RE: 50 Hidden Gems Across America

To the OP: Thank you for sharing this site. I enjoyed browsing through the 50 states!

RE: Class B "sweet spot"-priced campgrounds, 2 adults

I was also going to suggest the COE Campgrounds but someone beat me to it. You can also find a limited number of National Forest Service campgrounds that have electrical hook-ups. Recreation.gov

RE: Aerial Photo of your house?

Google Earth will tell you the date of the aerial. There is also a "history" button where you can look at previous views. Very fun to play with. And it's free!

RE: Tips for a rather warm trip?

Will there be other RV's around you? If so, they will probably also have their AC units going. If so, then maybe you could leave yours on all night? And if no one else is around you then again you could leave on all night.

RE: Renting RV in Colorado

I immediately thought about Snowy Peaks in Buena Vista. Clicky But I also think a cabin might be fun, too. We have camped in our van and also stayed in cabins. Have fun whatever you decide to do!

RE: Leaky toilet -- more than caulk??

Our's was leaking and the part was no longer made so we had to replace. Now I can't remember what the part was!

RE: Denver, CO to Travese City MI

My first thought was as WE-C-USA suggests. Really pretty drive through Wisconsin and the UP of Michigan. If that doesn't work I would definitely take IH-70 east then onward as Thom suggests. We recently drove that way to and from Western Michigan. On our way back we traveled south on IH-65 and then took the Roselawn, Indiana to Kankakee, IL cut-off. We enjoyed that road more than Highway 24. We also dislike Chicago traffic and avoid it whenever possible. There seemed to be so many, many trucks on the Interstates in May when we travled. If we had more time we probably would have taken more of the state highways.

RE: It finally happened

Yes, a yellow ribbon or anything else yellow on or near your dog means CAUTION.

RE: Autos or RVs parking lot

We are 21 feet and we usually use the RV lots because we are longer than a regular car length

RE: Bypassing Chicago

Mostly we dislike the sitting in truck traffic! And we have also pulled our boat up to Michigan a couple of times. We just avoid Chicago altogether with my route from above. (We also lived in the Richton Park/Matteson early in our marriage!)

RE: Bypassing Chicago

On our way to Muskegon (many, many, many times!) we take IH-57 and then at Gilmer, IL we travel east on Highway 24. Then we take IH-65 north to IH-80/90. Then up north to Michigan. Do not like 57 to 80 because there are tolls and many lanes changes and trucks, trucks, trucks. We tried to take the Lincoln Highway (30) once and it was stop and go, stop and go. Safe Travels!

RE: The desert bar

Well, you made me curious so I looked up Iconic Bars in Every State. Pretty entertaining so I am sharing!

RE: Quick road food

We often fish for long periods of time on our boat. For lunch we enjoy sandwiches and lunch meat. But occasionally I will bake breaded shrimp or Tyson Honey Chicken Tenders and take them along with a small container of cocktail sauce or ketchup. I keep them in the cooler, of course. You could do the same in your truck. Even cold, flat bread pizzas would be nice. Pimento cheese spread is also good. And slices of chesse and lunch meat with some cucumber or other veggies is also tasty. Leftover chicken is also a favorite. I will watch this post for some additional ideas! Enjoy!

RE: A new direction for us

Our van is old. It is a year 2000 model and is still my daily ride. We last attempted a long trip in the summer of 2013 when it broke down (computer chip) after we were just 5 hours into our trip to Colorado. We are taking our Suburban to Colorado this year instead. I did some extensive searches via Trip Advisor for some housekeeping cabins in Colorado. They have a feature where you can search for those who allow pets. We will stay at three different cabin areas and we can have campfires in all. We will be near to or right on lakes and rivers. Smudge will go with us. I have also found that some lodging businesses advertise "No Pets" but when you phone them directly to ask if you can bring your dog (well behaved, 12 pound dog) they mostly say that we can bring him. It helps that he does not shed. Safe and fun travels for you!
