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. While we love a nice pool, paved roads for biking, clean laundry rooms, and spacious sites, our favorite places aren’t all about amenities. Read on for more campgrounds around the…

Favorite Campgrounds in the US

For all the hype about 2020 being the year of the RV, with sales, rentals, and campground reservations booming, we’ve actually used our RV the least since 2016. Aside from a couple days in January at the tail end of winter break (which may as well be years ago), we’ve been in the RV for…

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…

Out of California and Back on the Road

  I’ll be posting more frequently with updates and photos now that we are on the move again. (I’ll note that since the last post was Part I about Cabot’s Pueblo, I’ll be back for one final entry about my new favorite person and place once I get photos uploaded from the camera.) After a…

Cabot’s Pueblo Museum – Part I

In the last blog post I shared a couple pictures of Cabot’s Pueblo Museum in Desert Hot Springs, an incredible place that happened to be just 10 minutes away from our RV park. I’m kind of obsessed, and went back more than once to take the excellent guided tour, and a lot of photos. The…

Desert Living

  We’ve had an unusually social few weeks in San Diego and Palm Springs, with family and friends in town from the East Coast and local friends visiting the area. It’s been wonderful to spend time with everyone, and good for all of us to have so much social interaction. Especially for Chris and me….

San Diego Has a Beach?

  Jan 27 – We’ve been staying in San Diego County since January 1st but hadn’t been into the city yet. I had to tell Rita and Charlie that San Diego is on the ocean, and we will get to go to the beach! The main reason we’ve been holding off is to wait until…

Falling in Love with an Unlikely Place

Just a few weeks into our full time travel adventures, before starting this blog, we found ourselves in the town of Likely in the northeastern most county of California. It felt like we were in the middle of nowhere, and it was wonderful. Read about our experience and see more photos of this underexplored corner of…

The Joys of Reading

January 11, 2017 – I had to leave behind daily hot pool soaks to get motivated to write my next post. We’ve enjoyed the relaxed pace of staying put for a month at a time, first in Desert Hot Springs and now at Santee Lakes outside San Diego. The campground is part of a state…

Exploring Family History

  December 14 – We are settled in Desert Hot Springs, CA for one month (with a little side trip to Santa Cruz). After traveling around so much since August, never spending more than a week at a place, more often 3 or 4 days, it feels good to stay put for a little while….
