RE: Grand Canyon Trip

If you have the time available try to see both the north and south rims. They are totally different. You do not get the expansive vistas at the north rim but it is not as crowded either. We stayed at Jacobs lake for north rim because we could not get reservations in the park. There are also large buffalo herds on the way into the park. One of the most awesome views of the canyon is from the air. If time and money permit take one of the flights around the canyon. We chose the smaller single engine Cessna's for this.

RE: Reno Area RV Parks?

We also like Gold ranch. It is away from the hustle and bustle of the city in a more rural setting. Close to town. We also have used Grand Sierra resort. It was very nice as well. There are many thing to see in the area. The national automobile museum is interesting. Virginia city for an old west mining town. Touristy but fun and a number of historic sites to see. You can also take a train ride there. In Carson City there is the state capitol, The museum which is in the old mint building, and the state railroad museum. Lake Tahoe is an easy and scenic drive.

RE: Grand Canyon Trip

We stay in trailer village when we are there. We tried some of the camps outside the park. Trailer village is on the shuttle route and close to the shopping area. You can watch the sunset over the canyon and sunrise if you are so inclined. If you are tired just head back to camp for a nap and head out again. Just my opinion.

RE: California Coast Suggestions?

Roaring camp railroad is fun. Ride a steam train through the redwoods. It is just north of Santa Cruz.

RE: Las Vegas to South Lake Tahoe

95 to Shurz through Yerington to 395 to 50 to Tahoe 95 is a good road. Not exciting but an easy drive.

RE: If I won the mega-millions lottery I would...

Every time we go to visit our daughter we go through Coburg Or. Right by the Marathon plant. There are always a few high dollar MH's out front. I could live with it.

RE: Through Death Valley?

As a twenty year veteran of Caltrans in that area I don't recommend 190. Yes it is doable. It is a white knuckle drive. There have been vehicles go over the edge that were not found for years and I have seen MH's merrily burning along the route from overheating on the grades. I am sure some of the good folks here will disagree with me.

RE: A blast from the past

TV shows were so much better back in those days. I rarely turn it on now.

RE: A blast from the past

I was two in 1949. I don't remember it either. I do remember later on sitting on my grandfathers lap while the Lone Ranger was on. A fond memory.

RE: St Paddy's Day

If you catch one of those Leprechauns they are good on the BBQ. They are magically delicious.

RE: Neveda

I-80 is more of a put the hammer down and make miles. Elko for basque food and the ruby mountains. Hwy 50 is a much nicer drive. Billed as Americas loneliest hwy but that's mostly Chamber of commerce hype to get the tourists. There is Great Basin National park. Take the cave tour. It is outstanding. The Nevada Northern railroad in Ely. and several small mining towns. Fort Churchhill is just a few miles south of Silver Springs.

RE: Took the B-17 bomber flight!

My Dad did twenty eight missions as flight engineer/top turret gunner. He left a mission diary. on mission one he complained about a milk run. It was not to many missions later he was thankful for a milk run.

RE: Tahoe National Forest

Fireman, If you live in Fallon, next time you go to Reno for something make the drive to Truckee and check it out for yourself. There are also campgrounds along SR 89 north of Truckee along the river, at Donner Lake state park, Boca, Stampede, Prosser, and just over the summit at Cisco and Hampshire Rocks. There is even a very small campground at Tahoe City adjacent to the US Coast Guard facility. We probably should do that. It would make a nice outing. Wife just had surgery so it could be a few more weeks before she feels like a road trip.

Tahoe National Forest

Has any one stayed at Granite flat CG between Truckee and Lake Tahoe? We are curious if there was a dump station there and your overall thoughts on the Camp. Our son wants us to join him there this summer. I definitely can not stay there for two weeks without using my shower.
