Northgate RV Travel Park

Northgate RV Park, Athens AL

There aren’t many options for RV parking in (or near) Athens, Alabama. As such, if you come into town for the Bluegrass Festival or the Storytellers Festival, you’ll likely find yourself parking at Northgate RV Park. We call Athens, Alabama home, so after buying our RV in FL and returning, we needed a place to park while we got set up. Northgate RV Travel...

Emerald Beach RV Park

Emerald Beach RV Park in Navarre Florida

Emerald Beach RV Park in Navarre Florida was a place we didn’t want to leave, and not just because we had an amazing view of the water (even though our spot wasn’t waterfront). When we headed down to Ft. Myers to pick up Bessie, Julie wanted to try to work a little vacation into our return trip. Brandon wasn’t so sure he could make it work with work...

The Bighorn 3875FB front bath

Why We Chose the Heartland Bighorn 3875FB

In the last two years we’ve looked at hundreds of RVs, from travel trailers to 5th wheels to Class As. We considered them all. After all that looking, why did we settle on the Heartland Bighorn 3875FB? The idea of RV living is one that Julie has had on her mind for years. Before she met Brandon, she figured she’d set off in something small but reasonably...

Lake City Campground

Lake City Campground in Lake City FL

Our second stop with our new (to us) Bighorn 3875FB was a night at Lake City Campground in Lake City Florida. Here we were just looking for an easily accessible place to spend a single night. We tried to break our return trip (from Florida to Alabama) down into reasonable chunks of about 250 miles, and that put our first stop around Lake City Florida. Using the Good...

What to be wary of when buying a used RV

Buying a used RV is no easy task. There’s much to be wary of when buying a used RV. You’d think that you could just talk to the current owners, have them send you some pictures or even video and you’d have a good idea of what you are looking at. You’d still want to view it in person before buying, or have someone else do so, but you should be...

Heartland Bighorn 3875FB

Why We Drove 800 Miles to Buy Our RV

A few people have thought we were crazy to drive 800 miles to buy our first RV. Why not buy something closer? Something you could easily walk through before having it inspected. Why would you want to make an 800 mile trek home as your first RV trip? We feel we had two really good reasons. Availability and Price! After a couple of months of looking at Class A’s , we...

Workamper Rendezvous in Heber Springs Arkansas

5 Things We Learned at Workamper Rendezvous

We began looking at RVs online and joining Facebook groups during the summer of 2018. As a result, we began seeing ads for Workamper Rendezvous – a conference for RVers and those who want to be. Before these ads we’d never heard of workamping and had no idea what it is. Initial research seemed to indicate that it was the idea of living and working from...
