  1. We are having more fun on the water. Jet skiing, paddle boarding and picking up floating river trash! Pirate Cove Resort is pretty amazing they have everything you could ask for. If you hang around till the end of this video you can see the amazing sunsets the area has to offer. We also give a quick resort summary/ review! Our thoughts on the place, let us know if you have any questions! Hope you enjoy the video!
  2. ✪✪✪In this video✪✪✪ We head to the Colorado River with friends for a long hot weekend. This is a family trip that our friends do every year and we happen to keep getting invited! While we were there the temperatures were ranging from 100-120 degrees! It's safe to say that we had to get a little creative considering that our trailer only has one A/C unit. This video has so much fun packed in, boating, volleyball, swimming and much more.↩ Also stick around till the very end, we save a Prius! From a sand pit, our friends took a wrong turn at night. We ended up going on a rescue mission! Hope you enjoy the video!
  3. We drove all the way across the country for a wedding! Dang we clean up nice, we are ready for wedding festivities. Congratulations Matt and Natalie! The following day we install some Air Lift airbags that are much needed. We hope the bags level the truck, as well as help with chucking. The install is quite simple, especially when you have a garage like my dad's! Hope you enjoy this video, have you installed air bags?
  4. We do a walk through of the Keystone Carbon 364 Toy Hauler (38' 3 slides). This is pretty significant for us because we have been looking into a new rig for awhile. There have been a few issues that have been adding up with our 2015 Keystone Cougar 313 ril and we thought our stay in our home town of Simi Valley would be a great time to take a look at new rigs. Here's a list of the issues we are having with our current rig. 1. Separate office space. 2. on board generator. 3. Fresh water capacity. 4. Good storage area for our bikes. 5. A place for quests to stay when visiting. 6.Being able to easily walk around the bed. There are a few others things that we have considered also, this is just a walk through. When RVing full-time smaller problems often seem as larger ones, so we figured we should address them as soon as possible. Also buying your first rig is extremely stressful and you can never find everything you want. Hope you enjoy the video!
  5. We pull out of our dispersed camping location near Mammoth Lakes California. It was not too bad getting out of our spot, having a larger 5th wheel we ALWAYS need to be careful of our over head height. While on the drive home we reflect and talk about how we feel about being back. We hit the road in order to see what this country had to offer. Melissa and myself have never left our home town for longer than a couple weeks, this was quite the experience. Returning to our home town of Simi Valley California we have a mixed bag of emotions. Hope you enjoy the video and please stay tuned into to the channel to see what happens with our full-timing lifestyle!!
  6. Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest is quite amazing, lot's of sage brush and rolling hills. We stop here for a quick night , the higher elevation helps with the extreme summer heat. In the morning we bring the drone up real quick just to take a look around. After 6 months we are finally back in California it's a strange feeling, it's the longest we have ever been away from California and our home town of Simi Valley. We find a great boondocking spot inside Inyo National forest just a 10 minute drive from Mammoth Lakes CA. While we are there for only a week, we get a bit too relaxed with our water supply and end up running out! Hope you enjoy this video!
  7. My toad was rear ended - total loss. No one was hurt, fortunately, but I need a replacement to tow behind my motorhome. Hoping to find a toad all set to go in Northern California. levye1@hotmail.com
  8. It's the hottest, driest place in North America, and the lowest elevation in the Western Hemisphere. Yet if you look hard enough, you can spot signs of life everywhere in Death Valley, life that has adapted to this harsh climate. While we're not the biggest fans of national parks, we loved Death Valley, and Episode 77 is our most ambitious video undertaking yet. Just by leaving asphalt, you can easily leave the crowds behind and have a solitary experience in this spectacular desert landscape. We camp at the luxurious Nevada Treasure RV Resort in Pahrump, Nevada while we visit Dante's View, Twenty Mule Team Canyon, Furnace Creek, Badwater Basin, Artist's Palette,Titus Canyon, Leadfield and The Racetrack in Death Valley National Park to see the famed Sailing Stones, as well as the ghost town of Rhyolite and wild burros in Beatty, both outside the park:

  10. Jojoba Hills in Aguanga, CA, is one of our favorite places to stay... ever! We'll be heading that way to stay our four week max beginning the second week of February (we were there in January of 2016). When we leave, we want to head north toward Park of the Sierras near Coarsegold, CA. On the way, my wife wants to spend some time seeing the coast. We (I guess I should say "I") pull a 36' fifth wheel and my wife follows in a Toyota. I have traveled the coastal highway(s), but many, many years ago (the last time in the early '80s... in a '65 Mustang convertible, no less!). From memory and what I've read on the various forums, much of the coastal roads (? 101, Hwy 1, etc.) are not routes one would want to take with a large towable. My questions are these: between Temecula and Vandenberg AFB, how wise is it to pull the rig on I-15/I-210 to get on 101 up to VAFB? From VAFB, is 101 over to Paso Robles OK? If it's a no-go on both of these routes, where would you recommend staying to make day trips over to the coast in the car? I have disc brakes on the fiver and an engine brake on the truck, but I really don't enjoy white knuckle driving or having traffic stack up behind me on two-lane roads. Your experience and input are valuable! Thanks, Rob
  11. My partner Rhapsody & I are heading out on a journey from South East Texas (beginning of June 2016) westward through New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Nevada, California & landing in southwestern Oregon for an event in July 2016 in our BFT powered RV & are wondering if we can connect with WVO burners along the way who can provide filtered & dewatered (preferably centrifuged) Waste Vegetable Oil. Let me know if you can help us not burn dino-fuel for this trip. Thanks!
  12. Hello everyone. I hope this is the correct place to put this. I will be going to school (MBA) for a year in Escondido, CA and live in AZ. My school cost is pretty much covered, but the issue is rent. Quite expensive in that area. I have been considering boondocking, as this is my goal anyway-full timing in an RV. So here are my concerns and questions. Please let me know what you think, advise, etc. I have a dog-an 80lb shepherd mix. Very well trained, rarely barks, very housebroken... she is my best buddy and there is NO way I will give her to anyone else. I don't have an RV yet. I drive a Toyota FJ Cruiser (5,000lb tow rating). I would like a Class C motorhome, but unless it's a diesel it won't tow the 4,800lb FJ on a trailer (can't flat tow an FJC). So I am looking at alternatives. I have considered a travel trailer until I can afford perhaps a used diesel Super C. My concerns are leaving my dog in the trailer/rv while I am in class. From what I understand classes are in the afternoon/evening so I am thinking leaving some windows open with running fantastic fan vents on solar could work, along with perhaps an app on my phone to remotely monitor temperature in the camper. On days where I have to go to LA I can put Jedda in a doggie day care. Has anyone here done this? Any suggestions/advice? Thanks!
  13. Last year we did the Great Lakes and this year we are doing the West Coast. We have spent lots of time in the past 5 years in Oregon and Washington and will be returning there but we decided to start in our old home town of San Diego and travel north. We left the Co-op park Kofa in Yuma on February 22. We are still seeing lighthouses and enjoying the magnificent coast line of California. Follow along with us by reading our blog: www.Mytripjournal.com/OnTheRoadWithRickAndKaren Hope you enjoy it. Safe travels everyone Karen

  15. I planning to leave Atlanta in June and wander over to the northwest coast spending the majority of the fall and winter there. Should I buy chains for my 20014 Dodge Ram truck and do I need them for the trailer, too? I have to be at Fort Stevens in Oregon for two weeks ending on the 5th of September. Would I still have time to cross over the Cascades and do more sightseeing in Washington or Idaho and be able to get back before worrying too much about snow. If I do need chains, should I buy them from the Dodge dealer here, in Atlanta, or wait until I'm out west. I'm sure like everything else, price is higher at dealers, but where else could I buy them and have them installed. Would I be better off buying snow tires? Thanks for the advice I always get from this great group. (Go easy on me. I've never been west in the winter. My husband would have known how to put chains on, but I have no clue so I might need to practice a few times).
  16. We love nature,hikes,waterfalls,natural hot springs,musi and history. Our next RV summer trip (from July-October) will start from LA and ends near Portland. There is so much to see in a short time (4 Months only) so please help me out and suggest based on our interests what to see,where to camp (no boondocking). Thank you
