10 Uber Cool Products for the RV

It’s cold here in Kansas City. So I’m inside the house, decluttering drawers and closets, working on overdue projects, catching up on TV shows and surfing the web. Recently, I came across a great site called Dornob and do they have some neat-o designs!!!!  Some of these are probably useful for the trendy RVer, and […]Read More

A Dog’s Life

Rambling Ruka Robinson here, on the road again, with my chauffeur/minion/BFF Laura. I love to travel and have already marked routes all the way to Idaho,Oregon, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida and Georgia and a few other states. Yes it’s hard work, I have to constantly drink plenty of water, but someone has to be able to […]Read More

Spontaneous Roadtreking

We’re the traveling trio- Olga, Laura and Ruka. Olga (stands for Old Ladies Get Aound)  is my comfy-ever-ready-super-cool-traveling machine that makes me feel a little bit like Dr. Who?, because I get in with my dog, Ruka, and we don’t quite know where we are going to end up or what’s in store. Take this […]Read More

Happy Holidays Any Time!

  Earlier this summer, Olga, my RT Adventurous, went to the RV spa for some revitalizing treatments and beautifying. She got 2 new uber batteries. The retractable step was repaired from when I’d hit a big piece of metal in Michigan. All the tanks were cleaned and a hole in the A/C cover was found […]Read More

RV Trip: Tarpon Springs, Florida

Recently, on a five week trip down south in my RT Adventurous, I visited my friend in Clearwater for a few days.  Jackie has been down there a few years and knows all the best spots to go- one of which was Tarpon Springs. I hadn’t read about it, but a lot of folks had […]Read More

An Affordable Long Term RV Resort in Florida

I was tired of taking a half hour to get dressed in my snow gear to walk the dog.  Being half Husky, she loved the weather- but I could take only so much.  So I packed Olga, my trusty RT Adventurous, threw in the kibble, the dog and off we went.  South. I met Mike […]Read More

Birdwatching and Exploring at two Florida State Parks

When I do plan my trips, which is about half the time, I like the ALL STAYS app.  I can find state, national, BLM and private parks to camp.  They have links to websites, routes and maps, phone numbers and general info. Best of all, I can switch to satellite imaging and look at the […]Read More

Horseshoe Beach, Florida: A hidden little gem of a place

Horseshoe Beach, Florida What a little gem! This tiny, northwest Florida coast, fishing village of 300 year round residents, was established in 1935 by Burton Butler  and CC Douglas, who bought the land from a large lumber company for $324 and later sold lots to the other squatters for $10. It remains a quiet community […]Read More

On an RV Road Trip you better be ready for the unexpected

In the immortal words of Roseanne Rosaennadanna,  “It’s always something!” A Roadtrekking friend, Pogo, invited a bunch of us (Facebook: Roadtreking the Group), down to his place in Gautier, MS for a Mardi Gras get together, and I decided this would be a wonderful way to kick off the 2014 travel season.  Plus, I have […]Read More

Wanderlust – Here she goes again

Maps? Check. Shorts? Check. Binoculars, scope and camera? Check. Canine Co-pilot who can’t read a map worth a darn? Check. Olga, my trusty Roadtrek camper, is ready to be de-iced, gassed up and loaded for trekking. I received an invitation that I couldn’t refuse from the Godfather of the Gulf. One of my Roadtrek Facebook […]Read More

A year in my Roadtrek

It's that time of year when we look back at the year now ending. For me, 2013 ended up being a great year for me after a rocky start. My step-father died Dec. 30th. He was a great man who had raised me since I was 9 years old.  I also had some mysterious tumors in […]Read More

Thanksgiving in Kansas City

There is no better public Thanksgiving Day tradition than the Plaza Lighting in Kansas City.  With thousands of spectators, entertainment, shopping, food and celebrities, no other city can touch this kick off of the holidays on Thanksgiving night. And after stuffing ourselves, it is a wonderful way to cap off the night. Of course I […]Read More
