My wife and our 14 year old love to explore! (And, now, our dog, too!) We've enjoyed every type of camping and have re-built an old Vanguard motorhome to suit the RV-style. Endless gruelling hours under, over and inside the thing have allowed us to spend an hour or two at the campfire. We're big into exploring whatever the area has to offer, and really enjoy the hikes, bikes, fishing, little town treasures and live music.
I know way more than I ever wanted to about 1979 Ford E350's. Also, RV plumbing and electrical.
We recently adopted a senior dog, who is loving life now that her needs are being met. She's a big girl, but she's the sweetest creature I may have ever had the privilege to spend time with, and I am grateful for the mutual joy since she's joined our family.
We usually stick to forestry service Rec sites, as well as a few gems in primitive county campgrounds. When in the US, we've spent a lot of time in the National Forests and BLM-type lands. Sometimes, stays in the commercial RV parks are on the list, but find it hard to swallow the fee for a glorified parking spot and get services that we don't require. We've spent the occasional overnight at a truck stop or an industrial land-poach in a pinch, but it usually costs us the relaxing atmosphere that we prefer. Looking forward to exploring more this way!

1979 Vanguard Class C Ford cutaway. The model is listed at 24', but actual measurements put it at about 25. Our gem has been named Bianca and has been lovingly and, sometimes, hatefully reconditioned to her former glory. One thing that time cannot erase is all of her scars, but we've done our best to make her look quite nice. We are completely self contained, with updated freshwater and wastewater systems, a large battery system, and reconditioned mechanical components. The result is a completely leak-free and self-contained unit that we're pretty fond of.
