RE: Jacks Gulch CG

One of my favorite spots! I have been there many times and hiked all that country while a Back Country Ranger for the USFS. The camp sites are nicely separated both electric and non electric. You will not have any trouble getting a site during the week. In fact there will be very few campers there. It is very quiet except for Mr. Bear who comes around at night to invade the dumpsters. Keep everything in your vehicle or camper. The weekend is busy but generally not full. I was there about 2 weeks ago and the road from Hwy 14 to Jack's was washboard so you have to just take it slow. There are many hiking trails in that area and the Old Flowers Trail out the rear of Jack's eventually goes to a crash site of a WWII B-17. PM me if you need more info.

RE: Dutch Oven Cooking for Two!

When buying a Dutch oven think Lodge! I have sold many different Dutch ovens while in retail sales and nothing beats Lodge.

RE: SL3 SWM Slimeline single line triple LNB failed?

I suspect because of my location considerable East of your position I use satellites 99,101,and 110. If I get a reading of 95 or more on 101 the other satellites will be aligned also. I use a Steren Sky Tracker Satellite Finder between the LNB and the receiver.

RE: Suspension mods

I'm sorry my friend but you are completely out of options with that heavy of a camper and your Ford 150. You have been given some very bad information as to the capabilities of your Ford. You need at least a Ford 250 and then it will require several suspension mods to make hauling your Northstar comfortably.

RE: Moab Area Camping

I spent a night at Horsethief Campground last spring. The campground has been recently redone and is quite a nice primitive campground. The toilets appear to be new and access to the sites is good.

RE: Lyons Colo.

The last I heard was that there is still delays due to ongoing construction. I would check with CDOT. I recently took HWY 7 up to Estes Park to avoid the delays.

RE: Vallecito Resort in Colorado

There was a major fire in this area a few years ago and as a result it suffered from a scenery point of view. Additionally as I'm sure you know Lauren, this area has suffered from drought condition for several years as a result the lake is drawn way down in the fall of the year and that makes the situation even more undesirable.

RE: Vallecito Resort in Colorado

I find that RV Park Review only post those comments that they consider to be positive. This month my son and I attempted to stay at a highly recommended site in a Wyoming community and found that drug dealings were going on at the site in broad daylight and traffic was constant. Conditions change rapidly when the local economy changes such as an influx of energy workers. We continued on into Nebraska and found a wonderful quiet city park in a small community some 60 miles away from the initial site. There was no mention of this park in RV Park Review and I won't be advertising it either.

RE: Vallecito Resort in Colorado

I attempted to stay at Vallecito Resort a couple of years ago and finally left in frustration. The management was very poor and the campground is old and quite out of date. The entire Vallecito Lake area seemed to be going down hill and I intend to never visit that area again.

RE: Ford F250 2003 Truck Camper Choice

I don't think you will find anything with a slide with that weight restriction. Even the lightest hard side camper without slide will be in the 3000 lb range.

RE: Dealer Direct Purchase?

I don't know about your state but my state does not require you to register your TC. The truck license is all that is required.

RE: Carbon Monoxide Detector

I carried my generator in my TC recently and hadn't switched the lever on the gas cap to off. My detector went off from the fumes. Could there be gas fumes where you store your TC? I've figured it is not a good idea to carry generator inside.

RE: All Roads Lead To Roam Part II, Roam Sweet Roam

Wonderful job as always. I see several familiar locations in your pictures and that makes me think of my many trips and hikes into the Ruddock country. Thanks for the memories!

RE: Consumer Cellular

I have been a customer of consumer Cellular for several years. Most of my camping is the High Rockies and also in the Redrock country of southeastern Utah. I just returned today from a camping trip to RMNP where I was in contact with my brother who uses Consumer Cellular and lives in Tucson. We send text,talked on the phone and sent pictures from Moraine Park. Like all cell phone service, and I have had several while my tour as a volunteer backcountry ranger for the USFS, communications is spotty in the back country at best. USFS radios were only as good if you could hit a repeater site. It is what it is but Consumer Cellular has been good for me. Texting works better than voice where reception is marginal.

RE: Camping in Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park

Mike: I'm not sure what you mean with sway while in overhead. I haven't noticed a lot of movement while in my overhead. There have been times when it is very windy when I have dropped my jacks to stabilize the camper.

RE: Camping in Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park

Just as an additional note, while looking at Longs Peak (the peak in the picture) a helicopter fly over and made several passes near the peak. When we arrived home we found listening to TV that a hiker is stranded on the peak and is in a difficult position to be rescued. His foolishness will put several more rescuer in serious jeopardy and may cost him his life.
