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.

RE: Taco Soup

My go-to recipe for Taco Soup is from my Weight-Watchers days: 1 pound lean ground beef, at least 93% lean, browned 1 cup chopped onion (1 medium-size onion) 1 can (14 to 15 ounces) petite diced tomatoes, undrained 1 can (10 ounces) tomatoes with chiles, undrained aka Rotel 2 cans (14 to 15 ounces each) beans (kidney, pinto, black or chili), rinsed and drained (I use kidney and black) 1 can (11 to 15 ounces) corn, undrained 2 cups water 1 package (1.25 ounces) taco seasoning I put all in my slow-cooker for 2 or 3 hours

RE: February trip south on the East Coast

Just a couple of suggestions for St Augustine. We stayed at an RV park, North Beach Camp Resort...great sites AND it is directly across the highway from the beach. In St Augustine, we took the Old Town Trolley, a wonderful way to see all the historic places in the town. If you like museums, the Lightner Museum is wonderful! Since my husband is a Nascar fan, we drove down to Daytona and toured the track there.

RE: Big 5 National Parks in Utah

Planning a trip next spring to visit the National Parks in Utah for the first time. Will be pulling a 26' travel trailer with a diesel pickup. Will be starting at Arches and ending at Zion. Would like to know routes that would be relatively easy for pulling a travel trailer and proceeding from Arches to Capitol Reef to Bryce to Zion. Main concern would be tough switchbacks to maneuver a trailer. I am aware of State Highway 12 as a scenic route that is doable pulling a trailer. Not sure of other routes over the landscape other than travelling on Interstate 70. Also, any recommendations as to private campgrounds would be appreciated. Thanks! Not a National Park, but Dead Horse State Park is worth visiting...in the area of Arches. Beautiful scenery, one being the place where 'Thelma and Louise' of the movie, drove off at the end of the movie.

Taco Soup

Anyone have a really simple recipe for Taco Soup? I want to make some and put in the freezer. A friend has a recipe that sounds a little complicated and she puts cream cheese in hers. Not sure how well that would freeze. I had an old Weight Watchers recipe, but can't find it. Thanks

RE: "My pet is home alone" tags

Thanks for the reminder & info. I always use my printer at home to print out cards about our dogs...I just simply type: "we have two dogs in our RV at (a blank line for park name & location)" I also make cards for info about (who to call) in case of an accident, etc.

RE: Atlanta to Grand Canyon with 10 days

Wow! Just checked back in and there are a lot of great suggestions here. I believe you have talked me out of going to the Grand Canyon. Just not enough time in 10 days. So, we have decided to go to the Smokey Mountains/Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area. This will allow for the most time enjoying one another's company and seeing sites and hiking. I really appreciate your input. It is great to rely on other people's experience and not have to make the same mistakes. Any MUST SEEs in the Smokey Mountains? We often take trips to the Smokies. In Gatlinburg, we have stayed at Twin Creeks RV Park...it's just outside Gatlinburg, and there is a stop there for the Trolley that will take you downtown. Our favorite RV park is StoneBridge in Maggie Valley. It's not as "busy" as Gatlinburg and not far from Cherokee, NC and Brevard, NC (which is in Transylvania County and home to numerous waterfalls and the actual Cold Mountain). There is a drive 'Cades Cove', but it is usually bumper to bumper. There's a neat little Pizza place (Nick & Nate) in nearby Waynesville and also a Mast General Store that's fun to wander through.

RE: Rapid City, SD area RV park

Mt Rushmore KOA will fit the bill. Hundreds of RV sites. Cabins from small to multiple bedrooms. Water park, Bar. Restaurant. Wine tasting. Horses. We were there last month and had a great time. I agree...great place! We stayed here while visiting Mt Rushmore..Custer State Park and Bear Country drive-thru nearby.

RE: Pigeon forge

We have stayed at Twin Creeks RV in Gatlinburg...just a couple miles from town. Nice park, creeks running alongside and back...and the trolley to Gatlinburg and other nearby places has a stop right in front of the park. We have also stayed at StoneBridge RV in nearby Maggie Valley.

RE: The Highlands

Thanks for the responses. After reading, I realized that we have been in that area...near Brevard...in Transylvania County where all those beautiful waterfalls are located. I'll check out some of the RV parks posted.
