RE: Toyota motor homes

X2 on what BarabooBob said. Co-worker had one with constant rear axle issues.

RE: Recomendation for campground near Memphis.

I think there is a COE at Arkabukla Lake south of Memphis in Mississippi. A bit out of the way but you could take the loop around the east side of Memphis, then 61 north back to I-40. Or take 61 through "Blues Country" down to I-20. Check out the "Crossroads" at Hwy1 and Hwy 8. Ground Zero Blues Club and the Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale. Otherwise X2 on Tom Sawyers.

RE: Louisiana State Parks

Best I could tell around Oberlin was the fartherest north for substantial damage. We had a huge pine tree go down in our family cemetery there. Dequincey and Reeves looked bad.

RE: Louisiana State Parks

I can tell what I have seen...coming from Texas as soon as you cross the Sabine River into Louisiana it looks bad. Lake Charles looks terrible. Small towns north of Lake Charles appear to have had the eye pass over them with max strength eye wall winds. I haven't been to Lafayette or points east. I would assume Lafayette took a bad hit, being on the "dirty" side. But the farther east you go the better things should be. Call first. We have talked about Louisiana State Parks for a winter trip and I need to call around as well.

RE: Craighead Forest Park, Arkansas

Another great place just east of Poplar Bluff is a Corp of Engineer Park called Redman Creek. It's all cement pads, full-hookups and with your senior pass ( if you qualify for the federal pass) is $14 night. Locals tend to book it for weekends, but there are usually sites during the week. Reservation only at recreation.gov website. Could you double check that? Poplar Bluff in what state? ***Disregard. I found it. Missouri.

RE: What did you wake up to this morning?

Forecast tonight is a frigid 66. I think you better be getting ready to throw another log on the fire. It got down to 23 this morning and we're enjoy the day's high right now of 29. It feels a lot warmer than 29. Yeah it can get cool here. Usually in January a few nights freezing. I've got a Republic of Texas orange tree with maybe 4 dozen oranges that will be ripe in maybe 3-6 weeks. It's camping time here on the Texas Gulf Coast. You wouldn't want to be here in July/August.

RE: What did you wake up to this morning?

78F right now. Forecast tonight is a frigid 66. Yesterday I sat on the back porch all day with a Boston Butt in the Lyfetyme Smoker. Cut some collard greens from the garden and got them going on the stove with a chunk of leftover frozen New Years ham. Grandkids all came over and played in the back yard. I just pressure washed the back porch and need to do some touch up painting. I REALLY need to go fishing. I have a endoscopy and colonoscopy scheduled Thursday. Oh what fun. Oh the life of a retiree.

RE: Mark Twain Natl. Forest, MO

Look on this forum under Truck Campers. Posted by NRALIFR titled " I went camping with 5 girls". It's what I was referencing on the Keystone forum.

RE: I Went Camping With Five Girls!

We've got 2 tomcats that walked up this summer. Maybe 6 months old now. We think they're brothers. Decided to feed them and see if they will hang around. We always had a cat or 2 years ago. Mom claimed they kept the snakes away. I've already caught them torturing 2 small snakes. I can't imagine traveling with them in the TC the way they fight each other. A friend named them Tom and Jerry, of course.

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

I got the 2nd new front HappiJac installed yesterday. Gave it a trial run and lifted the camper up to 41". I've been leaving the door open as much as possible to air it out. It was closed up all summer and was getting a bit funky smelling. Realized this morning in all my haste to finish my back porch post painting that I left the back door of the camper open all night. At first light this morning I checked and all was OK. I was imagining what a coon would do in there overnight. Slowly getting it ready for use. Might sneak off to Big Bend or go fishing. A good washing and tank sanitizing coming soon.

RE: James Island County Park Charleston SC

What he said^^. Our 5th wheel is tall, 13' 3", and getting in the park was a challenge but we did it. Had a TT following us in and talking at check-in he couldn't believe we made it. Having been there once, I'm not going back. Trees grow. They don't seem too motivated to trim them.

RE: road trip in Feb or March

I 2nd the Louisiana idea. Maybe go as far west as Lafayette. Anything farther west will be hurricane damaged. The food and the Cajun culture are probably quite different than Virginia. We've been known to drive over just for lunch. My Louisiana people were from Northern Neck (Cople) in the 1700's so we're headed your way this spring to do a little research. Belle Isle SP I think.

RE: truck camper and towing a flat trailer advice

Can you flat tow the Toyota? so you are suggesting i stay with about a 2500 lb camper? are those hard to find? i am guessing a 8 or 9 footer max then? I have no idea how hard it would be to find. I had a 8ft Tejas TC that I hunted out of for years. Colorado and Texas. Fished Arkansas. Vacation to Yellowstone with wife and baby. Smaller is frequently better.

RE: truck camper and towing a flat trailer advice

So your truck can accept about 3800 lb on rear axle. If you put 500 lb tongue on long stinger - you will put close to 1000 lb on rear axle from trailer alone. That will not give you much capacity for big camper. If you put 1500lb tongue, you have no cargo capacity left (unless you can put it on front). Other option is to tow 4-Runner on its wheels, if you have transfer case with neutral on it. my 4runner does have a neutral for the transfer case but it is an automatic transmission,,,for some reason, growing up, i was always taught not to tow something with an auto tranny over say 25mph, unless the engine was actually running while you towed it. i wonder if that old school thought still applies to my 4runner I flat towed a CJ5 Jeep with nothing more than a $50 JC Whitney tow bar.

RE: Fifth Wheels with an onaboard Onan

2014, Is yours a Bergs system, or do it yourself? I had the Bergs dual feed system when I was dry camping at the tracks in the heat, what a great set up ! My 2 Honda's together runnngthe AC's could run forever ! I have the 2 Honda's as well with the Berg tank. Worked well last November at the Charlotte Dirt Track. All we needed to run was the refrigerator and the furnace. We're thinking about Bristol and Martinsville this spring along with Richmond since we have left over tickets for Richmond and will be there. Bristol will likely snow rather than needing A/C. We have 30 amp at Richmond. Martinsville who knows. Have you ran two 15K A/C's off the Honda's? I have NOT run the 2 15k AC's on the twin 2200's.. Just never tried to do so... As far as the race goes... We are thinking about the Dirt Bristol race but that will be a lot of talking DW into as she does not like the cold.. I know that Bristol March race has already been delayed due to snow and sleet.. last year I think?? My Richmond 2021 season is paid in full and I was looking ta the schedule... ONLY the Big Boys in April, no other race is scheduled.. ALL 3 (Big Boys, Xfinity, trucks) in September again.. We just got off the phone with Bristol and Martinsville. One ticket for me for Bristol. Wife can't handle the near vertical grandstands. Two camping spots side by side. Two tickets in turns 1/2 at Martinsville and 2 camping spots. Then our leftovers for Richmond. Yeah it might have been 2 years ago. Rain, sleet, and snow at Bristol. Dang it was cold. If you go there is a private CG on Copperhead Road that's decent. "Start Your Engine" CG. FHU. $400.
