Good Sam Road Trip Planner

Oh the places we can go Here it is, the middle of summer. We’ve already taken the family on the “Summer Vacation” to the beach. But I still really want to take the RV out a few more time before football season starts but I’m just not sure where to go. I sort of want it to be fairly close to home because I don’t have a lot of time, yet I want it to be far enough away so that it “feel” like a mini vacation.

Good Sam Added New Parks

Good Sam Added New Parks

Seems like it’s a year of change for Good Sam – with their new ratings, a new campground engine, and now the fact that they have added hundreds of new parks which means that traveling has been made easy for every RVers around the US and Canada. We love to take our RV out of our permanent place and go on an expedition with our kids.   When we travel we always make sure that we try out new things as well.    For example, on a trip to Niagara Falls a couple of years ago, we had found a campground within Niagara Falls and stayed an extended period of time in order to discover the area.   Not only were we able to pick cherries but we also discovered the Welland Canal and went to make kazoos on the other side of the border. Our discoveries of that region was fabulous but the stay not so much.  Right in front of the camping grounds was a establishment which men would go to see dancers and drink.  The place was packed every day of the week at night.   It wasn’t ideal for the... [Read more...]

RV Campground Search Made Easy

RV Campground Search Made Easy

Fourth of July is right around the corner and I just got the best news!  My family is bringing their RV for that weekend to celebrate Independence Day and go camping with us at the beach!  We realized there may not be many places left for such a popular camping weekend, so I got right to work on finding us a great RV park that fits all of our needs and has space for us. I recently read that Woodall’s has a new campground search, so I decided to use it to help find us a couple camp sites nearby in Ventura.  The New Campground Search Engine is conveniently located right on their website homepage at http://www.woodalls.com/.  First, I plugged in the city and state (Ventura, CA) and it instantly came up with 45 results within a 50 mile radius of Ventura.   Then, because my family is coming to Ventura to be close to the beach, I opted to sort the results of my search with the “distance” option.  The other convenient options you can use for sorting/viewing your search listing... [Read more...]

Time to Plan…

Time to Plan…

The time has come; the time is now. Last year, being the year of our big move, we did not travel during the summer as we usually do. We were too busy still moving west and getting settled in, 1500 miles away from our former home. To be comfortable traveling, we needed to be more secure home base. This year we have established that home base. We have been living here for nearly a year. We have settled in remarkably well and are even planning some minor improvements that we will be working on this year. I have work that I enjoy; Terry is settling into his new routine and taking classes in building and landscaping at UNM Taos to help make those improvements a reality. We have also had the pleasure of enjoying the company of all three of our children for the entire month of January, making it feel even more like home. The time has come to plan our travels for the year. Even though I do much of my work everyday on a computer and via the internet, when starting to plan our travels, I prefer... [Read more...]
