Death Valley Driving (of Doom)

Tuesday, October 7 (continued) After the lake visit, I hook up and it’s back on the road. We scoot through the southern side of Vegas, then head West through the oddly named town of Pahrump and get on 190 heading into California. This is my first time in California which is exciting, it always feels [...]

Something Bout A Campfire

On a chilly night, with a gathering of friends, or in a new place you’ve never visited before, there’s just something special about a campfire. For me, it’s the epitome of the camping and vacation experience. Much of the fondness for them likely stems from my childhood. I have very good memories of family camping [...]

Morning Drive

A full moon hangs low in the west, playing through wisps of cloud left over from the rain earlier in the night. In front of the truck, huge black sentinels jut up into the heavens, indistinct and back lit. The truck rounds a bend, and the here the sentinels jump into detail where the moonlight [...]

Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, UT

  Thursday, August 14 I stayed up much too late last night reading and overslept this morning, oops? But hey, it’s a day off and I’ve got no place I need to be, it’s nice to sleep in on occasion. It’s mostly cloudy out and temperatures are holding in the 70’s with little to no [...]

A New Resource

I’d like to start out this post with a shout out to Russ and June, and Debbie, members of the IO community here, and the couple traveling in the Casita (if you gave me your names, I’ve forgotten them, sorry) who while not devout blog readers still knew who I was. These folks have all [...]

Appreciate the Simple Things

Some days I sit in front of my laptop and wonder what I’m going to write about. On those days when I have no big adventure to share, inspirational words to impart, or bits of hard earned wisdom for would-be RVers, I scratch my head and reach for mundane things that some of my readers [...]

Spring Weather

Ka-boom! Thunder rattles the Casita and I am wide awake, it’s 4 am. A thin line of strong storms pushed through yesterday evening as night was falling, a hint of things to come. Julie and I were hanging out with some of our fellow rennies and we all joked around, wondering if Student Day would [...]

An Empty Village

I’ve had an enjoyable week here in Fairburn. More time to read, work on various projects, and get Cas spick and span now that I’m not having to drive state to state every weekend. The weather has been gorgeous too, highs in the 70’s, and I almost hate to say it for fear of jinxing [...]

Something New

One thing that never ceases to thrill me about traveling is all of the new things I get the opportunity to experience. On Thursday I got to observe a prescribed fire for the first time here at the OSBS, it was a lot of fun! Thursday I’m amazed at what all needs to come together [...]

My Favorite Part of RVing

A question for all of you RVers and RVing hopefuls out there. What is (or do you think will be) your favorite thing about the lifestyle? This question is a bit tough for me to answer because there are so many things I like about RVing that it’s hard to narrow it down to one [...]
