Nothing beats a great weekend at the campground, especially when you can bring your best friend with you. Camping with dogs (or other pets) means thinking ahead. Just when we bring young children, pet friendly vacations need to be well planned. There are a lot of special considerations we need to make when we bring our furry family along. Let’s look at a few often-overlooked concerns of pet friendly camping.
We all enjoy our time outdoors. The fresh air, beautiful landscapes and the stress-free lifestyle that comes with getting back to nature does great things for us. How much better would it be if we could bring our best friends with us? You can! Follow along as we look at how others have incorporated pets into their camping world!
Women RVing on their own is becoming increasingly popular. There are even national networks and a slew of blogs made just for the solo lady. The women who choose to go it alone come from many walks of life but they all tend to love the outdoors and the sense of freedom they get from the experience.
There is a common stereotype about RV owners. When most people think of who is driving an RV, they think of an old retired, married guy in his 50’s. This demographic is not far off from recently collected demographics, but it certainly is not the whole truth. According to a University of Central Florida journal, women make more than 20% of the RV owning community. Let us take a look at a few of the more famous motor home owning ladies!
Have you looked at your RV medical kit lately? Is it just some box of stuff that you bought at the drugstore a few years ago, then stashed in the bathroom and never looked at? Perhaps you have a hodgepodge of band aids, tweezers and ointments here and there scattered throughout the compartment. The odds are good that the band aids in that all-in-one first aid box have dry rotted and are stuck to the paper wrapping, and in the case of an actual medical emergency, gathering all the things you need that are in this cabinet and that drawer, will take more time than it should.
Medical emergencies can happen anywhere, at any time, in so many forms. Every day somewhere in the world something tragic happens; a child accidentally falls into a bucket, or someone clutches at their chest in pain. Frequently these dreadful moments occur when medical help is not immediately on hand and those who are near are the victim’s only hope of survival.
Congratulations! You’re a new RV owner and are itching to head out on your first adventure. But wait, not so fast! That RV may be missing some essentials. You don’t want to get to your camping destination and find out you don’t have some critical items. We did some research and asked RV veterans what the top “must have” pieces of gear they would recommend to the new RVer.
If you are reading this, you may well be a veteran RV owner, and you have likely poured over thousands of pages through the years to figure out what the ideal RV setup is. You have all the best RV bloggers on your favorites page, you can quote length, capacity, run-times of every make, model and year for all the best RV’s that have rolled on our great highways. You know it inside and out, and you can describe in great detail why Class B RVs are (the best, the worst... you know best), and why you MUST have certain pieces of gear that didn’t come with your RV.
While scrolling through Facebook, Pinterest, or any of our favorite social media outlets we see all these amazing pet portraits. Everywhere we look, there are dogs that are smiling, cats who are majestically sprawled across perfectly made beds, and fine feathered friends posing on perches. You have a handsome pet, so why not break out the camera and give it a whirl, right?
Staying at the campground, or in your RV for Christmas shouldn’t dull your holiday spirit! You’ve escaped the huge yard to decorate, and you only have a few walls to work with, but these great DIY holiday projects will brighten your Christmas season!
