Are you in the Mojave National Preserve? If so, why are you traveling that far for water. I looked at a map for that area and found several sites that show water.

Re: "Campground Water"

In that case, to solve your water dilemma, my suggestion would be to MOVE someplace closer to water! That's why you have wheels on your home!

Re: "Campground Water"

What do you drive? If a pick up, could you use one of these? (the page I found the link to this hauls it in a suburban also) It's 39X23X23, approved for potable water and holds 60 gallons. Might be worth driving the bus to a location with water and fill EVERYTHING.

Re: "Campground Water"

When you redo your tanks, try putting in a valve that will allow you to only use a smaller tank (if using a multi tank setup). That way you can travel with a partial water load.

Does Primm have a fire dept? A lot of folks who boondock say they get their potable water from the fire dept. I know in Corpus Christi that the fire dept on Flour Bluff would let RVers get water from them.

Re: "Campground Water"

I don't care for the gambling scene. First time I was in a casino was on one of the "never leave the dock" river boats in Kansas City. It was disturbing to say the least. Gave me nightmares. All those grim-faced people pulling the levers on the slot machines. The whole time I had Alan Parsons' Group "Turn of a Friendly Card" (parts one & two). I've not set foot inside a casino since and I'm not really inclined to do so... except perhaps for a buffet . My mom and the rest of my family... my aunt and a couple generations of cousins... went over to Cherokee after they opened up a Harrah's on the reservation. They went for the buffet (supposed to be fantastic and cheap). They had to walk past the gambling area. My kids (who also like Alan Parsons), had the same response as I did.


(Pt 1)
There are unsmiling faces and bright plastic chains
And a wheel in perpetual motion
And they follow the races and pay out the gains
With no show of an outward emotion

And they think it will make their lives easier
For God knows up till now it's been hard
But the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card
No the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card

There's a sign in the desert that lies to the west
Where you can't tell the night from the sunrise
And not all the king's horses and all the king's men
Have prevented the fall of the unwise

And they think it will make their lives easier
For God knows up till now it's been hard
But the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card
No the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card

But a pilgrim must follow in search of a shrine
As he enters inside the cathedral...

(pt 2)
There are unsmiling faces in fetters and chains
On a wheel in perpetual motion
Who belong to all races and answer all names
With no show of an outward emotion

And they think it will make their lives easier
But the doorway before them is barred
And the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card
No the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card

Franklin NC, off and on since 1965 until July 2009. My folks bought a place up there in 1965 and my mom still lives there (part of her side of the family moved up there from FL). One of my cousins (who now lives in Franklin) went to college in Black Mtn. I understand some woman in Black Mountain also had Big Foot's Baby! You are right, that area is beautiful but hard to make a living. Te farther west you go, the harder it is.
