RE: Needles to Quartzsite?

RE: Road Condition West Bound into Cody, WY on US Hwy 14

ditto to Muskegon's advice....14 is hard on any rig. 14A isn't called the Oh MY God hill for nothing.

RE: Broke down on the road, what's your insurance experience?

we use Coach Net. One time several years ago, we had a blow out on one the rear tires, 30 miles from nearest town. we just pulled off the road a bit, onto a ranch gate drive and waited. They came and changed out the tire. another time, we wanted to buy new batteries and called to find out where we could get some nearby. and last time, a few years ago, we had a serious breakdown and needed a tow to a service that could fix the problem. we were about 200 miles from nearest place. So the tow driver got his first directions mixed up and didn't show up until dark on the highway west of Riverton, WY...anyway, very interesting op... and he hauled us to Riverton and parked us and the next day, another driver from Casper came and hauled us to Casper and a place that could fix the rig. We stayed in the truck parking lot until the final day when they pulled the rig into their garage and did the final work. All very interesting. We explored Casper in our toad, etc. All paid for.

RE: Lost a cooking bet

glad to see the recipe for cheese enchiladas hasn't changed much since my gramma and mama taught me to make it, only we all use/used bacon grease for the fat. and once in awhile, we made some homemade chili con carne to pour over it all. brisket is always good, with a good rub and slow cooking. when my dad still hunted, we used to make a really good venison chili that was always better the next day.

RE: basic driving skills

I agree with learning how before having to do it, and I think all teenagers should learn this basic piece of knowledge as well as how to check the oil etc. Wives, too, if need be.

RE: Quartzsite bound

for some, camping is at its best when you sleep OFF the ground and have a nighttime potty handy. :)

RE: Best Route from Rock Springs, Wy to Yellowstone

Rock Springs to Pinedale to Hoback Junction to Jackson to South gate of Yellowstone. We take this route every year in late summer. We stop in Rock Springs overnight at the Walmart..if we need to stock up before we get into tourist country and prices. We stop again at Warren's Bridge campground which is about 20 miles northwest of Pinedale..has water and a dump station...and puts us about 2 hours from Jackson. We get fuel at Hoback Junction, just after you go through the round about...easy in and out at station. In Jackson, a block before the square downtown, we take the truck route, which is easier than turning at the square. Or, you can turn south at Hoback Junction and go down to Alpine, then go right to Idaho and route 26 over to 20 and north to West Yellowstone. Palisades campground is about 7 miles west of Alpine.. water and dump station there. West Yellowstone has several rv parks, but in heavy demand, so reserve as soon as you can.

RE: Garbage Cans

I use a 2 gallon waste bucket and plastic grocery bags and empty it every day. If we stay in a park with recycle bins, i hang a large kitchen bag on my pantry door knob to collect cans and plastic bottles/jars.

RE: National Forest boondocking sites compatible with big rigs

Out west, most of the, the size of the site will be fine, BUT its the road to get to it that might be rough enough to make you holler!!!! Especially after it has rained recently.

RE: Kanas City, Ks to Yellowstone National Park

I70 west to 83 north to I80, then west to I25 and north to Casper. Then 20 west and north to Thermopolis and 120 on to Cody and 14 into Yellowstone. There are lots of things to see on this route. When you know the date you'll get to Yellowstone, make reservations NOW or as soon as they let you do it.

RE: Rapid City, SD to Yellowstone

take 90 over to Buffalo WY and then take 16 over the Bighorns, then north and west to Cody and west to Yellowstone. Take the route across the park if you want to go to West Yellowstone. All good roads, but don't be surprised by road work in some places. Buffalo has a couple nice rv parks if you're ready to quit at that time Over the mountains, there is a nice rv park on the west side of Ten Sleep, very shady and laid out nice. Up at Cody, there is the Ponderosa RV park on the west side of town, just down the street from the really great Buffalo Bill Museum of the West. Or, out of town about 7 miles, there is Buffalo Bill State Park. Or, further out, there is Wapiti Campground (gov) and further on, Rex Hale campround (gov) We have stayed at all of them and have no complaints. the gov camps do not have hookups. Bon Voyage!
