I smell smoke…

It was about midnight and we were sleeping soundly in our RV, when we heard a loud pop that startled us all! I am so thankful that it happened this week as the hubby just returned from a week long business trip. Had it happened when he was gone, I probably would’ve ignored the sound and gone back to bed. We got up out of bed to explore the sound and walked into a room full of electrical smoke. After an hour or more of troubleshooting, we determined it was safest to unplug at the power supply to ensure there was no electricity going to the RV. Needless to say, it was a a long, quiet, hot night for us all as it’s summer still in Florida! Check out our video below, like, subscribe if you haven’t already, and share your comments!

A Day in the ATL

I’m not sure if people still call it “the ATL” anymore or if that’s a thing of the past. Growing up there, we always giggled at that reference as we just called it “Atlanta”…easy enough right? We were going to be in Georgia on a trip and decided to head into Atlanta for a quick day trip. We had only been to Fernbank once for a school dance, and knowing we have a dinosaur-loving little boy, we figured no trip was complete without a visit to Fernbank Museum of Natural History! So we hit the road and headed over! If you’ve never been to Fernbank or are just traveling through with some time to kill, I HIGHLY recommend this Museum for young and old alike!

When Norwex Won’t Fit the Bill

Prior to fulltiming, I spent some money on a few Norwex cloths because they were highly recommended for cleaning stainless, among other things. One of the reasons everybody loves Norwex is because they can be used for so many things!  For whatever reason, when I went to clean the fridge, freezer, microwave, and stove for the first time…NOTHING HAPPENED!! It didn’t do anything! I was sooooo frustrated I had bought these cloths JUST for this reason. Yes, I use them for other things, but this was why I bought them. Discouraged, I turned to my group of mom friends for help. It turned out a few other moms had the same issue and were seeking advice as well. One mom friend had the most unusual idea and I decided to give it a try and it totally worked! Watch this video and let me know what you think!

Have you ever heard of this?? Have you tried it? What did you think?

Smooth Moving

People have asked us how difficult it is to pick up and go while fulltiming. “Fulltimers tend to have so much stuff setup outside” is a comment we frequently hear. A few days ago, we completed our first “move” while fulltiming. We figured we’d videotape the outside tear down to give you an idea of just what is involved in “moving” our RV. We didn’t have time to get an inside video, so we’ll make sure to tape that in a few weeks when it’s time to pack up again, but I’m happy (and shocked) to say that we didn’t have any mishaps inside during the move. Enjoy and let us know if you have any questions or comments! Don’t forget to give us a “thumbs up” if you liked our video, and as always, SUBSCRIBE! 🙂

Touch-A-Truck/Kite Festival

I love these little weekend exhibits! We hit up Touch-A-Truck and the Kite Festival back to back, all while having a blast with some friends! The kiddos always LOVE looking at and climbing in all the big trucks. If your area has some of these events planned, I highly recommend them! They’re free, you walk around and get some exercise, make crafts from Home Depot, there are freebies to take home with you (which most people love, minus those fellow RVers!), and you get to learn all about these awesome trucks! They had dump trucks, police cars, helicopters, and much more!

Have you ever been to a Touch-A-Truck? If so, where was yours and do you recommend it?

Boys Day!

The boys headed off to Ponce de Leon Springs State Park for a little boys-only fun for the day! It was a bit crowded, but it was a neat location with plenty to do! The water remains a constant 68 degrees, which sounded amazing during our hot Florida days! Little did the boys know, it would be a fairly chilly cloudy day, so the water wasn’t as refreshing as they anticipated! After all that cold springs water swimming, they had to head to the gulf to warm up a bit! Don’t forget to like our videos, comment, and subscribe!

 

Keystone Outback Exterior Review

Here’s our Exterior RV video! We will discuss the pros and cons of our 2015 Keystone Outback 324CG from an owner’s perspective! When we were RV shopping, all we wanted was a video by people who camped and/or lived in their RV, and could never find many. So we’ve provided you with ours! We hope this helps others to find their perfect RV for their family during their RV hunt, or just learn more about what to look for during the research and shopping phase!

Let us know if you have any additional comments or questions! We’d love to hear from you!

Happy 4th!

Happy July 4th everybody! We hope you had a wonderful vacation weekend! What did you end up doing?

Join us as we drive over the crazy that is Crab Island, head over the Navarre Beach bridge, and over to our favorite (almost hidden) beach, Opal Beach! How much stuff can one family carry to the beach? Find out in our video! You’l quickly see why we LOVE this beach, even on a holiday weekend! We’ll take you around Harbor Walk for date night, where we heard a great band, ate some grub, and acted like tourists. We unfortunately added Jackacuda’s to our list of places we don’t have to revisit. The food was sub-par, the drinks were good, but the price tag was high given the quality of the food.
