I suggest a drive just a little south to Chincoteague Island in VA. We've stayed several times at Tom's Cove CG on Chincoteague, with a short 7 mile drive across the channel bridge to Assateague National Seashore every day for the beach experience. Tom's Cove has plenty of sites for the vacation crowds, many with FHU.
Johnny Appleseed's real name was John Chapman. In ancient England, a "chapman" was a peddler, traveling from town to town, selling pots and pans. Fast forward to the Disney cartoons with Johnny Appleseed's character shown wearing;) an upturned sauce pan as his hat. . . ;)
In watching the Ford demonstration video, the truck-mounted rear-view camera allows for a view along the sides of the boat trailer and launch ramp. I can't imagine being able to see what's going on with a full-sized TT. I have an after-market camera on my TV. It's a great help when hitching up, but of no use when backing the camper. The only things visible are the hitch, power-jack, and propane tanks. I have sometimes wondered about a camera system mounted on the back of my camper. Might be worth it?
Surely my 2nd favorite holiday...
Be careful what you post....Hallmark will have a card for it next year....:B:B:B....Dennis
Now if we can just get it declared as a Federal Holiday, complete with Monday(s) off...:@
I pour some RV antifreeze in each of the sink/shower drains, to fill the P-traps and run some into the gray-water tank(s). Another gallon goes down the toilet. I don't worry about the cost of RV antifreeze vs. blue windshield washer fluid, this is an affordable insurance policy against the cost of potential damage from freezing/thawing. This is part of the assumed cost of RV ownership and the protection of our investment in this form of recreation.

"I did that when we stayed at a place with a nudist camp just down the road. I nose dived that plane into the lake after seeing 250 lb. 65 year old men playing volleyball and croquet."
Now that's an ugly image that will forever be burned into our retinas :S:S:S
Relived "youthful" memories while camping with my brother and SIL, my 83-yr. old dad, and DW. Returned to the same CG where we all camped 15-16 years ago while attending a family reunion on Labor Day. CG sponsored a bingo tournament, a "duck race", and a DJ dance with door prizes and a 50/50 drawing. Being "semi-retired", my DW and I could plan our travel times, with Dad as our guest, to avoid the nasty traffic problems Friday evening and Monday. CG was full, but we were in a relatively quiet area, neighbors and kids were very friendly. Considering Dad's age, and the fact that he's the only surviving parent/grandparent in any of our families, this weekend was all about spending some of this precious time we have remaining with him. Three nights of campfires, smores, dominoes, and visiting relatives ... he couldn't stop reliving how great the memories had always been, and what a great weekend this was. Here's a toast to holiday weekend memories, past, present, and hopefully, future!!!
