AN RV PHOTO TRAVELOGUE with TRAVEL ADVENTURISTS
We are Norm and Lisa, Those “Young” Guys!
Yep, that’s us, we are the “Young Guys”. To steal a quote from “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”, “Who Are Those Guys?“, well it is us, Those Young Guys.
Now how do we make this “About” short and sweet. Let’s say we start with the usual question, “How did you meet?” and we will make it short and snappy. While Norm was working and living in The Hague, The Netherlands and Lisa was working and living in London, England they, by chance (or was it fate or maybe it was a setup? Thanks Amy!), met on a ski trip in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy in Feb 2001, The New Millennium.
After that a long distance courtship began and as Norm says, “It was the first time that he needed to use a passport for every date”. A few short years later they were married in Scotland and their married adventures began.
After a combined total of 60 years of working, traveling to 40 different countries, and way too much time spent traveling for work in airplanes, we decided to retire and hit the road in our RV and/or motorcycle and see North America, one day at a time!
We purchased a small motorhome (22′ Leisure Travel Van Free Spirit) in 2008 and began our journeys.
After a few years we decided to grow up and we purchased a big rig (40′ Alfa See Ya).
This brought about a new set of challenges with higher cost of fuel and more limitations on where we could park. We love the advantages of both sizes but kind of feel like Goldilocks, the small one is too small and the big one is too big. So we then went out and bought a Class C, a Winnebago View 24D.
We also enjoying taking the motorcycle on journeys, along with bicycle rides, hiking, boating, skiing, basically anything that gets us outside and moving.
In the meantime, we have always documented our journeys, keeping tracking of RV Parks and campgrounds, mileage, fuel used, costs, and taking lots of photos. We use this website to continue tracking and sharing our journey.
Key for our Campground/RV Park Review Posts:
For those posts which reference campgrounds or RV parks we specify the cost per night that we paid including any reservation fee, tax, and/or discount such as Good Sam, Interagency Pass, etc. All costs are in US Dollars unless otherwise specified. CAD refers to the Canadian Dollar.
For services, if we specify FHU that means Full HookUps which is electric, water, and sewer.
E is electric.
W is water.
Dry camping means no services.
When AMPs are listed for the campsite it will be denoted at the max they offered not necessarily what we used, i.e., our current rig is 30AMP but if the campsite offers 50AMP then 50AMP will be listed.
We have a Menu item for Campground Maps. That provide an image of the campground site maps which are not available online or are difficult to get.
