My Winnebago View - A Two Year Summary

Posted by italo in J. Dawg Journeys, 24 November 2015 - - - - - - · 173 views

My Winnebago View - A Two Year Summary It's been about two years, since I traded my 2012 Roadtrek 190 for a new 2014 Winnebago View Profile .  In those two years, I've logged about 40,000 miles and spent over 300 days traveling in the View.
The View has worked out to be a great motorhome for my travel lifestyle .  It's small enough to be a nimble traveling vehicle.  And i...

RV Thanksgiving: Feasting Large In Spaces Small It was once suggested to me that celebrating Thanksgiving in our RV was an utterly ridiculous notion. “HOW can you prepare such a grand meal in such a small space?!” “WHAT on earth could you serve without access to a full kitchen?!” “WHO would ever want to join you on such an adventure?!”
Never one to back away f...

Our trip through Labrador picks up on Sunday morning as we depart the Paradise River Rest Area.  The bridge over the river is a long metal bridge and it was talking to us as the morning sun began to warm the cold metal structure.  As the metal expanded there were occasional loud metallic bangs that echoed through the canyon of the Paradise River...

The simple answer is “It Depends…”
But…that’s probably not what you want to hear.
Honestly it depends on how you answer this 1 simple question…

The views from the mountain were spectacular. The balance of the day was spent at our CG enjoying the 70 degree weather.

Today we traveled over the mountain aga...

Caliente Spring Resort
I stayed at Caliente Springs Resort this winter and at a “State of the Resorts meeting” the management asked for an online review.  They may feel that they have the best resort available but I must say they are brave to ask for an online review with me in the room.

From Tampa to Everywhere.... One of my favorite things to do is lie on the sofa, close my eyes, and recreate a trip....the miles, the feel of the road, the terrain, the people I see and meet along the way.
I started in 2007, no sense pretending my memory is that sharp....so, I'll begin with the most recent..my Labor Day trip to the northeast Georgia mountains to visit an old e...

Mountain Hwy.

Posted by washtech in washtech's Blog, 01 August 2014 - - - - - - · 1,171 views

Good Morning Fellow Travelers:
One quick question, I'm considering traveling out to CO and visiting the Durango area. It appears that highway 160 running "west" off of I-25 is the most direct route. Does anyone have any "experience" with this particular highway?
Thanks for any input.
