RE: We always unhook, even on an overnight stop

There is no right answer to this. You can't prepare for every emergency. Do what you've gotta do for your personal comfort and safety. As the saying goes, we have a winnah! If we tried to prepare for every emergency we'd never leave the house. And remember your choice is not subject to anyone's judgement, scorn or criticism nor should it require validation or vindication from another.

RE: Please read the signs....

As I stated before I do my best to get out of the way when it is safe to do so. I will NOT apologize, however, for putting the safety of my family first. If it's not feasible for me to move over I won't. If others drive unsafely to get around me they are not my problem. I will not risk my safety for an idiot. Period. And I shouldn't have to. Does road rage exist? Absolutely. I'll take the chance on that over the guarantee I will injure myself should I pull of.

RE: Campspreading

i usually look for sites at the local parks where they would work for one camper pulled in and one backed in. That way awnings are facing each other and we have our own large space. I've seen this on a number of occasions. Makes a lot of sense to do it this way. Units also serve as a sound barrier. Instead of getting all ruffled feathers and resorting to juvenile behavior, why not just politely ask the offender to keep their stuff on their side? I've had to do this a few times and each time it's been met with "oh, I'm sorry-we'll move it" with no argument. If it continues then go to cg management and ask them to stop by and "remind" them. Bad behavior by one doesn't justify bad behavior by another. While I do find some of the responses amusing and most likely harmless minding one's OWN manners should be paramount.

RE: Campspreading

You sir should respectfully mind your own business..... I could say more, but I won't except to say. I'm sure glad I don't know you. It's ma'am thank you. Mind my own business? Seriously? Don't post on a public forum if you won't want responses. Just doesn't make sense that someone who doesn't want people "in his face or space" bought an RV. Yet here you are with people in your face and your cyberspace apparently enjoying it. Passive aggressive you be.

RE: Please read the signs....

I'm one of those get over in the right lane unless your passing someone. That said I went down to West Virginia this spring to pick up a yearling Icelandic horse. With horse on board and traveling on a 2 lane windy mountain road I'm doing 40 in a 50 mph zone. After having 1 car stuck behind me for maybe 5 minutes I finally came to a small uneven pull off but feeling sorry for the car I pulled in. At first I thought the passenger was giving me a thank-you wave and then saw it was a 1 finger salute. Still kinda ticks me off. We always did our best to be as polite as possible but when we had the Endura towing a vehicle sometimes it was just impossible. We, too, were subjected to some very expressive (and not very polite!) sign language. We would just laugh it off and think the guy should lay off the caffeine. Side note on the Icelandic horse: I don't want to cause thread drift but an Icelandic horse is the most amazingly comfortable to ride. While I am not grossly overweight (a bit fluffy, yes) my legs are short in comparison to my height/weight. That makes riding uncomfortable a lot of the time. Because the Icelandic horses are not huge and exceptionally strong they offer one of the best riding experiences imaginable.

RE: Opinion on Resort Fees ?

Not a fan of these "resort" fees myself, either cgs or hotels, but if it's clear upon registration then as others have stated you can just go elsewhere. If it's tacked on after-the-fact then that is indeed fraud. My suggestion would be to just pay with a credit card then dispute it immediately. Second thing to do would be to contact the state's AG and have them investigated for fraud. I don't think anyone "likes" the extra fees that are tacked on. It is what it is with options of going elsewhere, picking a fight over it or just staying home.

RE: Campspreading

Typical inconsiderate ignorant people. Why I boondock 100% of the time. I dislike other humans near me. I don't see where the OP stated the campsite they were playing over was occupied. I could easily argue that boondockers are just as ignorant by camping in undeveloped areas where they may disturb wildlife, run amok or start a forest fire by being negligent. I have my space, you have yours, stay out of my space and my face. I respectfully suggest the opposite. Sounds like you should just stay home.

RE: Jumbled Words

Clueless, no apology necessary. A clarification of the rules is a great idea.

RE: Please read the signs....

I think this would apply anywhere. We should all be cognizant of the rules of the road regardless of where we are and what we are driving.

RE: AARRGHH! Jesse may have anaplasmosis-UPDATED

Wow, I hope you get some resolution soon! Me, too! They haven't called on the thyroid panel yet-I'm not sure how long it takes. Jesse seems fine so I'm not that concerned.

RE: Quick question about Maine

We really liked the Bar Harbor KOA, waterfront sites were excellent. One of our favorite places but I'm not too sure if it fits the bill of not close together. IMHO the view wins over the coziness.

RE: A poll: What does 2 blinks of the left signal mean to you?

I don't mind being followed as much as I do being tailgated. One technique I use to back them off is to drive crazy. Weave, speed up, slow down.. that takes care of most of them. Stooping to their level is not an answer. Driving crazy endangers not only you but others. Never signal for someone else to do anything implying that it’s safe It might make you liable. In Mass it does. Even when you stop to let another vehicle go at an intersection if you wave them through and there is an accident you can be held accountable.

RE: A poll: What does 2 blinks of the left signal mean to you?

I assumed it was #1. However, I pay attention to what the vehicle is doing whether or not it has directionals on, etc. Have seen too many incidences of one directional on and the driver goes in the opposite direction. I will sit behind a vehicle for hours if necessary before I will pass if I cannot see clearly. If the vehicle in front of me moves to the right, the driver motions for me to go by and I can get a clean shot I will go. Those that don't like my caution can learn patience.

RE: AARRGHH! Jesse may have anaplasmosis-UPDATED

Jesse does NOT have Anaplasmosis. He has some "inflamed cells" in his urine. We are now checking his thyroid to see if that is the cause. Vet indicated it could also be a bladder infection or bladder tumor. He has no bacteria in his system but he is currently on Clavamox for a skin infection. This happened about 4 years ago as well, at the same time as another skin infection. Hoping the testing shows a thyroid issue and this turns out to be the cause so we don't have to x-ray or ultrasound his bladder. They are going in for canine influenza shots in a week and the vet will do another urine check to get a status. Oh, joy, I get to chase Jesse around with a cup again! :B
