A Very Trying Day. Where Are We Going to Sleep Tonight?

In today’s video, we leave California and head into Oregon!! We are looking to boondock near-ish Crater Lake. We strike out on our first spot…too sketchy to try the fit the Airstream. So we decide to head North of Crater Lake (another 80 miles) to try a second spot. Little did we know that there was still SNOW there…in June! Our Arizona minds were blown. We eventually decide to head to a National Forest Campground but even that turns out to be more interesting than we expected. In the end, we are safe and sound with a place to lay our heads for a couple of days while we explore Crater Lake but wow….what a day!

Have you had travel days like this? Any advice to us or others out there on travel days? We’d love to hear it!

Moving to Antelope Island State Park & BUGS

In today’s video, it’s moving day. We are leaving our amazing spot on Utah Lake and heading for 1 night on Antelope Island. Antelope Island is on the Great Salt Lake north of Salt Lake City. We knew we wanted to go check it out and since it was $10 to get in we decided to dry camp for one night instead for $20 total. The views from our campsite were beautiful but the no-see-ums were ridiculous. Poor Penny was eaten alive on day one and Steve has over 100 bites after day 2. We will come back to the island…just not in the spring during no-see-um hatching time.

Experiencing Utah Lake & the Provo Area + An Evening Out

In today’s video, we are doing some exploring of the area around Utah Lake including hiking a waterfall (our third choice for a waterfall but it was still beautiful!). We also get a birds-eye view of our campsite at Miners Canyon from our hike up the hill. Lastly, we enjoy a night out for some Thai food which was special and delicious.

Boondocking on Utah Lake

In today’s video, we show you around our new boondocking spot on Utah Lake south of Saratoga Springs. We also go explore another boondocking location on Stansbury Island and get through a long not so fun day of important errands. We decided we liked this spot so much we’d stay a whole week here but wait until you see the bugs. Luckily they don’t bite 🙂

Friday Favorite – Our Water Siphon for Topping off our Tanks while Boondocking

This week’s Friday Favorite is our water auto siphon we use to top off our fresh water tank while boondocking in the Airstream. We tend to boondock in a spot for a week or maybe more and we don’t want to have to move the Airstream to go get water. We bought 2 big 7 gallon blue jugs for fresh water but they were a pain to pour into the fresh water tank (literally). So a friend who brews beer recommended this auto-siphon and we LOVE it!

Exploring Kodachrome Basin State Park in Utah

In today’s video, we decided to take a day trip to Kodachrome Basin State Park which was about 40 minutes from where we were boondocking outside of Bryce. Kodachrome was $8 for the day but we think it was worth it. We hiked a couple very pretty hikes including one with a large arch. Since we haven’t been to Arches yet this was a big deal to us! Our one thought on the park was we’d recommend seeing it before Bryce if possible. Bryce is so spectacular that comparisons are unfair and since we had hiked Bryce the day before it was fresh in our minds. Kodachrome is also beautiful just in a different way.

Also, there is absolutely 0 cell signal in the park or anywhere near it. So keep that in mind if you are planning to camp there.
