Backtracking to Santispac

We don’t usually backtrack, but we had been unable to get into Santispac for some beach camping on our way north from Cabo  so we went to Mulegé first. There is a caravan that is leaving Santispac by 9 AM,

Everything is “Almost Free” in Cabo San Lucas

It’s only 100 miles today from La Paz to our end destination, Cabo San Lucas. We passed through the usual inland terrain of hills and farms; at Todos Santos we moved back to hug the coast. We did not stop

Autumn Leaves (and so do we)

A Rainy Day Mission in San Antonio, Texas

We don’t usually drive the RV  on long trips in the winter. In the past we have stuck close to Florida, where warm, sunny days are the norm in January and February, and there is no shortage of things to

Looking for Deep Fried Butter in Skowhegan, Maine

Have you ever had deep dried butter? How about chicken fried bacon? If not I imagine you haven’t been to a State Fair lately. There seems to be a philosophy at these fairs that says if you can eat it,

Northern Maine. It’s Not Bar Harbor, It’s Better

It’s just over two hours from our camp in Quebec to Jackman, Maine. Two hours but a world apart. Twenty miles over the border and we’ve traded French, urban, chic for North Woods back county. We arrived at our campground

Lac St. Jean, Quebec: Je Ne Parles Pas Anglais

When we decided to visit Quebec we wanted to see more than just Montreal and Quebec City, so Lac St. Jean seemed a likely destination. This large lake was north of these two cities, deep into the Province, and far

Close Encounters of the Bear-able kind

New Hampshire has lots of wildlife. Most of the time they keep to themselves, hiding in the woods. If you get out early, or late at night you might run into them. Literally. Moose, in particular, can be found just

Wandering Watkins Glen, New York

Leaving Niagara Falls we had several driving options to get us to Long Island where we had a wedding to attend.  Looking at the map we decided to go through the Finger Lakes region of upstate, New York. It’s pretty,

Shabby or Classy? Campground Choices

Picking a campground is pretty straightforward. Traveling the Red Roads in our RV has landed us in hundreds of campgrounds. I can say with complete confidence that not all of them are created equally. Some campgrounds are spacious, well maintained

The Redneck Riviera

I was trying to remember the book I read that originally introduced me to the term the “Redneck Riviera” to describe the beach areas of Florida’s panhandle. It was a long time ago. I remember it was a detective series

So, exactly what do you do all summer in New Hampshire??

Living in an RV means we have no lawns or gardens to tend to. Cleaning and maintaining a 300 square foot vehicle doesn’t take all that long. We don’t have a lot of storage so we don’t go out shopping

Living the Viva Loca in an RV

So you think living in a motorhome, wandering the backroads sounds adventuresome. Dreams of places to visit dance in your head. You drive down the road and see that RV pass you by and you itch to get out there
