RE: Oregon-Columbia River Gorge

In the Gorge we use Ainsworth State park very scenic near Multnomah Falls and as mentioned Memaloose State Park near the Dalles great view of the River. Both have full service sites.

RE: Gatlinburg Campgrounds & Trolley questions

We have stayed at Twin Creeks several time. Very convenient location on the trolley route, near restaurants and the craft route. Has a dog area, and store. A little costly but worth the price.

RE: Chaco Culture National Historic Park

We went through from north and excited from the south. Very rough both ways takes a long time. We stayed over a couple nights a great experience when the sun sets. Ancient ruins are very near the campground.

RE: Oregan coast

The popular state campgrounds are probably booked but some do have sites for drive ups. We have had pretty good luck getting to a campground around noon and waiting for something to open up. Helps to talk to the hosts. Check the Oregon State site for those that do have non reserve sites some are reservation only.

RE: Info about Chaco Canyon and other sites in NM

I would consider staying at least one night in Chaco Canyon. When the sun goes out and you are in the canyon very close to the ancient ruins it is really an amazing experience. The roads in can be a challenge either direction and are not well maintained but if you go slow it can be done and well worth the effort. Unless things have changed there were no services not even water except for drinking.

RE: Trinity Atomic test site

Was stationed at Holloman back in the early 60s. Had a White Sands Range Badge and visited the Trinity Site several times. There was plenty of the green glass in a big sallow crater still there. It is an element found no place else we were told. There was a huge iron tube that was supposed capture the uranium if the HE went off but the reaction didn't. It was still there because it was so heavy they couldn't lift it to the top of the tower the bomb set on. The metal tower was gone only a few twisted pieces of metal remained. The museum in Alamagordo is very good and has a lot of the history. White Sands is worth visiting.

RE: Trip to west coast

If you want to stay at the more popular campgrounds you do. Check the Oregon state parks for options. We have had some luck without reserving by getting in early afternoon and waiting for an opening. June after school is out you really need to reserve. There are some that have a few non reserve sites and a couple that do not reserve an there are a lot of private parks to choose from but the State Parks are really some of the best..

RE: Finding Water

We've had good luck going into truck stops and asking if we could fill with water - don't remember having been turned down - some have locks but they unlock if you ask.

RE: I'm a Seenager, who knew.

As I get older I frequently think more often about the the "here after" Many times a day I ask myself - What did I come in "here after"

RE: Black Hills, SD

Lived in Rapid city for a few years and have been back many times. We generally stay at the Air Base but think Rafter J is the go to campground. Popular so make a reservation. We didn't think much of the Rapid KOA but it is conveniently located and close to shopping. Avoid early August bike rally as mentioned whole area turns into a huge traffic jam. Deadwood with the gambaling has turned into a tourist place a real shame it was great before. Wall Drug is a tourist trap but a good one and never pretended to be anything else. Crazy Horse is also not what it was and costly but still worth a stop. With only a couple days you won't be able to do all the major attractions but with a little planning you be able to choose the ones that interest you.

RE: Pull behind or Class C

We had two Class Cs and then 3 TTs over the years. Most of the advantages and disadvantages have been discussed but the reason I decided in favor of the TT is when towing with the Class C you can't back up and sometimes unhooking is a real challenge. The last time my wife misread a sign and we got down a dirt road with no place to turn and it was a real challenge and half a day to get out. Also I like the utility of having a truck when home.

RE: Campgrounds near Columbus Zoo in Ohio

Alum Creek State Park would probably be the closest to the Zoo. Nice place

RE: Cincinnati Construction?

We came thru yesterday afternoon from south on 75 in heavy traffic without any problems. No really tight places just some crazy drivers in a hurry.

RE: The Lumber Yard

A lot of people don't realize that when they buy a 2"x4" board it's not a true 2" by 4" in any length.

RE: Gathered dust for 70-some years

My Father worked for Douglas A/C as a mechanic during WW2. I have two knives that he made from worn out files he made during breaks. Hobby shopping on breaks was and is a common thing even in the military, we did it in A/C maintenance and as long as it was within reason no body ever said anything. Course we worked a lot of 12 hr shifts and six day weeks also.

RE: anybody know how to cure this??

I've learned over many years that you always find something in the last place you look for it. So I'm going to start looking in the last place first!

RE: Norris or Cumberland Lake

We have a cabin on Norris Lake near Lafollette TN. If you like a small campground there is a big full service Marina on Whitman Hollow Rd with a few full service sites with a public boat ramp nearby. Nice area good Lake access and fewer people than the other marinas. It is run by Whitman Hollow Marina which has a web site if you want to get more information. www.whitmanhollow.com

RE: For those going to see Eclipse

Trying to determine if it would be a significant difference to travel to our cabin near Knoxville TN which will be very near the full eclipse area or to stay in Dayton OH which is in about the 90% area. Any expert advice as to a simple explanation of the advantage of driving south would be appreciated.

RE: Following Lewis and Clark

My wife,a grade school teacher wanted to do this in the 1990s. We picked the trail up in Omaha and for 3 weeks tried to stay as close as possible to the most traveled routes. We ended up at the site of Fort Clatsop near Astoria OR. In those days it was really pretty hard since there were few markers and many keep out signs. In many places you are miles away from the actual route. Been back over a lot of that route and have found much more tourist friendly in recent years. The Arch in Omaha has good information and the Bridge exhibit over freeway as you enter NE is outstanding. There is or was a web site dedicated to the subject.

RE: Planning Retirement Trips / Deciding on a RV

We started with a used class c and then got a new one but found it hard to do much sight seeing when camped without a tow car. Problem is that have to unhook if you have to back up. We often got blocked into some difficult situations that If all people were considerate should not happen. After 10 years we switched to TTs and never regretted the move in 20 more years. If you were going to stay in one place like a whole season a tow car would make sense but we moved often and generally only stayed a few days at each place. Some campgrounds do rent cars.
