RE: Gray water dump

If you are in an established campground this is not cool as the smell can be strong. If you are boon docking then I would say do it as it is environmentally friendly. Oh?? Then why does the federal EPA classify ALL grey water as hazardous waste?? Look it up on their web site. Do NOT do it, please.

RE: Red River Hot Springs, IDaho

I sure would have thought some intrepid souls in our RV world would have found this "Gem of the Rockies' in the last year or so?? Help!!

RE: Roads Most Traveled

WE retired in 1993 and started to use our fiver for much more than annual vacations. I bought a 1993 version of the Rand McNally Road atlas.Since then we have traveled to every State ( except Hawaii) and every Canadian Province and Territory (except Nunavut - no roads there, and it did not exist when that Atlas was published. Actually visited what is now Nunavut - by air when I did annual aerial surveys for the Canadian government _ can I count that). I have marked every road traveled since then in that original atla and it still goes with us as we travel - and gets visited often in an effort to find a NEW road!!

RE: firewood - emerald ash borer

Here is the BEST suggestion - not to add fuel to this "fire" but: When was the last time you heard of a forest fire that was started by a sandwich or an LED lantern? I’ve lived in Arizona for 20 years, during which several wildfires occurred. I’ve learned that: Wildfires start from light­ning or careless humans. Most fires occur during high fire season (dry timber, high winds, low humidity). Care­less, human-caused fires in­crease with camping/picnic season. Camping/picnic sea­son occurs during high fire season. Campfires or barbe­cues most often occur during campouts/picnics. From these facts, I’ve con­cluded that: We can reduce careless hu­man fires by reducing camp­fires and barbecues. Camp­ing/ picnicking can still be fun without fire. Think about it this way: When is the last time you read about a wildfire caused by a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, bucket of chicken or granola bar? Ever hear about a wildfire caused by campers singing around an LED lantern? We can reduce human­caused fires if we take fire out of our campouts/picnics. They may be less appetizing with­out hot meals or melted marshmallows for your s’mores, but our forests will love you for it.

RE: Ethanol from water and metal

Wasn't this a kid's game we used to play? Except we used to misinterpret what was whispered from one to another, not what was written and clearly before our eyes.:) Great post/answer!! True about a lot of posts on the forum

RE: Is Top of the World Hwy paved

When we went in 2010, left Iowa mid May, we only had about 20 of non paved just before Alaska border. We took the Alaska Canadian highway, didn't go to Chicken. You are talking about the Alcan highway - NOT the Top of the World highway!

RE: bathroom switch

Could be the water pump (easily checked), water heater ( not so easy), exhaust fan (easily checked).

RE: trailer lenth

AT 80 I/we gave up the fifth wheel (#5) in favor of a small MH. Easier to back in etc. After a couple of years of 3+ months steady summer travel driving the beast and hooking up etc. has become too much so this year we will continue traveling for 3+ summer months in the car/motels etc. Still lots of wonderful places to go and see but life goes on!

RE: Payload discrepancy

Where are you looking up payload info? The information is consistent no matter what reputable website you look at. What are the numbers on door jamb data sticker? I already answered that in another post. GVWR of 7200# minus scale weight 5900# equals 1300# of capacity left. Yes - that's what I already said in my initial post. 5900# included your husband and EVERYTHING in vehicle. Yes again... that's what I already said in my initial post. 1300# minus your weight, minus anything you put in vehicle, minus any other passengers & their stuff........not much 'actual payload' capacity going to be left. It still leaves us with over 800 so I guess "not much actual payload" is extremely subjective. That's the reality of real numbers vs mfg. published marketing numbers that have fine print/caveats such as: **May vary depending on model, trim and/or powertrain. (We had looked it up based on exact model, trim, and powertrain) **Weight of additional options, passengers, cargo and hitch must be deducted from this weight Yes I am quite aware and already mentioned that... I've responded in red above. I'm not sure if you didn't read the majority of my post or any of the comments afterward but I think all you did was just give us a synopsis of what I already said. IMHO - Typical of old biscuit!! Don't let it bother you!!

RE: Value of Coast to Coast

My comment - a few years ago we stayed at one of the "shoe-horned" sites - an affiliated park that had 2-3 back end sites for C2C members. After we left we attended a GS Rally and during one seminar we met the C2C authority charged with inspecting their affiliates. We mentioned our problem with this particular park and were assured it would be looked into. The following year the C2C Directory did NOT contain the park in question!! Thank you C2C!

RE: Yellowhead Highway

2 weeks since the OP posted with no other response from him! In spite of many folks attempting to help but need more info from the OP. Therefore the Moderator should just delete the post!! IMHO.

RE: How come no part-timers category to post to

" No one is excluding part-timers." But some ARE, inexplicitly, excluded here without explanation??

RE: Oregon Hwy 101

We prefer to not make advanced reservations as we like to leave our traveling schedule open so should we find a place of interest and wish to spend a few extra day touring we don't have to worry about reservations that we may have made previously. I recall when our children were growing up (back in the 70's) that reservations were never needed and you always found great campsites on the beach, lakes, etc. If you don't want to "listen" to good advice why ask the question!! We too spend our summers, mostly on the OR Coast (#101. From June until OCtober most cg's private and gov't (State and USFS) cgs need reservations. Week days in Spt. maybe OK without.

RE: Colorado Springs to Steamboat Springs

Two lane highways all the way. Good pavement, some passes to negotiate - up and down. BEAUTIFUL drive. You will have no trouble other than perhaps some slowing on the passes. Just relax, take it easy and enjoy!

RE: Great fly fishing near Denver

Summit County is one of the best alternatives for your Dad. Great fishing on the Blue - above and below the Dillon Reservoir. Also lots of guide outfits in Silverthorne, Frisco, and Breckenridge. If the Blue is not producing guides will get you to either the Upper Platte - in Lake County or the Green/Colorado in Grand County Silverthorne is,IMHO a great base for you. John (former resident)

RE: Waterton Lakes ?'s

Yes buy the national Park Annual Pass for all in your party, If you stay in any Canadian National Park 6 days or more that pass pays off. It allows entrance into all National Parks in Canada. On your exploration you can see/enter Waterton, Kootenay, Banff, Yoho, Jasper, Glacier ( the Canadian one near Revelstoke) PM me ( a former national Park Warden) for more details. The trade off - I need a cg/park in the general Glenwood/ Basalt area for a summerlong site for my 30' MH. Any advice there? Thanks, John

RE: South west RVs are not nice

Really not worth a comment but there are USFS, COE, CofE parks all over the east. He just needs to learn a bit before ranting to us all!

RE: Along the Mexico border???

Going to San Diego you will be using I 10 to I 8 in AZ. I 8 on to San Diego is close to the border but you will have no trouble there. A Border patrol checkpoint or two but nothing to worry about. Just do not pick up any hitch hikers!!
