Our Little Teardrop Camper – T@B

Here it is the big reveal! We found this great 2014 T@B camper/travel trailer.  We totally fell in love with its cuteness and versatility.  It is lightweight (about 1600 lbs) to tow but still has all of the amenities of a full-size RV. We have a kitchen, hot water, propane stove, air conditioning, and even […]

Tracing History – Natchez Trace Pkwy

It was hot and humid late August in Tennessee.  We stopped in Nashville to stock up at Costco since we were going to be out in the country right off of the Natchez Trace Parkway.  I love pulling up the RV right into the large Costco lot shopping and putting the groceries right into the […]

Exploring Mammoth Cave National Park KY

After a failed attempt work camping at Amazon in Campbellsville, KY in August 2016. (I hurt my foot and decided to leave – longish story but not that interesting)  We moved to the closest Thousand Trails campground and that happened to be this one to regroup and decide where our RVing adventures would lead us […]

RV Living – How to make a heated Water Hose

The temperatures in Western Washington have been really cold.  We decided it was time to start thinking about making a heated hose to prevent frozen pipes in our RV.  We had problems last year in Albuquerque when the hose bib itself froze and we luckily had enough in our fresh water tank until that unfroze […]

  Well, it has been a long time coming, but here it is.  The very first in a series of Fireside Traveler YouTube videos.  This one was taken in June 2016 while we were camping in southern Massachusetts at the thousand trails campground called:  Gateway to Cape Cod.  What an obvious name 🙂  It really […]

CF Martin Guitars – Pennsylvania

            We are big fans of free factory tours…so when we had the opportunity to take a side trip to Pennsylvania to see how Martin Guitars were made,  we jumped at the idea. (Besides we got to stay in the beauty of the Poconos)  We decided to stay  at the […]

Jersey Shore

I must admit I did not know what to expect from New Jersey.  I had only been in the Newark airport a few times.  My perception of this area was very industrial almost rust belt.  I know it is named the garden state, but my preconceived ideas were totally off.  It is green with views […]
