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.

If you have been traveling in an RV for a while you know that campground prices can be really expensive. Especially when they add up while you are on an extended vacation or traveling full-time. Here are some of the sites and apps we have found that can help with the expense of camping:
- Boondockers Welcome
- Passport America
- Good Sam Club
- National, Provincial, and State Parks
- Harvest Hosts
We've all got a lot more free time on our hands right now. So, it's a great time to make some renovations and/or modifications to your RV. We recently spoke with Boondockers Welcome host and guest, Acme71, about the extensive modifications he's made to his two rigs. Get ready, this is a post for all you gear-heads!
This week's blog post is brought to you by Tiny Shiny Home.
After nearly 5 years of full-time travel, we’ve experienced every type of campsite
imaginable. State parks, city parks, county parks, fancy private resorts, super
scary cramped parks, national parks…you name it. And while each of them serve
their purpose, many were not what we imagined when we started our adventure.
We've all gotten into our new RVs and thought...wow, that's a lot of brown! Most RVs feature a lot of wood, coupled with tan wallpaper and outdated valances. We would love to update our RV and help make it our own but who has time?
We love to hear from our hosts and guests about their experience using our site. Occasionally we have hosts that write in to tell us something unique they do for their guests. We spoke with Our3Acres who have only been members for a short time but they have some great advice for hosts and guests.

Are you a planner? Or do you prefer to blow with the wind? There are pros and cons to each travel style and, as we learned this week, things can go wrong, no matter which you choose.
Grand Canyon National Park is 100 years old this year! With all the added publicity, it may be even more difficult than usual to land a campsite in the park or a permit to hike and camp in the canyon. Straight from the pages of my Frugal Shunpiker’s Guide for RV Boondocking in Arizona, here are some tips that are sure to help.
