    Lock Fees - A Rant

    I just pulled out an example. I don't care if it's a $1 campsite or free with a $1 lock fee. Anyway it's costing me $1.

    Lock Fees - A Rant

    I don't care what they call any of the fees. I look at the total cost. It doesn't make a difference to me if it's a $40 campsite or a $30 campsite with $10 in fees. Either way it's costing me $40.

    I finally got solar

    Very true. I received a one star review for one of my books (deserved, it's not intended for a general audience) but the reason given was he never received it. It was a digital download and he was looking for a package from Amazon. Lol

    I finally got solar

    I stopped reading reviews. Basically you'll find good and bad stories about every company out there. I've used their products and been very happy with them. I don't expect them to design my system for me so I was pleased with their CS when I had a question about their product.

    Can you dump gray water into the black tank?

    I've done it several times. I'll use a 5 gallon bucket and just pour out some gray and dump it down the toilet. Simple and very controllable.

    PUP surgery - switch bunk ends so small bunk in front?!

    It doen't sound like you would be doing anything that wouldn't be reversible if it fails. Take plenty of pictures and experiment.

    Camping brings people together

    I remember someone at a Scout outing trying to roll up a tent. Problem is every window and door was zipped shut. He would get to the end and have so much air trapped he couldn't fit it in the stuff sack. When we suggested he unzip the door he replied NO! THIS IS HOW THEY DO IT IN THIS TROOP...

    Do you tow with your bag awning attached?

    I left it on and never even considered taking it off.

    Everything else so expensive

    The other issue keeping used prices up are the payoffs that a lot of sellers are looking at. Many were bought at higher than historical prices with low down payments and financed for ten years. They are upside down with negative equality and can't sell.

    Should I buy: Weize AGM 100ah Battery

    So some needy person stole my Duracell deep cycle battery off my A frame at my storage facility. They took the nuts as well but left the box. I'm thinking they are storing there as well. I'm a teacher, it's almost summer, I'm not getting upset about it. It's a chance to buy a battery. Long...

    Floor plan pros and cons (other than bunkhouse)

    We found the Jayco 21QB (212QB) to be the closest to what we missed in our pup. We actually prefer having the rear living to enjoy typically the woods behind our campsite. When we are inside sitting on the sofa or dinette watching the road isn't why we are camping. We also wanted simple. No...

    Setting up/putting up awning solo

    Good luck. I'd consider not setting up the canopy.

    Acadia NP - Schoodic Peninsula

    There are one or two campsites in Schoodic that are opening each day which generally get booked for a week to ten days. We're still working on getting in there. Ideally closer to June 20th. There is a bit of stress. @PointyCamper Which Maine campground book did you get?

    Very poor quality!

    Which one sells first? 28' quality for $35,000 Or 32' lesser quality for $35,000 Large screen TV or better guts? Fireplace or stronger brackets on tanks? How many buyers check out the axel ratings?
