Running your generator will provide power to the refrigerator without gas.

Last year, we pulled our toad over Monarch Pass in Colorado which was 11,312 ft. The toad was a Honda Fit so very light. We climbed with no problems, although we were very slow. That was our first time mountain driving--we were concerned when we started out but all was good. You shouldn't have any problems.

If you call the Maine Department of Tourism--207-623-0363 or email them at, they will send you out a map as well as their Camping Guide and their publication: "Maine Invites You". I called and got all of the above in a couple of weeks.

We use tje FMCA atlas as well and we also have the Walmart Atlas.

Hope you enjoy your trip. We are leaving on the 16th for Massachusetts and Maine.

We're going to be on Orr's Island Maine in August (and Acadia from 7/29 to 8/3), you could bring her up on your way to PEI and we could convince her that you didi the right thing---see you then!!!!!!! Cheers

Come on Bill--Cough it up! We agree with Barry and Sue--a 2450 would look real smart in Massachusetts!!!!!

On our 2910, we have 2 strips. One on the bottom and the other 1 continuous strip butting the bottom. The arc at the top corners have pulled away. I used double sided tape to repair thr corners. I've also used double sided tape to reseal the bottom strip. I'm wondering about removing the bottom strip
and adding a strip to the bottom of the door. This would stop the abuse to the bottom seal from foot traffic.

We use the small crockpot, as well. Walmart had them on sale the Day After Thanksgiving last year for about $5 each. We bought 2--one for the house and one for the PC. They work out well for two people and it is small enough to store easily in the PC.

I always spray my crockpot with a light coating of Pam. There is hardly any cleanup.

Haven't tried the McCormick Stew seasoning mix. We use their crockpot pulled pork seasoning mix frequently.

We always take 81 to 84 on our way up to New England. We have no intention of going around Washington or through NJ/NY. Plus, being the frugal New Englander that I am, I would rather cross the Hudson at Beacon/Fishkill. Tolls are cheaper than either the TappanZee or George Washington Bridges and it keeps us off 95 (No tolls). We also make Promised Land State Park in PA. That will be our last stop 'til we hit MA and the sister's driveway for a few weeks.

Another nice place to stay in the Wild Duck campground in Scarborough ME. It's an Adult Campground; no kids. Very quiet. We are spending a week there prior to Blackwoods.

Then off to Orr's Island for the month of August. After that NH and Vermont. Planning to be back in FL mid to end Sept.

Any questions, PM us,

There are some tunnels that you might not be able to get through. George says that he saw a C at the top of Cadillac Mountain but I don't remember that. We had a B (Airstream Interstate Sprinter) which we drove to the top.

I would check their website so see. We will be towing our Honda Fit so we will be good.

There a great book called "Photograhers Guide to Acadia National Park" which Santa gave to George in his stocking. I (Santa) got it from Amazon for 1 cent and 3.99 shipping. It was used but you would never know it.

Where else are you going??

We were told by Diamond Shield to protect it with 303 Aerospace Protectant. After washing the coach, we put it on and then before each trip.

We have reservations at Blackwoods in July. We have never stayed there--we have always stayed at private campgrounds. I figure that it is like most National Park Campgrounds meaning no electricity, water but they do have a dump. $10 a night with the Senior Pass is a bargain. Actually, we may leave Blackwoods and go to Bar Harbor Campground if there is room. Bar Harbor Campground is no reservations but it does have amenities We have been to Acadia a few times but always in the summer when the shuttle buses, sponsored by L. L Bean, are running. I believe that they haved stopped for the season when you will be there. That being said, if you want to cruise around the area, I would sugges that you might want to rent a car.

Cadillac Mountain is beautiful as the sun rises; check out Jordan Pond and the restaurant there. Bar Harbor can be very busy (at least in the summer) but it may not be so busy when you are there. Also, check out the west side--Tremont, Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, Somesville. In summer, it is the quiet side. There is a good seafood restaurant in Tremont--can't remember the name but Tremont is so small it might be the only one. All I remember that it is a yellow building.

We were wondering where you guys were---those tornadoes are scary. I would rather have a hurricane, at least you know they're coming. Stay safe.
