RE: september trip

WE love Huntington Beach State Park which is south of Myrtle Beach. Nice sites,some FHU most water and electric. You can walk to the beach.They have great nature programs and it's cheaper than most commercial parks.

Yep High Falls, Riverside Campground is excellent. Water and electric plus laundry facility.

RE: Driving people to boondock by calling themselves a "Resort"

We almost never stay at private campgrounds anymore. One because of price,and one because they pack you in like sardines. We normally stay at state or federal parks. We have the Senior Pass which gives you free entry to any National Park or National Historic site. It also gives you half off camping at any Federal Campground. So we try to hit Forest Service or Army Corps of Engineers (COE).The lowest we paid was $7.50 a night for water and electric. The most we paid was $19 a night for water and electric and right on the lake. State Parks are usually more but generally in the $30 to $40 range. Sometimes you may have to drive 20 miles off the interstate,but for those prices it's worth it.Plus you have more room and a better view than in a commercial campground.

RE: I 70 in Ohio to Somerset PA staying off PA turnpike

Take I 70 until you get to the turnpike. Go over the turnpike on Rt 119. Take that to 22 east. Not sure how far you're going but that will get you to Harrisburg. Then you can pick up 81-N to I-78 and that will get you to Reading and Allentown.

RE: Sad state of national parks and forests - II

I don't know about California, but we have camped in many federal campgrounds including Forest Service, Army Corps of Engineers and national parks and haven't noticed what you have. Most of the campgrounds seemed to be well run. Could they use more money,sure. But the ones we have camped at in the east,south and southwest we're all in good shape.

RE: Beating the heat...

Have you tried Canyon Point Campground? We were there in 2018 in April and we had snow while Payson had rain. Higher elevation was cooler.

RE: Old Question

I have driven that twice. Once around 11pm and once at 4am and they were still bad. If I have to go that way again, I'll find away around it even if it means driving 50 miles out of my way.

RE: Transferring fresh water when dry camping

I bought a 12volt pump from Northern Tools.It has aligator clips that clip right onto the battery.I have a 5 gallon container that I pump out of into my onboard tank. But you can pump out of anything.

RE: Interstate highway conditions

We build beautiful roads and bridges in other countries, just not our own. In our 50 States road contracts go out to the lowest bidder who has to use the cheapest asphalt, the quickest methods and the lowest paid workers to get the contract. Roads fall apart as soon as they are built. In Europe they use high-grade asphalt with rubber bits to keep the pavement from cracking and falling apart, they do not hire the cheapest bidder. Their roads look like Main Street Disneyland. Ours are terrible. Our pavement ends at the white line, pavement needs to extend wider than the road as water damage occurs because there lacks margins. Many many problems You're wrong about a number of things.If the work you are doing is federally funded, you must pay prevailing wage and benefits.The asphalt is tested for temperature when it goes in. The feds will sometimes audit your company to make sure those wages and benefits make sure they meet federal standards.Most of the work done on interstate is done by union shops and their work is pretty high quality.And they do not have to use the lowest bidder if that contractor had issues in the past.Europe's roads are better.But remember, a lot of people take the train. Their train system blows our away.And, their cars are mostly smaller and lighter. I fault the people who design our roads. They should look at how the Romans built roads,some of which are still in use.

RE: Which park

I haven't been to the other 2, but have been to Huntington Beach.It has open and shaded sites.Some are water and electric, some are full hookup. It's a short walk to the beach. They have a store and great nature programs both in the Nature Lodge and outside. We were there over Christmas and they even had a nature program Christmas Day. It's just south of Murrel's Inlet were there are some good restaurants. We enjoyed Drunken Jack's.

RE: Houston toll roads

When we were in Ft Worth area, there were toll lanes. We didn't want to take them but GPS put us on those routes. We never got a bill. Different system I guess.

RE: New Hampshire to Yellowstone

We just returned from a trip to Texas from Pa. We had reservations going down and back and glad we did. Many campgrounds were full or nearly full even during the week. If you want a little side trip, Harold Warp's Pioneer Museum in Minden, Nebraska is great.If you like history,cars,motorcycles,snow mobiles or tractors, they have it in spades. There is a campground next to the museum. When we went, they had a deal.If you stayed at the campground you got one free ticket to the museum.

RE: Trip to Texas

I hear a lot of people say they have trouble getting reservations. I had no problem getting reservations anywhere. My destination reservations were made two months ahead of time. But the one stops coming and going were made about 2 weeks before leaving. I guess if you want reservations in the summer,holiday and on weekends it's an issue. But i had no problems. Some of the campgrounds were fairly full but others had plenty of spots.

Trip to Texas

We recently came back from a 2 week trip to Texas from Pennsylvania. We went down 81 to 40 to 30 to 35 south to San Antonio. Our first stop was Warriors Path State Park in Tennessee. Not bad for a one night stop and no to far off I-40. Next stop was Natchez Trace SP. Someone on here recommended it and thank you very much as it was very nice.Full hookups with a nice lake view.We stopped there going and coming. Next night was Beard's Bluff campground on Millwood Lake. It's a Federal Campground about 20 miles off I-30 but we had a nice site with water and electric for $7.50 a night with Senior Pass. Normally $15. They say the fishing is great but the lake has lot's of gators so no swimming. Next night Fairview Lake State Park. Very nice Texas SP with water and electric.Way off the interstate. Our destination was Potters Creek Campground on Canyon Lake. This is another nice Federal Campground. We had water and electric. Half price with Sr Pass. Very nice location kind of between Austin and San Antonio. On the way back we stayed at Sherando Lake which is another Federal Campground with electric only. About 20 miles off I-81 but very nice. Only issue we had was a blowout on the trailer on I-40 east of Knowville. It seems you only get flats on the side of your vehicle which faces traffic and no one slows down or moves over. We had Good Sam Road Service.

RE: Glacier National Park starting ticketed Entry

We were recently in San Antonio and needed advance tickets to see the Alamo. You can download them to your email and show it on your phone. Real easy.

RE: Blue Ridge Parkway - Early April

Be advised that portions of the parkways are closed. We wanted to go up the parkway south of Roanoke up to Sherando Lake but it was closed. I looked at the website for the campgrounds and there was no notices of closure on the parkway there. You must go to Blue Ridge Parkway Road Closures to find where they are at.

RE: Nashville is flooded.

We drove through Nashville on our way to Texas a few days before the storms. I saw that they had flooding so we took the bypass that goes way around Nashville and had no problem.
