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!
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! 🙂
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?
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!
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 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.
Writing the other post about our last day trip to Pensacola made me realize we were ready for another trip! We had family coming in town for July 4th weekend, so we figured we would bring them along with us! Join us in our vlog as we visit the Historic Downtown Village, the Children’s Museum, and another Jaco’s Meal!
Here’s another throwback blog post for you! Don’t worry, I’m almost caught up! We had a scheduled homeschool field trip to the Pensacola State College Planetarium, so we decided to make a day of it to explore. We’ve been planning on seeing a bunch of sights over there and still have more plans to see what we missed on this trip. A day just isn’t enough to take in all the sights Pensacola has to offer! The Planetarium was a neat experience, although possibly dated and not for those easily prone to motion sickness. We had a wonderful time learning about all the planets, gas giants, stars, and constellations! Daddy even got to join us for this field trip!
We had previously stayed at Live Oak Landing RV Resort and really enjoyed it! So when we won 2 free nights as part of a video contest, we broke our unspoken RV’ing campground rule of “1 stay and done”. We are all about seeing, visiting, and touring new places, after all, that is why we bought an RV in the first place. So we decided as weekenders, that we would probably stick to one visit per campground/RV resort/State Park, etc. However, a free trip is definitely grounds to break a rule, am I right?
This one is a throwback, because life just got too crazy preparing for fulltime RV life, that I just ran out of time to publish some blog posts that I wanted to share with you all. We joined some friends at the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park for a birthday celebration one Saturday. We were so excited to share this experience with some wonderful people!
