RE: Realistic Budget?

Everyone travels differently so it's hard to make a comparison. For us, as full-timers, we wouldn't spend that much for camp fees (we boondock on national forest or BLM lands & because we're 'old' we can use the Senior Pass to get us into the national parks free and 1/2 off on camping there and also at national forest campgrounds & other national public parks, no admission fees as we don't do that kind of entertainment, no Dish and half that for Wireless. Two to three haircuts in 4 months would be plenty for us so your grooming is high. We cook simply and don't go to expensive restaurants and our hobbies are hiking, geocaching, 4-wheeling - things outdoors. So....your budget is high for us. If you're budgeting $30/night for an RV park then it's a good figure. We went from Arizona to Alaska and spent 4 months, including expensive fuel along the way we came in much lower. However, if that's what you spend at home then it's right for you.

RE: Route Suggestion Glacier NP USA to Cassiar Hwy BC

You probably won't be able to drive to Salmon Glacier at Hyder early in the season. They'll still have snow. Also, the bears feeding won't be at Hyder. That's usually an August thing. You might consider returning via the Cassier from Alaska later in the year to experience these, if you're interested. We found the Cassier to be an awesome drive. Also, I'll bet many do not stop at Ksan Historic Village at Hazelton at the beginning of the Cassier. It's worth a stop.

RE: Ideas for a week in Colorado

If entering from the NW don't try to drive east. You don't have enough time. Just continue heading south toward Mesa Verde Nat'l Park, Durango area. At Montrose is Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Ridgeway State Park at Ridgeway is nice. At Grand Junction is Colorado Nat'l Monument with a nice campground or there's a state park nearby. Have a great trip!

RE: Moab, UT

Because you have one issue with a RV park it's no reason to tell everyone to stay away. That's my take.

RE: Walmart etiquette?

First it's ok to run the generator " just to charge the batteries " Then it's ok to let "just one slide out so I can sleep" Then, well just one lawn chair, while the wife shops, I can't stay couped up inside the rv while shes shopping then its, pulled out the grill, because " am I supposed to not eat " before you know it, it will be : NO OVERNIGHT PARKING. TWO HOURS MAX. WILL BE TOWED. Love it!

RE: Bathroom and Kitchen grey water tank sensors

We always wipe the dishes with a used napkin or paper towel before washing, especially fry pans. No grease or coffee grounds went in our tanks. No problems with sensors. No driving around on curvy roads to try different cleaning techniques. No chemicals. Worked for us.

RE: Olympian wave catalytic heaters

Make sure you have monitors installed and don't sleep with it. We used one for 16 years of full-timing and absolutely loved it.

RE: Black tank chemical

LOVE these black tank posts. :) RE: the tank sitting a foot below the floor...the tank is sealed. You could set it on your picnic table and it wouldn't smell. RE: smell when dumping....the sewer is full of grey water, too. Have you ever smelled grey water? It's worse than black. We've full-timed for 16 years, used only water, and no smells. We've boondocked for up to 12 days at a time....no smells. We run the fan...no smells. We stayed in hot areas....no smells. The seconds it takes to flush...no smells. All I can say is plain water works for us.

RE: Class A - Gas vs Diesel

During our 16 years of full-timing and traveling constantly - mainly in the western mountains, we saw many, many gas motorhomes in the same places as our diesel went. Yes, you can drive in the mountains with gas. You mentioned full-timing so you'll need to study the carrying capacity carefully. Remember, when you full-time you carry everything with you. It's not like going on a vacation. This also includes the car you tow. You mentioned looking at a 36-40' and before someone chimes in that you can't stay in the national parks with that size, I just wanted to let you know that yes you can. We did it successfully. Good luck in your search.

RE: Living Small..my fulltiming rules.

It appears that you 'nailed' it! Enjoy that new lifestyle. We did for 16 years.

RE: Route Suggestion Glacier NP USA to Cassiar Hwy BC

We returned via the Cassier to Glacier one season. There are many options but this is what we took: Cross at Roosville (Hwy 93) and go to Golden and to Lake Louise then north to Jasper and pick up 16 west to Prince George/Smithers/Terrace then north on the Cassier. We found it to be a very pleasant drive.

RE: Which TOADS are worth owning ?

We towed our '04 Jeep Liberty with no problems and no engine/AC issues. It gave us great fun off-roading and was a comfortable 4-seater. We sold it with 185,000 trouble-free miles on it.

RE: Black tank chemical

Here's an interesting read: https://www.dtsc.ca.gov/PublicationsForms/upload/Chemical-Toilet-Products-Advisory-for-Consumers.pdf We've found all we needed was plenty of water in the tank to eliminate odors.

RE: First time West,best route fron Grand Canyon, Yosemite etc.

You'll love 395. Since you're driving from NH you might as well see this beautiful country of ours rather than the interstates! Definitely stop in Lee Vining and take a side trip to Bodie. Enjoy.

RE: First Long Trip

It's possible to do but I wouldn't leave it around New Orleans for a year for flooding, hurricane, etc. All those states have weather issues. Why not just continue your trip for that year?
