RE: Best route from Merced Ca to Mesa Az

we use the 58 to needles, 95 down to I-10 and straight on to PHX. They have turned 60 into a pretty good traffic carrier east of I-10. If you just want an overnight parking place, the junction at 58 and 395 has a big parking lot just east of the light on the right. we've stayed there, but it's busy with trucks.. and we've stayed at Barstow at the Flying J which is a mile south of the I 15 and 58 junction.

RE: Mice and soap

we use the peppermint on cotton balls, but this past september, we caught two of the little buggers with glue traps. so nothing works perfectly.

RE: toilet treatment for black water tank

we treat ours with cheap liquid detergent and borax, a couple cups of each. we use it to treat the gray water too. start with a couple gallons of water in the tanks. it works very well. we frequently go as long as 10 days before dumping.

RE: Texas to Washington State

We've been over most of the roads mentioned so far in this thread and Islandman's suggestion sounds the best to me for avoiding weather conditions and tough grades.

RE: Stopping at flying j, Cracker Barrel etc

the poster is asking for information/advice....not judgement. shame on those who are snarky without provocation. p.s. walmarts, sams, and even home depots..... just ask management if it's ok.

RE: Road closure (detour) questions

take I 435 up to I 29, then exit onto highway 92 and take that east all the way to I 35. It's a two lane road, but we use it every year with our rig.

RE: I10 Fl. to Ca.

Between San Antonio, TX and Tucson, AZ, there will be a possibility of brief snow/sleet storms that are usually fast moving but make for slick roads for a day or so. Just pay attention to weather reports. you will probably sail right through with no trouble at all.

RE: Camping in Nebraska

Chadron State Park, 9 miles south of Chadron, on 385, is a really nice little state park. as stated, highway 2 is more scenic. At Halsey, there is the Nebraska State Forest Nursery and there is camping there. But be aware that highway 2 is on a main train line with trains running all night long. :) We like overnighting at Sidney because it has a walmart and cabelas. and cabelas has a nice rv park.

RE: Moki Dugway, Should I try it?

NO! the road is narrow and there are overhanging cliffs along the way so you can't hug the inside as close as you would like to.

RE: Dry camping on the way from page to Las Vegas

If you turn off on 64 and go through the Grand Canyon Park and exit out the south gate, you will find national forest land with dry camping just outside the gate.

RE: Blue Beacon Truck Wash

we have used blue beacon etc many times. the one that is most convenient for us is in central AZ, on I 10, near the I 8 junction. they will wash your toad, too...or not, according to your choice.

RE: Best Southern Fried Chicken Batter

this sounds like a good batter recipe, but I like mine better: 1 regular can of beer and 1 1/2 Cups flour...let it sit for at least one hour. Add some seasoning, salt, garlic powder, etc, if you want. you can dip anything into this batter and it's GOOD. :)

RE: I-44 North of Wichita Falls TX

From my map, it looks like US 70 is where the Toll Road begins. So get off at the exit there.

It doesn't hurt to indulge once in awhile...that's ONCE in awhile :)

RE: How about some common courtesy...

guess we are just lucky. The last time I recall listening to a loud genny was a few years ago when we were camped at a national park campground and the owner did pay attention to quiet hours time. as to using them all day....the only time we use ours all day is when it is hot and we need the a/c. but we have some solar panels on top, so they take care of phone charging and tv and even a little crock pot.

RE: Chisos Basin, Big Bend

Big Bend has several dispersed camping sites that hold one or two campsites and are just out of sight of the road...but the roads can be rough if it has rained and then not graded, so check them and their condition out at the Visitor Center. We liked Hammond Draw, about a mile from the visitor center.
