About 11 miles east of Yuma, Arizona lies the tiny border town of Los Algodones, tucked right into the corner of Mexico that borders California and Arizona. Known as the dental capital of the world, Los Algodones has only 6,000 residents yet boasts more than 300 dentists, all offering their services to 3,000+ people a day – mostly Americans and Canadians –

Virgin Boondocking Adventure Part 1: Prep

After 8 months on the road staying mostly in campgrounds with full hook-ups (electricity, water and sewer) we decided it was time to mix things up and try a stint of boondocking. Also known as dry camping, free camping or wild camping, boondocking is basically camping without hook-ups. The idea of being able to camp “off-the-grid” (OTG), immerse ourselves fully into

Thousand Trails Upgrades: Elite, Platinum, VIP ++

As you may know by now, after five months of being hooked on the benefits of our Thousand Trails Zone Pass, we realized we wanted more! More campgrounds, more options, more flexibility, longer stays and less restrictions! Strange as it sounds, when we started out on our journey, we had no idea that any other Thousand Trails membership options (upgrades) even

Is a Thousand Trails Zone Pass right for you?

One of the important aspects of planning for our RV lifestyle was putting together our budget. As we live, travel and work full-time from our RV, campgrounds fees had the potential to be one of our biggest monthly expenditures.

We hadn’t planned on going home to Colorado for Christmas. A typical rocky mountain winter means snow, icy roads and sub zero temps which can freeze up your RV pipes and result in a costly repair. We’d intended to stay in sunny California then make our way back to Colorado in the Spring. Of course, the best laid plans can change in a heartbeat. A

Our very first consideration when we started talking about the possibility of traveling, living and working from a motorhome was whether or not technology would make this lifestyle possible for us and if so, how! We had a hundred and one questions like… How would we stay connected? Did we need to invest in a satellite system? Would

What we are most Thankful for

We tend to be pretty reflective and grateful about our lives on a daily basis, but as this is our first Thanksgiving on the road in our RV, we thought we’d share some of our thoughts on how we plan to celebrate, what we’re most thankful for, our favorite Thanksgiving foods and whether or not we plan to shop on Black Friday!
