RV Trip: Tarpon Springs, Florida

Recently, on a five week trip down south in my RT Adventurous, I visited my friend in Clearwater for a few days.  Jackie has been down there a few years and knows all the best spots to go- one of which was Tarpon Springs. I hadn’t read about it, but a lot of folks had […]Read More

An Affordable Long Term RV Resort in Florida

I was tired of taking a half hour to get dressed in my snow gear to walk the dog.  Being half Husky, she loved the weather- but I could take only so much.  So I packed Olga, my trusty RT Adventurous, threw in the kibble, the dog and off we went.  South. I met Mike […]Read More

Birdwatching and Exploring at two Florida State Parks

When I do plan my trips, which is about half the time, I like the ALL STAYS app.  I can find state, national, BLM and private parks to camp.  They have links to websites, routes and maps, phone numbers and general info. Best of all, I can switch to satellite imaging and look at the […]Read More

Horseshoe Beach, Florida: A hidden little gem of a place

Horseshoe Beach, Florida What a little gem! This tiny, northwest Florida coast, fishing village of 300 year round residents, was established in 1935 by Burton Butler  and CC Douglas, who bought the land from a large lumber company for $324 and later sold lots to the other squatters for $10. It remains a quiet community […]Read More

On an RV Road Trip you better be ready for the unexpected

In the immortal words of Roseanne Rosaennadanna,  “It’s always something!” A Roadtrekking friend, Pogo, invited a bunch of us (Facebook: Roadtreking the Group), down to his place in Gautier, MS for a Mardi Gras get together, and I decided this would be a wonderful way to kick off the 2014 travel season.  Plus, I have […]Read More

Wanderlust – Here she goes again

Maps? Check. Shorts? Check. Binoculars, scope and camera? Check. Canine Co-pilot who can’t read a map worth a darn? Check. Olga, my trusty Roadtrek camper, is ready to be de-iced, gassed up and loaded for trekking. I received an invitation that I couldn’t refuse from the Godfather of the Gulf. One of my Roadtrek Facebook […]Read More

Horsing around with my RV

Horses are not my specialty.  A couple of years ago I took my nieces to a dude ranch in CO.  While it was fun and the food amazing, I only rode in the mountains one day. The rest of the time I took lessons in the indoor arena. I wasn’t a great student; my horse […]Read More

Things have gotten complicated on newer RVs, and you need to keep up with the times. Don't go jabbing at the buttons on your flux capacitor without knowing exactly what you're doing, or you'll be standing there struggling to comprehend the unexpected results with that funny look on your face.  Let's review some of the […]Read More

Sprinter RV lineup joined by new Roadtrek CS Adventurous

A major reason for the huge spike in Class B motorhome sales over the past year or so is the Mercedes Sprinter, a rugged and flexible van that offers RV makers all sorts of customization opportunities.

New eco-friendly, all electric eTrek Class B Motorhome now available

Roadtrek Motorhome's new e-Trek is now showing up in dealer showrooms across North America and I just may be the very first consumer to take possession. Or so Chad Neff of American RV in Grand Rapids told me as he handed over the keys to Jennifer and I. Tai, our Norwegian Elkhound, had already ensconced himself inside.  My […]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
