RE: Which park

I haven't been to the other 2, but have been to Huntington Beach.It has open and shaded sites.Some are water and electric, some are full hookup. It's a short walk to the beach. They have a store and great nature programs both in the Nature Lodge and outside. We were there over Christmas and they even had a nature program Christmas Day. It's just south of Murrel's Inlet were there are some good restaurants. We enjoyed Drunken Jack's.

RE: Houston toll roads

When we were in Ft Worth area, there were toll lanes. We didn't want to take them but GPS put us on those routes. We never got a bill. Different system I guess.

RE: New Hampshire to Yellowstone

We just returned from a trip to Texas from Pa. We had reservations going down and back and glad we did. Many campgrounds were full or nearly full even during the week. If you want a little side trip, Harold Warp's Pioneer Museum in Minden, Nebraska is great.If you like history,cars,motorcycles,snow mobiles or tractors, they have it in spades. There is a campground next to the museum. When we went, they had a deal.If you stayed at the campground you got one free ticket to the museum.

RE: Trip to Texas

I hear a lot of people say they have trouble getting reservations. I had no problem getting reservations anywhere. My destination reservations were made two months ahead of time. But the one stops coming and going were made about 2 weeks before leaving. I guess if you want reservations in the summer,holiday and on weekends it's an issue. But i had no problems. Some of the campgrounds were fairly full but others had plenty of spots.

Trip to Texas

We recently came back from a 2 week trip to Texas from Pennsylvania. We went down 81 to 40 to 30 to 35 south to San Antonio. Our first stop was Warriors Path State Park in Tennessee. Not bad for a one night stop and no to far off I-40. Next stop was Natchez Trace SP. Someone on here recommended it and thank you very much as it was very nice.Full hookups with a nice lake view.We stopped there going and coming. Next night was Beard's Bluff campground on Millwood Lake. It's a Federal Campground about 20 miles off I-30 but we had a nice site with water and electric for $7.50 a night with Senior Pass. Normally $15. They say the fishing is great but the lake has lot's of gators so no swimming. Next night Fairview Lake State Park. Very nice Texas SP with water and electric.Way off the interstate. Our destination was Potters Creek Campground on Canyon Lake. This is another nice Federal Campground. We had water and electric. Half price with Sr Pass. Very nice location kind of between Austin and San Antonio. On the way back we stayed at Sherando Lake which is another Federal Campground with electric only. About 20 miles off I-81 but very nice. Only issue we had was a blowout on the trailer on I-40 east of Knowville. It seems you only get flats on the side of your vehicle which faces traffic and no one slows down or moves over. We had Good Sam Road Service.

RE: Glacier National Park starting ticketed Entry

We were recently in San Antonio and needed advance tickets to see the Alamo. You can download them to your email and show it on your phone. Real easy.

RE: Blue Ridge Parkway - Early April

Be advised that portions of the parkways are closed. We wanted to go up the parkway south of Roanoke up to Sherando Lake but it was closed. I looked at the website for the campgrounds and there was no notices of closure on the parkway there. You must go to Blue Ridge Parkway Road Closures to find where they are at.

RE: Nashville is flooded.

We drove through Nashville on our way to Texas a few days before the storms. I saw that they had flooding so we took the bypass that goes way around Nashville and had no problem.

RE: Trying to decide on whether or not to purchase-DECISION

We just went to Texas on a 15 day trip from Pennsylvania.I booked a few weeks ahead but had no trouble getting sites. That was Mid march to April 2nd.We stayed exclusively at state and federal campgrounds.We have a dog too. We usually take her with but have left her in the trailer for up to 6 hours. She's a Black Lab and is well behaved. We have taken her in the canoe too. People who say they can't find sites are usually looking for sites on summer weekends or holidays.Yes, those will be booked early. We usually leave on a Sunday and come back on a Thursday or Friday which makes it easier to get a site. We also try to go in spring and fall. I can tell you even in March, most of the campgrounds were fairly full, but we had no trouble getting sites.We are not fussy about hookups. We usually like to have at least electric but have stayed at a site with no hookups on occassion. RV's are self contained so you don't need hookups if you know how to conserve. In those sites without hookups, we usually take a Honda generator to charge batteries and so my wife can use microwave or blow dryer.So don't make excuses, do it while you have the chance. I've been camping for over 50 years and love it.

RE: toll charges

Thanks---I found the site to calculate the fees. From what I've seen, this might be an alternative for travel south. We don't have toll roads here in the frozen North Idaho area, so I'm not familiar with how they work. Our roads are "paved - unpaved." Also, from what I've gathered, the toll roads around the U.S. don't have a real agreement for a pass that can be used freely across the states. Maybe Congress could address issues like this, but I'm sure they have more "important" things to do. Thanks again........ You're welcome. If you hate tolls as much as I do, don't come to my home state of PA. With the fuel taxes near the top of the nation, they are proposing adding tolls on many more bridges. The whole northeast has a network of toll roads that are nothing more than added expense for everything and they wonder why business is moving south. You mention congress, yes we have interstate highways funded in large part by the federal but many of these bridges are interstates that the state wants to tax (toll). Haha. We're from Berks County and heading to Texas next week. First stop will be Winchester, Virginia to fill up with diesel which is about 40 cents a gallon cheaper. With the Flying J card it's 8cents cheaper so that's almost 50 cents. Our state sucks with all the taxes we pay and the Pa turnpike is the most expensive toll road in the world.

RE: Keystone Rant

We have a Keystone Cougar and love it. I remember when the Outbacks came out, they looked nice in a magazine.But when we went to see one at an RV show the workmanship didn't suit us. If you ever saw a picture of an RV being built, they start with the floor and build everything around it. How they could replace the floor and put it back together correctly is beyond me.

RE: Maine to Yellowstone

I would recommend Harold Warp's Pioneer Museum in Minden,Nebraska. If you like history,old cars,trucks,tractors ,motorcycles, this place has it in spades. They have a campground by the museum and you get a free ticket to the museum with one night of camping.It's about 10 miles south of I-80.

RE: campground reservations

We're going to Texas the end of march.Since weekends are harder to get, I made the reservation for the destination 3 months prior.I made the last of the overnight reservations coming and going yesterday.

RE: Nebraska Rt. 2

Years ago, we took 385 south from South Dakota across Rt2 then RT83 down into North Platte. The roads were all good. The only thing I remember at that time was gas stations were few and far between.
