RE: Gatlinburg

I've sent a PM to Going My Way who helped host the last SE Truck Camper Rally near Gatlinburg. It was at Smoky Bear Campground in nearby Sevierville TN. Haven't heard back yet.

RE: Moab - Thanksgiving trip ; New Video

Literally a breath of fresh air! I really enjoyed watching the dogs roaming happily about. Reminded me of our bob tailed Aussie, Hula the Wonder Dog.

RE: Roaming the Eastern Sierra Nevada Caldera

Jefe, I sure enjoy your trip reports. I also would like to join you for a meal. You described a "breakfast of homemade yogurt, berries, turkey sausage, raisin bagels and creme cheese we had to investigate". Followed by organic, free range coffee?

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Hey Garry, you sure do the long haul. Still improving the truck after 5 years??? You posted on this string the same day it started, 5/11/11. And you're still here. Actually many folks are here from the early days, including Ticki2 who also posted on that first day. Followed soon by 69cayo. Keep on truckin....

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Oh BTW anyone have advice on how to get that rooftop antenna off? There seems to be a setscrew on the handle inside but it may be stripped or something. Could try drilling it out. The antenna is in good shape if anyone is interested I will save it. I think you are talking about an aftermarket antenna? My Avion C10 has a n exterior mount for an antenna on the left side of the back. It is controlled by a handle inside the closet. Unfortunately, I have neither the mast nor the antenna...

Garry, I have no doubt you'll "get er done". Looking forward to your trip report.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Dick, looks like Muley Point is coming into view. Congrats! We've all batted around the polish/wrap/paint issue for quite a while. I did not know the wrap would be defeated by rivets. I think you should seek a few more opinions to make sure. As to paint, I am drawn to the light, powdery, greens of Toyota and Honda with some shine/sparkle. I think those colors are in line with the original aesthetic of the coach. Light greens also pair well with the original Avion red. Then there's the color of the Big Bad Truck.........

RE: Summer camping in Idahome picture portfolio, and getting old

Dave, you aren't just reporting from another world. But, another dimension seldom traveled. Thanks for sharing your journey.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

We attached "cleats" around the base of the wall where it attaches to the bustle. It allowed us to fasten from the side as well as above depending on clearances.

RE: The Old Avion is heading for the Dakotas - advice?

We're camped tonight at Custer State Park, S.D. The weather has been spectacular with cobalt blue skies, 70 degrees during the day and light winds. It's on the edge of Fall with bright yellow leaves mixed with ruddy reds. We go to the buffalo round up at dawn tomorrow. What a sight that will be with whooping Cowboys and thousands of lumbering Bison...clouds of dust in the morning sun!

RE: Thanksgiving in Anchorage in a Truck Camper 2.0

The other option, Garry, is Muley Point. Here's hoping for a great Thanksgiving to you all.

RE: The Old Avion is heading for the Dakotas - advice?

Jim, thanks for the "good luck" on the tire repair. I'm not going to ask you how you know I needed good luck. Yes, the tire tore out the back wheel well and yes, it took us the rest of the day to go to town and buy a new tire because yes, the spare was jammed from the damage to the wheel well and yes, our running lights are knocked out. But no, we are not worried. It's dawn and when the sun comes up and I can drive without running lights (careful with my lack of turning lights and brake lights) we'll be in the driveway of the nearest rv repair shop. Jane has taken Hula the Wonder Dog on some long walks, and I have been careful not to raid the fridge for adult beverages. Otherwise I'd be blotto at this stage of things.

RE: The Old Avion is heading for the Dakotas - advice?

Heh. We're on the side of the road with a blow out so Jane took Hula for a long walk. Beautiful fall day with the Illinois harvest going full blast on a Sunday. Amazingly road service is on its way within minutes. If we don't have issues dropping the spare tire, we'll be on our way shortly, it appears. Of course there's many a slip between the cup and the lip. So, we'll see.

RE: The Old Avion is heading for the Dakotas - advice?

Well, it look like Jane, Hula and I need to post a Trip Report. I'll see if I can make some photos of the buffalo round - up if we get there in time. Also the Indian encampment at Standing Rock. One never knows what the road will bring. That's why we travel in a truck camper. We go anywhere at any time. Meanwhile, thanks to DE Bishop for the wise words, NYCsteve for Sylvan Lake and the Sunday Gulch Trail and the info that the park is dog friendly, O6Fargo for encouraging a TR, Gritdog about Mt Rushmore at night, ReneeG for he kind words and advice to go to Rushmore Cave and Wind Cave, Jimh425 for warning about the expansion joints. Is that because of the cold winters?, Gbopp for keeping on smiling, realter for the kind invitation. We leave in about 12 hours. Meanwhile I'm cooking my favorite road food, spicy chicken curry with my home grown Thai peppers. I managed to build a bonfire in TCM's Gordon White's belly at the East Coast TC Rally with my curry. Jane said she heard Gordon say he liked it. But, I can't always make out what people are saying when they're crying. So, if we invite you to have a meal, you've been forewarned ;-)

RE: The Old Avion is heading for the Dakotas - advice?

Realter, thanks for your tip. We're going to Davenport, then up to Iowa City and Ames where Jane has colleagues at Iowa and Iowa State. We'll wind up in Sioux City camping on an overlook on the Misssouri. We're taking hwy 20 out of Sioux City as we head West. We prefer country roads, so we'll avoid 80. (I think I got that right). Thanks!

The Old Avion is heading for the Dakotas - advice?

Jane and I, along with our blue eyed, Aussie Shepherd, Hula the Wonder Dog, are heading out this week end for the Dakotas by way of Iowa and Nebraska. Our interest is in visiting the Lakota Indian Reservation near Standing Rock, North Dakota, where there has been the largest gathering of tribes in decades to oppose an oil pipeline under the Missouri. I'm a former news photographer and Jane is an anthropologist, so our TC trips often reflect our life - long curiosities. But, we also plan on camping at the Merritt Reservoir in Nebraska, and traveling up to Custer State Park where we can observe the Buffalo roundup. We have reservations in Blue Bell for a campsite. Last one available, so it look like its crowded up there. Then its up to Crazy Horse and Mount Rushmore. If anyone has advice about the region we're visiting, we'd sure appreciate hearing from you. http://i739.photobucket.com/albums/xx38/dgorton/hula_zpszndscso1.jpg

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Hey Cajun! I've got that exact one. Tow my Suzuki Samurai with it. We can compare the setups at the Avionista Gathering at Rastaman's Florida country place next month.

RE: Lake Superior Circle Tour TR (pic heavy)

Thanks for the information. We plan on making a similar trip in the near future.
