RE: Which Campground Will You Never Go Back To

Jellystone Park Larkspur Colorado. Very weird sites, parallel parking along interior roads with your door opening into the street, electric was so bad it tripped our Power management system. We called maintenance and he brought a light bulb to plug in, and insisted that the electric worked fine when the light bulb lit.. He did finally move us. Oh, and the trains literally came thru the campground, they were so close. Never again! I did think it was interesting to see all the "votes" for Candy Hill. We stayed there one night on our way from MA to TX. It was ok for that but I remember thinking it was pricy for what you got.

RE: Lake Havasu CG

If you don't need to be on the island you could check out Havasu Falls RV park. Mid January is the balloon fiesta, which might be making sites scarce.

RE: What did you forget in your budget planning?

well not too many actual answers to your question. We didn't have any real surprises, but the cost of RV parks can escalate quickly if you plan for month long stays, but really only stay a few days to a week. Also, the faster you move, the more your fuel budget will need to go up. Other than that, we pretty much accounted for everything.

RE: Downsizing to TC and a few questions

I had a 2008 F450, King Ranch version, for 3 years which was a pretty nice truck, that handled beautifully and was superbly comfortable to ride in, but it had trouble passing by gas stations. I drove it across the country the year we bought it, when diesel prices were right at $4.00 a gallon, towing our large Newmar 5th wheel and barely broke 4 mpg at one point in going across South Dakota. I told my wife if it got to costing us $1.00 a mile for fuel, we were going to park it. Fortunately, we never crossed that threshold. In 2011, I bought a new 6.7L F350, which we still have, also a King Ranch. It gets much better mileage than the F450 did, and we have had zero problems with it so far. I have to admit, though, that I barely use it now, and have only run a single tank of gas through it each of the past couple years - it only has about 12,000 mile on it. Rather than let it just sit in storage all year, I'm right on the cusp of ordering a new Northern Lite camper, which I expect to do today, for delivery late next spring. One of the reasons I picked the F350 over the F450 in 2011 was that there wasn't much difference in the towing weight limits between the two, as I recall, and the F350 was several thousand dollars cheaper - something to keep in mind when you are truck shopping. John We traded our 2006 F350 KR for a 2011 F450 because the (at the time) new truck had more towing capacity. We have had very few issues with the 450. One of the reasons we paid more to get the 450 though, was turning radius. There was a HUGE difference in the turning radius - the 450 turns on a dime compared to the 350(different front axle). I *think* the newer 350 towboss has the front axle of the 450, also giving it a much tighter turning radius. We really notice the difference, and wouldn't go back.

RE: Four Corners Monument

I heard it wasn't even in the right spot. It is a national monument but it is on indian land so they charge you to pass Thats what I heard too- that its off by more than a mile. Still, fun I guess.

RE: Making reservations for every night?

I agree for national park type destinations, reservwtions matter, but for the 'travel' portion, you are just stressing yourself out more, trying to keep to a specific schedule. the day before, or the day of, will be fine for most places. We leave tomorrow for a trek from MA to AZ- an 8 day trek no reservations at all. Get an app like Allstays that shows RV parks, casinos, etc.

RE: Open or closed

I've learned from others on here: Black Tank closed until filled up, or nearly (so you don't get rock hard "stuff" in the tank). Gray tank you can leave open, but let it fill when you get close to needing to dump the black tank, then the Gray can follow the black to clean out the hose. Exactly.

RE: Filling medicine prescriptions while traveling

ours are all done by mail order- I simply tell the company what address to send them to.

RE: What to do first?

A side ques to one of your comments, what bank is best for attaining money/cash throughout the US? We find Bank of America and Chase to be the most prevalent but many people swear by credit unions, so I think there are multiple options.

RE: Tucson area in the Spring

Justins Justins is FHU with miles and miles of adjacent hiking/biking trails. Can't go wrong. Monsoon season is in the summer.

RE: Roadmaster inc.

We have also dealt with Roadmaster and been very impressed with the company and the way they stand behind their products.

RE: Avoid Tip O'Neal tunnel

Take I-95/Route 128. Driving through Boston is such a pain. X2. Regardless of restrictions it's not a fun time. 95/128 will get you where you need to go easier. When are you going? Rt. 128 will be closed 11/4-11/6 as they will be tearing down a bridge. x 3 128 only adds about 15 minutes to the drive.

RE: Big Bend Roads

As mentioned, no problems with towing. We have been there 6 times, always stay in Study Butte. Love it there- We have been in Oct several times- perfect weather, not crazy busy.

RE: Etiquette in Camping

A strategically placed clothes line might help. Or a picnic table etc, anything to block the easy pathway. Gets on my nerves when people walk right outside my door.

RE: storing glassware

we put our glass wine glasses in two places- the Waterford hang from a wine glass rack with rubber stoppers keeping them from clanking against each other, the cheap glass ones go in a box, each in their own sock.

RE: Full-timing it with teenagers?? Are we crazy?

Look at this blog- they fulltimed with 6 kids for quite a while. I am sure she wouldn't mind if you wanted to reach out. http://coach-and-six.blogspot.com I don't think you are crazy at all. Kids need stability? They have that if you give them the time and attention they need. Actually easier to do that if you are traveling as a family- let them have significant input on destinations etc. To hedge, you could put SOME of your household goods in storage- we did that, and kept everything for 7 years, at which time we decided to build a new house ( NOT in the same state we were in before). Time with our kids is so short- if it feels right for your family- DO IT. In our case our kids were full grown, so it wasn't a consideratiion.

RE: Feeling sick since first day RVing

Dehydration also causes the symptoms you mention, especially since you mention sweating. Make sure uou drink enough water to rule it out.
