Hammocks bring about a vision of lazy days on the beach. Or maybe a day spent hanging out on your porch sipping on your favorite beverage. But what does one do when they have a hammock and there’s no place to set it up? Having a hammock stand is a much better solution than hanging one end to your rearview mirror and the other to a Saguaro cactus. This could very well result in breaking something…quite possibly, you. Check out these recommended hammock stands… from best to worst! For […]

Who says you have to put the RV way for the winter? As avid campers, we say keep up the camping all year round! There’s beauty to be found in all seasons, and there are benefits to camping in the winter months. These include nearly empty RV parks, winter sports, and a serenity that otherwise tends to disappear whenever camping season picks back up. Of course, there are some challenges that come along with winter camping. Staying warm in an RV can be difficult, and ensuring your water systems […]

Here’s how you can make the most out of spring break this year

Vacation pods. Travel bubbles. COVID clusters. However you call it, this new approach to group travel in pandemic times involves carefully selecting a small group of family and/or friends—siblings, neighbors, college besties—then ensuring everyone sticks to agreed-upon rules of pre-trip quarantining and testing, masking, and social distancing. In recent weeks, the news of vaccination rollouts and virus mutations have added to considerations of whether or not to travel. But after nearly a year of virtual schooling and working in often close quarters, it’s no wonder many families are banding […]

Camping in a School Bus, This RV Renovation Pushes the Limits

drivinvibin.com

If you didn’t already know, camping in a school bus is a real thing. In fact, the community refers to this unique type of RV as a skoolie. Since no RV manufacturers build school bus RVs, every skoolie you see on the road is a one-of-a-kind build. They have some obvious benefits. School buses are made to carry a lot of weight. It would be hard to reach its weight limitations. Also, you can find used school buses for super cheap. Many schools auction them off for pennies on […]

Dump your holding tanks from inside your RV

EDITOR What modification have you made to your RV that has had the most positive impact on your RV lifestyle? That thought came to me in the shower this morning. Here’s why. As I enjoyed the initial pleasure of the warm water, I noticed the drain was backing up — a full gray water tank! I routinely keep the gray water tank closed until it’s full or almost full, as we all should do. For most RVers in my situation, dumping the tank would mean drying off, dressing and […]

Popular Boondocking Site Closed, Citing “Gov’t Has Their Own Rules”

And so it begins. Less than one month into 2021, another boondocking (free camping) site has reported that it is closed. This time it’s a popular spot east of the Mississippi. Closing these locations has been a common theme since more RVers have hit the road over the last 12 months. In response to less air travel and hotel stays, camping is growing in popularity. But, boondocking is suffering the consequences. We’ll share the exact spot and what the government officials say it the reasoning. Let’s dive in. What […]

mapodile / Getty Images There’s no doubt that the pandemic has changed the way we work and live — families that used to spend the day apart with parents at work, children at school — are often crushed together in the same space trying to manage all their same responsibilities. And outlets that many people had to available to work off stress, from gyms to nightclubs to museums, are often closed or limiting the number of customers. With so many working from home, the boundaries between work and life […]

The Don’ts of Free Camping They say the best things in life are free, and that sometimes includes camping. It’s a privilege, not a right, however, and it’s one we shouldn’t abuse. It makes good sense to follow some fairly simple guidelines so we don’t spoil what’s such a great thing. Let’s dive in! What is Free Camping? Many RVers love staying at campgrounds or resorts with electricity, hot showers and other comforts. Others prefer a more primitive style of camping. Free camping is setting up an RV or […]
