RE: New Member introduction

Welcome, Tom!

RE: Maybe getting a longer trailer

Whangler, I think you'll be all right. We went from a 25' hybrid to a 34' TT and had a 90 degree angle into our driveway from a road probably about the size you have. It took a lot of getting used to, and a lot of tries, but fortunately I never put it in the ditch (we had a ditch about 4' deep and 8' wide alongside the road), and we had some very patient neighbors. 27' to 31' isn't a huge difference; just take it slow. Good luck!

RE: Long route travel plans

I'm a planner, and I don't like having to "make do" in a case when no CGs would be available. In the fall, that's a special consideration on the route you're thinking of, since many CGs that far north will have closed by October, certainly by the end of October. Anyway, given those 2 points, I would be starting to plan - especially pinning down the general route - about now, a year or so ahead, and looking to making reservations in places like national & state parks, other popular tourist areas, and on weekends, between 6 and 8 months ahead (many state parks allow that much advance time for reservations, and usually fill up pretty much right away - especially these days, with RVing so popular.) That's just how I'd handle it. (Since you asked. :) )

RE: Idaho & Montana Trip

Idaho's Sawtooth Mts are well worth the stop, as is Craters of the Moon Nat'l Monument, if you haven't been there. (That's more south-central Idaho, but perhaps could be on your route.) The McCall area of Idaho is gorgeous! Camping in/near the Sawtooths is pretty much no-hookup; we've looked at a couple of CGs in/near Stanley with hookups and were not impressed. However, there's a dandy little RV park with water & electric hookups in between Stanley & Challis, called Torrey's. It's on the Salmon River in a canyon (little to no phone service or wifi). Beautiful spot and a good base camp for a few days from which to visit both Stanley & Challis, plus some old gold mining ghost towns and the gold dredge. With no big trees, this CG would fit your rig well. Only about a dozen sites, so reservations advised. We haven't seen the private CGs in McCall, but if you can snag a site in the RV section of Ponderosa State Park, it's WELL worth visiting. Beautiful wooded CG on a lake, and the RV sites are all FHU, I believe, and just as pretty as the "regular" ones. It's extremely popular, so reservations well in advance are essential.

RE: Do you do this in the US?

I've seen it for weekend stays, but not so much in recent years. Could be we are staying in the wrong places for this - it's more prevalent in state parks and destination campgrounds, not so much in RV parks dominated by pullthrough sites and large RVs.

RE: Best route from Salt Lake City to Jackson, WY

24mileboy wrote: I-15 to Idaho falls, then hwy 26 to swan valley, past Palisades res to Alpine, then Alpine to Jackson! Mostly flat and good roads! Not sure if there is any construction going on, probably! This is a fast, good route. Good route and scores some scenic points too; 26 through Swan Valley and the Alpine-Jackson routes especially are beautiful!

RE: Idaho fires

Air quality varies from day to day; with the prevailing winds, we get a lot of smoke from fires in the Pacific coast states, as well as a bit from our own. Other than a big one in the wilderness area of central Idaho, we don't have as many/big fires as last year, I believe. Another month, still under drought conditions, though - who knows what it will be like? You're welcome to come - but there are no guarantees of clean air or open roads.

RE: Cody to Billings Help!

take 120 north to Bridger and then 310 on up to Billings. We have done that several times. No problems. Ditto. Have taken this route several times. Nice drive, no steep hills.

RE: Mammoth campground Yellowstone

It was a very recent change, so it's not a big surprise that you didn't know about it earlier. Sounds like they intend for it to be a permanent change - but of course, it never hurts to check periodically!
