RE: Texas Hill Country Ideas

Great time to be in South Texas! For SA, I recommend staying in San Antonio for the visits to the Riverwalk, Missions, Market, Alamo, maybe even golf if you play. Others have given a good list of RV Parks--I would add Admirality near Sea World. For hill country, pick either Kerrville or Fredericksburg. In Kerrville, we like Buckhorn Lake RV Park. In Fredericksburg, visit the National Museum of the Pacific War, eat German sausage, and drive over to LBJ Ranch park. Maybe the wildflowers will be out but that is a bit iffy due to small amount of rain in the December-January period.

RE: North Rim Campground

We have visited the GC four times--twice to the north rim, once to the south rim and a 188 miles float trip on the Colorado River thru the GC. We do like the area! For the north rim, we took our 5th wheel and stayed at a FHU park about 1 mile south of Jacobs Lake and took AZ 67 down to the North Rim. We also drove our truck only on forest service roads in the area to the North Rim -- great ride. All our trips have been in the fall except for the float trip in August. The weather was great.

RE: A Primer on Moab

WOW! Great info! We travel thru and stay a few days in Moab virtually every summer/fall heading to SLC for the visit with Gkids. We enjoyed several of the interesting areas that were mentioned. Yes, Moab is Unique! But maybe to much of a good thing happened last summer--we paid $71/night for 1 night at KOA. Not really worth it for us since we have been many times to the area. I would recommend the local golf course is very playable. I read that either Utah or the Moab tourist group promoted visits to Moab last year--guess what???It worked! Expect crowds.

RE: Pine/Spruce drip season??

We have been going to Blue Spruce RV Park near Lake Vallecito for the past 6 years-stayed 9 week in 2019. We don't have much concern about pine sap--we arrive around mid July--maybe that is why. For the 2 drips on the truck, I used Rapid Remover--adhesive remover--works great. Have a great time!

RE: Grand Canyon 2020

Here is my experience at the GC. 1 trip to the South Rim for 4 days in September, very cool to cold evenings, nice days, great views, and nice ranger programs. That part of Arizona is tilted to the south-this is important because water falling on the south rim drains to the south with very little draining into the GC. So the South walls of the Canyon are steeper and less eroded than the north rim. In general the river is about 2 miles from the south rim and about 7 miles from the north rim. Different views for photography from both sides. For the North rim, we have visited 2 times--again both in September, much cooler, less crowds, but great viewing points that you can drive to. We have also floated 188 miles--6 days--thru the Grand Canyon. Still more great views but this time looking up. So, plan on more than 1 trip! Summary--1st trip go to the South Rim, 2nd trip go to North Rim, 3rd trip--FLOAT the Colorado River!

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.
