Everyone is right about Acadia…

It’s flipping amazing! While Acadia National Park only encompasses 49,000 acres of the Atlantic coastline in Maine (comparatively Yellowstone is 2.24 mil acres), making it the 13th smallest National Park by size, it contains almost 150 miles of trails, 45 miles of carriage roads (perfect for biking), 7 peaks above 1000 ft (small potatoes compared...

Boston, history and traffic

Continuing our journey north, we stopped for a few days outside of Boston to hang out and visit some history. We stayed in Acton, an hour outside of Boston at Boston Minutemen Campground, a nice small wooded campground near the train station. The campground feels more like a county park than a commercial RV park...

Wildly weird Rhode Island

First of all, it’s not even an island! It’s firmly attached to Connecticut and Massachusetts. Second, the official name is State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. So while it’s the smallest state in the US (by size), it has the longest official name. Third, while the island part of the state is officially called Rhode...

New York City – So Much of Everything

While we aren’t big fans of cities (many are similar with little to really distinguish them), NYC is a whole different beast and we had to immerse ourselves in the experience. NYC isn’t RV friendly (yeah, I know…brilliant observation) so RVers, including us, use Liberty Harbor RV Park as home base. It isn’t pretty (it’s...

Lamest blog post ever

For a while, I didn’t feel like blogging for a couple of reasons. First, we were having fun and doing things and who has time to write about it all? Then after the fun and games, who wants to sit down and actually concentrate on writing about it all?!? So I would keep putting it...

State Park Hopping

Since we’re heading up to New England and Nova Scotia this summer, we’re spending our winter in the south-east instead of our “usual” desert south-west. Florida is a huge snowbird destination and is full of tightly-packed, 55-and-over RV parks that are sold out months in advance for the winter months. Since that’s not our cup...

….AND we’re back!

When we decided to get serious about buying a Phaeton, we had to decide on a Tiffin dealer. We bought Rover through Lazydays in Tampa for a number of reasons, but we decided we would not buy from them again (great sales dept., terrible service dept.). Many folks have recommended Davis and Sherman dealers for...

Too Much Southern Hospitality

It’s been a while since we’ve posted but it’s taken us some time to recover from our stay in Red Bay, AL before we could relive the experience. Then we got caught up in celebrating the holidays with our family and blogging went out the window. So now I’ve finally buckled down and I’m ready...

DragonCon – Where Nerds Go To Be Normal

After the eclipse (we still haven’t been able to stop gushing about the experience), we made it to Atlanta GA in time for DragonCon, a huge multi-genre convention held every year over Labor Day weekend. Every year it grows larger, with an estimated crowd size of 80,000 people this year. This is our third time...
