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.
Recipes for Making Hot Chocolate on a Camping Road Trip
No matter what your age, sipping on a warm mug of hot chocolate gives you a warm, fuzzy feeling. RVers are as vulnerable to the lures of hot chocolate as anyone else. However, being on the go, they may not always have the time to brew the perfect blend while on the road. Here are some recipes to make hot chocolate on the go.
Buying a Green RV
RV owners are becoming increasingly attuned to environmental considerations. When looking to upgrade and purchase a new motor home or trailer, many RVers are starting to add 'Green' to their list of considerations. But what does it mean to ask for 'Green'? We speak with Mandy Leazenby, TRA Certification's Green Program Manager to better understand the different shades of green.
How to Boondock Safely
The boondocks used to be a place you didn't want to go - "don't go too far or you'll end up in the boondocks!" Boondocking, otherwise known as dry camping, typically involves parking up in a place with limited amenities. RVers may sometimes find themselves having to boondock in parking lots or public lands, especially in remote areas or long stretches of interstate where getting to a campground or RV park may take you too far off course. Boondocking, when done sensibly, can be safe and a lot of fun, regardless of your age! Here are a few common sense safety tips to remember.
Take a Bike on Your Next Camping Road Trip
Do you take your bike with you on your camping road trips? No? Maybe you should. Being able to travel in comfort onboard an RV or even a car can spoil us. Why strain your legs and your back pedaling a bike when you can drive instead? I tell you why - it can save you time, you can explore lots of new places, it's good for your health, can help in an emergency and it's lots of fun.
Camping Road Trip through the Kenai Peninsula
Located south of Anchorage, the Kenai Peninsula is a land full of striking contrasts. It boasts massive prehistoric glaciers and snow-capped mountains and is home to numerous pristine lakes, rivers, and lush green forests teeming with diverse wildlife, giving outdoor enthusiasts so much to do and see. It's no wonder why it has been dubbed as Alaska's Playground.
Premier Luxury RV Resorts
Clubhouses, fine dining, a distinguished setting, upscale clientele, tennis courts, putting greens. These are the components that separate distinct, memorable RV resorts from traditional RV resorts.
