Don't worry, the pressure will come up once he gets some heat in the tires.
That's my plan but if it doesn't go off I'll put air in them.

And good morning gentlemen.



Over the weekend, the DW threw out the idea of renting an RV for our trip to WDW and staying at Ft. Wilderness. After playing with the numbers, the cost seems to be a wash compared to staying at AoA. DW has a gluten intolerence so the RV would make meals easier on the way down and breakfast. Also we had to make three potty stops during a three hour drive last week. So cutting out potty stops would be a plus. It looks like there are a ton of activities and it is close to MK. The "Unofficial Guide" says transportation is not the best and the resort is huge and renting a golf cart is a must.

Has anyone stayed there or have any thoughts?

Never stayed there, but we go over quite a bit. It's a pretty cool area, with some neat campground activities. The transportation is ok, there's a boat dock for MK, and the contemporary, besides the regular busses. Getting from your spot to those locations is the issue though, and where the need for a golf cart comes in.


I'd like to stay someday. Need to convince DW though.

Never stayed there, but I would. You have a bus route, or the best is a direct boat launch that takes you to MK. They are also on CR, FW, & WL boat route. I've eaten at Trail's End, and it is a good buffet with cheapest buffet prices. The resort is really big, and it would be quite a walk, depending on where you get to park RV. Maybe others can help there.

My sister has a gluten allergy, and got very, very sick last week. I'll share something she learned from this experience.

She always loves going to Disney World, because they are very good about providing good gluten free alternatives. She can really eat better there than she can at most other places. She loves getting cheeseburgers at Disney World because she can eat them with an actual bun. The problem turned out to be french fries. They told her they could make gluten free fries, and they were fried in their own dedicated fryer. She ate this meal for the first day or 2 of the trip before getting very sick with a reaction to gluten, but she had no idea where she ate any. She was basically out of commission for about 2 days. Her first day back at the parks, we were in EPCOT. She went to the US pavillion for lunch and apparently the manager there has a better understanding of gluten allergies. She told my sister that they do have gluten free fries, and they're fried in their own dedicated fryer, but Disney re-uses their oil, so the oil in that fryer was probably used on the regular fries yesterday.

So, tell her to be cautious about ordering anything fried from a counter service restaurant. My sister felt confident that table service meals were safe, because the chef would always come out and talk to her and she could tell they understood the situation. At counter service places, it was always just a manager with a separate menu that showed what was or wasn't considered gluten free, so we're pretty certain that was how she got the cross-contamination, especially after hearing that oil story when she wanted to order fries.

Package bacon.
Whole green beans (I always used canned)
8 oz. Catalina dressing (some prefer French)

Slice package of bacon in half.
Select/slice Green beans to be slightly longer that width of bacon.
Roll 3 Green beans in 1/2 slice bacon.
Stab bundle with toothpick.
Put in baking dish.
After all bundles in dish, season with salt/pepper.
Pour Dressing over bundles.
Cover and store in refrigerator overnight.
Cook in oven at 375 for 20 minutes. Flip bundles. Cook another 20-25 minutes until bacon is done.

I think crock part will do well to keep warm, but would be worried about it cooking bacon all the way thru. Raw pork is not good.

Well, just before harvest, we also got a new computer system to use with the scales. Our full time worker didn't want to learn a new system and has been leaning on the temp to do pretty much everything, and the temp is not here today. He's got a total cluster going on up there. So far I've managed to stay out of the middle of everything. Maybe I can manage to take all day just catching up on old e-mails.
Good luck. Sounds like it's time to take another day off.

Hospital appointments are no issue, one is breathing test using some sort of meds, a methacholine challenge, but it's got the word "meth" in it, that can't be all bad, right?, afterwards, is the big follow-up to everything, then I hope to be done with it.
Sorry to hear about the shift. Hope it's not permanent.

Years ago we camped at FW in a Tent. We rented a golf cart and were glad we did. It is a big place. If you want one, reserve it as soon as you can because they get snapped up quickly. I'm not sure how far in advance you can save one. Other than going to MK by water, transportation is sometimes challenging.

While you don't need the comfort stations they are clean and well maintained. There are tons of stuff to do at the resort. The campfire and movie with Chip and Dale is fun. Bring your own marshmallows for smores or you can buy them there ($) As Norm mentioned, Trail's End is a good "Disney" bargain. You can also go to the waterfront and see the water parade. Not sure about pools because when we were there, River Country was still open. The kid's first real water slide.

I liked the overall atmosphere. It was quiet and you are in the woods so animals may pop over to say hi. If you are there at Halloween or Christmas, the guests go all out to decorate their sites. I enjoyed just walking around.

Let me know if you have any other questions and there is a camping forum on the boards.

Thanks for the heads up. DW has suspected for months but just got confirmed about two weeks ago. She has a meeting with the doc tonight to find out how severe. We cut way back on flour awhile ago so our big thing is reading labels of stuff like barbeque sauce to make sure it is OK. We found out the Noodle & Company is really good about watching cross contamination. They'll be getting more of our business in the future.
