  1. Is anyone thinking of not volunteering this year if the Parks open? We are scheduled to be in the National Forest next to Yellowstone but I do question people from all around the country if they come. There is no way they can control social distancing in the park they couldn't control people before. The park says they will have to clean more but they didn't have enough staff to clean before. Hate not to go the site we have is fantastic and Montana is a great place to spend a summer. Well just wondered what other volunteers are thinking.
  2. Just made a day off trip from our volunteering job in the forest to another forest so we could be out of the compound. We live in a class a but took our old class c for the trip and ran the generator for a/c. We pulled into our site and by the time we had the envelope filled out to pay we had a neighbor there that wanted to know if that was my generator. Now the old 83 generator is noisy but it was 6 o'clock in the afternoon and we had been there about 3 minutes. I told him I was shutting it down soon so he walked away. Quiet time was 10 pm to 6am . I'm an old man but that old man needs to mind his own business next time I'll shut it down at 9:59. Please leave your neighbors alone if they are within the rules I tell my campers that all the time.
  3. I would not recommend Spring Creek for HDT this time of year I just opened the c/g Sunday and the road is muddy in spots. A 40' HDT might be limited anytime of year in Spring Creek.
  4. I just saw your old post here about Spring Creek. We took the old class C and finished the season there three days a week. Bugs were bad then it got cold and no bugs. Loved the view . Nothing exciting happened around the lake the rest of the season . The fire was the king of the compound. Just signed new contract will start May 1st if snow let's us in,  right now the snow on the edge of the drive must be four ft high. Stop in if your near hope everything went well on your trip home.

  5. I see you fixed the miss in the V10 engine problem and the slide bushings the easy way.
  6. Tenters are not the only late arrivals that don't care about others. While hosting at Matagorda had a late arrival next to us that I know slammed his door at least a 1000 times while setting up. I believe people who care go to bed and set up in the morning. Had people with a pop top in Grand Prairie Canada came in late made all kinds of racket and let their kids go to the playground. Now tents are more work for a host in the National Forest because they will use your facilities more than rv people but I know they pay for the use (maybe). Young people who tent seem to think they shouldn't have to pay. But we keep going back for more fun working with the traveling public.
  7. Spell check got me on Camphost
  8. USACE needs a camphost at one of the Priest River campgrounds. This is a bid position posted on fedbizops. It will be available for bid till 5/3. The ranger listed is great to work with and is very helpful with bidding.
  9. I should have mentioned you need an appointment with them they are busy and you can sleep at their place plus plug in.
  10. H&W in Iowa they know what they are doing will do it right for a fair price. They made it they will fix it. Had a Winnebago dealer do 1 slide $500 1 year later H&W redid both slides less money.
  11. I hate the going rate most shops $100 -$125 per hour but I do like people who know the vehicle Ford. Not sure if dealers in El Paso can service a coach but if they can't they should be able to direct you to a good shop. If spark plugs need changing Ford knows what they are looking at and the risk.
  12. Make sure someone knows what they are doing if you try to change plugs.
  13. Man is 82 might not make it , jokes meth lab hope you had fun.
  14. Kevin , Ernie in Weatherford Tx is good and he is always busy. He does mostly engineered wood but told us he will do carpet. Look for on other rv sites. There is another guy in Tucson I think his name is Chuck you can find him on rv carpet sites.
  15. We did our own carpet renew. My wife picked out the products and I did the install. We chose Home Depot for carpet because they would order carpet with binding for slides and the sections that were bound shipped direct to us the rest picked up at store. We chose Lowe's for Smart Core flooring for galley living room. Project took about 1 month ordering and install. Ernie in Weatherford Tx. is really good for info and he will install engineered wood if you want that done. I had my had doubts wife doubted more but turned out better than I imagined. Bed slide was easier than I thought and dog house (engine cover) much easier than I thought. I bought a good stapler (Roberts) and is up for sale now. Are you volunteering at Foscue .If you are please say hello to Ann, Jason (he is one of the best vol. bosses we had) and Clint a vol. friend just tell them Otmer said hello.We might stop there in March on the way home.
