RE: Looking for RV parks near Boston MA

2. I was told that I may not want to bring our F250 tow vehicle anywhere near Boston for visiting because of narrow streets and limited parking. Should we call an Uber or what? I'll have to disagree with Paul above a bit on this. It IS a big deal to take a large vehicle into the city. There is limited parking for larger vehicles and negotiating the small streets can be very difficult especially if you are unfamiliar with the area. And we Yanks are not patient with those that are "from away" and add to an already bad traffic situation. Save yourself some stress and take the T or commuter rail into the city. It is indeed a very walkable city plus you do have the option of taxis or Uber if you wish.

I am heartbroken

My godfather passed away yesterday. I found out via Facebook but understand the stress the family is under. I am so heartbroken.

RE: Newfoundland Eateries with good food

we'll have to do the NS to NL ferry. Not looking forward to it. why not looking forward to it? Not sure of MDKMDK's reason but sometimes the crossing can be rough. They also cancel crossings last minute due to weather. That happened to us last time we tried to go. Was quite a while ago though. However, the experience itself can be very pleasant.

RE: Prescriptions while on the road?

I never travel for more than 2 weeks at a time but ran into an issue where my script ran out while I was away. Insurance rules wouldn't allow them to refill more than a few days before my current supply ran out. CVS is our main pharmacy so we had it filled at the nearest one. Our insurance is CVS Caremark and they encourage 90 day refills as it's actually less costly overall to do so. Less paperwork, less bottles to fill, etc.

RE: Yellowstone - west or northwest enterance?

I'm sure there are those that seek steep grades just for the fun of it, however, I'm not one of them. As per my OP I'm just looking for a choice between the two entrances I mentioned. My truck, pulling my fifth wheel, generates a lot of heat in the transmission on extended uphill grades. Also, I do not have an exhaust break so coming down a steep grade can be a challenge. That info should help others guide you. As I mentioned, I've gone in both ways (in a car) but I've never been driving so I haven't paid much attention. If I was the driver I'd be looking for the flattest route as well. I don't do well with heights and if I get the sudden sensation of height I have a tendency to pass out. Not good when you are behind the wheel! In any event no matter what route you take enjoy the park.

RE: Substancial deposit required

Deposit requirements at private RV parks are higher in the East (typically 1/2 or full down) than in the West (typically a 1 night or no deposit). I haven't camped out west but your observation is probably accurate. Camping season can be very short so the campgrounds cannot afford lost revenue due to no shows. I think there's a different mindset up here as well-we aren't as laid back or as trustful as other areas.

RE: Must see in Maine?

I guess part of the let down, was that it was pretty much the same scenery we had just spent all the time in the Atlantic provinces seeing. There truly isn't much difference. Your comment reminds me of the first time we took my son into Canada (New Brunswick). In his head he must have had a picture of something exotic. His observation? "It looks just like Maine!"

RE: Substancial deposit required

Have run into multiple types of deposit situations. If I don't like it I just go elsewhere.

RE: SoCal to East Coast Fall Colors

Best months are September and October. The earlier in the year the farther north you will have to go. On average the colors start about mid-September in the north country and gradually work their way down for the next 6-8 weeks. There are so many variables it's impossible to know timing more than a few weeks out. I will say you should make reservations as soon as you know your schedule. Leaf peepers take up a lot of space. Kids are back in school by Labor Day but weekends get crazy. It's also fair season up here that time of year. There are too many to list so I'd get on the tourism websites of the states you want to visit. That also adds to the craziness as fairs like the one at Eastern States Expo in Springfield, MA, can take more than one day to fully appreciate. The list of "must sees" can also be endless so if you give more specifics about what you like to do, whether or not there will be kids with you, etc., that would help. Not only is the foliage beautiful in New England but the Great Smoky Mountains and other more southern areas can be spectacular.

RE: Yellowstone - west or northwest enterance?

Would like to avoid steep grades. Any particular reason why? That might help get some more relevant answers. I’d enter, or leave, the park from a direction you haven’t taken previously. I don’t seek the easy way but rather the interesting way. That would be us, too, unless there's a concrete reason why you can't. I've entered twice from the west and once from the east. It's a different experience each way and each time.

RE: Must see in Maine?

bar harbor after the 'season' is worth a trip. We like Bar Harbor any season. Logistically the summer can be challenging but if you stay at any of the campgrounds along Rt. 3 you can take the shuttle into town so you don't have to deal with parking. Eat at non-peak times if you eat out or make a reservation. IMHO the crowds are just part of the vibe that makes it so much fun. The down side is Acadia gets VERY crowded and that can make for a miserable experience. Mid-week is better than weekends and if you can travel in the off-season it is better but some things do shut down. The season up there is getting longer, though-many places are starting to stay open through October. Maybe because we had spent so much time in Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick, that Maine just seemed kind of a let down. The Bay of Fundy is a phenomenal place. I highly recommend it to anyone. I've never felt "let down" returning to Maine possibly because it's been a "go to" place for us for years for weekends, vacations and day trips. A lot of "let down" is based on expectations that aren't met. We go and know exactly what to expect and often are met with unexpected surprises. I love Nova Scotia and PEI but find both of them can be a little bit boring. The scenery is beautiful but after a while it's just scenery.

RE: What a day

followed by 3 months of restricted movement Good luck with the movement restriction of a 6 mo old pup, let alone a border collie! Good luck with the lambs. I'm looking at a bill of about $1800 but it is what it is.

RE: What a day

“Bad” days are relative. I agree. That's why I said most of what I was dealing with was just "noise". Now I'm waiting to hear from the vet as to how Jake's bladder stone surgery went. Love him to pieces like I have all my dogs but it could be something much more serious on a human. Wishing your BIL well.
