Those Young Guys - Wildlife in The North

It’s that time of year when many RVers are working away busily preparing (if not already on their way) for their long awaited trip to Alaska, the wild frontier!  When talking to other RVers, the subject of “Driving to Alaska” comes up now and again as we sit around the campfire.  The discussions usually revolve around “the routes, campgrounds, roads, …

Garmin GPS opening unit

My latest little project has been replacing the battery in our Garmin GPS. We have been using this Garmin GPSMAP 276C since 2003 and although it is old we haven’ t found one that has functions that we like any better.  The main things we like are that it is waterproof so we can use it on the motorcycle as …

Those Young Guys - Alfa See Ya Motorhome - Delamination

Yep, we encountered a bit of delamination on a few of our side doors on our motorhome. We think it happened last winter when we had to make an emergency trip to the snowy, cold north and the doors must have had water in them and then froze. Boom, there you go, some delamination appeared on one side and just …

We love boon docking and/or dry camping since we both like to get away from the big RV parks and do hiking and exploring in the less crowded areas so I started thinking how we could improve the experience. We have a 40′ DP which has a 7.5 kVA diesel generator so we had lots of power but it is …

Why We Love our Alfa Class A

We had been RV’ing for a few years in our Class B motorhome and decided we wanted to try a bigger motorhome to allow us to spend longer stretches of time in one place, more like living in the RV instead of just traveling in it. Therefore we bought a Class A Motorhome, a 2004 Alfa See Ya. We, of …

Leisure Travel Van Free Spirit

We bought our Leisure Travel Van (also known as an LTV) a few years ago and called him “Wally” and we recently traded him in (sob, sob) for a much larger Class A motorhome. We miss Wally dearly so I thought I should dedicate a post to him and highlight the pros and cons about owning a Class B. And …

Those Young Guys - Hydralift

Well, we finally did it. After researching and researching and researching on the best way to haul a motorcycle we finally decided to break down and buy a hydralift. They are expensive but we found one on ebay in Southern Oregon. The owner was gracious enough to meet us halfway so we rented a U-Haul trailer and drove to Biggs …

Those Young Guys in Bug Suits

Hard to head north without a supply of bug clothes. As a matter of fact I guess you could say the same about the southeast United States. Oh well, whatever, when you have lots of insects and want to spend a lot of time outdoors then Bug Suits are your answer! We bought both top and bottoms from: https://www.bugshirt.com/ Worked …

Dummies Guide to Class B Motorhomes

Yep, I had to do it. I needed to get my thoughts together to figure out how this darn Class B motorhome works. So I created my own Dummies guide along with a checklist. Not sure if it is accurate but it allowed me to ask my husband how things worked and document it for myself. Note: This is particular …
