We're confused!!!

We bought into GS club some months ago (have no idea...maybe spring). We THOUGHT we were getting not only roadside assistance but also the card so we could get discounts at RV parks, etc. Yesterday, while checking in, the park mgr pointed out our card was for "roadside assistance". Bless her heart, she gave us the discount. BUT......did we pay for the discount card??????? I tried to look at our bank account and it says we didn't make a payment to Good Sam at all(does it come in with a different name?). Can anyone help me here???? dee

RE: South West Weather

Quartzsite.....normally pleasant. Have had a few days of wanting the A/C on.....and have had to wear a coat because of COLD. (last winter, snow on surrounding hills -- Bouse had first snow EVER on the ground). We usually leave by first of March.....it's getting a lot warmer by then.

RE: Hearing aid advice

Wrace...I don't have time to read all the answers, so I'm gonna tell you my experience.....read it or not. :) I knew I needed my hearing checked, asked around and a friend said he'd gotten his from Costco. COSTCO?? Yeah, he'd bought FOUR other pairs from other places and none of them worked. Gave up, went to Coscto, cost him $2000 and they were the best he had ever had. Okay..sounds good to me! I went to a hearing DOCTOR instead......you know, just because I'm stubborn. He said yes, I needed aides......and gave me the test sheet that shows the charts for the losses, etc. Then his "other guy" in the office met with me and said $5000 to $8000. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO! Then he started putting down Costco aides! Said they wouldn't be any good cuz in 2 yrs they'd be outdated and if I lost one I'd just be out of luck! Okay....so after much discussion I said "so the ones you have, if I lose one in less than 2 yrs you'll replace it?" He said .........wait for it ......"no, they get outdated and I won't be able to get a matching one". OOOOOOOOOOOOKAY. We went to Costco.....got them 4 yrs ago, cost me $1900. and I've had NO problem with them....they do HELP. No aide will replace what we've lost, but they DO HELP! :) :) Now...the Doctor at Costco did the hearing test for free.....handed me the sheet showing the charts. I pulled out the one from the spendy doctor and they were almost EXACTLY alike............ I was sold

RE: Spanish Trail RV Park - Moab

Thanks for the feedback Lauren. When we went through there years ago, we stayed at Arches View for a couple of nights. Now, we might pick a dry campground along the Colorado River or boondock for a night or two.Next time, try the Willow Springs Rd, 1 mile north of Arch View CG. Excellent dry camping spots and close enough to the CG for the store and laundry if needed. That is our favorite spot when in Moab. Bob and I just got back from a ride out there! You're RIGHT! It's AWESOME.....yeah, next time we're camping there! :) :) Unless there's no room because you told the world about it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Moab Giants......A place to visit

Today we went to Paleosafari Moab Giants......a combo museum, souvenir shop and cafe. It's located on the corner of 191 and the road to Canyonlands. This place only opened a month ago (first of Sept 2015) and I have to tell you, I've not enjoyed a place as much as this!!! They have a museum with interactive functions showing not only the foot prints of dinosaurs found in the area, but also videos showing more information than I knew existed!!!! Definitely a great teaching opportunity. They also have a 10 minute 3-d movie of how the universe was formed and some info on the dinosaurs and a 1/2 mile walking path with LIFE-SIZE (as much as scientists know) replicas of dinosaurs with incredible reading boards. Even if you don't have children or aren't particularly interested in dinosaurs, this is an AWESOME place to visit! Oh, the cafe......great hamburgers and hot dogs!!! Plus a bam-bam (a whole turkey leg for those that don't remember the Flintstones cartoons) :) Oh -- here's the website! Moab Giants

RE: What does (not responding) mean

I've been getting the same thing....with Chrome. I eliminated Chrome and added Firefox.....and it's doing the same thing. I'm on an ATT MiFi.....closed IT down, and turned on my husband's Verizon JetPack and it now my computer works fine. I'm think MY problem is the ATT is getting used by a lot of people and/or I'm in a wavy area......sigh......

RE: Spanish Trail RV Park - Moab

We, too, don't depend on the Wifi in campgrounds. Why go thru the angst? We're in Pack Creek RV Park right now.....:) It's not the #1 rated RV park, but it's quiet!!!!! In fact, DH just woke up (8:00AM...and THAT's a first!!!). It's cheaper than all those others by far, dirt/sand on the roads, kinda cramped....but there is something about not paying a lot and not getting a lot that works for us. Paying big bucks and not getting what we expect really IRKS me!!!!! Besides, it's way off back from the highway.......did I say it's QUIET????

RE: Just Need to Whine a Little

There will NOT be a shutdown...........GO ENJOY :B AND stop the whining......you sound like our congress Dont be bad mouthing our congress, they have a 7% approval rating. :) BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAH....that much?????

RE: Just Need to Whine a Little

Two years ago everyone said "there will be no shutdown". We were on BLM land in Moab.....it shut down, they kicked us off the piece of dirt we were on (NO amenities). Guess where we are this year!!!!! I don't trust them, so we're making reservations for PRIVATE campgrounds. I can't believe they did it 2 yrs ago, now it won't surprise me (yeah, shut down the moneymakers). Good luck....I feel for you!

RE: Dish Network Chat

I always start off in the chat section saying "we are RVers, full-time RVing. I need my service location changed.". Twice now I've had them ask for my full address......where we are camping. FRUSTRATING, especially if we're boondocking!! So now I tell them I don't have one, to change the zip code and if they ask for full address I'll have to speak to their supervisor. Amazing how it finally gets done! I have found it easier just to use a random local address - I usually check out goggle maps and cut and paste the address of the local fire station - saves a lot of going back and forth, even though all they need is the zip code .... Good idea...I'll try that next time! :)

RE: First time heading south

You should be okay if you leave in October. Remember the high priced, most sought after parks may already be reserved. Do a search here for parks....maybe just title it YUMA and see what everyone recommends. :) We're going to go to Quartzsite (in fact we're in Utah right now...heading south) and we'll be boondocking on the desert......so we don't worry about reservations. :)

RE: What GPS Do You Have

We have a Rand McNally that DH uses.....I back it up and make corrections with a mapping on my Verizon SmartPhone. :) Between the two of them we haven't made a wrong turn in the last year!

RE: Opinions Sought from Experienced Full-Timers

Fulltiming 1 year...certainly not as much experience as others. I won't answer most of your questions, because I feel they're more than my knowledge can handle. However, you say you don't know if you can find good quality units on a 2nd hand market. Well, YES, you can! GOOD units ARE for sale....the question is, can YOU determine what's been done to a unit, had it been maintained properly, are you willing to spend TIME to research? We researched for over a year....actually, ever since we first got married 10 yrs ago. We found an Open Range that had been used once for 2 weeks and the old guy couldn't do it any more (he was 88). He died 4 yrs later and family put the rig up for sale. it's been the BEST as far as RVs go. Yes, we do maintenance, yes, we've added "our touch" to the rig. But that's part of the fun. Do NOT depend on a salesman, whether for a business or a private seller, to tell you the truth...........do YOUR research. and good luck
