RE: Camping on the beach in southern CA

Someone mentioned Camp Pendleton. I was told by the Marines that we can't actually go in the water due to the barbed wire littering the bottom. That is a pity, if it is true -- the waves at that campsite are really excellent.

RE: Sofa is getting soft

Sorry to hear about your couch -- I will keep an eye on mine, but sofa, so good.

RE: Best time for Utah

We've been to Utah in almost every month -- October is our favorite. Cool, breezy weather, less crowded. And the slanting light is great for photos -- this was at Arches in late October, a few years ago: http://i.imgur.com/nFsDd7Ml.jpg "border=0" http://bit.ly/1CIRlV8

RE: How many days each for these NPs?

Are you mountain bikers? Great trail along the Rainbow Rim, on the north side of the Grand Canyon -- and great boondocking out there, too. If you are interested, let us know and I'll provide more info.

RE: slippery scissor stairs

I put Astroturf on one of my steps -- it cleans off the ice, snow, and dirt. I used long cable ties to fasten it on, but a good spray adhesive would work, too.

Start looking for a boondocking site: eclipse (Aug 17 2017)

It's never too early to plan that trip! Path of totality

RE: Grapevine/Tehachapi

I hope the OP made it ok -- very high winds everywhere in southern Calif right now -- lots of trees down, and we don't have that many trees to spare!

RE: Bug time in the South West

We live in coastal southern Calif -- we eat outside, on our patio, three meals a day, from April 1 to October 31, every year. No screen room, no DEET, no bug spray. Having said that, there are lots of mosquitoes in the Sierra in the summer.

RE: Good morning! Newbie here saying "Hi"

This is the best money you will ever spend in your life. We did not discover RV travel till the kids were grown, and how we wish we had those years back.

RE: Wanting to spend some money

Here is a really wild idea -- add the money to your retirement account. Then you will be able to retire earlier and enjoy some major camping trips while you are still young enough to enjoy it!

RE: Glow Step Revolution: Pros & Cons (See Update in 1st Post)

austinjenna, I am a big fan of the Glowsteps, but they are not for everyone, as my original post indicates (I am the OP of this this thread). If your knees are in good shape, if you feel safe and secure carrying heavy loads up and down the original steps, if you don't mind that the RV shakes a little when you go up and down the steps, then you are exactly right -- there is really no need to spend a chunk of change on the Glowsteps. I should add that because we boondock a lot, we would not be in the market for those LED lights -- the Glowsteps have little stickers that glow in the dark, which is really handy in a very dark place (which is where we camp). But in an RV park with hookups, the LEDs might be a good idea -- one more safety measure.

RE: When to visit Grand Canyon?

mikestock -- the hiking trails on both the south and north are great, but both are challenging when you drop down off the rim. The north is cooler and emptier, but the south has more handicapped-accessible pathways than the north does. And the north is a lot harder to get to -- much farther from the interstates.

RE: Adding amentities in Norcal park

Hs anyone mentioned a good laundry room, with a table for folding clothes?

RE: When to visit Grand Canyon?

I would not agree on skipping the south rim. Yes, I personally like the north rim better because it is cool and green and very quiet -- great boondocking. But on the south rim, you are usually looking at the canyon with the sun behind you instead of in front, so that visibility is better. The tourist facilities on the south rim are much better. There are more paved trails for walking along the rim. And there are some genuine Grand Canyon experts (hi, Lauren!) who favor the south rim, so that is not advice that should be lightly disregarded.

RE: When to visit Grand Canyon?

We were at the South Rim in late October of 2010 -- it was cold and very beautiful -- the autumn light was slanted, which brought out the colors in the rock: http://i.imgur.com/5tgy6Q8l.jpg "border=0" http://bit.ly/1CIRlV8

RE: Removing Dinette and putting in REAL furniture!

Wow, that looks so luxurious -- well done! But can you play Monopoly while reclining? ;)

RE: Utah and North Rim Grand Canyon

(The website is having trouble with long messages today, so I will break this up into two bites.) It can be a long drive over rough roads to get to the North Rim out in the Kaibab National Forest, but there is some spectacular boondocking out there. This was the view from our campsite at 5 AM in late May, 2008: http://i.imgur.com/hcVNIrql.jpg "border=0" http://bit.ly/1CIRlV8

RE: Testing a post with and without a photo

That worked. That tells me that the photo is not the problem. By the way, if anyone wants to know, that was posted using 1492's new photo app. There is one workaround to the "long message" problem -- break up the message into smaller bites!
