3 Reasons to visit Michigan by RV

I am headed back home from a wonderful tour with my great friend and fellow RT owner, Laura, a Michigan native whom I met at the Branson Corporate Rally in May. We kept in touch on the Roadtreking: The Group  Facebook page and I managed to wrangle an invitation for a personal tour of her […]Read More

Laura: The most important accessory for your RV

A while ago someone asked, on the Roadtrek Facebook page, about our favorite travel accessory.  I commented that it was my new mattress topper.  However, while it is a wonderful addition and I am sleeping like a baby, I have reconsidered.  On a long and uneventful drive, alone with my wandering thoughts. I realized how […]Read More

Laura: My RV generalizations prior to investigation

I had never RVed before I bought my Roadtrek a year and a half ago, and I had an idiotically pre-conceived notion of what RVers were like.  So I figured I was going to be a lone wolf and have little contact with the others.  After all, I am only just approaching middle age at […]Read More

Laura: Lessons learned while RVing

While driving across eastern Colorado the other day, I tired of the radio and turned it off.  The dog was asleep and not available for our usual, stimulating, one way conversation. Now, there is NOTHING in eastern Colorado along I-70. No farms or trees, no interesting landscape.  There, amazingly, aren’t many billboards. There isn’t even […]Read More

What’s in a name and what to do?

I don’t have a death wish, I am not a witch and not into any creepy stuff, but I have been to a lot of Devil’s body parts and places. Devil’s Backbone, Devil’s Arm, Devil’s Corral, Devil’s Den, Devil’s Cave, Seven Devils, Devil’s Tower, Devil’s Elbow, even the Devil’s Washbowl for heaven’s sake.  What does […]Read More

It’s My Way To The Highway

The DeLORME (I can’t figure out why they spell it that way) Atlas and Gazetteer is mandatory for every state I travel.  You can order from them directly or from Amazon. Big Box Bookstores carry them, but they never have the state you want. I found out about them from my girlie birder friends, who […]Read More

Laura out West: Hot and getting hotter

It's 100 degrees and going up! I am at 4400 feet and it’s HOT.  But, as we Missourians say, at least it’s dry heat. Doesn’t feel anything like KC (or Houston or Charleston) in the summer where it’s muggy and close and, well, you know.  Here, sweat and hair dry quickly and I don’t look […]Read More

Laura in Idaho: Elk and Eden

We have been back on the road again, after several days in Salmon, ID, although it was hard to leave.  I made some good friends who I am bound to see again and the area was lovely. Got to see a great herd of elk, and my first Chukar. Not to mention the vet who […]Read More

Laura Robinson: Ruka gets lucky and a near cliffhanger in Spud Country

I have been weaving in and out of the incredibly gorgeous Wyoming/Idaho border the last 3 days, working my way up north through the Caribou/Targhee National Forest. I came along Alpine Lake, then into west Yellowstone, north again to Mesa Falls.  Spending nights at National Park Campgrounds where the flowers are in full regalia, perfuming […]Read More

Laura: A slow trek to Idaho

I've been Roadtreking to Idaho… slow and easy. Day 1 started off frantically with final packing, almost forgetting Her Majesty’s food dish and dog food.  She is a bit picky and will be discombobulated for a few days, out of her routine, so it’s a good thing I remembered. It isn’t your run of the […]Read More

Laura: Why I’m a Roadtreker

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.  Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.  ~Mark TwainHi everyone. I'm Laura and this is my Roadtreking guest blog. I'll […]Read More
