grilling and smoking oh yeah!

I have a passion for smoking meats and grilling in general and I’ve got an awesome grill for at home. But I’ve tried three portable grills for our various RV’s that were really frustrating to use because of uneven temps. Those grills ended up in yard sales or the recycle bin over the years. I’ve shopped around and came close to pulling the trigger on … Continue reading grilling and smoking oh yeah!

basements, you can take it with you!

One of the features on my RV shopping list was basement storage, as big, as much as I could get. One of the things I loved about the Bounders were the big compartments and basement doors. Granted the gas RV basements don’t hold a candle to the Diesel RV’s, but the Bounder is one model that had some of the biggest basements I could find. … Continue reading basements, you can take it with you!

Pinterest has turned out to be an awesome way to organize and map photos of places I’ve been to and places I’d like to see. With the map on Pinterest I can zoom in on the areas we are travelling to and get some great ideas on the fly rather than trying to plan too far ahead. With 650 locations as of October 2015, I thought … Continue reading pinterest for RV trip planning???

urban campout as your DD?

Our good friend Mark threw a birthday bash for his wife Holly and performed along with the Spotlight Band and topped the night with a special song for Holly. They invited those with RV’s to do an urban camp out, that was better than having a Designated Driver! Normally May can be quite warm at night so we were thrilled to see Phoenix having a cold spell with … Continue reading urban campout as your DD?

camping in or near Yosemite

On our way to Oregon we knew we wanted to make Yosemite one of our stops. I didn’t have much luck finding campgrounds prior to the trip and the ones I did find needed reservations far ahead of our trip, we didn’t have a date settled until about 3 weeks before leaving home. Due to high temps this summer, we came in on Highway 41 … Continue reading camping in or near Yosemite
