RE: 2022 Trip Planning- Advice for Newbies

Also think about how you will charge your batteries, I like solar but a generator also works. We don’t have solar or a generator. What do you recommend for a generator? We will have water but not a pump? Sorry, dry camping? Is without anything? If we have a tank of water, but no electricity we can’t run the pump. ? Your trailer has a battery.Some have 2. As long as they're charged you can use them to run the water pump,lights etc. The only thing you need electric for is microwave and A/C. We have a Honda EU2000 generator to charge the batteries ( we have 2 )if boon docking. It is quite and efficient.

RE: 2022 Trip Planning- Advice for Newbies

It depends when and where. During summer months best to have reservations. Same on holiday weekends.We usually take our trips in spring and fall to avoid crowds. I never made reservations except for our destination. But since Covid,I make reservations at every stop. My wife always makes food up ahead of time when we're on the road. She makes pot pie,chili,ham and string beans,etc. Anything you can freeze and thaw out in the microwave. If you're 62 or over,get the lifetime Senior Pass.It gets you into any National park or historic site free. And you get half off on camping at any federal campground like Army Corps of Engineers,Forest Service,National Parks and BLM. For our trip to Texas,we have reservations at Canyon Lake which is north of San Antonia. A site that is normally $38 with water and electric is $19 and it's right on the water.

RE: 2022 Plans for themed trips?

If you ever get to Pennsylvnaia, Ricketts Glen State Park has a trail that has 18 waterfalls. The stream splits at the top and you walk down one side and up the other. There are 15 waterfalls. If you go below where the stream comes back together there are 3 more. You need to be in good shape to navigate the trails but it is worth while if you love water falls.

RE: I-77 Between SC And OH in January - What to Expect?

Be aware that you have a big grade at Fancy Gap at the border of NC and VA. It's 4%-4.5% for 6.5 miles.....and going north that would be up hill for you. It's one of the longest grades in the whole interstate system. 77 through West Virginia is hilly and twisty too. Any snowfall would concern me although the interstate is usually very well maintained. It's also a toll road in WV. Depending on the weather boring 75 might be the safest route if you are towing. Formerly from Michigan myself.Yeah,I got a flat on that downhill stretch one time. Of course it's always on the side toward traffic. That was kind of scary changing a tire with cars and truck zooming past at 75mph. Most of the trucks moved into the passing lane but most of the cars passed by me about 4 ft from my back.

RE: Windows 11

In my opinion,Windows XP was the best of all the Window versions. Why couldn't they make updated versions of that instead of what they're doing?

RE: Seneca Rocks, WV

We stayed at the Federal Campground at Seneca Rocks. It is nice,has electric.No water or sewer at that time but they did have nice bathhouses.Not much to do in the area.

RE: camping in Delaware

If you like state parks I would suggest Lums Pond in Delaware or Elk Neck State park in Maryland. They are both about a half hour drive to Newark,but both are nice.Elk Neck has a full hookup section that is beautiful.

RE: Recreation.gov

We have camped twice at Land between the Lakes (LBL),Canal Campground. I believe they have some FHU there.

T mobile Internet

T mobile is offering 5g internet for $50 a month. That would save me about $240 a year. Has anyone tried it yet?

RE: More garbage that'll get us ALL banned from National Forests

While that is really bad,it was one person out of thousands or millions who use our National Forest every year. He got convicted as he should have. That is not an indictment of all of us who use the forest.Most campers are responsibile.

RE: Buenos Aires Wildlife Refuge

Hopefully this link will help you from a campers perspective. It is very close to the Mexican border. It doesn't have much in the way of amenities. https://wheelingit.us/2014/02/19/boondocking-site-review-buenos-aires-national-wildlife-refuge-sasabe-az/

RE: Buenos Aires Wildlife Refuge

I predict this thread isn't going to go well. Please prove me wrong. Why, the poster asked reasonable questions. Hopefully they will get reasonable answers.

RE: Where to in June

Your state has a bunch of nice campgrounds on or near the water. Pomme D Terre lake is nice and has state and COE campgrounds.

RE: Glacier National Park and Mount Rushmore campgrounds

Mt Rushmore area there are 2 that we have been to. Custer State Park and Rafter J Bar. Custer puts you right in the action. Make sure you stop at the visitor centers,drive the Wildlife Loop and Iron Mountain Highway. Rafter J if you need full hookups and a pool.

RE: Where to in June

If you want to camp on a summer weekend or holiday,yes it can be hard. I have usually been able get sites even at the last minutes as long as it's not on a weekend. We usually go on a Sunday and come back on a Thursday. But since you plan on traveling and doing one or 2 niters,during the week tI have found there are almost always something available.

RE: A tale of two campgrounds

On our trip to Texas, we stayed at Natchez Trace and Warriors Path both Tennesse State parks. Natchez Trace was much nicer but that seemed to be because of the location of the park.Warriors Path was ok but not as scenic.

RE: Nowhere to go

Go during the week instead of on weekends.We usually go in the spring and fall and from a Sunday to Thursday.We almost always can find a site.
