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.

5 REASONS TO RV WITH YOUR FAMILY IN THE WINTER

We’re big believers that there’s no reason to put an RV away for the winter season, so why not grab the family and hit the road? Our photographer friend Jeffrey Eatley did just that and took his family on an RV adventure over the holidays throughout New Mexico.

Here’s our countdown of the top 5 reasons RV winter travel can be a great getaway for the entire family:

The snow-dusted scenery

Imagine waking up to your little one just discovering a fresh blanket of fluffy snow shining in the winter sunlight steps from where they slept. Nothing beats the undisturbed beauty of it all!

 

 

 

The sights you’ll have to yourselves

Not everyone is as adventurous as you are, so the winter can be the perfect time for the family to sightsee without the crowds! And if it’s really cold, at least you’ll have the comfort and warmth of your RV to bring coziness to the expedition.

THE NORTHWESTERN-MOST POINT OF THE CONTIGUOUS USA

 

It’s five o’clock on a Friday before a long four day weekend and I’m clocking out.  “Have a great road trip, Monica!” my colleagues tell me as I happily walk towards the front door with a spring in my step and a grin on my face. They have witnessed countless times my cocoon to butterfly-like transformation when I turn from a nine-to-five workaholic into a weekend RVing warrior.

This weekend, I’m packing up the family and escaping my nine-to-five with a well-deserved trip with our travel trailer. We’re heading to the northwestern-most point of the contiguous USA. Our first stop on the way is the quaint Victorian town of Port Townsend with a perfect RV site at the Point Hudson Marina & RV Park.

A NEW YEAR FOR NEW ADVENTURES

 

Fresh starts. New beginnings. A clean slate.

 

 

We rung in the New Year quietly around the RV table with sparkling cider and a family game. We spent some time contemplating the adventures of 2014 and shared our desires for a meaningful 2015.

 

Yes, the New Year is here and with it comes a chance to make this year the best yet. Some people fill their New Year with resolutions for exercising more and eating healthy. Those are all great things (I’m cutting down on sugar myself!) but this year we have a challenge for you.

A FRESH START MEANS FRESH TRAVELS

Happy New Year, everyone! With the holidays behind us, and months of winter still to go, is there a better time to plan this year’s traveling adventures?

Work towards your traveling goals. It’s too easy to put off our dreams for another year. Life is short and there are so many places to travel. Decide where you want to go this year and start making concrete plans. This is your year!
