RE: Deceptive traffic citations

The cost of these speeding tickets is ridiculous. No penalties for illegal immigration. Just for American citizens.

RE: February Camping From Long Island?

Virginia has several state parks open year round. Four parks with developed campgrounds have full service camping available. Visit Shenandoah River, Douthat, Hungry Mother and Pocohantas. We stayed at the Shenandoah River and Pocohantas. Both are nice and both have hookups.We stayed at the first one over Christmas one year.

RE: Assateague Island

Never stayed there in December, but did in October. It was chilly for sure. But you can have some nice sunny days too. The State Park is the only one with electric and they only have one loop. Some of the loops in the NP allow generators.

RE: I-77 to I-26 to I-95 - Carolinas, Georgia to Florida

We have used that route before and will us part of it in 2 weeks. No problem with diesel. If you have a Flying J card, you get 8 cents a gallon off and many Flying J's have separate RV islands.

RE: Best RV Resort or Campground

Ft Wilderness in Disney World is probably the nicest we stayed in. Also the most expensive. Mustang Run near Oklahoma City is very nice. All roads and sites are concrete. Nicely maintained grass, pool,rec center,dog run and the bathrooms were super nice. Very reasonable prices,too. Pipestem State resort park in West Virginia is very nice. The campground is nice but they have so much to do. 2 restaurants,golf,tennis,a lake for fishing,horseback riding,indoor and out door pools, archery,nature walks etc.

RE: Sometime we win...National Forests and Wildlife Refuge

This is a stupid ruling. If managed correctly, our National Forests should be logged to prevent fires,benefit wildlife and make money that can be used to pay for upgrades to our National Parks and Forests.

RE: Seeking expert opinion: thinning vs prescribed burns

I won't say I am an expert on forest management, BUT, I am chairman of our local water authority. We have over 2,000 acres in our water shed. About 30 years ago, we hired a forester who draws up plans for which part of our water shed gets logged. We do a logging project every 2 years. He lays out what to cut and what to leave.We make any where from $50,000 to $175,000 which we have used to replace our older water mains. That has saved our customers millions in fee increases. We have never had a forest fire and the deer population is thriving. We need to manage our National Forest.It can make money which can be used to keep up our federal parks and campgrounds, it will help prevent fires and be beneficial to wildlife if done correctly.

RE: Grand Canyon Early April

We went to the Grand Canyon in April 1999. Weather was about 50 degrees. Not crowded. There was snow on the ground but the roads were clear.

RE: Louisiana to Hershey, Pa. Which Route????

81 is good. We travel it a lot. Many Flying J's along the way.Most with separate RV islands. They offer a discount for Good Sam members and if you have the Flying J card, you get 8 cents a gallon off diesel. Be sure you fill up at the Winchester,VA Flying J as gas and diesel is much higher here than in VA. If you want a good over night stop, Claytor Lake State Park in southern VA is good with water and electric hookups and some pull throughs.

RE: RV sales are slipping

The beginning of the article is full of negativity. But if you read on, RV sales are still at record highs and,one reason for less shipments is because they built too many the previous year. Yes, we could be heading for a downturn.After all, we have had an economy that took off slowly and then really heated up the past 3 years. Still,consumer spending is still strong,unemployment low and wages are up. All good signs.

RE: Yellowstone Grant/Madison CG's

We stayed in Madison in 2016 with a 26ft TT. It was a pull through. We could pull in, but not enough room to lull out because of close trees. No problem,I backed out. I do not remember seeing large motorhomes or large trailers while we were there. I think anything over 30 would have limited choices.

RE: west virginia

We have camped at several campgrounds in WV. Caanan Valley State Park is in the north. Very nice. We have also stayed at Trout Pond which is Forest Service campground. Very nice in the northeast area. Burnsville Lake and Sutton Lake are in the central part of the state and run by the COE.Somone mentioned Pipestem. That is probably one of the nicest state parks in the country.There is so much to do there. Tennis,golf,mini golf,horseback riding,nature walks,swimming pools etc.

RE: I 75 thru Atlanta

I've gone through there at night and early in the morning. There is no good time to go through Atlanta. Find another route to get where you're going.

RE: Dogs that dont bark at people

We have a black Lab,Maggie. She rarely barks. They love her at our bank. They give her biskets and lots of belly rubs.She gets along with people and other dogs. Very docile. But she loves to play ball.

RE: Tariffs trip up the all-American RV industry

This isn't Trump's trade war,it's our war with countries that have been screwing us for years.Many politicians and businesses complained about it but did nothing. Yes there will be some pain just like when my wife's job went to Mexico because of NAFTA. But if we get an agreement,it will be to our benefit. You would think the tax cuts and cuts in regulations, they would offset the cost of the tarrifs. With the economy roaring along like it is, these industries will get through it.

RE: nothing seems to be open in pa and Ohio

If you want to go on a weekend, it can be tough. We have found if you can go in on a Sunday ,then your chances of finding a site greatly improves.
