Tips, Planning, and Safety

Camping Tips

Keep in the mind that you may be far from home on lonely roads or hiking where things can go wrong. Cell phone coverage may be non-existent and you may be on your own.
Bad Weather
Be prepared, especially in the mountains.
Where to Go
I prefer scenic national, state and provincial treasures. I have listed many of them by state or province to help you plan. I broke them down by east of the Mississippi, west of the Mississippi, or Canada.

Where to Stay
Having stayed in 43 states in National Park camp grounds, State campgrounds, provincial campgrounds, and private campgrounds, I have my preferences. I now try to look at park reviews before I choose a place (e.g. RV Park Reviews online).

It may take longer than you think.

I share how much it cost me for each trip broken down by category.
