Dave & Diane throwing caution to the wind - A tour day of Williamsburg Virginia

From the site: Dave & Diane throwing caution to the wind - A tour day of Williamsburg Virginia

Monday 9/23/13 we woke to another sunny day and decided to get a early start and head into Williamsburg to check out the town. Once there we found a short term parking area and started walking. Not knowing just what we would find we figured the 2 hour parking might work out just fine. Wrong!! A few more shops in downtown Williamsburg A couple of shops in downtown Williamsburg Williamsburg was founded as the capital of the Virginia Colony in 1699. The original capital, Jamestown was the first permanent English-speaking settlement in the New World founded in 1607. Colonial leaders petitioned the Virginia Assembly to relocate the capital from Jamestown to Middle Plantation, five miles inland between the James and the York Rivers. The new city ...Read more...

Love Your RV! - Swimming with Manatees in Crystal River, Florida

From the site: Love Your RV! - Swimming with Manatees in Crystal River, Florida

Swimming with ManateesDuring our epic one year journey RVing around North America in 2011/2012 we had many awesome experiences but one that really stands out even now is swimming with Manatees in Crystal River, Florida. We had traveled most of Florida’s coastline in a clockwise manner and were headed toward the panhandle. An RVer we met down in the Keys had told us it would be perfect timing to see the Manatees at the warm springs in Crystal River. As luck would have it our Thousand Trails membership provided us with great weekly deals at Encore RV parks and there was a goodie just a few miles away from Manatees! We got weekly rates of $159 at the Crystal Isles RV Resort so booked in for two weeks. After so much time in densely popula ...Read more...

Uploads by RVgeeks - RVing on the Gulf Coast Ferry System

From the site: Uploads by RVgeeks - RVing on the Gulf Coast Ferry System

RVing on the Gulf Coast Ferry System In ten years of full-time RVing, we'd only taken our motorhome aboard a ferry twice before, on a round-trip sailing from Horseshoe Bay in Vancouver, Canada to Gibsons, on British Columbia's Sunshine Coast. That trip, on a huge 450-foot-long BC Ferries vessel, took about 45 minutes each way and was very expensive for the RV, our tow car and two people. Despite the cost, there was something very cool about having our RV out on the water, and the beauty of the Sunshine Coast during our month-long stay made it well worth the expense. On a recent trip from New Orleans, LA to Galveston Island, TX, both Google Maps and our GPS suggested that we drive inland, along interstate 10. Since we prefer to stay on ...Read more...

Location: Campbellsville, KY (High 76, Low 49) At this moment I am sitting in my chair with my feet up feeling very happy that it is our Friday! Three days off coming up. Yay! So, let’s see…where to begin…Well, we have just finished our first round of ten hour days. The first week we had five hour shifts. Then the second week we increased our days by 2.5 hours, and then this week, one more 2.5 hour increment to bring our day to the full shift. One thing I am SO grateful for is that I spent this summer doing training for the run in August, because my legs have held up great. This week I have been walking between 7.5 and 9.5 miles on my shifts each day – and I don’t have one of the walking jobs! Both Harry and ...Read more...

From the site: Ray and Cindy's RV Travels - Riverton, Utah September 24, 2013

Yesterday I took the trailer tires to Les Schwab's to have metal stems put in in place of the rubber ones that were there. The one I had replaced in Portland made me kind of leary of driving any more with the rubber ones. I had put the 1st one in  the back of the truck, and when I went to put it on, the tire was flat. I pumped up the tire and checked to see where it was leaking, and it was the new stem. I was planning on paying for 3 more stems, but when they got through, they told me that since I had trouble with the original one, the other three were no charge. It is kind of hard to beat that kind of service.I also replaced the wire going through the axle that had been showing short on my brake controller. When I looked at the old wi ...Read more...

Wheeling It - Fall Plans & The Call Of The Mountains…

From the site: Wheeling It - Fall Plans & The Call Of The Mountains…

Can you EVER have too many sunsets? Or too many lighthouse shots? We’re winding down to our very last week here at Cape Blanco. It’s almost impossible to believe. We’ve spent the last 3 months volunteering on the southern Oregon coast and it feels like we’ve grown roots. But such is the nomadic lure that I’m getting the pull to move again. This past weekend we saw our very first glimpse of winter weather with a day of slashing rain and 50 mph winds at the lighthouse (whoo wheeee!). It’s the beginning of the seasonal change. Winds are shifting, cool air is stirring and the mountains are pulling, pulling, pulling…yes, despite our original intentions to drive south via the CA coast this fall, we&rsquo ...Read more...

To simplify... - Back in Ouray

From the site: To simplify... - Back in Ouray

It occurs to me that in my last post, I made scant mention of my ascent from the Black Canyon. Not unlike the old joke about shutting up an Italian guy by tying his hands behind his back, it seems I am powerless to tell a story without my trusty camera to lead the way. But let me tell you, it was truly exhausting. Never before have I been so spent than when I finally made it back to the van late in the afternoon, and the ensuing three days have largely been devoted to giving each of my four limbs time to recover. Take note, fellow fans of The Trail – if a challenge is what you seek, swing by the Black Canyon's SOB "trail" and see how you measure up.

RV Boondocking News - Add a battery to your RV?

From the site: RV Boondocking News - Add a battery to your RV?

With winter coming on, plenty of boondockers are heading south to the warmer climes. Solar power is definitely riding high on the list of questions that folks have. But even if you have a whole "farm" of solar panels on your roof, you've still got to have someplace to bank that power. A big "whatif" is this one: What if there's no more room in my battery compartment for more batteries?Yes, Virginia, you really can stick more batteries in your RV. It's best to keep the add-on battery as close to the originals as possible, or else relocate all of them to the "new" location. Why come? Well, the longer the run of wire to the battery the more the power loss. The battery or batteries closest to the power source--your solar panels for example--wil ...Read more...

We wanted to be close to home for our first time dry camping, so we stayed at Kohler-Andrae State Park on Saturday night.  It’s only three miles from our house, which was perfect.  First, though, we had to go back to the dealership to get Ayla.  We had to drop her off a week ago when we discovered that one of the outlets didn’t work.   Once back home, we packed her up and headed over to the campground.  It’s a very popular park, making it hard to get a reservation there during a lot of the year.  We were lucky enough to get a campsite before they all filled up.  Site 62 isn’t the best site out of them all, but it was pretty decent.

Boondocking, Off the grid, Off the cord, Dry Camping or Wild Camping (if you’re European) are all names for camping or RV’ing without any hook ups (water, electric or sewer).  Boondocking is probably the most popular term but our personal favorite is Wild Camping, not just because it sounds cool but because it embodies what it is all about…out in the wild, camping.

If you plan to take a serious RV road trip, a GPS is a “must own” device. We recently bought our second portable GPS unit. Our GPS is a Garmin 2455LMT and after testing it for several weeks, we are pleased with it. Over the past few years, GPS prices have dropped and features have increased. That’s the cool thing about technology – it always gets better and cheaper. The 2455LMT does the trick, with free maps & traffic to boot. (Click the pic for more info.)

We chose this standalone unit instead for a few reasons. We wanted a dedicated GPS unit that’s alway ...Read more...
