RE: Badlands

When all is lost one might do a Google search for `Badlands campground' and see what comes up. Thank you, Doctor Google. :R

RE: Campground Owners

I deleted the other member's question because it turns this into a commercial post.

RE: Pets and National Parks

I'd have posted this in the Pets forum, but it's a ghost town over there. OP: You started off on the wrong foot by disparaging the Pet forum and then got snotty with other members. I've deleted your unkind posts and will reopen the the thread again for now. Please play nice to keep the thread open.

RE: Oregon or what to do after Glacier

We crossed over into Ontario with our dogs a few times this fall. No big deal. We had their vaccination records as required, but they never asked for the papers. They asked a LOT about guns, but didn't care about our pups. If I were in Glacier and wanted to see more, I would absolutely head north into Canada and then loop around to the east to return home.

RE: RV parks North across bridge from Mackinaw City

If you get a chance, venture up to Sault Ste. Marie and stay at Aune Osborne campground. Nice place right on the St. Mary's River where you can watch ore boats entering/exiting the Soo Locks. The boats are amazingly close so you get a real feel for their size. Nice restaurant just down the street called the Antlers with lots of atmosphere. Only about 30 plus miles from St. Ignace. We just spent most of a week up in the Soo this past September and loved it. We stayed in the KOA on the Ontario side. There's so much to see and do up there, like the locks tour, the train tour, etc. We had a comical series of ongoing Google/Yelp fails where every bar, restaurant, or POI we searched for was on the wrong side of the border, no matter which side we were on. We got to know the border agents pretty well.

RE: Point Mugu to San Pedro

I agree with the general strategy of PCH there and 405/101 back. If it were me and I didn't have a hard schedule, I would play around with the departure times on Google Maps to see what times of day are statistically the shortest.

I deleted a bunch of troll posts. Closing. Some of you get lumps of coal. Merry Christmas to the OP. Drive safe.

RE: Indio to Buellton/Solvang gas stations?

We always will opt for the longer way around to avoid as much of the LA basin as possible. So I'd choose I15->138->14->I5->126->101. Being about 58' long flat towing, we usually use the truck pumps at truck stops. If you take the I15 a little further north, there is a Pilot right at the 395 junction. Take the 395 and the 18 to get back over to the 138. Headed to Flying Flags? Art I agree with this route. When you're heading north on I5, pass the 126 and go out of your way about two miles to Castaic. It's very trucker friendly. Fill up there, and then double-back down south on the 5 to the 126. Alternatively, there's a Circle K in Santa Paula at the intersection of 126 and Hallock on the right side of the street. It's right at the intersection where the 126 becomes a freeway instead of surface street. The Circle K has a nice big-rig friendly island on the far right side of the lot (east side).

RE: Hey Smokers! (meat, that is)

I have carried my Weber Smokey Mountain 14" smoker with us on several occasions, but honestly I prefer to just use the LizzQ smoke tube from Amazon on the Weber Q120. If I plan to do quite a bit of smoking I will still take the WSM, but that stupid little LizzQ is so versatile that it is my go to. I even bought one to have at home and use it on the pellet grill. Cool morning? Cold smoked cheese! Yum! Amen to the smoke tube. I smoked sixteen one-pound blocks of cheddar a few days ago so they'll be two weeks old on Christmas Even when I give them to friends.

That's probably enough Cruise Chat for an RV forum. Thanks for all the constructive comments.

RE: 320G first impressions

Nice looking rig. I'm glad to hear you didn't have more gremlins. Usually a new rig has a long list of warranty items. I like your convenience center. Did you remove a partition to fit your 50A cord like that? I have to give you a hard time though: Is that actually three cans of WD40? That's more than a lifetime supply. width=800

RE: About to GO Full Time

6- Option it up. Make sure you have 3 AC units. If you travel somewhere warm, you will have enough cooling. If one goes down, you still have 2. Adding a 3rd to ours was only about $800 from the factory. Also make sure you have slide toppers. Full timing you will stay at CGs longer and all sorts of stuff will fall on your slide. The toppers will keep the slides clean of debris. Get the 3 season door so your deck is usable as a deck. Ours have three, but you can only run two at a time. There's a switch in the bedroom that toggles between the bedroom and garage AC. Sometimes it's a tough choice. The furnace doesn't make it to the garage either, so the garage gets the shaft for both seasons (we only have two seasons in SoCal).

RE: Anyone gone on a Cruise?

OK. Well my wife booked the cruise today! When she gets the bug to do something she follows through with it. Went with Royal Caribbean on the Symphony of the Seas 7 night cruise in early Feb. Booked an outside balcony room. Leaving from Miami, then Cozumel, Routan Honduras, Puerto Costa Maya Mexico, Perfect Day at a Cococay Bahamas and then back to Miami, there are 2 days at sea. Thanks everyone for all the help and info. It was very helpful and insightful. Roatan is one of the greatest places we've ever seen. If my lovely wife ever leaves me, the first place I'll look for her is Roatan.

RE: Anyone gone on a Cruise?

We got a balcony room for our Disney / Alaska cruise, mostly because it was our first cruise and I figured we'd splurge. It was great! We were out on the balcony every day for awhile. Having said that... I can understand, after going on a few cruises, why people would want to save money by getting an inside cabin. My wife probably isn't unique in the fact that she takes for-stinking-ever to get ready. Day or night, that balcony paid off in spades. I could sit out there and read a book while she got ready and I never got uptight.

RE: Still confused about inverter n gen

A UPS doesn't switch. Its battery is being charged or not but the output is always driving the loads. Yep, or else the "U" wouldn't stand for "uninterruptible".

RE: Riders planet

That’s how I first found trona pinnacles a few years ago when we started going to the desert . Planet of the Apes was filmed there. Have you found the fresh water gold pond yet around Cal City? Gold pond or goldfish? Those goldfish were hard to find.

RE: rt 81

My apologies. The snarky posts have been deleted. No need to apologize. It just seems like some people's egos on this forum are a bit out of control. It feels like it's been getting worse lately. I wish folks could take a deep breath and keep their perspective.
