RE: Kansas City traffic

Ok, for what it's worth, this is the way I would do it. take I 35 to I435 NE up to I 29 N. Continue on 1 29 to St. Joseph and take 36 highway east to I 35. There is a lot of construction on I 35 , but it is south of this junction.

RE: Most scenic rv campground in Glacier

the west side of Glacier is more heavily forested. Apgar Campground is on Lake McDonald with a good view of mountains. the east side campground is not on the lake but is near it and has a spectacular view of the mountains.

RE: how do you follow weather on the road

I use my Weather Channel app to check weather ahead of us on our planned route by entering planned stops along that route. If we find ourselves looking at the leading edge of a very ominous looking line of clouds, I check the radar on the weather channel. If high winds or hail, etc is forecast, we pull over as soon as we can find a parking lot or rest area, etc. and park facing the wind and put down our stabilizers. Then we enjoy the "show".

RE: First Time

definitely leave something in your site to show it is not available. some people use orange cones, others leave a sign or an old lawn chair.

RE: Crockpot Recipes & Salad Recipes

we use a small crockpot when we're in route. It will hold two or three chicken breasts (with a can of cream of mushroom soup and seasonings) or short ribs with a can of french onion soup and seasonings, or country style pork ribs with mushroom or french onion soup..or some bbq sauce if you prefer. for salad, we like adding cooked shrimp and pineapple tidbits or canned orange segments or dried cranberries or a chopped apple to a regular green salad.

RE: Yosemite to glacier NP... route?

have not been up that way in several years, but 93 up through Missoula to Hungry Horse is not a bad road. Or you can move over to I 15 and go up the east side of Glacier, also not bad. the caveat is the possibility of rough roads due to negligence.

RE: Buffalo Bill State Park

West of the state park, there are two federal camps with electricity and water. Wapiti campground and Rex Hale campground. Or you can go through yellowstone to West Yellowstone and choose from several rv parks.

RE: Which one is really about camping?

I read for entertainment and information about routes and campgrounds.

RE: Need help with route for noobs - SoCal to NorCal

95, 40, 58, 99, 46, 5, 20, 101 is one route.... This is the way we would go in our rig. I think highway 20 is one of the very few roads over the coastal range that is good for rvs use. and the others are not bad at all. The descent from Tehachapi down to Bakersfield is the only part that gets a little hairy, and the traffic on 99 is pretty heavy. If it's too much for you, you can move west to I 5, but traffic will be heavy there, too.

RE: 2021 Yellowstone / Teton Road Trip

For Tetons, you should try to make reservations at Gros Ventre campground. There is water and a dump station there. Then you should make reservations at or near West Yellowstone because it sits right on the Park's west gate. And the best way to get there is through Yellowstone Park. If you can't find a site in West Yellowstone, look at Henry's Lake State Park which is 15 miles south of town and just over the Idaho state line and is very nice and has water, dump and elec hookups if you're lucky to get one of them.

RE: Spring Break West Texas?

since all three of your choices usually generate large crowds, all you can do is call and ask about availability and services. or you can try looking them up on the internet and see if they are keeping current on their websites.

RE: Do you let you kids drive your motorhome

our two sons, in their 50s now, have never asked to borrow our MH (20+years), but both asked, years ago, if they could drive it to see what it's like, so Dad moved over to the passenger seat and let them have at it..on an Interstate. Both boys (men) lasted about 30 minutes and never asked again. I (wife) drove it for about the same amount of time the day we took ownership and started home...on an Interstate. I probably should have kept doing that until I got used to it, but sadly, did not, and now I sometimes think about what I would do if DH gets sick on the road, etc.

RE: Camping near water in AZ

Lyman Lake State Park, over on the east side, off 180. or There are three nice state parks on the west, on the Colorado River, between Parker and Lake Havasu City. Buckskin Mountain, River Island, and Cattail Cove. All of these are on the river or lake. But I'm sure you need to reserve them, especially the Colorado River ones.

RE: Custer State Park

we went through a big herd of bison in Yellowstone on one trip. my window was open and when one of the animals brushed by, I reached out to lightly touch the hair on his/her bushy head. They are very intimidating, up close. ditto to lunch at Alpine Inn in Hill City.

RE: Custer State Park

you will need to rent a car for two of the most popular scenic drives. The Needles highway has a tunnel your rig won't fit. The Peter Norbeck scenic highway/road has three tunnels and two piggy-tail ascent/descents. The tunnels are narrow and have ceilings too low for your rig. re dining out... I recommend trying a bison burger because bison is every bit as tasty as a cow. but I can't think of any one particular restaurant to suggest. Keystone, Hill City and Custer all have several eateries to choose from. The State Park Lodge restaurant is good.

RE: Nebraska Rt. 2

we took Rt2 going east from Alliance about 10 years ago. There was very little traffic, two lane, no rest areas, and a few, small towns, bypassed by the highway. So if you need a bathroom, you have to go down into the town to find a place to stop. Other than that, no complaints. We've also done the 83 south from Valentine to North Platte, and again, no problems. I've always wanted to stop at the National Forest campground, but haven't yet. Chadron is a great little state campground. If you like visiting archaeology digs, the Hudson Meng Bison Kill site (do a search)is interesting and so is the Fort Robinson state park. It has a couple good little museums and a film of the history of the fort. There is, or was, a little chicken stand on the highway to the fort... with BROASTED Chicken. Very good and the only broasted chicken place I've seen since the 1960s. Chadron has a free museum on the south side of town with a whole lot of stuff from the early pioneers to that area. And another museum on the east side with Fur Trapping history. If you are going to be there around mid June, the Sioux put on a PowWow fair at Ft. Robinson.
