RE: Alien Revenge?

I had the pleasure of reading it in its entirety and didn't see anything offensive at all. Wonder what Whazoo thinks??

Colorado Fall 2014

We took our yearly fall trip through our home state of Colorado this year in the third week of September. The aspens were at their best and the weather at that time of year is something to behold. Our travels took us from our home town of Loveland to Estes Park and then along the Peak to Peak hwy (7 and 72) to Idaho Springs where we joined I70 to Georgetown. At Georgetown we climbed over Guanella Pass to Bailey. We proceeded on Hwy 285 to Fairplay and Hwy 9 to Frisco where we spent the night a Colton Bay Campground on Lake Dillon. The Colton Bay campground has both electric and non electric sites and offers great views of the lake and surrounding mountain ranges. After a quite cool morning of 30 degrees we joined I70 once again, this time going eastbound to Hwy 40 where we climbed over Berthoud Pass in entered the Grand Valley where we took Hwy 34 to Lake Granby and our destination of Stillwater Campground. Stillwater campground is situated right on the west end of Lake Granby and also offers a beautiful treeless view of the lake and a 360 degree view of all that surrounds you. We spent two great fall days here and ended each day by watching the great sunsets to the west across the lake. There are many activities to partake in from this location and sightseeing and hiking top the list. It is an easy trip into Grand Lake for dinner or shopping. A trip along the Lake Granby to Arapahoe Bay and Monarch Lake is a great way to spend the day and if you are lucky you may see a moose or two as we did. Upon leaving this great location we proceeded via hwy 34 over Trail Ridge Road into Estes Park and on to our destination of Loveland. This year the aspens were as stunning as we have ever seen them in our more than 50 years in Colorado and we will enjoy the memories from this fall trip along with the many others we have taken in our state.

RE: Utah Itinerary

I almost forgot! Don't miss the Moki Dugway http://www.midwestroads.com/otherstates/mokidugway/, and Valley Of The Gods http://www.utah.com/monumentvalley/ValleyOfTheGods.htm Sorry but this is my country and although I guard it from the throngs as long as you will be in that area "why not"!

RE: Utah Itinerary

If you haven't gotten reservations for RMNP you had better get them ASAP. You will have to check the web site and see the 1st date that you can reserve a site. That is especially true at Moraine C loop. I think 7 days is a long time unless you have specific places to visit. I would suggest that you make reservations on the west side of RMNP at Stillwater campground and as soon as the reservation system will allow. I would also recommend that you visit the Arapahoe Bay area at the south end of Granby Lake and take the hike around Monarch Lake. It is a beautiful place and there are two primitive campgrounds near there. I think your planned time at Mesa Verde is more than enough and would be incline to spend a day at Hovenweep Nat'l monument on your way to Capital Reef. The ruins there are very different and the hikes to them are a great way to spend some time enjoying the area. Have a great trip.

RE: Colorado trip in mid May

I travel to the Moab every year in late March and early April and never have a problem. That being said you very well could run into a snow storm that would impede your travel plans. In that case you might have to spend an extra day prior to coming eastbound over the Eisenhower Tunnel. You definitely will not be able to travel over Trail Ridge road that time of year and probably not until the last week of May or even into early June. Most high altitude campgrounds do not open fully until the last week of May or first week of June.

RE: Tire size 2000 Chevy 2500 4x4

I have a 2005 2500HD and did upgrade to 265/75/R16 E load. You will probably also need Stableloads and Timberns for your load. My camper weighs 3000lb loaded.

RE: Deadly chicken jerky/rawhide again

Unfortunately I purchased Purina Waggin Train Chicken Jerky Tenders at Sam's thinking they would be fine for my Golden since they were labeled Purina. A Big Mistake on my park. My Golden Bailey ended up with a severe case of bacterial infection which I'm very thankful I recognized and had a stool analysis by my vet. Bailey appears to be doing fine and is on medication at this point. I will follow up with another analysis after completing his treatment. My error was not seeing the notation that stated Made in China!!

RE: Vortec 6.0L owners: are you happy?

My Wolf Creek weighs 3000lb loaded and I haul it with a 2005 2500HD 6.0 410.1 axle ratio. All my towing is at high altitudes and I never have a problem with power. I average 10-11 mpg.

RE: This came as a surprise

Sadly I had the same thing happen when I parked my TT in the street along the side of my home and unhooked to get supplies for my planned camping trip. I apparently have a disgruntled neighbor who apparently turned me in because he didn't like RV's parked in the street. A cop showed up at my door giving me a warning for not having a tow vehicle attached to my trailer. It was news to me be apparently not to my disgruntled neighbor.

RE: 2015 Ram and Torklift 2124

I would think your best sort of advise would be to call Torklift. Their serviced is outstanding.

RE: "Import" in full sized truck?

I once had a Mitchell Fishing Hut and hauled it on a 1/2 ton pickup. Sounds like it is just what you are looking for.

RE: Recommended camper for 2500 truck

There are several campers that will work on your pickup. You may have to beef up your suspension or tires as a lot of us do but ass long as you find a camper that will not be more than 3000-3300 when loaded you should be fine.

RE: Host Aspen SB

Wow that would have to be some 2500HD to haul that beast. That is a beautiful camper but will weigh over 4000lbs when loaded I'm sure.

RE: What a new husband is learning while RVing Fulltime

My spouse are coming up on 60 year of married bliss in 58 days. Fifty four years of those we have been RV'ers. Took me 6 years to convince her that we needed an RV!

RE: Time to get serious. Sold TT and got a new RAM.

I think potential truck camper RVers focus too much on waste tank capacities. I have been out 13 times this year in my Wolf Creek and have never had to dump my tanks because they were full. The fact of the matter is a high percentage of your camping will not be in the in the back country without dump facilities. You may want to think they will be but I can assure you that they won.t be. Many of you live in areas where that is not possible. I live in an area where boondocking is a reality and I am always able to get to a dump facility if I need one. The moral of the story is "be realistic in your demands". What you dream about doing and what you are actually able to do are entirely different.
