RE: yellow stone np

I spent every summer as a child 60+ years ago in Yellowstone NP. My cousins worked in the park and I would stay with them as they worked. I recommend getting started early in the day to avoid the crowds. . . it seems that foreign tourists will occupy the RV parking spots without concern for the spots that they occupy. . . it can get competitive. Which entrance you use is not as important as where you visit. The Hayden Valley is a must. . . talk to the rangers and ask for their input. They've sent us to amazing uncrowded locations without tourists that we hiked into. They actually said to hike to remote thermal pools and said to walk to edge of the pools if there were bison tracks surrounding the pools.

RE: A poll: What does 2 blinks of the left signal mean to you?

My reading comprehension is excellent. Maybe better than yours, since you didn't answer my question of why I would need a signal to pass when I can clearly see around you and know it is clear to pass. A simple answer please with no insulting, and unnecessary, verbiage. Apparently your comprehension isn't as good as you seem to think. I could give several scenarios but you seem to be the type that just wants to argue. If you don't feel the need to observe or comprehend the driver your following out front signals/intent thats fine. Children. . . it's time to move forward and actually move this thread forward.

RE: River Walk cg in Coeur d'Alene

Is it perhaps Blackwell Island RV Park?

RE: Red Lodge Montana

We had just driven over Beartooth Pass in a huge hail storm that kept us from leaving the MH at the summit, which was amazing, and we needed a place to camp in Red Lodge. We talked with some locals, and they said that we can camp on the school grounds on the hill just south of town. We actually called the police department to verify, and they said that it was OK. No hook-ups, but It was a great spot with elk wandering beside the MH. We'd do it again.

RE: A simple idea

Her words are not usually hyphenated! But, usually something like. . . no, no, no, the other way.

profdant139 Nicely done! I tried to sing it to her, but poorly. The dogs next door are howling.

RE: A simple idea

I usually mark the end of my backing with an orange cone and place it on the left edge of the road My wife is great at helping me back up. I tell her that I only want 4 signals from her to tell me which way we want the rear of the MH to go. She positions herself at the left rear corner and walks backwards. I don't move unless I can see her. The signals are: Pointing to the left Pointing to the right. Fingers on her hand up, palm in, waving towards her. Hand raised fully, palm out, to tell me to stop She forgets that I have a microphone at the rear of the MH, and I can hear what she says under her breath.

RE: A poll: What does 2 blinks of the left signal mean to you?

While driving in Jalisco, Mexico, I was told that it is not permitted to hold up traffic behind you when making a left turn, so drivers turn on their left blinker and pull off to the right where there is usually a wide shoulder, and then wait for an opening. There is often an adjacent frontage road to use when crossing a highway. I do that when turning left, but am wary of cars in front of me that do it. To make matters worse, it is apparently not universal throughout Mexico, but is a regional thing?

RE: A poll: What does 2 blinks of the left signal mean to you?

When my oldest son got his driver's license, we had a meeting with our insurance agent. He said that if you see a turn signal on. . . it only means that it works. Don't trust anyone.

RE: Spokane WA

RickLight has good info. Google maps suggests that Blackwell Island to downtown Spokane is about 35 minutes. We've had great meals at The Cedars restaurant next to Blackwell RV Park. My FIL was Tom Foley's district assistant in the late '60s, early '70s. who was the speaker of the US House of Representatives, and we dined there several times together. The restaurant was then floating on logs that moved with the wind and waves.

RE: Spokane WA

You can kayak on the Spokane River and Lake Coeur d'Alene from the beach at Blackwell Island RV Park.

We like Blackwell Island RV Park in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

RE: Intro

You are certainly going boldly forward, and you must be looking forward to your new life. But. . . I am mildly concerned when people sell off appreciating assets (homes) for depreciating assets (MH's)? It's hard to get back into the market (home ownership) if some unanticipated events occur and the full-time life-style no longer works.

RE: Mt Rainier

The thread says that there are 7 posts, but I can only see 4?

RE: Mt Rainier

I love Mt Rainier, and have climbed to the summit 4 times. We have not been able to find adequate campgrounds near the mountain for our size of MH. We recently chose to stay at Paradise Lodge with friends and had the RV parked outside so that we could be at 5,000 feet to hike and experience the mountain early in the morning as the sun rises, and as the sun was setting. . . it is a truly magnificent experience.

RE: Hoh Rain Forest

We've done it, you'll be fine. Weekends can be crowded, but OK for you. Do the hike to the Hall of Mosses, we saw river otters playing in the stream. A friend thought that the hike was to the Hall of Moses, and was looking for religious significance. It's sad to see the ridges above the valley that have been clear-cut. Fortunately things grow back quickly in the temperate rain forest.

RE: Hwy 2 Washington

We live on Similk Bay about 4 miles south of you. Today is the Watefront Festival at Cap Sante Marina in Anacortes, which is fun to see.

RE: Hwy 2 Washington

All good information about US-2. It's a beautiful drive. The sun is finally burning off the marine layer this morning in Anacortes.

RE: Polson to Coeur D’alene

We're taken 135 between 200 and I-90 several times and agree with paulj that the route is fine. We used to spend the night at Quinn's Hot Springs on 135 to enjoy a great meal and the hot springs, but they no longer let RV's overnight.

RE: Dark Sky Camping

We camped at The Goosenecks SP in southern Utah and had magnificent dark sky camping. The people in the RV next to us complained that there were clouds obscuring the stars. I smiled and went into my MH and got binoculars for them to better see the "clouds", which actually was the Milky Way. They were stunned, and had never seen it before.
