RE: I am amazed!

I also love the gas mileage we get from our B.

RE: Mail Forwarding

Thanks so much Larry, That is what I didn't understand. The only thing I'm concerned about it my tax stuff that generally comes by mail.

RE: Mail Forwarding

But where do you have them send stuff. That's the part I don't get

RE: South Dakota Advice

We had grandchildren with us last summer and spent 4 days at Custer and could have spent a week there. The town is like 30 minutes to Wind Caves to the south, 30 minutes to Mt Rushmore to the north and Custer State Park to the east. When we were at Wind Caves we asked the Ranger about places to see buffalo and she told us about this area that had had a fire and was lush with green grass that they enjoyed eating. We drove there and she was spot on, biggest bull buffalo we have ever seen right next to the road.

RE: Easiest snowbird route from Seattle to Phoenix in January

We live near Olympia and had to go to a funeral in San Antonio in early Feb last year and we just took I90 to the Yakima turn off and then took I82 to Pendleton and caught I84. The snow was deep along side the road but they really keep the interstates as free of ice as they can for the truckers and we didn't even see any wet spots. Then if I were going to Phoenix I'd take 93 south. The secret is to just watch the weather and leave when you see a dry spot in the future. Stay at a hotel instead of in the RV when you get to Baker or La Grange so you can keep the rig winterized. Id probably stay in a hotel at Twin Falls or Ely also but both places have some nice RV parks so just make the decision when you get there. I suggest stopping as tired driving in winter just isn't smart. Happy travels.

Mail Forwarding

For those who travel around and don't stay put could you give us a short lesson on how to get your mail. I know about agencies that will forward your mail, but how do you find places to have it sent to? I am only really worried about out tax paperwork that only seems to come snail mail.

RE: Big Bend Hwy 118 or 385

Thanks all. Guess since we are coming from the west we'll take 118 into the park and 385 out.

Big Bend Hwy 118 or 385

Im wondering if there is a difference between taking Hwy 385 or Hwy 118 into Big Bend National Park. I'm sort of interested in checking out Terlingua but if 385 is a better road then we won't. Has anyone done both?

RE: Guide for camping at Corps of Engineers CG

Which has the newest version. My problem with campground books things quickly change and you still have to use the internet

RE: Help planning a Washington State/Oregon trip

For the most bang for your tourist dollar, I'd fly into Portland and first go to McMinnville to the Air Museum and see the Spruce Goose. I don't even like airplanes and I loved that little museum. From there Id head south on I5 to Eugene and cut over the Cascades on Hwy 58 to 97 and check out Crater Lake. Heading north, I'd stay on 97 all the way up to the North Cascades NP. BUT I would take a little side trip when I got to the Columbia River and head west on Hwy 3 and check out the Bonneville Dam and Multnoma Falls. Hwy 3 is the Historic Road and your will be awed by the views and the drive. Next I'd cross over the Columbia on the Bridge of the Gods and get on Hwy 97 again and head straight north to North Cascades, making sure you stop at Lake Chelan and take the ferry ride up the lake. Now catch Hwy 2 and cross over the Cascades again. Its a beautiful ride and it will take you close to Whidbey Island where you can catch one of our famous ferries over to Port Townsend where you will start your Olympic NP adventure.Check out Hurricane Ridge, Ruby Beach, and the HoH rain forest. If you follow 101 around, it will eventually loop you back to the town of Olympia where you can get Hwy 12 to Paradise on Mt Rainier, then since your passing it, stop at MT St Helens and back to Portland. Happy travels

RE: Route from Astoria, OR to Wenatchee, WA

While I love 12, If I were towing but still wanted a scenic drive, I'd take 14 or I84 t0 97 and then north.

RE: Monument Valley

If you don't mind spending a few bucks there is a small campground about 40 miles from Monument called Sand Island. Its very nice, but get there early as it does fill up.

RE: Vancouver, WA to Cape May, NJ (November 1st)

We have taken I 90 as last as the first of December without any weather issues but could have just been very lucky. If I were you, I'd plan to leave a few days earlier if possible so you have a buffer zone just in care. The only thing I hate about I90 was Chicago Chicago and Chicago, so we took some secondary roads just south.

RE: Southern Utah in late June?

If I were you, I would just make plans to go. Predicting next years weather is pretty much a guessing game and one of those damned if you do, damned if you don't situations. Going someplace like Rocky Mountain National Park in June would probably guarantee cooler weather.

RE: Which campground at Custer State Park?

I just can't imagine anyplace being bad at Custer. That is one place I'd love to just move to, we had so much fun exploring the area, eating at the small mom and pop restaurants in town and even ducking the hail storms that seemed to happen often in summer. Grandkids got to see their first buffalo up close and personal and enjoyed swimming in the lake also.

RE: Trekking poles

See, I was right, only one who didn't know about them.

Trekking poles

Thought I'd pass this along. My husband walks with a cane and has a balance problem, but loves to hike. We use ADA approved trails but but I still worry. We joined a disabled hiking group and they suggested buying trekking poles. They come adjustable so that when you hold them your arms are at a 90 degree angle, but if you are over 6 foot, you need to make sure you get the right size and if in doubt go to a store like REI for expert advise and fix. They are under $40 bucks so worth the cost. (Im probably the only one who didn't know this LOL)

RE: Road condition of I-40 in Oklahoma

I thought the worst part of I 40 was Gallup east. But that was two years ago.

RE: First Real Outing of the Year

Roy&Lynne, WOW! Sorry to hear or all of your bad luck! Hopefully y’all are doing OK! Our lack of camping was mostly “self imposed”! memtb Maybe we will see you on the road.
