RE: US 191 Flaming Gorge area

No problem, made same trip last June/July. Recommend Skull Creek Campground near the Gorge. Small & quiet. Was able to fit our 36' Class A into a site all the way to the rear of the CG that allowed us full use of our solar, sat TV & ATT service. Great location central to daytrips in Flaming Gorge. Continued on Northward without any issues. One of our best stops on the trip. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: Bringing a motorcycle or not to Mexico?

A 250 they will add to your vehicle permit. Just so you know, you cannot insure it for collision only liability and it will be about $200 US. I use the Driver's License Liability Policy (I use Vagabundos del Mar, but Lewis & Lewis also has coverage) that covers everything I drive for a lot less. Comp & Coll is covered via my USA policy and as stated Motorcycle Comp & Coll will not be covered as well as my OLD Jeep. I pay around $160 for both my DW & myself for a year coverage. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja How do you get this Driver's liability? Does it cover for the Motorhome or only the Motorcycle? Here is a link to Lewis & Lewis info! https://secure.mexicanautoinsurance.com/buy/drivers-license-mexican-auto-insurance/drivers-license-mexican-auto-insurance.lasso#coverage

Baja Road Report

This is a road report I just received from VAGABUNDOS DEL MAR BOAT AND TRAVEL CLUB, http://www.vagabundos.com/ , via email. "ROAD REPORTS August 2016 Members currently traveling the Baja have reported short delays due to construction. Following safe driving methods on the road, there haven't been any reports of problems. Check the Hotbox on our website for detailed road reports. In San Quintin, the road from Don Eddie's past Lazaro Cardenas Road, about 13 miles, is now paved. This is a long awaited road improvement. About 12 miles south of Guerrero Negro the road is under construction. Travelers will be detoured on to dirt washboard roads for about three miles. On Highway 5, between Puertecitos and San Felipe, some of the potholes have been patched. Keep your eyes on the road at all times. Unexpected vados might surprise you and sometimes they are difficult to see ahead. 10 miles south of Ensenada there is road construction. Little by little they are widening the road and taking out some of the unsafe bridges. You'll have approximately 10 miles of bypassed dirt road. This bypass area is reasonably in good condition. From Catavina to the Bay of LA turn off, the road is in BAD condition, potholes and big sections of blacktop missing. About 10 miles north on Highway 1 out of La Paz is the most substantial construction. Last but not least 24 miles of incomplete road is south of San Felipe on Mex 5 to its junction with Highway 1. There were large crews of people and equipment working on the road." rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: Bringing a motorcycle or not to Mexico?

I have many times but only ride in rural areas & off-road. No TIP required for 250cc. I cable lock EVERYWHERE to an anchor/post or something unmovable or the bike/motorcycle/scooter WILL disappear. Also cable lock my UTV when taken SOB. Of course I also cable lock everything at night in States. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: 40 days Boondocking / Dry Camping

Just returned from a 51 day trip thu Utah, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, Washington and Nevada. Boondock & Dry Camp 40 days of the 51. Would have been more but someone caravan back with us to AZ who needed shore power since the Temps were 100+ degrees. Drove only 200 miles on freeways on the way to Pacific Northwest but drove freeway 700 miles of the homeward bound leg. Used Free Campsites, https://freecampsites.net/, and US Campgrounds, http://www.uscampgrounds.info/ for all the camping. NO Walmarts, LOL! Great Trip! rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja 720 Watts Solar 660 amp hours of Battery excellent ! I'm looking for possible boondock sites in Utah.. would appreciate a pm with lat/long and any other info you might share.. thanks PM'd all sites we stayed at came from the two websites posted on here and checked on google earth. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: WOW!!

Good argument for not letting older RV's into a park. Older RV does not mean someone doesn't have $. I chose not to put no more money in a bad investment than I have to. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: 40 days Boondocking / Dry Camping

Sounds great. I have 540 Watts Solar and 500 amp hours of Battery. Have portable solar generator. Couple questions: 1) Is your 720 watts on top of your rig? 2) You mention friends needed AC...which implies you did not. Are you able to run AC for short periods All solar is on the roof. Have to run the gen when using AC, takes two units to cool the rig. We tried to stay high enough in the mountains to limit gen use. Mostly successful. No replacement for a gen when it is hot and you need AC. Leg home was just too hot so we also used the shore power. Sorry about not being clear. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: Which route to San Carlos

IMHO, Coming from the East cross at Nogales when going South to San Carlos. Return thu Douglas. Coming from North of Nogales use Nogales for both going & return. Coming from the West cross at Nogales or Lukeville but return thu Lukeville. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: highway 191 from Green River Wy to Vernal Utah

Camped in the Green River CG at Dino Nat Mont two weeks ago. River is running at max so the Bugs were really bad. Only stayed one night and moved on up to Flaming Gorge. Did enjoy the Dino bone wall. Arrive early as the campground was full before dusk, even the first come side. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: What's your Boondocking Temperature?

We turn the gen on in the high 80s, just gets too hot in the MH without a lot of shade and/or breeze. Outside is fine to 100. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: Florida SP's Still Available

Just as a follow-up to my recent posting in which I voiced surprise at how some Florida State Parks are booked solid for next winter, I've been able to work my way down the east coast, over to the central area, and up the west side by booking pretty well state parks only (my preferred type of camping), all just by staying north of Highway 70. I've done this before and while yes, it can be cool at times, generally it's still quite warm. (I guess having worked many years in the Artic helps.) By the way, if you attempt this, don't expect to finish in an afternoon. :) Ron, what parks did you get in? When we made our reservations months ago there were only one or two spaces remaining in the parks we will be staying in. One of our parks we normally stay in was all ready full and others parks we were not able to get our normal space and had to accept a lesser space. rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: Pickup truck permit issues

When did this start? Had no problem getting a TIP for my 3/4 ton heavy duty pulling the 5er into Mexico. Wasn't a 10 year like the 5er had but was good for 180 days. OR are we talking about a different issue? rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja

RE: Extreme Newbie question

I have camped at the Reef RV park at the end of May and the first week of June. Used my AC only in the afternoon, opened up the windows at night. It may get to 100 in town, but the breeze off the sea is nice. Water temp is great for swimming (watch for stingrays). Easy drive-I have done it alone many times. Reef is in Rocky Point and we also have stayed there. Good location (the new pier has messed things up a bit) but there are a couple other locations if you want to be closer to downtown! rocmoc n AZ/Fld/Baja
