About rv family

As an extremely busy self-employed family we began to realize just how quickly life was passing us by. The kids aren't getting any younger and everyone's schedules just seem to be getting busier and busier. The questions began to surface...questions like: How can we spend more quality time together now? What are things that we all enjoy doing?

San Diego Zoo, Point Loma, Cabrillo National Monument

Today Lindsay and the kids headed out with out Greg who stayed back at the RV to catch up on work and rest from the long trek across the county.  We started at the San Diego Zoo which is HUGE….100 acres.  We got there and chose the park ticket that included the bus systems in … Continue reading »

San Diego, USS Midway, Coronado and RV Repair

When we awoke, we found the RV’s breaker panel and determined that the front HVAC breaker had tripped in the desert heat and just needed to be flipped- one problem solved!  I spoke with the RV diesel repairman and he was to us by 9:30am.  After some quick diagnostics, he determined which hydraulic line had … Continue reading »

Saguaro NP and Motorhome Woes

We left the luxury KOA this morning and made the short trip over to the western unit (Red Hills) of Saguaro NP.  We quickly realized that we needed to disconnect and park the RV after scraping the road at some deep dips.  After resuming in just the Explorer, we pulled into the NP visitor center … Continue reading »

El Paso and the awesome Tucson KOA

We had a last minute change of plans this morning.  Instead of continuing north through the city of Carlsbad and then on for a quick stop at White Sand Nat Monument and then on to Tucson, we instead detoured south to handle some banking business in El Paso.  We will have to catch White Sands … Continue reading »

Carlsbad Caverns NP and Guadalupe Mountains National Park

We left Fort Stockton this morning and made the 4 hour journey up Highway 285.  We arrived at Guadalupe Mountains NP by late morning.  We were limited in our time, so after a quick visit to the visitor center, we hiked the short Pinery Trail.  On the hike we saw the ruins of the Pinery, … Continue reading »

Big Bend National Park!

We left San Antonio late this morning around 9am.  Our campground was on the east side of the city and the campground manager said, “Either leave by 6am or after 9am or be ready to sit in traffic”.  A 6am time was originally considered but quickly dismissed for what it was- outright lunacy!  We made … Continue reading »

San Antonio, the Alamo and Riverwalk

We left Houston this morning and made the 4 hour trip to San Antonio.  After setting up at the campground, we set out to explore the City.  Our first stop was The Alamo.  The final siege by Mexican General Santa Ann was on March 6, 1836, the thirteenth and final day of the assault that … Continue reading »

Beginning the long push West!

We woke up this morning to a stuffy RV- the downside of staying in a Walmart parking lot is no electric or water/sewer, but the upside is no campground fee.  After grabbing a few items inside the walmart, we were off and through Atlanta, then through the Alabama cities of Auburn and Montgomery before passing … Continue reading »

Acadia NP- Day 2

What had been the pattering of rain yesterday morning had turned into a full heavy rain overnight. We awoke early and promptly turned off the alarm clocks and decided to sleep in again today! (Victoria and I slept way in!) We had a family Bible lesson which always hit home in a really good way … Continue reading »
