RE: Socorro, NM campground

there is an rv park at the southern end of Socorro, but it has been several years since we stayed there. at the time, it was clean and quiet, a good overnight stop. we've also stayed at the BLM campground over near Carrizozo, and it is VERY nice, with water and dump and elec and the town close by if you want a cafe.

RE: Casper wy to yellowsrone

both good roads. the only thing to watch for is an early snow fall when you're crossing the pass on either road.

RE: Camping Lights

I prefer the dark, but I do like a small ground light to mark my door and steps, because it's hard to see sometimes.

RE: Yellowstone Trip

if you have time, take a day drive out of Cody and drive the Chief Joseph scenic highway up to Bear Tooth Pass and down to Red Lodge MT and back to Cody. Great drive!!!! not for pulling a trailer or motorhome! Cody to Ten Sleep to Buffalo and 90 on to Devil's tower. Crossing on 16 is the easiest of the three routes, but not a piece of cake, either. Going up out of Ten Sleep is not a hard climb. Going down to Buffalo is a lonnnnng descent, so watch your brakes. Other than that, it's a gorgeous drive, and there is water and a dump station up near the top of the pass.

RE: Towing 5th Wheel from IL to PHX in March

the area to watch the weather forecast is from Illinois to Albuquerque. After that, pretty much clear and sunny. but even I 10 can get a snow/sleet storm between El Paso and Benson, AZ, so just pay attention to the weather news. If you see it coming on the weather radar of your phone, stop at a rest stop or in a town, etc and let it pass over you. We ran into a heck of a sleet storm in west texas several years ago out by Van Horn. We just spent an extra day in an interstate rest stop.

RE: Pets and National Parks

we have a Lhasa Apso. For half days, we take him or leave him in the rv, depending on where/what we're going to do. for all day...6/7 hours, we take him along and leave him in the car with windows cracked a bit...IF it is COOL outside and we can find a shade tree. But we don't take long hikes, etc....too old and creaky for that. The bottom line is; when you get a dog or cat, you should expect a few lifestyle changes. Or, you can find a good local kennel at home and leave them there.

RE: Big Bend National Park

At Big Bend, just a couple miles west of the park, at Terlingua, is the Big Bend RV park. Not fancy, but good for water and elec and close to the park.

RE: Hwy 20 from Grand Teton NP to Casper Wyoming

you can take 26 from Moran Junction to Riverton and then up to Shoshoni to 20 and on to Casper from there. There's a mountain pass east of Moran Junction, but nothing scary. About what you'll cross going east out of Yellowstone Park.

RE: Yellowstone Questions

I don't know if there are any cabins at Fishing Bridge. There are lots of them just down the road at the Lake Hotel. There are some at Old Faithful Lodge area. The Lake Hotel is only two miles from Fishing Bridge, so it's fairly central on the east side of the Park. West Yellowstone has lots of motels and will probably be your best bet. As stated, it's right on the edge of the Park and 14 miles from the junction that will take you north and around the loop to Fishing Bridge, or south and around the loop past Old Faithful to Lake Hotel and Fishing Bridge. There is a middle road between the north and south loops, so you can take two days to see the north loop and two days to see the south loop. We like to plan on lunch or dinner at Old Faithful and watch the geyser go off before or after we eat...about 1 hour between eruptions. I recommend a tour of Old Faithful Lodge and one or two of the visitor centers...Mammoth at the north end for sure. Take binoculars. you will be glad you did. Cell phone service is not so good, but you can get good service up at the top of Mt.Washburn. I recommend also that you fly into Jackson, rent the car there, and drive through Teton National park on your way to Yellowstone. The Tetons are unforgettable!

RE: Best route from Merced Ca to Mesa Az

we use the 58 to needles, 95 down to I-10 and straight on to PHX. They have turned 60 into a pretty good traffic carrier east of I-10. If you just want an overnight parking place, the junction at 58 and 395 has a big parking lot just east of the light on the right. we've stayed there, but it's busy with trucks.. and we've stayed at Barstow at the Flying J which is a mile south of the I 15 and 58 junction.

RE: Mice and soap

we use the peppermint on cotton balls, but this past september, we caught two of the little buggers with glue traps. so nothing works perfectly.

RE: toilet treatment for black water tank

we treat ours with cheap liquid detergent and borax, a couple cups of each. we use it to treat the gray water too. start with a couple gallons of water in the tanks. it works very well. we frequently go as long as 10 days before dumping.
