  1. We get a campground an hour or so from a fringe mass transit location. We then take the subway/train/etc on into the city. Worked great the big eastern cities.
  2. Interestingly we also just had a major black tank failure (cracked tank) that put the motorhome in the shop for almost two weeks. We actually moved into a campground cabin during the repair. In our case our Thousand Trails membership gives us a free week in a cabin each year, so we only ended up paying for the stay over one week. In over 8 years of fulltiming this was only our second time to have to vacate. The other stay was just a couple of nights. We have also stayed in the RV over night during repairs a couple of times. The shop provided us with limited electricity and a water line. We spent the night and went sightseeing during the day. Some of this is downright unhandy, but most of it is just part of life. That is, sometimes people have to vacate their sticks and bricks houses for one reason or another just the same.
  3. Been using FB Purity for years. If I disable it for some reason I can't believe how unhandy and bloated Facebook actually is.
  4. You probably already know about these folks, but just in case - Most everyone recommends Campground Membership Outlet for both selling and purchasing used memberships. Their website is: https://www.campgroundmembershipoutlet.com/
  5. To paraphrase Groucho Marx: I refuse to stay at any campground that would have me as a member.
  6. I won't speak to fairness, but it is common practice to have to pay a higher weekly/daily rate if you extend a monthly stay.
  7. Verizon recently added some pretty attractive data plans - worth checking out: https://www.rvtravel.com/finally-verizon-expands-affordable-hotspot-plans/
  8. It has been a few years but we stayed at Lake Haven Retreat in Indy. Nice place. http://pastorscott.com/travel/2017/06/26/2017-lake-haven-retreat-indianapolis-indiana/
  9. Right now I'm reading the Lamb Among the Stars series by Chris Walley. I've read it before, but it has been several years. I think of it as the opposite of the Left Behind series. The plot is built around the concept of the Biblical millennium, an extended time of human life as God intended. Theologically there are "pre- and post- millenniumists." A "pre-" believes Jesus will come back and usher in a 1000 years of peace. A "post-" believes that following success by the Church in establishing Christianity that there will be 1000 years of peace on earth and good will toward men followed by the triumphant return of Christ. Chris Walley takes the "1000 years" as a symbolic number - and, at the time of the book it has already lasted 13,000 years! Humans are now on many planets, all still worshiping the Lord. But something is changing...their "millennium" of peace is coming to an end.... http://www.chriswalley.net/books/lamb-among-the-stars/
  10. At one time Thousand Trails gave free stays to the general public so long as they agreed to sit through a sales pitch. Ultimately, they discovered that they could set aside the same site inventory and make it available to the public at a high price and people would pay it. Even without a sales pitch, they decided that people who would pay that much for a campsite would be interested in joining. Put up some signs, have some "manager's meetings" and get the same result - new members. The burden of this approach falls on existing members, especially those with only Zone Pass memberships and others who decide late that they want to go camping. I guess the flip side of this is that the high rent stays with the campground and should be used for upgrades - but that's an entirely different discussion.
  11. Yeah, those kind of answers, along with the ever popular "it depends" responses nearly drove me crazy when we were researching the RV lifestyle. I finally learned to ask specifically, "What do YOU spend for monthly campground stays?" etc. That way I cornered people into actually answering the question (or at least I cornered them into ignoring my question so they could give one of the pat non-answers).
  12. This thread answers the original question: http://www.rvnetwork.com/index.php?showtopic=120595
