RE: RV Fuel Issues & Prices - Post 'Em Here!

Election day, 2020--Gas was $1.95 July, 16th, 2021-gas is $3.25 News stated the gas is the highest it's been in 7 years. Not claiming anything here, but-the same party was in office then as now.

RE: Highway speeds - Keep your distance!

I think California is teaching deer to read the "deer crossing" signs, so they know where to cross. I'm here all week....

RE: Truck - family of 5 and 65lb dog

Anyone remember when it was cool to ride in the pick up bed? Or put a large tarp in the bed and fill it with water? AHHHHHH, the good old days and the scars to prove it. I know, off topic.....

RE: Travel thoughts 2021

Grit Dog, you sly devil---commenting on the way governments work without being obvious about it. Good job. As far as my supporting Walmart, yes we do stop there. The lots are big enough to get the rig into, and we usually only purchase goods like meat, milk, veggies, and wine. Oh, and to check out the other customer fashions.

Travel thoughts 2021

We just returned from a 6900 mile trip from North Idaho to central Florida, via the Southern route going and a central U S return. A few comments about what we saw. The interstate highway system is horrible! Period. For the most part, fuel/gas stations are dumps. The islands are littered with full trash cans, dirt, no window washing supplies, and spilled products-the pump key pads are so worn that it's hard to read what to do. It also seems that the employees full in line with the condition of the business. The ONE real exception was the Iowa 80 station-it was about as clean as one could make it. Kudoos! Ironically, the highest gas prices were in Wyoming, right where the oil is pulled from the ground. I know, it has to be refined, but it is quizzical that right across the street from the station is an iron horse. The gift shops are stocked with stuff made in China, even the WWII museum in New Orleans. Come on guys-we can do better. The last three Walmarts we stopped at had no milk or cream products. Maybe the cows went to Tokyo to watch the Olympics? Now for the good stuff; WWII Museum is a treat for all. $17.00 an hour to park, but worth it! And the homeless camp under the freeway even had a picket fence and flower garden. It was super to be in lines again to see and do things-with other humans. Everyone was respectful in most cases. Charleston, the Blue Ridge Parkway, The Biltmore Mansion, The ARK, Corn Palace, and driving through three states full of corn were just the best. We are blessed to have such a wonderous country. We met up with about 100 people that made our trip even more enjoyable. On one occasion, a drunk guy kept wanting to give us hugs--God bless Montana. We're already thinking about another trip. This is a great country!

RE: I-95 rest area parking for RV

Being a retired LEO, the Deputy that stopped at the camper to ask questions is within his right to do so. I'm not certain if he/she had PC or was trying to fill his contact log. I do have personal feelings about asking about firearms being kept in a person's place of residence while on the road, but that's another topic. In all the years we've traveled, no one every enforced any "rules" in rest stops. I do believe folks should be more attentive in dumping their trash and stop peeing in rest stop parking lots.

RE: Living full time on my land in Plumas or Lassen County

HMMMMM...Homeless people are living all over Cali and not in RV parks. I'm thinking that a properly installed metal cover would be suffice to park a trailer under. Wait until you apply for a building permit---you might not be able to afford a home. Been there, applied for a permit, gasped at the cost, left the state, been happy ever since. Really happy. Good luck.

Interstate highway conditions

After traveling from North Idaho to Florida towing our trailer---I have to say the Interstate highway system is horrible! Dwight Eisenhower would be ashamed of the way our states and federal governments have allowed the roads to deteriorate. Possibly our politicians could pay more attention to the needs of our country then their private addenda's. O.K. I'm done with my rant. Now I'm heading out to put the cabinet contents back. See ya out there----

RE: Hwy 442 Gatlinburg

Thank you. When I saw the tunnels on GE, I wondered. Thanks again..

Hwy 442 Gatlinburg

Hwy 441 -- is it a RV friendly highway for a travel trailer? We're looking for a route from Ashville towards Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area. Hoping the weather calms down, my hair gets messed up in the wind! Thanks...

RE: Oklahoma Turnpike info

Well, I did some digging around----in 2012, Congress passed a bill to have all the toll roads accept one pass. This was to be implemented by 2016. This was extended 4 years. The various agencies involved apparently can't let go of the power they each have, so the "law" passed to bring all us commoners an easy way to travel has just been forgotten about. If a cell phone caller can find my phone anywhere in the U S from anywhere in the U S, it seems a transponder attached to a windshield shouldn't be a big deal. O.K. I'm done with my rant.

RE: Oklahoma Turnpike info

If I-35 is a toll in Kansas, do you have a name and does it accept EZ Pass?

Oklahoma Turnpike info

Is Highway 35 south of Oklahoma a turnpike? If so, what is the name? A route we're exploring is from Salina to Denton but things have changed in Oklahoma city since my last trip through the area. Thanks all....

RE: Rocket launch.

IF you can get onto the base, spend the money! We watched one of the night shuttle shots from the the causeway and what a thrill. We also were at the Space Park (with about 100,000 of our friends) to see Musk launch his Tesla and then see the two fuel cells land back on the Cape. These events make one feel pretty small. Also, if you can, check into a day on the Cape for tours and lunch with the moon rocket. It's been years, but I'm sure they still have attractions to see and do. We have family in central Florida that we visit (free food and sleeping) so we've been able to see about a dozen launches up close and from a few miles away. Enjoy!!

RE: Blue Ridge Parkway info??

Aw Shucks, thanks for the compliment. We don't mind parking the rig and just driving the truck to see the sights. From what I researched, there is so much to see and do that we wondered if a certain area might be better to find an RV park and do a "hub and spoke." Thanks all...

Blue Ridge Parkway info??

Hey, after searching the web (where all the sites want you to sign in or log on), I thought----why not ask fellow RVers? IF a fellow was thinking about the Blue Ridge Parkway--what, where, and how should an RVer plan this? Where to stay? Which end of the road has the most bang for the buck? I know there are a lot of you that have done this trip-can you help me out?? Thanks..

RE: RV Roof Tape

The salesman might not even own a RV, much less really know much about a product he sells. Tread with caution when dealing with sales people.

RE: Ideas to carry spare and bikes

IF I am reading this right---this rack is for the rear of a travel trailer? If so, would it cause a sway issue due to weight transfer from the hitch to the back. Not saying this was the cause, but the folks that crashed on the bridge in Idaho had some weight on the rear fold down bumper that might have contributed somewhat.
