I for one don’t understand why more (all) funds collected from timber, mining, grazing etc on public lands isn’t pumped back into the backlog of pubic land upkeep/ improvements. And after the land has been polluted/raped of value they are allowed to walk away and let us, the public, pay for the cleanup. Something is wrong in this picture. Currently we pay many ways, where is the responsibility…….!

After reading that gasoline prices would be $2.78 from April to Sept you can imagine my surprise when I read your weekly gasoline price of $2.86. Obviously someone isn’t paying attention.

“Gasoline prices will average $2.78 a gallon from April to September in the U.S.”

Still plenty of time for them to get to that average once they go above $3.50 per gallon.

Can the CARB story be updated please. I think I saw something about the bill had died in committee.

That must have been one hell of a party. I read about that one. As for the safety of the motorhome RV? They should be built like school buses. Tanks. They survive almost anything. Except head on with a semi. But that I have not seen yet. This is why I tow not drive one of those things. As for Mesa Verde? That was my mothers bucket list and she saw sadly before she passed. That out west trip was awesome. I also tell people get a campsite and their docent tour. Awesome. We got a FHU there 9 months before arriving because they only have 20 FHU sites. So go and have an awesome time. Anything west of the Mississippi I have done. Now to explore the eastern seaboard. Happy camping. And O BTW? This day in history?

RV park closures in towns: there will be more of these as accidents happen and the few inconsiderates ruin it for everyone. But in the end, money talks. Every RVer is someone who is not staying in a hotel or bed & breakfast. Small towns away from freeways will continue to open more small overnight lots (think maybe 5 spots in a city park). Towns nearer the freeway may not want RVers driving through town or taking up precious space on their waterfront property, but they’ll tolerate RV parks on the edge of town near the freeway, like near the chain hotels. Maybe not the most scenic, but it gets you a spot for a night or two.

Dump Buddy, for when you want a $40 solution to a problem that a simple brick will cure. Considering most dump stations are just a hole, there’s no way to attach this. Most FHU sites have a threaded pipe, so you just screw in your (Camco) elbow adapter which isn’t going to pop out. Sorry Dump Buddy, you have a $40 solution that’s not right for most situations.

$50 after paying for shipping. Not worth it. I’ll just use duct tape.

agreed. Most sites I’ve been to the dump hole is flush with the ground.

Is it possible to have a page devoted to listing places that are non-friendly to RVers (and friendly ones)? Then the first one I would nominate is Crested Butte, Colorado for their crazy answer (and crazy councilwoman) to why they would close a perfectly good dump station.

Speeding RVers: tell me that the locals NEVER speed. And tell me that the locals don’t own any RVs, driving through neighborhoods to get back home, or use the dump facilities.

No proofreaders? Dictionary.com not working for you?

“Repellers” = rappellers
“Brew-ha-ha” = brouhaha

Come on, RV Travel. You’re better than this. Typos happen to everyone with a keyboard, but spell-check isn’t faultless. These two likely would have passed unnoticed by the spell-bot. Sometimes phonetics and/or millennial-abbrevospeak just make you look uneducated, careless, or maybe just rushed…staring down a rapidly approaching deadline…..?

Hi, Connie. Thank you. They’ve been corrected. (Although I liked the writer’s version of “brew-ha-ha” better than the correct spelling. 😆 ) Yep, in a hurry. Those slightly registered in my brain when I saw them, but not enough to follow up on them, unfortunately. I don’t use/trust spellchecker, and I hardly qualify for “millennial-abbrevospeak” – being 74! 😯 But I do like that term. Do you have any idea of how many hundreds of typos I correct every week? I worked for an attorney for 40+ years. Very rarely (maybe once or twice a year) he would catch a typo of mine, and he would say that he was happy to see one because it proved I was human. Have a great day! 😀 —Diane (the human proofreader) at RVtravel.com

Definition of a riot: three nutritionists asked to agree on healthy food choices. Honestly! One I read said that butter is little more than solidified grease, not for eating. Another said butter is loaded with unhealthy artery-clogging substances; and yet a third now claims that butter comprises an amazing variety of fatty-acid compounds beneficial to good health. So… pick any answer you like. According to some authority somewhere, you’ll be right!

Moderation seems to be key. A serving of food fried in a little butter is probably far more harmful to one’s imagination than it is to one’s health.

““The hardest thing about being a tourist town is the impacts of tourism,” said Mayor Jim Schmidt”

A good friend years ago told me that the printing business (he owned a print shop) was “the greatest business in the world… except for the (censored) customers!”

It seems the current attitude in the U.S. concerning RV overnight parking and campgrounds is, “stay away but send your money!”

As hordes of RV’ers multiply and the size of a typical RV approaches the length of an 18-wheeler, triple-wide with slide-outs, expect the backlash to worsen. Gone are the days of the unassuming family tent or the compact two-wheel Spam-can trailer. Our town, on a popular tourist island, wiped out a municipal 40-site RV park after public hearings convinced city leaders it was unloved, unwanted, and in the way of more useful developments. Wrong-headed? Maybe… but few these days have affection for over-size RV traffic.
