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 . . .
One of the most beautiful freeway stretches in the U.S. is Interstate 70 as it winds through the Rocky Mountains between Denver and Glenwood Springs . . .
A Gordon Research Conference brought us to Waterville Valley in New Hampshire last week, and we had one sunny afternoon free to explore the White Mountains . . .
Movies have been a fascination for me since I first used an 8mm camera for a high school project – a film based on a short story, with my classmates playing various dramatic roles . . .
This past weekend, The Silver Box auditioned for a new part-time job as a cinematographer . . .
Thanks to everyone who responded to my last blog post about a crowdsourced map called "RV Parking for City Tourists," which has now grown to 32 locations in North America . . .
I enjoy exploring new cities, but I dread hunting for an RV-sized parking space downtown . . .
I’ve been waiting a long time for this day! Shortly after announcing changes planned for their Class C motorhomes (Unity/Serenity/Wonder), Leisure Travel Vans has now revealed that their Free Spirit motorhome line is being resurrected for 2017 . . .
It’s been a year since we took our first vacation with our motorhome, “The Silver Box" . . .
Confession: I am a data junkie. Yes, all scientists are data junkies, but my particular dependency is much worse . . .
