RE: Old Fella Rally October 5-12 2015 Great Smoky Mountains

I wish I could be there, but it doesn't look like I can make it. Here's a link to our Albuquerque shindig https://tinyurl.com/nhlwy7c This link goes to a public Facebook album - no FB account needed. Enjoy!

RE: Ordred a Jayco X17Z

I love my 17Z. I haul it with empty tanks and fill the water tank on arrival. Most campgrounds have a water spigot somewhere and I carry a long hose. I use the dump station when I leave so I'm again hauling empty. I keep a strict watch on luggage to avoid going over the CC weight limit, which is posted inside the door. I also don't want to go over or even too close to the weight rating of the tow vehicle because weight = gas (not to mention brakes, engine wear, safety issues, etc.). So I bought a Nook to replace the library I used to carry. I don't bring cases of soft drinks or carry more than 2 gallons of drinking water at a time. I bought a new, lighter laptop. I don't use very many canned goods. I weigh the luggage before leaving town, each trip. But then, I'm nuts. Enjoy your trailer! And enjoy traveling light!

RE: Rest Stop vs. The Hills Have Eyes

I used to spend a lot more nights boondocking than I do right now. I had favorite off-road spots to sleep. A couple were probably on private property, but in spots worn flat by trucks. I was never hassled by owners, it was dark and private. This last trip I slept in 3 "rest areas." 2 of them were slightly noisy with idling trucks, but the other was dark and quiet. It just happened that that one had more RVs than semis. That was the only place I had a problem with a jerk! Now to be fair to the jerk, I'm pretty certain he just pulled off there because he knew he was drunk and needed a place to rest, but then he decided that hassling another RVer (not me - I love my big dog) and throwing up near her rig were a good idea! On this trip I also boondocked in a quiet parking lot and off the road at an exit. Quiet and no problems either place. I don't carry a gun when traveling (too many state lines!) but I sleep with the truck's panic button at hand. Hope that helps.
