RE: My Method of Loading Camper in Truck

I leave my camper on for 6 months of travel. When I take it off in November, I leave it in my driveway. After parking it where I want it, I run a string along the driver side tires and secure it to the driveway. Then I lift up the camper and pull out. When I'm ready to travel again, the string makes a handy alignment guide. Still have to do a bit of jockeying, but a lot less than normal. If the string is still there when I'm through traveling, I use it as a "parking guide", also. If I owned the place, I'd paint a line vs. the string.

RE: SR 8 (Denali Highway)

I took the 21 mi paved portion from the east in late August 2012. Stayed at Tangle Lakes campground. Checkout the 8/27/12 entry in my blog here for pictures of the area. Have fun! :)

RE: Bank blaming Comcast and Verizon

ATT is my email provider. I've had 3 cases where I never got an email that was expected momentarily (order confirm, etc.). I had the sender change the email address to another not-ATT account I have and got the email right away. These were 3 separate, well known companies. I think the "spam grabber" of ATT grabs more than spam. Probably the same for you. :(

RE: BLM Camping near Moab

I stayed at Horsethief 2 nights last month. There was a rig about your size (w/toad) next to me. In fact, the site I was in was probably about the same size. Not all are that big, however. Nice campground. Here I am in my site. I'm a bit less than 23 ft. Plenty of room left. http://www.hogtimemusic.com/nomad/photos2/RVSept14%20604.jpg Have fun,

If you're looking for government (fed/state/local) campgrounds in any part of the U.S., this is a great site: http://www.uscampgrounds.info/ Have fun,

RE: A Camper Window with a View 3

My windows are dirty, so this is thru the back door. :) I'm at Horsethief BLM campground about 10 mi N of Canyonlands National Park. http://www.hogtimemusic.com/nomad/photos2/RVSept14%20625.jpg

RE: Boondocking on North Rim of Grand Canyon

I think 2gypsies might be referring to the location below. The road is NF22. I was on the W side of the NF22 curve, but I see in the satellite view someone on the E side. I remember there was an open area that was "pull thru" vs. back-in where I was. The Kaibab Plateau is a great area for boondocking. Have fun! Google map of location here. (Zoom in to see NF22).

RE: Ramblin' in British Columbia

Thanks for the thumbs up on the photos! Due to the low cost of "digital film", I take enough that sometimes I get some good ones. :)

Ramblin' in British Columbia

On my annual trip to Montana this year, I decided to revisit British Columbia. This was a way to escape the heat and fires in WA and ID. Worked out well, as in the 2 weeks I was there, there were only about 4 days over 90F. As this was my 3rd time in BC, but I tried to cover some new territory. Crossed the border at Abbotsford, then worked my way E along Hwy 3 to Princeton. From there, much of my route was not a repeat of prior visits, and in a NE direction. I passed through Kelowna (too big for me) and Revelstoke and then spent the holiday weekend in Yoho National Park. From there I headed S along Hwy 95 and Hwy 93 into MT. I especially enjoyed this last portion of the trip, along the Western Side of the Canadian Rockies. As with previous visits, the BCers were very friendly. :) Below are a few select photos. Many others on my website (see signature). I've been visiting my cousin in Dillon, MT for almost 2 weeks and will start my return trip to CA after Labor Day.

RE: temp patch on a cracked gray water pipe ??

I had a leak in my shower drain plumbing. There was a crack in the ring that you spin onto the drain fitting and I couldn't tighten it to get the rubber ring to seal. I used JB Weld and it's held up for over 10K miles of travel. My Mechanical Engr buddy said it wouldn't, but it did. :)

RE: A visit to Hoh Rain Forest (WA)

Thanks for the comments. No, didn't see a Sasquatch or any fish swimming through the air. I want my money back! :) I'm sure things look special when it's raining, but sun was fine. I'm a weather wimp and probably wouldn't have hiked in the rain. Plenty of room at the campground when I was there. I left on a Friday, so it probably was busier on the weekend. However, the parking lots for day visitors were near full.

A visit to Hoh Rain Forest (WA)

I'm on my annual trip from CA to MT. Came up the coast this year to escape the heat I had last year in E Oregon and ID. Worked out well. I've been to the N part of Olympic National Park a few years back, but never to the W part. Camped a couple of nights at the Hoh Rain Forest campground in the Park and really enjoyed it. Nice campground at $12/night, but even better with the Golden Geezer 50% discount. Weather was perfect. I took the two short nature hikes (3/4 mi Hall of Mosses and 1-1/4 mi Spruce Trail). Glad I did. Here are a few pictures from those hikes. Other pictures on my website. http://www.hogtimemusic.com/nomad/photos2/RVJuly14%20136s.jpg http://www.hogtimemusic.com/nomad/photos2/RVJuly14%20171s.jpg http://www.hogtimemusic.com/nomad/photos2/RVJuly14%20193s.jpg http://www.hogtimemusic.com/nomad/photos2/RVJuly14%20213s.jpg http://www.hogtimemusic.com/nomad/photos2/RVJuly14%20221s.jpg

RE: A Camper Window with a View 3

Currently camped in the Mora campground at Olympic National Park, WA. Tree is right behind my campsite. They must get a lot of rain here. :) Camped at the Hoh Rain Forest campground a couple of nights ago. Pictures from that stop on my website. http://www.hogtimemusic.com/nomad/photos2/RVJuly14%20258m.jpg

RE: Wishing no one a good Memorial Day, it's not possible.

I just left a campground of 80+ sites and was one of the very few flying the Stars and Stripes. :( Did my time as USN, Pacific Fleet, 1964 -> 1967.

I'll try and check out the hot springs, too. :)

Thanks for all the good wishes! :) It's a sunny and breezy Memorial Day weekend here near Lone Pine.

Road Trip 2014 Has Started!

On May 5 I left home on the Central Coast of CA for my 9th year of ramblin' in my camper for 6 months. Didn't do much camping for the first 2 weeks, as I was visiting friends in my old "work days" area of Orange County, CA. However, now I'm working my way up US395 to meet my son and family in a couple of weeks in Bridgeport. Since the Eastern Sierra is my favorite part of CA, I'm really looking forward to it. I think this will be the most time I've spent in this area at one time, but I've been fishing it for 40+ years. After Bridgeport, I'll visit both my kids in the SF Bay area for Father's Day. Then I'll head for my usual destination of Dillon, MT to visit my cousin and see how many fish I can catch. Not due there until mid August, however, so plenty of time to get there. Route to and from is TBD at this time. I'm currently at Tuttle Creek BLM campground outside of Lone Pine (where it's on a bit windy). Probably move to the nearby Alabama Hills boondocking area tomorrow for a night or two. The following pics show my site and backdoor view. Pics taken on different days, obviously. I keep a good blog of everywhere I camp (see signature at end). Check it out from time to time, if you're so inclined. Honk if you see my "Ramblin' Ralph" bumper sticker. :) http://www.hogtimemusic.com/nomad/photos2/RVMay14%20086.jpg http://www.hogtimemusic.com/nomad/photos2/RVMay14%20096.jpg Safe travels to all,
