RE: trailer shade

I use an Easy-Up. It is portable and can be moved where you need it. It helps a lot to have some side curtains for afternoon sun. I use old canvas tipi liners.

RE: New - Buying a Tralier - No Clue What I'm Doing

If you are in Los Angeles go look at some RVs. Dealerships, shows, and the like. Get an idea what is out there. Then get a real tow vehicle and buy used. Don't go too big.

Stay with the factory spec and you won't break anything.

RE: Older Dog and Night time

Dogs defintely shows the signs of aging mentally. They can get disoriented at night, especially if they do not see very well. Don't be surprised by it. I took my last Border Collie backpacking when she was 16. She had some aging issues for sure.

RE: FL Keys in June

I drove to Key West once in August. The coolest temp in a week was 78 at o500. I really enjoyed my time there because it was quiet. The conchs were around and people from the South. Few tourists from New York. I remember watching the tarpon on the incoming tide flashing and being lit up from the lightning. I stayed in an old motel made out of cypress. It was like being in an old movie.

RE: Setting up wdh hitch

Have someone check you setup. If you still have sway, add a sway control bar. It is relatively easy to install and costs around $60.

RE: Dang Squirrels

We had a wet spring this year and have an explosiono of ground squirrels in the yard. They are notorious for getting into houses, so I decided to control them. There is a trap called a 'squirrelanator" that resets itself and really works. I live trap the little buggers and take them out on public land and turn them loose. The first set captured 4.

RE: The Wide Open West - an Example

In the West there used to a lot of small gas stations and motels in remote areas out by themselves. People did not travel as far in a day with the older cars and more primitive roads. Many of those old buildings are still standing but long closed. It is counter intuitive but there are lots of places like Nevada,eastern OR, NE CA, Utah, etc where the facilities are actually further apart today than they used to be. I cannot imagine having a vehicle with a range of 175 miles. A Ford diesel has a stock 35 gallon tank. Running empty the range is well over 700 miles. Pulling a TT I can still go about 450 miles.

RE: Mosquitos

You can't control them. A smoky fire helps. The only solution for serious mosquitoes is a head net, long sleeves, long pants, and DEET on everything.

RE: Planning Sept trip to Yellowstone/Glacier NP

The elk rut starts around Sept 19. The best time to be there. Sure it might snow any night. The weather slows down the visitation. Glacier is much better after Labor Day. The routes are no problem. Next time I go to Glacier it will be the east side of the park.

RE: Solo Women Travellers

I like the idea of niche marketing, something for everyone. The concept that few people will use the capability, but they are happy to have it just in case is how we explain the demise of cars. Everyone seems to want to appear to be outdoorsy and own a "rugged vehicle" even if they never leave the pavement. Sometimes I think that the US is becoming the land of illusion.

RE: AZ to NV, UT, ID, WY, CO and NM

I like your route. I disagree about KOAs and parking lot type RV parks. If it were me I would spend a couple of nights in USFS campgrounds in the woods along the way or boondock in a National Forest.

RE: yakima to emumclaw Washington

Snoqaulmie is built to interstate standards. It is fast and easy. My grandfather talked about driving the old road when it was dirt in Model A and there were 34 stream crossings. It is only a little over 3,000 feet. Chinook and White Passes are why we take the lesser traveled roads in the West. Sure it is slower but a wonderful road to experience.

RE: Slide vs no slide

I just sold a hybrid trailer with no slide. The hallway was narrow, cramped even for 2 people. With 3 dogs it did not work well. Now I have a Rockwood with one really deep slide. It makes all the difference. The middle of the trailer is open with lots of floor space. It makes a 24 foot trailer totally livable. Slides add some weight like 400 pounds or so but they make smaller trailers much more livable. Just make sure you have a way to charge your batteries so you can always get it closed.

RE: The Wide Open West - an Example

Thanks Traver8. I used to work for a lot of mines all over the US doing consulting work. There are state highways in Nevada that are still dirt. Some mine sites are well in excess of 50 miles off the pavement. Top half of the tank is right.
