  1. San Francisco International Airport

    Thank you Obedb, another great advice from you! Jocelynn W Power
  2. Palisades, Co to Rio Rancho, NM

    Thank you Obedb, I will look into your options. Yes, my husband has driven thru many mountains and we've been all over the states... but we need our 2004 Concord Coachmen to last many more years and not take it thru rough areas, if possible!! Safe travels! Jocelynn W Power
  3. San Francisco International Airport

    Thank you to Mesaloose! That is just the answer I was looking for! I will look up that shopping center. As for Walmarts, I had already researched that option and there are non nearby. The days before we're staying at a c/g one hour south and after the airport we're going N to Napa and didn't want to go S one hour, again. So, thanks and happy travels! Jocelynn W Power
  4. On our trip West this summer, we will be going from Palisades, CO to Rio Rancho, NM. Google map gives us three routes. 1) The shortest is straight South thru Silverton and Durango, does anyone know if it is okay to go thru those mountains in a 28' class C with tow? 2) The second option is 40 min longer, to go a little West towards Moab, UT and Cortes, CO. One time we went thru Colorado mountains we were "caught" in a Pass. It was dirt only and everything rattled in the RV! Not again!! Thank you, Jocelynn and Oscar Power Gainesville, FL
  5. We will be driving thru San Francisco, but will have to stop at the airport to pick up our son. We have a 28' class C with tow. Would anyone know if we can go with the motorhome into arrival areas of the airport, or are there low clearance sites? If we should leave the motorhome outside and go in the tow car, would anyone know if there is a Walmart, Cracker Barrel or shopping center nearby, where we can park the RV while we go p/u our son? Thank you, Jocelynn and Oscar Power Gainesville, FL
  6. Tacoma-Seattle Area Campgrounds

    Need recommendation for a campground in the Tacoma-Seattle area. NOT KOA, please, that is too expensive. We have a 28' RV with tow and will need to set a 2 person tent for my son and wife, beside our RV. I have researched Passport A and Good Sam...not too many nice options. We plan to stay for a week tourist-ing the area mid August. Hopefully something less than one hour from downtown. Thanks!! Jocelynn and Oscar Power Gainesville, FL
  7. California, Oregon, Washington Late Summer Trip

    Thank you kaypsmith, we do have the senior pass and most of the time use NPks, too.
  8. California, Oregon, Washington Late Summer Trip

    Thank you to all of you! Very good advice. Don't know how to reply individually.... :-( I will save these with my notes! Wish I could start in WA and go south, but unfortunately my son's vacations are mainly in July (and he wants CA), where in Puerto Rico they have holidays on the 4, 17, 25 and 27th, plus the regular 2 wk vacation time at his place of work... nice!

  9. Hello! We are in the preliminary stage of planning our late summer (July, August, Sept) trip to the West. From FL going to California, Oregon, WA, Idaho, etc. We have a 28' RV with tow. My son, his wife and daughter will drive with us, but sleep in tents. Mainly interested in: (1) your opinion on how many days are recommended to see Joshua, Sequoia, Kings, Yosemite...(any others worthwile?) It will be a "driving around/sightseeing" trip, since my husband does not do hiking. Have CA fires affected them? (2) What (not too expensive) campgrounds are recommended. I noticed most National do not have showers. We are members or several c/g groups such as Passport A. (3) Besides the parks, we plan to go to Napa wineries, PCH and San Francisco.... (4) On Oregon and Washington, same questions of where to go, days needed and routes. We are retired, have no time limits (Thank you Lord!! ) but do have limits on budget.... Thank you for your help!

  10. Campground Discounts for FMCA members

    Good to know, thanks! Might try it on my way home (FL) next month!
  11. Lubec, Maine Campground

    Looking for Moose, we reserved for 3 nights, paid 2 and stayed 1 at the Sunset Point RV Park up in the Moosehead Lake area of North Maine. Our campsite was very spacious with a white sand beach 10 steps from the motorhome. The view was fantastic, the water cool but not cold. Bathrooms nice and clean. If you look for a place to be peaceful to relax is perfect. Owners very nice and acomodating. However....... there is no wifi, cable, local tv or phone signals (although I received an email from them). There are hundreds of mosquitoes or "noseum" bugs, that not even a fogger would disperse them. There is no laundry. We paid for W and E hookup, however, the electricity is available only at certain times during the day or night...they said they had to recharge batteries for their freezers. Obviously the camp is in the middle of nowhere. What also really disturbed my husband, was that to go there, you had to drive 34 miles on a gravel road with logger trucks rushing by. You cannot imagine the dust we had everywhere and the "rattling" of everything inside the motorhome. Driving slow or fast, it was the same. Definitely the next time I book a reservation, I will be looking into the details or small print describing the place and ask more questions! No more surprises! Live and learn.....

  12. Swan Bay Resort in Alexandria Bay NY

    Hello! I know you sent me a message, but somehow I deleted. Yes, we have reservations for the weekend of September 16th and the site is 20 W V. Our friends from FL stayed there last month and highly recommended the campground! Jocelynn W. Power 28' Concord Coachmen w tow Gainesville, FL
  13. When we planned our 3-month New England trip, we stocked our RV with some wine and liquor. Once here, we would like to visit NB. We have no plans on buying more, however, what would customs do on our way back to US with what we have on board? Obviously we no longer have receipts. Does anyone know?
  14. Mt. Desert Island, Maine/Acadia NP CG

    So here we are...we made it this year! And we are staying at Bass Harbor c/G, a few steps from the lighthouse, for one week. One issue we had was that although the cable hookup was offered when we reserved and available, when we went to complain, the lady at the office said "oh, down there (site 333) it has never worked...: hmmm why then.......??? Then another lady offered to give us a discount or change sites but three days later, as the c/ground is full. Since anyway the first 3 days we would be out all day, we chose the latter and were transferred to #327 with full cable and Wifi. We do have a tow car, but those that don't have one: LLBean sponsors free shuttle buses that go around the island continously. Thank you Linrosin for suggesting Bass Harbor.... and Willdebill308: we did bring the passports and will spend labor day wkd at Campobello park!!
