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 The management was very poor and the campground is old and quite out of date.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.

Camping in Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park

I have been looking forward to spending a couple of days in RMNP as soon as the snow was off so was able to do that this week. We arrived at Moraine Park around noon on Monday, Memorial Day. We arranged our reservations so that the holiday weekend folks would be on their way home or travels to other points. This is always a great time of year as the snow is still quite heavy in the high country and the streams are running at capacity. The elk are getting ready to calve and the meadows have many animals for easy viewing. Here is a picture of our campsite. http://i.imgur.com/yUUqrp4.jpg width=640 We met many friendly campers who were enjoying this early time of year in the park. We consider ourselves to be so luck to only have to travel less than 35 miles to this wonderful area.

RE: DirecTv Prices Soaring

Has anyone used WIZIWIG sports streaming capabilities? WIZIWIG

RE: DirecTv Prices Soaring

Cable and satellite companies are loosing customers by the drove and will continue to do so with their outrageous prices. I have been on the phone with Direct TV 3 times in the past 3 days complaining about their pricing. With the advent of Chromecast, Ruku and several more media that allows us to stream from our computers to our TV's the existing cable and satellite companies will only continue to loose customers. Those who remain as customers will pay more and get less. I have a large antenna in my attic which I use to get my local channels and will be dumping Direct TV as soon as I get closer to my contract date.

RE: Colorado to Michigan

Don't know if you are presently enroute or not but if you are I would be very weather conscious. There are presently heavy thunderstorms and tornadoes on that route.

RE: Direct TV to the RV - how easy ?

I don't know what kind of a deal you might have with Directtv regarding your receiver. Normally directtv would have to activate your receiver and you would be charged a fee for that receiver, You must have some kind of satellite dish and depending on what that might be it would have to be directed to the proper satellite.
