Two Guns Ghost Town, Winslow, Arizona

While staying at the Two Guns KOA, we were able to bike over and check out the Two Guns ghost town. There are 4 sections; two larger areas, a smaller set of buildings, and a single building, all built around a canyon. The whole thing was pretty awesome, with the coolest section being the furthest

Our Stay at Two Guns KOA

Our Stay at Two Guns KOA

We do not usually stay at RV parks, and have never previously stayed at a KOA before. When read about the Two Guns Ghost Town, and saw there was an RV park nearby we could stay at, we knew we couldn’t pass up the chance. Upon entering the park, you pass by the two concrete

Giant Storms, a New Camera, Levelland Texas, and a Great Free RV Spot

Armed with our Nikon D5200 and ready to take better looking photos, we finally started heading west! And, it appears we may have left a little early. Along our path, we encountered tornado sirens – causing us to have to duck and hide in a Walmart, temperatures dropping into the 30’s, and another large storm

Free Florida Boondocking

Free Florida Boondocking

When we winter in Florida, we prefer to escape the cramped RV park life, get out into nature, and enjoy ourselves. Since we are fully self contained, hold over 7 days of water, and have our RV solar system, it was time to see what we could do. Thanks to the SWFWMD and SFWMD, and

Deep Creek Preserve, Arcadia, Florida

Deep Creek Preserve, Arcadia, Florida

Deep Creek was a fairly nice place to stay, and was comparable to Oak Ridge and Cypress Creek. It had your standard amenities, including non-potable water, a port-o-john that was in need of a little more service (like a new floor) but usable and not disgusting, picnic tables, and fire rings. The park itself was

We Boondocked Key West

We Boondocked Key West

We couldn’t stay in Florida for a second winter and not go to the keys. Campgrounds in Key West are way more pricey than we pay, so we dropped the camper and took advantage of our van dwelling experience. We heard overnighting in Key West was difficult, and it’s true, but we managed to make

We Dry Camped St. Louis

We Dry Camped St. Louis

Laurie was pretty excited about heading to St. Louis, and her Google map quickly filled with markers of places she wanted to go. We planned on dry camping as much as possible, but quickly found out that St. Louis is not very RV friendly. Most areas around the city have recently (as of this posting) adapted ordinances against overnight

We Did Florida

We Did Florida

Even though our plans were not to head to Florida for the winter, the weather drove us there anyways. We can say, other than Apopka and their short yellow lights with traffic cameras, we enjoyed our stay. We changed locations a few times while there, staying in Callahan, Ocala, and Mayo at Suwannee River Rendezvous.

Juniper Springs, Ocala Florida

Juniper Springs, Ocala Florida

It’s not often, lately, we have a chance to relax and go sightseeing. But, when we have the chance, places like Juniper Springs make a great day trip. The first portion is a relaxing area where swimming is allowed in clear water that remains between 68 and 72 year round. At the far end, sits a mill house.

We’re Finally on the Road, Full Time

We have been living in our camper for a little over a year. While having all of luxuries of constant power and water is great, winter is rapidly approaching and it’s time to finally get ourselves and our camper on the road full time. Our first week out was more work than it was play

Our Maryland & D.C. Van Camping Trip

With the new bed modifications in our E-350, we were ready to set out on our next van camping adventure. This time, we were going north up interstate 95 to the D.C. area, from there we were not sure.

Our First Camper Trip

Our First Camper Trip

How touristy is it we took our first trip to the beach? Oh well, we needed a nice test run and the experience of pulling the camper and what better way than to use our home as our “motel” on our semi-annual beach trip. We set out with our trusty sidekick Gypsy and Laurie’s mom, making
