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?
One of the events that we’d had on our schedule for months was the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. It’s one of the biggest bluegrass festivals in the country and has an awesome vibe. It’s a four day festival but we only got to go on Sunday. The sun was shining, the scenery was beautiful, the beer… Read More Telluride, Colorado
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
On some of our other Solar Panel posts I’ve mentioned Handy Bob Solar as a good resource for people thinking about adding solar panels to their RVs. I recently was re-reading some of his stuff and realized that it isn’t very beginner friendly and some of his advice is getting out of date. So here… Read More Handy Bob Solar Summary
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
It’s been a while since our last update about where we are and what we’ve been doing so let me get you up to speed. We last left off in Salida, CO staying in the alley behind our friend’s house. Our stay there was excellent as usual. We also were able to get some packages… Read More Vail and the GoPro Mountain Games
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
One of the highlights of our Ruby-Horsethief rafting trip a couple weeks ago was the first side hike we got to do. I had heard about this awesome hike to the second largest concentration of natural stone arches in the world after Arches National Park and was really interested in it, but there wasn’t a… Read More Ruby-Horsethief Rafting – Rattlesnake Canyon Hike
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!
