RE: Need a answer on a 2001 Excel 5er

Have you checked the bulbs?

RE: Goodyear G114 Tires

I personally am so confident in my GY "H" tires I won'r waste my money on a monitoring system. The two GY "H" issues I have heard about both had center tread loss with NO pressure loss. I've had 3 blowouts with them.

RE: Spearfishing from Bahia Honda in the Keys???

So, I asked "what are the rules about POSSESSION of spearfishing equipment in the park"? He said "can not have it"! "So if I have a spearfish gun in my camper in the park"? He said, "well, nobody is going to look". "And then put it in my boat and went out fishing"? "You can't use it in the park---the boundary goes out 400 feet" I can't see a situation where anyone would know you have the equipment if you are discreet.

RE: Spearfishing from Bahia Honda in the Keys???

I live close to Bahia Honda and go over there about every day. I'll ask next time I'm there.

RE: Border Crossing

I've been searched a couple of times at Sweet Grass, never at Del Bonita. But I've never crossed at Del Bonita. They have a nice indoor "inspection facility" at Sweet Grass. You go into a "waiting room" with large windows, so you can watch them throw all of your stuff on the floor. I think my name was on the "list" as I had an alcohol infraction a few years earlier in New Brunswick. I told the New Brunswick guy I took the same amount of alcohol on trips to Alaska. He said US travelers, crossing through Canada, on their way to Alaska get "special consideration". I think I read somewhere your name stays on the "list" like for 7 years. Once while searched I had my cremated dog in a white cardboard box wrapped with Saran Wrap in the back seat. They tore into that---I guess who wouldn't want to know what's in a box wrapped with Saran Wrap. .

RE: Pulling 5ver to Alaska

A 30' fifth wheel should be no problem for a Dodge dually--if that's your question. .

RE: Driving our homebuilt rig to Alaska....questions

I think the very first thing on the list for an Alaska trip is tires. Having tires in good condition and having the appropriate spares for your vehicles. I had a heck of a time finding a 19.5 tire in Florida. Another time 60 miles east of Kansas City--wasn't so hard, but had to wait 2 hours for Wing Foot to bring some. That isn't going to happen along the Alaska Highway. I think you will find hauling the boat up and back to be a HUGE Pita. I can assure you your trip will be much easier without it.

RE: Amazon packages in Quartzsite

I've used "POB" to avoid using "PO" or "box".

RE: Key West

Skip flying into KW, instead fly into either Miami or Ft.Laurdale and enjoy the drive down the Keys! Have done this many times and it never gets old. Actually it does get old. I live in Big Pine, hardly ever go north of Marathon. I dread the drive up to Miami. The problem is everyone flying into Miami or Ft Lauderdale and driving down here like they are on vacation, clogging the roads. And speaking of coming down during summer? It starts getting bad in May. Just going outside and the sweat pours off. I go north for 4 months. .

RE: State Residency Question?

You can file a "Declaration of Domicile" in Florida at the County Clerk. So that, a Florida Divers License, and a Florida Voter Registration should qualify you a Florida Resident.

RE: Facts about diesel ideling

I have found with my truck (3500 diesel), if I start the engine it will initially run on high idle. Once the engine reaches it's desired temperature, it will shift to low idle. When it does that, I's OK to drive it. If you put the truck in gear it will shift to low idle---it's OK to drive.

RE: Campground Reservations

I think Denali has both reservable sites and "walk-up" sites. I have called a week ahead and got in. Also have been there many times and they always had walk-up sites for tomorrow, if not today.

Pumped Gas into my Diesel

I pumped about 15 gallons of gas into my diesel pickup. A State Trooper there at the station told of someone to call. They showed up in about 45 minutes. Pumped about 20 gallons of fuel out into a barrel in the back of his pickup. Filled up with 35 gallons of diesel and was on my way! And he charged my only $250---best $250 I ever spent!

RE: Vanleigh Vilano = TIFFIN !!

One floorplan available in 2 sizes---not impressed. I remember when HitchHiker had more than 30 models in about 8 different lines.

Morning Lows

It's 79 degrees at 6 AM here in the Florida Keys. It's 69 at McAllen and 41 at Yuma. How's everybody else doing?

RE: Levi Jackson & All Other Kentucky SPs; Never Again!

Sorry, guys. Didn't mean to open a "can of worms" here. Wishing you all a Great Thanksgiving, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! No can of worms--- it's just backlash from your lack of planning. You failed to do your homework to find a site that would meet your requirements. Then to come here and go on and on and on about it. Wishing YOU a Great Thanksgiving, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! And the same from Kentucky State Parks---I'm sure!

RE: Bahia Honda

It was unoccupied this AM. I "stepped it off"---16 paces---better than 45'. Sites 38-40 are "single-wide". The other sites in that row are "double-wide" and listed as 48'. They are all the same length. Due to the width, maybe it's difficult to get a big RV turned into those sites---so they list them as 20'? .
