Spring has sprung, and I know many of you in the North are counting down the weekends until you can pull those sleepy campers from their long winter’s rest and hit the road again. As you get ready for the camping season by organizing the camper and loading things back in, here’s some important information to keep in mind so you don’t inadvertently overload your
Last week we shared how storing our camper in the South saved us time and money this winter. And while this plan worked out really well for us, having a camper in storage forced me to prep and pack entirely different from the way I typically get ready for our camping trips. Usually our camper is parked right next to our garage, so loading the RV
Last year as we plotted RVing trips to the South over Thanksgiving, New Year’s, and spring break, we had this random idea: What if we just left the camper in the South at an RV storage spot all winter? It would definitely save ourselves the hassle of hauling the camper back and forth through the mountains (in the winter!) each time. But we were also
Last year when my parents and brother moved to the Greenville, S.C., area (setting up roots not far from where my sister’s family and aunt and uncle already lived), we knew we were going to need to find a spot to regularly camp so we could visit them as often as possible. We soon discovered, though, that finding a nearby Greenville campground–that offered full hook
Although it’s currently 64 degrees outside here in Western PA, earlier this week we had a cold snap and the temperatures dipped into the freezing zone. So Jarrett found himself winterizing the camper in the dark … and rain. It certainly wasn’t ideal, but definitely better than risking frozen pipes. Since many of you have been working to winterize your own campers, we thought you
As our nation rises out of the ashes of wildfires and the recurring devastation of multiple hurricanes, Jarrett and I find ourselves feeling pretty inadequate to do something to help. What we want to do is hop over a few states and start rolling up our sleeves to assist with the cleanup and rebuilding that will need to happen before countless families can resume normalcy.
Earlier this summer I had a thought: What if on our camping trips we could find a way to spread the gift of kindness and gratitude? What if at each campground stop we did one little thing to bless someone else? This idea all started earlier this summer on a camping trip while I was reading The Broken Way. Author Ann Voskamp challenged her readers to
Ever since we started towing about six years ago with the GMC Savana, Jarrett has had a love/hate relationship with our tow mirrors. While some tow vehicles offer the option of adding an extra tow package with special extended mirrors, this was not available for our van. That left us looking for an after-market solution–which turned out to be harder than we had initially expected.
Looking for some fresh new ideas for simple and delicious gluten-free camping meals? Then you’ve come to the right place! Ever since our son started eating a gluten-free diet, it’s been a challenge to rework our eating habits, especially when we hit the road for our RVing adventures. Little by little, though, I’ve been working to build a recipe collection of gluten-free camping meal ideas.
