TAKE A SNEAK PEAK

The Sisters on the Fly will be thrilling the attendees at the Country Living Fair again this year with their beautiful trailers and tales of the road. The Fair takes place at Stone Mountain Park in Georgia the weekend of October 24-26.  The sisters will also be the featured speakers at the Main Stage Saturday afternoon.

If you can’t make it to the fair, take a sneak peak at some of the re-vamped vintage campers the Sisters have created.

This clever trailer belongs to Sister on the Fly #3825, Debbie Smoot. It’s a 1964 Gypsy. Now that’s a ‘canned ham’!

SISTERS

Here’s the front of Debbie’s trailer. It has a front kitchen and a dining table that folds down into a very large bed! So cheerful! I want to stay for lunch!

RV ADVENTURES ON THE ALASKA HIGHWAY

The road began to climb and twist not long after leaving Fort Nelson. It had been a relaxing stop, but we were eager to push on. It was still 1,138 miles until the official end of the Alaska Highway and even farther to Fairbanks.

Although our next stop, Laird Hot Springs, was only a mere 193 miles away, the drive took us all day. This part of the highway was one of the slowest moving; not because of the condition of the road, but because this is where the road passes through the Canadian Rockies.

YOUR GUIDE TO VISITING RV SHOWS. NO GPS REQUIRED.

So you are thinking about buying a new RV, but not sure where to start? Or maybe you are like me and just enjoy looking at all the different types of RVs? It’s always fun to dream.

Whether you are ready to take the plunge or are still in the dreaming phase, visiting an RV show is a great way to see what sort of RVs are out there…all under one roof. From Folding Camping Trailers to Sport Utility RVs and everything in between, you’ll find a little bit of everything. Kind of like going to an RV buffet!

If going to an RV dealership sounds intimidating, try starting with a visit to an RV show. RV shows are designed to be a place where you can leisurely browse through the inventory of many dealers without any pressure. The RVs are open and ready to be explored. If you are serious about purchasing, you’ll be happy to know many dealers offer special sales at the shows.

One of our favorite places to explore is the French Quarter in New Orleans. (link to post?) There is so much to see and surprisingly it's a great place for kids. We've been there twice since hitting the road.

When I think of the word "majestic" Grand Teton National Park comes to mind. The mountains are breathtaking and there is so much to do from boating on the lake, gorgeous drives to look for wildlife, beautiful hiking, or a trip into Jackson.

In our homeschool we talked a lot about the role the Mississippi River played in the development of the United States. It was fun to sit along the banks and watch the freighters in action.

One of the first National Parks we visited was Yosemite in California. It was off season so the weather was a little chilly but it was great because there weren't any large crowds.
