RE: Eagles Nest to Red River, Nm

From the 'Mountain Directory for Truckers and RVers' (highly recommended that you puchase this if traveling in the West), it states "Northbound descent from Eagle Nest is 4 miles of mostly 7-8%. There are 30 and 35 mph curves and continues to the edge of Red River". I recall doing it with our 40' motorhome with no issues. Have a great trip and enjoy your new lifestyle.

RE: Yellowstone July 2016

Here's the official Yellowstone site and it has a good list of things to do: Yellowstone Nat'l Park Grand Teton has a similar site, as do all the national parks. Grand Teton Nat'l Park Colter Bay RV has the full hookups. The campground is right next door - no hookups but nice. Personally, we like Gros Ventre campground (no hookups) the best. It has beautiful views is close to nice hiking, has animals cruising through and is closer to Jackson for doing things there, including major groceries just south of town. Definitely take a gentle float trip down the Snake River in the Tetons. You just might see a moose in the water along with you! We did.

RE: Please please- Do you know this place

I agree with others - Ruidoso, NM is the coolest, closest place from central Texas...not sure of the golf course though...better check. We're not golfers.

RE: Suggest a winter destination that might still have openings

What do you want in the way of amenities? What is your price range? All you need to do is to select where you want to go, Google for RV parks and start calling. There are thousands of RV parks out there! No one can really tell you if they have openings or not. You might also look on RV Park Reviews site for what others think of the parks once you have an area nailed down. Good luck...it's still early so you'll find what you want.

RE: Leaving trailer plug in when at home.

Think about full-time RVers. If they use RV parks it's plugged in every single day of the year for many years. :) Go for it!

RE: route

This is 417 miles: 191 south to Mexican Water, AZ. West on 160 to Tuba City, AZ. South on 89 to Flagstaff, AZ. South on I-17 to Exit 278 at 169. West on 169 to 69 to Prescott. We've driven this route with our 40' motorhome. Have a good trip. Not sure why there would be delays in Cameron, AZ on Hwy 89 unless you stopped for lunch at Cameron Trading Post....excellent Navajo Tacos!

RE: Mail Hold--What do you do?

Nowadays, why do you need your mail? Set up your bills with AutoPay and you never have to think about them.

RE: Speeding in campgrounds

You don't speed in national parks. First time is a warning. Continue and you're out. Same goes for driving the wrong direction on one-way roads in campgrounds. As volunteers in these parks we've witnessed some near-misses. Why do folks have to rush back to their campsite?

RE: What is a reasonable maintenance wait time

I would suggest that after you have things fixed - again, that you sell it and go with a better manufacturer. That sounds like a nightmare.

RE: I-10 California to Florida.

Other routes than I-10? There are multiple secondary roads to take. That's what we've always done. You see a lot more. For Louisiana, I don't recall the road number but it parallels I-10 just to the north. It goes through wonderful Cajun towns, including Eunice which is a MUST stop. Wonderful music and food and fun people.

RE: Idaho 75 from Challis to Sun Valley

The drive is definitely o.k. for RVers. You'll see many as you drive. You'll just be taking it slow. There are no issues for the road. From Challis to Sun Valley you will be going down, not up. I hope you're planning on some time in Stanley and the Sawtooths.

RE: Boondocking communities other than Q and Slabs?

No, I'm not kidding. :) Scadden Wash is a huge area. If you get off I-10 at Exit 19, turn south and get on the south frontage road. Scadden runs all along that frontage road. You'll come to a deadend and you could turn right onto the gravel road and you'll see RVers for miles. For your purpose of getting to the grocery on a bike, park at the farthest west spot as soon as you get to the frontage road for the shortest trip into town. There are two groceries in Q. The closest to you would be around the intersection of I-10/Exit 19 and north a little. Here are sites that gives information on Q along with other BLM spots in the area. There are many more if you Google Quartzsite. Quartzsite Information More On Quartzsite

RE: Question About Hwy 101 in Oregon

Hwy 101 north from San Francisco and as far north as the Olympic Peninsula in Washington is a big traveling route for RVers. There are no issues for the biggest of RVs. The tunnel is just fine. Many times when you use that trucker's atlas you'll find that semi trucks aren't allowed in certain areas or along certain roads because of city/county ordinances. That's why they may be marked as such and why you'll sometimes see a sign 'Truck Route' directing them off the main route. That doesn't apply to RVs. We've driven our 40' motorhome on many secondary roads and never used the trucker's atlas.

RE: yellowstone

Fishing Bridge is the best place to stay for touring the park. It's the only full hookup in the park if that's what you need. We've seen a lot of parks throughout the country that are a LOT worse than Fishing Bridge. You'll be out touring all day anyway.

RE: RV Parks in the San Francisco area

Napa Valley Expo is a nice one to stay. Then drive your car to the Larkspur Ferry Landing on the north side of the bay and it will take you right into the city. When you get off you can get on the pre-arranged small van tour which is an awesome way to see the city and a pleasant ferry ride past Alcatraz. Even our daughter who lives in the city was impressed with the city tour. We've also stayed at the Santa Rose fairgrounds for an easy drive in. It's a LOT cheaper than $75/night at other parks. We'd never pay that for a campsite.

RE: Electric only sites

In Michigan State Parks and most state parks and national parks you will find the tank water fill in a separate area at the dump station. Do not use the water hose at the dump itself. Be sure you use the potable water and it's marked as such. If you ever encounter parks without a dump station then that's where you will need to use a water thief or fill containers from the scattered faucets in the park.

RE: Suggested border crossing?

We made easy crossings at Sumas, Washington. Google for Canadian border crossings before your trip to make sure of the hours. They aren't open 24 hours.

RE: heading to Chama Peak, Co, where to boondock

I'm not worried about rough trails as long as my camper fits, also don't know if there are endangered vegetations or things like that to watch out for. How can I find out what lands are private? You don't want to be driving on any vegetation - endangered or not. Make a stop at the local national forest ranger station and ask where you can boondock or use one of their campgrounds. Yes, there are cougars in the area. If you'd have to use a knife I think it would be too late for you. Think positive.
