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!
In April we took a trip to Laughlin with a bunch of friends, we call the Happy Hour crew. Five of the HH couples booked rooms at the Colorado Belle casino on this trip. We originally we planned to car pool in the Bounder, but in the end we opted to caravan in four vehicles instead. I’m sure there were concerns about a break down … Continue reading captain Jenny, rollin on the river…
First weekend of April we were able to meet up with Mike & Michelle again before they left southern Arizona. They were staying at McDowell Mountain Park again as it was one of their favorites with the many trails to ride bikes or take some walks. I don’t know where the time went, we only got in one bike ride, a couple walks and another … Continue reading time flies…

Since it was so close to all of us, Jeff and Megan met up with us there. This was the first time Alice & I have seen the caverns, M&M were there last year … Continue reading step away from the Sloth!

We did the cruise for our 30th anniversary, almost 10 years ago but I was cracking up at how many campground photos I had and thought I’d share here. It was … Continue reading castles and campgrounds in Germany
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???
We spent much of the day waiting for the RV repairs in Mojave, so we only made it as far as Needles instead of Williams. Because of that we literally stumbled upon Fenders RV Resort on the banks of the Colorado River. It was late, dark and we couldn’t find any places (with hookups for A/C) after driving past Fenders. From the road, in the dark it … Continue reading a river front gem in Needles California
