GOLD BEACH, Oregon

Our ultimate destination on this trip has been the Pacific Northwest.  It took us 5 months to get here.  Since we work from the road we can only travel on weekends and 200-250 miles is about all we can handle in a day. We also try to stay places long enough to be able to…

Waiiaka Rv Park, Yreka, CA

Overall this was a very comfortable park with really pleasant neighbors. Both Penny and Charlie let us know places close-by to go adventure to! Here is our spot, Clay liked it so much he even did a few workouts. We also got free passes to the dirt track at the Siskiyou Fairgrounds next door. It…

Coachland RV Park, Truckee, CA

Welcome to trees! Soooo many pine trees and cones and there is still SNOW in piles around the park.  Due to a heavier snow season, the park had to remove 40 huge trees. It was pretty amazing to watch as they used cranes and other large machinery to gently lay the beasts in the street.  Sad…

Esmeralda’s RV Park, Dyer, NV

This place was a hidden gem, in the middle of nowhere.  It also just so happens to be the location of the UTD Geosciences trailer and students come to study and write their theses. It is at the rhetorical end of the Furnace Creek Fault Zone, or FCFZ as they like to call it! Of…

Wine Ridge RV Resort, Pahrump, Nevada

We wound up at Wine Ridge after a failed attempt at staying in Shoshone, CA at the south entrance to Death Valley.  Upon arrival at Shoshone RV park I noticed a sign reading "Absolutely No Cellular Service, Payphone available at gas station". We stayed a night at the lovely park with the warm spring fed…

Tehachapi, CA – Indian Hill Ranch

After leaving Lost Lake we headed West further into California to Indian Hill Ranch RV park in Tehachapi, CA.  After a week of temperatures in the 90's we were reading for some cooler weather and we sure got it! Located about 35 miles southeast of Bakersfield it sits at about 4,000 feet elevation. When we…

Multiple Places in Arizona

We have had quite a few learning experiences in the past week since leaving New Mexico.  We had decided to try our hand at boondocking, also known as dry camping. I have also heard it referred to as Wallydocking, since it is common for RVers to dry camp at Wal-Mart.  Basically it means to park…

Caballo Lake RV Park, Caballo, NM

As we head toward the Pacific Northwest we have been looking for scenic places to stay as we travel through other states, in New Mexico the Caballo Lake RV park was a nice and inexpensive place for us to stop. Not to mention the view was pretty incredible. This place was by the far the…

Balmorhea State Park, Toyahvale, TX

This is probably one of the most out of the way places that we have stayed at so far.  The closest place to get real groceries and not convenient store stuff was a Walmart an hour away in Ft. Stockton. So stock up if you plan on staying here for any extended amount of time.…

Garner State Park, Concan, TX

Leaving New Braunfels and my folks was sad but we were anxious to get back on the road! We headed west of San Antonio to Garner State Park for a two week stay.  The park ended up being more expensive than we had anticipated because their website was not correct, but we paid the extra…

Christmas and New Year’s Eve in New Braunfels

Well we made it!  The drive from Grand Prairie to New Braunfels was a stressful one. The weather was great but midway through downtown Austin our jack lights and alarm started going off.  We were able to eventually pull off the freeway and jumped a curb before parking to correct the minor issue, we were…
