RE: Food - Utah Mighty Five Loop

the last time we stayed at Thousand Lakes RV park on the west side of Torrey, they offered great Cinnamon Buns in the a.m. and on Fridays, they had a steak supper offered, also very good...not cheap, but good. :) This was about 5 to 7 years ago, so be aware of that.

RE: campground recommendation

re NE Utah from Rock Springs WY.......that's a long drive, but I guess you could do it as a long day trip.......if you're talking about going south down to Dutch John on 191 and then back north through Manila and highway 530, or just reversing up 191 back to Rock Springs. And from what you said about driving a day, camping a night and driving on.... you can do it...but stay at the Firefighters campground south of Dutch John and up on top of the pass. Nice campground.

RE: campground recommendation

ditto to Cabela's at Sidney. But Check out Pine Bluffs WY for an rv park because it is right on the state line and is a pretty little area.

RE: STL > SD > WY Route

your second itinerary sounds better to me... can't help you with the final two legs other than to say we have stayed at Sidney NE (Cabela's rv park), plus walmart, pizza hut, taco johns I think. MO state highway 36 from St. Joseph to Hannibal is a pretty good road if you want to pass up Kansas City and interstate traffic. There's a really nice state park called Wallace a couple miles south of Cameron, MO. Another one called Long Branch state park at Macon, MO.

RE: What is your best Potato Salad recipe

I prefer a sweet relish flavor to my potato salad. I like it simple, with eggs and celery and sweet relish... fancy with red and yellow bell peppers, onion, and bacon bits or diced ham, or served as a hot side made with potatos and italian dressing, bell peppers and onion...no eggs.

RE: Cast Iron pan seasoning Question

my cast iron skillets are old and have been used a lot over the years. when I'm through cooking whatever in them, I pour off any excess grease and sit the skillet in the sink while still hot, and fill it with HOT water. Then when the water cools off a bit, I rinse and scrub with plastic scrubber, if necessary, and then wipe dry with paper towels and spray a light squirt of PAM or any brand oil, then wipe that all over the cooking surface and then put a fresh paper towel in the skillet and store away as usual. I wouldn't call my skillets totally stick-free, but mostly they are and it does depend on how hot I get them.

RE: Should we cancel Myrtle Beach Trip

go, but be cautious. wear your mask and use hand wipes when you're not near a sink to wash your hands. stay away from crowds.

RE: Bighorn National Forest - Hwy 14 or Hwy 16?

they are both scenic. 16 is regarded as the easiest of the routes across the Bighorns, but easy doesn't mean boring. 14 (NOT 14A) is a loooonnnngggg descent from Burgess Junction, so watch your brakes. Most folks stop at Shell Water Falls and rest stop and you can smell the hot brakes when you get out of your truck. :) I personally feel that 16 is the more interesting route of the two.

RE: Washing RV while traveling

we use a truck wash when we need one. they are typically near truck stops along the interstate highways. Blue Beacon is the name of a chain. For our rig, it costs around $40.00 (rate is according to footage of rig) and sometimes, we pay a little more and get our toad washed off at the same time.

RE: Is there an alternate route for Deadmans pass in Oregon?

ditto to the above posts. trucks and motorhomes and 5th wheels all use it every day. it's not like a lot of passes that are narrow and winding with switchbacks, etc.

RE: Big Horn Mountains (Sheridan/Buffalo WY)

I would not take our rig up or down 14A. It's just too hard on brakes and transmission. But 14 is doable. For views, the campground Bald Mountain offers more of that.

RE: Colorado Fall Colors

we stayed at Arrowhead Point RV park, just north of Buena Vista CO and found it nicely located for day drives to Aspen and Leadville. Lots of color in mid to late Sept.

RE: Cleaning a Dutch Oven after use

I'm curious to what others will have to say about it, but if it was me, I'd find a cardboard box that fits the oven and store it without bothering to get the soot off.

RE: Mostly for BCSnob : )

LOL thanks for the chuckle :)

RE: Yellowstone

the park rangers watch that pretty close. I suppose you could get away with it once or twice, but not sure what the penalties are.

RE: New Mexico 'Quarantine" Requirements

can't say I blame NM since it is flanked by AZ and TX on both I 10 and I 40.
