RE: GSMNP and Gatlinburg fires

From a friend that lives there Fire update: I just evacuated my house. There is a fire by the middle school in pigeon forge. I don't have the news so I have no idea what is being broadcasted but I do have a firefighter in Gatlinburg literally in the middle of the fires who is trying to keep me informed as much as he can. So I will tell you briefly what I know: First off if you've been following my post, Damian is okay! He was trapped in a fire at park vista with no way out. They finally figured out how to get out and saved him and his crew. Let's just say he text me and told me he loved me and that there was no way out of this fire. By the grace of God and all your prayers, he got out of that fire. Thank you so much! Gatlinburg is completely on fire. Everything. Last time I talked to him he was sitting watching as his station was about to burn. He was watching people sit outside their houses as they watched them burn down just sobbing. People are trapped in their houses and rescue very well may not be able to get to them. And that's not from a lack of trying. His words to me tonight were they have called EVERY body they know to call in and they are LOSING. He is tired. They all are sooo tired. If you are in Gatlinburg and not leaving by choice, stop. Leave. You are putting every emergency personnel lives in danger by staying. I haven't heard from Damian in a bit. Please keep them in your prayers. We live in the city of pigeon forge and just evacuated our home. I will update again in about an hour when I can talk more and we are safe away from all the fires. I'm going to ask again, please pray for our emergency personnel. I just had to pack up my entire family and leave Damian behind. Wives and children want them to come home safe in one piece. Please please pray. This will be in our history books. Have you heard anymore from your friend?

RE: Tires for F-150

Quick update on my tires, BF Goodrich A/T T/A KO2.275/60/R20 I made a trip up from Florida to North Carolina over Thanksgiving and I absolutely love my tires. Not only do they look good, they were quiet and I may have lost a mile to the gallon on fuel economy but according to my trucks fuel economy gauge I didn't even lose that much. I'm stoke about these so far. Brulaz, I was told that they are getting just as good of mileage or more on the highway out of these than they are of any of All Terrain tires. If you look on You Tube you can easily find reviews on these tires and I have yet to find a negative one.

RE: Tires for F-150

Well they only had two of the Coopers so he sold me the BF Goodrich A/T T/A KO2.275/60/R20 Hopefully they are not too much AT we will see. The salesman said that they are good tires. Again we will see. Thanks for the replies

RE: Tires for F-150

Thanks guys, I looked at the Michelin LTX M/S 2's but they were a little pricey. I'm going to try these and if they don't produce, I will suck it up next time and get the Michelins. Happy Thanksgiving

RE: Bahia Honda

I would call the park itself to be on the safe side. Some can and some can't.

Tires for F-150

Its time that I purchase some new tires for my F-150. I'm looking at a set of Cooper Discoverer ATP, anyone running these and how are they? Are they too much AT for highway driving? Thank You

RE: Good place to overnight near Quincy / midway , Florida

I would stop earlier, I suggest Falling Waters State Park, right off I-10 and only 18 a night. Those areas you mentioned are not the best in the area.

RE: Old Faithful?

Call them, you will have better luck, doesn't hurt to ask. Not sure they can accommodate a rig your size but I do know they have double sites where you unhook and pull your TV right next to your rig. I know the dates we were looking at on the website said that they were full, I called after someone here suggested I do so and sure enough not only did they have a site for me but the days too. The lady was really nice, nothing like Reserve America, this lady told me everything, even suggested what gate to come in at. good luck

RE: Sound but no picture on my DVD player

Update, sorry it took so to get back, but I took it back in to the shop since it was still under warranty, come to find out they had the cable in the wrong spot, he told me it was just like the one you have at home. They had the cable plugged in the video in instead of the video out. that's all it was geeesh! Thanks to all that responded.

RE: Honda generator 3000is Carb replacement

Ok, I put SeaFoam in it, at first it wouldn't hold a load but it did run. So I put a small load bathroom vent and some lights, I ran that till some of the hunting went away. Now after two hours I can put my A/C without any problems. Its running pretty good now, hunts a little now and then but its clearing up Thanks for the advice. I'm going to let it run a few hours. :)

RE: Trip Report: The Perfect Family Trip, Northwest 2016

Thanks guys. Regarding lunch. On this entire trip we ate out a total of ONCE (a Chinese place in Cody). We always pack picnics. It saves money, sure, but that's the third reason we do it. The first is that lunch becomes part of the park experience for us. The second is that it saves time. For instance, on the Northwest loop of Yellowstone, there is a fairly long unpaved road that you can take that meanders through the rolling hills. We drove until we were far from anyone and stopped there for lunch. I'll post those pics in the next section. Most of the time we have no trouble finding picnic tables. The main map for Yellowstone shows where you can find them. Once we waited about 15 min for one to become available. All other times, our truck tailgate is a great picnic spot. We can put it where we want it and it is always available! LOL We didn't do it on this trip, but on our last trip we brought the Coleman grill and grilled burgers and stuff while touring the parks. I would think that in the majority of parks (at least the ones we've been to), eating lunch at restaurants is either not an option or you pay dearly for the time it takes to leave the good stuff to find food. Hope that helps. Thanks so much for your quick response, can't wait to hear more and to see more pics. :)

RE: Trip Report: The Perfect Family Trip, Northwest 2016

Thank You for your trip report, we are headed up there next May and are really enjoying your trip! Looks as tho ya'll had a great time. I do have a question tho, you said that ya'll ate lunch while out touring the four loops as you put them. Did they have picnic tables along the side of the road where you could pull over and eat your lunch? Just curious thanks again for all your work you're doing, keep it going...

RE: Yellowstone Madison CG to Cody Day trip

There is a tunnel just West of Cody, at the Buffalo Bill Dam, but as I said, it's of no consequence, RV's of all sizes & descriptions use it all the time. http://images61.fotki.com/v249/photos/7/1474187/13835224/photo11-vi.jpg height=450 width=600 Ok great, thank you

RE: Yellowstone Madison CG to Cody Day trip

If you are doing a day trip, why are you pulling the TT? Without the TT, it's still a pretty long trip that will take most of the day. Leave very early in the morning, 6:00 am or so and go to Cody. Then, after you get done with your sightseeing in Cody, it's a long trip back and will take you three or so hours. So, plan on a full day away from camp, but it will be worth it to see the Buffalo Bill Museum and other things Cody has to offer. Well I was trying to decide if I could do it as a day trip first but it sounds as tho it would be a very long day so then I started contemplating on pulling my TT over and just staying a night there in Cody before starting back home. While researching on another site I came across someone talking about a tunnel and a very steep grade near the East gate. That's why I was asking, sorry if I confused anyone, I'm confused myself.

KOA's in General

Haven't stayed in too may KOA's actually the only one I can think of is the one that's in Townsend TN. We usually try to stay in State parks cause we like the nature part of them but we are planning our longest trip yet up to Yellowstone next May and will need some RV parks just for the night. I was wondering how your experience has been with them. I see that they can get pricey which is a downer but other than that they look decent. Can you elaborate on your experiences? Thank You
