Glacier National Park

We have completed the three big, we've never seen, national parks for the year.  Glacier was a great way to end of this part of our summer travels.  Termed "crown of the continent", this million+ park features amazing evidence of the power of uplift and ice on the earth's surface.  These towering mountains were cut deeply by thousand...

Grand Tetons National Park

This Yellowstone Region is filled with amazing sights as the power of nature exposes itself at every turn.   The Grand Tetons range is only about 50 miles long, but at its highest, the peak rises to over 13,000 feet.  As tectonic plates slammed against each other the mountains were formed and the surrounding land slid downw...

Yellowstone National Park, Days 4 & 5

‚ÄčOK, we are convinced this is definitely a must-see park.  As the park ranger stated yesterday, while we awaited Old Faithful to erupt, this is why the park was created in 1872.  Over half the world's geysers are contained within this park.  What historians have phrased "America's best idea", (the national parks) certa...

Yellowstone, Day 3

Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.  That's the name of this magnificent gorge carved by the Yellowstone River over the last 500,000 years (give or take a few).  The hike down to lower falls provided an amazing view and opportunity to feel the power of the water crashing over the edge.  Unfortunately, the lack of funds for national park...

Yellowstone NP, Day 2

We're set up in the Grizzly RV Resort in West Yellowstone, MT.  The western entrance, we're told by the park rangers, is the busiest entrance.  It looks like the best location to access features in the park if you want full hook-ups.  Fishing Bridge RV Park, in the national park, is closed this year for renovation.   On day...

Yellowstone National Park

Matt--Russ-upper-geyser-basin-1 Matt & Russ at Firehole pool in Yellowstone.

We've started our adventures in the nation's first national park.  Russ spent 38 years with the National Park Service, but never made it to the "grand daddy of them all."  We're going to share some photos and stories as we explore this incredible landscape.  Yellowstone NP is over two million acres, so we won't see most of it.  ...

Our Wonderful History: The CCC

Who do we have to thank for so many of our beautiful state parks? President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the young men of the Civilian Conservation Corps, that's who. And there is a wonderful museum to honor those people at Highlands Hammock State Park in Sebring, Florida where we camped last week. Forest fire at camp The heat kept most campers aw...

Pala Casino, San Diego CA 2018

St Pats is March 17 but we celebrated it two weeks early this year. Naming an event is mostly a way to give it character before the characters show up to camp. We set up Pala Indian Casino for this years StPats SoCal event. Tim and the caterer set the theme and decked the halls. I am so glad he likes to decorate because it sets a mood and makes the...

RVers are the Nicest People

RVers are the Nicest People

One thing that Donald and I have noticed is that for the most part, the people we run into in RV parks are some of the nicest people. Of course the Rainbow RV rallies involve some of the nicest people we know, however, when we venture off on our own for either a weekend getaway or holiday week, we have noticed that the people around us are just more relaxed and have a carefree attitude about life. Perhaps it is because of the type of  resorts we go to or is it because by nature, the people who we run into are on vacation and therefore, much more relaxed. We love going for frequent walks and seeing all the different types of RVs and getting to know the park, and almost every single time, we get frequent "hellos", "how are you" or even strike up conversations. Just an observation that I wanted to share to see if any of you have had similar experiences. Anyway, we just signed up for the Temecula Wine Rally in June which is kind of silly because we literally live about 7 miles from the RV park, but again, there is something magical and cathartic when we go on a trip, even if it is in our backyard! Looking forward to reconnecting with existing friends and looking forward to making new friends as well!

Driving the coast! PCH to San Fransisco & back to the desert

Happy Holidays!  We are heading up & down the southern coast, from palm springs to san fransisco & back!  May not be exciting to you, but we are STOKED!!  Please, any one that has done this that may have words of wisdom, chime in.  It's a week, and seems like enough time to get a real sense of the PCH.  Maybe not.  We're reaching out to anyone that might by chance be doing the same thing or has done it & has irresistable advice or recommendations.  Driving a 24' Tioga dark gray with a golden retriever at the helm.  Peace!
