Well, we are off to Lake Tahoe tomorrow. It will be a long driving day with an interesting drive between the desert floor and the 11 mountain passes to traverse along the way. Needless to say, I think we will drive separately. We have been at Great Basin NP for the last 3 days. What a different environment and scenery than where we came from in Colorado. The Great Basin stretches from the California’s Sierra Nevada mountains, through most of Nevada, to Utah’s Wasatch mountains. It is HUGE! The G...

Sometimes you want to grab your things last minute and head out of the city for a night or two of camping to reconnect with nature and unwind. Unfortunately, many campsites (at least here in BC) are booked up months in advance, so it’s impossible to get a site last minute. You’re stuck trying to plan your camping trips so far in advance that you may be stuck with bad weather or other plans.  Is there another option? If you know where to find them, there are free, user-maintained campsites t...

If you enjoy the outdoors or the freedom of the road ahead, you may think that buying an RV is a great idea - and it is! But there are some things you should know before you make the investment because while it may seem like a dream come true, there are realities to the situation that are rarely seen by those who do not own RVs. Maintenance, tank emptying, and route planning will become your new normal if you buy an RV, but if you want to make memories on the road there is no better way to do it...

Rocky Mountain NP We are once again back to one of our “happy places”!  We love Rocky Mountain National Park! This is our third trip back to the park, as we travel further west to California. We have stayed on the Estes Park side in a cabin years ago, before we had our camper, and that was terrific. There is so much to see and do in that area. The little town is awesome, and if you’re a Stephen King fan, the Stanley Hotel in Estes is where some of the scenes of his famous movie “The Shining...

The Tar Heel State is home to some of the most breathtaking waterfall views east of the Mississippi. Many of them are so accessible that you don’t even need to get out of the car. Others require some get-away-from-it-all hiking.  With nearly 250 waterfalls, North Carolina is one of the best waterfall destinations in the US. Squeezing them all in on a single North Carolina vacation probably isn’t practical, so here are the falls we think should be at the top of your bucket list.  Whitew...

Alone So full disclosure, My husband and I frequently watch survival reality shows. Each one has its own set of rules and expectations. Many learn to thrive, while others submit to failure pretty quickly.  I can tell you right now I am not spending 5 minutes naked in the wilderness with biting bugs. And I wouldn't do it for 30 seconds on national television. Sometimes you are left with others, and your survival depends on that dynamic. Other times you are all alone.  You have to be rea...

Camping Etiquette I recently was scrolling through social media and found several people that were frustrated about the same thing.  Because I am a full-time RV’er, I am a member of several camping groups. I like to read about new tips and tricks. I also love to read about the best campgrounds. These groups do come with their share of drama.  On this occasion, Memorial Day weekend had just ended, and campers were returning home. Many chose the groups to air their anger. It is no secret...
