RE: Best campgrounds in Glacier Nat. Park that allow gennys

Good to know, thanks. I exceed the maximum vehicle dimensions so I guess I'll have to go around the park using a different route. I drove an RV (24-ft class C) from east to west on the Going to the Sun Road the last year it was allowed. It shouldn't have been. If you are going to drive from St. Mary to West Glacier, the recommended route would be: North on US 89 to Montana 464. In Browning, turn right on US 89/ US 2. Where US 89 and US 2 split, take US 2 West. That will take you on a scenic drive around the souther border of the park. The total distance is 103 miles. As and aside, if you have the time, you should considered spending some time in Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta, Canada. It's less than 45 miles form St. Mary. (You would need a passport.) Canada has a different idea about National Parks. Waterton is a town inside of Waterton Lakes National Park, The campground is in the town. They have full hook-up sites, including 50-amp electrical service. We have very much enjoyed our visits there. Tom

RE: Best campgrounds in Glacier Nat. Park that allow gennys

"If you are going to St. Mary from Browning, MT, take Montana 464 north. It will run into US 89 north of St Mary, so you would turn right on to US 89. That is a much better route than driving US 89 from Browning to St Mary." Better route because? Road condition or scenery?? I'm glad you asked. Made me see that I had posted "turn right" when its a left turn. US 89 is more scenic than Montana 464 and is shorter. Those are the only things it has going for it. https://i.imgur.com/syzx2BOl.jpg US 89 is curvy, hilly and has a 6% grade going down into St Mary. Montana 464 is a well maintained, straight road that is more in the plains. Both go through the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. Before we learned about 464, we use to travel US 89. One would see loose cows along the road and traffic would back up behind motorhomes. Tom

RE: Best campgrounds in Glacier Nat. Park that allow gennys

Thanks for the recommendations. Any preference as to where enter the park? We will be coming from AZ. Depends on where you are going. If you are going to St. Mary from Browning, MT, take Montana 464 north. It will run into US 89 north of St Mary, so you would turn left on to US 89. That is a much better route than driving US 89 from Browning to St Mary. If you are going to Two Medicine from Browning, say on US 2 until the intersection with Montana 49. Montana 49 has a 21 ft. length restriction, but the restriction is after the turn off to two Medicine. Entering the park from the west side is via US 2 at West Glacier. On edit: Changed "right" to "left" Tom

RE: Best campgrounds in Glacier Nat. Park that allow gennys

If you elect to go to Two Medicine, check first. according to their website, only loop A (no generators) is open. Two Medicine Campground and Picnic Area is experiencing a number of significant water leaks following the winter. Crews are examining large portions of water and sewer lines within the area to determine the cause(s). Until further notice, only Loop A in Two Medicine will be available for public use due to ongoing trenching (36 sites currently available). Check back for updates when additional loops open. Apgar is a no reservation campground on the west side. It is the largest campground in the park. We've camped their many times (the last time in 2016) and have had no issues with the generator hours. (7:00 - 9:00 AM, 12:00 - 2:00 PM, 5:00 - 7:00 PM) I believe the hours are the same in all areas that allow generator usage. We camp outside the park the night before we go into the park. One of us will take the car in early and find a spot for us to camp. Tom

RE: Mama Gertie’s campground

Mama Gertie's is about 45 minutes from Maggie Valley. It's about an hour form Linville Falls and a little less from Linville Caverns. It's about an hour from Mount Mitchell, driving along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Tom

RE: Maine, Nova Scotia, PEI, Quebec in 2019

Additional ramblings: Speaking of food, if you like lobster (Sarah) or salads (me) Fisherman's Wharf, North Rustico, PEI. Tom I would bet a cup of coffee your talking about the Blue Mussel Cafe' long wait/lines to get in but so worth it! We went their several times. I just get hungry thinking of the place! Mike I don't drink coffee - I think it is a foul brew. :) But, I will take a glass of wine. We like the Blue Mussel Cafe and, if push came to shove, might rate it somewhat higher. However, I was referring to Fisherman's Wharf. (Click on the Lobster Supper tab and scroll down to the salad bar description.) Tom

RE: Maine, Nova Scotia, PEI, Quebec in 2019

Some rambling thoughts. If you are doing Nova Scotia and PEI, go to Nova Scotia first and take ferry to PEI. Leave PEI on the Confederation Bridge. Since one doesn't pay to enter PEI, it is cheaper that way. Tom I don't get how it can be cheaper ! You pay the ferry to get to PEI and you pay the Confederation bridge on your way back ! From my original post: Since one doesn't pay to enter PEI, it is cheaper that way. To expand on that and spud1957's response, It doesn't matter whether one goes in on the bridge or on the ferry, one does not pay a fee. When one leaves, one pays for the round trip. The round trip fare for the bridge is at least 40% cheaper than the ferry (assuming vehicle is less than 20 feet in length.) For us, motorhome and toad, the ferry would cost $125, the bridge would cost $63. Tom

RE: Glacier NP in Aug/Sept.

Do you want to stay in a park campground or outside at a private campground? Inside the park Apgar, on the west side, doesn't take reservation (except for some of the group sites); sites are on a first come, first served bases. Fish Creek on the west side and St Mary on the east side and part of Many Glacier take reservations. I imagine those sites are already reserved for your time frame. If you want to stay outside the park, I doubt the KOA's, one on the east side and one on the west side, are full, if you reserve now. Again, you can check availability on their websites. Tom

RE: Maine, Nova Scotia, PEI, Quebec in 2019

Some rambling thoughts. We can't go that route without making a stop at Saint Andrews by the Sea and Kiwanis Ocean Front Campground at the mouth of the Bay of Fundy. A must see is Van Horn Estate on Minister Island. While in Saint Andrews by the Sea, we will take a day trip to Saint John. In Nova Scotia, we love Cape Breton and stay at Broad Cove Campground If you are doing Nova Scotia and PEI, go to Nova Scotia first and take ferry to PEI. Leave PEI on the Confederation Bridge. Since one doesn't pay to enter PEI, it is cheaper that way. On PEI, we stay at Parks Canada Cavendish Campground. A big attraction in Cavendish is Green Gables Heritage Place. Tom

RE: Best quickest route from Syracuse Ny to Pittsboro NC

US 220 becomes I-73 as you come into North Carolina. They separate north of Summerfield, which is north of Greensboro. I-73 runs into I-85 where I-85 and I-85 Business separate. Shortly, I-73 is going to separate from I-85, stay on I-85. (That separation is US 220, again.) Take exit 126 from I-85 to US 421 south. Tom

RE: Windows 10... From an Apple Guy

Thanks for agreeing with me. Most Macs built before 2012 cannot run the latest OS. That is what, 6 year old computers that can't run the latest OS. Your 2009 computer probably can't run the current OS. PCs that are 10 years old can run Win10. They may be slow but probably not as Win10 is a faster OS on most computers. Win 7 came out in 2009 (almost 10 years) , so the vast majority of PCs had the free update to Win 10. As far as 43 % also running Win 7 still yet, it has always been a slow upgrade for businesses to go to a new OS. They maintain a lot of legacy applications that need to be test out on the new OS before they can upgrade. Just to give you an example of how slow companies can be for upgrades, I will tell you about the company I was with in 1996. Do you remember the date issue for the year 2000? A lot of programs forced the year to be 19xx and had to be changed. It took the company I was at 3 years to update and test and install the one change across the entire platform. Your comparison of 46% Mac users on the current (until now) OS is quite misleading. The vast majority of Mac users are individual not business users. You would think that it would be in the high 80%. The market numbers currently show that Windows (all OSs) at over 88 % while iOS (Mac I guess) is at 8.75 %. My wife still has Win 7 on her computer because like others have posted here, she doesn't want to learn a new OS. This is funny to me as she uses it for one Word document (or Libre) and the rest is Firefox browser things. I put the Icons on the desktop for her so she never sees the OS. She goes back and forth from my computer to hers without having a clue which OS she is using. Basically, just give her an Icon and she is happy. By the way, you say that Mfgs have to pay to put Win 10 on their computers. Who do you think pays to have Ios on your Mac. You do in the inflated price of a Mac. I didn't agree with you. It appears that you misunderstood my questioning of an easier post. I was confused by (and disagree with) this statement, Just yesterday Apple is going to try to incorporate older machines into new OS. Apple has always been up front about which machines can run its newest operating systems. For good or bad, Apple has never been tied to legacy hardware like Microsoft. (Exception, when they switched from PowerPC processors to Intel, their new OS releases did support PowerPC for about 4 years. OS X 10.6 was the first of their releases that did not have a PowerPC version.) It's funny that you allow that Windows users are slow to upgrade OS because they don't like change and at the same time think that Mac users upgrade more rapidly. BTW, what ever source you use that compares Windows to IOS doesn't know what they are talking about. IOS runs on iPhones, iPads, etc. but not on Macs. If your source wants to lump in all operating systems, then Android would have the largest market share. About businesses, In July, 2017, betanews reported that 60% of all global businesses use Windows 10. If they are correct, since most businesses use Windows OS, to only have 43% all computers running Windows 10 means that far fewer than 43% of consumers are running Windows 10. In other words, its businesses that are bringing up the market share of Windows 10, not dragging it down. But the market share numbers are about computers shipped in a given time frame. Another metric would be installed base. Like market share, that number depends on the source. Net Applications puts Macs at 10%, StatCounts puts Macs at 12.4%. Combining market share with installed base, we can see that Macs stay in service longer than Windows based platforms. Tom

RE: Windows 10... From an Apple Guy

Two points. MS did and still does have a program to determine if your computer can run Win 10. It is great in the that you don't have to remember if you are running hopscotch or purple or ice cream whatever. I guess you aren't old enough to remember that Win10 was free when it was released and is free on any new PC. I do remember that Windows 10 was free for a period of time. But one had to have a Windows 7 or Windows 8 license. Computer manufacturers, still had to pay Microsoft to install Windows 10. Unlike Mac users, most Windows users are one-and-done as far as operating systems go. They buy a computer and stay with that OS until they buy a new computer. Microsoft needed to get a large user base for Windows 10, if for no other reason, for all of the Windows 10's hooks into the Microsoft ecosystem of services. It took Windows 10, 2.5 years to overtake Windows 7 and the predominant OS on PCs. (About 43% to 43%) Why so long for a free OS? The current MacOS is running on about 46% of the Macs and its been out less than a year. Mac users tend to keep computers longer - my travel computer is a mid 2009 - and the older machines can't run High Sierra. Don't get me wrong, I think Windows 10 is the best OS Microsoft has produced. I love it. Back to my previous post on what computers will run MacOS Mojave. I watched excerpts of Apple's Keynote and though I heard them say, Mojave would run on any computers that run High Sierra. Whether they did or not, that doesn't seem to be the case. In a later release, they provided a list of computers that could run Mojave. MacBook (Early 2015 or newer) MacBook Air (Mid 2012 or newer) MacBook Pro (Mid 2012 or newer) Mac mini (Late 2012 or newer) iMac (Late 2012 or newer) iMac Pro (2017) Mac Pro (Late 2013, plus mid 2010 and mid 2012 models with recommended Metal-capable GPU) Tom

RE: Best quickest route from Syracuse Ny to Pittsboro NC

Ok I see it now... is 220 a fast interstate road ?? I was looking at getting off 81 in Winchester andband taking 66 to 17 to 95 to 85 but you think 220 is better US 220 is not a "fast interstate road." It is mostly a 4 lane - divided highway with grade-level crossing. Some of the by-passes around larger towns, Martinsville, for example, are freeways. In NC, 220 and I-73 overlay. If you want to get over to I-95 to I-85, I would stay on I-81 to just south of Middletown and take I-66 to US 17. Personally, I don't like driving I-95 between Washington and Petersburg, the terminus of I-85. Tom

RE: Windows 10... From an Apple Guy

So win10 is a terrible OS? Over 500 million machines as of this spring. I guess you will find computers that have issues especially if you have no control over the hardware. Does anyone think that other OSs don't have problems with their updates? Just yesterday Apple is going to try to incorporate older machines into new OS. Makes one wonder why that hasn't always been the goal. :@ Every time Apple puts out a new version of an operating system, they announce what machines can use it. Yesterday, they introduce MacOS Mojave. They announced that it would run on any machine that can run MacOS High Sierra. Last year, when they introduced High Sierra, they announced that it would run on any machine that could run MacOS Sierra, and so forth. To quantify that a little further, Mojave can run on late 2009 and later MacBooks and IMacs, on 2010 and later for the rest of their computers. That makes it easy for users to know whether or not their computer can run a new OS. It was not that easy for Windows users to determine whether or not their computers could run Windows 10, when it came out. And, MacOS is free. Tom
