RE: RV cover

My Adco cover lasted around 12 yrs before I finally had to chuck it, 2 yrs ago I bought a replacement cover from camping world, ripped apart a month ago, this fall I will probably go back to Adco. Mike

RE: How to camp with electric only

Newbie question here. I have a reservation at a campground with electric hookup only and no water hookup. It was the best I could do over the Memorial Day weekend. At least it's cheap. How do you normally stretch your water in that situation? Can I drive to some station in the park (it's a government park) and fill my fresh water tank? Maybe at the dump station? I know you're not supposed to use the typical water at a dump station, but maybe at these semi-rustic campgrounds they also provide potable water? If your worried about running short of water for the holiday weekend, most camping stores sell inclosed 5 gallon pails that come with a water spigot at the base. The pails fit nicely on your picnic table. Just fill it when coming into the campground. here somthing similar to what I have, Mike

RE: Leveling Blocks vs jack pads

I use 5/4 X 6" PT decking boards for my leveling blocks, used the same boards for 20yrs. I've also used them to keep my outdoor rug from blowing away and come in handy when I have to level my gas grill or coleman stove. Mike

Massasoit State Park, MA May Reservation?

From what I have read on Reserve America, Massachusetts will make a decision on May-4 if they extend the closing of state campgrounds. My booking that I made months ago starts on May 7th. I still cant find any new info on whats going on with the state campgrounds in MA. Read on another thread that PA state campgrounds are allowing old reservations starting next month but not any new ones, maybe MA will do the same? Would like this weekend to take the winter cover off the TT, de-winterize and pack the trailer and not find out on monday whether or not I will be camping. Anyone hear anything? or should I just give up and start my garden this weekend. Thanks for your replies Mike

RE: Is anyone going anywhere?

"Is anyone going anywhere?" Every April we start our camping season with a local trip a few towns over. With everthing closed down we decided to go camping without the camper. Here's us doing day trips at the campground to do some fly fishing, enjoying the sun and do a lunch on our gas grill. Making the best of what has been a tough situation here in ct Mike

RE: Cruel Summer

I don't agree with the article But it will certainly be a down year for camping. I have missed/cancelled 3 trips already. Hopefully things will improve by summer. Down year for camping, worse for the cruise lines. Who knows In the end this could steer people over to Rving. My april trip canceled, May trip probably canceled, hoping I can keep my June trip in Hudson Valley, NY Mike

RE: What's Opened?

"What's Opened?" Ct opened fishing season early this year because of the epidemic, I had to cancel reservations for a very small local campground that we go river fishing every april. As of now I am only allowed to drive to the campground with no rv and fish directly on the river. River is stocked by the state DEP. So in 2 weeks and if nothing changes I will make a day trip to fish on the river. Most state parks in ct have reduced visitation or ever closed. Land trust trails are still open Mike

RE: Hello newbie here...looking for suggestions/ideas :)

2" memory foam helps. Roll it up and fold in half to store in bathtub in my X17C. Had to cut to fit. yeah that is what we use, when traveling we fold the memory foam in half, roll it up and then use bungee cords to keep it compact Mike

RE: Full-time and don't/didn't like it?

Were still working 40 but our plans is to keep a S&B home and use it as a launch off point for extended trips. We see no appeal for full timing, subject to change of course. Mike

RE: Don't come to Massachusetts

latest from CT, schools closed for the next 2 weeks. CT & NY governers are meeting tomorrow to discuss something similar concerning reduced gatherings or only takeout at restaurants. Lots of retail businesses have already changed their hrs of operation or even closed, things seem to be snowballing. Mike

RE: Winhall Brook COE campground VT

We also have been there many times, yup I think they don't recommend anything over 42'to pass over the bridge. Last time we were there guy pulls in with a 45'DP, he couldn't cross the bridge going the correct way so he went down the north loop and came back up to try to cross. it took him several attemps going back & forth to finaly squeeze across. For a short time I was worried he was going to get his class A stuck on the bridge. Park rangers were not happy that the attendent allowed the guy to pull in. A must is the ADA rail trail that follows the river, very scenic. At the end of the rail trail, continue on a moderate wooded hiking trial for a mile to Angle Falls that overlooks a vally... pack a lunch as the 2 will take half a day. Under the bridge is swimming at the river. There is shallow and deeper pools with small stone banks perfect for setting up a beach chair, playing tunes and having a cold adult beverage, just picture something out of a Norman Rockwell Painting :C Mike

RE: Karaoke & Sing-along around Campfires

I always travel with my guitar. I'm always trying to improve my playing, which means I have to "practice" every day. When camping, I generally bring the guitar outside. Years ago, I was playing next to a campfire at Yellowstone, in the Norris Basin campground. At a minute past 8:00PM the host came over and told me to knock it off, because it was now "quiet hours." Sheesh. Last spring, at a campsite in Fort DeSoto Park Campground near St. Petersburg FL, the neighbor's dog howled (inside their RV) every time I was playing. Again - sheesh. I'm a pretty good guitarist, although the evidence in these two stories would suggest otherwise. I'm always happy when someone stops by and enjoys the music or joins in. -Speak I'd join in too but I can't carry a tune. but I'd stop by with a couple of cold beers as I am a good listener! :C Mike

RE: The Coronavirus

It gets annoying listing to the press 24/7 on this, but makes people think twice about their actions, surroundings and possible future travel plans. That I guess is a good thing, as this will pass Mike

RE: Campgrounds Near Newport, VT On our way up to Canada, We have stayed at Char-Bo Campgrounds in Derby, VT for a couple of days, about 5 miles from Newport. Clean well maintained campground. lots of large, level back in full hook sites. I'm almost sure they have 50 amp. Prouty Beach & Campground is in Newport, VT never stayed there but saw it across the lake from a restaurant we were dining at. Campground looked more conjested...but we were looking at it from a distance. Good luck and have a safe trip Mike
