Virginia Airstream Park – May 2015

We celebrated Memorial Day Weekend with friends at the Virginia Highland Haven Airstream Park just north of Floyd, VA as part of the Southeastern Camping Unit (thanks to Joe and Annette Conoly for herding us cats). Joe led the armada down the Little River for close to 7 miles – gorgeous views, flowers and pristine… Read More Virginia Airstream Park – May 2015

Springstream – April 2015

We had another “Springstream” weekend of Airstream love recently in Hiawassee, GA, up in the north Georgia Mountains with about 20-30 fellow Airstreams and other interesting trailers. I (we) had a great time, between paddling on Lake Chatuge (solo and with the Southeast Camping Unit armada), food, friendship and music. For whatever reasons I took… Read More Springstream – April 2015

Indian Bread Rocks – Feb 2015

If your palate is looking for an off-the-beaten-path camping location, this is it! The Indian Bread Rocks Recreation Area, situated in Bowie, AZ on BLM lands (Bureau of Land Management) in southeast Arizona, is at the base of the Dos Cabezas Mountains Wilderness. There are zero services available, so whatever you need, bring (which includes… Read More Indian Bread Rocks – Feb 2015

Fiesta De Los Vaqueros (AZ) – Feb 2015

Recommended to us by hiking friends Dave and Terry, we attended the Tucson Rodeo! The rodeo is a festival/celebration of the cowboy/cattle herder/horsemen, and participants are young, old, male, and female. And it is a great place to pick up a little cowgirl! We had an unbelievable day watching the rodeo: blue skies, stunning views… Read More Fiesta De Los Vaqueros (AZ) – Feb 2015

Modernism Week (a) – Feb 2015

This is not your father’s camper. Oops… my bad; maybe it is! During Modernism Week in Palm Springs, CA there was a vintage camper collection on display that was to die for. There were approximately 50 various Airstreams, Streamlines, Greyhound buses, Shastas… too many different and unique brands to remember. The common theme was that these… Read More Modernism Week (a) – Feb 2015

Modernism Week (b) – Feb 2015

Palm Springs, CA is my shiny new object, particularly as it relates to residential real estate. This town gushes with architectural design, to the point that you could write a book about great architectural design and never walk more than 3 blocks! The silly part is trying to provide just a few good examples when… Read More Modernism Week (b) – Feb 2015

Road Day, Southern CA – Feb 2015

Having woken up in our boon docking site nestled somewhere between the Picacho Mountain Wilderness and the Imperial Valley Sand Dunes, we used this day as a pretty relaxed “road day”. Both Lucy and Rosie got a little off-leash exercise (keep in mind Lucy is at least 17 years old – and still runs like… Read More Road Day, Southern CA – Feb 2015

Somewhere (CA) – Feb 2015

I don’t know exactly where we are (other than on BLM lands in southern California), but we are camped for the night and late this afternoon had some absolutely beautiful views from our “campsite” of the Picacho Mountain Wilderness. My bride, a little campfire, a cold beer, a little dinner… all is right with the… Read More Somewhere (CA) – Feb 2015

Lost Dutchman SP (AZ) – Feb 2015

Situated in the Sonoran Desert at the base of the Superstition Wilderness (Tonto National Forest), Lost Dutchman State Park feels like you are cast out in the middle of the desert (oh, that’s right – you are). Our campsite has 360’ of intense beauty that changes constantly as the sun makes its daily journey. Tans… Read More Lost Dutchman SP (AZ) – Feb 2015

Grand Canyon (AZ) – Feb 2015

A German Sheppard with opposable thumbs could probably take great pictures of the Grand Canyon, but here are a few of ours captured earlier today. The Grand Canyon, particularly if you have not visited, is nothing less than spectacular – takes your breath away. You could see the rapids on the Colorado River, but being… Read More Grand Canyon (AZ) – Feb 2015

Borrego Springs – Jan 2015

Assume for a moment that there are not a million acres of beautiful desert surrounding you, and you have just landed in this really quaint town called Borrego Springs, CA. Borrego Springs has had a champion (since passed away) named Dennis Avery (heir to the Avery Dennison label company) as a huge benefactor. Aside from… Read More Borrego Springs – Jan 2015

Hunting Island SP – Nov 2014

Located on the South Carolina coast halfway between Charleston and Savannah but in SC, we spent an abbreviated weekend here as part of rally of other like-minded RV campers (Hunting Island Hiatus). This is a stunning area and highly recommend. But get reservations early – this place is in high demand. Great place for biking,… Read More Hunting Island SP – Nov 2014

Acadia NP (ME) – Sept 2014

Between the carriage trails for hiking/biking, the beauty of Mount Desert Island and the stunning Maine coastline for paddling, pristine lakes… well… this is where to be. I paddled out of Seal Cove several times during our stay (there is a quiet public boat ramp there), and it was just beautiful. The carriage trails were… Read More Acadia NP (ME) – Sept 2014

Cobscook Bay SP (ME) – August 2014

Close to the most eastern most point in Maine (and the US), we camped at Cobscook Bay State Park in Dennysville, ME. What a gorgeous campground, but make sure you come provisioned with EVERYTHING you need – there is nothing around for miles. The views are simply stunning as the campground is located right on… Read More Cobscook Bay SP (ME) – August 2014
