RE: Mega trailer

I saw something similar at a USFS free campsite near Silverton, CO, a couple of years ago. Amazing. http://i1051.photobucket.com/albums/s439/Tiger4x4RV/aac9478d.jpg

Wonderful trip report, as yours usually are. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Banner Road to Julian

Yes, the road is steep and winding. Yes, it is a safe road. One lane each direction and usually good pavement. I prefer to drive it uphill rather than down. There are quite a few turnouts to allow passing for those going uphill. Weekdays will have less traffic and hence less stress. Your profile doesn't say what you will be towing this trailer with. You should be OK if you usually can tow up grades. The bottom of Banner Grade is not near Palm Desert. This road comes up from Shelter Valley, south of Borrego Springs. Maybe you knew that or maybe you meant some other road. Just checking.

RE: Quit the Kayaker's Life?

I've seen modular snap-together plastic kayaks. Don't know if they come in a sea kayak model. The smaller sections are probably way easier to handle than an 18-foot thing.

RE: heading to Chama Peak, Co, where to boondock

Maybe these sites will have info useful to you: from Peakbagger.com, the Chama Peak info http://peakbagger.com/peak.aspx?pid=16666 Check the trip report section for access ideas. USFS Motor Vehicle Usage Maps. I tried the link for Rio Grande NF and it timed out. Not unusual for USFS web pages. You may have better luck. http://www.fs.fed.us/recreation/programs/ohv/ohv_maps.shtml Maps from the Chama Peak Land Alliance, includes one color-coded for some land ownership: http://chamapeak.org/about/maps/ From Summitpost.org, I found this: " From 12,065' south to Chama Peak is within the historic Tierra Amarilla Land Grant. Be cognizant of the boundaries are when exploring this area." http://www.summitpost.org/south-san-juan-range-colorado/405344

RE: prepaid telephone cards 1-800 service

There was no monthly fee when I used OneSuite. I had it for at least ten years. Made a deposit, put a reminder on my calendar to check that there was money left in it once in a while, no troubles. It can be used automatically on your home phone and they give you a code, like one of the card codes, to use on other phones. I have not used it for a year because I moved and my new landline service includes long distance.

RE: Trip to Deadwood Reservoir, ID

Perfect spot, great weather, well-outfitted truck and TC, selection of toys - this trip had it all. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Alaska Canoe and Camp

Quite a change from your past AZ desert trips. Thanks for sharing your new location with us.

RE: Question From a Really Big Guy Maybe You Can Answer

Weight is one issue and the above suggestions sound good. Don't forget the size issue. Can you fit through the RV door? The bathroom door? Be sure to choose a unit that you have actually walked into and tried out. If that is not an option (buying direct from factory?), measure a tight-fit door in your house and see how that measurement compares with the specs on the RV.

RE: prepaid telephone cards 1-800 service

I used OneSuite, an online deposit account, for years as my home long distance and never had a problem. It could be used from any phone and calls were charged by the minute at a very cheap rate. Just dial into a local connection, get a second dial tone, and then dial the number you want to call. Other services besides long distance (fax, international, etc.) are also available from OneSuite. In checking their site today, it looks like things may have changed a bit, but it also looks like the long distance service is the basically same as I had. Read the details before you commit. http://onesuite.com/long-distance

RE: Cajon Pass (I-15, California) closed by fire today

It looks like the road (I-15) is open today, although Caltrans says southbound is reduced to 4 lanes at Hesperia because of the fire.

RE: RV parking over night along PCH?

The usual photos are of Rincon Parkway, a part of the Ventura County Parks system. There are two other parks near Rincon, both in more traditional campground formats. Info on all 3 areas here: http://www.ventura.org/gsa/parks/beach-front-parks Be sure to read all the fine print, especially for Rincon.

RE: Not just the Gall Boys go Off Road : SLR Caravans

The eastern Sierra service which places a trailer on the site of your choice for the duration of your vacation could use one of these!

RE: Trip report: boondocking in Sonora Pass in a trailer

Another fabulous trip report and another "Thanks for sharing" comment from me. That flat tire story ought to scare away the unprepared masses, of which I am one. Good to put in a plug for Ted's; they helped me out once, too. Great definition of "through" hiking!

RE: trouble with plug-ins for accessories

Replaced all of mine with This type no jiggling just plug in the USB. I have several similar to these. Mine are Belkin brand. They work fine in vehicle or in outlet in coach. When I used the type in the original post, they were always troublesome.

RE: Leveling TC

X2 on the Camco tri-levels. They are the best I've ever had. I've used wood scraps, single-size plastic ramps, lego-thingies, digging a hole to lower a wheel, etc.

RE: Small TT towing with Manual Transmission

thoughts from the olden days....in the 1960's and 1970's, we towed a 15-foot TT all around the US with an old Ford sedan with a 3-speed manual transmission. No problems.
