RE: Pickup based Motohomes

For 15years, I had a custom C built on a 1983 Toyota 4x4 chassis. 17feet bumper to bumper, fully self-contained. Perfect for me except for being underpowered and too much vehicle for the transmission and brakes of the stock 4-cylinder truck. Even so, I went all over the place with it. It looked sort of like the OP's photo but not as snazzy. My 2006 Tiger CX is built on a stock Chevy 2500HD 4x4 chassis. Everywhere I go, it attracts interest, Often more for its size than for being 4WD. You'd think that more makers would get the idea.

RE: Odie of the Outback, Capital Reef style.

In addition to still having "it," you have apparently become the Designated FlatTireGetter for all of us. Thank you so much for that and for the great trip report.

RE: BLM camping?

The BLM provides much info online in a fairly standardized format. Go to a state's BLM page (Google or the BLM national home page will lead you to it), click the What We Do tab, click Recreation, click Camping. You will often find the maps there. If not, use the contact info provided on the website. I've had good luck in getting responses to very specific e-mail queries ("Can I camp at location XYZ?" not "Can I camp in your state?") Here is an example from Arizona BLM: http://www.blm.gov/az/st/en/prog/recreation/camping.html

RE: old school observation.... tire whacker

Ah, the memories. When I bought my DRW RV in 1991, I thumped the tires every morning. Also checked oil every morning. Now, I rely on the computer to tell me most of the time. Thumping is also used for choosing melons and is part of telling when homemade bread is done baking.

RE: TR: Anza Borrego and Ghost Mountain

What an adventure for kids, to be able to imagine how it might have been to live up on Ghost Mountain. Great photos. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Prescott Nat Forest in mid-November -- what's it like?

National Weather Service archived day-by-day weather observations for November a year ago in Prescott, AZ: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/climate/index.php?wfo=fgz NWS has vast stores of data which can help in trip planning.

RE: Reference guide for tent camping

Tom Steinstra's books are good. RV, tent, hike-in, bike-in, even boat- in. Look at them in a bookstore or see sample pages online before you buy. There are some good websites for tenting sites. I will try to remember to find my bookmarks for them when I get to my home computer tonight. One of them is The Ultimate Public Campground site. It has excellent search tools and is also available as an app; you can see basic info with the app even when you are offline, must go online for full details.

RE: Devils Postpile Nat'l Monument at Mammoth Lakes CA

I think you are allowed to drive in if very early in the day, before shuttle bus starts running. After that campers only. Check with Inyo NF when the spring season opens.

Oasisbob, All that said, no one should rely solely on a GPS receiver. Bring along a real map (topo) and compass and learn how to plot your location (as measured by the GPS) on your map. Also learn how to navigate with your compass and map. For where I go and what I do, these skills are, quite frankly, lifesaving. Steve X2 on that! In the days before GPS, I spent some time as a volunteer instructor introducing newbies to the outdoors in both urban and remote wilderness. Our mantra was STAY FOUND. Carry a map. Figure out where you are on the map before you start. Look at local landmarks or "handrails" - This hike will stay between the freeway and the lake or this hike will stay in the valley between these mountain ranges. Pause at each intersection and figure out where you are again, including a glance back down the trail to see what it looks like in the other direction. Updating for modern tech: I now take photos of the kiosk map at the trailhead and of the trail along the way; I can refer to them along the trail if need be. I carry digital topo maps downloaded free from USGS in my iPod Touch. I also sometimes scan or photograph hiking guidebook pages and carry them along in paper or digital format. Make your technology work for you. Otherwise, it is just more weight in your pack. And no, I do not have a GPS. If I ever decide to get one, it will probably be a Garmin.

RE: Does anybody make a 12 VDC, AA Battery Charger?

Duracell. I have other chargers, but the Duracells have been the best. Have not yet tried eneloop.

RE: How much is an RV parking space at home worth to you?

When I bought in 1985, I did not yet have an RV. One factor in being able to afford to buy an RV in 1991 was the availability of a legal RV spot at the house. A couple of times over the years I have looked for larger houses, never found one I liked that had legal RV parking, which had come to mean a lot to me. BTW, quite a few houses said they had RV parking in the ad, but investigation showed it to not be legal. I recently moved to a senior mobile home park with a storage lot. The cost is minimal to use that lot and no RV parking is allowed at my new house except for loading and unloading. This has been a painful change, not just the aging and health issues which forced the move but also not having the RV right there and ready to go. Loading will now have to be all at once instead of a bit each day. That was a long leadup to my answer to the O P's question. Is RV parking at the house worth paying extra for the house? YES!

RE: TC to Class C - anyone have a locking differential?

I agree. My LS has engaged several times and really made a helpful difference. My Tiger is built on a stock Chevy 4x4 pickup chassis with a few extras that I ordered like LS and skid plate. Most MH's probably do not have such factory options.

RE: TC to Class C - anyone have a locking differential?

Tigers (http://www.tigervehicles.com/) come with all sorts of 4WD options. You can order regular, extended, or crew cabs. There are several models and lengths of Tigers. My Tiger has 4WD with a limited-slip differential. I am happy with that. Most of my 4WD travel is what you might call "4WD lite" - smallish rocks, sand, gravel, maybe a bit of mud. You are not going to be able to rock-crawl or do Jeep sorts of things with any vehicle as large as you are talking about unless maybe you get something with a Fuso chassis.

RE: Freedom campers

I found a page for a pop-up tent trailer on the Forest River RV page. Rockwood "Freedom Series." Might that be what you saw? link
