I love to plan family travel adventures with our four kids. Encouraging time in nature, National Parks travel, backpacking and hiking are my passions and I love to write about them.


  • Love it!! Van looks wonderful for travel. Our 1971 Golden Falcon is getting a new “bottom” tires, axle, electric and brakes. Just waiting for it to come back. So can hitch it and re learn how to back up. Thanks so much for all your posts. Have you been to Palo Dura Texas. Second largest canyon to Grand Canyon.

    PS I like you post gallery. Do you use wordpress?

      • Also, I am sure you’ve already done your research, but as a cost-effective option we opted for a magnetic backup camera that communicates with our iphones- we put it on only when we need it: when backing up to hitch up our popup camper, and then we can stick it on the back bumper of our popup when backing into a campsite. Sounds like you’ll be making use of yours more often, though!

        • Dave just finished installing the camera today. We went with one installed in the upper reverse light, but I think that the iPhone option is a great idea for occasional use. The fact that you can use it on both your car and your pop up makes it super convenient!
