What’s the tightest campground we’ve ever parked in?

We recently camped at what was one of the tightest campgrounds we’ve ever been in with our 5th wheel.  It’s not that the campground was small, so much as there were TONS of trees and obstacles that our 42ft trailer just didn’t play nice with.  Honestly, most New England campgrounds are similar to this one […]

Riding our Bikes along the Cape Cod Canal Bike Path

As long as you don’t say we are in Sandwich, MA you are fine.  (Jen hates that name for a town) Follow along with us as we get ready for and travel to the bike path along the Cape Cod Canal.  About 20 minutes from the Gateway to Cape Cod RV Resort, the path was […]

Have You Seen Martians? | Carlsbad Caverns National Park

We had to spend a few extra days at Big Bend National Park because there were incredibly high winds in our travel path.  (See the Big Bend Posts Here) When it was safe to leave we decided to go to Carlsbad Caverns National Park. The drive was about 5 hours in total, so we mapped our trip to […]

Our Terrifying First Boondocking Experience | Buckey Hills Arizona

Our first boondocking experience was anything but terrifying, now that we get to look back at it and smile.  In fact, it was a pleasant surprise despite our biggest fears, but we had to claw our way to that feeling of comfort, one cactus at a time.  When we set out to explore the US […]

What to do in the Rain while Camping

This is an easy post.  What things can you do in the rain while you are camping or RVing.  Well you could play cards, board games, video games… All kinds of great activities.  Since we were just coming off of a few days of rainy weather while staying in Columbus Texas, our favorite activity is […]

Can you believe that Prada would not let us in!

Unbelievable that we drove all that way, down miles and miles of road without cell phone service for what seemed like hours… (wait it was – HOURS) just to arrive at the steps of Prada’s anchor store and be LOCKED OUT!  Don’t they know who we are!?!?! 

RVing in Columbus Texas Version 2.0

The day we drove into Columbus Texas we boondocked in a Walmart parking lot until our reservations began at Colorado River RV.  When we woke up, who would have thought you could witness the most amazing sunrise ever in a Walmart parking lot??   (The water in the foreground is a huge puddle in the parking […]

Is Balanced Rock (Big Bend National Park) worth the hike?

Our RV trip to Big Bend

This post is partially narrated by Leighton and Shayla as part of their homeschool, writing practice, typing practice, and spelling practice.   As the title suggests… We asked ourselves the same question when we first were looking for an easy late day hike in Big Bend National Park.  Is Balanced Rock worth the trip?  For […]

Boondocking Near Joshua Tree National Park

So after our  Yeah, you should fit.  The Cul De Sac of Hell.  experience (click the title to read that post), we were scrambling to find a new location to set up camp for the next few days.  All we had to do now was travel outside Joshua Tree National Park, to get some cell […]

Yeah, you should fit. The Cul De Sac of Hell. Joshua Tree National Park.

“Yeah you should fit” With those reassuring words from the rather confident park ranger, we gladly dished out our $80 for a National Park Annual Pass, and headed into the park.  (We just bought an annual pass knowing we would be seeing other parks) Prior to arriving at the north entrance of Joshua Tree National […]
