yeah and a cooler full of beer.

RE: Corps of Engineers campgrounds

Camping with the Corps is a great book, but double check their coordinates before using it on a trip. I have found on several occasions they were incorrect.

RE: What Did You Do To Your Class B Today ?

Working on a screen/boot for the back of the van. Open the doors, attach some hooks to the drip rail and velcro along the sides and TaDa, the entire back is open to screening and lovely breeze. Working is the optimal word as our project is halted by thunderstorms. Makes fitting a bit difficult, as this is an adapt as you go project. Hope to finish and post pics soon.

RE: Removable Awning

Found the clips/carabiners I wanted to attach the canopy to the "O" rings on the penthouse top, and of all places at our local grocery store! Actually they were selling small hand sanitizer bottles that had carabiners to attach to you purse, belt, what ever. Perfect size I wanted and at a regular price of $1.00, but on clearance of $0.25. Just made my day. Now if I can get the DW, the seamstress, in gear and sew the velcro strips, we should be go to go! Hopefully pics to follow, just don't know when.

RE: Reservations or not

We seldom make reservations with the possible exception of the final destination before returning home. ie: St Augustine SP is booked most of the time. That was our destination site and due to the popularity we made reservation for the time we wanted and/or could get. We researched a perceived route with potential camping sites noted. Check their availability, if on ReserveAmerica or other sources with as many alternatives as we can find. Note their names, locations, highlights & GPS coordinates. Then head off to happy camping. Then return trip is basically the same routine with trying to find the last site within a couple of hours of home. For some reason the last day/return trip seams the longest to us, so we want a relatively short drive the last day. Probably won't work for a lot of folks, but does for us. Besides, during the winter months when we don't get out, we plan, research and wish. Enjoy and wing it!!!

RE: CAMPGROUND PIGS

We just returned from a trip to western NY state, via Ohio & PA. While staying in Willow Bay Campground we saw a notice on the bulletin board, that I wished we had photographed. It read something to the effect that: "you will be billed for the clean-up of liter in your campsite including and in particularly inside the fire ring." Wish more places would adapt this policy!

RE: Before pulling out...

We have a SportsMobile with a penthouse (pop-up) top, which once we moved without lowering, a few feet, before the horror set in. There also has been an occasion with our previous van that we forgot to unplug from the shore power before leaving the campsite. For those two reasons I had this made to help remind us. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-mVKIkIwluGU/VckVH0NMCLI/AAAAAAAAFjk/RXV136uGrv0/s640-Ic42/P7140104.JPG Plan on having this embroidered on a T-shirt, with sleeves to make it even more official.

RE: Best Way to Bbq Lobster?

I have never tried that before, but if you send me a couple of lobsters to work with I'm sure I could figure it out and then tell you how to or not to do it.

RE: The family is done.

I've only been RVing for 3 years, but camping for over 62. Been married for over 44 years and camped all the while. (The only way we could afford vacations.) Our RV experience is limited to a SportsMobile pop-top with minimal inside luxuries. We have a microwave, if there's shore power, and a porta-pottie, water can and coolers. Do Most of our cooking, eating, and living outside (you know – camping!). We don't get on the road for much more than a couple of weeks at a time, (health issues), so the B is perfect for us. But never want to give it up. Too much to see and too many nice folks to meet.

RE: 100% Disabled Vet Rates

I was shocked to receive anything, being out of state. Most states that offer discounts to vets require they be state residents. I would like to build a database of some sort with all this info, but unfortunately our limited travel would take a lifetime to accomplish. Not to mention my database knowledge is...er...should I say, I'm lucky to be able to spell database.

RE: My Chevrolet Express van Class B- camper

That's pretty much how we did ours, and for the same reason, although our "honey bucket" is of the older style. http://i.imgur.com/PYoVBigl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/WERnibQl.jpg

RE: Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park in Oct

Thanks mikestock for the advice. Think we'll call Tannehill as we near it and if it is full, not that I don't believe you, we'll head on to plan B, Brierfield Ironworks Historical State Park down the road a bit. According to google maps we can always make a day trip back to Tannehill before heading to Panama City, FL. And if we can't make Tannehill that's fine. Ain't never been to the Super Bowl neither! Thanks again.

RE: Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park in Oct

mikestock: Should we change our plans or do you think we might find a decent site for a couple of nights if we plan to arrive Oct. 4? I think that this early in the month we should find something decent for a B that only needs electric, but more than willing to listen to a veteran of the park. Worse case scenario we'd spend only one night. Thanks

RE: Mississippi state and coe parks

We stayed at Holmes County State Park, a bit north of Jackson, MS on our way from St Louis to Destin, but that's been a few years back. From what I remember, a very nice, clean park that was close to Hwy 55. Been meaning to get back there again, just haven't.
