RE: Campgrounds in or around St. Louis MO

Regarding Babler...we didn't encounter any narrow steep roads to get to the park???? If you look at the web site online and look at the campground map, the site #13-36 are for big RVs and all have electric. We easily got our 40' motorhome in the sites. Don't try for any of the others unless you have an RV under 28'. Also, on the web site, look at the photo gallery. They show the big sites.

RE: New Mexico winter suggestions

A suggestion: Head to Arizona and do your month in New Mexico on the way home. New Mexico is cold.

RE: Is Sept too late for Gacier Park

Well, you can be there the 15th and Going to the Sun closes on the 22nd. That's plenty of time to enjoy the park. I say, go for it!

RE: Full Time Year Round RV Parks/Grounds in Central Arizona?

That's a hard question. You're talking mainly of Prescott or Cottonwood. The only one I can think of that might be family-friendly is Point of Rocks RV in Prescott. I'm not sure if they have permanent yearly rates. You'd have to check with them. There are others that are 55+ age but mostly the parks are not very nice, except the national forest campgrounds. Hope you find something.

RE: Hells Canyon Jet boat tours, Idaho

x3 on Hells Gate State Park. We did not enjoy our boat ride. As stated in another post, we weren't told it was going to be an amusement park ride. We had a young kid driving and he took pleasure in doing 'S' curves constantly. It actually made me motion sick. We finally asked him to stop which fortunately, he did. If they advertised a calm ride, we would have enjoyed it. Keep in mind that in August it will be very hot but the boats have a cover over them. I mention this in helping you to choose a shaded place to park your RV and Hells Gate State Park has plenty of shade.

RE: Mid Life Crisis Or Just Ready To Live?

I think you have a terrific idea of RVing. We've met many, many single women who full-time. As noted above, check out the RVing Singles clubs. They are definitely not dating services. They are singles who just enjoy having fun. The only obstacle I see is your 16 year old son. He's probably a junior in high school which can be a difficult age. Does he have stable long-time friends? If so, that would be very hard for him to leave. One solution since you want to get out of your parent's house soon, is if you had a campground or even a kid-friendly mobile home park nearby (sometimes they let RVers stay,too), then talk to your son in-depth and explain your feelings to him and why you want to do this. If he agrees with living in an RV for two more years until he finishes school, then really try to stay in his present school district so he's not uprooted from his friends and things he's comfortable with. During school breaks perhaps both of you could take a small trip to let him understand what your future intentions will be like. I really hope this works out for you. I know that when you're on your own you'll have a lot more confidence in yourself. There are many workamper jobs out there or even volunteering at national or state parks will at least pay for your campsite and give you a feeling that you're really helping out. It can be done. Good luck to you!

RE: Break up extended trip with flights home?

x2. Take your pets with you. That's what RVers do.

RE: Campgrounds in or around St. Louis MO

Edmund Babler State Park is awesome. It's easy to get into the city. The spaces are lush with manicured grass and are very large. It's a huge park with a swimming pool, hiking trails, lots of road to ride bikes and lots of shade. Highly recommended.

RE: Pen Fed

What on earth does this have to do with RVing?

RE: Route from Yellowstone to Grand Tetons

Go straight through the park. It's the best way and doesn't require much time. This is especially true since you're staying in Coulter Bay. Have a good trip!

RE: How late in the year is to late for Monument Valley

Your idea to reverse the trip is excellent.

RE: Black tank chemicals

Agreed...you don't have to add water or chemicals immediately after dumping. Just wait until you can open the slide and then dump a bucket full of water down the toilet. We never use chemicals....just water. Also, regarding those clear plastic tank hose rinsers...you might want to watch this video. He demonstrates them using a clear tank so you can see how little these types of rinsers really help. The best rinsers are in the tank themselves. Testing Tank Flushing Systems - Video

RE: Class A comparison?

Here's a good starting point: Ratings of Most Popular Class A RVs What is that website supposed to tell us? I looked at the top two and a Itasca we're looking at. There are no reviews on any of them. Pretty poor information. Agreed...they rate Thor and Coachman as in the very top! We love our Newmar.

RE: Grand Canyon Skywalk

Best to go to South rim, then around the East side to the North Rim. All good roads. Well, that may well be, but you can't get to the Skywalk from the North Rim. Or from the east end of the GC, either. I believe Mandalay Parr was trying to say to skip the Skywalk and instead, do the South Rim or North Rim. This is exactly would I would recommend. The Skywalk is very expensive and you have a limited time to walk on it and then are shooed off. It's not even overlooking the canyon but instead - a side canyon. You'd have a greater experience by visiting the 'real' Grand Canyon in the National Park. You can stay as long as you want and get many different viewpoints. Also, definitely walk down the Bright Angel Trail if only for 1/8 mile or so. It will give you a whole new perspective on the Canyon. It's awesome!

RE: Grand Canyon Village to Moab

64 east to 89 is the way to go. We've done it a few times. No big deal.

RE: Please Suggest! Yellowstone...

We will stock our own groceries for the entire trip (hopefully) as well as fuel up before getting into the park, bring our own snacks and lunch every day, and plan for typical Colorado weather - as in you never know what could happen in the next hour! First of all you might bring a good map. West Yellowstone is in Montana, not Colorado. :) For things to do you might check out this official national park site and explore things listed on the left side, too. : Yellowstone - Plan Your Visit

RE: Utah Big 5 loop in Oct- no reservations??

Here's an excellent BLM site for camping around Moab. Moab BLM Camping I honestly don't think that you'll have any trouble with your small Class C finding spots without reservations. We have done so with our 40' motorhome. We toured the parks once again, last fall and we saw many spots open. Also, not all spots are reservable. Pull into the national parks in the morning when folks are leaving and you'll get a site. Have a good trip!

May/June in Moab will be 100 degrees or more.

RE: Campgrounds San Francisco Area

With your 45' motorhome we'd recommend Napa Valley Expo and driving to the Larkspur Ferry and taking it to Fisherman's Wharf. It's reasonable cost and a pleasant ride. We did the above and then pre-arranged with a small tour van for an all day tour of the city. Even our daughter, who lives there, was very impressed with the tour. It makes for easy siteseeing.
