RE: Tea Kettle

i just went to Target or Wally and bought one of the shelf. no muss, no fuss. Same here. Holds probably about 1/2 gallon and is super lightweight. Was under $10.

RE: 4-Corners

In spite of it being privately owned and hence an admission fee is charged, it's worth it to stop. Years back we stopped, but were late and they had closed the gate. We instead had a tailgate picnic there, took some pics, and left.

RE: Large dog

Dog lover here. We have had dogs of all sizes and types and RV's of all sizes and types since we've been married. We've had a Maltese, Chihuahua, two Draathars, a Lab, and currently two Rat Terriers. From 8 lbs to 90 lbs. Aside from the walking required while on trips several times a day to clean up of dirty paws, storing of food, consideration of boarding when travel destinations when excursions don't allow pets, the only true negative for us is when a large dog ages. For our big dogs, as they got old, we've had to help them in the truck which required two of us because use of a ramp was difficult. Use of a ramp worked for the RV, but not truck. For that reason we heartily believe the size of your dog changes as you age! Now in our 50's and 60's, we have two dogs under 20 lbs that we can pickup easily. The love and a companionship outweighs even the temporary inconvenience of aging for them. We would never be without a canine companion. So many out there that need good homes. We may occasionally board them like when we toured Mesa Verde or hiked Zion and Bryce, otherwise we adjust our trips and excursions and never leave them in the RV. They are always with us.

RE: Evolving Canines, de-evoloving people?

It's pretty bad, but you speak the truth. Even though I can let our dogs poop and pee on the streets, I won't be visiting there to give them the opportunity.

RE: Power awning

The outer plastic coating is peeling off the top side of the awning. i need to get one more trip before replacing this spring. That's what happened to ours. Had to use Gorilla tape to keep it from fraying any more going down the road.

RE: Leave slide out?

Well, I have to add to the above. If it were me, when not there, I'd put the slides in. For a couple of reasons. You'll keep debri off the slide roofs and not have to worry about what's up there when bringing them back in. If you have slide awnings, you don't have to worry about a bad windstorm coming up and damaging them. We keep ours parked at out house and may leave the slides out for a couple of weeks because we're going in and out, but since we're there, we bring the slides in if a bad rainstorm or windstorm is expected. As with any mechanical part, using it is important to ensure it works correctly.

RE: Power awning

We had ours replaced just recently, but had it professionally done. At the suggestion of the shop, we opted for acrylic as it lasts longer and can withstand the elements without fading. It's breathable and in our case came with alumaguard, to protect it when rolled up.

RE: Ghost Towns

Richard. Thank you. Hubby did not want to take the dually to Lemhi Pass from Tendoy fearing the road would be narrow. We've taken many roads in "The Frank" with our Jeep relieved we hadn't taken our dually.

RE: Ghost Towns

Correction on my last post. (Thank you auto correct) it should read: I have been to the top of LEMHI pass many times. Is Lemhi Pass from this direction easily driven using a dually truck? Or is it narrow and not recommended for that size of vehicle?

RE: Keto French Toast Bake

ReneeG, I'm also diabetic, so no processed sugar, low carb is the only safe way to eat. Keto has been working beautifully for me, and I'm not yet fully on the program. We're clearing out the pantry, then not buying the high carb or sugary stuff anymore. When it's gone, I'll be totally keto, as will Spousal Unit, although I'm not sure he really realizes that... Anyway, there are tons of high quality, great tasting keto recipes all over the web. Good hunting. That's what he is doing also.

RE: Ghost Towns

Our favorite was Bannack State Park in SW Montana. They have two nice campgrounds there within walking distance of the ghost town and you can get in easily and out. We did and we're towing a 35' FW. Look on Campendium, under Dillon, MT, and you'll see my review.

RE: Local news story made me chuckle (stolen? dog)

I don't see the crime here. It's called theft. Theft means taking something that doesn't belong to you without permission regardless of "good" intent. This dog is now going to going to someone who has not been vetted properly. There's no telling what this person's intent was-does he want a pet? Is he going to abuse it? Nope, no good here. What he did was illegal and immoral. Do I sound harsh? Don't care. I agree with you. It's just plain wrong what they did. If they had good intent, they would not have done that.

RE: Be careful out there. There are some bad people

Terrible, Terrible....and people wonder why some carry. I wonder if they were. I just read online that a person of interest has been identified. My husband lived in that area years back and said it is not a safe area. It's a shame to have to deal with this, but it seems part of this lifestyle, to be aware of your surroundings and to always be cautious.

RE: More campers than parks

You're in a very populated area. Go north into Oregon or east into Nevada and you'll find all kinds of wide open spaces to camp in and explore. Forget about Idaho, though. Nothing to see there but potato fields. What??? You just killed our spring plans! Twin Falls and onwards.:( Not to worry ,they are just trying to keep people out of Idaho, its a beautiful place. I know, we just passed by Idaho on the way from Yellowstone. This time we are taking the time to camp and see the sights. I have a question or Utah though. Do you have something against Californians? My daughter and son was driving at the same speed along your highways. My son has a Nevada license plate while my daughter has California. Guess what, it was just my daughter who got the speeding ticket (there was even no speed limit posted). Nope, they are equal opportunists when it comes to scamming. Years back, we were on our way back from touring Cedar Breaks, when we were stopped by a police officer for going 5 miles over. Ok we were, but he handed us a ticket and my husband looked at it and said to the officer, "we're not in a school zone. This ticket says we were speeding in a school zone." The school zone sign was 50 feet ahead of us. The officer said, "oops, wrong ticket." He took it back and gave us another pre-written one.

RE: Watch for this rig in Mexico but do not approach

Such a sad occurrance. I hope that the person/persons are caught and we find out what happended. As RV'ers it's unsettling to see this.

RE: More campers than parks

Twin Falls and onwards.:( I just got back from Twin Falls and visiting my sister. The bridge over the Snake River is the only bridge in the US where base jumping is legal. We saw several parachuters jump off. We were were told that people come from all over the world to jump off the bridge. It is well worth a stop. Perrine Bridge. A litter further east is a platform where Evil Kenevil jumped or drove off from.

RE: More campers than parks

Boondocking... you mean no AC? no flat screen TV with 235 stations? No electric blanket? OMG Remember when people went camping to get away from it all? :B "All" to us is the office.

RE: Martingale Collar Danger

I'm so sorry to hear this. Good thing you were there. I didn't know what a Martingale collar was so I looked it up. Poor puppies, both of them and you! What a scare. For us, because we have a dog door, no collars are worn at home, or in our RV when we are on the road. In the past, they've gotten their collars caught on floor heating vents and on the inside of the dog door.

You're in a very populated area. Go north into Oregon or east into Nevada and you'll find all kinds of wide open spaces to camp in and explore. Forget about Idaho, though. Nothing to see there but potato fields. Agree on Oregon and Washington, even Nevada. Just sage brush as far as the eye can see in Idaho.

Boondocking... you mean no AC? no flat screen TV with 235 stations? No electric blanket? OMG If you have solar, you can still do this boondocking. We do!
