Tear Drop Trailer Summer 2018

We are going to have some new adventures next year when we take out our tear drop trailer. I have tried to convince Robert  we need a trailer for a while. But we just couldn’t agree on anything. The Debate: Trailer / Motor Home / Tent Trailer Trailer: PRO: Already packed; Hook up and go; Once on site, unhook and go; can stop anywhere and go to bed; CON: Need a truck, poor mileage, big Motor home: PRO: Already packed; One vehicle/ no towing; Can stop anywhere and go to bed; CON: Poor mileage; Cannot leave site without removing vehicle; harder to get around Tent-trailer: PRO: Already packed; Can pull with car; Better mileage, already packed; CON: Set-up I am pro trailer I love the ease showing up, un-hooking and your good to go. You still have a vehicle to whip around in. It stays packed when you aren’t using it. Which is why I wanted to get away from tenting. And I found a solution that was a happy middle ground. A Tear Drop Trailer. Small enough the …

Hike in Camping at the Gem Lakes, Saskatchewan

It’s not surprising because they are well hidden and although they are in a provincial park in Canada they are relatively unadvertised.

My husband and I made a quick camping trip to Cypress Hills Interprovincial park, then upped our game huge and went to Wateron National Park where we got a taste of and a hankering to go hike in wilderness camping. We were going to go to Waterton again because we had heard that some of the best fishing is hike in… But we decided that our virgin trip into the …

Akumal Beach 2014

Swimming with the Turtles, Akumal Beach, Mexico

A gorgeous morning, a beach, flippers… what more could a girl ask for?! Certainly my husband was all about the turtles. He has a running joke that we did not go to Mexico to get married (but we did), but we went to Mexico so we could swim with turtles. As soon as he found out this was a possibility in during our trip planning, he became obsessed. Obsessed. No joke. So of course when there we had to find a way. We went on an all day excursion the afternoon was filled with touring the ancient city of Tulum. The bus ride from our resort was short. It was the first time my husband and I had been on a trip outside Canada together, and seeing Mexico in the daylight was an awaking. The beach was beautiful, we did get to actually swim with turtles as they were in the area, as well as other fish life. Tip for the ladies, do not where a string bikini, I believe there are a fair number …
