You do realize, it's not mandatory to read every thread.

Both threads you bring up are very much camping related just different aspects.

Both are about camping in the real sense of the word, one deals with real camping without hookups where those terms of the first post are critical, the second of course deals with real camp cooking, we enjoy both camping and glamping as we see fit. We have owned most of the classes of RVs at one time or another and always go to newest forums when I get a chance to take a break and spend a few minutes online.

Best thing is I get to read only the posts that I'm interested in, primarily technical and problem solving common RV issues, lifestyle, trip reports, and which brand truck or RV is best are rarely perused in the limited time my schedule allows. I can get those type of posts/articles by reading the new RV magazine from Good Sam, unfortunately this new version holds my attention about 10 minutes before it is in the trash.

Both threads are why I come here - for the breath (edit breadth) of information that's not available easily anywhere else, and to learn new ways for enjoying the forum! Thanks everyone, for all the smiles :-)

Yep.


Best response yet. Although I'll admit there are some things on here that frustrate me such as thread titles like "Need Help" or "Question". A little more info is definitely helpful! But easily resolved-I ignore them.


What about "Looking for best route", "Overnight", "Two nights required", or "Spaces available?"

These topic titles remind me of when I was a kid and I called my dad at work and asked to speak with "my dad".

If your definition of camping doesn’t include electrical hookups and you want to hear nature vs a generator, then topic 1 may be of interest. If you’re always plugged in or don’t mind the drone of a generator, then topic 1 won’t fit within your definition of camping.

I was just looking at "Newest" topics and saw these two, consecutively in the list:

Watt Hrs vs Amp Hrs

What are your campfire cooking essentials?

I had just finished reading and trying to understand the first topic and my head was hurting. Then I saw the next topic and my pain went away!

OH, I forgot, I'm asking for a friend.

I never go to Newest Topics. I only go to sections I have interests in and pick which threads I want to read.
