Why we like boondocking deep in the woods

One question we get a lot when we talk about our love of being off the beaten path and away from everyone is, “Why? What do you do there.” Let me share a typical boondocking jaunt for us, very deep in the woods, in the middle of the Pigeon River Country State Forest Area at […]Read More

Great Lakes Shoreline Tour – Crossing Lake Michigan

Our Roadtrek has its sea legs. Sometimes, to really appreciate something, you have to immerse yourself in it. So it was with Lake Michigan on a trip  around the Great Lakes Region some time ago on our Verizon Great Lakes Shoreline Roadtreking tour. No, we didn’t go swimming in it. Instead of getting wet in the lake, […]Read More

Where do you park your RV?

The snow is gone and the five foot high banks that formed a wall along the driver's side of our Roadtrek has melted away. As I look at it sitting there on it's special little apron in the driveway, I can almost hear it calling: “Take me someplace fun. Now.” But when I snapped this […]Read More

Decorating the RV for Christmas

Every year since we were married more than 40 years ago, Jennifer and I have made our way to the little town of Frankenmuth, MI at the base of the Michigan Mitt's Thumb region where we pay a visit to Bronner's – the world's largest Christmas store. Doubtless you've seen the signs along the interstates, […]Read More

RV Photo Shoot: The Animals of the West

I've spent much of the past few weeks editing and distilling down the 2,800-plus photos I've taken on our western trips over the past couple of years and thought I'd share my top 12 favorite photos of  the animals of the West with you. I have truly embraced photography now as my main hobby and as we traveled […]Read More

Campskunk Returns to Roadtrek HQ in Kitchener

Last you heard I was out on the Pacific coast enjoying the last few days of summer. For the past week or so, you heard… nothing. The reason for the radio silence can now be revealed – I stopped back by the factory to say hi to everybody, and pick up a few things and […]Read More

How We Roll: Bath Towels and Outdoor Chairs

In this edition of How We Roll, Jennifer and I tackle questions from readers asking about how we dry bath towels while we're on the road. Jennifer shows some hooks I attached with stick-on tape and a very simple but effective bungee cord clothesline we have in the bathroom. She also recommends fast-drying micro fiber […]Read More

Travels with the eTrek: A Photo Montage

Like a lot of RVers, I've been reviewing memories and photographs over the past couple of years. That's what we do during the down time: Go back and look at our photos and thus get excited by the places we'll be going once the weather arms up. If you're like me, I bet you have […]Read More

What’s Underneath Your Roadtrek?

Sure, it's nice to look at the shiny paint and lovely interiors of these new Roadtrek models, but the real exciting stuff for us technogeeks is what's underneath. Since you probably don't have a lift in your garage, I'll show you what the bottom of a Roadtrek looks like, and go over some of the […]Read More

Potholes: Worst year ever

It's not just the snow and ice that have been setting records in northern states and provinces this winter: So have potholes. Before setting off on a long trip south yesterday, I stopped by my local tire shop to check the air in my Roadtrek eTrek's tires. While doing so, I noted how busy the […]Read More

My new StowAway cargo carrier for our RV

The one frustration we've had with our Type B motorhome is the limited storage space for the extra gear we would like to have with us on extended trips. So, after a lot of looking and the strong recommendations of our pal Campskunk, I purchased the StowAway2 Max Cargo Box for our Roadtrek eTrek. At […]Read More
