RV Guide to California Highway 395 Part 2 – Lone Pine to Bishop

I’m sharing a comprehensive guide to RVing along California Highway 395, From Lone Pine, the drive continues through the town Independence, with its surprisingly grand county courthouse. Once you reach the tiny town of Big Pine it’s easy to continue straight on to Bishop, but you would miss one of the most unique spots along the route.

Family Skiing during COVID-19

We got to experience opening weekend at Heavenly Ski Resort in South Lake Tahoe, California in November. Of course, this ski season during a global pandemic is like no other. Everyone needs to closely follow local guidelines, restrictions, and be prepared – including the chance that plans may need to be cancelled. Even if a…

More Favorite Campgrounds in the US

In my last blog post I shared five of our favorite campgrounds, from California’s Central Coast to the shores of Lake Champlain in Burlington, Vermont.

RVing and Social Distancing Through Northern Nevada

For our first RV trip since the pandemic hit, we turned our attention to lesser traveled destinations in our own state of Nevada. From Reno, we have access to remote towns with intriguing Basque history, Native American archaeological sites, dinosaur fossils, and seemingly endless mountain ranges, including the stunning Ruby Mountains and one of the least visited National Parks, Great Basin. All of this, plus open, empty roads and expansive high desert views like a quarantine fever dream. What better time to explore The Loneliest Road in America?

Thinking About RVing for the First Time?

  Even though we spent almost two years RVing full-time, I hardly feel like an expert on the subject. Partly because Chris has done the bulk of the research into finding our two motorhomes and their physical upkeep, plus 100% of the driving.  But also, the RVer blogs and social media accounts I’ve been following…
