  1. No site available for just a few hours per week. 32hrs. required for a site, believe they are taken. If someone is in the area and enjoys nature, this would be the place to volunteer a few hours per week. I volunteer six hours per week. Al
  2. Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park. If you are staying in the Valley and can spare a few hours per week, call Roy at the World Birding Center headquarters 956.584.9156. Various volunteer positions are available. Great place to volunteer with over 500 species of birds. I'm stocking 10 bird feeding stations two days per week, about two to three hours a day. Feeding stations are stocked November thru April. Three tons of bird seed and over 300 pounds of peanut butter are used each season. Nice folks to work with and the staff lets you know they appreciate your being there. Al
  3. Gary, our Verizon phone service will not allow calls to Canadian numbers. We will be visiting Leisure Valley around noon today, Sunday. Sent you a PM with our contact number. Al
  4. Contacted AT&T via chat and was given an 8-digit number. See what happens tomorrow when my Unite Explore arrives. Al Palmview, TX
  5. Shucks, just ordered a Unite Explore due in tomorrow. Guess I'll need the PUK? Al Palmview, TX

    Coroplast underbelly replacement

    I replaced the front under belly section with chloroplast on our 5th wheel. Easy to work with. After 18 months looks like the day I installed it. I purchased two sheets of it at a local sign shop. I had tried a heavier material from Lowes or Home Depot that a friend had recommended. It was just too heavy and rigid.

    Pat and I will be headed to LBL in late September. Traveling from the Richmond, VA area, probably through Nashville. Noticed the park has three campgrounds. We have a 36' fifth wheel with a height of 13' 6". Any recommendations as to which park to stay at? Not familiar with the area, any suggestions on the route in? Thanks, Al

    Where did you land?

    Roger and Toni, I see you're at the Wiiliamsburg RV and Camping. Tried to send you a PM. We're at Bethpage Campground in Urbanna. Would like to get up with you. Pat and I have a few questions about a homebase in Florida. Send me a PM. Al

    Roger, we are at Bethpage Campground Urbanna not that far from Toano. Have a couple of questions.


  11. Bethpage. Agree 100% with your post.
  12. We are workamping 45 minutes from New Kent Forestry. Upon Tom and Mare's recommendation here, Pat and I drove over yesterday morning and met with Lisa and Jeff. Super nice folks. They gave us a tour of the volunteer sites and mentioned our duties as a volunteer. Schedule permitting, we hope to volunteer there in the near future. Thanks Tom and Mare.
  13. Now open for bids. Gate Attendents Winfield Campground J. Strom Thurmond Lake COE. Position now through the end of the season. Please call Alen Atkins 678.267.0269
  14. Not sure, give Allen a call 864.333.1100
  15. Winfield Campground is open for bids for a gate attendent. If interested, I would call Allen Atkins 864.333.1100 ASAP. The gate attendant had a medical emergency at the last minute and couldn't make it. Two volunteer couples pulled in this week. We have three couples leaving along with Pat and I within thirty days. Pat and I have been here for seven months. Set a record for us. Our previous record was four months. The rangers and fellow volunteers are great folks and easy to work with. Some of the jobs we have had here are clearing forest service roads, marking GPS locations of private docks around the lake, making fish attractors and so. We are with the Forest Fish and Wildlife section. The Volunteer Village has twelve sites w/FHU's and WiFi, a club house with a full kitchen, game area, exercise equipment washers and dryers.
