RE: Sad state of our National Parks-II

But I understand, much better to spend the time and electrons discussing who got a touchdown in last week's soccer game. I've actually volunteered in a national park and you?

RE: Sad state of our National Parks-II

And the "non-political" comments from Yosemite Sam continue. Ok, please explain how any discussion of funding/maintenance/existence of the public parks, or anything else that is owned in common, can happen, other than talking about the policies of the people we elect to control the common? I can understand nobody wants dispersions cast on the ones we think are acting in our interest, but if we are not allowed to look at other policies that might be contrary to our interest can we call ourselves educated? The PLBADC forum is under the grouping Destinations. This The PLBDAC forum states Share your experiences at places spectacular in scenery, rich in recreation or historic in nature. I feel your discussion would be better served in ATC. I don't come here for political discussions. The key word is Boondocking which many of us enjoy either because we like to get away from people or want to save money or both.

RE: Good Sam - what's in it for the campgrounds?

GoogleAds is one of their profit centers. You pay Google for keyword Placement. Then you have to pay internet professionals to optimize your search results, I recently started using DuckDuckGo for 90+% of my searches as I was tired of google stalking me 24/7. The few times I need to go back to google it is funny how obvious certain companies are always at the top of the search results.

RE: Nevada Hwy 50

This is also the Western Express adventure cycling trail. A shorter cut off in Colorado to San Fransisco from the main route coast to coast. So if it's summer and you see some crazy bicyclist with saddlebags you now know why. If you have some sealed cold bottled water you might stop and offer it to them. I know it's a long run between water stops. Years ago I saw a young guy and knew that's what he was doing. I slowed down and he stopped. We chatted for probably 20 minutes. It was early morning and we had maybe one car go by while chatting. Some do this section at night depending on the heat. The kid was telling me as he got farther west he would just find a spot out of sight in the desert and pitch a tent.

RE: Difficulty getting the tow ball to release from hitch

One I see frequently on the craigslist is various spellings of pindel, pendel etc hitch vs the proper spelling pintel hitch.

RE: Anyone use the Harbor Freight solar panel kits?

100 watt Renogy for about the same price. I picked up a 180 watt small folding table type unit with built in controller for about 215 a few years ago but it looks like Solar Blvd has gone out of business. I've gotten burned on most electronic items I've bought from HF. Someof their stuff is decent for the price.

RE: Yet another great mapping resource -- NFS topo PDFs

I use a dedicated Garmin GPS (Montana 600) with topo software and then research certain areas where I may not have a cell signal before a trip. I use ExpertGPS if scanned topos are needed. If you have an android phone there's' an app US Topo Maps Free or Pro ($) That's a great program even if it sometimes crashes on my older android system. When I get a new phone I will pay for the Pro version. Many of the newer topos seemed to be sanitized for your protection.

RE: Anyone use the Harbor Freight solar panel kits?

There was a bird flying around the local Hazard Fraud store the other day. The whole time it was chirping cheap cheap cheap. #hack_comedy

RE: Sad state of our National Parks-II

When they raised it from 10$ to 80$ for the Senior Pass that was just wrong. :M

RE: solar

I have about a 180watt? folding panel about the side of a small folding table. It does me fine and have two Trojan T105's. The downside is the panels are heavy and a little awkward to store under my bed storage.

RE: Camping in Nebraska

If you get away from I80 there are often small towns that welcome tourists with a cheap/free campsite. Towns like Holdrege, Hastings, Nelson, Deschler etc. The Arch at Kearney is pretty cool as I mentioned in another thread. I've passed under that thing many times and never stopped.

RE: RV parks on 80 east

Vedauwoo is a FS CG just off I80 between Laramie and Cheyenne. It's a beautiful spot. 10$ a night I think. At Rock Springs I stayed at the KOA twice but prefer the Fairgrounds just north of town. It's a large gravel lot with pedestals but cheaper and not as noisy. Sidney NE has a CG right next to Cabellas. Country View CG at Ogallala was decent but many years ago. There's a nice museum at Kearney NE. I've drove under that thing maybe a dozen times and never stopped until last year. I enjoyed it. It's about the Oregon Trail and westward migration.

RE: Is a travel trailer with a slide out a good idea for me?

Go to the search engine that starts with G :) Type in rvnet slide issue Grab a beverage of choice you might be there awhile. :) Click the more results option at the bottom of the fist two hits to expand. I go camping to explore not spend all my time in a camper. But what if it's raining out? It's ok, I won't melt.

RE: Heartland Cyclone 3100

I had a Heartland TT and don't recall any problem other than the Carefree of Colorado awning motor stopped working after a month. But I wouldn't own one again due to people having the Heartlands break on them. Search YT videos for the horror stories.
