RE: Travel to Moab, Bryce, Zion from Durango

We just drove from Cortez to Green River, UT, via Moab on July 2, 2019. The road is fine--two lane with numerous passing lanes. Some road construction but that is happening is lots of places. We usually stop for lunch or a break at the city park in Monticello, Ut. It is an easy place to park--at the stop light, turn right on highway to Moab, park is on the right. Make a right turn and then another right turn and park along that side of the park. To depart, pull up to the next street, right turn to the light, then right turn to road to Moab. Others are correct, expect hot conditions--maybe Bryce will be a bit cooler in the AM. In Moab, we stay at the KOA. I will write another response after looking up RV parks near Bryce and Zion.

RE: Canyon de Chelly

About 10 years ago when we visited Canyon de Chelly, we opted to leave the RV at another RV Park (I don't remember where??) and stayed in the local motel. Worked great for us. And we have used that plan for other site visits that fit that situation--no available nearby RV Parks and we could visit with an overnight in a local motel. Hope you get to visit!

RE: Durango campground?

We stay at Blue Spruce RV Park near Lake Vallecito that is about 25 miles east of Durango. Good fishing in the lake and one other RV Park is on the Pine River that is also good fishing. Enjoy the area!

RE: North rim of Grand Canyon?

Last year we stayed in the Lodge at the North Rim for 2 nights and left the RV in Kanab. We travel with a 5 cubic foot freezer and need AC power to keep things frozen. We were there in mid September and it snowed. So the weather at that altitude and time of year can change hourly. This was our second trip to the North Rim and our 4th to the GC. We have enjoyed each trip.

RE: How is I-10E in Texas?

If you are west or north of El Paso to start your trip, I recommend 375 around El Paso to skip the I-10 section along the border--great road and not much traffic. Further east on I-10 is just a nice easy drive with rest stop scattered along the way for stops. Remember this is the desert of west Texas that I really enjoy--others may think something else. Enjoy the ride!

RE: texas hill country

Lots of good suggestions on visiting the Texas Hill Country. I live in San Antonio and the bluebonnets and many other colorful wildflowers are in full bloom NOW. The area is getting dry, so some rain in the next few weeks would help the flowers last. Locally I have not seen any reports on the wild flowers around Fredericksburg and further west of San Antonio. Hope you can make the trip and enjoy that part of Texas.

RE: Hwy 285 between Carlsbad, NM and Fort Stockton, TX

We stopped using 285 north from Ft. Stockton about 3 years ago after experiencing oil field traffic--those fellows are working for a pay check--I am retired and trying to enjoy life. So we go west on I-10 to Las Cruces and then north on I25 to Santa Fe and Colorado! If you go that route, use 375 around El Paso.

RE: Anybody at the grand canyon

The elevation is the issue along with low humidity to contribute to cold temps especially at night. Have a great trip.

RE: Santa Fe, NM RV Parks and To-Do's

Lots of great ideas. Our favorite park is Santa Fe Skies--easy to get to, nice walking trail, great sunsets, close to Santa Fe Brewery, nice pull thrus. But it can get windy--don't leave your awning out if you leave. There is a great walking tour of downtown Santa Fe run by the New Mexico Museum of Art. Lots of galleries, visit Bandalier NP, great bike trails, go to the Plaza, eat at local places like Cafe Pasquals and Tortilla Flats. If you play golf, the local golf course with a great par 3 is nice. We go to Santa Fe every year and will be back in September on our way back to San Antonio. Any questions, send me a message.

RE: Santa Fe to Taos to Great Sand Dunes NP

We drove east on US 64 from Tres Piedras to Taos last summer. The road is very bumpy--lots of patches and virutally no shoulder. But it is only about 27 miles so it can be one just be patient. US 85 north into CO was OK. We tow a 39 foot 5th wheel with 12 years of experience on the roads of the US and Canada.

Lockport, New York and Erie Canal 5. Thousand Islands area. 6. Wooden Boat Museum in Clayton, NY 7. Kentucky Burbon Trail 8. Churchill Downs Tour 9. Chickamauga and Chattanooga Area 10. Vicksburge Battle Field and National Military Park Have a great trip!

RE: San Antonio

In Fredericksburg, the Museum of the Pacific War is one of the best military-history museums that I have seen. Even though we live about 70 miles to Fredericksburg, we have been to the Museum several times and seem to be able to find new information on each visit--and the local German food and beer is a plus.

RE: San Antonio

If you commute from Johnson City that is on US281 expect heavy traffic to downtown from early am to mid morning and again the reverse in the afternoon starting around 3PM. Since most of the places of interest are in the center of the city(Alamo, Riverwalk, El Mercado) and south of downtown (Missions, bike trails), IMO I recommend staying closer to downtown. I live here so I don't have much experience in picking an appropriate RV Park. Have a great trip.

RE: RV Park in or close to Seguin, Texas

IMO, heading west from Seguin on I-10 early in the morning will put you in heavy traffic in San Antonio. Recommend a 9AM start for a more pleasant drive thru SA. Have a great trip.

RE: San Antonio to El Paso

While we start in San Antonio, we drive I-10 to Las Cruces, NM in our annual western trip. I find the road very good and traffic is not an issue. Good RV parks along the route include Boerne, Kerrville, Ft. Stockton, Van Horn, and Las Cruces. Also the roadside parks are spaced about 2 hours of driving time apart so stops are nice. As others have said, use 375 to drive around El Paso. For specific park recommendations, send me a email.

RE: Dallas to Port Aransas

Lots of great advice on DFW area. We usually use US281 from San Antonio to Denton to visit Gkids. Getting thru San Antonio is largely dependent on timing. Driving thru town after 9:30AM and before 3:30PM will avoid heaviest traffic. Routing to Port A routing--good advice. I like the SPID route that skips the ferry-that allows you to skip the ferry waiting lines. Have a great trip!

RE: Good place for base camp at 4 corners

Lots of great ideas! Suggest that you plan on staying in 2 or 3 campgrounds so you can see the area that is close to them. Such as Cortez for Mesa Verde, and Bluff, Ut for western areas to visit. We have visited the area many times on our travels and always find interesting stuff to see and do. So, have a great trip!

RE: Spring trip to New Mexico?

I have been going to NM since I was 3--about 68 years ago. I don't remember much from the earlier trips to Los Alamos, Santa Fe, etc but I do remember the later ones. We still go to Santa Fe every summer--usually twice and always find something new to do. In 2018 it was Canyon Road art galleries. Next year it will be the botanical gardens and probably more. Also great food. One suggestion is not to try and drive to everything--that can eat up a lot of time and $$. After a few summers in NM, then head to Utah--5 National Parks will keep you busy.

RE: Summer tip up thru MI, WI and Mn

In 2015 we traveled to MN, UP, and Mich. in late July to the end of September. No bug problems and great scenery and places to visit. We stayed in Munising and traveled around that part of the UP, stayed in Traverse City, MI, for 3 weeks and visiting the National Parks along Lake Michigan as well as other spots in the area. Also great bicycle trails in MN and MI. Enjoyed salmon fishing near Traverse City. Enjoy the area and expect some rain. Try to go to Interlochen Arts center for a performance while in Traverse City.

RE: Trip Planning software for PCs is extinct

I have both Topo and 2015 Street Atlas from DeLorme. A real downer that nothing even close has been offered by anyone. I did see something for about $650! Out of my price range. Also the GPS antenna may also be a rare find!
