RE: Deisel vs. Gasoline

I would think that "saving" 8k after spending around 100k for a new 5'r and new truck is such a small percentage to be almost meaningless given the diesel will be the superior powertrain for your application.

RE: Assume diesel and gasser have same torque, compare...

I'll still be at the campground before you. Your specific narrow hypothetical situation might beat me to the top of the pass but you'll have a hard time passing a gas station. And Go BA Tigers! Class of 88

RE: Death Valley In March

spent 9 days there in March 09 all of it dry camping. There was never any problems at Furnace Creek or Stovepipe wells getting a site. Mesquite Springs was full by late afternoon.

RE: 2 tow or not 2 tow

Hire a DOT licensed and insured "Hot Shot" delivery driver to move your TT.

RE: I 5 or CH 99

We took I-5 during the Christmas holiday and the traffic was terrible south of the 580 interchange until we turned left towards Bakersfield. Trust it was because of the holidays.

RE: Pathfinder vs 4Runner for towing

and have never had any luck with American vehicles or known anyone who did. Seriously? You must not know many people.... My US cars have served my very well. My sons Subaru has been the most problematic $$$$ car I've ever owned and I just spent $2500 for maintenance, radiator, clutch, slave cyl, engine seals on my Mazda. My Dodge Durango has been 100% trouble free over the 7 years we've owned it. A V6 SUV will get poor mileage when towing close enough to what any typical V8 will get to not even worry about. The advantages of V8 power makes cross country travels much nicer.

RE: Boondocking safety

If you are boondocking where there are hordes of partying teens you are not very far from civilization. I've never had any issues.

RE: GM sale numbers falling even with new pickup line

Ford has the lock on its "no matter how bad" cult following and also enjoys the newer patriot support for standing on its own. Dodge is chipping away at a good GM product more so than eating into Ford. The current GM is not so great in the outside looks department with a very nice interior. The current Ford is ugly on the outside and ugly on the inside. Ram has a good looking exterior and interior with some new and innovative truck features. TONS of people are really troubled with GM's association with our current administration. Don't underestimate the power of patriotism. Live Free or Die my friends

RE: Minimum stay at Yellowstone?

The next time I visit Yellowstone will be for no less than ten days. Should my next visit be a winter trip I've always wanted to do, I think 4 to 5 days would be enough?

RE: Tundra with a Cummins?

The restyled Tundra is stupid ugly! Who cares what's behind that grill...

RE: Do you cover your trailer in the winter?

I put a tarp over the top every winter. We only get the occasional wind storm and we never get a constant wind that could cause abrasion wear. It really is more to help keep all the tree debris off than the constant rain. It really helps keep the entire rig cleaner. There are more than enough vents and other roof attachments that keep the tarp suspended in many places and allows air to circulate. Found the perfect sized tarp on ebay that is only slightly larger than the roof surface.

Miami - Key West - Naples areas

NO RV – This will be a Fly n Drive Vacation as we only have 12 days. Planning a visit to Miami, Key West & Naples areas April 2-12 2014. Will fly in and out of Miami. Points of Interest beyond the cities on my list are Dry Torugas & Everglades. What else should I consider to see and do other than laying about on a beach? Any special eateries? Thanks

RE: Dry camping battery charging options

Add a second battery first and then buy a small generator like a Honda or Yamaha 1000 inverter generators (light, quiet, and fuel efficient). If your current battery is 4 + years old, I'd replace it also to maximize the 2nd battery. Weather in Yellowstone is unpredictable at best so solar is not a guarantee. We were there in early August 06 and had daily rain storms in the afternoon and a couple of nights it dropped below freezing. Using your TV to recharge is the least effective method. Hope you enjoy Yellowstone as much as we did. The place is amazing!

RE: Route from West Glacier to Coeur d' Alene

Highway 2 is a great route. Scenic and easy.

RE: question regarding highway 20 through Washington State

It's a typical mountain road with all the climbs, descents, and sharp curves one should be prepared for. The grades are 5-7% with most being no longer than 3 miles. Very doable assuming you have an adequate tow vehicle for your 32 foot trailer.

RE: Ca hwy 168 grade percent

From the Mountain Directory West: Between Prather and Shaver Lake hwy 168 includes an 11 mile 7% grade. The lower 8 miles are 4 lane. Very few curves are marked. This is a very steep grade. There is a T intersection at the bottom. The upper 3 miles are two lane with very sharp curves. Along the side of Shaver Lake there are a few short but steep climbs and descents with very sharp switchbacks. Above Shaver Lake hwy 168 climbs for 7 miles at 6-7% to Tamarack Ridge, el 7582'. This is a good two lane with 40 mph curves. Between Tamarack Ridge and Lakeshore includes several short 6-7% climbs and descents.

RE: Observations from a week at the beach....

One of the best trip reports I've read in years. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Recommended locations 3-4 hours from Seattle with kids?

Kids = Cd'A, Idaho and Silverwood amusement park. Unlikely you'll find campsites available at Silverwood but Farragut might. There are several CG's near Cd'A.

RE: Seattle to McCall, Idaho

Like Pauli said. Yes there are some big passes. Good news is that heading to McCall you'll be heading down the steep parts. If you've pulled Stevens Pass, you'll be just fine.
