Spring has sprung, and so has our April Outdoor Living Newsletter. We celebrate the change of season with an RV planning guide to Alaska, one of the most beautiful and dramatic U.S. states. We're keeping things fun, healthy and active with our top family amusement park selections, healthy fast food choices, and whitewater rafting destinations. They say laughter is the best medicine, and we agree. We've included a video of Jim Gaffigan doing his camping stand up act. Enjoy! And don't hold back those smiles.
Alaska RVing... here I come!
When CampingRoadTrip.com asked me to write some articles for their newsletter, we came up with the idea to create a guide to RVing in Alaska - and this is the perfect time of the year to start planning. This is the first of a three part series that has suggestions for actually making the trip, including times, routes, hints, tips, and recommendations on what (and what not) to do, on what to take with you, and what to go and see in Alaska.

Healthy fast food choices on the road
One of the challenges that road trippers face is limited dining options. In the world of limited options, fast food unfortunately wins out and our health suffers. So what's a road tripper to do? Find out the healthiest fast food options before you head out on the road.
Here are four simple tips for finding that healthy diamond in the rough.
