RE: Overnight Flying J

there are 2 Js there - diagonally across the intersection from each other. A better choice might be the little pancake restaurant/motel just north of the intersection on Welcome Way road or drive. truck parking and not a lot of business.

RE: Badlands n d

SD Badlands can and do get HOT, even in June. That said, it cools off pretty quickly and can be pleasant in early evening and night. Scenery is nice, but we grew tired after a day or so. Green is so much nicer.

RE: Fayetteville NC to Gulfport MS

If you take I-95 to I-20 and then I-20 to Atlanta, the route will take you for just a few miles on I-285 and then I-85 to Montgomery and I-65 to Mobile. Then to I-10 west. You really won't be in any of the 'Atlanta Traffic' that everyone is so frightened of. All of that is downtown and on 75 and 85 coming in from the north. I travel the I-20 route to I-285 very often and although it can get heavy in the early mornings, after about 10 AM it is just another drive. Same with the sort section of I-285. Just watch the signs and follow them to 85 SOUTH. Take the wrong exit and you will be 85 NORTH and headed to downtown. It is sort of interesting to drive under an active runway and taxiway as you pass the airport. Something like 10 lanes as you do this, so no worry.

RE: Yellowstone, Fishing Bridge RV park?

"I agree totally. The assets of the park are vastly under-developed. Think of the potential for not just some mega RV parks but for vast Hydroelectric and Geothermal energy projects. There is enough potential energy in those systems for the neighboring states to completely wean themselves from fossil fuel power plants. There is a tremendous amount of water in the Yellowstone ecosystem and the west continually suffers from drought. Piping all that water to where it is needed would be of great benefit. Also, there are areas directly adjacent to the park that teem with mineral mining. Gold, Platinum and other precious metals likely abound in the Yellowstone back country. They belong to the people of America. Allowing those scarce resources to go to unused is criminal. And why stop at RV parks? There is also a shortage of lodging in the park. A few high rise hotels could quickly be filled. Imagine the view, gazing at Old Faithful backlit by a Giant red Marriott sign...beautiful!. But why RV parks at all? Develop dispersed camping sites with full hookups instead. The park has nearly two million undeveloped acres. Finding some beautiful areas to put in a couple of sites would be easy. It would add so much to everyone's Yellowstone experience. I mean, who wouldn't want to climb a ridge or round a bend in the trail and come upon a camper with their laundry flapping in the breeze? Our national parks are one of America's last vestiges of prime undeveloped land. What a waste. " LOL!!!! Don't bite your tongue while you have it stuck in your cheek. Goog job!

RE: Paducah KY in June?

We've stay at Duck Creek several times. FHU and cable. New management in the last couple of years. Previous owner had MS and had to retire. Super nice guy

RE: Frustrating furnace issue

A safety issue. When the furnace reaches the set temp the flame stops but the fan continues to run until the combustion chamber cools enough to be safe. Likely nothing wrong and it is working correctly

RE: Beverly Beach Camptown Florida within Flagler Beach

Like Pirate, that place has sites entirely too close. Luckily when we were there the last time we had friends in another MH and could get along. Could not deal with a sweathog like Pirate describes. Too expensive for what you get

RE: Who is schooled in "Grease"? (Need some tough stuff)

I would start with a visit to the nearest heavy equipment grading company and see what they use

RE: Source of Macerator Pump for Trailer mounted Black Tank ?

If the dump opening into the ground tank is made of plastic, would it not be simpler to simply take a hacksaw and shorten it to ground level. When/if your contract is over, it is easy to use a coupling to glue the pipe to the original height.

RE: Dingy braking - do, did, or won't

Keep in mind the main rule of any insurance company is to find a way not to pay and leave you holding the bag. If you go without you better go through your insurance policy with a fine tooth comb and be able to understand all the insurance legal speak or you could loose everything you own. Where on your insurance policy do you find anything that even addresses the use of auxiliary braking? What company do you have? I want to research that - I may change companies.

RE: Atlanta Daytime Traffic?

You will likely be OK, Mondays and Fridays are usually busier than other days - Mondays - those coming back into town and Fridays those getting out of town. Lot of people live inside the loop but get out on weekends. With this being a holiday weekend I would guess it would be more coming back on Monday as well. Tuesday or Wednesday would be my choice - and I travel there regularly

RE: Looking for RV park west of Wash DC near train to city

Likely a little further out than what you require, but look at the Front Royal area. Several there and the scenery is much better. I don't know if there is any kind of commuter system there or not, but doubtful

RE: Fancy Gap

I might add this and Tom N will verify I'm sure. Some times when the wind is out of the east it can get sort of gusty and give you a scare as you hit open spaces in the road. The good thing is the uphill lane is the one usually affected and you will be going slow. The downhill (inside)lane is pretty much sheltered so there is not nearly as much turbulence when the gusts hit. Pretty much just a hill, just longer than some

RE: Mr Bud's Campground, GA

Mr Bud's is a trailer park, full of permanents that have all sorts of shelters and such built on it. I would not stay there. If it is closed I have not noticed. Want to experience that area, try Moccasin Creek SP just on up the road and on the lake

RE: Remote campsites?

Not in the motorhome, but we were elk hunting in Colorado a few years back with a group of friends. On the side of a mountain, way off the road between Rand and Walden. Squad tent with seven other guys. Cold as a witches heart and snow, but had a great time. I was cold from the time we arrived until we left 6 days later. Saw moose but no elk and we had no ticket for moose.

RE: Savannah, GA

Going to be a bit buggy, but anytime in the summer will be bugs below North Carolina, especially around the coast. Great place to see history and enjoy some pretty good food.

RE: Tampa RV Show Camping

We have stayed a few times at Camp Lemora (not sure on spelling). FHU on Dead River Road Thonotosassa, FL. US 41 about 20 minutes from the show. http://www.goodsamclub.com/travel/campgroundsandrvparks/generalinfo.aspx?cgid=830000371 Well worth the short drive

RE: winterizing question Low point drains open or closed

What kind of bugs, mud daubers or any other insects, present a danger when there are freezing temps enough to drain or add antifreeze?

RE: winter camping in the carolinas/florida?

I really don't have a dog in this fight, but take a look at Stephen Foster State Park in S Georgia (Okeefenokee Swamp). No mountain scenery for sure, but the swamp is beautiful with no mosquitos (well not many anyway :) ) in the winter. Fishing will be good for panfish. Alligators will be abundant but slow with the cooler weather. Raccoons will be plentiful. Snakes will be scarce because of the cool weather and the alligators eat them. You can rent a boat or a canoe and see what the swamp is all about and some of the history at Billy's Island when it was a thriving town. It will not be crowded and temps will be moderate. We have been several times and had a small rally there several years ago. There are also scheduled guided tours
