This year, after spending 2020 at home like most everyone else, we traveled cross country and back in our RV for over four months. We visited new states and National Parks, and spent a wonderful six weeks in my hometown of Southold, NY, on the end of Long Island. We saw family and friends for…

RV Guide to California Highway 395 part 4 – Bridgeport to Reno, and beyond!
Our journey along Highway 395 ends with a trip through Nevada and then back into northeastern California, through some of the least populated and most ruggedly beautiful areas of the state.
RV Guide to California Highway 395 Part 3 – Bishop to Bridgeport
My first introduction to 395 was after we first moved from New York to Los Angeles, and would drive up to Mammoth Lakes for ski weekends. I couldn’t get over the spectacular scenery continuously unfolding before us during the entire six hour drive.
RV Guide to California Highway 395 Part 1 – Victorville to Lone Pine
While the drive can be completed in a few hours, a whole vacation can be planned around the natural wonders and historical sites there are right along Highway 395 or a short detour away, including Death Valley and Yosemite National Parks.
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…
History and Wide Open Spaces in Montana
Sheridan was our second stop in Wyoming, after Sundance and Devils Tower National Monument. Peter D’s RV park, just outside of town, had a big fenced-in dog park and even bigger open field where we could let the dogs off leash. Wyoming had fulfilled our expectations so far with its wide open spaces. While Chris got some work…
State Capitols, Devils Towers, and Drive-thru Bars
Back in May, on our gradual journey East, we drove through Western Nebraska on our way between Colorado and South Dakota. Our expectations weren’t very high, but the sliver of Nebraska we got to see was full of rich history and surprisingly dramatic landscapes. When we were making our way back West we had the option…
Architecture, Fine Art, and BBQ in the Midwest
Where did we leave off? Oh yes: overnighting at a Walmart parking lot in Wheeling, West Virginia, with a dead car battery. We got the battery charged, stocked up on groceries, ate a McDonald’s breakfast, and were back on the road. Just like the pioneers! Nothing was going to stop us from reaching St….
