  1. My friend bought that one last year and got all the adapter stuff to run to a big propane tank. It's nice. I wish we had it instead of the Road Trip. It's just kind of a pain to get out and set up, whereas this you can just set on a table.
  2. Yeah, I just bought a Cricut mat because I read they are cheaper and last longer. We shall see. I also bought a couple of Craftsy classes, one on general things and one focused more on the Studio software. I have done some quilting classes on Craftsy and they are pretty helpful. Am waiting for some supplies I ordered online to get started on that.
  3. We have said that every single time someone on one of those shows says they are doing it so they can move their house. They can get an RV usually cheaper and with more space.
  4. So, I finally got a Cameo. My SIL sent me a hot tip on a good deal on Amz last week. It just came today but I haven't taken it out of the box yet. Gotta find a spot in my sewing room to put it! I have joined 4 different FB groups (2 specifically for beginners) and have looked for tutorials on YouTube. It is overwhelming.
  5. We did 7 weeks out west and back in '14. We made res for the whole way out and then just winged it on the way back. There were a few campgrounds we didn't make it to for various reasons and had to call other places on the fly. We found some great places that way. Sometimes we got the last possible spot, but we were never stranded anywhere without a place. Obvi we had to have res in the very popular places (i.e. Yellowstone) but there were campgrounds to be found.
  6. We are having flooding here in Concord, NC, today, and my parents are having it in SW Va. right now. Sorry you all are so dry! Here's my hometown in Va. River flooding
  7. Yes, I can't tell you how many times someone has cut right in front of our motorhome when we're trying to keep a safe distance. And one time we were just driving along the interstate, and there was a truck pulling a travel trailer and a small SUV stopped on the shoulder. I kid you not, they both pulled out directly in front of us. Mr. CJH had to slam on the brakes and we ended up about an inch from the SUV's back end. Our dog slammed into the front dash. Mr. CJH laid on the horn and then changed it to the loud horn and laid on that again when we passed them. The guy pulling the camper actually laughed at us.
  8. I know, we did that twice, so I lost 16! First time was Christmas Eve and my son, who was 14 or 15 at the time and tasked with the job, called the phone no. on the machine and then waited there for someone to come fix it. When we finally realized he was missing, we found him waiting there. After convincing him no one was coming that night, he came back to the camper with us. Then we tried again a few days later thinking surely it was fixed by now or they would have put a sign up. Nope.
  9. So, does this mean you will get ice? Last time I was in 500 I put in a lot of quarters over a few days and never got any ice.
  10. Well the one on the left looks like it might be Mickey Mouse. (sorry, couldn't resist)
  11. I think we overnighted at that one on our way back from ME this past summer. Off I-81 and do they call it Hershey North or something now? Do they have horses and a giant jumping pad? We got there late and a neighbor promptly came out and helped us get in the site. The site had a dead tree branch sticking out that scraped our side as we were pulling out the next day. We got an email saying something like sorry you never made it here. Uh, we were there! IIRC, the wifi setup was every 15 min you have to do a free trial. I know nothing about the chicken meal.
  12. I want to like Jamberry, but I have better success with drugstore nail stickers or whatever you want to call them.
  13. Thanks, for the link. My review is piggybacked in there too.
  14. I'm sure you are right about that. That sounds delicious. Did you use just regular diced tomatoes or Rotel?
  15. Sounds fun, but "precious treasures" made me LOL.
