Today is the 3rd annual BLOG YOUR HEART OUT DAY in awareness of Cardiovascular Disease in Women. Now I know most of us have thought I'm health conscious, I lead a very healthy lifestyle, my family has no history of heart disease, I'm a woman, I'm too young, etc. so we think that we may not need to get checked out. BUT, contrary to popular belief, cardiovascular disease is not just a man’s disease. In fact, cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of women 25 years of age and older in the United States. This disease knows no race…

Lava Hot Springs, Idaho

Lava Hot Springs, Idaho - Lava Hot Springs is a small town in Eastern Idaho with a big draw. Natural hot springs and wild tube rides down the Portneuf River is sooo much fun! It's a wonderful stop that's just a little ways of the main highway, but well worth it. It seems as though you can rent a tube about every 100 feet down Main Street, there's never a shortage. The hot springs grounds are well kept with all the modern facilities included. It's soothing and comforting at the same time. There are about 4-5 hot pools ranging in…

Universal Islands of Adventure in Orlando, Florida - Brett wanted to go to Disney World even though we had both been there, but not together. We compromised and went to Universal Islands of Adventure because of the new Harry Potter rides. Yes, I am a Harry Potter fan and had to see how Universals Wizarding World of Harry Potter turned out. They did an amazing job! It was truly unbelievable the detail in the shops, Hogwarts castle and they even had Butterbeer! Which was delicious. Brett had no idea about anything Harry Potter but he really enjoyed the Butterbeer and…

Greenbelt, Maryland - Located just 12 short miles from Washington, DC, Greenbelt Park is a secluded oasis conveniently located to all of it's surroundings. We settled deep in the woods amidst the beautiful fall colors of changing leaves. This particular state park has no hook-ups, but if your rig is self-contained you're good to go. In addition there are shower & restroom facilities conveniently located throughout the park. It also happened to be Brett's birthday. Happy Birthday Brett! I'm sure glad you were born. He's not big on over the top birthday celebrations so we did a low-key celebration with…

Punjabi Dhaba in Columbia, South Carolina - Punjabi Dhaba is a wonderful restaurant in a modest part of Columbia. If you ever need to make a quick pit stop while you are on the road and craving Indian food, this is the place to go. It is conveniently located right off I-20 for easy on & off access. This is our second year coming back to eat with our friends at Punjabi Dhaba. Singh and Gurdial are a delightful couple that are also very accommodating, for not only my super sensitivity to spicy foods but for accommodations of our motorhome…

Dallas, Texas - Another annual stop for us along our American journey. We make it a point to visit Brett's cousins and their husbands who all live here. Fortunately most of our friends and family have a knack for cooking. So it's always nice gathering around delicious meals reminiscing and catching up on all the happenings of each others lives. Our hosts, Lisa and Jason, started things off with a cheese fondue along with apples, pears and bread for dipping, yum! Brett's other cousin Kristin and her husband Jason brought some pink champagne, her favorite, to compliment the fondue.Lisa made…

Montezuma Castle National Monument/Willie Nelson Concert Campe Verde, Arizona-We made it to Distant Drums RV Resort in Campe Verde, AZ a day early so we took the time to explore.  Brett took me to go see the Montezuma Castle National Monument, which is really an old native American cliff dwelling. There was a small fee for entry. We spent some time in the visitors center reading a lot of the history on the dwellings and the area.The amazing part was to think how they built, maintained and survived in the side of a cliff back in the days there were no…

Red Canyon Dixie Forest, Utah - We love visiting this area of our beautiful country.  This time we stayed in Red Canyon Campground, which is located roughly 9 miles from main entrance to Bryce Canyon State Park. Bryce Canyon has some of the most amazing natural formations we have ever seen amongst our travels and made a stop as part of our honeymoon road trip. We enjoyed talking with the camp hosts who were extremely friendly and informative.There are approximately 2 million acres in what the locals lovingly refer to as "Dixie" (Dixie National Forest) so there is not a…

Park City, Utah - Park City is the home of the 2002 Winter Olympics and also the annual Sundance Film Festival. People from around the world come here durning the winter months to participate in winter activities, watch films and enjoy the mountain town ambiance. Park City is not just for the snow worshippers, for there are plenty of warm weather activities to partake in as well. The streets in downtown on Main Street are packed with restaurants and trendy boutiques.One restaurant we stumbled upon was Riverhorse On Main. Although located in a very historic part of town the inside…

Yellowstone Bear World, Rexburg, Idaho - On our way down from Montana we had to make a stop at Yellowstone Bear World, in Rexburg, Idaho since we didn't have any bear encounters in Wyoming or Montana. I wanted to see a bear so badly I decided it was perfectly okay to pay to see them. Yellowstone Bear World allows you to drive through the park from the comfort of your own vehicle including cars, RVs and even Semis, as many times as you want!  The best part is that we didn't have to unhook the Cook'n Cruiser from our motor…

Big Sky, Montana

Big Sky, Montana - Big Sky is a picturesque small mountain town about 45 minutes south of Bozeman and the closest airport. People are friendly and very outdoorsy. Although this town gets a lot of snow the locals make the most of any season - the cold doesn't faze them.  It seems as though fly fishing is the state sport, for at every turn in the road there are at least 3 people standing out in the stream fly fishing 'til their hearts content and that is any day of the week. We rolled in on the perfect weekend &…

Bozeman, Montana - It's a smaller city considering it is home to Montana State University but it boasts natural hot springs, some great restaurants and an awesome computer guru, named Gordon Stevens! Our sole purpose of redirecting our trip to Bozeman was to get our Mac fixed and thanks to Gordon we had our Mac up and running within 24 hours - something that none of the Apple stores we visited could accomplish so quickly.We spent the day at the Bozeman Hot Springs having a nice workout and afterwards enjoyed the natural hot pools. The gym looks brand new and the…

Yellowstone National Park, WY - Leaving Jackson Hole, we headed up through the Grand Teton Park directly into Yellowstone National Park. We've been through the Southern and Western portions of the park so we did minimal sight seeing on this trip. We definitely need to travel through the northern and western areas of Yellowstone - and if you have any suggestions as to what we need to see please post them. I did include some photos we took on our honeymoon from 2009 as well as some recent ones.There are many geysers in the park as well as brilliantly blue…

Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Grand Teton National Park, WY - Coming from Wilson you will enter the Teton National Park through a "back road" which is definitely NOT RV friendly and for everyone's safety, DRIVE SLOW! The road is very narrow and there is a lot to see, so there are many distracted drivers - be careful. Although there is a nominal fee to enter the park, it is well worth it. There is so much to see at any time of the year, snow capped mountains, lakes, wildflowers and many wild animals so keep your eyes peeled.We only encountered a small herd of…

Jackson Hole, Wyoming ' Lena's birthday (Ugh! Let's just say I'm 3?) We packed up and started at the Jackson Hole mountain resort taking the Aerial Tram, which delivers passengers to an elevation of 10,450 feet in fewer than 10 minutes. There are breathtaking views from the start and only get more amazing as you near the top. Definitely a place I'd like to visit in the winter for a little snowboarding and cozying up in front of a fire in one of the numerous cabins in the area.Even in early August there was still snow on top of the…

Twin Falls, Idaho - The Twin Falls visitor's center is where we started. Friendly people and lot of great information, not to mention the view! It overlooks the "Snake River Gorge" which is absolutely breathtaking. It's resembles a smaller version of the Grand Canyon and you can see for miles in either direction, including a beautiful golf course near the bottom of the canyon.It was a bit scary to actually walk across the bridge that connects both sides of the Gorge because as each car or truck passed you could literally feel the bridge moving or bouncing up and down.…

Lovelock, Nevada - Rye Patch State Park campground is off I-80 exit 129 and 20 miles NE of the town of Lovelock and a mere 10 minute ride from the highway. The Park is surrounded by mountains, water, large golden fields and more beautiful scenery. Rye Patch State Park is well worth the trip and at $14 per night the camping fee is a real bargain. There are two major areas for RV camping. The one by the dam accommodates larger RVs and by the lake is for smaller RVs. Keep in mind that this is a very remote part…

Wine Country ' Paso Robles, California. Our favorite place to stay during our visit is Wine Country RV Resort. Aside from the awesome staff, they offer many great amenities. Including 2 full size kitchens in their enormous clubhouse, a small gym that provides a great workout, and two pools (one that's adults only). In addition there's a hill on the property that is perfect for any level of endurance training. After your workout spend a day visiting any of the numerous wineries in the area sure to please the palate of even the most discriminative wine connoisseur. Shuttles run regularly…

Sedona, Arizona - We've had so much excitement and been doing so much that we have a lot to share. So keep checking back often as we are constantly posting. Sedona, AZ- Sedona on the 4th of July (or any time of year) is always a great spot to bring visitors of any age - even Brett's 90 year old Grandmother enjoyed it when we brought her out 2 years ago! The red soil and rocks alone are awe inspiring. It is always a few degrees cooler than Phoenix so come prepared with a light jacket or dress in layers.Our…
