Anyone who owns a cat knows if you don’t provide a place for your mini lions and tigers to scratch, your furniture will be one big heaping mess of ripped up remnants. I don’t know if its just luck or that we’ve just been good forceful cat parents that we’ve not had furniture issues. It might be because we’ve always had the biggest, most badass cat climbing towers known to man. Okay, maybe not ‘that’ badass but our resident mousers sure loved it.
Forest fires have become quite the topic lately. It seems the whole west coast of the United States is burning and all it took was a single spark to ignite thousands upon thousands of acres of forest. And, once ignited, fires ravage quickly. Consequently, wildlife will be displaced and the whole environment suffers.
But we can change that by adhering to these 10 Campfire Safety Tips…
Most RVers who travel on the road full-time have pet companions. They are very much a part of our journey. We take them everywhere. Whether tethered on a leash, huddled quietly in a cat carrier or sitting on the back of the driver’s seat, they love the adventure as much as we do. They wanna go too! However, when they get sick or injured, our wheels oftentimes come to a screeching halt. We must learn to shift gears and seek a different road or…just slow down.
Kayaks, paddle boards and other paddling vessels have become quite popular within the RV and camping communities. Its hard not to notice all of the brightly-colored kayaks, paddle boards, rafts and canoes adorning the tops of trucks and cars or secured on the backs of RV’s. Unfortunately though, most kayakers and paddlers aren’t aware of the safety measures that will keep them afloat instead of becoming a statistic.

Before we stepped foot into our first RV in 2014, we’ve already been to four National Parks and several National Monuments and Historical Parks when we were motorcycle nomads. We paid entry admissions for all of them because we didn’t have a National Park Pass. Why? Because we didn’t know about them!
Throughout our RV and camping travel adventures, we’ve taken note of some really cool products out there for dogs and cats. They like to go camping or enjoy the great outdoors just like us so why not set them up with their own gear so they can go!
There’s nothing like feeling the pages of a good book! While we can get most books on Kindle, we still love to open them to vividly colored pages, map pull-outs, etc. By having these books and guides, we don’t have to rely on internet connection to plan our trips, do research or just dream. We don’t have to recharge or plug any electronics devices in. We just reach for the book, grab our reading glasses and open it.
Did you know there’s 60 of National Parks; at least one in every state? That’s ‘just’ the National Parks since 1916! There’s also countless National Monuments, Historic Landmarks, Battlefields, Military Parks, Seashores, Lakes and Rivers. They’ve grown to epic numbers of visitors. It’s fairly inexpensive, fun and a great way to get in touch with nature and the wild. At the same time, it’s a great way to learn about our Country’s history, geography and geology. Are you ready for your amazing experience?
You’ve got the family and RV all packed and are ready to hit the road for spring break or summer vacation. You’ve got the goodies to make s’mores, roadmaps, activity books, and everything under the sun to keep them occupied. However, there’s one thing to discuss with the kids before taking off to explore the outdoors: CAMPING SAFETY. Continue reading “Family Camping Safety Tips and Tricks”
Since we’re are cast members in the upcoming RV Nomads movie documentary, we’ve been getting acquainted with the other cast members behind the scenes and of course, this means reading and learning about and meeting their furry companions too. We couldn’t help not blogging about them…because we LOVE them.
