RE: US 395 Kamer Junction to Hesperia

Pete, things are a little better than before -- some repaving, some additional passing lanes. And if your choice is 395 versus going through metro LA, 395 can be a little faster. Check traffic on Google Maps as you approach the area, in order to choose the least bad route. ;) Having said that, they are starting to build subdivisions again in the Hesperia/Adelanto area -- construction had come to a halt after the real estate crash of 2008, but land values have recovered, and the bulldozers are no longer dozing. ;) So once those houses get built and occupied, there will be additional congestion on 395 in the vicinity of I-15. Thanks.

US 395 Kamer Junction to Hesperia

Hi, has anyone driven this section lately? Last Spring heading northbound the road was rough! Plus a lot of construction. This time we are headed South. Thanks in advance Pete

RE: Hwy 97 BC to California

We just drove 97 from Vernon BC to I-84 in Oregon, road conditions were good, including Blewett pass, but this time of year, the weather changes so fast, I recommend you check wsdot for road conditions first.

RE: Video of why 1/2 tons shouldn’t tow 5th wheels

OK, first off... I'm not a fan of half-tons towing 5er's. Like a political stance...you're not going to change my mind on that Next... I don't like this guys videos because he mainly just talks to talk, and you never see his face. Can't trust someone that's afraid to show their face LOL But really... Why do we keep hearing the same old tired statement that 5er's are ALWAYS going to be 20% to 25% pin weight? Maybe that's true for some models, and perhaps it was a good rule of thumb 10-20 years ago. But you see what they're doing with 5er's now...the way they move the axles forward? That's how they're making these things theoretically "half-ton" towable. But for such an "expert", why does this guy choose to make such statements when you can go straight to the manufacturer's website and see that the reported pin weight is 1,443 pounds? Most manufacturers reported pin weight is an empty pin weight. My old (2010) Montana's pin weight was over 1000 lbs heavier loaded than non loaded. Why so much? It had double pane windows, washing machine in the bedroom, 4 door fridge, 4 6v golf cart batteries, king size bed, heavy tool box in storage, propane generator, plus I swear DW hid the kitchen sink in their somewhere along with 500 lbs of "girls stuff", her sewing machine itself gave you ape arms! OK 500 lbs may be slightly over, but you get the point. Yes I was within legal weight limits on my 1 ton truck, but barely.

RE: Canuck with no medical insurance - prepare for emergenncy"?

Fortunately, (or unfortunately, depending upon your point of view) the US is a generous country and won't let you die or suffer in pain on the hospital lawn. You will be billed for the services, and the cost will be astronomical. However there are no debtor prisons or medieval torture chambers to encourage you to pay. So if you are OK with taking advantage of the taxpayers in the country you are visiting you are good to go. It is being irresponsible and selfish, but when has that ever stopped anyone from getting what they want. I agree with you 100% and I'm Canadian. Unless of course, he has the means to pay for any critical care before or after going back to Canada.

RE: Hope to Cache Creek

As long as there are no rock slides or other issues on the #1, I'd take it. But that road can have issues. The Coq is where the early seasons of Highway through Hell were all about (but that's winter) I used to live in Merritt and I've driven the Coke (all 3 sections) dozens of times, summer and winter, that show is so over dramatized it's not funny.

RE: Hope to Cache Creek

Hwy 5 Hope to Kamloops (Coquihalla, locally known as the Coke) is all freeway with 2 long hard pulls and boring scenary. I recommend Hwy 1 as well.

El Centro RV Parks for Snowbirds

Hi, We drove through Rio Bend RV and Golf resort and Sunbeam Lake RV resort and liked them both, for a 4 month Winter stay. The place we stayed in Gold Canyon for 8 Winters has out priced our budget, and we can stay at the above places for just over half the cost. Being Canadian the exchange rate takes a big bite, after the banks take their ridiculous share, it costs us $1.37+ Canadian per US $, that's 37%! Any of your thoughts and opinions would be really appreciated. We don't golf and heard that as nice as Rio Bend is, there is a goose poop problem near the water. Thanks in advance Pete & Terry

RE: What is the best dinghy

We found our 2017 Equinox V6 AWD Premier to be an excellent toad, quiet, comfortable and with the V6, powerful even with 4 people and weekend luggage aboard. Gas mileage isn't the best, but realistically IMHO, if you can afford a diesel pusher and fuel for it towing a vehicle, the the toads economy shouldn't be a big consideration. Pete
