We are staying at Rushmore View, which is an interesting/quirky tiny RV stop. We are here for four days. The RV office people were absolutely lovely. But it is a SMALL RV park – in fact they say right on their website – “Built in the days when RV’ing was car-camping and compact motorhomes, mostContinue reading “Rushmore View RV Park – Keystone, SD.

Boondocks we love! Coffee Cup Fuel Stop – Hartford, SD.
I need to get this Blog organized. Truly. But I’m going to start posting about boondock stops we love. We had pulled into Love’s Truck Stop…and pulled right the hell back out because it was FULL of the Sturgis/Covid Rat (aka Soon to be Donor Bikes) Crowd. Don’t post here re anti-motorcycle stuff. My husband,Continue reading “Boondocks we love! Coffee Cup Fuel Stop – Hartford, SD.”
Visiting Friends for a wild time. Best water balloons and disposable straws ever.
So we made a “friend stop” in Illinois. First, it pays to have awesome friends. Gratitude. Second, this post should be sub-titled “excellent product discoveries via other more experienced moms…”. So we were introduced to some truly awesome, easy to load, water balloons. They load about 40 – 60 or so at once off ofContinue reading “Visiting Friends for a wild time.

We Made it to Wisconsin! No Snark here.
Ah, the great northern land of Mosquitoes as big as a baby’s fist. Once the sun sets (and after s’mores by the fire) you better get inside quick like!

Buying an RV Snark: To Make Snide and Sharply Critical Comments.
Buying RV from Large Camping RV Company. First gratitude. The child safety seat and latch are working fabulously. They (dealer) switched the model they had in stock with a related dealer in one day for the one we needed. They double checked child safety part – and got part for us quick even though thisContinue reading “Buying an RV Snark: To Make Snide and Sharply Critical Comments.”

Test driving a Portable Washer for RVing.
I’d hate to jinx us…again. But we needed to test some stuff before we (hopefully) pick up the 2020 Thor Delano FB tomorrow. So we “plan” on getting on the road this Saturday.
