Campfire Cooking for Foodies Foodies love camping too

Loving the great outdoors does not eliminate your love of gourmet cooking as well. However, fine dining can be more challenging when cooking in an RV or over a campfire. However, with a little bit of planning and creativity you too can perfect gourmet campfire cooking.

Make ahead and freeze

OK, so there are some things that are just a wee bit difficult when in the great outdoors to throw together. For example, if you’re looking to pull off an exquisite pasta dish, that complicated sauce may be a bit much. However, many sauces can be made from the comfort of your home kitchen and then frozen for quick prep over the campfire. This technique also works great for soups. Cut the mess in the RV or campsite by making [...]

Beginner Paddleboarding Tips The perfect outdoor adventure

In recent years, paddleboarding has grown rapidly in popularity. Many people are adopting this fun water activity, and the fitness and adventure it provides. Paddleboarding is a budget-friendly activity – and you don’t even have to invest in a board! Many state parks offer paddleboard rentals. If you do choose to invest in a paddleboard, consider getting an inflatable board. These boards will take up far less space in your RV as you travel.

Paddleboarding is a great activity for a wide range of ages and skills. You don’t have to stand up on a paddleboard! You can choose to sit, kneel, stand or even do yoga based on your own balance.

5 Ways to Improve RV Gas Mileage The Painful Pump

Safe Water Recreation Water Risks

In recent years, Washington has ranked in the top 5 for all states for boating fatalities. This is not a ranking we want to see repeated this summer! However, as temperatures rise many head to the water for relief and refreshment. However, even when the temps skyrocket past 100, the water temperatures can remain quite frigid due to mountain run-off. In fact, many rivers will still have temps in the 40’s or 50’s (and sometimes colder!) right now. This is especially true with the cooler spring we had this year. These temperatures can easily cause cold-water shock, which can lead to drowning.

Be Safe, Wear a Life Jacket

Even the most experienced boater and swimmer should wear a life jacket when out on the water. In particular, small craft such as kayaks, canoes [...]

Wildlife safety is vitally important both for you and for wildlife. You should be concerned not only about your own well-being, but the preservation of the environment wildlife calls home. It is true that most wildlife prefer to avoid humans; however, wildlife will attack when they feel threatened. Before we talk about precautions for specific types of wildlife, there are a few general rules of wildlife safety to follow.

Keep your distance

Coming home with that perfect may be enticing, but when it comes to wildlife it’s important to maintain your distance. When you’re exploring, stick to trails, especially in the early morning, evening or at night. Wildlife typically understands trails to be high human traffic areas and avoids them.

Distance is especially important if you run into young [...]
