RE: Roll Call Alaska 2014

Beautiful pictures soos (your blog was great). Even when you live up here, you still look forward to and enjoy the northern lights. Could you hear and feel them? The hair on the back of my head stands up in awe while viewing them. Thanks! It was an amazing show! Our whole trip to Alaska was awesome but the Northern Lights was probably one of the top few things we've seen in our 5 years of fulltiming! Sue

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2014

So glad we stayed north long enough to see this! It was absolutely amazing!! More pictures on my blog page! https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-JwVDI8FnpqU/VAEoDXdEucI/AAAAAAAAVWk/50J3rLg1Jxw/s288/aurora2%2520%252857%2529.JPG https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-iljP9rNTFv8/VAEnSI369QI/AAAAAAAAVU4/ZEUhmdOaMlI/s288/aurora2%2520%252838%2529.JPG

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

Churches book is good but don't take it for the gospel. That's a good one! I would go a step further, and I am probably in the minority. We just left Alaska and barely glanced at this book. With smart phones and apps out there I felt there was hardly any need for it and I wouldn't buy it again. Milepost however, was invaluable,if you take the time to learn how to use it. I recommend a small pack of post it notes to mark the pages you are currently using. it cut down on my frustration immensely. I think the MP is maybe especially helpful to those who plan on exploring the smaller roads like Denali Hwy (which we did twice). We opted to leave our 5th wheel in CA and take a truck camper and it changed the entire mood of our trip. No worries about campgrounds and we took many "roads less traveled" including the Nabesna, McCarthy, Denali, the Dalton, and Skilak Lake Rd. Sue

RE: WiFi available, Canada

Next couple of weeks we will be traveling through Quebec Province and Nova Scotia. Is WiFi available in most campgrounds there? I have been told that my Verizon wireless service that I use in the states is prohibitively expensive there. Just concerned about a daily communication with folks back home. Thanks in advance for your replies. Contact Verizon and add the Canada plan for the time you are up there. Cost is $15 per month adding Canada for $15 a month is for voice ONLY, no data. Data costs $2 per megabyte. People have gotten caught with huge bills.nyou need to shut off data roaming when you are close to the border and shut off data altogether when you are in Canada. Sue

RE: Orange County CA - Reasonable RV park?

As an alternative, can anyone tell me how I may fare parking my TV & 29' 5er in a residential area for a week? I fear I am turning into my Grandfather...That alternative is a really bad idea. Try Dockweiler Beach. Right next to LAX, so it's not quiet, but it's not bad. We're all turning into our parents. Dockweiler is $60-70 a ight depending on the site, and you get a narrow spot in a parking lotoverlooking the beach. We stay there because its close to our daughter, and in LA, close is priceless. Sue

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2014

We're still hanging out here. Anchorage for a few days then Fairbanks for a few then pointing south. We're in Talkeenta now. Moving into Denali on Thursday. We'll be at Rivers Edge on Sunday night. If the Weather forecast is right Denali will have beautiful weather Wed -Sat. Might get a chance to see the mountain. It looks like we're the last one up here. Safe travels. We are headed to Denali Highway for the second time. Should get to Cantwell and beyond tomorrow. Chance of seeing the northern lights tomorrow, so look out the window!

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2014

I guess we'll turn the lights out. We are headed to Chena Hot Springs, then at least part of the Dalton, MAYBE Denali Hwy again, then TOTW on the way down. Figure we'll be here till early Sept. Don't need much in the way of RV parks with the TC. Sue

RE: Newbie uh-ohs

After crunching my first cabinet door like you did, I now ALWAYS check every slide before I put them out. you would be surprised how many times some object moves or falls and would jam the slide. One other routine / rule. we never let ourselves be interrupted during the hitching up process. We each have our jobs and we concentrate on the task at hand. It all gets easier!

RE: Laundry and the full timer

I am agreeing with liveneasy we use the Laundromats at the Rv parks we stay at. We can do all of our laundry at one time 3 washers then 3 dryers full. Fold it in the laundry room and repack in the closet, 90 minutes done!. Visiting in the laundry room has benefitted us on great places to visit on that trip as well as future ones. I would much rather have the extra storage rather than a W/D. jesseannie Agree. many RV parks have laundry, so its not like we have to drive to town. 2 hours and we are done for 10 days and we can do other chores in between. No brainer. I love my closet space. Sue

RE: Wondering??

No house or rv lot. We keep a large chunk of $$ in a CD in case we change our minds. x2 we don't know where we would even WANT a home base, but I am sure someday we will so the money is there. Sue

RE: Quartzsite

After some forty years we have pretty much worn our bucket list out, but somehow missed Quartzsite. We have about two weeks this winter and are very flexible on the time. Last year there were some negative post on changes there. I would appreciate any info. from anyone who visited this past winter. Advice on where to stay, ( set up for boondocking ) and especially the best time to spend a couple of weeks. Any general advice would be greatly appreciated. ( the good, the bad and even the ugly ) Thanks We go every other year or so when we happen to be in the area. Do you have a group to go with or meet up with? I think you'll have a better experience if you don't sit out in the desert by yourself. Thats not what Quartzsite is all about, IMO. Sue

RE: Break up extended trip with flights home?

Another point- putting an RV in storage once a month woukd require that you empty and clean out the freezer and refrigerator each time, a huge pain and expense. I also agree, if you take the pets with you, you will feel less anxious about getting back home. Sue

RE: Is there a campground list website

Another good app is AllStays, but it requires network connectivity. That was a real deal breaker for me in Canada and Alaska where my phone only worked when I had access to WiFi. That is not actually true. we are traveling in Alaska and canada all summer. Allstays is the best app i have. If you open the app when you have cell signal, it downloads the basic map, and the map will be there the next time you open it, signal or not. Also, whether the map pops up or not, the camprounds, dump stations, Rest areas, walmarts, etc will always show up, as will the little blue dot that shows your location, making it easy to see what campgrounds etc are nearby, whether you have signal or not. Love this app. sue
