RE: Durango Colorado

We were in Durango last June. Suppose to stay at Junction Creek CG, maybe the park you are looking at, and did not. Route to park is dirt, major dust (could not even till what color our toad was after driving the road) and UP switchbacks. After we got there IMHO the reviews of the park are overstated. We cancelled our reservation and left. Went to Walmart and there are signs all over the place NO Overnight Camping. So we gave up and continued on to Angel Peak just south of Bloomfield, NM. Can be found on freecampsitedotcom and was a great camping location overlooking the Badlands. We had been to Durango years ago but it isn't what it use to be. Overran tourist trap now, IMHO! Beautiful location but truly is loved to much now by tourist. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Snowbird park recommendations?

If you have off-road toys you can stay at the parks in Amado, AZ The OP wants to walk to stores. It would be a looooong walk from Amado. :) Yes I did READ that but threw in the additional info as most kids will get bored fast in a Snowbird Park so just maybe they have or can get off-road toys. My boys would have hated staying in a Snowbird park as well as myself today. Just trying to provide an alternative! Easier to drive to stores than keep young people entertained, if they are outdoorsy. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Quartzsite 2018

Just traveled thu Q today from the North 95 out 10 East. A few but not a lot of Campers yet. Most of the CampHost were in place in the 14 day areas. A few RV Sales have brought in RV but mostly still dead, but it is early. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Snowbird park recommendations?

Having stayed at Las Vegas Oasis, there is NOTHING in the rest of the SouthWest that comes close!!! Since I live in AZ and have traveled most of the SouthWest, you are going to have to forget about Green & Lush in the Winter, Monsoon Season Maybe. If you have off-road toys you can stay at the parks in Amado, AZ, http://www.rvparkreviews.com/regions/arizona/amado/de-anza-rv-resort-98 and leave from the park with your toys. Good luck! rocmoc n AZ

RE: Buying Tires in Mexico

I have always carried mounted spares and unmounted spares when in Mexico. Two mounted spares and one unmounted when we had a triple axle 5er and one mounted and one unmounted for the Motorhome. I did have to use all of my spares one time on the 5er. rocmoc n AZ

RE: California Route 139

Have driven many times over 40 year including with our Motorhomes (current big rig Diesel Pusher). NO problem! If you can't drive this road you shouldn't be driving an RV. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Southeren New Mexico B. L. M. Camping

Southwest has plenty of BLM & National Forest Lands. We boondock in the summer in NM so our sites would be too cold. One you can check that maybe OK is Bill Evans Lake just West of Silver City. Check out this site or more, https://freecampsites.net/#!(32.42443,+-107.02881) rocmoc n AZ

RE: Wondering about impact of Harvey and Irma

The 400 parks of the Rio Grande Valley were untouched by the hurricane and flooding. Come see what you are missing. Warmer, friendlier and greener than AZ.You're a moderator and you just slammed AZ and the people of AZ? Not a good thing to do; looks bad on your part. I've always been a strong supporter of TX and we vacation in TX. I would never talk down TX to build up AZ. Thanks for nothing, moderator. If telling the truth is a "slam", then so-be-it. Truth is AZ does NOT have bugs in the winter, Texas & Florida DO! This winter after the heavy rains both are going to be worst than normal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_4Nrz4gMIU rocmoc n AZ

RE: Refused entry with a truck & camper

Moisheh -- " I doubt that anything affecting a few RVers is important to the Gov." I'm curious, are you a US citizen; and if so, are you involved in your local, state, and federal political process? Again, if so, do you spend enough time involved in that process that the people who represent you know you by your first name and you theirs? Which government is it? Certainly not the US government--when something as insignificant as a few US citizens gaining a permit to march in Charlottesville, VA to protest the removal of a stupid statue that has been there for eons and the issue blows up like a balloon to become an international event in the media and the US Congress. Also, if you are an involved US citizen, you also know the mid-term elections are coming up. Now, again, which government is it? Moisheh has been traveling & living in Mexico for nearly 4 DECADES and myself traveling in Mexico for more than a decade. Tho Mexico is not neither of our home Countries there is not a shortage of Mexico knowledge and Moisheh is one of the most knowledgeable on this site. I do know Moisheh's name and this has nothing to do with race or politics, just real world experience. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

RE: Is your S&B the Land of Hard Work?

One reason we have cut most trips to 3 weeks. For us, multiple 3 weeks trips are working better as we can return and keep the B&M in good shape. Works for us because we are already in the SouthWest. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Starting to plan an Alaska trip what are the boon docking

Do a search on youtube. There are a couple of good channels of the journey with boondocking locations. Here are a few, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiCG0ehE-Zc9GnwCcFqtAhw https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtA9_KrZQLVzUN_OFovA8iA https://www.youtube.com/user/gonewiththewynns You will have to search their channels for their Alaska trips. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Negative dew points in AZ

Really not a problem. We run the evaporative / swamp cooler until monsoon season then switch over to AC. Ave daily temps drop when monsoon season starts. House currently 75 degree with 31% humidity and 102 degrees 12% outside. Today high suppose to be 105+. When you jump out of the pool at 2 - 12% humidity and a little breeze, It is COLD! Would rather be here! Work in the morning when it is cool. Woke to 61 this morning. Took a bike ride, worked in the garden and now watching motocross & swim after. rocmoc n AZ
