One Year Anniversary of Full Time RVing

One Year Anniversary of Full Time RVing

As of September, we have been living in our RV for a year! We picked up our Grand Design Reflection travel trailer last September in Tampa, Florida. It still feels really comfortable and we are very happy with the model we chose. Winter in Florida was wonderful and we look forward to getting back there in October. The trip to Yellowstone was also amazing. We are happy we took the route we did because we got to see so much….

Another Quick Update

Another Quick Update

Craig and I decided to try and keep our original plans to start full time RVing this fall. We are going to take a trip to Florida in May to look at several RV dealers, a few RV parks and see what seasonal positions may be opening up for the fall/winter season.  We have been busy clearing out our living space. Every day we sell, give away and donate clothing and other items. Furniture will be listed in August. We…

Quick Update 

Quick Update 

2016 was an amazing year! Craig and I got to visit 4 new national parks (Glacier, Everglades, Biscayne and Dry Tortugas) and revisit 2 of our favorites (Grand Teton and Yellowstone.) We also had a great camping weekend with friends in Acadia National Park and hiked a must do-the Precipice Trail. Our plans for full time RVing are a bit up in the air now with probable changes coming to the ACA. We will keep our eye on what happens…

Two New Books

Two New Books

I am reading two new books that I thought you all might enjoy. Here is the description for The Hour of Land: “America’s national parks are breathing spaces in a world in which such spaces are steadily disappearing, which is why more than 300 million people visit the parks each year. Now Terry Tempest Williams, the author of the environmental classic Refuge and the beloved memoir When Women Were Birds, returns with The Hour of Land, a literary celebration of…

Full Time RV Route Planning

Full Time RV Route Planning

After we decided on a date of 2018 for full time RVing, I have been planning a route. I think I have a good plan for our first year! I have been using Road Trippers again since it is pretty easy to map out a route online. Then the info shows up in the app on my phone. It is a rough draft right now since campsites are still too far out to book in a lot of the areas….

Smash Books For Memory Keeping

Smash Books For Memory Keeping

  I was trying to think of a way to keep our ticket stubs, park and hotel maps and trail guides that would not take up a lot of space. Then I read about Smash Books. Since Craig and I want to travel around full time in an RV soon, we are trying to get rid of a lot of our “stuff.” We have been going through books, clothing, prints and picture frames and selling, giving away or donating them….

National Park Stamps

National Park Stamps

After learning about the National Parks Passport program, we did some more research on the stamps and where to get them. The program was launched in 1986 to encourage people to visit the National Parks. Most parks and landmarks do have stamps, but it is  a voluntary program. We have found our stamps in the visitors centers and gift shops. There is usually a little section with a desk set up and the stamp and stamp pad out. They sometimes…

National Parks Passport

National Parks Passport

In September 2013 my husband Craig and I went to an event at the Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site in Saugus, MA.  At the visitor center and gift shop, I noticed a whole section for National Park Passports. I had never seen them before. For years Craig and I had wanted to visit Yellowstone, Yosemite and our other National Parks. We decided that day to buy one of the passports and make it our goal to visit as many…
