RE: Campgrounds around Shenandoah Valley in VA?

If you want FHU/commercial type places then look at the Luray KOA. It's much nicer than the typical KOA. Stayed here at least 4 times and never disappointed. The fees are a bit pricey, but nice clean CG with great view of the mountains and a short drive to Skyline Drive. You might have difficulty getting a reservation. We were there about 10 yrs ago, before it became a KOA. sites in the 60's offered scenic views of NP Skyline. In the evening we sat in our recliners with adult drink in hand and enjoyed the views, especially picturesque with the heat lighting as a backdrop. :C Would love to return Mike

Trap Pond State Park, Delaware

We will be booking 3 nights in early OCT, plan on bringing our Kayaks & Hybrid bikes. Any recommendations on W/E sites to book or stay away from? I noticed they have a 4.6-mile Trail that circles the lake, anyone bike the trail? Any other recommendations? Thanks for your replies Mike

RE: Who's hitting the road this summer?

Most of my trips were return trips that we booked a year ago, covid canceled my April & May trips. June, July & Aug we either did some long weekend and one 9 day trip. Sept were doing a return trip to Cape Cod with the exception that I booked to late for my favorite campground to get a reservation. So now were going to take a chance on a corporate owned campground, hoping for the best as the reviews are so so. Oct were heading to Trap Pond State Park, DE and then onto Assateague State Park, MD Mike

RE: Boat Rentals

supply & demand, no traveling except for the Rvers! ;) If we were not into kayaking or biking this would be a good time to unload our toys.. I guess the same could be said about our TT Lots of liability renting a boat, wouldn't want to deal with it Mike

RE: Camping with no reservations

You have everything to gain and nothing to loose by making reservations ahead and you avoid the possible frustrations and worry about finding an RV site every day. I don't agree with that, calling to change or cancel reservations is a PITA for all concerned. Unless it is a NP, SP or other high use area we didn't find reservations to be required or desirable. We had zero problems getting spots in COE parks unless it was the weekend when the locals swarm the parks. We even made a reservation online at our last COE park sitting in front of the check in booth window. Having a reliable hotspot makes all this much easier. We went thru FL, AL, GA, TN, AR, OK, NM, CO, UT, ID, WY, MT, ND, SD, NE, KS, and MS. And camped in every one except UT. Obviously certain states are verboten and to be avoided: NM, the left coast, all of New England and the Mid Atlantic states. We cut thru the corner of NM before the governor clamped down again. X2. Reservations are for sissies!;) Good luck finding anything decent in a preferred area in New England without reservations ;) Mike

RE: What ONE feature do you really like/want in your next RV ?

A four battery capacity metal box on the tongue behind the propane bottles with a bicycle rack on box’s top. Quality bicycles aren’t carried at the back of a trailer. we bungee up our 2 hybrid bikes inside the trailer, yeah I don't like the idea of extra weight behind the trailer Mike

RE: Massachusetts in October

Atlanic Oaks is open throught oct. A lot of stuff will be closed down but easy access to mostly empty beaches. Very rear do you get snow in lower New England in oct, especially in coastline areas and if you do see it, its usually an slushy inch that disappears fast. That said it can get cold, morning frost sometimes. :) Mike

RE: Cracker Barrel

Has anyone else noticed that most of the people that don't like CB are from the north? Maybe yall just don't like SOUTHERN cooking. I know when I was trucking I hated the food up north. Cracker Barrel is SOUTHERN cooking. Northerners typically prefer blander, less seasoned food (I know, because I grew up in Michigan with that kind of fare). Accept CB for what it is. If you don't like it, don't eat there -- simple as that. You have never had my Cajun shrimp! :C ;) Mike

RE: Pay showers?

I spoke to one CG manager once about his pay showers. He said they didn't profit a bit, but it kept the kids from turning on all the showers a letting them run. yup, I've seen a few up here in the New England area. I don't blame them trying to prevent kids from leaving the showers running. Wish more would use the straight mechanical timers or the spring loaded push button ones Mike

RE: What do you shut off when leaving for a trip

For our summer camping trips most of the time I will shut off the boiler, A/C, main water valve to the house Mike

RE: Cracker Barrel

I know some people really like Cracker Barrel - but man their food is greasy... I think there are better places for breakfast. LOL At the end of the day traditional breakfast is supposed to be greasy. Make no mistake about it Bacon, eggs, sausage, grits, pan cakes and biscuits are greasy foods! Glad were not the only one's, LOL last time we ate there we went with a group so we went just to be polite. We both got the home made Dumplings... yeah greasy,soggy didn't even look like dumplings.

RE: Cracker Barrel

We don't do the overnight stopovers with our type of Rving. That said we have stopped & dinned a few times, our meals were awful, just saying. Mike

RE: Water hose threads...

Objective here is humor. I’ve read a lot of threads here- lots of blow-hards...You MUST use white RV hose- green ones are ‘poisonous’. But as a kid, I drank from them. Anyway- camping right now, with fancy new white hoses, and the water is ‘big time hose flavored” (eye roll). Maybe we should use the right ones, but then again, maybe it’s mostly bologna. Anyway, we’re filling a water jug for drinking directly from the faucet, just because it tastes better. LOL also drank from those green hoses when I was a kid, didn't where a bike helmet either. (I don't think they had them in those days) learned to drive in a 1967 3 on a tree pickup truck with gas tank directly behind bench seat while my father smoked. Not sure how I am alive today!! :B :B Mike

RE: where 2 get water for RV before you reach your destination?

Generally will fill at the campground. I do check online or call, only been a problem once. That happened to be last year at a provincial park in Ontario where they decided to close the fill station for repairs unexpectedly... ended up driving 7 miles out of the way down a poorly maintained dirt road for water.

RE: Watched some MLB last night...

yeah I've been deprived of MLB to long, glad season is underway. They are broadcasting fan noise over the PA at the stadiums, guess to keep some continuity in the game. New rules for this year: top of 10th inning, player starts on 2nd before anyone bats. DH rule for NL. I wouldn't be surprised if they keep the same rules going forward next season. Remember the days of Carl Yastrzemski, Jim Rice, Fred Lynn and Dwight Evans Mike

RE: Another Mile, Another Day

I find myself trying to keep my planned trips under 300 mile, staying mostly on the east coast and living directly between Boston & NYC everything is multi lane busy interstate if you want to get anywhere. Age has a lot to do with this, when I was younger, I could handle the 8+ hr trips. Now I find myself tiring sooner, combine that with constant heavy traffic I find myself shorting up my trips Mike

RE: Are campgrounds more crowded or is it just me?

Just returned from our yearly trip at Knoebels Amusement Resort in Elysburg, PA. Campground is usually packed with Vacationing families. This year about 40% full. Amusement Park had re-opened on July 1 Mike

RE: Texas trip cancelled!

Sweltering here in the North east, Just can't imagine the heat in Texas. For July, I'd take 70 or 80 degrees anyday. Enjoy your trip and safe travels Mike
