RE: Moorcroft, Wy to Buffalo, Wy

Thanks to all for the replies. Decided to take I 90 for this leg of the trip.

Moorcroft, Wy to Buffalo, Wy

Looking for an alternate route to I-90 from Moorcroft to Buffalo, WY. To those of you who are familiar with the area is RT14/16 okay while towing a 30' travel trailer? I took Rt 16 from Hermosa, S.D, to Moorcroft, Wy and that part was okay. Thanks

2004 Class A gasser

Hi all, Looking at two different 2004 class A's. One is a Pace Arrow with a Vortec GM 8 cylinder, the other a Georgie Boy with a 10 cylinder Ford. Would one chassis be better than another? I have heard good things mostly about the Ford, haven't seen much about the GM. Both are under 30k miles.

RE: I-90 West through Cleveland

. Just pay attention to the 45 MPH curve in the heart of the city. Will do, thanks

I-90 West through Cleveland

Hi all, Leaving soon and driving through Cleveland westbound on I-90. Any advice on avoiding the city and then continuing on I-90 to Elkhart, In? Will be towing a 30' travel trailer. Thank you

RE: Extended trip planning

It is a real shame that both Trips and Streets and Street Atlas died. There is no planning package that compares to these. If you run them on a laptop with a GPS dongle, there is everything important to you right at your finger tips. It was like having a big road map with a "You are Here!" arrow and two counters telling you how far to the next planned end of day or fuel stop. If you decided to change either, that change would ripple though the whole plan from there on. I really miss this. I am getting along with a 2015SA, but I am not sure how much longer. Matt My Streets & trips 2013 died with a 2011 laptop, a veteran of many thousands of miles getting banged about on the in truck table. Sure do miss that software. It is like having any map anytime, anywhere. No need to be connected like everything today. I am making do with google maps & the phone but don't like the situation at all. The phone is useless in many mountain areas & sometimes away from the interstates, the routes we like to take. With S&Ts if you could see the satellite you were in business.

RE: Decent Digital Camera

Thanks very much for all the helpful replies. I found a used Canon SX50HS in very good condition for 189.00 so better than I hoped for price wise.

Decent Digital Camera

Got a big trip coming up and want to take allot of photos. Looking for recommendations on a decent digital camera with telescopic lens that won't break the bank. Hoping I can find something for around $300.00 or less. I have a decent camera on my phone but the telephoto part isn't the best. Thanks for reading

Extended trip planning

Posted on another forum also want to get thoughts here. I planned a trip out to Yellowstone from New Hampshire and going to take about six weeks to get out and back. I felt that I needed to secure reservations for the entire trip because of the increased popularity of RVing and campgrounds being mostly if not totally filled most nights and especially on weekends in the more popular areas. This is so contrary to the way I used to travel pre pandemic when I wouldn't plan more than a couple of days out. One of the problems with this sort of travel is that if I find an area that I really like and want to spend an extra day or two I can't because of the ripple effects of all the reservations I have going forward. Even worse would be if I had a mechanical issue and got delayed a day or two then every reservation would need to be canceled or rescheduled and I'd probably be out of luck with some of them if not most. Wondering how others have handled this and curious how many of you have run into these sort of issues or have you not changed the way you do things since the pandemic hit? Love to get your thoughts. Thanks for reading.

RE: Yellowstone heading east

So 14 over to Greybull then 20/16 south to Worland and then East over to Buffalo? Do you know if I should carry extra fuel or will there be places to get gas?

RE: Eastbound I-90 Chicago

As someone who lives in Illinois, the stretch of road from the I-294/I-94 interchange to just past the I-94/I-80/I-65 interchange in Indiana is the worst fifteen miles of road in the United States.... It doesn't matter what day of the week, but if the sun's out, you'll be sitting in four+ lanes of solid traffic. Just pick a lane and stay there... The only way to avoid the volume is to drive thru that stretch at 2am when most of the trucks are asleep. That's doable for us living in the People's Republic of Illinois, but not for everyone. Taking I-90 all the way thru and across the Skyway is the only alternative, and that gets expensive. The road is also not in the greatest condition and you'd have to drive thru construction in downtown Chicago which is never fun at 50+ feet long. If you're coming from Rochester, consider dropping down on US-63 to Waterloo, IA and jumping on I-380 to 80. It's the same distance as taking I-90 to I-39 to I-80. I'm staying in Rochester for the night so coming down 63 sounds like a good option. Is that a 4 or 2 lane road? Thanks

RE: Eastbound I-90 Chicago

I never haul through Chicago only around it like this. I would take 39 at Rockford. It's roughly 50 mi longer but the only toll booth is where I-294 and I-80 join. Thank you

RE: Eastbound I-90 Chicago

39 to 80 and then east on 80 would be a much, much better choice than following 90 thru the city. 80 in Indiana can be congested so strongly recommend 80 in indiana between 10a-2p. there will be one toll booth in Illinois just before the IN state line but all toll booths in IL are not staffed so you won't need to stop but you will be expected to pay online. Thanks very much. Great info. Will make sure to go through at those times.

Eastbound I-90 Chicago

I'll be heading east on I-90 with my 30' travel trailer. I usually travel between 8:30 and three then look to get off the road for the night. Is there a better less congested way to get around Chicao? I was looking at I-39 south to I-80 and then head one way or another back to NH.To those of you familiar with the area what are my best options. Trying to schedule stops this week. I am stopping in Rochester, Mn so I could go down to I-80 from there I think. Thanks

RE: Yellowstone heading east

RE: Yellowstone with pets

Yes I can leave the dog in the RV he is a good boy that way and doesn't bark. I don't really like leaving him alone for more than 4 or 5 hours but we'll only be there 5 days. Thanks to all for the replies. I get it that some people are afraid of, allergic to and/or don't like dogs. I'm ok with that and keep him tight by my side if walking around others.

RE: Yellowstone with pets

Is there any chance you'd be comfortable dropping him off at a doggie day care so you can travel in the park without hindrance? If you post in the pet forum someone may be able to recommend a place. Yes that would be ok but I am staying at Fishing Bridge RV Park mainly because I don't want to have to enter and exit the park everyday.
