RE: Two Medical Crises their Resolution and Costs

Thanks for that information. Have you checked out liquid Benadryl? It's supposed to get into your system faster. I am sorry but I have not. I have heard that it is suppose to work faster and purchased some but have not had to use it. The first time I was stung I ended up in the hospital and they used an IV. Since then I have been stung once and used the benedril immediately. I waited awhile, kept talking and started having hoarseness. I got the epi out and waited another couple minutes and it started getting better. I don't think I would do that again. As soon as the hoarseness started I should use the epi.

RE: Two Medical Crises their Resolution and Costs

Glad to hear you are doing fine. I don't know anything about the wasp that stung you but I have a bee allergy. Please be careful. I have always been told that a second sting within 6 months could be a much more severe reaction. My protocol is to take 2 benedril immediately. If that does not work I have to use the epi. Epi's are life saving if benedril does not work, but also have risks involved. They can severely impact your heart which is why we have to call 911 if it is used. Best wishes!!

RE: Cover or not to cover

We had a 5th wheel for 10 years. We covered it for 8 years before having a garage big enough to put it in. DH was careful to add padding to stress places so there was no rubbing in the wind. Our cover allowed him to check his "trap lines" for mice.

RE: Best Camping along the Gulf Coast

Thank you all so much. Since writing the post we will not be able to make the trip this year. We are going to keep all this information!

Best Camping along the Gulf Coast

We are possibly planning a November trip to the Gulf Coast in November. Are there any State Parks, or camping along the Gulf Coast that you would recommend. We do not have any set destination in mind. Thanks for your help.

RE: Full Time For Six Months

I would love to hear more about your 6 months. My husband talks a lot about heading out for months and I am apprehensive. We have 4 grandchildren so that explains a lot. Ha!!

RE: Solution to Trash Left Behind!

This is surprising. We have camped for almost 40 years and have never seen a site filled with trash. We have had minor trash left in fire rings but that is all. I can't imagine how thoughtless and self-centered people can be. When we pull out of a site, DH pulls out and I check the site. Actually because we never leave any mess, I am looking for forgotten items and checking lights and the RV. I am glad I do this because twice I discovered my purse on the picnic table! Yikes! The funny part is neighbors who are outside often tell me, "He is leaving without you."

RE: Did you notice..........

We noticed week day camping at State Parks in Ohio have been more packed. Normally they are full on weekends but not always during the week. We noticed that even in September. We have noticed a lot of brand new tents and new campers also.

RE: Looking for next travel trailer

Our new Rockwood Mini 2104 has a slide out dinette, oven, full bathroom, and a Murphy Bed but it is 4800 lbs. When the Murphy Bed is up, there is a couch with both ends that recline. We love it.

RE: Recent wonderful trip

:) I always enjoy reading about other RVers trips so here is ours. We took an 11 day vacation beginning at Black Water State Park, WV. Then we spent a few days in Shenandoah National Park, then a few days in Northern Pa in the Alleghany National Forest at a beautiful ANF campground, Willow Bay, then finished at Cooks Forest State Park. We Love CFSP but pet sites are limited and not in the best part of the campground. We no longer have a pet but there are always many sites where pets cannot go, sad. During the trip we saw 3 black bears, 1 bob cat, and multiple deer from the truck. There were bear where we hiked but they stayed away. We heard and smelled their musty smell. We hiked 8 mountain hikes totaling 40+ miles. We love hiking and I was proud that we did it all. Not bad for a couple of old people. We are so blessed to have Nat'l, State Parks and National Forests in this country. I didn't mean to hijack your thread with an emoji discussion. This trip sounds fantastic. This is such a great time of the year to travel. Many years ago our kids used to get a week off every October for Fall Break. Every year it was the same week, the last week that National Parks were open. We were there for closing day/night at various parks over the years and they even locked the gate behind us at Mesa Verde NP as we pulled out in our little popup. After traveling this same time of year for so long, we started joking that "it's only us, the geezers, and The Germans" (sorry to use that word, but we were young). All these years later, our kids are grown and it's just the two of us traveling, and somehow "us" and "the geezers" morphed together into one and the same. No problem at all. I guess we could be considered National Park, State Park and National Forest junkies. We have traveled throughout the country to visit these parks. We always had to visit during the summer until my retirement. I was a teacher then an elementary school principal. Now we normally travel in September. We would like to take another trip in October. My fingers are crossed. :)

RE: Food!

This time of year I like to make chili or stuffed pepper soup to take with us. I put it in containers that I can heat and serve with maybe a grilled cheese sandwich or salad. Easy and done.

New RVer's and campers - Welcome!

I have been reading that RV's are hard to find because this year more people have decided to begin rving or camping, whichever you prefer. So Welcome, know that there are people on this forum who can be of great help to you. Why have you decided to begin this adventure? and What are your biggest concerns? By the way, you might want to look at a Post I did several years ago titled, "Mistakes we don't want to repeat." Again welcome.

RE: Why so few Murphy beds ?

I am reading a lot of the negatives about the Murphy Bed. We just downsized from a Cougar 26SAB 5th Wheel to a Rockwood Mini 2104s with a Murphy Bed. We love it! We travel all over the country and wanted a smaller camper that we could still be comfortable in. The Rockwood Mini is perfect for us. We have a slide out so the kitchen, dining area are really spacious. There is a lot of storage and a couch. The couch folds down for the bed. The Murphy Bed stays completely made so when we lower it, you just get into bed.

RE: What's Opened?

Ohio State Park hiking trails and lakes are still opened. State park lodges, campgrounds, cabins, golf courses and all restrooms are closed. Each State Park can determine if the trails need to be closed due to overcrowding.

RE: RV living and registering child for 1st grade.

I don't know Pa laws, but am a retired school administrator. Is your mailing address the campground? Is the campground within the school district? Most importantly do you live at that address? If all answers are yes, your children can legally attend the school district. However, if you do not reside at the campground you reside outside the district and cannot enroll.

RE: Coronavirus practical issues

This is what I copied on Facebook. It has a stick figure with a smile. "This Is Bob. Bob is not panicking. Bob listens to scientists instead of news media. Bob washes his hands all year long because he's not gross and knows basic hygeine. Be like Bob. We are paying attention to the CDC and other scientists. This is not, as some would have people believe, a political ploy either by the right or left, but is a real problem that needs to be addressed with caution and concern.

RE: 1st TT arriving tomm, what is your check list for setup?

Someone mentioned having an experienced RVer there and that is an excellent idea. When my daughter got her first, she videotaped the walk through so that if she had questions they could refer to it. Open every cupboard, awning, etc, close everything and make sure it works well. Try everything! We just purchased a new TT and DH will go under it to make sure that all is secure, I will check everything inside including opening windows. Welcome to camping or RVing whichever you prefer. You will never regret traveling all over this beautiful country. When you have questions, ask here, there are so many expert people here that have helped us a lot over the years.

RE: Investing in "EcoPro Products" Protection

Thank you all!! This is exactly what we thought. I just wanted to hear from the "real pros of RVing." Our new TT is in and we have annoyed the dealer by not financing it with them, not adding this protection stuff, and not purchasing a hitch from them. We found the hitch for about half the price the dealer offered. The final annoyance will be when we go to pick it up and go over it inside, outside, under and over before taking it. When DH went to pick up our new 5th Wheel, he was in a hurry because I was home one day post surgery. He did a quick inspection, did not look under and the opening circles for wires, pipes etc were about 3 inch open circles. We did not know it until we found that mice had a super highway into the camper. He caulked all openings, evicted, and all was well, just every annoying. We will not make that mistake again.
