RE: 3 week trip from Atlanta to Yellowstone

We were in Yellowstone mid May on a trip from Pa.At some point,you will have to get on I-70 and I-80. Here are some campgrounds we stayed at along the routes. We went from I-70 to I-74 to I-72 to Rt 36 across Missouri.Nice 4 lane ,65mph. We stayed at Pershing State Park. $19 a night for electric.Then onto I-29 to I-80. We stayed at Olagalla Recreation area. Nice campground with electric. $23 a night.Then to Longhorn Ranch Motel and RV Park. Private campground with full hookups. $49 per night.We stayed in Madison Campground in Yellowstone. On way back, we detoured to Minden,Nebraska to see the Harold Warp Pioneer Museum. If you like history,old cars,trucks,tractors etc.this place is great. Next night we stayed at Waubonsie State park in Iowa. $16 a night with electric.

RE: Help - I don't want to kill my truck with my trailer...

I have a 1500 GMC Savanah AWD Van with the 5.3 and towing package pulling a keystone Cougar. Tow rating on van is 6200. The weight of the trailer is 5900 lbs including water and propane with empty waste tanks. When we ordered the trailer, the weight was supposed to be 5400 but they changed the model and made it 18" longer and 500 lbs heavier which they didn't notify us of. Anyways,we just completed a trip from Pa to Yellowstone going through 10 states.We had no issues at all with the tow vehicle.

RE: boondocking,,,what about your furnace ??

We camped in Yellowstone in mid May. Daytime temps were in high 50's low 60's.Night temps between high 30's and low 40's. The heater fan will take you batteries down so you will need to recharge them every day fro a few hours. A propane heater like Mr Buddy would be a good investment if you plan to do alot of cold weather camping. If not using the heater,I can go 4 to 5 days on 2 group 24 batteries.

What to use?

We have a 2015 Keystone Cougar. It is a smooth sided unit. What product should I use to protect the siding?

RE: traveling the blue ridge parkway

Here are a few that aren't on the parkway, but near by. These 2 are in Virginia: Sherando Lake is near the north end. Beautiful campground with electric hookups,bath houses, water hydrants in each loop, dump station and lake with a swimming beach. Also Goose Point. Same amenities with some sites right on the water. In North Carolina, Davidson River has about the same amenities as the 2 in Virginia.

RE: Fulltime stowing your outdoor grill & critters

I use a cable to secure our Webber Q grill to the picnic table unless we're camping in bear country. Then I put it in the pass through storage. I've never had a problem.

RE: NC/SC Beach camping

RE: What do you do when?

AS someone who has things stolen twice over 50 years of camping,I use cable locks to secure my Webber grill to the picknic table, the generator to the trailer A frame and hook the bycicles to each other. Better safe than sorry.

RE: Yellowstone NP, June 9 thru June 27

We were there a few weeks ago. Stayed in Madison but Mammoth looked like there is more privacy between sites.We saw a momma grizzly and 3 cubs on the road between Norris and Canyon. We ate at the Old faithful Inn. Neat place with good food. We also ate in Gardiner,Wyoming at the Cowboy Lodge and Cafe. Good food there too.

RE: Illinois to Wyoming sites to see?

As to routes specifically, there are certainly multiple options, the most viable being I-80 west to Wyoming and then taking one of several available routes northwest to YNP. Those include, but not limited to, US 287 or US 191 from I-80, or taking I-25 from Cheyenne up to Casper and then taking US 20/26 to YNP. These are certainly not the only routes. There could be suggestions to take I-90 across. If you had a more leisurely time frame, I would suggest taking I-72 west from central Illinois to US 36 and taking that all the way west into Colorado, then take US 285 north to US 34 and take that west to I-25, then head north to any of the options above. However, given that you have only 2 weeks to get out here, see the sights and get back, these may not be really workable for you, and again, I-80 probably your best bet. I agree with 72 to 36 across Missouri.It is a good 4 lane road without alot of traffic. 65mph.We stayed at Pershing State Park on the way out. Electric hookups $19 a night. We then took I-29 north and then Nebraska Rt 2 to I-80. We stayed over night at Olagalla recreation area. It's about 15 miles off the interstate but it's a very nice park with new electric hookups. Some sites are right on the water. $18 for a site plus $5 entrance fee.Stayed on 80 to Wyoming 287/26. We stayed at Longhorn Ranch Motel and RV park. Nice sites on the Wind River. They have the best restrooms we've ever seen. $49 a night for full hookups. Lot's of space between sites. In Yellowstone we stayed in Madison. It's centrally located. The Campground at Mammoth looked like the sites were more isolated but Mammoth is at the north end of the park.

RE: Illinois to Wyoming sites to see?

We went from Pa to Yellowstone a few weeks ago. One thing we enjoyed was the Harold Warp Pioneer Museum in Minden ,Nebraska. If you like history,old cars,trucks,tractors,motorcycles or snowmobiles, this is the place to see. They have a campground right there with full hookups,but it's not the greatest.But it was ok for one night. $35 and included one admission to the museum.

RE: Camping world Salesmen ??

For the most part,I have not had good experience with RV sales people.We bought a 2015 model about a year and a half ago from camping world Harrisburg,Pa. The experience was terrible.
