I want to welcome our newest followers, Sara who has a blog and is anticipating going fulltime in a couple of years and Doyle and Terri who are living historians and have several blogs.
I have been following several blogs over the past few years and wanted to share with my readers some of the interesting sites and information that I have recently found. Most everyone in the rv blog world is familiar with RV-Dreams. It is a great site set up by Howard and Linda who are some of the nicest folks in the world. I recently discovered Wheelingit which is Nina and Paul’s blog. It is chock full of information too. Both of these sites do wonderful campground reviews when rvparkreviews isn’t quite enough. Laurie and Odel have a wonderful blog and have set up a separate blog reviewing the campgrounds where they have stayed. There are other bloggers who have done this and I may do it also when we finally hit the road to help us remember where we’ve been. Another site that Gin likes for "techie" stuff is Jack Mayer.
One of the things that I have often thought would be helpful is a central website for all of the National Parks, National Forests, COE Parks, State Parks and other public campgrounds. I’m not talking about Reserve America either. Well Nina had a link to US campgrounds that looks like it may be very helpful in our trip planning.
Other things that I have gleaned from my reading but you may want to double check before accepting as fact pertain to State Parks. Some Ohio State Parks accept Passport America discounts. Alabama State Parks offer monthly rates during the winter. They also offer senior/disabled discounts. Arkansas State Parks offer half price for disabled persons. Louisiana State Parks may honor the National Park Senior/Access Pass. You may have to be a resident to get some of these great discounts.
Many State Parks add a day use fee per person along with the cg fees. If they offer an annual Park Pass like Texas does, it will offset this added fee after a few uses. New Mexico State Parks offers an annual Camping Permit so that you don’t really have to pay for camping. You pay a small fee for electricity only. If you stay in their parks, it’ll pay for itself in 23 days.
These tidbits of information can help stretch a buck and the blogs and websites are definitely worth checking out. Anyone else want to share some of their great internet finds?
Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.
