RE: Spring is finally coming!! Yahoo!

Lucky guy. We are stuck down here all winter following the Snowbird's posts just drooling at the thought of heading for Arizona, the Rio Grande Valley or best of all the Florida Keys. But ever time we try and make a reservation for the winter none of the campgrounds will let us in. They say they are saving all their spaces for somebody that really needs them. Bummer !

RE: Is .22mag snake shot enough for moccasins?

Lots of good info if I ever feel threatened by a snake. Over 25 years out here in rattler country and it's been my experience they just want to be left alone. The small ones I'll shoo into a big trash can and take down over the hill and slide them out. The big old guys I just wait for them to wander off on their own after a while. But if any of them ever come after me I'll sure keep this thread in mind.

RE: Along the Mexico border???

We been running back and forth to Houston for years and can't think of any particular stretch of road to caution you about. As anywhere in this country, big cities should always raise you alert level but otherwise there just isn't anything to worry about. We even run route 9 between El Paso and Arizona right along the border with no concern - and that's a long lonely stretch of road. It passes through the historic little town of Columbus NM where Pancho Villa ordered 500 of his men to raid the town in 1916. If you are into history and have the time, it's a nice side trip about 30 miles south of Deming on I-10. There is a New Mexico state park campground there.

RE: How steep was it?

Yeah. If it's a straight downhill shot and not all that far and you have some run out at the bottom it's not a problem at all. But how do you know that out traveling cross country?

RE: pretty good deal on propane

Costco here in the San Diego area (Santee) now has a propane filling service and they can do RV (motorhome) tanks. A week or so back it was $2.49 a gal. They just installed a huge storage tank over next to the tire shop for those familiar with this area. All you Santee Lakes campers take note.

RE: California DMV

So would a bank loan you money on the Coach build year - or on the Chassis year appearing on the title? Wouldn't they have to go by the California title in this case?

RE: First Trip in the class A!!!

A really nice coach. Looks like a great camping spot too. Getting an awning out and then stowed again can be a real puzzler the first time. It's really simple once you've done it a few times but until then perhaps a bit frustrating. Make some notes when you figure it out because you'll maybe forget the process next time.

RE: We would like to get off the interstate, but......

Depends on what part of the country you're in. You have to sorta get a "feel" for the roads in your area. Out here in the west we pretty much don't worry about it much at all. Just go. Now one time over in Texas we dropped onto dirt out east of Lubbock working our way up to Caprock Canyons State Park and we though we'd never get outta there and back onto pavement. But there are also the horror stories of people having had to back up for miles on narrow dead end roads too. That can either be a story to chuckle about with the grand kids or perhaps something to go over with your psychologist at the next therapy session.

RE: Bikini Clad Aliens cause massive Snowbird evacuation

Reminds me of the sign at a beach bar I used to hang out in: Welcome to San Diego. Now go home (But leave your daughters)

RE: HWH leveler Hose burst

Take the hose into most any NAPA store and they will give you a new hose while you wait - or may later in the day perhaps.

RE: Winnebago Won't Start in Morning & Damp Outside

You might be able to narrow down your problem with a hair dryer. I had a 1974 Datsun 260Z that would not start on cool mornings and it turned out to be the electronics box up under the dashboard above the passengers feet. I'd just run a propane torch over it for a brief second or two and the car would start immediately. And I sure don't remember how I figured that out. And for another problem I had as a kid. An old dodge would occasionally just quit running. Stop dead. The problem turned out to be in the distributor. It had dual points and the insulation wore through on a wire pulled tight across the moving arm on a set of points. Every few days it would just short out briefly for some reason. I think I found that problem by shotgunning it.

RE: Boondocking near Why/Aho

I should have anticipated these questions: Ajo and Why are about 40 miles south of Gila Bend, Arizona, which is along I-8 about midway between Yuma and Tucson (on I-10). Ajo you could call a really nice tiny village. Why is more of a dot on the map 10 miles south. South of Why 4 miles is the entrance to Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument right on the Border with Mexico which is 20 miles away. Most RVers knowing about Ajo and Why probably do so because they have camped in Organ Pipe. But through Organ Pipe and 60 miles south of the Border is the Snowbird haven of Puerto Penasco on the Gulf of California. Virtually everybody up here calls it "Rocky Point." Rumor has it there are a couple of pretty good paint shops down there willing to work with you. About the only other thing to note is that from Why you can take route 86 over to Tucson. It's about 120 miles. The road is somewhat narrow and not having a lot of shoulder - but then it's also lightly traveled. And you go right past Old Tucson as you near that city. OOOPs: it's spelled Why. Corrections made!

RE: Correct way to check the oil level in a truck???

I would assume most vehicle dip sticks are set up to check the oil with the engine hot and after having just been shut off perhaps when stopping for fuel. In fact my manual specified a range of temperatures at which they want me to check the oil. Basically normal operating temperatures - not after just having pulled a steep mountain grade with the oil really hot and expanded to the max. I seem to remember that one of the big problems with over filling a crankcase is that the crankshaft can possibly start "slapping" down into it to cause foaming. And then maybe the oil pump pickup screen will start sucking foam instead of good solid oil. But I'm not a gear head, so maybe that' an "old wives tale" or something. Maybe we should all check the oil hot one day and then the next morning when cold and notice what the difference in level is. Just how much oil drains down into the pan overnight? And how much does it "shrink" when cold?

RE: Boondocking near Why/Aho

There is BLM camping just south of both Ajo and Why. And also some inexpensive commercial campgrounds in the area to take advantage of for a night if desired. Right outside Ajo to the south a couple miles take Darby Wells Road to the west into some BLM land. And then down south of Why a couple miles you will cross a bridge over a somewhat large wash. Just beyond that turn west into the Gunsite Wash area for BLM camping. Go back in maybe a tenth mile. If you haven't spent much time in that part of the country lately there are quite a few good places to boondock. But the season will be coming to an end soon as the 100+ degree days of summer arrive.

RE: Roads in and around Yellowstone

The few miles you would save by taking 22 west out of Jackson (Hole) over Teton Pass would not be worth the wear and tear on you vehicle. It's a tough climb. Go south on 189 and pick up 26 west over to Idaho Falls and on to Burley. That said, we crossed the pass a while back with our rig but that's running with a gear splitter unit - and we don't travel around hauling a toad, so that extra load didn't exist for us. And I remember that one of the switchback curves was tight enough that we had to back off the throttle and lose speed - which you sure don't want to do much of pulling a tough grade.

RE: First BIG Trip, Calif to Louisiana & Back: Feedback Please

Looks like you have really done your homework. No comment on your stops. But if you like history, then for the Yuma and Tucson area check out the Anza Expedition. And down south of Tucson at Green Valley is the Titan Missile Museum. Over in Fredericksburg you just could not miss the Pacific War Museum. But I'll mention it anyway. If you're ex Navy or Marine you'll feel right at home there. Ex Army guys though will feel left out. The Army was there but not much remembered. Here is a pretty good weekend Travel Article about a visit to the LBJ Ranch and Johnson City nearby to Fredericksburg. And just down FM1376 from your KOA campground there in Fredericksburg is a Little Place made famous by Waylon Jennings. Who doesn't remember Luckenbach Texas ?

RE: Organ Pipe to Tucson

We run it all the time to avoid the heavy truck traffic, etc over on I-10. And it's an nice country drive.

RE: Anything better than plywood for floor?

Don't know that I'd want any treated plywood in my rig without checking it out a bit. Perhaps marine grade might be better.

RE: Wickenburg AZ to Terrell TX

I will retract the H*ll reference . I really shouldn't prejudge anything. Just kidding you. We all take shots at places in jest. I was one of those old time Nike guys there in Terrell. We took the sites over from the contractors on a rainy February day and it was a muddy mess.
