Confession: I am a data junkie. Yes, all scientists are data junkies, but my particular dependency is much worse . . .
A short winter break in warm Florida weather gave us a chance to exercise our bikes, our kayak, and our camera gear . . .
We just returned from our annual summer trip to Colorado, staying for the first time at our tiny piece of Rocky Mountain real estate . . .
My motorhome owner friends typically fall into one of two camps (pardon the pun) . . .
As the end of 2017 approached, we took a little time away from chilly Chapel Hill and headed south to the Florida Keys, a favorite destination for kayaking and bicycling . . .
After a 500-mile day of solo driving over nearly every type of road imaginable — from interstate highways to winding narrow mountain roads — I now have a rather complete driver's perspective of how LiquidSpring’s “Compressible Liquid Adaptive Suspension System“ (CLASS) has changed my motorhome's ride and handling . . .
Tomorrow morning, I’m flying back to the LiquidSpring factory and will pick up Rocky, our Tiffin motorhome, now sporting an entirely new rear suspension system . . .
There are now 10,000 miles on Rocky, our 2017 Tiffin Allegro Open Road 32SA, but it feels more like 5000 + 5000 . . .
We’ve just returned from a late summer trip to Colorado, our third straight year driving a motorhome there from North Carolina . . .
The more prospective RV owners I meet, the more I appreciate the enormous diversity in their lives and their mobile lifestyle goals . . .
Having moved to North Carolina nearly nine years ago, I’m a little embarrassed to admit that we have not yet traveled to the Outer Banks, the string of barrier islands off the eastern coast . . .
In my last blog post, I started by pointing out the most obvious distinction between our current and former RVs: size . . .
We’ve only had time for a few weekend trips in our new Class A motorhome, but the memories of Class B traveling are still fresh . . .
It’s a difficult habit to break – we still keep referring to our new RV as “the van” – but we are now taming a much different beast than our last RV, The Silver Box . . .
It all started with us thinking that we would simply trade in our 2015 Free Spirit SS when we were ready to purchase a new motorhome . . .
It’s supposed to drop to 6°F in Chapel Hill tonight, and our new motorhome is not winterized . . .
Three weeks earlier than expected, our new motorhome arrived, a last-minute surprise in a year full of surprises . . .
In about a month, we will be moving all of our camping equipment and supplies into our new Class A motorhome, which is still under construction . . .
The Silver Box wore its cinematographer hat one last time when we drove to Arches National Park in late August . . .
I’ve written many times about the lifestyle advantages of a small motorhome, primarily from the viewpoint of a first-time RV owner . . .
