RE: Advice on RV "carport"

We have our rv under a "rvport" that my husband built many years ago. One thing that my husband just added to the rvport was gutters. A BIG impovement in the area around the port. Before the gutters we had water from the port dripping on our shed (because of this my husband rebuilt the shed after adding the gutters) which was near the port. Water from the roof also added to water in the driveway-the gutters helped alleviate this.

RE: Are the campgrounds full in your area?

Southeast Pennsylvania-our "go to, close to home park, (when we just went to get away for a few days, only place we are willing to travel this COVID-filled year), has not been even close to full this season. The people at the desk tell me it is because so many places are closed.

RE: Traveling substitute teacher in retirement?

Godd002, Districts are desperate for subs. If you have background checks and you were an actual teacher, no one is going to ask (or care) where you live or what you live in.

RE: Where to RV on East Coast

JJ, I live very close to you, and our family has traveled to many campgrounds in the area. One or two thoughts-are you planning to tow a car? If not, site seeing takes a bit more planning, although you can also Uber, or use the rv as your car Also, for a first camping trip and looking at 4-5 allotted days, I would suggest sticking closer to home than New England. Just my opinion. I see that you are from Perkasie. I believe that Fretz RV rents rvs. Otter Lake is in the Poconos and is a great place to go to relax and swim. It does have a lake, but I am not sure if you can swim in the lake. However, Otter Lake also has a swimming pool, planned activities, and is a great place to ride bikes. It is not that close to any other things to see. It’s a bit out there in the woods. Not that you can’t go anywhere. Lancaster is also a fun place to go. You could stay at Old Mill Stream and head over to Dutch Wonderland (although who knows about that with COVI 19). Old Mill Stream does not have a pool or much else that kids would like, but it is very close to other activities in the area that your family might enjoy. Lake-in -Woods is also in Lancaster and more of a campground that you could go to and swim, ride bkes, etc. If I recall there is also a lake (again, not sure if you can swim in it). Maybe miniature golf (check the website)? And, it too, is a bit farther away from Lancaster activities. Ricketts Glen has a lake and great hiking, but I don’t think there are any hook-ups. Again, might not be a good idea for first time campers. Knoebels has a campground, and there is another very nice campground nearby (J and D), but again, COVID 19 might make this a wash. Hope this helps.

RE: Traveling substitute teacher in retirement?

I am a retired teacher and have spent some time substituting (COVID 19 might change that)-in my former district and a neighboring district. In Pennsylvania, a former teacher may NOT be hired directly by a school district, they have to subcontract out (this is a pension issue). This means a company hires you, and you pick up sub jobs through the subcontracting company. I filled out tons of paperwork and had to get three separate background checks. Once I did that, subbing was a breeze, but the paperwork and background checks took several weeks to do-one of my clearances involved going to a special location, getting finger printed, and waiting for a clearance. None of this was a huge issue, but this certainly means that many states might have similar procedures. On the other hand, I believe that several states do not have the stringent checks that Pennsylvania does.(PS-these checks are good for five years, and then they must be redone). I also do not think that you necessarily have to even be a teacher in most states in order to sub. Would districts hire you once you were ready to sub-even if you were from out of state and no one knew you? You bet. Districts desperately needs subs. If you can breathe in and out, they will hire you. BUT, subbing is way different from teaching. A suggestion-if you plan to try traveling and subbing-sub in your district and at least one other neighboring district far a year. See if you like it and learn the ins and outs of what you will be up against. I suggest this because subbing in your own district is great-people know you and are welcoming (at least in my district). Subbing in another district lets you know what it will be like when no one knows or cares who you are. Don't get me wrong- I have enjoyed our neighboring district too, it's just different. Best wishes on your journey.

RE: Reintroduction, shopping for a 10 to 20 y-o DP

I admre fulltimin's tenacity. And, if nothing else, reading his posts gives me additional reading during my social distancing lockdown.

RE: Sedona AZ help with RV park suggestions

We stayed at Rancho Sedona a few years ago. Very nice. Within walking distance of some parts of town.
