RE: The GEO Method and Space Heaters - Thoughts?

I enjoy winter camping. One thing that made a big difference is a Mylar blanket (space blanket) UNDER the bottom sheet of the bed. Much warmer.

RE: Cleveland to Upper Peninsula of Michigan

As has already been stated, the bridge is very safe. (It will be closed to traffic on Labor Day for the Bridge Run). I75 is your quickest route, but good alternatives have already been suggested if you have the time. If you just want a break from I75, you could pick up US23 north of Woodville. This is a nice route along Lake Huron that will still take you to the bridge. Have a good trip! As I said earlier, US23 north of Woodville (or Pinconning) would give you a break from the freeways. (Exit 188 on I75)

RE: Favorite way to skip the interstates?

We get AAA maps of every state we are traveling through. For states where we are spending extended time such as Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, the Dakotas, and Idaho, I carry the Delorme Atlas & Gazeteer for each state. Mine are a few years old but they show (almost) every road in each state. We carry a plastic tote in the back seat of the truck to store all of our maps, camping books, and atlases to keep them in good shape when we are not using them. I also preplan our trips on the computer with Google Maps. The road less taken is more interesting. Stop frequently and actually talk to the locals. They will point out some amazing places to visit. I agree with using the DeLorme state maps. These show an amazing amount of information. I don't believe the interstates help you enjoy the TRIP; only the DESTINATION. Before retirement, we also felt the need to hurry through the 'let's get there!' portion so we could enjoy our destination. After retirement, we found it much more enjoyable to meander. General direction and vague destinations let us enjoy the whole trip.

RE: What size generator to run AC??

... more expensive and more maintenance but combining a pair of 2000w generators is also viable Personally, I would go this route instead of the much heavier 3000+W generators ! Assuming you are reasonably healthy, the bigger unit is my preference. Only lifting is in or out of the truck (it sits just inside the tailgate). After that it pulls around on wheels. The lifting is offset as the bigger units often come with electric start. If you are physically limited, yanking on the pull cord while bent over is likely to be challenging. The Champion 3400 has a nice handle / wheel set up for moving it. I just walk it up a lightweight truck ramp onto the truck. Easy.

RE: What size generator to run AC??

I've had no issues running everything with a Champion 3400 with propane. It is NOT a lightweight machine, but I run it out of the bed of my truck with no problem.

RE: Cooking surfaces and tools, What's your favorite to use!

Another vote for the blackstone. Other than a pretty pattern, does great on just about anything...and try to make eggs or pancakes on a gril. I have no problem cooking eggs, pancakes, or most other conventional foods on my pellet grille. Cast iron can cook about anywhere.

RE: RV Site UP Michigan - Finger Lakes

It sounds as though your route takes your on the west side of Lake Michigan to the U.P. The Finger Lakes are all in New York; none in Michigan. Your original post did not indicate that you were going as far as New York. If you are looking for wineries, distilleries, etc., there are some in the Michigan U.P. There are more in the Lower Peninsula. (Investigate Traverse City.) In the U.P., you need to eat pasties. Have a good trip!
