One year of blogging and this article has been by far my most viewed post.  As I celebrate the end of the year I thought it would be worth reposting my top blogs.  Thanks for all your support.

We have only had our travel trailer for one camping season but have quickly realized that gray water is one of the biggest challenges, especially when dry camping. We didn’t  experience this problem in our tent trailer because we didn’t have hot water nor a holding tank.

Towable Glamping at its Finest!

When the kids where younger and we headed out camping we would laugh and say it would have been easier to just put a hitch on the house and bring it along. It felt like we brought everything in it. Well this picture, that a friend sent me, would have worked great for us, and the luxury would have been nice. Can anyone relate?

Thanks Teresa M. for the Pin.
