Down Mexico Way…

After the Xscapers Annual Bash, we headed back to Yuma for a week to relax since we were planning to attend another Xscapers convergence. Yeah, I know, it’s totally crazy for us to do back-to-back group meetups but we originally signed up for the Mexico Convergence, then saw that the Annual Bash (AB) was just...

Xscapers Annual Bash

It’s a good thing we had some “introvert” downtime in Yuma after all our socializing in Tucson, since we signed up for even more socializing at the Xscapers Annual Bash in Lake Havasu AZ. Xscapers is an offshoot of the Escapees RV Club. Xscapers was created to cater towards the working-aged RVers. It’s not age-related...

Tucson, friends and warmth

We always look forward to our stays at Catalina State Park in Tucson. Thanks to Mike’s super-planning, we snagged two full weeks there for the winter. Since we’ve talked about Catalina a few times now, I’ll stop boring you with the details and talk about what’s new for us this year. Catalina, and Tucson in...

Chilly cold but worth it

Once again we made our yearly trek back “home” to the VA/MD/DC area to visit friends and spend time with family for the Thanksgiving holiday. Suffice it to say there was way too much eating, but as always we had a fantastic time. We also ended up using this time to add solar panels to...

Canyons and coasters

Since we’ve visited the Grand Canyon South Rim, Grand Canyon North Rim, and Black Canyon (Gunnison NP), it was time to make a trip to the “Grand Canyon of the East”, Letchworth State Park. Located on the western edge of New York, Letchworth is a narrow long park that surrounds the Genesee River through deep...

Vermont – so much food

The nice thing about following RV blogs and social media is sometimes you can just steal all their hard work for yourself. This was the case when we visited Danville, Vermont. Chapter3Travels had visited the Cabot, VT in the past and their itinerary sounded perfect to us so we just decided to plagiarize most of...

Meetups and Hangouts

Games, games, and more games! The last few weeks, we’ve been back in Red Bay, AL finishing the rest of our warranty work on R2. While it does keep us busy, there isn’t much else to do in Red Bay which meant no more excuses and time to catch up on blogging. So back to...

Cape Breton Island

After our colorful stay in Lunenburg, we moved to the northern side of Nova Scotia to Wolfville for a few days. Wolfville brought us back to the Bay of Fundy which meant we were back in the area of high tidal ranges and chocolate colored water. Since Opie was such a great sport about staying...

Lunenburg, Nova Scotia

Since we fulfilled our Opie hiking duties in New Brunswick, we felt guilt-free about leaving Opie in the RV so we could play tourist in Lunenburg, especially since Mike’s brother and his wife came to visit for a few days and co-tourist with us. Lunenburg is a tiny port town (less than 2 squares miles)...

Driving, driving, driving New Brunswick

We made it to Canada! Our border crossing at Calais Maine consisted of a 5-minute conversation about where we’re going, what we’re doing, and what we’re bringing with us. When asked about weapons including pepper spray, we mentioned our bear spray for hiking and were told that as long as it’s labeled for animal defense...
