RE: Missing catalytic converter

I hear people are engraving their DL on the converter and marking them some way to make it obvious that they are marked. Minnesota who would expect this sort of thing up there. Some advice More advice for the rest of us High Temp Orange Paint

RE: Where are all of the snowbirds?

Getting into a FL state park is always difficult even tho we have almost 200 parks, not all allow camping. But we just came from the Chiefland area and parks there are about 2/3 full and are charging 35-40 a night and 500-800 or so a month with power charges.

RE: Trip to Yosemite

The sad thing about Cali is that so many great parks are located in the state. Yosemite, Kings Canyon, Death Valley and Lassen Volcanic to name the top four in my list. I have never been to Kings Canyon mainly because it is hard to get to, you have drive deep into the state and loop around Bakersfield to get to it. We tried one year, were camped outside of it when they closed the roads, maybe a fire. I've spent months in Yosemite and DVNP and weeks in Lassen. Along with the minor parks like Pinnacles and Joshua Tree.

RE: Trip to Yosemite

May or early June probably means that Tioga Pass on the west side of the park is still snowed in. Many of the park campgrounds are closed this year meaning that commercial parks will have even more people trying to get in. Park entry You should read thru the rest of that park site for more info. And get the partk app on your phone. Yosemite like Yellowstone and some other major parks is huge, it takes hours to drive places especially if you are camped outside the park. Like many of us Yosemite is our favorite but difficult to get in and far away for us. And worst it is in the evil empire of Cali. That said my wife won a 7 day pass to a commercial cg on the east so we hope to be there this summer. I cannot advise you on cg since we always stay inside the park, until this year but you better make reservations ASAP if you hope to find a spot. May could see snow on the ground in the park.

RE: How to Find Parks?

RV Trip Wizard RVTW which is a planning tool has many thousands of parks and is linked to Campground Reviews which has all of those parks listed usually with reviews and pricing. RVTW Campground Reviews Those are mainly for commercial and park campgrounds not boondocking sites which is a whole different matter.

RE: 12v to 120v inverter

Would 170W run a residential fridge? Seems unlikely. One out let with the small array and I presume, limited battery bank, seems right to me. Probably meant to make coffee and run the microwave for a short time.

RE: Northeast Oklahoma

I still recall the Giant Frog, my mother and I were driving from NJ to AZ, this before Insterstates took over. We kept seeing SEE the Giant Frog signs which we followed to the Giant Frog location where after paying up we were ushered in to see the plaster frog....heh. On the other hand we stopped at Mammouth Cave and took a tour down all the way to the river where there was a boat. No longer allowed.

RE: Camping on Sand

One last driving on sand trick: carry some rolled up old carpet, shag is claimed to be the best. Cut the width of your tires and at least 6 or 8 feet long, 2 each. You can use it to gain traction if you dig you wheels in by jacking up the tire and putting the rug underneath. This is the cheap way, they sell plastic boards for this purpose too. Traction boards

RE: Camping on Sand

OH yeah and salt and fine sand, so be prepared for a major truck and RV desalting cleaning and you'll be finding sand inside the RV for weeks

RE: Camping on Sand

Do you have a 4WD truck? That is the major tip. You want hard packed sand well above the high tide line. And if you hit a patch of soft sand do not stop or slow down. I've pulled some folks out at Jacksonville beach, I have 4WD they did not. AWD does not count.

RE: Route 160 in Colorado

Wolf Creek Pass east of Pagosa Springs has a number of switchbacks and is fairly high but thousands of RVs of all sorts run up and down every year. Nice wide road. So long as it;'s not snowing. Otherwise I don't recall any bad spots. Been up and down that road many times over the years.

RE: Where are all of the snowbirds?

I see a lot of snowbirds on Facebook groups. Thankfully an addiction I have avoided. But RV Village has all sorts of posts about people arriving somewhere, usually with bad photos. Very little info otherwise. These forums tend to requests for help and posts from people who have done something. Travelogs have mostly migrated to blogs.

RE: Where are all of the snowbirds?

All the Snow Bird are basking in the Sun and don't have time for this, too many Happy Hours and Pickle Ball. Rather, there is a solid stream of RV's headed south on I75 and US19 in FL and the two big RV parks in Chiefland FL are over half full.

RE: Wifi options

I've also been looking at Visible. Do you just swap SIM cards in your current phone or did you get another phone just to use as a hotspot? Visible uses Verizon and has a great unlimited hotspot. We find that Verizon has the best coverage , ATT second best. But if you have any cell service and want better service get a cell booster. We have one and are seldom without usable service. And we boondock. If your phone qualifies they send you a sim, otherwise they sell phones, often at a good discount and may throw in a kickback cash. We have had good luck with them with the exception of an incident last year, an update seemed to have bricked my phone so I have had to replace it. Otherwise no problems, be sure to know your pw when an update happens they will require it. They have a bargain price of $25/mo if you join one of their groups.
