No TC's allowed

From time to time we all hear about places that don't allow Truck Camper, but yet never seem to run into these places. A posting was place on one of the Facebook sites I belong to and sure enough there it is a RV place that states NO Truck Campers. I admit this is the first time I've ever come across a place that said No TC's period! The Great Out Doors I personally wouldn't stay there anyways..too pricey!!!

RE: Banff/Lake Louise/Jasper

It's time for me to start bugging you kind folks again. The DW and I plan to try for Alaska this summer, and hope to spend some time in the Banff to Jasper area on the way. It's hard to narrow down the things we want to do, but we need to in order to have time to see Alaska, too. I'm thinking about 6 nights total in that area. I have a list of things we want to do in each general area: 5 in Banff 6 in Lake Louise 4 in Jasper Does it make more sense to stay in Banff (I'm thinking Tunnel Mountain Trailer Park) for 4 nights and do all the driving to LL or 2 nights in Banff and 2 in LL. We do plan to do 2 nights in Jasper at the end. It seems that for everything we want to do in LL we need to be there early before parking lots fill up. I can see distances on a map, but I'm not sure how that translates into driving time in late July. I hope to make reservations for all areas as soon as the reservation system opens up in Jan. We hope to get at least electric sites if not more. Anyway, if anyone has an opinion, I welcome it. TIA Making reservations well in advance is the way to go if you plan on staying at any of those campgrounds/parks site. We were there this past 2018 summer and it was packed, we stayed in the overflow area near Lake Louise. If you can take a shuttle into Lake Louise, parking fills up fast and is limited.

RE: Anyone want to write?

Is Truck Camper Adventure seeking to cut costs further? Hmmmm Using independent contractors to write articles is inexpensive. Looks as their entire staff are "contributors" except for the "senior editor." Senior to who? http://www.truckcamperadventure.com/about-this-site/ Micheal Smith is also known as "Mello Mike" is the Senor Writer and owner of Truck Camper Adventure. Mike is a friend of mine and he's not getting rich doing this online magazine. Many of us like writing some stories about our adventures and or knowledge we have in regards to truck camping. Does RV.net pay us to promote their website?, the answer is No or pay us when we write our trip reports again the answer is no. Truck Camper Magazine is a place like in a way like RV.net to share our knowledge and adventures focused on TCs I'm Alex Blasingame aka c.traveler2

RE: Repairing aluminum roof

BradW has the right idea about patching hole in aluminum roofs for those large holes. For smaller holes I just use JB wield, it has worked great!

RE: TCM voting time

I'm sorry I am not going through all of those pictures, writing which ones I like and then manually having to type in my top 10 line by line.... TCM those two seem like smart folks and should figure out a better way if they want more engagement I opened two pages of TCM. one on the photo page and one on the photo number entry page, simply wnet back and forth entering my choices as I came to them. Good Luck c.traveler2 Thank you..c.traveler2

RE: TCM voting time

I almost was able to vote, but it said I have to pick 5. OP only has 3. :D Contestants are ONLY allowed to submitted 3 photos, this is only the first round of voting and you can vote up to 10 photos of any that were submitted. TCM changed their contest rules last year and not for the better. Good luck to anybody that has entered this photo contest. c.traveler2

RE: TCM voting time

It seems to me that your pictures should stand or fall on their own merits. I think it would not be fair to the other contestants if I voted for your pictures not because I thought they were the best but just because you asked me to. If you think other submitting photos are better then vote for them or not, your choice.

RE: TCM voting time

I kind of wish some of the photos would get weeded out prior to the voting process. 500+ pics is a lot to view (time consuming) and some are not good at all, like half the tail end of the truck or camper is cut out of the photo, etc. Some have a purpose being like that, others not so much This is the first round of voting to do just that, thin out the herd. I didn't like the change in the photo contest rules myself.

This is us driving my 2007 F250 hauling a 2002 Lance 815. Stop by and see Rhyolte ghost town near the trail-head for Titus Canyon.

RE: Costco vs Sam's Club

The DW and I are planning a trip to Alaska next summer. We are members of Sam's Club as they are the only wholesale club in our area. As I read trip reports from others on an Alaska journey, I can't help but notice that more people report shopping at Costco than Sam's. Is this because of availability of Sam's in the area? We could join Costco for the year if there is any real benefit to doing so. I've never been in a Costco, so I just don't have anything to judge this on. What say ye (or y'all)? Costco in Anchorage,AK and Grande Prairie, Canada sell diesel.

RE: Farewell to Canada

Our reasons had nothing to do with Canada or Canadians. Age, health, distance all came in to play. It's a 5000 mile round trip, I will be 78 in two months, British Bride just turned 73 and has some health issues. Out two little Bichon Frise Bear Killers are both 17 with health issues. Just not up to the trip. My 93-year old mom was in a nursing home and the possibility of having to return home has been very real for a few years. She passed away peacefully in July. British Bride will not fly, so that is not an option. Both of us feel that it was our God telling us not to make the trip. On a more recent shorter trip, wound up taking my British Bride to an Urgent Care clinic in Denver with viral Bronchitis, then cutting the trip short and returning GM GM That is a situation that all of us will be facing..staying healthy enough to travel...Best wishes..c.traveler2

RE: Where did Mooney go?

There's quite a number, there's one called "Truck Camping" where alot of the RV.net truck camper folks have migrated to. Actually, we've migrated to the group "Truck Campers" though a lot are members of both Truck Campers and Truck Camping Like many of the TC members I'm not on this forum as much as I use to be, kohldad are you using the same user name on the Facebook sites?
