RE: printer on the road

There was room under the bed and I put our Epson under there. You can buy a really small travel printer but they run around $200 for the ones I looked at.

RE: Cali planning carb tests for Class A

They would have to build and staff dozens of entry stations, how many roads cross the Cali border. I was watch one video earlier where the guy making it crossed the CA-NV border at Rhyolite. And worst case even if your RV is in perfect condition they may hold you up for hours at the inspection station and charge you big bucks for the inspection. Have to pay all those Cali state salaries to man those stations. And this in the state where lifeguards can make $200K a year. They already have port of entry stations on every road into calif ! There is a agricultural station stop already that’s staffed Well the video showed the actual crossing, the fellow doing it got out (Hwy 190) and walked a couple of hundred feet across the boundary line and there wasn't a building in sight. I count 10 border crossings between Lake Havasu and the north end of DVNP. And I doubt that most of them have ag stations. And there are maybe 15 more further north. If they actually carry this out I suspect they will used the tried and true sticker system, like they use on tags. That way the cops can identify people without a current inspection sticker and not stop every RV on the road.

RE: Why Can't I Reserve this?

Yes, I have stayed here once before, when I was growing up and camping with my parents. At that time we could drive our vehicle onto the beach. I don't think that's allowed anymore? I'm not sure about St Augustine Beach but a number of towns on the coast allow you to drive on the beach for a fee, $5 or so IIRC. Depends on Turtle nesting season too.

RE: How long do you drive/tow in a day?

Depends on your time frame, fulltimers 150-250 miles. Folks with limited time it can be much more. Before retiring we would do 400 miles plus on vacation for the initial drive to our intended vacation area. And yes this is an often discussed subject, lots of thread but it boils down to what I set out.

RE: FL questions

There are a few gulf beaches but they are generally off the main roads and maybe not so easy to find. I can think of three. And these are not the wide sand beaches you will find from Tampa/St Pete south or on the Atlantic. St Pete beach has excellent beaches that may not be so far for you. Rock Crusher Canyon is one I often hear mentions as an RV resort near Crystal River. For swimming do not ignore the springs and rivers.

RE: And so it begins. (In North America).

Someone introduced a bill in the Oregon legislature to ban the sale of diesel. This is so well thought out since trains, semis and I think most cargo ships burn diesel. article And in the US, EV's a rare except the west coast.

RE: Maine to Yellowstone

How long do you have to make the trip -- 3 to 6 months???? One can see the main points of YS in 2 days, or you can spend a life time seeing YS. I suggest you look at the route that the guide bus tours take to see the south west in a week or so to help you plan your time.. 1. A day or a 1/2 day drive through the Badlands of SD 2. A week to see the 5 national parks in SW Utah. 3. A day to see Grand Teton NP You need to make reservations soon!!!!! Geez that's the fly bye and say you've been there plan. Better to concentrate on fewer parks and really see them. Let us know what you like to do, hike? And what RV do you have?

Unknown National Cavern outside Cody

I'll bet you never heard of Shoshone Cavern National Monument aka Spirit Mt. A cavern right outside Cody that is gated and locked with no entrance to the public. I had never heard of it before but PPA put up an article about former National Parks and included this one. Cody paper According to that article you can get in by getting a permit froim the BLM and paying a key deposit

RE: Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper, Alberta

I assume you know about the border closure no sign of it opening so far. And check for campground closings, I know some major ones were closed up there. Otherwise 3 days at each should be fine.

RE: Paperwork

Depending on how long you'll be traveling you may want to have copies of your birth and marriage certificates. Passports too

RE: Paperwork

I saw that inspection and it was obviously an arranged demo of what a state inspector does on a Semi Truck. Surely you've seen them on the side of the road inspecting a semi they pulled over, usually with a portable scale too. Not something they do on RV's. Tho I could see it happening on an obviously and visibly defective RV in very rare occasions Anyway we have a safe under the bed and keep vaious paperwork in that. If you get one make sure it's not one that can be opened by jamming a Bic pen barrel in the lock.

RE: Wifi access while on the road near Savannah, GA?

Many not all Home Depot and Lowes have free WIFI, fast food restaurants claim to but I found them to be very unreliable. Especially for high bandwidth. Florida rest stops have WIFI I don't know about GA. No hotspot on your phones? That is the best.

RE: camping outlook 2021

I have seen a few reports of people trashing FS camps in one case. But when I look at the location they are always near a city, Phoenix in that example. Once again we saw no overcrowding in the heartland free states. We did end up in an overflow area in our one night in New Mexico right at Raton Pass. Very hostile park workers too. My hypothesis is that this over crowding is concentrated in: 1) States that closed State Park camping 2) Limited private park camping, I hear NM allows only 40% occupancy for example. So those places have created their own problems. I saw one state claiming that they were closing state park camping because of limited funds. Probably caused by having no income from those campgrounds. Here is our path so you can see where we were: Summer 2020 trip

RE: camping outlook 2021

FL state parks are booked up for the foreseeable future. Being an open state has impacted availability for a lot of parks Florida State parks are almost always booked solid, especially those near a coast. Nothing new there. They haven't been ranked number one in that nation for no reason

RE: camping outlook 2021

It's possible that the capacity restrictions were not strictly for social distancing, but to lessen the number of people visiting the area in order to reduce the possible strain on local resources such as medical facilities, or on the campgrounds themselves. That makes no sense the number of people travelling is way down so visitor demands on local resources is reduced. There is zero logic behind all of these draconian measures. It's pure power grabbing. NM BTW has reduced private park capacity to 40% from the last thing I heard.

RE: Tennessee state parks

We stayed at Cumberland Mt last summer, yes you need a reservation. You check in at the office and there is no gate. A bit too crowded but still nice park overall
