RE: Monument Valley Utah

Phil...I don't really know if a lift kit is an absolute requirement for a 4x4. I don't think Scotty's are lifted. Mine was done to suit the original owner. A miner. And in truth..I like it. Takes the worry out of getting close to things on the ground. I used to use it as a girl-friend tester... Plus, one can get those cute foot steppers uppers put on. Gary Haupt My Tiger is not lifted. Just stock Chevy Silverado. I liked that it is not has high off the ground as a stock Ford and that I do not need any slippery shin-banging foot stepper thingys to get into the cab. I have driven VOG twice, Moki Dugway once. No clearance problems.

RE: COE public records?

Try this page. It gives a previous successful bid range for each site. http://www.workamper.com/WorkamperNews/TWNCorpsContracts.cfm BTW, laws require public records to be public, but that does not necessarily mean that they must be easy to find or free of charge to access. It took me a while to dig down to this, and I am an info professional. :-)

RE: Does a 22 foot B+ fit in a regular parking spot?

My Tiger is 20 feet long and 87 inches wide. I try to get an end spot at the curb or in a parking lot. That usually works. Getting out of the cab door can be a problem with vehicles on each side. I am thinking that your Gulfstream is wider than the Tiger.

RE: Altitude sickness

Take altitude sickness seriously; the advanced stages of it can kill you. Even the early stages are a pain, as you have discovered. I have had troubles with it for years, usually cope with the "climb high, sleep low" method. For me, this can be hiking at 10K+ feet and going back down the hill to a camp at 7K feet in California's Eastern Sierra. The problem for me does seem to be getting worse as I age. Reputable info can be found online at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control: http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/yellowbook/2014/chapter-2-the-pre-travel-consultation/altitude-illness U.S. National Library of Medicine/National Institutes of Health: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000133.htm Good luck!

RE: TR - Great Basin National Park, Baker NV - Aug 2014

Be flexible with that plan. A few years ago I was in the GBNP area in late May, hoping to visit, and there it was snowing even at Ward Charcoal Ovens, which is much lower in elevation than GBNP.

RE: In search of silence -- a new map may help, but . . . .

Interesting. I explored the webpage of the NPS Natural Sounds and Night Skies Division, which apparently developed this map. No luck filling your request yet, but other interesting issues arose. What about natural sounds, such as thundering waterfalls and bugling elk? And what about the flock of honking geese that flies down the street at my new home around dawn? Being along the Pacific Flyway may sound great to a nature lover, but it becomes less charming when you don't leave and go sleep somewhere else. And what will your introduced sounds such as waterpump and opening doors do to the quiet area in which you have chosen to camp?

RE: TC off the grid, and solar question

How much current does a TC run for just day to day living (no AC inverter for microwave). Refreg on propane, hot water on propane, couple LED lights, maybe heater starts, will the load ever go over 30A? The only High current stuff I might run is a small inverter to run a Satellite receiver. Don't forget the water pump.

RE: Gary went boom

Start looking for one of those old wire hangers that you can take apart for when you need to scratch your leg under that cast! :W NO NO NO! Here is a quote from the cast care instructions the doctor gave me. I don't know if this tip works, because itching has not been a problem for me. "Try blowing cool air from a hair dryer or fan into the cast to help relieve itching. Never stick items under your cast to scratch the skin."

RE: Dogs out west and hazards to avoid...

Don't forget the dangers posed by plants, especially cholla cactus. Prickly pieces of cholla on the ground cause trouble for dogs and people alike.

RE: Gary went boom

Could have been my back that got broken..but yes, my left leg, where it sits on the ankle. Got two pins yesterday in surgery and now off the leg for 12 weeks. That looks like the same cast I am currently wearing after breaking my right tibia at the ankle 12.5 weeks ago. When the doctors say stay off it, do that! I did not comply very well for the first 4 weeks (could stand a bit on the cast and it didn't hurt and it made things so much more convenient (no nurse at my house)); X-ray at 4 week mark showed that the break had enlarged. The doctor and I chose not to do surgery; medical literature shows that conservative treatment of a break like mine is usually just as effective as surgery. My HMO provided a wheelchair and I bought a knee scooter; between the two of these I can get around fairly well without weight on the foot. Still, some days I get really cranky from cabin fever. Hopefully with time and good care, you and I will both be back RV'ing soon.

RE: Gary went boom

Gary, best wishes for getting well soon and staying sane during the convalescent period.

RE: RV Trip Throughout the Northern U.S.

Must-see suggestions: Maine - Acadia NP - include Schoodic area and other less-visited parts. take a nature cruise (I have been to Isle au Haut, the Cranberries, Monhegan and a couple of others and enjoyed all in spite of my lifelong motion sickness issues). The Farnsworth Museum in Camden/Rockwell area, including the Olson House if you like Wyeth. North Dakota - theodore Roosevelt NP. Lewis & Clarke route

RE: New Northstar STC model

Northstar site says window in entry door is an option. The 12STC is the closest I've seen to the perfect RV for me in a long time.

RE: Nacimiento-Fergusson Rd. Hwy. 1 CA

My C is only 20 feet long and 87" wide. No problem. Your length is probably OK. Width might be a problem. When I last drove the road two years ago, it was mostly narrow, winding, and about a lane and a half wide. On a week day, there was little traffic on the east side of the crest. It got heavier on the western side, where it might be quite busy on a weekend. Drive cautiously. It is a spectacular trip.

RE: Boondocking Tips

I have done mostly boondocking or dry camping for many years. Have set aside your post to read later and am sure I will learn something from it. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

RE: TR: Anza Borrego Desert: Fish and Olla Wash

Nice!! I do have a question not being familiar with this area. Is it safe to camp in those dry river beds? Thinking of a flash flood. I actually know several members of a group who went car camping out there some years ago. I think it was in February. They got to high ground when the water rose, but even later were unable to get out of the area until a jeep club came and rescued them. The Fish Creek area is great to explore, but you ought never forget that it drains a VERY large area of desert. Anutami, great TR and photos, as usual. Thanks!
