I've read posts about the Good Sam Travel Planner but am not really seeing what I need. I'm an Apple user. I'm trying to use it to plan a trip and it just doesn't cooperate. I've tried changing browsers (currently using Chrome..switched to Safari). For example. When I plan a trip and want to add a campground to the trip, I click the plus sign to "add to trip" and nothing happens. Over and over again. I've tried restarting the site. Nothing changes.

Any solutions? I'm a total newbie, but am pretty good with technology. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Try signing in to the goodsam site and try again, that happens to me also and usually just signing in or signing out then in again solves it. I too use a Mac and I think it is a cookie or something thing.

I get something like that too with my credit union site, spoke with the cu rep and she said Mac users have that issue sometimes and I have to restart my laptop to solve it, she said same, a cookie thing or something like that.

Do you use a Garmin GPS? Then you can go to this link and download Garmin Basecamp. It's free and it works great. You can plan routes in Garmin Basecamp on your Mac and then upload the routes and waypoints directly into the Garmin and let it navigate you. We just completed a 7171 mile trip through all of the eastern Canadian Maritime Provinces and did all of our route planning with Basecamp.

The cool thing about RVTripWizard is that they are hooked in directly to RV Park Reviews, which in turn has a link to the campground's website.

Thank you Keith. I really think it's a problem with using a Mac.I appreciate your advice!
