RE: Seeking Simple RV Recipes

Sausage and Kraut Serves 3-4 1 lb of kielbasa/smoked sausage/whatever sausage you prefer. 1 jar of sauerkraut dark brown sugar In a cast iron fry pan sear the sausage. Lower the heat and pour the kraut on top of the sausage. Sprinkle brown sugar on top to taste. Cover and simmer about 20 minutes. Option: you can also add leftover cooked potatoes to the pan.

RE: Good News

Congratulations on all counts. Glad your wife had the knee surgery. Those procedures provide a lot of relief. Welcome to Winnie; she looks like a Winner.

RE: Family Reunion 2022

Great ideas: BLT bowls and the grilled cheese and bacon sandwiches. We really enjoy the candied bacon but then we really enjoy jerky. We're also doing "Killed Lettuce" with hot bacon grease/vinegar and sugar dressing.

RE: Family Reunion 2022

Bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers I add fresh chopped chive to the cheese and sprinkle a little brown sugar on top of the bacon Thank you. I'll add it to the menu. It'll go well with the jalapeƱo jelly option if folks don't want the usual sauces.

RE: Family Reunion 2022

Old but delicious Wrap a medium shrimp in a half strip of bacon. Thanks for the reminder. I've put it on the menu! Bacon needs no assistance. Adding to another food is just plain wrong! When it's just us guys we'd probably agree with you. But there will be ladies present and they like to dress things out.

Family Reunion 2022

Beginning to round up bacon-themed recipes for this summer's reunion. This thread is to share what I've found. So far, so good: Bourbon Bacon Pecan Pie Smoked Hamloaf Bacon Fried Cabbage (using both red and white cabbage).

RE: Trek Toad

We have a 50 cc scooter type motorcycle we use as a toad on shorter trips to just gad about in cities. It weighs less than 200 lbs and it can travel on a hitch carrier. For longer trips we'll take the old Corolla on a trailer.

RE: Trek Toad

My unaffordable runaround dream machine is a golf cart stuffed with lithium batteries. And a pair of 500 watt solar panels as a canopy roof. (sigh) Will it have a/c and heat?

I don't know, maybe even trekkies have taste. LOL Or they have a sense of fun.:W:B

Trekkers/Trekkies would go for it.

RE: Camping Courtesies

Pick a campground that matches your camping style. For example, if you don't like the sound of generators, pick a campground that bans or limits the use of generators. And if you must use a generator, pick a campground that has no restrictions on generator use. Don't choose a campground that doesn't match your camping style and then complain about people camping according to the rules or ignore the rules and do as you please. Good point! Follow the speed limits in the parks. I know 5 mph is just agony to do but there are small kids playing at times and it helps keep the dust down too. Just stop being in a rush to get to the exit. Yes!

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

Dutch Ovens in cast iron and aluminum. Collect them too, 23 in all. My ancient Wagners, Griswolds and other antiques stay home but the Lodge go with me.

RE: Camping Courtesies

I think there are three types of "inconsiderate people". Those who don't care. Those who don't know. And those who do it purposely. The last, nothing will change. They will always be inconsiderate. The second, they just need someone to give them a polite heads up - whether in person or through threads like this. The first, they are the ones that need multiple non-aggressive reminders. They are likely to get defensive if you approach them at the time. But enough reminders at other times MAY get through to them. Summed up nicely. Some friends of ours camped at an SP. They were literally pestered by this woman who kept wanting them to change sites so her daughter could park in the spot. The park is first come, first serve. After the third encounter with this woman our friends got the park ranger involved. She was warned to leave other campers alone or be expelled. In that case our friends felt she had emotional problems. This really doesn't fall into any of the three categories you mentioned. It's just another example of things that can happen.

RE: Camping Courtesies

It's not the age (generation) of the idividual, it's the times we live in (era). I've witnessed 70+ year olds being just as self-centered as young folks, and young folks who have been extremely courteous. BINGO. Ok, I just want to add patience and understanding on both sides. And maybe, if you have that , you can take the time to explain and teach people some courtesies. People don't know what they don't know. One of the objectives of RV.Net is to educate new RVers. Many people ignore campground rules, courtesies or common sense once they leave home. We see it all the time. The experienced have always educated the newcomers. RVing has some common sense courtesies that others may never had to learn. This thread is in keeping with one of the purposes of RV.Net: Education.

RE: Camping Courtesies

If you will be repeatedly getting in and out of your vehicle throughout your stay, silence the beeps.This one is SO annoying! Either leave your vehicle unlocked or press the button on the door. Many cars with keyless entry don't have that option, the car locks (and beeps) automatically when you step away -- the beeps can be silenced (I've silenced mine), but it requires wading through the menus to find the option. If you go camping a lot and get in and out of your car a lot, it's worth wading through convoluted menus. It was the first thing I did when I got my durango - then I set the clock and my radio presets. Yep. So that it doesn't get lost in discussion, this one is REALLY IMPORTANT: Don't take up two (or more) parking spaces with your RV when visiting towns. RVers are guests in other places. We represent the RVing community. In addition to getting ticketed, we are creating our own bad PR.

Camping Courtesies

As travel season gears up, perhaps its time to again list those courtesies for the sake of new RVers. Feel free to contribute to the list of courteous manners. Follow campground rules.Keep your pet under control and pick up after them.Don't play your tv or music too loud at your campsite. Not everyone likes your taste in programs.Avoid walking through another campsite if at all possible. Go around. Don't take up two (or more) parking spaces with your RV when visiting towns.Don't ask someone to trade campsites with you. It takes a couple of hours to set up and take down camp. Unless you're willing to pay them $100/hour, don't ask. Feel free to add more courtesies.

RE: Parking permits in the GSMNP

I don't know what the solution is. The reality is things are totally different today from when the National Parks were created. People now have the ability to easily get to them and experience them. That ease creates a numbers problem. Yes, the parks are supported by our tax dollars. Another reality is the money the parks are getting from our tax dollars is not enough to maintain the parks. There is a serious backlog of maintenance issues. Here in SC the State Parks have to be able to sustain themselves. This has actually improved the parks. Yes you pay to get into the bigger and popular parks. Those fees also help keep the crime down. Again, don't know the solution but something has to be done. Will be camping for a week in May near the GSMNP before school is out, so hopefully not too bad. Went to Grand Canyon last year 2 weeks after Easter hoping to miss Spring Break and had no crowd issues. I am sure COVID helped the crowd issues there last year. Good words and a good point. Just because there are taxes doesn't mean the politicians will send more of those dollars to the parks. SC has excellent state parks at least those I've visited. I agree that it does keep down the crime too.

RE: Parking permits in the GSMNP

The park has a mandate of no fees. From its very beginning FDR promised there should be no fees for this national park. I honestly don't think this will be implemented but still, go to the NPS website and voice your opinions. Technically, the entrance to the park itself will not have a fee. It is the parking that will require a fee. Personally I'm seeing some of our parks are struggling with over-usage. They're being trampled. Limiting per diem visitors isn't a popular idea but it's the only solution that seems floatable right now to allow the parks to recover.

RE: Cooking with wind on Blackstone

I use a simple aluminum flashing from the hardware store as a wind block. Cheap and works as well or better than anything "designed".
