RE: Walt's RV Surplus Has Moved and has a new owner

Thanks! I have recently relocated and this is not far from my new home. Good info to have. I hope that all goes well with your medical issues.

RE: The Grand Canyon to improve handicapped access

Yes, the key is to have actual disabled campers making the final decisions about how money will be spent. Yes. Having had to use various mobility aids over the years (wheelchair, walker, cane, crutches), my observation is that most efforts are made to help disabled persons who are on wheels. Rough spots and long distances are daunting to those on feet (canes, crutches), and barriers such as doors are especially difficult with crutches. Restaurants where patrons have to carry their food/drink to tables pose problems when one's hands are both occupied with crutches.

RE: Refugio Oil Spill

The Santa Barbara County website has the most up-to-date info I could find at this time. It includes documents from the agencies leading the unified response effort. It also includes a very active county Twitter feed and some suggestions for alternate camping areas which still have spaces available. https://www.countyofsb.org/

RE: A map of my 540 campsites for the last 9 years

Thanks for the great map! I've stayed at many spots that I learned about from you over the years. I don't fish, but we travel the same areas and seem to prefer to same type of campgrounds. Aren't we fortunate to live in the West?

RE: BC Provincial Parks

They may accept them according to availability, according to their official site: http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/fees/ I suppose that means the camp host has to have a connection to the credit card processor.

RE: Stiff Neck --- New Radar Assisted Car Any Help??

I had stiff neck troubles a few years ago and physical therapy really helped. Might be cheaper for you both than a new car, and better for your lives all around. And X2 on backing into the parking space. Prevention beats cure any day.

Beautiful, and apparently a good adventure for you. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Will 20 mos. old be to young for Yellowstone?

We camped and did long road trips when the kids were that age, and I agree with other posters: for now, Yellowstone is not the best place to be taking your little one. I cannot offer a better suggestion because I am a Westerner and not real familiar with sights nearer to your home. Do try to choose some place quieter and more child friendly and enjoy a quiet campout with your baby. Dig in the mud. Watch the critters. Wade in the water. You will all have fun.

RE: CA Forest Maps available to the Public

That's a great compilation of resources. I checked out a few links to favorite places. Some sources provide free downloadable maps and some items are for purchase. I've used the free PDF topos from the USGS for years. I use an old 32 GB iPod Touch and the Files Pro app (there are other similar apps) to carry detailed maps along on hikes. No wi-fi, no being online, no huge sheets of paper. Our tax dollars at work! Again, thanks for sharing this link page.

RE: New to dry camping

... use lanterns either gas or battery around the camp site and inside the trailer at night. ... Please do not use gas lanterns inside unless the RV is very well vented!

RE: Marker lights...LAW???pj

I asked a family member who is in law enforcement. He said that as far as he knew such lights are not required. However, if a vehicle has the lights they have to be in working condition.

RE: Arizona To Alaska

I am going to miss your wonderful desert photos, and am looking forward to equally wonderful Alaska photos. Have a safe trip.

RE: Wildrose - Free Camping in Death Valley National Park

Thanks for sharing the photos and the info. I haven't been there in a long time. Maybe it is time to go back.

RE: New to dry camping

3 people for 3 days might be pushing the black tank unless you use campground toilets some of the time. Remember that it takes electricity to pump water. You don't say how many amp hours your battery bank can store, but my guess is that you ought to be conserving electricity wherever you can. You probably have plenty of propane, but you might want to consider turning off the water heater. If you won't be showering, you could heat just enough water for dishes on the stove. If you end your trip with a bit of water, a bit of tank space, and a bit of electricity left, you will have been successful. Going over - not good! Have a great trip!

RE: Inverter for Fans and CPAP?

Often, you can purchase an optional 12V cord matched to your CPAP unit and run the CPAP on 12V. That is what I do. More efficient than an inverter. As to fans, Fantastic Fan (usually overhead vent) runs on 12V. FF also makes Endless Breeze fans, with 12V cord; these are portable to the length of the cord. If you want an inverter and fan, I have had great results from a little $10 portable box fan from Walmart and a 100W Duracell inverter.

RE: Assist step for cab, Sprinter Class C RV?

Until you find something better, you could get a small stepstool. Have her climb into the cab with its assistance, then you put the stepstool somewhere until time to help her down again. Some stepstools fold up for compact storage.

RE: Buy out of state

The DMV website has complete and correct info on buying an out-of-state vehicle. DMV site I cannot get the link to the correct page to work here. Go to Vehicle Registration, then "Buying and Selling," then "Buying an Out-of-State Vehicle." Pay special attention to registration issues and to sales tax issues. I just copied this off that linked DMV site: "If you are a California resident and acquire a new car, truck, or motorcycle from another state, it must be certified to meet California smog laws to be registered in California. This includes certain diesel-powered vehicles. DMV cannot accept an application to register a vehicle in California that does not qualify for registration (California Health and Safety Code ยงยง43150 - 43156). What Is Considered a New Vehicle? California considers any vehicle with less than 7,500 miles on the odometer at the time of purchase or trade by a California resident or business, to be a new vehicle. This is true whether or not the vehicle has been registered in another state. Aren't All Vehicles California Certified? Not all new vehicles are manufactured to be sold in California. Many manufacturers make vehicles to be sold only in the other 49 states. These vehicles (49-state) are made with smog equipment that meets federal emission standards, but not California standards. California-certified (50-state) vehicles are made to be sold in California."

RE: Ventilation (Alternative to Roof Fan)

Isn't there some sort of safety code which does not allow openable windows on the back of a van? Carbon monoxide issues? Louver windows are great, but nothing beats a fan. Maybe you could put a fan in a side window?
