Sunday Review: Road Snacks!

A road trip just isn’t a road trip without road snacks.

Or maybe we’re just fat.

Bits & Bites are by far my favourite. I don’t know why, but I must have them on the road and I just about only eat them when on the road. And then I eat a lot. The perfect mix of different levels of crunchy and salty and that barbeque flavour mixed into the cheese flavour- dangit, I just drooled on my computer.

This is what happens when a 4-year-old has control of her own snacks.

Drumheller and the Dinosaurs

On the road again! Can’t wait to get on the road again! Is that the full time RVer theme song?

After Manitou it was on to Drumheller and the Royal Tyrell Museum to see the dinosaurs!

First, here’s a pro-tip for parents taking their kid(s) to a museum. FACE PAINT! Lyndsay painted Aurora’s face and got her to pose at the exhibits. Aurora–normally very attention hungry and energetic–thought she was tricking people into thinking she was a part of the exhibit. She had fun, stayed still for lengthy periods of time, and everyone got to actually read the information without child interruptions.

Aaagh! Dinosaur! Oh, it’s just a kid.

On Vehicle Maintenance

Today’s post comes late in the day and a bit different from previous posts. We were busy all today and yesterday. Even the Sunday Review barely made it in!

My best friend was over so that I could help her change her spark plugs. Easy enough, right? Well, a quick bit of maintenance turned into an entire day ordeal. Because some idjit engineer decided to put an intake manifold over top of the rear spark splugs.

And covered it with wires and tubes.

Garden on the Road

A major misconception about life on the road is that you lose out on all of the comforts of a sticks and bricks, like a yard or a garden. Well, we’ve already proven that you get a yard; now we’re going to prove that you can have a garden.

I can hear your thoughts now. “What!? No drama today!?” Quit you’re whining and enjoy the good things instead of our suffering!

Our first year’s container garden.

Sunday Review: Harvest Hosts

The world is opening up again, and many of us full timers are going to be looking for places to go and things to see. Plus, we all struggle to find places to stay when on the road.

Single nights in a campground are costlier than they should be and finding a good place to boondock can be difficult if you don’t know what you’re looking for.

My family has tried several free or near to free camping options while traveling longer distances. Our favourite by far is Harvest Hosts. It is inexpensive to sign up for; the classic membership is only $79USD/year and the plus membership is only $119USD/year and both provide unlimited free 1 to 2 day overnight stays.

Happy Anniversary!

Today is the one year anniversary of picking up our RV. There was some time spent doing renovations before moving in, but it was ours. We’d bought a home.

Most people would never consider our RV a house; not even a tiny house. But for us, that’s absolutely what it is. We’ve modified it and maintained it, and it is ours.
