RE: Us 27 in Georgia

Heading north the key is to get to Newnan; south it's Rome. CGs are Chattahoochee Bend SP, John Tanner CG (county), Little Tallapoosa CG (county) and Harvest Moon RVP (Adairsville).

RE: Us 27 in Georgia

Yes, several times. It's a nice mostly leisurely drive. Be sure to take the bypass around Columbus. I also take off at Rome over to I-75 at Calhoun, then at Dalton take the Dalton Bypass/Cleveland Highway and avoid the Chattanooga area entirely.

RE: Looking for a propane setup for seafood boil cooking

Bayou Classic is a good brand commonly sold at Walart, Amazon, Home Depot etc. Generally speaking, you want to keep the weight down low so get a burner with short welded legs, not somehthing tall and spindly. Remember the top of the pot is going to be fairly high up too. Although a pan or griddle can be used on these burners it's difficult to turn the burner low enough and keep it lit. I use a Nordic Ware flame-tamer burner plate (Amazon) for that Although you can set the burner on a table it gets mighty hot under the burner; I use a pizza pan or sheet pan as a heat deflector so I don't melt my plastic table. I use an Imusa Caldera (Amazon) on the burner for ordinary fish or chicken frying.

RE: 1st RV Road Trip - Florida itinerary

To get to the east coast I strongly suggest you get over there well north of the Orlando area. Go CR-42/SR-44 from just south of Summerfield towards New Smyrna or, the farthest south, SR-46 east from Mt. Dora. Orlando traffic has become legendary.

RE: 1st RV Road Trip - Florida itinerary

Jetty Park is a good spot. You can just tootle up SR-3/Courtenay Parkway to KSC. I'd give it a full day; however, if you've been to the Huntsville facility it might be somewhat old hat.

RE: 1st RV Road Trip - Florida itinerary

Dial that way back. Seems like just a driving trip, guaranteed to leave everyone worn out and grouchy every day. If you're going to KSC and Canaveral, you need to be at Manatee Hammock, not the backside of Melbourne an extra hour away.

RE: gulf shores to spring hill, FL - US 98

Just past Apalachicola at East Point head across the bridge to St. George Island and camp there. The CG is on the sound side in the woods but take your toad over to the beach. Spectacular! https://www.floridastateparks.org/parks-and-trails/dr-julian-g-bruce-st-george-island-state-park Farther along, just across Ochlockonee Bay near Panacea is a nice CG, Holiday CG. It's on Ochlockonee Bay (no beach but a nice view) and take the toad down Mashes Sands Road at the flashing light to Mashes Sands Beach. It's a real beach but there's no surf. http://holidaycampground.com/photo-gallery/ The Big Bend from Alligator Point around to perhaps Clearwater is so low-energy that beaches simply don't happen. At the Newport Bridge go down to the St. Marks Lighthouse. There's a parking area big enough for you and it's a nice drive across the marsh. No facilities, no camping. Supplies are up US-319 in Crawfordville and in Perry.

RE: 20 year old hoses

Go ahead an change the radiator hoses, they should be about $50 each. For the heater hoses going up front, if you get into a jam you should have two shutoff valves at the engine. As for the hydraulic hoses running up front, that's a big job to replace but you should have them carefully inspected to be sure they're not rubbing on frame edges etc. Also, if you haven't already done so, change the belts. I sprung a leak in my 26-year-old top radiator hose last year and had it changed out at a CG in Montgomery. $45 for the hose and $200 for the service call and a couple of jugs of coolant. It would have been so much easier and cheaper to just do it in advance. If you have an Oshkosh/Freightliner chassis, call Freightliner and give them the last four digits of your VIN and they can sell you the parts of give you the part numbers.

RE: gulf shores to spring hill, FL - US 98

I'd never want to slog through all that traffic. I'd take I-10 from US-90Alt west of Pensacola to just past the Marianna exit, then take SR-71 south to connect with US-98 at Port St. Joe. You'll be right along the coast from just west of Apalachicola to St. Teresa, then you'll be swinging inland and stay inland the rest of the way. US-98 from Medart to Perry and US-19 south can be rather boring but the road is good with little traffic. You'll see a pine tree or 10 billion. Traffic will thicken up from Crystal River southwards but then you're most of the way to Spring Hill.

RE: RV Lot Insurance Ideas

Try Foremost. You'll need fulltimers insurance and they can probably add the building. I had a deck and shed added to my Foremost policy.

RE: Augusta, Ga. to Pensacola cross country suggestions.

US-221 to Valdosta, then down to I-10 or US-90.

RE: Heading to Florida

Sounds good. You might be able to get in at Cypress CG at Winter Haven https://www.cypresscampground.com/ for a month or more. Decent area, next door to Walmart, all other services nearby and warm in winter.
