RE: AZ to NV, UT, ID, WY, CO and NM

I would stay at a KOA only as a last resort: too pricey for what you get. Can't generalize about all of them. I would stay at what fits your needs with secondary consideration to budget if possible. IMHO if it's where you want to be when you want to be there it's not too expensive. If we followed the "too expensive for what you get" philosophy for everything in life then there would be no "need" for anyone to get anything above a pop-up or a TT.

RE: Heartwarming story: couple weds for grandmother to witness

Read about that. It's nice to know there are still some that will put others first.

RE: Historic Triangle Virginia

Yup, one more for American Heritage. It was a number of years ago that we stayed but I remember it was almost 100 degrees. Mentioned at the front desk this "pasty white Yankee" was dying from the heat. They immediately moved us to a premium shaded spot at no extra charge. Staff are some of the best we've ever met.

RE: Toby is now waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge

Sorry for your loss. No matter what it's never easy. As hard as it was you did the right thing.

RE: It sure is complicated.

Sometimes life over complicates things. Yes, indeedy! Totally agree on the one step forward, two steps back. But occasionally it's three steps forward and only one back!

RE: Upset with Bass Pro mail order

Something to watch out for when ordering online and they are offering free shipping is to make sure you have clicked on the right shipping button. I know it sounds obvious but sometimes it defaults to the NOT free shipping button. I've had this happen on a number of sites.

RE: It sure is complicated.

They over complicate things because they think their way is better not because they dont know how. Sometimes yes, sometimes no. And maybe for them it IS better. Not all brains work the same. Yes, people are ridiculing on this thread. It's all too common on this forum in general. IMHO the original post was an open invitation if not a direct solicitation to do just that. Look at the responses.

RE: 2018 TT has been deemed Total Loss by insurance company

Could you possibly rent a cabin/trailer at a campground for the 4th? I'm sure availability is tight but it might salvage the week. Just a thought.

RE: Upset with Bass Pro mail order

Why do you automatically it's bait and switch? Sounds like it was an honest mistake. When you ship thousands of orders daily one may slip through the cracks.

RE: baltimore to cape cod

May not like this, but if not driving after Midnight - then the only easy way is to Fly. Seriously? It's just traffic. Driving in the wee hours of the morning is not necessarily safe. I totally understand trying to avoid the worst of it and this area has lots of it but anyone who's afraid to drive in traffic probably shouldn't have an RV. Kind of defeats the purpose of having one. Have taken the Newburgh-Beacon bridge as well and it's not a bad route. Sometimes it is the less-traveled route. Biggest thing is to just be patient.

RE: baltimore to cape cod

Do you plan on doing the drive in one day? If so by the time you get there traffic SHOULD have alleviated to the point of no issue getting over the bridge. If you are staying somewhere overnight then Sunday going over usually isn't a big deal. When we head south we always avoid NYC by going down 84 to 287/87 to 78. Going the other way I would probably go up 83 to whatever way may be easiest to get to Allentown then pick up 78 from there and then up via 287/87 going over the Tappan Zee Bridge (toll). 84 connects with the Mass Pike, take that to 495 south to the Cape. There may be easier ways to cut across so you don't have to go all the way up to the Pike that I am not familiar with but they are mostly smaller highways that will have a fair amount of local traffic.

RE: Mi to Acadia and Bay of Fundy New Brunswick

There is a big hill coming out of Fundy National Park heading down to Alma. Indeed there is! Big rigs do navigate it frequently but it does require breaks be in good working order. OP has a TT and a truck so he should have no issues.

RE: It sure is complicated.

Camping is not rocket science,but there is certainly a learning curve. Bingo. Many of you forget that you, too, had to learn at some point. Just because someone doesn't pick up on something right away does not mean they don't have common sense-it just means they haven't learned it yet. Yes, some do over-complicate things but I'd say the majority of the time it's not because they want to, it's just they don't know any better-yet. I am always amazed at how fast people on here are to ridicule others who are less experienced than they are. Pride goeth before the fall. Uppity attitudes about how stupid others are be it at set-up, break down, the boat launch, backing in a unit etc. should be replaced with "I remember". Indeed there are some people who just won't get it but they, too, should not be scorned. Karma hurts.

RE: Mi to Acadia and Bay of Fundy New Brunswick

1. Acadia is crowded starting Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day with crowds winding down until foliage season. If you must visit over the summer visit the park during the week. 2. Bar Harbor KOA is a great kick-off point for Acadia. It is a little further out and expensive but they do lobster bakes and pancake breakfasts in the campground. There are lots of activities in the cg as well. 3. You can whale watch out of Bar Harbor as well. The run a cat boat (catamaran, dual hull) which is quite stable. 4. From a location standpoint, I'd recommend staying in Fundy National Park. Your trailer should fit in Headquarters Campground. Look up the reviews-last time we were there (maybe 8 years or so ago) it was looking a little run down. 5. Visit Hopewell Rocks in Hopewell Cape https://www.thehopewellrocks.ca/index.php/en/home. Pay attention to the tide charts. 6. Go to Moncton and view the tidal bore. 7. For a hokey attraction go to Magnetic Hill in Moncton. It's an illusion that you are going backwards uphill. There is an amusement park near there as well https://www.magicmountain.ca/. 8. Be sure to visit the town of Alma just outside Fundy National Park. Their peanut butter cookies and sticky buns are wonderful!

RE: Interstate 95

If I take I-84 to 495 to 95 to Bar Harbor, will I run into any issues with bridges or tunnels with height issues, or places I can't bring propane? Would this route be completely, crazily busy? 1. No issues with bridges, tunnels or propane on that route. 2. Busy depends on timing. Weekends are nuts in general-Friday/Saturday going north and Sunday going south are particularly bad. What is your planned timing?

RE: Cracked/raw pads

Thx, 3boxers. There's a TSC right up the street and a WalMart not far away. I remembered it was something like that but it just wan't coming into my brain!
