The Surprising Beauty of Newfoundland

Doug and JoAnn Dubrouillet can’t recall how they decided to visit Newfoundland – a raw, rocky island with a fierce, independent streak located just off the coast of Quebec, Can. But it was likely the good reviews they kept hearing from other RVers, who had nothing but raves for the unblemished simplicity of Canada’s easternmost province. The Dubrouillets were no […]

Making Memories on Lake Texoma

As grandparents, Dick and Loni Harris believe a little adventure goes a long way toward building lifelong memories.

Journey in Search of America

  Many RVers dream of the day they can chuck the house and job to embrace full-time RVing. It’s just that not everyone actually gets around to it. Meet Bill Brown and Susan Dona, a couple living the dream. Two years ago, Brown and Dona were playing it safe. Both were in their 50s, had established careers, and were working […]

In Search of the Wild, Wild West

Bill and Wilma Drew are big fans of classic American Westerns – they even subscribe to an all-Western television channel.

Last year, the Drews merged both interests with an RVing adventure built around cruising the great American West in search of very familiar […]

Easy Living, Lasting Friendships at Myrtle Beach

Big Bend and Beyond in Texas

So when the opportunity came this past winter to explore southern Texas, the northeastern Pennsylvania couple decided to shake off the ice and snow and roll down to a warmer climate for a few months. Anchoring their truck camper at the Lost Alaskan […]

Exploring a Sublime Strand of National Parks in the Canadian Rockies

Last year, Richard and Donna Apple decided to pursue what they’d been told was “the most beautiful scenery in the world” with a trip deep into the Canadian Rockies. Ten thousand miles later, they weren’t disappointed. The Apples, who live in Western Florida, packed up their fifth-wheel, grabbed their two golden retrievers, shrugged at some of the highest diesel fuel […]

Las Vegas Boulevard- May be the Brightest Official Scenic Byway in the Nation

By night, this famous chunk of concrete from Washington Avenue to Sahara Avenue – shimmers supernaturally with the neon glow cast from thousands of glaring, blinking, sputtering casino lights. The three-mile “Vegas strip” definitely offers its own kind of eye-popping scenery and plenty of local history, with long-standing casinos, landmark architecture, museums and wedding chapels, all stuffed into the very […]

In Search of the Promised Land in Pennsylvania

Betty Deloney was a newcomer to RVing when she joined her daughter and granddaughter on her first tour of New England in a Class C motorhome. The journey took them on a grand sweep of the eastern seaboard, from Maryland up to Maine. The scenery and camping were memorable. But it was on the return trip home that Deloney and […]

The Quiet CHARM of Minnesota’s Amish Country

Pat Raines swears there’s always been a touch of “vagabond gypsy” in her blood. So her plan was to retire, buy an RV and hit the road when she turned 70. Then one morning, she awoke and thought, “Why wait?” Inspired by favorite author John Steinbeck, she sold her house, gave away her furniture, bought a 22-foot class B motorhome, […]
