Some people who full-time like to plan out their whole year in advance, and can tell you where they’ll be at any given date during the year. Others do very little planning at all, and might get on the road in the morning not knowing where they’ll end up that evening. While I admire those [...]
I got about two nights of relief in the cabin, that’s all, before the next rough weather alerts started going out. Today the increasingly familiar red banner of severe weather is parading across my screen as rain and strong winds buffet the already battered trees outside. This isn’t the usual high wind advisory, it’s a [...]
Morning dawned bright and clear after the amazing lightning storm of the night before. I’d made plans with a coworker to go into Rapid City today, so the nice weather was a welcome relief. With a 8 am departure time on a Monday, traffic remains light along I90 heading west through the prairie. I’ve never [...]
I spent all morning typing up a post for today, it was almost done and then Open Office froze and I lost it all and the file wasn’t recoverable, never had that happen before. I don’t have time to type it all up again right now, so I’m declaring today a picture day! Have some [...]
That would be the campground I’ve been staying at while employed here in the Badlands. Like the Lodge, it’s owned by Forever Resorts, and this is where all the employee housing is for us out-of-state seasonal folks. But there are also tent and RV sites available for guests, so I thought it deserved a review. [...]
Things have been going very well over here in the Badlands. I’m making a lot friends, visiting exciting new places on my days off, and exploring the natural beauty of the park around work. Even work is going well. I help fellow travelers not so different from myself find the best place to take sunset [...]
This past weekend (Mon and Tues are my weekend) my parents drove over from Wisconsin and we went out to the Black Hills for a mini vacation. It was nice being able to spend more than just the day there then having to drive all the way back. It was also nice getting to see [...]
I get to hear a lot about people’s travel plans while working at the Lodge. Travelers visiting from all over the country, and even several from overseas. Some have RVs like me and are on vacation or retired. Some are road tripping in a vehicle and get nightly accommodations. While I’m waiting for their credit [...]
Wind cave and Jewel cave are the two best known caves in the Black Hills Region. Wind cave is a National Park located just south of Custer State Park, and it’s easy to locate on a map. Jewel cave is a National Monument, and is less well marked. When two coworkers and I set out [...]
Tuesday morning I arose not-so-early to set out on my latest adventure – Custer State Park. This day trip had been a week in the making. I’d originally intended to go the week before, but had a surprise seminar about good customer service set upon me. It’s not something I had signed up for myself, [...]
Live Deliberately, and Go RVing
About This Site:
Go one step further with 'take the road less traveled' and create your own unique path. I write for those interested in RVing on more than just an occasional basis pre- retirement, and for anyone who dares to dream of a more fulfilling life.
