RE: No I did NOT sign up for your emails

My Preferences do not stay unchecked and yes, I click on "Submit Changes". Then I go back in to Preferences and they're unchecked. A few days later they are again checked. I just did it again....so frustrating. It's like they'll email you or send you tons of paper even though you uncheck that you don't want it. Anyone else with this problem?

RE: Baker's Hole CG - West Yellowstone

We've gotten there by late morning and have gotten a site with our 40' MH. There's usually musical chairs in the morning when the electric sites become vacant then the dry campers move to them which frees up the dry camping spots. We prefer the dry camping spots - nice river views. Come in with full water and empty tanks. Good luck!

RE: Whats the best car to tow ??

observations going down the road...i think you'll count more Jeep Wranglers being towed behind an RV than any other single make or model. Indeed, Jeeps are very easy and simple when it comes to flat towing. However, they do not fit the bill for many folks, for various reasons. Especially for those for which the 'toad' has to also serve as an everyday driving vehicle when not camping/RVing. Jeeps are awesome for going offroad, but that offroad prowess comes at a price in terms of road manners, comfort. I know they've got much better in recent years, but overall, Jeeps can be a VERY uncomfortable ride on pavement, and due to their design they can also be extremely lacking in various 'creature comforts' many other vehicles have (yes, I have driven and rode in several of them). Will Will, you really need to test drive the new Jeep Cherokee (different from Grand Cherokee). It is a luxery car with very nice appointments along with lots of room for passengers and trunk space. It's quiet on the road and extremely comfortable. It will change you mind on Jeeps. :)

RE: Campground Question

It's one thing when you leave earlier than expected and leave for good. When you leave for a few hours during the day, the park doesn't have to know that. You paid for that site and it's yours until you leave for good. The park has their record of when you're supposed to leave. They should NOT re-assign that site. Really. How difficult is this to understand?

RE: Boondocking in Hyder?

Both Hyder and Stewart are very close to the bear viewing area - perhaps a 10-15 minute drive. Yes, there are gates across the bear viewing boardwalk and no one is allowed on it until employees make a 'sweep' of it first thing in the morning to make sure there isn't a bear snoozing on the platform. :) I don't recall places to boondock but as stated, Hyder and Stewart have campgrounds. We stayed in Stewart. Be sure to allow time for a fish dinner at the Bus in Hyder!

RE: camping spots in and around bryce canyon

The OP is probably there already. :) He was going 7/19.

RE: Campground Question

We have worked at parks and there's absolutely no excuse for assigning someone else to a site that has been paid for already unless the site occupant stopped at the office and said "we're leaving and not coming back". Otherwise, that site is yours for the duration. There should be no assumptions that you're not returning. Yes, it would have been ideal if you had left something on that site when you left or told the office, however, it shouldn't be necessary. The office has a record of what sites are sold. How did they even know you were gone? Did they go to look at the site before re-assigning it? I don't think so.

Here's a 2014 Towing Guide: 2014 Towing Guide If you are looking for an older year vehicle, there are older guides available by searching. Things change every year with cars.

RE: How durable/reliable are slideouts?

If you must have them know that the key is LOTS of preventive maintenance... and a large dose of luck.:R Like I said, we've had slides for 16 years without problems. We have done no preventative maintenance, have not replaced seals, do not get air coming in and they roll out smoothly. Guess we're lucky.

RE: Medicines while traveling

Beware of Walmart's lower med prices. They use third world pharmaceutical companies. That is why their prices are so low. Check the labels on your meds you will be shocked to see what countries your meds are coming from. And they do NOT have to follow the US standards. FDA did an expose on these countries pharmaceutical practices and it goes from not the right dosage to dangerous impurities in the products. If you saw the pictures of where and how these pills are made you would never put one in your mouth ever again! Nope. I won't ever buy meds from Walmart. In fact I always REFUSE a generic being used for my prescriptions also. You are incorrect. We worked in the pharmaceutical industry. Generics and WalMart are perfectly safe.

RE: Steps to full-time.

Hopefully, the Moderator will move this to the Full-timing Forum. If you do a search for 'domicile' you'll come up with lots of reading. One state is not ideal for everyone so you'll have to research. There are three main states for domicile: Texas, South Dakota, Florida. We belong to the Escapees RV Club in Texas ($29.99 special right now), and use their mail forwarding service with excellent results. It works for us. Good luck with your new lifestyle.

Challis Hot Springs RV Park is in a gorgeous area of the Sawtooths in Idaho.

RE: Best route from Oregon to Utah

I-5 to Bakersfield and east to I-15 to St. George is 1100 miles. I-5 north to I-84 to Boise to I-15 south to St. George is 1242 miles. OR138 to 97 and north to Bend then US20 east to I-84 just north of Boise to I-84 to I-15 to St. George is 1127 miles. OR138 is the route we'd suggest. Have a good trip!

RE: When Do You Leave Arizona in the Spring ?

To us, March and April are wonderful times - less crowds and gorgeous flowers. May is hot. Arriving in November is perfect. As full-timers, we found that March and even April can be way too early to begin heading too far north. Southern Utah would be great at that time but not mountainous areas. Although each year is different with no guarantees.

RE: Possible Big Repairs, Used Motor Home

This is very helpful. I didn't make it clear; my main worry is about the engine and transmission of the motorhome, as this is what I have no experience with. Through my 5th wheel, I know all about refrigerators, AC's, water pumps, etc. I figure the big items would be the engine/transmission? 30,000 miles in 14 years, oil, filters and tires .. Cummins 8.3 ISC Allison 6 speed. Spartan chassis. One major PITA, a loose ECM causing the engine to quit as it felt like it. more trouble shooting than money spent. Our Cummins/Spartan/Allison is 10 years old and no engine/transmission problems. 70,000 miles on it.

RE: Campsite pad sizes in Glacier question

We had our 40' MH and Jeep in Apgar. We didn't have reservations - just drove in early morning.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

April 30 is still a bit early to cross the U.S. border. Many businesses will still be closed, including campgrounds and there will still be ice on the lakes and possibly a late season snow storm. The 3rd week of May would be much better.

RE: Helpful Ideas for Alaskan Travels

A good time to cross the U.S. border is toward the end of May. Before that, ice will still be on the lakes and some businesses will still be closed.
