Camping Gear - Summer Gear Guide 2020

Sunday, May 24, 2020

No matter how you plan to spend your summer, there are good times to be had!

Summer 2020 has become unrecognizable and far more confining than I would like.  Ours has completely shifted and changed, and I'm learning into it.  We don't really have a choice, and I'd rather not fight it mentally.  We are still going to enjoy our summer if that does mean putting a blow-up pool in our backyard and living our best life at home.  We will make a few short trips close to home, but we won't be venturing quite as far this year.  Even with a more local summer plan, we will celebrate the season somehow.  My summer gear guide for this year includes items that you can enjoy either at home or on the road.

RV Updates - 3 Projects You Should Do Now

Saturday, May 16, 2020

RV updates and projects don't have to be scary.  They can be easier than you think to do and will you money!

If you have a little time on your hands, now is the time to tackle a project or two that you might have been putting off.  Use that time to save some money and pull out a few tools for those upgrades that can make a big difference in your RV.  Over time, we have gotten pretty brave and are willing to do both big and small projects.  Today I'm sharing three that can easily be completed at home!

RV Remodel - Peel and Stick Tile Backsplash

Monday, May 11, 2020

White subway vinyl tiles make a big impact in this small RV.

If all of the brown in your RV is giving you a case of the blues, give your interior a lift with peel and stick tile.  This is an easy way to brighten and customize your RV to make your home on wheels reflect your personal style. For less than $50 and under 2 hours, you can have an appealing backsplash (pun intended) in your kitchen or bathroom.  

RV Repair - Calling a Mobile RV Technician

Friday, May 8, 2020

The leak in our sink was a minor one, but it still needed to be repaired.

Owning a used pop up has prepared me for making lots of repairs.  On Peggy Sue, we repaired everything from the city water inlet to the roof.  By the time we sold her, I felt like I had earned a degree in RV repair.  Now, that we own a travel trailer, I feel confident in making decisions about repairs and basic upkeep.  Recently, I repaired a leaking hose under our sink.  Or so I thought, and what I thought was one thing turned out to be something else.  I finally called a mobile RV Technician.

Campgrounds Closed? Driveway Camping 101

Monday, May 4, 2020

I'm hoping this is not what my little dude thinks is what a camper should look like!  These Calico Critters are a little too close for me!

You don't have to go far to enjoy your RV.  Depending on your set up at home or your Home Owners Association rules, you could "camp" right at home.  Why not?  Its a break from the day to day routine in your sticks and bricks home.  We have been doing this some this spring, and it has been a great weekend break for us!  Today I'm sharing some easy tips to enjoy camping in your own back yard.

S'more Glamping Gear - Unpaper Towels

Friday, May 1, 2020

These double-sided towels will replace the need for paper towels and are super easy to make!

I have slowly reduced the number of disposable paper products that we use both at home and on the road.  In our RV, we use real plates, flatware, and cloth napkins.  Yes, you may be rolling your eyes, but washing dishes or clothes does not bother me.  And these items don't really add to my workload overall.    I finally decided to make a set of towels to replace my paper towels.  I love this set so much that I am going to make a set for home next.  This is a beginner level project that anyone can do, and I'm going to show you how.
