New Guy in town

Hello all, new guy on the block here. Wanted to touch base with folks as a networking tool to identify some travel spots (Western US)that may be somewhat "the road less traveled". Also am on the lookout for a Quantum 5, Escape 5.0 or Scamp fifth wheel. Will pay close attention to anything coming up.Thanks for your visit, will be hollering back at you.

HI Tom, welcome to FiberglassRV. I think you'll like any of your choices... although I'm with Alf, the Escape 5er would be my first choice

BTW: Perris Pacer DID make a 5th wheel... those are really hard to find. Be sure to keep it on your radar! Perris Pacer 5th Wheel

"The road less traveled" brings to mind the drive to the Wedge Overlook and Buckhorn Flat, in Utah between Green River and Castle Dale. From what I hear, one can drive through there and camp for days along a canyon rim and possibly not see a soul. I might go there someday, if I get a satellite phone (just in case) first.

You can get a SPOT and be safe anywhere on earth and it's cheaper than a Sat Phone.

I Haven't made it up to Green River yet(almost). Took the 191 up to Duchesne. Saw some nice country up there, will search out the Buckhorn Flat area. Thanks

If you're in the Duchesne area you might want to visit the Red Cloud Loop up Vernal canyon. Really nice drive but a good part of it is graded dirt; lots of places to camp up there but you'd better hurry, the snows will soon make it impassable. If you like history, you might want to visit Brown's Park, where they have some pioneer cabins and tell the story of the old Robber's Trail. Again, it's accessible only by graded dirt road. The most majestic sight would be to take the little hike to Harper's Corner and see the confluence of the Green and Yampa rivers - really a fantastic view. It's in the Dinosaur National Monument but very few people go there due to it's isolation, although it does have a paved road all the way to the trail head. Google any of these for more information.

Thanks Ray; I'll be making it up there again in the spring. My Friend from SLC has property in Duchesne above Starvation Lake. Great getaway site with 30X50 Garage with outside pad and Full Hookups for 2 RV's-- Tom

I will also recommend you take highway 89 instead of Interstate 15. You will see a lot more interesting and beautiful country on 89, instead of just desert.

Other somewhat out-of-the-way places we have enjoyed in southern and central Utah include: Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park; Red Cliffs Recreation Area and campground; the Kolob Canyons part of Zion National Park, (especially if you hike to the end of one of the box canyons); Cedar Breaks Natl. Monument up the beautiful Cedar City canyon; and especially the Nebo Loop Scenic Byway. You can Google these areas to see what and where they are. If you have a day or two, the 15 mile hike to the top of Mt. Timpanogos is absolutely breathtaking - a trip that I have made about ten times through the decades with my father, my wife, and my sons, (and I hope to make it at least once more before I am unable).

Thanks again Ray. A friend here in town mentiond he had been to Pink Coral Dunes and loved it. It is now on my list for sure. I like going down the byways such as 89, less hustle bustle and easier on the rig. Tom
