We're about RVing, Trip Planning,
Workamping & Retirement

We are RVing Snowbirds - Niki, Jack, K.C. and B.B. We travel North to do a little Workamping in the Summertime and South to someplace warm and sunny for the cold months.

We've retired from a combined 50+ years in the customer service field and for the past 5 years we've joined the other road warriors to rediscover our America one stopover at a time.

We plan our trips North and South with different routes and campgrounds each time and set a leisurely pace for getting from here to there. We look for the best routes and best values for our retirement $$$ in campgrounds, restaurants, and sightseeing,

We spend at least 2 nights in each stopover (20 - 30 campgrounds each year) so we can discover a little of what makes each place special (and they all are).

Wherever we stop we have 2 questions. What is your favorite local mom -&- pop restaurant that has good food? Second question - what is your favorite place to show family and friends when they come to visit? You will be truly surprised when you choose to follow some of their suggestions.

Whenever we stop we take photos, write about our impressions, and post the mileages, costs, facts, and figures and other interesting things we find. We post trip reports on our Snowbird RV Trails Blog as we go and then post a summary and map on our website here after completing a trip.

We Workamp Summers because it's a great way to meet all of the campers and also for the no cost campsite and other amenities. The shorter working hours leave plenty of time for day trips and sightseeing in the area.  In the Fall, as the leaves start turning, we head South to warmer "Winter" days and more exploring and the other fun things we like to do.

We are glad you stopped by and invite you to look around our website. If we can help you with a route, restaurant, or stopover, send us a note. If you would like to come on board and travel with us a few miles, just click on "follow" on our Blog.

Your comments are always welcome and perhaps one day we will meet down the road. Until then safe travels and enjoy your journey,

Jack, Niki & "The Kids"

Bookin' it through Vermont
Three of our passions are seeing new places, enjoying good books, and finding great local places to have lunch (or dinner)! One of our hobbies that allows us to do all three is finding a new “Friends of the Library” book sale to visit, and what better place than a small town in Vermont.

Thunder rolled across the Adirondack Mountains this week

Creature Comforts vs that old sewer system!
Are you tired of fighting with the big slinky sewer hose and the challenge of trying to match your system to the difficult dump sites you encounter? Are you hesitant to hook up the electric macerators you see advertised? We definitely were and found an easier and much more painless solution.
(We've no connection with this manufacturer. These are just our findings and opinions.)

A Visit to the Pottersville Methodist Church Chicken BBQ Supper
Grab your ticket and join us as we discover great food and good fellowship at an old-fashioned Church supper. It's just the way they've done it in Adirondack Mountain small towns for a 100 years.
