RE: Can anyone recommend a GPS for the Bigger rigs for camping?

We just got a Garmin RV 660. You can choose whether to use it for RV with the specs you put in or use it for a car. I have used it about 1500 miles so far this trip and am very happy with it. Screen is very clear. Directions for turns are easy to follow. X2 love mine GPS store on line currently have them for 249.95 with free shipping - I got mine there back in May http://www.thegpsstore.com/Garmin-RV-660LMT-GPS-for-RVs-P4463.aspx Because as I said I'm also a commercial truck driver, so hoping to find one that will help me in both work & play?

RE: Can anyone recommend a GPS for the Bigger rigs for camping?

You can use the POI Factory with any Garmin GPS and get the alerts you wish without limiting yourself to a truck GPS. My experience with a truck/RV GPS, the Garmin Nuvi 465T, was less than stellar. It simply would not allow me to plan a route that traveled roads that did not allow truck traffic. That was a real pain. Now I have a standard Garmin Nuvi 2539 and I put the alerts in it I want and have no travel restrictions that I don't choose to have. Never thought about that & something I will keep in mind, Thanks.

RE: Can anyone recommend a GPS for the Bigger rigs for camping?

Been thinking about buying a GPS that might be more set up fro Truck drivers or large RV's, that would have info that actually helps us vs the GPS units made for people in compact cars. I'm thinking about this being am a commercial truck driver & also love to camp a lot in my RV in unknown places. I plan to camp the whole country eventually & think this would be very helpful. What are your thoughts? DEZL GARMIN 770 LMTHD & Why? What makes you recommend it?

RE: Playing guitars with new people while camping?

You need to follow bluegrass. Festivals in CGs are all over & the best part of them is the late night picking which can carry on till the sun comes up. Everyone is there for the same purpose so there is no complaining about noise though those who like to jam do tend to camp in certain areas. Now that does sound cool!

RE: Playing guitars with new people while camping?

If you don't mind my farts, I won't mind your bass. Can you fart in the key of G?

RE: Playing guitars with new people while camping?

I can see where a small electric keyboard would be good sometimes, and an occasional accordian can be tolerated by most. But no bagpipes, please! There was a man who lived up the street when I was a kid. At sunset, he'd come outside and play his bagpipes. It was the most soulful music I ever heard. I'd love to hear him play again. However, I could skip the electric keyboard any day - would not enhance my camping experience at all. I also have bag Pipes & yet doubt most Campers would want to hear it? Limited appreciation for them it seems?

RE: Playing guitars with new people while camping?

We have stayed in many campgrounds where there were several campers, sometimes one camp site where there was lively music. They played and sang at what was sociably considered moderate tone and they stopped at a reasonable time. Also, our camper is insulated enough to filter out most of the noise. We personally enjoy campgrounds where the campers enjoy themselves versus those that only find faults with everything around them. This is why I did not buy a POP-UP Truck Camper even though I can see why I would still love one. We enjoy going to off road race events & etc & a solid TC keeps the sound out. But to this day in about 6 years of camping I have never noticed people playing music other than on a radio & why I asked bout if I should bother?

RE: Playing guitars with new people while camping?

I would imagine music would apply the same as to everything else in most camp grounds of 10pm? You can only play an acoustic bass guitar or 6string guitar so loud. That being said I ALWAYS try to camp away from others any where I camp. I live in the crowded city & why I camp, To get away from people!

Playing guitars with new people while camping?

I keep thinking about taking my Acoustic Bass 4 string with me when ever we camp? Hoping I might find people to jam with around the camp fire. What is your experience with this plan?

RE: please help me find a another latch off bathroom cupboard?

Many times contact with Lance can get you to the correct vendor. I actually called them & then e-mailed them a couple pictures of it & still have not heard from them? I should call them tomorrow. To ask them after I've e-mailed them. The problem with the round one posted links to is that the hole is square.

Here what it looks like out of my '85 Lance 900. http://www.supermotors.net/getfile/1101223/fullsize/img_5008.jpg http://www.supermotors.net/getfile/1101224/fullsize/img_5009.jpg Considering its age I suppose I'm not surprised it cracked & broke.

RE: Looking for a So Cal Thanksgiving uncrowned camp spot

Wild idea -- Davy Brown Campground, way up in the Los Padres, above Los Olivos. Quiet, shady, lots of trees. Here is the link to the Forestcamping description: Davy Brown That is a cool spot. We started from there on a backpacking trip that went up an over Hurricane deck to the Sisquoc river a 65 mile loop, fairly deserted but beautiful area Sounds nice.

RE: Looking for a So Cal Thanksgiving uncrowned camp spot

we will be going to the pinnacles at Trona pinnacles, and it is quite nice. I've been thinking about this place. The rock formations are pretty cool. Not much to do there, but neat to look at. This is the one outside of RidgeCrest right? China lake area?

Valley of Fire maybe?

RE: Looking for a So Cal Thanksgiving uncrowned camp spot

I'm pretty sure you'll possibly, maybe, find a spot, but, with about 15 million folks living in LA, BS, SD and Ven counties, many of whom are looking for the same thing... well, Good Luck. Thanks.

RE: Looking for a So Cal Thanksgiving uncrowned camp spot

Anza Borrego or Joshua Tree, Red Rock Canyon State park on 14Anza & Red Rock are pretty much Off road play grounds are they not? Like I said I don't wanna go to crowds playing off road & bumming me out that I did not bring mine. :( Whats out at Joshua Tree? I've always heard about that area & assume this time of year has a better Climate? But would Camp fires be allowed?

RE: Looking for a So Cal Thanksgiving uncrowned camp spot

Pretty much all the National Forests will have fire restrictions in place unless we get a good wetting rain before Thanksgiving. Closest for you would be Frazier Park/ Chuchupate area. There are some c.g. out thru the Hungry Valley OHV area towards Alamo Mtn that would be truck camper accessable, but might be impacted for the holiday. For a real quiet out of the way place, hit Miranda Pine c.g. on the Sierra Madre/ Macpherson Pk. road off of Hwy 166 west of Cuyama by Rock Front Ranch. Inside the San Rafael Wilderness. Can pretty much guarantee there will be nobody there. If it rains as scheduled this Sunday, you may want to call the Los Padres Forest to see if they shut the gate at Hwy 166 for the winter. It was open 2 days ago. You sound like you know what your talking about & will call them tomorrow while at work if I can.. I don't care to camp in the Hungry valley play ground because I'll get upset I did not bring my 4X4.
