RE: I-94 through Chicago

We live south of Atlanta and hate taking I-75 through Atlanta but we know it is doable early Saturday or Sunday morning. My question is can you get through Chicago on I-94 early Saturday or Sunday morning. By early I mean around 8-9 AM. A friend said to take I-294 but also said that could be a pain if you do not have an I-pass or equivalent. We will be pulling a 31ft TT. Thanks for any advice. Early Sat or Sun morning? No worries. Unless it's raining or snowing. I used to make that run from Valdosta to Milwaukee - avoided I294

Yep - you read it right. The 'tooth is closed south of Red Lodge due to blowing and drifting snow. I for one am not going to miss snow. www.snowbrains.com/beartooth-highway-closed-winter-snow/

RE: Salt Lake to Elkhart, IA Travel Advice

My wife and I will be taking our 44’ 5th wheel from Salt Lake City to Elkhart, IND in late October for a suspension upgrade at the Morryde facility. We are going to allow ourselves 4 days to get there traveling I-80. Our plan is to boondock along the way with Cheyenne, Omaha, Davenport as our tentative stopping points before reaching Elkhart. Having never driven east on 80 past Lincoln, NE, I am seeking advice on do’s & don’ts along the route into Elkhart. The part that worries me most is around the Chicago area. Any helpful tips or safe places to stay along the route are appreciated! I just did this yesterday (part of it) to deliver my truck/trailer to new owners in Davenport, IA. I continued on I80 with a rental car straight thru and overnighted in Ottawa at Starved Rock SP. Since you won't be going thru or anywhere near Chicago - that's not an issue. Tomorrow we'll be in Middlebury and next week in Atlanta for the flight to Panama.

RE: loosing old members

loosing old members here ???? seem a lot are gone / going any particular reason personally I post way less because of less knowledge on newer campers AND because of sites horrible photo posting process ! whats your opinion /reasons for less participation ??? It's because we older drivers have been ursurped by younger owner/drivers with little or no experience, but who read an article somewhere on the "net" that now makes them the authority. I have been ambushed several times and why you don't see me posting as often. I've got five million accident free miles as of last month. I used to spend many years pulling cars, pickups, big trucks and a few rv's from ditches and hung up on guardrails. I know what I'm talking about but recently I was pm'ed and told not to post this because I was out of touch. Just recently my youngest decided rv'ing was not for her anymore and bought an old boat. Well she has lived in So America for 30 yrs. She knows the territory and lack of roads quite well. There's more water than roads. For her it was a wise decision. It made sense. Announcing here on the forums - you'd have thought she was a traitor. It was just her way of saying goodbye. Well for me, I sold my sig rig yesterday and I'll be returning to my sailboat in Panama. So Robert Ryan you may be seeing this old cowboy down under sometime in the future. But for now, goodbye and good luck.

RE: I didn't buy an RV

He managed to extricate himself from the wreckage which is probably when he twisted his back. And walk back UP Mulholland to his house. It was only then that his wife called for help.

RE: I didn't buy an RV

Been there done that with the boat thing. Got tired of burning 25 gal a hour of fuel. Well, that happens in speedboats. My Skookum burns 1 gal/hr at 6.5kts

RE: I didn't buy an RV

An RV is easier to handle than a boat.......just don't understand this post. All that rocking back and forth if the waters are rough. Once the RV is parked, it's stable. RV's - good ones don't rock - but in strong Chinook winds just about everything moves around. If you have a "steel" body construction vehicle like a Bluebird - now that's a stable platform. It hardly moves at all. Boats - I have a 53ft Skookum in Panama - it loves high winds and I don't get sea sick as I would on slow moving trawler or tug. I sailed it from Seattle to Panama by myself and learned along the way. Self taught sailor, I now have an ASA cert - I didn't start out with. Just kinda winged it. GR421 - you'll be happy with your solid purchase. I know I am - after 66 yrs of living on land, I'm heading back to Panama in my hurricane hole. Maybe we will cross paths sometime at Allbrook.

RE: Casper Wy to Cody Wy via US 20

I went thru there last week at 13.6 dead center following a gypsum belly dumper and a Wilson cattle truck behind me. I don't see what the problem is. If you're scared take another route. But this is fastest and flattest way to Cody.

RE: Going to the Sun Road

I have driven that road three times this year, but not after a snow or rainstorm. As a comparison the Wind River canyon is far more dangerous than the Glacier roads/ I was pulling a double thru the canyon when a giant boulder landed squarely on a car - flattening it. Four died. Took several days, three wreckers, a rotator and a helo to move the boulder. I was stuck there for two days.

Going to the Sun Road

The Going to the Sun road in Glacier NP was closed for a few hours on Monday to clean up a boulder slide at the East Tunnel. The resulting slide struck a vehicle killing a 14 year old girl and injuring four family members. The boulders some the size of basketballs fell a considerable distance. The road is open, but caution must taken when traversing that area - esp after rain/snow storms. https://dailyinterlake.com/breaking_news/20190813/girl_killed_by_falling_rocks_in_glacier_park

RE: Diesel fuel stop on I25 between Cheyenne Wy. Casper Wy.

HiAll, need a fuel stop with access for 30 foot 5th wheel trailer. Thanks 2007Jim. Why - it's only 180 miles? What kind of mileage are you getting? Fuel at FJ in Cheyenne and if needed top it off in Casper

RE: I10 Fl. to Ca.

It is a matter of luck. North Texas and NM can have some cold weather and snow in December. Timing is everything on a trip like that. Watch the weather and be ready to layover for a day or two if necessary. I-10 doesn't go that way. You're referring to I-40
