Hi. We’re Erling & Judy with Travel Trail Sail. We love to travel and enjoy the outdoor lifestyle; hiking, sailing or just enjoying a campfire with friends.

In 2010, we took an RV travel sabbatical, heading “Out West” to visit some of America’s most amazing places. We enjoyed camping and sharing our experiences so much, we continued to camp & share. The result is Travel Trail Sail – your Guide for Travel Inspiration where we share our tips & tricks on RV travel, camping & adventure, RV parks & campgrounds, gear reviews, tasty food and fun fitness to keep you ready to enjoy your adventure.

We hope you find this site helpful and look forward to crossing paths with you soon. Enjoy your journey.
