RE: What is the best NP camping experience?

We enjoy Gros Ventre campground in Teton Nat'l Park and Mammoth campground in Yellowstone.

RE: Bryce Canyon - North or Sunset

There were quite a few sites in North for our 40'.

Our 40' motorhome and Jeep fit but don't recall what site.

RE: Lesson Learned!!

Once our next door neighbor left for a day of siteseeing. Late in the day we noticed water running underneath their RV. We went over & turned off their outside water. When they retuned home after dark we met them in the driveway and explained the water issue. They went inside and found the floors saturated but couldn't see a source immediately. They asked us to turn the water back on outside. When we did they found the kitchen faucet running. They had two cats and suspected that they were the culprits of turning the faucet on. The grey water tank had filled and backed up into the shower overflowing to the floor.

RE: Alaska propane

The drive to Alaska isn't a hardship as it was many years ago! :) You will have all the conveniences. However, they will be spaced farther apart than you might be used to. For instance on fuel - drive on the top half of your tank and fill when you see it. Don't think you'll be shopping for prices like you can do in the lower 48. The same for propane. Fill before you get close to empty.

RE: Looking to get out of Florida

I must say, I would not hesitate to move out of Florida but the DW is still working and we have grandkids locally. In others words, that won't happen. If you all can provide some ideas I can look on RvParkReviews.com and if they appeal to me, I would not hesitate to drive up and check them out. So... your wife won't move. Are you going alone? :)

RE: 1st time Snowbirders - leave home or pack?

When we began years ago we were in Texas and had lots of humidity in the RV. We moved on to Arizona for our first time and went into a Home Depot looking for a dehumidifier. Arizona sells humidifiers but not DEhumidifiers.

RE: cookware and dishes

This will be your home. Bring what you are used to using.

RE: The Quest for My Perfect Camper

You stated you'll be living in this for extended periods. Will you be in cold temperatures? Double pane windows will really help with cold and heat. Is the underbelly enclosed to keep the piping from freezing? You're looking at small RVs. You might want to eyeball the amount of stuff you'll be taking with you to make sure everything will fit and won't overload the trailer. An outside kitchen takes up a lot of storage space and you can easily just put a camp stove on a table and have your kitchen. What will you be towing with? If you plan to do remodeling, i.e., taking out the bed... make sure there's nothing important under that bed. Sometimes the water tank would be there.

RE: Newbie boondocker seeks LTVA with internet

In many cases in Arizona the 14-days BLM areas are right next to the long-term areas.... same cell service which is more likely - good... at least that's what we found our with Verizon.

RE: Flagstaff to Florida in the Winter?!

Don't start out on I-40. Drop down to Tucson and I-10 then start your trip. You'll have a much better chance for good weather.

RE: National Park Trip

In our opinion you don't need reservations a year in advance if you're capable of staying in campgrounds with no hookups. Also, in some of the national parks there are campgrounds that don't even take reservations. We've never been without a place to stay!

RE: Thanksgiving in Arizona or Southern Utah

Although the greater Phoenix area is huge it's the easiest big city to get around, in our opinion. Naturally, you don't drive during 'rush' hours. Every one of the Maricopa County parks is awesome with great views and hiking. Lost Dutchman State Park at the far eastern side is equally awesome. I'd have no qualms about staying in the area. After our last trip to Sedona this year we vowed never to return. It has become much too touristy and talk about traffic. Yikes!

RE: New RV Texas Registration

When you go to Livingston be sure to stay at the Escapee RV park and take a tour of the huge mail forwarding service. It's like a post office with comparable equipment.

RE: Why campgrounds have gates.

I have pulled up a short distance from someone clearly packing to leave and waited for their site on occasions. My wife may have even sat at their table. I've also helped someone pack so I could get their site. But I would never park in front of them. Nor "Hassle" them about leaving time at least not till, Well at the two parks I stay at check out is NOON so long about 1pm I might get upset if I was waiting for a site. You wouldn't park in front of them but then you'd go and help them pack and sit at the table? What's the difference? This is definitely a "thumbs down" attitude on your part.:h

RE: Newbie boondocker seeks LTVA with internet

Quartzsite BLM areas have excellent cell service even without 'boosters'.

RE: Thanksgiving in Arizona or Southern Utah

You will have cold weather in northern AZ or southern Utah. Even Sedona will be cold. Roosevelt Lake would be nice weather but full hookups... I'm not sure if Windy Hill national forest campground has full hookups. The others on the lake don't have hookups. What about Havasu City, AZ? Or, as mentioned, Lake Pleasant Regional Park? Or any of the Maricopa County parks in the greater Phoenix area are excellent. Get reservations for that weekend... popular places on holidays.

RE: Denver to Yellowstone

What do you mean by 'dry camp'? Is that parking without water and power hookups? I assumed we would be on our own the whole time. But that begs the question, what is the endurance of a black water tank (13 gallons?), in days, for a family of 4? My wife is never a fan of pit latrines, and the later it gets in the season, the more I am inclined to agree with her. Yes, dry camping is parking on a RV site with no hookups (water, electric, sewer). The dry campground in the Tetons have flush toilets. For 4 people and a 13 gal. black tank, I'd suggest everyone use the flush toilets when convenient except during the night. You'll be touring mostly all day anyway so you won't even be in the RV to use it. You'll be using flush toilets as you sitesee. If you're only staying a couple nights you'll have plenty of room in your black tank. The campgrounds will have dump stations so dump when you leave and you'll be ready for your next stop.
