We were camp hosts at San Simeon State Park this summer with stage 3 water restrictions.  Most water in the campground was shut off and restrooms/showers were closed, but dump station was open.  Fees were reduced $10

That speed limit its very good to know. Thank you Mike! John would probably have been OK, but I would have gotten a ticket.

One thing that folks should know if traveling in California....there is a statewide speed limit of 55 MPH for any vehicle that is towing anything.

You guys are taking what's available now as set in stone as far as the Transit goes. Back in early June I attended the first Transit ride & drive open to the public in Kansas City, where the Transit is built.
There was a bunch of Ford engineers there that talked to us all and gave us a few hints of things to come, one of which was there were more versions coming along as time goes on. They would not say what or when. I took that to mean a T-450 and maybe a 550 (less likely) version eventually.

By the way, I drove 5 different versions, all vans, 250's & 350's & duallys, diesel and EcoBoost, loaded with 3500 lbs of cargo, and I can say I was impressed. I drove our 2013 Sprinter class B RV van over there for a back to back comparison experience which cemented my feeling that this current RV would be our last Sprinter chassis in an RV.

Another point, Ford is currently saying the E series cutaway will be available until 2020. The RV and fleet market for them is small as auto manufacturing numbers go, and being a 35 year auto industry employee, I'll believe it when I see it.......

I used a latex caulk around the perimeter (including where the tile meets the counter) and grout in the center joints. I also used adhesive sheets to adhere the tile to the wall.

I will be keeping a close eye on the grout joints for signs of cracking but don't expect any..................we shall see   Smile
It will be interesting to learn how the grout holds up for you over the miles.

Ron, I'm surprised at your answer.   I thought you guys spent a good bit of time in BLM sites which are usually full boon docking.
Yes we boon dock all the time, but we do dump and replenish every 3 to 4 days.  Apparently there is temporarily no operational dump station in or around the area in discussion.

Mike, re: Lake Tahoe - we spent a week on the south shore about 6 years back (in a timeshare we had traded into). We drove around the entire lake and took that paddle boat cruise and hiked several trails with our 2 year old granddaughter strapped to John's back, and checked out the just closed ski resorts (my son would have loved to have gotten there a week earlier). It was a beautiful place and a great trip.

We also found the world's best hamburger (at least the best I've had so far). I'm a bit of a hamburger purist. No cheese or bacon or goo to cover the flavor. Just perfectly grilled beef with fresh lettuce, tomatoes and dill pickle slices - heaven. AND my favorite to date was found at the Bridgetender Restaurant in Tahoe City, CA.

Tahoe would be a heck of a detour from our planned route... but they have those great hamburgers. I might have to try to whisper in John's ear while he's sleeping and see if the idea takes hold.

Those state park restrictions sound a whole lot like boondocking. While we don't mind boondocking and prefer to do it a woodland or parkland environment, we would object to paying for facilities that are not available. Are they still charging full fees to camp there?

Ron, I'm surprised at your answer. We have spent a week to ten days with no outside water or facilities. We don't behave like we are on full hookups, of course, but we do just fine. We are extremely frugal with water, carry extra jugs for drinking, use disposable plates etc. to avoid needing to wash dishes, take lots of sponge baths (or find a nice lake to swim in) and do just fine. We are on full hookups now and it feels like luxury. I hope we don't get spoiled.

 Yahoo! MeToo Beautful, looks great. My wife and I plan to order the 2450 in a few months. Maybe I can get the factory to do that for us.   Bev and  Tim Reilly
