We love those rails to trails...they are a great way to get some exercise and have some fun exploring.

The rail trails are one of our favorite things. We actually hunt for them wherever we go. Most are built on old rail right of ways or rail beds so the grades are never steep. Here is a site to help you find them. Just put in the state you are in.
It is a service of the Rails to Trails conservancy. There was an article on them and the trails in the recent Trailer Life magazine. Enjoy.

YIKES! Sending you a comment take me to several pages. Finally checked "goggle", signed in and here we are!

Looks like a really great bike ride. This is the kind of park my husband would like. With the owl....they have different sounds. At our house sometimes we hear two owls in the vicinity of our house talking back and forth to each other.

Howard and Linda I don't know how long you are going to be where you are but you are only about 5 hours from us.....if you don't have anything better to do you could always come hang out with us in Mountain City TN...there's a really cool little place called Backbone Rock (Damascus) with a small park (No hookups $10 a night)- your kind of place --there's always hiking on the Appalachian Trail -If you are going to be close to I 81 let us know --Jenny and Don

Can you describe your TV setup? What equipment do you have to be able to TIVO?

Loved the bike ride...

We've added that Rail-Trail to our "TODOS" list.

Our list is getting really long... we need to get this house sold soon :o)

Keep having fun for the rest of us...it makes us smile!!

Where did you get the stuff to re-do your lounger? We have looked everywhere for that kind of cord and nobody sells it. Ours are "shredded."

Hi Mary,

Here is the link to the replacement "bungee cords":

That website/company, LafumaFurniture.com, is the official warranty handler for Lafuma, so they should have all the replacement parts you would need. :)

Our TV set-up is pretty simple compared to all the new flat-screen and HD stuff out now.

Back in 2005 we were able to get two DVRs from Best Buy that were DirecTV receivers with TIVO integrated. Not long after that, DirecTV and TIVO split and DirecTV had their own DVRs with their own DVR recording process.

We still have our two heavy TVs that came with the rig. Both are standard definition only and we never got a digital converter box, so we can't pick up digital channels via our batwing antenna. We rely solely on satellite.

We are a little different in that we use our rooftop satellite internet dish to also receive our satellite TV signals. We have an attachment to the dish (called a bird on a wire) that allows us to do that, although we still have to pay both a satellite internet AND a separate satellite TV fee.

From the rooftop dish, we have two cables running down through the roof to each of our two DVRs - one in the living area and one in the bedroom. We only have one LNB, so we can only get standard definition and we can't record one show while watching a different one. But we can watch one show while recording a different show at the same time on the other TV/DVR.

Many of our friends now have digital HD TVs and HD satellite reception and HD DVRs. Their TV abilities are far more advanced than what we have.

But the process of using a DVR for recording is pretty simple and most RVers have that capability.

Hope I haven't confused you more. :)
