Don’t miss the Acapulco daredevil sea cliff divers descent 100 feet into a narrow, shallow sea inlet!  This is our fourth stop heading north after cruising the Panama Canal.  On our 4 hour day trip, we also enjoyed seeing the Chapel of Peace, John Wayne’s hacienda, the nearby historic fortress and more. Three more cruise stops before returning to RV Life.

cTv Cruise Trip Planning, Packing Video and Photo Travel Gear

Michael – Oh boy, time to pack up video, photo, audio, computer gear for our upcoming cruise trip from Miami to San Francisco via the Panama Canal.  The big questions are:  Will everything fit and will I actually use all this #$%^&* stuff???

 Grace – The mission, (should I choose to accept it) is an 18 day repositioning cruise through Continue reading

cTv RV Life, Drone Time, Anza Borrego, Wildflower Super-bloom

Michael – Wow, on our 3rd day drone shooting the wildflower super-bloom, we headed south all the way down past the Salton Sea to Anza Borrego State Park.  Compared to Lancaster and Palmdale, you definitely realize this *is* the desert (millions of migrating caterpillars/SPHINX MOTHS) but in March the temperatures were fair enough.  With little time to do it all, unfortunately we missed the desert museum until the blue hour – maybe next trip.

Grace – It was a spontaneous decision to venture further south another 200 miles, another Continue reading

cTv RV Life – Wildflower Super-bloom, Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve, drone video

Michael – Seeing the wildflower pop in the Spring is one thing – hunting a spectacular SUPER-BLOOM is something else!  Traveling to southern California paid huge dividends to capture mega-awesome photos, videos and drone footage at the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve!

Grace – I had stumbled upon this place while thumbing through our Instagram feed.  It Continue reading

cTv RV Life – Drone hunting Wildflowers at Arvin and Lebec, California

Michael – What – travel 400+ miles to hunt flowers growing in the wild at Arvin and Lebec? Yeah, sometimes it’s wise for a husband to pick up a few “atta boys” and get a chance to fly his drone! Turned out to be an awesome 3 day RV Life trip with spectacular wildflowers so we extended an extra day, going South ANOTHER 100+ miles! Stay tuned – we have two more stops in future shows…

Grace – When we were coming home from San Diego early in February I had told Michael Continue reading

cTv RV Life – Playing in Old Town Sacramento, California

In downtown Sacramento after seeing the Capitol and Crocker Art Museum, we topped off the day enjoying the good life in Old Sacramento – This town came to life during the “Gold Rush” days and after a major face lift in the 1960’s it was listed as a National Historic Landmark District.  Find out about the Pony Expresses and much more in our latest video. A great place to divert from traditional RV Life and shop, play, eat and dine with fellow tourists.

cTv RV Life, inspirational Crocker Art Museum – Sacramento, California

Ready to enjoy creativity and inspiration? Great, you’ll love inside the Sacramento Crocker Art Museum. Edwin and his wife Margaret Crocker began collecting art from the gold rush days in 1869.   cTv takes you inside the longest continuously-operating art museum in the west to show you a quick peek of some of their favorite masterpieces. Conveniently located at 16 O St. in downtown Sacramento.  A beautiful addition was added in 2010 when more space was needed to house the ever growing art collection.
