St. Ignace, MI. Tiki RV Park. St. Ignace is just over the bridge from Mackinaw City, MI. It sits on the edge of Lake Huron. Everywhere you go you see the beauty of the water, marina, and lighthouse. The downtown is a beautiful place along the waterfront. We spent 11 days there for the 4th of July.

HOW TO TRAVEL AMERICA ON 2K A MONTH

Let me be totally honest for a second, there was a time during our travels when our bank account hit $67. It was September 2014 and we had no idea how we would finish our trip to all fifty states. Heck, we had no idea if we would be able to buy groceries.

 

The biggest hurdle to traveling is universal: finances.

OUR RV, OUR ADVENTURE BASE CAMP

Our RV, which we call “Lance,” is small.

Some of our family and friends don’t get it. When they learn we could have bought an RV 3 times as big for the same price, we get asked, “are you crazy??!!

But honestly, we prefer the simplicity of a small motorhome. It’s small enough that we’ve been forced to get rid of everything unnecessary and just travel with the basics. That alone is a pretty liberating feeling.

Besides, we didn’t get an RV to get IN there, we got an RV to get OUT there. We’re hikers and bikers and winter adventure lovers, so Lance is a convenient basecamp for all our outdoor pursuits.  Some of those places are pretty remote, and an RV any bigger than a campervan can’t always make the trek.

Here’s a look at three of our recent outdoor activities where Lance became the perfect adventure basecamp.

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.

HOW TO PLAN A ROAD TRIP USING PINTEREST

When it comes to planning a road trip, Pinterest isn’t the number one source that comes to mind. Aside from the fact that Pinterest is a great place to get lost in a sea of copycat recipes and makeshift tutorials, it also can be an incredible resource for planning your next road trip adventure.

Some of the most beautiful places we’ve visited in the past three years of RVing I’ve found because of Pinterest, like this awesome sight on the coast of Oregon called Thor’s Well.
