Why can't pictures be attached to your post? I didn't know you had to be a computer geek to post something, and attach url's and links. Other forum's have a little button that says "Attach Photo's" and "Bam", you are done. I just spent five minutes typing a post, and lost it when I tried to find a way to attach photo's. Guess I will stick to the "iRV2 Forum"! This, IMHO, is a real shortcoming of this forum and one reason I don't use it much. You first have to post your photo somewhere else then link to it. What a pain, if it can even be done. Strikes me as trying to keep expenses down by having somebody else host the photos and pay for the bandwidth.

RE: Is CA 120 Lee Vining to Manteca Do-able?

Thanks everybody. We decided to travel California 58 to 99 N rather than 395 in part because many campgrounds along 395 are closed for the season. We also couldn't nail down boondocking locations in areas that matched the daily driving distances we needed along 395.

RE: Is CA 120 Lee Vining to Manteca Do-able?

395 S. ~ 58 W.Bakersfield ~ north on 99. JM2ยข ~~ YMMV Thanks. I know we can go via 58. But that's not what I'm asking about.

RE: Is CA 120 Lee Vining to Manteca Do-able?

Is there a way out of Yosemite on the west side other than CA 120 perhaps some combination 140 and 49? We need to get to the west side of Yosemite.

Is CA 120 Lee Vining to Manteca Do-able?

I'm wondering about the feasibility of traveling west from Lee Vining, CA on CA 120 through Yosemite to Manteca pulling a 34' 5th wheel (37' if you count the bike rack on back) with my 6.7 liter diesel dually. I've driven this route many times in passenger vehicles but it has been some time and I've not ever thought about what it would be like to tow a trailer. Nor do I remember if I'd seen rigs like mine making the journey. My fifth wheel is about 15K, and the truck has made every ascent and descent I've asked of it before including several crossings of the Rockies. The truck has an engine brake and typically I don't need to use the brake pedal until downhill grades exceed 8% or so. I'm less concerned about the uphills than I am about the downhill west of Groveland and any of the curves I'd encounter along the way. Has anyone traveled this route in this direction with a truck and trailer similar to mine, and if so, would I be OK or would it be best to plan another route?

RE: Summer Route & Campground Suggestions for Utah & Idaho

Update: I want to thank everyone for their thoughts and suggestions. We stayed almost the limit at Ten-X camp in Tusayan near the Grand Canyon. Then we headed up 89 through Page, AZ to Bryce as it was the only one of the National Parks in southern Utah cool enough to visit. We will catch the others on our way south. We had a great boondocking location in the Dixie National Forest near Bryce. We then headed north on 89 blowing through the heat of Utah as quickly as we could, staying a night at each of a few commercial campgrounds with electricity so we could run the A/C. We circumvented Salt Lake by heading around it to the east passing through Heber City before cutting NW to Ogden and heading N to Ketchum ID where we are now staying in a Forest Service campground and really enjoying the fabulous weather, beautiful surroundings, bicycling and hiking. We also visited the Ernest Hemingway Memorial and his gravesite. Groceries are pricey here but our campsite is just $8 a night with our senior pass. Even the most expensive diesel is way less than in CA. From here we will head N through Challis and Salmon, ID, and Missoula, MT up to the Mullan, ID area where we will bicycle the Hiawatha Trail before heading south to southern Utah when the weather has cooled off a little. We haven't decided on the routing south yet. We may come back this way or head through Wyoming and Colorado. We'll see. Thanks again!
