Valley of Fire in an RV

Wednesday, December 7th, 2016

Valley of FIre As the oldest and largest state park in the US, and one that is open all year, it’s a great getaway. Only 6 miles from Lake Mead and 55 miles northeast of Las Vegas, the park showcases ancient trees, petrified wood and 3,000 year-old Indian petroglyphs. Red sandstone formations formed from the sand dunes shifting 150 million years ago, hence the name Valley of Fire.

With summer temps exceeding 100-120 degrees, and mild winters, with temperatures ranging from freezing to 75 degrees, makes this a great winter camping destination.

Valley of FIre If you’re looking for more information on each rock point and some greta points of interest, visit: valley-of-fire.com. Each rock formation is fabulous on it’s own and the stories behind just add to the enchantment. The petrified wood and animals that cohabitate in this area are a worth the drive to explore.

 

The desert is extremely fragile so remember to pack out absolutely everything that you pack in leaving no trace and preserving this wondrous destination for years to come.

Valley of FIre If you’re looking to extend the exploration, campsites are available. RV camping with power and water hookups are also now available if you’re looking to add a little luxury to your stay. Camping is limited to 14 days in a 30 day period and we offer a number of budget RV’s to suit the journey.

10 Tips to Survive Disneyland in an RV

Friday, August 14th, 2015

As you’re sitting around your kitchen table discussing with the family where the next big trip to go, the kids always chant… Disneyland, Disneyland! And why not! There’s so much to see and do. Why not make it an adventure like no other and make it a road trip?

Disneyland
Here are our top 10 tips to surviving Disneyland in an RV:

  1. Where to stay? Are there RV Resorts close by? Sure there are! Check out this link for the top resorts with the best reviews.
  2. Enjoy the view. Don’t forget to enjoy the views during your drive. No matter where you are coming from, California has some amazing sights that shouldn’t be missed. Especially if you’re driving along the coast!
  3. How long are the lines? If you’re wondering how long am I going to wait in this line for, there’s this handy little app called MouseWait that will tell you all you need to know!
  4. But where do I park when I get there?! Check out this link on where to park if you don’t have a shuttle service at your RV resort (some resorts offer shuttle service to and from Disneyland. Be sure to check that out before taking parking.)
  5. When to visit. If you’re wondering when is the least busy time to visit, there is a formula for that! Whenever school is in and during the week. That’s your best chance at missing the huge crowds.
  6. Preplan.  Since you’ve decided to travel all that way to get to Disneyland, make sure to do some pre-planning and buy your tickets online and book your resort before hand. Purchasing tickets at the front gate is the most expensive spot. Check out this site for some great deals.
  7. Food and drinks. There are so many fun and amazing foods you can cook in an RV (stay tuned for our next blog post on all kinds of fun ideas) but can you bring outside food into the park? You sure CAN! As much as you want. Just don’t try to bring in a cooler or anything bigger then 24″x15″x18″. And no alcohol.
  8. Home away from home. One of the best things about bringing an RV is that you can lounge and nap at your leisure. No need to leave the room during mousekeeping. And no need to pack and unpack during your trip!
  9. Where to stay along the drive.  If you are going to a number of National Parks and State Parks then look at getting the Interagency Annual Pass for USD $80 rather than having to pay $20 or $30 per park. This all depends on how long your drive is, obviously.
  10. Enjoy the drive. Don’t forget about all of the other fun stops to make during your journey. Check out these fun roadside attractions and historic sites.

Tips and Tricks for Off Grid Rv’ing

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

One of the best things in life, I find, is getting outdoors. Seeing and surrounding yourself with nature. It’s uplifting, energizing and extremely peaceful. People are generally happier in nature and actively seek out the cottage lifestyle to get away from the busy buzz of the bright city lights.

Being surrounded by lakes, mountains, trees, wherever you are, I always feel the need to leave everything as it is while I spend my time outdoors. As traveling is such a passion, what better way to travel through nature than by unplugging and going completely off grid? There are no distractions, you can soak in the stars and learn to truly appreciate your surroundings.

So, what are some tips and tricks to going Off the Grid, Boondocking, Off the Cord, Dry Camping, or a favorite of mine, Wild Camping (because camping in the wild… fun!)?

How to Take Yourself Off Grid?

Off the Grid RV'ing

Electricity
Although it would be ideal to not have to use electricity at all, working from the road is often a reality, as are many of the niceties that come in an RV. I’ve found that solar is the best bet for generating electricity. Solar panel’s aren’t too finicky anymore and for those just starting out there are a range of portable ones that will suit just fine. Also, switching to LED lights and energy efficient appliances is a big help on the electricity drain.

Water
Drinking Water: Clean drinking water is the most important necessity to have while traveling. Investing in a purifier can be a game changer and provide easy access to clean water if you are uncertain about the quality.

Showering and Faucets: Switching to low flow faucets and using aerators are a big water saver. If you’re looking for something other than a cold shower, take a look at the variety of solar showers available and soak up some warmth at the same time!

Greywater: Greywater can fill up faster then you’re prepared for. Make sure to switch to biodegradable soaps and cleaners for everything you use. This makes reusing the water to water your plants or keep dust down around the camp site easy as pie – just use a watering can. Remember that dumping your greywater and leaving a giant puddle behind is illegal, so reusing the water or investing in an evaporation pond is the way to go.

Blackwater: Dealing with blackwater can be a bit of a tough one. Converting your toilet to a composting one can be done and is an excellent option, check out this article on converting your toilet here.

Leave no Trace
By far the most important thing to keep in mind when going off grid is to remember to leave no trace. That means, picking up and packing out everything that you bring with you. Your camp site should be left as if you weren’t even there. Many parks and wilderness areas are being destroyed by people simply not picking up after themselves. It’s such an easy thing to do and cutting back on trash can be easily accomplished by using reusable containers and eating fresh foods.

Free Camping

A great way to save some money on your next holiday is to check out free camping locations. If you are looking for a place to spend some time there is a lot of public land out there that we are entitled to use. I think that these sites offer some of the most beautiful and serene camping locations that you will find. If you are just looking for a place to get a few hours of sleep before you move on there are a lot of parking lots and truck stops that will be suitable.

Below is a collection of websites, some of which you can add your favorite free camping sites too. So let’s keep camping the way it should be, free.

RV Rentals For Going to Burning Man

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

Heads Up! I just checked our website this morning for availability for RV Rentals Going To Burning Man. Although some companies are stating that they are sold out for the burning man festival time period, there are others who still have  a few units.  The prices seem pretty good, so it may be worth your time to make a few inquiries.

If this event is on your list of mini-vacations this summer, now is the time to ensure that you have somewhere to sleep when you get there. I understand that the “only” way to go is by RV!
