RE: Roll Call Alaska 2016

Someone mentioned staying in the park for a better experience. The campground above/@ Savage River I understand is closed due to unfriendly bear(s) max POV allowed is mm 12.4. (Savage River is 17.4mm) Don't know for how long but I don't need the hassle of a better experience with a PO'd bear outside my door at night. I just looked at Denali's web site and there are no campground closures in Denali. https://www.nps.gov/dena/planyourvisit/campgrounds.htm Also...bears don't just stay in the park....they cruise the RV parks, too! :) The front campground of Denali - Riley Creek - is very nice. There's lots to do there - ranger programs, easy hikes, etc. You can take the bus tour to Eilson Visitor Center or further if you want. The drivers are very informative and are excellent at spotting the animals. They stop and let you view them. We spent 5 nights in Riley Creek without reservations but pulled in early morning when folks were leaving. We also spent 5 nights at Teklanika campground. We saw THE mountain on beautiful sunny days 7 of 10 days and all the major animals many times. The park was a great experience.

RE: Dry camp between Sedro Wooley and Bellingham, WA

If Rockport on Hwy 20 isn't too far there's Howard Miller Steelhead Park which is terrific for big rigs. You'd need reservations though at this time. Best sites: #8 and 10 on the river or very large sites #20-49.

RE: Yosomite Tuolumne campground to Zion NP

The best way would be Tioga Pass to 395 at Lee Vining and pick up Nevada 6/50 to 21 at Cedar Basin Nat'l Park to I-15 south at Beaver, Ut to Hwy 9 east to Zion. That is...if Tioga Pass is open at that time. To us, that would be a long drive for one day. If you're that pressed for time could you knock off a day at Yosemite?

RE: Altitude sickness...

5 days is a long time for altitude sickness to last if you've been drinking a lot of water and resting. Have you tried driving to a lower elevation? Do you still feel the same? If so, I'd see a doctor. With the monsoons on us now, Pinetop/Lakeside/Show Low aren't going to be as hot as they were a few weeks ago. If you spend a day in those areas and don't feel like you have, I'd move lower. Good luck!

RE: Full timing FW

Dual pane tinted windows Two air conditioners Re-think the washer/dryer - you can do two weeks' worth in 1-1/2 hours in the town laundry...especially helpful if you like public parks. W/D = doing laundry constantly in small amounts. You also need full hookups. Make sure your truck is suitable to tow the 5th wheel. They are heavy nowadays.

RE: golf carts / camp vehicles

Check out the parks you plan to use it. Many RV parks don't allow them and public parks sometimes only allow them to exit and re-enter the park. Your dogs would probably enjoy walking. It would be good for everyone.

RE: How long before buying a toad

We went from a 5th wheel so naturally had the big ole' truck but we purposely went to a motorhome so we could tow a Jeep. It gave us lots of pleasure and entertainment 4-wheeling on gorgeous roads. We could never be without a car for siteseeing. That's the purpose we RV'd - to see things. We don't sit in a campground.

RE: National Park- Motorhome legnth?

OP: You will have absolutely no problem fitting into many of the popular national parks with your 32'. We didn't with our 40'. We also didn't make reservations. There are plenty of campgrounds that don't even accept reservations such as in Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Glacier, Zion, etc. The only change you might have to do is to get to a campground by early afternoon, preferably in the morning when folks are leaving. We've also gotten into reservable campgrounds in national parks by picking up a cancellation or no-show by being there early morning. Since you're in California, the state parks there might give you some problems but that's the only state we found like that. Regardless, there are awesome national forest campgrounds and county parks in California that are way better than the state parks. Bottom line - you won't have problems.

RE: Do you travel on the 4TH July weekend

As full-timers we couldn't stay at home in a sticks & bricks. Our RV WAS our home. However, we always found a place, usually a national forest campground, that was away from any kind of water - lake, stream, pool. We found that folks going to that same place do so for the quietness. We've never been disappointed. We'd get there on Tues or Wed and stay at least until July 5. No reservations needed. Same for the other 3-day holidays. We let the working folks have their fun at those times.

RE: Age restrictions

The age, price, or the condition of an RV has nothing to do with the personalities of the people that come with them. Not talking about "personalities" here. Talking about trouble makers and potential for criminal activity. Will an age rule weed all that out? No, but it sure helps. Is your statement based on any known fact or did you just pull it out of part of your anatomy? We've run across trouble makers in high class RVs, too. The age of an RV doesn't even suggest to me of a potential trouble maker. It suggests that the RVer is happy with what he can afford or with what suits him.

RE: Winter Colds

I done my share of 'internet medicine' which I've found to be way more unreliable than just going to the doctor. I've had allergies all my life and what I get down south is way worse than that. Sorry your trip south gives you problems. Have you tried different areas?

RE: Weather warning 4 Alaska....July 1st/2nd..update

^^^ This is the honest truth! ^^^ I love camping and ATV'ing all over south central Alaska, but this weekend will be a "stay-cation" due to the massive crowds everywhere. I have the camper moved to the back of my mountain side property, fire pit, and camp chairs all ready to camp out in the solitude of Hiland Mountain near Eagle River. I should be able to watch Eagle River's fireworks show from our fire pit. It sounds like a perfect spot for the holiday...lucky you!

RE: Too old???

If you would like it its up to you, If you think you're to old its up to you. Here is our history. I retired at 62 wife 61 we sold house went fulltimeing for 7 years had a heart attack. Bought a park model got tired of that.In the mean time wife has bad back with electrodes in her back and 4th stage kidney failure. Back to fulltimeing while we can April last year. I had another heart attack 2 days before Christmas 2015. We are now 77/78 and living full time in the motorhome. 4 months in Florida for the winter and 8 months running around like 2 youngsters only a little slower. You're an inspiration!

RE: Expectations of a Newbie

We could never RV without a vehicle for siteseeing. Renting is out for the places we like to explore. If you plan to go to a tourist area and basically stay in the RV park for most of your stay then, yes, you can do it without a vehicle and probably rent. If you want to explore an area thoroughly, especially mountain areas and backroads, a vehicle is the way to go.
