RE: Southeast TC Gathering - FALL 2022 ???

devildog1971 - Good to hear from you! I look forward to seeing your new rig and pup. I'm encouraged by the responses here and will go ahead and find us a campground. So stay tuned ...

RE: Southeast TC Gathering - FALL 2022 ???

monkey44 - Wish I was in the Blue Ridge mountains right now! I'd be glad to meet y'all! Atchafala_man - Hi Doug & Jo Ann! I recall y'all were just one site away from ours at the 2018 event. I pulled the plug on plans for a 2020 gathering before ever putting anything on here. I'm not looking at the Nashville area as commercial campgrounds there are outrageously expensive while Corps and State campgrounds there book up way in advance. I've got somewhere else in mind but don't want to pin it down just yet. kohldad - This'll be the first one where you and I are both retired too :-)

Southeast TC Gathering - FALL 2022 ???

Anyone up for a truck camper gathering in the southeast sometime between mid-September and mid-November? I was talking with a campground in middle Tennessee about a gathering in 2020 when circumstances brought an end to those plans. If there's sufficient interest, I'll see what I can do to set something up for this fall. Note that these gatherings simply provide an opportunity for truck campers to get together with other truck campers. No training sessions, demonstrations, or vendors. Usually an icebreaker Friday evening, a group supper Saturday evening, and maybe a breakfast Sunday morning but even none of that is guaranteed ;) Mostly you're on your own to visit at the campground, explore the area, sample local delicacies, etc.

RE: Campgrounds Santa Fe New Mexico

If you don't mind being 20 miles from town check out the Corps of Engineers campgrounds on Cochiti Lake. It’s a nice campground with a beautiful view and is much cheaper than commercial campgrounds in town.

RE: Trip Report: 9 weeks of aimless wandering

We came across the Cosmosphere in Hutchinson KS back in 2011 and agree with you. It was very interesting and we plan to go back. As to the format of future trip reports, I'd be interested in more detail but what's most important is that it make it on here for us to enjoy :B Thanks for the story and photos!

RE: pocket knife

They're still popular. DH works at a summer camp and pocket knives make up a large percentage of lost-and-found items. I carry one too although not 100% of the time.

RE: Trip Report: This Time Last Year

Loved your trip report. Nothing wrong with posting an old trip. It's still interesting to see them. Yours had me wondering at the cave formations, laughing at your cat's rabbit pose, and lamenting over how Quanah Parker's Star House is decaying. In regards to the latter, his was an interesting life and his home is deserving of preservation. Thanks again!

RE: What now??

My Mom passed away after a short illness several years ago. Dad was devastated. He and Mom were married for over 50 years and did most everything together, including 20+ years of traveling the country in their 5er. Like you, he was lost without Mom by his side. Eventually, he sought for and found a like-minded widow. They share the love and life they had with their previous spouse with each other and have built a new love and life together. He's even introduced his new love to RVing. Not a day goes by that Dad doesn't miss Mom but he can now live his life with hope and joy. Your path forward and destination may be different but, taking things day by day, I pray you too will find hope and joy in the future while cherishing the love and life you and your wife shared.

RE: Side-Trip Report: Great Salt Plains SP, OK

I was through that general area recently and had thought about stopping there but their website said you had to have a vehicle pass done before you got there and I would have been a walk-in. Sure looks interesting though so might have to plan it into a later trip. Thanks for posting!

RE: New truck and TC.

Welcome back to the TC fold! Those Hosts are nice but huge. Guess if you're downsizing from a 41' FW that'll ease the shock :B I haven't looked at RAMs since I bought mine in '08 but from what I hear their capacities have significantly increased. Will be interested in reading what folks have to say here although I'm happy with my "little" Bigfoot.

RE: FOB keys and theft

Interesting discussion. I've been driving through the entire key-to-keyFOB-to-keylessFOB evolution. In most auto thefts around here the vehicle is unlocked and oftentimes the "key" has been left in the car. For me its automatic to lock my car and take the "key" with me. Have wondered about the possibility of someone intercepting and using the signal from the keylessFOB for my car. These kind of discussions are good as they get one thinking and asking questions. There's a wide range of technology out there and misconceptions mixed with good info so its good to hash it all out, hopefully cordially. In the end, it's probably worthwhile to talk to a reputable local expert on your particular vehicle. One additional story on a personalized auto theft prevention device. I owned a station wagon on which the wiring to the fuel pump, located in the rear, went bad. I never needed the rear windshield wiper so Dad rerouted that wire to the fuel pump. I thought it was neat to as this also served as an anti-theft device. All I had to do was turn off the rear wiper when I parked the car. If someone broke in, hot-wired it, and tried to drive off they wouldn't get far before it died and they were sure to then abandon the "piece of junk". Of course I forgot to turn the "rear wiper" on one time and found out exactly how far a thief would get :D
