Winter in an RV

RV Life and … Late Winter in Steamboat

RV Life and … Late Winter in Steamboat

 RV Life allows you to be where you want to be – when you want to be there. For me, that means being in the Colorado Rockies, enjoying WINTER, and skiing nearly every day from late November until Spring arrives. (Click each image to see a larger view) Steamboat Springs in late February, early March […]

Winter in the Colorado Rockies while living in my RV

Winter in the Colorado Rockies while living in my RV

Sometimes I feel like I have to pinch myself to confirm its all really real.  That “sensation” has occurred a few times in the past week!  With a TON of early season snow and some “professional development” work at a world-class ski area, the stage was really set for one (or more) “peak” experiences. Allow […]

Memorial Day Weekend in Wyoming – Not your “typical” first weekend of Summer…

Dateline May 24, 2015 – Casper, Wyoming (well at least the starting and ending point!) Memorial Day weekend “back home” was a time to “hit the shore” and hope for hot weather (and typically COLD ocean water)… what shore? Need you ask?! The Jersey shore! That was the Memorial Day weekend ritual of my youth […]

RV Sales – It’s Like a “Pit Stop”…

Two weeks in and the shiny new RV’s are lined up across the street from my office – all begging for owners to hitch them to their vehicles and take them to all kinds of neat places. Fifth wheels, travel trailers, and toy haulers, each offering their own lifestyle reach out to those who yearn […]

A slate grey sky and near freezing temperatures…

Travel across Wyoming can be an experience at virtually any time of the year, but to consider beginning the “RV travel season” in the 3rd week of March is a decision anyone would be right to question!     I left Steamboat on March 22. My last day “on snow” was March 21, and given […]

An Autumn Visit to Bear Lake

An Autumn Visit to Bear Lake

Bear Lake Tranquility I can still recall going to the Jersey shore after Labor Day. The crowds are gone, especially a couple of weeks beyond that “traditional end of summer” holiday. Along with the crowds went the “beach checkers” to insure you paid your five bucks to enjoy a bit of nature, the lifeguards who insured […]

RV Life During the Harvest Season

RV Life During the Harvest Season

RV Life for those of us who “full-time” transitions quickly after Labor Day to an entirely new season… Harvest Season This is especially true if you’re in the north or the mountain states. The long, and often hot days of summer quickly yield to shorter days, wide open campgrounds (the kids are back in school!), […]

The “Wilson” is set up… and optimized to the greatest extent possible. If you have no idea what a “Wilson” is, thats ok, I didn’t either a few days ago! A Wilson is a phone signal extender/amplifier. In my case it has bridged the gap between zero access to the Verizon network and “minimal” access.  […]
