5 Holiday Travel Tips!

  • 1. Research the area you are wanting to spend time for the holidays. Check local weather, find out about any celebrations, safety in the area and if it is an adult park or does it have lots of children running around.
  • 2. Gas up your rig at least two days before the holiday. Prices always get higher on holidays.
  • 3. Make reservations well before especially in popular tourist destinations.
  • 4. Travel to your destination two days before the holiday and wait until at least two days after to leave. You can avoid most traffic jams that way.
  • 5. Stock up on whatever shopping items you need well beforehand. Nothing like spending hours in long lines at the shops!
  • Lastly, have a wonderful safe holiday!

  • PA Campground Review

    Wow what a gem we found on our travels through Pennsylvania! Not far off of the main freeway, quiet, very friendly and they give a military discount!

    Camp Wilhelm has nice pull through spaces, a pool, a store with just about everything you’d need, propane, wood for your fire rings, very dog friendly and all reasonably priced.

    If you are traveling through this way you can check it out here!

    4 Reasons to Visit San Antonio Texas

    The Alamo of course is probably the number one reason to go to the city. It is an amazing place with so much history. We really enjoyed our walk through time there. The oak trees are massive and as you walk by them, you can see in your minds eye the soldiers hiding under their branches for safety.

    The Riverwalk is a close second. Right across the street from the Alamo there is a staircase leading down to the water through a beautiful hotel. When you arrive outside you are immediately immersed in the beauty of the trees, unique shops and restaurants. We walked along the river for as far as Bruce could. So much to see.

    As we headed back we found an English eatery called Mad Dogs to have lunch at and weren’t disappointed. Bruce chose the Cottage Pie that was filled with hamburger and vegetables cooked in an amazing sauce then topped with cheesy mashed potatoes! Next time it’s fish and chips for sure.

    The architecture is another reason to visit. They have some beautiful old buildings. I personally love to photograph those types of things.

    The last reason is Lackland AFB. Well if you are retired military that is. It is a large base with many amenities. The BX is huge and carries everything you need. The employees are all very friendly and then there is the food court with Charley’s cheesesteaks! I would drive many miles out of the way for those. {ha-ha}
