RE: Outfitter Apex 8 7/7/19 Heading west

Nice rig you have there. Good trip plan too.

RE: DIY - Torklift Extension Handles

Nice. The older we get the heavier stuff gets too. Yeah -- but smarter (in some cases)

RE: Alaskan pro/con

O/kohldad ~`what does your post have to do exclusivly with "Alaskan" campers ?? ~~ Bugs are bugs. JM2ยข ~~ YMMV The cabover area is wide open to all elements - bugs, rain, etc - until the inside walls are folded up manually. (Unless they've recently changed the design)

RE: TR: Mendocino Coast Camping, May 2019

Nice, Dan. Great area -- been there many times, for many reasons.

RE: Using tape on aluminum roof seal?

Eternabond works great. Appearance is/can be questionable, depending on how visible it will be, what color it's going over, and how much you care about how it looks.

RE: The best camping spots are free.

Don't know about 'anywhere', but I know I've found a bunch WAY away from cities.

RE: Quick and Easy Camper Life

50th high school reunion, about 1000 miles away, for me. Enjoyable drive and boondock camping there and back. Fully furnished apartment - with my own bed - while there. No air fare, no motels, no car rental, no crowds. Ain't saying it was free - but a good deal cheaper and a lot more pleasant than the alternative. Boy, some of those people were OLD!.

RE: Pop up camper vs hard sided camper

Pretty good comments and advice so far -- none of the 'never a popup' kind. If you want to have a look a the kind of places you can camp in a popup, that a look in the Trip Reports link at my, and especially Whazoo's, trips.

RE: whoa! I guess it's a truck camper

I like it - but don't know about taking it offroad. The truck is almost as old as me!

RE: Emergency Communications

We've carried a basic SPOT for years, never needed it except to send a check-in. Same for me. But it could literally be a life-saver if you ever need it.

RE: Central Utah

Yes -- great pictures. Thanks.

RE: Snow: how deep is too deep for camping?

Or you could go with zero snow -- 8000 ft in the Az strip. link 1 link 2 And if you get tired of that, you could go to Toroweap or Whitmore Canyon Overlook. .

RE: Denali Hwy vs Fairbanks?

I think it really depends on whether you prefer a city or the wilderness. I enjoyed camping along the Denali Highway much more than the sights in Fairbanks. Many places to camp, hike, and explore. Here a picture of the mountain from the highway. http://www.ctwillis.com/Alaska/all_photos/111_1135.JPG width=640

RE: OK... I am starting to get tired of the snow...

No offense, but I really appreciate the snow (in Colorado) -- so does Lake Powell.

RE: Craggy Wash B LM near Lake Havasu City AZ

Wow -- what a loser. You didn't have something nasty painted on your RV did you? (I know you didn't)

RE: Inverter charging the camper from the trucks batteries.

Wouldn't the efficiency loss be realized only in fuel economy which should be inconsequential? I'd agree with the first part -- the engine is the energy source in both charge methods. Don't know about inconsequential - but probably. You - as in not me - have to know all the factors and do the calculation. Heavy duty 12v is cheap, easy, extremely well tested, and known to work.

RE: Inverter charging the camper from the trucks batteries.

Good idea for reducing transmission loss but, imo, loss of efficiency converting 12v to 120v and back to 12v negates the advantage. I would, and did, stick with the native 12v connected through 2 gauge wire.

RE: VTR - virtual trip report, my last one

Thanks all for the generous comments and compliments. About 'old' -- I said I was 75, not old. My hope for all of you is that you're in as good condition as I am when you're 75. And Dave -- keep watching those mirrors. You never know who's coming up behind you in a brand new 2019 GMC Duramax/Allison 3500 long bed dually carrying a 6000 lb Host Mammoth triple slide. Won't be me -- but still, you never know.
