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.

RE: RV Park Reviews

Same here. I had a bad experience in a large Myrtle Beach RV park, complete with lying employees and management that couldn't be bothered. Posted the facts and was told that RVPR didn't believe me. Despite having multiple reviews already on site. I came to the conclusion that the worst of the reviews are quashed to either protect them legally or because their business depends on Sunshine Happy Faces. Keep in mind that for a long time the site was moderated by a group of full timers that only worked on approving reviews occasionally. There was a point when it could take a couple of weeks to see a review approved and posted. There were some during that time period that were heavy handed. A single spelling mistake would get the review kicked. And for some odd reason certain negative reviews were rejected also. Didn't make a lot of sense because I posted some negative stuff around the same time period and had no problem. But that stopped a long time ago and the past few years have been pretty good. IMO if your letting reviews on that site steer you away from certain campgrounds you're probably avoiding some really nice ones. There are plenty with mediocre reviews that are really nice places, but because Joe Blow could not get his 92' rig into a 30' site, had to put a 2X under a tire to level and seen a fly in the showerhouse he chastised the park. That's true of any reviews on any product or service. Just have to learn to read between the lines and weed out the junk.

RE: F150 vs. stupidity

I saw that too. And now this person probably bashes Fords for not being good trucks.

RE: Getting cold {er} in southern Arizona...

Our winters may suck, but our summers are wonderful. While I'm out spending a day biking or hiking in the summer you poor Arizona folk are trying to stay at 80 indoors to avoid getting fried in 120 temps. :B

RE: RV Park Reviews

The site is working good again. It's different. A little weird getting around but it's all there. Still a good site.

RE: Gatlinburg and The Great Smoky Mountains

For any hiking anywhere in the park, get to the trailheads as early as possible otherwise parking is non-existent. By 9:00 am is too late.
