RE: Questions on using a Dutch Oven

definitely ditto to using a dutch oven liner so you don't have to clean and reseason the oven.

RE: Spearfish, SD

Sidney, NE is a good place to restock your groceries, etc. before going north into tourist country. And we like shopping at Cabelas, too. There is a nice rv park at Cabelas. Custer State Park, IMO, is as good or better than any National Park. It is well run and has great scenery and the scenic drives are well worth your time. Rushmore...not so much, but that's just us. Same in Devil's Tower...good for a one night stay. Buffalo WY has two or three rv parks in town that are good, but you could go on up to Ranchester WY and stay at a little mom and pop rv place in town and then take your toad up the mountain to Burgess Junction and the Medicine Wheel. It's a beautiful drive. You can get a sandwich, etc at Burgess Junction or take a picnic lunch and have it up at Medicine Wheel.

RE: Where do full timers go out west to escape the heat?

we live in San Antonio TX area, so in late July, August and Sept, we head for high altitudes. We like camping up by Dutch John in Flaming Gorge, UT. We like camping near Pinedale, WY, and we love camping in the Tetons Nat'l park in Jackson Hole. Sometimes, we go up the west side of the Tetons to Henry's Lake ID, and tool around Yellowstone Park from there. Then we head east over to Cody, which can still be warm but not overly so in Sept. Then we go to Custer SD to take in the big buffalo roundup festival at the end of Sept before heading south toward home.

RE: Quick overnight

yes, we do it regularly. but be prepared for the trucks to come and go most of the night. if that will bother you, look elsewhere.

RE: Traveling in a group— How do you handle it?

I agree with you. Cell phones will keep you connected as much as you need or want and meeting for lunch breaks or rest stops, etc will keep you fairly close in miles.

RE: Calgary Stampede Advise

we stayed about 50 miles west of Calgary, in the foothills of the Rockies in a provincial park, but we were in a smaller, 30 ft MH at that time. Hopefully there are more rv parks out that way, these days. whatever you decide to do, you should do it NOW because Calgary is a very popular rodeo, and make sure to plan on time enough to take in the Fair because that will be going on, too. Also, if you stay out of town somewhere, check to see where you can drive in to a parking lot (like at the college) and take the train down to the fairgrounds. MUCH easier than looking for a parking spot down there and it was free when we used it 20 years ago.

RE: Pita Bread

This is the best camp bread I've ever "et". :) Pan de campo (camp bread), long a favorite of cowboys in South Texas, has become a trademark of outdoor chef Ruben Hinojosa, who has garnered top prizes in several competions with this recipe. 2 cups flour 2 level tsp baking powder 1 tsp salt 1 tsp sugar 3/8 cup cooking oil 1/2 cup cold milk Mix all the ingredients, but don't knead the dough too much. If it feels dry, add a few drops of milk. Roll the dough into a circle about 1/2-inch thick. (Thinner if you want a crisper loaf.) Place into a well-greased, preheated 14-inch Dutch oven, and poke a few holes in the dough with a fork to allow steam to escape. Bake 10-15 minutes, turning the bread over after about 6 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve hot. Some cooks prefer shortening instead of oil, others use water instead of milk. Experiment to find the version that suits your taste. (Folks cooking in regular ovens will want to set the temperature to 400 degrees.) 3c flour 1/2 tsp salt 1 1/4 tsp baking soda 1 1/3 C warm water Mix the dry ingredients and add water kneading to form a soft dough that is soft, yet not sticky. Stretch and pull the dough until thin. Tear off a piece of dough and poke a hole in the center with your finger or thumb. Drop each piece into a skillet of hot cooking oil and brown on both sides. Serve it while hot topped with honey or powdered sugar for a sweet treat (Yum-Yum).

RE: Socorro, NM campground

there is an rv park at the southern end of Socorro, but it has been several years since we stayed there. at the time, it was clean and quiet, a good overnight stop. we've also stayed at the BLM campground over near Carrizozo, and it is VERY nice, with water and dump and elec and the town close by if you want a cafe.

RE: Best area to boondock in Quartzsite for two nights

you'll see some BLM campgrounds...no frills...as you're moving south toward Quartzite... a few miles north of the town.

RE: Casper wy to yellowsrone

both good roads. the only thing to watch for is an early snow fall when you're crossing the pass on either road.

RE: Camping Lights

I prefer the dark, but I do like a small ground light to mark my door and steps, because it's hard to see sometimes.

RE: Yellowstone Trip

if you have time, take a day drive out of Cody and drive the Chief Joseph scenic highway up to Bear Tooth Pass and down to Red Lodge MT and back to Cody. Great drive!!!! not for pulling a trailer or motorhome! Cody to Ten Sleep to Buffalo and 90 on to Devil's tower. Crossing on 16 is the easiest of the three routes, but not a piece of cake, either. Going up out of Ten Sleep is not a hard climb. Going down to Buffalo is a lonnnnng descent, so watch your brakes. Other than that, it's a gorgeous drive, and there is water and a dump station up near the top of the pass.
