Gold Rush, Railroads and the Pony Express…Roadschooling

Technically, Roadschooling is a term used by homeschooling parents on the road who have their own curriculums.  My little goes to an online school so though I’m still his Learning Coach, we do follow a state curriculum.  As I shared in my previous school on the road post, we chose to have him enrolled in an online school because being advanced for his age his current […]


Our Winter Parks…

This winter we explored our Colorado River Parks in Cali and Arizona which are our free parks.  This is the first time we visited this chain of parks so we weren’t sure what to expect. We used Resort Parks International and Coast to Coast for our weeks out.   As with Thousand Trails…some were great others left much to be desired.  But I suppose that’s the theme […]


Catalina Spa and RV Resort…

Happy New Year!!!  We are escaping the rain…we are down south for the harshest part of the Winter…well, in our case wettest part of Winter.  Last year it rained so much on the Oregon Coast that it was way to crazy to bear in our small travel trailer, not to mention how cold it was.  This year of course with Luna Bella we have much more […]


A Year on the Road…

That’s right we hit our 1 yr mark…I can’t believe we’ve been living on the road for a year already…but we have and are still LOVING it!  There was lots of changes and challenges this past year.  Surprisingly enough there are lots to learn when you’re full-timing it, manyIt new experiences for all of us adjusting to a home on wheels and a new way of […]


2017 Eclipse and Florence Oregon…

As we work our way back to our home park in Gold Beach, we stayed in Florence for a week where we got to see the Great American Eclipse.  This was pretty cool, I’ve seen a few partial solar eclipses in my lifetime, much through box holes as we were taught back in school.  Once in medical school we looked at one through an xray!  But […]


Silver Spur and Cascade Meadows RV Resorts….

We were so looking forward to visiting Bend again…we really enjoyed it on our way up and thought it would be fun to visit it on our way down and see some falls and do some hikes.  On our way down from Washington we had to take a night in Salem…so not to drive too much at one time…so we decided to do a two night […]


Oceana RV Resorts…

This was the last of our Washington Resorts…I was really looking forward to getting back to the coast…I missed the ocean.  This was a small resort with no internet service…neither AT&T or Verizon worked here.  So, Doug had to drive a few miles over and park on the Beach…yep the beach to get service so he could work.  I guess there’s a first for everything. It […]


Thunderbird and Travel Inn Resorts…

Thunderbird Resort, another Thousand Trails Resort on our journey through Washington.  This resort was split in two on either side of the road.  The river side did not have full hookups but it sure was spacious.  So we choose to stay on the river side…which was away from the amenities but it was just a short walk across the road to them.  They had a large […]


Birch Bay RV Resort…

The view from the bay at Birch Bay RV park, looks like a watercolor sunset.  Our visit to this park was interesting to say the least…they had a Phase 1 and 11 in their park, Phase 11 was obviously built to accomodate the larger rigs that are available these days.  But…because of TT’s policy that we are free to choose any site that’s available (they do […]


Grandy Creek RV Resort…

For a Thousand Trails resort…Grandy Creek really surprised us…it was very well kept, the staff was very attentive to everyone’s needs.  This was also a KOA…somehow they both shared the same park, maybe this is what made it so different.  Although, I soon found out that KOA members had to pay extra for all the amenities…I don’t know much about the KOA membership but now I […]
