RE: Laughlin, NV

With children I'd recommend Davis Campground - a County park: http://www.mcparks.com/parks/davis-camp/

RE: All The Usual Stuff?

I was thinking the parks would have a pool, shuffleboard, and maybe tennis courts (all of which I like). I think what you'll find now are pickleball courts rather than tennis courts. :) Enjoy your new sport. We certainly do!

RE: Big rig driving in Alaska

You'll have no problems with height. Semis drive it and you'll see other 43' MHs. You don't have any choices with the roads. It's either the Alaskan Hwy or the Cassier. Many folks go up on the Alaskan and return on the Cassier to try to time the bear activity at Hyder. I will say that we didn't have the stiff mud flap across the rear of the MH - only ones behind each wheel. We had absolutely no damage to the MH or towed Jeep during our whole summer trip. However, we actually saw folks in Whitehorse, Yukon removing their stiff flaps because of it throwing rocks at their toad vehicle. We saw the layer of large stones at the base of their windshields. We came through that same section previous to them so either it was because of the stiff flap or some other reason but it was strange that they had the same damage. We drove those construction sections slow and pulled over as far as we could to the right when an oncoming vehicle approached and didn't get any windshield dings. I really think that's the secret - drive slow and don't follow too closely to the one in front of you. You'll also see more critters that way!

RE: Michigan to Yellowstone, Tetons, Fort Robinson

Northern or southern Michigan? If northern, we enjoy going across the Plains via the Upper Peninsula and Hwy 2. We always avoid interstates if we can.

RE: Help getting thru Phoenix

From Globe get on the Red Mountain Hwy (202)at Ellsworth Rd. (Apache Junction) to the 101 to I-17 north to 74 west (Carefree Hwy) to Wickenburg. It's really not a bad drive if you can drive it between 9-2 - avoid rush hours and Sunday morning is even better. At Apache Jct. don't keep going on Hwy 60 to I-17 - that's where the traffic will be.... get off on the 202.

RE: camp ground near Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe bend

Here are your choices: http://www.rvparkreviews.com/regions/arizona/page We've used Lone Rock (no hookups) but from your other post it seems you'd be going to Grand Canyon North Rim during this trip and you are going in summer. It will be extremely hot in Page, AZ at that time of year. I'd suggest either Zion or Bryce instead of your remaining days in Page. Zion has some nice water play for the kids and Bryce would be cooler and hiking in the hoodoos would be great fun!

RE: Going Full-Time RVing Question

My vision is to pull up anchor any time I want and go any place “she” (motor home) will take me. Is my thinking just a fantasy and not the “true” reality of full-time rving? Not a fantasy... reality! Hope you can do it. It's a fabulous lifestyle. :)

RE: driving thru canada

We crossed at Sumas, spent a night at Hope - neat little town with large wood carvings along the street and even a Japanese Garden. Stocked with food and exchange some money and the drive up 97 was very pleasant - don't recall a big climb. You're not going to have mountains like you would have in Colorado if that's what you're worried about. Millions of RVers have driven to Alaska in all kinds of RVs - some even before the roads were paved. :) You'll do just fine. Move over the Alaska/Canada section of this forum and you'll find lots of additional good information.

RE: Grimmy Exterior Detailing Questions

Gosh! You need to start using that RV!! You might want to take it to a professional for thorough cleaning. Most likely, the inside needs it, also.

RE: Creede, CO CG recommendations needed

I booked 3 nights at Peacock Meadows in South Fork. This CG had mostly good reviews and seemed to have a little more space between sites that the others. July appears to height of the tourist season as finding a state CG with 4 night available in Colorado Springs was a PIA. I booked 3 nights at Cheyenne Mountain SP but couldn't get a 4th night so we are going to head back a day early or book one night at the KOA. Peacock appears to be a nice park with spacious sites compared to others in South Fork. It's quite new. Good find! If you have extra time, take a day trip to Pagosa Springs and soak in the warm pools for a couple hours - very relaxing overlooking the river. They're immaculate and varying temperatures.

RE: New to RV'ing

After reviewing mycamperfriend's blog, based on the link in their sig however, there is a section entitled "Product List" that explicitly states, "We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites. Amazon and the Amazon logo are trademarks of Amazon.com, Inc. or its affiliates." and while the products listed are items that the blogger has used, it does run in a grey area in that they are benefiting financially through the affiliation with Amazon and the affiliated sites. So, until I get a decision from the forum administration about this, I'm letting their post and sig stand. I don't think this blog should be allowed. He's made 12 posts in the past day.

RE: Bath and a half.

You might want to visit a Newmar forum to see how your specific RV is plumbed.

RE: Bears and garbage

... another eye roller. :) We never even thought about it. The garbage stayed in our wastecan until finding a place to dispose of it. Save up some empty coffee cans beforehand for putting really smelly stuff in before putting it in the wastecan. I really have never heard of a problem with bears getting into normal household garbage as long as you don't keep it outside and keep a clean campsite.

RE: Waco Texas to Davis Mountains State Park

You can't go wrong with either way. They're good roads. Any medium town has gas and even the small ones, although you might pay a little more. Have a great trip. It's a very nice park and be sure to take a tour at the nearby observatory. You're also not too far from Big Bend Nat'l Park for an added stop. Rio Grande Village RV has electric, if needed. March can start getting warm. Rio Grande Village campground (next door) has some nice shade trees.

RE: Places worth seeing near Mather camp groud (Grand Canyon)

If you're going to North Rim consider Zion or Bryce national parks for the rest of your time. Don't try to cram too much in that one week. Zion, try to get a campsite on the river and the kids would have fun spashing... it's 'usually' a wadeable stream - not deep, unless there happen to be monsoon rains. Also, at the end of the shuttle bus drive in a 'trail' of sorts but it's a river trail and very popular to do in summer. Water shoes and a walking stick are advisable. Again, during monsoon storms it would be closed off because it would be dangerous but other times, just fine. Bryce - temperatures would be cooler than Zion but no water play. Instead, hike down into the hoodoo formations. It's like a fairy wonderland down there. Go down 'Wall Street' trail and up another one... or up again on Wall Street to test your lungs!

RE: Orange beach Alabama ?

you might consider a stay at Bella Terra RV..... Price is VERY reasonable. For a standard site here in April for a week comes to approx. $50/night. (EDIT: Fixed the quote.)

RE: Texas Class A road test question

Personally, I think you'll do just fine if you re-take it in another town. It's not right that the tester took you in a narrow-streeted residential area - a place that you would never take a big RV and she should have known that. Believe it or not, most RVers have 'some' common sense! :)

RE: Do you budget for vacation?

I see that you could cut way down on entertainment and camp fees, if you need to do so.

RE: Jersey Shore to San Antonio to Tucson via Rt10.

For your Tucson stay you might want to try for reservations at Catalina State Park. You and the children would enjoy it. That's a lot of driving with only a few hours of sleep here and there. Be careful. Can your wife help with driving?

RE: Castroville, TX to Alpine, TX via Hwy 90

We always enjoyed Hwy 90! Go for it!!
