Driving around your second home on wheels means you always have a bathroom nearby. Sooner or later, everyone wants to know: how do you deal with the poop? Today, I’ll explain.
This weekend was a summer sendoff. Second grade starts tomorrow, in fact. It was time for one last Roxanne trip, just the kid and me this time, and right around the corner at Lake Fairfax.
A trip to Dutch Wonderland with friends is as much a summer tradition as we’ve got. Third year in a row, of the five summers we’ve spent together as a family. This year was the first time we went camping there too. So of course, Roxanne was the star of that show.
It was a weekend of firsts for our family and Roxanne: first visit to Jellystone. First weekend camping trip close to home. And first excursion where someone else in the group had an RV.
After a week on the road in the Midwest, we’ve got some amazing stories to tell. We’ve learned a lot about RVing and more than a little about each other. And yes, we saved some money.
Last time, I covered where we stayed and why. Now then, what do three vegans eat and do during a week-long camping road trip across the Midwest?
We’re home! Our epic 7-day road trip across the Midwest spanned some 1,700 miles and nearly 36 hours of driving. Add in sleeping, using the bathroom, cooking and eating, and we probably spent two thirds of the week in a space smaller than our living room at home.
Last week, I spent a few days on the road alone with my daughter, XY and my RV, Roxanne. Alan asked me to collect a few impressions of the trip. Here goes!
Greetings from Lindy’s ancestral homeland of Grand Rapids, Mich., where we’ve returned after a fun, successful long weekend at P.J. Hoffmaster State Park in Muskegon. We’re all still speaking to one another — in fact, we had a great time — and Roxanne was perfect company.
I’d like to introduce you to Roxanne. She’s our new second car, or our tiny house on wheels. She is a Flame Red 2015 Winnebago Travato 59G, built on the Ram ProMaster platform. We’ve just returned from a brief road trip to North Carolina, where we picked her up before stopping for the night at a campground outside Richmond, Virginia.
