Reliving a Great Adventure

Friday night, Becka and I arrived at Dick’s RV Park in Great Falls, Montana. We will rendezvous with other RVers for a sixty-three day tour of Canada and Alaska. A get acquainted party is planned the night before departing Great Falls on the Fourth of July.  Thirty-eight adventurous travelers plus four Adventure Caravan guides and staff make up the caravan. For logistical purposes, the caravan is limited to only twenty RVs. Each RV may tow a vehicle.

Our group is the first of two Adventure Caravan tours that include the Calgary Stampede; billed as the world’s largest rodeo. It was twenty years ago that I attended my first Stampede. Riding my motorcycle from San Antonio to Calgary and back in twenty-one days. I enjoyed the ride and the rodeo but missed much of the scenic beauty of the Northwest.

I made a promise to go again. Twenty years later, here I am following the same trail, but at a much slower pace. We look forward to participating in the many celebrations of Canada’s 150th Birthday.

 

Golden Shore

Home is where the RV is parked; the mantra of a full-time RVer. Today’s post is about where full-time RVers park their home on wheels. There are RV resorts where one rents a spot on a weekly or monthly basis. Campgrounds provide daily camping where tents are allowed. Then there are trailer parks, which will be another post. Costs vary by location and the amenities offered, just like hotels.

After 10 years of the RV lifestyle, I’ve had the opportunity to stay in some of the worst and the best! One of the best was Golden Shore RV Resort in downtown Long Beach, 101 Golden Shore. This is a small boutique 5 Star Resort that is nestled on the water’s edge with a view of the Queen Mary, only blocks from the Catalina Ferry. I spent a fun-filled two weeks there in June of 2012. If you go, don’t be surprised to be parked next to a million dollar custom motor coach of the rich and famous.
