(Nov. 13, 2018) — I think sometimes there’s a dreamy misconception about RV Life. It’s exciting, the prospect of leaving everything behind for a simpler life, full of beauty and adventure.

(Nov. 12, 2018) — Most of you will have heard of the devastation of the town of Paradise, California. We were supposed to be going right by there, but the main highway was closed due to the fires. So we altered our route to head across the mountains to Reno, Nevada.
