    Looking for Canadian info

    By ferry to where? Vancouver? Seattle? And again: how many days will you have for your drive (from where) to the north? Driving time, whatever route you'll take, from Vancouver to Chicken will be at least 40 hours, means 9 - 10 days driving, hands on wheels, almost no time for stopping and...

    Looking for Canadian info

    No, if you only drive through, without sightseeing, no detour, you don't need a park-pass. How many days will you have and where to Alaska will you go. We drove almost all that roads through B.C. and Alasko so often, everytime with a Truck-camper. So maybe I can answer some question. And sorry...

    Driving Class C in Yellowstone from Canyon Village to Tower-Roosevelt OR Chief Joseph Highway from Cody to Tower Junction

    No, we had no problems. In my opinion the roads are wide enough for 2 cars/RV's coming against each other. We in Europe are used to much narrower roads. 😀

    Driving Class C in Yellowstone from Canyon Village to Tower-Roosevelt OR Chief Joseph Highway from Cody to Tower Junction

    Last time as we where there (just before Covid hit), we drove the upper circle in an 28 ft. C-Class-RV, all the way from Mammoth Hot Springs, Tower Jkt., Dunraven Pass, all the view points on North Rim Drive, and back via Norris Bassin. Yes, the road sometimes is narrow, but it was not a problem...

    Is This My Bad?

    Andy Douglass wrote: ""in this case it looks like the entire park is only open to self-contained RVs, which effectively gates out people who can't afford expensive rigs.

    Is This My Bad?

    I think the reason is that an RV needs a bit more space as the parking lot for cars for tent-camping. The cars are about 5 - 6 meter, but an RV is at least 7 meter or more. And even the mentioned Yellowstone Nationalpark has places for tent camping.

    Water Locations

    ""Others bring bottle water supply and consume that and use the tank water for other usages.""" That's us. As we always drive with a rental RV we never know what the former renter did into the watertank. So we never drink this water, we use it only for shower and dishwashing. For cooking and...

    British Columbia mainland coast northward

    As I just read "Hyder/Seward": There is a beautiful boondocking up the road at the parking-lot and viewpoint to Salmon Glacier. You'll have this view: https://www.tripadvisor.de/Attraction_Review-g31017-d628259-Reviews-Salmon_Glacier-Hyder_Alaska.html As we drove it (3-times) the road was very...

    British Columbia mainland coast northward

    Yes, there is some crownsland, but very scarce. And many of them are not reachable by car, not to speak with a boat towing. I'm very activ in a special forum for Canada and BC. And from there I know that people in BC tent to be very angry about boondocking. So you have to be carefully with...

    British Columbia mainland coast northward

    We travelled BC about 8 or 10 times, always with a rental RV, always 4 - 6 weeks. But only in the low season, not in July. Because in July it is much to crowded for us and we don't like prebooking all campsites in advance. If you have questions, I try to answer. Beate

    Wandering from Tennessee to Alaska

    As for the Milepost: yes, it is suggested to have it, but for us it always was much too heavy. But I found a good website with almost the same information: https://www.bellsalaska.com/# You can print only the pages you'll need

    Wandering from Tennessee to Alaska

    We drove all the Alaska Hwy, the Robert Campbell Hwy., TOW Hwy, but also the Dempster Hwy to Inuvik, and about all possible roads in NWT (Great Slave Lake and on to Whitehorse), Yukon and Alaska. We always had a rented Truck-Camper with 4x4. For us the scenery got more and more interesting the...

    Anyone heading to Baja?

    Hahaha, I know such roads very well, we travelled there about 30 years ago, but with a small group and overnight in Hotels. But if we go again we want to travel alone, with a 4x4-camper and staying overnight somewhere in the wild. And therefore I'm a bit afraid of encounter by chance a group of...

    Anyone heading to Baja?

    We wanted to do it for years now, but always hesitatet because we read such a lot of drug crime there. And as we always would stay in the wild we are a bit nervous not to come by chance between the lines of two enemy ganges. What do you think about these?

    Small RV Rental midwest ?

    Do you really recommend Cruise America? In my opinion this is the worst RV-Rental-company of America. Ok, if you are lucky and get a new RV it would work. But most of their RV's are older ones, they hold their RV's longer as every reliable rental-company. And if you get some problems, they will...
