RE: Overnight stop in CT, NY, or NJ? Suggestions needed.

GW Bridge is a tough travel. :) Mike The bridge itself usually isn't too bad, and the exit for 87/Deegan is right there when you hit the Bronx. We lived on LI for many years and most of the pain of the Cross Bronx going East is after that Deegan exit. Not saying always but most of the time. Why I didn't recommend staying on 95N up to 91N to Hartford, it's brutal. There will be some pain going over the bridge, but at the same time 287 is no bargain either.... I did the GW bridge about 25 yrs ago.. never again.. yeah I try to avoid the whole I95 to I91. The 287 beltway/Mario Cuomo bridge traffic does move as I have had much better luck. Mike

RE: Camping Courtesies

Hope I'm not an old codger yet? :B but what I find annoying is finding garbage in my site or in my fire pit. Please clean up after yourself. On the same subject we do river fishing every year, sometimes I will see garbage floating down the river, some of the stuff might be wind blown (please secure your garbage) but some of the stuff people/kids just chuck in the river... not good..

RE: NYS State parks w/ lake picnic areas

We would leave the RV at the Cg and go to the SP for picnic/lunch. Look forward to what you all have to say. TIA Hartwick Highlands Campground in Cooperstown NY has larger pull through sites and down the road is Ostego Lake/Glimmerglass State Park & Beach Hope this helps Mike

RE: On the road observations

Please share with us the gasser that gets 15mpg towing and what it was towing. 2018 Toyota Tacoma towing a 2018 Airstream Bambi Sport 16rb. At 60 mph. I like your Tacoma/Airstream combo also. I towed for 15 yrs a 20' TT with my Tacoma, probably about 1K heavier. Though I never bothered to figure my mileage I'm sure it was less than 15mpg :) Mike

RE: Member Blocking is a Blessing

Been a while since I have received a PM but in the past I had received a bunch of them. All positive comments either offering or asking advice. Also back in the day we got to meet up with a bunch of good folks at the rallies where we also communicated via PM's. Every year we still meeting up with some of those same members. :C Mike

RE: Sold my Hybrid

Thanks everyone for the replies. Forgot to mention my son got a good deal out of this as he just got himself a well maintained Tacoma for free. My new ford is packed with technology like something out of a Sci-fi movie, going to take some time to figure everything out. Mike

Sold my Hybrid

Our X20E has been faithful for us the past 11 yrs, but it was time to move to a larger Jayco 24 RBS for more touring/longer term camping. I remember other posters mentioning the pro's & con's for owning an hybrid and our experiences were not much different. This week will be our shake down trip to a local campground for our new to us 2017 Jayco 24RBS and new ford truck.. yeah! :C Mike

RE: Not a good week for Ford

Ford is about to ( or already did? ) announce a recall that would/could effect a bunch of Tow vehicles.. "Date 2022-03-25 Campaign/NHTSA# 22S17/22v193 Re Program Integrated Trailer Relay Module Loss of Trailer Brake Functionality could result in extended stopping distances, increasing the risk of a crash." about 1 week ago I was informed of the trailer brake recall when I was doing the closing on my new F-150, 1hr at the dealer yesterday and they were able to correct the software issue, all is good... so far..

RE: time to get vehicle after ordering

My Chevy Traverse is at 241K and my wife says i need to order a new one. local dealer says 6-8 months. Just curious if that is them trying to get me to take what they can find or if the build time is that long. Thanks! yup based on my experience the build time may be that long. I place an order on a F-150 crew cab with trailer tow & Heavy duty payload Pkg in early sept of 21. toward the end of last year order was converted over to a 22 model. Mid march truck finally showed up at dealer, did closing on truck last week. I also found out my truck sat at a 44 acreage distribution center in MA for almost 5 weeks before being shipped to my CT dealer, was only vehicle delivered. Mike

Hi Harry, I'm going to guess your looking for more outdoor activity type parks? In the NE corner of CT is West Thompson Lake COE. Larger W/E sites, tenting, clean bathrooms, hiking, fishing, Rail trail down the road. I would book NOW if you want to get what your looking for. Atlantic Oaks Campground out at Cape Cod has a tenting area along with large pull through sites loads of stuff to do in the area. The Lincoln/ Woodstock KOA in NH should have everything your looking for also, more of a resort type park but also loads of stuff to do in the area. All the parks mentioned are well maintained and get good reviews. If you post back on specifics on what your looking for I might have some more suggestions :C Mike

RE: Campground Fun Zones

Every year we still meet with a bunch of families at Knoebels in PA :C Now that's a big "fun park" for the kids. We are there the second weekend of every June. You said it! we always do the 2nd week of July! Mike

RE: Campground Fun Zones

Devil's Garden CG in Arches NP. First visited as a child over 50 years ago. Have camped there numerous times since. There are all sorts of rocks to climb on, hidden passages to explore, lots of sand to play in, and often deer wander around the CG. Seems like most kids we have taken there have no interest in going out to explore the park but just want to stay around the campground and play in all that nature has provided. Still being a child at heart, I also enjoy "playing" at that campground. Just getting kids out of the house is half the battle. When our kids were real young they enjoyed more of the nature side of camping but as they aged they wanted more resort type activities,this said we would do 1 or 2 days at the campground and the rest we would day trip and explore the area. all in all we always managed to keep them involved.

RE: Campground Fun Zones

Campgrounds, such as KOA's and some privately owned ones, will sometimes do their best to create a "Fun Zone" area for kids, (i.e. below ground trampoline, splash pads, etc...) What are some of the coolest "Fun Zone" areas you have seen, and where? yrs ago when our kids camped with us we stayed at a bunch of resort type places. Some that stand out in my memory were Moose Hillock NH, Bayleys ME, Cherrystone VA, Normandy Farms, MA, Eagles Peak, PA Every year we still meet with a bunch of families at Knoebels in PA :C Mike

RE: Zion in winter, the good, the bad and the ugly!

late to the thread, I'm glad your wife is on the road to recovery. Hoping for a complete recovery! You made a good point about the first aid kits as ours is long overdue to be replaced, time for me to order a replacement. Mike

RE: Bar Harbor, Me

17 yrs ago we stayed at Mt Desert Narrows Camping Resort, more of an high end resort campground with some larger sites for the MH's. I think it is now corporate owned but seems to still get good reviews, about 10 minutes from downtown Bar Harbor. Ask about the Pie Lady. Mike
