RE: Hwy 99, 1 or 5

Porteau is a wonderful site..if you like trans. Thems that do, like it a lot. Thems that don't...If you don't care for the racket or if it's full, carry on to Squamish. The Save-On Food lot@1301 Pemberton Ave has parking as does Home Depot@39251 Discovery Way or Rona@39009 Discovery Way. Save-on has wifi...I dunno about the other two. Gary

RE: Hwy 99, 1 or 5

Re Horseshoe Bay...watch for and follow signage for Whistler/Pemberton. And if, for some touristy reason you get going towards Vancouver instead, just trundle along till you can make the exit and swing back around. It's not a big deal..it's not a turnpike in New York. Gary

RE: Hwy 99, 1 or 5

The Coquihalla is the Highway Thru Hell and is a great show...but it is a high speed very efficient bit of blacktop with scenery you can't really enjoy. Take your eyes off the road, you get run over. Gary

RE: 3 weeks in the southern states

We want to hear more about this pipe wrench through the front bumper In our rented car. On #100 just west of Toone, in Tennessee..guy moving his stuff had an insecure load..a tote bounced off the load, dumping tools and assorted junk all over the oncoming lane, including his grand-pappies old pipe wrench. BANG...stop and look and there we had a fist sized hole in the front bumper, drivers side. The driver took responsibility to the Deputy that attended and his insurance guy, on the phone, we connected with the rental outfits offices and our insurance company, did all the paper exchange etc. I don't know if he was charged with anything...he should have been. By the the time we returned the car in New Orleans that hole had spread and ripped and just in general looked pretty sad. Gary

3 weeks in the southern states

Just completed our three week wander..Memphis, Macon, Savannah, St Augustine and New Orleans (Mardi Gras time). Apart from the pipe-wrench thru the front bumper, uneventful. Great food, wonderful people. Met up with two RV.Netters...Monkey44 in St Augustine and Tone&Karen in NOLA. If you want to gaze at some pix they are on my FB page and I have left them open to public. https://www.facebook.com/gwhaupt Gary Haupt

RE: Re-enforced reason to boondock

Anyone that goes to Fort Casey thinking they are going to have solitude and silence is either a) living in a dream world or b) has never been there. Probably the most popular state park in the whole US. Look out over the wild water towards Port Townsend...watch the boomers sail in or out...or most anything else the US Navy has to offer going to or from Bremerton and all the commercial traffic. People walk onto the Keystone Ferry for a day trip into Port Townsend. It is a hugely popular and small campground. If anyone wants a great spot? Casey is it...but it ain't quiet. Gary Haupt

RE: Insights and suggestion for Memphis...

For those interested....out of Memphis and heading east. I like secondary roads so we went down 100...and ran into a pipe wrench..came out of a guys pick-up. Ruined the front bumper on our rental. We'll see how that works out. Sheriff was on scene, etc. Got as far a Lawrenceburg and called it a day. Sucky motel but we have stopped scratching now. Up and rolling early enough and decided enough is enough..got on I64 n 75...and pounded it out thru Atlanta and down to Macon, Georgia. Now off to Savannah for two days and then to St Augustine for two nights...to meet up with an .Net member. Gary Haupt

RE: Insights and suggestion for Memphis...

RE: Insights and suggestion for Memphis...

Rats...momas is closed today, Wednesday. Open at 6am tomorrow. We'll likely hit either Central or BB Shop. Beale St...that was a sorry excuse. Few places open..and loads of street people. Did 3 hours in the Civil Rights Museum. Man that messed us both up. No one mentioned the carousel at the Children's Museum. Drove into Arkansas too....best meal tip? Brother Justine for breakfast. Off to Nashville tomorrow. Gary

RE: Insights and suggestion for Memphis...

But I have that romantic yearning for a sip out of a barrel, drawn by an old man...bib coveralls...no teeth. And tomorrow morning..Tuesday the 30th...off to Memphis. Gary

RE: Insights and suggestion for Memphis...

When a person makes their own sauce...it's a mop...and my mops are always dependent on what I have in hand. I like to try all kinds of things, so different bbq's are just part of that. I like a clean bbq...meaning the small bone shards have been removed. I like clean places and people at the counter that are happy to be there. And talk...man, she loves to talk. I can say that cause she doesn't read this stuff! Doc...high praise..thanks. Gary

RE: Insights and suggestion for Memphis...

MM..thanks for that tip. I bbq and smoke stuff. I won't say I'm all that knowledgeable, but I like to eat good. Gary

RE: Insights and suggestion for Memphis...

RE: Insights and suggestion for Memphis...

Ken..many thanks for the suggestion..Nelson's Green Brier. So happens that Sharon loves to wander shops and our arrangement involves me on a stool and her texting me when she is ready to go. I am not sure about Jacks..I am not a fan of that product as a rule but Short Mountain was sorta in the same neck of the woods. I shall wait to see. Gary

RE: Insights and suggestion for Memphis...

This our 3rd time to NOLA..our second Mardis Gras. We watch the Fat Tuesday parade from a spot up on St Charles. You are right...The Quarter is no place to be at night and even during the day, one needs to be aware. The food tho...the food in and around NOLA is amazing. I like being the tourist that goes into some joint for the live music and a drink at noon. We did the night time once....not do that again. We stay in an AirBnb place in the Garden District..right on the Mississippi and the St Charles tram line. Lots of great walkin and eatin and then there is Magazine St, too. I asked Alexa..she told me the difference between Bourbon and whiskey. Thanks for the idea to ask. I am a fan of Buffalo Trace. I see an inviting stop at Short Mountain. Gary

RE: Campsite reservations

georgelesly...and we are just about to arrive in the great state of Tennessee! Flying into Memphis the end of this month. Reservations...I can only speak for BC...there are so many places to toss out the anchor for a night that if you aren't finding a campground you like? Find a rest area or a lake or a river bank. Or a shopping mall if you want wifi. Look for Save-On stores. You won''t be bothered where-ever you park. If you find yourselves in the Okanagan Valley..Penticton to be exact, give me a shout. We have a long curb. Gary Haupt Gary careful what you wish for.... Welcome to the Volunteer state. Too bad we are at the other end of it, about 8 hrs driving from Memphis. Thx for the hints. Should you find yourselves in Eastern Tennessee, you have a place to park with 30 amp svc and tea, coffe or adult beverage. Hmmmm, I just noted your liking for craft breweries. Well we have the brew trail here in east TN and VA. I am a IPA guy myself, but am always open to exploring new adventures.... We have four craft houses here in town. Yep, a good IPA is my choice too. Don't be shy...the Okanagan Valley is wineries, brews and distilleries, pillar to post. Thanks for the offer...we are leaving the RV at home and flying. My boss can't be away from her office for the time that would require. I note you are doing Alaska too....maybe come by on your way downhill. You'll be thirsty. We can set you up on the Channel for a day float..beer in coolers of course. Gary

RE: Insights and suggestion for Memphis...

Bourbon Trails...yes, I wold love to get onto the Kentucky one but time is going to dictate not this time. Got 10 days to do the wander part and we are going to meet up with Monkey44 in St Augustine, Florida..he has a jug of wine with my name on it. Thanks for the tip on Beale St...not the first time I have heard the warnings about the area. Gary
