If you are intent on quiet and private you won't find it in RMNP. Unless they are able to pave the main road into Moraine P:ark it will be very busy and quite dusty as it was this fall. Generators are allowed in RMNP campgrounds. These conditions are not unusual in most national parks. They are all busy,

RE: fastguns at full length?

You can get a coupler at your local hardware store along with a 1/2 inch threaded rod. You can cut the threaded rod to the required length.

RE: GM overstates 2014 tow ratings by almost 25%

Better research on your part would have indicated that a 308 ratio is inadequate for towing a trailer of the size you have.

RE: Another truck and camper match question...

You will be at a loaded weight of close to 3000 lbs by the time you ready to travel especially with bikes and such. Any 2500 series pickup is going to require some suspension mods regardless of what make it is. I would recommend a 3500 series and if you do decide to go to a larger camper you won't be sorry.

RE: Satellite TV

I find that setting up HDTV is much easier than setting up SD. I line up satellite 101 using signal meter on the DirectTV menu and my inline signal meter. If your signal strength is 90+ on 101 you should be good on the other two channels you need for HDTV.

RE: New guy here needs help

Are we to assume this is not to be a full time way of life? You will need to consider a TC that has heated tanks and is rated as a four season camper I would think.

RE: Up coming trip to Wyoming

A great location and very friendly management. Within walking distance of museum.

RE: Will my 2014 F250 need overloads?

I would guess you will need StableLoads or additional spring support. Might check into Timbrens also. I would first load the camper and see what the result is first.

RE: Vernal to Estes Park (and/or Denver)

The most scenic route is Hwy40 and Hwy34 to Estes Park. It is very hard to beat the scenery over Trail Ridge Road.

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

Thanks 2-Mtneter and wmoses for your installation processes

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.
