Big Bend Hwy 118 or 385

Im wondering if there is a difference between taking Hwy 385 or Hwy 118 into Big Bend National Park. I'm sort of interested in checking out Terlingua but if 385 is a better road then we won't. Has anyone done both?

RE: Guide for camping at Corps of Engineers CG

Which has the newest version. My problem with campground books things quickly change and you still have to use the internet

RE: Help planning a Washington State/Oregon trip

For the most bang for your tourist dollar, I'd fly into Portland and first go to McMinnville to the Air Museum and see the Spruce Goose. I don't even like airplanes and I loved that little museum. From there Id head south on I5 to Eugene and cut over the Cascades on Hwy 58 to 97 and check out Crater Lake. Heading north, I'd stay on 97 all the way up to the North Cascades NP. BUT I would take a little side trip when I got to the Columbia River and head west on Hwy 3 and check out the Bonneville Dam and Multnoma Falls. Hwy 3 is the Historic Road and your will be awed by the views and the drive. Next I'd cross over the Columbia on the Bridge of the Gods and get on Hwy 97 again and head straight north to North Cascades, making sure you stop at Lake Chelan and take the ferry ride up the lake. Now catch Hwy 2 and cross over the Cascades again. Its a beautiful ride and it will take you close to Whidbey Island where you can catch one of our famous ferries over to Port Townsend where you will start your Olympic NP adventure.Check out Hurricane Ridge, Ruby Beach, and the HoH rain forest. If you follow 101 around, it will eventually loop you back to the town of Olympia where you can get Hwy 12 to Paradise on Mt Rainier, then since your passing it, stop at MT St Helens and back to Portland. Happy travels

RE: Route from Astoria, OR to Wenatchee, WA

While I love 12, If I were towing but still wanted a scenic drive, I'd take 14 or I84 t0 97 and then north.

RE: Monument Valley

If you don't mind spending a few bucks there is a small campground about 40 miles from Monument called Sand Island. Its very nice, but get there early as it does fill up.

RE: Vancouver, WA to Cape May, NJ (November 1st)

We have taken I 90 as last as the first of December without any weather issues but could have just been very lucky. If I were you, I'd plan to leave a few days earlier if possible so you have a buffer zone just in care. The only thing I hate about I90 was Chicago Chicago and Chicago, so we took some secondary roads just south.

RE: Southern Utah in late June?

If I were you, I would just make plans to go. Predicting next years weather is pretty much a guessing game and one of those damned if you do, damned if you don't situations. Going someplace like Rocky Mountain National Park in June would probably guarantee cooler weather.

RE: Which campground at Custer State Park?

I just can't imagine anyplace being bad at Custer. That is one place I'd love to just move to, we had so much fun exploring the area, eating at the small mom and pop restaurants in town and even ducking the hail storms that seemed to happen often in summer. Grandkids got to see their first buffalo up close and personal and enjoyed swimming in the lake also.

RE: Trekking poles

See, I was right, only one who didn't know about them.

Trekking poles

Thought I'd pass this along. My husband walks with a cane and has a balance problem, but loves to hike. We use ADA approved trails but but I still worry. We joined a disabled hiking group and they suggested buying trekking poles. They come adjustable so that when you hold them your arms are at a 90 degree angle, but if you are over 6 foot, you need to make sure you get the right size and if in doubt go to a store like REI for expert advise and fix. They are under $40 bucks so worth the cost. (Im probably the only one who didn't know this LOL)

RE: Road condition of I-40 in Oklahoma

I thought the worst part of I 40 was Gallup east. But that was two years ago.

RE: First Real Outing of the Year

Roy&Lynne, WOW! Sorry to hear or all of your bad luck! Hopefully y’all are doing OK! Our lack of camping was mostly “self imposed”! memtb Maybe we will see you on the road.

RE: First Real Outing of the Year

Boy I am feeling your pain. We had planned to leave last November but a broken hip postponed that goal. Then we circled June and a car accident with injury crushed that plan. So now we have end of October circled and have our fingers crossed. At least we have had over a year to plan for the trip, so we have a mild winter plan and a harsh winter plan. I was hoping for mild but at this point, I don't care, just being on the road will be wonderful

RE: Sometime we win...National Forests and Wildlife Refuge

Always seems that people want us to use renewable resources but cry when other people try to harvest renewable resources. Trees are renewable, harvesting trees provides jobs, resources to build houses. It is far better to allow controlled harvesting than uncontrolled forest fires. Regardless, nature will backfill the area anew. But the problem is, you can't replant a forest. They replant a tree farm with only marketable trees and we lose the diversity that makes a forest.

RE: Overnite stop on the 101 olympic peninsula

We love Salt Creek Campground. The dry area is tucked into the woods and is a great place to stay.

RE: Seattle, WA to Moab, Utah

Looks like you got a lot of advise. We are heading that way this fall depending on the weather. but plan to take 95 to 395 and then across Nevada on Hwy 50.

RE: Tucson to Olympia, WA

Living near Olympia we have done them all, twice, thrice and sometimes to often to count If I had to chose I would pick Hwy93 thru Nevada until you get to I84. Take it to Pendleton and cross the Columbia on I 82 to Yakima and then Hwy 12 to I 5 and up to Olympia. Its not the most scenic but its the fastest most scenic and keeps you out of most metro areas.

RE: where can I do this (purchase a lot and put an rv on it)?

What's to stop me from just buying a nice lot somewhere and putting my trailer on it, using it maybe 10-20 weeks out of the year for camping? Presumably, zoning laws. But seriously, is this possible any place in the northeast us? (MA, ME, NH, VT)? Before you invest, make sure you check state, county and city zoning laws. We had a gentleman invest in some land here in Washington and then found out it wasn't allowed.
