Off the Beaten Path: SuperVolcanos & America’s 12 Million-Year-Old Zoo

Most east-west travelers whiz along Interstates and miss the good stuff. U.S. Highway 20 about 100 miles west of Sioux City, Iowa takes you through the heart of America's corn and soybean super farms, but leads you to the Ashfall Fossil Beds in Nebraska.

Mark Twain Cave & Lover’s Leap

The Mississippi was in flood the day we arrived in Hannibal, Missouri. The “Big Muddy” was definitely swollen, fast, and muddy. Hannibal is famous as the hometown of Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain), but we had another interest in the region.  The area around Hannibal is known for its maze caves, and as cavers ourselves we […]Read More

Shenandoah National Park RV Camping in the Fall

Fall is the perfect time to go Shenandoah National Park RV camping! When we came out to the east coast we headed straight to Assateague National Seashore, but weren't able to stay there.

She was born in Manitoba, grew up in Ontario, and headed for the States as soon as she was old enough. I took her to the Maritimes, including […]Read More

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

Extra Power for your Laptop while RVing

We have an older Class B motorhome with a single group 24 deep cycle coach battery.  We have learned how to boondock successfully with a mere 75-80 amp hours and stay within our power limits (see article here).  But where we have to be careful is our laptop computers.  Since we mostly use them after […]Read More
