Off The Beaten Path: 1917 Packard Motorhome in Oklahoma

On our trip along historic U.S. Route 66, we are finding wonderful scenes and historical places through Missouri, Kansas (13 miles of it), and now Oklahoma. One of the unexpected wonders is the Afton Station & Packard Collection on old 66 just south of Exit 312 on I-44. In a restored DX service station and […]Read More

Carrying Your Zero Gravity Chair on an Older RV

Class B owners tend to be experts in compact packing. Among other things we tend to have compact camp chairs. The Pico Telescoping Chair is one favorite small packing chair. And “bag” chairs come in a variety of sizes.  Such chairs can be comfortable or not so comfortable depending on design.  We were always a bit […]Read More

Cody, Wyoming: RV to The Perfect Dose of Western Culture

After my lovely Olga got her new oil pan and coolant hose in Colorado Springs, I bade farewell to my gracious hosts, and was on my merry way to Cody, Wyoming. There, I was to meet up with a few of my favorite Roadtrekers. I drove up to Glendo State Park, about 100 miles southeast […]Read More

Broken Down on the Road: My RV, Olga, Gets Sick

It’s 1:30 PM and I just settled into a lovely campground until I continue on tomorrow. I have the back doors open, looking out to a bear box, a bit of waterfall, and am listening to the rushing river. I’m at 7,000 feet just between Beartooth Pass and Yellowstone. But let me start from the […]Read More

RV Side Trip: The Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine in West Virginia

A great out of the way stop is the Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine and Museum in Beckley, W.V. We discovered it about five years ago and have returned many times since on our way to and from points east. Beckley is about 60 miles south of the state capital, Charleston, on the West Virginia Turnpike. […]Read More

Bead Fatigue and Other RV Thoughts From the South

Random RV thoughts on the south: It’s been one month on the road in Florida, Mississippi and Louisiana, mostly along the gulf coast. – It’s so great, that even animals have fun. I’ve seen gators sunbathing and big otters playing in estuaries. I’ve watched dolphins cavorting in the early morning. Deer and raccoons have been […]Read More

C’mon In! An RV Show Sans RV Show

At home, if a stranger is walking down your street, you don’t invite them in for a home tour. But at a campground, well, things are a little different. If you hang around outside someone’s rig long enough, there’s a good chance you’ll get an invite for a tour. And you might do the same […]Read More

Back to Nature: Florida Roadtreking and RV Fun

I am tired! The good kind. It’s been a busy time here at the “Back to Nature” rally in Crystal River, Fla.   I got here the night before the official start day. I usually don’t like long drives, but it was one of those days where I kept thinking, “it’s not that far, I can […]Read More

Laura’s 8 Reasons to RV Rally

Recently, after my 2 week, unplanned, solo trip to the Black Hills, I tried something new. I attended my first Roadtrek International rally.  It was a smallish (under 50 people), Region 7 rally held in Hutchinson, KS which is not far from my home in Kansas City.  I thought I would zip over, since I […]Read More

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
