RE: Glacier National Park Info

The crowds aren't anything like YNP and actually we never noticed a problem on the west side. We stayed over there a couple of times and on the east side several times. The problem can be when will the Going to the Sun road be opened. That was delayed the last couple of times we were up there. You probably can't be sure it will be open before early July. Varies year to year of course. Weather is also a big question, nice sunny days seem to be at a minimum. Glacier is absolutely a hiking park, meaning you have to get out and hike to see the park. Not that much to see other than the GTTS road. Not much boondocking on the east side since that is mostly Indian Reservation. More on the west side but down south. Do not try Hungry Horse reservoir or at least be prepared not to find a space. It is very popular with the locals and was filled mid week when we checked. Lots of dispersed camping along Hwy 2 south of the park along the river that the highway follows. On the west side do take a day trip up to Bowman Lake in the north, stop at the small cafe for their famous cinnamon buns. As for Canada go up on the east side to their Peace Park which is the northern boundary of Glacier.

RE: 2011 F350 95k miles, 6.7 Supecrew, single axle

Differential and Transfer case oil should be changed, radiator probably flushed, maybe transmission flushed and new fluid. Fuel Filters too. I have a 2012 and I'm going thru this maintenance this year. If that's a 2011 6.7 it is actually a 2011.5 which was the initial appearance for the 6.7.

RE: Driving through D.C.

Just don't, can't comment on alternate routes but most people camp outside DC and use metro to get in. Not applicable to your case but you really don't want to drive in there. We drove on the ring road w/o our RV to get to the Smithsonian Space Museum by the airport and it was a real lesson.

RE: Grand Lake, CO from the west

I don't know how you get to Grand Lake which is on the west side of RMNP by going thru the park and over Trail Ridge. It's either east on I70 then north on 40. Or Catch 40 in the west and go east on that. We did I-70 but we were coming from the east. We left on 125 and 127 into WY. I don't recall any killer grades that way but I am not sensitive to those.

RE: Florida Keys

It's like getting a spot in Yosemite. Be online at the instant the clock ticks over. Have multiple windows open to the reservation site. Start clicking the spot you want, a minute or two before the clock rolls over. And last, have good luck.

Recommended 16 inch LT tires for TT

I'm getting rid of our 15 inch Marathons on our TT and moving to 16in probably LT225/75R16 with new rims. I have people recommend 16 inch Michelin Defenders but those are well over $200 each. I see someone used GR Commercial T/A with good results but someone else suggested asking for ideas. Please don't restart the LT vs ST fight.

RE: Tire tread depth

So how did those BFG LT Commercial T/A work, I'm thinking about jumping off the ST bandwagon and going up to 16 in LT tires on my TT. I recently noticed I have Marathons on them. People have recommended Michelin Defenders but those are over $200 each.

RE: Your Favorite Browser?

I'm so used to FF that I find it hard to jump to a different browser, I'm tried Chrome for a week or so and it just didn't behave as I expected. Tried MS Edge which is now a Chrome clone and pretty much the same thing. Part of the problem is the suite of plugins I use. They all seem to be fine use the one you like.

RE: Working in California

I agree that volunteering does not sound like a 'gainful' employment. But Cali, NY and other such states are well known to take the most expansive view possible of your residence status and to pursue people who they believe are residents for taxes. They have been known to take legal measures and people have to hire lawyers to fight them off. "A special division of the FTB has for years systematically targeted seasonal “part-time” residents for audit (I use the term “part-time” loosely, since we are talking about nonresidents who spend part of the year here, not part-time legal residents per se; but the term has stuck). Though Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and Sonoma counties experience their share of audits, historically the most common casualties are affluent “snowbirds” who own vacation homes in the Palm Springs area as an escape from the winter blasts of the Midwest or northern states. In fact, many of the major cases in residency taxation are eerily similar: they usually involve Midwesterners who own winter vacation homes in Palm Springs and environs. If the FTB finds significant taxable income coupled with meaningful contacts with California (such as a vacation home, business interests or long visits to the state), it can lead to the launch of a full-blown residency audit." The part time residency trap Read that article Once again I urge you to call one or more of the places you are considering and talking to their bookkeeper for a local view of the situation. Are you really expecting to volunteer for more than 180 days?

RE: Bahia Honda State Park, FL and Verizon jet pack

Yeah Bahia Honda is probably the one most difficult Florida park to get into. But none of the State Parks in the Keys is easy to get a reservation for. Last time we stayed at Bahai Honda we just stopped when driving by on the spur of the moment and they had a cancellation. There are plenty of parks on Marathon, we like Pirates Cove there and it's moderately prices in the off season for the Keys that is.

RE: Win 7 Question

$25 K??!! Why the heck so much unless you have some exotic hardware. You can buy a good computer for $2K or much less, and transfer the files and software to the new box from the old one. I resisted Win10 for a long time but finally gave in and find that it runs just about anything Win7 does. There are some exceptions, generally old games and with enough persistence you can get those running. One of your local computer shops can handle the whole thing for you. But for Win7 you can keep on running it until the computer dies, no security updates so get a good antivirus if you go online at all.

RE: How to improve 2017 Ford 350 head light output? See Update.

As a semi proof I've found that I can keep my headlights on high and drive around and have never ever been flashed by oncoming drivers.. Brilliant. I mean as a test and even then they aren't that bright.

RE: St. Louis to Central FL

We have done the first route any number of times, mainly going the opposite way. Memphis has never been that big a deal except for once when there seemed to be some concert or something south of Memphis and there was a traffic slowdown where people we trying to exit the road. For the most part these mid-sized cities are easier to go thru than spend an hour or more going around. Not to include someplace like Chicago or LA of course. My wife has a major aversion to St Louis tho and has since we went thru it 20 or 25 years ago. So I divert around that town. Atlanta is another no big deal town.

RE: How to improve 2017 Ford 350 head light output? See Update.

I have a no proof theory about these new trucks, Fords in particular. I believe that Ford has intentionally aimed the headlamps lower than they would normally be because if people load up the back of the truck bed that pushes the rear end down and thus the front end goes up. Blinding people. So to counter that they aim the lights low in the first place. As a semi proof I've found that I can keep my headlights on high and drive around and have never ever been flashed by oncoming drivers. As for changing the lamps out, I thought it was a major PITA on my 2012 F350 where you have to partly dissemble the front of the truck to get the light housing out where you can work on it. I had one burn out and replaced it with another HID.

RE: Ford Puck System

It should have four pockets arranged in a rectangle, with a larger hole in the center (for a gooseneck). They may have plastic covers over them. These will be more or less centered over the rear axle. You should have a 7 way plug in the side of the bed near the tail gate for the fiver cable to connect to. I can't think of reason to have those holes unless you are set up for the puck system.

RE: Secluded RV Sites in Florida

It is a small distance north of Ocala, but Paynes Prairie State Park would be another option. They just renovated the campground but I haven't been there yet. We were there a couple of weeks ago to hike a trail, the cg didn't seem to be full. Probably FHU in the CG. Last time we stayed in the cg a tree fell on our TV...heh. Could happen anywhere of course. The place is on the soggy side right now but everything around here is to some extent. As for Alexander I checked the rec.gov website and they do have available sites next week.

RE: Working in California

I believe the magic number is 181 days, whatever you do don't stay past that point or the ill effects mentioned above will kick in. Personally I'd be out of the state weeks before that and be able to prove that I was.

RE: Free remote BLM location

He mentions the Burr Trail which is in near Boulder in the Grand Staircase. The Grand Staircase NM is all BLM land and that is usually open for boondocking unless marked otherwise. Doing a little looking I found this: Camping Which sounds like the spot.
