RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

Gorgeous day - mostly - yesterday. Out and about with our B. Unfortunately we found out that our generator will not start. I made appointment to have it looked at and serviced. Now off to Anchorage next week. Yes, we will be camping.

RE: Accessible Camgrounds and Trails

I apologize for the repeated bad behavior of one member in this thread. I've deleted his troll posts and he gave me a vague assurance that he won't return. I hope your idea works and people contribute their experiences here. Maybe you could start it off with some examples of your own? I appreciate your efforts. I did not see the posts. Thanks.

RE: Accessible Camgrounds and Trails

Alaska, near Anchroage: Potter Marsh has a lovely trail which could be done with wheelchair. Very scenic, restrooms in summer are almost always meticulously clean. They have a host. Near to there, heading to Portgage Glacier/Whittier (will have to look up the road name) is Williwaw Campground is a lovely trail which is accessible. The campground is one of the nicest here. Paved roads, some pull throughs, reservations needed. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g60880-d2266784-Reviews-Willawaw_Nature_Trail-Anchorage_Alaska.html

RE: Accessible Camgrounds and Trails

Could we start a list of Accessible Campgrounds and Trails - and other related facilities that we find on our route? Thanks to all who contribute. I'm completely out of my element here, except that I think I know a good idea when I see one. I'm not active in this particular forum at all, other than to keep an eye on the posts and make sure that people aren't mean and don't use dirty words, etc. I like this idea. If it gets much momentum, I'll turn it into a "sticky" post at the top of the page. And apologies to the two responses that I already deleted. They were both unhelpful and served to stifle future responses. Thanks. My DH has MS and I have arthritis. We like to camp and hike where the facilities meet our needs. I am trying to get a list of accessible areas for Alaska and will post as I get them.

RE: Best Class B

We're excited about heading out soon on our first trip in our Galleria. We are pretty excited about this trip from AK to NY and then touring some of Canada. We are taking the long way and seeing as much as possible along the way. Hope we see some of you on the roads too. https://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e262/majicmom/Galleria%20QCCG%2018_zpsrveigs9w.jpg width=640 Quartz Creek Campground - Cooper Landing, AK

RE: Best Class B

We have first trip in our new Travato last week to New York city.I love the ease of handling and driving.It drives just like a van.Good part is that after a long time using Class C now we can easily park our B in city parking spaces.It is compact,good quality material,all the bells and whistles.I like the Solar panel charging system.Another good part is that now I can park it in my driveway and do not have to pay storage fee. Nice! We are heading to NY from AK in May.

RE: Best Class B

Thanks everyone for comments.After lot of research and looking at various dealerships we decided to go with Winnebago Travata 59G.It fits our needs.Will get the delivery in next couple of weeks. Excellent choice! We had decided on the K, but had an opportunity to purchase another one of our top choices - Galleria by coachmen. New, but 2017. Enjoy!

RE: What gps do you use?

Anyone use the Gaia GPS App? Downloaded it and will probably subscribe. Just wanted to see how others like it.

RE: Is 70 the age to stop towing

I used to think that 70 was old too. Having had experience as a camp host for years, I find that who the driver is, the driver's health, personality, and patience, and experience is as much as a determinate of good driving as much as age. If your physician says your healtlhy and you are physically able to drive and tow, you should be OK. What does your opthalmologist say aobut your eye health. Can you get somseone to "check you out" by riding along, following you, and observing you manipulate your vehicles? When camp hosting (we also worked a boat launch) we watched loads of people back their trailers up. I think experience and ego are the biggest factors in a person's ability. I have seen 40 year olds take 20 min to situate their TT and an 85 year old guy, who got out, took a look at the site then backed up once and was situated. The big factor was experience with both of them. Unfortunately the 40 year old refused help with directing and backed up into a post smashing his brand new toy hauler back. Couldn't get the toys out to play with. There are a lot of people out there to help you. Few will refuse if you ask.

RE: Is Roadside assistance worth it?

We have had GSC roadside assistance and with few exceptions, found it very helpful. Living in AK, we found that they really have not got the facilities or software (I guess) to locate us. While abut 2 miles from the end of the Denali Hwy on a vacation, we had a flat. After findng out that Alaska is indeed one of the 50 states, instead of sending someone from about 1 hour away, they insisted on sending someone from Anchorage. We ended up managing it ourselves. Luckily someone helped tighten the lugs. My DH is disables soemwhat, and I am just plain old. This is why we cound on roadside assistance. We did have AAA - which I found just as clumsy to use as GSC RA if not more. Also our auto insurance has RA. I would not go anywhere without it. Hopefully we won't need to us it, but I am glad that we have it.

RE: Night stops with RV

We have traveled across the country from and to Alaska several times. We have stayed in Walmart, pull off places, municipal parks, etc. I don't let the noise of Walmart or any other place bother me. I have only felt unsafe once while camping and it was in a private, paid for campground. Neighbors were drunk and fighting. Usually when we stay at Walmart or similar, we use the "fingers" that we cary with us and a plastic shopping bag or two and pick up junk that others have left on the ground. Often when others see us doing it they join in. We have met several other RVers in Walmart and truck stops that have become friends with distances. I met one woman who was staying at Walmart - had been there a week. Her DH became ill. She was given a spot to plug in, had awning and lawn chair out with their permission. One such store near us has a license as a campground. Allows for 3 day (can be more) camping. Has free water and dumpstation. Pull-offs can be tricky. When there is a sign "No camping" we don't (if we can see the sign). We have never been bothered by LE, but left once because we didn't feel comfy about another vehicle that pulled in after us. Especially when the beer cans were tossed out the windows. We travel Route 2 most of the time across the country and there are several free and low cost campgrounds along that way. We do utilize canpgrounds when we aren't trying to get somewhere quickly. WE often try to do "pick up" at pull off places along the AK highway. It seems that when we do pull off, someone else has stayed and left their garbage - and often other stuff - for us to clean up. We are looking forward to our East bound trip again this summer and will be enjoying staying at all kinds of campgrounds as well as Walmart, truck stops, and pull off places along the way.

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

Beautiful day, sunshine all day. Clear night but can’t see any aurora due to light pollution in our apartment complex. Thinking about taking our B out overnight tomorrow if it is going to be clear. Kind of a practice run for our cross country trip this summer. Just hoping we can hold it all together till then. We are already trying to get our things together, but too much to do to get ready to pack. I am also trying to finish a quilt for our bed and make “pillow covers” to cover our extra blankets, etc. Living in a B is going to be a big adjustment from our 38 foot A. I think we will love it though.

RE: What Did You Do To Your Class B Today ?

Had a really, really, nice day yesterday. Took the B for a ride, did a little cleaning. Picked up some lunch and went to a lookout to check on the volcanoes. Drove home and decided to sit a while and listen to radio. We were pretending to be on the road again.

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

Rosie, we beat you at 48 degrees today. Snow about half-way melted. Cloudy and some wind, but still a beautiful day here in Alaska.
