  1. Hi Chuck, Thanks so much. That sounds like a place for us. Best, Tom
  2. I hear a lot of mention about memberships like Good Sam Club, Passport America, etc. Do any of you have words of wisdom about such. My guess is that we'll tend more toward State and National Parks rather than a lot of RV resorts. Thanks, Tom
  3. Geri, Thanks so much for all of the information on campgrounds and St Vincent Island. We have that area high on our list for sure. If it turns out that we turn left from Louisiana, we'll get in touch. Best Tom
  4. Since it's been 25 or 30 years since we last camped (popup with 3 boys and a dog), I don't have much to offer, except requests for info. We are hoping to get our trailer within the next couple of weeks. I know conventional wisdom is to bring it home and get organized and educated. However, at this point, we are thinking of meandering for a little while - still may change and come home. We don't have a definite plan yet, but we are thinking of leaving Hohenwald and moving slowly down the Natchez Trace parkway, maybe all the way to Natchez. Then maybe down into Cajun country somewhere in the general area of Layfayette. We love to take in local culture, food, music and dance. We've done a lot of Texas small town honky tonk and dance hall exploring and have met up with Cajun dancers and would like to tippy toe into some of this. Who knows from there, maybe over into the hill country of Texas or maybe to some places we like out a little west of Fort Worth. And/or up into the Ozarks of Arkansas. The posts about St George Island was really tempting, but it seems we may be a little late to find a good camp spot there - pretty much booked I think. Of course we may up and come home at any point. We'll have a pup along; so will have to take that into account. Anyway, any thoughts, advice, suggestions or info would be much appreciated - as always. Tom
  5. My suggestion would be to call BuffaloBob (Robert Partee) at 1-888-526-3978 or send him a personal message on this forum. He can give you the details about pricing including options you might want. He will also send you a brochure with pricing information. Others may have the numbers you want. Tom
  6. Bugz, Thanks for the great pictures. Just curious, how is the paper towel holder attached? Thanks, Tom
  7. That's really impressive what you did with the little space above the sink. The pictures are great! Thanks, Tom
  8. Thanks for the information about the rubber stuff for rugs. Sounds like a great idea. How much of that did you use - did you just use strips or did you cover the whole cushion area? Tom
  9. I think we ordered almost every bell and whistle available except the gel batteries - we ordered two of the other type. Of course, we did not have any idea what to do about that, like most of the rest of the choices. Now we wonder ... The idea that I got was that the Optima batteries would definetly be the choice if you were going to be boondocking a lot. At this point, we doubt that will happen. In looking at campground books, it seems a lot of the national park campgrounds do not have hookups; so not sure we did the right thing. I'm sure it's still not too late; so if anyone has advice, I'll appreciate as usual. Thanks so much for the information on the Wizard. For that price, seems like the thing to do. Tom
  10. That's a really interesting tale you've told there. Without the photos to back up your story, I would have assumed you had been into the other kind of jug used over in the Ozarks. Thanks, Tom
  11. As we await our trailor, we keep coming up with questions, often from suggestions that people we've met have made about what we'll need. We know much of this will be worked out as we gain experience. Here are some things mentioned to us. Any feedback? Wheel chocks Hitch lock Jack pads (under the legs?) Small portable grill (any favorites?) Thanks again, Tom

    Man, you're the most positive, helpful cheerleader. Think I'll have you on the cell phone when I pull out of Hohenwald, ha.
  13. Thanks so much to both of you. Tom
  14. Never thought I would be worrying about satellite TV while camping, but since it's there ... Plus, I am quite an insomniac, and my wife thinks the TV helps. Anyway, at home we have DISH. I checked with them and they will provide a free receiver, and then the additional cost is $5 per month for the second receiver. This seems fair enough to me and beats moving the home receiver back and forth. I've been reading the King-dome manual online. It seems the system comes pre-programmed for DIRECT, but not DISH. To me it seems the setup to use DISH is one-time, but pretty complicated, maybe even requiring a dealer to do it. I think there's a keypad required that doesn't come with the system. Has anyone been through this procedure yet? Maybe Oliver has the keypad needed??? Thanks, Tom

    Mountainborn - thanks a lot for the reply. Maybe I'll wait and see. I'm afraid I'll be a white knuckle tower for a while. Tom
