RE: A tale of two campgrounds

On our trip to Texas, we stayed at Natchez Trace and Warriors Path both Tennesse State parks. Natchez Trace was much nicer but that seemed to be because of the location of the park.Warriors Path was ok but not as scenic.

RE: Nowhere to go

Go during the week instead of on weekends.We usually go in the spring and fall and from a Sunday to Thursday.We almost always can find a site.

RE: Avoiding Nashville

I usually take 840 when traveling across the state. But I'm not sure if you can work that into your route since you're going more north to south.

RE: Atlanta

It's better to stay as far away from Atlanta as possible.

RE: Myrtle beach

Willow Tree is nice. But we loved Huntington Beach State Park which is about 15 miles south of MB. It has open and shaded sites.Has mix of FHU and water and electric.Short walk to the beach. Great nature programs. Close to Murrels Inlet which has some good restaurants like Drunken Jacks.You can visit the Huntingtons former mansion which is in the park and next door is Brookgreen Gardens.

RE: Traveling now with COVID 2.0 (Delta)

It really depends on your circumstances. If you have major health issues than you may want to stay home. Or go and try to stay isolated as much as possible and wear a mask and use sanitizer when you have to be in public.I have some health issues myself and will be 70 in a few months. I have been vaccinated and don't plan on letting this slow me down.

RE: Kayenta AZ Burger King - Code Talkers Still There?

I didn't know that was there. I have provided the sound for the speakers and entertainment at WWII Weekend in Reading,Pa for 23 years.One year they had one of the Code Talkers there.I got to listen to him tell his story and later on talked to him and his wife alone.My wife and I had to been to Canyon DeChelly which was the area he was from. He knew they man who was our tour guide. I remember him saying when he joined the Marines he was just a lowly private.But then some of the guys started calling him Chief.He joked that he thought he got a promotion!

RE: Campground Rates

We usually don't stay in commercial campgrounds for 2 reasons. 1 the high cost and 2 they jam you together. We much prefer state and federal campgrounds. And if you're 62 or older,the Senior Pass gets you a 50% discount on camping in all federal campgrounds ( National Parks, Army Corps of Engineers,BLM and Forest Service). We stayed at one in Arkansas that cost us $7.50 a night with water and electric! That was the cheapest but others are very reasonable.Usually Less than $20 a night with the pass. And they are nice campgrounds. Most we stayed at had at least electric hookups and some water and electric. A few have full hookups. The campgrounds are much more scenic too. State Parks vary depending on the state. Any where from $18 to $49 a night. So skip the commercial campgrounds and save money.

RE: Driving people to boondock by calling themselves a "Resort"

We almost never stay at private campgrounds anymore. One because of price,and one because they pack you in like sardines. We normally stay at state or federal parks. We have the Senior Pass which gives you free entry to any National Park or National Historic site. It also gives you half off camping at any Federal Campground. So we try to hit Forest Service or Army Corps of Engineers (COE).The lowest we paid was $7.50 a night for water and electric. The most we paid was $19 a night for water and electric and right on the lake. State Parks are usually more but generally in the $30 to $40 range. Sometimes you may have to drive 20 miles off the interstate,but for those prices it's worth it.Plus you have more room and a better view than in a commercial campground.

RE: I 70 in Ohio to Somerset PA staying off PA turnpike

Take I 70 until you get to the turnpike. Go over the turnpike on Rt 119. Take that to 22 east. Not sure how far you're going but that will get you to Harrisburg. Then you can pick up 81-N to I-78 and that will get you to Reading and Allentown.

RE: Sad state of national parks and forests - II

I don't know about California, but we have camped in many federal campgrounds including Forest Service, Army Corps of Engineers and national parks and haven't noticed what you have. Most of the campgrounds seemed to be well run. Could they use more money,sure. But the ones we have camped at in the east,south and southwest we're all in good shape.

RE: Beating the heat...

Have you tried Canyon Point Campground? We were there in 2018 in April and we had snow while Payson had rain. Higher elevation was cooler.

RE: Old Question

I have driven that twice. Once around 11pm and once at 4am and they were still bad. If I have to go that way again, I'll find away around it even if it means driving 50 miles out of my way.

RE: Transferring fresh water when dry camping

I bought a 12volt pump from Northern Tools.It has aligator clips that clip right onto the battery.I have a 5 gallon container that I pump out of into my onboard tank. But you can pump out of anything.

RE: Interstate highway conditions

We build beautiful roads and bridges in other countries, just not our own. In our 50 States road contracts go out to the lowest bidder who has to use the cheapest asphalt, the quickest methods and the lowest paid workers to get the contract. Roads fall apart as soon as they are built. In Europe they use high-grade asphalt with rubber bits to keep the pavement from cracking and falling apart, they do not hire the cheapest bidder. Their roads look like Main Street Disneyland. Ours are terrible. Our pavement ends at the white line, pavement needs to extend wider than the road as water damage occurs because there lacks margins. Many many problems You're wrong about a number of things.If the work you are doing is federally funded, you must pay prevailing wage and benefits.The asphalt is tested for temperature when it goes in. The feds will sometimes audit your company to make sure those wages and benefits make sure they meet federal standards.Most of the work done on interstate is done by union shops and their work is pretty high quality.And they do not have to use the lowest bidder if that contractor had issues in the past.Europe's roads are better.But remember, a lot of people take the train. Their train system blows our away.And, their cars are mostly smaller and lighter. I fault the people who design our roads. They should look at how the Romans built roads,some of which are still in use.
