RE: Nogales, MX safe to visit

People go to Nogales daily from Arizona. Many, many have dental work done there. If you stay just across the border you'll be perfectly safe and that's where the shops and restaurants are. There's no need to wander farther in - that's the residential area. That's the same as any border town. You can easily park on the Arizona side and walk across the border. You'll be walking with other American tourists. Talk to them as you walk to get hints on where to eat, etc. Chances are they've been there often. The above-mentioned 'war zone' is not happening at the border. Why would the druggies, etc. be right there? They don't like to mingle with the Border Patrol! :)

RE: Grand Teton and Yellowstone, best roads.

This site might help on the routes around the parks: http://www.rvtechmag.com/travel/4_yellowstonebyrv.php Also, here's the park's official web site with lots of good reading on every topic for the park. Note that there are 'scheduled' times of spring openings for the roads. These are not definitely times - depends on the weather. You said you'll be there mid-May so check this out: https://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/parkroads.htm

Expand your horizons. There's plenty of other awesome places out there to explore.

RE: The Roll Call Alaska thread

That would get equally or even more confusing. Only one is needed. I don't think the post is meant only for saying 'exactly' when you're going. It's meant for information. The good information is stated all through the one post. Breaking it up will do absolutely nothing. Questions would be asked over and over again (more so than now). Things change along a trip. Folks might stay at a place longer or shorter. There's no difinites where they'd be in July.

RE: 89A from Sedona to Prescott?

It might be too late to edit your subject line to 'no RV'. Agreed, you'll be just fine in your vehicle. It's a beautiful drive. You could drive it one way and return another very easy way by taking I-17 south to Exit 278 (Hwy 169) taking you into Dewey and on to Prescott. This would be faster.

RE: How many days for Yellowstone

Thanks Matt, Sounds like a good plan, and I definitely want to dry camp at some nice wooded campgrounds. I've heard FB is just a parking lot, so I'm only staying there 3 days. Fishing Bridge has trees. I've seen worse private RV parks throughout the country with no trees. http://www.yellowstone.co/maps/fishingbridge.htm http://www.yellowstonenationalparklodges.com/lodging/camping/fishing-bridge-rv-park/

RE: 10 days in Colorado in June

Why only 10 days? Are you limited on time or are you retired and free to stay longer?
2gypsies 03/26/17 08:31pm RV Parks, Campgrounds and Attractions

Here's some good information on the subject... and many more subjects for the park on the park's web site. Explore this site thoroughly for lots of good information. https://www.nps.gov/romo/learn/news/pr_when_visiting_rocky_-plan_ahead_for_a_more_enjoyable_visit.htm

RE: First Time Across Country to Grand Canyon

Keep in mind how many trips like this you will be able to do with your now 11 & 14 year olds. If you're not going to have many chances to see the awesome national parks of the West, then take the little time you have and just do it! Seeing one or two rather than not seeing any at all is a no-brainer for us. Like I said before you're young and the kids are good traveling ages. Only you know how your family will do on long driving days. I hope you'll be able to help drive though. That would be a big plus. Have a good trip! :)

RE: Full Time, Selling Everything

Our experience in hanging out with full-timers for the past 16 years is that 95 percent of them sold the house and everything in it and had no regrets. If you're really serious about full-timing and not just going to 'try it out' (which takes longer than a year or two to really know), then you'll most likely, if and when you quit full-timing, want a much smaller place to live and possibly in a more pleasant location. As stated, storage fees really add up. You'd be surprised at how little you really need to live comfortably. Your taste in furniture will probably change and appliances and electronics become outdated. Invest the money from the sale and you'll be ready to start new. If you decide to move to a 55+ community you will find that a majority of homes will sell completely furnished down to towels and kitchen stuff. You won't have to buy a thing.

RE: DW may be losing it

First she forgot to tell me to take the wheal chocks out. Then she forgot to tell me to unplug the electric line. On top of that she forgot to jump in the truck before I pulled out. Are you sure you're telling this story correctly? 'SHE' forgot to tell 'YOU' to remove the chocks and to unplug the electric and then 'YOU' drove off without her? It seems like those were all your things YOU should have remembered!!! :p

RE: Oregon Coast vacation

Here's the 'average' weather for Newport, Oregon for May. By the way, there will be some sunny days. We had them. :) https://weatherspark.com/averages/31147/5/Newport-Oregon-United-States

RE: quick question

I don't think this post was asking about the tree fee. I think he was asking if anyone thinks there's a correlation of having a motorhome parked in the driveway to people thinking you have a lot of money which isn't necessarily true.

RE: I guess I don't understand Good Sam

That 'membership card' you recently got asking you to sign up for roadside insurance is just their form of advertising. That card doesn't mean a thing. It's not real.

RE: AZ 260 to 87 to I 40.

Definitely take your planned route of 260/87 to I-40. Once you make it up to 87 it's a super easy drive.

RE: Oregon Coast vacation

101 north is a very pleasant drive. We did it multiple times with our 40' motorhome. People get confused with the coastal Hwy 1 and 101. They're two different roads. 101 is the one you want. Your first stop could be Ancient Redwoods RV right in the heart of the big trees. Within a short distance are some very nice short, easy hiking trails amidst the big ones... very pretty area. For Oregon I'd suggest making 3 stops of how many days you have available. Stop in the south, midway and the north. Then you can easily tour the surrounding areas. We love Cape Blanco State Park and they don't take reservations. Plan to pull in around 2pm if you can (or earlier) and you'll get a site. With our 40' MH we've also stayed at these state parks: Bullards Beach, Beverly Beach, Carl Washburne, Harris Beach and Fort Stevens on the north end. We love the state parks and since we had no schedule or time limits we pulled into them around noon and got sites without reservations - spring, summer, fall. Naturally, if you're on a timeframe that won't work for you but do try for Cape Blanco with no reservations. The beach is lovely with no people. The lighthouse tour is great. The sites are big.

RE: Sedona Pines

If you really want to stay there it wouldn't hurt to stop and ask if the lots are rented out when the owners aren't there. Many like this do rent the lots.
