As you step into your RV for the first time, you might be overwhelmed by what there is to learn, like how you are going to drive it and where on earth you are going to store all of your clothes, groceries and souvenirs that you pick up along the way over the course of […]
A week or so ago, we talked about cooking in your RV. Sure, there’s limited counter and storage space, but it’s still a snap to make pasta, pancakes, even hot dogs and kabobs, inside your RV. You can even zap TV dinners in the microwave if you’re short on time and energy at the end […]
Traveling by RV is a lot of fun, especially when exploring our National Parks. However, it’s not as easy to run out for a teaspoon of paprika or a quarter cup of heavy cream when on the road, so you’ll want to think ahead about grocery shopping and cooking your meals for a week or […]

Trip Advisor’s annual family travel survey reported that family travel rose 6 percent in 2011, and 38 percent of families planned multigenerational trips. Today’s baby-boomer grandparents do things differently than our parents and grandparents did. Not only do […]
Not long ago I read about a ranger from Grand Canyon National Park, Lisa Hendy, who was named the recipient of the 2011 Harry Yount National Park Ranger Award. This award is the highest honor bestowed on a park ranger, but as I read about this ranger’s skills, I was amazed: “She’s fought structural and […]
The San Francisco Bay is one of the most beautiful locations in the world, and this is a banner year to see it. The Golden Gate Bridge turned 75 on May 27, marking the day in 1937 when “the bridge that couldn’t be built” officially opened to worldwide acclaim. In addition, San Francisco will welcome […]
When you drive through the west, it isn’t uncommon to see large numbers of antelope dotting the countryside. Yellowstone is home to the last remaining northern pronghorn (antelope) herd, numbering around 200, and they are at risk.
