We've mentioned iOverlander in two other blog posts (Top 5 Camping Apps and How to Find Free and Discounted RV Parking) but it is such a great app for finding boondocking locations we thought it deserved it's own post.

When you're first starting the RV life it can be very overwhelming. Checklists for departing, arriving, etc. can be very helpful in ensuring you don't make mistakes. After a while, it seems to become second nature but even a seasoned RVer can benefit from having a checklist. We've posted a few articles recently about common mistakes RVers make, having a checklist can certainly help to prevent some of those mistakes.
We know there are many RVers out there that enjoy their walkie-talkies (hello parking communication!). We've personally used them when in areas with little reception while caravaning or while parking the RV. That's why we were happy when Midland Radio reached out to us to offer our members a discount as well as an informative blog post. Read all the way through for a discount code to purchase your own radio.
Some of you may have had the privilege of staying at Alabama Vagabonds' host location, Big Daddy's Grill, Fish River Paradise. If you have, you will know that these hosts have been waiting several years to live out their RVing dreams. Well, they finally sold the business and are currently living life on the road. While we're extremely sad to lose such a great host, we are so happy they now get to be guests. Such is the purpose of this great community! With over 178 glowing references, we know you will miss them as well but have no fear, he may be visiting you soon. See our interview with him below.
Boondockers Welcome was originally designed to offer guests a safe place to boondock for a night or two. As we grew, so did our hosts' generosity with many offering electric and water. However, some guests may not realize what is needed to take advantage of a host's generous offer. Thankfully GTS1544, a popular host, has written a very informative article on what guests should prepare to bring in order to connect properly to a hosts' electric or water connections.

Traveling in an RV can be stressful sometimes, especially when you're a newbie. Creating a checklist to review before you depart each location can help alleviate some of the stress so you can focus on more of the fun! Our friends at RV Repair Club have created a great checklist to help you get on the road faster and safer.
The current global pandemic has resulted in the cancellation of travel plans for thousands, if not millions of people. It also adds a degree of uncertainty to future travel plans. People have been left asking when traveling can resume as normal, or if things will ever be the same.
