RE: Washington State

If the weather is hot and dry just gain some elevation.

RE: Group Camping Food Planning Question

I really like cooking with Dutch Ovens on a fire for a group. It is a focal point of camp, and an interesting process. Sometimes the neighbors want to stop by and learn about it. It is possible to cook anything in a Dutch Oven. No power needed.

RE: Holiday snacks & appetizers

We just had a Christmas party last night. Meat and cheese plate, smoked salmon spread with crackers, artichoke dip. ranch dip with vegetables, etc. I l like the frozen appetizers from Trader Joe's like spanakopita, mushroom canapes, coconut shrimp. I had some makins for hot buttered rum and egg nog but no takers. I had some. Good Canadian whiskey, Stoly vodka, nice tequila, Dark Seal rum. They are your friends, serve some good stuff.

RE: Want to start an RV park...

I come from a real estate family. I have rental condos currently, and I am working on building a condo development in Oregon. Ignore the naysayers. There is money to be made in the RV park business. The one important thing to remember about an RV park is that you are really in the service business. Running it takes people that are service oriented, social people that enjoy helping others. It is not for everyone.

RE: Washington State

Most people tour around Washington for awhile visiting places there have heard about like the Olympic Peninsula and Mt Rainier. Then it occurs to a lot of them maybe they would like to get out of the rain and they head for the eastern Cascades.

RE: Washington State

Much of central Washington was formed by the Montana Glacier. This includes Dry Falls (Must see) which was something like seven times the size of Niagra. It changed the course of the Columbia River. Are you refering to the repeated floods from Lake Missoula?

RE: diesel class c

Experienced live aboard boat people seem to go smaller over time. Same with RVers with experience. Small is great for 2 people.

RE: Want to start an RV park...

Check zoning and building requirements early. In order to compete, I would build larger than average sites and charge more. Do you have a marketing plan? Do you have business background? Who is going to run it?

RE: Hwy 20 from Grand Teton NP to Casper Wyoming

Fine but look out for wildlife and domestic animals on the road. Sometimes there are whole herds of them.

RE: Yellowstone Questions

Stay in the park if you can. Then you go to sleep with the wildlife and wake up with them. I like to go during elk rut and listen to them bugle all night. I have been going since 1955. Last time out we pulled into our assigned campsite at Mammoth, and there were 38 elk standing there. Time to find a new campsite.

RE: Washington State

Make sure you spend some time in the eastern Cascades. I used to get tired of the rain and always spent a lot of time over there. There are plenty of great places on Nat For land outside the Parks.

RE: 4-Corners

I have been driving near it for 50 years and have never stopped there.

RE: Traveling Alone

My girl works a lot so I often go on trips alone. I have met some really great people including some nice women. Lately I have tried camping near home and inviting friends to join me for dinner. I have a fire going when they get there. The nights get long by about late October. Having some company is appreciated. Sometimes my girl will show up for a night if it is not too far from home. My Border Collie is a lot of company. Having a TT for the long nights is a great improvement compared to being stuck in a tent in the dark.

RE: Can my truck tow this?

About 95% of the time when someone asks a question like this they already know the answer. Use enough truck and be safe.

RE: Sleepless nights

Read a lot before you go to sleep. Do not look at anything electronic. The only electronic device I have in my RV is a radio. Find a quiet place to sleep. Pull down your shades. Have a comfortable bed. I added a mattress pad. Bring good bedding from home. I use over the counter sleep aids sometimes. I sleep better in my RV than any other place.

RE: Yellowstone 2020

I have been going since 1955. You will see the babies in the spring and avoid the worst of the crowds. People stop right in the middle of the road not at wildlife jams. The best plan is to camp in the Park so your commute is much shorter, especially driving a motor home. It would be a great idea to try a shuttle bus.

RE: Camping Suggtions for Baker City, Oregon area please

Salem is the drug capital of Oregon. Baker City is a nice place and very rural. It will give you no problems.
