Sleepy Cypress Trees and the Silvery Ocean: Myrtle Beach State Park

Sleepy Cypress Trees and the Silvery Ocean: Myrtle Beach State Park

When we pulled into Myrtle Beach State Park, Wesley was fast asleep.  His twin brothers, however, were not.  So we found a parking spot between the playground and the beach so Wes could rest and the boys could play.  Max informed me that I was going to be “the bad pirate” and that he and Theo were going to be “the good pirates.”  Then he informed me that I had to go over to the kiddy playset because that was my pirate ship and they were both about to raid it.  Things were not looking good for dad. Much to my relief, the boys soon become... Read More

Alligators, Architecture, and the Atlantic Ocean: Huntington Beach State Park

Alligators, Architecture, and the Atlantic Ocean: Huntington Beach State Park

I’m going to go ahead and admit something. I have never once in my life seen an alligator in the wild. I’m a little confused by this myself. I mean I’ve traveled quite a bit in my life, and a lot of that travel has been in natural environments with tons of wildlife. But somehow…no alligators. Well, check something off the bucket list that I didn’t even know was on there. The alligators are the first thing you get to experience when driving into Huntington Beach State Park, so I couldn’t help but stop on the... Read More

Own the Road: 5 Reasons We Arrive with Happy Campers

Vacationing with kids is awesome. Getting to that vacation with everyone’s sanity and goodwill intact can be the really tricky part. The planning and packing and loading is enough to stop most people from venturing onto the open road with their children. And then there is the horror of hours upon hours of are we there yet variations in whine minor. Getting from point A to point B as a family is never an easy endeavor, but we do believe it is worth the effort. That’s why we have been doing it for the last four years. We kicked off... Read More

Guest Blog: The Campgrounds of New Zealand

Here is the latest post from our guest bloggers John and Cathy, who recently returned from an epic RV adventure in New Zealand… * About a year ago we decided to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary with a trip to New Zealand.   Since we have lived an RV lifestyle, both here and in Europe, for the past 30 years, we made the decision to rent a small motorhome and travel in New Zealand using commercial campgrounds.  We wanted to stay in commercial campgrounds and compare them to campgrounds here in America.  We stay a lot at KOA campgrounds...

Guest Blog: The Thrill Seeking Kiwis of Auckland and Queenstown

Here is the latest post from our guest bloggers John and Cathy, who recently returned from an epic RV adventure in New Zealand… * We were able to spend some time in two of New Zealand’s cities.  Auckland, the largest city, is situated on the North Island and is home to the major international airport where we landed.  The other city, Queenstown, is on the South Island. * The Kiwis are a thrill seeking and adventuresome people, so it is no surprise that bungee jumping, the practice of jumping off a high structure with a rubber band...

Guest Blog: Exploring Milford Sound, The Wettest Part of New Zealand

Our Guest Bloggers John and Cathy Continue Their Epic RV Adventure in New Zealand. When is a Sound not a Sound?  When it is Milford Sound in New Zealand.  Arguably one of the MUST experiences of a New Zealand trip is a boat tour of this Sound.  Our trip to Milford began in the lovely resort town of Te Anau, where we witnessed a beautiful sunset over La Te Anau.  We stayed at the Te Anau Top 10 Holiday Park, one of the nicest places we camped.  But more about New Zealand’s campgrounds later. We decided not to drive our rented motorhome... Read More
