RE: Help me plan my trip! North Dakota (TRNP) & Minnesota (VNP)

The south unit of TRNP at Medora has several commercial campgrounds which fit your needs. The north unit, about 65 miles away, not so much. The north unit is one of the least visited national parks and the park campground is considered primative but I liked it.

RE: 5th Wheel Friendly RV Parks I-5 Norcal/ Southern Oregon

Any of the Oregon State campgrounds along your route are top notch. Valley of the Rogue State Park near Gold Hills is just off I-5 and has all services.

RE: California Redwoods Campground

There are several areas of redwoods in NorCal: near Crescent City, Klamath River, and Avenue of the Giants south of Eureka. State campgrounds for the most part are closed in March. My favorite commercial campground is Ancient Redwoods RV in the Avenue of the Giants near Redcrest. It is closed until the 1st of April. Expect rain and fog at this time of year.

RE: Help with trip planning from San Diego to San Francisco

Regarding your last stop, Pismo-Avila-Morro Bay. Another possibility might be San Simeon State Park near Cambria. The Washburn section is called primative because it has vault toilets and water faucets. Wonderful scenery, Hearst Castle is open again, and elephant seal rookery. Access back to 101 just south of Cambria.

RE: motorhome on pch

I have driven the central and northern sections with a total length of 52 feet. The section north of Cambria is a challenge but doable with care. The vista points are all on the south bound side and few will accommodate your total length. I would only do this section mid week. The northern section is more restrictive and the section north of Westport is just not worth the trouble. Go inland at Fort Bragg to Willits. The Oregon coast is no problem. Highway 1 and 101 makes PCH one of the great drives in the country.

RE: Alaska - 2023

I echo the suggestion that you not try to make loads of reservations. In all my trips north, I have never stayed 10 days in either Fairbanks or Anchorage. Allowing flexibility for weather, or fires, or special events is important. This year has had many rain days this summer. Some years has been extra smokey. My last trip up, the smoke was so bad I was going to divert to Dawson City but the road was closed due to a I backtracked to British Columbia and Alberta which are both wonderful in their own right.

RE: Driving from Ventura to Palm Springs through Pasadena

My preferred route is to take the 118 from Ventura through Simi Valley to the 210, mid week if possible. I leave Ventura after 9am to hit Pasadena after the morning rush. At that point, rush hour traffic is in bound and I am going out bound.

RE: 2014 Ford V-10 Dropped plastic cap down oil fill tube

Am I the only one who thought of using a shop vac to suck out the fill tube?

RE: Part of Alaska Highway closes due to road washout

It is long way back to the 37 if you are going north. Camping at Muncho Lake is a good alternative. Those going south, the Cassiar is a preferred direction anyways. Stuff happens in the north, be prepared.

RE: Fuel cost in your area

Ventura, Ca. Regular $5.77, Diesel $6.45 after the 3 cent increase in tax applied today.

RE: RV Park recommendations for Alaska

Maybe the first thing is not to over plan the route and stays. Expect your plans to change due to road conditions, fire and smoke closures, and weather. On your list of city names, I didn't see ones in the Yukon and British Columbia. Most repeat visitors spend weeks, not days, in Northern BC and the Yukon. I agree that the Church book is the better resource, much easier for me to find spots. My first trip up I did not know about the Tour Saver book. I got one each time on most of my last few trips up but I have not been back up since 2019. I didn't really save any money with the two for ones, we just did twice as many excursions. I fish so lot of my movements from one location to another were following the salmon runs. We seldom stayed in the same place for two weeks but did revisit almost every place except Fairbanks and Delta Junction. There were no bad places

RE: best route from Barstow to Pismo Beach, CA

It is roughly 20 miles farther to take 46 through Paso Robles. Traffic is much heavier that way also and you have the Cuesta Grade to descend southbound into San Luis Obispo.

RE: Bryce Canyon NP to the Northeast

Remember, any state highway designated SCENIC in Utah must include 10% grades with slow to 15mph curves..I think it's state law. But, highway 12 is a wonderful road going from Escalante to Torrey and not to be missed.

RE: Alaska 2022??

My last three trips, I've used the ferry to take the short trip from Skagway to Haines. You get the experience of the ferry and bypass the long drive from Skagway to Haines and then back up to Haines Junction. Cost of the fuel avoided made up for the cost of the ferry for two people, RV, and toad. Not all of the ferry routes are priced that extremely. The longer rides were not on our agenda because of our pupper dog.

RE: New RV park comming to Grants Pass Oregon

If it’s not on the Rogue, I’m not interested. Try going up I5 about 10 miles or so and camp at Valley of the Rogue State Park, right on the river.
