RE: Hurricane coming

face it into the wind, put your stabilizers down and hope that's enough.

RE: RV park in Las Vegas

Can't tell you about a park, but you can get to the Strip on the Strip Bus that runs from the downtown station out to the end of the strip and back, etc.

RE: Should I level the RV?

I think it might be better to level the rig because the stabilizers will be good to have if you get a strong windstorm, and who knows what kind of winter storms we might get.

RE: Overnite dry camp passing thru Las Vegas, NV?

we have stayed at the Railroad Pass casino and truck stop south of Henderson several times and never had a problem.

RE: Durango, CO to Baggs, WY

US 550 crosses three high passes between Durango and Montrose. you will be on the outside lane most of the time. lots of climbing, descending and curves. Beautiful, but not something I would enjoy in a big motorhome. There is an alternative route out of Cortez CO but I've never done it...only seen it mentioned here on the forum. After Montrose, no problem with 71 or 13. There is a nice rest stop sponsored by the Lions club at Rifle, just after you cross over 71 going north into Rifle.

RE: Waste water totes for fresh water

I can't think of a reason against using a new water tote for fresh water, but I would be sure to mark it clearly as potable water ONLY.

RE: I80 in Wyoming to hyw191 to Vernal Utah

191 takes you over a high pass, but it is a long, gradual climb out of Rock Springs. At the top of the pass, there is a really nice campground called Firefighter's Memorial, with water and a dump station. the descent into Vernal is steep but measured with switchbacks, so just use low gear and watch your brakes.

RE: Pactola Lake campground & Sheridan Lake campground

busy time of year in the Black Hills. many hundreds of motorcycles for the Sturgis Rally. Best to call ahead and try for a reservation somewhere.

RE: Have you ever used all the stove burners at once?

Never have had the need, yet, and not looking for a menu that would require it, LOL.

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: We all use different ways.

well said, thank you.

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.
