RE: Sleepy Hollow, NY parkways?

From the south I recommend I87 N (NYS Thruway) to NY 9A. The northern route from 95 North to I 287 E, the Cuomo bridge, fka the Tappan Zee and access CP Park from NY rt9. (I think this is the route I would take.) For a bit more adventure find your way to the Bear Mtn Bridge near West Point Military Academy. Be advised NY rt202 is a challenge w a trailer; tight switch backs but 2 full lanes everywhere. Southbound is uphill.

RE: Oregon to charge 25% more for out of state RV campers

Those of you who like paying high prices for campgrounds I thank you as a 100% Disabled vet. Your dollars at work for my R&R. Cheers You're welcome and so are others that deserve to be compensated for sacrifices made on behalf of the US. (At least you realize you're being subsidized unlike others in this thread that get angry when the party is over.)

RE: Oregon to charge 25% more for out of state RV campers

A sure way to attract tourism dollars is to tax the tourists heavy, NOT. Actually prob the opposite will happen with the cheapskates moving on leaving room for those willing to spend more $$$/capita than those w butthurt over paying an out of state rate. Besides the tax funds the one of the most necessary parts of camping, the campground (and the OR rest stops.)

RE: Coffee Survey

I've yet to roast anything finer than high elevation finca arabica from Chiapas, Mexico. My roaster is an eight-foot tall adobe oven fired with guisache firewood, which imparts an extremely subtle smokiness to the beans. I am only permitted to buy coastales (gunnysacks) of green beans from this finca because I saved their butt by repairing an old Pacific Fruit Express Detroit diesel generator several decades ago, then set them up with a low RPM diesel in 2002. When curing roasted beans, the atmosphere cannot be too humid nor too dry. And every damned bean has to revolve top to bottom. I cured that by making double screened driers to let the air pass beneath the beans. I give away small sacks of finished beans to poor families. They brew it by rolling the beans on a molcajete. Then inserting the grind into a NYLON STOCKING and into near boiling water. Pedestrian Mexican Combate and San Marino ground coffee in a can would never pass muster in the USA. Very cool stuff. Reads like you have a very interesting life, oh your coffee sounds good too!

RE: Coffee Survey

Indian Monsooned Malabar is a taste you have to try. Needs to be roasted just into 2nd crack,and then rested three days to bring out the nuances. Source for Indian coffee pls?

RE: Class A Low Bridge Accident

I remember seeing this bridge or another like it om 60 minutes. I worked in a building that had a second story above a road way. They placed hanging chains before you could enter it to rake the top of the vehicle as it passed. We still had a coke truck ignore the warning and hit it. We with the gee wizz electronic stuff today you would think the could rig a height device wired to a stop light that would detect a over height vehicle and trigger the stop light before the bridge. Would not turn green until you backed up and turned around. Over height detectors have been in use for many years. They are sometimes ineffective because of a driver's/passenger's tunnel vision.

RE: Oregon to charge 25% more for out of state RV campers

When demand exceeds supply it's only natural for prices to rise.

RE: Will Fed shutdown bar access to Nat Forests? Nat Parks?

snip..... it is the usual "funding It would be difficult to shift blame in that case. Your statement is just another one of McConnell's many double standards w no basis in reality. It's going to take 10 GOP senators to raise the debt ceiling - neither party can wash their hands of it should the .gov shutdown or default.

RE: Route advice

Leaving on Sunday morning the GWB will be fine, (hopefully it's a 4pm game.) iirc the toll is westbound on the Verrazano. Arrivals at the game are spread out, it's the end of the 3rd qtr when the Jets fans have had enough so they will leave en masse.

RE: Route advice

The day of the week and time of day is important. Inbound to Manhasset you want to be crossing the Throgs Neck NLT 2pm on a weekday. Weekend mornings especially Sunday are the best of the daylight hours to travel on LI. Outbound to the George Washington Bridge is best before 2pm on weekdays. I think trucks/trailers are upper level only on the bridge. There is no toll on the GWB westbound. On Sundays one must be careful of the Jets/Giants game time if at home in the Meadowlands south of the GWB. That must be avoided completely. Have your EZ Pass loaded up w $$$. If it's raining go earlier. If you miss the the TNB continue on to the Whitestone Bridge which is a couple miles west of the TNB. DO NOT GET ON ANY HIGHWAY THAT IS NAMED A PARKWAY. They run parallel to both 95 and 495. Take your time, remain calm, and look over the map in detail beforehand.

RE: Oregon to charge 25% more for out of state RV campers

OSP are primarily funded by user fees and a small % of lottery revenue and there is no sales tax in OR. Users need to pay up to maintain and/or expand the system. It's ALWAYS easier to raise fees and taxes on non-residents, ie non-voters. Just like ID Dept Fish and Game, which does not get funding from the ID state general tax revenue which forces the IDFG to raise fees ($75 non-res tag for 1 sage grouse this year!!!!) and offer way more tags (deer) than the population can support to generate revenue to fund their operation. Last year the non-res elk tag which was ~$450 is right around $750 for 2021.

RE: Oregon to charge 25% more for out of state RV campers

Try buying a non-resident fishing or hunting license or tag if you want to know what real price discouragement for non-residents is. I find it funny that some take the higher non-res fees personally, yet at the same time demand more quality and new places to camp due to overcrowding.

RE: Hwy 93 from Missoula to Salmon, ID.

A good portion of it is right alongside the Salmon River so it is a little twisty-turny but very doable as long as you don't take the curves too fast. When we did it a few years back in our 40' Phaeton pulling a Jeep, we found it to be very enjoyable and scenic. We spent a couple of nights at the Canyon Pines RV Resort about 9 miles south of Riggins and stayed in site 31 which is a pull-through right on the river and found it to be delightful, however there was no cell service when we were there though there may be now. Riggins is on 95 no where near Salmon on 93, but they are both adjacent to the Salmon River.

RE: Wyoming Vacation June-July 2022

The last couple of years we've been amazed at the crowds in those shoulder months. "amazed" - meaning crowded or not crowded? Like new monthly visitation records September 2020 and again May 2021. :( That's what I figured. I'll be there mid-October myself.

RE: Wyoming Vacation June-July 2022

We've spent a fair amount of visiting Yellowstone, but mostly May/Sept/Oct. We usually stay at Rocky Mountain RV Park in Gardiner for access to the northern part of the Park, especially for wildlife in the Lamar Valley. And we like Grizzly RV in West Yellowstone for visiting the southern half of the park. Fishing Bridge is more central, but it is a HUGE park and exploring from any base means a lot of driving. The last couple of years we've been amazed at the crowds in those shoulder months. June to August will likely be very crowed, and traffic and parking will be an issue. Besides Yellowstone, we like Devil's Tower, the Tetons and Cody for the Buffalo Bill Center of the West museums. We always try to visit the Black hills in South Dakota while in that area. "amazed" - meaning crowded or not crowded?

RE: Class A Low Bridge Accident

I've seen this type of accident many times w OTR and MD trucks. Professional drivers make this mistake every day. It's usually due to unfamiliarity w the area, stress, and using a regular GPS/Waze/ggl maps instead of a dedicated truck/RV GPS. Prob time for the MH driver and wife to get off the road though or stick to MT where everything is bigger. Btwn the 2 of them they have been able to not wreck.
