Vinnie’s For New Wheels & Heading North

In today’s video, we enjoy the quiet of Memorial Day after all the other campers head home. We leave the next day and head to Vinnie’s Northbay Airstream Repair to get new 16″ wheels and tires for Charlie along with a few other upgrades. Vinnie is awesome and not only did the work we requested but gave us all sorts of advice on future upgrades we could do ourselves. He also walked us around the Airstream and showed us details we never knew! We highly recommend him. After a night spent at Vinnie’s, we head north to the Redding CA area to get a few Passport America full hookup nights before trying to find some free camping in the mountains in northern CA.

Off To Tuttletown for the Long Weekend

In today’s video, we’re heading out of the Truckee area and into California Gold Mine Country. We wanted to be close to Sacremento over Memorial Day in order to have any easy drive to get work done on the trailer. Plus we knew we should have reservations for the holiday weekend. We found Tuttletown online and decided to try it. Check it out with us!

Friday Favorite – Hammock Time

This week’s Friday Favorite is Courtney’s, Eno Hammock. Hammocks have always been one of Courtney’s favorite things so it makes sense for us to have a camping hammock. We have the Eno Double Hammock, along with the Eno Atlas suspension straps which allow us to string up the hammock wherever there are trees. This hammock packs up super small and compact but can be setup in minutes for maximum relaxation. The parachute material breathes well and makes for a support swing. Love it!

Do you have a hammock you love? Let us know!

Tuesday Talks – How we Enjoy Small Towns

This week we’re discussing how we experience and enjoy small towns. We try to get to fun cities and small towns along our travels. We like to walk the streets and take in the unique shops. However, we live in our Airstream full-time and don’t have much room or need for souvenirs. So this is how we enjoy small towns.

Do you have any advice for enjoying the places you RV to?

On Tuesday’s we’d like to answer questions sent to us from viewer’s like you and share some of the details of our Airstream life. If you have a question for us please let us know in the comments below!

 

Exploring Around Lake Tahoe

In today’s video, we drive around Lake Tahoe and take in the gorgeous lake from all sides including a fire lookout. We stop to pick up some craft beer, climb around a waterfall and check out Squaw Valley. Lastly, we head to Donner Lake and the Rainbow Bridge on Donner Summit and eat some delicious tacos. We’re loving out time in Truckee/Tahoe!

Friday Favorite – Hiking Sun Hat

This week’s Friday Favorite is Courtney’s Hiking Sun Hat. We’ve gotten a number of questions about it and it is the hat Courtney ALWAYS wears while hiking to protect her from the sun. It provides great sun protection and stays on even in high winds. The only downside is you lose some peripheral vision. You can get it at Costco or on Amazon below.

Do you have a favorite sun/hiking hat that you would recommend?

Leaving Wendover & Checking Out the Bonneville Salt Flats

In today’s video, we finally get everything sorted out with Clifford’s repairs and we get to leave Wendover Nevada but first, we check out the Bonneville Salt Flats. The Salt Flats were amazing beautiful…more so than we expected. If you are driving past we highly recommend you stop for a quick visit. Stay tuned as we get back to adventuring after this brief delay.

Tuesday Talk – Flexibility

This week we’re discussing are mishaps that you may have seen in the previous video. We discuss the importance of staying flexible while traveling full time. You can plan all you want but things will go wrong and it’s important to not let that throw you and have as much in place to help as possible. We also briefly discuss the need for an emergency fund.
