RE: Nebraska Hwy 2

We used it several years ago. The western part (up to Thedford) is miles and miles of narrow road with small shoulders, and views of sand and sagebrush with a few, off road villages, and not a rest stop in sight. :) We were informed later that the villages offered a rest stop respite had we chosen to explore them. East of Thedford, there is the Nebraska National Forest with campground, but we didn't explore that either. We headed south toward North Platte.

RE: Moorcroft, Wy to Buffalo, Wy

we have used that route from Buffalo to Custer, SD a couple of times in the recent past and it was good, then.

RE: leaving the stick and brick for the summer

we leave it on 80. humidity is high enough. Also use the oil in the toilet water.

RE: Seeking Simple RV Recipes

a key part of my "fast" food meals is precooking hamburger meat, chicken meat, and homemade soup, packaged in 1-meal portions. I also take cooked bacon and precooked sausage patties. I can make tacos, chicken alfredo, and omelettes in a jiffy. Sometimes I cook up mini meatloaves and chicken wings to take in the freezer. I use packed mixes or jars of alfredo sauce, taco mix, gravy mix and cheese sauce mix. My vegies are store bought frozen.

RE: Grand Junction Colorado Traveling North on CO-139

it's a great drive via car or suv, but not for trailers or motorhomes. I guess you could do it with a casita or something that size.

RE: Beartooth pass

Beartooth Pass is outstanding, but not for motorhomes or big 5th wheels going DOWN. I suppose some could drive UP the pass, but there are several tight hairpin turns. We have been on it twice in our car, and the only rvs I recall seeing were small trailers and campers on pickups and not too many of them. There is a nice federal campground on the west side just before you start down that you can get to through Yellowstone Park. And some decent campgrounds at the bottom of the pass near Red Lodge.

RE: Tow dolly or not?

IMO, the only downside to using a dolly is that it gives you, parking wise, the need for a third piece of equipment and lots of rv sites are too small for that.

RE: Taos in late April and May?

With climate changes and drought conditions, a lot of what used to be is very iffy nowadays. You'll just have to check the weather ahead every day so you'll know what's coming at you.

RE: Towing fifth wheel from Moran to Colter Bay

as stated, 287 it is. The little hamlet of Moran is set just before you reach the Y junction, which goes north or south. I think the old road went through Moran, but now it by passes the little hamlet.

RE: Camp Hosting - Pros and Cons

when we first began traveling with our MH, we camp hosted at a state park in NE and found it very interesting and fun and so we returned to the same park for several years, hosting for a month at the end of their season. We had one season with minor people problems like college boys chasing college girls, and sneaky locals coming in without paying to use shower facilities. No problem for us...we notified the office. The last year, there was a forest fire and we had to evacuate the park in the middle of the night, but the nearby walmart let most of us stay in their parking lot for a few days as we waited to see if we were going to be allowed to camp again or not...and another state park 20 miles away offered to let us use a spare host site, so we moved over there until our "season" was done. So all in all, we enjoyed our stint of camp hosting at Chadron State Park. We didn't do it anymore, mostly because it was, and is, hard to find a park or camp that doesn't expect you to stay the whole season.... several months.

RE: Simple RVing recipes

I don't like frying anything inside, so I fry up several 1 lb packs of ground beef for tacos, sloppy joes, or hamburger stew. I also make a big pot of soup to take packed in 1 or 2 servings in the freezer. Hamburgers and wings are cooked on the grill outside. I cook up chicken for making alfredo, or salad. Omelettes are always good and easy. I take about 3 lb cooked bacon with me and a big package of cooked sausage patties. And we like frozen mixed vegies.

RE: Mount Rushmore to Glacier NP

An alternate route is 85 north from Spearfish up through N Dakota to highway 2, then west to Browning, then 89 up to East Glacier or stay on 2 to go around to West Glacier.

RE: Yellowstone heading east

16 is better than 14, but the descent is long, so watch your brakes. there is a dump station near the top of the pass if you need it.

RE: Needles to Quartzsite?

we, too, have used both routes and find the AZ side more interesting and scenic.
