RE: Asthma in Arizona

Lived in AZ nearly 20 years and have never met anyone with Valley Fever or AZ induced Asthma. As one who gets 5 allergy shots a week, I was sicker from my allergies from where I move 20 years ago! If you have or get Asthma, you can and will suffer from it in many other locations outside of AZ. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Extraterrestrial Highway - Area 51 Planning

A must is a lunch at Rachel at the al e in What your fuel level! Yes, Lunch at The Little A'Le"Inn in Rachel is a must. Friendly and the food is good. Also, you must stay overnight(boondocking) in the gravel lot across the street. It was fun if not a little creepy :) Have to agree, great boondocking across from the restaurant but the food is good at best. But it is a bucket list stop! Go for just the burger! NO ATT wireless service and the wifi provided is only inside of the restaurant. The highway itself is not any different than any other in Nevada except the sign on the highway. Yes we took lots of pics! rocmoc n AZ

RE: AZ to WA avoiding steep hills

Here is a site I use that provides the flattest route between two point. Most of the time the site is pretty accurate. https://www.flattestroute.com/ rocmoc n AZ

RE: Avoid mission crossing on Jan 7 and nogales on Jan 22

Being an Arizona Resident that lives close to Nogales and crosses often I would not avoid. Even a 10+ RV caravan is only a small percentage of the daily traffic thu KM21. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Are we having an early snowbird season?

I've only quickly reviewed the responses but don't believe I am seeing a consensus one way or the other. Does any club or organization keep more accurate tabs on this that are reported in a timely way to be useful? We are late starters this year and don't know what to expect of park availability particularly while getting to our destination (Arizona from Ohio). Had hoped to spend three to four weeks getting there however early winter weather and now the threat of over crowded parks has us hesitant to get going. Just call some RV Parks / Resorts you are interested in staying at. rocmoc n AZ

RE: ARCO TOP TIER GASOLINE

All ARCO TOP TIER GASOLINE / FUEL is PEMEX Fuel. No diff as discussed on the bajanomad forum for some time. There has been a number of Arco stations in Baja for a while. Except near the USA / MX border and Baja Norte where the fuel comes from Texas. Of course I use Gas Buddy Top Tier Fuel. When the app actually can find cheaper fuel in Mexico, then there will be progress. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Snowbirds' impact on the local economy.

Surprisingly, a lot of Mexicans come across the US border to shop in the crowded malls in South Texas because they can't get the same quality products in their own country. Our appliances and building materials are top grade and there's even a Mercedez dealership that seems to be doing well. As far as Snow Birds bringing money into the valley, locals like to say they change their T-shirts as often as they change a dollar bill. The valley does quite well with their own home grown Texans whether they come from the Valley or come down from Austin, Dallas and the like to spend money fishing out of Padre Island or to just hang out on the beach. Not necessarily true. Same quality and sometime better but COST is higher. There is a Walmart in Nogales, AZ and Nogales, Son, Mx with the same or comparable products. Electronics and big ticket items are most often higher priced. Food (quality better) & Meds less cost in Mexico Walmart. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Easiest to service RV in Mexico?

I would rather depend on Davids advise than some others.. Why? The Old Guard has made many more trips and spent more time in Mexico including myself. Just wondering! rocmoc n AZ

RE: Easiest to service RV in Mexico?

The Old Guard gets Nasty! For us our '97 Holiday Rambler Cat 3126 Class A (36 foot with no slides) is ideal. This engine is in use all over Mexico in Work Trucks. Can use any diesel fuel and is reliable. We carry a sep belt, filters, one mounted & one unmounted 22.5 spares and our own engine fluids. Also carry spare water pump for drinking water and that is about yet. Only problem is I think I am aging faster than the rig, LOL! rocmoc n AZ

RE: Bears ear and Grand staircase are losing ground

These areas were under BLM before, were they used often for recreational purposes? YES, local BLM office in Monticello has a GREAT map of the area showing all the trail from Jeep to ATV (55" only) and campgrounds. We enjoyed the area before and after, No Change in use for Recreation. This is for mining & oil. Some of the best ever Cinnamon Rolls in Blanding & Milk Shakes in Monticello. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Reef Inflation Puerto Penasco

Right now in So Cal the rates for RV park space goes from 64 usd to 255 per night. Crazy I know but the parks are almost always full in season Makes it a good deal only if you live in California, Still a BAD deal if you live else where! That is the reason we have not been to California in YEARS. Too many other states & places are better and less expensive. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Reef Inflation Puerto Penasco

But it's still less expensive than the US, and it's paradise! Not cheaper than the US if you enjoy Boondocking and National Park Campgrounds. That is the downside of Mexico, we are totally self-contained including Solar but boondocking is not as available (note as Chris) in Mexico or a National Park System. Heat/warm weather is the #1 draw for us. Everything else is icing on the cake. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Toll Question

Rule of thumb is double your projected fuel cost and you will not have much left over after the tolls and actual fuel cost. rocmoc n AZ

RE: Reef Inflation Puerto Penasco

Sadly from Rocky Point on to the West and down South to San Felipe and Gonzaga Bay the rates have gone thu the roof. Gonzaga Bay hotel room rates have doubled for a nothing room with only a few hours of AC a day (power is provide on a generator). Camping on the beach rates have also doubled (no hookups). Prices have been greatly influenced by Mexico Lite Rvers from California & Phoenix. The prices are cheaper than what they pay in CA & Phoenix so they pay, pay, PAY. Law of supply and demand, if people would stop going/paying then the price would come down. Operating cost have not increased enough to justify the huge rate increases, just a chance to make more dollars. On Edit, guess I should add Tucson Mexico Lite Rvers. rocmoc n
