The World At Your Doorstep Part 7: Motorhome Touring - A Culinary Holiday?

Posted by on 25 May 2010 | 0 Comments

We open this article with a bit of a confession: Kay and I are, by most standards, a bit over the top in our enthusiastic interest in the preparation and consumption of interesting food. Terms such as gourmet, connoisseur, bon viveur (French), gourmand, bon vivant (French), epicure, gastronome or, our personal favorite, “foodie” are all probably applicable.

Posted by on 25 May 2010 | 0 Comments

For many the kitchen, or galley, is the most controversial area in a rental motorhome. Love it or hate it, use it or ignore it, the fact is a small kitchen will be traveling with you on your holiday.

The World At Your Doorstep Part 6: What Clothing Should You Bring?

Posted by on 25 May 2010 | 0 Comments

Think Casual & Comfortable. When motorhoming, casual dress is the custom, the norm. Casual and comfortable. An interesting dichotomy in motorhome touring is that, more than any other travel style, you will almost always have room enough to bring excessive quantities of clothing . . . and yet there may be no style of travel in which there is less need for a diversified wardrobe.

The World At Your Doorstep Part 5: The Planning Process - First Things First

Posted by on 22 May 2010 | 0 Comments

The first step in planning your motorhome touring holiday is, perhaps obviously, that of deciding where – and when – you will be planning to go. Many of you already know the answers to the “where and when”, but here are some things to consider for those who are still trying to figure that out (and to help polish the thinking of those who already have made their decisions):

The World At Your Doorstep Part 4: When To Start Planning Your Motorhome Holiday

Posted by Dave & Kay Corby on 20 May 2010 | 0 Comments

Sometimes “less is more” . . . and that is certainly true in planning the basics of your motorhome touring holiday. By giving up the freedom of waiting until the last minute to reserve your motorhome/caravan/RV you will – generally speaking – increase the geographic options available, you will have a wider variety of motorhomes to choose from, and you will expand your pricing options.

So, just how important is advance planning . . . and how far in advance should you plan? The admittedly unsatisfactory answer is “it depends”. It depends on where you are traveling and when. It depends on where you want to stay and on how specific you are about the sort of motorhome you want go touring in.

The World At Your Doorstep Part 3: The Motorhome Holiday Planning Process

Posted by Dave & Kay Corby on 18 May 2010 | 0 Comments

Holidays begin before they ever actually start – there is heightened anticipation and an increase in eagerness as the traveler begins the planning process. The vacation becomes more tangible as plans are fleshed out, new layers of detail penciled in. Planning is more than the developing of a scheduling roadmap for a physical journey.

The World At Your Doorstep Part 2: Why Go Touring in a Motorhome?

Posted by Dave & Kay Corby on 14 May 2010 | 0 Comments

They seem to be everywhere; you can hardly miss seeing them – these houses on wheels. A part of you wonders about the people inside: What are they doing in there? Where are they going? Why have they chosen such a seemingly awkward means of travel?

The World At Your Doorstep Part 1: An Introduction

Posted by Dave & Kay Corby on 12 May 2010 | 0 Comments

A family vacation in the late 50’s was my introduction to RV travel. From Kansas to the Pacific Ocean and back. The Grand Canyon, Disneyland, Pismo Beach, Yosemite National Park, the Great Salt Lake, Grand Tetons and Yellowstone! Four people in a 16 foot Shasta (yellow with really cool silver wings on the back), no bathroom, sleeping arrangements a bit cramped . . . and the closest to heaven I had then ever been. Though I suppose I didn’t realize it at the time, I was hooked!
