Parasite control issues help

Hi fellow campers and pet owners. We were just wondering what everyone might be using for their dogs flea, hart worm, and parasite control. We have been using a product provided by our regular veterinarian called''comboguard' it is given once a month. It seems to work very well keeping flees away. The only issue is it will sometimes make her sick and vomit right after we give the dosage. She will sometimes be slightly nauseated after eating for a week or so. The vet says it is not the comboguard. A product called "trifexis" was recommended by a relative as an alternative. Has anyone tried this brand? What is your opinions and what other brands have you had a positive experience with? Thanks for your help in advance Ramp

RE: Banff in Aug. & crowds?

We were planning a trip there that same week in August as well. When would be a better time? We can go very early or late if needed to avoid the most crowded times.

RE: Hauling a heavy camper and towing

Some people just jump to the 550's skipping the 350 and 450. That solves the problem. X2 After operating F-550 trucks in my business of hauling an pulling heavy trailers for the last 21 years I have learned hands down if you are going to haul and pull heavy you absolutely need a truck to do it with. Don't sell your self short trying save a few dollars with marginal payload vehicles. Get yourself just a little more truck than you think you will need. You wont be sorry. That extra margin of safety and drive-ability will be well worth the slight increase in cost. Good Luck

RE: Anybody else have trouble packing for camping

I've read the comments that everyone posted on here, and I think everyone who stresses over this part has really "missed the boat", sort-of-say, and I feel for you all. I guess our approach to RVing, Camping, Glamping, whatever you call it, is much bigger than just getting to the campsite, chilling out, and having fun. The "thrill" of the entire experience begins the moment we decided to get a camper (actually, back then, it was a tent). Instead of being a dreaded chore, purchasing, learning, and equipping the RV was... well... really ... a lot of fun! It was exciting and the anticipation was great! Packing for the trip should be just as much "fun" and exciting and venturing off on that new hiking trail. It's part of the experience. Rather than dreading it, "embrace" it. With each item of clothing, each item of food, plan the visualize in your mind what you will do with each item. Anticipate the happy looks from others in your party when think about them putting on clean clothing, or sinking their teeth into a juicy watermellon. Packing should not be dreaded, it should be embraced, have fun doing it. Don't make it a chore. Same is true for the actual "journey" there. Hitching and driving / towing, actually are my favorite parts of the "adventure". I thoroughly enjoy driving and towing and seeing things along the route. Once at the destination, the "journey" is over. Once we arrive, there is the challenge of getting into the campsite, navigating backwards, setting up and finally stepping inside with the satisfaction, "We made it! Safely too!" Oh the dreaded job of dumping the black and grey tank. No... not dreaded... it's part of IT. Make the best of it, embrace it. It's only as bad as you make it in your mind. If you think positive about this part of the camping experience, you'll find the satisfaction doing this job too. Make it enjoyable. When waiting in line at the dump station, go say hello to the folks in the rig behind you. You'll be amazed how much people love to talk about themselves. And once home, there's always the job of maintenance on our RV's. This also should not be a "chore" or a painful job. Actually, it should give each of us a lot of pleasure. Think of it this way, we HAVE an RV to wash and maintain. Think of all the jealous people who have green-eyed envy at us. They want one, but are not willing to invest the time, effort, or money to upkeep and maintain one. Be grateful you have a good brain and can figure out how to fix and repair things yourself, or remodel, or upgrade, or change, or swap out yourself. Not everyone can do that. But we do! Then, when the job is done, we can have a certain element of satisfaction ... "I did that!" and be proud of it. This also adds to the joy and fun of the overall experience. So, that's my words of philosophy for the day. As the Good Book say, "In all things, be content." Don't stress over the packing process. Instead embrace it ... and ... if you forget something ... well ... we've all done that ... you simply learn how to compromise, use your head, and either do without or substitute a work around solution. And even that is an enjoyable experience? Flat tire? It's probably going to happen to 99.9% of us sooner or later if it hasn't happened already. Don't panic, reach in the refrigerator (first) get a cool drink, relax, say to your self, this will all be over with soon and we'll be on our way. And think yourself out of the wet paper bag. But, rather than stress over it, might as well have fun in the process. This actually happened to us this year, and rather than stressing, we laughed and joked and talked and have more fun waiting on Roadside assistance than we did at the campground the entire week. Best advice I have heard. Thanks for reminding us.
