RE: Nomadland

I think the movie did a good job showing the sub-culture they portrayed. That group is growing, but many other groups are also growing. Families working on the road. Families moving to places without local employment, etc. The RV industry is having a banner year.

RE: South Lake Michigan

Driving up from Nashville to South Michigan to check off the last state in the Union to visit. Heading west afterwards back to the Pacific Northwest. 1) best place on Lake Michigan (Michigan side, preferably close to Indiana/Michigan border) for a brief visit and photo op (teens request) 2) ideas for overnight? 32' Class C motorhome in early May, so probably need electric hook-ups? Was thinking Indiana Dunes State Park after we stop in Michigan Planning for a long drive from Nashville, so will leave early. If your going to Michigan why not make it worth while? Northern Michigan is the best part of the state in my opinion. Very worth while. Dan They don't want to VISIT Michigan; they just want to check it off their list. As stated earlier, just go to Warren Dunes, and then escape through Chicago.

RE: Big Bend NP

My take, having been there. PawPaw_n_Gram has given you one of the best summaries and answers to a post you could hope for concerning one of the most remote areas in the lower 48 states. X2. Chisos Basin is my favorite inside the park also.

RE: What is the most efficient way to bypass Chicago?

If you will be leaving from somewhere in Wisconsin C.B.s route down I-39 to I-80 is the way I avoid Chicago. I also plan to go thru early in the a.m. or late at night. If you're leaving from Fargo you could do the route I'll post a link to. This route is only 53 miles longer but about 3 1/4 hrs longer. This route avoids Chicago plus Minneapolis which I hate worse than going around the bottom of Chicago. https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Fargo,+ND/Duluth/Mackinaw+City/Sandusky/@47.2362097,-93.7346767,8.08z/data=!4m26!4m25!1m5!1m1!1s0x52c8cb8d84677145:0x81aa30a52791aaca!2m2!1d-96.7898034!2d46.8771863!1m5!1m1!1s0x52ae527e782e37ff:0x90fdbf76eb580c72!2m2!1d-92.1004852!2d46.7866719!1m5!1m1!1s0x4d358b3940a9ad83:0xeac771ab20cc7a7a!2m2!1d-84.7271465!2d45.7774987!1m5!1m1!1s0x883a4160ab1e4547:0xff2a84906612320f!2m2!1d-82.7116821!2d41.4561754!3e0 If you decide to go the U.P. route, US2 normally moves pretty well, and the max speed limit is mostly 65 mph.

RE: recipes

A popular breakfast in Turkey is called Menemem. (Turkish scrambled eggs) A very easy camping version is below. eggs 1 small can of diced tomatoes 1 small can of diced chiles Onion salt, pepper, oregano, paprika, shredded cheese, bread. olive oil 1. Saute onions. add tomatoes and chiles with spices. 2. Heat covered until sauce has reduced and thickened. 3. On low heat, gently scramble eggs until almost done. 4. remove from heat, add cheese and stir until mixed and melted. This is typically eaten without utensils, but with pieces of bread. We like to lightly toast french loaf slices. One thing we found with eating with bread; it seems to take less to fill us up.

RE: Food!

Perhaps your wife is not "into" cooking this trip, but how about you? I know several men who cook and do a darn good job. Get a cookbook and find something good. I guarantee your wife will be thrilled! Dale I'm not physically able to stand for long and so on. I like to cook and. At home I would cook have the pots and pans cleaned and put away, food on the table with just the dishes and bowls to stick in the dishwasher in no time. I liked to make breads and rolls cakes etc and BBQ my own receipts for sauce and Mesquite smoked. I prefer to cook outside when I can. You can put a camp stove, small oven, crock pot, etc. on a chair-high table and do more from a seated position. Too much available to eat much fast food.

Local grocery stores, farmers markets, etc. are great ways to try local and/or ethnic new favorites. You can probably find any recipe you want might want on the internet. Eat out? Doesn't that mean put the chairs outside? :)

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

Many views have been expressed, and opinions are like ______; we all have them. I believe our U.S. responses have more to do with politics than medicine. Hopefully, things will begin to improve after November. Stay as safe and worry-free as you can. You know, even though this post does have the word 'politics' in it, I did not think of it as a political post. Just pointing out some of the differences between Covid responses. I apologize if I caused any inadvertent feather-ruffling.

RE: Camping in sub freezing weather

So, you're going for the skiing, not the camping, yes? You have temperature history at this location, but you previously stayed indoors instead of camping, yes? As stated in previous posts, at the very least you'll go through lots of propane to keep everything warm. At worst something fails and you have freeze ups. We winter camp all season in Michigan (U.P. and L.P.), but we always winterize. Too many possible points that can still freeze, and equipment seems to fail easier in cold weather. Insulated H20 container, portapotti arrangements, and warm sleeping bags let you concentrate on your outdoor winter entertainment and worry less about your equipment. Have a good trip. Hope all goes well with you.

RE: Camping with no reservations

You have everything to gain and nothing to loose by making reservations ahead and you avoid the possible frustrations and worry about finding an RV site every day. I don't agree with that, calling to change or cancel reservations is a PITA for all concerned. Unless it is a NP, SP or other high use area we didn't find reservations to be required or desirable. We had zero problems getting spots in COE parks unless it was the weekend when the locals swarm the parks. We even made a reservation online at our last COE park sitting in front of the check in booth window. Having a reliable hotspot makes all this much easier. We went thru FL, AL, GA, TN, AR, OK, NM, CO, UT, ID, WY, MT, ND, SD, NE, KS, and MS. And camped in every one except UT. Obviously certain states are verboten and to be avoided: NM, the left coast, all of New England and the Mid Atlantic states. We cut thru the corner of NM before the governor clamped down again. X2. Reservations are for sissies!;)

RE: Cast Iron pan seasoning Question

Here's how he fixes rough cast iron: How To Smooth Rough Cast Iron Meanwhile, look at the recipes on his channel. Amazing. Yup. His videos are fun to watch.

RE: Cast Iron pan seasoning Question

Season by wiping a light layer of vegatble oil......all sides Place in 450*F oven upside down (aluminum foil underneath to catch drips) Cook for 1 hour Allow to FULLY Cool WHen cooking don't attempt to lift food too early as it WILL stick Food will naturally release from pan when it is ready to flip/turn Clean up.... Allow pan to cool rinse with HOt water, wipe dry Wipe a thin layer of veg oil and place back in HOt oven to cure After several usages pan will be like an non-stick pan but w/o the chemical coating X2. The only thing I would add is use a high-heat oil to season with, and heat the pan BEFORE the hot water rinse.

Thank you for the information. Don't know how far we'll get as we take it a day at a time. We do enjoy the meander!
