RE: Any RV parks left in RGV?

You might want to change location... Port Aransas, Rockport.

RE: Tombstone Rv and Campground

There's a lot more in the Tombstone area than the town itself... birding, hiking, 4-wheeling, geocaching, etc.

RE: Bay View RV Resort in Texas has Workamper Openings:

Not everyone works for the wages. There are many other reasons.

RE: What must we do in Colorado?

If going to Rocky Mtn. Nat'l Park check out their website. They will have a new entrance reservation this year: https://www.nps.gov/romo/planyourvisit/time-entry-permit-system.htm Check out Pagosa Springs and enjoy the immaculate concrete hot spring pools of varying temperatures. They overlook the small town and the river. We always make it a point to spend 3-4 hours there. Pack a cooler and relax. Fishing: The biggest awesome trout will be at Navajo State Park, Cottonwood campground just over the border in New Mexico - from Durango. The river below the dam is beautiful. Guides are available near the campground.

RE: Park Reviews

We like http://www.campgroundreviews.com/ much better. The public rates them; not an organization. You do have to sort them out though. What one person may not like may not bother you, such as weak wifi. Most people carry their own wifi nowadays and don't use the park's. Someone may dislike the weather, bugs, lack of pavement, etc. X-2 100%, i'd rather take the opinions of my fellow campers, but as pointed out, you need to take some with a grain of salt, like the one that gave a low rating because of all the leafs... in a fully forested CG. :R We volunteered in Rocky Mtn. Nat'l Park and were at the exit booth to the campground. We asked a party how their stay was. The answer? "We would never come back here. It's such a dirty park". I asked what they meant. He said "dirt is falling from the trees and got all over everything". I explained that at that time of year the trees are dropping pollen. It's not dirt. The reply was "Well, I'm rating this place as low as I can"!

RE: Leave TT Unhitched?

The thought never crossed our minds. We never had anything stolen and have boondocked on public lands over 20 yr.

RE: US 395 in California

It's an excellent, beautiful drive either way. Enjoy!

RE: Glacier National Park starting ticketed Entry

In contrast to our visit to Glacier NP ten years ago, which I posted about above, was our visit to Denali NP in Alaska in June of 2019. For those who have never been there, you can't just drive in and wander around. Although the park is vast, one of the larger ones in the world, you can only drive into the edge of the park. From there, getting into the interior of the park requires a shuttle bus ride. The longest bus trip into the park, that takes you as close to the mountain itself, is an approximately 10 hour round trip. Things will change this summer. You'll be able to drive your vehicle all the way to Teklanika campground. You must reserve online at a $25 cost and only 25 permits/day. https://www.nps.gov/dena/planyourvisit/conditions.htm As to the comment that we should be able to go where we want and when in our national parks.... no, not possible with the crowds of today. Our parks are being loved to death. They need to regulate somehow to keep the crowds manageable. I predict we'll see more permits needed.

RE: Bear Spray

Forget bear bells.... the rangers laugh at the idea. You should be more afraid of bison attacks than grizzlies in Yellowstone. Don't get close... they can move fast. Bear spray can be rented in Yellowstone. Here's a good article: https://www.nps.gov/yell/learn/nature/bearspray.htm

RE: Leaving Illinois, going full time.

Your first plan is where to domicile. Since you're in the 40's then Florida is the best place to get medical insurance. That doesn't mean you have to stay in Florida. You need to register there and get a Florida mail forwarding address. You'll be voting using your Florida address.

RE: Domicle not getting caught?

As suggested, go to the Escapees RV Club web site and start reading on domicile. We sold everything and domiciled in Texas for 16 years of full-timing. We didn't establish anything in Texas. We used medical as we traveled. Eventually we had some more serious issues to deal with so our main docs were where we wintered so we'd have time to complete appts. We registered in Texas and set up our Escapees mail service. We also voted national elections using our Escapees address. If you go to Livingston, TX to set up everything that little town knows all about every single process you need to do and you can get it all done in a day usually. If you're asked to sign an affidavit stating that's where you intend to live eventually, sign it. It doesn't hold you to living there. Anyone can change their mind. The popular states for full-timer's domicile are Texas, Florida and South Dakota. There are a couple more used depending on your circumstances. If you're on Medicare and have a good supplement for traveling, health care won't be an issue as you travel. If not, then Florida residency is best at this time through ACA. It's important to break ties with New York before setting up domicile in another state. We hung out with many full-timers over 16 years and never heard of anyone getting 'caught'.

RE: Best TT in the western parks?

We’re beginning to plan a multi week trip with two teen boys to see the great west! Looking for any tips on taking a TT 5000 miles through the major parks (Yellowstone, Rocky Mountain, Bryce /Zion, Grand Canyon). Tow vehicle is a 2014 F150 with tow package. DH wants about 27 -28 ft with slide and larger bunks. Trying to stay close to 5000 lbs dry weight. I think shorter would be better for all those mountain roads, busy campgrounds etc. The length doesn't matter in those parks. We camped in those same parks with our 40' motorhome and Jeep. The 'mountain roads' are very doable with any size. The roads going into those parks aren't a big deal. They're plenty wide for any size RV. Your main issue is your F150 truck. You're going to have to stay within your truck's capacity.

RE: driving from Ouray to Canyonlands NP

Drove 90 a few times with a 40' MH towing the Jeep. No issues. There are some gentle curves.... I wouldn't call them switchbacks. Beautiful drive!

RE: Tips/Tricks/info on Full-time RV'ing For Beginners

The first year will not be perfect. It takes a while to smooth things out and get a routine. Don't move around so fast. Explore the countrysides. You will probably be modifying your budget as you go along. Go into full-time debt-free. Try volunteering in parks. You'll be amazed how good it makes you feel to be helping out. There are a lot more than campground host gigs. There's interpretation, maintenance, visitor centers, landscaping, trail work, etc. It's an awesome lifestyle!! Good luck!

RE: RV Campground recommendations for OR coast

State parks are awesome! With our 40' MH we stayed at Beverly Beach, Bullards Beach, Cape Blanco (a favorite), Fort Stevens and Harris Beach - A Loop #15 is great!

RE: Free overnight camping in small towns

We found many small town city parks to stay. I don't recall that they were free but very reasonable. There are also county parks. Just Google the small towns in the direction you're heading. Sometimes the town Chamber of Commerce is a good place for information and they sometimes have web sites. Some very good ones were in North Dakota. We've also used fairgrounds (when there's nothing going on) and they are quiet and reasonable. Even when visiting daughter in San Francisco we stayed at a fairgrounds which was a fraction of the cost of a RV park.

RE: Distant Drums in Camp Verde

If the purpose is to explore very busy Sedona, we much prefer staying in nearby Cottonwood at Dead Horse Ranch State Park. You can see the lights of Jerome up the mountain and it's a quiet park, unlike being right next to the interstate.

RE: Summer campgrounds in Utah?

I think you asked the same question in another forum which I answered. If not, I'd suggest the area of Heber City where you could easily explore Park City, Salt Lake City and the nearby Uinta Mtns. with your Jeep. Another area is Garden City/Bear Lake. Cedar Breaks Nat'l Mon. and Bryce Nat'l Park are cooler temps. Hope you find your spot!
