RE: Maryland to Washington State -- best routes

We are beginning to plan a WEST Coast trip for 2020 to see our son and daughter-in-law in Washington State. We are in Maryland and would like to take the NORTHERN Route out to Washington State and then return via the Southern Route. If anyone has any ideas about routes, time of the year (weather), your help would be appreciated. bigdon68 Let me try to answer a few questions !! Well you have a pretty Opened ended question here! How Long? When - winter - spring - summer - fall???? Probably late summer - depending on the weather Would you be touring on the way out? Yes, if we see something we really like How far do you normally drive each Day? I would like to stay under 400 miles each day Have you been to the Rockies and the SouthWest before? No we have not -- really looking forward to it What do you enjoy? Just about anything -- we are giving this trip around 3 months Are you Boondockers or FHU only? Full hookup only Give us some ideas so we are not just shooting into the Dark. JMHO, I hope this helps. bigdon68

RE: Insurance?

We have had Progressive for over 10 years. They have reasonable rates and offer Full Replacement Coverage --- which is had to find these days. bigdon68 I found Progessive by best option with best coverage at best price. Goid Sam was several hundred more.

RE: Diesel Fill up

I totally agree. My first year of camping and trying to get the 5'ver under the station awning did it for me. The real clincher was when the DW had to stop traffic while I backed out onto the highway. She said never again. Auxiliary tank in the 2017 F450 is 55 gallons giving me a total of 103. The only stopping I do is the rest stop and when we get to the campground. See MY PICTURES below You don't mention the year of your F350 both my 09 and my 17 accept the larger nozzle. Don't know about years earlier than 09. My 'vintage' 97 F350 diesel fits the truck nozzle. It's a tight fit but it fits. I always use the truck lanes 'cause I'm a truck...lol I too have a 100 gallon in bed auxillary tank.

RE: Travelling across the good ole USA

We will be driving what is in my signature line. We have no real agenda on what to see -- we will work that in as we go. We have no real timeline. We will probably do 400 miles per day (+-) as we travel. I think the most important consideration will be the weather. The Midwest right now seems overwhelmed with tornadoes and flooding so it would appear to me that May and June will be out. Certainly coming back east anywhere close to winter is out of the question when traveling up north. So its kind of tricky. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks Don Maryland

Travelling across the good ole USA

We live in Maryland and our son just moved to Spokane Valley Washington. We would like to visit him next year taking a Southern Route one way and the Northern Route the other. When is the best time to travel. I realize that the Northern route will be difficult anywhere close to winter. With all of the storms in the midwest --- now you see my concern. Any help would be appreciated. Don Maryland

RE: Another Directv Sattelite Question

Eliminate the Satellite Dish. I had a portable winegard Dish for 10 years. Had Dish network for the service provider. Besides the cost it just got to be a big hastle with Dish Network everytime we arrived a a new site and began setup. I AM NOW STREAMING JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING. Our DRV 5th wheel does have a HD Antenna and that pulls in a lot of stations. In addition we purchased an ATT Velocity Hotspot. With my laptop and the Hotspot I stream just about everything through the Xfinity service that we have. Since I have Xfinity at home and have programs recorded with our DVR we can view those thru the Xfinity streaming site. We love it. The ATT Hotspot also gives us a portable hotspot in the truck and wherever else we go. Don Maryland
