Solar Panels

We knew when purchasing a new motorhome there would be modifications and upgrades that we would want to make to make the vehicle more like a home and be able to provide a more comfortable lifestyle.

Orchard Canyon at Oak Creek provided exactly that.   Orchard Canyon at Oak Creek is a lovely, romantic lodge nestled in Oak Creek Canyon north of Sedona and provides cabins for rent and …

Blake Ranch Kingman Arizona

We drove south from Valley of Fire State Park through Lake Mead National Recreation Area (NRA) to Kingman, Arizona. We like to drive through the Lake Mead NRA instead of through Las Vegas as it makes for a beautiful, quiet, peaceful drive. We love it there.   We continued east  on I-40  past Kingman for about 15 miles to the …

Kershaw-Ryan State Park Nevada

Our goal, as we headed to southern Nevada, was to find a campground with electric so we could run our A/C. Yes, we are spoiled. It was still really hot out in the south as it was early September. We had our eyes set on Cathedral Gorge State Park campground, which has electric, but they had a flash flood earlier …
