Default Back in the lower 48

We made it back into the lower 48 last nite,after a few months in Canada and Alaska,
It was getting late and we were looking for an RV park and the only thing nearby was "Beaver View RV park and Nudist Camp".
Carol said "forget about that" so we ended up in the rest area for the nite.
No nudist were seen here,but yesteday at the Ice fields in Canada we spotted 2 young girls bathing in a small pond,sans clothing.
Right beside the parking lot which was full of RVs.
The air temp was 40 degrees.

You guys know how i find humor in most everything?
Well,this summer was no exception.
We saw 2 5th wheel trailers that the owners were putting new Moreride rubber blocks in while on the road.
Maybe its Moryde or something?
Its a replacement for leaf springs,big rubber blocks,new axle and disc brakes.
They both loved them,but the rubber was bad in about 1200 miles and the brake pads were worn out and the tires on one of the 5vers were worn out.
All that in 1200 miles.
The tires were being replaced in a parking lot by a tire shop,the trailer was too big to get into their lot.
The tires were worn out,10 ply tires,so the owner was putting 16ply tires on (like they don't wear out)?
He had already had the axles aligned because of tire wear.
There was some simple psychics going on here that somebody was missing.


They both loved the ride,(they were riding in the fancy dually pickup),i have no idea how they knew the trailer was riding well?
The one guy was saying he had been on about 10 of those fancy caravans,with about 20 other coachs.
He loved to have people telling him where to be and when to be there.
The caravans cost about 10,000 bucks per copy.
I'm in the wrong business!!


When your way up north you see all kinds of camping contraptions.
Home made trailers and truck campers and hi/low trailers and lots of old stuff,that we don't see down in the humid south.
The class B campers are everywhere,lots of newer rigs,some converted by the rv builders and lots of them homebuilt,the homebuilt ones are "stealth" camping everywhere.
We stealth camped right beside them,we had our cloaking devices on!


The old 70's and 80's van conversions were everywhere this time,the first time we were up there it was VW bus campers,we didnt see many of those this trip.


We did see an astro van that had been cut off behind the front doors and a wall built there,it had a trailer tongue on the front and someone was camping in it,having a big time i assume.


The stuff that really makes me chuckle is the contraptions the trailer guys build to hold the sewer hose at just the right angle,so the stuff flows perfectly down to the pipe in the ground.
I swear those guys were all Romans,building an aquaduct.
Me,i dump and put the hose away,they probably are laughing at me.


I'm still amazed at the "car" campers,people camping in all kinds of little cars,they get out first thing and run into the woods to pee (i guess) and then they walk around the parking lot or whatever brushing their teeth and spitting foam everywhere.
Then they eat granola bars and away they go.


We had people telling us to not go down the Tok cutoff,it was rough and they broke an axle or a spring and blew out tires etc.
AWay we went,right down the Tok cutoff,20 miles an hour below the speed limit,nothing broke or fell off and it was a beautiful drive.
Fact is,on this whole trip,4 birds we only had one windshield get stone damage.
That was on my coach and the window was already broken from damage done last year in the city of Denver.


Funny stuff..

Funny stuff..
Reddit has a thread , R/vandwellers and these kids sleep in anything from a Ford Escort to big vans. They give lessons on how to sleep on the streets and parking lots without getting robbed etc. They have an whole other thread for school buses R/skoolies. Some of them they cut the roofs off, raise them so they make little houses out of them. Some are pretty good. If I was young with no money I might do a school bus. I'm NOT, so onwards to the WOG.
