RE: Good Lance commercial video about boondocking

It looks like California. Not sure exactly where. I wish they'd list locations on these videos. Some SUV, Mazda I think, had a TV commercial during the summer that was also great locations probably in California.

RE: Boy, Do I Miss Ful-timing

I've appreciated the wisdom in your posts over the years and hope that such posts will continue. You have a lot of experience to offer.

RE: Limit width of photos so text does not run off page?

On my Mac, if I right-click on an image and choose the Inspect Element option, I can see what you mean - image title and various size tags. There's even a border option. Thanks for the info.

RE: RVing solo

I've been RVing solo, not full time but lots of time, since 1991. My firm belief is that your best weapon is your brain. Be alert to signs of possible trouble and either do not enter or leave before things get bad. I don't think that safety is a gender issue. Be sensible, be cautious, keep your rig in good repair so it doesn't let you down, and get out there and follow your dream!

RE: Wildflowers

There are no guarantees on what will bloom when. One advantage to Joshua Tree is that it has a variety of elevations, so perhaps one will be in bloom and those higher or lower will not. You may, however, have a difficult time finding a campsite in Joshua Tree NP; check the park's webpage for nearby alternatives. Below is a fairly nice list, again no guarantees. The way things are looking today with the huge storm in Northern and Central CA , all of the flower seeds may wash away. http://gocalifornia.about.com/od/topcalifornia/a/california-wildflowers.htm You can get current reports when the time comes some of the links on that page. Always have plan B in mind.

RE: Looking to hire mentor/share expenses for 2-6 weeks

You may wish to experiment with living in a tiny space by setting up a situation where you live in only your kitchen and bathroom where you reside now. Even if you have a washing machine--don't allow yourself to use it for the time frame of the "test". No freezer other than the one in your fridge--and take out all but two shelves in the fridge. Pianotuna beat me to this one. I often recommend such a process for folks with no RV experience who want to just jump full time. This experiment won't cost you anything and you'll be right at home safe. Also, imagine yourself working, driving, enjoying the sights, and maintaining/supplying the RV and the dog all within the same chunk of time. Are you sure you cannot take some long vacations just for travel and some time at homebase just for work?

RE: North to South Rim of Grand Canyon

That is some hike! I actually know people who have done it and survived and gone back for more. Train well and practice with the tents and packs before you go and you'll do fine. Happy Trails!

RE: Huntington Lake, CA, where to dump?

The California Camping site says that some of the private resorts at Huntington Lake have dump stations. Check with them for current info. They may allow you to dump for a fee. http://www.californiasgreatestlakes.com/huntington/huntington_camping.html

RE: Dogtown Lake Campground

Campendium has one review of that campground. Says 2 bars Verizon 4G, 3 bars Verizon 3G. Dated last May. If you often need this sort of info, take a look at Campendium. It's a free site with reviews contributed by people who have actually been there and many of whom apparently need internet or cell coverage for work purposes.

RE: No need to camp to see critters...

Nice! I used to greatly enjoy watching the grey fox family that visited my yard in suburban Chula Vista. Now I live in a mobile home park with a lake that is visited by all sorts of migratory birds. Having wildlife right in our yards can be considered either a colossal pain (mess, destruction, danger) or an opportunity to watch without having to take an expensive trip to see them. Or both. Thanks for sharing your photos.

RE: Explore Western US without an RV

Going on an RV trip, when you really don't know much about RV's might only add RV-related anxieties to your other anxieties. I'm not saying don't do it. Do take the advice of other posters: analyze your anxieties about travel. Perhaps tackle them one at a time. Something like the Caravan Tours mentioned above, or a Road Scholar trip can relieve many types of trip anxiety: Where can I stay? Will I be safe? Will the food/water be safe to consume? How much should I tip? etc. https://www.roadscholar.org/collections/on-the-road/ There are several trips to western national parks listed on the page linked here. You can search for other types of trips, other locations. I've been on half a dozen Road Scholar (formerly known as Elderhostel) trips. They handle all of the lodging issues, including tips, baggage, most of the food. There are knowledgeable guides along on the trip. You can get a private or a shared room. Road Scholar trips are available at all levels from sitting in lectures all day to seriously challenging physical stuff like hiking, skiing, etc. You can go just about anywhere in the world with Road Scholar. Prices are reasonable and most of the other participants have been pleasant and interesting people. Yes, I love my RV and my travels in it, but there is sometimes a time or place for a group trip, too. Best wishes for making your travel dreams come true!

RE: Two new natl monuments: how to give planning input?

As far as I know, there has to be public input. I have attended several USFS planning meetings over the years. They have usually been announced on the forest's web page or via social media. Just googling around this morning, one day after the designation of the new monuments, I found these: Friends of Nevada Wilderness (has a Take Action section) http://www.nevadawilderness.org/gold_butte sitemap for Dept. of the Interior - there may be something here. It does the have the Dept's Strategic Plan. https://www.doi.gov/sitemap Coolmom's info above is better than this..

RE: Reflections on Stroke

Thank you for telling your story. It is good to hear the real human side of things, the what it feels like side. Your story may help the rest of us to stop rationalizing our symptoms and get appropriate help as needed. Best wishes to you for continuing improving health.

RE: CO alarm replacement.

I store my RV with electricity off and battery disconnect off. This turns off the CO alarm. Yours may be wired differently, but it is worth a try.

RE: Little RV in the Wilderness: "Long Shots" of Isolation

These are all from before 2006, of the my pre-Tiger 4x4 RV. I spent one night at each place. All were legal then, but some may not be legal now. Area types (wilderness? national reserve?) and their boundaries change.

RE: Apocalypse Now: Living Off Grid?

Get a solar lantern, one of those little crank-up emergency radios, and a backpacker's water filter. Small, not too expensive, always good to have around for backup.

RE: CB radio vs. cell phone vs. HAM Radio

Why do I need communications? I travel solo and visit remote places which often have no cell service. Two years ago, I broke an ankle at home. If that had happened in one of my favorite camp areas, I would definitely have been a candidate for emergency services. I bought a DeLorme. It works wherever I test it. Hopefully, I will never need it for "the real thing." I have used it for two-way communication of this sort: Q - Where are you? A -At milepost 26. I don't understand what you purchased, Tiger. can you be a bit more specific? I have a DeLorme InReach satellite communicator. Garmin just bought DeLorme. Just google InReach.

RE: CB radio vs. cell phone vs. HAM Radio

...in the lower 48 you're never alone. Even down the roughest dirt road, someone else always comes along. My personal record of unintentionally not seeing or hearing another person or vehicle is 48 hours. 24 hours is not uncommon where I go. Your results may vary.
