Learning to Sail

I used to dream of sailing. I wanted to pull away from shore, using the power of the wind, following an ancient way of traveling. But, I just didn’t know how to get started. You might feel that way, too. So, I thought I would share a few ideas on how you can get started….

Bethpage

Bethpage calls itself a Camp Resort. That is a pretty true description – it is hard to think of staying there as camping – it is more like staying in your camper at a resort. We had the chance to stay at Bethpage Camp Resort in Urbanna Virginia recently. It was a really fun place…

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

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…
