The further south we journeyed in Texas, the warmer I expected it to get on our winter camping adventure. But instead we discovered that even southern Texas can experience freezing temperatures from time to time. Thus our plans for “fun in the sun” on Texas beaches were muffled by winter coats, hoods, and mittens, and instead we found ourselves looking for inside entertainment–and heaters. But whether

We spent three days exploring Waco on our winter Texas adventure and we wish we’d had more time since there was much more to discover. We loved Waco’s city environment–it had a very approachable and hometowny feel to it, which made it a great place to explore with kiddos in tow.

As we plotted our winter adventure to Texas, the one thing we repeatedly heard and read is that a trip to Texas must include at least some time spent in the Hill Country. After exploring from Austin to Corpus Christi, we
As the summer 2016 camping season winds down this weekend, I know many of you are looking forward to your fall camping plans. (We sure can’t wait until our October trip!) But as you enjoy cooler days and colorful foliage, it’s also a good time to start thinking about your winter escape plans, errr, winter travel plans. Last March we escaped to North Carolina’s Outer Banks and discovered that even in
So there is no way around it: This post is going to be a bit long. 🙂 But that’s because there’s just so much to experience in the Outer Banks. We spent a week there–we needed a month.

A National Geographic article inspired our camping trip to Ohio’s Amish Country this month, but we had big plans to soak up more than just the beautiful autumn colors. And whether you are planning to camp or not, a weekend in Amish Country has lots to offer the whole family. We had a few ideas of places we wanted to visit while staying in Holmes County, but
Our visit to the Black Hills of South Dakota in 2015 was our favorite stop along our Wild West adventure. The region is rich with natural wonders, man-made marvels, and roadside Americana. It’s a great place to bring the whole family–with enough variety to keep everyone a happy camper. (Plus, it is home to one of the BEST campgrounds we have ever stayed at: Click here to find
We recently returned from our 2015 West Trip, during which time we visited nine states and nine campgrounds in 21 days! We enjoyed reading your comments over on the Instagram and Facebook posts that Kristin updated during our travels. But since that was just a snapshot of our adventures, we sifted through the additional few 1,700 photos to put together a short slideshow of the places we visited and campgrounds where we stayed.
We marked the start of our 2015 Wild West adventure with a stop at the RV/MH Hall of Fame in Elkhart, Ind. What a fun place to visit if you are a camping enthusiast! The RV museum is home to dozens of vintage campers–many of which you can walk through. Located just off I-80, the hall of fame would make a great place to stretch your
