RE: No Privacy Curtain w/Overhead Bed?

Just add one. I do not share my RV except in emergencies. I tell people the guest room is the pass through storage compartment under the bed.

RE: Have not Camped Mid Season For Awhile....

I like the shoulder seasons best and the desert in winter. Last week I went to a popular lake in the Sierras. School started early this year. In a large campground loop of 40 spaces, I was one of two rigs in the whole place. That was mid-week Tues-thurs. I saw more deer than people.

RE: Considering getting a truck camper

I started with a truck camper on my one ton Ford. I wanted to pull a boat and a horse trailer. My girl described the TC as too much trouble for a short trip and not enough room for a long trip.

RE: Considering getting a truck camper

I was just talking a couple yesterday in the mountains. They had a Toyota truck and just graduated from a pop up camper to a small travel trailer. They were absolutely in love with their trailer and all the room even in a single axle easy to pull TT./

RE: How well does the RAM 2500 6.4 Hemi tow?

When you consider their performance, longevity, and better mileage, diesels are cheaper to own. If you are gong to pull heavy trailers in the mountains stop messing around and buy a diesel.

RE: If I have to ask I probably shouldn't

For half the money you can buy a good Dutch oven that will do everything.

RE: Tips for Traveling with Other Couples

This is a big topic. If you have your own rigs you have a good chance. Have you been on over night trips with these people before? Have you camped with them? Have you been together for several days together? I have friends I see at a party or for an evening. I have friends I spend the day with. Friends I go camping with. Only certain friends are compatible for say a week long river trip or a long RV trip. People get exposed for who they are when they are tired, hungry or stressed. Go camping with these people before you sign up for a long trip. Make sure you have similar traveling styles. Good luck. Could be a great trip or a disaster.

RE: California hwy 120 between 395 & 6

Great route. Remote but not difficult. I travel it every couple of years. Keep an eye out for wild horses. Stop at the old sawmill and the hot springs.

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

Battery technology is improving rapidly. It is one of the things that will speed up the acceptance of EV. Lithium is the current wave with 300 mile ranges and 80% charge in less than an hour. There are electrical charging stations in our little town in Nevada.

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

Jay Leno knows a lot about cars. Predicting the future of fossil fuels is not easy. Its use for transportation is an entrenched technology. We need to give people compelling reasons to switch to something else. Oil is something we have been fighting over for decades. We spend a lot of money to protect our interests. We have a gigantic military compared to the rest of the world. We have been fighting in the Middle East for 19 years over oil. We are saber rattling with the Iranians in the Strait of Hormooz over oil. Diesel engines will probably be popular even when gas engines are not. We can run diesels on canola oil, algae, cooking oil, **** seed and a lot of other things.

RE: Smoking GFCI outlet

GFIs are very sensitive to vairations in amperage. When anything unusual happens they trip. Sometimes they trip for no reason at all. If one is buzzing and not tripping, replace it. Test the rest of the circuit.

RE: Rocky Mountains camping

I like the Never Summer Range, Mt Zirkel Wilderness, Flat Tops, Grand Mesa, the central part near the Maroon Bells and especially the San Juan Mtns and the Weminuche Wilderness Area.

RE: RV Ovens

I never cook with charcoal. It runs out and is bulky to carry around. I use wood. No counting and formulas.

RE: Rocky Mountains camping

Get a hold some USFS maps. There is one for each forest. Take a look at them. Stop in at a Ranger District office for some advice. Then you can see the Rockies without parking lots and lines of people.

RE: Rocky Mountains camping

After yo uget tired of the crowds, try a nearby National Forest and it will be much quieter.

RE: SoCal to North Central Washington: 395 or 95?

I drive from Reno to Seattle at least once a year. I like the east side. Take US 395 north. There are several routes you can take. I like to go through Lakeview, OR and then up through Paisley and Silver Lake. I often camp in the Fremont NF which is about half way before I get to Bend. Then take US 93 up the east side of the Cascades. I drop in to Seattle over Snoqualmie Pass. You can keep going up along the Columbia up to Mazama, WA.
