Free Camping near Grand Teton & Yellowstone

Today we’re going to talk about free camping. The free campsite I am bringing everyone today is located in Buffalo, WY. This is on a very popular route for many folks when traveling to visit either Yellowstone National Park or Grand Teton National Park. If you are headed that way, you should also check out our free campsite guide near Grand Teton National Park. It is just off the highway, Hwy 16, about 15 miles south of Buffalo. Crazy Woman Canyon is the name of this place. Most of the campsites are separated by trees, so there is plenty of seclusion. As you head down the canyon, you will see campsites on both sides of the road. Many sites on the left side of the road and backed by creeks and streams. Continue reading

Free Campsites Along Highway 1 in California

Hundreds of thousands of people vacation to California every year. That’s why today we are going to talk about free campsites in California. Nearly half of them drive down Highway 1 in search of beautiful coastlines, stringent hiking, and camping of course!Β  Today I am going to tell you about a quick, free camp site just along Hwy 1. The spot I am referring too is about 10 miles north of Santa Cruz on Highway 1. There are multiple pullouts along the highway in this area, though many of them have signs stating “No Parking – 10pm to 6am” or “No overnight camping”. You must be strategic in your selection of pullouts if you want to get the million dollar view for free.Β  Continue reading

Dometic Fridge Review – 23 Liter

Howdy gang! We hope everyone have been enjoying their summer. Today we are bringing you a Dometic fridge review. We have been using this Dometic fridge the past 2 years while on the road in our van. This will be a new section on our site aptly named “Stuff we use”.

We are going to be talking about the portable Dometic 23 Liter Fridge/Freezer combo. While this unit is a tad pricey, it sure beats out continually buying ice for that Yeti cooler you’ve been using. All you need is a 12v hookup (cigarette lighter port). Most vehicles have these standard, while others will chose to incorporate them into their solar system. Because of the 12v hookup, this fridge is practical for truckers, travelers, and van lifers alike.

Rubicon Trail at Wentworth Springs for Labor Day

Howdy gang, we went to Wentworth Springs on the Rubicon Trail for Labor Day. I know it’s been a week or so since our last post. Ok, maybe it’s been 2 weeks. But hey, I’m getting back in the groove. We headed out to one of our favorite places for a Labor Day weekend celebration; Wentworth Springs. WWS is located on the famous Rubicon Trail where jeepers and other off-roaders alike test the ability of their 4×4 rigs in a beautiful high Sierra environment. If you’ve been reading our stuff for awhile, you’ll remember when we took our 4×4 econoline on the Rubicon and it was quite the outing.

Downieville Mountain Biking Heaven

I’ve gotta be honest. I love Downieville mountain biking. We have done more mountain biking this summer than I ever have in my life. The majority of that mountain biking was downhill riding. We’ve been riding Northstar Resort here in Tahoe pretty regularly, about twice a week on average. To go with that, we have found a great free campsite just up the road from Northstar so we’re only a few minutes away each day. All that training and practicing at Northstar was going to come into play when Bailey’s mom told us that she had a family mountain biking getaway planned!

I had heard of the famed Downieville before, so I was anxious to get there and do some hauling ass. For those of you that didn’t catch Continue reading
