Sleepy Cypress Trees and the Silvery Ocean: Myrtle Beach State Park

Sleepy Cypress Trees and the Silvery Ocean: Myrtle Beach State Park

When we pulled into Myrtle Beach State Park, Wesley was fast asleep.  His twin brothers, however, were not.  So we found a parking spot between the playground and the beach so Wes could rest and the boys could play.  Max informed me that I was going to be “the bad pirate” and that he and Theo were going to be “the good pirates.”  Then he informed me that I had to go over to the kiddy playset because that was my pirate ship and they were both about to raid it.  Things were not looking good for dad. Much to my relief, the boys soon become... Read More

How We Roll When a Campground Rocks! (Myrtle Beach KOA)

How We Roll When a Campground Rocks! (Myrtle Beach KOA)

When we pulled into the Myrtle Beach KOA and saw families lounging by the pool and kids romping through the spray ground my son Max asked, “can we always come back here?”  Both of the boys were still buckled up in their car seats but they knew that this campground was going to be special–and they were so right. We had just pulled in, but it was quickly becoming apparent that we had discovered one of our new favorite places on planet earth.  We had also finally put the long, cold New Jersey winter somewhere far, far behind...

Guest Blog: The Campgrounds of New Zealand

Here is the latest post from our guest bloggers John and Cathy, who recently returned from an epic RV adventure in New Zealand… * About a year ago we decided to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary with a trip to New Zealand.   Since we have lived an RV lifestyle, both here and in Europe, for the past 30 years, we made the decision to rent a small motorhome and travel in New Zealand using commercial campgrounds.  We wanted to stay in commercial campgrounds and compare them to campgrounds here in America.  We stay a lot at KOA campgrounds...

Campground Sticker Shock? Unpacking the Value of a Cabin

Campground Sticker Shock? Unpacking the Value of a Cabin

Jeremy and I realized recently that a certain scenario keeps repeating itself. Friends of ours will express interest in coming along with us on a trip. If they are not interested in tent camping, we enthusiastically recommend cabins as a great way to experience a campground without the gear and prep that goes hand in hand with roughing it. Our friends love the idea until we go to make reservations. Then BAM! Sticker shock and retreat. It turns out that most people assume cabins will be significantly cheaper than a hotel room. The truth is,... Read More

Wanna Camp with Kiddos and have a good time? Respect the Routine…

Wanna Camp with Kiddos and have a good time? Respect the Routine…

We went on our first long road trip with Max and Theo when they were not even three months old. We had no game plan; we did no research. Basically, we threw the boys in the car at 6:30 am and took off on a 13 hour drive. Learning to take care of twins is not an easy transition into parenthood, and the idea of staying home with them all summer seemed more painful than the idea of travel, so away we went. Ten months later, we bought our first camper and committed ourselves to learning how to explore the world with our children. Now Max and Theo... Read More
