If there is anything that Colorado has a lot of, it’s hiking trails and paths. Because of the terrain and elevation, not all of them are family-friendly. Our kids are growing up, but they are still not capable of hiking more than 3 or 4 miles at a time. After 6 months of RVing in Colorado, we found 5 family-friendly hikes that we would like to recommend to you![Read more…] about 5 Family-Friendly Colorado Hikes
If you are or will be buying (or have already bought) a RV, you will run into the great dilemma – Do I buy a new or used RV?
I’ve seen this question come up on YouTube, in Facebook groups, and in general discussions with others. As with every other thing in this world, there are pros and cons to buying a new or used RV. Here we will go over some of those and invite you to join the debate along with our friend The Wandering Gants, 1st Class RV Adventures, and Wandering Porcupine!
RVing with kids is amazing. It is natural way for families to bond, explore, learn, and grow. The transition however isn’t always so amazing. The emotional adjustment of leaving old friends behind can be quite difficult, especially for children. Let’s talk about what you can expect as your family transitions from home life and RV life and how to help your children during this time.
It’s a lovely morning.
You wake up to the soothing sounds of raindrops falling on the roof of your RV.
Everyone is stirring.
You look out the window, not remembering if you are in Colorado or Arkansas.

The kids are stirring and together you look out the windows.
Identifying the mountains you are looking at, what ridge is that again?
You start talking about the environment around the RV – is it a grassland? desert?
Someone grabs a tablet and the researching begins.
The conversation continues through breakfast.
Books get pulled out, YouTube videos play, and you discuss where you’ll be hiking and what kind of scavenger hunt you’ll have.
