Within our busy schedule for our trip to Europe, we had carved out 10 days to visit Scotland. Although I've been to Scotland several times before, it's been years since I last visited and Diana has never been. Scotland is a beautiful country and we were keen to see as much as we could in the short time available to us. Looking back, I think we ended up with the perfect itinerary.
In a small trailer like ours, everything must be multi-purpose. It was surprising to us therefore that the fridge and freezer doors should be made of heavy dark wood - sapping the light out of our small kitchen area and providing no utility! They had to go - and for under $27 we replaced them with magnetic dry-erase doors!
In early October every year, Albuquerque, New Mexico plays host to the world's largest hot air balloon festival - the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta (AIBF). With more than 500 balloons, the event attracts nearly 1 million visitors over the 9 days it runs. Let me walk you through how to make the most out of the event, with our ultimate guide to the balloon fiesta, written with RVers in mind.
Despite the nomadic lifestyle of many full-time RVers, everyone in the US must have a home state. Our main reason for driving all the way from California down to Texas was to become Texas residents - to establish Texas as our domicile state.
Day 1 - Tuesday (Fremont, CA) It's 5:15am on Tuesday morning and that sound is the alarm clock. We need to get out of bed and get rid of this mattress.
There is so much beauty in America’s National Parks. We’ve glimpsed at it as we have visited and explored many of the parks out West, but why stop there? We love adventure, which is why we’ve decided to go and visit every single one - all 417 National Park units!
We stayed at the Sunny Acres RV Park in Las Cruces, New Mexico one night as the base for exploring the White Sands National Monument. The RV Park by itself was quite quiet, however there are train tracks nearby. There were trains going through the night and they make really loud noises that did wake us up several times.
We stayed at Justin's Diamond J RV park for one night on Feb 19, 2017 to explore the nearby Saguaro National Park. This park seems to be catered towards longer term stay as it has lots of activities, for example mini-golf, bocce ball and walking trails that start right off the RV park. The sites were reasonably large, though there wasn't much vegetation to separate the sites. We were at site 39 and our 24 foot trailer and truck fit fine. When we stayed here in February the park was packed, but it was still quiet at night.
Saguaro National Park in Arizona near Tuscon consists of two separate districts on separate sides of Tuscon. We had an afternoon to visit the west side, and a morning to visit the east side in February 2017. We started with Sonora Arizona Desert Museum , which is located right outside the west side of the Saguaro National Park. The museum is not part of the national park, but I highly recommend to stop by the there.
We stayed at the CoyoteHowls WEST RV park for one night on February 18, 2017. We were on our way from Phoenix to Tucson and chose this RV park for its proximity to Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. We arrived at the campground at 1pm and the camp host was helpful and friendly in setting us up with a site.
