RE: Driving from Albuquerque to Orlando in October

RE: Driving from Albuquerque to Orlando in October

We came across US 82 from AL to US 287 in TX west of Dallas last month. 82 is good until you get east of Paris TX where it degrades. So that is a bypass around DFW keeping that in mind

RE: Slide out motor problem

If you can get to the back side of the wall, then thru bolt and put a metal plate on the back side. One of those reinforcing thin metal nailing plates would work. For extra points epoxy the plate to the wall

RE: Driving from Albuquerque to Orlando in October

Depends on timing, I would drop down to I-10 and then head east, avoid New Orleans using the I-12 bypass, and then south on I-75 to the Florida Turnpike to Orlando. But considering the current weather in Louisiana that route is out until they get the mess cleaned up.

RE: River Walk cg in Coeur d'Alene

I called them when I was in the area the latter part of April. Price was a tad high for me. I stayed at Alpine RV Park, Hayden, ID, US95...around 35.00 a night and nice. Short distance back into Coeur d'Alene to visit the area. According to Campground reviews the prices are about the same now at $45/night. We may just boondock if we can find a spot

RE: River Walk cg in Coeur d'Alene

Is it perhaps Blackwell Island RV Park? $60+ a night is a tad rich for us.....heh

River Walk cg in Coeur d'Alene

I was sure that I've seen that cg: River Walk RV Park, mentioned here. But our highly effective search engine cannot find it. I suspect they may be filled for Friday/Saturday anyway but we are looking for a place in that general area for a couple of days. Before running up to Bonner's Ferry and heading east on Hwy 2

RE: Optimal Internet Setup for Travel Trailer

I have ATT and the wife has Verizon. And surprisingly in WY and ID she has been getting roaming warnings and no service while my ATT usually has a signal and no roaming.

RE: Montrose to Ouray

IIRC you won't hit any steep climbs and switchbacks until you get to Ouray. Right after town the road starts UP

RE: Shadow Mountain Tetons

Yeah that's the campsite, I've seen comments calling this the best boondocking site anywhere. I don't have the experience to confirm that but it is the most scenic spot we've ever had in 30 years of camping. And it's free for 6 days

RE: Shadow Mountain Tetons

Did you check out Antelope Flat while you were there? Just the Mormon Row site which is on both sides of the road and has some old farm buildings. Quite popular. No antelope seen but a few jackalopes were in the area.

Shadow Mountain Tetons

We had our first boondocking stop, three days at Shadow Mountain in the Tetons NF. The sites are spectacular you are looking right at the mountains over that grassland strip. Sunset over the peaks each night. Unfortunately the first two nights were rain but the second night's storms didn't start until late so we had a campfire. Thw last night was clear. We got there on the afternoon of 7/3/19 and were happy to find a site--number 15 at the lower three cg. There are upper cg but I did not want to pull our TT up that dirt road unless we had to do so. To find this place turn right on Antelope Flats road the one after Moose Junction. Go down past Mormon Row to the tee and turn left. Follow that until you see a dirt road to the left with a big dirt turn around. Follow that and you'll see three cg to the right. Near the end the road has big ruts. I was semi surprised at the number of optimists driving thru looking for a site on 7/4 and 7/5. I was surprised to grab one of the two left in the early afternoon on the 3rd. One knocked on our door on the 4th and said the ranger told them they could camp on our site if we gave permission. I said OK and they pitched a small tent up in the trees. And alternative is to continue way past antelope flats to the Cunningham cabin, turn right and go to the Triple X Road cg. Do not turn at the Triple X dude ranch. We were mildly concerned about the dirt road condition with the rain but the last day was dry. The AF 25Y with 2 6V Trojan batteries made it thru three days easily and probably could have done 1 or 2 more days. We found this spot because our blogging member posted about it last year IIRC It was on to Idaho from there to Challis Hot Springs commercial CG. No sewer connection!?

RE: USA RV Park in NM LOL The first review on that site is mine. The renting out the 20 amp plug was very irritating, it also put the neighbor very close to you. Otherwise it was OK the trains did not bother us like the truck traffic noise we hit several days later in Utah.

RE: Need help with a few questions, re: buying first diesel

I am a 4WD fan for towing, you don't need it often but when you do you will really miss it. Wet grass, big muddy puddles, grades all found in CG can call for 4WD. It also expands your touring range greatly out west. I assume it is an advantage in snow but have minimal experience consisting of pulling a fellow out of a snow bank in the WY mountains. I think you need 4 sets of chains tho. 4WD is heavier and will supposedly reduce mpg by 0.5 to 1 mpg. It also makes your truck higher by a few inches.

RE: Camping World about to go under??

We stopped at a CW in Texas and the signs were changed to Gander. So it is really happening.

What version of windows are you using: Win 7 update Configure browsers Configure Win 7

RE: Encryption software

You should have gotten an update that enables TLS 1.2 through Windows updates. So no need to do anything. TLS 1.1 will no longer be supported by any of the major browsers soon, so your website is already behind the times if they are still supporting it. Ditto just update Windows and your browser
