RE: Help planning a Washington State/Oregon trip

We stayed at an Inn called Alexanders while spending 3 days at Mt Rainier in July of 1996. Stayed at the Edgewater in Seattle.

RE: Heading to the Rockies for 5 or 6 weeks.

"I don't know how anyone could tell that I was not using tow/haul by what I wrote." No offense intended but this is what you wrote, sounded like you weren't using Tow Haul: "On the downhill runs however, the engine is still a 3.5 liter gasser when it comes to motor braking. I have to use my brakes more than I would like on the long high speed drops. Today I came down what is probably my steepest, curviest downhill in my driving experience. This road was handled well by the EB because the speed limit was 25 and I could use first gear and had very good speed control with engine braking." If you are in TH you should not have to use your brakes much at all. A light tap of the brake pedal will downshift the trans one gear, no need to manually shift down unless that's what you like to do though it does seem a tad redundant. On a long 5 or 6 percent grade I select a speed that is appropriate for the road conditions and set cruise control while in Tow Haul. This usually gets me to the bottom of the grade without ever touching the brakes or at most doing so lightly and not often. As always... Opinions and YMMV. :C I believe the OP's point was that a 3.5L V6 doesn't have the same engine braking capability as a 5 or 6 liter engine. The turbo is great for going up, but doesn't help you going down.

RE: Full timers warning

Don't believe that story for a second. The IRS doesn't make phone calls asking for information.

RE: Who has switched from a '16+ max tow F150 to a '16+ HD F150?

I would keep the F250 and be done with it.

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

I now live in a condo with a parking garage for all. Would require a majority of the homeowenrs to approve the wiring install. Ain't happening in my lifetime. I work for the State of Arizona and wiring at work ain't happening either.

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

I, along with tens of millions of others are not in a similar situation. So no all of your insight's and photos don't help a bit. I guess you missed my point. BTW, if I could wire for an EV I probably would. I like the technology.

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

Charging for apartments, condos and street parking are the biggest obtacles. Also charging for multiple cars in the driveway. For those of you that think this roadblock will be solved quickly are living in a dream world. Another factor is cost. With the average age of a car on the road being eleven years old, that tells me that there are tens of millions of people that will never be able to spend more than 10K on an auto. Not sure what you can get for 5-10K price range with an EV.

RE: Drive trime needed from bryce to moab

Sounds like you don't want to take the most beautiful drive in the country, RT 12. If that is the case at least take 24 through Capitol Reef. You don't even have to stop to take in the beauty.

RE: Need Help on how to get health insurance while traveling

Or another way to put it is that insurance was required, and if you didn't comply, you incurred a financial consequence if you got caught. Compare it with auto liability insurance--if you don't have it, you incur a financial consequence if you get caught. But you never hear people talking about how those without auto liability insurance are merely exercising their choice not to have it, and instead choosing to suffer a consequence. And sure, you have to wait until open enrollment to get insurance once you're sick, but the ACA's disincentive to do so is no longer applicable, so those who want to gamble and wait until they're sick are better off than they were before. Driving without liability insurance is against the law in most states. Declining health insurance is not against the law in any state that I'm aware of. The ACA enrollment numbers didn't change much when the penaly went away. There are more people working now than ever before, this has probably has had more of an effect on enrollment than the removal of the penalty.

RE: Need Help on how to get health insurance while traveling

You wait until you are sick, then go get insurance. Actually, it's the current administration that opened the door to this practice by no longer requiring everyone to have health insurance. Only now are they free to wait until they're sick to get health insurance, without any consequences. The rules on getting insurance through ACA have not changed one bit. You can only sign up during open enrollment or if you lose your current insurance. Not sure where you are getting your fake news from. Insurance was never required either. It was your choice to get insurance or pay an extra tax. The current administration just set the tax to zero. It was always so low it didn't make a difference anyways.

RE: Tioga Pass - This little baby can...

Tioga Pass isn’t that challenging IMO. Conway is just long. Sorry, I disagree. X2

RE: Clingmans Dome and Cades Cove Smoky Mountains

The road to the dome is skinny. Be extra careful if you go. The views are great up there.

RE: Redwood National Park question

We stayed at the KOA, Elk Country and Ancient Redwoods. KOA is failrly wooded with some giant stumps, Elk were present at Elk Country and Ancient Redwoods was surrounded by woods. We spent 11 days exploring the Redwoods in 2016. Probably our favorite forests were around Ancient Redwoods.

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

Before EV goes mainstream a charging solution needs to be in place for the tens of miliions of people that don't have driveways.

RE: Towing on Colorado hwy 149

Steep, curvy and slow from Lake City to the pass. I wouldn't tow it going the other direction, but some do. Beautiful area.

RE: Arizona winter stay campgrounds

There are no RV parks in Tempe or Scottsdale that I have ever heard of. Try Mesa.

RE: Need Help on how to get health insurance while traveling

Rice, Used to be covered in an emergency. Starting in 01/17 BCBS ACA HMO plans only cover when you are in the emergency room. Get admiited to the hospital upstairs and your coverage ends. That is what happened in AZ anyways, CT was probably the same. I was on ACA plans from 2014-2018. Started with great PPO plans and they went away in 2016. Prices tripled in those 5 years and I ended up going back to work just to get off the crazy train.

RE: Red Bluff to Ancient Redwoods RV park in Recrest

We loved staying there in 2016, but cell service was limited to standing in one spot by the sign that said stand here for cell service. Not joking. Maybe it has expanded by now. Very well kept camground.

RE: Best Route To Santa Fe NM from Michigan

We have taken both I70 and I40 as well. The last time we took (reverse order) 285 north from Santa Fe to Alamosa, CO to see the great sand dunes. 160 east to 10 and then north on 71 to I70. LaVeta pass is quite easy and the whole route from Santa Fe to Walsenburg is very scenic.
