Unknown National Cavern outside Cody

I'll bet you never heard of Shoshone Cavern National Monument aka Spirit Mt. A cavern right outside Cody that is gated and locked with no entrance to the public. I had never heard of it before but PPA put up an article about former National Parks and included this one. Cody paper According to that article you can get in by getting a permit froim the BLM and paying a key deposit

RE: Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper, Alberta

I assume you know about the border closure no sign of it opening so far. And check for campground closings, I know some major ones were closed up there. Otherwise 3 days at each should be fine.

RE: Paperwork

Depending on how long you'll be traveling you may want to have copies of your birth and marriage certificates. Passports too

RE: Paperwork

I saw that inspection and it was obviously an arranged demo of what a state inspector does on a Semi Truck. Surely you've seen them on the side of the road inspecting a semi they pulled over, usually with a portable scale too. Not something they do on RV's. Tho I could see it happening on an obviously and visibly defective RV in very rare occasions Anyway we have a safe under the bed and keep vaious paperwork in that. If you get one make sure it's not one that can be opened by jamming a Bic pen barrel in the lock.

RE: Wifi access while on the road near Savannah, GA?

Many not all Home Depot and Lowes have free WIFI, fast food restaurants claim to but I found them to be very unreliable. Especially for high bandwidth. Florida rest stops have WIFI I don't know about GA. No hotspot on your phones? That is the best.

RE: camping outlook 2021

I have seen a few reports of people trashing FS camps in one case. But when I look at the location they are always near a city, Phoenix in that example. Once again we saw no overcrowding in the heartland free states. We did end up in an overflow area in our one night in New Mexico right at Raton Pass. Very hostile park workers too. My hypothesis is that this over crowding is concentrated in: 1) States that closed State Park camping 2) Limited private park camping, I hear NM allows only 40% occupancy for example. So those places have created their own problems. I saw one state claiming that they were closing state park camping because of limited funds. Probably caused by having no income from those campgrounds. Here is our path so you can see where we were: Summer 2020 trip

RE: camping outlook 2021

FL state parks are booked up for the foreseeable future. Being an open state has impacted availability for a lot of parks Florida State parks are almost always booked solid, especially those near a coast. Nothing new there. They haven't been ranked number one in that nation for no reason

RE: camping outlook 2021

It's possible that the capacity restrictions were not strictly for social distancing, but to lessen the number of people visiting the area in order to reduce the possible strain on local resources such as medical facilities, or on the campgrounds themselves. That makes no sense the number of people travelling is way down so visitor demands on local resources is reduced. There is zero logic behind all of these draconian measures. It's pure power grabbing. NM BTW has reduced private park capacity to 40% from the last thing I heard.

RE: Tennessee state parks

We stayed at Cumberland Mt last summer, yes you need a reservation. You check in at the office and there is no gate. A bit too crowded but still nice park overall

RE: Excellent video on brake repacking

I thought his small cardboard box scheme was lame... In the SE garages mainly occur in these new mini-mansion subdivisions. Most folks living out on acreage don't have one tho some have a pole barn. And pole barns often have dirt floors.

RE: Excellent video on brake repacking

I guess a garage is required up there in the frozen north, not so down here in the southern states.

RE: mass elec. storage 'battery' rethink the term application.

Not clear what the point of all this is. Yeah it's another emoters vs Thinkers thread that will be endless and go nowhere.

Too much Jane Fonda for you piano. Tell why do you think nuke plants are dangerous in the US?

RE: Excellent video on brake repacking

I sure wouldn't be doing that job in that environment, I'd be working on concrete Well some of us don't have a concrete pad, you know Rural America? I do use a much larger piece of cardboard under the wheel tho.

RE: mass elec. storage 'battery' rethink the term application.

All of these pie in the sky suggestions has major drawbacks. Just build nuke plants in the first place, save fossil fuel for petrochem and transportation

Excellent video on brake repacking

OK I stumbled on this video and this guy has the most comprehensive trailer drum brake repacking video that I have ever seen. I learned a lot from watching this and only wish that I had seen it before I did all four wheels earlier this year. He even shows a tool that allows you to set the brakes from the inside: Brake Setting Gauge Anyway take a look at this, I see he has an earlier vidio on redoing the suspension too that I have not watched yet.

RE: Gmail Reverted to Portuguese

Reverted to Portuguese? Was it set that way before? Did you check the settings. And restart the browser aand if that doesn't work use the frequent cure, a reboot.

RE: Blue Ridge Parkway - Early April

Those low tunnels are strange, it seems like the height on the sign going one way is different on the sign on the other side of the same tunnel coming back.
