  1. I am curious as to what people use to store spices. Do you keep them in a rack or carousel, in a cabinet or drawer? There are so many options.
  2. We joined last year before the price increase to give it a try. I thought I'd rather do something like that than a parking lot en route since I don't like expensive campgrounds for overnighting. Our first HH use will be next month. We plan to overnight at an antique car museum. They ask that you buy an admission ticket to the museum. We'll buy two at $12.50 each. I'm not sure we'll renew next year. Like others said, there are often state parks or other options.
  3. Thanks for your feedback Linda. I may wait until the last minute on those. If there's room, include them intact. If not, scan them as best I can.
  4. I confess it never occurred to me that our printer software may have had that scan and split capability already. I checked after the fact. I can't find it if it does. I would have been slightly annoyed if it had. $20 is $20.
  5. Yes, you can try it for free. However, as noted on the guarantee page, the photos will have watermarks until you register the software by paying for it. I was satisfied with the software and think it was $20 well spent. I didn't want Adobe photoshop, and I didn't notice an option with the printer software. Most of the scanning is done. I think I'm down to wedding albums and keepsake baby books. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them.
  6. I know it's an older thread, but since we're scanning photos now, I thought I'd share. We found an online software to download called Autosplitter. It's a one-time fee of $20.00 It allows you to do what Barbaraok described. You scan as many photos you can get on a flatbed scanner, leaving some space among them. The software recognizes individual photos that you can tweak, rotate, etc. before saving.
  7. While there are trailers with bunkhouses, I don't think many are going to fit your towing capacity limits. As SWharton said, I'd look at popups and consider a tent for the older kids. Our Coleman/Fleetwood Utah popup has two king beds, a dinette bed, and a gaucho couch. We've slept 6 in it. The brochure claims you could sleep 9, with 3 on the king bunk ends (a little too cozy for us).
  8. We picked up some 27 gallon stackable, heavy-duty storage totes on sale this past weekend at Costco. We saw a smaller, stackable size available at our local Office Depot. https://www.officedepot.com/a/products/792989/Greenmade-Storage-Tote-27-Gallons-30/. Apparently Office Depot is matching, or almost matching, the cost at Costco. I looked at the Ziploc with the gasket. I may still use a couple of those. SnowGypsy, are you satisfied with the durability of the Ziploc? Thanks everyone.
  9. Thanks folks. We got our rig a couple of months ago. We've got some time before we are able to full-time, but I wanted to start thinking about storage bins. Lots of good advice here. I can take my time and hopefully catch a few sales.
  10. Thanks Rocksbride. I appreciate your insight. I'll be on the lookout for stackable, rugged bins. I like the tip to group things together to help determine the size needed.
  11. We're gearing up to full-time with hopes to be part of the 2020 class. What storage bins do you use in your basement storage areas? Do you use those with weatherproofing gaskets in the lids to cut down on humidity or smells? Do you use regular bins or some mix, depending upon what is stored? Thanks.
  12. Thanks for the baking tips. The manual noted inferior baking results if you used the glass turn table in place of the metal one. It's good to know that I can use other metal pans.
  13. From another forum I learned that SC State Parks are doing a 12 days of Christmas sale, offering different specials on different days. Day 4 and Day 11 look like good deals. https://southcarolinaparks.com/deals/12-days-of-deals
  14. I look forward to this discount every year. We usually buy a dollar amount to cover a week of camping at any Virginia State Park. http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state-parks/blog/give-the-gift-of-outside-and-save-25
  15. Thanks for the tips. I think a spring trip to a Corelle/Corningware outlet store is in my future.😉
