YOUR OWN PRIVATE IDAHO

 

It’s 8 o’clock on a sunny Saturday morning. We’re happily camping at the McCall RV Resort in the sweet mountain town of McCall, Idaho and life at this moment could not be better. Winter camping for us is prime time and we adore it. Outdoor winter snow sports beckon us outside and the warmth of our cozy trailer at the end of the day is a treat in and of itself.

SNOW CHASERS

 

Outside our window, a squirrel scurries over the golden brown pine needles covering the ground. What snow was blanketing the ground when we arrived has since melted and we’ve been anxiously checking the weather forecast every day hoping for a winter storm to hit. No such luck. But our house has wheels and we will find snow. It would have been a bummer to have booked an expensive stay in a hotel for a ski trip. Thank you RV!

 

 

While we haven’t had the snow we had hoped for, we have had beautiful weather with clear blue skies nearly every day. We’ve taken advantage of the mild temperatures by getting out for a little exploration.

A NEW ENGLAND RV ADVENTURE

Editor’s note: Heather K. has been RVing for a couple of years, and in that time she has traveled to 15 states, RVed with friends across the country, and fell in love with RVing as a way of life. She loves traveling with her husband and two kids, but drags her friends into any travel opportunity possible. Her motto is always, “the more the merrier.”  You can find her adventures on her blog Mamas Spot.

As the leaves start changing and cool crisp air rolls in I start getting antsy to hit the road and soak it all in. It’s time to leave the city and see some amazing fall beauty. The place I want to be whisked away to is New England, for it has some of the best foliage in the world. The best way, and in my opinion, the only way to see all that New England has to offer is by RV. There is no better way to revel in the most unforgettable trip you will ever take. If you haven’t seen fall foliage in New England you haven’t really seen fall and if you haven’t done it in an RV you haven’t done it right! When visiting New England in the fall you will want to give yourself at least a week to do it. We decided to embark on our journey mid-October; going at this time had its challenges and its upsides. We found that a lot of the RV campgrounds have closed by the beginning of October or sooner, but that didn’t stop us from having a great time, and with more RV campgrounds closed it just meant that we weren’t fighting our way through other tourists.

FALL FESTIVALS WITH RV COMFORT

I’ve always felt a bit different than most people I know because as the days grow colder and shorter, I get more excited. These changes signal my favorite time of the year − fall. There’s so much to look forward to: colors, food, friends, family and festivals. This year, New England was the backdrop to many of my RV fall adventures. Fall is much more than just beautiful leaves and crisp air. It’s a time to visit some amazing fall festivals which we knew was a must for our trip to New England. Some of the best festivals are food festivals where you can sample all the local flavors in one spot.
