RE: Family Lost Cat

Sorry to hear this! I hope you are able to get him back soon!

RE: Do you use other RV forum sites?

This one is pretty much it, since another site I was on closed down.

RE: Hometown Pride: State Park in USA Today Top 10 List!

Nice bunch of SPs. I suspect the voting was somewhat skewed by population; I'd sure have ranked Custer a little higher. :)

RE: towing between colter bay & idaho falls

x2. US 26 is a nice, scenic drive. Some of the road is winding, but not many (if any) sharp/tight turns. Definitely no climbs - fairly level, all things considered. This drive can be spectacular in the fall.

RE: Loving this Pup

Enjoy! We had a PUP for 17 years and loved it. Toting things back & forth between TV and the camper got a bit old, the older we got ;), but still, it's by far the longest we've had any camper. We sure made some good memories with it.

RE: Bypassing Chicago

I agree with Cougarnewbie.

RE: Good place between Indianapolis and Louisville??

We've been at Columbus Woods n Waters a couple times, the last time in 2009. Nice park, lots of trees & shade but still room for some large rigs. As long as the same owners still run it, I'd recommend it. If you do have a big rig, you may want to reserve a spot.

RE: I-70 in Illinois

Nothing unusual. You know about Illinois' seasons, don't you? Almost winter, winter, still winter, and road construction. :) (Good to know about, nevertheless.)

RE: Del Water Gap Campgrounds

Driftstone on the Delaware, south of East Stroudsburg along Rte 512. Right on the river, and there are rentals - I think canoes, though, rather than rafting. Tubing may also be available there. No FHU sites but some really nice (and HUGE) elec-water sites that back up to the river, plus lots of other sites.

RE: Sheridan WY to Bilings MT - Yellowstone Park ?

Dunraven Pass is the only way to get from the north part of Yellowstone to the south loop, which is where most of the thermal activity is (including Old Faithful) without going thru major road construction; the road from Norris to Mammoth is being literally moved in some spots, so this "surgery" will be going on all season this year, and probably into next year. Dunraven isn't too bad - though I will admit we haven't towed over it. Take it slow & easy and the driver will have to resist the temptation to watch the scenery - and you'll be fine. Another way to get into the park from Billings is to take I-90 west a short distance to Laurel MT, and take the exit for US 212/310. Follow US 310 south to state route 72, just past Bridger; that road will turn into Wyoming state route 120. Follow that into Cody. No high passes, just rolling countryside, quite scenic but not a difficult drive. From Cody you can drive west into Yellowstone; it's a good 1 1/2 -2 hours from Cody to Fishing Bridge. Bridge Bay or Canyon are good centrally-located CGs inside Yellowstone. Bear in mind they do not have any hookups. If you need hookups, Fishing Bridge RV Park is your only choice within the park. As previously mentioned, you will need to make reservations as soon as possible - and it's possible they may already be booked up for your timeframe. Alternatives would be to camp between Cody and the park (which will entail quite a bit of extra driving) or on the west side of the park - Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone is good, and close to the park entrance.

RE: For fans of hardcopy: Where do you get books on the road?

You may also be able to visit a local library wherever you're staying and buy a used book or two there. The one where we used to live had a good used section not subject to the regular checkout-with-library-card system.

RE: Glacier - Red bus tours

Another vote for the Jammers - and we really enjoyed the full-day tour. In our case we took it from the west side, but from either side will work. Not sure if he'll still be doing it, but our driver Glenn was outstanding. We had all sorts of weather that day, so we really saw it all! One advantage of these tours is that you will get to stop and look around at Logan Pass (the top of the Going-to-the-Sun Rd.) Those driving their own vehicles may not find a parking space there.

RE: London ON to Mandeville (New Orleans) LA

Depending on how you define "scenic," it all is. But some pretty, hilly scenery is all through Kentucky & Tennessee, as well as southern Indiana & Illinois.

RE: Are We Allowed to have a gun in an RV for protection?

Definitely check on the laws in the states where you plan to travel. From things I've read recently, you could be a world of hurt in NJ if anyone knows it's there, whether legally registered or whether you have a concealed carry permit, or not.

RE: Black Hills in May?

There are quite a few decent CGs there, both private and state park, but I don't know their schedule; I suspect that will be the biggest problem - places that aren't yet open. (Weatherwise, I think you're right.) You might check some of the CGs and perhaps Black Hills websites to see when they plan to open. A few good CGs: Rafter J Bar Ranch (we sure enjoyed it), Custer State Park, several KOAs - plus others will probably chime in as well.

RE: Fall North East Trip

It shouldn't be snowing that time of year, but you may get some nights - especially later in September - around freezing. Like almost everywhere else, weather varies from year to year.

RE: Natchez trace

At least from Tupelo north, it shouldn't be a problem, except - as noted - in some of the pullout areas. The most northerly 15-20 miles (or so) are more winding with tighter turns, so you'll need to slow down & be careful. We towed a 34'TT with a pickup truck on this part of the route and had no problems.

RE: Hwy 20

I can't recall if there are passing lanes, but I suspect there may be some. Seems at least several of the major US routes do have them - perhaps about every 5-10 miles or so, depending on the area. There are rest areas - again, not real frequent, but there is one between Idaho Falls & Arco - complete with some RV parking, restrooms, etc. The big advantage of 20 over the interstate is that it's more scenic, IMO. And not a whole lot longer.

RE: Park Recommendation-Jackson WY and South

We haven't been impressed with any of the private CGs we've driven by between Alpine & Jackson. Stayed years ago at the KOA south of Jackson and decided not to go back there again. I don't know if it's improved since. Sounds like Gros Ventre might be a good choice, if the parking lots won't work for you.

RE: Flying from NC to Pacific NW for RV trip - Need advise

Walmarts aren't EVERYWHERE. You'll find them, but perhaps not in the most convenient locations for where you'll be going. However, you should be able to find alternative stores, especially for groceries. Asking the locals - at a campground or gas station - where they shop can be quite helpful. I like the idea of flying into Boise or Spokane and doing a loop from there. Yellowstone & Tetons (next to each other), Glacier, Olympic and Crater Lake are all reachable from there, although you will find you'll wish you had more time, especially in Yellowstone, which is very large & varied (DO allow for at least 3 days there). Not sure I'd describe Boise to Pocatello as "spectacular" but... :) You could take US 20 instead of I-84/86 as an alternate on that route for a little more scenic interest, including Craters of the Moon National Monument, worth a couple hours (it will be HOT in summer). Before deciding on where to fly to, make sure that it will be possible (or at least won't break the bank) to rent an RV one-way between 2 places. Some companies will not allow that, and all the others will charge an extra fee in most cases. If you are planning on making this trip this year, make sure you can get campsites in/near the parks you want to visit. Some will be booked up well in advance.
