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: washing 5th wheel. need help

We use this and let it drip and dry. It ends up beautiful and shiny.

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.

RE: Need Advice - Suggestions for Glacier, Mt Rushmore etc

Great advice agesilaus. As for places to stay - GNP - Mountain Meadows or any of the KOA's, West or East. We stayed a few days at North American RV park because they are a Passport America park and it saved us some money. Stop at all the sites within the park and of course, do the Going to the Sun road and the hike from Logan Pass Visitor Center. If you can, continue on returning through Hwy 2 around the park and stop at Goat Lick. I agree on LBH - we purchased an audio tour in advance and drove through while listening to it. We stayed over at a KOA near there, took the tour in less than a few hours, then left the next morning. For Mt. Rushmore - We stayed at Mt. Rushmore KOA when we visited. At that time it was beautifully wooded. We also visited Jewell Cave, Rushmore Cave, and drove the Needles hwy. There is a cave to drive through and we had a 99 F250 SRW and we fit with the mirrors in. Definitely visit Devil's Tower and take the hike around it. There is also a KOA there. For Yellowstone and GTNP - Colter Bay RV is a nice option. It's between Jackson and YNP off the Rockefeller Highway. In GTNP - Visit Menoir's Ferry, Mormon Row, Drive the Scenic Loop, go to the top of Signal Mt, visit the visitor's center in Moose, and Chapel of the Transfiguration. For Yellowstone, there's a lot to do there. If you need hookups in the park - go to Fishing Bridge. If you want to stay outside the park, there still Colter Bay or stay in West Yellowstone - Grizzly RV is nice. We prefer Baker's Hold FSCG. Most of the sites have electricity and you can fill up water at the entrance. It's 2 miles north of West Yellowstone. There's a KOA in West Yellowstone but it's about 5 miles West. If you enter Yellowstone from the East, from Cody. There are nice RV parks in Cody along with a KOA. Visit the Buffalo Bill Cody Museum. Well worth the stop. That's a full day's visit or two. Between Cody and the East Entrance is Buffalo Bill Cody state park and some sites have electricity and water. They take reservations too. If you plan to stay in Cody, take the Chief Joseph scenic byway. Then while in Yellowstone take the Bear Tooth highway tour, both with your TT back at camp. I'm sure I'm missing a lot, but that's all I can think of right now.

RE: Best place to buy travel traler in Intermountain west

I highly recommend Nelson's RV in Boise, Idaho. We've purchased 4 of the 5 we've had from them. Great service from sales to maintenance and in between.

RE: Yellowstone and Grand Teton from Denver

We've towed over the Bighorns, but there are two routes to the top of Burgess Junction and one is recommended over the other - 14 through Shell Canyon is better than Alt 14 to Lovell.

RE: Help me choose boondocking/national park TT

F-250 is a 2012, 6.2 V-8 gasser, 3.73 gears. 10,000 GVWR with 7200 dry weight on full tank of gas. 12,200 tow rating. I haven't heard of KZ. I'll do more research. Also hoping to pick up a 2012-2016 to avoid at least some of the depreciation so the more models that make my short list, the more likely I am to find one used within 250-500 miles. I really like the floorplan of the Arctic Fox 24Y but it's 30' and I really think my target is 24-26'. 20' might be short even for wife and I. She doesn't like the fold down beds that most shorter TT's have. I looked at Murphy models but you lose the passthrough storage although as long as I stick with a TT, I have tons of storage in the bed of my truck (8' full bed). Definitely better towing capacity than our '99.

RE: Banff National park this summer?

crosscheck - good points. I like No. 3 since we've been up there and may just follow that advice. We're planning on September and dry camping since we are well equipped for that.

RE: Help me choose boondocking/national park TT

Depends on the year of your F250 gasser if any size is no issue. We had a 99 F250 6.8L gasser with a 4.3 RAR and we towed a 32' Komfort comfortably, but not the current fifth wheel we have, hence up to the F350 diesel.

RE: What insurance do you like for your RV/Travel Trailer

AllState. Primary insurance is on the car and truck, and additional rider for the trailer. Same here and they have never let us down. In addition to Allstate, we have Good Sam Platinum for Roadside Assistance.

RE: Yellowstone and Grand Teton from Denver

Just a few thoughts - late May is still early for the Rockies, so do some touring around Denver before heading to Yellowstone and the Tetons. Even with that said, it may be early for Rocky Mountain National Park, but definitely try. Visit Cripple Creek, Pikes Peak, and Garden of the Gods at least, which are all in the Colorado Springs area. Again for Cripple Creek, it is pretty high in elevation, so it may be out, but a must see and there is a railroad trip you can take from there. If you take 25 to 26, through Cheyenne, Riverton, and Dubois, you'll go over the Togwothee pass, which is beautiful with a great campground on the pass, Falls, with a loop with electricity and will fit most any RV. Again, you'll have to check if it's open, but there's a KOA in Dubois too. You could take 25 to 26 to 20 and up through Thermopolis and visit the hot springs. Very interesting area and very geological! Road signs every part of the way indicating Mesozoic era, etc. There's a nice KOA in Graybull, then you can go from there on 14 to Cody and in the back side of Yellowstone. There are many FS campgrounds on 14. Rex Hale CG has some sites with electricity if you need and after you leave Cody there is Buffalo Bill State Park and one of the loops has water and electricity. When we've stayed there we opted out of E and W and stayed in the lower loop because we have solar and plenty of water on board. Then down through the Tetons. Be sure to stop at the Pahaska Teepee Resort and Restaurant. They have great food and Blueberry Saddle Blankets (that's what they call their pancakes)! This is between Cody, WY, and the East Entrance. Knowing the Hwy's and using this as a guide, you can use Google Maps to view the routes and zooming in, CGs will appear, then you can research them. Hope this helps.

RE: Silicone baking pans

For a casserole size you will need a cookie sheet under it for support. You'll end up with just as much room taken up as you would a glass baking dish or corning ware. Throw away foil makes clean up easy. Good point! Because silicone is so flimsy and worse when full, it has to be on a cookie sheet. So now instead of just an oven safe dish, you have to have an extra one for support.
