RE: Trip Report: New Mexico Atomic History

NM is an interesting place. Did you make it to Los Alamos?

RE: Trip to Yosemite

Adjust your thinking. Approaching Yosemite from the East is difficult, high and windy with big drop offs. The Pass often opens in June, closes by Nov 1. Your plan makes some sense, to stay outside the Park and commute, especially if you want hookups. Yosemite is loved to death. May is a good time to be there, just approach it from the West.

RE: Calculated MPG

A few mods made it possible. AFE air intake, 4 inch exhaust and an SCE tuner. Not snake oil. Simple improvements and careful driving. Measured by filling up the tank, driving 400 miles and filling up the tank again to do the calculations.

RE: Calculated MPG

Keeping track of mileage has changed my style of driving. Now I am more of a hyper-miler and slow down ahead of time and don't accelerate that hard. Use cruise control when it is safe. That is how I got to 23.8 mpg in a one ton Ford diesel.

RE: Which old motorhome to buy

There was a time when I thought an old bus would be just the thing for traveling. Then I realized that a tire for a bus might cost $500 if you can find one. Then I realized not every auto parts store has parts for a 1958 Bluebird. Old motor homes lose value quickly. I would find a late model unit like 2000 or newer if possible.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

The problem is lack of supply. Where are the 2022 models?

RE: winter camping advice

Plenty of people live in them full time in cold climates, but it takes some experience. Good skirting with insulation, electric tape on plumbing lines. Do some reading about people that do it all the time. It can be done.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

My first pickemup cost $3350 a Chevy Luv 2wd 50 years ago. 2002 Ford one ton 7.3 cost $35k. It is worth around $20k. Next truck will be a an F-250 XL diesel but it will be awhile.
