RE: Sealing Granite Countertops-How and How Often?

I do it whenever I think about it. Which is usually no more than once a year. It’s very easy and not too time consuming. I use something I picked up at Bed Bath and Beyond, but I don’t remember the name. It seems to work fine. The process is similar to waxing a car.

RE: Campground in Wilmington NC

The KOA in Wilmington is pretty nice. I'd say above average for a KOA. We've stayed there twice over the years. It's convenient to the city. Good luck to your daughter!

RE: Need an Overnight stop off I-95 near Walterboro SC

We stayed at New Green Acres one time. It was in January, and dark when we got there and dark when we left, so I couldn't see much. But it worked well for an easy overnight stop with hookups.

RE: Down to Road trek?

About 2.5 years ago we downsized from a 35' Class A to a Winnebago Travato. Yes, it's certainly different from the A, but for us the differences are overwhelmingly positive. We gladly traded the room for the much better driving experience, no need for a dinghy, etc. We honestly haven't had a single regret. We enjoyed our ten years with the A very much. When our boys were younger we needed the space, so it was well worth the hassle. But now we're so glad that it's so easy to take off and go, stress free driving, etc.

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

Paws4me - sorry. No worries. It happens to all of us occasionally! I was just really confused there for awhile (not that it takes much nowadays). :)

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

This is different than your prior statement. Your prior statement said not to get a big dog if you can't walk it :? Can you please show me where I posted that? 'Cause I sure don't see it. I believe you've confused me with another poster. And note that in my previous statement I said "big, energetic dog." The second word there is key. Certainly some larger breeds are couch potatoes. But most aren't, especially when they're younger. We get so many dogs turned into rescues and shelters because the owner grossly underestimated the dog's exercise needs. IME it's far and away the number one reason larger dogs are given up. Certainly there are many energetic small breeds. But most of those can be exercised inside (and with little movement on the owner's part) when necessary by tossing a toy up and down a hallway or around a living room.

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

Dogs are very accomodating. With a few exceptions, they can and will adjust to the owner's physical abilities. I strongly disagree with that. IME and IMO it's a recipe for disaster for a physically disabled or elderly person to get a big, energetic dog. Working in rescue I've seen so many bad outcomes from that. The dogs are generally the ones who suffer the most, but many of the owners do, too.

RE: Social Security disability

There are about 200 SSDI compassionate allowance conditions. That means if you're diagnosed with one of those you get a slam dunk acceptance for SSDI. Not surprisingly, many cancers are on the list. If your friend has been diagnosed with a cancer that's on the list in all likelihood he will not need an attorney. Filing is generally straightforward, and I've heard of several people with one of those conditions getting approval within two weeks of filing. In addition to an increased monthly benefit, a 62 yo person who qualifies for SSDI will be eligible for Medicare in two years (after 24 SSDI payments). Speeding up the time frame for Medicare qualification can make a big difference in insurance costs. That doesn't sound like it would be a huge thing for your friend, since if I'm reading right he'll be 63 in December. So even if he were approved for SSDI in a couple of weeks it would only speed up his Medicare qualification date by about three months. But for someone just turned 62 it could speed it up by almost a year. SSDI compassionate allowance

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

I agree that much has to do with the individual dog's personality, and the level and type of socialization the dog receives. You certainly can overcome negative experiences, but most people don't want to have to do that, and especially if they haven't had significant dog experience. And I think it's good to stack the deck in your own favor. All that said -- Our Shih Tzu is an excellent traveler. They're low energy and are commonly said to be the least barky of the toy breeds (which is absolutely true for him--he's a very quiet dog). He gets in the RV, curls up and goes to sleep. He's always eager to explore wherever we stop, but when we hit the road again he goes back to sleep. He almost never barks. He's very friendly to people and other dogs, but mostly he only really cares about me and so doesn't see the need to be bothered by other stuff. He only needs short walks for exercise, so it's not hard to tire him out for travel or when we'll be out sightseeing. Although he doesn't *need* a lot of exercise, in good (cool) weather he can easily handle three to four mile walks or hikes. You do have to be very careful with them in hot weather, though. So a good genny and AC is a must when traveling in the summer in most areas. And this is perhaps an exception, but our former beagle was a very good traveler. She'd also curl up and go to sleep as soon as we hit the road, and rarely barked. She was pretty darn lazy. My concern with another Sheltie would be that they are known for being one of the more vocal breeds, which of course can be challenging to deal with in a campground. And many I've met have been rather high strung. Although I will say that one of my best friends had one that I believe would have made an excellent RV dog. She was calm and easy going. Good luck, and thank you for doing your homework!

RE: west virginia

We've been to the Smokies twice this year staying at Riverbend Campground and Camp Riverslanding. We love the Smokies but there is nothing like Camping in all parts of WV. In the north we love Stonewall Jackson, it is by far the nicest campground with large sites, full hook ups, and quiet. There is all kinds of amenities at the resort. Nearby Weston is home to the old Allegheny Lunatic Asylum where you can take tours. You are also close to Elkins, Buchannon, Fairmont, & Morgantown. We stayed at Stonewall Jackson a couple of years ago and loved it!

RE: Yipping little dogs!! Ugh!!

If I remember the Dog Whisperer videos correctly little dogs make noise because they are scared/nervous. I think that's probably at least somewhat true. Our Shih Tzu is not a barker. He's probably the quietest dog we've ever had, and all the rest have been medium/large dogs. But he's also super confident. He's been charged by numerous larger dogs and he just looks at them like "WTH is your problem?" He has the same "WTH" reaction when he's around other little dogs who are barky. The only thing that bothers him are rumble strips. :E

RE: Charleston SC

The campground at James Island County Park. It's a fairly easy 15-20 minute drive into the downtown/historic district. They also have a shuttle bus if you don't want the hassle of driving and finding a place to park.

RE: Is it too much to ask...

I buy unscented deodorant, but in general I don't find the scented variety to be horrible. But . . . Trash bags? Swiffer dusting cloths? Why do these things need to be scented at all, and especially with horrible fake smells? The odor of ones trash is never going to be improved by adding more stench.

RE: Real small motor homes; value?

Different approach to RVing most consider themself travelers not campers. That sums it up exactly. And I think to a big extent the OP answered his own question by asking if they're a terrible value and then in the next sentence lamenting the high cost of used units. As MidnightSadie said, the Bs hold their value much better than other RVs. We traded a 35' Class A for our B a little over two years ago. We had the A for ten years and it was great for our needs then--we were traveling with two growing boys and two dogs and usually stayed in one spot for a few days. Now it's just me, DH and a small dog and we enjoy road trips, staying somewhere different each night. The B is absolutely perfect for us now, and we've never once regretted trading the A for it. For us the tradeoff in space and having to spend all of two minutes wiping the bath down after showers is well worth the benefits.

RE: Hats Off to Marcus Lemonis

U.S. Flag Code (i) The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. "In any manner whatsoever" seems that it would cover cases like this. It would be hard to credibly argue that the flag isn't being flown at least in part for advertising purposes, to attract attention to the business. If not then why not fly a normal, regulation sized flag? That is every bit as patriotic. What it lacks is the ability to grab attention for the business. Also, I have concerns about such huge flags being able to be flown at half staff without touching the ground, and being able to be taken down if necessary without touching the ground. And sooner or later all flags get worn and need to be taken down. (b) The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise. Unfortunately, violations of the Flag Code are epidemic in this country.

RE: Hats Off to Marcus Lemonis

And a lot of us just consider it extreme marketing using patriotism, and the flag to generate free ink for Camping World. Not to mention that a very good argument could be made that it's a glaring violation of the U.S. Flag Code. It's a disgusting level of disrespect for the flag and one of the clearest representations of the "all about me" attitude I've ever had the misfortune to witness. And yes, I watched the interview before posting. It most definitely didn't improve my opinion of him, but rather reinforced that he's using the flag--and his violation of the local ordinances--as a publicity and marketing gimmick.

FDA lists brands of dog food linked to DCM

Link to FDA Lots of good info there, including the dog food brands that have been most commonly linked to reported cases of DCM, and info on affected breeds.

RE: Myrtle Beach

Still no beach. Honestly, and I know everyone has their tastes. But for most of us. the only reason to go to the beach, is for the beach. I want to be able to step out of my RV, and onto the beach. If I had to stay more than 50 yards from the beach. I would rather be in the mountains. And when we say we are going to the beach. We don't mean lake. This year we are going to the OBX. What time we will not be on the beach, will be spent on the deck looking out over the ocean. Watching the moon come up out of the ocean, and watching the sun rise out of the ocean as well. What could be better. Here's the thing, though. Everything is not about the ones responding. I assume original posters word things the way they do for a reason. The OP here said nothing about beach, but did mention being convenient to shows, other attractions and restaurants. Had he specifically said beachfront I wouldn't have mentioned Willow Tree (I was the first person on this thread to mention it). He did not specify that was important. Now maybe it is and he just assumed people knew he wanted ocean front. But being from St. Augustine I'm guessing the ocean isn't a unique, unusual thing for him and that perhaps he was going to MB for other reasons. Like the shows, restaurants and other attractions he did mention.

RE: CBD oil

Twodownzero, you might find this an informative and educational read, especially the "What about the Feds" section. I tried to copy/paste here, but the forum software isn't cooperating.

RE: CBD oil

Hemp and marijuana are made from the same plant. With limited exception, it is a crime to possess any quantity of either anywhere in the United States. A quick Google search of "where is CBD oil legal 2019" results in multiple reputable sites that disprove your assertion. According to WebMd marijuana is fully legal in: Alaska California Colorado Maine Massachusetts Michigan Nevada Oregon Vermont Washington Washington D.C. And medical marijuana is legal in: Alabama (CBD only) Arizona Connecticut Delaware Florida Georgia (CBD only) Hawaii Illinois Indiana (CBD only) Iowa (CBD only) Kansas (CBD only) Kentucky (CBD only) Louisiana Maryland Minnesota Mississippi (CBD only) Missouri Montana New Hampshire New Jersey New Mexico New York North Carolina (CBD only) North Dakota Ohio Oklahoma (CBD only) Pennsylvania Rhode Island South Carolina (CBD only) Tennessee (CBD only) Texas (CBD only) Utah Virginia (CBD only) West Virginia Wisconsin (CBD only) Wyoming (CBD only) Where all marijuana is illegal: Idaho Nebraska South Dakota I don't know how "medical" marijuana is defined in all states (whether a doctor's prescription is required, etc.). Here in mine it now means I can walk into a store and buy CBD products just like I can any other vitamin/mineral/herbal supplement.
