Traveling And Camping In A Travel Trailer

Are you thinking about hitting the road, for the adventure of a lifetime? Perhaps you’ve always dreamed of visiting our magnificent national parks or spending a month or two exploring the coastline, camping near the beaches. While some hit the road with a dream of seeing as much of the country as possible, other campers want to find the perfect destination and spend their time relaxing and enjoying the pleasures of camping.

No matter what your plans are, RV camping makes a perfect way to enjoy the exciting outdoors. That type of joy comes easy, especially when you have the luxury of a self-contained home-away-from-home right there with you. What better way to experience the country than by visiting scenic campgrounds and enjoying the unique pleasures found while camping in the great outdoors? Camping with an RV is swiftly gaining in popularity, and as a result, more and more campgrounds are sprouting up all over the country to accommodate the adventuresome travelers and their RVs.

From the rugged mountains of the West to the pristine beaches along the coasts and everywhere in between, campgrounds with a host of exciting amenities await. Many have Olympic sized swimming pools, sandy beaches on beautiful lakes or access to ocean beaches for those who enjoy a summer swim. Most campgrounds are close to scenic wonders or recreation areas, so hiking, fishing, boating or even horseback riding are readily available to campers. Nature centers, wild crafting workshops, and church services are just some of the offerings at various campgrounds.

Your travel trailer provides you with a comfortable, safe environment for your exciting journey. It is truly like taking your home right along with you on your travels. You can hike and fish all day long, returning to a snug bed, functional kitchen and convenient bathroom where you can re-energize for your next adventures. Just imagine sitting around the campfire while enjoying not only hot dogs on a sharpened stick, but delicious side dishes prepared in your travel trailer’s convenient kitchen.

Travel trailers can make your camping experience almost worry-free. No need to wonder what the weather will be on your next stop, as you will never have to worry about the unpleasant experiences tent campers deal with during a thunderstorm or cold spell. A travel trailer assures that you have a roof over your head and all the comforts of home no matter where you are or what the weather is like. Just imagine the displeasure of sitting in a leaky tent on a cold, rainy day. Compare that to sitting comfortably in a cozy nook in your travel trailer; reading a book or watching TV while the wind howls and the rain comes pouring down!

Are you traveling with the kids or grand kids? They will love the pleasure of seeing new places and experiencing the beautiful outdoors. But, they will undoubtedly appreciate their comfortable beds and the variety of entertainment found right inside your travel trailer. There will be no complaining about cramped tent quarters, buggy or damp nights, or lack of a video game and TV! Camping with a travel trailer lets you introduce them to the wonders of the great outdoors without the inconveniences tent campers’ experience.

Travel Destinations and Adventures Around the World

For many people travel is a life-altering experience that can revive your mind, body and soul. It opens up a whole world of learning and discovering new things. Traveling is something that cannot be taught in a classroom, it is something that has to be experienced. A big part of the allure and adventure of travel is that it takes you away from your ordinary day-to-day existence and transports you to another part of the world that is new, exciting and some might even say magical. There is nothing like it and half the fun of taking a trip is in the planning. So pick a date and let the planning begin!

There are so many beautiful places to travel to all of which are distinctive and unique in their own right. You might find you have a dilemma on your hands if you cannot decide where it is that you want to go, but whatever you end up deciding it can be truly unforgettable not only to witness but also to actually experience other cultures. Depending on where you go some cultures are entirely different from what life is like as you know it while others are very similar. Embrace it and become a part of it for the short time that you are there.

When you are traveling, take some time out of your schedule to try to experience your destination the way the locals do. This will give you some excellent insight into the way the people actually live. After all the locals know which places are best for shopping to get the really good deals, the best restaurants to eat at where the food is authentic and is not way overpriced and the best places to see that only the locals would know about. Just make sure that you know what areas of the city are not safe. Almost every city has at least one of these areas so be aware of your surroundings and avoid these areas.

All too soon, your trip will be over and many of the memories that have been made will start to fade. A good way to help you preserve those memories is to write them down in a travel diary. It will not take much of your time, just a few minutes a day and will be well worth it. Also do not forget to take a ton of pictures, its true what they say; a picture is worth a thousand words. Then whenever you are feeling nostalgic about your trip you can just read through your diary and look at your pictures and the whole adventure will come flooding back to you.

 

Journey Back to the ‘Old West’ for a Scenic, Thrilling, Mountain Climbing, Scramble and Adventure!

It is without a doubt, that with plenty of sunshine and mild temperatures, the late fall and winter months in Arizona are ideal for getting outdoors and taking a desert journey, where not only can you explore its pristine and remote desert mountain wilderness regions, but also experience the legend and lore that still remains today of the ‘Old West’! Just a short drive from the Phoenix metro area, lies the rustic western town of Wickenburg, where once a booming gold mining town in the mid-late 1800’s, you’ll find yourself stepping back into the history of the “Old West”, and where you’ll also find yourself amazed and in awe of the rugged beauty of the town’s surrounding desert mountain landscape. So if you’re up for taking a journey for an experience of the ‘Old West’, an excellent hiking adventure that’s remote and off the beaten path with a thrilling, mountain climbing scramble, and plenty of gorgeous panoramic mountain top scenery, then I highly recommend you experience the Vulture Peak Hike, in the Vulture Mountains, just outside Wickenburg, Arizona.

It was on a beautiful late November weekend morning that I met up with the TLC Hiking Club at a meet up location in northwest Phoenix and by 8am, after all members had arrived, we set out our day’s journey together heading for the old town of Wickenburg on US Route 60. This relatively short desert drive out west to Wickenburg on US 60 was really part of the adventure on this day and after quickly arriving at the outskirts of town by 8:30am, we continued following the signs for US Route 60 through the central commercial corridor of town aptly named, Wickenburg Way.

Wickenburg, according to all historical accounts, was founded in 1863 when successful mine owner, Henry Wickenburg established the Vulture Mine after having discovering rich nuggets of gold that afterwards set off Arizona’s 1st gold rush. Shortly there later, more gold deposits were also found, and consequently more mines were established in the surrounding area and the town rapidly grew to become Arizona’s 3rd largest city and according to history, almost became the state’s 1st territorial capital! Today, as you pass through the central part of town on Wickenburg Way, you immediately notice all the old western buildings that still remain with antique shops, stores and galleries that line both sides of the street as the town still holds tightly onto its historical ‘old western’ lore and character even attracting many visitors worldwide each year to its famous cowboy dude ranches located near by. In fact, for anyone who’s an “Old West” history enthusiast, you can even take a self guided tour of the original and some would claim very “haunted” Vulture Mine, which is located 12 miles southwest of town on the Vulture Mine Road, and just 5 miles further down the road from Vulture Peak where our day’s journey and adventure was going to lead us.

After passing through town on US 60, aka Wickenburg Way, for roughly 2 1/2 miles, we came to the turn off for the Vulture Mine Road. We made a left and continued a scenic drive and journey out into the beautiful and very rugged looking Vulture Mountains. We thoroughly enjoyed the strolling drive through the rolling hills for roughly about 7.0 miles until we came to a sign on the left for the Vulture Peak Trail head. We made a left onto a well graded dirt road and drove for another ½ mile until we finally reached the large parking area and the trail head for the Vulture Peak Trail.

We had arrived at the Vulture Peak trail head by 9 am and after getting packed up and geared up, we quickly set off for Vulture Peak, which now stood before us looking very beautiful, yet also very massive and extremely rugged! From its main trailhead the Vulture Peak Trail begins as a gentle stroll along the desert floor for about 1 ¼ miles, first descending into then crossing through Syndicate Wash until at about 1.7 miles later you arrive at a signpost with a metal fence and gate behind it which is located at the trail’s Upper Trailhead, and which you can also access with a good 4WD vehicle should you want to do so.
