  1. Hello everybody. New to this forum and Escapees, trying to find out more details on the Escapade in Rock Springs. I see people are already registering, and I can't find where to do that! Any help will be appreciated! Thanks!
  2. Thanks everybody for the replies.
  3. New to the club and looking for details to plan our Jan. 2021 trip to Quartzite. We were wondering if the Escapees gather together to camp on the BLM land. Having never been there, we thought it would be fun (and wise) to camp with others who know the ropes. Any guidance, info., etc. will be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
  4. Thank you so much to everybody. I knew there would be a wealth of info here!
  5. Thanks everybody!. I appreciate all the replies.
  6. Looking for some experienced advice, and I'm pretty sure this is where to get it. Here's the scenario: there are 2 of us- my wife and myself- we have 43 gal. of fresh water, 76 gal. grey water capacity, and 38 gal. black water holding tanks. We drink bottled water. We can take GI showers every 2-3 days, we have 2 gennies for power when needed, plenty of gas for them, we don't watch much TV, maybe a movie once in a while, but we do have satellite. Don't use the micro, and do most of our cooking outdoors on camp stoves or BBQs. Fridge can run on propane; same with water heater. 2 20 gal. propane
  7. ^^^ Wow, AW AL- there's your answer. Pretty much sums it up.
  8. Marc- we've spoken before via email. You go to all the places I want to go to! Lots of them I've been to in Utah years ago. I just wanted to tell you about our trip back in the 70s out to the west desert just like you guys went to! We went to Ibapah, if I remember correctly, and then just turned west and headed straight out into the desert. No road, no nothing. Three trucks- one with a camper to serve as our cookhouse, and two more just for us to ride in. We slept in sleeping bags. We went to Fish Springs, but I can't remember if that was before we headed into nowhere or after. I think before.
  9. Eegads man! They are trying to have a little fun here!
  10. Yeah Kirk. Everybody loves them. Except me. Personally, just a bunch of hype. Over-priced and not really any better than the cheapie that came with my RV. I'm seriously considering putting the old one back on.
  11. Twenty foot trailer? Pick any one you want. They're all good. Of course you're going to get biased opinions.
  12. I just replaced my tires on my RAM pickup. I have less than 11K miles on the truck. The stock tires were Firestone Transforce. Biggest pieces of crap ever made. Worse than China bombs. I believe they were some kind of highway tread and I just hated them. Already worn out. Back to Cooper tires. They are some kind of off-road type tire but not too aggressive. Good enough for the four-wheeling I do, but like I said, not too extreme. 10 ply sidewalls. Haven't really noticed any difference in the ride; seems to be okay and not noisy at all. 60lbs. in the front and 80lbs. in the back per my tire guy
  13. Wow. Haven't been to the Outpost since the 60's when I had an aunt that slung hash there. Really surprised to see it's still open.
  14. Strafford and Camping World- neither one is on Hwy. 60. They are on Interstate 44. And no. There is nothing interesting between Springfield and Sikeston.
  15. Trust me. If they let me in, you have no worries. I've always been of the thought that just getting out there is the important part. Homemade or top-of-the-line, it's just fun to camp!
  16. I guess I don't get this guy or don't understand. I thought the OP wanted to record while traveling, thus the in-motion satellite setup. Why do you insist that shouldn't be done? I just don't get what you're talking about. But I don't have 30 plus years in computer technology.
  17. Darn it! Stuck at Buffalo Point campground on the famous Buffalo River that week.
  18. 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.
  19. 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 a
  20. This is the greatest thread in the history of on-line forums!
  21. 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.
