RE: AT&T Unlimited Price Increase

Email. This is a grandfathered unlimited that throttles after 22GB. Only works with the phone, no tethering - I have a Verizon jetpack I use for most of my data. It started out at $30.00 with my first iPhone, went up $5 last year & even with the additional $5 this year, will be cheaper than switching to any of their current plans since I usually use 8-10GB per month while traveling.

AT&T Unlimited Price Increase

Just got a notice that AT&T is increasing their unlimited data service by $5.00 per month as of March. They just did the same last year, so it looks like they are really pushing to get rid of the grandfathered accounts. Since it would mean going from my current $40.00 per month to $100.00 per month, I suspect I'll keep the old plan.

RE: Information on Quartzite

For what it is worth, I have a journal that includes 3 months at Quartzsite (and Imperial Dam, another LTVA BLM site) during 2015-16, and am currently doing the same this winter.

RE: Cooler in Arizona this year?

Well, if it is any way to judge, here at Quartzsite 'm getting 4-5 days more out of a tank of propane than i did last year. Two years before that was one of the warmest winters for the area...

RE: National Parks and the Lack of Adequate # of Camp Sites

It is pretty obvious from the differences expressed in this thread that there is a wide range of opinions of what "our" National Parks should provide. I for one do not want to see National Parks turned into trailer parks. I purposely travel in a small trailer so that I fit in most of them. I've equipped the trailer so I can dry camp (without a generator). As others have mentioned, almost all of the National Parks are surrounded with commercial campgrounds that cater to those that feel the need for full hookups. Seems to me like there is already a choice for the type of campground one prefers.

RE: Monument Valley, Antelope Slot Canyon

Another recommendation for taking a photo tour rather than the less expensive standard tour. The guide (2 of them if you are lucky) will stop traffic to give you time to take empty shots, know the best times to hit the different sections, and have good advise if you are not familiar with low light photography. I took the Adventurous Antelope Canyon Photo Tour twice in 2011 and was pleased with the results. I have a web page with suggestions & images that might be helpful. In 2012 I took a photo tour of the Lower Antelope Canyon. Very different. The upper canyon is crowded & flat, mostly sand. The lower tours have no guide; they turn you loose for 2 hours by yourself. Not as flat with some ladder/stair climbing. There was a guided tour starting as I exited, so you may need to show up early to go on your own. Upper Antelope Canyon http://lakeshoreimages.com/images96/ASC_7694.jpg width=640 Lower Antelope Canyon http://lakeshoreimages.com/images178/ASD_2938.jpg width=640 I also drove through Monument Valley on my own - High clearance suggested, or a rental!

RE: 4 cyl?

While the V6 with tow package version of the RAV 4 is quite capable of towing its rated load (I towed a 3010 lb, 345 lb tongue weight Escape 17B 75,000 miles over the last 5 years, including trips to Leadville, CO (10,000') and Alaska), it is going to be tough to find any non folding trailer that will be a comfortable & safe tow with the 4 cylinder RAV 4.

RE: Yellowstone area~other attractions we should see

The view of the Tetons from Mormon Row is worth a stop: http://www.lakeshoreimages.com/images119/ASD_3268.jpg width=640

RE: Glacier National Park

After dropping your trailer, a run on the "Going to the Sun Road" in both directions is a must. My favorite drive, and different views in each direction. Another stop as long as you have dropped the trailer is a run on the West side of the park to the Polebridge Mercantile. Great sticky buns & cinnamon rolls! While it may be difficult to find a site, Two Medicine is my favorite campground, although many prefer Many Glacier. All are dry camping.

RE: favorite campground

Thank you for reminding me of Burney Falls. We went there years ago with just a van. Gotta put that on my list! Be sure to bring your wallet - the last time I was there it was $35.00 for dry camping & pay showers. Still a beautiful waterfall.

RE: favorite campground

Not to many responding from California. What's up with that? While I think the waterfall at Burney Falls is one of the prettiest in the US, my favorite California State Park is Red Rock Canyon.

RE: favorite campground

Ricketts Glen State Park in Pennsylvania is my favorite. Seven miles of waterfalls & cascades along two streams running through the park. 2 campgrounds (dry camping & bathrooms with showers). There is also a lake for fishing & boating. More photos at Ricketts Glen Photos. http://lakeshoreimages.com/images147/ASE_1212.jpg width=640

RE: US 89 going north from Browning to St Mary's Glacier NP

While I would recommend MT 464 for long trailers & large motorhomes, as mentioned in an earlier post, another alternative to US 89 all the way from Browning to St Mary is to take Starr Schoolhouse road out of Browning. Flat & wide, it skips part of US 89, although you will still hit some hills & curves once you are back on US 89. Now I have to admit I'll pulling a 17' trailer! I'll second skipping MT 49 - even with my small trailer it was something I'd rather not do again. Very short switchbacks & many frost heaves.

RE: Utah Vacation

For some unusual hikes to ruins, check out House on Fire on UT 95 about 15 miles west of Blanding, UT. About one mile down a fairly flat hike in the South Branch of Mule Canyon to the first ruin (House on Fire). Many more if you want to hike the entire length of the canyon. While interesting, the "official" Kiva is a mile or two past the dirt road to the parking for the hike up the canyon. http://www.lakeshoreimages.com/images169/ASD_0133.jpg height=480 Another hike to a ruin in the area is south of UT 95 on Cigarette Springs road, which is off UT 261 near milepost 20. Around 3.4 miles down Cigarette Springs Road is an area you can park for the hike. A bit more difficult than the hike to House on Fire, but an interesting ruin. Some useful directions here. http://www.lakeshoreimages.com/images377/_DSC2332.jpg width=640 Some photos & descriptions of the area from my 2014 trip start here.

RE: need help picking a campground in Acadia NP

Another consideration, particularly if you can't get reservations in the park. While Lamoine State Park is not in Acadia National Park, it is close enough for driving to most of the park areas. Dry camping, bathrooms with showers. One interesting "feature" you can order steamed or raw lobsters delivered to your site!

RE: US Income Taxes

I file using Free Tax USA. The only problem is getting a copy of my SS 1099R. They don't make it available on line & you have to argue with the folks at the SS office to get them to print a copy. Otherwise, all my other 1099Rs, bank info, etc are available on line.

RE: Where is everybody?

Well, I can't call it boondocking, but I just spent the last two days dry camping in the parking lot at Matagorda Bay Nature Park. I moved into the campground today for a fiberglass trailer rally this week, then will be heading to Big Bend & on to Quartzsite. Temperature here has been in the 80's during the day and only down to the high 60's at night. Lots of wind, but they keep the mosquitos away! http://lakeshoreimages.com/images545/_DSC7336.jpg width=500
