A Quick Trip and How a Roadtrek Can Bond

Some friends you have for a short while and then you both move on. Other friends fall into the category “Friends for Life”. I moved to San Diego in 1984. Right after I got here I joined the Moreton Bay Fig All Women's Morris Dance Team. I met Thelma. She and I have danced, hiked and […]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

A Roadtreking Happy Thanksgiving

It's Thanksgiving in the U.S., a few weeks after our Canadian friends celebrated their nation's holiday of the same name.

8,000 Miles, Still Learning

I am traveling west. Last night I camped in the Badlands of South Dakota. Mmmm, what a lovely place. I met up with another Roadtreking threesome which was delightful. Dinner is so much nicer when shared with others. This morning as I meandered through the National Park a dashboard indicator light came on. I admit, […]Read More

KOA re-brands itself according to facilities and amenities

One of the biggest surprises we had last year in our travels was with KOA – Kampgrounds of America. On our trip west and then on other meanderings over the season, we had the opportunity of staying at about a dozen KOA campgrounds across the U.S. They were all good experiences, to be sure, but […]Read More

Boondock RVing makes for the perfect getaway, despite the UFO

Sometimes, it's those spur-of-the-moment getaways that make for the best RVing. So it was this past weekend when we headed to northern Michigan and did some boondocking – camping on our own, in no designated camp space, with no commercial hookups. It was perhaps the best experience we've had in our RV all year, made even more fun […]Read More

The “Dog Divide” – Traveling with a dog in an RV

We have a dilemma as we prepare for a very long extended trip west in our Roadtrek: Should we take our dog, Tai, an eight-year-old , 70 pound Norwegian Elkhound? There are a lot of pros and cons and, beneath the surface, strong feelings among a lot of campers and campground owners. First, I need […]Read More
