RE: Questions for Quilters

We have done Paducah, a couple of times, Hamilton & I believe if there is one, we have qualified for an award for visiting a quilt shop in every state of the continental plus Alaska as well as every province of Canada. She will be working on her 'shopped all counties' award next.

RE: Travel trailer necessities

The most important necessity is a pad of paper & pencil to write down the necessity as you find out what you need. For the first few trips be sure to camp near a Lowes & a Walmart. Pink flamingoes are not a necessity. This is a necessity. First setup & last taken down at the campsite. https://i.imgur.com/1h9InkPl.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image.

RE: California Sierras - Yosemite etc - July 2021

We might be heading back that way this year. Will give Yosemite a pass this time but maybe more time in Sequoia.

RE: Questions for Quilters

My DW has been getting to be a pretty serious quilter for a few years now. She has everything that she needs onboard the 5er. The sewing machine is not as fancy as the one at home but it does the job. Everything else is on a smaller scale than what is at home. On nice days when she needs space she will work on the picnic table. She peruses over planned trips on the laptop, not so much to see where we are going, but to look for quilt shops along the way. Everyone in the family knows what they are getting for Christmas each year. Something quilted.

RE: Bay Of Fundy / Nova Scotia

If you go around the Cabot Trail, go clockwise. That puts you in the lane farther from the sea. There is one (at least) steep downhill. Based on our trip about 45 years ago. Ok, I'll bite-why would you want to be "farther from the sea"? To avoid the screams of the passenger as they look down the drop offs on the passenger side. Really, it is not that bad. I'll take drop offs of mountain driving to lunatic city drivers any day.

RE: Biltmore

Wherever you go there is almost always a place to stay that few know about. Ashville is no exception. You can pay top dollar at the local KOA or you can stay at the Ashville Fairgrounds opposite the airport, FHU/50amp, for a fraction of the price. Nothing fancy, carpark camping, no grass, no table, great views of distant mountains, midweek you might have the place to yourself.

RE: Group 27 deep cycle battery + 2000W inverter

As pointed out a group 27 is not much of a battery. A pair of group 31s, a pair of 6V GC or a single 4D will be needed to provide necessary AHs to run the fridge for a usable length of time.

RE: East Coast Road Trip????? Pandemic?

Just go. We got out of Bermuda 3 days after the airport was reopened last August, picked up our truck & trailer with no real solid travel plans & were gone for 3 months. RV travel is basically a solitary activity. The only contact we have with others is CG office staff & a weekly trip to a market. Any other contact is by our own choice.

RE: CA Hwy 1

I did some looking at some of the switchbacks on Google street view. Did not see anything worse than experienced on some of the access roads to the Blue Ridge Parkway.

CA Hwy 1

It is winter & time to think about places to go this year. What is Hwy 1 like from Bodega Bay to Leggett? We have done Hwy 1 N to S before, Fort Bragg to Bodega Bay no issues dragging the trailer. We are just under 55'LOA & have done our share of CO passes, OR passes, TN & NC Appalachian backroads with it in tow. Mountains & small roads don't usually scare us. The section of some concern is DeHaven to Leggett with trailer. Are there any official length restrictions along that section?

RE: Opinion on Resort fees

The DW has her price point set at about $35. Anything above the grumbling starts. Anything above $45 produces screaming. Pools don't tempt us at all. This is our idea of somewhere to swim. https://i.imgur.com/5wcwpQ4l.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image.

RE: Watkins Glen ny

We did Watkins Glen SP & found a number of sites long enough to accommodate our 35'LOA 5er provided that one is happy hanging off the back of the site & unable to use rear stabilisers.

RE: Bay Of Fundy / Nova Scotia

Going back to that area is our Plan A as well however hope is fading for the border to be open. The closure keeps on getting extended. We want to go back to Newfoundland & be there for at least a month.

RE: Grand Teton Campgrounds new reservation deal

Nope, not for us either. We are also travellers rather than vacationers so while we have a pretty good idea of where we are going, we don't necessarily know when we will be there. 14 years of at least 5 months on the road each year & we seldom make reservations. We have done Yellowstone & Gros Ventre 4 times. Never a reservation. Gros Ventre one time over a July 4th weekend.We arrived on the Thursday, plenty of sites, & left the following Tuesday, the place was virtually empty. The busy nights were Saturday & Sunday. Allow reservations, yes, but hold a certain number of sites, suitable for all sizes, on a first come basis.

RE: Avoiding Low clearance routes

We have 14 seasons & at least 1800 nights behind us. We make an effort to stay OFF the interstates. We have never had to back away from a bridge with our 12'10" air draft though we have done the middle of the road a few times just to be sure. The biggest risk is in the CG. We have backed away from a gas station overhang a very few times. Anywhere selling diesel will have a high enough roof if there is not a remote diesel pump somewhere. Height clearance is simply not an issue to sweat over.

RE: Shore power plug conversion?

If I could easily switch to a marine hardware setup I probably would. I spent 25 years in the saltwater cruising marine world before joining the muddy feet club. There is a reason that everything marine costs so much more than its RV counterpart. Where everything RV is plastic the same item marine is likely to be stainless steel.

RE: Southern Maryland Sojourn

OK, have to agree, the Eastern Shore would probably secede if given the opportunity & remove the Bay Bridge. Too many 'come here's' over there these days. Coming from the north it is still a great idea to bear left off of 95 at Wilmington & follow your nose to the smell of chicken manure & crabs.

RE: Southern Maryland Sojourn

What part of southern MD do you have in mind? The Western Shore or the Eastern Shore. The Eastern Shore is a whole nuther world. The further down & away from the highway you go, the further back in time you travel. The dialect is very much old English to the ear. Drive out to the end of the road at someplace like Hoopersville & you almost feel like you are in the remote north someplace were it not for the air traffic in & out of Baltimore & Washington. There are some great SPs on the Eastern Shore too. Wonderful kayaking in parks such as James Island SP, Crisfield & Martinak SP on the Choptank River, Denton.

RE: Towing with a dually or single?need help please

What is the difference between a SRW & a DRW? Possibly this is. Notice that the truck is not still attached to the trailer. The DRW truck had the extra stability & stayed upright. The truck remained upright & on the road. The trailer tore out of the truck & barrel rolled down the embankment. Sure any SRW can pull a big 5er. You don't need a DRW till that split second when you really NEED that DRW. That is when your life just might depend on those extra two wheels. Notice also what the kingpin did to the 18,000lb hitch when it broke out of the truck. Trailer weight at the time of the blowover was less than 13,000 lb. https://i.imgur.com/EbNPIQ4l.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image. https://i.imgur.com/qkYMtpxl.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image.
