      LarandSus We've stayed at KOA in Bernallilo. This fall we're going to try the town's Coronado Campground. It's cheaper and looks good enough.

      Jim & Sharon Ham There is also a great indoor carousel and telephone museum in Abilene behind the Eisenhower Museum.  There is an old-west cowboy town next to the museum that is mostly falling apart, but is free.  Eisenhower is closed right now for a lar...  more

      Birdie Many small towns have a lot of history. That was a state used to ‘pass through’ on the way west. Many small museums, lots of city RV parks with nice RV spots and very reason prices. You can travel across the top of KS going town to town and staying in the...  more

    Jstpeg & Bruce : When is the best time to make plans for a trip to Alaska? Do we need to make reservations a year in advance like in Florida or are they easier to get? We will probably be leaving from Kansas.

      Hank & Shirleen It wasn’t on a lottery in 2016 and we have heard no changes.  The Campground is Teklanika and is about 30 miles in. They stop you at about 15 miles in unless you have the campground reservations.  The only lottery we have heard about Is to be ab...  more

      Birdie It wasn’t on lottery when I went. It was reservation only. But if someone cancelled or was a no show you might get that spot. The shuttle was the best way to travel and see stuff. There were lots of hikers in most of the park. As the stupid folks did stup...  more

      Larnold0000 You can boondock a lot of places in Alaska.  We did so on the many pull outs - if there are 5 or more cars behind you, you have to pull out.  We also rented an RV close to the airport - nice units and great customer service.  It...  more

  • Jim -&karen collins
    Jim -&karen collins : Stick to the southern route, I-10 til you get to 17 north out of Jacksonville then head north along the coastal routes, 17- 13 , then it depends on where you want to go in New York, that way you will avoid the mountains and snow

      COmedlin (Steve & Karen) There is also a nice state park, Golden Gate Canyon, but they only have electric hookups and you cannot make reservations until 6 months prior to your arrival date.
