So by these numbers, you've been pulling in to fill up at gas stations of all sizes for 57 years... That's a ton of practice. I have exactly one year of practice. For now, I'll use the app... For the safety and convenience of others if not for myself.

we used an app from allstays while traveling to disney from maryland. it identifies locations for gas stations, places to over night such as walmarts and rest areas, low bridge heights etc. found it to be very helpful.

and the one time i didnt use it for a gas station location, i was very close to loosing a rear stabilizer on a pipe bolard by the gas pump! i knew it was a very small gas station but didnt realize til then just how small it was! after 5 or 10 minutes of some careful maneuvering i was able to get out without any damage but i was sweating it!

Wow, you look older than 17.

Nothing of the sort, just don't see the need to have an ipod, etc in my hand to tell me everything. I would like to see them outlawed in restaurants & public places like smoking.

When I started this I wasn't talking about having the phone in your hand was more talking about looking things up before leaving home or having a copilot look these things up while you drove.

Agreed. My copilot often scopes things out while we're underway.

Hey Mark, I just got that Allstays app. It pretty cool with tons of info. It has Fuel stops, rest areas, RV friendly Walmarts , National Forest and other public and private camp grounds. It's 9.99 , it cuts down from having to use multiple apps to travel.
Good luck

I think I'm leaning towards that app too. Just something to assist in the planning, which is half the fun. (Off topic alert: I do somewhat agree with OC... Seeing families at restaurants and all of them on their phones is a little disheartening).
