RE: KOA membership

We generally don't do the KOA membership, but did the membership last year as we booked a few on some trips, will probably renew this year as we have 2 stops booked again for this year. mike

RE: Meet our new camping dog!

Thanks everyone for the name suggestions as many made the short list. Today we decided to name our dog Gracie crate training so far is going better than expected, house training is still a work in progress. :C Mike

RE: Meet our new camping dog!

I forgot to mention she's a sheltie. This will be #2 sheltie as our first passed away 5 yrs ago. We still have not figured on a name, liked some of the suggestions! possibilities are Cinder & Dahlia but were open for more ideas! :C Mike

RE: Camping in VT, NH, ME, NY Looking for suggestions

Thanks for the reply. We've been to Letchworth, great place. Good to know re VT and hookups, or lack there of, were good with some dry camping. The Burlington bike path, Paved? We are Road bikers, not MTN. Are you a fan of baseball? Look into Hartwick Highlands Campground in Cooperstown, NY. Besides the Hall Of Fame about 50 minutes away you have Catskill Scenic Rail Trail and Erie Canal Cruises, both make great day trips. In Copake NY you have Copake Camping Resort, down the road is Scenic Harlem Valley rail trail which is a must, while on the rail trail check out Bash Bish Falls and Copake Iron Works Museum. Both rail trails are extremely scenic, pack a lunch while on the trails :C https://i.imgur.com/keRs3L0l.jpg Pik from catskill scenic trail https://i.imgur.com/SwEgAeel.jpg Pik from Harlem Vally rail trail https://i.imgur.com/8jAgrqFl.jpg Mike

RE: RV Park Reviews

Tried to post the latest park I am in. After 70 reviews in 20 states I can not post to the "new" site. I use(d) the site all the time for the reviews by people that had been there. Error occurred token mismatch or similar. Cleaned cache & restarted and tried to post a second time, still no go. Though I've never had a problem on a review upload, I will write my reviews on MS word first then do a copy & paste to CR. Good Luck Mike

RE: Looking for RV parks near Boston MA

I'm just finding that out. What about the Charlie ticket with the 1 week link pass? The one week pass is a Charlie Ticket, I guess, based on the MTBA web site. If that's what you're getting, then you can safely ignore what I wrote. For a la carte single fares a Charlie Card is cheaper than a Charlie Ticket, and it took me far too long to suss out how to obtain said Charlie Card. That was all. Living in Vermont I'm more likely to head down to Boston for a day trip or maybe an overnight/weekend than a week, and single ride fares usually end up being more economical than a day or week pass for me in such situations. We go to the Red Sox games frequently and leave from Riverside station, they are always selling the Charlie Cards and if I remember you can load any amount of money on the cards. Do they sell the cards at all stations? probably not. But maybe a good guess at all the major hub stations. Mike

RE: Vermont camping area’s

Quechee-Pine Valley KOA is centrally located in VT, great reviews, full hookups, lots of touristy stuff in a quaint area which includes Quechee Gorge . Big Balloon festival in June, a must Visit! Book now as the campground sells out fast for the event. https://www.quecheeballoonfestival.com Mike

RE: Looking for RV parks near Boston MA

Yeah I wouldn't be driving in Boston... not brave enough :B We live close enough to take day trips in so taking the T would be my suggestion as it will almost get you almost everywhere in Boston Not saying you have to do this but we have taken the green line in many times, Riverside station exit 22 grove street, directly off I95.(relatively easy to get to) you will need to download a parking app to pay for parking https://www.mbta.com/stops/place-river Though we have never been to Boston Minuteman I hear it is also popular with the RVers for visiting Boston Good Luck Mike

Fishing at Massasoit State Park, MA

Thinking of doing a early May fishing trip. Hows the Bass or trout fishing? Need a electric site as a minimum. Any other suggestions on any other MA state parks (or private maybe) around the same time frame that offer good fishing with electric sites. Edit: you would think this place has a dump station, no mention on reserve america and CGR, except 1 old review before the campground was re-opened last year after renovations. Thanks for your replies Mike

RE: Full Hook-ups or no?

Just curious. Some RVers won't consider sites without FHUs, some prefer the flexability of staying in wilder places without worrying about hook-ups and some are in between, wanting at least electricity. We started around 1970 with a pop-up and didn't even think about the issue and never had hook-ups. Then with an RV for many years we sought out campgrounds often without hook-ups. But now, we really prefer electric but will use a national park campground without. We've never felt sewer to be too important. Even this winter we will be at a national forest site without so we will just drive to the dump once a week. Water hook-up is preferred but no mandatory. I feel that absolutely requiring FHUs causes one to miss out on many beautiful campgrounds. Similar here, we have to have electric as a minimum, everything else is optional. At this point in our lives I am not willing to spend $$$ on a generator just for a few trips. Going forward on our next RV we plan to keep our options open concerning getting a generator. Mike

RE: Is Socializing a Dying Thing in the RV Community?

I don't force interaction / socializing on anyone & I'm very good at reading things like folks' body language & whatnot. This intent of this thread was about my observation that once upon a time, not too awfully long ago, RVing was like off-roading & boating was/is.... an activity where you were constantly around cool/interesting people that knew how to 'play hard' & enjoyed being around others that did as well. Same here Maybe its our perception as we're getting older, I think most young folks that get involved in socializing when camping/rving are probably doing it for their children. When the kids move on so don't the parents into different activities. (note all the rvs that you see unmoved year after year from your local neighborhood) :C Mike

RE: Must see in Maine?

Maybe look into the Camden,Rockland area of ME, might be worth a couple of days. State rd 1 about 1 hr south of Acadia. Camden Hills State Park lots of shopping and outdoor activities in the area Old Orchard Beach in southern ME your teens will like the beach, arcades and Amusement Parks. Tons of campgrounds in the area Mike

RE: Pets and National Parks

We traveled FT for 7 yrs with our Dog.....4 yrs old until 11 yrs old We did same as we would have done IF we where in a S&B As the dog got older we shortened or time away Instead of spending ALL day got----we used 2 days/3 days etc We still work 40, we had owned a Sheltie, as our dog aged out we found we couldn't get her out of the camper. We felt we were very fortunate that the dog traveled so well. Comes down to knowing your dog, knowing the rules and environment around you. been 5 yrs since we have had a dog, new Sheltie coming this spring, Will our new dog be a clone as our old one, probably not so adjustments will have to be made.
