RE: Dump Station Etiquette???

If there is a line, I just pay $3 and dump at Flying J when I get home home. Since I paid there, I take my time and use the tank rinse and flush several times. No line, I will dump at the campground and rinse.

RE: Charleston SC

We stayed at James Island County Park for July 4th last year! It is a great campground! We will certainly visit it again!

RE: What do you do with ash/coals ?

I put the fire out at the end of the night, then next morning dump ashes into a trashbag and take to the dumpster. Never thought about doing it any other way. Mike Exactly^^^^ I use a Weber Smokey Joe Charcoal BBQ for grilling Fill it up with briquettes, place lid back on when done grilling....add more as needed then last night I leave lid off and let them burn down to ash Next morning dump in trashbag and place in dumpster with rest of our trash I would NOT even consider just dumping then next to roadway Don't do it at home...why do it at CG???? Actually, I dump the ash across the yard at home. It is good for the soil. I dumped it with out bag of trash in a pile next to the road. The campground staff does come daily to pick up trash from campers. I will get some large trash bags atleast to use next time.

What do you do with ash/coals ?

We have been camping for years, and have never had this issue to worry about. Most places that we have been at offer fire rings. But, a few places do not. We stayed at Ocean Lakes in Myrtle Beach for Thanksgiving for a long weekend. We took or washing machine drum for our fire pit since Ocean Lakes does not provide fire pits, but does allow fires. My question is what is the proper etiquette to dispose of ash/cool ember pieces when loading up the fire pit? Does anyone know? No one in our group had any idea. We place made hosed the ash/hot embers down really well before loading up and dumped next to the road with the trash. This seemed like an okay thing to do, but really had me wondering if that is what we should have done.

RE: Cleaning out black tank for winter

Fill with water and let it sit a few days. Do for a bumpy ride and it is slosh around, and drain it...

RE: Halloween Or Not

We are camping this year at our local county park for Halloween weekend. We are hoping that the park does not put a stop to the public coming in to trick or treating. We have candy and decorations for the site and are ready to go. Luckily we are SC also, which is a state that his less restrictions than most others. We live in a rural part of town, and we don't get trick or treaters at home, besides two neighbor kids. So we are hoping to see some while camping!

RE: Nascar Follies

How are they going to manage all that dirt? And how is it going to stay on those high banks? They covered it in dirt and held the World of Outlaws there in the early 2000's. It can be done. They will probably use nice and tacky red southern clay, which is common for dirt tracks in the South East.

RE: Velcro uses

We use velcro for the remotes also! The were also getting misplaced between 5 people, falling off the arm and in the couch, etc. Now they all hand on the wall in their dedicated rooms!

RE: Savannah, GA or lower SC along I-95

Santee Coper State Park is right at I-95 and I-26 in SC. It is nice and quiet.

RE: First goof up, I have to share

When we were pop up camping years ago, we headed to the beach. We got there, and neither of us had the key to unlock the pop up drop down door or the lock from the hitch. They were at home on the counter! We had to drill the fold down door/step lock out, and we just removed the entire pin from the truck leaving the ball attached to the camper. And one pop up trip years ago, my mom and aunt decided their purses were safer locked in the van than the pop up. They both had a van key, just incase one got lost... or locked in the car or something. That was a great idea until neither one took the van key out of their purse before they locked the door!

RE: Selecting a roof coating brand

I just used Heng's in the organge can on my 95 Pace Arrow motorhome. It looks like it is holding up well a month later after applying two coats. I am thinking of ordering one more gallon and apply a third coat.

RE: Air Conditioning how many do not use it.

We are in hot and humid SC. We run ours if it is over 72* inside or humid, which is pretty much April-November, and in between if needed at other times...

RE: Reservations for WRONG dates...

Yup, did it once when reserving 4 sites for a group. Thankfully my wife noticed when she went to email the reservation info to the rest of the group. Moral of the story, I'm not allowed to reserve sites anymore!!! I received email confirmation for both sites, but I didn't even open them. I just through them in my reservation folder a few months ago. I will check now. I am thankful that they at least called and worked with me.

RE: Reservations for WRONG dates...

Was that "another senior moment" - On your part; or theirs ? Guy I have year before I’m a senior, but that doesn’t meant I’m losing it. I’m about 95% sure I told her the right dates in the phone. Their online reservation system has been down during their renovations. They want people to call and book so they can make sure people are aware of everything going on construction wise. We can still see the avability online though. I kept telling her I was site number 21 and she said it’s booked and I wondered why it showed available. I just assumed it was due to the construction. But it was due to it being a different week. We typically go here after work on Wednesday or Thursday for a weekend get away 24 minutes from home. We would have been disappointed next weekend had we went and not had a reservation and they been booked.

RE: Reservations for WRONG dates...

It happened many times when we owned our park. Be careful of your date entries, so asnot to confuse months. spell out the month, do not use its numerical 6 (june) 7 ( july ) can easily be confused with the dates. Other nations list day before month Thankfully you had a park ranger on top of it. I called and made this one over the phone. But I’m Glad they worked with us.

Reservations for WRONG dates...

Has anyone else ever made their reservations for the wrong dates? We booked our local county park for next weekend... or so I though about a month ago. About 8:30 tonight, my phone rang and I answered it. It was a pro ranger from our local park wanting to know if we were going to make it to either of the two spots that we booked tonight. That is not what we wanted to hear at 8:30 on Thursday. I am not 100% sure if this was my screw up or theirs, but luckily they were understanding and had two spots side by side for next weekend and changed our reservations for no fee.
