Central Florida is a great place to hang out and "try new things"! Some are easy, some not so much, and some are just not worth trying

BEST WAY TO TRAVEL WITH BIKES - BIKING IN THE KEYS - HOW WE DO IT

We love our bikes!

The main reason is that I think these bikes work SO well for kids.  They are lightweight, and have multiple speeds, because of this the kids are able to ride much farther and on more difficult terrain than if they had the standard 'huge mountain bike'.

If you go to any store, the only thing they have for kids are really, really heavy steel bikes.  These bikes are a wonderful alternative.

Also, because they fold up, we can neatly store them INSIDE the camper and not have to worry about them being rained on, or stolen.

RV SOLAR + RV GENERATOR - GET THE BEST RIG FOR BOONDOCKING - "HOW WE DO IT"!

Our first RV Solar installation had a glaring problem that I didn't realize until I researched the battery manufacturer website. Now that our solar setup is perfect, I want to run the AC anytime as well :)

In this video I show you the components we use for our solar, as well as the generator we carry so we can run anything in our camper anytime we like. The key is having the generator in a spot where you essentially forget about it until you want it.
