RE: Consequences of RVing’s Unprecedented Surge

I’m hoping now that people will be back to work, and the enhanced unemployment benefits will be ending shortly, and summer will be over, that things will return to some sort of old normal! But I have also noted that if hotels and rest areas were to allow for electric hookup reservations, they’d probably make out well as they’d get additional business from RVers who just need a spot to charge up and park overnight! https://rvbusiness.com/woodbury-consequences-of-rvings-unprecedented-surge/ I ran across this article in another smaller so called RV forum and posting this for your thoughts if any. I am unaffected by this and therefore not alarmed, worried or upset. Happy trails to some.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Please let Richard know we are sending him positive energy and virtual hugs! I also hope Richard will be provided with occupational health rehab services and training that includes using assistive technology (speech to text and text to speech, etc) so that he still has an avenue to stay in touch online with people, in addition to how to adjust to this new change in his daily living tasks. While this is a new challenge and hurdle, if he has a channel of communication still available to him, it can be beneficial in helping support him through this newest health challenge and allow him to keep in touch with his “online friends.” I’ll be continuing to pray for him! I received a phone call from Richard last night. He was on his way home from the hospital. He is now legally blind as his left eye was affected from another stroke. I told him that we missed him on the Old Fella forum and he said to keep it going. I will check in with him soon and let people know how he is doing. Burch

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Thanks for sharing this! What a beautiful memorial of Boots! She sounds like she was a very special dog! Old Fella's story keeps bringing to mind the 100 lb. border collie mix I grew up with. Boots was the sweetest dog in the world. She mothered everything that came by, despite having been spayed before her first heat. Kids, cats, rabbits, horses, cows -- she took care of us all. Folks could leave us outside all day, knowing that if Boots disapproved of what we were doing, she'd grab the offender by the pants leg and drag us around until we got the message. If we'd been puppy size, she'd have been shaking us to get our attention. I remember one day in particular: she herded us up on the porch and made us stay there until Dad came to see what was wrong. Big ol' rattlesnake was in the yard and Boots wasn't gonna let it get any of us. She didn't let us off the porch until Dad had killed and carried off the snake. She knew when we went to the movies, and woe be it if we didn't bring back buttered popcorn for her. She never wanted what we made at home, just the movie buttered popcorn. Boots only came inside the house twice that I recall, both during really bad storms. She tried to climb into the nearest lap and stuck her nose under that person's arm. Don't know why those two storms and not any others. She slept in a sheltered ell off the back porch. The cats learned if they slept on or around her, everybody stayed warm. Somewhere we have photos of a large dog almost buried under cats. Boots lived 16 years. That last day, she met Dad at the back door, accompanied him to the pickup, and wagged her tail as he drove off. When he returned a couple hours later, she'd lain down and slipped away. Fifty years later and I still miss Boots.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Prayers for Richard and hoping that he makes a full recovery and is able to travel again with his children and grandchildren. Hello FOOFs Richard called me this afternoon. Unfortunately I missed his call but he left me a voicemail. He has had a stroke and is in the hospital but he said he is expected to make a full recovery. He said he wanted to let me know and the forum so I am hoping it's OK to post this here. Please keep him in your prayers. I tried to call him back but got his voicemail. Burch

RE: Not a good thing, at all....

Hi, I never said I was moving there - I noted looking for a summer property to consider purchasing, similar to how Canadians do in winter in the southern states in the US! ;) Prices are crazy here in the US right now too! There’s lots of places to visit here still I guess until the market cools down! Thanks for your reply! I don’t think it’s that much of an issue since the land border has been closed for over a year!!! Sadly, that’s just my luck! Had to wait through the entire Trump presidency before we could retire and then to top it off, a global pandemic hit, everyone got into RVs and camping, and now I can’t get into Canada to find a summer property to consider purchasing - and if/when I do, prices will most likely be significantly higher than they were pre-pandemic!!! - If I didn’t have bad luck, I’d have no luck - smh ?????? Before you head this way...and yes, prices are higher, I hope you do some research on the viability of buying land in Canada with the intention of moving here. It s not as straight forward as one might think. Gary Haupt

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Hi Richard, Chin up mate! Just keep looking at the positives! Plus, in the big scheme of things, so what if it takes you a bit longer to get going or get ready than before? I’m sure trips with your family will be nice for all. I’d give anything to be able to spend more time with my parents and grandparents! Do you have a walker or similar aid? You could put a chair in the shower of the RV if it’s not a wet bath design. I know it sounds cliche, but, I took to heart a story I read years back about a Holocaust survivor that found something positive to thank god for when they were held encamped. I personally try to use this strategy, especially when I am feeling a bit down or defeated! It seems to help me and I hope it will be helpful to you too! Take care! Be safe! Hugs!!! Glad t hear so much goodnews frm everyone, I am not doing well at all. Parkinson is doing me in, many bad days especially early mornings The mornings I cant;s seem to get going, THis morning I stayed in bed untiil 11:30 Had an APPOIMTMENT TO SEE THE THEROPIST ANd JUST COIULD n0t Make it. Daughter Allison and Son in Law Jeffery bought a new motorhome to take us campimg with them. its a class C thirty foot very nice and roomy. There would not be any long trips just week end outtings with us just tagging along with them. its hard for me to get get showered and dressed each morning. Just can't seem to get my feet in the right direction and keep my balance without falling over. Parkinson is hell to deal wthh. Would not wish this in anyone.just a like a baby in many respects. Except this baby is 160 pounds and has a stubborn mind of his own. IT was good while it lasted, but it us over.I feel sorry for Sue ahe has to deal with this every day. Just remember me as I was. WE have had some sun time together. LOve all of y0ou, best of friends forever. DIxie Flyer.

RE: Adding washer and dryer to FW

Do they sell 12 volt versions? Just curious since we will most likely be building off grid and haven’t started researching what can be run in 12 volt Dc (vs using AC.) I noticed that people have mentioned 12 v refrigerators so just curious if there are also 12 v washer and dryers as well! Tia!

RE: BINOCULARS

Somehow I never saw this! My apologies! My parents came home with us for Easter after selling their winter residence. Apparently they felt it was getting to be too much upkeep and expense. It glad to know that the park you’re at has been a safe place for you to stay this year! I will definitely have to remember to check this place out if we are back down in that area! Thanks for the info! We should be a bit safer to travel by May as our immunity post vaccination should be kicked in by then! riah,thanks for the reply. No problem, glad to help a fellow camper. We are in central FL, Sumter county., Bushnell FL. This is a large rv park, over 1300 sites. Maybe 250 are occupied at this time. There are still a lot of park modes empty where the snowbirds have not showed up yet. but still a lot of empty rv sites. We do not leave the park. If we want to eat out we do pik up only. It is required in the park to wear a mask when entering any building here in the park. We only go to the mail room. We do not participate in any activates, what few there are, very few at this time. The jam sessions are outside under the pavilion. We do grocery pickup outside at the WalMart. We practice social distance when by other people here in the park. WE ARE HAVING A GREAT TIME. Come on down. Red Oaks Rv Resort. Tell them I sent you.

RE: Cant find a place to stay near Harrisburg, PA, help!

Also, somebody shared this link with me when I was inquiring if anyone new of a list of hotels and such that might offer RV plugin options: http://www.rvandtravelers.com/ - it looks like Econolodge and Rodeway Inn are in Harrisburg area and cater to truckers and maybe if nothing else opens up, you could maybe check if that might work for you temporarily. Good luck!

RE: Cant find a place to stay near Harrisburg, PA, help!

Also, sometimes the Elks and similar groups (Moose, etc) allow fellow members to camp onsite (so you might need to join) but maybe that could be another outside the box option if there are any of those in that area and maybe check if there are any fairgrounds in the area, they may also have some campsites too. Plus, some hotels and such may also have options for trucks/RVs to plug-in (ie- I have heard of some in ski towns in VT that allow RVs to plug in overnight.)

RE: Cant find a place to stay near Harrisburg, PA, help!

Also, maybe private campgrounds might be better option than a state campground if you are looking for staying put for a month or so.

RE: Cant find a place to stay near Harrisburg, PA, help!

If you can boondock, there’s Cabelas and Walmart in Hamburg that might be an option.

RE: Route 209 PA thru Delaware Water gap

Ok, ty! I guess we can call the park and clarify our scenario! NPS, Delaware Water Gap Also, check 511PA.com for road construction.

RE: Route 209 PA thru Delaware Water gap

Thanks for your post! Has that been since 2019? As the greater than 4 axle permitting went into affect at some point in 2018 from what I read. - but wasn’t clear if that included rvs and such towing trailers, etc We have pulled that route several times with a 36 ft. fifth wheel. All the signs and postings pertain to commercial vehicles. Our height was 13'2" and gross combined weight over 22K. No issues at all. It's a beautiful drive with good roads. There are several campgrounds within the recreational area, so people go there with their campers all the time. Rob

RE: Route 209 PA thru Delaware Water gap

I also saw something about permits possibly necessary if more than 4 axles which is adding to my confusion!(*Apparently permits started in 2018 - so hoping a local might know or if anybody gone that route since 2019 or later.) thanks in advance!

Route 209 PA thru Delaware Water gap

Quick question - Are RVs, Truck Campers and trailers able to legally & safely use RT 209 PA thru Delaware Water gap? - Asking because we had hoped to use that route but we got there and it said it was closed to trucks/commercial vehicles. Is that just closed to tractor trailers? Or would it also include truck campers, RVs, 5th wheels, etc? Are there height and weight restrictions on some portion of this? It didn’t say anything about propane so I’m guessing there’s no tunnels to worry about on that portion of it. Any info would be helpful as I didn’t find much recent discussion on this when I searched (mostly just about Otter lake c/g being great for those with kiddos; and a dated thread on a detour around there from I believe it was 2012.) TIA! :)
