RE: born free RVs

The Born Free website still lists them as being in Iowa. http://www.bornfreerv.com/

RE: fire ban

Sometimes it is not the fire you "need," it is the illusion of fire. Maybe a tray full of little battery-operated flickering tea light candles?

RE: Lee Vining Creek, CA

Clearance is better at Lower Lee Vining. As said above, there are several other campgrounds in this area.

RE: TKA miss the RV

2 TKR's for me. Much pain at one month, where you are now. On the road in the RV, even easy hikes, at about 10 or 11 weeks each time. Hang in there!

RE: Great destination. Great accommodations. But...

Thanks for sharing your trip. We never outgrow our need for little red wagons, do we? Very useful to have around at any age.

RE: Sometimes a great misadventure

Great writeup! You, your wife, the horses, the truck, the TC - all survived. You'll remember this trip for a long time.

RE: California and Nevada Stopovers

The Bishop BLM field office has several campgrounds along 395. In my experience, Goodale is usually the quietest. http://www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/bishop/camping/index.html $5 a night, half price with senior pass. Vault toilets. Sometimes potable water.

RE: Lance Squire 3000: Dometic Fridge not Lighting in Gas Mode?

Usually holding the button in creates a spark, which then ignites the fuel. If no ignition, wait a few minutes, listen for the safety switch to reset before attempting to light again. Can you hear the spark? Sometimes it helps to light a stove burner and run it for a few minutes so that there is LPG in the lines. If the rig has not been used in a while, the line might have air in it so even a good spark will not ignite it. If still no luck, add the frig make and model to your next post so we can look for online owner's manuals.

RE: Not even a newbie yet - but thinking of trying

Here in California, there are companies which will deliver a fully-stocked rental trailer to your campground and set it up for you. I could not find such a service for Nebraska, but the Grand Island KOA apparently has a couple of rental trailers (https://koa.com/campgrounds/grand-island/site-type/unique-lodging/. Since you said you have never even stayed in an RV, this might be a way to ease into things.

RE: Toddler bed restraint

Maybe a fine mesh net fastened over the top of the crib? Make sure there are no loose cords (strangling hazard).

RE: 1990 six pac camper sc100

This, from the Six-Pac website, might be useful to you. It mentions draining the water tank, but gives no clues as to how to do this. Owner's Manual for 1970's to 1990's Six-Pacs

RE: 1990 six pac camper sc100

It might be that it has no drain. I had a 1989 camper (not a SixPac) which was that way.

RE: Trip reports: Desolation/Mokelumne Wildernesses & Angeles NF

I've been in those areas, complete with both flowers and rattlesnakes, but not doing such ambitious hiking. Thanks for sharing your stories and your glorious photos.

RE: Small trailer or van camper

You have a good truck, set up and ready to tow. If I were you, I would choose the small TT. Your initial cost would be lower than that of buying even a used Roadtrek. TT's are fairly easy to climb in and out of. You can park a TT and explore in the truck. TT's have a more spacious feeling inside than Roadtreks, including probably more headroom which is a big factor if you are tall. I have logged many thousands of small TT miles before getting my small C. TT's are great and I might have one now except I don't want to tow solo. Happy travels!

RE: Dometic "ice chest" refrigerators

I am looking at the CDF-11... It isn't big... but it is big enough to hold some food and keep it cold. What I'm curious about is the freezer mode. Would that be able to keep frozen food safely below 32 degrees even in Texas heat? I can also use it to freeze water bottles and freezer packs, to help augment cooling of the absorption fridge in these 100+ days here in Texas. In testing at home and also on the road, I could not get the CDF-11 to get down to the requested 24 degrees when the room around it was hot. The user manual, which you can download online, warns of this in temperatures above 90 degrees. It did get to below 32 degrees. As to loading freezer packs, access to the freezer compartment is a bit awkward. 3 or 4 hard-side "weekender" size packs would fit into the compartment if you could get them there, but you can't. They have to go in diagonally and then there is no room to turn. I had room for a half-size, two full-size, and then another half-size, inserted in that order. Or, there is room for 6 16-ounce bottles. There are some videos on YouTube which show the CDF-11 loaded with various items; take a look at them (just search for "CDF-11"). The smaller upper section holds two cans or various small items (cheese?) and chills but does not freeze.

RE: Dometic "ice chest" refrigerators

I recently bought a CDF-11 model, the smallest portable compressor-type that Dometic makes. It served me well on last week's trip in temperatures over 100 degrees. I used it as a refrigerator, since the built-in 3-way is just about useless in such hot weather. The CDF-11 fit nicely between the cab seats, ran off the 12V plug in the dash, and kept food and drinks safely cold. I am satisfied with its performance.

RE: Altitude sickness...

I worked at the hospital in Vail (8150 ft) for several years, and can say that what you're feeling is perfectly normal. Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS)can be very mild for some and life threatening for others. We would often see folks who have been coming to the mountains for years but "never felt this way until this trip," then would be fine the next time they came out. AMS can be pretty unpredictable. ... Agreed on that! From what I've seen with myself and others, AMS can affect the fit or the unfit, the young or the old, and not necessarily in the same way every time. I often use a "climb high sleep low" strategy. Example: dayhike at 10-11K feet near the top of Tioga Pass, camp down near Mono lake at 6-7K feet. Here is some good info from the National Library of Medicine: link Take AMS seriously. If in a group, keep an eye on each other. If alone, know what symptoms to watch for and descend or seek medical treatment as appropriate.

RE: Morro Bay trip.

Morro Bay SP, San Simeon SP, and Montana de Oro SP are wonderful places to spend some time. That area has something for everyone. I cannot wait to go back. Thanks for sharing your trip.

RE: Heading for Montana

Best wishes for safe and happy travels! I've gotten a lot of campsite ideas from your website over the years. Thank you for sharing them.
