We make it to Silt, Colorado

Our second stop on the way to Colorado Springs took us to the KOA Campground in Silt, Colorado. This is a decent KOA, and the ladies behind the counter that checked us in were very nice and happy to give us any information we needed. The spots were fine, they felt a little close together …

The Shakedown Trip Begins!

Having just picked up our trailer a couple of days beforehand, with just enough time to toss some essentials and some groceries inside, we hit the road on a trip that will take us to Colorado Springs and back. The first stop in our Itinerary takes us to the Painted Rocks Campground, in Yuba State …

Hello there.

We have our new home! I'm still reeling. The inspection for this trailer went far smoother than any other inspection I've done on one of these things. We only found one minor defect, and it really is minor. The front window shade on the left side in the front living area won't roll all the …

Farewell to You…

Well, today's the day. Today's the day we say goodbye to our 2 year old Wind River 280RLS travel trailer. It was a great trailer. All of our experiences with Outdoors RV in LaGrande, OR have been great so far. Prior to this trailer we had a 2010 Timber Ridge, made by the same company. …

Trailer Arrives at Dealer

Well, our new home made it into town! And it looks good! We haven't taken delivery yet, but it arrived from the shipper to the dealer today. We went in to talk about a washer and dryer set, and a couple of other things, and took a couple of pictures. We're hoping to sign, do …

One last trip in the Wind River, and a new toy.

This memorial weekend, we went out with Nate's folks to celebrate one last quiet weekend with the old trailer. We decided to head down to Duck Valley Indian Reservation, which is on the border of Idaho and Nevada. Its south of Bruneau, which in turn is south of Mountain Home. This is probably one of …

Our “Toad”.

This is what we'll be towing behind us, and in states that don't allow that type of thing, pulling the duty of driven caboose on our adventures. It'll be our town tourer, campsite scouter, and mountain lake fishing taxi. It's a 2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara. This Grand Vitara has been lifted with a Zuki Nation …

Travel Companions – Past & Present

An adventure couldn't start without the proper introductions.  So without further ado, I give you Mica and Quartz: These 2 little pups have become instant family members and you'll probably be seeing lots of them in the future.  They are 'Merle' Pomeranians (from 2 different litters) and are about a month apart in age.  Mica …

The waiting, is the hardest part…

Ahh, Tom Petty. Monday afternoon, we ordered our fifth wheel. It's a Grand Design Momentum 376TH. What makes this model special to us is the fact that it is a hybrid between a Toy Hauler and a regular Front Living style model. We will still have a full living area, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom, but …

Goodbye.

Well, we did it. We closed on the sale of our home on Monday morning, the 15th of May. Recently, we liquidated or donated everything in our home save for a few items and keepsakes, and went through the process of selling it. We had owned this home since new; we moved in December of …
