RE: Road closure (detour) questions

take I 435 up to I 29, then exit onto highway 92 and take that east all the way to I 35. It's a two lane road, but we use it every year with our rig.

RE: I10 Fl. to Ca.

Between San Antonio, TX and Tucson, AZ, there will be a possibility of brief snow/sleet storms that are usually fast moving but make for slick roads for a day or so. Just pay attention to weather reports. you will probably sail right through with no trouble at all.

RE: Camping in Nebraska

Chadron State Park, 9 miles south of Chadron, on 385, is a really nice little state park. as stated, highway 2 is more scenic. At Halsey, there is the Nebraska State Forest Nursery and there is camping there. But be aware that highway 2 is on a main train line with trains running all night long. :) We like overnighting at Sidney because it has a walmart and cabelas. and cabelas has a nice rv park.

RE: Moki Dugway, Should I try it?

NO! the road is narrow and there are overhanging cliffs along the way so you can't hug the inside as close as you would like to.

RE: Dry camping on the way from page to Las Vegas

If you turn off on 64 and go through the Grand Canyon Park and exit out the south gate, you will find national forest land with dry camping just outside the gate.

RE: Blue Beacon Truck Wash

we have used blue beacon etc many times. the one that is most convenient for us is in central AZ, on I 10, near the I 8 junction. they will wash your toad, too...or not, according to your choice.

RE: Best Southern Fried Chicken Batter

this sounds like a good batter recipe, but I like mine better: 1 regular can of beer and 1 1/2 Cups flour...let it sit for at least one hour. Add some seasoning, salt, garlic powder, etc, if you want. you can dip anything into this batter and it's GOOD. :)

RE: I-44 North of Wichita Falls TX

From my map, it looks like US 70 is where the Toll Road begins. So get off at the exit there.

RE: How about some common courtesy...

guess we are just lucky. The last time I recall listening to a loud genny was a few years ago when we were camped at a national park campground and the owner did pay attention to quiet hours time. as to using them all day....the only time we use ours all day is when it is hot and we need the a/c. but we have some solar panels on top, so they take care of phone charging and tv and even a little crock pot.

RE: Chisos Basin, Big Bend

Big Bend has several dispersed camping sites that hold one or two campsites and are just out of sight of the road...but the roads can be rough if it has rained and then not graded, so check them and their condition out at the Visitor Center. We liked Hammond Draw, about a mile from the visitor center.

RE: Yellowstone: Cody to Gardiner

there are several NF campgrounds between Cody and Yellowstone. Two of them will hold you just fine. Rex Hale is one and has some elec hookups. There's another one just west of Wapiti, and I think it's name is Wapiti..on the right side of the road, going west. rex hale is further west and on the left.

RE: Chaco canyon NP in NM ?'s

don't take your RV down that road. Stay in Farmington and drive down in your toad. as stated, it's washboard, about 18 miles of it and no's ROUGH. but do go, because it's worth the effort.

RE: Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstine around July 4

get your reservations NOW, or just after the 4th this year. For Yellowstone, I like Bridge Bay for it's location and it has water and a dump station and is very close to Lake Lodge (for buffet dining) and Fishing Bridge for store. When you go to Old Faithful, go late morning, around 11am and stay for lunch or have lunch at Snow Lodge, then see the geyser. For the Black Hills, get reservations EARLY in Custer State Park. It's a really beautiful state park, has elec hookups, water and a dump station and some very scenic drives. For campgrounds, we like Game Lodge campground and Legion Lake.

RE: How do you begin to plan for extended road trips?

when we first started, 20+ years ago, we bought a used MH because we didn't want to get too deep until we knew it was a good choice of travel for both of us. A few years later, we bought a good used diesel MH and still have it. So our first trips: how long did we want to stay out and then what did we want to see or do? I like to use an old fashioned Atlas from Walmart to "map out" the wheres and which roads. Then I looked for overnight places to stay...some rv parks and some state parks or fair grounds, and some city parks. and walmarts. For our destinations, a reserved spot is nice to have until you get used to "winging it" we used to put in long we pull out around 10a.m. and stop around 4p.m. for the popular places like yellowstone or grand canyon, you need to get reservations as early as you can...6 months is not too long, a year is best if you're picky about time. our walmart stayovers are timed for when we need to resupply. Now days, I tell DH where I want to go and he tells Garmin. :)

RE: Black Hills in October

yes, autumn colors will be showing well at the last of sept, first of oct. if you can get into custer gulch, grab it, or any rv park in the custer to hill city area. be advised that the area can see some snow the first of oct.. usually just a brief cold spell that doesn't last more than a couple days.

RE: Roads south from Rapid City

385 is one of our preferred routes from SD to TX. but it is not a super highway. we like the little towns..most of them have a park or fairgrounds, etc that you can use. We take highway 50 east at Granada CO and go over to Garden City KS and highway 83 south into TX. We stay overnight at Canadian TX at a little fairground rv park on the north side of town just past the bridge. water and a dump station. then on south to Shamrock when you cross I 40. There are walmarts at Garden City and Liberal KS.
