Travels With Minnie: There’s No Place Like Home

There really is no place like home…that’s true for me at least. Friends of ours know those “happy to be home” feelings don’t last long with Reg. He’d just as soon sell the house and live the nomadic life. That is not a lifestyle he can have with me. I insist on a home base.
That being said, we managed to make a comfortable home within Minnie’s walls for the last 2 month. I thought it would be fun to share all our campsites with any of you who might be planning an extended camping trip of your own. A little inspiration perhaps. We cheated just twice with hotel rooms, once for convenience and once to avoid the Nevada heat.

With all the recent talk of increased RV and travel trailer sales, we were worried that finding space might prove difficult. Traveling in early spring with no firm plan seemed to help. We chose to drive a more northerly route first and found most campgrounds with plenty of open spaces. Not wanting to get stuck in a Walmart parking lot or roadside rest stop, we reserved 2-4 days in advance. There’s a limit to how much we’ll rough it.
Thanks to all who followed along with us. We plan to be back with more adventures soon.

  1. Thanks for all the lovely photos and naratives, Sue. I’m with you , the polar opposite of my big brother. My roots grow deep! The only way I could be without house is on a sailboat, now that I can do.

    What fun it’s been to ride along with you! I especially like Minnie’s connection to Reg’s mom. That’s really sweet! See you soon-before you take off again!

    It’s taken me a while to get to look at this. You found some great spots! A bit of me misses the days of traveling with our camper van, particularly the unexpected discoveries as we criss-crossed the US & Canada. Enjoy your adventures and thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks for “traveling” along with us Elaine. The unexpected discoveries are always the most memorable. We saw significantly more camper vans this time out. Very trendy these days.
