RE: Colorado Camping in August 2014

What CG are you at with the lake in the background? I am at Stillwater Campground, On account of the Beetle kill the campground has been clear cut but the views are great. There are electric sites available if you like and a dump station. There are a lot of activities to keep one busy also. Thanks and it's good to see the lake is full. I've stayed there before and will be there next week. We like Grand Lake much better than Estes Park. Glad most do not agree with that. You are correct, Estes Park is a joke if you are looking for a laid back vacation. The only time you can be assured of a RV spot in the RMNP is at the stroke of midnight on Jan 1st each year. Way too many people for me and my taste.

Colorado Camping in August 2014

I recently made another truck camping trip to one of the very beautiful areas of Colorado on the west side of Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park. I will share some photos I took while enjoying one of my several camping trips of 2014. Hope you enjoy them. CoroladoCamping 2014 1mtnman

RE: Well!!! Huh?

Everyday away from doing what you had planned or wanted to do is a day wasted. Good health is a wonderful thing and one never knows how long it will last. Too many people fall into that money trap and find out too late nothing can replace those dreams you had for your future.

RE: Winegard Wingman

I also replaced my Winegard antenna with Wingman with a Jack head and have had very fair results. I say very fair because I have not had a chance to determine if it is better than the Winegard setup. At this point it is equivalent but on the other hand it is much smaller and attracts less wind loads. This may well be the best solution for the OP. The cost is also not prohibitive at around $60. Installation is a 5-minute job. Can you explain what the process is for installation of the Jack antenna.

RE: Lake City Colorado Area

Thanks for a wonderful trip report from one of my favorite Colorado spots.

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.
