We went to Alaska in 2014 in our 40' motorhome. We took a month to get there (traveling up the east side of the Canadian Rockies), spent two months exploring Alaska, and then took another month to return to the US via the Cassiar Hwy. Wonderful trip. Thinking of doing it again. 8^) -- jc&bev
Here's a tip we can share with you about our Alaska trip back in 2014. We timed our travels so that we ended up in Palmer for the State Fair. It worked out great for us and we enjoyed the fair very much. There is a campground near the fair grounds that we made reservations with to ensure that we had a place to stay while visiting the fair and that it was within walking distance of the entrance to the fair. It is called Town & Country RV Park. It cost us $100 for 4 nights. There were hookups, but I don't remember specifics. <>
Why that private park instead of the SKP park? -- jc
Back in Feb '18 we changed our Verizon plan to participate in some sort of FMCA deal. I forget the details now, but it included a newer version of the JetPack for $1. Apparently that $1 was not the full price. Just the other day I converted our post-pay plan to the pre-pay plan in order to get the unlimited data. Today I received a bill from Verizon for $133 to cover the balance of the value of the upgraded JetPack. Apparently we had been put on a two year contract with that FMCA deal (something I was not aware of) so now they want the balance of the value of the JetPack because we 'cancelled' our contract to go pre-paid. I called about it and am currently disputing that charge because we didn't stop being customers, we just changed how we pay. I'll let you know how that goes... -- jcw3rd
That's what we just did. 8^) -- jc
Your description of that lake reminded me of Crater Lake. I don't know your travel plans, but if you intend to eventually head south I recommend you schedule a visit to Crater Lake if you've never been there. It's one of the wonders of the world, IMHO. 8^)
Yep, enjoyed following along. 8^)
So, you neglected to finish the story. Did you partake? 8^)
Yea, I second that vote for Safety-T-Plus stabilizers. Makes our 40' MH much easier to steer. -- jc
I looked around, here and at their site, and I couldn't locate a price anywhere. How much? -- jc
Ahhh, that brings back fond memories of our skydiving days. Bev has over 100 jumps and I'm just north of 500. Loved that sport! -- jc&bev
Well, we'll try and keep track of your travels in hopes of hooking up with you guys. We just had a traffic accident (no one seriously hurt) and so the rig is going to be in the shop for a month being repaired here in Bakersfield, CA. We hope to hit the road again by the first of July, headed for Rapid City, SD. From there we head to the headwaters of the Mississippi where we will join the Great River Road for our trip down the Mississippi River to New Orleans. Hope to cross paths with you maybe in SD? -- jc&bev
Hi H&L, Two questions. First, where are you headed in such a hurry? And how long is your new rig? Bev and I have been talking about downsizing, now that we purchased a new home in San Miguel de Allende, MX. thx... -- jc&bev
Personally, I prefer our setup because our inverter can be placed in ‘standby mode’ so if we loose shore power the inverter steps in and continues to provide power so that my desktop computer does not crash. Also, since our AC units are not powered through the inverter we don’t have to worry about overloading the inverter or discharging the batteries too quickly if we suddenly loose shore power. I think you are going to tire of this setup of yours, what with having to remember to set everything in the right ‘state’ manually for things to work properly. I see a redesign in your future down the road one day. 8^}
Why do you have to register your MH before you can register your car? Is that a state (FL) requirement or just your personal preference? -- jc
A bit too fast for these old eyes... -- jcw3rd
Our RVing days are coming to an end also. Maybe one or at most two more years. We have purchased a home in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. We love it down here ( we are currently on a brief visit to furnish our new home). We hope you can come down for a visit one of these days... -- jc&Bev
Just wanted to share with you our favorite RV park in Pahrump. It used to be called Terrible's Lakeside RV Resort, but it has changed hands and is now just called Lakeside RV Resort. It is a Good Sam park. It also used to be a Passport America park, but I don't know if it still is. Here's the URL: It is such a pretty park. If you get a chance, drive by and check it out. Maybe you'll stay there next time. I know we will. 8^) -- jc&bev
Well, I'm glad you posted it. I found it an interesting read. Also, I did not know about their data plan. And I've been a member since day one. I will be looking into that. thx... -- jc
Happy Holidays you two! -- jc&bev

Wow. The photos over there are just STUNNING. —jc
I sent you a private email a few days ago about volunteering at your next rally. Did you get that email? -- jc
That's SO funny. We made an offer on a house yesterday too! I'll send you a pic in email. -- jc&bev

So sorry to hear about this trouble you are experiencing with your beloved rig. But I'm heartened by your attitude. That's the way you deal with a crisis. I expect you are an inspiration to all who read this posting. Best of luck. Chin up! -- jc
One day this will all be a memory. 8^)
