RE: Solar eclipse Canada

Agreed. At least 100 miles from here.

RE: Solar eclipse Canada

It blows me away the extra hype. Yes, its a rarity and a really cool sight. But our local news recently had someone from the power company talking about the things they have to prepare for with the eclipse since their solar panels will only get about 5% sun. I guess a really dark, stormy day doesn't compare? Then today while traveling down the highway near home, the big LED road warning signs were posting: "Solar Eclipse August 21. Plan Ahead". For what? Turning on my headlights?

RE: Ocean Lakes Family Campground - HOLY GOLF CARTS!!!!!!

I've heard many good things about Pirateland and Lakewood. I have a co-worker who loves Pirateland. But I just don't see the big site problem. You can see in my pic, a 44' camper, a golf cart, my truck, and at least ten more feet of grass. Plus, my camper and golf cart are on concrete. That's our preference. Fortunately, there are at least six or more campgrounds at Myrtle and N. Myrtle. Fun for everyone. :)

RE: Ocean Lakes Family Campground - HOLY GOLF CARTS!!!!!!

The family will be going to OL August 19th for a week. Never been there. Told the wife that this will either be the best thing we have done, or the worst thing. This will be the furthest we have towed the camper. I've read some negative reviews, but i've read bad reviews for every place we have ever gone. I personally like both types of CG's, whether it be a packed resort, or a small quiet CG. We picked this for our week long vacation this year because of all the activities that are offered. I'm sure my 7 year old daughter will love it and have a blast no matter what. I will probably rent a cart as well. We wanted to explore a little further away from home and go to another beach other than Ocean City, MD. Just got back this afternoon from a four day weekend. Had a great time. The place is a zoo. So yes, your daughter will probably love it. The waterpark stays packed but maybe by the time you get there, some schools will be opened and the crowds will be dying down. Right now, the Army Corps of Engineers is doing a beach renourishment. In other words, they are dredging sand from out in the ocean and pumping it back onto the beach. They should be finished in front of Ocean Lakes within a day or two and moving up toward Lakewood and Pirateland. The new sand is much softer and the beach is much larger. You just have to go over the "sand bridges" to get over the big pipes. What section are you staying in? That will be a huge factor in your decision on a golf cart or not. This is us in H7. We were oceanfront until someone showed up in H8. :B http://i.imgur.com/upaupSnl.jpg

8.1 Van's Golf Cart?

Just got back from another Ocean Lakes weekend. As usual, the golf carts were pretty much everywhere you went. We always take ours. Whether you like that or not is a different story. But you do get to see some crazy styles of carts and the creativity people have in setting their cart apart from the rest. I was chilling on the patio when this cart passed by. I was barely able to get the camera up and get this one shot before it was gone. I tried to find it later but I never could. If 8.1 Van doesn't have a cart, this one would probably work for his tastes. http://i.imgur.com/EadTIkrl.jpg

RE: Sailun S637 tires

Fuzion has been using Sailuns for a couple of years now. A wise choice.

RE: Anyone running BFG All Terrain KO2's on their truck?

I used to run a set of KO2s on my work truck: 2013 F350. Good, quiet tire until 25,000 miles and they were completely worn out. Discount Tire helped me out on a new set of Coopers. The KO2s wearing out early was becoming well known.

RE: Tiffen Fifth wheel Vilano

"Whether it's kayaks one weekend or a 16 foot sand rail next, Vanleigh has a floor plan layout for all of your adventures." This line is on their product page on the website. I guess you put the sand rail on the roof? I still like it and would strongly consider their toy hauler if they do it in the future.

RE: Tiffen Fifth wheel Vilano

I'm assuming this is the Vanleigh Vilano? That's what I get when I do a Google search. That Vilano does look quite impressive. How about that 375 with six slides? I'll wait until I see a toy hauler in their line-up.

RE: I am so MEAN! :(

I have you beat, I was running the weedeater near the mailbox and scared 6 baby bunnies out into a busy highway. I ran out and saved 4. We won't discuss the other 2. :( I ran over one with a mower one time. :( As for weedeating? Why do frogs always think its safe to jump out of their hole RIGHT when I'm crossing over with the trimmer? Once you hit one once with a trimmer, you'll always recognize that solid yet soft "thud" the next time you do it. And the next time. And the next time. :?

RE: NON interstate from Carlisle, PA to Ft. Lauderdale, FL

If you're going in the off-season, why not just do 17 the majority of the way? See some beach sights. Eat some shrimp. No hurries.

RE: How do you like your 2017 Ford 350 Dually?

Probably going to place an order tomorrow for the F450 and upgrade from my 2016 F350 4X2. How is your bed clearance and camper height since the F450 is about 3 inches taller If you haven't ordered your new truck yet, you might want to check Ricart Ford first. Just Google Ricart Ford in Columbus, Ohio. I was going to order a truck but all three dealers in Raleigh couldn't even guess when it would arrive or even if it would arrive. Ford is supposedly way behind in demand and F450s aren't the biggest seller so they just aren't making too many. I had certain options I insisted on and Ricart Ford had a truck exactly as if I had ordered one. Did the deal over the phone and two days later, it was in my driveway back in NC. Their website says they still have 17 F450s left. 42 F350s.

RE: How do you like your 2017 Ford 350 Dually?

There's a camera on the tailgate and a camera on the brake light above the cab. You can pick which one to use at any time as long you're going about 5 mph or below. The camera on that brake light looks right down on your fifth wheel hitch. The side mounted cameras look at the ground around the truck. Their purpose is primarily for safety around the truck itself.

RE: How do you like your 2017 Ford 350 Dually?

Probably going to place an order tomorrow for the F450 and upgrade from my 2016 F350 4X2. How is your bed clearance and camper height since the F450 is about 3 inches taller That was a huge concern for me as well. The top of the bed on both the F350 and F450 is the same; even though the 450 has the 19.5 wheels. But the bed's are deeper. I'm using my old Reese hitch from my former 2015 F350 that Ford sells for the fifth wheel prep package. On my F350, I had the hitch in the middle height setting. So before I even put it in the F450, I raised it to the top height setting. Everything is perfect and the camper sits level. I haven't measured but I'd say I have at least 6" of clearance. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v357/lawnspecialties/DSC07113_zpsszfs4kzz.jpg

RE: Who here is tandem towing?

Here in the southeast, its not allowed in the vast majority of states. That being said, I too am seeing it more and more. Last week at Ocean Lakes in Myrtle Beach, I witnessed several tandem set-ups. Ocean Lakes is a HUGE golf cart populated campground. Over 800 sites and at least half have golf carts I imagine. I saw multiple campers with trucks, the camper, and the utility trailer for a golf cart. One day, I saw a guy leaving with his truck, his travel trailer, and his utility trailer with a golf cart. Rarely see the travel trailers pulling another trailer but it seemed to be pulling just fine. As has been mentioned, I have never seen one pulled over or heard of such by the law.

RE: How do you like your 2017 Ford 350 Dually?

I'm a little different than Travlingman. I don't care for all the gadgets and gizmos as much. I probably just ain't as used to it. My 2015 was great. Lots of features but simple. I hate the adaptive cruise so I turned it off. But of course, every time I use my cruise, I have to acknowledge I know the adaptive cruise is off. I don't like the adaptive steering. Makes the steering seem harder to turn at slow speeds but not a huge deal. The camera system is really cool. Love that 360 view. Power so huge, I could pull every camper at the campground all at the same time. But like Travlingman, the 4.30 is even more overkill. But that's the necessity of the F450. Wish I could get the F450 but with a 3.73. Would I do it again? Absolutely. But if Ford had allowed me to be a test pilot, I'd have changed or deleted things. But that's just me and others may love some features I don't care for. I'm guessing the F350 is the same here. But I have a 48 gallon stock fuel tank plus 7.5 gallons of DEF. Plus the rear hitch is rated to pull 21,000 lbs. without weight distribution. Well done Ford.

RE: Why campgrounds have gates.

We usually leave close to check out time which seems to usually be 11:00am. If someone pulled up checking in that early, too bad.

RE: Ford 6.2 F-350 4.3 rear end

Swing by your dealer and have them look. You can tell them all the options you're wanting and they can put that into the computer and it will tell them where those trucks are. Its how I found mine. I'm in NC. The truck was in Ohio. But it had all twelve options I wanted so that's where I went to get it.

RE: Ocean Lakes Family Campground - HOLY GOLF CARTS!!!!!!

Holy Golf Carts? How about holy being packed in tighter than a Bulls butt in fly season? I was totally unfamiliar with this place, but checked it out after reading through this thread. The wife has been wanting to camp at a beach location for a few years but this will not be the place. I guess if it floats your boat have at it. Personally I don't get it. Some of those pads are less than 12' from the next. I am thinking condo or hotel and flying down, the hell with that place and places like it. http://i.imgur.com/Q1BnR2cl.jpg Just returned from Ocean Lakes a couple of hours ago. As usual, had a blast. Just FYI. We were in HH11. That's the section right near the water park. I checked and my concrete pad was approximately 20' wide and a little over 50' long. The grassy area between us and the next pad was about 25' wide. More than enough room to park the golf cart and then beside it was the F450. For those who think the carts are too much and the sites are too small, no problem. That just means more available spaces for the rest of us. Happy camping. By the way. We're going back in less than three weeks. :)
