RE: Full Hook-ups or no?

Many people think the quiet is boring. They miss their smart phones, TV, DVDs and only God knows what else. They like to live just like at home with different scenery. Many people are uncomfortable with their thoughts, conversation and all of that Nature. I am not one of them.

RE: Trouble with California

Get rid of your NY attitude as soon as possible. People doing their jobs protecting the gigantic ag industry. Learn to deal with westerners. Do not be so direct. Be friendly. Then they won't be tempted to inspect your rig.

RE: 6 gal electric hot water heater upgrade

Bad idea.

RE: Flagstaff to Flaming Gorge UT or Cody WY to Red Lodge MT

None of those roads are that hard. If you don't like windy and steep drop offs, stay out of the West.

RE: What is a good camp stove to buy now days?

I have used a lot of stoves over the years. I used Coleman for years, then had a lantern that was not good when new. I sent it to the factory and it is still junk. I like Brunton stoves. Stainless steel and very dependable.

RE: rough country Lift good or bad?

LIft kits are mostly for show. You make your truck more top heavy. It does not increase your ground clearance unless you add taller tires. Then the geometry of your drive train gets affected. The knee bone is connected to the thigh bone. I drove vehicles in the dirt during an outdoor career and they were nearly all stock. I had to walk out only once when I broke an axle.

RE: Yellowstone Trip

Sheridan, WY is one of the great western towns still in existence.

RE: North from Colorado to Mt Rushmore

You can drive out in the Plains by Sterling and go through Nebraska if you want, but staying in Wyoming is much more interesting. Driving thru Denver takes some time. Be there when it is not rush hour.

RE: enameled dutch ovens

I have an aluminum Dutch Oven that is very handy for traveling. I use it on boat trips and truck camping mostly. It has no legs so it works well on a camp stove. I have used it plenty of times on a fire like for baking a cake. Al does not transfer heat as well as iron, so be careful with the bottom heat.

RE: Chevy's I4 2.7 turbo engine

why buy a truck if it can't pull anything? Next they will try to sell you a 5 1/2 foot bed.

RE: Full Hook-ups or no?

Boondocking all the time. USFS campgrounds in the quiet season. RV parks when I need to empty and refill tanks and wash clothes and take a shower.

RE: North from Colorado to Mt Rushmore

Compared to the mountains, it is easy.

RE: Yellowstone Trip

The Bighorns are a little tougher route, but one of the great mountain ranges in America. Don't miss it.

RE: Yellowstone Trip

Yellowstone is mostly a large Plateau. The east gate route takes you through the Shoshone River Valley. My favorite place to see moose. No that hard, but you to keep your eyes on the road.

RE: Is Socializing a Dying Thing in the RV Community?

If RV socializing was a fading past time this thread would not have 10 pages of comments.

RE: Kings Canyon to Yosemite to Carson City

Canoe, Route 88 is my favorite way across, Highway 50 is fine. Tioga Pass road is direct, but windy and narrow and exposed. Route 49 is tight and up and down and wearing. It is fine in short stretches. The northern part is a little easier. Last year I went to Yosemite from near Carson City on Tioga Pass just before the snow, but I came home by going home on 49 to Route 88 which is easier. All routes are scenic, just avoid Route 4 over Ebbetts Pass.

RE: Planning a cross country trip - questions

YOur trailer will fit most places, although you may have to disconnect your truck sometimes. The main problems are the old USFS campgrounds that have not been upgraded. Some of those are lined with trees and awkward for larger trailers. YOu can always find an RV park.

RE: Pets and National Parks

One of the reasons I avoid parks are the rules regarding dogs. I travel solo a lot and my dog is the first line of defense. She has great hearing and a great nose often seeing predators before I do. She is well behaved. When I run into hikers and especially livestock, I take her off the trail and tell her to sit.

RE: 1 ton SRW debate

What debate? I have been driving a Ford one ton SRW since 2002 and it is the best vehicle I have ever had. Travel to find one. Have it shipped. There are plenty of trucks out there if you know where to look.

RE: Pets and National Parks

Most people visit a big park like Yellowstone mostly by car. Bring your dogs with you. Most of the hiking is short duration. You can let your dogs out anytime. I like the dirt roads in Yellowstone. Then you can get away from the crowds. There is no telling what might happen. I can understand why the NPS wants dogs on a leash, or not deep in the backcountry. But it makes no sense to allow them only in parking lots.
