RE: Fresh Water Tank Overflowing When Turning

I once talked with Winnebago about an issue on the road, without much success, but then I got a call back from a production team from their lunch table, and they offered suggestions. It was an amazing conversation. Ultimately, they asked me which day that my MH was completed. . . I said that I had no idea, and they said: It matters, they could have put that part anywhere depending on which day that it was completed. Thanks, I think?

RE: Fresh Water Tank Overflowing When Turning

I had a similar thing happening, and it also happened when parked on a steep hill. I extended the overflow vent line about 15" above the top of the tank, and then down to vent out the bottom of the MH. I used a flexible CPAP hose. It stopped the problem.

RE: Fire in Grand County CO - Estes Park threatened 10.24.20

I was living near there in 1972-73 and there were also large fires in the area. My wife and I were driving on a mountain road and came around a corner to see a large home-built wooden camper that had just slid off the truck bed and was shattered down the steep rock slope. There were 10-12 people inside that were living in a commune nearby and were going to help fight the fires. Their bodies were also scattered down the rock face, most needing medical assistance. Another car came by and we sent them to get medical help (before cell phones). We scrambled down the slope to try to give aid as best we could, but several had died. It was a truly traumatic experience. I now carry first-aid supplies in all of my vehicles not that it would have made a real difference.

RE: Back tire stuck in wet ground

I got my right rear wheels stuck in soft mud and they spun and sunk without traction. I put a carpet scrap in front of the wheels and gently accelerated. The carpet scrap rotated under the wheels and gave enough reaction to get out. I was lucky.

RE: Steamed Clams, Pacific NW - Washington

THANK YOU for sharing your recipe!!!! That is MOST generous of you! And thank you, too, for your kindness. Appreciate muchly the recommendations! Thanks I usually have a bit of melted butter to dip the clams in, and cole slaw on the side. I really do recommend an afternoon trip on the ferry to Port Townsend as a walk-on. It's a charming Victoria town. Next to the ferry landing in Keystone (Coupeville) is Fort Casey State Park with amazing concrete fortifications that are fun to explore. A similar fort is in Port Townsend, that was used in the movie: An Officer and a Gentleman" As you drive over Deception Pass Bridge, I live on the bay just East and North of the bridge. I hope that the Mt. Baker volcano will be visible to the NE. Enjoy your trip.

RE: Steamed Clams, Pacific NW - Washington

So you go when it's hard to harvest? Yes, I miss mussels, especially Coconut Green Curry Mussels, which is a somewhat difficult recipe. Would you mind posting your favorite recipe for steamers? Thanks STEAMED CLAMS 2 T Butter 2 T Olive oil 3 -- Cloves garlic, minced (I often use less) 2 -- Shallots, finely chopped (I usually use a sweet onion) 1/2 tsp. Red pepper flakes 1 cup Dry white wine 4 lbs. Manila clams 3 T Fresh chives 2 -- Lemons -- -- Grilled baguette Combine the butter and olive oil in a large shallow skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, shallots and the red pepper flakes and cook for 2-3 minutes until the garlic is fragrant but not burned. Add the wine and increase the heat to medium-high to bring the wine to a simmer. Add the clams, cover with the lid and cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until clams have opened. Discard any clams that are still closed. Add the chives and juice from 1 lemon and give the pot a quick stir. Transfer the clams and the cooking liquid to a large serving bowl and serve with pieces of toasted bread to soak up the cooking liquid. Provide extra lemons on the side.

RE: Steamed Clams, Pacific NW - Washington

WOW. I'm without words with your responses. I'm glad that you have moved on and are now far, far away! Reading comprehension is apparently not important to you. In the nearly 50 years that I have lived in the area, I do not know anyone who travels to Coupeville or areas north of there who actually uses the Clinton Ferry to get there. I've worked in Oak Harbor, Coupeville, and Port Townsend for many years. Do not take the ferry from Clinton to get to Coupeville, no one suggested it! Get it? The steamed clams are worth the trip.

RE: Steamed Clams, Pacific NW - Washington

I'm a bit baffled about how expensive ferry rides ($3.50/person, $1.75/senior for a walk-on to Port Townsend from Coupeville (Keystone). . . cheap for the experience) and crowded Deception Pass (20 miles to the North, which is another great and worthwhile experience) has anything to do with great steamed clams? Take the ferry to Port Townsend for the afternoon and visit Deception Pass State Park on your way to Coupeville. I've lived in the area for nearly 50 years and haven't been overwhelmed by yuppies yet. This is a camping forum and I assume they will be taking a camper to see the sights, then add wait time. Not every one walks on, so they walk on and end up in Clinton. They hitchhike or wait for a bus? How much time waiting for the bus Clinton to Coupeville? Coupeville to DP? DP back to Clinton? If you live there you know it takes hours to get across most of the time, especially weekends. Just from your response I suspect your one of the liberals and drive a Prious, your not a Sherman or Engle that's for sure. There are 3 separate ares, military north, central was farming & dairy now taken over by liberals, and south with the alternative living folks. I'm am so glad to be away from the entire states liberals. BTW my RV's 37ft pulled by an F350 Crew cab super duty long bed, I guess 50ft-60ft so $71.00 each way, I can buy a lot of clams for $142. Ferry fares: Vehicle, Motorcycle, and Stowage Fares Vehicle Under 14' (less than 168”) & Driver $9.70 Vehicle Under 22' (standard veh) & Driver $12.25 Vehicle U14' (less than 168") & Sr/Disability Driver $8.30 Vehicle U22' (standard veh) & Sr/Disability Driver $10.85 Motorcycle & Driver $5.45 Motorcycle & Senior/Disability Driver $4.05 Vehicle Length-Based Vehicle Under 30' Under 7'2 in. $18.15 Vehicle Under 30' Over 7'2 in. $35.75 Vehicle Under 40' $47.50 Vehicle Under 50' $59.25 Vehicle Under 60' $71.00 Vehicle Under 70' $82.75 Vehicle Under 80' $94.50 Cost per foot over 80' $1.20 a foot Why would you ever consider doing the ferry from Clinton to Whidbey Island? It's expensive and prone to overuse. The poster is coming to explore our area. The route around the North end of Whidbey Island is usually faster without waits and is more interesting. I'm sorry that your political issues have influenced your reasoning. I suspect that the moderators are about to remove your posts.

RE: Steamed Clams, Pacific NW - Washington

So you go when it's hard to harvest? Actually I live here... it is in front of my house, about 75 yards from my bulkhead. I own the tidelands. The bi-valves that we plant encourage the growth of eelgrass that encourages herring row, that encourage salmon, that encourage Orca whales.

Here's a link for today's tide chart 09/23/2020
Pangaea Ron 09/23/20 04:03pm Camp Cooks and Connoisseurs
RE: Steamed Clams, Pacific NW - Washington

Sometimes, especially in the winter, the tides are not low enough for me to wade out to my bi-valves without needing a snorkel, or if the tides are low enough (0.00 feet or lower) they are in the middle of the night, and I lose interest because it is dark and blowing horizontal rain. The tides on our bay can range up to 14 feet from high to low. I'll try to attach a tide chart in my next post. The oysters are really good for our bay, as 1 mature oyster can filter 65 gallons of water in 24 hours. My 3 neighbors and I have planted over 150,000 bi-valves in the last 5 years.

RE: Steamed Clams, Pacific NW - Washington

The absolutely best steamed clams are at the Front Street Grill in Coupeville, WA on Penn Cove, Whidbey Island, WA. Their Coconut Green Curry Mussels from Penn Cove are even better. We were there for lunch when Tom Douglas (probably the best restauranteur in the NW) brought a tour group there for lunch. I raise my own Pacific oysters (6,500), Manilla clams (12,000), Mediterranean mussels (15,000) and geoducks (35) on my beach. I go there when the tides are not favorable. Go there.

RE: Handy Hints, Gadgets, Products & Gizmos

I have a battery powered magnetic LED that I bought at Home Depot. I had visions about finally having decent light when barbecuing. What I forgot was that RV's are mostly fiberglass and aluminum. Now I have to get creative in how I hang the light since the magnet is all but useless. Best thing to use for grilling, & a whole bunch of other jobs where light is needed where you are looking, is a decent head lamp. You turn your head, the light turns too. Genius! Just don't look at someone else in the eye.

RE: Campground is filled with kids

Unfortunately, when we made reservations, the CG was nearly filled and we got site #10 against the hill and near the beach, with no hookups. Even though we live on the water, this place is also one of our favorites. It's our anniversary, and we had hoped to go the The Front Street Grill in Coupeville for mussels, but they are closed. I love the old forts. In 1970 I worked for an architect and lived in Port Townsend for the summer. We were working with the WA State Parks, and the WA State Arts Commission to help convert Ford Worden into a cultural center. We had the original linen drawings, and I loved to discover the design and construction from 1896. An ultimate government boon-doggle, but it did keep the Spanish out of Puget Sound.

Campground is filled with kids

We are currently at Fort Casey SP on Whidbey Island, WA for a few days. We decided to leave our home "Sheltering in Place" for a bit of an escape. The CG is filled with kids, with schools closed, it makes for a great escape for them also. The weather is sunny and warm, most people are outside, walking, beach-combing, and bike riding. Of course maintaining appropriate distances? I'm glad that we are self-contained.
