RE: Grand Canyon north Rim

This is a shot of our coach on May 18, 2011 at the Demotte NFS campground about 7 miles north of the North Rim park entrance. The park was open and not very crowded.

RE: Zion to Escalante - UPDATE

Why can't you use the tunnel?? I believe the max length is 50 feet which you should be under while hooked up. You would have to pay the $15 fee for large vehicles but that would be better than going around plus if you don't go through the tunnel you miss some pretty unusual landscape east of the tunnel.

RE: RVing during Pandemic and looking relocate

As far as RV parks go, you may want to to check the blog in our signature. In particular the 2013 and 2016 trip spent considerable time along the NW coast. The 2016 trip concentrated on Oregon with a month each in Brookings, Florence and Lincoln City. We probably enjoyed the month in Lincoln City the most as it had the most amenities as far as restaurants, crafts stores, etc. As far as traveling during the pandemic, I don't think you will have any problem other than finding RV parks that are not full. Reservations are pretty well necessary. Check in may be a little different but most RV parks are open and doing a busy season. State parks being open are hit or miss and difficult to stay in for any length of time.

RE: Columbia, SC., campgrounds

Barnyard RV Park is a decent park just west of I-26 off US-1 though we usually stay about 50 miles north near the Joanna exit on I-26 at the Magnolia RV Park as it is a little less out of the way and a little less expensive.

RE: Map of US and Canada

The province map is located in the same place as the state map - EPG Soft. Just click on the Visited States Map and then select Visited Provinces Map. This will give you another map for Canada, You will then need to use another program like Irfanview to merge the two pictures (US and Canada) into one for posting in a signature.

RE: I-65 through Alabama

We went that way last March and I don't remember I-65 between Montgomery and Birmingham being a bad road at all except the section going through Birmingham itself. That section is still rough as a cob and will jar you to the bone. Between the two cities the traffic is usually horrendous but, in March, I guess the Covid-19 had thinned it out a bit and it was the best trip we have made and we have made a lot along that road.

RE: Travellogues

You may want to bookmark our travel journal though we have now quit traveling and spend our summers in the Smokies. Our subscription to the Trip Journal site will expire in one month after 12 years of subscription and posting about every stop (with lots of pictures) on those six month trips covering all 49 continental US states and a good many provinces of Canada. I believe the multiyear listing will go away after the subscription expires Aug 7 and only the current year will be available.

RE: i40 between West from Asheville, NC

We are staying in Waynesville this summer and come and go over that section several times. Going to one lane will delay you a little bit but not near as much as trying to avoid it on another route. With the reduced travel due to the pandemic it isn't as bad as it would be in a normal summer.

RE: PORTLAND OR en route to South Dakota, and back

We stayed at 7th Ranch RV Camp a few years ago and found it to be a nice place with large 50 amp FHU pull-throughs. It is located just south of Garyowen and very close to the Little Bighorn Battlefield NM. During this pandemic I would give them a call to make sure they are open. There are some pictures of our site there on our blog if you would like to see them. You might check other blog entries before and after that stop to see other places we stopped along I-90.

RE: Route 34 from Estes Park through Loveland Pass

Now you got me confused! I thought the original post was talking about going from Estes Park to Loveland on US 34. Further researching I see that Loveland Pass is actually south of I-70 on US 6, nowhere near Estes Park or US 34 so I have no idea of what the OP was referring to!

RE: Route 34 from Estes Park through Loveland Pass

We took it back in 2011 in our signature rig - a 40 ft DP pulling a Jeep Liberty, and had no problems whatsoever. The road is a little crooked but nothing alarming.

RE: Leveling Question

Lower both rear wheels a little bit, both at the same time, and you should be fine. You will be a little off front to back but as long as you leave your reefer off there shouldn't be a problem. If you have a residential reefer you don't even have to worry about that.

RE: Magna Shade install

There are definitely less expensive ways than the Magna Shade but we wouldn't be without ours. It has worked very well for four years now and being able to put it up without ladders is very important for us. Everything about it is top notch, including the company that makes it. They have very good support and even sent us new glue pads at no cost when we had to install it again on a new windshield.

RE: Western NC activities

We spend our summers at Trails End RV Park which is about 5 minutes from Maggie Valley, 6 or 7 minutes to Waynesville, about 15 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, about 20 minutes from Cherokee, about 25 minutes from Asheville, and about 1.5 hours from Gatlinburg, TN. The RV park is small with a few full-timers, a few seasonals like ourselves and several transient spots that normally require an advance reservation, though this summer may be different. We arrived last Thursday and are currently half-way through our mandatory 14 day self-quarantine. The whole area is completely shut down due to a stay-at-home order that will probably be rescinded Friday though what will take its place is anyone's guess. I would think it will be a month or two before anything close to normal conditions will occur. That being said, the area is a great one to just come and relax and enjoy the mountains. Waynesville is quaint with a lot of little shops, several nice restaurants, a very nice performing arts theater and Lake Junaluska where you can fish but where I try to get some exercise by walking around it a few times a week on a nice paved path. Maggie Valley is more of a typical tourist trap but has suffered immensely in last few years but does have many hotel/motels, restaurants and small shops. Cherokee is another touristy place but it also includes a Harrah's Casino for those that like that kind of entertainment. We enjoy or summers here as the RV park is very nice with great hosts and the weather is much nicer in the summer than our normal S&B in Florida. The RV park requires you be completely self-contained as there are no rest rooms. The only amenities are nice gravel sites, some with concrete patios, that are 50 amp full-hookup with great WiFi and cable.

RE: St George, UT to Cannonville, UT (Bryce Canyon Trip)

I would, and have, taken the road (UT-9) from Zion and straight through the tunnel to Carmel, then north on 89 to 12. That saves a lot of time and only costs $15 for the rangers at Zion to stop the traffic through the tunnels so only traffic going your direction is in the tunnel and you have the whole road to ride the centerline. You can read the requirements for using the tunnel at

RE: Daytona 500 camp ground

There are a couple of RV parks near the track. Daytona Racetrack RV is just NE of the tracks and the track entry is almost a mile away. Daytona Speedway RV is SW of the track and about a 1.5 miles from the entrance. Those distances are on foot, driving can be much farther depending on route.

You had better jump on that 129. Their web site says it's now 159 for motorhomes! :E
