RE: Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge fall camping?

I have stayed at Up The Creek and it was awesome. In my opinion sites 16, 17 & 18 are the best. There is an entrance to the park that you can use which does not require you to go into Pigeon Forge ot Gatlinburg, so little traffic. I use to live in East Tn. and would vote for October. Schools will be in session but you will run into lots of traffic due to Fall season.

RE: Hot water heater question .....

My water heater has a switch in the breaker box, switch on the heater itself and the gas switch on a control panel. I always turn the breaker switch and outside switch on after I know the tank is full. The gas switch is turned on during showers and washing dishes for faster recovery.

RE: 38 gallon honey wagon?

We have learned for our long weekend trips we can manage without the tote. If we get FHU site then the long weekend gets longer. Since 2018 I have had to use the tote on 3 trips. One of the 3 was right right when COVID was starting up and we stayed away from the public bathrooms. We go on a longer trip every other Thanksgiving and on that trip have to dump each tank 1 time. FOr non FHU sites I always took it. We have now figured out what our usage for the long weekend trips and will no longer take it. Yeah, it is a pain dealing with it and not worth it when we didn't need it.

RE: New Blackstone Owner - Do I still need my grill?

I was in the same position I have a roadtrip grill and got a 22 inch Blackstone. I carried both last camping season and I never got the grill out one time. We always used the Blackstone. I sold the grill in the fall. Exact same here. BS easier to clean than Coleman.

RE: Route Planning Software - Android Tablet & PC

Take a look at the Tom Tom GO app for android. Use it on my 10" lenovo tablet and my phone. I use TomTom Go as well. You can plan routes on the website and enter the details about your RV. IT will plan routes based on this information. You can also tweak the route. Once done the route can be synched to your mobile device.

RE: State Parks

Peak season is the time to stay away from the tourist trap known as Myrtle Beach. If interested in getting in the ocean then Late September early October is a great time to go. Just have to pray no hurricanes show up. We went in February couple years ago and were in our bathing suits on the beach. Didn't get in the water, but was a great time to go.

RE: Tennessee/North Carolina - Cool summer weather

Helen is a cute little "German" town. It is also a tourist trap with horrible traffic.

RE: Forum coding problem?

I agree, some days it just doesn't work. The new message indicators are also inconsitent. I look at the date of the last message and not the new messages indicator icon.

RE: Residency and voters rights in South Dakota

I have been voting absentee for a few years now and would never go back to in person. I get my ballot a few weeks in a advance and take the time to research everyone on the ballot and others items that I may be voting on. It allows me the opportunity to truly be an INFORMED voter. In the past I would know who/what I was going to vote for on the major things but now I can really research down the the school board level. I can check to see when my ballot was mailed to, see when they get it back and see when it is actually counted.

RE: Roadtrip by car vs RV, a couple of thoughts...

I think eating out is far more expensive than cooking for yourself. We can cook a great meal outselves far cheaper than going to a restaraunt. When we go to a restaraunt at home or while camping it is more about taking a break from coooking than saving money.

RE: CB radios - Do you use one?

We use handhelds when caravanning. Wife and I use cell phone when backing TT into campsite, however, if there is no cell signal, we use the handhelds. Also use in campsite if some wander off exploring. Phones and apps are great until you have no cell service.

RE: Pet Peeves in RV Parks

Campsites lit up like Las Vegas all night long. This is to include the super bright LEDs on front of campers that are left on all night long. Wife made blackout curtains we can easily put up in these situations. Loud drunken parties going on well after quiet hours, Last Easter the party went on until 2:30ish AM. Wife and I didn't notice it. Our son was in a tent next to the party site. 24 hour ranger number is posted on SC Park bathrooms doors, so now we make sure we have that number available.

RE: “New” vs.”Old” Ovens

We rarely use our oven, only 3 times. We used it this past Thanksgiving for reheating food and for the first time I put a separate temperature gauge in there mostly out of curiosity. The gauge is bluetooth so I can monitor temps on my phone. The temerature on the oven dial and the actual temps in the oven were no where close. So highly recommend your own gauge if you want to use it.

I like the the type of reviews that people go to places like the beach and complain about all the sand. Lot of people gives bad reviews for stuff that a compground has zero control over. Too much sand, too hot, too cold, too many bugs blah blah blah. I think some of these things are worth mentioning as an FYI, but I wouldn't ding a campground for things far beyond their control.
pbeverly 12/04/22 04:37am RV Parks, Campgrounds and Attractions

I agree that reviews are a tricky thing. I found Google reviews the most questionable. IMO opionion if you want decent reviews for campgroiunds you need to go to a site that is dedicated to camping. I have read Google reviews that make me lean one way and then gone to a real camping related website and the lean was totally different.

RE: Where to for Thanksgiving?

Heading to Edisto Beach SP, SC and will be there from Wed - Mon. We did this two years ago and it was great. There is a local restaraunt that does a really good take-out Thanksgiving dinner that we pick up Wed and reheat on Thursday. We really didn't have high hopes for it last time but it was REALLY good. Turkey was nice and moist, not dried out. Each item is packaged separately with very specific reheating directions for each item. We do a get-together with our kids earlier in the month, even if we are in town. We started doing this to remove complications from their lives. It takes us out of the equation that day of figuring out where to go and who to invite. There is enough drama already.

RE: Theft at a State park.......

In SC the most popular thing stolen are bikes as they are very easy to steal and once stolen thief will not look suspicious riding a bike around.

RE: renting out your RV? Success stories? Issues?

If you are renting your RV to help pay for it or perhaps ease the cost pain of owning one perhaps you shouldn't have an RV in the 1st place. We bought ours to go explore and see things and not have to deal with hotels. We want to have our coffee freshly brewed right there and have breakfast without having to make ourselves presentable. Mainly, to have OUR stuff. Our beds, ours linens and so forth that only WE use. We don't want strangers using our stuff. Yeah, we still do big trips requiring hotels or AIRNBs. But we do a whole lot more long weekends with the RV than we would ever do if we were doing hotels. The build quality of RVs ain't that great. It shows wear and tear with just us using it. Imagine if strangers were using it. We take grandkids with us ONCE a year on a trip. My understanding, and I may be wrong, is that companies that do rentals buy special units that are designed specifically to be rentals and can handle the abuse a little better.
