RE: Salt Lake to Elkhart, IA Travel Advice

The problem I have with U.S. 30 is all the traffic lights, low speed limits in many areas, plus the many business drives and cross streets. Not at all conducive for a half way relaxing drive any more than stuck in a traffic jam is. I did it with a car years ago and when I got back on in Joliet there was a very distinctive semi that I'd been seeing when I was in a traffic jam up on 80 and here he was at the same time I was tooling right along. So I can't see using U.S. 30 as any better

RE: Salt Lake to Elkhart, IA Travel Advice

You can never be sure about traffic around Chicago. If you hit it right you can, without towing, keep up with traffic and buzz through at 70 mph plus. If possible I like to go through late at night or early in the morning. I go through there towing 2-6 times a year and have seldom had stop and go traffic

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

https://i.imgur.com/MmnGkgYl.jpg]https://i.imgur.com/MmnGkgYl.jpgparkowner, you must be a poodle owner. If so then you must know that the "standard" refers to size nothing else. Myself and many others consider the Goldendoodle to be the epitome of the two breeds. Low to zero shed, smart and easy to train, athletic, super social and great companions. As far as size ours is 65-70 lbs so he's never mistaken for a horse, but he sure looks different after his swim. Also he keeps our groomer employed as he goes every 4-5 weeksTo quote a nursery rhyme "if you don't have a whole poodle, a half-a-poodle will do. If you don't have a Half-a-poodle God bless you!" I guess that means you fall into the "typical poodle owner" category. If you read what I said again you'll find I didn't degrade poodles. What ever dog makes you happy is the right one. I wanted a Doberman but my wife wanted a dog that wouldn't possibly scare our young grandchildren, the youngest was 3 at the time or other people. As you can tell she got it. I don't regret it as we couldn't have gotten a better suited dog for us and our travels. It's funny when we have been in campgrounds for a few days we have run into people who upon seeing our dog have said "Oh this must be Max we've heard so much about him" That's the kind of good impression he makes on people that they tell others about him

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

We have a 4yr old Goldendoodle. The day got him he was 9 wks old. His ride home that day was 100 mi. He has always loved riding and going places, including the vets. He has ridden as much as 800 mi in a day without a problem whether in the back seat of my wifes car or our crew cab. He's not a yappy dog and would lick you to death before anything else

RE: Tow Vehicle Question

Trailers I seen advertised for rent around here are placed on site by the owners not the renter. You might check with your insurance to see if it would be covered when rented

I measured ours sitting empty right after buying it, then put that on the backside of the drivers visor

RE: snowbirding

No way would we be going into Florida other than the panhandle Why not? We're planning on snowbirding in Florida this coming winter. I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on why Florida is bad? Personal preference.

snowbirding

We are thinking of going south for a month this coming Feb. This would be our first time other than just passing through.We are looking for recommendations for a park but not the resort type. The following states are where we are thinking. Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and possibly the Florida panhandle. Also if near water the wife is concerned about our dog near alligators. Has anyone experienced any problem with them. I've tried reassuring her there wouldn't be as he'd be on a leash but of course I'm not speaking from experience

RE: Truck Caps

Since having the 5th wheel I use a roll-up tonneau cover for the summer and a topper for the winter. To make taking off and putting the topper on easier I made a cart that is the same height as the truck bed rails. Then I can do both on and off by myself by using 2 or 3 pieces of 1/2" or 3/4" pipe set under the topper and simply roll it on or off that way. Beats the heck out of getting enough help to lift it off

RE: Bargan at the Beach!

When we were out there last month just north of Newport I paid $2.49 for diesel. The next lowest price was Sams Club in Billings Mt. Our trip was just over 7500 mi and I lucked out and never paid over $2.92. Using Gas Buddy and having a 50 gal in bed tank is a big help in taking advantage of lower prices when possible

RE: Dogs that dont bark at people

Great idea. We've been walking our dog in a campground and met people who've said "this must be Max" Someone has told them about the friendly Golden Doodle https://i.imgur.com/pYI07fel.jpg

RE: Horse campers

I didn't see them walking the horses to the restroom, so I can imagine the site was well-drenched in urine. I hope the statement of walking them to the restroom was tongue in cheek

RE: Lewis Clark Memorial Highway

We were there last month. Did 84 until Bridge Of The Gods because we wanted to see the different falls on the Or. side. We traveled 14 until U.S. 97 at Maryhill SP as we wanted to go to Pendelton. Good roads and scenery on both sides

RE: Dogs

Dogs on a lease can also be an issue when trying to walk on narrow trails. Dogs can inflict a lot of damage and they even kill people now and then. Those of us who have been attacked a few times get nervous. Imagine being on the trail and seeing someone with a handgun. You might be nervous even if it was in a holster. On a narrow trail it isn't the dogs fault it reflects on the owners lack of courtesy and ignorance of training the dog. When we are hiking and encounter others I instruct my dog to get to the side of the trail and sit until the others are past You state you've been attacked by a dog a few times. What exactly in your mind is a dog attack? Bitten or just rushed at? Your statement about a gun makes me wonder if you're anti-gun otherwise why be nervous seeing it in a holster? If out of the holster get out of there if possible

RE: 10 days in Michigan

MDOT shows M120 closed just North of Giles, until August 31 That's northbound only and it's just the stretch between Giles and N. Getty. There's a detour that takes you maybe 2 mi out of the way continuing on Giles to N Getty and back to M-120.

RE: Gas stations

Well I guess I'll be stepping on some toes. If you can't manage your rig to fuel up maybe you need, A. a shorter rig, B. lessons in maneuvering, C. motel it instead of RVing. When I'm on the road with my car hauler I'm a tad over 60 ft, with the 5er it's 50 ft and have never been unable to fuel up where I choose. I very seldom fuel up at truck stops because generally they are higher priced. Also I've already towed over 12K since mid April this year. Are all places easy? No as someone else said I've also had on occasion needed to back out.

RE: Gas stations

7 yrs FTng...traveling all over the USA on secondary/back roads fueling up at every Mom/Pop, Co-OP, 2 pump, Multi-pump stations in all kinds of small towns. Had to back out of a couple but so what....got fuel They got fuel == I need fuel -- I'm going to get fueled. Simple Been in tighter/harder to maneuver CGs then any service station. Go to a large parking lot and Practice maneuvering you truck/trailer. You hit the nail on the head with this
