RE: CA to WA questions

I know you prefer State parks, I have always found them hard to plan for, so I will offer a few private sites we visited this summer with the 9 year old grandtwins. Benbow Valley KOA in Garberville will wonderful. Large spots, a golf course next door (I don't play) but it meant no airport/train/etc. Minutes from the Redwoods. Along the Oregon coast, Gold Beach is great. We stayed at Turtle Rock RV. Rustic but large and lovely, with plenty of places to run or hike. Gold Beach has the speed boats up the river, and plenty of fishing, you can cast from the campground. Loved the Olympic Peninsular, spent a day at the State Park just hiking (walking), beautiful, we again stayed at Port Angeles KOA, a newly refurbished KOA that was great and many improvements were in progress. We stayed at the Seattle/Tacoma KOA, crowded small but clean campground, but it is really one of the few games in town. Best part, it was only a couple of miles from the Boeing Museum and Skunk Works. This is not to be missed, more than just a flight museum, it is a well presented time capsule of avionics around the world. The kids loved it. Better than we expected. Like others say, Portland is just another dirty city. My youngest lived there for a year and returned to Los Angeles years ago. There is really not much for kids to see, just a city known for it's weirdness. Yes, they have VooDoo Donuts, but they are not really worth the hour wait in line. Not a place to drive the RV. The Columbia River Gorge, on the other had, is a great drive. Spend a couple of hours at the dam, where you can see the salmon jump up the ladders, and the hatcheries. Then there are miles of waterfalls along the way, best seen in a car, as parking is tight, but if your into walking the RV is OK, you will just have to walk back a lot. Up in that area there is a trout farm in the Troutdale area. Many acres with 9 large ponds, stocked with trout of various sizes. You get real fishing poles, and of course you pay for what you catch. However the prices were less than market price for trout, and they were beautiful delicious fish. Unlike some trout farms, these guys were not starving and going for an empty hook, the kids actually had to work a bit to catch 2 each. It is also a lovely park area, bring a picnic lunch, plenty of parking and an easy turnaround. Hope this helps, enjoy

RE: U.S. tells citizens not to travel to five Mexican states

Just wondering what would happen if the State Department issued warnings to tourists entering the USA using the crime rate is many US cities? Heading to Puerto Vallarta next month, hotelling it. Can't wait.

RE: Can you back out once you place a deposit ....guidance?

Look and your contract, look at state law. As for not taking delivery, the dealer may claim to have lost a second sale as you tied up the inventory. Just don't count on anything offered by us wonderful people as fact! We all give our best opinion, but in reality it is up to you and the dealer to work things out.

RE: Colorado Campground???

We enjoy Durango, and have stayed as AspenRose a few times. Lovely campground, watch the morning Silverton train, which is a great family experience. Day trips to Masa Verde. My daughter took her RV and based at Mesa Verde this summer and said the KOA there was excellent. A day trip to Farmington New Mexico is also nice, lots of Indian museums, and a nice casino. Another choice is Estes Park, beautiful, fantastic, high elevation makes it hard to breath for the first day or two...not so much for the kids, but it was well worth it. You really can't go wrong in Colorado.

RE: Month to month RV parks, Salt Lake City, UT

We've visited Salt Lake City KOA twice, it is lovely and the staff is excellent. Adjacent is a very large long term campground, I believe operated by the same people. The roadways are adjoining. Give them a call.

RE: Hwy 550 from Montrose, CO to Durango, CO

DON'T DO IT! Highway 550, the Million Dollar Highway was featured on a TV show, the World's Most Dangerous Highways. It was many years ago that we drove that road, before the show, in a 38ft HolidayRambler with a toad. My knuckles are still sore. Sharp turns on a grade, no guard rails, narrow in places, trucks coming down the hill at you, as they know the route and travel it routinely. If you have a problem there are no turnouts, no viewpoints large enough for a rig. It is just not a fun drive. That said, once you take the long way around to Durango, like the I-25, do drive the 550 in the car. It is scenic, and the towns of Ouray and Silverton are fun. So, just my humble opinion from a long past very scary drive, just don't do it.

RE: November in Texas?

Texas is a rather BIG state, and RV site availability in the Northern part might not be seriously impacted. From my experience with the Northridge Earthquake, which affected a much smaller area, RV parks and hotels were in high demand for about 18 months for displaced families and service employees. God Bless Texas, and God Bless the USA.

Sales pitch

Has anyone purchased from or dealt with BlueDogRV.com? They claim a lifetime warranty. Somehow seems too good to be true. So, any comments. Thanks.

Shopped at Valencia CW today

I stopped by CW Valencia today to do some shopping and use my free money sent when I renewed. I must say, I was impressed. The isles were rearranged giving the store a nice clean look. Of course, that means I could not find anything, but the staff were plentiful and helpful. On the down side, the depth of RV items is still lacking for a go-to-first RV store. I needed a new propane hose and they only offer hoses for the newer tanks with external threads. Even if they cannot stock everything it would be nice if they could establish a central supply for those harder to find or match product. But that's not the point of my comments, I wish to complement the Valencia store for cleaning up it's act.

We enjoy and seek out KOAs when traveling, especially when we take grandchildren. Planned activities, pancake breakfasts, well stocked stores, pool, spa, level sites (usually) and consistently maintained to standards. Sure, some are just adequate, most are nice, and some are exceptional. But if you haven't noticed the prices of everything is going up. KOA's often have significant staffing, and salaries are going up, and benefits are becoming standard. Anyway, I like KOA.

RE: Helping disabled wife and the law? Rest area sign.

Similarly, I announce myself when I enter a rest facility with my wife, or assist her at a store dressing room. American Disabilities Act (ADA) does give legal protection, but does not protect you/us from idiots. I've never been put in a situation like you describe, and a response of "thank you for your cooperation" has usually been sufficient.

RE: Hwy 101 In Oregon

Just drove that way a couple of weeks ago, no problem. Do fill up before the 101 or when you see a good size fuel stop. Access for big rigs are few and far between on the 101. There are enough, just start looking when you are 1/2 down.

RVIA Pomona too expensive

Just received my email invitation to the RVIA Pomona RV show. This year it will be $15 per person, it doesn't mention the parking at Fairplex which starts at $10 or more. With so many RV dealers in the Los Angeles area offering free "shows" or just having a regular presents, not sure how many will pay $40 a couple or more a family to walk in the heat and see 1,400 RVs, only a handful in the type of interest.

RE: Does anyone know of a program similar to Streets & Trips?

I still use S&T on my home computer and laptop. I keep looking but have yet to find anything as easy to use (I don't do change well). Since we use it for vacation travel, I just print out the final trip plan. We then navigate with our Verizon phone GPS program. Along the way we search with iExit and iExit Truck. Other programs I have seen at Rallies overlay too much information. I don't want MPG, $, etc. I just like the click on a location and add it to the destination. It would be nice if it actually gave the distance between points, but I still remember my basic math, so I can subtract without too much difficulty. Please post if you ever find the perfect S&T replacement. T

RE: Brake buddy keeps blowing cigarette fuse

When I had a BB I called and they sent a direct battery connection at no charge. After a year I still found the BB cumbersome so I now use ReadyBrake. But anyway, call BrakeBuddy support, they were very helpful.

RE: blocking phone numbers

The person who develops an effective screen will make a fortune. I get at least 6 calls a day on the house phone, and now we are getting a few on the cells. On the cell I block the number, but often I will get the same cold call later from a different number...I don't know how many blocked numbers I can keep in memory, might need a bigger card. It is a problem.
