RE: Trip to Northeast states

Northeast Trip: I thought I would do a follow up on our trip. We had a wonderful trip. We took in a lot of the sights and places that everyone mentioned and a few extra. We met a lot of very nice people, even though I was told the East coast people aren't as friendly as Midwest. We did have our dog papers and they did check them at some campgrounds and Canada. We did not do the EZ pass just paid as we went. We covered 18 states and Canada. Our truck had no problems with the mountains. We had great weather. Thanks again. We are ready to go back and see more! Alaska next year! Glad you enjoyed yourself and had a safe trip! :C Yeah I hear the same thing about us east coast folks not being as friendly, I can't really make comparisons about the west coast folks this point in our lives but most of the campers/Rvers we have come across have been easygoing & friendly!

RE: Boycott “No Campfires”

At this point in our lives we still enjoy a good campfire especially on those crisp nights and sometimes I will still cook over one. Now that said we don't specifically look for campgrounds that allow fires as our interest is more for what the area has to offer. 1 small pet peeve here.. I would like to Boycott campgrounds the sell green firewood! ;) Mike

RE: Help selecting East Coast location with lots of variables...

I would second the Knoebels suggestion but more towards their Lake Glory campground, they have full hook up sites for you and also have cambins, plus I believe they allow around 10 people per site. The cabins I think are rustic meaning a place to sleep and electric but the bath house is close. X3 when it comes to complete value, we go every year at Knoebel's campground: No charge for extra people at your campsite, NO admission charge to amusement park. You can bring your pets into the amusement park also. Lots of cabin rentals. Campground Bus stops that pick you up every 15 minutes... no walking. Clean family campground. Hope I don't sound like a ad! ;) Mike

RE: I Think I'm Outta Here

Try owning a hybrid, check out that forum. yup, I think we've lost more campers than Rvers on this site. Mike

RE: A Few Places to check out for RV Parks.

Yes, we use all of the mentioned ones and google maps is a huge help has google maps right on the home page of each campground/Rv park, makes things easy and convenient Mike

RE: When giving restaurant (or other venues) suggestions

My wife and I are both Gluten Free, tough to find any reviews that will work for us, usually we will find 1 or 2 bland plates that is GF and that will be it. We had a few exceptions though, one restaurant at Cooperstown NY, the chef substituted the ingredients for us and the meals turned out fantastic, another a seafood restaurant called Claws and Rockport,ME they had a large GF section on their menu, one item in particular was New England Clam Chowder, we actually did 2 lunch stops and 1 meal as the place was that good! :C Mike

RE: RV Campground Question

So far never seen that up here in our highly regulated northeast, add hard winters as another possible reason. Makes sense about park models. Mike

RE: New York City

The only thing I might be concerned about Liberty Harbor is I read on the reviews about some low voltage problems during peak summer times. That aside we would return again to LH, just to close and convenient to NYC. Mike We were there last year in mid July (upper 90's) and never had a voltage issue. It is an OK place to park and see NYC, but don't think you'll be sitting outside by your RV. Yup, we were there late April. Cool weather made it good for walking around NYC Mike

RE: Newer RVs....ugh

Wow, after reading a few post here lately about quality issues I SURE am glad I have no interest in a new RV. We currently have 2 livin lites, a 2013 TC and a 2016 21RBS tt. I know some folks here have 2 rvs and enjoy what both has to offer. Presently DH wants to sell the TC but I love that thing and he enjoys the tt. Soooo we shall see, like the motto sez, happy wife, happy life! LOL! Have a great weekend! Start of second year I owned my present trailer I noticed the front face starting to de-lam, went on roof and found a obvious roof seam had popped. Took it back to the dealership, they replace the whole front face of the trailer.everything covered under the 2 year warranty. Got the trailer back in 4 days. Never a problem since. Hoping to bridge my present truck and TT for another few years before our next RV. Everything long since paid for. :C Mike

RE: Out of the blue....

Gary thank you for sharing your post! When the rallies were popular here we had the opportunity to meet some of the most friendly folks and to this day we are still meeting up at least 2X per year. :C Had some enjoyable conversations with members on the PM level also! Mike

RE: School me in public parks camping...

Yes on campground as a first place to check reviews, the review home pages have links to google earth of the campgrounds & most have correct links to the online reservations. Sometimes I will also check google & trip adviser if I don't see enough reviews on campground Some of the public campgrounds are brutal on getting a reservations to the point where I have had "seconds" to book a reservation when the window opens, gets very frustrating. :( For the most part I find private campgrounds do a better job on Overall campground cleanliness IMO Mike

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

Thanks everyone for your recommendations. I guess I'm leaning toward a Sheltie again. I spoke to our local vet that we had used in the past and he is going to get in touch with some breeders in our area, so waiting to hear from him Thanks Mike

RE: Heading to Maine-Need Suggestions

Camden Hills State Park is very scenic. Largest sites are up in front, closest to rte 1 that are better for the MH's. State park is also across the road which has a ocean trail, overlooks and picnic area. Check out ward winning Claws restaurant in Rockland and River Ducks Ice Cream in Camden, both most stops! Don't forget to visit Owls Head & Rockland Breakwater Lighthouses, both about 30 minutes away! If your ambitious try hiking 1300' Mt Megunticook, spectacular views!! Hope this helps Mike
