Killing Tumbleweeds

It was time to hit the road from Tucson, AZ to Las Cruces, NM. I’d had a wonderful week in the area, which is worth a separate article. But now I was headed to another famous park, Bosque Del Apache Wildlife Refuge, which is famous among birders. I wanted to stop, again, at the KOA […]Read More

Laura’s Notes from Texas

FINALLY- it’s been waaaaay too long since I’ve been on a road trip. This winter, I decided to head to the southwest, an area I have not been in my RS Adventurous. Good choice! The general route is to Dallas to see a friend, Big Bend National Park (it’s National Park Year after all) and […]Read More

Observations: When It Comes to RVing Friends, I Have the Best!

I consider myself uber lucky to have met so many wonderful RVers during my travels. I have visited a few, met up and been fed, socialized with, learned from, toured with and had my van repaired by kind, generous folks from across North America. So I figured it was my turn to throw out a […]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

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

Morning: The Best Time of My RVing Day

My Best Time of Day. It wasn’t until I quit the restaurant business, back in the Jurassic period, that I realized I was a morning person. I love to wake just before dawn and watch the golden orange light slide down the trees and across the grass. Listen to the birds wake and begin to […]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

Zen and the Art of Sprinter Side Door Opening

Whenever people get a Sprinter for the first time, they are amazed at all the differences between Sprinters and domestic vans. One big difference is the side door, the most frequently used door once you're camped somewhere. It's big and heavy and slides instead of opening on hinges. However, there is a trick to minimizing […]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

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

Happy Holidays Any Time!

  Earlier this summer, Olga, my RT Adventurous, went to the RV spa for some revitalizing treatments and beautifying. She got 2 new uber batteries. The retractable step was repaired from when I’d hit a big piece of metal in Michigan. All the tanks were cleaned and a hole in the A/C cover was found […]Read More

The Painting of Sprinter-based Roadtreks

The Agile and Adventurous Roadtrek models are on the Mercedes Sprinter chassis, and part of the transformation from bare-bones chassis to finished motorhome includes painting parts or all of the chassis as delivered from Mercedes. Here's how the painting operations fit into the rest of the manufacturing process. Take a look at a chassis waiting […]Read More
