RV SPRING CHECKS YOU DON’T WANT TO FORGET

When your RV sits in storage for an extended period of time many unexpected things can occur. Batteries that were fully charged when you parked the RV are now discharged, tires that were properly inflated are now under-inflated, seams and sealants crack and separate from the surface, and insects and rodents build nests in and around the RV.

 

 

There are other concerns too, that can come from where the RV was stored, and how it was prepared for storage. If the RV was stored outside, exposed to the elements, the exterior and roof can suffer the brunt of Mother Nature’s harsh winter conditions. And, if you did not properly winterize the RV water system, there could be damage to the plumbing.

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.

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!

IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR

Editor’s Note: Together with her husband and young son, Monica Bennett seeks out non-stop RVing adventures and culinary discoveries in the Pacific Northwest.  Her travels on the road inspires her work as a photographer and writer for her blog, “Just 5 More Minutes,” where she shares her passion for cooking in her RV, demonstrates creative d.i.y. crafting projects and writes about mastering the art of RVing domesticity.  The RVing lifestyle is Monica’s escape from her 9-5 as a graphic designer in busy corporate America.   

From the East Coast to the West Coast and all across our land, there is no question that the holiday season is upon us.

The anticipation of holiday celebrations are enough to make children, both young and old giddy with excitement.  There are cakes to be baked, gifts to be wrapped, decorations to be hung and lights to be strung.  Traditions both old and new run strong this time of year.

One of our family traditions is adventuring with our trailer here in the Pacific Northwest, specifically to the San Juan Islands of Washington state.  We board the ferry, sit back and if we are lucky, have some pretty incredible wild life viewing opportunities.  If you ever come, make sure to bring your binoculars.  It’s an experience you wouldn’t want to miss.
