RE: Montana

bukhrn, I hear you on that. We live on 15 acres basically in the country and have a neighbor lady who ******* about some kids who ride their 4 wheelers on their own property 2 houses down the road and also about any gunshots. When I was on my farm we had a couple who moved in 1/2 mi away. The woman bitched because the asparagus pickers started at 6 or 7 a.m. and woke her up

RE: Montana

I don't have advice for you, but it is interesting to note there is no Montanans replying a you are getting answers from as far away as Florida. Personally, we found Montana a beautiful place no matter where we were. They don't want you to feel it's so beautiful that you move there. Many do and then try to change the social things to where they left. My youngest son moved there in 2011 and doesn't let it be known he's not a native Montanan.

RE: Montana

Virginia City is a neat stop,. Unlike some of the others I think there's a lot of beautiful scenery. Much of the eastern part of the state is pretty open so get more into the mountains for the scenery. The most important thing is get off the interstate and 2 lane it.

RE: Mystery campground -- Lewiston Idaho ????

It's highly unusual for either a NFS or BLM campground to have full hookups. It may be unusual, but the Pink House has full hook ups. If you were to go back I bet you'll find it was The Pink House. We stayed there 2 years ago and yes it's a very nice place. Certainly worthy of a second stay

RE: Long term camping questions

Florence Oregon on the central coast Don't miss all the many lighthouses. That looks like the Coquille River lighthouse at Bullards Beach State Park

RE: Towing to Crater Lake Oregon

We were there in early June 2019 and the road around Crater Lake wasn't open yet. But the main roads were great. If you've never been there it's a beautiful area

RE: Buffalo Bill State Park

Which is more important? A certain campground or seeing Yellowstone and staying wherever you can find a site

RE: Trailering

I guess I have tired of the same ol same ol items that seem to be beaten into ground so many time. I guess I over looked the newbies but so many issues are like picking fly poop out of the pepper. I do drive from Detroit area to Tunica MS in one shot. It is about 800 miles I guess. I travel at 65mph and get around 11 mpg. So if I had a 55 gallon tank I would fill up what once? I think that a trip over 12 hours that I relish stopping for a walk around and fuel. I really cannot think of any reason to do a 55 gal. tank. (unless you are from Texas where you measure trips in hours not miles). I do think this site helps more newbies on the basics but us salty dogs rarely get any really inspiration stuff. It must be nice to know everything. Or is it "you can't teach an old dog new tricks"?

RE: Trailering

After several years of visiting this site I have to ask.... Why are so many interesting in such odd setups to their trailering???? I travel across the US from Michigan to Maryland to Las Vegas to Tucson to Florida every year pretty much. I have a Dmax and a 36' Jayco TT. I am wondering just how many of you really need or want items like 55 gallon diesel tanks, or worry about MPG or a reasonable speed to travel at. Unless you spend weeks and months on the road like we do annually then why would you sweat these items?? I am not a full timer but would guess our travels that takes several weeks never needed answers to these items listed above. I mean why sweat a 55 gallon fuel tank?? You only go out while on vacation a few weeks a year and your roan time is but a few days not weeks. Your speed is derived from knowing your set up and you experience again a few days on the road doesn't make you a hauler. I don't know but most inquires seem like not of much value to most. If you can't understand after all this time I doubt anyone will be able to explain satisfactorily

RE: New Titan tank

^Just kidding! Totally. Someone is bound to say that, though. Happens every time. Figured I'd just gt it out there before someone who actually thinks it's not a good upgrade speaks up. Congrats, ALL big pickups should come with big fuel tanks. You're right someone would've sooner or later. I've had my 50 gal in bed tank since 03. In the current truck that's 84 gals total which gives me quite a range. I've never understood the argument that it costs so much to fill. You're going to buy so many gals of fuel it's a matter of how many times you need to fill

RE: Extended tow bar

40 yrs ago when I was showing horses I had a 10 1/2' truck camper and pulled a 4 horse trailer. I had a 40" removable extension for the trailer tongue, it worked great. Sorry I don't have any pictures after all this time that show it

RE: Are 16" tires still common? South america.. And disk brakes

The tires.. I have a old chevy farm truck with numerous problems with almost new 16" Michelin tires I want to swap to my dodge diesel.. And also the fact I want to run eight identical tires all around and trailer rims don't come in 17". Thanks! Fist thing to check is the bolt pattern. I know you said they are both 8 lug but is the Dodge 6 1/2" pattern like the Chevy or is your Dodge newer with the metric pattern?

RE: Distant Drums in Camp Verde

We're staying a month and Dead Horse is 14 day limit. This will be our first time RVing in the area before we had a timeshare in Sedona that we have since gotten rid of. We've been going there since 99. For anyone who thinks a month might be too long it won't be our first time spending a month in the area. We especially enjoy all the hiking trails in the area and look forward to finding new ones around Camp Verde plus hiking our favorites around Sedona. Using Sedona as a base we've seen Grand Canyon, Canyon DeChelly, Quartzsite, Lake Havasu, Verde River train ride, Prescott and eating at The Palace, and Jerome. We're not newbees to the general area but certainly welcome suggestions

RE: How long do you drive/tow in a day?

I tell people I take after my maternal grandfather. He was a bus driver and when he went on vacation it was to see his son in L.A. In the 50's grandpa would drive his 49 Studebaker from Kalamazoo Mi. to L.A. on old Rt. 66 in 3 days. Grandma always complained that he never stopped just drove. LOL Grandpa was not a slow Sunday kind of driver

RE: How long do you drive/tow in a day?

IMHO a lot depends on the vehicles comfort and capability, the drivers experience/confidence. Is the drive a white knuckle thing or a relaxed and enjoyable drive. A very capable vehicle vs a underpowered over loaded vehicle is night and day difference for pleasurable travel. Longest single day travel pulling about 750 mi longest no pulling just over 1200 and 19 hrs. That 1200 mi run I was 65 and traveling alone. I'm now 77
