I should have written more>you don't need to spray the skunks themselves. (they might spray back!) Using the common kitchen items mixed up, you spray the things you want them to stay away from, such as around the rubbish bins, or creating a sprayed perimeter around your fire. You could even spray under your chairs!

Hi Lou and others!

We went to Salt Fork SP last Memorial Day Weekend, and I'm thinking our son-in-law told us that there had been some skunks seen down the row from us, but it could have been racoons, I really can't remember. I don't know how you were able to sit still with that skunk so close and then licking your ankle! Wow, you must have nerves of steel.

We are planning our first outing in about a week or so. A nice fellow from the State (at the Anniversary Rally last Fall) gave us a list of four SP's he thought would fill our list of desires, after we told him what we were looking for: peaceful; trees; room between sites, etc. We're thinking we might go during the week (Frank took vacation) so we can enjoy it without a full park. We haven't decided which one to try, but the four he listed were: Mohican; Tar Hollow; Burr Oak; and Shawnee. Do you have thoughts on any of these?

Deb

Loren, that sounds great, and anyone else who'd like to go too.

We thought we'd wait to see how the weather is before deciding when/where to go, but Mohican is one I've been thinking seriously about. We camped with some other friends (SOB owners) year before last at a Muskingum Watershed campground near there and went into Loudonville for a great dinner at a family bar there. We also ate breakfast at a local fire department's pancake breakfast and enjoyed being given a tour of the department, including the trucks -- that was so cool! I forget what month it was, but I think they might have said each month in the summer they do something different to raise money, ie -- sometimes it's a dinner instead of breakfast.

If you're going to Mohican, better get reserving now. We were looking for a weekend with full hookups to help some friends who just bought a camper to get acclimated and we had to take early May! More availability might be had with electric only sites, though.

How about the rest of the Ohioans? Anyone camping yet??
Dillion is a nice park. The boss says its to close to home. We are going to travel around Ohio and test several out. If ever you rally in zanesville get ahold of me and maybe we can set up a tour of Historic Putnam

Hi Deb, Glad to hear that you are getting ready to go camping. We have been out for our first shake down campout. We went to the Wooster TAC Ohio Rally, the first weekend of April. Amish country tours and lots of fun with about 15 other Airstreams. We don't have anything planned for a next trip yet. It looks like others are posting on here. Hope to join in when we can.

Anyone interested...

Hello friends, just wanted to inform anyone interested of our 1st trip of this year. We will be at Buck Creek SP(May 16-19) so we can attend the Springfield Antique Extravaganza that weekend.There are also a few interesting sites in Springfield, a civil war museum, art museum, 2 historical homes to tour, The Pennsylvania House and The Westcott House( a Frank Lloyd Wright House), a rock garden and the Little miami Scenic trail to ride your bike .We will be at site # 88. Stop by, we would love to meet up with some other Airstream or Vintage trailer owners...

Happy Trails.....
Chery and Rod

Hi Lou!

We were looking forward to going to the Wooster Rally, but DH had to work; I guess there's always next year.

I think I read on another thread that you and Larry went off-grid camping out West this past Winter? That is something we are looking forward to doing when he retires. I'm interested in learning how you determined where to go.............could we discuss this when camping sometime this year? I know I've read here on the Forums of some locations, but wondering if you all know of an app or some other listing of possible places to boondock.

Work has been so intense this past couple of years, that we decided we really needed to just get away whenever possible. Unfortunately that may be only a couple of days here and there.

Just wondering, are you all planning to go to PennWood again this Fall? Trying to plan ahead for vacation time.

ceebeth, thanks for the information regarding your upcoming camping outing. I'm curious about some SP's in Ohio which we haven't been to, and Buck Creek is one of them -- have you been there before? If so, what's your opinion? We like wide sites (not packed in), electric, dump station, available water is nice, but not absolutely necessary, trees, view of a lake or pond would be nice.

Thanks.

Deb

Hi Deb, We have not stayed at Buck Creek yet, we did drive thru before or last trip to the Antique mall up by there just to check it out . The lake was beautiful, the spots to park were of average size, but most all the trees(if the spots had any ) were small so shade may be a problem.It has electric and a small dump station, shower house playground etc. It looked to me as if it hasnt been there that long. There were some nice sites right by the lake but were already taken on the dates we needed.I will try and post an update after the trip to give you a better report..I was excited to see there were several other sites in the town to visit. Hope I find time to relax!!!LOL!!! Thanks
Chery

Hi Chery.

Thanks, and I'd greatly appreciate reading your thoughts after you have camped there too.

We go to Springfield to their old car swap meet sometimes, but we don't go anywhere else while there, so I can't offer any suggestions to you.

Thanks again.

Deb

It's not in Ohio but not too terribly far....We'll be heading to Lake Barkley in Cadiz, KY and camping at Prizer Point Campground & Marina May 4-10. They have sites right on the lake, anything from primitive to full hook-ups, and we are looking forward to getting away for a bit. All are welcome!
