RE: Part of Alaska Highway closes due to road washout

It is long way back to the 37 if you are going north. Camping at Muncho Lake is a good alternative. Those going south, the Cassiar is a preferred direction anyways. Stuff happens in the north, be prepared.

RE: Fuel cost in your area

Ventura, Ca. Regular $5.77, Diesel $6.45 after the 3 cent increase in tax applied today.

RE: RV Park recommendations for Alaska

Maybe the first thing is not to over plan the route and stays. Expect your plans to change due to road conditions, fire and smoke closures, and weather. On your list of city names, I didn't see ones in the Yukon and British Columbia. Most repeat visitors spend weeks, not days, in Northern BC and the Yukon. I agree that the Church book is the better resource, much easier for me to find spots. My first trip up I did not know about the Tour Saver book. I got one each time on most of my last few trips up but I have not been back up since 2019. I didn't really save any money with the two for ones, we just did twice as many excursions. I fish so lot of my movements from one location to another were following the salmon runs. We seldom stayed in the same place for two weeks but did revisit almost every place except Fairbanks and Delta Junction. There were no bad places

RE: best route from Barstow to Pismo Beach, CA

It is roughly 20 miles farther to take 46 through Paso Robles. Traffic is much heavier that way also and you have the Cuesta Grade to descend southbound into San Luis Obispo.

RE: Bryce Canyon NP to the Northeast

Remember, any state highway designated SCENIC in Utah must include 10% grades with slow to 15mph curves..I think it's state law. But, highway 12 is a wonderful road going from Escalante to Torrey and not to be missed.

RE: Alaska 2022??

My last three trips, I've used the ferry to take the short trip from Skagway to Haines. You get the experience of the ferry and bypass the long drive from Skagway to Haines and then back up to Haines Junction. Cost of the fuel avoided made up for the cost of the ferry for two people, RV, and toad. Not all of the ferry routes are priced that extremely. The longer rides were not on our agenda because of our pupper dog.

RE: New RV park comming to Grants Pass Oregon

If it’s not on the Rogue, I’m not interested. Try going up I5 about 10 miles or so and camp at Valley of the Rogue State Park, right on the river.

RE: Theodore Roosevelt National Park

If you are coming from Glacier, using US 2 and seeing the north unit first makes a lot of sense. It is one of the least visited parks in the entire system. There was only one campground and when we were there, only the camp host was with us. Also, they were having an anniversary of some sort and one of the rangers brought a sheet cake in to share in the visitors center. Really laid back outfit and a great place to experience the park. We enjoyed both sections but preferred the north unit.

RE: Yosemite info needed

Sonora Pass is a no no. Also subject to snow closures and that 23% grade is no fun at.

RE: Newsom signs bill to ban the sell of gas powered generators

OK folks, let's all take a deep breath. No where in the text of the actual bill does it mention or allude to generators. https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=202120220AB1346 It does specifically address small, gas powered equipment like lawn mowers and leaf blowers. Small is the operative word.

RE: Where to get steering alignment done for a class A?

Another source might be Brazel's in Centralia, Wa. Next down the road is Henderson's. If you make it to Southern California, Redlands Tire. All can do RV's, both alignments and repairs as needed.

RE: Redwoods...Ave of the Giants and Newton Drury Pkwy

Just returned from Ancient Redwoods. Conveniently located near the Founders Grove and the road to HoneyDew past the Rockefeller forest (best giant redwoods in my opinion). Good people and a quiet location.

RE: Oregon to charge 25% more for out of state RV campers

Oregon State Parks are among the best in the country. Like NamMedevac70, I also enjoy the benefit of the disabled veterans camping program, even though I am not an Oregon resident. 10 days a month free camping is hard to beat. Those with service connected disabilities should look into this. Thank you Oregon.

Notice that the OP is from Texas. You can confirm with their DMV how it will be treated.

RE: Just beginning to do homework

I would second the comment about the amount of time to get to Alaska from the east coast. I think you will find that you will spend more time in Canada than you plan. From the west coast, I generally take a solid 3 weeks traveling through BC and the Yukon on the way up and about the same returning if I include the Cassiar and Alberta.

RE: Setting up a TOAD

If the hourly labor charge in NJ is roughly $150 an hour, I can't imagine it would take 13 hours to complete the project.

RE: Bad lands area

Wall Drug is meaningful to a lot of folks from South Dakota who relocated during WW2. 70 years ago, as a youngster, we had to stop at Wall to get the free ice water, on our way to the Grandparents farm. In my see America Second tour in 1969, I had to stop for the free ice water and free cake donut for Veterans or Active Duty. Wall Drug is accurately portrayed as a giant tourist trap now..it hasn't always been. My last stop there it took more time to find a parking space for the RV and toad than it did to see the town.

My experience is similar to Ford Truck Guy. In my last RV, the folks at Batteries Plus Bulbs not only had the best price on the four 6 volt GC's but removed the old ones and installed the new ones for me. Only good things to say about them.

RE: Rexhall aerbus vs Fleetwood pace arrow

I've owned both also. I liked the floor plan better in Fleetwood but the fit and finish of the Rexhall. I was at the factory for the Rexhall and they made extra modifications for me for no extra cost. Too bad they no longer exist.
