RE: Taking RV to FLA (west cost) to pick up mother in law

Update from OP-- All home - safe and sound. It was an un remarkable trip except for the current situation. Very grateful all are home and we had a camper ready to go when needed. I'm glad to hear you made it home safely and that it was uneventful. Not that I'm encouraging anyone to venture out when we should all be staying at home, but do you have any tips for others in your same situation? Were you able to find someplace to spend the night OK?

RE: Some ATV rules Help

Same with California, only age restrictions differ I guess. Good luck plating a UTV here in California.

RE: Emergency Travel - Texas to South Georgia?

Should I purchase a generator, "just in case?" If possible, I would definitely bring a generator and a fuel jug. We've seen so many posts here about closures, that I wouldn't count on being able to find open camp areas. You should do whatever you can to make your rig self-contained. I haven't seen this mentioned yet, but if I were on an emergency trip, I would consider overnighting in school parking lots. Schools are closed and the lots should be empty. Maybe even print a page in large print before you leave stating that you're on an emergency cross-country trip and put it in someplace conspicuous at night to inform LEOs that you aren't fulltiming in a public lot. For dumping, we've had good luck stopping at fairgrounds. Good luck.

RE: Taking RV to FLA (west cost) to pick up mother in law

dedmiston, I think the OP with the MIL was fourthclassC, rather than magicbus. I sure am rooting for these folks -- hope they make it home OK. Thanks. Too much to keep up with.

RE: Taking RV to FLA (west cost) to pick up mother in law

Just came north across the FL-GA border and they are separating southbound commercial vehicles and private vehicles at the approach to the weigh station about 5 miles south of the FL state line. Commercial passes in the left lane, private vehicles are fed into the weigh station which is now a checkpoint and everyone apparently gets read the rules. There was no backup when we came through. Dave North? You're on your way home with MIL? Good luck. I hope it's boring, uneventful, and safe.

RE: Arkansas State Parks

Thanks for the comments, but this thread is getting off topic for Arkansas parks.

RE: Stewards Volunteers are no longer allowed

As long as Mom is alive we'll be in Burbank. We already lost one son and family to AZ, might look there too. Crazy parallels. Went to the same university, married women with the same names, and now we stay in L.A. out of the same dedication to our moms.

RE: GA DNR slow site

I updated your topic title because "slow site" sounded like RV.NET is running slow (which does happen).

RE: Taking RV to FLA (west cost) to pick up mother in law

Lots of mean spirited posts here. So sorry for that. Tensions are high and the keyboard bullies are going wild. I deleted the posts from one of the repeat offenders. Good luck with your mother in-law. This sounds like a difficult trip.

RE: Interstate and other roadside Rest Areas - Open or Closed?

Your travel is necessary? Your need for vending machine access is required? I hate to call people out, but you've made this same (or similar) comment in multiple threads. Not that it's any of my business, but Kern County isn't home for you, is it? Even if I'm wrong, maybe it's better not to be so judgmental.

RE: Closure Threads

Please don't lump everything into one thread. Makes it very hard to keep up with and impossible for people to stay on subject (since there are so many). JMHO. Scott And MHO as well. It's silly to lump all the discussions into 1 thread. Just make a forum for COVID-19 for all discussions. Once it passes, close the forum down. -Michael Lighten up, everyone. That wasn't my idea, and I haven't lumped any threads together in this forum. ATC is very different than this forum. Apples and oranges. Please keep the conversations constructive and be safe.

Much appreciated by one who must be on the road to get home (or be homeless in 4 days). Dave Godspeed Dave. Other Dave

Closure Threads

We have been trying to funnel all of the Coronavirus discussions (including park & campground closures) into one thread in Around The Campfire (ATC). The ATC moderator agrees that this has been a success with respect to the COVID discussions, but we're changing tactics on the park closures. We will now be allowing posts for park & camp closures here again. Please keep your discussions on-topic. The two topics that have been problematic so far are discussions of politics and nutty home remedies & cures. My sympathies are with all of you who have had to cancel upcoming trips and even more so with you who are already on the road, fulltiming, or permanent campers. You all have my well wishes.

RE: now it's SC's turn to close state parks

Per the site Admin's request, I am closing all COVID-19 threads and directing future comments to one thread in Around the Campfire: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

RE: Wobbly Dinnette Table - How to fix?

Could you add a third leg to the existing table? Even though the mounts are shabby, an offset third leg would firm it up.

RE: Spearfish, SD

Secondly both the DW & myself have respiratory issues and don't want to get in to too high elevations. Wyoming can sneak up on you. It doesn't seem like it when you're in the flats, but even places like Laramie are at 7,000' in town before you even head up into the hills.

RE: Off Road Riding Spots (with coordinates)

The fastest way to ruin the good places in the outdoors is to publicize them. Show the coordinates, give directions and photos, and the next time you go there you won't be able to recognize it. Stop it. Oh please. This thread is 14 years old. We still recognize it. If anything, the responsibility and ethics of the riders have improved over the years and these spots look better now than they did 14 years ago.

RE: Wobbly Dinnette Table - How to fix?

Ask your wife what she wants. Or, buy this: https://www.amazon.com/AP-Products-131112-Flush-Table/dp/B00G44IZ5I/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=rv+table+parts&qid=1585322417&sr=8-4 That seems like a good fix. If you decide to go with a folding table, would you remove the bases and patch the holes? I used to stub my toes on those things when the tables were down.

RE: Snowbird returning to Ohio

Don't jump to the conclusion everyone has a choice. Where we are staying, when your rental expires you are out on the street as the owner is honoring leases that are in place but closing units as people leave. Rather than be homeless we will be returning to our home in New England. As much as I would like to beam us all home that isn't going to happen, so we too will be hitting the road taking the I-81 route to avoid the major cities. Dave In the past few weeks worth of posts, this is really the most interesting issue that I've seen over and over: the closures. The closures are supposed to prevent all of us who are at home from hitting the road and traveling, but it ignores all the people who are in the parks already. What are you supposed to do if you're: Traveling on a trip alreadySnowbirdingFulltimingPermanent Where is everyone supposed to go and how are they supposed to get there? I agree with shutting down reservations and bookings, but I disagree with booting everyone out of their camps and parks.
