  1. Government shutdown: Are BLM Land Boondockers kicked out?

    Honestly- the fake press has got everybody in a tizzy. Have any of the other shutdowns ever affected you in any way whatsoever?!? They're not going to send anybody through the desert telling you you have to leave. It's nothing but a political thing; I know we're not supposed to discuss that, but it's that simple.
  2. Houseboat rental?

    Been there and ...you know what I mean. Several times. To me, it's the greatest place in the world to take a vacation. Don't go in summer or winter. Off-season the prices drop a little. At least they used to. Make sure you have a small boat to tourist around in. Used to be you had to make your reservations a year in advance; probably even longer out now. Do lots of research; there's a thousand different landscapes and things to see. And being the traveler I know you are- especially out West- there are hundreds of little canyons to hike and explore around the lake. But you don't want to be in any of those little canyons if there is any indication of a storm at all. You know why. Man, I hope you get to go. It is the greatest!
  3. Facebook

    This is the greatest thread in the history of on-line forums!
  4. DW wants an oven

    We love our NuWave oven!
  5. Gas or Diesel

    What do you mean where are you getting the numbers on a diesel? What- you think a diesel and gasser are the same price?!? Price 2 new trucks- one diesel and one gas. You don't think there's a price difference? And why would you tell me you can't run a diesel for any extended time at 85%? Eegads man- where you getting your info? And 15-20K a year is a lot for a truck? Isn't 12-15K a year about average? Mountain Home AR- regular is $2.24 a gallon; diesel is $2.29 a gal.
  6. Zion National Park (and boondocking nearby)

    Great thread and thanks for the info. I didn't realize there was dispersed camping in that area; can't wait to go and check out for ourselves!
  7. Best RV Generator?

    Oh, okay. Now I understand. A Honda knockoff. Little different than the real thing. Again, I'm sorry, but Champion is not the same as a Honda.
  8. Best RV Generator?

    I'm sorry- Are you saying the Champion uses the same motor and parts as the Honda?!? I don't think I believe that. Where did you ever get that information?!?

    If it's the Washington Post, I will not read it. Don't care what it's about.
  10. Type of Truck required to pull Travel Trailer

    If money is not your main concern, I urge you to listen to the above guys when it comes to truck size. Get yourself a 3/4 ton or better truck and the issue will never come up again...Our RV is sometimes advertised as 1/2 ton towable. Would I tow it with my 1/2 ton Chevy? Never.
  11. Grey Water Dumping

    Is it okay- or not- to dump grey water on the ground when you're boondocking in the middle of nowhere? Where we camp at locally, a state park, we can't even go a week without filling up the galley tank. And my wife tries hard to be conservative. I would never do it around other campers or in improved campgrounds, but just wondering about being somewhere by ourselves.
  12. russ buchanan

    You paid 2K a piece for them? Why?!?
  13. Necessary Tools to Carry

    Oh yeah, sure. You may be able to do that, not me. Torque wrench takes up no room. If you can do it just as good by feel, I'm getting the impression you have done this a lot.
  14. RAM truck Long bed or not.

    That's very interesting; I did not know that. Thank you.
