RE: St Augustine Campgrounds

Have overnighted at Stagecoach ~ a dozen times coming or going further south, and never knew it had a 10-year rule. I suspect it is only invoked for RVs in obvious poor shape. Seems like a well-run place, so a phone call would probably resolve any questions.

RE: Jetty Park, Cape Canaveral

It’s been a few years since I was at Jetty Park, and I was in a Class B, so moving around wasn’t a problem, but my recollection is that the previously-mentioned Publix was the closest supermarket. Could be a convenience store somewhere closer, but it might be a good idea to stock up on your way in. There are some restaurants along the shipping channel within easier walking/biking distance, and the campground store carried a few snack food items, IIRC.

RE: Washing RV while traveling

The ‘South of the Border’ campground in Dillon, South Carolina has a self-service car wash with two RV bays, one of which seemed big enough for most motorhomes, IIRC. The ‘resort’ is fashionably tacky, at best, but it’s close to I-95, fairly inexpensive and located at just about the right stopping point when I head south. I’m in a Class B, so it’s a bit easier for me ($2), but the RV wash comes in handy after driving through winter snow or slush.

RE: Take-out in Yellowstone...

Shouldn’t this be in Camp Cooks and Connoisseurs Forum? Moderators must be a little slow today, eh?

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

Not officially a snowbird, but have gone to Florida for Spring Training baseball the last 6 years. Started out going for ~ a week, and expanded to ~ a month, before last year was cut short when MLB canceled the remaining games about halfway through. The County park campground I use reopened October 1, and MLB has posted a full 2021 Spring Training schedule, although tickets haven’t gone on sale yet. I expect them to wait as long as possible before making a decision, but wouldn’t expect full-capacity for spectators. Some local-government-owned Spring Training sites have posted plans for allowing some socially-distanced spectators. Got a full refund on tickets & campground last year when everything closed, so money probably not an issue. In theory, being cautious and self-contained should provide about the same protection there or at home, but we’ll see how it looks when I have to make a decision. Best case scenario is probably 3 weeks starting in the 2nd week of March; worst case is MLB and/or Florida never allowing spectators, taking the decision out of my hands. That’s 5 months away, a lot could happen, but late November or early December might be crunch time for deciding.

RE: Leaving dog at campsite

A dog barking is one thing, but how about blowing the horn? I was in a campsite that was one of 10 clustered around a circle, like the face of a clock, so those at the bottom of the circle faced back to one of the interior campground roads. There was a small dog left alone in a Sprinter-based RV next to me, who sat in the driver’s seat watching the road. Any time someone passed by walking a dog, the dog in the RV excitedly jumped up & down in the seat, barking a bit, but also hitting the horn with its front paws each time. Not that many dogs went by, maybe 4 or 5 in 2-3 hours, and the horn blowing only lasted 30 seconds or so each time, so I was mostly amused, but it might have been different if there were more dog traffic, or a dog in one of the other campsites that remained in view for a longer period. I was away from the campground when the owners returned, and they left the next morning, so I never found out if they were aware of their dog’s unique talents.

RE: Campground on river VA/WV/KY

Haven’t been there myself, but Shenandoah River State Park in Virginia seems to be highly regarded, including by the reviews at Campground Reviews.

RE: Confused and Frustrated

Have you looked at a lot of RVs, at least online? Might also want to go to a RV show if there’s a large one in your area. Don’t need to buy at the show - those prices are generally available despite the hype - but it can be a good way to see what the options are.

RE: This could be a problem

Could be that some of those unaffected by the coronavirus-induced economic downturn find self-contained, socially-distanced travel to low-density rural areas an appealing option, producing a short-term surge in RV sales. Long term, many will have less money and/or be reserving what they have for essentials. Should be more of a buyer’s market as time goes on, at least until a solid recovery kicks in.

RE: I 95 in Jax, FL and in Richmond, VA

I go around Richmond and through Jacksonville going to Florida & back the last 6 years. I’m in a Class B van, so it’s not that difficult either way. There’s usually not much traffic on the Richmond bypass, so I make good time. Jacksonville is a closer call, and I’ve gone both ways. There seemed to be a lot of beach traffic on the eastern bypass when I took it, so I decided to go through in later years. There’s been quite a bit of construction on that route, but it is getting better. In a larger vehicle! I might opt for the bypass on both. On my i-phone, Siri also opts to go around Richmond and through Jacksonville.
