RE: Is there anyone that just will not go to private campgrounds

Two MHs and two TTs over 30+ years and many campgrounds I can count only 15-20 private ones we have stayed at and only did that as a last resort.

RE: Is Mt. Hood, Oregon worth a couple of days?

Mt Hood Villages in Brightwood is a decent place to stay with full service about 20-30 minutes from the Lodge.

RE: Rapid City here we come.

You probably know the Sturgis Bike rally is going on now. Think is it is over the 14th but there will be a lot of congestion all over the area for a few days even after that. The Fam Camp at the base has been expanded and is good you may have reservations, which are hard to get during the Rally is going on.

RE: New to me '08 R-Vision Trail-lite 30BH new WH?

You might try the RVision Forum someone probably has added a 10 gal tank to TT since it was a popular model. http://r-visioncamping.org/

RE: Anyone do any Ancestry.com DNA tests?-RESULTS IN!

Having taught some gennetics at the local diploma mill many years ago and kinda stayed up as best I could with the field expending so fast. The results are only as good as the data base they come from.As the available data bases expand this will be a great tool for ancestry. Better for males than females (unless you are looking to find out your EVE closness.I am cocerned about how careful these labs are since sample contamination is common with DNA. Also for anything medical my advise is consult an expert before taking any action. Also to be careful which Company you go with since some of them are making really rediculous claims. Middle European ancestry isalso a problem since there was so much migration in that area. That said I am going to have mine done then repeat the process in a few years when the data expands.

RE: Newby needs advice

We have never been full time but have been out for extended trips many times. Had two MHs and two TTs none longer than 24 feet but all with different floorplans. The one 24' MH we had was the easiest to live in for long trips, our 24' TT which you could pull without a problem, gets old after a couple weeks. Floor plan in an RV is very important, wife and I need to have enough space to allow privacy when we are doing different things. You should be able to find a TT you can pull that suits your needs but take time to find the right one. There are a lot of great military famp camps we have used over the years.

RE: Avalanche 1500 pulling 5300 lb trailer

Had a 2005 AV with the 5 sp tranny and towed a 5000lb scale weight loaded to go TT for several years without issues. The 2007 has the 7 sp tranny (I think) which should be a better tower but still think you would be pushing the limit. You might try the on line AV towing forum form some of their expertise.

RE: Cost comparison - motorhome vs. travel trailer

We have had a several of each over the years and there are advantages and disadvantages to both. We have never been full time but if we ever would have(to old now) we would have used a MH with toad. For short trips we prefer a TT. If money is a consideration think the TT is the best way. Think it really comes down on how your going to use tour RV.

RE: Air conditioning on a small generator

We have a Honda 2000 and have run two different 13500 units with it. Struggles at high altitude but otherwise no problem.

RE: Travelling through Mt. St. Helens?

Used to work for the Forest service many years ago in Mt Adams Region but have not been back in that area for a few years. You could go through Trout Lake to Randle. Stop at the Ranger Station and they can give you good map and place to see like the ice caves. Probably still be some tight gravel roads but would be the shortest route. I would take a Class C through it's a very scenic drive and there are campgrounds on the way. The trip through the Columbia River Gorge is very scenic and offers many places to explore for the Kids.

RE: moles

Very interesting animal. Moles primary food source is worms, they don't get along with other moles not even their own off spring and live by themselves in their own borrows. They do kill vegetation but only when they destroy the roots when they dig. They like wet or moist soil. If they die another mole will probably take over the borrow. the damage they cause is primarily when they dig their burrows. No easy way to get rid of them unless you have a cat or dog that hunts them. The easiest way to get rid of them is to find a new burrow and insert a poison pellet inside but then if an animal eats the mole it is also poisoned. You can buy a mole trap and set it up in a new burrow and if you are lucky you might even get one. I actually have killed a couple after many tries. If anyone has a way to get rid of these critters I would love to here it.

RE: Camping in Fairborn Ohio

If you cannot stay at the Base Fam Camp you will probably have to drive at least 15-20 minutes from either John Bryant in Yellow Springs or the KOA. There is a Trailer Park in the middle of Fairborn that at one time would take short stays, don't think they do anymore. Yellow Springs is a nice little town and the State Park is OK if you can get electric -been very hot and humid recently.

RE: Mayfield, Ky to Portland Oregon

The freeway through NE and WY is mostly flat and easy driving all four lane using 70 and then up to 80. Climbing really starts west of Cheyenne and cross winds can be a problem. There are a good choice of decent State Parks west of Omaha (arch is worth a visit we have used. There is also a Oregon Trail exhibit that spans the freeway that is very interesting. Would not go north to 90 unless you want to visit the Black Hills, but don't go when the Bike Rally is on in early Aug.

RE: Galena, IL

We did not camp but spent some time at a very nice B&B a (Aldrich House)a couple weeks ago. There are two bus tour operations that give tours of the main attractions. Plenty of things to do. President Grant ritered there and the tour of his home is very interesting. Several well done museums that are worth a visit and some good resturants. The wine tasting place on mainstreet also does a good job,very busy place.
rbtglove 07/08/16 08:41am RV Parks, Campgrounds and Attractions

Grew up in the Gorge on the WA side. Go back as often as we can. Everytime see something new. We also like Ainsworth SP nice and close to falls and Crown Point Visitor Center also Mamaloose SP near the Dalles. Also recommend the Book an amazing true story. Think this is a special year (100?) for the old Columbia River Highway which is one of the most scenic drives anywhere but not for big RVs. Beakon rock (a core from volcano) Wa is worth the climb and offers an amazing view. Hood River great town and offers views of wind surfing and there is a nice little county park there. Also a short drive to Mt Hood. So many other things if you will miss if you just drive through on the freeway.

RE: Emerals Ash Borer

Sad Story - If you want to save an Ash tree you have to start at the first signs and even then it doesn't always work. We were quoted $300 to treat one large tree and then another $300 in a couple years with no assurance that it would work. We lost two in our place in OH and there were many taken out on our street. Those who treated had very poor results. We just had two huge Ash trees taken out at our cabin in TN. Think the Ashes and some closely related trees are going the Way of the American Chestnut which was wiped out years ago. Only good thing is Ash makes good fire wood.

RE: Crater Lake - Oregon

Collier, nice sites with full service - well over an hour drive but very scenic and you can see Bald Eagles nesting on the way.

RE: Where to stay in the Smokeys

We have stayed at all or most of the campgrounds in the Park and all are very scenic but none, at least when we were there, had hookups. We like the one near Cades Cove and as I remember it at least had a trailer dump site, Elkmont if memory serves, did not it was a few miles away but it is one of the most scenic and has a nice stream and Ranger talks. Use of generators is only permitted in certain hours. Go to their website and choose the one or ones that are best for your needs, can't go wrong.

RE: Black Hills Gold - Panning (for kids) & Shopping for Jewelry

Wall SD has plenty of shops that sell Black Hills Gold Jewelry, also there is a decent Campground within walking distance to tourist stuff including Wall Drug. There used to be a panning place in Deadwood along with a simulated gold mine tour kids would like. Not sure what is still there haven't been back for a long time since they ruined the town with Casinos. Be careful of low prices on the jewelry there are some fakes that look like the real thing.
