We’re still enjoying a peaceful few weeks near the KOFA wildlife refuge south of Quartzsite. With not a lot going on (aside from one HUGE project that I hope to share with you soon), I seem to be lacking in blog material. So instead of an entire post filled with sunset photos, I thought I would share some winter reading material with you.
Some of you already know that I write articles for the website Do It Yourself RV.com. In fact, over the past few years I written almost 60 articles for this awesome site! The articles range in topic from the places I’ve been, lessons I’ve learned on the road, and the people I’ve met. Since these are all the things I write about here, I thought it would be fun to share some of the articles with all of you.
I choose 12 articles for your reading enjoyment. To read the full article either click on the title or the word continued at the end. If you want to read all of my articles simply go to the tab at the top of the page that says More, click on Authors and then click on my name. Also, while you’re over there be sure to scroll around the thousands of articles about unique RVs, DIY projects, cool travel destinations, and so much more.
Yes, I use my RV oven. In fact, I use it a lot. On average I crank up the oven a few times a week, and I cook everything that I used to make back when I lived in a house with a normal sized oven.
I’m constantly surprised by how many people find this astonishing. There’s a weird stigma surrounding RV ovens. From the notion that they burn everything, to the opinion that they’re only good for extra storage, many people view the RV oven as an intimidating and worthless appliance…. (continued)
National Scenic Parkways like the Natchez Trace are a dream come true for RV travel. With an abundance of natural scenery and historic sites, light traffic, well-maintained roads, an RV friendly speed limit, and several free campgrounds, the only possible downside is that after driving the Trace all other roads will pale in comparison…(Continued)
There’s something about a road trip that makes me hungry. It makes no difference whether I’ve eaten recently or not. Inevitably an hour or so into any road trip I’m craving something to snack on. As full-time RVers we do a lot of road tripping, which means for the sake of my health and waist line it’s important that I find a way to satisfy my snacking urge with simple, healthy road trip snacks.
Over the years, I’ve developed a collection of go-to heathy snacks that I make sure we always have on hand before setting out on a drive…(Continued)
Boasting all the beauty and wonder we’ve come to expect from national parks, national monuments are generally smaller in size (making them perfect for a one day or weekend trip) and don’t have crowded parking lots and clogged roadways.
You can find them all over the U.S., but to get you started here are three excellent options in the Southwest… (Continued)
There’s nothing that tests a relationship more than spending 24 hours a day together in a small space. Add in the inevitable stressful moments that come from breakdowns, wrong turns, and constantly adjusting to new places, and even the most compatible couples are bound to encounter some challenges when traveling together in an RV for an extended amount of time. But that doesn’t mean it can’t work, and work well…(Continued)
It sounds less like the tale of a successful entrepreneur and more like a dream come true.
In a lovingly restored 1986 Airstream named Loretta, a talented woman spends her days designing and creating handmade quilts to share with the people she loves. Along the way she decides to turn her passion into a business…(Continued)
There are lots of ways to camp in an RV. You can stay at a fancy resort with a heated pool and an onsite golf course, a state park with wooded sites and easy access to hiking trails, a KOA with lots of activities for the kids, or you could leave all that behind and strike out on your own for the ultimate RV experience — boondocking… (Continued)
