RE: Seeking expert opinion: thinning vs prescribed burns

I wonder if thinning can be paid for by the value of the timber removed?? And maybe also some money can be set aside for mitigating or repairing the damage done by the logging equipment? I am revealing my ignorance here!! ;) What type of timber? Size? Location off main roads? Number of acres?

RE: Trip Planning

If you have Windows 10, there is a good mapping program called "Maps". Look in Microsoft. Not much instructional information available (that I've found). More I use it the more I like it. You can download maps to use when not on line, although when on line, only the road view is available. I also use 2 standalone Garmins. In addition to being able to use when not in cell range, they have tons more capability than any phone based system. Thanks I did not know that that was there. It's pretty fast too. KEN

RE: Crater Lake

We LOVE Crater Lake. I was a Ski Patroller for 14 years ( 1998 -2012). We took the truck up there while staying at Cascade Meadows RV Resort (near La Pine) on 4-19-19. Only the south entrance was open. I'll be going there next weekend or so on the bike from Cascade Meadows again. KEN https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/46731589235_fbf05422db_c.jpg

RE: Is this forum dead, wow

I too have been here since 2005. It is slower here, but still better info then FB. I'm on the Grand Design Forum also. Great info there, with many of the same problems,so the fixes are easier.KEN

RE: Trip Planning

I believe the more tool at hand, the better. I have the Garmin RV660. It's pretty good. Using it in areas I already know, I do know better, shorter ways to get to the same place. Our Ram truck's gps is worse. Google map on the phone when there is coverage is the best. I don't depend on any one of them. Just use them and look at the road signs. Using a paper map for longer trips is easier to see the big picture. Then use the GPS or Google to fine-tune the trip. The old Garmin map programs were great. Plot the trip in the program and then plug it into the gps. I would break the trip down by leg or day and use the GPS that way. Basecamp suck compared to the old mapsource program.

RE: What 5r (ToyHauler) do you own?

ORbiker, what's it look like inside when the bike in in the basement? Can you still get on the bed or is it up to high? With the bed platform down, the bed is a bit high for my height impaired wife. I have not been raising the bed to put the bike away, but I have been keeping the helmet on so I don't bump it once I get off the bike. Go to a dealership that sells Grand Design and look at the 374 or 376 Momentum. I think GD might have stopped making the 374 Solitude (which is what we have). KEN

RE: What 5r (ToyHauler) do you own?

We traded in the Momentum for a new 2018 374TH-R Soltude. The living room is very nice. KEN https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/47983424031_c178cf557f_c.jpg That's NOT a Toy Hauler Yes it is. Perfect for 1 big street bike. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/47988695532_b0dce986d4_c.jpg The Victory XCT fits perfect. https://live.staticflickr.com/7889/46869845354_5c05fd7bba_c.jpg

RE: Which Casting Device To Choose?

"With all that being said, we do have an ATT unlimited hotspot (Mobley), so data useage isn't a concern for us. " I have and like the old Chromecast. I too have the Mobley. I would like to thank whoever it was here on the forum that mentioned the Mobley DEAL of a century. Love it. KEN

RE: Early Spring Trip to Olympic NP

Spring is right around the corner. Spring Break in Oregon is the last week of March. April will be wet. Maybe less wind storms. And maybe some sunny days here and there. Get a Passport America membership to help with the cost of some of the campgrounds. (ask me for my member number if you going to get one and we each get a kick-back) If you are a veteran, forest service campgrounds offer 50% off. Since you have a shorter RV, you can fit in all the campgrounds. The Brookings area is nice. Longer sand beaches. Check out the lighthouses up and down the coast. Choose what you like to do HERE.

RE: Best Route from AZ to Portland OR o/a Feb 25-28

We are having a real winter here in Oregon this year. Looking at the weather; it's looking like it might be warming up later in that week that you are wanting to travel. https://graphical.weather.gov/sectors/conusWeek.php#tabs Great weather link.

RE: Keystone Avalanche or Best quality 5th wheel

We love our Grand Design too. We went to many years of RV shows, looking and comparing different 5'er and motor homes. When we saw our first GD, we were shocked to see all the things we didn't like in the other RV's fixed in the Grand Design's. A pocket door going into the bathroom solved the problem of going to the bathroom from the bedroom without needing to go down 2 steps to get into the door of the bathroom. The finished product looks much better then all we looked at. Also; GD is going above and beyond ( if ) there there is something wrong.

RE: Mt. Hood

The roads are up and down a lot. 5000 ft of elevation gain. I would suggest renting a car if you want to enjoy the drive. Maybe motel in Hood River.

RE: Early Spring Trip to Olympic NP

What type of RV Sam? Length? The Oregon State Parks are nice, but not for bigger rigs.

RE: Early Spring Trip to Olympic NP

Come on up to the Oregon Coast now. It's rainy sometimes. The campsite and RV Parks are way less crowded now. We are headed to Neskowin RV Resort Friday (member park) with the Momentum. Through the winter, you have to take the bad with the good. Sometimes it's blowing 50+ MPH. Sometimes it's calm.

RE: New to truck campers. Need both Truck and camper recs!

I agree with Fishorgolf. A pickup camper is for a couple. It's tight quarters. Only 1 person can move at a time. Go to a dealership that has some camper and get everyone inside. Stay it there for a half hour or so. Try moving around to look at the bathroom, etc. A trailer with a slide or 2 would be a better idea. KEN

RE: What 5r (ToyHauler) do you own?

Traded our 08 Fuzion 302 in on a new Grand Design Momentum 351 with full body paint. Night and day difference in build quality. Come on over to the Grand Design Owners Forum. There is lots of great info on there and great people like here. orbiker / KEN

RE: What 5r (ToyHauler) do you own?

What Fifth Wheel do you own? Base on what you know today, would you recommend it to your best friend? If you were to buy a new one, what brand and model? Thanks What are you going to haul. WE love our 2016 380TH Grand Design. https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3896/32889986850_72f705a784_z.jpg

RE: Early Spring Trip to Olympic NP

Thanks everyone for the invaluable information. Rains would not an issue for us unless it's flooded, lol. We used to work on countries and regions with monsoons. We are set for 2nd week of April. From where to where? West side or east side of the park? The Washington Cascades and the Puget Sound are in the way.
