RE: North Rim Campground

There are some fantastic dispersed locations on USFS land near the North Rim. A few years ago we stayed at Saddle Mt Overlook, right on the edge of the canyon rim - don't be a sleepwalker! But be prepared for a dusty road out and back. We took our brand-new Lazy Daze out there and it was covered in red dust, inside and out. DW wasn't too happy. Other recommended spots are Crazy Jug Point and Indian Hollow.

RE: lobsters in Maine

In Freeport, Day's south of town or Harraseeket Lunch and Lobster. Both will be a tad less touristy. Both are counter service and picnic tables. X2 for Harraseeket But be aware that parking is very tight there - unless you're in a van or p/u camper, I would not take an RV there.

RE: What mapping software

I also use Streets & Trips 2013. Roads haven't changed much since 2013. Seriously? I use RV Trip Wizard for trip planning & a Garmin 760 for day-to-day navigation. As one that also still likes and uses S&T 2013, I can attest to the fact that the distance between destinations hasn't changed since it came out and the general routes still work fine for my planning needs. You sure must not travel much. Still using Windows 98? ;) BTW, RVTripWizard costs $39/year. Hardly a deal breaker. I'm still using S&T 13 - have no issues with it and it gets me where I want to go. We're pretty much two-laners, so a missing new on-ramp to an interstate is not a big deal. It's easy to trip-plan on and it runs on an old XP laptop that sits on our doghouse - nice big screen. Hooks to GPS puck on dash.

RE: Great Basin NP RV Camping

There are seven designated campgrounds in the park. One, however, Strawberry Creek, is closed UFN due to fire recovery efforts. Not mentioned by others is Lower Lehman Creek CG with 11 sites that can handle RV's If you're a tenter, there are some other options: Grey Cliffs CG has 10 tent-only sites for $15. It is located just south of park HQ on the road to Baker Creek CG. Further south in the park is Snake Creek CG with 12 free tent sites. There are also other dispersed sites along Forest Service Road 448 which parallels Snake Creek

RE: Winging it on your travels

Problems with such detailed planning for a trip: I have no desire to spend hours researching details of CG after CG. We hate to get pinned down to definite dates to be certain places. If we like a spot, we'll often extend our stay; if we don't like it, we move along after a day or two. We prefer small, out-of-the-way places and enjoy boondocking, so finding a spot is rarely a problem. A few years ago we did an 8-month trip around the US - from New England to FL to CA to WA to the UP and home. I can't tell you how many times we changed our plans and took off in a new direction. A lot of our changes came after talking to people we met along the way who suggested interesting places to visit. Semper Gumby is our travel motto.

RE: Any DIY dish mounts?

I made this simple mount using PVC pipe. Comes apart for storage and takes up very little space. Amazingly quick and easy to set up. It's very stable on uneven ground and in high winds. https://wxtoad.com/images/lazydaze/satellite_stand.jpg

RE: Warren Bridge CG south of GT/YNP Wyoming

Yes, it's a nice spot. There are also some dispersed sites along the river on the other side of the highway. Here are some pix.

RE: Disapointed with new Garmin

So my point is.....new, out of the box, it should be able to accurately fine old addresses and have adequate memory. Keep in mind that although you may have just purchased the unit, it probably has been sitting on shelves for some time - at the Garmin factory, the distribution center and the dealer. Thus it pays to update it fresh out of the box. Just as you need to do with a new computer.

RE: Natchez MS

We visited Natchez a few years ago and faced the same dilemma - how best to view the beauty of the town. DW and I decided to split up - she took one of the bus tours that stopped at various homes, while I chose to do my own walking tour.

RE: Natural Bridges Natl Monument motor home friendly?

We were there a few years ago with a 26' Class C and had no problems fitting into the sites. Like you, we didn't have a toad and were able to stop at the viewpoints and trailheads. Here are some pix and comments of the CG.

RE: MAINE Campgrounds

Lobster Buoy is one of our favorites. Also: Camden Hills State Park Winslow Memorial Park is just north of Portland in Freeport, home of LL Bean. If you want to spend some time Freeport visiting LL Bean and other shops, you can even park overnight in town.
