RE: Back to a tent oh my!

Several years ago, we decided that we would like to go down the roads that the 5er could not negotiate. So, we purchased an Xterra and camping gear and were on our way. Had lots of fun exploring all the two tract back roads in Utah and northern Arizona. Then we noticed that there were trails that the Xterra could not negotiate. So, we purchased a RZR, joined an ATV club and started exploring all the Utah ATV trails. Again lots of fun. Now, My husband says that maybe we should think about getting a horse for real back country exploring. At our age(76),I think that's more of a challenge than I want to try.

RE: route from Las Vegas to Panguitch Lake in Utah

The last time I traveled 143 from Parawan there was sign stating "Not recommended for RVs". I recommend 14 over 143 but would take 59 out of Hurricane myself.

RE: Kanab - Provo

I prefer the more scenic drive 89-6. However, 89-20-15 is a viable option. There is a long grade up and down over the mountains on 20, but not that bad. 20 is a very good highway with passing lanes where needed.

RE: Virgin,UT (Zion) to Ruby's at Bryce Canyon

To avoid the tunnel, take UT-9 west to I-15 north to UT-20 east to US-89 south to UT-12 east to Ruby's Inn

RE: Partial closer at Arches NP in Utah, what should I do?

Devils Garden is not rated as one of the best trails in the park. We have visited Arches several times and have opted not to do this trail each time.

RE: UT-14

Very steep and windy. Suggest you take UT20 instead.

RE: boondocking newbe

The first thing we do when we arrive in a new area is to drop by a National Forest or BLM office to get their advice on local camping regulations and likely places to camp. They will also have current information on back-road conditions washouts and such.

RE: Chama, NM

We stayed at the Rio Chama about six years ago. RV park next to the RR station and along side the river. Lots of shade. Nice little bar across from the station.

RE: Utah-north to south trip

Suggest that you head south first before the weather gets hot. Visit Zion than east to Lake Powell. From there move over to San Juan county and visit Monument Valley on the way. In San Juan County, stay at the Cadillac RV Park in Bluff and visit Hovenweep Natl Monument, Valley of the Gods, Natural Bridges Natl Monument. Then move over to Cortez, CO and visit Mesa Verde. From Cortez, move to Moab and visit Canyonlands and Arches. Plan on staying at least a week there. From Moab, move to Torrey to visit Capital Reef. From there go to Bryce before heading back north.

RE: Is Top of the World Hwy paved

It is paved from end to end. I remember there being a small rock wall on the low side that may stop a majority of vehicles from accessing unpaved ground. When did that happen?????

RE: rt 14 east of cedar city

We always use hwy 20. Less curves and steep grades than 14. However, still requires low gear.

RE: Sacramento to Zion/Bryce Which Way To Get There

Stay with US-50 across Nevada and Utah to Salina UT. Pick up US-89 and travel south to UT 12 for Bryce and UT-9 for Zion. It will be very hot in Zion during June. Therefore, stay at higher altitude in a campground east of Zion and day trip into the park.

RE: Hwy 550 Bloomfield to Bernalillo, NM

Fairly straight and flat 4 lane. Have not driven this route for several years, so cannot comment on current road condition. New Mexico roads are usually well maintained. I would not hesitate hauling our 5th wheel over it. 550 north of Bloomfield is another question.

RE: Black Rock Road @ I 15 in AZ.

Johnna, I believe I saw what you are talking about. Is that the road that ends out by the airport? The BLM road you are talking about is a little west of the end of the road? Is that public land south of there? No it's about half way between I15 and the Airport. On the north side of the Southern Parkway it's called S River Rd. or Az Strip Rd. On the south side it's BLM 1069 which runs south to join up with county road 5 all the way to Mt. Trumbull School House. Do not attempt to take your MH on 5 east of the School House. Use only 4 wheel drive vehicles on this stretch. Very narrow and steep.

RE: Black Rock Road @ I 15 in AZ.

Black Rock Road runs south for about 3 miles to a gypsum mine. I notice rvs of all kinds dry docking along here. At the mine the road becomes BLM 1009. Although passable, 1009 is not suitable for large rvs. More suitable would be to go to exit 2 (UT7 - Southern Parkway) and travel east for about 3.5 miles to BLM 1069 south. 1069 is a dusty gravel washboard road which is usually in fair condition.
