RE: Lack of RV Parks... Jimmy Buffet to the rescue!

My apologies for waking up an old post. Has anyone stayed at the Jimmy Buffet park in Pigeon Forge? I am considering it as back-up to another park in the area. The rates are competitive-ish considering all of those parks are charging near $100 /night. It appears to be further off the road than most and the amenities seem plenty to keep my pre-teens occupied. Being new isn't bad so long as it isn't unfinished. Nothing worse than seeing all of the things that WILL be fun in the future while the kiddos track the mud in from where the grass should be. The lack of pictures on their website leaves me a bit concerned to its current state of completion. Thanks. I live in the area and have not driven through as yet. My curiosity is piqued and I may just go drive through it to see for myself. There are so many choices in campgrounds here it's hard to pick one that suits your needs. Obviously you want things for the kids to do and not have to go too far for them to do it when you at the site. Last I heard the arcade is open as is the adult lounge. When are you coming down? I'll see if I can check it out soon. I moved from Mich 9 years ago and love it here. Hello Ken56, Thanks for the update. We're looking towards the end of August. We're trying to hit a :sweet spot" (if one exists) between the end of summer wind down and the start of school. It is a last minute trip replacing a longer trip out west spoiled by business travel and a juror summons. If you happen to cruise through the park I'd be glad to hear what you see! I sometimes dream of the day when we move from Michigan, but then summer comes and I forget all about it... until February comes again... Nonetheless, glad you love it there, it certainly is a beautiful place.

RE: Cummins 6.7L Gasoline Engine in a Ram?

I worked on a Department of Energy project with Cummins a few years ago designing part of a high-pressure gasoline engine. I imagine the entire project is public now due to the fact it was funded by DoE. It was pretty amazing how much power and torque was generated by this relatively small engine, very comparable to the diesel version that was designed alongside it as part of the same project. I am sure this gas version of the venerable B series will be just as impressive. I don't expect the cost savings to be realized in initial cost though - a lot of fancy stuff was going on with the DoE engines, and most components weren't as lightweighted as one might think. With the cylinder pressures being developed, a lot of stout parts and trick design was needed. The savings is realized in fuel efficiency and lower fuel prices. Duly noted a less sophisticated emissions system will definitely reduce the overall cost in the vehicle though.

RE: I-90 West through Cleveland

just stay in your lane and set your own speed been this rt lot of times. after 10am till about 2pm .I tow a 26ft boat thru there ,ain,t no good time. 3am worked good . I agree with midnightsadie. We travel this route a few times a year with our 45' coach and toad. I have yet to be through the city and metro area without some traffic incident slowing us down, sometimes considerably. That said, I have not found an alternative that makes any better time. Just take your time and as usual, keep an eye out for the expected erratic drivers.

RE: Satellite Dish question

Remember that you will be able to receive high-def reception for Direct TV ONLY with the $2200.00 Traveler dish. The domes will NOT receive HD for Direct TV. That's not true. You can also use a manual portable home style antenna which costs a few hundred bucks for a good setup. Also, a company called RF Mogul makes a fully automatic roof mounted antenna but it costs even more! The Winegard can be had for about $1900 and it can be self installed. While the Winegard is certainly less expensive the RF Mogul I feel is a better value. One big factor is servicing: the RF Mogul is completely field-serviceable while the Winegard has to be shipped back to them for any service. I realize this is a very old post, but for prosperity, I want to share my experience. Winegard has been around a long time and probably has a higher chance of remaining in business than RF Mogul. I have recently been forced to upgrade from a presumably better dish (Moto Sat) after it lost its ability to locate satellites. Sure, it was old technology, but it worked. The issue was Moto Sat is gone, and I could not get any support. RF mogul may be the better dish, but how long will they be around, or how long until they get acquired and drop past product support? This is just something to keep in mind when considering brands, especially on $2k plus purchases.

RE: I-77 Between SC And OH in January - What to Expect?

Thanks for the replies Matt and Ken. I have avoided this route in the past, earlier in the winter season, based on this assumption. Seems like it was a good one. Late January is asking for trouble I suppose.

I-77 Between SC And OH in January - What to Expect?

I am planning a trip south in late January. I am contemplating returning north using I-77, mainly to see something different than my usual I-75 route. My concern is whether or not this route is subject to higher risk of bad weather, etc. than the straight shot of I-75. If anyone has experience with I-77 during January or February, I'd like to hear your thoughts. Thanks!
