RE: Vernal UT to Lake City CO.

If you go to google maps and click on the junction of 26 with US50 and with 149 at the south end, you can see it is a dirt road.

RE: Route 64 New Mexico

US 64 is a great scenic drive. From Cimarron it is a little slow and twisty up to Eagles Nest following the river, but is a good road. The next twisty, slow part is from Angle Fire down to Taos but again a good scenic road. From Taos to Tres Pedres it is relatively flat and mostly straight. From Tres Pedres to Chama it is a great scenic drive with long curves and some straight driving through valleys and over ridges. From Chama over to Shiprock it gets into dryer high desert mesa lands and follows valleys through the reservations. Still a good road. There are some open range areas on the reservations so watch for cattle, horses, goats, etc. and slow vehicles on blind curves and dips.

RE: Route from NY to NM

I am from NM and was stationed for 4 yrs near Baltimore. Basically I had a northern route and a southern route I used quarterly to get home. I-70/25 and I-40/81 both had attractions and negatives but very little difference in time. The I-40/81 route is a little more rural in the east but both routes have big cities and long stretches without any towns. Attractions are different for every one and in those days I was all for honky tonks. Today I look for fishing spots. I still enjoy hooking up and I was always an advocate for catch and release. Lots of good angling in Arkansas and Tennessee. Had a few good catches in St Louis, Indianapolis, and Columbus too. :)

RE: Caballo, NM----Silver City,Nm

Today ICY and always UP/Down & Twisty. A great motorcycle road but not much fun even in a sedan. If anyone is prone to car sickness this road will get them. There are a couople of 12'8" one lane bridges 5 and 7 miles west of Hillboro. Current conditions are icy. Check with NM DOT before travel https://nmroads.com/mapIndex.html?

RE: Hooking up to a well

Get the well tested first and then test the water quality. Ask the well tester what size pressure tank he recommends assuming the well is good. I do not know about your state but here in NM you must also transfer the ownership of the well to your name with the state engineer. Here the well ownership does not necessarily transfer with the land title.

RE: Nankang car tires. Any good?

I have been running Nanking on my Astro van for 6+ years and have no complaints. I also ran some Nexian tires on a PT Cruiser with no problems for several years. I have some Wal Mart brand Dextero's on my Duramax Silverado. They have been better than the OEM's(Bridgestone) for longevity. I even have some Falken LT tires on the 5er that have lasted longer than Maxxis ST tires.

RE: Driving 32' motorhome from Durango to Silverton

Large Tour buses drive it taking the train passengers back and forth each day. It should not be a problem for you.

RE: What are your yearly registration costs for your truck?

$51 in NM for a 08 Chevy 2500 diesel- but free to 100% disabled Vets like me. Thanks for your service and sacrifice! I’m glad you made it home. :) Thanks for paying your taxes.

RE: Southern California to Iowa July 1st. 2019

Check this web site the week before you leave. https://graphical.weather.gov/# They show expected wind for the week ahead and any other weather condition you care about. BTW: I would go up I-15 to I-70 to get some elevation and cooler weather for at least part of your trip.

RE: Albuquerque to Moab Utah

550 is a 4 lane, in NM, with speed traps in San Isidro (24 mi from I-25) and in Cuba (64 mi from I-25). I recommend turning onto BIA 7010 before Bloomfield (watch for sign to "371 NAPI Raytheon 15 miles") and follow it through the irrigation fields over to 371 to get to 64 in Farmington and over to 491 in Shiprock. It avoids the traffic in Farmington and has some good scenery coming off the Mesa into Farmington. For a more scenic route stay on 550 up to US160 in Durango and take that over to Cortez and US 491.

RE: Looking to buy older 5th wheel

To many variables. Old and well maintained in the desert vs newer and parked near the ocean. Parked and only used a few months a year or parked and lived in all year. Driven 10K plus each year with no blow-outs or only 2K but with damaging blow outs. Each unit has to be looked at and evaluated for condition. Older and seldom used can be a red flag or a great bargain. No one can tell until they see the unit and go over it carefully.

RE: Walmart Tire & Lube Express - Carlisle Radial Trail HD

Look at their LT tires in the 15 inch rim. They have a couple of very good LT tires that are 50 psi and have a load range around 2200lbs, but they need a rim that will accept a 235 tire. They also have some LT215/75/15 (100=1700lb) load tires that should fit fine on a 205 rim. AS for the service it is really dependent on the store. One here in my town has a bad rep and one has a great rep. for customer service. Almost no complaints about the product or level of skill at either store.

RE: Sewer hose support question

I carry 4 eight foot pvc sewer pipe halves (8ft of 4 inch pipe cut in half to make two troughs). They nest in each other and can telescope out to 32 ft or any length down to the one 8 fter. I use a few bungee cords to hold them up along the side and at the joints. If I am only using two of the sections I place the other two on top to keep birds from pecking the hose.

RE: Best Sales Platform?

I have successfully sold on Craigslist and Letitgo. As mentioned above put all the information someone can ask for. Use all the advertising you can. My 5er sold in one day and had multiple buyers, so my price was likely a little low, but my boat has not had anyone come see it, so it may be to high. Craigs list can work but you need to have a price that is in line with similar items. Letitgo sold some of my stuff within a day or so, but you need to install the app and it requires checking for text messages frequently.
