RE: Full-time and don't/didn't like it?

Were still working 40 but our plans is to keep a S&B home and use it as a launch off point for extended trips. We see no appeal for full timing, subject to change of course. Mike

RE: Don't come to Massachusetts

latest from CT, schools closed for the next 2 weeks. CT & NY governers are meeting tomorrow to discuss something similar concerning reduced gatherings or only takeout at restaurants. Lots of retail businesses have already changed their hrs of operation or even closed, things seem to be snowballing. Mike

RE: Winhall Brook COE campground VT

We also have been there many times, yup I think they don't recommend anything over 42'to pass over the bridge. Last time we were there guy pulls in with a 45'DP, he couldn't cross the bridge going the correct way so he went down the north loop and came back up to try to cross. it took him several attemps going back & forth to finaly squeeze across. For a short time I was worried he was going to get his class A stuck on the bridge. Park rangers were not happy that the attendent allowed the guy to pull in. A must is the ADA rail trail that follows the river, very scenic. At the end of the rail trail, continue on a moderate wooded hiking trial for a mile to Angle Falls that overlooks a vally... pack a lunch as the 2 will take half a day. Under the bridge is swimming at the river. There is shallow and deeper pools with small stone banks perfect for setting up a beach chair, playing tunes and having a cold adult beverage, just picture something out of a Norman Rockwell Painting :C Mike

RE: Karaoke & Sing-along around Campfires

I always travel with my guitar. I'm always trying to improve my playing, which means I have to "practice" every day. When camping, I generally bring the guitar outside. Years ago, I was playing next to a campfire at Yellowstone, in the Norris Basin campground. At a minute past 8:00PM the host came over and told me to knock it off, because it was now "quiet hours." Sheesh. Last spring, at a campsite in Fort DeSoto Park Campground near St. Petersburg FL, the neighbor's dog howled (inside their RV) every time I was playing. Again - sheesh. I'm a pretty good guitarist, although the evidence in these two stories would suggest otherwise. I'm always happy when someone stops by and enjoys the music or joins in. -Speak I'd join in too but I can't carry a tune. but I'd stop by with a couple of cold beers as I am a good listener! :C Mike

RE: The Coronavirus

It gets annoying listing to the press 24/7 on this, but makes people think twice about their actions, surroundings and possible future travel plans. That I guess is a good thing, as this will pass Mike

RE: Campgrounds Near Newport, VT

https://www.campgroundreviews.com/regions/vermont/newport On our way up to Canada, We have stayed at Char-Bo Campgrounds in Derby, VT for a couple of days, about 5 miles from Newport. Clean well maintained campground. lots of large, level back in full hook sites. I'm almost sure they have 50 amp. Prouty Beach & Campground is in Newport, VT never stayed there but saw it across the lake from a restaurant we were dining at. Campground looked more conjested...but we were looking at it from a distance. Good luck and have a safe trip Mike

RE: virginia Beach

Looking at going to Virginia Beach, but ive been told the Eastern shore is nice and away from all the tourism, also more of a adult area. as ive never been before what is the eastern shore compared to beach area? also campgrounds on eastern shore About 16 years ago we stayed at Cherrystone Family Camping resort. If you have a young family this place is worth it as there will be plenty to do a the campground. We did do a day trip to VA beach, the beach was fun but one day was enough for us. The Chesapeake Bay Bridge is an event in it's self.. be prepared to pay $$$ to cross Mike

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
