There’s a Storm Coming…

How many of you have changed your plans recently? I know I have. I blogged last month that I would be adding about 20 to 25 new RV campground reviews starting this spring through summer. Well, that’s all changed. I had a plan to drive from southeast Texas to Northern California end of March (tenContinue reading “There’s a Storm Coming…”

Oh Bother!

Requisite chores when you’re full-time “Oh, bother!” as Pooh would say. People excitedly comment on the amount of freedom I have living full time in a motorhome and traveling but it’s not all a life of leisure. I find there are still a few items of responsibility I must endure and have recently met theContinue reading “Oh Bother!”

Dellanera RV Park, Galveston Island, TX

Dellanera is a beach front RV Park just west of the busy part of Galveston where the piers and attractions are and is run by the City. I think if I had originally had a site on the west end of the park rather than the east end, I would have been happier and stayedContinue reading “Dellanera RV Park, Galveston Island, TX”

Fall/Winter 2019 Update

Dear Followers of Animals Aboard: You are probably wondering why you haven’t seen any updates. I have been going back to parks to stay that I’ve already reviewed so haven’t been adding to the resources. I will actually have some sightseeing updates in the next 3 weeks and also one new RV Park update. Then,Continue reading “Fall/Winter 2019 Update”

Big Dogs in Tiny Places — An Essay

I’ve written in the past about my life spent moving a lot and also about gravitating toward tinier places to live, such as shared housing or renting small abodes. Today, as I once again stumbled over my dog as I was trying to make breakfast, I thought, “I’ll bet there are other people who liveContinue reading “Big Dogs in Tiny Places — An Essay”

Escapees Turkey Creek RV Village, Hollister, MO

Don’t let the Hollister address dissuade you as this RV Park is really only 3 minutes away from Branson Landing and historic downtown Branson. I like the fact that it’s across the bridge and not right in town yet so convenient to all the shows, shopping, and museums. If you aren’t an Escapees member, theContinue reading “Escapees Turkey Creek RV Village, Hollister, MO”

Trailer Village RV Park, Roswell, NM

I only stayed here for one quick overnight because there wasn’t much area to walk the dogs at all. There were a few small green areas but they were part of the landscaping. Everything else was gravel and dirt. This RV Park boasts the best and least expensive souvenir shop in Roswell and Roswell isContinue reading “Trailer Village RV Park, Roswell, NM”

Chupadera Mountain View RV Park, San Antonio, New Mexico

There use to be an RV park listed in this vicinity called Bosque Birdwatchers RV Park. It appears that one is no longer here but this new one has opened recently and serves the same clientele. This is just on the edge of the Bosque Del Apache National Wildlife Refuge. The very personable owners toldContinue reading “Chupadera Mountain View RV Park, San Antonio, New Mexico”

The Bark Rangers at Petrified Forest National Park

We toured Petrified Forest National Park in early April by motorhome. Our first stop was the Painted Desert Visitor Center. There are several buildings here with a gift shop, restaurant and a bookstore/ranger station. I went in to the ranger station to get a map and to get my two Bark Rangers registered. Although whileContinue reading “The Bark Rangers at Petrified Forest National Park”

Holbrook/Petrified Forest KOA, Holbrook, AZ

I stayed here for 3 nights and would consider a long term stay at this KOA. The sites are spacious, there are nice amenities, there are many restaurants nearby, and the National Park is 23 miles away. Although we had terrible weather while here, with winds gusting up to 50 mph, I could still seeContinue reading “Holbrook/Petrified Forest KOA, Holbrook, AZ”
