RE: Who says we are not all family

thanks for the great story of human kindness... something we all need to hear more often these days.

RE: Wapiti Campground vs Rex Hale Campgroung - NFS Cody WY

we have camped at both of them. rex hale is more open, with less shrubbery etc to block views of the canyons walls, etc. having elec is nice, with 50amp power. wapiti is closed in with thick shrubbery and trees, so each campsite is more private. and it is closer to Cody, for coming and going, etc. 30amp power. DH says the spots are smaller than rex hale, but doable. we also stay down at Buffalo Bill State Park which is very nice, with or without elec. and after the the middle of Sept, they don't bother with reservations which are only important if you're going to be there in hot weather and need a/c.

RE: Benson, AZ area RV parks?

we stay at Quarter Horse Motel and RV, but since we're only there to sleep, we don't mind being close to the trains that come through about every 30 minutes during the day. A much nice rv park is the Butterfield RV resort, all paved and only 1 or 2 blocks off main street. We have stayed at Kartchner Caverns State Park, too, and it is VERY nice, but about 8/9 miles south of Benson.

RE: Gros Ventre Campground, Dump and Fill - Fee ???

I stand corrected by my husband who says there is a sign at the dump site that says there is a charge (for non campers), but he can't recall how much. you can find out by searching gros ventre campground.

RE: Gros Ventre Campground, Dump and Fill - Fee ???

we've been staying at Gros Ventre many years and have never seen a sign that limits dumping and fresh water to paying campers, but I suspect that there will be if non paying campers rush to take advantage of a "freebie".

RE: Which Way from Napa to Quartzite?

highway 95 CA side or AZ side. From Needles CA....the CA side will be less populated, with less traffic. The AZ side will take you through Lake Havasu City and Parker, both filled with winter visitors, etc and rv parks galore...but not exceptionally congested. It's more scenic.

RE: Omaha to Mt Rushmore route through Nebraska?

ditto to RoyF post. If you use 385, there will be a fork in the road north of Alliance, with 385 to the left and 79 to the right. Left will take you through Hot Springs, and then through Custer which has a lot of rv parks and Custer State Park (a real gem) 79 to the right will take you to Rapid City.

RE: road trip in Feb or March

ditto to Williamsburg and also Jamestown, and if you like horses, the Assateague ponies.
TexasShadow 11/06/20 09:27am Roads and Routes

we don't use an rv specific app, but we do use a truck app and that works pretty good.

RE: best non interstate route from Cottonwood to Albuquerque

60 is a good road to use. There are some BLM camp sites near Datil, and Socorro has an rv park on the south end of town.

RE: Easiest route from Grand Canyon (Williams) to Bluff, UT

the last time we took 191 north from I 40, several years ago, part of the road was rougher than a cob, but passable. Maybe that has improved. Other than that, there are no grade problems I can think of. From Bluff, if you go north, the road rises gradually, but steadily all the way to Moab, I think. If you decide to go that way, go south on 180 from Holbrook, down to the south entrance of Petrified Forest, then drive north up through the park...then you won't have to back track.

RE: Camping and Traveling in the west in Winter

Truck stops will be your best bet. Many Flying Js have parking for rvs apart from trucks, but not all, but you can park with the trucks if necessary. their dump stations may be open. your own water freezing will be something you'll have to watch carefully.

RE: Food Storage

we have one in one of the basement storage compartments. we don't use it if we are going to boondock more than a couple days, but it's very handy for carrying extra meat and vegies, etc.

RE: Get me out of here! PLEASE

I don't like being on the outside edge of a mountain road, either, but I love crossing those passes and being in the mountains, sooooo...I just close my eyes when I need to. The only stretch of road that really got to me was highway 12 in Utah...the hogback ridge part, but that only lasts about 3 minutes. As others have stated, move back to the dinette and pull the shade, or turn your chair away from the side window or close your eyes.

RE: Food - Utah Mighty Five Loop

the last time we stayed at Thousand Lakes RV park on the west side of Torrey, they offered great Cinnamon Buns in the a.m. and on Fridays, they had a steak supper offered, also very good...not cheap, but good. :) This was about 5 to 7 years ago, so be aware of that.

RE: campground recommendation

re NE Utah from Rock Springs WY.......that's a long drive, but I guess you could do it as a long day trip.......if you're talking about going south down to Dutch John on 191 and then back north through Manila and highway 530, or just reversing up 191 back to Rock Springs. And from what you said about driving a day, camping a night and driving on.... you can do it...but stay at the Firefighters campground south of Dutch John and up on top of the pass. Nice campground.

RE: campground recommendation

ditto to Cabela's at Sidney. But Check out Pine Bluffs WY for an rv park because it is right on the state line and is a pretty little area.
