GREAT MARCH ESCAPES IN YOUR RV

 

Escape.  We all need one.  Whether it’s an escape from the pressure of your career, the boredom of routine, or even just an escape from the weather, it’s important to find that place that will make you happy and allow you to return to your life happy, rejuvenated, and with new perspective.  With more than four million miles of road in the United States, the possibilities are endless.  Forget sketchy motels, greasy diner food, and schedules that are impossible to keep.  Only you know what and where your escape is, and you want to be able to customize your trip just for you.  The freedom of RVing is an essential part of finding that escape.

A winter storm was on its way and we pulled into our campsite just in time after a long day’s drive from Park City, Utah to Breckenridge, Colorado.

 

 

It was already starting to snow lightly. The following morning, we awoke to a winter wonderland.

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.

TEN TIPS FOR RVING WITH TEENS AND TWEENS

Hiking in Kenai Fjords National Park

 

It’s a Saturday morning and Brent is playing with our 10-month-old baby who has already been up for a few hours. Meanwhile, our older boys, who are almost 15 and 13, are snoozing like logs in the back of the RV. It’s been said that babies challenge parents physically and teens present a more emotional challenge as they forge their own identities.

 

They grow up too fast!

 

It seems like just yesterday that our two big boys were over the moon excited by the simplest of things like sticks and inchworms. Nowadays, I point out the inchworms while my boys ask questions like, “Is there going to be good Wifi?” The transition from kids to teenagers has required a shift in perspective, a change in expectations, a big dose of empathy (after all we were teenagers once too), and a willingness to just roll with it. The truth is our almost 13-year-old just doesn’t get as excited about the Junior Ranger programs as he did when he was 8 and our almost 15-year-old would rather text than sit through another ranger talk on coyotes. But that doesn’t mean meaningful memories can’t be made; it just means you might have to work a little harder to spark that excitement.

WINTER RVING IN PARK CITY, UTAH!

 

The boys were set up in the back seat and Meow Cow took his place on the center console as we set off on our long drive across Nevada’s high desert from Lake Tahoe, California to Park City, Utah.

 

 

Just after dark on our first night, we pulled into a campground in Winnemucca, Nevada. The next morning, we were pleasantly surprised to awake to views of the surrounding mountains. We took Hope’s suggestion from the Go RVing Facebook page and treated ourselves to breakfast at the The Griddle. It was delicious. Thanks for the recommendation, Hope!
