Today we drove around Denver and headed north along the Front Range of the Rockies. It was killing me not to stop and drive up to Idaho Springs to show Carla and the kids where I’ve been! There just wasn’t enough time, since I was working today. We also want to save that for when … More 1 Year Journey – Colorado / Wyoming
Yesterday we crossed over into Colorado. This is the first time Carla and the kids have been in the state, and one more we can check off on our list of states we’ve taken an RV! We stayed at the KOA in Limon, about an hour east of Denver. Tripp and I took some photos … More 1 Year Journey – Colorado
We left Van Buren, Arkansas this morning. We already miss our families and friends! It was so good to get to spend a few weeks with them. We will see you all via Skype soon!

We headed toward Vicksburg, MS… …and about 20 miles outside of Hattiesburg, our RV decided to have a new problem. Carla had pulled over in front of a gas station so we could change drivers. I was going to drive for an hour during my lunch break. Keep in mind, this was the only place … More 1 Year Journey – Mississippi Slideout Scare, Arkansas
Today, we FINALLY got the new Truma AquaGo water heater installed, which works great!! I’m thinking of using the original Atwood water heater for target practice, or possibly a boat anchor, or maybe take it out to a field and demolish it like they did with the printer in “Office Space”. Ah, bay 94, moments … More 1 Year Journey – Leaving Florida
We came to Tampa to have some repairs made at Lazy Days RV, including swapping out our Atwood water heater with a Truma AquaGo! What a huge RV place this is! Nothing else like it. Unfortunately, it seems to be on par with most service centers in terms of custoner service and quality of work. … More 1 Year Journey – Florida – Tampa / Clearwater Beach
As we come to the end of our time in Orlando, Carla and I celebrated our 14th anniversary this past week! We happened to be changing RV parks on our actual anniversary, and Tripp was sick that day also, so we didn’t do much to celebrate. The next night we went to Medieval Times, which … More 1 Year Journey – Florida – Wrapping up Orlando
Today marks day 51 of our one year journey. It’s bizzarre that today I happened to calculate the number of days we’ve been traveling, because 51 days is exactly how long we were gone last year on our longest trip! That means, as of tomorrow, we are breaking our record for the longest time in … More 1 Year Journey – Breaking our Record!
This morning, we checked out of Disney’s Fort Wilderness and broke free from the clutches of the mouse!! We headed to a Freightliner service center to have a recall part installed for the power steering hose and to have our generator maintenance performed. We then made a decision to kill time in the Orlando area … More 1 Year Journey – Florida – Killing Time in Orlando
When we traded in our last RV, I kept the Wi-Fi Ranger I had installed on it. I recently also bought the new Weboost 4G-X RV cellular booster as well. After performing an initial test to confirm the cellular booster performs as advertised, which it did, I wanted to figure out a way to mount […]
I thought I would post an update with some photos of our time at Disney World. We’ve been having a lot of fun, and not trying to cram too much in everyday. Having season passes and having lots of time in Florida makes Disney so much more enjoyable, since you’re not trying to squeeze so … More 1 Year Journey – Florida – More Disney World!
Avin turned 10 today! Can’t believe it. He was so excited to wake up, open presents, and head to the park! First stop, Buzz Lightyear’s Spin-out! The kids really like this ride! We read about a secret you can shoot that is right below the giant Zurg toward the end, which gives you 100,000 … More 1 Year Journey – Florida – Avin’s 10th Birthday!
Today, we spent the afternoon at SeaWorld. We were a little too tired to do it, but we had already purchased tickets and our time in Florida is coming to an end. Plus, it was supposed to be cloudy, so probably a good day to be outside! We rode on a really neat penguin ride! … More 1 Year Journey – Florida – SeaWorld
We spent a few hours trekking around EPCOT yesterday. We didn’t have much time to really do a whole lot, but it was fun to see the park for a while anyway! The kids were excited to meet some characters they had not seen in a few years! On to the Nemo ride! They always … More 1 Year Journey – Florida -WDW EPCOT
We spend a couple of hours at Hollywood Studios last night. It wasn’t as humid as the night before at Magic Kingdom, which was nice! Storm Troopers on patrol! Really cool! On to Star Tours! We got to see a new Star Tours movie based on a scene from The Force Awakens, which was REALLY … More 1 Year Journey – Florida – Walt Disney World Part 2
One of the major highlights on our trip has begun! This evening, we picked up our annual passes (discount for Florida residents!) and we spent a couple of hours in Magic Kingdom after I got off work. Just another Thursday night, right? We are loving being full time in the RV…such freedom! We had a … More 1 Year Journey – Florida – Walt Disney World!

We have blog entries going clear back to the beginning of our travels, which are fun to go back and look at! Even the stressful moments! … More Looking Back at 17,000 Miles of RVing
We drove to a KOA in Kissimmee, FL today. Really clean park with plenty of space in between sites. After getting set up, we headed to an airboat tour of the Everglades headwaters, which was an absolutely amazing experience!! The airboat tour company is called Orlando Airboat Rides with Marsh Landing Adventures (http://orlandoairboattours.com). The … More 1 Year Journey – Florida – Everglades Airboat Tour
After a lot of research and reading reviews about different LED light strips, I finally found one that I think will be a good fit for our RV. It is waterproof and has a silicone covering over the whole light strip. Also has an RF transmitter so that you can be inside the RV when … More Installing LED Underbody Lights
