When my sister Kim asked me a few months ago if she could come out and join me for a couple of weeks on the road I was super excited. I think it’s fun to share this lifestyle with other people and this is the first time for a family member! I did things a little differently than usual, I decided to actually make…dare I say it…
plans. Wondering around with no real plan is not a good way to use up someones vacation, at least that’s what I was thinking. So, back when we decided on some dates, I set out to figure out just what we would do. We only had ten days, so I tried to pack in all different types of experiences. She would be flying into Denver, so that would be the starting point.
Denver…I wonder how we should start? I had just the thing, I setup a tour at Earthroamer! I mean, how can a person come to Denver and not go there….or is that just me? We meet up with my friend Allison who lives in Denver to visit the factory with us. Great tour (as usual, Annie the sales manager may have recognized me from prior visits), but I still am having a hard time convincing my sister that the Earthroamer is the best future living accommodations for me. The three of us talked about it over some beers at Industrial Revolution Brewery. Oh, did I forgot to mention my sister also is a craft beer fan? Terrible, I guess we will have to add in some beer exploring as well. In Denver we also hit up Great Divide Brewing, had to have me a fresh Yeti! (more…)by Kurt Kuhl
My time at the cabin in Forest Lakes was very relaxing. I had a good solid two weeks and it went by quickly. I handled some RV projects, including the installation of my hot water recirculation system. I made a video on that install that I embedded below. I also build a storage box system in the Rubicon, completed a video
on that project as well. I managed to get the cabin all cleaned up and organized my little storage room and garage. Beyond that, it was really a lot of just working and relaxing. I did have my friend Joe come up with his son and a friend for a weekend. Been more than a year since we had a chance to catch up. We our course played a ton of darts, enjoyed some beer, went hiking at the lake and just generally enjoyed the cool mountain air. It was great to get caught up. I closed up the cabin for the extended period I will be gone and pointed the RV back towards Flagstaff.
I scheduled to arrive a couple of days before the Made in the Shade Beer Festival. As I believed I mentioned previously, it has been four years since I have attended this event. While we lived in Arizona it was an annual trip for many many years. My cousin and other friends would be making there way up to Flagstaff on Friday in their fifth wheel for the weekend. My great friend Allen also decided to make his way up from Prescott to join in the fun and hang with me in the Seneca. As an added surprise for everyone, my oldest son Matthew was given a weekend off from the Army in Georgia and he also came up and joined us! It was almost like old (more…)by Kurt Kuhl
After the Xscapers convergence wrapped in Joshua Tree, it was on to Borrego Springs. I’ve been in the area before and really enjoy all the things to do and see there. John and Becky of AdventureNext continued to
travel along with me and have never been to the area. Our boondocking spot on Rockhouse Rd was WAY different than the last time I was here, maybe five total other rigs. But, this is due to the fact we are right at the end, if not past the season for this area. Temps were predicted to climb into the 90’s possibly during the stay. We took advantage of the cool mornings and got in some hiking, checking out both “the slot” and the (more…)by Kurt Kuhl
So ever since we started our travels Eastward this year I have been looking forward to getting to Delaware. Milton Delaware, the home of my favorite craft brewery for
unique and “off centered ales” as they call them. I of course am speaking of Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales. While they are not the oldest craft brewer, it was established by Sam Calagione back in 1995 making this their 20 year brewing. What I really enjoy about Dogfish is that they constantly try new things outside the “norm”.by Kurt Kuhl
