RE: Driving through D.C.

I did it once but not by choice. Our GPS took us through by mistake. We realized we were in the wrong lane and even though I had my turn signal on,no one would let us over. We eventually saw signs for 95 and got out of there but I would not recommend it. Get a campsite and then drop your daughter off.

RE: Homeless people coming to your favorite campground!

I'm sure many of us have seen this at one time or another. A number of years ago, a family group was staying at a state park we were at.Their campsite was pretty run down having one tent,one pickup truck and several tarps. I know the ranger stopped by daily to talk to them. They never caused any issues except putting old tires in the dumpster. But the homeless problem is real. Much of it caused by government.Many of the homeless are mentally ill who have no where to go since they closed down many mental hospitals in our state. And I recently read California has half of the homeless in the country. I don't know if that's because of the warm weather or better government welfare or both. But it's a real problem that isn't being addressed properly.Wouldn't it be great if the government took old military bases and allowed the homeless to live their where they could be given help with healthcare and informed of job opportunities?

RE: Pennsylvania Route Recommendations

Rt 6 has a lot to see. The Lumber Museum would be cool for the kids as would Kinzua Bridge.There are several state / federal parks along the way. Tioga Hammond Lakes is a federal campground with a lake and swimming beach. Hills Creek is a Pa State park not far off Rt 6.

RE: Myrtle Beach - Ocean Lakes, Pirateland or Lakewood

I would vote for Huntington Beach State Park. Short walk to the beach,nice nature lodge with nature walks, camp store and tour the former home of the Huntingtons. Some FHU sites, the rest W&E.It is much,much cheaper than the others.Just down the road from Murrel's Inlet.

RE: Using RV in winter, including water

years ago we were in Gallup,New Mexico and it got down to 15 and was snowing. We disconnected the water from the hydrant even though it had heat tape on it and just used the water in the tank. No problems. But that was just for one night. The next night we were in Williams ,AZ and it was a balmy 32. I would say it depends on how low the temperature gets,how long it stays cold and if it's windy. The wind blowing through cracks or across water lines can freeze things up quickly.

RE: Florida trip

Either end of October or beginning of April. You'll miss the snowbirds and the temps are usually nice that time of year.

RE: Towing through New York City

RE: 2020 North Carolina Camping Destinations

We stayed at Frisco National Park Campground in Cape Hatteras National Park. No hookups but generators allowed and some real nice big sites. Store with gas right outside entrance. Nice beach and close to Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum and Ferry to Oracoke Island. Further north on the island is Oregon Inlet NP campground. They do have electric sites but no shade.Also close to the beach.

RE: Water Fill up - Flying J?

Most Flying J's have water and dump at the RV lanes. If you get a Flying J card, you get 8 cents a gallon off diesel and maybe 5 off gas. The RV lanes make it nice to fill up and easier to get in and out. I'm not sure if you have to pay for water. And be sure to move after filling up. Some of the pumps have stickers asking you to move forward after filling.

RE: Charge for each pet ??? your thoughts

I would avoid a place like that if at all possible. We clean up after our dog.We bring spring water for her to drink so the dog doesn't use anything unless they have a dog park. Now I would pay extra for that.

RE: West Virginia Recommendations Big Rig Friendly

So getting to pipestem in a 45 footer with toad is no problem? Just wondered about the roads after getting off I77.It has been about 20 years since we were there but I don't remember any issues.

RE: Ohio's New Online Reservation System!

So if you're on the road and you stop at the campground you can't get a site even if they have many open sites?

RE: asking for suggestions/opinions

If you want one and can afford it,go for it. I prefer a TT because it doesn't take up room in the pick up bed. But 5th wheels have some advantages. They generally tow better, they are some what easier to back into a site and you can go to a slightly longer unit and fit in the same space because part of the unit goes over the truck bed instead of behind the truck. A "Goose Neck" style of 5th wheel doesn't use up space in the bed of the truck. On the new ones the Ball flips upside down when you are not using it so the truck bed floor remains flat. Now, some people say the goose neck style is a rougher ride. Last summer at the park I met a man that had the plate style of 5th wheel but,,, his plate just dropped into the same hole in his truck bed that the ball of the goose neck would have gone into. It does take a couple of strong people to lift and remove the plate from the truck using this type of thing though. So are you saying you can put bicycles, a generator etc in the bed with a 5th wheel?

RE: Longhorn Ranch RV Resort

Yes,we stayed there in 2016. Tt is very nice.Right on the Wind River. We stayed there when we left Yellowstone. As others have said,it is generally too far to commute. If you can do without hookups,get a site in the park. We stayed at Madison for 4 nights.It is centrally located. Yellowstone is as big as Rhode Island so it can take longer than you think especially when it's crowded or there is a bear or buffalo traffic jam.

RE: Maryland/ Delaware Area

Assateague State park has some electric hookups. NP has no hookups but allows generators in 2 loops. Kiptopeke State Park is in Va about an hour south on the DelMar Pinninsula. They have full hooks and cable. In both cases it is a short walk to the beach. But anywhere at the shore you need to book months or a year in advance. Everyone wants the weekends. But if you book from Sunday to Thursday you can sometimes find a site especially in spring or fall. We love September at the shore. Fewer people and easier to book a site.

RE: Trouble with California

I am generally a law abiding citizen. I support law enforcement. But I wish our government would care more about removing the 12 million illegal aliens than about it's own citizens. We have a constitution that gives us rights. These rights are not just for criminals, they are for our own protection. Read about out history before and during the Revolutionary War. Then you will understand why we have them and why we should protect them. I know people say "what's the problem if you have nothing to hide"? What if they stop you walking down the street minding your own business? What if they demand to enter your home anytime they want? Our Founding Fathers put limits on the government for our protections.
