Purrfect Circle

So this isn't really an RV issue. It's a pet owner issue. Pet owners - no matter where you live - understand this. We had a lot of loss over the last six months. We lost Nala in December 2016 and six months later we lost Ally. Starting as far back as Bailey who passed away in 2009 (our first adoptee, our first loss), we always had the internal struggle of "Should we adopt another?" We always opted against it since there were so many pets already, so many personalities to meld and age. When you have a pet with…

Big Beers

The summer is festival time for the Breckenridge area. Who knew? We aren't ones to be "food" tourists. You know what we mean - you ask people to list places to see in the area and 99% of what they list are restaurants. We aren't those types, but you add the word "festival" to the end of that? We're game.

"Big…

Mess of Mama’s BBQ

The Breckenridge area isn't just about mountains! We were lucky to attend the Frisco BBQ Festival which is a haven if you like BBQ, beer, ice cream or all of the above. [caption id="attachment_1026" align="aligncenter" width="960"] Entrance to the festival[/caption] We saw a few vendors staying in our RV park, along with amazingly huge smokers and trailers. We didn't see the train smoker in our park but found it at the festival.

You need to buy tickets, called "Hogbacks" (why not Hogcash?…

Life on Holiday

If you are new to RVing, or have a history of staying in a couple of places over the year and don't typically travel, you may kind of know to book early-ish for remembrance and holiday weekends (typically Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day are the trifecta of camping craziness). You may know this. However, no one can properly prepare you for how ridiculously prepared you need to be if you have your eyes on an area, particularly if that area involves the words "State" and "Park" in it. Let's back this fun bus up: how crazy are we talking?…

Ally Puppy

We haven't updated in a while because we have gone through a loss that we knew was coming but we were still thrown off by it. We did the research, prepared as much as we could, hired hospice during the last health scare, made judgement calls and enjoyed our time together as much as we could. And even with that, life sometimes sticks its middle finger up at you and says "But can you handle THIS?" Knowing what was going on with Ally internally, we opted to drive from Wyoming to Fort Collins CO to ensure we had access to in-home…

Let’s Get Physical

After over a year on the road full-time and working full-time, even after spending time outdoors, you'll find that your body could be in a rut. Many campgrounds don't have gyms, or they do have them but with nominal and/or non-working equipment. When it's nice out, yay! You can bike, hike, walk, play tennis, run, all outdoors. But if you hit monsoon season, or if you're in the Pacific Northwest where it rains often (um, every single day), or are in a place colder than you want, you want to find something to do indoors. Outdoor tennis courts run by town parks…

Campgrounds 2

So, we've told you our tale of our favorite campgrounds here. We loved them all for so many different reasons. Now's the time to tell you about campgrounds that celebrate mediocrity. Remember when we told you how reviews are subjective here? Well, despite doing the research, sometimes there's nothing you can do but experience it first-hand. Sometimes the heart wants what the heart wants no matter what the gut tells you. Consider this to be the Razzies of GeekRV. The only thing contributing to these rating is our subjective selves. Take it or leave it. Are these the worst campgrounds…

Rise up!

Our lovely Nala kitty loved sleeping in the booth of the RV. We suspect it was corner buttery feel of the booth itself, but who knows. That was kind of the problem - she was the only one who chose to use it. Chris used it as a desk but it was out of necessity than want. We had to face the fact that other than a "cat sleeping area" it wasn't functional. When we tried eating at it, we knocked knees and the surface was too small. So no, not functional at all.

Tank Cleaning

We decided to research people who cleaned out tanks because our grey tank always showed 33% full, despite being completely empty. We knew there had to be something on the sensor. We tried Dawn, this solution, that solution, water, filling it, emptying it, getting the suds up, draining them, hot water, cold water, luke warm water, et cetera. And yet, each time, it jumped from 8% to 33% as it was emptying. We knew we had to bring in the big guns. We thought of trying to clean it ourselves. It meant we needed to buy a couple of tools…
