RE: Chaco road?

Was at Chaco last Wed to Fri. Two hours from home. They just bladed the road while we were there. Pretty rough after the winter, pretty good after they bladed it. Depending on when you go, it may be washboarded again by then. We take a Truck and cabover camper along with a jeep to explore with. Was a nice class A at the visitor's center when we left. It is 18 miles of gravel or dirt road from end of pavement to park boundary. For a county kid, I think it is a pretty fair road most of the time, for a pavement follower, it may seem a bit rough. There is no issues other than just bumpy. 30 foot widths, about 6 miles of good gravel and mag chloride making good hardtop and dust control. Rest is pretty good most of the time for rural country out west. On the camping, it has about 45 spots including the tent only spaces (about 25 RV spaces). Limited length for RV's with only a few being 35 foot, most are in the 20's. Pads are level gravel and wide enough for two vehicles side by side (a little tight). No hookups but does have a dump station. Rest rooms with flush toilets, no showers. Limited generator usage. No other services like fuel or snacks. There were a 35'ish Class A and 30 ft Class C their last week. Check Reservations.gov for layout and details The photo is of the RV area. The tent area is close up and out to left. Our rig is deep left. Questions, drop me a PM or post here http://i415.photobucket.com/albums/pp239/dramsey1281/ChacoCampground.jpgThanks, learned a lot. I'll be there in a month.

RE: Route from Phoenix AZ to Holbrook AZ or points East

Had a traveler once tell us of a route from West Phoenix AZ on non-Interstate route that will go to Int at Holbrook AZ or city East on Int 40. Does anyone know of this route? Thanks in advance.I did it many times, Camp Verde had only 10 miles pave to the east. But that was 1969

RE: Traveling the Great Circle

We will be leaving on May 10th for a BIG loop trip starting from our home in Show Low AZ. We will be traveling to: Grand Canyon South Rim Lees Ferry to fish the Colorado River Grand Canyon North Rim Zion Canyon Bryce Canyon Panguitch UT to fish the Sevier River and Panguitch Lake Kodachrome Basin Cedar Breaks National Monument Escalante/Grand Staircase Capitol Reef National Park Canyonlands National Park Arches National Park Mesa Verde National Park Dunes National Park Northeast of Durango Durango Colorado Navajo Lake recreation area in New Mexico to fish the San Juan River. From there we may head home or continue to travel to New Mexico locations. We have reservations at all the locations and are not in a hurry. This Loop is only about 1300 miles and we plan on being gone until the first part of July?? This is our first long road trip since our retirement and we are very excited to get on the road. jesseannieI have done them all to, in fact a few times. You have picked one of the best trip there is, add a few more along the way.

RE: Chaco road?

Yes to class C. We were there the last week of Sept. last year, saw several Class As and Cs, We waited half a day up in Farmington for rain to let up, probably should have waited another day. The road going in was still muddy and slick as driving on ice for vehicles of all sizes. Had to go very slow to avoid sliding into ditches on both sides. There's no shoulder to turn around and go back. Glad when we reached the paved NP roads. The road gets graded by the county periodically, but it's very rutted. The camp host suggested getting up to about 45 to ride the tops of the ruts (rather than go slow, down into them repeatedly.) That worked well leaving on the dry road. Dry is no big deal, wet is scary. It will not be paved, by the way. Proposal to do so was defeated last year by local opponents after funding in place and several years of study. The rangers are happy to take phone calls about road conditions. Very nice folks there. As of this year, you can reserve sites. Recreation.gov. Beats driving that road and wondering if Gallo Campground will be full when you get there. Wonderful experience to see the canyon.How many RV spots?

RE: Traveling thru Texas to Amarillo

Will be heading west late May/early June. Considering taking I-20 to I-35W(north) to Hwy 287 to Amarillo. Can those of you who have traveled Hwy 287 tell me what gas stations along that route can accommodate RVs ? We are pulling a 31' 5er. We will most likely need to find a campground along that route, probably near Wichita Falls. Appreciate any info.Enjoy the rt. done it for years, get a little of that red cay on your tires.Gas in Vernon, they just closed the Chev dealer ship in Vernon. Rattle snakes the size of a Winnebago.

RE: Alaska Hyw.-2014

Gas prices change so fast it just is what it is. I'm in Smithers tonight, on another Vancouver-Whitehorse run - with a U-Haul truck this time. Last time, a month ago, Vanderhoof was 6 cents cheaper than Prince George - today, it was 2 cents higher. Six weeks ago, Watson Lake was the same price as Whitehorse (never seen that before in 25 years running the highway!), and Contact Creek was 2 cents higher. Close your eyes, whip out the credit card and have fun :) I'll be in Stewart tomorrow night (I lived there 39 years ago), home in Whitehorse noonish on Tuesday.Last time I paid 10 cent per liter, but that was 1962.

RE: Alaska Hyw.-2014

The Liard Hot Spring Lodge is often inflicted with poor service and high fuel prices..... They got us for over US$7.20 per gallon last June.Last JUNE on the road I had $8.42 worth of fun on one gallon of gas.

RE: Is a 40 foot fifth wheel too long to access neat places?

Hi to all. We're 30 days into researching full timing and decided on a fifth wheel/ 1 ton DRW truck based on lifestyle choices. We're in our early 50s and enjoy hiking, kayaking, backpacking, biking and are very active with plans to use the trailer as home base, but wonder out quite a bit. Would a 40 foot trailer and 16,000 GVWR be too much in terms physically handling that size rig in parks/ roads and/or would it constrain camp location options? I'm really getting at functional utility of travel as opposed to "livability". We don't necessarily prefer commercial parks that appear on google earth to resemble parking lots. Of course we'll use commercial style parks or even Walmart lots like everyone else at times, but have a preference for wooded parks like state or national parks, because that fits our recreation profile. We'd boondock not as a goal to save money; rather, we'd seek better views and access to hiking, river kayaking, mountain biking, etc.. Is a 40 footer unusual? Thanks so much!yes

RE: Is Muley Point Road suitable for a Class C?

Yes the road is suitable for a class C but watch your overhang. I have a 30 footer with a 12 foot overhang and in the Valley of the Gods parkway as well, it did a little scraping on a few of the not so level sections. Nothing to worry about. By the way here is a picture i took from my motor-glider of the Moki Dugway. I climbed it in the MH towing the glider on a trailer and launched the glider from the top of the dugway. http://i.imgur.com/EpXqbKJ.jpg width=1000I came down this with my 27 ft. 5th wheel a few years back, not a good idea, We also took the road down to San Jaun River off this 20 years back to pick up our raft from a trip we did down the river from Mex. Hat. I would not take my 29ft. motorhome down to the water on the gravel as I remember. Dust , rock, not for RV's unless set up for 4x4.
