RE: Generators, do you get what you pay for?

I found this link comparing a couple of different power sources. The non inverter generator looks pretty bad...

RE: Question: Favorite site in Lost Dutchman SP, AZ?

I spent a couple of days there last December - a couple of pages with photos starts here (Lost Dutchman). My site was fairly level side to side, not as level front to back. Unless you pull into the site backwards, the utilities (and picnic table) are on the wrong side. A beautiful park with some great individual & ranger guided hikes.

RE: ideas for parks and sights in eastern CA. highway 395

If it is open, another great place to eat along 395 is the Virginia Creek Settlement in Bridgeport. I don't know how they survive out in the middle of nowhere, but the food was excellent. They are a couple of miles north of the Bodie Ghost Town.

RE: ideas for parks and sights in eastern CA. highway 395

If you are going as far south as Lee Vining (east entrance to Yosemite) I'd suggest a stop at Mono Lake (I prefer the South Shore), the Bodie Ghost Town and a drive around the June Lake Loop south of Lee Vining.

RE: If You Had Use Of One Good Hand...

A n inexpensive alternative to commercial "helping hands" is to crimp alligator clips to soft iron wire which is stuck in a drilled hole in a wooden base. Very flexible, cheap, and easy to customize to fit the situation. I used these all the time, even with two working hands...

RE: Recommendations on a Small and Light TT

While maybe smaller than you are looking for, I travel with an Escape 17B with the optional front storage box. That, plus outside access door to the under seat storage area gives you lots of room. Total weight loaded for a long trip is 3010 lbs, 340 lbs tongue weight. No problem towing with a V6 RAV4 (56,000 miles so far). http://lakeshoreimages.com/images88/ASC_5645.jpg width=640 If the 17 is too small, they also make a 19' & 21' as well as a small 5th wheel.

RE: Hill City SD to Devils Tower, WY

I've stayed at both the KOA & the Belle Fourche River Campground in the park. Depending on your site, the view from either can be great. While there is the advantage of hookups at the KOA, I prefer the in park campground. For a real treat, drive up West Road (a gravel road on the left on the way up to the Visitor Center) to the Joyner Ridge Trailhead at night.

RE: Which Propane Adapter/Hose?

The 1 lb bottles produce high pressure propane. Devices designed for them either do not use a regulator or have one built in, so you probably want the second hose set (the one without a regulator).

RE: Kartchner Caverns State Park

If you like caverns & are going through western Texas, be sure to stop at the Caverns of Sonora. The most beautiful formations I seen!

RE: Need help finding a portable heater.

I am using an old (1986) Pelonis Disk Heater that has a variable speed fan & heating output. Set it for a temperature & it comes on at full wattage (1500) then, as the trailer warms up the fan & wattage drop. Usually, it gets almost silent & draws around 300 watts when the nighttime temperatures are in the 40's, although last night when it was in the 20's, it ran at about 1/2 speed & around 800 watts. Still much quieter than the furnace. I believe they are still making a model that works the same - This one at Amazon looks like mine...

RE: Refrigerator not working in cold weather

One suggested solution is to put a 100 watt light bulb inside the lower refrigerator vent.

RE: Darn Cold

Last year on November 15th I was in Douglas, AZ and it was 78°F. Today I'm here in Oswego & it is snowing & 33°F. Something is wrong!

RE: How to set up a blog or website?

If you want templates that let you plug in text & photos, it is had to beat Google's Blogspot. It is free and a number of free templates are available. There are additional templates available that are more complex, but some require purchase. A couple others that I've seen used by RVers are Wordpress & MyTripJournal. If you want complete flexibility, you can build your own using software such as Adobe's Dreamweaver combined with purchasing a domain at an ISP such as Go Daddy or 1&1, but that can become complex and a bit expensive, at least more than free. I do both - a one photo daily update (while traveling) at Blogspot and text & more photos at my LakeshoreImages site.

RE: What are your favorite rv camping apps?

AllStays Camp & RV is my favorite because of the many filters one can use to select specific campground types, but I also have & use: CampWhere (great for non commercial campgrounds, but no longer available) RVParking OhRanger Park Finder (All parks, not just campgrounds) RVParky And I have a icon link to the RVParkReviews website If you have built in fixed solar panels and boondock, (or are a photographer) The Photographer's Ephemeris is a useful app. It shows the current (or any day) location of sun (and moon) rise and set for your (or any) location. I have far too many apps - here is a PDF of my apps.

RE: BLM camping?

You should start by reading the BLM Camping Rules so you understand the difference between developed & dispersed camping. As other have said, particularly with dispersed camping, it would be wise to check with the nearest BLM Field office for both maps & what ever additional rules cover the area you wish to camp.

RE: Allstays website?

There are two "Review" buttons in the AllStays Camp & RV app - As tsetse notes, clicking "Reviews" takes you to a Google search for the campground, with RVParkReviews usual one of the first non ad listings. There is a second AllStays "Review" button - "User Reviews", however the majority of the user reviews are empty.

For something different & interesting, visit the Desert Bar near Parker, AZ.
