RE: Club Memberships

Most everyone agrees that Passport America is a good deal. You only need to use the membership a couple of times for it to pay for itself. There are many restrictions, though, on specific campgrounds so you need to do a bit of research on the PPA website. http://www.passportamerica.com/ Some of our favorite campgrounds are the Army Corps of Engineers campgrounds and they are generally priced right. Of course, National Parks are great destinations for RVers. Many of them only provide dry camping, but they put you right where you want to be. If you are over 62, but sure to get an America the Beautiful pass to use for both Admission and discount camping at these parks. https://store.usgs.gov/pass/senior.html Some campgrounds offer good discounts to Escapees members but you don't really join Escapees for the discounts. This organization is the go-to place for information on fulltiming. They offer a great mailing service and are always on the front lines when it comes to RV advocacy. https://www.escapees.com/ Then, there's Thousand Trails. If the "preserves" work for you and if you use them, say 50 nights or more a year, TT is a really good deal. If you don't like them or don't use them, well, of course they're a poor investment. Still, many fulltimers say that they couldn't afford to be out there if it wasn't for TT. https://www.thousandtrails.com/ Beyond all that, many people love workcamping and volunteering for a campsite. You can get "free parking" and even make a modest salary if you are willing to trade hours worked for the savings/income.

RE: Acadia NP - rv length

Schoodic Woods campground in the "unvisited" part of Acadia has spots big enough for any camper (with space to spare). One of our favorite campgrounds ever. Our review here

RE: Hitch sliding while unloaded

If you get it good and snug you will have the additional benefit of a smoother stop when pulling the 5ver.

RE: Black Tank flush with valve closed

WTH you using your black tank for that you need to fill and dump twice then flush for 20 minutes? It's a black tank, its for storing human waste not drinking water. Its going to get full of sh_t again. I dump mine, throw 5 gallons of water down the commode for a big flush, close the valve, and done. I'm happy with what I do. I hope you are happy with your approach too.

RE: States Visited Map Rules

I heard a story about this being discussed around a group campfire. One person said "we don't count a state unless we, 'eh, enjoy some intimate time in it." After a few minutes one of the other people commented, "We need to revisit Indiana and Utah."

RE: Black Tank flush with valve closed

I hook the water hose to the tank flush and run it till the black water tank is full, then I pull the lever and dump. I leave the tank flush running for around 20 minutes. Then close the valve and let it run another couple of minutes. Shut it down, and I'm good to go another week. In our 7th year of fulltiming and doing it that way from the beginning. If you think you can't remember you are running the tank flush, then by all means don't do it that way. :)

RE: Need advice from local Texans

You have asked for comments from Texans. While there are several alternate routes I will simply comment on the one shown on the Google map posted above. You will turn off I-20 at Greenwood, LA on US 79 to Carthage. There is a loop around Carthage and while it is longer it surely will be quicker. Go around the loop to TX 315 to Mount Enterprise to pick up US 259 S. As you approach Nacogdoches watch carefully for the intersection with US 59. You will be turning R from the overpass. This is the end of US 259 which is an alternate of US 59. You will be going around Nacogdoches to the West. Watch for turn onto TX 7 toward Crockett. There is loop around Crockett follow it around to TX 21 toward Madisonville. We did find some construction on this section of TX 21 on a recent trip. There is no loop around Madisonville, you will have to drive through town. Follow highway signs. There you will pick up US 190 to Bryan. That's good all the way. I started to write it all up but after doing about half decided "a picture is worth a thousand words" and went to the map. Now he has it both ways. :)

RE: Need advice from local Texans

I drove most of that route north last spring. Good Texas highways all the way. I started to write the route up, but here it is on Google Maps: Route Enjoy the trip!
