RE: Can anyone identify this lake?

Peyto Lake...about 1/2 hour north of Lake Louise (according to Google map) along Icefields Pkwy.

RE: Highway 89 in Utah

Curious where you are looking that 89 looks like a dirt road? As others wrote, you should have no problem driving that section of 89.

RE: Flying J RV discount Card

TenOC...I have no problem getting the $.05 per gallon discount on gas. Have gotten it at many Pilot/Flying J gas stations. At the pump, I scan my Good Sam membership card (first, if I recall correctly), then I scan my credit card (no need for a special Flying J credit/charge card), then the pump prices change to $.05 lower, then I pump my gas. I see at the bottom of the website mentioned above, in fine print is: "Discount available at company owned and operated Pilot Flying J locations." Maybe there are non-company owned stations where you have tried to get the discount??

RE: i pad or ?

I think it has to do with personal preference. Imagine doing the things you mentioned on your phone, but a bigger screen. That's basically what a tablet is. I prefer my laptop, with a mouse and real keyboard. I have a friend who does everything on her phone. I could never do that! I do have a small tablet (not an iPad) but only use it for games, which I do like it for. Are you a Mac/iPhone owner? Is that why you are considering an iPad? If not, there are several Android tablets. I use a Mac laptop, Windows laptop in the household, and Android phone and tablet. But not everyone is tri-lingual :) All these electronics travel with us!

RE: Epson Printer Question

LouLawrence...That's what I thought when I looked at the spec sheet. But if you look at the printer on Costco.com, and find the picture with the dimensions, it shows the height 10.2" without the input paper tray.

RE: From a class C to class A ??

We are a couple who went from Class C to Class A as we retired. We had a 23' Class C and bought a 28' Class A before we retired...to be sure we could pay for it (haha!). That Class A looked soooo big to us at first! Now we've had our 32' Class A for about 10 years and love it. All were bought used. We used to move around alot when RVing. Now we go on 3-6 month trips and stay longer in some areas. Having room for a walk-around bed, a recliner chair, a full-length couch and dinette has been very beneficial to us. Also, the Class A's have more basement storage, which is great. The other thing we love is the view from a Class A, since it sits higher and has a big unobstructed window. I always look online at RVs...kind of a hobby. Sure, we'd like to buy a newer motorhome, but it's probably not in the cards. Anyway, I do have a crush on the Tiffin Allegro 34TGA :) I'd take the 32BA also. I've never heard of 32TS, nor could I find it online. We have absolutely no regrets in going to a Class A.

RE: Winnemucca, NV to Las Vegas

Wow! I had to look that up. Interesting! Hopefully they will be gone by October!

RE: Arizona highway update...

Thanks for the report, Desert Captain! Good timing, because we leave in our mh soon. We generally take 89A when driving our car up to Flagstaff...only go north on I-17 with the mh. When driving home from last summer's trip from the west, I didn't want to drive south on I-17 from Flagstaff, so I exited I-40 at Ashfork onto Hwy 89, down through Prescott Valley and over to I-17 taking it north to Sedona. Hopefully at the end of this summer's trip, I-17 southbound between Flag and Hwy 179 exit will be smoooooth! Glad to read the Lake Marys are full. Been wanting to take a day trip up there.

Thank you so much for responding! I feel better now :)

Winnemucca, NV to Las Vegas

I'm hoping to go to Winnemucca or Battle Mountain for the annular solar eclipse in October. After that, I'll be driving to Las Vegas. Wondering how Hwys 305 and 376 are south from Battle Mountain? I've driven the RV on 95, 93, and 50 in Nevada. Are these about the same....desolate pretty good condition, easy driving two lane roads with a few wide spots to pull over once in awhile? Anything I should know about them?

RE: Crecent City via 199 Grant's Pass or 299 Redding

Pretty sure 199 is preferred, but I want to follow this thread because I may be doing the same drive this summer.

RE: Recommended tools for a newbie

Some other items I carry that haven't been mentioned (pardon me if I'm wrong): Water pressure regulator, 10ft fresh water hose (which I love if I'm close to hookup then I don't have to deal with draining and wrapping the 25ft one), EMS surge protector (one with more functions than the basic), 50 to 30amp adapter (or 30 to 50amp?), 20amp extension cord (to plug in a power tool or something outside), reflective fold-up safety triangles.

RE: I-40 west from Flagstaff???

My friends went northbound on 93 out of Phoenix about a month ago and said it was a nice drive. Didn't mention potholes. Last July I went westbound on I-40 to Kingman and don't recall thinking it was bad. But I sure recall the jarring drive I had coming back on I-40 from CA in October!

RE: Page AZ to Flagstaff

A few years ago, there was a landslide on 89 on the ascent to "the cut" that took out a portion of the road. 89 had to be closed completely for quite awhile while repairs took place. At that time, 20 was improved so that all traffic to and from Page could be re-routed that way. So, yes, it is alright to drive with your rig.

RE: Where to see US solar eclipses '23/'24

I was in the totality path for the 2017 solar eclipse. It was absolutely awesome! Everyone at the RV park applauded when it happened! So I am hoping to RV to someplace to see both of these upcoming eclipses. BB TX...How lucky you are indeed!!

RE: Hwy 89A in Northern Arizona

To sum up...from Fredonia to Page...89 is shorter, straighter, with much less elevation change. 89A is longer, big elevation change, with doable curves especially on the down side. If you just want to get to Page, take 89, which is scenic in itself. As noted above, 89A is driven to get to the GCNP North Rim and/or Marble Canyon. But if you want a longer drive, with a little more varied scenery and turning your steering wheel left and right more, and want to go way up and way down in elevation, take 89A.

RE: Potential purchase of MH

I have a friend who answered an RV ad last year that turned out to be the same scenario. Had a few communications back and forth. When she wrote to them "I have a friend who lives near you and could inspect the motorhome for me"...they never responded.

RE: Northwest coast of U.S.

Nevada..."bleak desert landscapes"...I think of it as seeing the earth naked :) which I enjoy once in awhile!

RE: I need a toad.

We love both our cars, though we have not set up our 2013 Honda CRV for towing. I assume you know that from 2015 on, the CRV is not flat-towable. We mostly drive our CRV while home and on long car trips because it gets better gas mileage than our other car. We do tow our 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara. Suzuki no longer sells cars in the U.S., but maybe you can find a good used one, if interested. The only issue I don't like is that you are not supposed to tow faster than 55mph (though I often do). Before you buy any car, make sure the "recreational towing" section in the car's owner's manual states that it is flat-towable (with directions to do so). Don't just go by some list of flat-towable vehicles.

RE: Southern Utah with kids

If you like more desolate drives, come down through Nevada :) Cedar Breaks Nat'l Monument is in the Dixie Nat'l Forest area. It's like a mini Bryce. agesilaus described Hwy 89A, which goes from Kanab to Jacob Lake then to Bitter Springs. The more direct route from Kanab to Page/Lake Powell is Hwy 89. And along there is the Toadstools hike (short hike to some cool rock formations) and an interesting dinosaur exhibit at the BLM Big Water Visitors Center. Top things to do in Page/Lake Powell...Antelope Slot Canyon, smooth water float trip below dam on the Colorado river, walk out to Horseshoe Bend overlook. If you stay in Flagstaff/Williams, you might want to take a day to drive down through Oak Creek Canyon to Sedona. I think the best way to experience the Grand Canyon is to stay the night in a South Rim campground. More chance to see elk and deer roaming, and sunrise/sunset create beautiful lighting on the canyon walls. I agree, there is alot to see and do in these parts. You'll have to pick and choose a selection of them to fit into two weeks.
