RE: Camping on the beach in southern CA

Not ON the beach but VERY close is Jalama Beach County Park. Take a look on Google Maps satellite view.

RE: Phoenix area parks?

Looks like the only county park that has dates available is Pleasant Lake. Too far removed? Lots of sites very hard to level in if memory serves me correct.

RE: Returning Phone Messages

I see it differently. If you're running a business that is open from 9-5, answer the phone. In this day and age, it's pretty simple to link a business phone to whatever phone you're walking around with, even if you're doing repairs in the park or helping a camper at their campsite. At the end of the day, switch it back to the answering machine to handle after hour calls. When you do, take the time to review them a few minutes before you open for business. On occasion we'll be on the road and select a couple of campgrounds from RV Park Reviews, the night before and then call them the next morning while driving, to see if they have room for the night. It's frustrating to get an answering machine and then have to wait hours for a call back. Sure, you can plan ahead, but often when just travelling, you don't always know how far you'll drive that day. Managed Retail store for close to thirty years and my policy on the phone was very simple customers in the store more important than the one on the phone. Then AS SOON as there are no customers in the store start returning phone calls. Think about it you are trying to check in after a long day and you stand there while they are talking on the phone.

RE: American Southwest trip thoughts

Mesa Verde in SW Colorado is pretty cool if you haven't seen it yet. Native American cliff dwellings that you can tour. We were pleasantly surprised by it and will remember it for sure! 1 day would be enough there. X3 for Mesa Verde IMHO would drop Grand Canyon to one night and then have one day for Mesa Verde and a day for the Durango Silverton Railroad. Then vist the Royal Gorge on your way to Pueblo.

RE: Traveling in North Dakota

From a oil field brat if oil is below $100 a barrel you are good to go if above probably not.

RE: Glacier National Park

We stayed at the KOA in West Glacier with our FW. It is a very nice clean park that is well run. It's close to the Glacier Park entrance too. I'd recommend it. Jim X2 and if you are traveling with a dog they have a dog walking service so you can take the red bus tour, which picks up at the office, and they will walk your dog while you are gone.

RE: Pulled over and harassed in texas

Do not mount your GPS on your windshield it is illegal in many states and some such as Arizona it is only legal if mounted on the windshield in the bottom left corner. Dash mounts are legal. A GPS mounted on my windshield very bottom center was the "reason" I was finally given by a Arizona Highway Patrol for being stopped on I40. Received warning ticket only. We believe the reason for the stop was the vehicle had Colorado plates. Have had several people we know from Colorado claim they get stopped for this reason when they drive out of state.

RE: Fuel Station Tank

We are looking at switching from a motorhome to a trailer in the future. If we do it will be a toy hauler so that we can have the built in generator not for hauling toys. With the heat we deal with in this part of the country we want to run the generator so we can run the AC as we travel. This way if we want to stop for lunch it will be cool and when we set up at the end of the day it will be cool and not have to try to cool down before it is comfortable. Also thinking of a small chest freezer in the toy area. In addition gas stations in some of the place we go are few and far between so it would be nice to have the gas for the truck if needed.

RE: End to 101 service from DIRECTV?

Help me understand this about SD. In my stick house, I have 2 HD and 1 SD receiver from Direct. I'm soon to get a portable sat and know that I can only receive SD with a portable from Direct. I had planned on using the Current SD as my portable receiver for the portable dish. Is this thread indicating that my soon to be portable dish be obsolete? Yes and No. If you go with the King Quest portable it is set up for Direct TV SD only however you can add a UC 1000 controller that will allow the King Quest to receive Dish HD.

RE: Portable Automatic Satellite to use with Direct TV

Keep in mind, whatever you chose, it will be useless by no later than 2019 when "experts" speculate that DirecTV will no longer broadcast SD. Solid Signal Forum Thanks for that info. This I have found out is a big reason for going with the King Quest since you can get a UC 1000 controller that will allow the King Quest to receive Dish HD

Portable Automatic Satellite to use with Direct TV

So to my understanding if I want a Portable Automatic Satellite to use with Direct TV Standard definition my choices are either the Winegard Carryout G2 or the King Quest. Here are my questions: Is this correct or are there others? What are the pros and cons to the different systems? From users what are your opinions of the system you have? Thanks for your assistance.

RE: finding rv parks and rv resorts

I just use Google maps zoom in on the area I am interested in and search for rv parks or campgrounds. Then use RV park reviews and or Good Sam's to research my selections. Some of our favorites up the coast: Jalama Beach County Park Morro Dunes RV Park Montana de Oro State Park Moss Landing KOA great overnight stop and for going out whale watching. Wright's Beach Campground Willits KOA great overnight stop and great if you have kids Harris Beach State Park Oceanside RV Resort Coos Bay Beachside State Park OR Yachats Sea Perch RV Resort Pacific Beach State Park WA

Mount Rushmore to Colorado

Just want to share about a great overnight stop if you are on your way from Mount Rushmore area to Colorado. It is B.J.s Campground in Lusk WY. Very clean, level pull thru sites and nice small city park across the street that is great for walking the dog and or kids on the playground. Be sure to fill up before leaving Lusk as gas stations are far apart in that part of the country.

RE: Reservation blues!

If you are wanting to stay at popular spots you need to make reservations. Example any campground actually on the beach. Also for holiday weekends.
