This ridiculous story about seeds from China, that circulates everywhere is faux. A competent arborist could germinate these in three days to reveal what they will grow to be!
Not a mystery at all.
Please do not become one of those fake news reporters!

We don’t report fake news, Denny, so please don’t report your “fake news” about us. We respectfully suggest you read this information from the USDA to become more informed about this topic: https://www.aphis.usda.gov/publications/plant_health/faq-unsolicited-seeds.pdf Thank you. —Diane at RVtravel.com

It is possible that I met other travelers who were ALSO going to St. Ives. Now I have to do the math….

The Brain Teaser’s answer is correct!!!! Although it doesn’t state if the person “on there way to St-Ives” is male or female.. the first line of the teaser states “On my way to St. Ives…. So there was one (1) person going to St. Ives

As of this moment, when I looked at it, it was “0” — so, if anything, he has received an even number of down and up votes, since it displays the net of the two. —Diane at RVtravel.com

I met a man with seven wives.
It also does not say which way these people were going… You can always “meet” people going your way.

Chuck,
I have read a number of articles in your newsletter that were not factual. You have set this newsletter up as a source for information for RVers. When you publish an article that is written by someone who does not know what they are writing about, you will probably get some people calling them on their BS.
One case was the article about RV holding tanks. The author told us that you don’t need any chemicals in the black tank to keep odors down. They said that the natural enzymes will break down the waste and not stink. I, like most RVers who have tried this for a few months, know that this does not work. This author may have an opinion, but we are not interested in someone’s opinion when it comes to RV maintenance.
If someone challenges this author, telling them that they don’t know what they are talking about, it is not hostile, it is calling BS what it is.
You should be reading the articles that you post, and should be hiring writers that know their subject.

I have never put any chemicals in my holding tanks and have had no issues with odors.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Perhaps a poll is in order.

Currently the Pennsylvania Turnpike does not have tellers at the booths. Just keep moving and the system will take a picture of your license plate and they will send you a bill. The Turnpike is very close to being bankrupt, this is due to siphoning funds off to pay for mass transit in Philadelphia, help pay for the P.A. State police and other outside expenditures. The head of the Turnpike is a political appointed position and has been mismanaged for decades.

We’ve criss-crossed USA/Canada traveling over 100,000 miles in our Class B and have overnighted at Walmart’s quite a few times. We’ve witnessed so many people breaking the “ Unwritten Walmart Overnighting Rules”. I’ve always thought to myself observing these “Rules Breakers” that if I was the Manager/Walmart I wouldn’t allow Overnighting either. I figured it was only a matter of time before things would start changing. Unfortunately you aren’t going to change/weed out those people.

Chuck,
I’ve been reading your RV news since about 2000. I happened upon it from a friend. That was when the bookstore was your main thing. I mostly agree with your opinions but like a couple of others who posted yesterday on the political letter, I don’t think your RV Newsletter is the correct place for political news. If my comment gets me banned, it was good knowing you. Jack

I don’t get the no delivery rule , how could letting someone have a package sent there negatively impact the park?

Does that also apply to having a pizza delivered?

They don’t want to take on the legal and operational responsibility. First an employee will have to spend time dealing with this and second, when something goes wrong they get sued.

On the Brain Teaser. The right answer is NONE. It doesn’t ask about men. “kits. Kits, cats, sacks and wives. How many were going to St. Ives?” (Hope I dont get kicked for being a know it all…HAHA!)

Open comment to Chuck and all the staff at RV Travel , I applaud you for taking a stance against the less mentally endowed creatures on earth. I too am appalled at the abuse you have endured for far too long. I was staying at one of the top RV Resorts in the country a few years ago. I met a gentleman (NOT) who engaged me in a one way conversation about the lack of need of certain peoples. After he finished his abusive tirade about how much he disliked these people, I gave him my most favorite line : ” I would agree with you, but then we’d both be wrong “. It always gets the same reaction , a look of “dumbness” on their face as I turn and walk away. Turning and walking away always gives me a warm , fuzzy, feeling. I don’t have many years left to enjoy the fruits of my labor, but darn it , I’m going to enjoy life on my terms and feel good about my fellow “human beings.” Keep up the great work, you guys rock my mornings daily.

Re being kicked out of the campground – rules are rules; good or bad, dem be de rules.

The rules re deliveries apparently were for longterm campers, etc., which they interpreted as not applying to them. I would have interpreted it the same. I would not ever stay there…the park ratings indicate others feel the same way.

John147. If you read the rules that we posted, they are only for long term campers (residents), not those who stay for a few days or so. That couple did not break the rules as far as I can tell. And 3 sheriff cars to escort them away? Really?

Chuck, reading into what I read, I am sure the Sheriff was obliged to show up, but has probably shown up many times before, and sent three cars to protect the campers from the park manager.

Agreed. They have a rule which may not have applied to them but should have caused them to ask the question of ownership before “assuming” it didn’t apply to them. But I would have asked out of courtesy to the place I’m staying as well without needing a full reading or legal interpretation of the “rules”. I don’t recall ever seeing delivery rules at the many campgrounds I have stayed at, so if I needed to do such and saw an obscure rule, I would make a few inquiries before ordering a $4,000 computer. These folks are using the campground as a place of business. But they did get some free advertising for their website and playing the crying child card will also get them a few hits.
