Did anyone here ever see the movie "The Grapes of Wrath"? This is what you get when you crowd too many transients into too small of space and provide little or no service.

RE: Put too much oil in, Problem?

The biggest enemy an engine has is "foaming" of the oil, which occurs when the oil level us high enough so that the crank hits the surface and churns the oil into foam, or there is too much oil for the pump to handle effectively. Instead of pumping a fluid stream of oil, the pump delivers a foam, made mostly of air, mixed with oil. When that occurs, the viscosity (thickness) of the oil is reduced, basically to the thickness of water, and is squeezed out from the bearing surfaces. Even 1/2 quart overfilled CAN produce this effect, especially in today's faster RPM engines. Ya pays ya monies, ya takes ya chances.

RE: What to see/do & where to stay in Rhode Island

Take the Newport mansion tour, go to Point Judith and eat some clam fritters at Eggys chowder house, then take the ferry to Block island. Fisherman's memorial is a very nice state park if they aren't full. In addition to these suggestion and the ones above, Providence has some great restaurants in Little Italy. After dinner you can go down to the river and see "WaterFire"

RE: Oak Ridge Tn Campground

I had to do some training in Oak Ridge a couple of years ago and I stayed at Caney Creek RV Resort in Harriman, TN. Don't know where in Oak Ridge you have to go to, but for me my commute was 25 miles. But it was all on I-40 and easy commute. Stayed on Site 42, which backed up to Caney Creek. http://i.imgur.com/SAcSdK2l.jpg

RE: What's the price "tipping point" for you?

I'm on vacation, going to where I want to go. The destination, not the price, is what the driving factor is for me.

RE: Niagara Falls Area Campgrounds

If you need full hookups: Branches of Niagara Grand Island KOA If you can deal with electric only: Four Miles Creek State Park There are a couple of others in the area, but they are only good if you just passing through.

RE: More about drinking water safety

The dependency on bottled water that has been generated by the makers of bottled water, and rumors and innuendo of illness that has been spread by social media, is just another sign of the wussification of America. America is not some third world spit hole where there are no safety regulations on water.

RE: Campgrounds in Yellowstone...to reserve ahead or not?

If you want to go to a place, why wouldn't you want to reserve a spot, especially in peak season?

RE: New England, New Brunswick, Quebec, Nova Scotia

The people of Quebec City know where their income comes from and will extend themselves to speak English. Montreal, not so much. I used to be a fire fighter and I would always stop at a firehouse in whatever city I was in to get information on the local points of interest. I went to the main firehouse in Montreal and ran into a firefighter on the apparatus floor. I said Hi and asked "parlez vous English?" (that's the end of my French) He returned with the question " parlez vous francais?". When I replied in the negative, he said to me, in English, that he would not talk to me and walked away. Luckily another fire fighter witnessed this and went and found someone that did speak English. He was happy to speak to me because he was trying to improve his English. I have several other examples where I had problems with the language barrier. But Montreal is a nice city. If you get a chance, investigate the Bay of Fundy. It has some beautiful scenery and it is know for the largest tidal range (vertical difference between the high tide and the succeeding low tide) in the world. Depending on where you are, it can be between 35 -50 feet. The St. John River flows through the City of St. John NS and it has what is called the "reversing falls". Nova Scotia is kind of stark, but pretty. It looks like they are changing the provincial parks to self service and laying off or cutting back on park employees. ((clicky)

RE: Heading to Camden Yards, need advise on campground

The intent is to visit D.C. by day and Camden Yards by night. That's probably not doable if you really want to see DC. No matter where you stay it's at least 45 minutes to an hour in and an hour out of DC on public trans. And another 45 minutes to an hour in and out for Baltimore. Visiting DC, while small, will consume a lot of time if you really want to see it all. That being said, Cherry Hill is a good selection. Baseball games start at 7:30. OP could tour DC 8-5 and still make it to the game. They can try it if they want. I'm just saying that its going be a long day. Up at 6:00 to catch METRO at 7:00. Whirlwind touring till 4:30. Go back pick up the car. Go to game and get out at 10:30. Home by 11:30. Rinse. Repeat. Don't know if they have a three game stand. Heck of a pace. Don't know how many days I could do it. :) Sounds like a classic Walt Disney World schedule.. if you ask my wife and check her plans, at least! :D I think my schedule would be "Okay kids, be back here when you get tired. I will be waiting here." :B

RE: Outer Banks in Oct & Nov

I agree with Jerry & Jeanne, if you want to get away from the organized rat race, go to either Camp Hatteras or the Hatteras KOA. Very relaxing. Camp Hatteras is on either side of the highway. You can get water view sites on the Pamlico Sound side.
