RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

Our RV is our home, but we are slowly heading north to our upstate NY family cottage where we'll hunker down for awhile until things settle down. We're currently near Savannah, GA and are not concerned at all about passing through the seven states we'll traverse on our way to NY from Florida. Since we'll be calling the cottage "home" for this purpose, if asked, we'll just say we can't obey a stay home order until we get home. This is why so many people are going to die unnecessarily in the US. We've been raised all our lives to think that our country is the exception to everything, and that we as individuals are exceptions to every rule. :h Huh? I don't understand. They are traveling alone, evidently not mingling with people. They are going to a cottage to be alone. How much better of social distancing can you get? How are people going to die unnecessarily because they are actually staying away from others? Something to think about when you stand in line for a pack of TP with 1000 other people breathing on you.

RE: Anyone lose a set of keys

If he would have left them, someone would have posted saying "I left my keys by accident at a I95 rest stop" OP woulda said he found them and the cranks would have ragged on him for leaving them behind. Mike Exactly what I was thinking. Too many people think the way would handle is the right way and immediately judge others. There is no right way to handle this, and there is no wrong way to handle this. And lots of rest areas do not have attendants, and finding a LEO or a station is often more than inconvenient. That said do what you feel is best and go from there.

RE: Coronavirus

Here's a good web site if you are interested in how and where this is spreading. It's interesting the same precautions being encouraged are the same ones for preventing any virus. https://www.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6

RE: Advice on Campgrounds

https://www.smokybearcampground.com/ We liked this place for visiting Gatlinburg- stayed there 4 nights a couple years ago. It's close enough to area attractions, groceries, and the great Smokey Mountains scenery. X2 for Smokybear. 20 minutes east of Gatlinburg, yet away from the congestion and chaos that is Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Excellent hosts, and a hot tub!

RE: Who is responsible for discounts?

It is the customer's responsibility to ask for any applicable discounts. No question there. However good, no excellent, customer service dictates that the question be asked by the counter attendant during check in. Anticipate the customer's needs and knock their socks off.

RE: Karaoke & Sing-along around Campfires

I've never heard anyone doing karaoke. But back when we tented there was often someone with a guitar, sometimes 2, playing and having sing alongs. Tenting is just different. You spend almost all of your time outside, even if it's raining. With an RV you have another option. We still spend a lot of time outside. We do most of our cooking over a campfire. But also don't mind going inside if it's really cold out and watching a movie.

RE: Latest Windows 10 Update Help

Stop shutting it down. Let it finish. Occasionally they can take a while. We're pushing out 1903 to 1700 machines. In our testing some rebooted in 30 minutes. some took 90 minutes. Most finished in 45 minutes.

RE: What ever happened to RV Park Reviews?

The new site works just fine for me. It's just different. Not hard to get around at all. Loads just fine for me. It's certainly more graphical than it used to be. Try clearing your browser cache if it's not loading at a reasonable speed. Also try a different browser. Don't bother with Edge. Edge sucks.

RE: What kind of RPM's do you get? What about MPG?

Too many factors involved to make a blanket statement. When I had my Trailblazer and a 3500# GVWR hybrid, I got 11 pretty regularly at 2600 RPM in 3rd gear. When I started towing the X20E (4750# GVWR) in my sig with the same Trailblazer I got 8-9. When I got the Sierra I get 10 mpg regularly at 2400 RPM towing the same X20E. In other words different combos will give different results. I've never been concerned about either RPMs or mileage. RVing is not cheap. I only monitor mileage because diminished mileage over time can indicate potential issues. But generally speaking you can figure somewhere between 8-12 mpg depending on the combo.

RE: Traveling in a group— How do you handle it?

Over the years, we’ve done ‘em all: stay in sight, separate but radios, separate but cell phones, just cars, trucks, towing, you name, we’ve done it. My opinion and preference is whatever your comfort level, but there are reasons God gave us radios and cell phones and allowed us to decide in advance where to meet up. Momma ain’t happy, nobody’s happy. So let the wives drive the first leg sticking together like glue. If that doesn’t resolve the question, maybe it’s the wrong question. This is pretty much us. It really depended on who we traveled with. Never got stressed out over it no matter which way we did it. It's vacation, don't be in a rush, relax and enjoy. The ride is a big part of the fun. If you feel you're going to be stressed out about being sight of one another, it doesn't mater what we say, do what makes you feel comfortable.

RE: Would You Camp at a Place Like This??

Full hookups and no crowded sardine can campsites. In other words privacy and quiet. An hour drive is no big deal. Go anywhere away from cities in most states and everything is an hour drive from most CGs anyways. Could be worth it. Are there any reviews on these? No WiFi would be somewhat of an issue. Otherwise most other amenities are just fluff. Even when our daughter was a kid we stayed away from tourist traps like KOAs. State parks and COAs were always the preference.

RE: Just sold the hybrid after 10 years.

Congratulations! We kept our previous hybrid for 10 years. We're planning to keep our current one at least that long. But the next trailer will not be a hybrid for the same reason you cite.

RE: Just 13 threads

Newest used to show 5 pages of every thread updated most recently. Obviously that's changed. Many threads continue to be very active well after they disappear off the "newest" pages.

RE: Question about PC's..

X2 on knowing what she's doing with it. Working from remote location? Just email and social media? If it's just the latter I'd be considering a tablet like a Samsung Galaxy Tab A. Not real expensive, crazy easy to use, and very capable. My wife has a Samsung tablet and hasn't used a laptop in years. She loves the ease of use and portability.

RE: Zoning Law

As said you will need to find out what the local laws are. Your alderperson may know already know the answer or be able to point you in the right direction. Often you can do this if you live in a rural area sometimes just getting a permit for it. But in more populated areas it is considered a dwelling if used in this way. Often the best you can do is call the police dept and say someone is staying by you for a week or two. Usually you can't go beyond that.

RE: New Source of TV While on the Road

Now, with our Verizon unlimited data plan, from ANYWHERE, Tim Try that in the Kewenaw Peninsula in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Pretty much no cell service for any provider north of Houghton/Hancock. :B Pretty neat way to watch TV though. When we had TimeWarner I thought about something similar when they came out with their watch anywhere app.

RE: My Amazing 12-year old battery...

That's kind of neat. The original battery in my HHR lasted for 10 years. Even then it only showed weakness when the temps dropped to -20 and sitting for a couple of days. I replaced it.

RE: Read Aloud Books -- follow the bouncing ball

That's a great idea. It's a wonder someone doesn't have an app for a tablet that does this. Maybe there is? That said it's wonderful that you are exposing them to books and trying to do so while traveling. Much better than putting videos in front of them and letting them zone out.

RE: Illinois state park alcohol rules

Having camped in Shabbona Lake State Park and Rock Cut State Park, I can attest to the fact that if it's not obvious no one will bother you. As said use cups that aren't see through and don't have a wild party and you'll be just fine. The law is to keep out the riffraff. Also the IL state parks budget is nearly nil. So you may not even see a ranger while you're there.

RE: The smell of a dead mouse..

x2 on o zone. X3. I haven't had to use one for dead mouse odor, yet. But I've been told that's the only way to get rid of the smell. Even if you can find there is a residual small for a while.
