Lake Mead

Jaime challenged me to find a new destination during our stay at Lake Powell. Maybe somewhere warm where we could paddle. Checking the map and Campendium.com I found a great free spot on Lake Mead – Stewarts Point. We really didn’t know much about the area but ended up really liking it. Our site was […]

Lake Powell

A relatively short drive from Cottonwood took us back up to Lone Rock Campground on Lake Powell. I had wanted to explore the slot canyons in the area but couldn’t find any easy boondocking so we came back to the same spot we stayed in this past spring. The views of the Lake here are […]

Sedona/Cottonwood

From Goosenecks we headed Southwest to Cottonwood outside of Sedona. We had stayed last Spring at the Verde Valley Thousand Trails and it was one of our favorites but a little hard to get into because many people feel the same way. Jaime managed to get us a two week reservation which went by pretty quickly. […]

Goosenecks State Park

From Moab we headed South towards Valley of The Gods. We had originally planned to boondock down a dirt road but Jaime’s iPhone failed to direct us correctly and my GPS POI had us going up the wrong direction. Seeing signs for Goosenecks State Park, I made a gametime decision to check it out. For […]

Moab

We first visited Moab in 2009 in our travel trailer. Moab is a mecca for hiking, mountain biking, and offroad adventuring with two amazing National Parks (Arches and Canyonlands).  Our friends Denny and Veronica from RV Outlawz posted some pretty great pictures of their stay there and with the usual fall dampness setting in, we decided […]

La Conner

La Conner was one of our favorite Thousand Trails from last year. We had decided to head south to Moab but made a little detour to get up here to soak in a little early fall sun. The first few days did not disappoint. We hiked the rocky beaches, paddled our boards, and enjoyed the […]

YouTube Channel

We’ve added a new Away We Winnebago YouTube channel.  We aren’t planning on Vlogging but will be posting short videos on the places we visit. Please check it out if you are bored. Here’s the first video on the awesome waterfalls of McDowell Creek here in Oregon:

Back to Pac City

The heat wave and smoke continued into September so we decided to make a break for the coast. We first booked Thousand Trails South Jetty but decided to go back to Pacific City after Kirk and Anya told us about some recent thefts at South Jetty. The beach here is a Crosby favorite and just […]

The Eclipse

Besides a trip up to Olympic National Park, this summer has been about hanging out with family in Oregon and the main event – the full eclipse on August 21. We stayed twice at the Bend-Sunriver Thousand Trails and got to meet up with RV friends who were also in Oregon for the eclipse.   […]

Olympic National Park

From Pacific City, we headed up the coast to Ocean Shores, Washington. We passed through some epic scenery but didn’t stop as Google told us we had at least a five hour drive. The Washington portion of Highway 101 was especially curvy and bouncy. We have learned to be wary of opening cabinets after a […]
