    Oh oh! Did I wait too long

    We stay at a campground just outside West Yellowstone. I love Yellowstone and being in the park, but also like to have at least electric. We stay at Henrys Lake State Park in Island Park, ID.

    Uh Oh! Another One Goes to the Dark Side!

    We don't have solar as of yet, our amount of dry camping doesn't make it overly cost effective for me as of yet. I had 300W of solar on my TT, but left them on there when I sold it. The MH is "Solar-Ready" so, I have a plug on the outside for a specific brand of Solar Suitcase type thing, which...

    Uh Oh! Another One Goes to the Dark Side!

    Welcome to the Dark Side! We have a 12v Fridge and we find that it will kill our batteries overnight, they may be efficient, but I don't see it. I would much rather a 2 way fridge for boon docking. Requires us to run the genset a lot more than I would like for quiet, forest camping. Everything...

    Jumped into the Dark Side

    Well, After having several pop-ups, and then moving into a camper van and then a travel trailer, we took a huge plunge and bought a 30' Class C Motorhome! It fits with how we want to travel now. I am hoping to still be welcome around the campfire...both virtual and in person at rallies. :)...

    Yellowstone 2017

    We took only Wed-Fri to get there, which was a really fast pace with 4 drivers and 2 vehicles. I would recommend slowing that down a bit. We were at Henry's Lake for 5 nights, with 3 days in Yellowstone and a couple of days around the area in Idaho. We found a nice river to drop the kids into...

    Yellowstone 2017

    It was a combination of the fact that we came in at night, how far off the beaten path it was, and the fact that there were almost no people visible through the whole stay.

    Yellowstone 2017

    Well, I have been meaning to do this, but life happened and I kept forgetting to get on here and actually post about the trip. We packed up 6 adults and 6 kids and headed West with 2 vehicles and a trailer. We had an absolutely awesome time. We stayed in Idaho at Henry's Lake State Park and it...

    Virginia Pop-Ups Unite!

    Not sure I would be able to make a trip next year as I am still financially recovering from my caravan out to Idaho this past summer, but I am up for the weekend warrior trips in VA. I live in Prince William County.

    Crazy Horse For the 4th

    I used to go there as a kid, and then as a grown up I went every year for Labor Day weekend until they sold it. Haven't been there since. I enjoyed the campground, there are not a lot of bathrooms, however, it is a nice quiet campground.
