Oh…the smell of fresh cut grass, the sounds of children at play and of course the anticipation of your next RV trip takes the stage. I’m sure you will want your RV in great shape for your first adventure of the season and here are some tips to help you Spring into action!
When I was growing up, vacations consisted of long road trips in the family van. Though I will always cherish those memories, after days of eating food out of a box or whatever we could get from a drive-through window, the meals on these vacations left much to be desired. I love that traveling with an RV means no more eating out for every meal or settling for peanut butter sandwiches day after day. However, I won’t deny that packing food and meal planning can be time consuming and quite stressful as you prepare for your trip.
Congratulations! You purchased your first RV, are ready to join the RV lifestyle and head out on your first outing. Before you excitedly head out on your first trip, take some time to prepare yourself and your RV to assure a successful inaugural campout.
Chances are you are making your way back from a great adventure and just ran into some winter weather. Or maybe you intended to be in the elements and enjoy the ambiance of the winter season. Whatever the situation, don’t take that journey without listening to a few tips that could help make your winter RV driving travels safer and more enjoyable.
The Pacific Northwest is a great place for an active RVer. Within a couple of hours you and your family can be at the beach, high in the Cascade Mountains, or on the arid east side of the Cascades. Exploration and recreation opportunities abound in these three distinct geographical regions and there is no better place to learn about all the things to see and do via an RV than the 2018 Seattle RV Show!
Let’s look at just a few items you will discover at the show highlighting the Pacific Northwest.
With the enjoyment and busyness of Christmas and New Year’s celebrations behind us, we are now entering that time of year when I start to get antsy for a vacation. There aren’t any major holidays for a few months and though I definitely love the winter weather, there are times when I feel like getting a quick dose of summer in the middle of the season. With no vacations on the horizon and our trailer winterized until spring, now is the time to start planning ahead, getting prepared and giving myself a vacation to look forward to. By taking the time now to secure a location, get a jump start on my packing list and update the trailer’s inventory, I can then look forward to our vacation with ease knowing it’s all taken care of.
Unlike other northern states that experience sub-freezing temperatures during most of the winter, Northwest RVers with access to the coastline can enjoy winter camping compliments of the Pacific Ocean and the temperate winter weather it provides.
Here is a suggestion for a place to camp and outdoor activities to enjoy this winter:
Washington Park in Anacortes offers a year-round campground that features 68 campsites, with 46 of those containing water and 30 amp electrical service. All campsites include a campfire ring and picnic table under set in a heavily wooded conifer forest. Given the heavy tree cover, late winter sunrises and all the outdoor activities you will be enjoying in or nearby the park, sleeping in will not be a problem during your stay!
As first-time parents of a 7-month-old baby, my husband and I are far from being classified as seasoned parents. However, when it comes to traveling with a baby, we seem to have become seasoned quite quickly. Though we haven’t ventured on any extensive or exotic vacations with our little one, he’s already seen plenty of trips in our trailer from our tiny town to the big city to visit family and even a vacation to the ocean this summer. While I continue to love the incredible help our trailer is when traveling with a baby, through trial and error we have found some great products designed for traveling with a baby that have made our travels so much easier and more enjoyable for all of us. I’ve come up with a list of our top 10 favorite baby products to travel with.
