Video 36 of our Series, Around the USA in 90 Days!
FINALLY, on our RV trip around America we are treated to spectacular fall colors along the Kancamagus highway while in the White Mountain National Park. We can hardly contain our excitement. Join us as we drive through the state of “Live Free or Die”, New Hampshire.
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.
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…
With tons of snow, we head for Truckee for snow play and Donner Lake with our drone at 7:32 . Of course our Siberian Husky Kaliki (from Alaska) has a fantastic time feeling he’s “back home” again! Let us know what you think in the comments below, should we move to the snow?
At long last, we head for snow country in the Sierras. Wanting to avoid frozen pipes or tanks, we spent the first night at Colfax, Long Ravine Campground. We enjoyed the beautiful lake view, drone video footage and…Grace demonstrated The fine art of face plants (fortunate it was in sawdust). And of course life happens when we’re making plans – dealing with a new rattle to repair in our Class C motor home.
Heading home after our 18 day trip, we leave Bakersfield to swing by… Visalia (?) of all places. Could we be making a sidetrip to the Sequoia National Redwood Forest? (nope) So it turns out Grace has a “special” engagement party planned with…(stay tuned). Also, while we enjoyed our overnight stays at a handful of Elks Lodges during our trip, at 5:45 we point out a potential downside as we witnessed at Bakersfield (yet great folks inside the Club!)
California Travel Videos gives Grace two thumbs way up on our getaway to Joshua Tree National Park! Everywhere you look are beautiful views and photograph opportunities. It’s also offers excellent challenges for the aspiring mountain climber and Kaliki gives a few of the mondogranite boulders a try (staying within the 100 foot required range of the roadway).
Excitement today – starting off with a drone flight over La Posa, then off to visit with Escapees Xscapers Quartzsite Convergence to climb the “big hill” and finish the day with a bonfire to cheer on the Scavenger Hunt award winners – awesome group and wish we didn’t have to leave our new friends so soon…
Oops, hit snow at Manzanita Lake (5890 feet) in Mt Lassen National Park. So while we couldn’t stay overnight (closed) our Siberian Husky Kaliki had a blast doing what Arctic Dogs are born to do. So after playtime we headed down to Redding on shore of the Sacramento River and did our RV Life overnighter… actually two nights so we could see Shasta Dam and the Sundial Bridge.
