Re: Looking to buy solar panels

I have a ZAMP 80W panel these days for our 13ft Scotty. All that is required really as we don't have a fridge in the trailer. The ZAMP are not cheap but it folds in half for much easier storage than the full size panels and it has full metering on it so I now what the heck is going on power wise. Us...

Re: What’s going on with Hickoks for 2019?

I heard a rumor last year that the Donaldsons folks were going to buy it. I think the number was $1.4 million, or somewhere in there. I go there everyday while at FCP, I hope nothing ever happens to it. I have been in that place since the 70's, it's an FCP institution! Yeah Phil (Trading Post) has ...

Re: What’s going on with Hickoks for 2019?

Last I heard Roger was in real bad shape. Livery is still for sale. They almost sold to Saranac Lake Marina last summer but they couldn’t agree and the sale never went through. I’d expect Billy will have it open again this summer.

Re: I expected a ton of cancellations by now...

When are you looking at going? We have to cancel site 120 for Jun 17-Jul 1 if that helps.

I picked up a great site mid July on a cancellation.

Re: I expected a ton of cancellations by now...

I picked up 8 days mid July last week. There are always cancellations. There were lots in the late late fall. Might be people are now waiting more last minute to cancel this year? Good luck!

Re: Reservation Issues

Yes the timeout is 2 minutes. More family members and friends and multiple devices win. Also the RA app doesn't require all the reCaptcha bot checking. Timing is important too. I am working on a lengthy Reservation Tips section which will appear on the NY State Campsite Photos website shortly. So ma...

Re: Reservation Issues

I don't know which time server they are using exactly. I always ensure my clock on my Mac is reset to be as accurate as possible and I double check it against the Emerald Time app on my iPhone. I'm surprised you don't get the reCaptcha Box on Firefox. I do. Maybe you didn't today but they will be ap...

Re: Reservation Issues

A few Bots have been around for a while. I highly doubt they are used by many. Besides RA has anti bot measures in place these days. A Bot might not have any better chance than a handful of mouse clickers anyways trying to get through at exactly 9:00:00am by RAs clock. And you can't transfer reserva...

Re: Reservation Issues

You can't extend a 14 day (or less) reservation until 18 days after you initially make the reservation so there is no way to extend it before someone else gets to book the site after the 14 days. With so much competition it is becoming obvious that so many people are booking whatever they can get an...

Re: Limekiln in May

Photos of Limekiln site 102 are available on the NY State Campsite Photos site. It is quite private. We stayed there several years ago. It's rated for a 30ft trailer. See https://www.campadk.com/campsitephotos/ ... e/site/102
