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

Take a Trail Cam on your RV trips

I love shooting animals. With my camera. As a native Michigander, I grew up hunting. But something happened a few years ago. I just didn't want to shoot them with a gun anymore. So I started using a camera. I have nothing against those who do. I still head out to the marshes with my […]Read More

Roadtrek Facebook Group descends on Kitchener

It was a testimony to the power of social networking and the bonds that can develop from the small motorhome lifestyle.

Great Lakes Shoreline Tour: Superior’s North Shore

Of all the traveling we’ve done on this 4,000-mile Verizon Great Lakes Roadtreking Shoreline Tour, Lake Superior’s North Shore in Wisconsin and Minnesota has provided the most diverse scenery to date.

What Makes a Good RV Salesperson?

Yesterday I took my cute little Roadtrek SS Agile to the Service Department at Holland Motor Homes in San Marcos, CA. It is at the RV hospital. I have been having issues with a leak behind the bathroom that very inconveniently drips onto my bed. Recently I discovered rust spots on the roof. Rust on […]Read More

How We Roll: Working Out on the Road

Jennifer has one requirement as we travel: We find a place to work out. She's a fitness instructor by occupation, though lately, because of our near-fulltime traveling schedule, she's had to cut back on the classes she teaches. But that doesn't mean she cuts back on her fitness goals. Admittedly during some trips – like […]Read More

RV vacations ruined as National Parks shut down

The budgeting mess and political wrangling in Congress over Obamacare has ruined the vacation plans of tens of thousands of RVers who had planned to camp in a national park this week. The National Parks shut down is also hitting hard the bordering communities whose economic livelihood is closely tied to a steady stream of […]Read More

Atomic RV Tourism – The Trinity Site

The Trinity site is where the first atomic bomb was detonated on July 16, 1945, three weeks before the weapons were used at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Manhattan Project had been working at a feverish pitch in Los Alamos, New Mexico, and needed a nearby test site, so the aptly-named Journada del Muerto (route of […]Read More

How to unclutter your RV

We have discovered the one all important guiding principle that more than anything determines the success or failure of an RV trip: There needs to be a place for everything and everything should be in its place. When we first began our RV travels, we took everything. Sometimes two of everything. Both Jennifer and I […]Read More

Why we chose a Class B motorhome as our RV

When we share our love of RVing in our 22-foot Type B motorhome with friends and relatives, probably the most common question we get is why a Type B?  Why not one of those giant Type A motorhomes? Well, no offense to Type A or Type C owners but we’re really hooked on small motorhomes […]Read More
