RE: The Trinity Site

Was stationed at The AF base in the early 60s and had a Range Pass and a blue vehicle. Visited ground 0 several times and picked up trinitite off the ground. The shallow depression was coated with it. The huge metal tube that was supposed to capture the uranium if the nuclear explosion did not work was still there but they never figured out how to get it to the top of the tower so it was not used. We had to wear radiation badges when we were on the range. Was back a few years ago and took the tour but the site is a lot different now. The other interesting place on the range was the Victoria Peak gold but that's another story we never saw any evidence of it. Visit the Museum in Alamogordo lots of interesting stuff to see.

RE: Apple tree harvesting / Deer in my yard

We have two apple trees in our yard and frequently have deer come in and eat the fruit. One morning we looked out and there were three coyotes eating the apples on the ground. I found out this is not uncommon.

RE: RV Parks near Crater Lake National Park

Collier is a nice park with large sites and even a stream to fish in. On the way up to Crater Lake, about an hour drive nice scenery, you can see eagles nesting.

RE: Rafter J-Bar / Custer / Rushmore

You will pass the Corn Palace very interesting place different every year, has RV parking, worth a couple hours, Also Badlands, can drive through, and Wall Drug kind of a tourist rap but has RV parking and worth a stop.

RE: River Walk cg in Coeur d'Alene

We stayed at Blackwell very nice campground with about everything but not cheap. Our friends stayed at River Edge and from what I saw very basic but close to everything so I guess it depends on your needs. If you want to stay a few miles about 10 out of town there are a couple of public campgrounds to choose from.

RE: Chaco canyon NP in NM ?'s

We stayed in the park - Yes it was rough going in BUT IF YOU TAKE IT EASY IT CAN BE DONE. there no hook up only a table, drinking water only at the small store. Need ant spray for sure. But well worth the effort. Campground is in the canyon near ancient ruins and when the sun goes down it is amazing. Not for wimps

RE: Great Basin NP RV Camping

We have been there several times - Great place few people, good cave tour, road art on the way in, and good hiking. unless things have changed, there were three campgrounds, a big one down below and two upper, after a steep climb. only a few pull ins.

RE: Oregon & Wash. bicycles and kayaks

If you plan on going through the Columbia River Gorge there are some great rivers both on OR and WA sides to use your Kayaks from the Dalles to Portland. Plenty of State and private campgrounds. Also the Old Highway on the OR side is good biking with water falls to visit.

RE: Canyon de Chelly

If you don't mind dry camping you might try Chaco Canyon in NM. We have visited most of the ancient sites and this is in our opinion the most impressive. Very rough slow drive in, from north or south route, never very crowded was a no reservations but plenty of room even for bigger rigs. A small store but only drinking water available Camp very close to the ruins. When the sun goes down the canyon becomes almost mystical. Unlike a lot of the others this one is largely untouched.

RE: Mt. Hood

We have stayed at Ainsworth many times one of our favorite campgrounds in the Columbia Gorge where I grew up. It used to be a no reservation campground but now takes reservations and does have some pull through big rig full service sites. The entrance is just off the 84 and need to make sure you don't get on the old highway which is not big rig friendly. Very close to Multnomah falls which has parking for RVs but is a left lane turn then a tunnel to walk to the visitor center. If you want to cross over the river to visit Beacon Rock don't use the Hood River bridge use the Bridge of the Gods. Never solved the Portland Traffic problem just put up with it no easy way from east to west. Lots to see and do in the gorge.

RE: Gatlinburg full hookup with heated pool.

We use Twin Creeks very convenient to Gatlinburg and park entrance. Has nice facilities, pool, store dog run, some large sites, on the trolley route and crafts route, wooded with deer and maybe a bear. Stores and restaurants close by.
