RE: Your Favorite Boondocking Pics

I'm envious.

RE: Need Suggestions on San francisco visit

When you're finished touring the city (we lived in the Bay Area for 10 + years), head out to Point Reyes and enjoy the lighthouse and the shore. Closer to the city, is Stinson Beach, then head up Hwy 101 towards Mendocino.

RE: HEY we need a sticky for our TT pics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What am I missing. Tried photobucket, tried a direct link... Did you try the suggestions on this FAQ's page? Click here. Of course I did. When I use Photobucket it loses the server. I wasn't aware, I was just double checking. I use Photobucket too, but have to tweak it a little to get it to post. If I could do a print screen, I'd show you my settings.

RE: Planning Fall Trip, Idaho ?

Not a problem towing. As you can see, we tow a 35' 14k fifth wheel with no problem and we've been all over the state, all the grades including the grade into Grangeville and up over Whitebird.

RE: Planning Fall Trip, Idaho ?

Northern Idaho in the Palouse Region is also beautiful as is Winchester Lake State Park. East of there is the St. Joe River area and the Lochsa that follows the highway up over Lolo Pass then down into Montana. There is at least one campground along the Lochsa with electricity - Powell. Here is a link to Idahocampgroundreview.com with great information on Idaho campgrounds in regions of the state.

RE: Comments on Oravet

I haven't tried the Oravet, but FWIW -- For the past two or three years I've given our Shih Tzu a Pedigree DentaStix daily. He's five and at his last check up the vet absolutely raved about what good shape his teeth are in and said he's a long way from needing a dental (which is apparently unusual for a Shih Tzu his age). Genetics? DentaStix? Who knows? But he loves his "chewers" so I'll keep giving them to him. The vet said he has quite a few clients whose dogs' teeth seem to benefit from DentaStix. Thanks for the information!

RE: Planning Fall Trip, Idaho ?

What parts of Idaho are you looking to travel in? All the state parks are great to visit. The Fall is a great time to travel because there are fewer other travelers and sites are usually plenty. What was mentioned in the first reply is South Central Idaho and is beautiful. There are lots of dry campgrounds and fewer with hookups in the mountains. There is a very nice little full hookup RV park on Hwy 75 between Stanley and Clayton called Torrey's Burnt Creek Inn. It's a great place to use as a base camp to visit the historic Sunbeam Dam and the road (there at the dam) to the ghost towns of Custer, Bonanza, and the historic Gold Fork Dredge. At Sunbeam Dam is Sunbeam Hot Springs, free to use at the Salmon River's edge, just go with your suits on. Cascade Lake State Park has several campgrounds around the lake with hookups and only one has full hookups - Poison Creek. All can be reserved online or if you go midweek, chances are pretty good to get a spot. At Three Island Crossing State Park is the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center. This state park has full hookups. Bruneau Dunes State Park is at a natural sand dunes and they have an observatory that runs on a schedule. In Eastern Idaho is the Yellowstone Caldera and there resides Upper and Lower Mesa Falls. There are many campgrounds in that area with hookups. Our favorite is at Lower Mesa Falls called Grand View. Water and electric hookups and really nice. You hear the roar of the falls constantly. Visit too while in the Island Park area, Johnny Sack's Cabin, Big Springs, Henry's Lake - there's a state park here too, Harriman State Park, Quake Lake, and of course this is close to West Yellowstone. We've been all over the state and there's so much to mention. We recently traveled northern Idaho last Fall and stayed at Farragut State Park and toured it. Farragut was one of the largest inland Naval stations in the US. What a fascinating place that was and the state park for camping is fabulous. Full hookups. Definitely a return trip for us. We also stated at Hells Gate State Park in Lewiston on the Lewiston River. Nice, but not as nice as Farragut. Idaho is a large area, so you may want to pick the region you plan to visit and ask your questions again. Island Park Area Information Idaho State Parks Information Visit Idaho Guide While in the Stanley area, plan to take the Landmark Stanley Road (Middle Form of the Salmon River road)over Cape Horn Summit, down into Bruce Meadows to see the herds of elk that live there. Best time to view the elk are early in the morning or at dusk. We pack our breakfast and head over there early and sit in our truck to view the elk. It's never a boring moment. If you can handle one or two nights of dry camping, spend some time at Bull Trout Lake Campground in the Martin Lake section, you may just be rewarded with the howl of a wolf as we've been.

RE: Eternabond tape on roof laps over sealant

We applied Eternabond on our 5th wheel roof on the front and back seams and around the skylight - then the skylight got a crack so we have to climb up and take care of it.

RE: Waxed the fiver

Nice. Really nice. Ours had a mirror finish like that too last fall when we waxed it. We use Meguiar's Marine and RV One Step Compound.

RE: Extended Warranty or Not

First time out the pantry shelves with sliders flew open, contents flew out, smashed the pantry door, guess what....not their problem. Obviously none of us were there to witness this first hand so we really don't know all the details but I wouldn't automatically see this as "their problem" either, the argument being that if you had properly secured the cabinet for travel this wouldn't have happened. No doubt you don't agree but the real question is - was this a "manufacturing defect" that caused this to happen? - perhaps, but also perhaps not, in which case it may just been the result of operator error. Without further proof to the contrary it doesn't surprise me your claim was denied. The door was properly secured with the hardware provided, which was obviously totally inadequate. We added magnets to the door and burglar type chain locks to each shelf to keep them from sliding and hitting the door. In my opinion, you should not have had to do that. Our cabinet doors and shelves stay secure in route.

RE: What are your hobbies

Cocktails Lou 05 Travel Supreme Envoy X2. DW and I hardly ever drank for years. Finally at 60 I decided I'd take up drinking for a hobby. DW joined me a couple years later. Now that we are 1 month from retiring, we plan on expanding our hobby. We also like exploring in the Jeep or the Harley, which ever one we brought with us. We never mix the hobbies. I guess I have to do a X3 - we take a 12 pack of beer, a bottle of wine, and some whiskey and it's gone by the time we get home and we didn't get intoxicated. Now how did that happen?! Seriously though, I paint, read, and do word puzzles. I guess you do day trips:) Oh! Ha ha! That's a good one.

RE: Looking for more WY ideas..

Since you want to go to the Big Horn Mountains, go on down the Hwy 16 towards Greybull and take the short side trip to Red Gulch to see the Dinosaur Tracks. There's a huge turn out back there and I don't see why you couldn't boondock for a night there. When we were there, there were no signs that said no camping. If you're self contained seems it wouldn't be a problem. Also visit Devils Kitchen. The turn off is also off of Hwy 16. Worth the drive back there. It's amazing. You didn't mention Chief Joseph Pass just outside of Cody. It's a beautiful day drive, steep and winding in places, but farmers tow over it all the time and there's a campground off this road, actual several, that are nice. Can you pull a trailer down that dirt road off 14 to the Red Gulch Dinosaur Tracksite easily? If I remember correctly, yes. Both my husband and I noted that we should've towed our fifth wheel back there and spent the night. Google map it just in case - Red Gulch Dinosaur Tracksite. Don't take a chance though if there is any sign of recent rain or will be. Just as you turn off the highway on Red Gulch Rd, there is an ample spot to pull over with your trailer. You may want to confirm with BLM you can boondock overnight.

RE: Passport america

We purchased one because we knew an RV park in a certain area accepted it and would for the length of our stay. Just the savings at this one park, paid for the membership. Each park has different restriction and you can research that on their website of participants before you buy.

RE: Your Rig

I love the new Bighorn colors, but I love mine too with all the bells, whistles, and add-ons. Great quality so we are hanging onto ours for the long haul.

RE: Got bad news today

Most of the snow is gone here in the valley, but we keep having that darn flurries thing. Lots of snow, accumulation in feet, in the mountains still. This may be a wet first camping trip Memorial Day weekend and some areas in the mountains by lakes may be flooded. Hope you feel better soon. Our fiver is parked at our house, so I guess it's time for driveway overnighters!

RE: Your opinion on a quality fifth wheel (stipulations listed)

We were happy with our Big Horn manufactured by Heartland. We are also. Purchased #3 last week. #4. We bought ours in 2010 and love it still. In fact, I just went into it to check on something and it still smells new.
