Tip of the Day
How to help ensure a pet’s safety in a campground
From readers Cheryl and Dennis DeNoi … We keep a permanent tag on our dog’s collar with our cell phone numbers. But we go one step further to ensure his safety. Whenever we stop at a campground, be it for one night or an extended period, we attach a paper tag with the name of the campground and our site number. This provides an added level of safety for him in case he wanders off or we are away from our cell phones. Fortunately, Tiki hasn’t wandered off in 10 years, but the tags give us extra peace of mind.

However, the Sunshield Vent “pillow” helps to resolve some of these comfort zone dilemma. Read more.

Random RV Thought
On a cold and rainy day, it is satisfying to camp with an RV, even though some people may think it’s best in warm, tamer weather. When the weather is foul, it’s a nice feeling to be inside, sheltered from the storm, warm and cozy, maybe with a good book or your special someone.

At least 20,000 African elephants are killed for their ivory each year, according to the World Wildlife Fund. Though China has closed its legal ivory markets and Hong Kong has plans to do so in 2021, critics argue that the black markets pose just as much of a problem.
