Into Canada: Fun in Fundy (National Park)

Last time you were with us on this blog, we reviewed our travel costs and also, some upgrades we made to our RV; getting back to the actual trip, we were enjoying Maine last time around but, if truth be told we were itching to get into Canada and explore some brand spanking new stuff! In early …

RV Roadtrip – Costs so far – USA, East Coast

Since starting this blog we've had quite a few questions from folks interested in the whole budget/expenses side of things and we certainly understand the need to 'cut your cloth according to your measure', as they say in Ireland (ie. be aware of your own financial limitations). If you have been following this blog, you'll know …

Virginia to Maine…not as far as you might think

We used to live out west for a few years - Colorado, Arizona, Oregon - those states are so much bigger than the states on the east coast it seems. In less than 2 June weeks, we traveled from Virginia through Maryland, Delaware, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and into Maine. Why the rush, you might ask. …

The most expensive campground of the trip

Having enjoyed the mountains of North Carolina & Virginia, we pointed the RV east and headed back to the coast, which we hadn’t seen since the Florida panhandle almost 3 weeks prior. Some may ask: "since we were towing a sailboat this entire time - why we didn’t take the coastal route from Florida (through Savannah, …

The Blue Ridge Parkway (with a sailboat!)

We love the Blue Ridge Parkway, almost 500 miles of super scenic road. Loved by bikers everywhere, it has lots of twists and turns, tunnels and great views. Not so great in an RV, towing a sailboat but, what the heck ….. It got us to some lovely campgrounds, such as Mt. Pisgah campground (NC), …

Seahorses and sea hares in the Florida panhandle

The Florida panhandle is an area that many Floridians have never explored and that’s a real shame. From it’s quaint small towns to it’s beautiful white sand beaches and it’s inherent wildness, it’s truly a great spot to visit. On our big 12 month road trip, we stayed at several of the awesome state parks …

From the Gulf Coast to the Atlantic Coast & back again

Florida is an amazing state to travel in. We’ve been coming here for years, in fact Dominic spent some of his formative years in this state living in Palm Coast. In 2013 we decided to take the plunge and move to FL, from our home in Charleston, SC and we haven’t looked back since. Sure, …

Did you have someone renting your home, while you were on the road?

We got this question a lot when we were traveling …. Perhaps if we were still in our 20’s we wouldn’t get this so much. But folks look at us, our age etc. and assume we are homeowners and wouldn’t dream of living full-time in a 23 ft RV. Not a completely incorrect assumption but, …

Where did we get the money to take 12 months off work?

We saved the money necessary for this trip. You have to save the money too. Unless you have someone who’ll happily part with said money. Or you can win the lottery or marry (or remarry) well (or just better). Your budget can be whatever you are comfortable with. You might want to take this trip …
