RE: Ontario, San Bernardino, Riverside, CA area

Prado Regional Park as noted above. Or maybe Rancho Jurupa Regional Park.

RE: Where to buy Trojan T-105 AGM’s

The Trojan page has a Dealer Locator tool, which lists a number of dealers in NV. You can narrow down the results to within a chosen number of miles from your zip code. E-mail and phone contact info are given. tools.trojanbattery.com/dealers.aspx

RE: TC Report -- Time to go milling!

I am always amazed by the new and different uses folks have for their TC's. Yours is the first mill I've seen. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Our spring break trip to the central coast

This is what a trip report ought to be. Thanks for sharing!

RE: TR Lassen National Park trip March 2018

Great report! I especially like the way you include safety equipment in your reports.

RE: Conundrum...1..8 vs 2..4’s

If it weren't for the fact that I have seen many campgrounds limit the number of tents to 2 per site, I'd say one tent per person in your case. Each boy would then have his own to take on trips with friends later.

RE: TR: Mountains east of San Diego (and Anza Borrego)

You're making me homesick! Laguna Campground is an hour away from my former home base; now it's about 4 hours and worse traffic, so I don't go as often. Loved the sheep videos!

RE: Plaskett Creek NFS CA-1 Closure

I've been over N-F Road several times in the Tiger. I've seen vehicles there that were way too large to safely use the road, and now it is probably worse. Since that is the only way in/out of that patch of HWY 1, all folks who live there or work there or take supplies to there are using that road.

RE: CA HWY 1 - Now. Help Us Trip Plan.

Some California state parks have "enroute" sites; a few of these parks are on the beach. List online: http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=21687 The sites are not reservable. Usually you have to arrive after 6 PM, pay full price for a regular campsite, and park in the day use area, which you must exit before 9 AM. Usually one night only and you cannot come back for a second night for a month or so. Policies vary from park to park. I've stayed in the enroute sites at Carpinteria and felt like I was parked in a highway. El Capitan told me they didn't have such sites when I arrived, even though the state page says they do. I am in the process of putting together a trip for myself on the northern part of Hwy 1 in May and many parks (not just state) are booked solid for the weekends. Some parks don't even open until Memorial Day. Boondocking opportunities are scarce to non-existent. Having camped on the CA coast for well over 50 years, I have to say that I would not consider a trip there without reservations. Sometimes I do reservations for alternate nights and try to deal with the nights in between, but I do not enjoy all the anxieties which that method brings up. That's me. You may be bolder or luckier in finding places where a last-minute opportunity came up.

RE: Plaskett Creek NFS CA-1 Closure

Plaskett Creek appears to be between the two current Hwy 1 closures, both longterm, one for bridge being out and one for mudslide. Caltrans road conditions page shows some one-way spots, but it is not clear to me if you can currently reach Plaskett Creek without going over Nacimiento-Ferguson road through Fort Hunter-Liggett. That road may not be open to TT's as long as yours appears to be. You might try calling the USFS Monterey Ranger District (831) 385-5434 or the camp concessionaire (805) 434-1996. 101 to Hwy 46 over the hills to the coast should get you to San Simeon Washburn camp without any problems.

RE: knowledge of campgrounds intersecting PCT

Tiger 4X4RV....it's possible since you know the area around Lake Isabella, I might have seen you maybe 3 years ago along 395 in late March maybe 3 years ago? There happened to be 2 Tigers camping off the road within view of the highway and we had come out of Death Valley heading north. Not me. I do spend time along 395 every year, but have not done so with another Tiger. It's good to know that there are others out there.

RE: knowledge of campgrounds intersecting PCT

It is not uncommon for people to hike the PCT with support at junction points, so the data is out there but you have to hunt a bit. I have friends who have done this. Also, there was someone a few years ago who wrote a book about this sort PCT hiking, but I cannot locate the info on that right now. The best maps I know of, downloadable, free, and updated often, are HalfMile's maps on the PCTA.org website. Direct link to them: https://www.pctmap.net/ Campgrounds are noted on these maps. The Pacific Crest Trail Association website has tons of info, especially under the "Discover the trail" section. The book and film, Wild, were crazy popular, but not very informative about the trail itself and the sort of data you need. The PCT crosses a dirt road at Bird Spring Pass, roughly between the Jawbone off-road area and Lake Isabella; you can search for this on Google Maps. There is a crossing near the Walker Pass BLM campground on HWY 178 near Lake Isabella. The PCT also crosses Chimney Peak Back Country Bywayand there are some campgrounds along it. The PCT crosses Hwy 108 at the top of Sonora Pass, as well as all of the other trans-Sierra passes. I have personally been to all of these places with my Tiger RV. I'm not sure I would advise taking your much-larger Host Mammoth on either Chimney Peak Byway or Birdspring Pass road. When snow is deep in the High Sierra or when parts of the trail are closed by fire damage, hikers often skip sections and come back to finish them later in the season. I don't think that the PCT goes anywhere near Joshua Tree, but there was some talk of rerouting 15 years ago when I was active on this subject, so perhaps I should say that it didn't then but it might now. Others will hopefully have more info to contribute. I'll follow this thread and answer anything I can.

RE: What tablet to by?

Info from Google Play app store: Dropbox for Android tablet requires Android 4.1 and up. You have Android 3.1. Waze for Android tablet says varies with device. To run Dropbox, you need to either upgrade the software on the tablet you have now from 3.1 to something higher or get a new Android tablet which already has 4.1 or higher. I don't know about Waze; perhaps someone else can chime in. Disclaimer: I am not an Android expert. I just looked up the info on Google Play.

RE: BLM information

BLM used to have very good websites, but a couple of years ago much of the useful info disappeared. There is still pretty good info on AllStays and Campendium, but the links there (to the original BLM sites) are often dead ends. It is best to start your search asking about camping in a region. That can lead to BLM and all sorts of other sites. Refine with available filters such as price and amenities to get to the type of camp you want.

RE: short Class B for fulltime solo travel

Thank you. At present I'm leaning toward later models, for better technology and hopefully more reliability. Try Roadtrek SS Agile.

RE: The “Wall”....For Those Who Camp in the Cold

I have Reflectix covers for all windows in both cab and coach, plus a pleated pull-across curtain between cab and coach. I add a blanket on top of the pleated curtain if it is really cold. This setup is great for keeping either hot or cold air from the cab out of the living quarters. The Wall idea probably works, too, but it does not meet the RV criteria of every item having at least two uses in order to earn the space it occupies. OK, it is true that my pull-across curtain doesn't meet them either, but it came with the Tiger and it folds into almost no space which perhaps exempts it from the Two Uses rule.

RE: Help with keeping Refrigerator running

Don't overlook the option of just using the refrigerator as an icebox. Buy ice or get a bunch of refreezable blue ice blocks and refreeze half of them in the hotel refrigerator while the other half keep your RV refrigerator cold overnight. No more worries about propane or batteries or keeping the unit level.
