RE: 10 days in Michigan

Thank you all so much for all the suggestions, working on getting some reservations now. Hope we can get all our work completed by Friday so we can be on our way. Trekker, we did visit the RV Hall of Fame when we picked up our coach a few years ago. We really enjoyed it!

10 days in Michigan

DH and I are in Elkhart to have some work done on our coach. After finishing, we’d like to see something of Michigan. We have visited The UP and Mackinac Island, albeit briefly. We are interested in the Traverse City area, and I plan to look for some parks there. I realize we could have some problems getting reservations, I didn’t make any as we missed a previous appointment for this work to be done on our coach. Due to a misdiagnosed problem with a slide we had to cancel all the reservations we had made for the previous planned trip. If I can get some good recommendations on beautiful places to stay and things to do, I would appreciate it. We have a 37 ft fifth wheel, high profile so trees can be an issue. Since we have triple axles, we need room to maneuver. We have to be back in Texas by 8/11. Thanks so much for your help.

RE: Campgrounds along or near Hwy 12 in Idaho

Thanks for the info on Hwy 12. I think we are going to give it a try. I am really looking forward to it!

RE: Campgrounds along or near Hwy 12 in Idaho

Thank you all so much, I. Really appreciate all the info. ReneeQ, I will check those websites and Campendium. Have not previously heard of it! DH loves to fish and I have been known to wet a hook, so camping along the Lochsa sounds inviting. How tough a pull is Hwy 12 along that stretch? Should have included that question in my original post.

Campgrounds along or near Hwy 12 in Idaho

DH and I will be going over the Lolo Pass from Missoula and looking for campgrounds near or along Hwy. 12 in late July or early August. I noticed that there are several NFS CGs along the Hwy. However, only two look like they would work for our 38 ft. fiver, Wendover and Wilderness Gateway. Our trailer is 13’4”” tall, we need good area for maneuverability and some open sites. An old Coleman NFS CG directory states that there are both wooded and open sites in both. Does anyone have knowledge of these campgrounds or any privately owned campgrounds that they would recommend along this route between Missoula and Kooskia. Thanks in advance for your help.

RE: recliner chairs for 5th wheel

We also have Lazy Boy backs come off which makes them easy to get inside the fiver. Our sofa is also Lazy Boy and we upgraded with a temper pedi mattress which makes it more comfortable for our guests. Having lots of fabric and leather choices is an added benefit.

RE: Santa Fe, NM RV Parks and To-Do's

Charming, we just set up in Santa Fe Skies. There are lots of open slots at the moment, however they do tend to fill for the weekend. We were fortunate, it was raining when we pulled in, but cleared long enough for us to get set.

RE: Santa Fe, NM RV Parks and To-Do's

We go three or four times a year and love Santa Fe Skies, For several years we stayed at Trailer Ranch, but were delayed getting in one time so could not get in before the office closed. That was when we discovered Santa Fe Skies, lovely views, large clean restrooms, and big pull thrus although there are some back in sites as well. Some favorite restaurants are Maria’s, Il Piatto, Boca, Harry’s Roadhouse (great brakfast and dinner), Clafoutis for breakfast. Can’t remember the name of it but there is a great restaurant in Madrid heading out of town the opposite direction from Santa Fe as you round the curve. It is across the street from the Mine Tavern. There should be something going on in the square in Santa Fe on the weekend, there usually is in the summer. Others have hit most of the activities. We also enjoy the art out on Canyon Road, you can easily spend the better part of a day wandering through the galleries. Have fun!

RE: Motorhome to 5th wheel

There’s a great video on you tube, just look up motor home vs. fifth wheel. It lays out the differences fairly succinctly. I think so much of the decision depends on budget, your age, and personal preferance concerning floor plan and the way you plan to use your RV. Do you plan to stay put or will you move frequently? Good luck with your choice, it isn’t an easy one to make, but doing your homework really helps to make the correct one for you.

RE: Terlingua Chilli cook off

I don’t know which one is which, but will tell you that unless you are quite young (under 25), you want to go to the one where the older folks are. It has been some time since we have been, but will tell you that the one the younger folks attend is pretty wild. The one we liked was the first one on the left as you lefave Study Butte going toward Terlingua and Lajitas.

RE: Good Park near Carmel, CA

Surprised your search didn’t turn up this site. Try a different search engine. The Presidio of Monterey has a Marine detachment...to keep the sailors in line...I hear. Need to meet the military requirements to stay. Let me know if you have trouble finding those. http://get.dodlodging.net/propertys/Monterey-RV-Park- I found this site, but saw no links to RV Parks. Saw lots of lodging options, but no parks. Am sure I did something wrong. Am very interested.

RE: Good Park near Carmel, CA

We have stayed at Marina Dunes, it was a long time ago, but as I recall (and that could be suspect), the sites were fairly close together. I will look at it again. Thank you for the suggestions.

Good Park near Carmel, CA

We have a 38 ft fiver and are looking for a park near Carmel. We have stayed at Carmel by the River which was a nice park, but DH remembers that it was a bit tight and that there was a really tight turn into the park with the 36 ft DRV that we had. Since we have a larger heavier 5 er nows, we would like to find another place to stay. I looked at the Monterrey County Fairgrounds Park and read several reviews. They were all over the lot as to the quality of this park. Does anyone have any personal experience with this park or any other that might be suitable. We plan to attend the ATT Golf Tournament, last time we went we parked at a Marine Corps base, I think, and boarded busses for the ride to Pebble Beach. Does anyone know how close the fairgrounds are to the base? Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

RE: Things to see in San Antonio besides the riverwalk

The Missions, in particular the Alamo and Mission San Jose. The Menger Hotel and its historical bar. This is next door to the Alamo. There is also Sea World and Fiesta Texas if you have any interest in amusement parks. The Pearl, which is just north of downtown. There are restaurants, bars, and shops in thie newly renovated home of the old Pearl Brewery. On the weekends there is a great farmer’s market. It is fun to visit the a Hotel Emma which is housed in the old brewery itself. Most of the buildings there housed various parts of the brewery operation, the stables, etc. We enjoy the botanical gardens and have attended various concerts under the stars. The McNay Art Institute is worth a visit as well as The Institute of Texan Cultures and the Witte Museum. The Briscoe Museum of Art is also really good. (Briscoe is closed on Mondays). For good Mexican food, stay away from the Riverwalk, however, Boudro’s has good southwestern food and it is on the Riverwalk., good Margaritas too. Mi Tierra and La Margarita in the Mexican Market are touristy, but fun and the food is pretty good. Mi Tierra has a good Mexican breakfast. Another fun place for breakfast is in the Guenther House which is part of the Puoneer Flour Co. The home is the home of the founder and has been restored. Tours as well as breakfast are available. It is in a charming part of town where many of the prosperous German Merchants of the 19th century built their homes, many of which are on the river. This part of town is known as the King William area. There are art galleries and some good restaurants here also. PM me if you have further questions.

RE: Potluck ideas?

Corn Pudding is a favorite. It’s great with BBQ, ham, steak, hamburgers, etc. CORN PUDDING Preheat oven 325 degrees 1 box Jiffy Corn Bread Mix 3 eggs 1 medium onion, chopped 2 Tbsp oil 1 8 oz carton sour cream 2 cups (or more) shredded sharp cheddar; divided use 2 cans creamed corn 1 10 oz. can whole corn, well drained 1 tsp salt 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper Sauté chopped onion in oil until soft, cool a bit. In a large bowl, whisk eggs well, add cornbread mix, sour cream, creamed corn and drained whole corn. Add 1 cup of the grated cheddar, the cooled onion, salt and pepper. Stir together well until all ingredients are incorporated. Transfer to a greased 8X12 or 9X13 pan. Cover with foil and bake 40-45 minutes. Uncover and top with remainder of cheese, I usually use more than a cup. Bake until firm, about 15 -20 minutes more. If you like the cheese to be gooey, uncover as per directions and wait to put the cheese on 5 or 10 minutes before you remove from oven. I have baked this in different ovens and have found baking times can really vary, just bake till firm.

RE: Preparing house for long road trip

Turn off water to entire house, we learned the hard way. DIL was supposed to check house a couple of times a week, but did not. We got a call from our yard man that water was coming out from under our front door. We do not have close neighbors so no one saw it. Yard man comes weekly. We also unplug electric water heaters. For toilets I read a tip on this forum that we have used for several years now. Add CLR to toilet bowl, I use about a third of a bottle per toilet, and then raise seat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, it will take two sheets. Press seam together over middle of bowl and then press wrap well all around sides of bowl. Lower seat and lid. When you come home there will be no ring in the toilet and all the water will be in the bowl. We have been gone as long as 3 1/2 months and had no problems.
