Did you know that Mesa Verde is the only National Park in the U.S. dedicated to the history of humans? It’s true! It makes Mesa Verde not only beautiful, as most parks are, but also unique and powerful. I’ll do my best to tell you about it, but you should definitely visit here if you… Read More Mesa Verde National Park
Way back in May and June of 2016, when we first hit the road, we were really deer in the headlights. I’m not saying that we are seasoned vets now, but we have settled in to road life. Not surprisingly, it takes quite a while to really find your rhythm and preferences for traveling. But,… Read More Year 2 Mindset- What’s Changed?
Nik is being slow with his Telluride post so I am skipping him. Ouray! Ouray is in the Southwestern mountains of CO. It’s pronounced “YOUR-ay” and has incredible steep mountains on all sides. You feel like you are sitting at the bottom staring up in any direction you turn. Prior to European-Americans settling in the… Read More Ouray, Colorado
We visited Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park a couple weeks ago. It’s a newer park- it was upgraded from a National Monument to a National Park in 1999. It’s not very large, but it is VERY striking. We explored the South Rim, which had some good BLM land for camping nearby. It was… Read More Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park
On our way from Vail to Montrose, we spent a night in Rifle, CO. I knew next to nothing about it, other than it was roughly halfway down the road. We spent our first night in a Walmart parking lot, which was actually far more pleasant than I was expecting. The next day while Nik… Read More Rifle Falls State Park
This post will be a little bit different from the usual here on The Reckless Choice. Six months ago, I pulled a muscle while working as a ski instructor. It turned into a rare and painful condition. Today is my 29th birthday. I’m healthy again, and I just went for my first post-injury trail run.… Read More Sympathetically Maintained Pain: My Story
I love to cook. And, as an added bonus, I’m decent at it (or so I’m told). I enjoy a good challenge when it comes to cooking and learning new things in the kitchen, and boy, is RV cooking a good challenge! In theory, you can cook anything in an RV that you can cook… Read More Cooking in an RV
Hi! We have cleaned up our blog a bit to make it easier for you to find posts you’d like to read. Look up top to see the new drop down menus. I also went through every single old post (which was a fun little trip down memory lane) and added categories and tags to… Read More Blog Navigation Update!
After our stationary winter in Winter Park, we have hit the road once again. We celebrated our first anniversary of RV life on May 18, which is so wild! After packing up, we headed to Denver for a few days mostly to get a bunch of chores done that were easier to do in the… Read More Coming Full Circle: Beginning Year 2
We just got back from an awesome 3-day raft trip on the Ruby Horsethief section of the Colorado River. It’s right on the Colorado-Utah border and is a canyon adventure if I’ve ever seen one. Want to plan a trip like this yourself? I have a post for you! We had an amazing time on… Read More How to Plan an Overnight Rafting Trip: Ruby Horsethief edition
