RE: Albuquerque Balloon Festival Questions

Evidently, the fiesta is making a change this year to parking and RV arrangements. It will be interesting to see what people think of it. Lynn

RE: US Border agent gave my passport to.....??

Happened to me once, too. Only my incident happened at Checkpoint Charlie reentering West Berlin after a visit to the bookstore in East Berlin, and the agents were toting machine guns. It was a bit uncomfortable, to put it mildly. :) Lynn

RE: Is this forum dead?

Forums like this one are a thing of the past. Only us dinosaurs left. The rest are either dead or on other social media. :) Lynn

Please buy a Mac. It sounds like you might be a happier person with one. Lynn

RE: Are Airstreams low maintenance?

Yes and no. Like any surface, aluminum requires some care and feeding. If done right, you'll have many years of service, perhaps longer than you'll live to enjoy. If not done right (or if not done at all), you'll have yourself a nice, expensive nightmare. :) Lynn

RE: Under belly fabric necessary?

Probably a fiberglass-based fabric. We use it in its non-RV form (called "Pet D-Fence") to protect buildings and more from damage from woodpeckers, but it's also used to replace screens in screen doors because pets can't tear it up. And my guess is that it's also pretty good at keeping rodents from entering your RV from below. Lynn

RE: Chaco canyon NP in NM ?'s

If you took the road in from the east from Nageezi, that's at least partly off-reservation trust land, not reservation per se. "Off-reservation trust land refers to real estate outside an Indian reservation that is held by the Interior Department for the benefit of a Native American tribe or a member of a tribe. Typical uses of off-reservation trust land include housing, agriculture or forestry, and community services such as health care and education." (Wikipedia) Lynn I have driven two 4WD pickups and a rental SUV into Chaco, but wouldn't take my car or fifth wheel on that road. On one of the pickup trips, I brought a tent, sleeping bag, food, and water and stayed at the park campground. The other trips, I have stayed in Bloomfield (closer than Farmington), and driven to Chaco from there. Once, I drove out late at night (after the Saturday night star party) and nearly hit a bull elk standing in the middle of the road just outside the park boundary. FYI, the really bad portion of the road is on the Navajo Reservation. And they apparently don't plan to improve it in the near future.

RE: Chaco canyon NP in NM ?'s

THe NPS has a campground at Chaco, but, as agesilaus pointed out, the road in can be a devil (unless you're just lucky enough to get there when it's been freshly graded). Note that most of the road in is dirt and gravel across non-NPS land; it switches to paved once you enter the NP itself. :) Lynn

RE: 2017 Honda CR-V flat towable?

Kind of like the Honda Fit. When equipped with the CVT, it is not towable four-down. However, the Fit can also be ordered with a manual transmisison, and it is towable. (The manual has six forward speeds. And if we drive the Fit for mileage rather than for speed, we get just below 53 mpg.) :) Lynn

RE: Rt# 66

Yep, and it ends pretty much at the Santa Monica pier in CA. And it crosses itself about 20 miles from here in Albuquerque! :) Lynn Yep, I66 is definitely not the same as Rt 66. :) Lynn True. The famous RT66 starts/ends at Adams and Wabash in Chicago.

RE: Need for tire chains on Yellowstone trip

May. If it snows, it'll be wet heavy stuff that melts practically on contact. Pull off, wait until it melts and move on. It is foolhardy to drive on it (even with chains) if you know it'll be gone in no time at all. Lynn

RE: $3150 to service Onan 7k and replace ignition coils!

I had a similar experience at the Cummins / Onan place in Albuquerque. Not about to go back there again! :( Lynn

RE: Best Route To Santa Fe NM from Michigan

Make your way down to Chicago country, get on Route 66 and follow it to just past Santa Rosa, NM. Then you turn northwest on old Route 66 (pre-1937) and go right to Santa Fe. :) Lynn

RE: Need advice on reducing trailer bounce!

Airstream has them on torsion axles. You have to weld a small plate onto the arm. Lynn Install shock absorbers. :) Lynn Don't think that's an option, I think those have Dexter Torflex axles.

RE: Finding places to dump tanks

Your first time in a camper? Ah, you may be in for a surprise. Here's the advice: Be very water spare. Your waste tanks are directly related to your water use: What comes out of the outlet goes down to the tank. Further, your water heater tank is itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeney compared to your home wather heater, so navy showers. Don't let the water run in any sink while you're not actually using putting that water to work. So, for example, wet your hands, turn off the water, soap up your hands, turn it back on and rinse quickly. And wet your toothbrush, turn off the water; brush your teeth, then turn the water back on for a quick rinse. THe less you use, the longer your tanks will hold out. :) Lynn

RE: loosing old members

Different kinds of social media, I'd say. Forums are kind of old style. (Which is sad because I prefer forums to more modern versions of social media.) :( Lynn
