RE: Where do you put the big cabelas recline chairs

Ours (2) fit beside the bed with cargo blanket over them to protect wall and bed. When we get to camp, they go out the bedroom door and get setup next to the trailer under the awning. After wiping off the chair legs, ours are placed on top of our front queen bed. They're heavy enough that they've never moved during our travels. After laying out the camping mats, they are brought out and placed under the awning. At night, they are folded and tucked under the kitchen slide-out to protect against overnight rain or dew.

RE: Towing in the snow

Aside from the control issues, one should also consider the potential damage caused by salt/chemical road treatment to the underbelly materials, water/sewage/LP gas lines, and trailer frame. These trailer components are not painted or treated with the same paints or undercoating as used in the auto/truck industry. The road salt, sand, and cinders may also accumulate and interfere with the operation of sewer drain valves and electric brake mechanisms on which we are so dependent.

RE: Columbus Ohio

X3 on Alum Creek SP. We've stayed here two times. Sites are all cut back into the trees, offering a visual privacy screen from neighboring sites. Drawbacks include a somewhat limited access to shower houses, and sources to fill your FW tank. Access the campground map to select a site which you feel is conveniently located near the showers. Water stands in each CG section do not offer a threaded spigot. FW with a threaded spigot is available at an approved potable water service next to the dump station. These are located near the entrance to the park. Cross Creek is nice, but if your planning on activities at the zoo and COSI, you might not have the time to take full advantage of the added amenities offered there. As you might expect, these amenities come at a higher cost than the SP campground.

RE: Whatcha doin this weekend?

Reservations at our local Ohio SP, about 5 miles from home. But... Our first grandson will be born very soon!:) DIL is scheduled to start induced labor tomorrow morning. Fortunately, the hospital is only 20 minutes away. We'll be able to shuttle back and forth very easily. What an exciting and wonderful way to spend another adventure in our retirement.

RE: Power while hooked up to TV

Good reason for two 12-volt deep cycle batteries.

RE: Question....about retirement...

I am seriously thinking about retiring December (67 yo) and hate my job and bosses. The problem is What the heck will I do? My kind of day is looking like this... 8-10am coffee and breakfast 10am - drive to golf or fishing or gym 1100am arrive at one of them... Golf will kill 5 hours / Fishing maybe 4 hours / gym maybe 2 hours so get home between 1pm and 4pm.... So then what???????????? do a few honey do's for maybe 2 hours... Then what??? Set and watch TV until 11pm?????? Help What is your average day like...? Now that you are professionally retired. You're trying to set a fixed schedule for every retirement day? Why? I'll bet this may be part of the reason you "hate your job and bosses". In my dictionary, "retirement" is from an obscure language that translates as "relax". You'll have no time clock to punch, no bosses to answer to, and no paperwork to file (except in the bathroom). My "average" day gets me out of bed when I can't sleep. During the winter months, I go snow skiing 3-4 days a week, with or without my buddies. It's a 2-hour drive, but worth the time outdoors in the fresh air with friends on the mountain. Now that my DW has retired, we spend time in our TT when and where we want, 32 nights since Memorial Day. This is the part of "from this day forward" we promised each other in our marriage vows 35 years ago.

RE: Ahhhhh...retirement

Best gig we've ever had! Wake up every morning with no where we have to go, and nothing we have to do, but we have all day to get there and get it done. I retired 20 months ago, DW just retired (a second time) about 2 months ago. Our travel plans are now made up as we go. Reserved a site for 5 nights at a local SP over the July 4th weekend, spent lots of time watching a local American Legion baseball team win a huge tournament, and extended our stay another 4 nights just because we could. Living close by, we ran home to do laundry. Checked out from the SP CG and drove north to an 8-night vacation stay at Cedarlane RV Park near Port Clinton, OH and the Lake Erie Islands. Before leaving, the DW came up with the idea to stop off in Ohio's Amish country. Reservations were easily available at Evergreen RV Resort, in Mt. Eaton, OH. Learning that this oppressive "heat wave" was in store, we returned home to our S&B. This is the part of "To have and to hold, from this day forward" that we've waited so long for. The great "icing on the cake" is the anticipation of the arrival of our first grandson over the Labor Day weekend. We'll be able to easily leave our local SP CG for that glorious "labor" day!

RE: Is this something RV'ers would use?

Who, among the active camper community, has a spare empty space in which to store and use such a contraption? OTOH, the soap nuts are available at Lehman's Hardware Store in Kidron, OH, a supplier of non-electric goodies commonly found in the Amish communities of Wayne and Holmes counties. Prices are lower than those of this website.

RE: National Parks trip

Great article can be found in the August issue of Trailer Life magazine, pages 38-42, written by Lisa Ballard. I'm sure it will address most of your questions. It provides an excellent account of a similar trip on US Rte 89, north through Wyoming and Montana (also known as the National Park Highway). This route takes you through Grand Teton, Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. The author provides excellent advice on where to stay, things to do, and a list of those things you need to know before you go (permits, maps, and fuel stop recommendations). Trailer Life offers tempting travel destination trips in each and every issue. Not all are practical, or of interest to me, but Mrs. Ballard has succeeded in adding this trip to my bucket list!
