Outfitting a Camper

Outfitting a Camper

It has been over a year since we bought our Jayco 26BH. When I started shopping for a camper, I really had no idea what it would take to get properly outfitted and ready for our adventures. I did a lot of research; talking to experienced campers and asking questions on the Trailer Life forums. […]

Pocahantes State Park

Pocahantes State Park

We recently took a trip to Pocahantes State Park. Pochantes is near Richmond, VA. At almost 8,000 acres, it is the largest Virginia State Park. It is a very popular park as it is only about a two hour drive from anywhere in the Eastern part of Virginia. We arrived the weekend before Memorial weekend […]

Jellystone Caledonia

Jellystone Caledonia

I was looking for a campground near Milwaukee. It turns out that there are surprisingly few good places to camp in the area. I say surprising because this area has a wealth of state and local parks and many tourist attractions. I opted to stay at Jellystone in Caledonia, which is South of the city. […]

Roosevelt National Park and Medora ND

Roosevelt National Park and Medora ND

The Spirit of the West. By the time I reached Medora, North Dakota, I had spent over a month traveling through much of the Western United States. Each place I visited was a great place. But, the place that really seemed to capture ‘The West’ was Medora, North Dakota. Medora is a small town in […]

Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park

Of all the National Parks I visited in 2010, Glacier National Park was the wildest, most rugged place. Other parks might have a taller peak, bigger river, or deeper canyon. But, Glacier is different. Glacier is a little bit canyon – like the Grand Canyon, but formed by Glaciers so different. It is a little […]

Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park

You would think that the photo I would use to show off Yellowstone would be Old Faithful. True, I did see Old Faithful blow. Twice in fact. And it was very impressive. But the thing about Yellowstone is that there is so much more to it that just one geyser. I spent only two days […]

Norwegian Sky Review

Norwegian Sky Review

I recently sailed on the Norwegian Sky on a three night cruise in the Bahamas. Large ship cruises can be a relaxing vacation. You wake up each day in a new and interesting place but each night you have all the great food and entertainment of a resort. This was my fifth cruise; two on […]

Grand Teton National Park

Grand Teton National Park

I stayed at the Colter Bay campground in Grand Teton National Park in July 2010. I had heard from several people that this was their favorite national park. I had to see it. As it turned out, it became one of my favorite parks, too. While much smaller than Yellowstone, it is also much easier […]

Cherry Hill

Cherry Hill

Cherry Hill is a campground and water park in Kayesville, UT, just North of Salt Lake City. I had the chance to stay here a few nights in July 2010. Looking for a good stopover between the Hoover Dam and Yellowstone, this looked like the perfect stop.  As I researched a trip out West, I wasn’t […]
