RE: My trip over the Lolo Trail

Great TR. Isn't that where L &c's mules slid off the trail? Glad you made it safely and had a good trip.

RE: TR: The "Wildnerness" Jennie Lakes near KC and Seq NP

Thank you! That area is going onto my bucket list. It looks great - scenery, trails, lakes, and not too difficult either for driving or for hiking.

RE: jefe4x4 interview

Having spent many hours following and attempting to keep up with Jefe and Cabeza de Vaca on last fall's High Sierra XTC trip, I can truly say that Mike's interview represents Jefe and his rig and his knowledge very well. Jefe is very successful at doing what he loves.

RE: Looking for ideas

Once she can get inside with this new handle, can she get back out? Don't forget something for inside of the door, too.

RE: A visit to Hoh Rain Forest (WA)

We all know that you like to fish. Have you discovered yet that the Hoh Rain Forest is so wet that you can probably catch fish right out of the air?

RE: So, How Was Your Day? Trip Report to Yellowstone N.P. Long

Wow! That's quite a story! I'm glad that things turned out OK and you made the best of it.

RE: What is the oldest thing you take with you camping or rving?

My father-in-law's wool USMC blanket from WWII. Along a similar train of thought, during one break on a long hike, I was trying to figure out the oldest item of hiking gear I owned. It turned out to be my emergency whistle; I had worn out and replaced everything else.

RE: Roadmaster Anti Sway Bars, first impression

My earliest impressions on adding the Roadmaster were less wallowing and what there was damped down faster. I still like it after 8 years.

RE: Dry Camping Silver Creek Idaho

I'll be adding that spot to my next ID trip. Nice!

Great photos! Thanks for sharing them.

RE: e-book basic questions...

No kidding about the nice for traveling factor. I used to buy paperbacks at thrift stores and save them up, take a whole bag of them on a trip, giving them away as I finished them. Now I just download a bunch of free e-books into my iPad (or netbook or PC or whatever) and read them with an app while offline. I've worked in libraries for over 50 years, and I still take delight in all of the wonderful new formats in which we can deliver entertainment or knowledge.

RE: Trip report: Dolomite Mountains (and 5 other countries)

Tiger4x4RV : Going up hills is not a problem - I found that high ratio 2nd gear called for easy acceleration up the 24% inclines. However, going down the same hill was a completely different experience. Low ratio 1st gear and the truck was still running away and had to be checked using the brakes. OK, the engine braking on my diesel truck is fairly poor, but it would be worse on a gasoline engine unless you had an electro-magnetic retarder or exhaust brake. That is why I wondered how you find your gasoline engine'd truck on such descents. ... Steve. I've used low-range 4WD to descend steep gravel, not to mention the Salty Petersen switchbacks on the XTC trip last fall with Jefe4X4 and bro. On pavement, I normally use 2WD, but can use the Allison's tap-shift function to gear down with little braking involved unless the road is very twisty. I'm not a truck techie, don't recall hearing about any special braking on the Tiger. We've all gotten up and down all of our hills so far, and that's what matters! BTW, my prior 4X4 RV was built on a 1983 Toyota 4WD truck chassis, 4 cylinder engine. It was way overloaded. In the 15 years and 60K I drove it, the U joints had to be replaced twice and the brakes once. The U joints are definitely a weak point when you overload a truck. Change them out when you hear the characteristic noise; do not wait until they fail.

RE: Boondocking

Can the people whose land you camp on trust you? It works two ways.

RE: Trip report: Dolomite Mountains (and 5 other countries)

Tiger4x4RV : Ironically off all the other campers on this forum yours would probably be the most suitable for doing these roads, though I guess it depends what the engine-braking is like on your gasoline engine. Steve, The 8.1 with Allison six-speed, electronic transfer on the dash for high and low range 4WD - very capable. The problem is the acrophobic driver, hands clenched to wheel. If no other vehicles were in sight, I could do it. Add oncoming traffic on a narrow road...not my idea of fun. Thanks for your trip and your replies to everyone. BTW, one of my DD's and her husband are tent camping and hiking in Switzerland for 6 weeks. They are about mid-trip now. I am surprised at how many RV's show up in their campground photos.

RE: Little Molas Lake Campground

Excellent description of a totally gorgeous area. I visited in early July, 2012, didn't spend the night because it was really full, but am glad I went.

RE: Trip report: Dolomite Mountains (and 5 other countries)

I wish there were a way to go where you went on this trip without being on those roads! Narrow, steep, crowded, so scary. I can cross the Sierra Nevada on any of the passes without problems, but don't think that my acrophobia would let me complete that road down from the Stelvio Pass. Your photos and narrative make it all real. Thank you for sharing!

RE: Why a small class C ?

I have to add to my earlier post: There is more than deciding on size to getting a rig which fits your personal style. I had a bunch of features (TV, AC, generator, and microwave) deleted from my Tiger when it was built and have been happy with those decisions. Not for everyone, of course, but I knew after my many RVing years what I needed/wanted and what I didn't. It seems to be easier to get a manufacturer to delete than to add.

RE: Why a small class C ?

I also love the road trip part, broken up with some activities around brief base camps, but the base camp days might are sort of mini road trips since I am toadless and even a couple of miles to a trailhead means leaving camp in the RV. My Tiger is just under 20 feet long, an excellent road trip (and off-road trip) vehicle. RVers have different preferences. For some folks, I suppose they don't really know what they want because they are just starting out and they have to buy what is available or what their friends have or whatever. I've been camping in small TTs and small Cs since the 1950's and this style of camping and travel is where I belong. Isn't it great that there is a place for all of us here at RV.net!
