It’s doubtful that anyone is born with a gene that makes them an expert RVer on day one. When we bought our first RV – a 22-foot lightweight travel trailer – we didn’t even know where to fill the fresh-water tank! That’s why on our first time out as full-timers I knew practically nothing. One
National Parks are great destinations to see some breathtaking scenery. However, many RVers are surprised upon arrival that not all National Park campsites are RV friendly. Sometimes, RVers need to stay in private campgrounds close to the park, instead of actually in the park. RVing is an experience like no other, but you do need to prepare before embarking on your journey. Check out our list of parks that are great for RVers, all with their own write up from our resident RV travel expert: Sue Bray. Sue Bray has worked in the RV industry for 35+ years. Over the summer, Sue, her husband Mel, and their boxer Harley took off to tour the country in their 31’ fifth wheel, with no exact plans except to have an adventure. She’s chronicled her trip to provide advice for RVers for many of the most popular parks.
Our stay on Whidbey Island in Washington State was drawing to a close. Ahead of us was a cross-country journey along the top of the country on our way to visit a high-school chum in Chicago and then venture down to Key West, Florida, for the winter. In short, we were approaching a 6-month, 3,600-mile
Travelers shopping for crafts along the back roads can find some treasures, but most of all, the fun is in the adventure and the chance to talk with locals. The best part about traveling through rural New England was the charming “Cottage Industries” sprinkled along the roadsides. These homespun businesses are the essence of what
A total solar eclipse is scheduled to occur Monday August 21, 2017 and is a popular viewing activity for RVers of all ages. A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and earth, partially blocking out the view of the sun until it creates what is referred to as Totality, which
A sign warned us — we were about to turn onto “The Loneliest Road in America.” But with satellite radio and our always-active sense of adventure, we took the challenge. While traveling across endless desert landscapes gives RVers lots of time to think, this journey on “The Loneliest Road in America” is the ultimate experience.
One of the best parts of owning an RV is that we can take our pet boxer dog, Harley, with us. In fact, in the last two years Harley’s RV travels have covered 15 states, plus stops in Mexico and Canada. And he’s certainly not done yet! Our fifth wheel trailer has become a home
The lure of RVing is often that sense of freedom we get when we first head out on the open road. It’s a feeling you can pursue year after year, trip after trip. We often find ourselves dreaming of our next trip, and we’re pretty sure you are no different. So we asked the question,
For the majority of US national parks in the contiguous states of America (the lower 48), it takes dedication to ignore the summer overflow of visitors. The more scenic, the more dedication required. That’s been our experience in the almost four dozen national parks we have explored; yet, the absence of masses of visitors is
