Websites >Neat-Fun-Info on camping others will enjoy

Postby sdtripper2 » Fri Oct 06, 2006 10:52 pm

Hello, All: :)

Lets play a game? :thumbsup:

The goal of this thread it to have a collective website database of fun travel
and camping routes and destinations along with anything that would help
your mind wrap around quality camping. The key here is to be creative and
share your favorite websites that a person could explore for a while and
get enjoyment from what the site has to offer there.

Let this thread be the sharing of websites that would help people enjoy their trailer?
It could be a specific driving trip & map like This trip through time in Utah?

Your sharing might include a destination in the USA. It could be the a
website that shows a specific travel trip that so stirred you to build, like this
Travelogue of a trip to Alaska (and back) that affected me strongly.
It could be the story or it could be some entertainment site you liked that
relates to camping? It could be a website say on "Chuck-Wagons" or some
other interest that could be tied into trailers or camping.

Maybe there is another forum or community online that reflects your
interests that has tied you to camping and they are like minded with the
people here?

It could be a gadget website that has all sorts of items you like to imagine
camping uses for?

I have listed a few more choices below to get the ball rolling.

Road Trip America
http://www.roadtripamerica.com/index.htm
http://www.roadtripamerica.com/mainmenu.htm
http://www.roadtripamerica.com/travelpl ... htm#events

American Road magazine
http://www.americanroadmagazine.com/

Boon-docking
Came across a website that has much info and a section on boon-docking
for the snow birds so to speak. Wanted to share with you just in case you
ever decide to plan a trip to the southwest during one of your winters.

There is a thriving community in Arizona and the California boarder run
along hwy 10 near Quartzite AZ and Blythe CA. Google them and you will
see. Phoenix as well as these places cater to retired people big time with
discounts galore.

Here are those links to Boon-docking & BLM Information:
http://www.boondockingguide.com/
http://telusplanet.net/public/waters/links.htm

Yahoo Group on Boondocking:
http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/boo ... locations/

The Complete Book of Boondock RVing
http://www.rvwheellife.com/?p=209
http://rvbookstore.com/shop/detail.aspx?m=2&p=1087

The idea here is to think and share and have fun:
"What have I seen on the web that is neat that
someone else here could benefit from relating to camping in some way?
"
.

Thank You in advance for playing the game: :eyebrows:

The Reserve USA site is like a bread an butter site
for many but it is good to point it out for those that
don't know of it.

Thanks for playing the game. :D

Dunno how I've missed ReserveUSA, but looks like exactly what I need. Glad to hear it's reputable (or at least the implication to that effect).

This is link to a camp ground we've been to several times.
http://www.oregonstateparks.org/park_146.php
But you can access all Oregon State camp grounds from there too.
While I'm at it, here's one for Washington.

http://wmuma.com/moped78/index.html

Herman and Cande Zapp did a 40,000 mile tour in a 1928 Graham-Paige touring car that will only do 35 MPH from Argentina to Alaska

http://www.hillmanimages.com/912/argentina-alaska.html

And then, In 1990 I rode a bicycle from Melbourne to Cambera to Sydney... down under. :)

(I had done some more looking into their adventure about a year ago, and here are radio excerpts)

Try this one: http://www.lakesuperiorcircletour.com/

I did it on a Honda CB360T with just a sleeping bag when I was 17. Plan on a couple of weeks and bring along your mosquito repellant.
