  1. I've gotten a dozen or so emails like this (photo attached) since I subscribed to one forum a couple of months ago. I'm hesitant to click on the link included so I just delete them instead. Additionally, lately, almost every post that appears through a search in the forum results in a "page not found" or 404 error.

  3. Change of plans! We've hired Painted Cowboy Transport to haul our Ollie halfway to Oregon. We'll meet him at Cherry Creek State Park in Aurora CO on July 24 and take a few days to get familiar with #488 before embarking on a month long camping trip through Colorado. Phil at OTT will do a FaceTime orientation and walkthrough with us on July 3. We're very relieved to avoid the long drive to Tennessee and back considering the weather, humidity and holiday.
  4. Another round of great suggestions <thank you> Mike and Carol: Nice to have another vote for Red Rock --- the photos are intriguing and it may be a perfect spot for a few days. We will be watching the weather for floods, twisters, wild fire, high temps and humidity which will inform our route northwest. Spike: Flagstaff is a great idea -- we're usually in the southwest during Oct/Nov and then again in Jan/Feb when Flag tends to be too cold to camp. Now that we'll have a rig with proper heat and cooling we just might incorporate northern AZ. SeaDawg: We were thinking of northern NM for this trip (Santa Fe, Taos, Carson NF) then continuing on to Colorado. Or heading to the Tetons or Wind River Range in Wyoming then continuing on through Ketchum or thereabouts. We have the whole month of July to wander about, so keeping track of weather and smoke is very much on our radar. We've found that we can't depend on past weather trends to plan a route. We've been able to be very spur-of-the-moment with our camper van over the past 4 years, but traveling by Ollie may need more forethought than we're used to!
  5. Thank you all for the suggestions! John: It looks like Red Rock Canyon State Park is now privately owned, and renamed to Red Rock Canyon Adventure Park (https://www.redrockcanyonadventurepark.com/). Depending on how far we decide to travel in a day, that looks like an interesting option. WhatDa: We didn't have much choice in the pick up date (July 3) but a call to Oliver TT this morning left us feeling a relieved. A skeleton crew will be working on July 5 if we need a repair. Plus, worst case scenario, we will be able to park at the sales office if we need to wait until Monday the 8th. Luckily, my husband is handy, logical and resourceful ;-) Mossemi: Your HH suggestion was timely and prompted me to get a membership. There are some intriguing locations scattered along the way that look like wonderful possibilities, especially for a short overnight stay without having to unhitch. Much appreciated. Overland: KOA is a good option, thank you. I usually don't look for KOAs using my online searches, but it's good to know they're plentiful along I-40. We'll be fine as soon as we get solidly "west" (New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming etc.) as we are used to boondocking and exploring in that area. We're just not used to having to plan so far ahead and make reservations. We usually just move with the weather and have learned to show up early if we need to score a spot at a developed campground. Many thanks~ Chris and David
  6. We're picking up our Ollie (hull #488) on July 3 after a fast 4-day, 36 hour drive from Oregon. It just occurred to us that we may be running into full campgrounds, dodgy weather and recent flooding as we make our way west for the return trip. So far we've got reservations at Davey Crockett SP July 3 and Natchez Trace SP and July 4 to make sure all Ollie systems are checked out before we leave Tennessee. We're unfamiliar with camping in Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas and are concerned about the recent flooding and storms that may have knocked out many campgrounds. Does anyone have suggestions on where to camp en route? We're shooting for spending a few weeks in Northern New Mexico/Southern Colorado before returning to Oregon. What kind of daily mileage do you recommend for someone new to towing? Many thanks, ahead of time, for your advice.
