That is a place I have wanted to go.  You have a 40' and I a 45', will there be a problem for me?  On roads and campgrounds?  Do you reserve ahead, before you go?

The Joys of Being a Sometime RVer

RV Lifestyle

Several of the travel blogs that I follow are written by people living full-time in their RV.  I'm not talking about trailer park living.  These are folks who, as part of a plan (not necessity), sold their house and most of their possessions and live a life of what seems like perpetual travel.  Their RV is their home and many say Home is wh...

Mount Rushmore Trip Tally I saw Mount Rushmore with my own eyes!! This particular trip was a bucket list item for me and nothing could be more thrilling than driving to Mount Rushmore, in our RV, and with our two kids in summer. Dream come true, really. While seeing the beauty of Mount Rushmore was thrilling enough, the trip itself was waaaay more eventful than we had anticipated....

The simple answer is “It Depends…”

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.

Mountain Hwy.

Posted by washtech in washtech's Blog, 01 August 2014 - - - - - - · 975 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.
