Actually I think it was a photobucket glitch. Looks like they are there now. It was doing it on all my posts this am.

We really love the Bighorn National Forest. We have camped there at least once a years for the past ten years. Old Lucy has camped at Buffalo and Ranchester. We regularly leave Lucy at the campground and do some dispersed camping the the National Forest in Fred and Ethel.

Hi Gene,

I am going to start a separate Lucy Trip Thread later tonight. We are just about ready to blast off. We're shooting for tomorrow, but it may be Tuesday. New Lucy is really excited as the is her first BIG Adventure.

Thanks, Brian
Pole Mountain is the Forest Service name of the ranger unit. The road in from WY 210, Happy Jack Road, is 707. From the I-80 side it's 706.

I'd leave Lucy in Cheyenne and take Fred west on Happy Jack. There's several Forest Service campgrounds suitable for Fred. If you keep Lucy with you, I'd take I-80 to the Vedauwoo exit and stay at the paved campground there. It's real busy on weekends though.

If you have a Wyoming Gazetteer, it's easy to find.

Jay

Thanks Jay. We will consider the options. We do have a Wyoming Gazeteer. We will take a look in there.

New Lucy had a really rough ride yesterday going through Jackson, Mississippi. US 49 was pretty bad approaching Jackson from the south. We got on to I-20 west hoping for a smoother ride, but it seemed even worse.

When we arrived at Lucy's campground in Clinton (just west of Jackson), virtually every that could fall on the floor did. We had left the shower and bath exhaust fans on while underway trying to dissipate some of the extreme heat. We found that the fan in the shower was off, along with the wardrobe and shower lights, and the bedroom ceiling LED's. A check of the 12 volt fuse panel disclosed that one of the 15 amp fuses had blown. Fortunately, we had an ample supply of fuses left over from Old Lucy and Little Lucy.

It is good to have a pair of needle nose pliers available to deal with these fuses as they are very close together and difficult to get a grip on with just your fingers.

Everything was up and running in short order.

Brian

For those of us (actually most of us) who have a different furnace door...

The cover below should fit perfectly. I am ordering one for Trixie today.

That blown fuse sounds worrisome. Maybe there is a hidden wire on that circuit that has rubbed through its insulation. If so, it could be a bear to fix it permanently.

For changing plastic fuses, I use a fusepuller. I think mine came in a kit with a set of spared fuses. A little easier to use than the pliers, but of course, one more tool to carry along and forget where you put it.

Actually, I have one of those little plastic fuse pullers with me. I tried using it on the errant #1 20 amp fuse in Lucy. That particular fuse is so close to the left side frame of the converter box that I couldn't get the little puller on it. That's when I went to the needle nose pliers. It is so close that I had to use the pliers get put the new fuse in.

Along this same line, that same fuse blew again the next morning. What was strange was that I did not use anything on that circuit. I replaced it again and have not had any further issues with. I am writing it off to a bad fuse as it has been several days.
