RE: Flush black tank after one weekend?

Keep in mind that if you're in a RV park with electric, they'll frown on you using the generator. :)

RE: Spending a month in Gulf Shores, AL

Gulf State Park - nice sites and full hookups. Good price and snowbirds can spend the whole season there.

RE: Digital Photos--How do you organize them?

All of our pictures are finely edited using Photo Shop. Thousands have been tossed. We only keep the best of each area. We arrange by state and place - no dates. We have a screen saver on the computer so we view each state in sequence, changing the state every couple weeks. It's always running so every time we walk by we'll sit a spell and review memories. We were full-timers for 16 years and traveled constantly and repeated places often so you can imagine that it would be a nightmare if we saved every single one! We sometimes wonder if all the folks we see snapping pic after pic with a ton of strangers in the background, really go back and look at those pictures. :)

RE: Big Bend Area RV Park Recommendations

I would highly recommend staying at Rio Grande Village in the park itself. You have a choice of full hookups or dry camping. We always did dry camping with our 40' motorhome because the sites are more pleasant and bigger. The campground and RV park are right by each other. It's an absolutely gorgeous spot with trees and water. One of our times there was in November and the cottonwoods were turning their beautiful yellow fall color...against the bright blue sky it was breathtaking!

RE: Packing the kitchen

Do a test-drive at home. Take a one-month period or whatever timeframe you have before taking off and keep all dishes/pots, etc. on the counter that you've used in that one month's time. That will give you a feel of how YOU cook and use your kitchen. Corelle is highly recommended. Keep in mind that you just might have visitors at some time so plan for perhaps 4 people. A 2 qt. casserole dish would work for potlucks if you're invited to one. It can also be used to cook a roast or chicken, etc. We loved our convection oven and it will cook anything just like a regular oven so experiment with it. I'd take a 9x13 and 8" square baking pan for desserts, brownies. A cookie sheet, too - even for a treat of a warm fresh chocolate chip cookie made from a refrigerated dept. Pillsbury cookie dough. You'd impress a guest! Extra silverware doesn't take up much room otherwise you'll find yourself always washing dishes and using that precious water if you dry camp. If you have the room a hand mixer, toaster, coffee pot and crockpot would be the only appliances you'd really need. Again, you'll just have to tailor it according to YOUR needs and how YOU cook. Everyone is different.

RE: Fire Alarm Sensitivity

Another thing that works is to purchase one of those old-time bowl covers with elastic around the edges. Dollar stores sometimes handle them. It's easy to slip over the smoke alarm. Just remember to take it off when leaving for the day or at night.

RE: Is a tow capacity of 6,200-6,500 enough?

This forum has two sections that would probably be of help: Travel Trailers and Tow Vehicles. You'd be able to get a feel what other travel trailer owners use as their vehicles. Good luck.

RE: Looking for working water hookups in late Oct. or early Nov.

Agree...in cold temps don't leave the water hose out all night - fill your tank and store it. This also is true for your sewer hose...dump and put it away. There's nothing worse that trying to leave in the morning with frozen hoses. Plus, the sewer hose will likely break handling it while frozen.

RE: Route into Yellowstone

From Robesonia, PA to Madison campground in Yellowstone there are two direct routes: 1. I-39 Wisconsin to I-94 to Billings, MT to I-90 to Livingston, MT to 89 south through Yellowstone to Madison. This is 4-1/2 days @8 hr/day for 2160 miles. 2. I-90 across MN and SD to Cody, Wyoming coming in from the east entrance to Madison campground. This is 4-1/2 days @8hr/day for 2120 miles. I-90 is a more pleasant drive than I-80. Of course, there are many other routes depending if you want to stop any particular place along the way. I would highly recommend you also stay at least a few nights in Grand Teton Nat'l Park, also. It is completely different from Yellowstone...perhaps doing it on your return.

RE: Trip planning input / help request

First, I would suggest leaving the dogs home for this trip. If you're visiting national parks they aren't allowed on any trails, including the boardwalks in Yellowstone that you need to do to see the wonderfull geysers, paint pots, etc. Secondly, If you drive 8 hours a day it will take you 3-1/2 days each way. That's 7 days of solid driving. You've got approx. 1650 miles one way. To get to Yellowstone the best way from western Tennessee will give your first stop just east of Kansas City on I-70. Then Lexington, Nebraska on I-80, then a stop around Lander, Wyoming on Hwy 287. Then take Hwy 26 into Grand Teton National Park - a must stop for at least 2 nights. Stay at Colter Bay RV or campground. They are right next to each other. Then go to West Yellowstone for your stay to tour Yellowstone and I'd allow at least 3-5 nights. So that takes up your 2 weeks. Fishing Bridge in the park is an ideal spot but you couldn't let the dogs in the RV all day while you're touring and you'll be limited as to where you walk while touring if you take them with you. There's no reason to go through Salt Lake City. With the 2 weeks you really don't have time for doing any major stops on the way home.

RE: Road Atlas

. . .BENCHMARK Maps. . .On AMAZON. . .Shows all the info you need including Camping!!!!! I have them for all the Western states; they also have Apps if you need that. . . GOOD STUFF!!!! Totally agree! We started out full-timing using the Delorme Gazeteers for individual states but they can't compare to Benchmark. We, too, have them for all the western states because we spend so much time in each state.

RE: Picacho Peak Az

Here's an interesting article for those poo-pooing the dust storms. We've been in them as a first-hand experience - not good. Arizona's Deadliest Corridor

RE: Arizona State Park camping fees

Excellent 'toedtoes'! We've volunteered in many public parks. It's an eye-opener as to where the money goes and what is needed. Folks want 'it' but don't want to pay for 'it'.

RE: Anyone regret full-timing?

16 years and absolutely no regrets. :)

RE: rear rad vs side rad

On our all summer trip to Alaska we talked to owners with issues with rear radiators - dust, rocks, etc. We had a side radiator and had no problems.

RE: Full body vinyl wrap

I think he's talking about storage because he said "full vinyl wrap". Hopes he comes back to confirm.

RE: Privacy issues with Good Sam Club

Perhaps a little off topic but whenever we sign up for anything - clubs, magazines, etc. or order anything via the internet, we always specify "do not put us on any mailing list and don't sell our name to others". Surprisingly, this works. In 16 years of full-timing we never received any junk mail or unwanted catalogs or credit card applications. This included Good Sam. It can be done!

RE: permanent rv sites

Don't you want to see some of this beautiful country? Why would you want to get a permanent site right off the bat. Try out some areas - every place is different.

RE: wheels on towed vehical not following in a turn

If the tires are not turning you'll notice excessive wear on them. Has this happened?
