The Fiddler and his Airstream…Welcome to Asheville.

We pulled out of Cape Hatteras at around 8:30 AM.  Not exactly the crack of dawn–but a pretty good departure time for parents with twin four year-olds and a three month old baby boy.  We were making good time on our way to Asheville when Max put down his coloring book and started complaining that his stomach hurt.  We didn’t pay him much mind. Then he barfed all over the back seat.  This caught our attention.  Then he barfed again.  Now we were down-right focused.  Theo, being his twin brother and all, also barfed all over the... Read More

They Float Through the Air With the Greatest of Ease….

They Float Through the Air With the Greatest of Ease….

This afternoon, after a quality nap, and some quiet time in the camper, we headed back to the welcome center at the Cape Hatteras KOA for the “tie dye extravaganza.”  We did this last year as well and the shirts made for great souvenirs that the boys still wear–so call it a new summer tradition.  You could bring your own shirt or pay five bucks and buy one from the staff–they had a variety of sizes laid out on a table in the stage room next to the pool. After we bought our shirts the summershiners (younger summer... Read More

We’ve Got Our Mojo Workin’ (and our campers are chillin’)

We’ve Got Our Mojo Workin’ (and our campers are chillin’)

We have settled into a relaxing groove here at the Cape Hatteras KOA–and it’s official–we’ve got our MOJO working.  Stephanie and I were both a bit nervous (albeit in very different ways) about traveling with such a little camper–but Wes is a budding young star–and a potential KOA rookie of the year.  My big little man really seems to love the beach.  Here he is relaxing with mommy. And a bit later taking a refreshing nap and enjoying the ocean air… While I actually caught a few waves on my... Read More

Camper Wesley Makes Poolside Debut (plus pool slide acrobatics…)

Camper Wesley Makes Poolside Debut (plus pool slide acrobatics…)

After the heavy morning rain cleared up, Mommy brought Camper Wesley up to the pool for his big Cape Hatteras KOA debut.  Notice Maxwell behind him doing the “I-love-the-pool-happy-dance.” Meanwhile, Theo pondered the universe while keeping cool… And over at the pool slides the rest of the crew practiced their routines.  Joe did the “hang ten into torpedo slide”… * Morgan did the “old school chillaxed slide”… While Max did the “Cape Hatteras Casual”… * * * * But Izzy won...

During Nap Time (it’s the only time) Daddy Rows Alone…

During Nap Time (it’s the only time) Daddy Rows Alone…

We were all tuckered out after another great morning at Longwood Gardens.  Max and Theo had played for hours in their magical children’s garden and we had enjoyed a picnic lunch while watching a massive fountain show on their main lawn.  So when we pulled back into the Philadelphia/West Chester KOA it was definitely cozy RV nap time.  We got the twins settled in their rear bunks and then mommy and baby Wes started to doze off up front.  I was pretty tired myself and my eyelids were feeling very heavy… But then I suddenly realized...

Beach Camping with the Comeback KOA: Cape Hatteras, North Carolina

Beach Camping with the Comeback KOA: Cape Hatteras, North Carolina

We had one week of summer vacation left and our wanderlust was getting the best of us again.  I was watching the weather reports for three different regions.  Would we spend our last week of summer vacation hiking in New Hampshire? Or visiting family and listening to bluegrass in The Blue Ridge Mountains? Or being beach bums in the Outer Banks?     It was 72 hours before our planned departure date and we still hadn’t made up our minds.  All of the options seemed awesome and we really wanted to take all three trips.  Stephanie and I agreed...

Mad Squirrels and Free Coffee: Rip Van Winkle Campground

Mad Squirrels and Free Coffee: Rip Van Winkle Campground

Rip Van Winkle Campgrounds: Saugerties, NY   Before we officially move on to Season 4 we would like to recap a few of our adventures from last summer and fall that didn’t quite make it onto the blog. *** We wrapped up our three stop trip to New York State with a four day stay at Rip Van Winkles Campground in Saugerties.  Our last stop, at Branches of Niagara, was pretty awesome: zip lining, fishing, kayaking, and, well–Niagara Falls.  So the bar was set pretty high for the last stop of our grand tour. When I booked Rip Van Winkles... Read More
