RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

On our way across the south, we stopped in Foley, Alabama, one of our favorite spots. Last night we met up with Doug and Sandy, Walter and Garland, and Dr. Doug's furkids! Had a great visit and a great dinner! It was fun and even though it had rained all day, we got to visit for a couple hours and got some doggie fix for me! Thanks everyone! We really enjoyed ourselves. It's great to drive across country and hook up with friends. Seems like we've known each other forever. Enjoy the rest of your of winter and hopefully we'll hook up again someday! Dale

RE: Orlando area long term recommendations

There is Kissimmee South MH and RV Resort. A friend of ours lives there and works at Disney in the winter. I think it might be 55+ but not sure they'd give you a "waiver." Dale

RE: Florida Camping

We just left our Florida roost heading to Texas. Up on I-10 east of Tally near Madison we are in the Ragan's family RV resort (formerly a Jellystone). Not even half full. Lots of sites, especially for smaller rigs and then a group of pull-throughs for overnighters where we are. Passport America as well for $31.50 a night. Whoo hoo! I know it's not the keys, but you gotta take a break and sleep on the way down. Years ago, we made our way through Florida taking a day here, a day there. Some state parks, some private. Always found a spot. . . nothing long term, but we didn't want that. Dale

RE: Quartzsite and....eggs

You can pop over the line to CA they have some "Big chain" type stores there. Albertson's as I recall from when I was there (That was about a decade ago however). I always liked that Albertson's. Kind of like an oasis in the desert! Dale

RE: to the group that has got loud amp music going(Quartzsite)

Normally at those 14 day areas they have a "host." Perhaps they could persuade them to tone it down. It is a bummer and I don't know what they are thinking when they play music that loud. Do they think they are the only ones there? Dale

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I have been reading this for years. Have not been on the last 5 days because I ended up in the hospital Friday night. I walked into the ER with a blood glucose over 1000 and collapsed when they started the insulin drip. I was on the mend when a blood infection caused me to sink again. Finally have some energy and looks like I may go home tomorrow. Someone let it slip that another 12 hours and it would have been a different outcome (black bag). Oh no, ag teacher! Did you know you were diabetic? When my Mom got sick they found out she was diabetic (type 2), but her BG was "only" in the 400's. I can't imagine one as high as yours. Glad you made it to the hospital and got the help you needed. Best wishes for a complete recovery. Dale

RE: 1st RV Road Trip - Florida itinerary

We've stayed at Manatee Hammock twice and never had any problem with noise. Oh yeah, let me think. This was right after Hurricane Irma (?) went through and they had a lot of devastation and closed areas of the park. They inherited a young rooster from the storm who was blown in by the hurricane. He obviously was confused about where he was. People fed him and he became very tame. Beautiful little guy and would come running when you called him. Yes he crowed and yes heartless people complained. So the next time we went he was gone. I don't know what happened to him but the office said too many people complained about him so they had to "relocate" him whatever that meant. Poor thing. Dale

RE: new microwave

Our Sharp Convection/Micro has been living its fulltime life in our Phaeton for 15 years with only a few hiccups. The first was the turntable motor, which DH ordered online and replaced. The second was the door latch which failed. He ordered that online as well and replaced. Still going strong. Would never replace with a simple microwave. . . want and need the convection. Dale

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

We have enjoyed our time here in Florida, but we are getting ready to leave for Texas. We have emptied the motorhome of non-essential stuff so we have room to pack stuff we have in Texas that we want to bring back "home." I don't know that I like living in a house yet, but it is what it is. We bought this so we could establish ourselves in year round warmth and have a place to stay with good medical facilities nearby. Next fall when we hopefully have all our stuff here we will get serious about changing all our doctors and settle into our new life, still traveling in the summer months, but having a home base here. The weather here has been so much nicer than what we have had in Texas the last five years so we are looking forward to that. Dale

RE: Tornado Season

A couple years ago we were in a casino park in Louisiana when an EF1 tornado hit. It had to have passed very closely to us as it flipped a trailer in the next row over from us after it slammed us probably with what was a glancing blow. It was 5:15 a.m. and we were asleep. It hit so fast. I got up when we felt the blast and hurriedly got dressed but it was already gone. However, it took out the fence a short distance away and went across a vacant lot and took roofs off a house and a motel a short distance away. A man in the park was in his motorhome on his computer when it hit and he said all he felt was wind whooshing through his open window. I don't want to experience that again, but there were only tornado watches out, no warnings, but then we are used to the warning system in Indiana. There really isn't a uniform warning system for tornados nationwide. In Indiana we had watches which means conditions are ripe for development and warnings which means the danger is imminent and take cover. An EF1 stills packs winds up to 105 mph and no RV is a match for that. Plus tornados are not straight line winds, but twisty, violent spinning winds. Probably when it passed us it wasn't on the ground, but just ready to touch down. Fortunately the people in the trailer were rescued and not harmed. It was scary. Dale

RE: Tornado Season

Tornados can strike quickly and be deadly or not. We lived in Indiana most of our life and experienced more than we wanted. They are totally unpredictable. But we didn't live in fear that they might occur. . . just have a plan in the event they popped up. Many parks and towns along the usual routes will have tornado shelters. Be familiar with them. When you check in, ask where the tornado shelter is. If they don't have one, move on or at least explore and see if there is anything available in the town. In one park in Tye, Texas, it is a school bus buried in a hill, with only the back half visible. Rudimentary at best, but it would work. In Wisconsin we were told in the event of a tornado, head to the casino parking garage. I had not heard that before, but that would probably work. Just be alert and don't drive into any storm. Be ready to adjust your travel if conditions don't look good. Unlike hurricanes which we know about several days in advance, they can only announce that "conditions are favorable" for a potential outbreak. Be safe, not sorry. Dale

RE: Camp Ground Near South Bend IN

Elkhart Campground right off the interstate would work. Also the KOA in Granger would be a bit closer, but neither is far away. Both would be open then. Dale

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Richard, there are so many blood pressure meds to choose from. Let your doctor know you are reacting and ask if you can try something else. The first med they gave me for BP caused chest pains. I cut it in half and still had chest pains, so I stopped it. This was on a weekend, so I called on Monday and he changed it to something that is working fine. Dale

RE: Merry Christmas Snowbirds

We are still in Florida, pawatt. We actually bought a home in a motorhome community and will within the next year bring all our stuff currently in storage down here. We came here because our son lives here and even though we are still intending to travel, we will have a more permanent setup here. Next up is to head to Mission in a couple weeks and start pulling out stuff we want to keep that is currently there at our place. Eventually our Texas casita will go up for sale. Not sure how I feel about that yet, but no sense have two places. Take care and Happy New Year! Dale

RE: Heated Mattress Pad

We have always used a heated mattress pad on our air mattresses. Like the above poster, we used the AeroBeds till we could no longer get what we wanted and switched to Coleman then Intek. Never had an issue. We did use a foam topper on the mattress and then the pad. After I had back surgery to correct my problems, we were able to switch to a Dynasty gel mattress which we love . We recently put a heated mattress pad on it. I was unsure using one on the gel, but I researched it. As long as we didn't put it up on high, it was fine. The pad we bought had a timer, so it shuts after so many hours, which you can set. Really like it. Dale

RE: Grand Isle SP

Strictly a fishing island. Never camped there but the cg is at the far end of the island. There are commercial cg on the island also. Food is likely limited but good and if seafood fresh. Sunning and relaxing plus walking the beach can be a good way to spend a couple days. The small towns on the way to your destination are known to be speed traps. The island is dominated by fishing camps and oil companies. Go and enjoy Take heed about the speed traps. Don't even go ONE mile over the limit and I think in some places the speed limit is 16 mph. At least it used to be. But beautiful country down there. Dale

RE: RV Park Reviews

DH used to post faithfully after every stay. That was a lot because we full time and move frequently. He said the new site is harder to use, they want pictures (which is nice, but much more time intensive). And they rejected one of his posts because he didn't say anything positive about the place. It was a dump and there was nothing good to say, but that didn't matter. So he no longer posts. Dale
