Vegas to DV

What is the preferred route to enter DV from Vegas to see the sights? Not sure if I need to come in on 178 or 190. On first glance it appears you can get to quite a lot of places via 190. Is there enough to see to justify coming in on 178? I realize fuel is a concern as is poor cell phone/GPS service, that's why I am asking for your thoughts. Thanks for the help.

RE: Nashville,TN

If no one here does, the TN DOT might. Thanks for the tip. I gave them a call and got a little bit of info.

We are scheduled to arrive in Nashville tomorrow pm on our TC. Does anyone have any first hand knowledge of road conditions on I-40. Thanks for the help.

RE: Question on North Carolina travel

Good road all the way - Watch your speed in two places - (1) from Williamston through Plymouth - 4 lanes, but 55MPH (2) after the road goes to two lanes at Columbia. State Highway Patrol very active on this stretch. Story in Raleigh paper a few years ago about the trooper working this stretch of road writing the most tickets of any trooper in the state! X2. Don't ask me how i know. That little snot nosed A$$ got me in Columbia. I did however wait until after my court date before i placed a call to his boss and went off on him with a generous barrage of verbal abuse.Didn't change a thing but it sure felt good. :M

Death Valley

Is there any boondocking/dispersed camping in or around DV? Is there any BLM land in this area? We are not real choosy just need a spot large enough for a 4x4 TC. All help appreciated.

RE: Boondocking website

Thanks all for the feedback. Sounds like it might be an excellent option for us as camping/boondocking spots in SF and LA are hard to come by.

RE: Boondocking website

I though about it seriously for a while, but as we are travelers not campers, it has little appeal. Twenty dollars a year to replace other free locations like Walmart, Cabela's (with dump), Casinos and Cracker Barrel (the list is actually a lot longer) just does not make sense to me. Matt Normally me neither but we are looking for spots in LA and SF. Boondocking spots are at a premium in these areas and not allowed in any of the places you mentioned.. $20 for camping in these areas would be a sweet deal.

RE: Water Heater

Should have mentioned that i need to have the Wh full of water as we will need to travel with maximum water.

RE: Water Heater

It should be fine. Gallons of water don't readily freeze. If it still worries you, a real easy fix is to turn it on. Thanks for your thoughts. I have considered turning on the WH for about 30 minutes at night to keep things warm overnight,just not sure if it is necessary. Not too concerned about the water heater itself freezing just concerned about the inlets where they enter from the outside of the WH. Clear as mud...right.:)

Water Heater

We need to fill up our TC with water Wednesday night for a cross country trip. Question is overnight lows will be in the low twenty high teen range and i am concerned about things freezing up. Inside will be heated so i am not worried about the water lines,water tank,camode etc. I am however concerned about the WH,will it be ok or should i try to insulate it from the outside? All suggestions/thoughts appreciated.

Boondocking website

Is anyone familiar with www.boondockerswelcome.com? I was browsing and came across this website and am curious if anyone is familiar with it and if it is legit as it has a $19.95/$24.95 annual membership fee. Thanks for your input.
big whitey 02/08/15 03:36pm Public Lands, Boondocking and Dry Camping

Thanks guys for all the info. I must say that we might rethink LA as i wonder if it will be more trouble than its worth. With the lack of good public transportation,traffic and the spread out nature of things just not sure if we will be up for all that. It might end up as a last minute decision depending on how frazzled we are at that point of our trip.:)
big whitey 02/06/15 08:08am Roads and Routes

We are leaving February 17 on our trip to CA. Looking for ideas as how to best tour LA. We have a TC and would like to just park and use public transportation,tour vans etc. Not sure how much time we will spend there,guess it just depends on how much there is worth doing. Thanks again everyone for your help.

RE: Bookmarks/Favorites

Thanks again to all responders. My bookmarks are now synced to our other computers. Really important that i NOT lose my bookmarks. Yay!! As they say i'm a happy camper.

RE: Bookmarks/Favorites

Thanks all for the replies,i will pass on all the info to my just barely more techy wife and charge her with the responsibility of sorting it out.:)
big whitey 02/02/15 06:24pm Technology Corner

Is there a simple inexpensive way to save or backup my favorites in the event the computer dies? I sure would hate to lose them as they have taken years to assemble. I'm guessing the answer is an external hard drive. I have tried that before but was unsuccessful in my attempt. If external hard drive is the best way to go could someone offer a few pointers as i don't have a clue. Thanks all for the help.

RE: Traveling I-40 west

Hi from AZ. . . take it from someone who just made the trip, that Arkansas construction is STILL happening on I-40. They closed it when we were Eastbound. CLOSED IT ! 40 has been this way for 5 or 6 years at least, very annoying. Coming back West, we took I-55 to US 64W to Conway & back on 40. Wasn't pretty but it worked. No sitting for us !. Course we missed Nick's Catfish & BBQ in Carlisle, but. . . The OK sections are mostly finished & fine now.. . .You'll love trip ! regards, Craig Thanks a bunch for the heads up. We are headed in that direction Feb 17 and will heed your warning and take the route you recommended.

RE: Quartzsite - Favorite BLM Area and Why?

We like Scadden Wash but now that you're doing this survey it might become more crowded. :) X2
