Thor Delano FB RV – 2020. Diesel/DEF/LP Class C Trip Costs

We purchased our RV new from a Camping World – and they didn’t give us a full tank of diesel or DEF. I’m still sore about this. When we purchased it there were 2,395 miles on it. We ended our trip with 7,939 miles or 5,544 miles traveled. We put 28 hours on the generator.Continue reading “Thor Delano FB RV – 2020. Diesel/DEF/LP Class C Trip Costs”

West Gate KOA, Broken Laptop, Driving Home…the end of our first RV Adventure.

First, the West Gate KOA in Yellowstone, MT has a nice store and playground area. The fudge was decent and the people helpful. Unfortunately, I broke my laptop screen at night. Entirely my fault. I didn’t bring a spare laptop or monitor. Lesson learned. So we are driving home quick like. This is the endContinue reading “West Gate KOA, Broken Laptop, Driving Home…the end of our first RV Adventure.”

Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center, MT

What an awesome rescue center. So the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center is more of a rescue center for animals who can’t live in the wild than like a zoo. They take raptors that have been hit by cars and can’t fly. They had an otter exhibit. The Grizzly Bear and Wolf exhibits were marvelous.Continue reading “Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center, MT”

Yellowstone’s Grand Canyon – Amazing.

Yellowstone’s Grand Canyon was (so far) my favorite part of the Park. We stayed in Grant Village. I wish we had stayed in the Canyon area. The small spawn followed up his 11 mile geyser hike with a 6 mile Saturday hike in Canyon section of Yellowstone. Saw one of the Falls on hike, butContinue reading “Yellowstone’s Grand Canyon – Amazing.”

Dubois/Wind River, WY KOA is OK, but the nearest steakhouse…divine.

The Dubois KOA had a playground for the kid and laundry. It was fine. I wonder if I’m getting jaded? I will say that we bought our 3rd Sewer hose there. Strangely 3 seems to be the perfect amount. However, can I just tell you about the The Long Buffalo Steakhouse. Holy $&@) is thatContinue reading “Dubois/Wind River, WY KOA is OK, but the nearest steakhouse…divine.”

Old Faithful, Geysers, Bison, and NO WiFi.

Let me say I was not expecting anything that happened at Yellowstone National Park. I loved things I didn’t expect and felt somewhat meh about some of the things I actually went there to see. Let’s start with BAD. We had no WiFi on a workday for me. This was not good. I had toContinue reading “Old Faithful, Geysers, Bison, and NO WiFi.”

Wyoming Dinosaur Center – Thermopolis, Wy

This was worth the money and the time if you love fossils and dinosaurs. It’s small, but really neat. Short. Good for kids. I’ve been to many, many, many world class museums. Not kidding. They have a ton of marble and are fancy. London’s Natural History Museum. Been there. Paris’ Jardin des Plantes & Pantheon?Continue reading “Wyoming Dinosaur Center – Thermopolis, Wy”

RV Stop – Elderly Dog with Ear Infection needed Vet

Callie the Elderly Retriever developed yet another (continuing) ear infection. She was treated for this ear thing in Wis when we had her stitches taken out. But Tuesday morning she was shaking her head, scratching her ear, and her ear was Bright, BRIGHT, red. So we needed a Veterinarian. In the middle of what wasContinue reading “RV Stop – Elderly Dog with Ear Infection needed Vet”

Eagle RV Park in Thermopolis, WY – Lovely.

So traveled from Devil’s Tower across the Bighorn Mountains to Thermopolis, WY. We had an idiot light (check engine) en route. ‘Cause Nothing Ever Goes as Planned. We are on a Mercedes Sprinter chassis. It runs on diesel. We had just taken on diesel at a Cenex in Gillette,WY. We suspected bad gas, but pulledContinue reading “Eagle RV Park in Thermopolis, WY – Lovely.”

Adjustable Sewer Hose Carrier – This could be a disaster in the making….

So we currently have two sewer hoses for the RV. The small hose fits perfectly in storage area for it in RV. We bought a second more sturdy hose on the road while heading south from Sheboygan, Wi to Milwaukee, Wi after we dumped for the first time in northern Wi and decided we neededContinue reading “Adjustable Sewer Hose Carrier – This could be a disaster in the making….”
