RE: Utah 12

...make sure to drive it with your toad...X2 There are many many great places to see along the UT-12 Scenic Byway that you likely would not want to take your motorhome. Here are a few we enjoyed: Hells Backbone Burr Trail Escalante Petrified Forest State Park Kodachrome Basin State Park Anasazi State Park Calf Creek Falls Scenic Backways off UT-12 Fishlake Scenic Byway Thousand Lake Mountain Road If you want a less stressful alternative for the motorhome, take US-89 North to UT-62. At Koosharem turn right on Brown's Lane. turn right on UT-24 and take that to Torrey/Capitol Reef.

RE: US 191 Flaming Gorge area

We have driven that route in both directions numerous times. There are ten switchbacks in 9 miles just North of Vernal. In my opinion, going North (uphill) is not that difficult. The Southbound decent into Vernal is the potential problem causer. Once you reach the dam, you can go on the East side or the West side of the Lake. The road conditions seem to vary year to year with one route being better than the other. I don't think there is a big difference between the grades of one route over the other.

RE: Advice wanted for RV Park near fly fishing

There is a good chance I will be heading south for the winter and leaving the northern Utah weather behind for a few months. I love to fly fish, but I am having a hard time finding an RV park in a warm location with decent monthly rates close to any good fly fishing streams/rivers...I'm a trout fisherman...In my experience, warm climates and trout fishing do not go together. Tailwater fisheries below dams are the exception. In addition to the dams on the Rio Grande in New Mexico already mentioned, the river below Sumner Lake, NM comes to mind. You will have to watch the weather and road conditions to access the trout streams/rivers in the higher elevations.

RE: New Mexico in October

I'm looking for a camping spot in New Mexico for the middle of October. We would like to be in the mountains or somewhere with a few hiking trails and a possible trout stream. We would prefer full hookups but can live with only electric and water. I'm open to all possible suggestions. Thanks in advanceBy the middle of October, the higher elevations like Eagle Nest, Red River, etc. will be getting cool and at least some of the commercial RV Parks will be ready to close for the season. I am not aware of any trout streams around Cochiti Lake, unless you go Northeast of Santa Fe to the Pecos area. Taos will still be having moderate weather and there are a number of fishing opportunities on the Rio Grande and its tributaries in the area.

RE: Campground locations on route?

As mentioned, there are a number of resources available. In my experience none of them list every campground and RV Park. Some are more complete than others and some are good/better for certain types of campgrounds. Another option, which is the one I prefer, is to do your planning on a computer based mapping program. I prefer this because I do not need an internet connection to look something up or make a change enroute. There are numerous sources like the POI Factory and the Discovery Owners Forum for both free and for a fee data sets of campgrounds. My computer campground database has more locations than any single source I have found yet and I can even add my own entries. Another option that was mentioned was using a GPS. Many of the campground data sets can be downloaded to many GPS units and then will display as icons along your route. If you like Google Earth, you can import gpx files of campground locations and they are stored in your "My Places" folder and can be turned on or off when viewing Google Earth.

RE: Deer Lodge, Montana

...We are looking for a layover place near Deer Lodge and was wondering if it is worth staying a extra to see the area...We enjoyed visiting the Old Montana Prison and Grant-Kohrs Ranch Historic Site near Deer Lodge. If you are headed South on I-15, Bannock State Park is about 113 miles South of Deer Lodge.

RE: Ruidoso N.M. info

83 in the west is about as hot as 65 in the east.Not according to the most widely accepted heat index rating system. 75 degrees with a relative humidity of 100% (dew point 75) feels like 81 degrees. 65 degrees is so low that the chart will not do an accurate calculation. ...Temps are important, that's the main reason for my wife and I leaving NC for the month of August...When staying in an RV in warmer temperatures, shade can be important in keeping the RV comfortable even with an air conditioner running. Trees/shade are much harder to find in the high desert areas than in the forests of the higher elevations. Looking at the satellite photos on Google Earth or Google Maps will give you a good idea about the number of trees/shade in a campground. If the campground is listed in RV Park Reviews, there is usually a link to the map/satellite view of the campground.

RE: Ruidoso N.M. info

...I would choose Santa Fe over Ruidoso... We also like New Mexico. Santa Fe is very nice, but to escape the summer heat I would definitely choose Ruidoso or one of the other higher elevation locations. Santa Fe Average Temp: July 86, August 83 Ruidoso Average Temp: July 80, August 78 The Lincoln National Forest has over 150 hiking trails.

RE: Ruidoso N.M. info

...Ruidoso next summer and we are curious about...things to do...Here are some links to places not too far away: Cloudcroft, White Sands National Monument, Oliver Lee Memorial State Park, New Mexico Museum of Space History, Valley of Fires, Three Rivers Petroglyph Site, Smokey Bear Historic Park, Fort Stanton, Lincoln State Historic Site

RE: NJ to Yellowstone

If your coming back on I-80, the Cabela's in Sidney, NE has a campground, Fort Kearny has a campground, and there is the Great Platte River Road Archway Museum. The Iowa State Fair is August 11-21. Winterset, Iowa is where the movie "Bridges of Madison County" was filmed. It is also John Wayne's birthplace which has a museum. The city of Winterset has a nice campground at the city park. The Amana Colonies are not far North of Iowa City. The Birthplace of Captain James T.Kirk and a Star Trek Museum are not far South of Iowa City in Riverside, IA.

RE: NJ to Yellowstone

When are you planning to leave and how long do you have? Some of the services in Yellowstone start to shutdown after Labor Day as do some National Forest campgrounds. What kinds of things are you interested in? There are lots of possible routes with things to see along the way. After all it is over 2000 miles from North Jersey to Yellowstone by the most direct route.

RE: Best Route From Santa Fe, NM to Kaneb, UT

Make sure you take the short hike to the Newspaper Rock Petroglyph Site when you tour Petrified Forest National Park. Homolovi Ruins State Park is between Holbrook and Winslow not far off of I-40 if you have the time.

RE: From Escapade in VT to FMCA in MA

I don't think they meant finding a free FHU....I think they meant finding a FHU and also a free one.....I think. :)Perhaps, but Days End would still be one of the better sites for finding free places (especially since they are likely Escapees members if attending the Escapade). Another would be the Free Campsites Website.

RE: Best Route From Santa Fe, NM to Kaneb, UT

...There are also more Indian ruins in this area - Tuzigoot Nat'l Monument and Montezuma Castle Nat'l Monument...Just to add a few more to the Sedona list: Palatki and Honaki Ruins, V-Bar-V Heritage Site, Montezuma Well National Monument

RE: Best Route From Santa Fe, NM to Kaneb, UT

There are a lot of possibilities of which Canyon de Chelly is a good one. Another would be to go North from Santa Fe on NM-68 and visit Taos or take US-84 through Abiquiu and visit Ghost Ranch and the Christ in the Desert Monastery. Then head West on US-64 through Chama where there is a scenic railway Then on to Bloomfield and Farmington where there is Aztec Ruins National Monument and Salmon ruins. After Shiprock it would not be that far off route to take a loop North on US-191 to Bluff and then US-163 back to US-160. On this loop you could visit Monument Valley, UT-261 the Moki Dugway, Goosenecks State Park, Hovenweep National Monument, Natural Bridges National Monument, Bluff Fort, South Fork of Mule Canyon and House on Fire, The Valley of The Gods, and the Sand Island Petroglyphs. Once back on US-160, AZ-98 will take you to Page.

RE: From Escapade in VT to FMCA in MA

... We will need one FHU...would like a 'free' stop as well if possible...FHU & free? Try checking the Escapees Days End Directory to see if there are any members that offer such a deal on their property.
