FATHER’S DAY TRIP

One of the biggest benefits of RVing is making lifelong memories, but like most African Americans, I didn’t grow up RVing or camping.  Therefore, I just don’t have those childhood memories or pictures from camping trips. I’m not sad about that. I guess I’ve kind of taken extra joy in taking my own kids to do something I wasn’t exposed to as a kid.

 

With Father’s Day approaching, I decided to take a trip down memory lane and started going through some pictures of my kids. After an hour of looking at pictures I came across one of me as a very young child with my dad, my older brother and sister. We were posed in front of Mammoth Cave.

VIRGINIA IS FOR LOVERS

They say that Virginia is for lovers and it’s true. Lovers of national parks, hiking, scenic overlooks, nature watching, cavern exploring and night sky star gazing! Virginia is the place for all of those things. I had the opportunity a few weeks ago to do a four day getaway to the beautiful Shenandoah Valley in Virginia.

Shenandoah National Park is one that I have often gone to as a day tripper when visiting friends in Front Royal, Virginia which is at the northern most end of the national park that runs north to south in the rolling hills of Virginia.  Its 105 mile Skyline Drive along the ridge is a great place to take a Sunday drive, stopping at the many scenic overlooks along the way. I had always wanted to spend more than a few hours there and get a little further south along Skyline Drive to capture some of the beautiful vistas there.

FAMILY NEXT DOOR IN DOOR COUNTY, WISCONSIN

It’s always such a great feeling to pull into a new campsite, but it’s even better when your neighbors for the week are people you love!

 

 

My mom and dad are RVers too. A few months ago we made plans to meet up with them, my sister, and her kids to go RVing in Door County, Wisconsin where we would wrap up our summer Great Lakes tour. We were all excited having never been to Door County and we enjoy RVing together as a family. This past spring we all met up to Go RVing in Mississippi and Louisiana.
