Wishlist of RV features

Been awhile since I did one of these threads. It's a description of those features you want to see in an RV but the manufacturing powers that be haven't thought of. Dream big. You might be surprised to see your wish in next year's model.

"Boats"

Easy and travels well for road trips. “Boats” “Boats” can be made of any crusty bakery type roll. Cubans, Kaisers, baguettes, brötchen, French steak rolls, ciabatta, even a hot dog bun will do in a pinch if we can't find any of the above. Pinch out the bread from the top and middle and then fill the “boat” with your favorite meat, seafood or cheese filling. Bake at 350?F for 25-30 minutes and you have a hot sandwich that will fill an empty belly. Some of the favorite boat fillings at our house are: • Sausage and egg • Bacon and cheese • Pimiento cheese spread and cooked shrimp • Any ground meat recipe. Picadillo is a favorite. • BBQ’d anything • Pork and beans topped with bacon bits • Shrimp salad (serve it cold not baked) • Broccoli and cheese Leftovers that need to be stretched to create extra servings can be done this way. Save the pinched out bread to make bread crumbs in your blender or processor. Mix with powdered garlic or other spices and freeze or use to top the boats.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Has a subdivision gone in next to you? I bet you could take a peek at the posted permits and tell who the owner(s) is-are. I'm sorry to hear you're getting hemmed in. Made Lowcountry Chicken Bog for the crew yesterday. Good comfort food. Posted the recipe in the Camp Cooks Connoisseur forum section.

Chicken Bog

This Low Country recipe is easy for a dutch oven at camp or for a casserole at home in the oven. I made it yesterday over our backyard pit. Yes the weather was cold out but putting a wind screen around the oven got 'er done. The crew approved the concoction. Tip: If you make your rice in large batches ahead of time like we do it will cut your prep in half. When we go on a road trip, we take large batches of cooked rice and cooked macaroni in zipper bags. Make meal prep easier and gives us more time for fun. Tip 2: You don't have to "toast" your rice. It's good but not necessary. Chicken Bog Serves 8-10 INGREDIENTS • 1 whole chicken • 8 cups water • 2 cups long-grain white rice • 2 yellow onions, 1 chopped, the other cut in half • 1 tomato, finely chopped • 1 medium carrot, finely chopped • 1 clove garlic, minced • 2 tablespoons olive oil • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste PREPARATION 1. Add water, chicken, and halved onion to a large pot and bring to a boil. 2. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes. Remove chicken from pot and set aside to cool. Reserve 4 cups of cooking liquid (chicken stock). 3. While chicken cools, heat olive oil in a Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high. Add onions, carrots, and tomato and cook until beginning to soften, stirring occasionally, about 4-5 minutes. 4. Add garlic and rice, and cook until fragrant and rice begins to toast, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes. 5. Stir in 4 cups cooking liquid/stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover and simmer until rice is cooked through, about 20 minutes. 6. While rice cooks, remove skin from chicken and chop or pick meat into pieces. 7. When rice is finished, stir in chicken pieces and parsley and season with salt and pepper. Serve and enjoy!

RE: Key West or Out West

I agree with the rest. Go Out West. In fact I would take at least two trips out west because there's that much to see and do. We did it slower and in three trips. Went to the Longmire Days in Johnson (Absaroka) County. Attended a couple of Dutch Oven Gatherings. Made the rounds of the national and state parks. We still didn't see it all and we hope to another trip. Every area has its own beauty and theme.

RE: https://www.recreation.gov/ -- Glacier NP Problems???

GNP is a popular destination. It doesn't surprise me that the website and phone lines are slammed with volume. Hope you get a chance to go. It's one of our favorite national parks.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Hoping that fox was not rabid. We both had our first vaccines. The big problem is whether or not we'll be able to get the second injection in a timely manner. Shortages are becoming an issue. Hope Czarny steers clear of that fox. Hope you all are able to avoid COVID.

RE: FLKeys suggestions

Wrong-- no age restriction. What isn't allowed are units under 24', truck campers and soft sided units.... anything else is ok as long as it's RVIA ( e.g. no schoolies) "Wrong" That's pretty rude. If you're going to call someone "Wrong", you'd better cite your sources. Quote a website and provide a link. And for the future, I recommend wording your corrections more politely. https://i.imgur.com/SlsSmSr.png Thank you for keeping this forum one of the few civilized places on the web.

RE: FLKeys suggestions

Just a heads up on Bluewater Key - they do not accept trailers under 24'. They won’t accept us snooty Truck Campers either! They're very "selective" about the age and kinds of RVs allowed there. Upscale is the operative word.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Glad to hear from you. We were wondering. Our Hogmanay and Burns' Night were better than ever. Each year there are more people as word spreads. We had a total of 68 attending this year. There were 3 pipers and 3 haggis, one piper per 'chieftain of the pudding race'. They processed in with the appropriate piping pomp. Rabbie Burns' "Address to a Haggis" was read and the haggis along with plates and plates of traditional foods were served up. Scottish country dancing worked off the calories but I'm not that fleet of foot. I'd rather stand on the side and keep my kilt unfluttered. Herself had an outstanding partner on the floor and I was glad.

RE: COVID sniffing dogs

Great idea. I like the forehead fever readers too. Whether it's COVID or not people who are running a fever have no business going to the store or to an entertainment event. Fever means infection. Stay home and get well for your own sake and the sake of others.

RE: Camp Margaritaville

Been watching that property for years and wondered why the building was vacant. Great location and I am sure it will prosper if managed properly. Yep great location. I'm just wondering how successful its theme will be in an area that prides itself on family entertainment. The other Margaritaville locations are booming. Both hotels are nearly full all the time and the restaurant at the Island in Pigeon Forge is busy most of the time. Nothing wrong with the concept hurting the "family" entertainment atmosphere. Stay at the KOA if it's not your thing. Don't get snarky Ken56. Just noting that particular area is not all that friendly to the more adult activities that involve drinking. That area is more about family activities that don't have such age limits.

RE: FLKeys suggestions

Some more tips for your trip. From Disney to Marathon you have at least a 5 ½ hour drive south one way. Round trip that’s at least 11 hours lost to driving instead of having fun. An alternate suggestion would be to seek out places to kayak and have fun with the kids on the way back home. We’ve found state parks to provide the best memories for less money. In addition to Sarasota there’s a lot of places to take the kids for kayaking, etc. that won’t take you out of the way on long drives plus will give your wallet a break from Disney’s prices too. On the way back north from Disney you can swing northwest over to Crystal River for swimming and kayaking with the manatees. Kids love that and it makes for great memories. In fact our grandkids loved doing that better than Disney and treasure their photos of swimming with manatees. Keep in mind these are a protected species so it may be pricey. We did it with our grandkids and the memories were worth every penny. Here’s more info How to Swim with Manatees https://www.visitflorida.com/en-us/things-to-do/outdoors-nature/how-to-swim-with-manatees-in-crystal-river.html https://swimmingwiththemanatees.com/ https://crystalrivermanatees.com/ Some other places to visit with good activities for kids plus your water activities are the state parks in Georgia. You can RV camp and do your favorite things. It’s a good value for the money. Crooked River SP at St. Mary’s, GA https://gastateparks.org/CrookedRiver Stephen C. Foster SP at Fargo, GA https://gastateparks.org/StephenCFoster. Our grandkids loved the swamp tours and had bragging rights with their photos of alligators. Further north you have Ft. McAllister SP just outside of Savannah. They offer historic re-enactments that kids love plus your water activities. https://gastateparks.org/FortMcAllister Here is an interactive map of Georgia State Parks https://gastateparks.org/Map. It helps us to find state parks along our routes when traveling.

RE: Camp Margaritaville

You can read more here; https://www.msn.com/en-us/travel/tripideas/margaritaville-rv-resort-coming-to-east-tennessee/ar-BB1d0HSs?ocid=uxbndlbing So we’re pretty excited about the amenity package. We’ve got a bar, grill restaurant,” said Campbell. “The RV industry has just exploded during this pandemic and then to have the Margaritaville Brand coupled with the RV Industry is a no-brainer. It’s always 5 o’clock somewhere.” So it looks like a vacay based on bars and booze?

RE: Help me plan my trip please! RI, DE and MD

Thanks for all the info y’all, keep it comin! When we're planning a trip we use Trip Advisor to look up things to do and where to eat and use Allstays Campgrounds to locate nearby cgs. For things to do and where to eat we also talk to the locals. With the children being older get them to look at Tripadvisor together with you and help in picking out things to see and do.

RE: FLKeys suggestions

Hello All, We have a spring time trip planned to Disney and are considering adding an additional week somewhere in the keys or possibly gulf coast. I have poked around via Google and found some openings but am curious to hear some campground opinions. We are a family of 5 with kids ranging from 4-13. We have kayaks and a paddle board so those type activities would be ideal, but also a pool and just general fun/relaxation type place. Would love a site on the water but even just having the park itself be on the water would be ideal. It's pretty late so I know there may be availability issues but please suggest places anyway. If we can't do it this year then we may book a year ahead for next year so all suggestions are welcome. Thanks With young children I would be careful in the Keys. Quite a bit of adult activity happening in some of the cgs if you get my drift. My suggestions would be on the Gulf Coast head over to Sarasota. TripAdvisor lists kayaking and a number of child friendly activities. Click on this link to see the list. Sarasota Acitivities on TripAdvisor Myakka River State Park has a campground and you can kayak on the river there.

RE: Suggestions for rest of Florida trip in Feb

The death of all Floridians from Covid plague has been greatly exaggerated and we are fine here :) Yep. So stay away if you don't like it. More room for us.

RE: Help me plan my trip please! RI, DE and MD

Take the kids to see Niagara Falls. Our families love to visit every few years.
