RE: What now??

I am so sorry for your loss. It's so very hard to lose a life's partner. I would not presume to give advice, but just a suggestion or something to think about. My first husband passed in 2000 (also after 37 years of marriage). I began writing "letters" to him...if you should decide to keep the RV and take some trips, maybe you could keep a notebook and write to her, telling her what you saw or what you did. I have also painted little red hearts on rocks and left them in places I had wanted us to see together. I hope you can make the decision that you think she would want you to.

RE: Where to in June

I agree with Dave.....Land Between the Lakes Lots to see and drives to take and in the nearby town of Grand Rivers, there is an area called Patti's Settlement, with recreations of log cabins and shops and a restaurant famous for their pork chops!

RE: Wyoming Vacation June-July 2022

Planning on a trip to Wyoming and would like your thoughts on places to see and stay. Will be there a month so will we able to see several points of interest in the state. Of course Yellowstone National Park is a definite stop we will not stay in the park however - our rig is too big - any suggestions for RV parks within driving distance of YStone? I would appreciate any information you could share on your trips to the state of Wyoming and the parks you stayed in. We are not looking for resorts - but RV Parks. Our rig is 42 ft. Also restaurants and other spots to visit that you found interesting. Thanks for your suggestions. Also we enjoying taking our vehicle and doing driving and tours. We stayed at Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone...we were in a motorhome...nice sites. It's a neat little town, lots of shops and places to eat. It's just a short drive to the park entrance and has a Ranger Station on the way where you can ask questions and get maps of the park, which has upper and lower loop drives. We took a day for each drive (the lower has Old Faithful) Just before the Ranger Station is the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center, where you can see bears and wolves up close.

RE: Mother/son wedding dance songs

Hmmm, I guess the "Chicken Dance" is out if you want "waltzable", so here's a few I've heard at various weddings: "You Raise Me Up" by Josh Groban "Unforgettable" by Nat King and Natalie Cole “Do I make you proud” by Taylor Hicks “A Mother’s Song” by Daniel Kirkley --------------------------------- I vote for "Unforgettable"

RE: Cripple creek/Pikes Peak

Our daughter and son-in-law live in nearby Florissant, CO. On visits out there, we have been to Cripple Creek a number of times. A really neat little town with lots of history in mining. Donkeys roam free downtown. There is a railroad ride you can take from there..scenic ride on a steam-engine train The Heritage Center (welcome center) just before getting into town is very interesting. If you gamble a bit, there is a Casino there...but even if that's not for you, they have a good restaurant...great breakfasts. Take a walk downtown and a drive to see the old houses, painted in pastel colors. Nearby Victor is also an old mining town...almost a ghost town now. The drive up to Cripple Creek on Hwy 67 affords some beautiful scenery.

RE: september trip

DH and I and our 34' MH with toad are planning a trip for September. Leaving from near Tappahannock Va, going to Charleston, then St Augustine, across to Destin Fl then over to Vicksburg Ms then across to Savannah, up to Myrtle Beach, then back home. It's planned to last about a month. We are flexible. Hope to avoid as much of the Interstates as possible. Any suggestions on any leg of the 'voyage' as to which roads we might follow? CGs to stay in? Have several reservations made (state parks mostly) but very open to suggestions. Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to share. We stayed at North Beach RV in St Augustine...you can walk across the highway and be on the beach. Very nice. And if you have time in St Augustine, take the trolley (hop on/off...best way to see everything in town)

RE: Bad lands area

We have a night at Cedar Pass Campground (in the Bad Lands Nat'l Park) before heading to a KOA at The Devils tower for another night, then off to Custer State Park, Blue Bell for 2 nights then Sylvan Lake for another night. From there we head to Spearfish Campground for 6 days of reunion-ing, various tours and food. What are the must sees and does in these areas? Never been there and it's all new to us. 26" class C with no toad, but will have 2 e-bikes, so parking, tunnels, etc are considerations. Thanks. We stayed in a cabin in Badlands...the drives and the scenery are beautiful! There is a restaurant in the park and they had a delicious dessert called Kuchen. One day we drove to Wall's Drug nearby...that was fun. We have also stayed at the KOA at Devil's Tower...loved it...you are literally at the entrance to the Tower. Look for "prairie dog town" on the drive. And right across the road from the KOA is a neat general store.

RE: Best/Favorite RV Resort

I agree with another poster about the Grand Canyon Railway RV Park. The sites are good; walking distance to town of Williams, AZ, with lots of neat stores and restaurants..a good Mexican restaurant. You can ride the train to the Canyon (entertainment on the train, sack lunches and a tour bus when you get there). Although I wouldn't call it a 'resort', there is a KOA rv park in Grants, New Mexico...It is built around a lava field, so the scenery is neat. Also, they have a menu and will make a meal for you...nice if you don't feel like cooking. In Las Vegas a couple of years ago, we stayed at the Oasis RV Resort...it's not on the strip, but just a few miles away. Nice, clean, all amenities. We really like the North Beach RV Park in St Augustine..lots of privacy between the sites and the ocean and beach are right across the highway. If you ever go to California, research Casa de Fruta near Hollister, CA...it has everthing...RV park, Restaurant, and an open market with ever kind of fruit, nut, and wine...even a carousel for the youngsters. It's not the name of a town, just the name of an incredible "place".....In a couple of hours, you can drive the Big Sur. Cannon Beach RV Resort in Cannon Beach, Oregon is great...the drive on 101 along the ocean is awesome. Mo's Clam Chowder is right on the beach..the view and the chowder are wonderful. The beach is pet-friendly. Happy Traveling.....

RE: Where ????

We don't have any definite plans, but probably a trip to Colorado, where our daughter & son-in-law live. There's always something to see and do there. Possibly a trip to Big Bend Natl Park in Texas, one of our favorite places.

RE: Buffalo Bill State Park

West of the state park, there are two federal camps with electricity and water. Wapiti campground and Rex Hale campground. Or you can go through yellowstone to West Yellowstone and choose from several rv parks. We stayed at Grizzly RV in West Yellowstone...very nice. Just a few miles to Yellowstone Park entrance. Just before the entrance is a great information center with lots of maps, etc. and Rangers to answer any questions. The town of West Yellowstone has lots of neat little shops if you're into souvenirs...and the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center where you can see grizzlies and wolves up close.

RE: Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg in November?

We have stayed at Twin Creek RV Park just outside Gatlinburg. It's not a large campground but had all the amenities we wanted. One of the things I liked was that the Gatlinburg Trolley has a stop right in front of he park. It is very inexpensive and you can see almost everything without ever taking your car....downtown Gatlinburg, the Arts & Crafts center, Dollywood....to name a few.

RE: Blue Ridge Parkway - Early April

I’ve travelled both directions the entire length from just west of Waynesville with a fifthwheel 13’3” tall. The low clearances are where the outside radius is. Moved over a few feet toward the center and no problems. We always stay in Maggie Valley at Stone Bridge RV park. You can access the Parkway from there...and not far from Waynesville are some pretty waterfalls in nearby Transylvania County, NC.

RE: Where's a few of your favorite destinations to go?

Our VERY favorite place is Big Bend Natl Park in Texas. We've been several times and the last time there, we visited Boquillas, Mexico, just across the Rio Grande. Men row you across the river in small boats and on the other side you can choose to get to the town (1 mile away) in a truck or ride a horse or ride a donkey..or you can walk. We chose the donkeys. On the river bank on the Mexican town, there was a man playing guitar and singing 'Cielito Lindo'. Boquillas is really a small village...friendly people selling trinkets, two restaurants. We ate at the smaller of the two, Boquillas Restaurant...great Mexican food and a very friendly owner. Our runner-up is Cannon Beach, Oregon. That drive up the coast on Hwy 101 and the beach and Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach were so beautiful. Dogs are welcome on the beach and there are so many places nearby to visit....Mo's clam chowder with ocean view, nearby lighthouse and Tillamook for ice cream or cheeses. And the views of the Pacific were fantastic. We also love Utah...so much to see in that state, especially the national parks near Moab. There are so many beautiful and interesting places to visit in this country!

Magnetic Map of US states visited

I would like to have one of those maps that you fill in with the states you have visited. I want it for inside our RV. Any suggestions for where to find one? I'm not sure about one that sticks on the wall, in case I ever want to remove it. Thanks for any help.

RE: Cortez, CO RV parks?

We stayed at the Cortez KOA...we were very satisfied with it. Went to Mesa Verde, nearby...very interesting to walk through the different "rooms". We took a day trip to a ghost town (Animas Forks) near Silverton. Just a few buildings, one a house with a huge bay window, but the snow was so deep we couldn't reach them. I love ghost towns, but the drive to this town was terrifying to me...one lane road right into the side of a mountain...about 12,000. Definitely not for the faint of heart, like me!

RE: Spring Break West Texas?

I don't know about restrictions, but Big Bend is one of our favorite places to visit. We have stayed at an RV park at the junction of Hwys 118 and 170...I think they are listed with Big Bend Resort and Adventures. 170 goes to Terlingua. On hwy 118, south of the RV park is Cottonwood General Store...you can find almost all grocery items. This RV park is a short drive from the entrance to Big Bend park. The last time we went, we took a little trip to Boquillas, Mexico...crossed the Rio Grande in boats, rode donkeys the 1 mile to the village. We ate lunch at one of the 2 restaurants...great Mexican food, friendly people selling handmade trinkets. Of course, passports are required. Really great experience.

RE: Oregon Coast Camping

A few years ago, we stayed at Cannon Beach RV Resort. It's not right on the coast, but a few short blocks away. The beach is beautiful...and dog-friendly. So many nearby places to visit--lighthouses, Tillamook, and Mo's Restaurant with great clam chowder.

RE: Campgrounds around Zion national park

YES to Zion River Resort! There is a drive (can't remember name of the road) across from the rv park that zigzags in and out of Zion for some nice scenery.
