RE: I-65 Alabama

Just today we towed our 5th wheel on I-65,although we went north to south to Montgomery, and it was ok EXCEPT in Birmingham. It was horrible there. JK

RE: Big Bend NP

What are the best RV parks in the Big Bend NP area. We were at Big Bend last year and stayed at the Maverick Ranch Rv Park. You say 'Rv Park' so apparently that's what you want. I've read that Maverick Ranch is the best in the area and it's ok, having things you might want in such a very remote area like a restaurant and small store. We will be there again in a month, but they do fill up in the winter. Good luck! JK

RE: What is the most efficient way to bypass Chicago?

Where did you see an $89 one way rate for seniors? The rates I posted came off their site for 2021 I see it's $67 for the slower Badger Ferry,which has 2021 pricing. $89 is for Lake Express seniors. The Lake Express website still shows the 2020 prices. This is copied off their rate page: EASY ON, EASY OFF VEHICLE DECK Passengers on the Lake Express have the option of traveling with or without their vehicles. For those wishing to bring a vehicle, the auto deck offers the flexibility to accommodate vehicles and trailers up to 8? 6? in height, 8? in width and 18? in length. Please note, vehicle prices do not include the driver or any additional passengers.

RE: What is the most efficient way to bypass Chicago?

Here are the rates, it's certainly less expensive to drive around, especially if you're towing Fares listed do not include $6.50 security fee, each way. Security fees do not apply to any children's fares. ... Our 2021 Season is May 20th - October 10th, we look forward to seeing you soon! One Way Round Trip Adults $72 $131 Seniors (65+) $67 $124 Child (5-15) $27 $44 Children under 5 FREE FREE How much is the Muskegon ferry? Easy On, Easy Off Vehicle Deck Passengers One-way Roundtrip Auto 107.00 202.00 Auto with Trailer (up to 10ft long) 221.00 424.00 Auto with Trailer (More than 10ft long) Call for Rates B FYI, the Milwaukee/Muskegon ferry auto rate does not include the humans. Senior rate is $89 ea. So 1 car($107) + 2 seniors = $285 one way. Plus whatever extraneous fees they add on. But it's fun!

RE: What is the most efficient way to bypass Chicago?

I'm in Milwaukee and Chicago traffic is often an obstacle. Plan A- Leave early on a weekend only, hitting Chicago about 6a.m. There's traffic, but not too bad. Plan B- I-43 out of Milwaukee to I-39 south. Plan C- Lake Express ferry from Milwaukee to Muskegon. Expensive, but sometimes they have good deals on round trips. There's also the slower but cheaper Badger ferry out of Manitowoc, WI. We've done the Milwaukee ferry twice, car only. JK

RE: Outside Speakers

I installed some Polk marine speakers, along with base pods that angle them downward somewhat. Much better than original though need more bottom end. Waiting for an excuse to replace the head unit. Note: I am very discreet with outside usage.

RE: Vaccinations

I think the problem is nobody is grabbing the bull by the horns. Citizens don't know who will notify them when it's their turn, or even IF they will get notified. We got our Shingles vaccine yesterday, and the pharmacist hadn't gotten her coronavirus vaccine yet and had no idea when she would. That seems to be the entire situation. JK

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

After reading a bunch of typical negative posts about this I figured most of you were wrong. But you're right. To me, this thing is geared mostly toward women with all the decorating and food stuff. I think my wife might like it but it's not for me for the most part. Too touchy-feely for me. I see some camper reviews toward the back that I will read, but otherwise, to me, it's a failure. JK PS... Trailer Life WAS my favorite magazine.

RE: Avoiding Low clearance routes

My biggest problem is with the GPS or my own brain fart, turning onto a residential street with trees. I once went into a gas station with a close overhead canopy. My truck reached the first pump without the trailer getting under it. While filling, I was eyeballing the clearance. This other guy goes "Awe, you'll clear it." No, I backed out. JK

RE: I-75 in GA - Accident Prone

Just over a year ago, our 1st time in Georgia, we were going south on I-75 about halfway between the northern border and Dalton. We were just passing a weigh station, driving in the center lane when all of a sudden maybe 100 feet ahead a small SUV ricocheted off the center wall, hit the strip of grass between the freeway and the weigh station's entrance ramp, rolled over at least once, dirt flying everywhere, and then landed on its wheels. It was all finished as we passed by. No idea what caused it. I looked in my mirror and saw cars pulling over to assist (maybe one of them was involved). I bought a dashcam after that trip. JK

RE: Remembrances of vacuum tube days

I sure don't miss the electrical shock you can get from those tubes if you didn't ground them (yes, with the TV unplugged). I got it several times. JK

RE: Vaccine being ships first shots within 24 hours

FWIW, I happened to see my cardiologist 2 days ago and I asked him. He figures they won't get to me until April. I'm 65 with heart disease. JK

RE: Great time to Sell Your RV!

What about the ones that owe way more than they'll get for it?

RE: Dump Station Observations

don't put your trash bags in the first trash receptacle you find in the nearest town. As for trash, I seem to always be able to find something. The standard trash cans at gas stations will hold a 13 gallon trash bag, provided they're not already full and you can pull the top off. Also, I've never been arrested for using the McDonald's trash bins in Quartzsite. There's a free public refuse transfer station just north of Q that's open most days. JK

RE: Hitch reccomendations

Well, the 2 most common autoslides are the Pullrite and the Demco. I have the Demco 18k and have had no issues. My trailer is about 11.5k- 12k loaded and have over 30k miles of towing on this hitch in 3.5 years. I just replaced the pivot pin for the jaws because it had a little wear spot on it. That's it. JK
