Dear RV Industry, Where do I begin....since purchasing a brand new Keystone Alpine three months ago I have learned so much about your industry that has truly saddened me. I'm sad for the families who have had vacations ruined by lack of quality control. I'm sad for the hard-workin' men and women who spend anywhere … Continue reading Dear RV Industry…..
So we bought a new camper, a Keystone Alpine 3901RE toyhauler. We weren't looking to purchase a new one, but one of our favorite past times is walking through RV dealerships just to window shop. But we stumbled across this brand new 2017 with the most perfect layout for our lifestyle and it was marked … Continue reading UNC, Williamsburg, Jamestown and Our New Camper
So our original plan was to stay in the Florida Keys until October 1st. After hosting at Curry Hammock State Park, we were going to head about 30 miles west to Bahia Honda State Park to volunteer there for three months. Unfortunately, work commitments had us rethinking our ability to put in the volunteer hours … Continue reading Slight Change of Plans
This is going to be a mini-quickie post. I'm typing and preparing the whole thing on my phone (a first for me), so please excuse any typos. Each park, whether it's privately ran, state or national park have different ways they utilize host/volunteers. These are the questions we think are pretty important to know before … Continue reading Top 5 Things to consider before accepting a camp host position
Sorry for the delay....we've been working extra hard around the campground because all the hosts that were suppose to show up April 1st, just didn't (insert side eye) so we've been pulling double time, plus this also happens to be one of the 40 hour work weeks I mention below. If you are interested in … Continue reading Making and Saving Money While Full-Time RVing and Traveling
I sincerely apologize for our very long blog hiatus, but when planning to leave friends and family for the extended foreseeable future, one must spend as many waking hours with said family and friends, and that’s exactly what we did. Here's what we've been up to. Multiple farewell gatherings, many of which we completely forgot … Continue reading Playing Catch-Up & What We’ve Been Up To
Something's coming soon...not sure what, when or how. We've just been spending every waking moment with friends and family before we take off......in.....like, 5 weeks....holy cow! It's getting close! Some highlights.... Three Christmases spent with Family...one Italian, One Traditional and the other Cajun! Sleepover at my Big Sister's and Niece Mo's house, with Penny, … Continue reading Sorry Not Sorry
After leaving Indian Springs, we relaxed for about three days and then headed out to Charleston, SC, pups and RV in tow. It was nice to finally use the camper for pleasure and take a vacation. No toilets to clean, no late night taps on the door. When deciding where to go, we debated between … Continue reading Charleston…Food, Facts and Fun!
FINALLY!!!! We got out for a real adventure. Went to a place we've never been, did things we've never done and saw things we've never seen.....all with friends that we'll never forget. Alan and Jen are our best friends, they started out as BJ's best friends and I was lucky enough to be accepted into … Continue reading The Perfect Day for a Bike Ride….of the motorized variety
While my Mom and Sister were packing and looking through some of my Grandpa's things (long story there, he's been suffering through some rough times, potential dementia, a fall resulting in hip surgery) they came across multiple copies of my Grandmother's journal detailing their Route 66 road trip out west. My Grandmother (maternal) Carol and … Continue reading Like Grandmother Like Granddaughter
