RE: Best route from Salem, Oregon to West Valley City, Utah?

Robin W, I admire your wishes for adventure----However, in my opinion, leave the trailer for better weather. I've been over all the routes mentioned on here, and for a beginner, none of them are probably safe for a first timer in winter. Now, I'm surmising that with a handle of Robin, you might be female---DO NOT let that stop you from becoming an avid RVer!! My bride of over 5 decades is very capable of getting out there and going down the road. We've met over thirty ladies driving class A's to class B vans, so as the gut in the movie said, "YOU CAN DOO IT!"

RE: best route, West to East?

Old OTR driver here. Also very familiar with Placerville and the sierras. Head East over 50, then up to I-80 would be my sugestion. I-80 is a pretty good choice overall for East/West travel. Salt Lake City is a bear for traffic, but we time it for early or late in the day. Now, for an ODD stop to streatch your legs-stop at Dix NB-Exit 29 on I-80 and walk to the active missle silo on the South side of the exit. Yep, I've stopped there twice to realize how small my problems are. Don't touch the fence or do anything stupid cause you're on camera, but what you see there is the reason the U.S. is a world power. Don't forget the original Cabela's in Sidney NB. They have RV parking. Safe travels-----------------

RE: You tube Fulltimers getting squeezed

Well, I have to confess that I've seen all I can see of Naked & Afraid, Swamp People, and The View-----So, I went to the dark side and started watching RV videos. Understandably, my views might be different, but at least I enjoy the travel videos. Now, I think a new segment is coming on about a lady that explores hot springs in California. See ya out there....................

RE: Adding fan behind refrigerator...worthwhile??

I glued two 120mm fans to the inside of the black plastic refer grill. They are at an angle so the fans blow upward. I placed a small switch on the outside of the grill to turn the fans off/on. I have noticed an improvement in the refer temps. I had one fan, the switch, and had to buy one fan for $13.00. The best part of this story is that I did not have to go to ER while doing this mod!!

RE: What are these

Thanks. I watched the video and that's the place. Missile history in the western central portion of our United States is quite prevalent. I know there are several silos in the area--in fact, if one goes to Google Earth. Dix, NE. there is a live silo just about 100 yards from exit 29 off I-80. I've visited it twice. Humbling to be near such a potential for destruction. God bless the peacekeepers.

What are these

While searching Google Earth for missile silos, I found what appears to be bunkers, North of Sidney NE. They are about 6 miles from Sidney, and just west of Hwy 385. There also seems to be windmill arms and a pretty good sized junk yard, or as some would say, "a place to store collectables." Any ideas as to the reason for these bunkers? Just curious.
