A Perfect Mountain Escape
By Corey Grant

Private Membership RV Resorts & Campgrounds Living in this day and age, most people are looking for an escape; a retreat from their Ipods, their Blackberrys, their TiVos, DVDS, Notebooks, Notepads, and everything that beeps, rings, blares, lights up, or powers down. Most of us feel over worked, over processed, over loaded, stressed, swamped, and burned out. But there is an antidote to the craziness that we all get caught up in. There are secret, quiet places throughout the country that provide what a weary soul needs; beautiful scenery, relaxation, fresh air, and calming peace and quiet. And we think we have found such a place-- a destination that is a welcome relief from the fast pace of the hectic world, where you can take a breath and sink back into nature.

Mark...My Words
By Mark Nemeth

Hi, folks:

Welcome to summer and another great year of RVing. I hope you are out there enjoying all the wonderful RVing and camping opportunities this great country offers. Keep those questions coming!

Hi, Mark,
As we are aware, when disconnecting a battery, one should disconnect the negative side first, then the positive, and reverse that order when reconnecting. However, how does it work when there are two 12-volt batteries connected in parallel? Which battery would you disconnect the ground from first? Would you disconnect the negative on the battery that the coach negative cable is connected to first, followed by that same battery's positive cable? Then disconnect the ground from the second battery followed by the positive?

Tales of the City - Camping in a Variety of Environments

Campers and RVers are unquestionably some of the most mobile people in the world. In fact, many full-time RVers spend their entire life traveling from place to place. While mobility is clearly one of the things that makes RVing so appealing, it also means that you'll inevitably find yourself in places that are very different from what you're used to. The introductions to each environment are from our book by Woodall's entitled "Camping and RVing with Dogs". We discuss different environments in great depth in the book. In this article…

Top picks in new outdoor equipment

By Stuart Bourdon

Every year we see hundreds of examples of new camping equipment from stoves to footwear and everything in between. Some new gear really wows us, while others leave us wondering why the manufacturer even bothered, and it seems as if we're getting more selective than ever before. It's not that there isn't a lot of great gear out there, but this list should be reserved for our favorites, the few things that stuck with us months...
