RV and camping resource page/document/ depository

Recommended Posts

The Oliver forum continues to be a valuable resource to me on a vast array of topics. As I was reviewing the number of applications, web sites, and such that I have bookmarked to help find "camping" and other RV related topics, I wondered if I was missing some = I'm sure I am.

 

I queried the forum and found a good deal of suggestions scattered around in many posts, but not any centrally located spot. The wise folks out there know that you use one reservation system for federal parks, another for some state parks, and many other sites for - well almost anything.

 

My question, would it make sense to have a topic page - or whatever is correct- that would put all these resources in one location. (Perhaps it's already there, and I haven't found it).  I am sure the new Oliver owners would benefit, as would I.

 

Thanks in advance for your input,

 

RB

This is a great idea, but there needs to be a new sub-forum for a small number of these special FAQ Sticky threads. Because Search is so dumb, it makes sense to have these FAQ type threads locked into one special place by a moderator, not floating around lost among the day to day topics. That way new visitors could have a lot of valuable info in one location. It would sure save a lot of repetitive conversation.

 

I LOVE this navigation app, but while it works on a phone, no worries, it is much more useable and easier to read on an iPad or other small tablet. The ability to add and blend multiple layers is extra useful. For anyone who parks their Ollie and heads back into the poorly mapped back country with zero cell coverage, this is a must.

Route 2 through Nebraska

 

I asked for campgrounds for traveling through Nebraska's Route 2 (a famous Blue Highway, that get's you off the interstate)  This is what they said:

 

"Nebraska city has anRV. camp as does Lincoln, grand island, Ravenna, broken Bow, halsey, Mullen, alliance, and hemingford and of course fort robinson."

 

Might come in handy at some point, just wanted to share. I asked for better content..but, you take what you can get. Maybe less traffic for it :)
