RE: Best Route Gallup to Monument Valley?

None of the roads in the area are difficult. Take your choice.

RE: What truck do I need to pull this trailer

That is a lot of trailer to haul around on a long trip and try to fit in dated camp sites. You will need a modern diesel made since around 2010. Some people prefer gas engines for reasons I will never understand. If you go some what lighter, then you would have more choices. I just looked up used diesel trucks. It is becoming more and more difficult to find a decent used one under about $45k that does not have high mileage.

RE: Oil change question

Synthetic oil does not wear out. You have few miles on it. It can go a couple of years with little mileage and still protect your engine.

Contact NPS and ask them. Opening dates can be changed at any time.

RE: Needs some work, a project camper

Can't pull up the photos. Old campers are worth very little if they have water damage and rot. There is nowhere to attach the jacks. They leak and they fall apart. $250 is close to the right answer. I have never thought of working with the old sheet metal and whimpy framing, black mold, and rotten wood and insulation to be rewarding at all.

RE: Elko Nevada to Cedar City Utah-Help!

Take the back way. Nothing to it. Just keep fuel in your tank and carry water. There is nothing out there, which is why I like it so much.

RE: Steamed Clams, Pacific NW - Washington

Anthony's in several locations near you. Ray's Boat House. I used to live on the east side of Camano Island. We practically lived on clams, raw milk, and strawberries in the summer.

RE: Need advise on which new truck - 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton?

If there is any doubt always step up instead of down.

RE: Newbie with a Dutch Oven

"The chart" is an example of why some people collect iron cooking implements but never use them. I know lots of people in that category. They look at things like this and get intimidated. I know a guy that has table, a free standing fire place and 5 DOs. He has never used them even once. If you start with a stew or roast and "use some wood coals" on it you can't go wrong.

RE: Looking for next travel trailer

The Rockwood mini 2504S is the trailer I have been looking for. It does everything well. It is beautiful. This year I have been mostly sleeping in it in the backyard. I paid 13,500 for a 2013 model.

RE: Recent wonderful trip

Right about now, any trip in the outdoors is a big deal.

RE: Surrounded By Sheep!

Excellent. Welcome to the West. You were almost in Nevada. I spent 35 years driving rural roads for a living as a consultant. Running into large herds of cattle and sheep is totally common. When I was working alone I would often stop in and visit with sheep herders. They used to be Basque, but now are mostly from S America, especially Peru and Bolivia. Their Spanish is easier to understand than Mexican Spanish. Sometimes I have met guys from China and could never communicate with them at all. When I lived in Wyoming and drove a road like from Laramie to Casper there might be 10 cars or less the whole way. The only thing that would make me late to a meeting would be livestock on the road.

RE: 2020 Chevy 3500 DRW first impressions towing

What matters is what you think of your truck. 2002 Ford 7.3 still makes me happy every time it fires up.

RE: Looking for next travel trailer

If you expand your allowable weight to around 4800 pounds then finding all of those things is relatively easy. I like the Rockwood Ultra Lite.

RE: Newbie with a Dutch Oven

If you are starting out stay with one pot meals with fat in them. You need to get over your reluctance to cook in iron pots and build your confidence. Making bread, biscuits or other baking requires much more finesse. Set yourself up for success.

RE: Foam Mattress Topper

Like a lot of things, mattress toppers are only opposed as a bad idea by people that have never used a good one. Mine is on a Murphy bed, so it can move around a little Big deal. It is exceedingly comfortable.

RE: Camping in cold temps, bad idea?

There are many rewards in camping in colder weather. The crowds are small, the wildlife is busy, a fire feels good and provides a place for cooking with a Dutch Oven. It extends your season. There are plenty of places I really enjoy going once it is below freezing at night. They would make no sense in the summer. What ever extra precautions the colder weather requires are amply rewarded.

RE: Foam Mattress Topper

Standard RV mattresses are not very good and lumpy. I added a dense 2 inch foam mattress topper. It may have gel in it. It changed everything. I slept in the trailer last night because it is really comfortable.

RE: Newbie with a Dutch Oven

Chili has no beans. If you put beans in it then it is something else. According the International Chili Society.

RE: Newbie with a Dutch Oven

Any stew Chili Spaghetti Try biscuits later once you understand heat better. Most people use too much heat at first.
