RE: Camping Safety

Everyone is pissed off. A lot of people have a form of PTSD from Covid and politics. There is a lot more drug use, lots of alcoholism. Metal health treatment is still taboo in this country. This makes for a greater percentage of dangerous people. Sleeping in an RV adds a layer of protection not found in a tent or just rolling out in the sagebrush. I use caution is deciding where and how I am going to sleep. I like to meet my neighbors in a campground or out boondocking. I never sleep at rest areas or parking lots.

RE: Diesel fuel prices … how is that affecting your RV travel ?

I don't go as far, but I go just as often. More often even. I don't always take my trailer in good weather.

RE: Best itinerary for Alaska

You can drive all of the paved roads in the State easily in less than a week. There are so many places to camp it is hard to pick one. You will have a lot of daylight. It is easy, just get out and wander around. Plan to be self sufficient. Meet the people. I like road houses.

RE: TC and MPG

Won't be much better especially in the wind. I have been driving a Ford 7.3 diesel for the last 20 years. I added an AFE air cleaner, 4 inch exhaust and an SCT tuner. Best mpg is 23.8 mpg.

RE: Decreasing supply of Diesel Fuel and DEF Fluid

Take shorter trips. Don't stop going out there.

RE: 3.42 gears for TC

New diesels have a lot of power. The 3.42 is designed to match up with the 10 speed. You can haul 15,000 pounds easily.

RE: I am the truck killer!

Good Fords from 2002 have no spark plugs. Try a different brand. Do more maintenance. Get serious about it. Have a skilled person watch how you drive. Hopefully these ideas will help your luck.

RE: Travel Trailer Towing Recommendations

Two or three vehicles.

RE: Travel Trailer Towing Recommendations

The safe bet is a 3/4 ton pick up. They don't cost much more than a 1/2 ton or SUV. I don't understand the resistance to buying one.

RE: Yuma

Yuma is an interesting place. My time there was spent with people mostly over 80 having a great time. Luaus, two piece bathing suits, golf carts with flames and mag wheels. Not my scene, but people were having fun.

RE: Dentist in Mexico

Lots of good dentists in Mexico and many other places. Go on vacation to a nice place and get your teeth fixed.

RE: Travel Trailer Towing Recommendations

Retired, Your choices are a little light for your current trailer. They have shorter wheel bases. What happens if you get a slightly larger trailer or get off the main highways?

RE: New Jersey to California

I made the same trip for the first time in 1969 from Maryland. Everything is brand new. You can't make a mistake and you can't see it all in 40 years. Relax and have a good time.

RE: Dog food

Pet nutrition has advanced rapidly in the last 10 years. We feed a lot of chicken, some vegetables, and some quality kibble underneath. My last Border Collie could still run at 16 when she passed. We lost our Corgi at 17 1/2. Food matters when it comes to dogs.

RE: Cummins 6.7L Gasoline Engine in a Ram?

Diesel technology is superior. That is why Dodge is coming up with this idea to use different kinds of fuel. When EVs become popular and gas engines are fading, diesel engines will remain popular because of their versatility, long life and innovation.

RE: Be careful with engine block heaters

Why would anyone use a block heater in Reno? Because it is going to snow next week. May 9-13.

RE: Camping Courtesies

Yes. Good comments. Be considerate. I like to play some music around 5:00, but I only play quieter music and ask permission first if anyone is nearby. Most people like it and ask for more music. Last month I was camping in the woods near home. On the second day a large flat bed truck showed up with Texas plates. I went over to meet the new neighbors, a guy and his wife. He was planning to do some mechanical work on the truck in order to get it home. I asked if he was spending the night. He said yes. I asked if he needed any blankets. He said no. After while I was cooking dinner, and my neighbor came by and asked "Do you need any help?" Few people have ever asked me that question while camping in 70 years. The guy and his wife happened to be originally from Mexico. Helping others is a part of their culture.

RE: What % Of Alcohol Does Your State Have?

States or regions that do not meet EPA air quality guidelines normally have fuel with some Ethanol added during the smogiest time of year. In Nevada that means November to April will have 15% ethanol added to the fuel. The law was recently changed.

RE: Your Favorite Boondocking Pics

Nice pics TravelinDog. I have retired from hunting now, but miss being out there in the fall. I really like the Rubies, Jarbidge, Schell Creek and Toiyabe Ranges.
