It is suppose to no longer read "Team Bob". The update does not appear. That is the problem.

I have clicked on Submit changes with no results. And no I do not remember a previous incident, not that it didn't happen, I just don't recall.

RE: Campground recommendations for the FL panhandle

Gulfcoast, care to share the name of this $15 a night campsite? Eager to try it.

Are campgrounds more crowded or is it just me?

We just upgraded our RV to a new Phoenix Cruiser 2351D and picked it up in Elkhart, IN after their lock down of a month and a half. On our way home, which we wanted to take our time getting back home to check everything out. Any way, most all the state parks enroute were packed. Lucky to even get in. Planning an early July trip and have to make reservation most of the way, which is very unlike us. Parks we wanted to stay over were booked and had to replan. We'd find a park of 43 sites and 9 openings and a day or so later only one or two were open. We're not use to making reservations, as we are never really sure when we'll be where. I mean if we really like a place we'll stay a couple of extra days or leave eralier than planned. Besides I hate "ordering" a site based on a couple inch square picture. Looked at Google Earth, but that won't show the incline of the site, how far the power pole is, or if it still has shade or not, etc. We are state park, COE & municipal/county park campers. Commercial/private parks just don't cut it for us. Even FamCamp will fork for a nigh. So any way, is it me being locked down for so long that every thing seems more crowded or are there more people out and about?

RE: Buying a Motorhome not a mechanic

I think you should first figure out how you are going to use it. I mean going out for a weekend or 3 or 4 days or going on a 4 week road trip. Driving to a place and plopping down or moving about every 3 or 4 days. These are all considerations as to how comfortable the coach for that activity. Sitting for a couple of hours or for days. And the same for sleeping. Making up the beds every night or time you move or having it ready. That's where I'd start. Then get a floor plan and go from there.

Deer Creek State Park, Ohio

Thinking about spending a night or two at Deer Creek State Park, Ohio on our way to Pennsylvania. Can't seem to find any photos of the sites any where. Any one familiar with this place? Are the sites level, shaded, real close together or spaced? Their web site doesn't seem to be over loaded with the information I want. Appreciated any & all help.

RE: Ok boomers, what's in your playlist?

No one mentioned Stevie Ray Vaughn. Shame, shame. For good piano look at David Krull or Professor Longhair. Pinetop Perkins isn't bad either.

Southwest Pennsylvania

Looking to spend a week or so in southwest Pennsylvania, staying at, preferably COE parks. State parks are also ok. Want trees, level, 30amp spacious sites. Can move around a bit and want to see more of the area, including water falls, sights of interest, etc. Our grand plan is from there go into WV, VA, then into KY and work our way back to ST. Louis, MO, again predominately hitting COE parks with State parks as back ups. Hopefully be in the area the first of July and taking two weeks from there to get back home. Any and all help appreciated.

Prophetstown SP or Patoka Lake Campground

Leaving Elkhart and heading to St. Louis and want a couple of nights on the way. Read reviews & such, but am looking for more opinions. Should we spend a couple of days at Prophetstown SP or Patoka Lake Campground. It will be our shake down trip so basically sit around the campsite and play with knobs & things to see what does what, so to speak. Need to find a place in Indiana as IL & Kty are not open till June 1 and we must be home by then. (Of course!) Oh yeah Turkey Run is booked solid for those days. Thanks!

RE: Recovering from rotator cuff surgery...what to expect?

My advice is that if you go out in public, during this virus and all, if you need it or not wear your sling. I used to call mine my wet paint sign. I had mobility, but the arm was still sore & didn't want any one slapping me on the back or shoulder. "Wet Paint" works.

RE: Keys to reopen June 1

I just recently read an interesting article about adjusting numbers. i.e. John has the virus and is tested, count 1. John enters the hospital and is tested, count 2. Daily John gets tested to check his progress, count 1 per day = ? John's final test shows negative, count on that 0. But John accounts for a minimum of 3 to 10 positives. Makes sense to me. And besides it was on the web, and you know that's true.

RE: Well, I have learned one thing during this pandemic...

And speaking of masks, my wife is sewing masks for our local elks lodge to help raise money for our various charity fund raisers. I know I'm not suppose to post spam or solicitations, and I'm not trying to sell anything, just thought it is worth noting. As I tell people, my wife & I work to accomplish this. Shes a seamstress and I'm an alcoholic.

RE: Where do you store your Shoes, Boots, Sandals and Slippers

One pair is with my clothes and the other pair is on my feet. But I'm a male. Others may have different requirements (as my DW).

RE: Leveling Blocks vs jack pads

Thanks for your advice. If I have to do it again I will keep that in mind. But knowing me & my luck I generally try to prepare for the worse case scenario. Warm weather or not.

RE: Leveling Blocks vs jack pads

Nice job but to make a constructive comment the 3/4" holes in the plywood should have been in the 2x10 and then the holes would not be visible! Problem with that is if the braided twine were to need replacement you couldn't do it with the plywood being glued down. And to drill through the plywood in the same exact spot(s) would be impossible. Besides then you'd have what I have now.

RE: Leveling Blocks vs jack pads

Well finally got them done. Since I'm still in lock down wasn't in any hurry. It was what I call a rummage project. I rummaged through my assortment of junk and found a little of this and a little of that. Found some nice nylon cord, but it wasn't thick enough to suite me, so I braided 3 strands together for my pulls/handles. Cut the boards 10" along with scrap plywood, glued & screwed, as suggested. Drilled a 1/4' hole into a 9/16 hole. slide the twine into the 1/4" hole & up through the top. Tied a knot in the twine and pulled back into the larger hole. Did this on both sided then filled the holes with Gorilla glue. This should do the trick.

RE: What's where we are going?

Here's a fun site if you're bored during lockdown and want to do some research. Select the state of your interest, then in the red bar at the top select "Features". This will display a list of features from airports to post offices to harbors and many more. Not all are of interest, but for example under Bridges it will also list covered bridges (DW's favorite).

As per Fox 2 news today: Campgrounds at Missouri State Parks reopen Monday, May 18 with some new guidelines in place to accommodate social distancing. One significant change is that you must reserve a spot before you arrive. There is also a new contactless, cashless, self-check-in feature. First-come, first-served camping will no longer be available at most state park campgrounds. Reservations will be required before arrival. New reservations can be made starting Monday for dates beginning Tuesday, May 26. Missouri State Park beaches will open to the public on Thursday, May 21, with visitors expected to practice social distancing.
