Road to Yellowstone

Tuesday, May 5 The weather is promising: mild temperatures, a cornflower blue sky adorned with wispy white clouds, a beautiful spring day. A good day for driving. By 10 am I’m rolling down my parent’s driveway, it’s a right turn from there to get to Yellowstone. The biggest journey starts with but a single step. […]

The Less Glamorous Side of RVing

In one week I’ll be leaving Wisconsin and heading out to Yellowstone! Some tasks are hard to do or frowned upon while in an RV park, so instead of doing a lot of sight-seeing or day trips during my time parked in my parent’s driveway, I’ve been pretty busy making good use of this time […]

Camp-Inn Teardrop Factory Tour

Last month, while Julie and I were volunteering in Enchanted Rock State Natural Area in TX, a couple pulled into the park with the neatest teardrop trailer I’d ever seen. It was aluminum skinned like an Airstream, had panoramic windows in front and old-fashioned white-wall tires and fancy curved fenders. I pulled the golf cart […]

Visiting Family

Last week was for relaxation and reconnecting with family. After festival last weekend, I drove the short 20 minutes to the Atlanta Airport where I reluctantly left Bertha to the mercies of long term parking and hopped a plane to Minneapolis, MN.

How to Choose the Best Type of RV

One question I see pop up on RVing forums over and over again is what type of RV is best. There are two answers to this question, a long one and a short one. The short one is that there is no one best kind of RV, just the one that works best for you. […]

Conducting an Annual Review

I’ve never been a big fan of New Years Resolutions, they seem designed to set you up for failure. You create a lofty goal, but that initial enthusiasm isn’t enough to carry you through the whole year. Then you start to wonder how you’re going to pull it off, and all too often it falls […]

Holiday Update

I hope everyone had a good holiday, I know I am! The trip up to Wisconsin was uneventful. Google thought it should take 9 hours and 48 minutes to drive the 640ish miles from Coffeyville to Madison, so I figured it’d be 12 hours pulling the RV since I go a maximum of 60 mph, […]
