RE: TC Tour of Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks

Thanks you two for the report, it takes me back to 02 when I had my family out there, being among those giants is the most spiritual spot I have been outside the church walls, and on some days when the sun shines through just right even more so. It is a wonderful place, and I understand what you are saying about Yosemite being loved to death......and it is ashamed.

RE: rear end gears

another vote for 4.10's, every truck I have owned with 4.10's has gotten the same or better than the same engine with 3.55's, loaded and unloaded. all have been a cummins though.

RE: Wet baths, no, RV baths in general...

from what I have seen you have more room in a wet bath than a dry ( in truck campers). or maybe it's just mine, but my 03 Lance slide has a dry bath, I wish it was a wet bath, because there is almost no room in the shower and we are smaller people.....I didn't say limber....just small.

RE: ~Post your campsite photos here~

Gleno jones lake camp ground (Saline co. conservancy district) a nice lake and some good hiking along the ridge trail. http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/zz18/1STGENFARMBOY/73fa991e-aac7-4246-be59-69572199f197_zpsf17cd511.jpg Pounds Hallow State Park, 3 weeks ago we were the (only) campers in the entire camp ground for the 4 days we were there, that is really nice for piece and quiet, also a nice small lake along with some of the most scenic hiking in the Shawnee forest. http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/zz18/1STGENFARMBOY/98b23d24-5de1-496b-a058-e344246f9fb3_zpscc2881a3.jpg

RE: How to put kayak on top of TC

We have a 13.5 tandem Pamlico Wilderness systems, we stand it up on end the wife will hold it over a bit and I climb on top then we use the ladder as guild runners and I pull and she pushes until she cant reach, by then it's far enough for me just to pull on up, I use the foam pad kayak things you can get and use motorcycle tie downs to secure it, it works well......our kayak weighs 75lb empty and probably 90 with the add on things we have, I have a splash deck, paddle holders, both paddles, life vests, pump, and some other small things.

RE: New Camper Hauler

Setting up an old truck/camper unit is the only thing that would make me sell my current rig, I think they so much cooler than laying down $60-100k on new stuff. I love any make from the 70's down, but something in the 60's would be my pick. that truck is in really nice condition, and is going to look sweet. I will promise you won't be able to fuel up with out someone walking over to take a look at it. Dar

RE: TC travels, Az, Hawaii, Nova Scotia, * 2013 TR, Pg 531

We moved back to our level night camp... about half way between highway traffic along US-60 and the barge traffic. http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c35/glasscrew/2013%20October%20travels/Chet%20TX%209/DSC08108.jpg hope you don't mind "barging" in to your report Mr. Chet, but we pulled in to St Albans on your advice and was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was, we had a nice walk down the river and a nice nights stay, thanks again and we will be there again on our next trip east.

RE: Camping in the rain

We knew September on the BRPW would be risky, but like you said it's nice to just snuggle in and listen to it rain, luckily only 2 days of rain in 18, but those rainy super fogy nights when we took our last stroll around the CG before bed were very spooky. http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/zz18/1STGENFARMBOY/Shenandoah%20and%20BRPW%20trip/P9050797.jpg

RE: Slideouts: Benefits and drawbacks

I would not miss my slide, the little bit of extra room is just not worth the weight and the worry of having it.

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

Last night I installed a deep aluminum trans pan in hopes of cooling my trans fluid a bit more in hard pulls, and gave it a fresh drink of Rotella and filter, gave the engine and underneath a good wash to get rid of winter, gotta keep these old dodges clean or you can go out and there will be 4 tires sitting in a pile of rust. very much looking forward to camping time.

RE: Diesel Question for truck campers

While I do believe having a diesel to haul your truck camper is the best option, I think you would be foolish to expect large savings in owning one. when the gas trucks had 200 or so HP and netted a cool 6-7 mpg pulling/hauling a load and the repair/fuel cost of a diesel was the same or less than a gas truck then it was a no brainer, but with the higher cost of fuel and the astronomical cost of repair on modern diesels and the higher HP of todays gas trucks it is a strait up wash. some of us (NEED) a diesel, some want one, in reality some of us could do just fine with a gas truck, no question some of todays gas trucks will do the job where trucks of the mid 90's just wouldn't do it, this is why I got into diesel trucks to begin with, my 96 2500 chevy literally would not pull my gooseneck loaded, and fuel was .40 cents cheaper than gas......well until I signed the papers then it jumped .50 cents over night. Of course I say all of this living in flatsville USA ILL, and I bet some of you guys that pull out of your drive way and instantly need to pull an 8% grade are thinking ( no way will a gas truck work for me).

RE: Yosemite visit

The falls should be awesome at that time with the snow this year.

RE: Pigeon Forge TN

spend your stay in the N.P., it will rejuvenate your spirit, and you will still have all that money in your pocket. X2 on Huck Finns and the pancake house.
