OUCH – Face plant in Winona, Minnesota, Across Mississippi to Wisconsin Dells

Video 15 of our Series, Around the USA in 90 Days!

Once in a while it’s okay to RV overnight in a Walmart (Winona, Minnesota) and the nearby lake was beautiful. Bad news – don’t run wide open with your dog on wet grass chasing a squirrel into a tree! Meanwhile, after crossing the Mississippi we enjoyed spending some time in the Wisconsin Dells before heading to Indiana.

Video 10 of our Series, Around the USA in 90 Days!

As we left Yellowstone Park heading North-East, we spent the night at the Crazy Creek Campground. Continuing North to Billings, we climbed, climbed and climbed some more in our RV before reaching Beartooth Mountain Pass at a whopping 10,947 feet high! Best of all, our Siberian Husky Kaliki loved the opportunity to frolic in the snow – overlooking mountain sheep and an abundance of pristine lakes.

Grand Tetons, Yellowstone Falls, Old Faithful, Buffalo’s Up Close

Video 10 of our Series, Around the USA in 90 Days!

After wrapping up our tour of the Grand Tetons (North of Jackson Lake), we entered Southern Yellowstone for an awesome “spin around the Park.” Yellowstone Falls had dramatic views and of course Old Faithful Geyser is not to be missed, complete with an insightful Park Ranger talk. Best of all, in the Lamar Valley we spotted herds of thousands of Buffalo’s, and even had one walk up to us in our RV!

From BIG Bears to young cubs, Bear World does not disappoint! So if you’re heading East to Yellowstone National Park , we highly recommend checking out this treasure where wildlife is preserved and allowed to run free in a safe, friendly environment. And you are going to LOVE the playful bear cubs wrestling, running and drinking milk from a bottle held by park visitors.

While cruising up the Pacific Ocean, we stopped for a day trip at the Auto Safari in Chapin, Guatemala,.

Lots to see including giraffes, lions, hippos, alligators, monkeys, reptiles (yeah, snakes, too), birds and more. cTv RV Life – no, but a fantastic respite to enjoy the good life!

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 – Drone hunting Wildflowers at Arvin and Lebec, California
