    Family Trip to Leavenworth, WA
    Leavenworth is a hidden little gem in the cascade mountains of Central Washington. It’s a small, beautifully designed, old world Alpine/Bavarian style village, envision a small town, somewhere in Germany….  Leavenworth has the charm of a mountain town with many activities for all to enjoy….Here are some of our highlights during our trip.   1. River Tubing – We did a 4 mile river float that started on the Icicle River then connected to the Wenatchee River. It was a very relaxing and scenic 3.5 hour float. We used Leavenworth Outdoor Center, they provides tubes, cooler...

    Plan your Highway 395 Adventure
    One of my favorite highways to travel is highway 395 in California. The stretch between Ridgecrest and Reno on the east side of the Sierra Mountain range holds a special place in my heart for its beauty and variety of terrain. All my trips to this area have been in late winter, the weather is mild and in contrast to the rest of California not as crowded. While there is an abundance of things to explore on this stretch of highway I selected my top 5 with a couple bonus activities. Drive to Kennedy Meadows -...

RVing and camping over the years have become more expensive and a fair amount of “upfront” and “as you travel” planning needs to be done to actually save money when traveling.First, I won’t get into choosing a rigs and the cost associated. Everyone has different wants and needs (along with budget) and spending anywhere between $4,000 and up to $200,000 is not unreasonable!! We all have a checked off list to...

    No Address? No Problem!
    COVID-19 has changed the way we do a lot of things. Many RVers, who were used to spending time at RV Parks are now spending more time on public lands because parks are closed and for additional social distancing. One question we have been getting lately is “I need to order an awning, where can I get it shipped to”? Well, the answer is pretty easy! Tough Tops ships through UPS, we currently do not work with anyone else like FedEx, which packages can be delivered to most Walgreens locations. BUT, you can get your package shipped...

    TRAVELING DURING COVID-19
    Being an RVer right now is a mixed bag, right?On the one hand we have the ability to get away from cities and crowds and quarantine in nature, many RVers say “we are built for this”. But on the other hand established places to camp are closed and small communities are not taking well to outsiders.I wanted to share how I’ve been dealing with being a full time RVer during this crazy time. When all this began I was still traveling in the Baja. There were no known cases so we felt safe and we just...
