RE: What do you guys use for a BBQ?

With limited space I use a Coleman, one burner with a griddle. It fits perfectly in my rear compartment.

RE: Best route to the Grand Tetons

I all ways go to Rock Springs to Pinedale to Jackson. The road is good all of the way, gentle hills and sweeping curves. There is on pass north of Pinedale but there is a passing lane. All of these roads have been paved in the last few years.

RE: STL > SD > WY Route

I'll tell you from STL to Sioux Falls is a heck of a trip for your first day. Just north of the SD line is a great roadside rest, it's about an hour or so south of S.F. Gives you a chance to boondock one night. If would decide to stop there, here's secret, drive through the rest area there's road the leads to a small lake. You can park down there, it's quite and no one will bother you. If you don't like it then you can drive on. I also stop at one of the truck stops at Nebraska City. This is just in case you get tired.

RE: Torklift Rust

My TL tie downs are 14 years old and never have been off the truck since they were installed. Except for when I had them sprayed with bed liner. I would not hesitate to buy them. They are made from heavy stock and would take a lot of rust to make them useless.

RE: Removing Contact Overloads

I have used SuperSprings from the get go, I have never touched them since I installed them and that was 14 years ago. Just sayin

RE: Brands That Can Be Used Off The Truck

It’s true that most newer campers can be used off truck, but there have been some holding tank straps that failed for many brands in the past. I think it would be better to ask the manufacturer once you get close, or do a search once you get a used one/new one in mind to find out. That's a curious statement that I never heard. Can you expound on it?

RE: Wilderness camping and gun safety

I was a state certified firearms instructor for about 25 years and taught both LEO's and civilians. Many with the same question you have. Muscle memory is what one safe when handling a fire no matter whether it's a pistol, revolver, shotgun or rifle. Each have their own characteristics. A loaded revolver is the easiest to handle and easy to conceal. A pistol is somewhat more complicated. Some have safety's others don't. You need to know how to clear a jam, and they do. How to load a "magazine" they are not "clips". You need to know how to break it down and clean it, a fouled pistol will malfunction. One of the reasons that a pistol will malfunction with an inexperienced shooter is a term "limp wristing" which means that the shooter did not have a tight grip on the weapon and did not allow the slide to do it's job. To get back to the OP's question. Unless one spends a considerable amount of time practicing loading, firing the pistol it's better to have a revolver, loaded. As was stated an unloaded firearm is about as useful as a boat anchor. A quality revolver will not discharge if dropped, has no safety that you have to learn to manipulate. For the most part they are less expensive than a pistol and as stated less maintenance is needed. There are other alternative to a hand gun that are easy to learn and maintain. In the last few years Remington and others have introduced a shotgun, which is classified as a "firearm" in both 20 and 12 gauge. The beauty of this is their 14in barrel and pistol grip stock. Loaded with "low recoil" ammunition the are easy to shoot. You can also get an "arm brace" for it to be used as a defacto stock. Then there are the AR style pistols. They are more complicated so I would stay away from them. As far as 12ga ammo everyone touts 00 buck when actually no. 4 buck is better it has a little less recoil which means a quicker followup shot. more pellets. Don't forget no matter which shotgun ammo you use the pattern will be very tight out to about 25yards. The alternative to lead ammo is rubber shot. It comes in both a slug or buck shot and that's what I carry. In my time in the back country with my TC I have had three black bear encounters. I did not fire a shot but the rubber shell would have sufficed. .

Does that mean all of those jocks will actually have to attend classes?

RE: Propane Generator to Gas.

If you want to change it why don't you just remove it. A gas 2KW genset will weigh a lot less, will be easier and less expensive to work on. The genset will fit in the compartment where the LP unit fits. You might be able to store one or two gas cans in the same area. You will have to put a floor in the compartment but that's no big deal. I help folks in removing two LP units and we used an aluminum stop sign for the floor. It can from the county maintenance barn that had bee shot full of holes.

RE: Yellowstone in October

Is YS having crowds right now? The few pics and video I see show it is empty compared to most years. Why not go now? I looked at the webcam's yesterday and the traffic in West was backup way into West. There was also a line in Gardener.

RE: Yellowstone in October

I had not considered that there would be no dump stations open. I'm thinking one of the RV parks outside of YS will be our best bet. I'd be REALLY bummed if they shut the park down completely before we got there. If that happened, we'd figure out something. I'm working, my wife works, and I'm in the Army National Guard and have drill weekends to contend with. There is zero chance of us going now. It's early October or not at all. There is a dump station in Livingston at a convenience store where you can also get water. I have used it several times in the past. The dump was $10.00 and they charged a min fee for water. Slough Creek usually stays open, so check on that I have stayed there many times in Oct. usually in the first two weeks of the month.

RE: Yellowstone in October

Do you have an idea why they close? SNOW!!!!!! There are several factors, snow, cold and the lack of volunteers. All of the water systems need to be drained and winterized. West Yellowstone sits at about 7K feet. Shops and restaurants close until the Park reopens for the snowmobiles.

RE: How do you folks plan travel for long distances?

Look at "Boondockerswelcome.com" There is a small membership fee but there are plenty of them. I utilize rest areas all of the time and I have never been rousted from one. I also use Walmart, Cableas, and other locations. Always ask and never turned down. Truck stops I don't use much any longer because they are crowded. In the west there are truck parks, no facilities but it's a place to stay.
